Mario Kart 8 for Wii U has produced one of the most pervasive memes in recent video-game-related-meme history with Luigi’s Death Stare. This week at Anime Expo 2014, Luigi brought the pain.
Rolling through the convention full of cosplaying Anime fans, Luigi made with the turtle-shelling. There’s nothing as embarrassing as having a stuffed turtle shell tossed at your face when you’re posing as your favorite fictional character at a convention. Nothing.
Luigi is played by D Piddy, an infamous cosplayer also responsible for lots of Deadpool antics. Below you’ll see the very first appearance of Luigi’s “Death Stare” as uploaded to the web by Rizupicor Gaming.
Next you’ll see a compilation of Luigi Death Stares from throughout the game. They see me rolling. They hating.
Let us know if you’ve discovered any other real-life appearances of Luigi going all-in with the Death Stare and his go-kart out in the wild. We want to track this oddity through the future – rolling hard.
