The character in the original game in Japanese was already transgender. English and German translations were changed in 2004 to get rid of it. This is the original script Nintendo wrote back in 2004 for the original release.

I’m not saying I agree with it or like it. That’s just factual information. Y’all can downvote me all you want, it’s still the truth

Yeah, I’m sure Nintendo in 2004 was getting into trans characters.

I mean, they were. It’s literally the original Japanese script. Not saying I like it or agree with it. That’s just the facts

I don't ever recall Mario having a bulge in his overalls.

No, that’s just a twist and Samus is based off of Ellen Ripley and Ridley is named after Ridley Scott. Not Woke at all.

Well Birdo is different and acknowledged as a freak in the continuity.

“Now their usual bullying feels heavier”…


Well there it is… embracing gender dysphoria as a fundamental component of one’s identity will increase the weight of the world that a child takes onto their shoulders. They are just stating it outright now; transgenderism will weaken the ones inflicted by it

Incorrect, and it pissed LGBTQ activists off.

"The other notable example, again involving Nintendo’s English language localisation, is the 2004 game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door for the Gamecube. Vivian, the youngest member of the Shadow Group, is described in her description as “”One of the Shadow Group, Vivian appears to be a girl but is really a boy. Her sisters at times call her a man as a way to insult her and the game generally presents her as female, but having previously been male, and implying that because of that she is not truly female. Naturally, this was again removed in the English version, where she is referenced simply as female."

Ruh roe Raggy!

You think the OP cares about confused individuals being "misgendered"?

That same page says that it’s a boy who presents themselves as a girl but is called a boy as an insult by its sisters. So it was a transgender in 2004
