Super Mario Bros. 3 has satanic messages?

In class today, a friend of mine shared with me something really odd, something that I didn't notice until today. He showed me signs that could be satanic messages in Super Mario Bros. 3. Although I myself don't believe that there are, (having played the game my entire life), I would like to share with you all these signs.

First is the white block:



If you play the game, look at the clock when you press the "down" button on the D Pad. You will notice that 6 game seconds, not real-world seconds, but "game seconds" pass before you drop below the white block.

Next is the power meter:



Note that there are six arrows in the power meter.

Next is the first castle in World 3:



Door #6 is the door you go through to get to the boss of that castle.

These three signs are believed to represent "666".

Bowser's children, the Koopalings:



Notice that there are 7 of them there. They are believed to represent the 7 deadly sins.

And finally, although I couldn't find a photo, the Mushroom Kingdom map of Super Mario 3 is believed to be in the shape of a pentagram.

Any thoughts?

Re: Super Mario Bros. 3 has satanic messages?

Why would Nintendo put satanic messages into their games? I wager this is mere coincidence.

I agree with you there. There is no way that Nintento would purposley do this.

You can look at your own hand and find satanic messages if you look hard enough.

Re: Super Mario Bros. 3 has satanic messages?

Haha. I wouldn't read to much into it. Though its not impossible that the designers put these things in purposely for the sake of symbolism.

Timelord Link, your friend is a real idiot if he really thinks that a Super Mario game is secretly sending satanic messages to its audiences. Your friend is overanalyzing.

Re: Super Mario Bros. 3 has satanic messages?

How is the presence of three sixes and seven of something a satanic message? That's like saying the game has a Christian message if you say it had 12 of something, since Jesus had 12 disciples. Sorry, but that very weak association to satanism is nothing more than a coincidence. I'm sure if you look at any game you'll find three sixes and the number seven somewhere.

Also, I don't see much of the seven deadly sins in those Koopalings. Sure, there are seven of them, but do they represent lust, gluttony, sloth, avarice, wrath, envy and pride?

I have a mole shaped like Satan's balls.

No offence, but this is balony. Props for finding it though.

He doesn't think that the game symbolizes Satan. He just made an observation to me like I did to the ZU community.

How bout I just give yall a link to the video of where I found all this. And to answer your last question, the person narrating in the video thinks so.

YouTube - 666 - Super Mario Bros 3 - AVGN

Just a warning: the video contains strong language and brief sexual references. Viewer discretion is advised.

Re: Super Mario Bros. 3 has satanic messages?

Oh boy... This reminds me of when Pokemon was accused of having satanic messages...



I love how they show Jigglypuff as an example. xD
