The Mushroom Kingdom (MK), also known as Mushroomland, is the primary setting for Nintendo's Super Mario video game and multimedia franchise. It is a monarchy ruled by Princess Peach Toadstool and is the current home of the Mario Bros.

History[]

While the origins of the country are unknown, what is known is that Princess Peach is the crown leader of the Mushroom Kingdom and that King Bowser of the Koopa Troop has taken to repeatedly kidnapping her and attempting to take over the country. He is usually defeated by Mario and Luigi. The capital of the kingdom is Princess Peach’s Castle, located in Toad Town.

The Mushroom Kingdom's terrain is primarily terrestrial, though it is varied due to the different biomes it encompasses, with large pits in the ground seeming to be common. It is also neighbors or allies to other nations such as Sarasaland, Nimbus Land, the Beanbean Kingdom or the Metro Kingdom.

Role in Super Mario 64 Machinima[]

The Mushroom Kingdom is also the primary setting of most Super Mario 64 Machinima. While most series featuring it focus around Peach's Castle, other locations have been seen, such as the levels in Super Mario 64 and various other locations mostly portrayed by different games or custom levels.

Toad Town as seen in Super Mario Galaxy.

Alternate dimensional versions of the kingdom exist in some machinimas, such as the Star World and Fourth Dimension.

Trivia[]

  • The location of the Mushroom Kingdom itself is somewhat inconsistent. In early media such as books, the cartoon series The Super Mario Bros. Super Show and the 1993 Super Mario Bros. movie, the Mushroom Kingdom is portrayed as being located either deep underground or in a different dimension from Earth. Mario and Luigi were believed to have originated from Brooklyn and arrived via portal or warp pipe. Later games would imply the Mushroom Kingdom exists on a different planet or alternate version of Earth, and that Mario and Luigi grew up there. Super Mario 64 Machinimists tend to either portray the Mushroom Kingdom as being on Earth or on this separate "Mushroom World".
    • Likewise, the design of the kingdom, Toad Toad and Peach's Castle also tend to change from game to game. In Super Mario Odyssey, it is shown located on an island shaped like a Super Mushroom with little to no signs of other countries present. Other media, such as Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, show it being connected to land such as the Beanbean Kingdom.
