The Most Dangerous Game Master Review

I've procrastinated long enough, time to tackle one of the best episodes.

Dr. Wily is shown creating something to challenge Captain N, but needs to get his memories before he can finish. Mother Brain decides to send Hippo and Eggplant for this. Over at the Palace, the N Team is watching TV.

Wishful Thinking Review

Well, The last two episodes were absolute trash, but things are about to get better.

There's an opening shot of the palace, with Shakedown playing again, but it sounds different, it's slower, and seems to have new instrumentation to fit the scene. Initially, it sounds like there's an invasion, but it turns out the N Team is just playing basketball. While the scoreboard indicates that the two teams are led by Simon and Kevin, and it's the adapted characters vs the original characters, it really looks like it's everyone against Kid Icarus. Kevin's team ends up winning, and Kid starts to feel insecure about his size. The rest of the N Team wonders what to do about it, and Duke wanders off into an unknown room of the palace. He finds a magic la…

Simon the Ape-Man Review

I am not going to enjoy this. Simon the Ape-Man, if you haven't already read my episode ranking, is at the bottom of my list, beat out only by When Mother Brain Rules, which I don't even consider a real episode. So I'll be reviewing what I consider the worst episode, of one of the worst TV shows I have ever seen. Let's do this

So we start on Castlevania, with no title card, it needed to be added in syndication, the Count is getting ready to conquer Castlevania and summons an army of Zombies. We cut to the Palace of Power, where Kevin is showing the N Team how to ride a skateboard. Simon once again tries to upstage him, and builds a makeshift skaetboard out of an ironing board and a few wheels. After going through a tunnel, Simon crashes and…

The Mystery of When Mother Brain Rules

I was planning on making this post after I had reviewed season 2, but I couldn't resist, I want to make something other than a review right now, and When Mother Brain Rules is really intriguing to me. I'll be going over everything I know about it, the changes that were made, and possible solutions to the question surrounding it. I'll actually be expanding on this between reviews, because there's a lot to talk about, and there's no way I can do it all in one go.

(Version 1)

-What is it anyway? When Mother Brain Rules is a clip show that aired during on Captain N and The Adventures Of Super Mario Bros 3. It's typically listed as the fourteenth episode of season 2.

-What content does it contain? Clips from both seasons, more footage from season …

Three Men and a Dragon Review

Oh boy, this one's a doozy. We've got a Dragon Warrior adaptation on our hands today, and it's a weird one. I can't really say much for the accuracy, not having played Dragon Warrior, but this is an infamous episode nonetheless.

For once, the opening scene isn't on Metroid, but rather Dragon's Den, and it's facing quite a few problems. Most of the Dragons have had their hearts darkened by Dragon Lord. (who apparently wasn't actually a Dragon in the original game, but is still seen as a rather threatening villain here) Only two good Dragons remain, an obnoxious baby named Puff and her mother. (I believe both were created for this episode) Dragon Lord uses his crystal to darken the mother's heart, leaving Puff defenseless. Mother Brain contac…

Nightmare on Mother Brain's Street Review

Hmm, let's see, what would make for a good talking point in the intro paragraph. I've got it! How bout the idiotic title of the episode? There is no Mother Brain's Street in this episode, unless it's referring to Metroid itself, Mother Brain's Street doesn't exist at all. This episode had a VHS release in (probably) the U.K, paired with How's Bayou, honestly my main takeaway from the VHS was the inclusion of the teaser for the episode. OK, time to get into the actual episode.

So it looks like Mother Brain finally realized what her mirror is referencing, and asks it who the most beautiful woman in Videoland is. It obviously says it's Lana, and Mama Brain shatter the mirror (good luck spying on the N Team now, for the biggest brain in Videola…

Mega Trouble for Megaland Review

When we last saw the N Team, Mother Brain had used the Three Sacred Treasures to send them into the Warp Zone to Oblivion. This story will pick up in this episode, Mega Trouble for Megaland is typically viewed as one of the stronger episodes of Captain N, let's see how it holds up.

We're introduced with a recap of Videolympics, which is understandable, from what I can tell, this episode was made more accessible than Videolympics, an example would be a VHS release in the UK(?), where it was oddly paired with Kevin in Videoland. After the recap, it's shown that Mother Brain has returned to Metroid, (I'd question why she didn't storm the palace right away, but in the last episode, she said that if the N Team won the games, she'd never leave Me…

Videolympics Review

I'm going to have a lot of fun with this one. This might be my most watched episode of season 1, and I'm ready to get right into it.

We start once again, on Metroid, where Mother Brain is angrier than ever, and hungry for power. She asks her Metroid Mirror (the same thing she used for spying in the previous episode) how she can get rid of the N Team and take over Videoland. She is told that the Three Sacred Treasures on Mount Icarus can be used to achieve the power she's searching for. She instructs Dr. Wily to call the N Team. At the Palace of Power, we see Kevin playing a life sized Donkey Kong simulator, if the blatant advertising wasn't obvious enough already, this is sure to tip you off. Mother Brain calls the N Team, suggesting a Vide…

How's Bayou Review

Well this episode is going to be a fun one. While this review is focusing on the version used in reruns, the original airing of this episode was noticeably incomplete, and for some reason, it was what Shout Factory used on the DVD set, and because of that, it's the most accessible version of the episode. This would be a problem, but a few weeks ago, version 2 of the episode was uploaded to Youtube using a VHS copy. The voices are strangely quieter here, I don't know if this was part if the actual rerun or something on the VHS itself, but the episode it was paired with (Nightmare on Mother Brain's Street) sounds fine. The two versions of the episode aren't too different, version one has sloppier animation, but you'll get about the same expe…

Mr. and Mrs. Mother Brain review

I'm just going to get right into things, I'l only be able to get a few things down but I had to make this sooner or later.

We start at the Palace of Power, where Mother Brain is coming to what the N Team thinks is a meeting to sign a peace treaty, Simon sucks up to Lana as expected while getting ready, and drops an inkwell on his head while juggling them. We see Mother Brain and her henchmen taking her to the palace (Dr. Wily is working for her now by the way) we learn that this is all a huge lie (the first of many) and this is another plot to take over Videoland. We then see Kid Icarus taking target practice in case this is a trick (nice to see someone with common sense around here). He accidentally hits Simon, who then tries to show him h…

Kevin in Videoland review

Seeing as my previous posts were basically made as reviews, I've decided to just start reviewing individual episodes. I'll be emulating the reviews on the Unofficial Captain N Home Page, but on a smaller scale, I'll recap the episode, then write about my thoughts.

The episode starts with a horde of Metroid enemies and generic soldiers wielding giant pizza cutters approaching the Palace of Power. We see King Hippo from Punch Out and The Eggplant Wizard from Kid Icarus watching this unfold. They're pretty strange choices for villains, I know Eggplant Wizards are challenging in Kid Icarus, but King Hippo is a weird choice. King Hippo then comments about how they're too strong for "them" I assume he's talking about the palace guards here (all z…

Comic series overview

I'm probably not going to make any friends with this post, but I want to talk about the comics anyway.

First off, I can say that this is in fact an improvement over the cartoon, but I feel like it's wasting a lot of potential. I understand that this was a part of Nintendo Comics system, and a ton of first party franchises weren't included due to having their own stories, but I'm really peeved about the comic not really using games other than Kid Icarus and Metroid. The stuff they do with these games is great, but seeing the same enemies from the worlds can get annoying. I understand why we didn't see a lot of Punch Out content here, since it had it's own stories, but there wasn't much of an excuse to use so little of Kongoland. However, tha…

My episode ranking (season 3 not included)

I thought I'd rank the episodes in seasons 1 and 2, and give my thoughts on them

Worst. When Mother Brain Rules, not much else to say, just a clip show that shouldn't even qualify as an episode, the Video Game Masters version is a little better, but not by much, I'm not even giving it a number

26. Simon The Ape Man, unfocused, not funny, and packed with filler. The brainwashing plot is pointless, and that time could have easily been devoted to elaborating on Simon thinking he's Donkey Kong Jr. (Which comes in 3/4 in by the way)

25. The Trojan Dragon, just a boring and bad episode, no one would give a crap about it if it didn't have Link and Zelda in it

24. The Lost City of Kongoland, really uncomfortable to watch, this is probably the episode …

Captain N fans unite!

Hey Captain N Fans! I have been looking at various sites dedicated to the Captain N Fandom, sites like Captain N.net and The Ultimate Warp Zone and am wondering where that fandom is right now, is there an active community that talks about Captain N or has it been restrained to this Fandom Wiki? I'd like to hear literally anything from anyone. Thanks!

Buddy Boy

I JUST now learned of this! Apparently, Captain N was originally pitched as a Paperboy cartoon called "Buddy Boy". Someone add this to the wiki, quick!
