EDIT: To all billion of you upset about the volume of the character "voices" compared to the actual song, send your complaints to the original creator of the song. I simply animated to the MP3 I had, and couldn't alter it in any way. There's nothing I could've done to change it, sorry.

This was a little idea I came up with practically on a whim last Sunday. I finished the whole thing in a little under a week, and I think it turned out pretty well. Back in 2004, a dude by the name of Martin Hagwell, also known as "Märta" made a song out of the BGM from the "Forest Maze" level from Super Mario RPG for the SNES. Just recently, he remixed the song he created into a full-fledged professional sounding song, titled "Rawest Forest". After finding the song by chance last weekend thanks to a YouTube video, I took a listen, and got the idea for this movie. Mario RPG is one of my absolute favorite games of ALL time, and I know it inside and out. Those who know the game as well as I do will catch all of the references scattered throughout the animation. I also used this as a test to try out some new little tricks with animation. The good majority of the movie is frame-by-frame, and yes, I know the drawings're a little crappy (I don't have a tabley, unfortunately), but I enjoyed working on it throughout my last full week of High School (YAY), and it doubled as the final for my animation class, so that's even better! Anyway, hope you enjoy it for what it is. I certainly had a ball.


I kno one of the References,

one of the references i know is that when Geno did his Geno Whirl and when it hit him it Flashed, the reason for this is because he hit a critical but u usually cant do criticals on bosses but this was a bug in the game,
the other one was that when peach was saying she wants to marry mario Bowser tried to kiss mario becuz in the game when shes in the chapel with Booster u hafta get her stuff fast and depending ur time a diffrent person kisses u, if ur fast, Peach, if ur moderate, Bowser, and i think it ur slow Booster and Bowser :)

lol i love this song

Great Job!

I had never played the game, but I am addicted to the flash and the song!

Nice and simple

This is genius! I remember this is a type of music. Like the song was just a tune, but now is a song. You are genius for uploading this and the creator is a genius also! I need more words o..................................

I finally understand most of this stuff.

BTW, Exor is NOT Immune to Geno Whirl's special effect.
