In the weird and wonderful depths of internet fanart, the most fevered creative minds of our generation work overtime to give us twisted visions of the classic video game characters that sparked our childhood imaginations. Here are some of our favorite interpretations of the world of Super Mario Bros.
Our beefed-up Mario lounges with a sexy, tattooed bard-girl Princess Peach. Sure he looks tough, but clearly he skips leg day at the gym.
I'm not sure whether this is supposed to be some light-hearted fun between friends, or something more fetish-y. Beefcake Yoshi, however, definitely does not skip leg day.
Mario 4 Dead
Not kidding, I would play the heck out of this. Poor Luigi!
Here's Bowser illin' like a real villain. Straight outta tha Mushroom Kingdom.
Well, she does get kidnapped an awful lot
Oooh, snap! That's going to take some explaining.
Sick Ink, Princess

They've spent over 2 decades as platforming rivals, don't tell me Mario wouldn't shed a tear.
I, uh, um...
Man, I don't know. Pick your favorite. The faces? The gore? The boomerang? The crotch?
More like Dr. Feelgood.
You can't unsee
And in this portrait, I think it's quite apparent that Mario has seen some horrors, man.
In the game, they look kind of cute
Yep. DEFINITELY a bad mushroom.
