Super Mario 4koma Manga Theater is a Japan-exclusive series of manga covering several Super Mario games. The series is a collaboration between various artists. Various Super Mario characters appear, including Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, and Wario. The manga also deals with various games such as Super Mario Kart, Super Mario World, and Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, the last of which is also the source of the official artwork seen on the front cover. Unlike other Super Mario-related mangas, this manga does not follow a story; instead, each page follows a Yonkoma format of telling a comedic story within four panels. The first few pages of the books are in full color, while the rest of the pages are in grayscale. The manga ran from 1991 to 1997, and received eleven different books.

Two other series of books exist with the same premise and similar titles, named 4koma Manga Ōkoku (1991-2002) and 4koma Gag Battle (1995-2004).
