@salty joe, I think it means up or down
Like all stairs they go up and down.
I am starting to lose my sh1t over people not using the word “loose” correctly...
@Jesus Chrysler, lose*
Looks like up to be just based on his left foot. If it was down he would have stepped on the Vertical part and then fell to his death like a bowling ball down well... a spiral staircase.
It's a perspective trick, the stairs are actually straight.
The image itself shows the stairs going down, us looking at the stairs from the top. This is because of the way the stairs angle to the left: !/_
We have to be looking at it from the top in order to view this
@Tentastic, I'm not so sure, if that line on the wall is at the same height (and not a handrail) then the stairs are going up as they are almost touching that line on the wall further up.
Also, I don't care, so not actually arguing or anything
@Tentastic, also nobody walks down stairs like this. Their body would be horizontal
@RollingInD1ck, I definitely agree Mario's animation is off. That's why I used the explanation of the image. If these stairs were going up, then Mario would eventually be running on a wall by how they twist.
That's a turbine.
Down. Medieval staircases were designed to benefit the defender. Most people were right handed. Swinging a sword from right to left has more power and is more natural for a righty. This allows for defenders atop the staircase to powerfully strike down towards the attackers coming up the staircase. Leaving them at a disadvantage for one not having the high ground and two having to swing left to right.
Up, don’t think you see soles of shoes going down stairs
What animator could be so fukky as to make stairs that could go 4 different ways.
If hes going down, then the tower is either very high up or there is water outside. I think hes running into (up) the tower. Mario saves ppl I dont think he'd be exiting without whoever he saved
@maladjusted, unless the princess is in another castle
He's clealy going down. Use the window for context
He's looking up so he's gotta be going up. Just terrible animation.
Idk all I’m seeing is that snack on em tho 😍
Sometimes I have loose poo also cha cha cha
Literally all I see are downward spiraling stairs going towards the left.
@Not him again, nine inch nails rocks!
@Not him again, though I agree with you. He is climbing stairs. His feet and legs are wrong for going down. Back leg is straight with his foot extended and front leg is bent and foot planted. You would fall on your face trying to go down stairs like that.
@that crazy Marine, I was honestly more focused on the actual stairs rather than him with the wording.
@dj evolve fan club, wasn't even trying to make the reference, but hell yeah they do!
