“The Arc de Triomphe (Arch of Triumph) was built by the architect, Chalgrin, on the orders of Napoleon. It honored the French Empire and the triumph of the French armies during the Revolution. Napoleon died before the structure could be completed in 1836. A small museum inside the arch commemorates both the history of the great general and the building itself. In 1920 the arch became the sight[sic] of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Every evening at 18:30 a delegation from the Old Soldiers Association rekindles the tomb's torch.”

The Arc de Triomphe appears in all versions Mario is Missing!, where the Eternal Flame burning there is stolen by Koopa Troopas during the events of the game, and Luigi is tasked with getting it back and delivering it to the arch. Upon returning it and answering some questions to prove its legitimacy, he is rewarded a prize of 1,750 dollars.

In Mario Party DS, the Arc de Triomphe appears as a landmark in the minigame Globe Gunners.

Mario Kart series[edit]

The Arc de Triomphe appears as a traversable landmark in Paris Promenade and Paris Promenade 3 in Mario Kart Tour. Normally, racers are supposed to drive around it, but they can break through two Piranha Plant wooden cutouts and pass through the arch as a shortcut. However, in Paris Promenade 2, it acts as a background detail and cannot be interacted in any way whatsoever. The Arc de Triomphe returns alongside Paris Promenade in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
