They're the only 2 female enemies. Literally every other enemy, in the official games, are male.

Okay, there are 3 female enemies. That doesn't change my point.

I was going to post that, but it has stuff like "Ms. Pac-Man and Paper Peach".

This is why we need feminism.

Vote me for administrator and I will vow to fix the problem of gender inequality in Mario.

We need equal representation of all genders on this forum. Staff sausage fest needs to stop!

I said official games, which means there are only about 6 female characters/enemies that are female.

I mean that's not really safe to say. Some of those koopas might be female. You just can't tell the difference.

You really believe this is a problem, don't you? :lol:

I mean, I do appreciate when I can play as a woman. But it's such a minor thing, it's not going to influence whether or not I enjoy the game one bit. And I couldn't care less what the gender of the enemies (which I'm usually brutally murdering) is.

Should we replace the staff with sea slugs? They have both male and female genitalia ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).

I mean, the sea slugs would still do a better job than the current admins. And they're male nor female. I support this notion.

The thing I specifically love about the Paper Mario Series is how versatile they are with having female characters be an extreme threat to Mario. Like the Shadow Queen and so on. It's so upsetting that in the mainstream games you can never bash heads with many female enemies.

Yeah, I'd love to defeat more females in games just in general. I've killed thousands of virtual men, but there were 0 women that got in the crossfire unfortunately. We need equal representation of women in death tbh.

This page mentions Clawdia as an actual female character (not that she isn't, but y'know).
