Well, the Saturday morning cartoon would seem to conflict with the official explanation...

So the Mushroom People from the Mushroom Kingdom are, in fact, mushrooms? Quelle bloody surprise.

I dunno, that's the distressed facial expression I'd expect from someone who just got the tip of their head blown off.

How many times does a misspelling have to be used before you stop pointing it out?

Really. Who the hell thought they were wearing hats?

If their heads are that large it would explain their affinity for vests over t-shirts.

But the question of "are 1-Ups and Powerups disembodied heads?!" still not answered...

Well, to be fair... have we even seen her boobs, yet?

So mushrooms reproduce with spores.. So if toad has an orgasm, his spores would shoot down out of his head, right?

Also- I think why Mario has nipples but no belly button is because Mario and Luigi are clones. When one dies, a replacement is sent up through a pipe, fully aware of their past. So, in a way, Mario and Luigi are Cylons.

A better question: Is Mario really just a demonic hat that's been riding a plumber for the past few decades.

I mean...the power-up mushrooms do have eyes, after all (but so does practically everything else, depending on which game you're playing).
Yes, I've decided it's now head-canon. Mario is consuming baby Toads to feed his insatiable thirst for power and the blood of koopas.

/but seriously, who thought it was a hat?

This scene was the first thing I thought of! Then Toad cries into it.

But it's called the mushroom's "cap".......so......

I would have to assume that every time Mario gets a mushroom, he's eating brains.
