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

Should be more place-able stuff!

2 Lack of level themes

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

We need: Desert, Snow, Beach, Jungle, Mountain, Sky, Haunted Forest and Volcano

Even Mario run, which has only 24 levels, has desert levels!

We need snow - YOSHIA2121

3 Lack of major enemies in the Mario games

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

To be honest,theirs not that much enemies - Nateawesomeness

The koopalings - YOSHIA2121

We still need: Pokey, Boomerang Bros., Koopalings, Boom Boom, Spike, whomps, shy guy, penguin, pom pom, fire snake, angry sun, fire chomp, ball n' chain, banzai bill, beach koopa, big steely, blargg, blurp, bony beetle, boo buddy swarm, chainsaw, chargin' chuck, climbing koopas, column, dino rhino, reznor, volcano lotus, etc. Seriously nintendo, please make it happen. - GamingGoku757

4 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

5 Lack of a "dislike" option

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

Most levels suck and I want to dislike them

This would get enemy spam levels out of 100 Mario challenge, I bet. - purpleyoshi98

I would love a dislike option - YOSHIA2121

6 No slopes

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

We need slopes - YOSHIA2121

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

These would be cool - YOSHIA2121

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!

More red coins per area would be nice - YOSHIA2121

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.

We need this - YOSHIA2121

The Contenders

11 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.

Now there is an explanation - YOSHIA2121

This should be #1, I HAVE 5,000+ SUBSCRIBERS, SO THEY SHOULDN'T BE REMOVED. - BlueSheepYT

12 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

We need some challenges - YOSHIA2121

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.

13 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.

true - YOSHIA2121

14 Costumes can only be used for the Super Mario Bros 1 mode.

This should be number one

true - YOSHIA2121

Imagine the amiibos in New Super Mario Bros Wii U!

15 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.

I beleave they need more

true - YOSHIA2121

16 Not many blocks

what - YOSHIA2121

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.

17 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

We need challenges plus they aren't hard - YOSHIA2121

18 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?

Yeah if they are on tracks they shouldn't fall - YOSHIA2121

19 Most levels are just meant to troll you
20 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

With keys, now we can

use keys - YOSHIA2121
