Luma is an infinitely superior rep for Mario Galaxy than Rosalina.

In SPP's final stage, Mario and his brother are revealed to have been captured by Bowser. I point it out to show that Mario is not as infallible as everybody wants to think.


Except Rosalina has never shown any actual battle skills in all of her existence, unlike Mario and Luigi.

You also forgot the fact that Galaxy 1 got retconned and all the events that occurred there happened in Galaxy 2, only with Lubba instead. And you forgot that Mario knows where Bowser is by pure instinct from years of experience Also forgot the fact that it's Luma who actively helps out Mario in the actual levels and gameplay, not Rosalina.


We've already gone over how SMG2 doesn't imply that SMG1 didn't happen at all.

And Mario doesn't have this magical Bowser radar in him, otherwise he'd know where he was in TTYD and probably head there first after learning that Peach was kidnapped. What could have kept Mario from thinking Bowser hired the X-Nauts?

Compromise: Rosalina gets into the game, but her entire moveset revolves around using Luma. Yay? Nay?

No. Then Spacely wins even more than if we just got Luma.

Because Peach, Daisy, and Pauline have been sooooooo helpful in the mainstream "go get Bowser/Tetanga/DK" titles...

Doesn't mean that the actual game happened. The same plot occurs in Galaxy 2, only with NSMB more involved and Bowser being much bigger.

And they have been doing this since they literally were babies. You think Mario wouldn't always assume that Bowser was behind it?

Also no to the Rosalina using Luma thing, because that would proof that the spot is literally wasted on the account of Luma not being his own thing while proofing that Rosalina does jack squat.

Let's not forget who introduced Mario to the Luma, saved Mario from suffocating in outer space, led you to Bowser (who Mario would have NEVER found if it wasn't for her, as he wouldn't have the slightest hint), built the hub world of SMG1, had the Lumas rebuild the Toad Brigade's ship (which helped a lot more than you think), AND does that awesome deflect thing when you shoot a Star Bit at her.

And yet got kidnapped like any other princess in the sequel.

What?

In SMG2's final stage, she and her comet are revealed to have been captured by Bowser. I point it out to show that Rosie is not as infallible as everybody wants to think.


Cool. She's also been shown to have goddess-like abilities, including being able to see people that are thousands of miles through space away and turn giant at will. You don't think maybe she let herself get captured because she knew ahead of time that Mario would kick Bowser's can regardless, so putting up a big fight and messing with fate as well as risking her Luma's safety was pointless? She saw that it was Mario's fight to rescue his loved one, not hers.

Besides the fact that Rosalina raised the Lumas herself, so without her they'd have no guidance whatsoever. And Galaxy 1 wasn't retconned. It happened, then the universe restarted and 2 happened, and only certain key characters remember it. That isn't a retcon.

Thank you Spunky.

Heck, didn't Miyamoto say there was no canon in Mario?
