MOONMOON is one of Twitch‘s most popular and beloved streamers, but even he can fall victim to trolls – as seen during a playthrough of Super Mario Maker 2.

When people think of Nintendo games, they’d usually think of child-friendly titles like Mario and they’d be correct with that assessment, but that doesn’t mean the fans can’t be toxic at times.

Twitch chat is well-known for its ability to troll people, and we saw it happen to MOONMOON with Super Mario Maker of all things. The trolls don’t just go into hiding just because you’re playing a kids game.

Super Mario Maker 2 is out now.

Trolls can be crafty

One of the main selling points of Mario Maker is the ability to play user-created levels, and as MOON was typing in a code for one, he quickly discovered he was being trolled.

It started off harmless with him typing in “15U” but quickly ended up with “15U CKD 1CK” or “I suck d*ck.” It’s certainly one of the older tricks on Twitch, but that doesn’t mean it’s not effective.

Once Moon realized his error, he laughed it off and moved on – not like there was any other choice for him. For what it’s worth, fans can create some amazing Mario Maker levels when they do give a real map code.

Super Mario Maker 2, releasing June 28 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch, is still very new so it might take a little bit before some of the exceptional levels show their face, but rest assured – they are coming.

If he does stick around with this game in the future, he’ll definitely need to be more aware of what the trolls out there are capable of.

It’s no secret that tech billionaire Elon Musk plays video games, but on October 13, he shocked the internet when he revealed his Overwatch main and how he would buff the hero.

After making a rather random tweet about the “The Illuminaughty” – a clever play on words, YouTuber twomad asked the 49-year-old if he mains Torbjorn in Overwatch.

Regardless of how the weird topic got started, Elon replied saying “um… yes” confirming he does in fact play Blizzard’s hero-based FPS and mains the Swedish engineer.

The unlikely response earned Musk a whopping 26,000 likes. For much of Overwatch’s lifespan, Torb was considered a bit of a joke or throw pick who offered very little benefit on attack.

However, after a major rework, the DPS has grown increasingly stronger and is actually one of the most viable heroes in the game at all levels right now.

Sadly, Musk didn’t state how long he had been playing Overwatch or Torbjorn for that matter, so it’s possible that he had only played when the hero wasn’t as good or only after the big rework happened.

Even the official Overwatch Twitter account decided to get in on the fun and replied to Musk with a picture of a giant Torbjorn turret on Mars.

“We’ve been thinking about this for a while,” they captioned the humorous picture. “Call us.”

Furthermore, Musk went on to explain how he would buff Torbjorn and the ideas were interesting to say the least. “Please buff Torb’s turret!” he exclaimed. “Or maybe 2 weak turrets to allow more strategic degrees of freedom.”

It was certainly an interesting reply and a sign that we could be looking at one of the most ambitious crossovers in history if Overwatch takes Elon up on his idea.

Though it’s unlikely that we’ll see Musk’s ideas make it to the game, but there’s always the Experimental Mode, so it’s possible Elon could end up getting his wish.

Who knows – maybe next time you’re in a game and a player won’t swap off Torb, it may be Elon Musk of all people.
