With the stretched out clothes and his expression, Go seems a lot younger than he normally does.

That's a bit of innocence gone.

Oh.... wow. The reality of how this turned out actually makes me a little sad. It's like when the Joker got shot in the alternate telling.... "That's not funny.... that's not...." Well.... Sure proved me wrong. Roll on I suppose.

Ok, maybe Haze was actually hitting on Guy. The weirdest thing here is that I am looking forward for Haze next visit too the Chainless.

PS: Good joke Aikidoka

Wow. That was pretty awesome how they totally just took out the Birdo like that.

@Grimlock13: Yeah, I was kinda thinking that too. This is going to get people talking for sure...

Is Guy shuddering? Couldn't say that I blame him.

Also, seen at Sakura Con 2011:
S.O.U.P.ern00b 27th Apr 2011, 9:40 AM edit delete reply
Just had a thought (uh-oh!). Since Haze an Charlie are essentially now unemployed thugs, are they going to be recurring unimportant characters, like most of Family Guy's characters (greased-up deaf guy, etc.), or recurring characters that seem unimportant but have value later in the story, similar to Johnny (Akiba) in the Metal Gear Solid series?

If they do, S.O.U.P.ern00b, we won't know until it's too late.

I am still waiting to see Go actually kick some ass. He needs to grow some balls and actually fight; because, that would be awesome. I get the whole self-confidence feeling but time to get over it

@Mohawkian: seeing your first kill is just part of growing up, once go gets over this i think we'll really see him be a true fighter/pirate
possible loose ends with the rest of the gang... that is if birdo's really dead

Is palma going to freak out about killing birdo?
BurningFinger!!!!!!! 27th Apr 2011, 3:23 PM edit delete reply
So this is the part where I would steal Birdo's wallet. Guess me and Martello think alike. Of course, I'd also burn down the warehouse, but that's just on the off chance that the buildings around it catch on fire.
SneakQQ 27th Apr 2011, 3:33 PM edit delete reply
So it's true... they killed her/him.
Bonz0 27th Apr 2011, 3:34 PM edit delete reply
I was actually hoping these guys would become reoccurring foes like in the Mario RPGs. They would get stronger just like the Chainless and become more experienced.

I feel like they never really got to show us their true power. They just sort of punched and kicked at our heroes. I was hoping they would appear later on and Birdo would start using fireballs. Haze could use his Dayzee magic to make his opponents fall asleep while fighting and Charlie has dozens of different abilities to choose from. The Charging Chucks probably had the most moves out of any other Mario enemy ever created. She not only has the potential to become very strong but also very agile--the Chucks could jump as high as the Mario Bros. if I'm not mistaken. They also had quite a few projectile weapons they would use. If she made use of these she would have a greater chance of doing some damage since she wouldn't have to engage the much more capable hand to hand fighter McCoy in fisticuffs.

They might even expand their ranks and become a full on team of Psycho Rangers.

Hmm...assuming Birdo is dead, Haze would be the counterpart to Guy (finesse, precision, dodging skills)and Martello would be the counterpart to Charlie (both represent elite troops in the koopa army and utilize several fighting techniques and weapons), we still need a skilled martial artist for McCoy, a Genius Bruiser for Palma and a magician for Go.

Perhaps a magikoopa for the last one? Or maybe a non-koopa like a Wizerd. Perhaps even a Shadow Siren.

As for someone who is both smart and strong, maybe a Hyper Goomba? A ton of the most intelligent, informed characters in the RPGS have been goombas. Palma reminds me of Goombella when shes talks about the traits of Shy Guys or the history of whatever location they inhabit at the moment,like she did at the Piranha Plant Lab. And they would both have brightly colored skin...so, yeah.

I can't think of many species that would make good martial artists. All that comes to mind really are the ones from the first two Paper Mario games. Something about an evil Toad who uses martial arts just strikes me as awkward..

Gayzee Dayzee. Unless it's a female, which I'm assuming it's not since it has a beard.

I didn't get to mentioning this at the barfight update, but since the lack of variety in the Chargin Chuck repetoire has come up again. Were there any folding chairs in that bar? Or is a belated "Mah Gawd King!" in order?

Ahahaha... Comic update AND an NCIS joke. Totally made up for the ACT I had to take today. You guys rock!

Has anyone considered that jumping on someone's head until they die is way more messy and violent than garroting them?
Grimlock13 27th Apr 2011, 11:28 PM edit delete reply
I was wondering why you would say something like that, until I remembered that this was a part of the Mario universe.

Martial artist: Whatever species Master Jinx was in the first Mario RPG.
Bonz0 28th Apr 2011, 12:21 AM edit delete reply
Ah, yes, Mario RPG. One of the very few great Mario games that I missed out on since it was released long before I knew what a videogame was and by the time I got into videogames it was nowhere to be found.

Other Mario games I've missed, such as the first five Super Mario games, I was able to enjoy because they were remade into anniversary packs or released on the Gameboy line.

I really should get around to playing that game. Unfortunately I feel like it would be pointless since it's popularity has pretty much spoiled all the best parts of the game for me. I'm aware of all the bosses and characters. There would be no surprises, really.

Mr. Vareel
This is a rude wake up call coming to tell you that 1UP Mushrooms and Boos are common sights in the Mushroom Kingdom. Well...maybe not common, but both can be found without too much difficulty. So even if Birdo is dead, that probably won’t stop her from making a comeback. Λnd even if she doesn’t, she was just a minor character anyway (albeit one with great potential). This was supposed to be a story arc between two major plots, wasn’t it? Λt least I THINK I remember Morgenstern saying that somewhere…
Becker 28th Apr 2011, 12:27 PM edit delete reply
@Mr. Vareel: I remember somthing like that too, but it would have been interesting to see Birdo's gang grow and evolve from constantly fighting with Martello's crew, even if they just pop back up to battle them right before Martello and crew go into a boss fight.
Also, if Birdo really is dead, I think that the Haze and Charging Chuck should join the main enemy that the crew will be fighting. Honestly, I just don't want them to just up and disappear.
Mr. Vareel 28th Apr 2011, 3:19 PM edit delete reply
Mr. Vareel
@Becker: I agree with you on the idea that the Birdo gang (or at least its remnants) should make another appearance. I also think that Haze and Charlie joining some other enemy of the Chainless is a good idea (story wise). That, however, is where our agreement ends. I don't see any of the Birdo gang making more than one or two more appearances, regardless of how important those appearances are. Λnd if there is a reoccurring enemy of the Chainless (I do hope there is), I would imagine that enemy would be either a lone wolf or a group that doesn’t take on new members (that didn’t come out the way I wanted it to). In other words, the Birdo gang wouldn’t be affiliated with the reoccurring enemy, whatever it may be. Before I get any flak for this comment, I would also like to point out that I could be (and probably am) completely wrong.

Some of the species and subspecies from Mario RPG appeared in a form or another in the Paper Mario series, but unfortunately not Master Jinx species.

I dunno, I vagually remember them blowing their last nemesis up and nobody in the crew had problems with it.

@RedΛuthar: Your comment used vague pronouns and didn't seem to be a response to a particular comment. For the sake of understanding, could you please be a bit more specific in at least one of those areas.

@ Vareel ^^^ he is talking about Thrive*
Bonz0 29th Apr 2011, 3:16 PM edit delete reply
Because Thrive was a Complete Monster that was bent on destroying civilization. Also, Thrive didn't seem to really feel pain. It was just like blowing up a tree.

Birdo was a flesh and blood sentient person that could feel pain and was much less of a threat than Thrive. He's just a gangster. They HAD to completely destroy Thrive to defeat him. Not so with Birdo.
Secret Agent 000 29th Apr 2011, 6:39 PM edit delete reply
WEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLL, they kinda didn't COMPLETELY destroy him...though they DID try, and don't really know that they didn't...
Also, the gender-unspecified Birdo was pink. That changes everything.
Also, Go was probably a little more concerned with the Captain's health and the VERY minor fact that the building was going to combust any minute, and that they would have to therefore have to GTFO if they wanted to survive.
