PlotEdit

Chapter 0: The AttackEdit

Peach invites Mario to her castle for some cake. Mario goes to her castle and sees her standing outside. All of a sudden, Bowser and Kammy koopa appear and attack the castle. Mario fights Kammy and Kammy falls. Bowser collects her and activates a device that seals Toad Town in a force-field. He flies off, leaving Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toadsworth, and all of Toad Town trapped. Toadsworth informs Mario of a secret path under Toad Town that he should be able to escape through. Mario jumps into the sewers to find help.

Chapter 1: Dragons in DungeonsEdit

Mario emerges from the tunnels on the other side of the force-field, in Flora Path. He runs west, to Flora Village. At the entrance, he encounters a strange creature calling himself King Fuzzy. Mario defeats him and enters the village. The entire village is distraught, but refuse to tell Mario why. Mario speaks to the mayor, Goomblissa, and discovers that there have been recent disappearances in the village. Several Miners, working in Peril Cave to the West, have disappeared. A search party of twelve, including Goomblissa's husband, Goomberton, was sent to investigate, but they disappeared as well. Rumours have begun to spread of a dragon residing in the cave. Mario offers to investigate in the condition that Flora Village aid in the Toad Town issue. Goomblissa's daughter Goombalicia overhears and demands to come along and help her father. She refuses to take no for an answer, so Goomblissa allows her to go along. Mario and Goombalicia enter the cave and work their way down. In the deepest sanctum of the cave, Mario and Goombalicia discover the dragon: a Garchomp! Mario and Goombalicia battle the Garchomp and defeat it. The duo discover the missing villagers, among them Goomberton. Goomberton shows them a strange altar room where there lie two floating gems: one gold and one black. Thinking they may be useful, Mario takes them. Goombalicia is able to reason with her parents so that they allow her to travel with Mario. With that, the duo returns to Toad town.

Princess Peach watches out her window to Bowser's Castle, wishing Mario luck.

Bowser prepares to take Toad Town hostage when he realizes that he has sealed himself out! the only person who can deactivate the spell is kammy, and she is incapacitated from her fight with Mario.

Luigi sits at home, thinking about everything he and Mario have done. How Mario is always better that him. Suddenly, he gets an idea and gets to work.

Chapter 2: Driest DesertEdit

Mario and Goombalicia return to the village and learn from Toadsworth that the jewels they picked up are balance crystals, which protect various sections of the Mushroom Kingdom from entropy. they always exist in pairs: positive and negative. The positive represents all that is good, and the negative represents all that is evil. Moving the crystals does not cause any negative effect, unless the two representing an area are separated, shortly after which the protected area will collapse. Toadsworth believes that the gems may be the key to dispelling the force-field. He explains that the next pair is located in Dune Desert to the North. Heading through the sewers, Goombalicia and Mario head to Dune village. They leave the village to Dune Desert, where they discover a Dry Bones being harassed by three pokeys: Red Pokey, Green Pokey, and Blue Pokey, the Pokey Squad. Mario and Goombalicia beat them in a fight and they run away. The Dry Bones introduces himself as Dry Bert, an archaeologist who has searched for the tomb of Dry Queen Ruina for 569 years. He agrees to join the heroes on their endeavour in exchange for helping him uncover Ruina's tomb. The trio travel through the desert and uncover Ruina's tomb. They enter, and in the deepest section lies Queen Ruina... and two more balance Crystals! Ruina is reanimated and attacks the group. The heroes fend her off and grab the crystals, then run off.

Back at the castle, Peach analyzes myths and rumours about the crystals, which Toadsworth informed her about. Peach, reading through a book, discovers that Bowser's castle houses a pair of the jewels! She decides she must inform Mario as soon as he returns, and waits for him.

Bowser finds that Kammy has made a full recovery. She casts a spell on Bowser to boost his power. On that note, Bowser rampages down Ash Road, which leads to Toad Town, and jumps into the sewers. He smashes a boulder that completely blocked the tunnel to Toad Town, and leaps to the surface.

Luigi hears commotion outside and discovers that Bowser is attacking Toad Town. He attempts to stop Bowser, but is swatted aside like a bug. Bowser steals Princess Peach and jumps back through the sewers and dashes to his castle. Luigi, fuming with rage, runs back home, to a sewing machine, where he begins to work.

Chapter 3: Old EnemiesEdit

Mario and company return to Toad Town, where Toadsworth informs them that Bowser has attacked. Without a thought, the group jumps into the sewers and heads East. They surface on Ash Road, where they head into Dark Land. At the edge of Bowser's castle, the team finds the Guardian Koopa, a Koopa in thick armour holding a spear. They defeat him and he runs away crying. The team enters the Castle and works their way around Bowser's traps. In the dungeon, the group finds koopelle, a rebel Koopa who joins the team. On the roof of the castle, they find Bowser, chasing Peach, trying to get her to marry him. He spots Mario and challenges him to a fight for Peach. Mario wins, and Peach shows him to the basement, where another pair of crystals awaits. The group obtains the crystals and head back to Toad Town.

Back at Toad Town, Peach uses the crystals to lower the barrier over Toad Town. She thanks Mario and heads back to her castle.

Kammy takes Bowser to his room and casts healing spells on him. Bowser, angered, vows to destroy Mario... sometime.

Luigi exits his house, holding a bag. He travels to the southern section on town and activates a strange device. After activating it, a strange temple rises from the ground. Luigi enters the temple.

Chapter 4: MysteryEdit

Toadsworth goes to Mario's house and informs him that a temple has surfaced in Toad Town. He believes it may be the revered "Mystery Temple" of ancient tales. Mario and group enter the temple to investigate, and discover that it is impossibly large on the inside. The group explores the mazelike temple, and encounters a mysterious Toad named Mr. Mystere. He challenges the group to the rite of battle. Mario wins and Mystere is indebted to him and joins his team. Along the way, the group meets a squad of ROBs led by the green ROB Virium. Mario and friends battle virium, and his body explodes, revealing that he is not in fact a ROB, but a disembodied ROB head with wires for "feet". He flees. Soon thereafter, Mario and co. discover another set of crystals. Before they can obtain them, Luigi jumps out of the shadows and grabs the negative crystal. He announces that he's tired of living in Mario's shadow and is turning to the dark side, if it's the only way to get any respect. Mario and Luigi battle and end in a stalemate. Luigi dashes off with the crystal, and the temple begins to succumb to entropy. Mario and friends escape in time to see the temple's collapse.

Peach is in her castle, when there is a strange sound. Peach dashes to the window to discover that the entire castle has been torn from the ground and is in midair, stolen by Luigi.

Bowser learn's of Luigi's feat, and gets a call from Luigi, asking if he'd like to be Luigi's subordinate. He disagrees, and storms off in a huff.

Luigi walks through Peach's castle and finds Peach. He gloats, and tells her that his plan will soon come into effect.

Chapter 5: The caves of GlacexEdit

Mario and friends come to the realization that Luigi will try to get the other crystals. They learn from Toadsworth that one pair is located in Glacex, a Northeastern icecap. The team heads to ash Road, and, cutting through Fear Manor and battling King Boo, to Glacex. In Glacex City, mario and Co. encounter a young Blizzard named Milly. She intimidates Mario into letting her join the party. After leaving Glacex city, they move across the Glacex fields, battling the Pokey squad on the way, to the Ice Cave, guarded by the Guardian koopa, who is sporting wings. the group fights through the Ice Cave, and encounters Slipice, an oversized Freezie. They defeat him and collest the crystals before returning to Toad Town.

Peach sneaks through the castle and discovers Luigi, then eavesdrops on his phone conversation, hearing him make some kind of deal.

Bowser walks into Kammy's room to discover her packing. She tells him that she, and several of Bowser's minions, have agreed to work under Luigi as henchmen. Shocked, Bowser storms away.

Luigi begins to pour the dark energy of his crystal into Peach's castle, expanding it and surrounding it with a dark lair.

Chapter 6: DeceptionEdit

Toadsworth informs the group that the next crystals are in the Electrode region, which is completely sealed off. However, there is a reliable helicopter pilot who will fly the group across to the region. The team enters the helicopter, and after flying for as while, start to wonder why the flight is taking so long. They discover that the pilot has been replaced with two of Bowser's ex-minions. They are then dropped from the aircraft. the team lands on Volca Flare Island, which is a remote island inhabited by a civilisation of Yoshis and Cheep-Cheeps, currently in a state of panic over a teenager named Chipchip, who has fallen ill. He is believed to have been cursed by the deity Flaron. The group collects several ingredients for a cure in the jungle, encountering Kammy on the way, and they heal Chipchip, who allies himself with Mario. The islanders still believe that Flaron is wrathful, and Mario and friends decide to investigate. They enter Volca Volcano, and discover Flaron, a massive stone beast who is apparently insane. He attacks Mario and friends, who fight back and calm Flaron, who takes on a docile form. Flaron explains that he was enraged because Volca Flare's negative crystal has been stolen. The group quickly takes the positive crystal and flees before the island's collapse. Chipchip carries everyone over the water back to Toad Town.

Peach sees Luigi leaving the castle. She attempts to take his two crystals, but is caught and stopped by Kammy.

Bowser, distraught, calls up Luigi and agrees to serve under him.

Luigi arrives at the Toad Town Harbour, where he meets a ROB on a large boat. He claims to have a proposition for Virium, and sails off.

Chapter 7: The Power of ViriumEdit

The heroes arrive at Toad Town harbour, and they find a large ship awaiting. Toadsworth is aboard the ship, and he explains that the ship's captain has agreed to take them to the Electrode region. The group is hesitant, especially considering the last time they were offered a ride to Electrode, and that the captain is a ROB, just like those the heroes encountered at the Mystery temple. The ship brings them to Electrode Village, where the Mayor explains that an opressive ruler - none other than Virium - is dominating the entire region, and charging massive taxes. Mario and company decide to hit two birds with one stone and stop Virium while seeking out the crystals. The team heads through Electrode Valley, encountering the Guardian Koopa (with a spiked helmet) and Virium's ROB henchman, Ririal. In the southernmost portion of Electrode Valley lies the great gap, a mechanical castle located underground. The group enters the gap, and they find Virium at the bottom. After a short battle, Virium is exhausted, and he overtakes the body of Mario's current companion to manipulate them in battle. Mario defeats his controlled companion, and Virium loses his grip. Mario takes the positive crystal, but Virium gets the negative crystal and runs. Mario and friends flee before the great gap collapses. With Electrode Village safe, the heroes return to Toad Town and prepare to attack Luigi.

Peach overhears Luigi talking about a conference and decides to eavesdrop.

Bowser, with a new uniform, prepares himself for Luigi's conference.

Luigi confers with Bowser, Kammy, Virium, and the Guardian Koopa. They realize that Mario is coming and decide to prepare themselves for battle.

Chapter 8: The Ultimate ChallengeEdit

Mario and his allies use the positive crystals to breach Luigi's Castle and storm in. No sooner have they entered than has Bowser stolen All of the negative crystals, running off. Mario and friends proceed through the castle, battling the Pokey Squad, Guardian Koopa, Kammy, and Bowser. They find Peach, and she guides them to the roof, where Luigi awaits. He absorbs all of the negative crystals, as the Mushroom Kingdom collapses. Mario is beaten back easily, until Peach advises him to beat Luigi at his own game. Mario absorbs the positive crystals, and he, his companions, and Luigi take to the skies for an epic final battle. Mario wins, and Luigi releases all of the Negative energy inside him. Mario is angry, but Peach convinces him to forgive Luigi. The two brothers reunite, the crystals are returned, the Mushroom Kingdom reforms, and Peach's Castle returns to the ground.

Enemies who possess flight cannot be harmed by land-based attacks. Spiked enemies damage Mario and friends if they attempt to use a jumping attack. Status Effects are special conditions which can be inflicted on the heroes, or other enemies. Enemies on the Ceiling are immune to most attacks. If the Ceiling or Flight sections are listed as "Partial", the enemy possesses the quality, but it can be removed.
