King Koopa observes as the gay (left) and stupid (right) armies face off.

The Mushroom Civil War was a civil war that occurred in the Mushroom Kingdom in the early 1990s.


In 1990, Ludwig von Koopa and Larry Koopa decided to undermine the Mushroom Kingdom's ability to continue fighting the Mushroom War by exploiting disagreements among its population. To that end, they painted a bunch of gay Mushroomers red and painted a group of stupid Mushroomers blue; these factions became the Homosexual Organization of Gay Friends and the Stupid Organization of Unintelligent People, respectively. Brooklyn Mario and Mama Luigi, who were filming an episode of The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, managed to convince the gay people and the stupid people to discuss peace terms just before they would have engaged in their first battle.

As it turned out, however, this was not enough to avert war. King Harkinian, who happened to be having suicidal feelings at the time due to an ongoing economic crisis in Hyrule, decided to get himself killed by going to the Mushroom Kingdom and publicly insulting Princess Toadstool in an epic rant. The King expected the Princess to have him arrested and executed, but a majority of the Mushroomers who heard his speech agreed with his points. The King had also used numerous anti-gay slurs against the Princess, however, and most members of the Homosexual Organization of Gay Friends took offense to this. Thus, conflict subsequently broke out between the two groups, who also waged separate rebellions against the Mushroom government.
