......what are some of your favorite examples, and who do you like to play as? For me, the Bowser levels in Paper Mario: Thousand-Year Door will always be legendary. Having him as an actual party member in Super Paper Mario is also fantastic, but the ridiculous factor is slightly less because the game is actually balanced around him as a party member rather than just being an incredible joke level with steaks. I do love getting the gold stars in SPM as Bowser though because then he gets so enormous that this 8-bit monster takes up half the level. 10/10 best playable character. Playing as Peach is often a treat in games where she's available, too. Particularly enjoy her playable segments in PM64 when she guest-stars on a quiz show, and she was always my favorite in All-Stars.
