A new trailer for Super Mario Odyssey released today during the Nintendo Direct briefing showed legendary gaming character Mario without a shirt on. Even though it might not have been the first time we saw Mario without a shirt on, people had a lot to say about it.

There were a lot of Good Tweets™ on the subject, and we’re collecting some of the silliest ones we’ve seen in this post because we need to preserve this moment in gaming history. But before we get started, you should know that the @ShirtlessMario Twitter handle is already taken. Sorry about that (it wasn’t me; or was it? It wasn’t). And yep, there is already a meme template on KnowYourMeme for Shirtless Mario.

Obviously what the internet ran with was the fact that we saw Mario’s nipples. We didn’t doubt he had them, but now we’ve seen them. What we didn’t learn is if Mario has an innie or an outie belly button, or if he has one at all, because he pulls his swim trunks up so high. What’s up with that?

Whatever the case, below you can see some silly reactions to shirtless Mario. Super Mario Odyssey, which looks really good, launches on October 27 for Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo revealed a ton of other information in today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast. Be sure to also check out our roundup of all the news from the presentation.
