Talk:Mario Bros. (game)

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia


Can anyone confirm that this could be a prequel to Super Mario Bros.? The article says the brothers entered a pipe the enemies were emerging from at the end of the game. Is this true? -- Son of Suns

If I remember right, there was a certain history of Mario that stayed very true to the video games, yet filled in small gaps between them with unconfirmed information, such as the one you mentioned. It was one of the top his on Mind you, this was years ago (more than seven), but I could see it having stayed in someone's mind. I believed it for quite some time myself. In any case, we are given no reason to believe that the location of this game on the Mario timeline should "go against" the assumption that the games are released in chronological order (with the exception of certain games featuring baby characters). So, what I'm saying is that yes, it's a prequel to Super Mario Bros. only so far as Donkey Kong was a prequel to Mario Bros. Still though, it makes perfect sense if you consider The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! interpretation that Mario and Luigi came from Brooklyn. Stumpers! 17:23, 4 January 2008 (EST)
It's not a prequel at all. A prequel is a SEQUEL that takes place earlier. As this game came out before Super Mario Bros it cannot be a prequel, merely a predecessor. 19:38, 10 October 2014 (EDT)
Don't respond to comments that have a long year period between them. Thanks! – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 18:01, 17 December 2016 (EST)

Article Name[edit]

Would anyone else like to see "Mario Bros." as the header to this page, and then the page currently at "Mario Bros." be changed to "Mario Bros. (disambiguation)"? I just feel that more people will search "Mario Bros." looking for this title instead of looking for the characters. Stumpers! 17:23, 4 January 2008 (EST)

? Mushroom[edit]

Well, Toadbert101 (talk) and I were playing the SMB3 battle mode of this game, and we found a ? Mushroom, that makes the Mario switch to where Luigi is, and also switches their current state (eg: If Super Luigi and just Mario were in the game, and Mario or Luigi got a ? Mushroom, Super Luigi would shrink back to Luigi and Mario will become Super Mario.) So, does this have an article, or not just yet? C???

Not that I'm aware of, and I worked on the early part of the glossary and got beyond articles like ? Barrel. I'm pretty sure someone would have made a redirect to the appropriate name if that were the case. Are you talking about the arcade version or the GBA remake? Stumpers! 21:42, 8 October 2008 (EDT)
The SNES one in SMB3, from SMAS+SMW. C???

That mushroom is exclusive to Super Mario All-Stars. See the report at TMK.

The rare red "?" mushroom item adds a new twist. Here's how it works: If Mario and Luigi are both "Super" or both small, they will trade places if one of them touches the mushroom. However, if one brother is super and the other is small, it makes the super brother small and the small brother super, and they do not trade places.

I'm not sure about the advance ports, but judging from the "new twist" statement it's not in the original SMB3. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 07:12, 26 October 2008 (EDT)

Voice Acting[edit]

Who voiced the "Classic" and "Battle" options on the GBA multiplayer version? I would upload a sound clip of it but it won't let me yet.

Split Mario Bros. Classic from this article?[edit]

Seeing as we have most remakes split, and considering that the GBA remake has a different name from the original, should Mario Bros. Classic be split off this article? I'm planning on making a proposal for this, but first I want to see if the community is in support of this idea. -YFJ (talk · edits) 16:35, March 25, 2019 (EDT)


this is where many people were introduced to Luigi
