Super Mario Bros. Biography

Mario and Luigi were designed by Shigeru Miyamoto.
Super Mario Bros.

The Mario Bros. are the kind of heroes who can rescue a damsel in distress, unclog a toilet and whip up a mean lasagna before you can say "power-up". But this old school duo is about more than stickin' it to Bowser. Get the low down on the boys who rock the Mushroom Kingdom.

All About Mario

Mario was just keepin' it real as a plumber in Brooklyn until he was sucked down a drain and transported to the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario is the oldest, shortest and chubbiest mustached man. He's known for his do-gooder nature and bravery in the face of danger. His fave sports include go-karting, tennis, baseball and kicking butt (if that counts as a sport). Mario has been romantically linked to his fair share of fair maidens including his first girlfriend Pauline (in Donkey Kong) who was later ousted by Princess Peach Toadstool in Super Mario Bros. He also once snagged a kiss from Princess Daisy in Super Mario Land.

Mario - Did U Know?

  • Mario made his first appearance in Donkey Kong.
  • Mario was first known as "Jumpman".
  • Mario was designed by Shigeru Miyamoto.
  • Mario Says...

    "That's a heaping helpin' of moolah."

    Kickin' It With Luigi

    Luigi is the younger, skinnier and taller brother of Mario. He's known for being a bit more of a chicken than his older bro but he always comes to the rescue if he's needed. In fact, Luigi even went solo to save Mario in Luigi's Mansion on the Nintendo GameCube. And while Mario is known for his killer high-jump, it's thought that Luigi can control gravity, which allows him to remain in the air for longer when he jumps.

    Luigi - Did U Know?
  • Luigi's rival is Waluigi, who is the sidekick to Mario's enemy Wario.
  • Luigi's name is a pun on the Japanese word "ruiji", which means "similar".
  • Princess Daisy is rumored to be Luigi's girlfriend.
  • Luigi Says...
    "I'd feel better if we went back and got my stomach."

    That movie is soo overrated. I never even got what it meant. And, there's also lame songs playing every 5 minutes of the movie. :mad :mad
