Mario’s Castle Calamity is a compilation of failed attempts my Mario (Or other interchangable characters) to destroy a castle, mostly resulting in a comical backfire that spares the castle and/or hurts Mario (and other bystanders) in the process. The common golden rule of any and all parodies of this series is that the castle is impervious to any form of damage and/or is left standing at the end.


Mario’s Castle Calamity was a flash video created by NewGrounds User “Bigfoot3290” AKA Jeremy Simms and uploaded on on January 3, 2009. The video is based on the game “Super Mario World”, where in game, after defeating the boss, Mario then demolishes the castle. Since it was uploaded, has gathered over 1.4 million views and has accrued an average rating of 4.42 of 5 stars from over 43000 votes. Simms then created and uploaded a sequel to the series on June 12, 2010. Though it didn’t garner as many views as the predecessor, it was still popular, receiving an average rating of 4.4 of 5 stars by over 16000 votes.


Mario’s Castle Calamity hit Youtube shortly afterwards, resulting in multiple parodies of the series.
