May 30th, 2013: So in my quest for accuracy in this comic about talking dinosaurs, I needed to know how many enemies there actually are in Super Mario Brothers! I did what all dilettante researchers do these days: I asked Twitter. And Mark came through with this TMK page and enemy count table (scroll down to "enemy inventory"). The total is 552 enemies, but that's WITHOUT any that repeatedly spawn (Spinys, Bullets Bill, etc). So that's your impossible-to-reach minimum count, and I doubled it because I'm counting the Princess's "Second Quest" where the Goombas all turn into Buzzy Beetles, and that gives us our (conservative) total of 1104 evil exes in T-Rex's new game. A more accurate number may be obtained by doing a series of Monte Carlo experiments on the game.
