Mario is the titular protagonist of The Super Mario Bros. Movie. Mario and Luigi worked for Foreman Spike before they opened their new business, Super Mario Bros. Plumbing, in Brooklyn. At some point, Mario and Luigi enter a pipe that lead to the Mushroom World. Luigi is taken hostage by Bowser while Mario meets Toad and Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom. They join forces to rescue Luigi and stop Bowser.

Mario is shown to be friendly, as even when it was his first time visiting the Mushroom Kingdom, he did not hesitate to give a Coin back to a Toad who dropped it or greet the Toads. He cares a lot about Luigi, as he gets annoyed when people talk lowly about him. He is shown to be confident in himself, sometimes too much, to the point of thinking he can handle a challenge despite having no idea how to, resulting in him getting himself injured in the process. Ironically, he has a distaste for mushrooms, as shown by him picking them off his pasta in disgust and refusing to eat a Super Mushroom.

For the whole movie, Mario speaks in a (faint) Brooklyn accent, much like his counterparts from both the Super Mario Bros. Super Show and the 1993 Super Mario Bros. live-action film, respectively. Although, in the film’s opening, he does briefly speak in a very similar Italian accent, much like his game counterpart, for the in-universe commercial about of their company, Super Mario Bros. Plumbing.

Codex Statistics

Tier: 9-A, Far Higher with Power-Ups. At least 6-A with the Super Star

Dimensionality: 3-D

Attack Potency: Room level (Can overpower several Koopas, who can survive their karts exploding, which was calculated at these levels), Far Higher with Power-Ups (Power-Ups generally make Mario far more powerful upon usage, noting that it makes him stronger and allows him to jump higher. Was initially easily overpowered by Donkey Kong, to later then easily overpowering him upon using the Super Bell. Other Power-Up users such as Princess Peach can keep up with Bowser and many of his minions). At least Continent level with the Super Star (The Super Star is treated as the most powerful item ever seen in Bowser's eyes, which should make it stronger than the Banzai Bill. The Banzai Bill was going to destroy the Mushroom Kingdom according to Bowser, which we can see is the largest place in the world maps)

Durability: Room level (Was nearly unharmed from the Blue Shell destroying Donkey Kong's kart easily. Survived crashing through a brick wall with Luigi. Took a fall from the sky to the ocean. Took a beating from Donkey Kong, who can casually destroy two barrels. Survived hits from Bowser, who can casually toss and destroy cars), Far Higher with Power-Ups (Power-Ups greatly increase Mario's power. All Power-Ups allow the users to survive an extra hit without taking large amounts of damage, such as the shockwave from the Banzai Bill's explosion, or an explosion from King Bob-omb). Continent level with the Super Star (Should be comparable to its striking strength), Invulnerability makes him hard to kill

Striking Strength: Room Class, Far Higher with Power-Ups. At least Continent Class with the Super Star

Lifting Strength: Peak Human (Lifted Donkey Kong from underwater and swam up to the surface), At least Class 50 with Power-Ups (Comparable to Donkey Kong, who lifted around 51 cages containing prisoners), Far Higher with the Super Star (Easily surpasses Bowser, who's stronger than Donkey Kong)

Travel Speed: Superhuman (Comparable to Princess Peach, who can parkour at fast speeds and run up on walls), Hypersonic+ with Power-Ups (Can keep pace with the Banzai Bill, which should be comparable to the fastest missile, The Zircon missile. The Zircon missile can travel at 11,000 kilometers per hour), Far Higher with the Super Star

Combat Speed: Supersonic, Hypersonic+ with Power-Ups (Mario upon using the Super Bell easily outpaced Donkey Kong, and is generally shown to move faster upon usage), Far Higher with the Super Star

Reaction Speed: Supersonic (Fast enough to react to Bullet Bills and comparable to Donkey Kong who dodged a cannon), Hypersonic+ with Power-Ups (Can navigate and dodge upcoming obstacles as he flies away from the Banzai Bill. Cat Mario was able to dodge every single attack Donkey Kong could dish out), Far Higher with the Super Star

Stamina: Superhuman (Trained through an obstacle course for an entire day through day until next day's sunset without without resting)

Range: Standard Melee Range, Tens of Meters with Koopa Shells

Intelligence: Gifted (Mario is quick to adapt to his surroundings and can quickly learn new things. He was able to nearly complete Peach's obstacle course in a little over a day, learn how to drive a go-kart while also fighting, master the usage of power-ups, graduated with Luigi, and has two jobs of a demolition man and plumber)

Powers and Techniques

Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Acrobatics (Even without the need of Power-Ups, Mario is shown to be able to parkour through small spaces and around a construction site while also assisting Luigi. Can jump and flip around Koopas while also landing on their karts), Accelerated Development (In a little over a day, Mario was able to nearly complete Peach's course after initially failing to complete even the starting sections, only failing due to being cocky at the end. This is further shown when Mario was able to fight off various Koopas by jumping around through different karts, and when he's seen to be more accustomed to maneuver himself around the Mushroom Kingdom as he fights a group of Bowser's minions; or while also navigating himself against the Banzai Bill), Sheer Will (Despite getting casually getting beaten by Donkey Kong, Mario still stood strong for the entire fight, which Peach noted that Mario doesn't know when to quit), Vehicular Mastery (Land Vehicles; Can drive his own custom kart and adapt to it fairly quickly, to the point where he can fight a large group of koopas as he drives), Paint Manipulation which includes: Conceptual Manipulation (Paint makes up everything, anyone in Mario can remove paint by attacking), Life Manipulation & Death Manipulation (Paint is all of life, and removal of it can cause a person or object to have no life within, having their concept of life be removed), Blood Manipulation (Paint makes up all of blood within someone, removing it is the same as removing their blood), Mind Manipulation & Memory Manipulation (Paint makes up the mind, as paint beings can directly speak to your mind by coloring your thoughts. Loss of paint can also remove your mind and memories), Spatial Manipulation (Paint makes up all of space. Removing it makes space as if it was solid), Metaphysics Manipulation (Soul Manipulation; Paint makes up souls and ghosts. Removing it is the equivalent of destroying your soul), Empathic Manipulation (Paint makes up all emotions. Removing it would mean the removal of emotion), Power Nullification (Paint makes up the ability to use powers.

In this case, Mario wanting to reunite with Luigi as he deeply cares for him), Fate Manipulation, Reality Warping, Plot Manipulation (Plot Armor; Mario is protected by The Desire, which defies time, space, and the laws of the universe in order to reunite him with his special ones).

With the Mini Mushroom, The user shrinks to miniscular sizes along with having their strength greatly lowered to the degree that Toad can easily overpower Bowser and trap him in a jar), Statistics Amplification (With the Super Mushroom, the user's strength and mobility are greatly amplified along with them becoming physically bigger. Power-Ups are generally noted to give the users power), Vibration Manipulation (Mario's Ground Pound is strong enough to shake the ground, causing nearby enemies to fall over), Statistics Reduction (With the Mini Mushroom, The user shrinks to miniscular sizes, along with having their strength greatly lowered to the degree that Toad can easily overpower Bowser and trap him in a jar), Invulnerability, Light Manipulation, & Power Bestowal (The Super Star's power makes the users invincible from any damage, along with producing a light from their bodies and movement. This power can be shared with anyone who grabs it)



Optional Equipment

Super Mushroom, Mini Mushroom, Super Bell, Super Leaf, Super Star, Kart
