"The Bet" is the third episode of Super Mario Land 2.


In this episode Jon and Arin talk about the way power-ups work in Mario. Arin states that there are two kinds of Mario games; those where a power-up will upgrade you from Small Mario immediately to that power level (picking up a fire flower as Small Mario and transforming into Fire Flower Mario), and those where it will only upgrade you to Super Mario. Jon asserts that there are no Mario games that do the latter, and when Arin narrows it down to either Super Mario Bros. 3 or Super Mario World, Jon doubles down and they make a $20.00 bet on who is right.

Trivia Edit

  • While the Grumps maintain that Arin won the bet (since Mario 3 features the upgrade oddity Jon had debated against), some fans insist Jon is the actual winner, due to the "official" wording of the bet being changed by Jon from "Mario 3 or Mario World" to "Mario 3 and Mario World", and the fact that the powerup mechanics were changed between those games. Considering Jon has never debated this point, it lends credibility to the notion that it was merely a slip of the tongue on Jon's part and shouldn't affect the "spirit" of the bet.
