マリオが海外で「本当はヒドイ奴」と話題 「ヨッシーにヒドい」「ルイージ巻き込むな」


マリオといえば、古くはファミコンの時代から世界中で大人気のキャラクター。ピーチ姫を助けるために奮闘する愛すべきヒーローなのだが...よくよく考えてみると、やってることはかなり酷い!?その勝手な理由を<Ranker>が紹介している。


・落ちそうになるとヨッシーを見捨てて自分だけ助かろうとする。
ヨッシーほど献身的で我欲の無いキャラが、過去に存在しただろうか? 背中に乗せてくれるし、身代わりになってくれるし、マリオはもう少し彼に感謝すべきである。よく見るとキノピオも両手で中指を突き立てて怒っている!

・赤ちゃんゴリラを容赦なく殺そうとする。
「ドンキーコングJr.」では、ただただ囚われの父ゴリラを助けたいだけの健気なJr.を叩き落としたりと、ひどい仕打ち。動物を虐待するマリオ!



・自分の彼女を助けるために弟を付き合わせる。
自分の彼女(ピーチ姫)を助けるために、実の弟をあんな気持ちの悪い王国に付き合わせるって、よく考えるとかなり勝手である。爆弾は飛んでくるし、変なキノコ食わされるし、遺伝子操作された亀みたい生き物が襲って来るし...。3回死んでも大丈夫とはいえ、まったく割に合わない仕事だ。そもそも有無も言わせず自分の2番手に位置づけ、しかもピーチ姫がルイージに感謝する所なんて誰か見たことがあるか? 男も男ならその女も女で、ろくなもんじゃない。

・やっぱりヨッシーの扱いが酷い
卵から生まれた瞬間に背中にまたがって乗り回し、フォアグラの鴨みたいに何でも無理矢理食わせ、長距離移動に利用するなんて立派な虐待である。さらに、こともあろうか島の他の恐竜たちを殺しまくるなんて、どう考えてもテロリストだ。そもそも勝手に侵略めいたことをしているのだから命を狙われるのは当たり前。あまりにも視野狭窄で自己中心的だが、よく仲間たちもこんな奴に付き合っているものだ。



・ピーチ姫さらわれ過ぎ
先ほども言ったように、ピーチ姫も大概ろくなもんじゃない。何度もさらわれるなんて、よっぽどのバカなのか? マリオが助けに行くからいいものの、こんなに誘拐されていてはいつ殺されてもおかしくない。マリオもマリオで、わざわざ助けにいかなくても済むようセキュリティーをちゃんとすべきなのだが、配管工のくせろくに仕事もしないし、セキュリティのことなんてまともに考えたことが無いのだろう。

...さて、つまりマリオは、キノコを食べてムクムクと大きくなったり、ハイになったり、デスレース(マリオカート)に興じたりとマトモなことを何ひとつしていないし、一時は薬を大量投与する(ドクターマリオ)など、犯罪にまで手を出していた。
そもそもまともに金を稼ぐ気がないのだろう。そりゃそうだ、金なら空中に浮かんでるわブロック叩けばチャリンチャリン出てくるわで、金銭感覚も麻痺するというもの。実は金を拾いにいくのが本当の目的で、口実のためピーチをわざと誘拐させているのでは? なんて説もあるくらいだ。

基本どのシリーズでもやっていることは、侵略・強奪・殺戮・虐待・薬物乱用なわけで、犯罪者のレッテルは免れない! あと余計かもしれないが、敵味方構わずパーティに誘う(マリオパーティ)というのもいかがなものか。自分の都合ばかりで、まったく気が使えていないではないか。

※これらはすべてネタですのでご勘弁を。

Puffin

SEAHOUSES, ENGLAND - JUNE 24:  A Puffin returns to it's nest on a cliff top on June 24, 2011 on Inner Farne, England. The Farne Islands, which are run by the National Trust, are situated two to three miles off the Northumberland coastline. The archipeligo of 16-28 separate islands (depending on the tide) make the summer home to approximately 100,000 pairs of breeding seabirds including around 36,000 Puffins, 32,000 Guillemots and 2,000 pairs of Arctic Terns. The species of birds which nest in internationally important numbers include Shag, Sandwich Tern and Arctic Tern. The coastline around The Farnes are also the breeding ground to one of Europe's largest Grey Seal colonies with around 4,000 adults giving birth to 1500 pups every year.

SKOMER ISLAND, UNITED KINGDOM - JULY 20:  An adult Puffin flaps its wings on Skomer Island on July 20, 2010 in Pembrokeshire, Wales. The island which has the biggest Puffin colony in Southern Britain plays host to over 10,000 Puffins, who come from April to the end of July to breed. The small island, off the coast of southwest Wales and managed by the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, is one of the most important and accessible seabird breeding sites in Europe and has become a Mecca for wildlife and bird lovers. As well as the Puffins the island is also home to a large breeding seabird population, including Manx Shearwaters, Guillemots, and Razorbills as well as birds of prey including Owls, Kestrels and Falcons. As a result Skomer is a National Nature Reserve, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Protection Area. Much of Skomer has also been designated an Ancient Monument and it is also surrounded by a Marine Nature Reserve.
