- Original Plot Summary (Contains Spoilers for first half of episode!)
- Note: this summary only explains about the first half of the story, so that the rest of the episode isn't spoiled.
One spring day, the Mario Bros. received a letter from Princess Peach. It said, "Please come to the castle for an urgent meeting." After reaching the castle, the Bros. learn from the princess that a strange meteor crashed down a few hours ago, and seemed to be emanating a strange energy. Princess Peach then requested that the Mario Bros. head out in search of the meteor and bring it back to the castle for research. As they are about to leave, however, a sudden wave of freezing air swept through the castle and across the rest of the kingdom, coating the ground, plants, and nearly everything else with snow or ice. Then they heard a cackle split the air, and saw the Crystal King fly up to the meeting room window on an airship. "Mwahahahaha!" he said. "The power of the meteor will be MINE!" Quickly, the Mario Bros. ran outside and began to chase after the Crystal King. After making their way to his frozen lair, the Bros. are able to defeat him. After doing so, the Crystal King tells them that Bowser was using him as a distraction, and that while they were fighting him, Bowser is already well on his way towards the meteor. After travelling through the forest, the Bros. reach the meteor's crater. They find that Bowser is already there, waiting for them. As Bowser gloats about getting the meteor, a loud cracking noise emanates from the crater. They see a strange dark orb of energy appear out of the meteor, and begin to lazily float around. Suddenly, when the orb nears Bowser, it suddenly flashes brightly, and morphs into a shadowy duplicate of the Koopa king, and looks at him expectantly. Bowser roars with laughter, and, pointing at the Mario Bros, says, "Destroy them!"
