The Super Mario Brothers minus world warp glitch was the first game secret I was ever taught. I say taught because game secrets were passed down from person to person back then as the Internet and even Nintendo Power wasn't a thing. When I heard about it I was really impressed that such a thing was even possible in a video game and my young mind was completely blown when a friend showed it to me. Later on I learned another Mario glitch where you could shoot fireballs while small that I loved even more than the minus world glitch. The video linked above talks about the minus world glitch and gives an in depth explanation as to how it works.

If you want to know how to shoot fire while you are small check out the YouTube video below.

If anyone else knows of any original Super Mario Brothers secrets drop them in the comments.

Do you remember the chocolate factory rumor? People were convinced there was a secret chocolate factory you could find. Jeff Rovin wrote a book called How To Win At Nintendo Games that mentioned the rumor offhandedly and then it got passed around.

I'd never heard that one. Interesting how these things get started.
