The Super Mario 64 Original Soundtrack is a video game album that was produced and copyrighted by Nintendo and published by Pony Canyon. The album was released in Japan and North America in 1996 and Europe in 1997. The soundtrack has 34 tracks from Super Mario 64 as well as the "It's a Me, Mario!" voice clip from the game's boot-up sequence; the final track is a bonus piano version of "Piranha Plant's Lullaby" performed by Koji Kondo. The Japanese release is also the first of ten soundtracks in the Nintendo 64 Sound Series.

The soundtrack is featured in Super Mario 3D All-Stars alongside the Super Mario Sunshine Original Soundtrack and Super Mario Galaxy Original Soundtrack, albeit with a slightly altered version of the Japanese cover used to represent it.

The soundtrack is also featured in the Super Mario Mash-up in Minecraft, though "Dire, Dire Docks," "Looping Steps," and "Staff Roll" are the only songs not to be included.
