Mario is the eponymous hero of the Super Mario series of games who makes his sixth appearance in the Super Smash Bros. series of games. His moves are unchanged from his previous Smash appearances, but most of Mario's projectile moves have been buffed a bit so he can compete with others better.
"Mario is a plumber born in the city of Brooklyn in New York. He owns Mario Bros. Plumbing with his brother, Luigi, and has helped save the Mushroom Kingdom several times over. How Mario found the Mushroom Kingdom was through a typical plumbing job. While working on the drainage pipes, Mario and Luigi stumbled across a huge, green pipe that led to the Mushroom Kingdom. Upon arriving there, the two brothers heard of what had happened to Princess Peach and set off on an adventure. Since then, Mario's been saving Peach from Bowser countless times. He's also a professional tennis player, go-kart racer, and a doctor. Even though Mario's got a huge history of jobs, he still does his plumbing well!"
Mario's trophy can be obtained by completing either Classic or All-Star Mode as himself.
