Top 10 Most Annoying Things About Super Mario Maker

Mario Maker is great. But every game has its flaws.

The Top Ten

1 Limit for placeable objects

So many of my creations have been ruined by the ground tile limit. Also, only four sets of doors?! Really?! And don't get me started on only 2 checkpoints. The only one that makes sense is the enemy limit. - TheYoshiOverlord

Yeah I need one more block to complete my damn level and it said I ran out

2 Only playable character is Mario

Nintendo, why didn't you put in Luigi? Or the two Toads. They can each have their abilities from 3D World, with Yellow Toad replacing Peach. You can get them by shaking Mario. - TheYoshiOverlord

I wish I could play as Luigi too and not just Mario! :/ They should have Super Luigi Maker or Super Wario Maker too!

You have mystery mushrooms but yeah we need the real thing

Luigi is a MAIN character that was playable in EVERY STYLE.

3 Lack of level themes

Desert, Snow, Beach, Jungle, Mountain, Athletic, Pipe Maze, Outdoor Ghost House, Volcano, Lava... need I say more? - TheYoshiOverlord

Desert is such a great theme not just in gaming, but in general!

4 Lack of major enemies in the Mario games

Boomerang Bros, Fire Bros, Spike, Fire Snake, and SO! MUCH! MORE! - TheYoshiOverlord

5 Lack of a "dislike" option

I agree about this one. They just don't have one so no ones feeling are hurt. - Dawscr

I know right there are so many crap levels on 100 Mario challenge!

Most levels suck and I want to dislike them

I'm just hungry but this one is bad

6 No slopes

Slopes have been a key part of Mario since Mario 3! Why didn't Nintendo add them? - TheYoshiOverlord

7 The "report" button for levels doesn't really do anything

You know that Japanese girl with the yellow shirt and big, black glasses that is ranked number 1 or 2? She copies other people's levels and gets stars off of them. I've reported the plagarized levels, but Nintendo doesn't give a s***. - TheYoshiOverlord

8 No vertical levels

I don't remember his name, but there' someone I'm following who sorta figured out how to make a vertical level. Create multiple rooms where you start at the bottom and go to the top, where you find a door or pipe. Whatever it is, enter it, and it leads to the bottom of the next room, and repeat until you think you've done too much. VERY SMART.

How hard could it be to implement these? Come on. - TheYoshiOverlord

9 Key limitations

There are some very dumb limitations with keys in this game. For example, you can't put key holding enemies or blocks onto tracks. How stupid is that? Also, why only 5 key coins per area? This update had so much potential to be great, but of course Nintendo had to screw it up. - TheYoshiOverlord

So true I hate how enemies with keys on tracks don't work!

10 No placeable water or lava

I wanted to make a water/lava castle and a upside down lava level but I can't because why no playable water or lava and not even quicksand.

The Newcomers

? 3DS version Course Viewing and Others

Nintendo, why didn't you just port all the features from the Wii U onto the 3DS? It's easy enough just to add a few extra features...
Like what happened to the 10 Mario challenge and Course ID and Maker searches?
Get up to speed, Nintendo. Get on our level.

? 3DS version Course Uploading

There is no way to post courses from the 3DS version of SMM unless you know how to hack and have a Wii U to dump the courses onto.

The Contenders

11 People create too many highly difficult levels

This list is supposed to be about things that was Nintendo'S fault, not the player's fault. Get this off the list. - TheYoshiOverlord

Well, Nintendo made this game, and that's how Panga made his levels. So, no offense AT ALL, but it was technically Nintendo's fault we got the hard levels.

...OK, maybe "fault" was the wrong word.

12 Nintendo implemented stupid costumes no one will use

As if I'm going to make a Super Mahjong Tile Bros. level. Or Super Wii Balance Board Bros. Come on, give us something we'll use. Also, remove some of the Animal Crossing costumes, in my opinion, we only need Villager. - TheYoshiOverlord

How is this annoying? Pointless, but it doesn't have any real effect, does it? - NewSuperPaperMario

We now have two stupid anime costumes. Nintendo obviously doesn't care who gets in the game or not.

13 Costumes can only be used for the Super Mario Bros 1 mode. V 2 Comments
14 Not many blocks

What happened to meltable ice? Or throwable ice? Point of Advice blocks from SMW? Try harder Nintendo, there's a reason why everyone still prefers SMBX and Mario Builder.

15 Nintendo randomly deletes levels with no explanation

I get it if they delete a level that isn't popular, but some people have had their levels deleted within an hour or two after it's uploaded! A good example is the Reddit user BakeToRise. His daughter recently made a level, spending hours working on it, and uploaded it with the name "Maria Cake Yoshi." Their first player gave the level a star. When they went to check it, they found their level deleted about an hour after it was uploaded. I'm not sure if Nintendo is being an ass or if it's some nasty bug in the system. I'm hoping for the latter. - TheYoshiOverlord

I spent over a week to make a level And took me A month to upload it but then they delete it.

16 Having to play the NWC levels to unlock skinny Mario

Those levels are so terrible and hard and tedious! Why Nintendo why?!

It is not worth it don't try it is a waste of time

It is not worth it don't try it is a waste of time

They are so easy if you can't win you suck

17 White Bone Rafts fall after a certain amount of time, regardless if it's on tracks or not.

Wanting some sort of slow rollercoaster? Too bad. In fact, now I want to do it. No offense to Nintendo, just saying. I'm fine with it not on tracks. But who came up with the falling bone raft on tracks?! Again, no offense.

To answer your question: Yes, they actually did. I'm just saying; it's kind of annoying the way Nintendo recreated the bone raft falling.

Correct Me If I'm Wrong, But Didn't They Fall In The Game They Originated From?

18 No actual way to force players to fight an enemy

Forget this entry, now we can do it, thanks to the addition of keys! Took Nintendo long enough. - TheYoshiOverlord

We now have keys inserted in enemies so you can! Thank you Nintendo! You're the best! - Mariomaster63

19 Not many game themes

New Super Mario Bros. Wii would be cool, then we can move the Propeller there and give NSMBU the acorn. I also want USA Super Mario Bros. 2, and All-Stars themes for SMB and SMB3. - TheYoshiOverlord

Um...that would be too many themes. But yes, this game could seriously use more themes.

20 Being able to carry switches

@TheYoshiOverlord True, but it would be nice if it was a feature that you could turn on/off. It would just make certain levels more challenging if you couldn't pick them up, but you could still have an option to be able to carry them when making a puzzle level.

To whoever submitted this: I don't find this annoying. Everyone uses this in their puzzle levels. Besides, occasionally I can cheese the level by carrying a switch and using Kaizo tactics :P - TheYoshiOverlord
