Mario is once again voiced by Charles Martinet, who also reprises his long-time role as LuigiWario, and Waluigi, albeit mostly with the same voice clips from Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Trophy Description

As iconic as iconic gets, this gaming celebrity is known for saving the world from Bowser. He’s got amazing jumping skills and makes use of a wide range of transformations. In his free time, he plays too many sports to count. In Smash Bros., he’s a well-rounded fighter you can rely on. Say it with me: “It’s-a me, Mario!”


  • A glitch from 1.0.7 shows when Mario performs his side taunt on Ω Gerudo Valley, his hair is missing when taking off his cap, revealing the inside of his head.
  • The original project proposal for Smash 4 stated that the fighters would have four custom special moves instead of the three that are in the final game. Mario was used as an example. The unused special move in the proposal would've had Mario release two fireballs for his neutral special instead of one.
  • Dr. Mario was originally going to be an alternate costume for Mario, but was instead developed as a separate character in favor of retaining Dr. Mario's unique traits from Melee.
  • Mario is present on more newcomer posters than any other fighter. He appears in eleven promotional posters, namely for VillagerWii Fit TrainerRosalina & LumaGreninjaRobinBowser Jr.Duck HuntMega ManPac-ManCloud, and Corrin.
  • Mario is required to be used in 3 solo events, more than all other characters.
    • He and Luigi are also the only pair to be in more than 1 co-op event together.
  • Mario's alternate trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U resembles his Adventure Mode trophy in Melee.
  • Mario, Toon Link and Duck Hunt are the only characters in the 3DS version whose Star KO screams can be heard when their tokens are KO'd in StreetSmash.
