10 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Super Mario

It's-a these ten things you may not know about Mario before. Here we go!

The Top Ten

1 In the Super Mario Bros. manual, Bowser turns Toads into stones, brick blocks & horse plants.

Yes! We all know that Princess Peach has to undo the spell, but what did Mario do to all of those brick blocks that didn't have a coin in it? Brake them. Whoops! Let's put the brick blocks back together & bring the Toads back to life. There you go! I know you're saying "Well, how was Mario & I supposed to know that? " I don't think anybody knew that a bunch of Toads were turned into brick blocks. Maybe, it's because nobody bothered to read the instruction manual. In fact, does anybody ever read instruction manuals for video games?

That's why I break every block I can: to kill Toads. - TheYoshiOverlord

When you punch a block then you kill a Toad

Not true. The Toads were turned into bricks. Not brick blocks. The Toads were glued together when turned into brick so the reason Mario is breaking the brick blocks is to free the Toads. - TheYoshiPyro64

Mario isn't so light-hearted after all

2 "It's-a me, Mario!" was first heard in Super Mario 64.

Now, you know where this whole "It's-a me, Mario! " thing came from.

Knew it. - JustMonika

3 There's a theory that Super Mario Bros. 3 is a stage show.

If you haven't heard about this theory, look it up. Seriously, can't you see the evidence in the video game?

4 Super Mario Bros:The Lost Levels is known as the Japanese version of Super Mario Bros 2.

Because the Original Super Mario Bros. 2 was deemed too difficult for American gamers Japan released an existing game Doki Doki Panic and replaced the whole cast with Mario Characters. - egnomac

5 When Mario was Jumpman, he abused apes.

We all know that.. Plus he didn't abuse DK, he captured him as revenge for kidnapping Pauline.

Here's some proof.
1. Donkey Kong Circus-Mario makes DK perform tricks.
2. Donkey Kong-Mario must rescue Pauline from DK.
3. Donkey Kong Jr. -Mario puts DK in a cage & DK Jr. is the hero.
There you go. Mario used to be an ape abuser. PETA must have been blowing a cartridge.

6 Mario makes a cameo appearance in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 & 3.

Have you ever thought of Mario crossing over with Call of Duty? Well, there you go! Mario appears in Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 2 & 3.

7 Mario has to collect coins in a Game & Watch Gallery minigame called Octopus.

How much money does he need to collect for Princess Peach? Does Peach need that many coins? She won't let Mario back on the boat until he gets more money.

8 In Wario Land:Super Mario Land 3, Mario comes flying in a helicopter & takes the giant golden statue of Peach.

How does Wario feel about that? Does it look like he cares? Nope! Wario has a genie that will grant him any wish as long as he has enough money. Mario can keep the statue.

9 He used to be bad

In all games that he appeared in prior to Super Mario bros, he was bad. Save for Donkey Kong - HeavyDonkeyKong

Wrong! He Started in Donkey Kong as a Hero Then, in Donkey Kong Jr. He was the Bad guy.

10 His 1st time being voiced by Charles Martinet was really in Mario's FUNdamentals

The Contenders
