Nintendo Character Guide (1993)[edit]

Born in Brooklyn, Mario grew up with a love of fixing things. He was destined to become a plumber and hero from the day he fixed a friend's broken squirt gun. Mario is good natured but unflagging in his crusade for justice and clean bathroom fixtures.

Mario the Man
At first glance, the man we have come to know as "Mario" might appear to be a fairly easily defined character. Call him a madcap plumber who was born and raised in Brooklyn and seems to be forever in search of the oft-kidnapped Princess and you'd be right. But you would also be leaving out a whole lot of the story. Let's take a closer look at Mario.

Mario is Adventurous
He's already launched himself on a handful of harrowing adventures over the last few years. He's always ready to pack up his bag of tools and head off into unknown worlds inhabited by unrecognizable denizens.

Mario is Brave
It must surely take great bravery and courage to fight, usually with bare hands, all of the various and sundry enemies, monsters, creatures and fiends that Mario has encountered over the course of his life. A stout-hearted fellow, to say the least.

Mario is Curious
He has always managed to retain a child's wide-eyed curiosity and inquisitiveness. Nothing goes unexplored. It's his incredible curiosity that leads him to hurtling down pipes to who-knows-where; to unearth hidden mushrooms and fire flowers; to bash his head into thousands of blocks in search of hidden secrets and treasures.

Mario is Resourceful
His inventive mind can puzzle its way out of any jam. He can figure out how to ride a giant egg to safety; how to turn a harmless looking turtle shell into a lethal weapon; how to disguise himself as a raccoon or a frog; how to turn a floating feather into a flying cape able to ride the Thermals over foreboding landscapes. What a mind!

Mario is Tolerant
He'll accept anyone or anything at face value. He treats anyone and anything with dignity and respect. He has seen too many things in his travels to be narrow-minded.

The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 Writers Bible[edit]

  • Bio: "Don't let Mario's looks fool you. He may be the shortest, chubbiest, most comedic-looking superhero ever to have his own show, but he always finds an ingenious way to overcome the most overwhelming obstacles in his path, and somehow, save the day. Even if it takes turning into a flying raccoon with superpowers, the irrepressible Mario will cleverly and bravely do his best to outwit the villainous Koopa Clan. He continues the quest when wiser heads would quit. Like a true plumber, he will show up at any hour of the day or night, to solve a crisis that ordinary men refuse to even touch. No matter how many times he's tricked, trapped or defeated, Mario bounces back. His greatest strength is his unconquerable spirit and his willingness to fling himself selflessly into any situation if justice is at stake."

# Name Image First Game / Move Description
1 Mario
Trophy1.png Donkey Kong
Arcade 1981
Known worldwide as Mr. Nintendo, Mario uses his incredible jumping ability to thwart the evil Bowser time after time. While he's best known as a hero, Mario has played many roles, including racer, doctor, golfer, and villain. His tastes have changed over 20 years of gaming; he long ago swapped the colors of his shirt and overalls.
2 Mario [Smash]
Trophy2.png B: Fireball
Smash B: Cape
Mario is a character without any glaring weaknesses and plenty of strong attacks: he's even equipped with a Meteor Smash. He's a straightforward character who'll reflect the actual skills of the player. Mario's Cape will turn other characters in the opposite direction and can also reflect missile weapons.
3 Mario [Smash]
Trophy3.png Up & B: Super Jump Punch
Down & B: Mario Tornado
Mass determines how easily a character can be sent flying, as well as a character's physical strength: Mario's mass is the standard upon which other Smash fighters are measured. His Super Jump Punch sends foes skyward in a shower of coins, while the Mario Tornado pulls in nearby foes, spins them silly, and scatters them every which way.
201 Raccoon Mario Trophy201.png Super Mario Bros. 3
In Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Leafs caused Mario to grow raccoon ears and a tail. By sprinting and rapidly wagging the tail, Mario gained the ability to fly for short periods. Like the Cape in Super Mario World, the tail also reduced the speed at which he fell, making midair moves easier. Needless to say, real raccoons were jealous.
202 Metal Mario Trophy202.png Super Mario 64
Mario was in for a surprise the first time he hit a Metal Box in Super Mario 64. The metal cap that popped out transformed Mario into living metal, giving him great stamina, a heavy tread, and the ability to walk underwater. In Super Smash Bros., Metal Mario showed up as an incredibly stubborn midlevel boss.
203 Paper Mario Trophy203.png Paper Mario
The Star Rod: Bowser stole it, and Mario wants it back. Bowser vs. Mario is familiar for Mario aficionados, but Paper Mario is novel. What this game brings to the 3D polygon-filled gaming world is its art style: everything is wafer thin! What the visuals lack in realism, they more than make up for in unique artistry.
292 Mario and Yoshi Trophy292.png Super Mario World
Yoshi was first introduced in Super Mario World, and the sight of Mario riding the helpful character soon became an enduring image. Despite his Cape, Mario can't fly while astride Yoshi. The pair can make huge jumps and drift slowly back to earth, though. As a last resort, Mario could leap off Yoshi's back to safety.

# Name Image Appearance(s) Description
1 Mario BrawlTrophy001.png NES Donkey Kong
NES Super Mario Bros.
A familiar overall-clad figure who is Nintendo's flagship character. His courage and jumping ability have seen him through countless adventures. He's a multitalented plumber with the knowledge of a physician, a top-notch golfer, and a veteran tennis umpire. Is his jumping prowess a boon from his girder-climbing days?
2 Mario Finale BrawlTrophy002.png Wii Super Smash Bros. Brawl Mario with a Smash Ball, unleashing his ultimate attack. The twin dragons of flame he releases wallop all characters in range. The flames spread up and down, so it's best to release them from the edge of the screen at an appropriate height. His flaming eyes are proof of his excitement for this explosive attack.
146 Striker Mario BrawlTrophy146.png GCN Super Mario Strikers
Wii Mario Strikers Charged
A team captain in Super Mario Strikers, which features combat- style soccer that allows fighting and items. Mario proves to be a great all-around player, well balanced on offense and defense, and he wields a critical shot--the Mega Strike--that can chalk up a maximum of six goals! Mario is easily identified by the "M" marks on his spikes.
148 Paper Mario BrawlTrophy148.png Wii Super Paper Mario A legendary hero whose adventure unfolds when he sets out to rescue Princess Peach from the nefarious clutches of Count Bleck. He has the ability to flip the world from 2-D to 3-D and back again. If he grabs a Mega Star, he'll transform into a pixelated giant Mario. In this state, he's invulnerable and capable of stomping through enemies and obstacles with ease.

Snake's codec[edit]

  • Colonel: Snake, you know who that is?
  • Snake: You're kidding, right? It's Mario.
  • Colonel: Mario made his first appearance in 1981, and since then, he's become a worldwide phenomenon. There's probably not a single person who doesn't know Mario. He's that famous.
  • Snake: Good thing I survived long enough to meet him on the field of battle, huh.
  • Colonel: This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance, Snake. Now get out there and show him what you're made of. No regrets.
  • Snake: Got it.

Mario SSB4 Trophy Mario.png SSB4TrophyMario.png NES Donkey Kong Classics (09/1988)
NES Super Mario Bros. (10/1985)
As iconic as iconic gets, this gaming celebrity is known for saving the world from Bowser. He's got amazing jumping skills and makes use of a wide range of transformations. In his free time, he plays too many sports to count. In Smash Bros., he's a well-rounded fighter you can rely on. Say it with me: "It's-a me, Mario!" It's-a him! Maaario! Whether he's wearing one of his special outfits or just his normal blue dungarees, this running, jumping, Bowser-bashing, princess-saving hero is an all-round superstar. And in this game, he's got enough tricks up his sleeve to deal with anything. If you don't know which fighter to pick, Mario's a solid choice.
Mario (Alt.) SSB4 Trophy Mario (Alt).png SSB4TrophyMarioAlt.png NES Donkey Kong Classics (09/1988)
NES Super Mario Bros. (10/1985)
Super Jump Punch is an up-special move that lets you leap high into the air, carrying any fighters you strike along with you. You'll be invincible for a moment after you launch this attack. The default side-special move, Cape, will flip a fighter around. Keep a foe from returning with this move! Mario's Super Jump Punch takes you high into the air, and if you catch an opponent with it, they'll go up with you. Try to hit them at the very start of the move to do the most damage. His default side special, Cape, can flip fighters around. If you're really crafty, you can even use it to keep someone from getting back on the stage!
Super Jump Punch is an up-special move that lets you leap high into the air, carrying any fighters you strike along with you. You'll be invincible for a moment after you launch this attack. The default side-special move, Cape, will flip a fighter around, making it easy to send a foe who's trying to grab the edge of the stage to their doom!
Mario Finale N/A SSB4TrophyMarioFinale.png Break the Smash Ball and unleash Mario's Final Smash. Mario will fire a devastating blast of fire in the direction he's facing. The attack covers a wide range and travels far, so it's best to fire this from one side of the stage to the other. The damage is impressive, and it can actually carry foes right off the screen! When Mario gets his hands on a Smash Ball, he can activate this Final Smash. Flames spiral outwards in two intertwining stream, catching opponents in the wide blast with ease. It deals plenty of damage, and can also push foes off the screen entirely. Fire it from an elevated position to take full advantage of its vertical range!
Tanooki Mario & Kitsune Luigi TanookiMario&KitsuneLuigiTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A If you find a Super Leaf, Mario transforms into Tanooki Mario! His newfound tail works as a weapon and as a propeller to slow his fall. His brother, Luigi, won't turn into a Tanooki, though—he becomes Kitsune Luigi. Wouldn't want to have trouble telling the two apart, would we? When Mario uses a Super Leaf, he grows a tail and turns into Tanooki Mario, a very handy form indeed. Likewise, Luigi turns into Kitsune Luigi. Both of them can swing their tails to attack enemies, or wag their tails to slowly float down after a jump, almost like they're walking on air.
Statue Mario StatueMarioTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A Statue Mario is invincible and will be ignored by his enemies. If he transforms in midair, he'll do a nice Thwomp impression but he can't move! Well, unless a moving platform carries him into unlucky enemies. Give it a try in Super Mario 3D Land! Statue Mario's not just invincible - he's invisible to enemies. If Mario turns into Statue Mario in mid-air, he'll slam down and be stuck to the spot. Moving platforms will still carry him, though, and he'll knock down anyone in his way. Try it next time you play Super Mario 3D Land!
Boomerang Mario BoomerangMarioTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A If you know how the Boomerang Bros. like to fight, they really aren't that tough. But if Mario BECOMES a Boomerang Bro—Boomerang Mario—what then? Will his opponents be stunned by his new moves? At the least, throwing a boomerang makes things more fun! "Before you judge someone, walk a mile in their shoes." Mario's taken that to the next level with the Boomerang Bros. - he's put on the whole outfit! As Boomerang Mario, he'll not just have more attack power - he'll have a big dollop of fun flinging that boomerang around. Great times!
Mario (With Propeller Box) PropellerBoxTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A Mario with his head in a Propeller Box. He looks like something you'd see in a parade. But wait! That propeller isn't just for show—Mario can use it in the middle of a jump to go even higher. And it'll slow his fall back to the ground too! It's Mario, but with a Propeller Box on his head. It looks like some kind of weird parade costume... Unlike a parade costume, though, the propeller isn't just for show - Mario can use it mid-jump to send himself soaring into the air, and then float gently back down to the ground afterwards!
Mario + Standard Kart StandardMarioTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A Customizing your ride is part of the fun of Mario Kart 7. Choose the best frame, tires, and glider to make your own dream machine! You can come up with some outlandish combinations, but I think Mario looks best when you keep things simple. Customising your kart in Mario Kart 7 is a lot of fun. Pick your favourite frame, tyres and glider, and make your mark out on the track! Maybe your favourites are the basic ones. Nothing wrong with that! Flashy is all well and good, but there's something to be said for "simple-but-effective".
Mario (Gold Block)
Mario (With Gold Block)
GoldBlockheadMarioTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A Oh no! Has the karma for smashing all those blocks finally caught up with Mario, and now he's doomed to wear a block on his head forever? Not at all! This Gold Block gives Mario coins whenever he runs and jumps. Cha-ching! Everyone loves getting more coins! Uh-oh! is this payback for all the blocks Mario's smashed over the years?! Oh, wait. It's actually an awesome bonus! With the Gold Block on his head, running and jumping make that familiar sound: Da-ding! Da-ding! Da-di-di-di-di-ding! That's right - you get coins! Coins galore!
Paper Mario PaperMarioTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A The paper-thin Mario from the Paper Mario series recently quested for the wish-granting Royal Stickers. These magic stickers are for more than just collecting, though. Mario can use them to change his paper world, and nothing helps him in battle more than a sticker! A paper-thin version of Mario from the Paper Mario series.. Most recently, he set off on a sticker-packed adventure to find the wish-granting Royal Stickers. Stickers aren't just for collecting, though - they're for making bridges, opening ancient doors, and even for taking on foes in battle!
Mario Golf: World Tour GolfMarioTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A Looks like Mario is really on his game today! Or he just sent his ball off the course and into the trees—it's hard to tell. Getting a ball out of the rough is part of golf! It adds a bit of adventure to the game, though the undersea course in this world tour probably adds more. Mario looks like he's having a good game here! Or maybe he's just whacked his ball out of sight and into the trees. It's anyone's guess, really. Well getting a ball out of the rough can still be fun. Things like that give the game a touch of adventure, which is something world tour is just full of - especially the underwater course!
Bee Mario N/A SSB4TrophyBeeMario.png Wii Super Mario Galaxy (11/2007)
Wii Super Mario Galaxy 2 (05/2010)
Do you hear that buzzing? Whatever could it...bee? Bee Mario! Finding a Bee Mushroom allows Mario to buzz around in the air, land on flowers, and stick to walls covered in honey. Oh, this is the bee's knees! However, Bee Mario can't sting his foes. But that's fine--you don't really want to be that kind of bee, do you? If you don't want to be Mario any more, be Bee Mario instead! Just find a Bee Mushroom, and you can buzz around in the air, land on flowers and stick to walls covered in honey. See? It'll be the bee's knees! The only bee thing you won't be doing is stinging. But that's not the kind of bee you want to be anyway, now is it?
Boo Mario N/A SSB4TrophyBooMario.png Wii Super Mario Galaxy (11/2007)
Wii Super Mario Galaxy 2 (05/2010)
Are you afraid of ghosts? Maybe it will help to see the world as they do. Become Boo Mario with a Boo Mushroom, and then explore their world! Shake your Wii Remote to make Boo Mario go through walls. Boo Mario blends in OK, but even as a ghost he keeps his trademark hat. The other Boos don't seem to mind, thankfully. Boos are always tricky to deal with, so if you can't beat 'em, join 'em! All you need to do is grab a Boo Mushroom, and you'll become a Boo, letting you turn invisible, slip straight through walls and even speak Booish! You'd think Boos wouldn't fall for it, what with that trademark cap still firmly on top of your head...but luckily, they do.
Spring Mario N/A SSB4TrophySpringMario.png Wii Super Mario Galaxy (11/2007)
Wii Super Mario Galaxy 2 (05/2010)
Boingee boingee boingee... It's Spring Mario, bouncing along and having a grand time! Just get a Spring Mushroom, and then press the A Button right when you land for a super-high jump! If you have a fear of heights, though, there's nothing wrong with staying in place and just bouncing a little. Boing! Sproing! Mario's turned into a spring! One touch of a Spring Mushroom and he becomes Spring Mario. He'll bounce SUPER high if you press the A Button right when he lands. Doesn't it make you feel like just bouncing on the spot? Boing, boing, boing...
Rainbow Mario N/A SSB4TrophyRainbowMario.png Wii Super Mario Galaxy (11/2007)
Wii Super Mario Galaxy 2 (05/2010)
What would you get if you combined Mario with a bouncing, rainbow-colored star? An amazing, invincible Rainbow Mario, of course! Plus, Mario will glow with twinkling stars and have and an energetic song play for the duration. Doesn't that make you want to run out and grab a Rainbow Star right now? What would you do if you found a star that glowed in seven colours? "Grab it quick"? Well, that would be the smart thing to do, because it'd probably be a Rainbow Star! It turns everyone's favourite moustachioed man into a...well, a rainbow-coloured mouastachioed man. Not only does he become invincible, but he looks fab!
Mario + Standard Bike N/A SSB4TrophyMarioStandardBike.png Wii Mario Kart Wii (04/2008) In Mario Kart Wii, bikes were the big, new thing. This Standard Bike M is, as you'd expect, a very standard bike--its speed, weight, acceleration, handling, off-road, drift, and mini-turbo stats are all decidedly middle of the road. This makes it a great choice for Mario Kart beginners or for series veterans trying out bikes for the first time.
Propeller Mario N/A SSB4TrophyPropellerMario.png Wii New Super Mario Bros. Wii (11/2009)
Wii U New Super Mario Bros. U (11/2012)
You can tell just by the sound that there's something different about the propeller on Mario's head. It must be because it's made of rubber! In any case, Propeller Mushrooms transform Mario into Propeller Mario. Shake the Wii Remote to send Mario zooming up into the air! The propeller on Propeller Mario's head makes such an awesome sound. Not like an engine or a motor - it's more like it's powered by an elastic band. Grabbing a Propeller Mushroom turns Mario into this form, letting you send him whirling waaaaay up into the air, making that awesome sound as he goes!
Penguin Mario N/A SSB4TrophyPenguinMario.png Wii New Super Mario Bros. Wii (11/2009)
Wii U New Super Mario Bros. U (11/2012)
Ahh, the life of a penguin... So carefree. At last, Mario too can enjoy the feeling of gliding across the ice by donning the Penguin Suit. Not only that, but this suit unlocks other penguin abilities too! Mario can swim gracefully and, just like a penguin, dream of a day when he can fly. What sort of penguin-y activities do you think Mario can get up to while wearing a Penguin Suit? Sliding around on his belly? Swimming gracefully through water? Tragically looking to the skies, reflecting on unfulfilled dreams of using his penguin wings to fly? Well, the truth is...he can do all of these things, just like a real penguin!
Cloud Mario N/A SSB4TrophyCloudMario.png Wii Super Mario Galaxy 2 (05/2010) Guess what happens when Mario collects a Cloud Flower! Oh, wait. You can already see exactly what happens... That's right, Mario dons a fluffy hat, overalls, and a scarf and gets a whole lot lighter. He can jump farther, stay in the air longer, walk on clouds, and even make cloud platforms. This outfit is all silver lining!
Rock Mario N/A SSB4TrophyRockMario.png Wii Super Mario Galaxy 2 (05/2010) If you're a fan of rock and roll, try picking up a Rock Mushroom. When Mario's transformed into Rock Mario, a simple shake of the Wii Remote can turn him into a big, rolling boulder, allowing him to plow through crystals and tough foes. The most amazing thing about Rock Mario, though, is that he can still jump.
Flying Squirrel Mario N/A SSB4TrophyFlyingSquirrelMario.png Wii U New Super Mario Bros. U (11/2012) When Mario grabs a Super Acorn, he turns into Flying Squirrel Mario! Like a real flying squirrel, he can hold out his arms and glide through the air. That must feel really, really awesome! This power isn't just for fun, though—it has practical uses, too, like helping him grab the coins in midair. Da-ding! Da-ding! Da-ding! When Mario grabs a Super Acorn, he turns into Flying Squirrel Mario! Like a real flying squirrel, he can hold out his arms and glide through the air, which probably feels really awesome. This power isn't just for fun, though — it has practical uses, too, like helping him grab coins floating in mid-air. Da-ding! Da-ding! Da-ding! Da-ding!

The official home for Mario[edit]

"Cheerful. Inspiring. Jumpy. Everyone loves Mario—and for good reason! The mustached one has been bravely battling bad guys for decades, and shows no signs of slowing down. He’s remarkably resilient for a plumber, smashing bricks and bouncing off walls like a parkour star. These amazing athletic skills are put to good use in a variety of sports, like tennis, baseball, soccer, and even auto racing. Mario may be a sporting superstar, but his main interest, of course, is keeping his beloved Princess Peach safe and away from the clutches of Bowser."[10]
