A Tumblr user by the name of SupperMarioBroth has discovered a surprising new way to kill the seemingly-invincible Big Boos in Super Mario World. Apparently, if Mario slides down a flight of stairs and collides with a Big Boo, he can kill it easily. Although this seems like an incredibly simple solution, it's come as a major surprise to thousands of people who, until now, believed that Big Boos were more or less immortal.

The enemies, who creepily follow Mario whenever his back is turned, are known for being some of the deadliest and most annoying creatures in Mario games, so most players simply avoid confronting them to survive. This new bit of information could be game-changing for most Super Mario World fans.

What do you guys think? Did you know about this way to kill Big Boos? Do you still play Super Mario World, and are you going to try this out yourself? Let us know in the comments below!
