An Italian-American plumber named after the land lord of Shigeru Miyamoto back in the early 80's. Mario, originally a carpenter, fights evil creatures such as: Donkey Kong (they later become friends), Koopas (bad turtles ruled by King Koopa more commonly called Bowser
), goombas (evil mushroomesque fellows), piranha plants, and many more.
Mario's younger brother, Luigi, and he own a small plumbing business in Brooklyn. They were once summoned to an emercengy plumbing problem at which they were required to fix a shower. Upon completion of the task, both of the brothers were sucked into the shower head and transported undergroung. Thus begun their adventures. IN the beginning, all they had to do was jump on turtles ad crabs that came out of pipes, but later they were magically transported to another world. They came to the Mushroom Kingdom. Here it was that they had to rescue the princess and fight the evil hordes of Bowser's army. Mario and Luigi both can use numerous powers such as: a cape, the toonooki, the frog suit, the star, fireballs, metal cap, and many more. They also have a dinosaur buddy named Yoshi that they ride upon and force to consume enemies and berry-like fruits.
Super Mario games have proven to be some of the most entertaining and fun games of all time. They are without a doubt the best action/platformers of all time.
