It is a bright and sunny morning, and noon is approaching. It's partly cloudy and bright, except around the tropical paradise of Isle Delfino, where it is somewhat gloomy. In the sky, the private jet of Princess Peach is soaring towards the island. Onboard are Peach, Mario, Luigi, Toadsworth, and five Mushroomers. The TV on the front wall turns on and a Shine appears onscreen, followed by a commercial. The commercial depicts all of the wonders and features of Isle Delfino. Everyone is excited about it and can't wait to land, until Peach notices a silhouette of Mario running around in the background.
Peach: That shadow! Toadsworth, did you see-
Peach turns her head to Toadsworth and sees him dreaming.
Peach: Oh well. It can't be Mario or even Luigi, they've been in the Mushroom Kingdom for a long time up until earlier today!
The plane descends down to an airstrip just offshore of the main island. As it nears the runway, the Mushroomers, who are flying the plane, notice paint in the middle of the runway.
Red: Watch out!
Purple: Blue, be careful!
The landing gear comes in contact with the runway. Blue pulls down on the brake lever.
Blue: I can't pull the brake alone, help me!
The rest of the Mushroomers grab on and pull. They stop the plane in front of the paint. Everyone gets out and looks at the paint.
Green: What's that icky paint-like goop?
Toadsworth: Now now boys, don't get too close!
Peach: Mario, Luigi, get help and be careful!
Mario: Where'd all this paint come from?
Luigi: Yeah, and why is it still here?
Mario and Luigi walk down the runway and see some of the local resident Piantas.
Pianta 1: Which one of you did this?
Luigi: What are you talking about?
Pianta 2: The paint, stupid! You left it here and all over the island!
Mario: We just arrived! Didn't you see the plane that just landed? Come on, Luigi, let's find people who aren't so angry.
They then notice two identical water packs with straps, nozzles, and handles lying on the ground.
Luigi: Hey, Mario! What're those?
They walk up to the packs and each approach one. The nozzle from one pack begins to scan Mario and the other pack scans Luigi.
FLUDD: Greetings, I am FLUDD, a Flash Liquidizing Ultra Dousing Device! User scanned as Mario, resident of the Mushroom Kingdom!
FLUDD2: Greetings, I am FLUDD2, a Flash Liquidizing Ultra Dousing Device! User scanned as Luigi, resident of the Mushroom Kingdom!
Mario what are we supposed to do with these FLUDD things?
FLUDD: Mario, put me on your back. Luigi, put FLUDD2 on your back and we will go on!
The Bros. each put a FLUDD on their backs.
Luigi: Hey, FLUDD2, are you any different from FLUDD, uh, 1?
FLUDD2: FLUDD and I are the same model. We are exactly the same in every respect. I am referred to as FLUDD2 merely so that people can refer to us as separate units. We were created and built by Gadd Science incorporated!
FLUDD: We each have two nozzles, Squirt and Hover. With the Squirt Nozzle you can shoot water. With Hover you can obviously hover. To refill our tanks, submerge us in water.
Mario: Well, let's clean up the paint already!
The Bros. walk back to the paint.
Toadsworth: What are those things on your backs?
Mario: These are FLUDDs! They spray water and stuff!
Yellow: Can I have a turn?
Luigi: I dunno. You look smaller than the FLUDDs themselves!
Purple: Oh well.
The Bros. use the FLUDDs to spray away the paint. As they do so, a large Piranha Plant formed out of paint emerges from it.
Luigi: Mario, the water isn't hurting him!
Piranha Plant: ROAR! Water, I hate water!
Mario: It's doing something, I think.
Mario sprays some water into the Piranha Plant's mouth.
Luigi: Yeah, you found his weak point!
Luigi sprays water into the Piranha Plant's mouth, which makes it even more angry.
Piranha Plant: Hey, if I keep my mouth closed, they can't-
Mario sprays more water into the Piranha Plant's mouth.
Piranha Plant: To late!
The Piranha Plant and the paint dissolve away. A shining sun-shaped medal appears. Mario grabs it and does the Shine dance.
Luigi: Now we can go tell those residents that we cleaned up the mess we didn't even make!
Peach: But you didn't make a mess!
Mario: Tell that to those Piantas over there!
Peach: You mean those cops?
Luigi: Yeah, those two, COPS?
Cop 1: Halt, both of you two, with the caps!
Mario: *gulp* This can't be good!
Cop 2: Come with us!
The next thing they know, Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toadsworth, and the Mushroomers are in the Isle Delfino courthouse with a gathering of Piantas. Mario and Luigi are on trial.
Lawyer: Your honor, these two are clearly the ones capable of covering our beautiful Isle Delfino in graffiti. Their faces match these police sketches, which were well described by several local witnesses!
The lawyer passes out a sketch of what appears to be a Mario Brother, but it's mostly grey so they can't make out which one it is.
Lawyer: And as a result of the graffiti, our source of power, the Shine Sprites, which dwell around the Shine Gate, have fled, leaving our island in a somewhat gloomy state! It is without a doubt the Mario Bros., who have vandalized the island!
Judge: Overruled! Mario, Luigi! I hearby sentence you both to clean up the island! And you will not leave until everything's the way it should be!
Mario: But, why both of us? You said you only saw one suspect!
Lawyer: There could have been two! And since neither of you will confess, you're both guilty!
Mario and Luigi, with their FLUDDs, are now in the jail of Delfino Plaza. They've finish telling them that they must clean up the paint and recover the Shine Sprites.
FLUDD: That did not go as planned.
FLUDD2: The clean-up will begin tomorrow.
A Note from Lemmy: Super Mario BROTHERS Sunshine works in a similar fashion to Super Mario BROTHERS 64. At one time, this story was left largely empty, and readers were asked to fill in the tale themselves, following a few basic guidelines. All of the episodes have been filled in, so now you're free to read the entire tale. You will find that different episodes have been written by different people, so there are a lot of different styles here. Don't give up after reading one or two episodes. Just like you would want to complete the game, so to should you give this whole epic a shot. Enjoy.
