You're probably gonna hate me for this...

Both the clouds and bushes are the same, just different colors. Sorry, but you will never view this game the same way again...

Its 8-bit. Don't think about it so hard.

Oh my God! I've never even noticed this! GREEN CLOUD BUSHES, MIYAMOTO? OH THIS IS UNFORGIVABLE!!!

Nah, you're too late; I hate the guy who showed me this before you did.

Guess what else!  Mario and Luigi in this game are the same exact model just different colors!!!!!!!!! WORLD BROKEN!!!!

Actually, I don't hate you. You've just brought clever and economical design to my attention.

Hmm... I actually never noticed this before. Still, I don't really see anything wrong with it, it just so happens that the cloud sprite works well as a bush too.

Yep, just found out. Tried playing the game, but every time I tried to time a jump my mind would focus on the bush I just passed and I'd end up dying... This game will never be the same. My childhood has just been ruined...

@Fr0Br0: Play the Super Mario All-Stars version then.

Now I can't unsee it.
But seriously, I already knew about this for awhile now.

@Fr0Br0:  Yes and all the blocks are the same and question mark blocks 2, the the size of the rom has every thing to do with it and it being a 8 bit code.

Did you know that Ms. Pac man is the same as Pac man, but with a bow in her head?
Crazy, huh.

About... well I can't pull the date off the top of my head. But pretty old.

And Mario looks exactly like Luigi, only painted green.  When I realized that, I was so let down.
#20 Posted by Baillie (4595 posts) -

The question remains, if the block wasn't there, would the cloud bush actually have the full shape? If not, then its a fake.

Well the game was released 24 years ago so I guess that makes us both late.

And all the turtles look the same, and so do the mushrooms. And all the blocks are the same, and all the pipes are the same except different sizes, and all the- 
You know what, just, whatever.

And his mustache only serves the purpose of separating his nose, and to give his face structure.

Yup, I was already aware of this. Also the Peach sprite is just a recoloured Bowser sprite, but you have to look real close.

Being a long time poster at /v/, I already knew this.
