Bing Bing Wahoo is a phonetic spelling of the noises made by Mario in Super Mario games, notably Super Mario 64, when he collects coins and jumps. The phrase grew popular on the 4chan board /v/ in 2016, coinciding with announcement of the Nintendo Switch and Super Mario Odyssey, and has been used as an insult for Nintendo fans.


On October 6th, 2016, an anonymous user in a /v/ thread posted the phrase[1] with a picture of Paper Mario (shown below).

Two weeks later,[2] after the Nintendo Switch's first commercial was released, an image of a man playing the Switch on an airplane became the subject of a running gag in the community, imagining the man upsetting nearby passengers by playing a Mario game on the Switch.

This was the origin of a characterization of Nintendo fans as immature and irritating, exemplified by the noises made in a typical Mario platformer. One of the most popular plays on the joke, posted to Twitter on October 30th, 2016,[3] took an image of a person playing a Switch at a party with annoyed looking onlookers (shown below).

A play on the same joke would be posted again on March 1st, 2017 to /v/ (shown below). A screenshot of this joke was later posted to Facebook meme page Carl Wheezer: Meme Dealer.[4]

Eventually, the phrase "Bing Bing Wahoo" would turn into slang for Mario and the Switch itself, particularly as the release date for Super Mario Odyssey neared (examples shown below).

    I'm starting to see this one all over /v/ and Twitter. +1 work.

    Also, possibly unintentional origin in 2011?

  • a - 6 years ago

    The thing is, he used to make those sorts of vocal grunts, like any other Mario. It's only recent games in the subseries that have "decided" that Paper Mario is completely mute.
