Main Details

Mario is a submission by DK3. It was added to the main Mercurious website on January 25, 2009. The submission is largely based on Mario from Super Smash Bros. Brawl, although the Side Special was changed to a similar working attack using Mario's tanooki power-up made famous by Super Mario Bros. 3 and the Up Special was changed to match that of Super Mario Galaxy. During the submission's recent revision, his Up Special was changed back to the Super Jump Punch, a staple attack from the officiall Smash Bros. games. Unlike many submissions, this submission does not have a topic on the forums with the appropriate detail.

Character Details

Mario is a fictional character created by game designer Shigeru Miyamoto. Serving as Nintendo's mascot, Mario has appeared in over 200 video games since his creation. Though originally only appearing in platform games, starting with Donkey Kong, currently Mario appears in many genres of games, such as racing, puzzle, role-playing, fighting, and sports games, and others. Mario is depicted as a short, pudgy, Italian-American plumber who lives in the Mushroom Kingdom, having originated from New York. He is best known for repeatedly stopping the plans of Bowser to kidnap Princess Peach and subjugate the Mushroom Kingdom. He also has other enemies and rivals, including Donkey Kong and Wario.

As Nintendo's mascot, Mario is one of the most famous characters in video game history, and his image has become synonymous with video games. Mario games, as a whole, have sold more than 201 million units, making the Mario series the best-selling video game series of all time. Outside the platform games he is traditionally associated with, Mario has appeared in video games in other genres, including the Mario Kart racing series, Nintendo's arcade sports games (such as the Mario Tennis and Mario Golf series), and Nintendo's series of Mario role-playing games. Outside the original games, television shows, film, and comics, he spawned a line of licensed merchandise.
