War of the Fat Italians, commonly abbreviated as WOTFI, is an annual series of fighting videos made by SMG4. It's mainly focused on a fight between SMG4 and Mario, which is usually settled by challenges created by X or by the viewers via the comments section, and from the 2015 video onward, always ends in a Rap Battle. As of 2020, 6 rap battles have taken place. The match is usually held by X, who appears in almost every episode of the series, the only exceptions being 2018 due to him being a T-Pose Zombie, 2020 due to him being vaguely absent in The YouTube Arc and 2021 due to him being vaguely absent in the Genesis Arc. The above mentioned matches are held instead by Waluigi, the Youtube Remote spirit and the Mario crystal respectively.

As of the first season, eleven editions had been held.

  • The original idea of War Of The Fat Italians came from X, which explains why X is usually the host.
  • War of the Fat Italians 2014 (200k Special!) is the first video that celebrates SMG4's subscriber count.
  • (2011) In the first WOFTI episode, Toad was the one who first came up with the name.
  • (2014) SMG4 dancing can be also seen in the outro of Who Let The Chomp Out?
  • As the years go by, the challenges get weirder and weirder.
  • (2014) The Gay Sex challenge shows Mario might be gay because he went on with the challenge, while SMG4 was pretty freaked out by the challenge.
  • X always breaks up their fights before the wars.
  • (2018), (2020) & (2021) War of the Fat Italians is usually hosted by X. However, he was replaced by Waluigi in 2018 to torture Mario & SMG4 because X became a T-Pose Zombie and it was the final episode of The Waluigi Arc. In 2020, he was replaced by the spirit of the YouTube Remote to declare which is better and is worthy of the channel for the SMG4's Gang and SMG3's Anti-Cast as he was absent in The YouTube Arc. In 2021, he was replaced by the Mario crystal to stop the SMG4's Gang from rescuing Mario as he was absent in the Genesis Arc.
  • (2014) When SMG4 was dancing, Michael Jackson's Thriller could be playing on the dance-off.
  • (2017) TheOdd1sOut, a fellow YouTube animator, helped animate a scene in "who is better at animating".
  • The eighth in the series was actually revealed in a CHANNEL update of all things. It was shown in SMG4 Direct (HUGE CHANNEL UPDATE), alongside SMG4's own series Hitbox.

  • (2017) In the rap battle, the song that can be heard is actually Napal Baji made by PSY.
  • So far, War of the Fat Italians 2017 and War of the Fat Italians 2018, the trailers for both episodes are made using Source Film Maker (SFM). (A War is Coming... #TeamSMG4 and #TeamMario and War of the Fat Italians 2018 Official Trailer).
  • (2016) The episode may have been paying homage to the WarioWare series because of how the jingle from the games played in the Triple Round and the Boss Round against Bowser during the Rap Battle. *Note that the Jingle also plays during the Triple Round in WOTFI 2017
  • (2015) The music that plays after you enter a single-player minigame in the WarioWare series plays at 7:23.
  • The first Rap Battle in the WOFTI Series was actually made in WOFTI 2015, rather than the first battle (2011)

  • Currently, SMG4: War Of The Fat Italians 2018, SMG4: War Of The Fat Italians 2020, and SMG4: War Of The Fat Italians 2021 are the only episodes that took place during a story arc.
  • War Of The Fat Italians 2020 is the first episode to have an originally composed Rap Battle, composed by AJ DiSpirito.
  • Interestingly, all of the rap battles that took place on even a numbered year so far have a boss battle until 2021 rolled around.
