SMG4: [TEXTURES NOT FOUND] is the forty-second episode of Season 10 and the five hundred and ninety-seventh overall to be uploaded by SMG4.
This is also the tenth episode of the Halloween Specials. It was aired on October 31, 2020.
Mario, Meggy, and friends are celebrating Halloween when things go very very wrong.
In Steve's corn farm at Rockford, the gang is celebrating their Halloween party, with everyone having fun. Other than that, Mario spotted Boopkins, albeit with black eyes, and commented that he isn't that annoying like he thought he always is. Suddenly, a no-textured version of Boopkins, who can speak, appeared to the gang and scared everyone until he ran away.
Curious, JubJub decided to look for his brother's likeness, and unfortunately was captured by a no-texture look-alike of him, prompting Tari and Belle to find the Boopkins, until they got captured by their lookalikes. Soon, the possessed bodies of the four appeared among the gang, abducting everybody, safe for Mario, Meggy and Whimpu who retreated to a farmhouse.
Trying to be safe by barricading the door, the real Boopkins appeared, prompting Mario to attack it as he thought he is an impostor (due to him experiencing a lot of impostors throughout October). As Meggy held him back, Boopkins told the story of how he got his body stolen; it was an experiment by Professor E. Gadd that made him lose his body, although E. Gadd seemed to be trapped, escaping as the no-textures were distracted. Luckily, there is a way to stop it, which is through a secret lab entrance to his secondary lab outside of Mushroom City. As they were about to leave, the no-textures broke through their barricade they set up earlier, which forced Whimpu to escape alone, while Mario and Meggy tried to hold them back only to have their bodies possessed by the clones offscreen.
As Whimpu tried to find the entrance while encountering the no-textures, he found it, until the no-texture Mario attacked him; fortunately saved by Steve as Whimpu threw a drumstick to trigger Steve's Herobrine form. There, he released E. Gadd, who runs a termination program. As the no-textures arrived, Whimpu managed to divert them, while E. Gadd was complete their termination, with the bodies being transferred back to their respective owners, giving a praising Whimpu.
As trying to figure out how this happened, it was revealed a few months ago before SMG3's banishment to the graveyard that SMG3 bribed E. Gadd to create clones of the gang (as a backup plan to take over SMG4's channel) and the Anti-Cast in case they ever betrayed him. However, due to SMG3 being banished to the Internet Graveyard by Susan, he was unable to pay E. Gadd. In response, E. Gadd decided to throw away the no-textures to the trash, in which they became sentient and swore vengeance.
