|Debut||Donkey Kong (1981)|
Mario is the iconic veteran in the Super Smash Bros. series, now making his fifth appearance. Mario retains his artwork from Mario Party 10. While not receiving much, Mario has received a few different moves as well as a tiny downgrade in strength but increase in weight. Despite this, Mario is still notable as an average character in stats.
Mario is noted as an all-around character, making him easy to adapt to. Mario's attacks do fairly decent damage and his speed is decent as well for a somewhat "heavy" character. Despite this, Mario does have some downfalls. One of his downfalls include him reacting not quite fast, meaning players can strike him somewhat easily. Overall, Mario is still a good character either way.
