Europe is a continent located on Earth. This real world setting appeared in "7 Continents for 7 Koopas" from The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, with the Louvre representing it. When Bowser tried to conquer the entire Real World, he put Kootie Pie Koopa under control of Europe. Kootie Pie used her magic wand to turn all of the Louvre's famous paintings, such as Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Sandro Botticelli's The Birth of Venus, and Marcel Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase into the Mona Kootie, the Birth of Kootie, and Kootie Descending a Staircase. Mario later stole Kootie Pie's Magic Wand and used it to make The Birth of Kootie flood the Louvre, driving Kootie Pie away.

Europe was later visited in the final two episodes The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3; "The Venice Menace", taking place in Venice, and in "Super Koopa", taking place in Paris.

Countries located in Europe have appeared in various Mario medias. The countries of Germany and Austria appeared in the Club Nintendo comic, "Sag niemals Holerö!". In NES Open Tournament Golf, the country of the United Kingdom is a playable course. Luigi visits the United Kingdom's capital, London, in Mario is Missing!, and Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games take place in London. Other places in Europe that Luigi visits in Mario is Missing! include Paris, Athens, Berlin, Rome, Venice, Moscow, Istanbul and Madrid.
