    Well, you know what they say. The road to success is paved with hardships.

    And a trail of blood and dead turtles.

    Or somethinbg like that.

    I'd like to take a stab at making a pun but in all seriousness, I have to hand it to Mario. He really gets the point. But I mustache a question. If it hurts so bad, why did you jump into the star? Why did you jump, man?

    Stop a giant turtle, save a princess, breathe underwater, breathe in space, shoot fire from hands, kill small woodland creature with no remorse, overshadow younger brother, can't handle a little cut from a star…
    Who am I supposed to feel sorry for? O_o

    That is not the correct way to catch a throwing star…Trust me

    Temporary invincibility that ends in nothing but pain and death for you and everyone around you?

    There's a deep metaphor for SOMETHING in there somewhere…

    Well at least he can patch up his own hand, as he is DR MARIOOO!!!

    :antijoke chicken:: 2,600-7,200 degrees C mario should be burning

    No pain, no gain.

    Psh, Kirby turned injuring yourself to invulnerability into a this sentence is poorly worded thing before I knew what Mario was.

    (If you can identify which Kirby 64 combo I am talking about you don't get anything because I ate all the cookies)

  14. FutureGentlman on February 10th, 2012 5:08 pm

    So…He's invincible but he's also taking damage…

  15. Axel X on February 10th, 2012 5:26 pm

    Only the cosmos knows how a Rainbow Star works…

  16. Oddwan on February 10th, 2012 5:48 pm

    Blood magic! Of course, that's how he does it!

  17. Master_Xehanort on February 10th, 2012 5:52 pm

    I used to be an italian plumber like you, then I took a Starman to the hand.

    (Please don't murder me horribly.)

    Starring in games is getting more dangerous by the minute…

  20. ChaosController on February 10th, 2012 7:10 pm

    At least it didn't land on his head.

    rel="nofollow">Also here's more Star-Mario hilarity.

  21. PvtDisposable on February 10th, 2012 7:22 pm

    Upon being punctured by the star, a brief period of ecstasy ensued where Mario felt higher than a kite. This was followed by an epileptic fit so powerful that his legs moved on their own accord.

  22. Gamerofloz on February 10th, 2012 8:46 pm

    I rached the last panel, then laughed as I thought about the fact the invincibility theme could be Mario screaming in pain…


  23. C__F on February 10th, 2012 9:46 pm

    Next time he should just use his head. The rel="nofollow">ensuing amnesia always alleviates things.

  24. Zortsport on February 10th, 2012 10:41 pm

    That's why Mann Co liquidizes power stars before using them to make bonk. Why have one stab wound in your hand, when you can have a bunch inside you?

  25. Omnomynous on February 11th, 2012 7:44 pm

    What Mario says:


    What Gamers hear:
    "Doo doo doo dododododo! Doo doo doo dododododo!

    What the Halolz people hear:

    He should of worn thicker gloves……
