Do you recognize a-me? It's Mario!

“He looks like powder,” another said, making a reference to the title character from the 1995 movie of the same name.

In one tweet, a user compared him to actor Michael Chiklis. 

One user simply tweeted: “Nightmares.”

Another added, “Terrifying.”

"Makes me wanna burn my eyeballs tbh," one user echoed.

Other users shared gifs in reaction to the new look.
