Season Five Title Screen 01

Title card from the official trailer

The Great War is the fifth and final season of Stupid Mario Brothers.

The synopsis revolves around the war between the Mushroom Force, the Legion of Villains, and the Bay of Darkness, with both Mario and his friends along with the Bay of Darkness, trying to defeat Ganon and his henchmen, whom are villains whom have previously appeared or even died (such as Nox Decious and Blaire Vherestorm). The season began on February 12, 2012, with the airing of "Dark Dookie" and ended with 15 episodes on June 5, 2012, with the airing of "The Super Mario Brothers."


Season Five was announced at the end of Season Four / Episode 60. Due to The Clicking Noise (done by Rich Alvarez during the summer of 2011), Season Five was delayed to 2012.

In December 2011, it was confirmed that Season Five would be the final season due to difficulty with the continuity. Alvarez states that they will make non-canon sketches afterward and are working to make Season Five the best season ever. Like Season Four, it wasn't released in January because of complications with the script.

  • Like Season Three, one of the final episodes was delayed due to either editing problems or additional scenes. "The Super Mario Brothers" was delayed 3 weeks like "Bloody Confrontations," only this time was editing reasons and due to shooting extra scenes.
  • Just like Season Four, there is no intro or opening with an exception of a standard title card for the premier and finale (Episodes 61 and 75)
  • This is the final season of the main show, due to the lack of important actors being available..
  • The main antagonists of Season Five are Ganon, Bowser, and Nox Decious, who make up all three main antagonists of the story, with Ganon being the leading villain.
  • Kent Melville portays Link as a brief cameo in Episode 75 for the final time which saved RMA from a critical cop-out of Mario being able to pull out the Master Sword because it is established in The Legend of Zelda franchise that only Link or the person entitled under The Hero Of Time choosen by the Goddesses of Hyrule can pull out the Master Sword, as seen when Link's descendants have to save Hyrule that takes place hundreds of years into the future.
  • According to Kevin Chamberlain in his Chamberlain Court #5 video , he has little bit of knowledge of characters who didn't make it in the Season. Captain Falcon was one of them to be played by an actor name Alex, but it was cancelled for unknown reasons. John Marston from Red Dead Redemption was another possible character and Alvarez said he would play the role, but the character was not included. Another possible character was Bill Rizer from the Contra series, which was an idea by Chamberlain himself, but Alvarez hadn't considered it.
  • Chamberlain offered to help Alvarez with Season Five to make it the best ever, but all of his requests were denied without a second glance. Chamberlain then threatened to leave the show and take Yoshi out altogether. Muller managed to keep Chamberlain in for staying, but he was still annoyed that his ideas being rejected. One of his ideas was where an army would attack the heroes and take over the house to have an advantage over the heroes. Following the end of the season, Chamberlain left RMA Productions because he felt he had nothing to gain from continuing to work with them.
  • The majority of the villains are recycled villains from previous installments, due to Ganondorf's power to resurrect Blaire, Pauline, and Nox Decious.
  • This Season has more filler than previous installments that is considered a waste of screen time according to critics. Richie has said that this was because even though he wanted to write a ten-episode season, fans expected/wanted fifteen.
  • This was the most critical Season of the series that it caused Richard to explain the plotholes in a seperate video and to record the extra scene with Wario and Waluigi talking about Snake's fight against Blaire, to insult critical fans who got annoyed by the narcolepsy running gag, and information on the Darkness' change due to being the dark half of Mario.
  • Many consider Episode 75 to be a short Act III to bring the series to a close.
