Bowser always kidnaps Princess Peach.. And he's a bachelor isn't he..?
"Oh wait, where did Baby Bowser come from..?"

Maybe Peach lets him take her away..

well Mario was the first character made by Nintendo and became really famous. So whenever you think of Nintendo, you think of Mario, so therefore, Mario has become a figurehead representing the company itself. Like when you think of Sonic when you hear Sega


WRONG!!! DK was the first character made by nintendo, and mario was created as a side character in the DK game, but that character that had to dodge the barrels became more famous that DK himself, so they gave him the name Mario and started creating games with him as the main character, and btw, he has that hat cuz the designers found easier to give him a hat than making an animation of his hair while falling

so your saying because he made nintendo the way he is, mario is the best there is?


First of all, no one said anything about "best" character. The mere fact that you're so fervent on trying to figure this out shows that Mario has some sort of influence on video gamers by leaving his mark.

No one is saying that Mario is the best character, or that his games are the best, but you cannot dismiss the fact that he is a very prolific video game character. The plot of his games were very simple ~ save the damsel in distress. His first appearance in Donkey Kong had the same idea, and this was accomplished by simple tasks of jumping, hitting and basically running shitless through levels in order to save the princess.

In short... this was fucking fun.

And they expanded the idea with the release of Super Mario Bros. It was now a world where we save another damsel in distress by running through levels littered with enemies, items, power-ups, traps, and other obstacles that basically test your wit and control. From basic side scroller, it turned into puzzle solver ~ then zones were added ~ worlds, characters, plots, mini-games ~ it was a glory in the expansion of the series, more than the glory of the popularity of a character.

Why Mario is so popular is because he was the start of what would soon become the frame work of 2D adventure games to come. I don't consider Mario popular in himself, rather, it's because of the video games that he was a part of that he has taken a special place in many gamers' hearts.
