I recently discovered that even on the original NES, defeating any of the Bowsers in the first 7 castles with fireballs will turn them into various enemies before they fall into the lava pit... The very first Bowser turns into a Goomba, while Lakitu is the real boss behind castle #5. I can't believe I never knew this...
|The backgrounds and graphics were also updated in Super Mario
All-Stars, with a fortified castle wall serving as an appropriate backdrop
for World 8-3, right before Bowser's castle.|
|Complete Super Mario Bros, and the Princess sends you on a "Second Quest". (Basically the same adventure all over again, the game has replaced all Goombas with Buzzy Beetles, and Koopa Troopas now move quicker.) In the Super Mario All-Stars ending of the first Super Mario Bros
game, after defeating Bowser Koopa, a Super Mushroom falls from the sky
so that full-sized Mario can share a dignified kiss with the
Princess... (Kinda like the Mushroom Kindgom equivalent of Viagra...)|
The Super Mario All-Stars ending has the Princess is dangling from a cage over a lava pit, with a slight update in text. It's about time we got a room, Princess...
