The Hardest Level In Mario Maker Has Been Completed In Time For The Wii U’s Online Shutdown

It was long thought to be humanly impossible

The online services for both the Wii U and 3DS are both shutting down, a sad and true fact for all enjoyers of those platforms. This is doubly depressing for people who enjoy Mario Maker, because it means that you will no longer be able to browse the online portfolio of levels created by players and download them.

To that end, a group of talented individuals known as Team 0% swore to finish each and every Mario Maker course – except for the impossible one. You see, a course known as ‘Trimming the Herbs‘ was thought to be impossible, as the course had been created and uploaded via funny business. A little context, from a Redditor known as animationBeAr_t:

Mario Maker will shut down its online services soon, so the mario maker community got together (Team 0%) to complete all the levels before the shutdown.

This was the last level to be completed because it was submitted with TAS (tool-assisted speedrun). Because the level requires many successful frame perfect tricks to be completed, it was assumed it would be impossible for humans to complete it in the short time before the servers shutdown

The course is a nightmare of sawblades, juggling and just downright filthy movement – and the creator of the course admitted to using a ‘TAS’ tool (Tool Assisted Speedrun software) to have a robot complete the course and have it viable to upload. This meant that the greater Mario Maker community accepted it wasn’t humanly possible, and casually omitted it from the ‘Finish every single Mario Maker course ever’ objective.

Only someone did not agree with that sentiment. A player named anyx91smm2 summoned a potent amount of focus to actually complete the course:

In the video above, you see the brief but explosive set of motions that resulted in the titan being felled – all in the blink of an eye. The run is completed in such a rapid motion that you’d almost think it was far easier than expected – but a quick glance at the Twitch VoDs of Sany show the immense amount of trial and error that went into creating this godlike run.

With Trimming the Herbs completed, it now means that every single Mario Maker course has been completed by an actual human – as good of a send off as any for the game as its online services head off to the great beyond. Mad props to the MM community and Team 0% for conquering that immense landscape.

And with that, you can now rest Mario Maker online services. Not that we want you to.

Are you bummed that Mario Maker will no longer have its online library of courses? Are you impressed to see the fabled ‘TTH’ course vanquished? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
