Mario"s renowned "gay Bowser" line isn"t in Super Mario 3D All-Stars" version of Super Mario 64 - and also fans are waving a sad goodbye.

You are watching: What does mario say

In the original N64 masteritem, Mario shouts "so long, gay Bowser!" as he chucks Bowser in the final boss fight. Here"s just how it sounds:


Fans invested years trying to work-related out what the dialogue was going for - or also if it was being heard properly. Time passed, the line became a meme, and we all moved on.

Until April 2019, as soon as Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario, took to Twitter to insist Mario is saying "so long kinga Bowser!", but no-one bought that. A fan restoration publiburned in July 2020 renders it sound even even more prefer Mario is saying "gay Bowser".

As reported by Kotaku, Mario does not say "gay Bowser" or anything of the kind in the Mario 64 that"s in Super Mario 3D All-Stars on Nintenperform Switch. Instead, Mario claims "buh-bye!" as he throws Bowser. And, it seems, that"s because Nintendo has actually emulated the Super Mario 64 Shindou Pak Taiou version for the arsenal.

The little-recognized Super Mario 64 Shindou Pak Taiou variation was released in Japan in 1997, a year after the original, and has some crucial differences. One of these is Mario claims "buh-bye!" as he throws Bowser, and that"s supposedly bereason Bowser is known as King Kooper in Japan, and so the "gay Bowser" line had to be reinserted.
