"Welcome to 'Subcon', the land of dreams. We have been cursed by Wart and we are completely under his evil spell. We have been waiting for your arrival."
— Unknown Subcon, Super Mario Bros. 2 (USA)

The Subcons, also known as Subcon Fairies or the Muu people, are a species of peaceful fairy-folk found in the land of dreams, also known as Subcon, which they protect. They live in a kingdom in the clouds (presumably known as Muu), where they are ruled by the Human King Ōsama.

Likely related to the large variety of fairy species, Subcons have small but apparently aerodynamically powerful insectoid wings, although whether this hints at an arthropod-based evolution or whether these wings have evolved this way due to convergent evolution is up to debate. They are thought to all possess black hair, and traditional garbs of their species superficially resembles pajama onesies, typically seen in red or pink coloration which possibly denotes gender.

A large number of their kind, though far from the majority, seem to have betrayed the Muu Kingdom, donning white masks as part of the 8-Bit Gang and becoming referred to as Beezos, Shy Guys and Snifits, although these may all be instead related species as their faces are hidden away.

Subcons are telepathic and while capable of vocal speech can contact others through the subconscious, which has been recorded as being done in times of great duress. While they appear physically weak they are known to protect the dream world as well as their own kingdom, and are known to be skilled practitioners of magic or similar arts, as they can pull people through alternate dimensions at their behest.

They are very closely related to the Sprixie species.
