Rants - MARIO, FUR IS MURDER! PETA vs. Super Mario 3D Land
November 16, 2011
Q: Which Video Game Character Would You Arrest? On What Charges?
Mario, Fur is Murder! Black Nerd Rants on PETA vs. Super Mario 3D Land -- The Nintendo 3DS video game Super Mario 3D Land brings back the classic Tanooki suit, which has angered PETA who believes Mario endorses skinning animals and wearing their fur. Not only do I agree (or don't I?) but I also give other valid arguments on why Mario hurts animals and is a horrible person.

FROM WIKIPEDIA: Super Mario 3D Land is a platform game that has been described by game designer Shigeru Miyamoto as a "3D Mario that plays as a 2D Mario game." As such, Super Mario 3D Land combines the elements of traditional side-scrolling Mario titles, such as linear-based levels, with those of the modern open world Mario titles, such as moving Mario in three dimensions and performing a variety of actions. The game offers a number of traditional Mario items, such as the Super Mushroom, Fire Flower, and Starman, along with new power-ups that bestow a special suit onto Mario that grants him new abilities. Some revealed power-ups include the Super Leaf from Super Mario Bros. 3, which allows Mario to turn into Tanooki Mario and attack with his raccoon-like tail and float in the air; the Statue Leaf, which allows him to turn into a statue; and the Propeller Box, which acts similarly to the Propeller Block and the Propeller Mushroom from New Super Mario Bros. Wii, allowing Mario to reach high places. Also revealed is the Boomerang Flower that lets Mario become Boomerang Mario and allows him to throw boomerangs. Later revealed is the Question Box, a suit which has an appearance similar to the Question blocks, which allows Mario to collect coins by walking around while he wears it.
FROM PETA: When on a mission to rescue the pricness, Mario has been known to use any means necessary to defeat his enemy - even wearing the skin of a raccoon dog to give him special powers. Tanooki may be just a "suit" in Mario games, but in real life, tanuki are raccoon dogs who are skinned alive for their fur. By wearing Tanooki, Mario is sending the message that it's OK to wear fur.
