Mario (マリオ, Mario) is a veteran fighter in the game Super Smash Bros. Universe. He is the unofficial mascot of Nintendo, and the main character of the Super Mario franchise. His moveset has gained major changes in order to breathe new life into his character

Changes from Smash 4

Mario's design has undergone a major change from his previous appearance in Smash 4. His design in Universe is based off of his most recent renders and proportions from Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash along with adding a touch of realism. These include...

  • Mario's hat now appears to be made of cotton, and has a very prominent stitching of his iconic "M" on the front.
  • Similar to Sonic in SSB4, Mario's eyes have become glossy and shiny. This is in line with his most recent render for Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash. In addition, his eye color has gained more detail in texture, becoming more realistic in design and style.
  • In a step back to Brawl, Mario's overalls have become more detailed in texture, being made of denim once again. The difference this time being that they are brighter, and more vibrant.
  • Mario's color scheme is now even brighter than it was in Smash 4, in order to "stand out" and to showcase the power of the NX console.
  • His shoes have become more detailed in texture, as well as his gloves, which now appear to be made of cotton.
  • For the first time in Smash history, Mario now has realistic skin textures on his model, said textures being based on his Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash and Mario Party 10 Renders.
  • Mario has gained shoelaces on his shoes, Universe, being the first time Mario has used shoelaces on his design.
