This is a complete list of characters who have appeared in Super Mario Brothers in order of appearance.



18-Volt is a major human character in the WarioWare series. He is a great friend of 9-Volt and shares his love in video games with him. 18-Volt debuts in WarioWare: Twisted! where he becomes a new student at Diamond Elementary.

4.1 and 4.2

4.1 and 4.2 are Mona's two anthropomorphic, wolf-like pets who debut in WarioWare: Touched!. They only appear during Mona's story. When Vanessa sics The Dinosaurs in their hawk-like plane on Mona when she travels to the Hawt House, 4.1 and 4.2 steal Art from Mona's van. Pizza Joe comes in, along with her three other animals to reclaim him. Unfortunately, Mona's animals utterly fail. Joe then distracts The Dinosaurs long enough for them to come in and use their soccer ball launcher on the The Dinosaurs' plane. Unfortunately, even 4.1 and 4.2 are unable to rescue Art from The Dinosaurs.


5-Volt is 9-Volt's mother and makes a few appearances in the WarioWare series. She is never fully seen, but judging from what is seen of her, she is a human like her son. 5-Volt lives along with 9-Volt and presumably his pet Fronk in a house in Diamond City.

5-Volt debuts in WarioWare: Twisted!, where she shouts at 9-Volt to go to bed since he is playing with 18-Volt all day. 5-Volt is seen only from behind and from the knees down. After 9-Volt has gone to bed, he still furtively plays with his Game Boy Advance SP under the bedspread, but she catches him when she opens his room's door a second time. 5-Volt's silhouette is seen in the doorway.

5-Volt is seen again in WarioWare: Touched! as a silhouette in the Game Over screen of 9-Volt and 18-Volt's stage. She watches her son and his friend eating.


9-Volt is a major human character in the WarioWare series. He is a Nintendo fanboy, collects everything about this company, and loves to play video games. 9-Volt lives with his mother, 5-Volt and his pet Fronk in their house in Diamond City and attends Diamond Elementary. He debuts in WarioWare, Inc.: Minigame Mania as one of Wario's friends who helps him produce microgames.

Since WarioWare: Twisted!, 9-Volt always stars together with 18-Volt in the WarioWare series, who becomes one of his best friends in this game.


A. Coz

A. Coz is a character in the Game Boy Color version of Mario Tennis. Unlike his partner, B. Coz, he is a speedy player and can return almost any ball. In Singles, the player faces A. Coz in the final round of the Island Open. Like the player, it's his first time in the tournament. In Mario Power Tennis, which takes place several years later, he and B. Coz are revealed to be coaches at Factory. Their younger brother, Willy, is the player's final opponent in the Island Open.


Ackpows are sphinx-hat wearing servants working for Mimi in Super Paper Mario. They are featured in Chapter 2-3 inside Merlee's Mansion. Ackpows' roles are to make sure all of the other servants are working and pay them with Rubees after they're done. Also, if Princess Peach glides to the door above the level start, she can find a Question Block containing a Mushroom. Every time Mario or her jump under the Question Block, they have to pay ten Rubees to the Ackpow watching it. According to Tippi, they act like they're all important, but in reality, they're in debt to Mimi just like every other servant. This is very similar to the system of work the Egyptians used. Their style of dress also seems to reference the Egyptians as well. After Mimi is defeated, the Ackpows are released from servitude. This also means that the previously guarded Question Block will release unlimited Mushrooms for free.

Admiral Bobbery

Admiral Bobbery (usually just referred to as Bobbery) is a Bob-omb who is Mario's sixth partner in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. His wife Scarlette, a female Bob-omb, died of a mysterious illness prior to the events of the game.


Advisors are similar to Princess Peach's Toads. They serve Queen Bean in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. Advisors are Beanish and they're numerous within Beanbean Castle. During the events of the game, they're captured by Cackletta and Fawful and placed in the Beanbean Castle Sewers. In the intro of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Cackletta's follower, Fawful is disguised as an Advisor.

Axem Rangers

The Axem Rangers are teenage members of the Smithy Gang and appear in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. There are five Axem Rangers, each with their own distinct traits and abilities. However, all five of them wield a small axe in combat. Additionally, the Axem Rangers have their own battleship, the aptly named Blade. Axem Red is the leader of the group.


Baby Bowser

Baby Bowser (called Prince Bowser by his minions) is a recurring villain in the Yoshi series. He was designed to be the infant form of Bowser. Although not related to him, Kamek is mainly responsible for his child rearing. Baby Bowser looks similar to his adult form's eighth child, Bowser Jr.. The only difference between the two is that Bowser Jr. has a painting on his bib, while Baby Bowser's is blank, or doesn't have one at all.

Baby Daisy

Baby Daisy is a human character in the Mario series created to be the toddler counterpart of Princess Daisy. Her first appearance is in Mario Kart Wii as a playable character, whose debut is similar to that of Toadette in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. Most recently, Baby Daisy made another appearance in Mario Super Sluggers, along with other baby characters such as Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Peach, and Baby Donkey Kong.

Although Baby Daisy has appeared in only two installments for the Mario series overall, she has established connections to other baby characters like Baby Peach and even Baby Luigi.

Baby Luigi

Baby Luigi is the infant form of Luigi. In the Yoshi series, he is kidnapped several times by Baby Bowser and Kamek. In these games, Baby Mario, along with Yoshi have rescued Baby Luigi a few times. Besides the Yoshi series, he has appeared in several spin-off titles such as the Mario Kart series. Charles Martinet voices Baby Luigi, just like his older self.

Baby Mario

Baby Mario is a major character in the Yoshi series of video games, created to be Mario as an infant. Baby Mario is often rescuing Baby Luigi, who is carried off by Kamek, as seen in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. Since then, he has appeared in two other games in the Yoshi series and alongside his older self in several sports spin-off games. Despite being a baby, he is capable of playing various sports, driving karts, and even battling enemies (as shown in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time).

Baby Peach

Baby Peach is a minor character in the Mario series designed to be the toddler counterpart of Princess Peach. Since then, she has become a recurring character in spinoff installments alongside Baby Daisy, much like Baby Mario and Baby Luigi did before them.

Battle T.

Battle T. is a Toad in Mario Party 2 and Mario Party 3. In Mario Party 2 (where he had no name yet) he is the host of the Mini-Game Stadium in the Mini-Game Land. In Mario Party 3, Battle T. is the guide in Battle T's Battle Room. He has a normally white cap with mint green spots and orange shirt. The orange shirt of Battle T. has an orange Mushroom on it.


Beezos, also known as Shy Aways in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, are a sub-species of Shy Guys that first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 2. This sub-species appears to use tridents as weapons. Beezos also have insect like wings on their back, which allow them to fly.


Belltop is a magical bell who bears the semblance of a wind-up Toad in Mario Party 3. He was brought to life by the faux Millenium Star's magic. He inhabits all of the Duel Boards and doles out coins to the players skilled enough to deserve them. Whenever a player passes Belltop, it will start counting down from five to zero. Every time the players passes it, the numbers will decrease to a lower number. Once Belltop's hat reaches zero, it will bang its head with drum sticks and blow the whistle to signify the beginning of a duel mini-game. Once the duel mini-game is complete, its head will return to five. He always carries a whistle in his mouth and blows it to stir up attentiveness.


Belome is a strange four-eyed beast and the guardian of Kero Sewers. He usually sleeps all day and night, until awakened by a traveler seeking passage through the sewers. Unfortunately, Belome's source of food are these very travelers. Since he lives in darkness, Belome has grown four eyes to help him see. Belome also controls the water level of Kero Sewers with a ! Switch located in his chambers. When released, the ! switch activates a floodgate that allows water from Midas River to flow through the sewers.

Additionally, Belome also makes his home in a golden, underground shrine built in his honor, Belome Temple, located at Land's End. Although he works independently, Belome may have control over the various monsters residing in Kero Sewers and Belome Temple.

Big Bad Wolf

The Big Bad Wolf, or the just simply the Wolf, is a villainous, yet somewhat refined anthropomorphic wolf, who lives in the Mushroom Woods. Although he will go to any length to devour a defenseless human, the Big Bad Wolf works alone, and refuses to share or cooperate with any other predators. The Big Bad Wolf is shown to have several spare winter coats, which are actually wolf skins. Whether the Big Bad Wolf wears them over or in place of his natural skin is unknown.

Big Bob-omb

Big Bob-omb, sometimes called King Bob-omb due to his crown, is the king of the Bob-ombs. He's the first boss who is fought in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. Guarding the Power Star, which Bowser entrusted him with, he will not give it up without a fight. Interestingly, he makes many more appearances in Mario games.

Big Boo

Big Boos, also called Atomic Boos or Mega Boos, are a sub-species of Boo. Usually they resemble and behave similarly to normal Boos, except that they are larger.

Big Top

Big Top is MC Ballyhoo's hat, and serves as his co-host in the Wii game Mario Party 8. Big Top not only has the ability of speech, but is also his own separate entity. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, he shares a trophy with Ballyhoo.


Bingo is a Mushroom inhabitant of the island of Waki-Waki, the leader of which, Scooter, he appears to be friends with.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Too Hot to Handle", Bingo aids Scooter in his attempt to throw Princess Toadstool into the volcano of Waki-Waki, in an attempt to appease the Fire God (in actuality, King Koopa, who had disguised himself as the Fire God) who had ordered Princess Toadstool to be thrown into the volcano at sundown, under threat of destroying Waki-Waki.

It was only when he and Scooter were about to throw Princess Toadstool into the volcano that Bingo remembered that the Fire God had ordered them to throw Princess Toadstool into the volcano at sundown and subsequently reminded Scooter of this; not wanting to disobey the Fire God and make him angrier, Scooter and Bingo decided to simply wait until sundown to throw Princess Toadstool into the volcano, which greatly annoyed King Koopa. Eventually getting an idea, King Koopa told Scooter and Bingo through a microphone that it was sundown, tricking the gullible Scooter and Bingo into throwing Princess Toadstool into the mouth of the volcano, despite Mario, Luigi and Toad's protestation.

Later, after defeating King Koopa and Fryguy, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool revealed to Scooter and Bingo, as well as the rest of Waki-Waki's inhabitants that they had been deceived. Apparently forgiven by Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool for his actions, Bingo appeared at the spaghetti luau that was thrown in their honor by the real Fire God of Waki-Waki, who was freed from his imprisonment by King Koopa and Fryguy.


Birdo (Japanese: キャサリン Kyasarin) is a recurring character in the Mario series. In fact, there have been multiple characters known as "Birdo," similar to the multiple Yoshis that have appeared throughout history. The concept of a Birdo character was not solidified until the same pink Birdo began appearing in various spin-off titles. The central Birdo character (that appears in the Mario Kart series, the Mario Party series and the various sports titles) wears a red bow and a diamond ring. She also has some sort of relationship with Yoshi, as they are the automatic partners in various competitions.


Bloopers (also known as Bloobers) are squid-like creatures that are found in the ocean. They made their first appearance in Super Mario Bros., and various kinds of them have appeared in most Mario games since, normally as enemies. Mario Party 8 was the first game to feature a Blooper as a playable character. Bloopers come in different sizes and colors, though the original variety shown in Super Mario Bros. is white and roughly the size of a Koopa Troopa. They possess varying numbers of tentacles (ranging from four to up to ten visible limbs) of various lengths, which help them move and are in some of their appearances used directly to attack the player. As shown in some games, like the Mario Kart series, Bloopers can survive in and out of the water.


Bob-ombs, also known as Bomb-Ombs, are living, moving mechanical bombs with eyes and have a wind-up in the back. They are generic enemies who first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 2, and have appeared in nearly every Mario game since then. Their appearance, intelligence, and status in relation to Mario differ widely from game to game. They are usually either a blueish or blackish color, but some variations are pink or red. They will also flash red and sometimes make beeping sounds if they are about to explode.

They should not be confused with Bombs, the non-living explosives that have been faded out of the Mario series in favor of Bob-ombs.


Boos (originally known as "Boo" Diddley) are common ghost-enemies in the Mario series that first appear in Super Mario Bros. 3. They are a type of white spherical ghost with menacing and constantly open mouths. They are known for their large tongues and small "arms" of some sort. However, the most distinctive characteristic of the Boos is their shy personality where they cover their faces when someone looks them directly at the face but will uncover their faces once the subject turned around. Goombario's tattle for the Boo Igor in Paper Mario states: "He probably was a merchant before he became a Boo," implying that current Boos may have once been living beings. It is revealed in Super Mario Galaxy that they speak in Booish.

Boom Boom

Boom Boom (sometimes stylized as BOOM-BOOM) is a henchman of Bowser. He is an antagonist in the Mario series. Boom Boom first debuted in Super Mario Bros. 3. He is a boss that Mario or Luigi fights in fortresses, before the player fights a Koopaling in an airship. Boom Boom then later made his appearance in Super Mario 3D Land, as one of the game's main antagonists again who often appears in airships, sometime with his partner Pom Pom.


Boomer is an honorable sword fighter and a member of the Smithy Gang in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. After Smithy's forces occupied Bowser's Keep, Boomer is placed in charge of the new base.

After Mario fights his way past Smithy's minions, Boomer challenges Mario's party to a duel on chandeliers, the same chandeliers Mario fought Bowser at the beginning of the game. In battle, Boomer wields a katana, and has the ability to power up his defense and offense. After being defeated, an injured Boomer will sever the rope holding the chandelier he is on and plummet to the ground, allowing Mario and his party to pass unhindered to the giant sword Exor.


Booster, also known as Booster the Seventh, is a character from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars who lives in Booster Tower with three Snifits. He is of the seventh and current generation of Boosters. Despite his wealth, Booster would rather have fun and spend his days playing with his Snifits and others he invites to his tower. Unfortunately for potential playmates, Booster appears to be quite eccentric to the point of insanity. While many of his antics can be dangerous to others, he for the most part does not mean any harm.


Boshi is a blue Yoshi with an attitude. He was also the rival of Yoshi. Boshi is a loner and wears sunglasses and a spiked collar around his neck. He (along with many other Yoshis) lives on Yo'ster Isle, home of the famous Mushroom Derby races.

One fateful day, Boshi defeats all the other Yoshis in a race and becomes the champion of the Mushroom Derby. Boshi then declares himself boss of the Yoshis. Under his reign, the races of the island are canceled. In fact, the only one allowed to use the racetrack is Boshi himself. Although the other Yoshis disliked Boshi's rule, they felt obligated to obey the champion of the derby.

During the events of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Mario travels to Yo'ster Isle via the Pipe Vault. Once there, Mario meets up with his old friend Yoshi. The green Yoshi delivers the bad news of Boshi's reign, and Mario decides to help free the island. Fortunately, Yoshi recognizes that Boshi has a weakness for Yoshi Cookies. Yoshi asks a friend to loan him some cookies and Yoshi and Mario confront the boss of the island. If Yoshi can win a race against Boshi, then he will become the new champion of the Mushroom Derby (as such, Boshi will lose his authority). Boshi, who would never decline a wager with Yoshi Cookies on the line, agrees to a race.

During the race, Mario rides on Yoshi's back, helping his old friend defeat Boshi. To beat the blue Yoshi to the finish line, Yoshi has to move to the beat of the derby's music. As the music plays, the player must alternate between A and B with the music's tempo. If the player presses the buttons too fast, Yoshi will not move. Unfortunately, as the song plays, the beat may stop or change. However, the player must continue pushing the buttons to the original beat, not the new beat. Additionally, if Mario has any additional Yoshi cookies, he can feed them to Yoshi, giving the green dinosaur a boost of speed.

Ultimately, the race is close but Yoshi proves to be the victor and becomes the champion of the Mushroom Derby. The other Yoshis congratulate the champion and demand that he become the new boss of the island. Yoshi, as humble as ever, declines the offer, stating that the races should be free for everyone to participate in, not controlled by a boss. Yoshi's words even reform Boshi, who agrees to participate in fair competition.

Boshi, ever the loner, still likes to stick to himself, but he has learned to enjoy the spirit of competition. Proving he is still a good runner, Boshi manages to win a race every once and a while; however, he is not the dominant racer he made himself out to be.

The ending cinematic of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars seemed to show that Boshi had befriended the crocodile thief Croco after the latter had apparently moved to Yo'ster Isle.


King Bowser Koopa (Japanese 大魔王クッパ Daimaō Kuppa "Great Demon King Koopa", in English also Lord Bowser, King Koopa commonly in other media) is the main antagonist of the Mario series, the supreme leader of the Koopa Troop, King of the Koopas, and the arch-nemesis of Mario. He has repeatedly kidnapped or attempted to kidnap Princess Peach and take over the Mushroom Kingdom. He has on other occasions attempted to conquer the entire Mushroom World, as well as the entire universe.

Since his debut, Bowser has been in nearly every Mario game, including the main series, spin-offs, and crossovers. Besides being a primary villain, Bowser has at times played an anti-villain in all of the Mario RPGs, with the exception of Paper Mario.

Bowser Jr.

Bowser Jr. (sometimes written as Bowser Junior) is Bowser's eighth and youngest child. He is the Koopa King's favorite offspring and the heir to the throne, outranking his seven older siblings. Bowser Jr. first appeared in Super Mario Sunshine and has helped Bowser kidnap Princess Peach and battle the Mario Bros. in many subsequent games. Bowser Jr. wants nothing more than to do his father's evil will, and Bowser's rarely seen emotional side is often brought out by his interactions with his son.


Bowyer is one of Smithy's lieutenants in the game Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Bowyer resembles a bow, and attacks by firing his minions (called Aeroes) at his opponents. His name comes from "bowyer", a person who makes or sells bows to be used for archery. Along with Mack, the Axem Rangers, and Yaridovich, Bowyer was made like a weapon, for Bowyer, a bow.

Bowyer was ordered by Smithy to prepare Rose Town for a military occupation. As such, Bowyer set up camp in the heart of the Forest Maze and began firing poison-tipped arrows at Rose Town. When a person is hit with an arrow, they will become paralyzed and remain frozen like statues. His Aero minions found the second Star Piece in the forest.

When Bowyer gets the Star Piece, he is confronted by a strange, blue garbed warrior named Geno. At the same time, Mario and Mallow arrive to stop Bowyer, the source of the arrows plaguing Rose Town. As a result, the three warriors team up to battle the maniacal monster.

While Bowyer's main attack is firing arrows, the monster is also a master of lightning magic (much like Mallow). Additionally, Bowyer has one of the cleverest tactics in the game: he can disable buttons on the player's controllers, meaning that Mario and his allies will be prevented from using regular attacks, special attacks, or items until another button is disabled. Ultimately, Mario, Mallow, and Geno defeat the mechanical monstrosity and recover the second Star Piece.

Later, Mario, Mallow, Bowser, Geno, and Princess Toadstool encountered several mass-produced Bowyer copies in Smithy's Factory.


Brighton is a character who appears like a sun, who gets into a fight with the moon, Twila, in the game Mario Party 6. He was the one who started the feud by asking Twila, "Who's more impressive? You or me?" He refers himself to be "cooler" than Twila. Brighton also controls the board for three turns and switches off with Twila after the three turns are up. However, in Clockwork Castle, a player who lands on the Green Space at the top of the board has a 50/50 chance to change day to night instantly.

Once all pages in the Miracle Book are bought, Brighton and Twila see how much work everyone has done to fill the Star Bank. They both make up and promise to get along. As an award for their hard work, the sun and moon scatter the Stars across the sky, being seen miles away. Thus, he ended his feud with Twila. He also hosts Speak Up, Mic Mode, and Solo Mode and appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a sticker.

Brutius Maximus Grounchimus

Brutius Maximus Grouchimus is an overly-muscular gladiator who works at a colosseum in the Linguine Empire as it's guardian.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "The Great Gladiator Gig", Brutius Maximus Grouchimus is the one to welcome Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool to the Linguine Empire at the entrance to the empire's colosseum. Brutius, after greeting Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, had them follow them into the colosseum to the orphan's benefit spaghetti dinner they were promised.

It was on the way to this dinner that Brutius mentions that the benefit dinner may be canceled; a shocked Mario proceeds to ask Brutius why the dinner would be canceled. Brutius tells Mario that the catacombs of the colosseum have a plumbing problem, that’s why. Mario, not wanting to miss the benefit dinner and spaghetti, promises Brutius that he and Luigi could fix whatever plumbing problem happening.

Hearing this, Brutius calls several Koopa Troopas into attendance and tells Mario and Luigi to wait where they are while he and the Koopa Troopas escorted Princess Toadstool and Toad through the colosseum and to the Linguine Empire's emperor, who was revealed to be King Koopa, or "Emperor Augustus Septemberus Octoberus Koopa".

After introducing Princess Toadstool and Toad to the emperor and having them captured, Brutius proceeded to lead Mario and Luigi to the "plumbing problem" in the colosseum catacombs. Leading Mario and Luigi to a small corridor, Brutius suddenly calls upon several Koopa Troopas to capture them.

Mario and Luigi manage to evade capture though by commandeering a horse and chariot to escape Brutius and his Koopa Troopa henchmen, knocking them aside in the process. Brutius, in frustration, grabs to Koopa Troopas and throws them at Mario and Luigi.

Fortunately, Mario and Luigi stop these shells, unfortunately, their horse refuses to pull their chariot further, Mario having used the horses’ oats to stop the pursuing shells. Despite not having a horse or chariot anymore, Mario and Luigi manage to run from and escape Brutius and his Koopa Troopas by bursting through a door.

Later, Emperor Augustus Septemberus Octoberus Koopa is forced out of the Linguine Empire. Brutius, having seemingly given-up his evil ways, was shown to be the spaghetti cook at Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool's benefit spaghetti dinner.


Bud is a fictional Real World boy who makes one appearance in the episode "Mush-Rumors" in the TV series, The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3. He is the son of Norman, whom is driving his family, Missy and Bud and Missy's mother to an amusement park, called Wild Waldo's One-of-a-Kind Amusement Park. The family accidentally drives into a Warp Zone, which leads them to the Mushroom World.

When Norman says that the scenery turned weird, Bud exclaims that it is cool, while Missy exclaims that it is freaky. After Norman drives into a wall of Blocks, Bud sarcastically remarks, "Nice going Dad." Norman then crashes into another wall of Blocks, which nearly totals the car. This causes tension in a Mushroomer, who witnessed the entire event, and goes screaming off to the Mushroom World that the "aliens" have arrived.

Right before Mario and Luigi inspects the crash, Bud suggests that they are in Wild Waldo's One-of-a-Kind Amusement Park. Mario and Luigi then save the family from King Koopa's Doomship by throwing the car on an inflatable raft. After the Doomship starts firing Bullet Bills and Bob-ombs, Bud remarks, "This is the best amusement park we have ever been to." Mario and Luigi then protects the station wagon, and the Doomship afterward takes the station wagon by a magnet.

While the rest of the family is frightened by King Koopa inside his castle, Bud remarks by asking what is going on and that the green geezer is very "bizotic." Kooky Von Koopa then uses his Transmutational Brainwave Analyzer in his lab on the family. The Mario Bros. then rescue the family and sends them home via Warp Zone.

Bud and Missy's mother

Bud and Missy's mother (also can be known as Norman's Wife), is the mother, as the name implies, of Bud and Missy. She is the only member of Norman's family that does not have a given name. She appears in one episode in the TV show, "Mush-Rumors", of The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3.

Bud and Missy's mother usually calms the children down when they are in exciting situations, including the part where the children excitedly asks if they are at Wild Waldo's One-of-a-Kind Amusement Park. When Norman's family accidentally drives into a Warp Zone that leads them into the Mushroom Kingdom, she tells the kids that they shouldn't be frightened and she thinks that Norman knows exactly where he is going and that he is going to a gas station to ask directions. After crashing into two walls and setting off a commotion about a wild rumor about aliens, the family's car gets nearly totaled.

The Doomship soon attacks the "alien invaders" only to have Mario and Luigi save the family. The Doomship then brings the station wagon via magnet to Kastle Koopa. Bud and Missy's mother gets frightened and she says to King Koopa, "Are you Wild Waldo? Because if you are, this is no way to run an amusement park." Before the family can object, Kooky Von Koopa takes the family to his lab to use his new Transmutational Brainwave Analyzer.

After Kooky gets his results, Mario and Luigi breaks in and saves the family from King Koopa's plan. Mario and Luigi then direct the family back into the car, which Bud and Missy's mother thanks, and Norman drives the family back into the Real World where they came from.


Bundt is a living wedding cake found in the game Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. The cake is the creation of Chef Torte and his apprentice. A masterpiece of culinary perfection, Bundt is so outstanding, it actually came to life.

The cake was initially ordered by Booster for his wedding to Toadstool. Chef Torte (with help from his apprentice) outdid himself and created the world's greatest wedding cake, Bundt. However, Mario interrupted the wedding and rescued Toadstool. When Chef Torte realized the wedding is ruined, the Koopa cook became irate. He slaved for hours creating the cake, and now the wedding for which it is to be admired and eaten is destroyed.

Enraged, Chef Torte attacks Mario and his allies. However, Bundt starts to move. Torte's apprentice told his master this, but Torte ignores his apprentice's warnings. Then the cake moves a second time, causing Torte and his apprentice to run for their lives. However, Mario stayed to fight the monster cake. To defeat the cake, Mario has to blow out all five of Bundt's candles. Although the cake wields impressive magical abilities, Mario and company were able to destroy Bundt. However, the defeat of Bundt was only half the fight. Once Bundt was defeated, the top layers of cake disappeared, leaving only the base layer called Raspberry, now able to confront Mario for the rest of the battle.


Bunsen is a robot who inhabits the city of Robo Land. She is a close friend of Dr. Nerdnick, and may even be his own creation, although her origin was never really explained. Bunsen appears to have some sort of artificial intelligence, as she is capable of having conversations with other characters and can think for herself.

Her name shares with a contraption used in chemical experiments called the Bunsen burner named after Robert Bunsen.


Butterfingers is an inhabitant of the Amazon Jungle and the assistant of the famous and powerful witch doctor Dr. Sheldon.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Jungle Fever", Butterfingers, while aiding Dr. Sheldon in helping some of his Mushroom Person patients, bore witness to his kidnapping by King Koopa and his Shy Guy minions.

After Dr. Sheldon's kidnapping by King Koopa, Butterfingers was employed by Princess Toadstool to help her create a No-Itch Potion, which could be used on Mario, Luigi and Toad, who were suffering from extreme itchiness due to being doused in King Koopa's Koopa Strength Itching Powder. At first happy to help Princess Toadstool, Butterfingers eventually loses faith in herself when she accidentally created a duplication potion instead of a No-Itch Potion.

With Butterfingers unable to help Mario, Luigi and Toad, Princess Toadstool decided to go save Dr. Sheldon herself from King Koopa, much to Butterfingers protestation.

Later, after Princess Toadstool had traveled some distance through the Amazon Jungle, she was met with Butterfingers, who had decided to help Princess Toadstool in rescuing Dr. Sheldon from King Koopa. After being thanked by Princess Toadstool for deciding to help her, Butterfingers pointed-out a large amount of smoke emanating from a nearby stone structure, which she surmized was being created by Dr. Sheldon.

Climbing the stone structure, Princess Toadstool and Butterfingers saw Dr. Sheldon in the midst of creating a potion for King Koopa, willingly and without protestation. Shocked at what Dr. Sheldon was doing, Butterfinger, along with Princess Toadstool, were scared from their hiding place behind a pillar by a Cobrat, allowing King Koopa to see them.

As King Koopa has his Shy Guy minions restrain Princess Toadstool, Butterfingers begins to berate Dr. Sheldon, who is preparing to douse Princess Toadstool in a potion that will turn her to stone, saying that she officially resigns as his assistant. Ignoring Butterfingers, Dr. Sheldon, grabbing a bucket full of potion, threw it at Princess Toadstool, though not before telling her to duck.

Doing as Dr. Sheldon commanded, Princess Toadstool managed to bend over before Dr. Sheldon's potion hit her, allowing it to hit King Koopa instead. After King Koopa is doused in Dr. Sheldon's potion, Butterfingers, Princess Toadstool and King Koopa's Shy Guy henchmen can only watch in shock as King Koopa falls to the ground and begins to scratch himself crazily, proclaiming he's incredibly itchy; as King Koopa spasms on the ground, both Butterfingers and Princess Toadstool summarize that Dr. Sheldon had never joined King Koopa, he had been planning to dunk his Industrial Strength Itching Potion on him.

With King Koopa defeated, Dr. Sheldon, Butterfingers and Princess Toadstool returned to the village in the Amazon Jungle; Butterfingers was last seen watching as Dr. Sheldon gave his, in actuality, fake antidote to Mario, Luigi and Toad to cure their itchiness, spaghetti.


Captain Abidab

Captain Abidab is a self-described sailor and harpooner who inhabits the port town of Happy Harbor; she is also the only human shown to live there, the rest of its inhabitants being Mushroom People.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "20,000 Koopas Under the Sea", Captain Abidab appeared in the middle of a rally being held by King Koopa, who claimed he could get rid of a sea monster that was terrorizing Happy Harbor. Appearing after King Koopa had sarcastically asked Mario and Princess Toadstool, who had revealed King Koopa to be evil, how they would get rid of the sea monster , Captain Abidab claimed that she could get rid of the sea monster, which King Koopa scoffed at before leaving with his two Bloober minions, Captain Abidab, after everyone else ran away, recruited Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool as her crew.

Later, Captain Abidab introduced Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool to her ship, the Peapod. Captain Abidab began to show doubt at Mario, Luigi and Toad's effectiveness as her crew, as the three of them proved highly incompetent as sailors; Captain Abidab was reassured of Mario, Luigi and Toad's effectiveness by Princess Toadstool, who showed some doubt at her own words.

When the search for the sea monster proved fruitless after a while, Captain Abidab decided to expand the search for it and go underwater, much to Luigi's chagrin. After putting on a diving helmet and giving Mario a plunger-loaded harpoon gun, Captain Abidab dived underwater, with Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool following her. While walking on the ocean floor, Captain Abidab, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool were ambushed by the sea monster, which Mario managed to hit with a plunger launched from his harpoon gun. Grabbing on to the rope dangling from this plunger, Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool were pulled by the sea monster for a brief amount of time, before being devoured by it, much to Toad and Captain Abidab's horror. When the sea monster began to approach them, Captain Abidab and Toad managed to escape it's sight by hiding in an underwater pit; after the sea monster passed by them, Captain Abidab and Toad followed it to the surface, where they saw it bash into the Peapod before submerging underwater.

Later, as Toad bailed water from the Peapod, which Captain Abidab steered, he saw a message in a bottle, which he reeled in and gave to Captain Abidab. Reading this note, Captain Abidab told Toad that it was from Mario, who claimed Koopa Nemo was going to attack Happy Harbor with a submarine. After reading this note, Captain Abidab set sail for a shortcut to Happy Harbor. By the time Toad and Captain Abidab reached Happy Harbor, Koopa Nemo had already begun to attack the ships there with his Koopilus submarine, which was the sea monster. Using a makeshift catapult, Captain Abidab managed to launch Toad into the Koopilus's mouth, hoping that Toad could find Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool in the giant submarine.

After the Koopilus was destroyed and Koopa Nemo was defeated, Captain Abidab was among the people who cheered for Mario and Luigi for them having saved Happy Harbor.

Captain Clump

Captain Clump is a pirate who inhabits Pirate World, the waters of which, he sails on his ship; Captain Clump seems to a mixture of several pirate stereotypes, having an eyepatch, a hook in place of a hand a peg leg which is quite large in size and a parrot named Patches.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Pirates of Koopa", Captain Clump, needing a new crew for his ship, hired Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool as his shipmates to help him sail through Pirate Waters. Sometime after hiring Mario, Luigi and Toad though, Captain Clump began to become increasingly irritated by them, saying the only reason he hired them to join his crew was because his original one had abandoned him, not wanting to sail with Blackbeard Koopa and his Koopa Pirate Pack on the prowl.

Soon after Captain Clump revealed that Blackbeard Koopa was sailing Pirate Waters to Mario, Luigi and Toad, his ship was enveloped by a thick, red haze. It was only after Mario cut a hole through this haze that Captain Clump noticed the ship of Blackbeard Koopa was nearby. Seeing that Captain Clump's ship was nearby and Captain Clump, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool were on it, Blackbeard Koopa ordered them to surrender. Disobeying Blackbeard Koopa's order, Captain Clump raised his sword in defiance and told Blackbeard Koopa he would never surrender to him. It was this defiance that caused Blackbeard Koopa to attack Captain Clump's ship with Bob-ombs and later invade it with his Koopa Pirate Pack.

Despite fighting quite well against the Koopa Pirate Pack, Captain Clump, as well as Mario, Luigi and Toad, were defeated and tied to the mast of Captain Clump's ship, while Princess Toadstool was kidnapped by Blackbeard Koopa. As his ship was left to sail, directionless, Captain Clump struggled in vain to escape the ropes tieing him, Mario, Luigi and Toad to his ship's mast, becoming annoyed by Luigi's optimistic singing in the process.

It was only when Luigi was splashed in the face by some water that Captain Clump realized that his ship was sinking, Blackbeard Koopa having drilled holes in the haul of it. It was only when Mario made an unsuccessful to jump free of the ropes that Luigi realized that by squirming, he, Mario, Toad and Captain Clump could move upwards on the mast they were tied to. After several minutes of wriggling up the mast, Captain Clump, along with Toad, Mario and Luigi, hit their heads on the crow's nest atop the ship's mast.

Luckily, Captain Clump, Mario, Luigi and Toad hitting their heads on the crow's nest awakened Patches, who had been flung into it during the battle against Blackbeard Koopa and his Koopa Pirate Pack and knocked unconscious. After hitting his head, Patches through a Starman to Mario, who used the powers it endowed him with to free himself, Captain Clump, Toad and Luigi free their restraints and to defeat the Trouters who had begun to circle Captain Clump's sinking ship. Now freed from their bonds, Captain Clump, Luigi and Toad managed to climb into the unsunken crow's nest of Captain Clump's completely submerged ship. Using Captain Clump's sword, Mario manages to cut the crow's nest free from the ship and use it as a boat to sail to Pirate's Port.

Sometime later, Captain Clump, using his telescope and acting as a lookout for Mario, informed Mario that they were approaching Pirate's Port in their makeshift, crow's nest boat. Soon after reaching Pirate's Port, Captain Clump and Toad managed to gain access Blackbeard Koopa's fortress after Mario and Luigi, disguised as pirates, gained permission to enter it from it's Koopa Troopa guards.

Once inside the fortress, Captain Clump and Toad were instructed to get near Princess Toadstool, who was being held in a cage, while they distracted Blackbeard Koopa and his Koopa Pirate Pack. As Toad freed Princess Toadstool, Captain Clump kept watch and when Blackbeard Koopa and his Koopa Pirate Pack discovered that Mario and Luigi were in their fortress, it was Captain Clump who yelled for them to run.

After being chased to Blackbeard Koopa's ship, Captain Clump aided Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool in battling the Koopa Pirate Pack on it; after being narrowly saved by Patches from a Bob-omb, Captain Clump helped Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad in tieing Blackbeard Koopa to the rigging of his ship, using that as a slingshot to finally vanquish Blackbeard Koopa from Pirate World.

Captain Goomba

Captain Goomba is an oversized Goomba in Mario Party 8. He appears at the end of Goomba's Booty Boardwalk and gives characters free Stars if they reach him. As his name implies, he is a captain of a ship. He also has a few Pirate Goombas.

In Star Battle, he still gives characters Stars, though they need fifty coins. In this mode, getting a Star is the key to winning the battle. However, if characters arrive with less than fifty coins, Captain Goomba sends them back to the start using a cannon.

Captain Goomba is the leader of a crew of Pirate Goombas, which are Goombas with green pirate bandannas. They appear on a Green Space. If a player lands on their Green space, the three Goombas will exclaim that "landlubbers" are not allowed to meet their captain and are only worthy to be cannon fodder. Upon shouting the above statement, the Pirate Goombas immediately surround the character, load him or her into a cannon, and blast the player back to start.

Cave Mushrooms

Cave Mushrooms are primitive Toads that reside in Caveman Land. The Cave Mushrooms are the equivalent to primitive Humans, also known as Cave People. Because of their relation to normal cave people, these mushrooms wear skin robes, and because of their relation to Toads, they wear mushroom hats.

Chain Chomp

Chain Chomps (or Chomps) are common enemies in the Mushroom World, first appearing in Super Mario Bros. 3. Chain Chomps bear a resemblance to a ball and chain. They are a strong, canine-like species with sharp teeth and commonly used as guard dogs in most games. The presence of ancient statues of them in the Dry Dry Ruins suggests that they have been used as such for centuries. Many Chomps in the Mario series have been part of the Koopa Troop, though a couple of them have been shown to be independent.


Cheepy, often referred to as Little Cheepy, is a character from The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "The Bird! The Bird!". He is depicted as a small, pink-colored Birdo wearing a scarf.

It is revealed in the episode that Cheepy's mother had lost him and was frantically searching for him, even employing the Missing Bird Bureau to aid her. Eventually, Cheepy's mother, being extremely near-sighted, mistakes Toad for Cheepy.

Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool discover that the real Cheepy is found to be frozen in a block of ice. Freeing the Birdo using his fireballs, (Super) Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool surmize that he is the missing Birdo. Eventually Toad is dropped from the sky during a botched flying lesson from Cheepy's mother, landing in the campsite of Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Cheepy, who Toad then returns to his mother.

In the beginning of the episode, Cheepy's mother, seeing Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool traveling through the Land of Ice, swoops downward and grabs Toad, mistaking him for her lost baby, Cheepy.

Flying to her home atop a tall mountain, she proceeded to drop a protesting Toad in a crib and begin to smother him with kisses, glad to have found her missing "baby". Ignoring Toad's claims that he's not her baby, Mother Birdo, after some difficulty, proceeded to answer a nearby ringing phone and told the caller, the Missing Bird Bureau, that she no longer needed them to search for Cheepy, as she had already found him. Hanging-up the phone, Mother Birdo attempted to give Toad more kisses and hugs as the as he frantically tried to run away.

Managing to eventually catch Toad, she proceeded to force-feed him milk from a bottle; forcing the bottle from his mouth, Toad tried to explain he wasn't Cheepy once again; ignoring Toad, Mother Birdo is suddenly reminded that its time for "Cheepy's" flying lessons by a nearby clock.

Grabbing Toad, she proceeded to fly through the air, attempting to reach 30 000 feet, with the plan of dropping Toad, expecting him to fly; eventually reaching the wanted altitude, she drops Toad, who manages to survive the fall by using his mushroom cap as a parachute.

Later, Cheepy's mother, after having the real Cheepy returned to her by Toad and Princess Toadstool, aids Mario and Luigi in their battle against King Koopa and his Koopa Troopa and Flurry minions by holding Mario and Toad in the air, as they dropped Turnip from a sack on King Koopa and his minions.

Having managed to drive King Koopa from the land, Cheepy's mother, still grateful to Toad, Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool for finding Cheepy, invites them to her home for some lunch. In the end, Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad flee from Mother Birdo and Cheepy's house after learning that their "lunch", were large, talking worms.

Crimewave Clyde

Crimewave Clyde is a large, muscular, and aggressive prisoner from the Real World who had been sentenced to jail for 12,423 years with no parole due to his extensive criminal record.

In The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Crimes R Us", Bowser and his Koopalings had traveled to Clyde's prison on the Doomship, where Bully Koopa abducted him. Under the request of Bowser, Clyde agreed to teach the Koopalings everything that he knew about crime, so that they could grow up to be hardcore criminals. Bowser also told Clyde that he could keep half of whatever was stolen in exchange, but he crossed his fingers behind his back when he said so.

Clyde's first lesson to the Koopalings was bank robbery. After they received a crash course from Clyde, the Koopalings raided the First Mushroom Bank, but were foiled by Mario and Luigi in the process, although they did manage to escape.

Realizing that the Koopalings failed lesson one, Clyde made some adjustments to his lesson plan, making sure that getting rid of the Mario Bros. was lesson two. The first step in this lesson was to have Cheatsy steal the lunch money from a Mushroom boy in Desert Land, who's cry for help traveled through a Warp Pipe and alerted the Mario Bros. The boy directed Mario and Luigi to a pipe, which trapped them in an underground maze where Clyde and Big Mouth locked them in with a Boom Boom.

Afterwards, claiming that he had taught the Koopalings everything he knew about crime, Clyde let them run amuck in the Mushroom Kingdom, where they stole whatever they chose to steal. However, Clyde was pushed too far when the Koopalings not only started stealing from each other, but his own pockets as well.

When Bowser proposed to have his Koopalings steal one billion Gold Coins from the Mushroom Kingdom Treasury, Clyde only agreed to help, just because half of the loot would be enough to relieve him from all the stress the Koopas were causing him. To Clyde's surprise, the Koopalings double-crossed him, and handcuffed a Bob-omb to his ankle, although he managed to extinguish the fuse before it blew up. Fed up with the Koopalings, Clyde knew he needed help.

Clyde broke into the maze that Mario and Luigi were trapped in, and begged them to get him back to the Real World. After offering to help them stop the Koopalings from robbing the Mushroom Kingdom Treasury, the Mario Bros. reluctantly agreed.

After the Koopalings invaded the Mushroom Kingdom Treasury and began packing up the loot, they were surprised to see Clyde with Mario and Luigi waiting for them behind a vaulted door. Before the Koopalings could react, Clyde and the Marios tied them up, and sent them up into the Doomship, along with a Bob-omb. After the Doomship had been partially blown away, the Koopas retreated, and Clyde felt proud of his actions.

However, the Mushroom Kingdom is not recognized by the United States government, which means that Clyde's heroism there could not be considered a case for clemency. As Clyde was still a prisoner in the Real World, Mario and Luigi were obliged to return him to his jail cell, which Clyde agrees to. Following his return to prison, he was then befriended by Mario and Luigi, who would pay him visits at the prison's visitor center. While the Mario Brothers consider Clyde's sentence onerous especially since he has reformed, Clyde notes that he will gladly serve his 12,423-year prison sentence with no parole compared to spending one more day with the Koopas.


Crocodiles are vicious reptiles that can be found on parts of Mushroom World. The Kremlings are a race of advanced crocodiles, but typical crocodiles have made a few appearances throughout the Mario series as well. They mainly appeared in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Crocodile Mario", where they were portrayed with voracious appetites, and inhabited Down Under Land.

In "Crocodile Mario", Kangaroo Koopa stole a Magic Statue from a town in Down Under Land that repelled crocodiles. Without the Magic Statue, the crocodiles were free to roam the town. The crocodiles came close to eating everyone there, almost eating the entire general store and the tree that everyone took refuge atop of in the process. Mario and Luigi eventually retrieved the Magic Statue and liberated the town from the crocodiles, who chose to pursue Kangaroo Koopa instead.

In Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, a species of fawfulized crocodiles called Crawfuls appeared in the game as enemies. They resemble bipedal crocodiles with large faces that have Fawful's signature glasses and toothy grin.


Cutter is a surfer-type character seen in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Reign Storm".

When Princess Toadstool got washed ashore while surfing on her vacation in Hawaii, she was helped up by Cutter, a surfer dude. Cutter also noticed Toad, whom he assumed was a weird kid wearing a funny sun hat, due to his small size and Mushroom cap.

Because Princess Toadstool needed to relax, she lets Cutter give her the time of her life in Hawaii, and together they surf, swim, windsail, waterski and hanglide. However, Cutter's influence starts to become too great, and Princess Toadstool isn't sure that she even wants to return home.

As Princess Toadstool gets better at surfing, Cutter tells her that she should enter an upcoming surfing contest. At the same time, Toad spots Kooky in the bushes, and informs Princess Toadstool that the Koopas are probably causing trouble back home.

Having to leave on short notice, Princess Toadstool confesses to Cutter that she's the princess of the Mushroom Kingdom, but Cutter can't believe what he's hearing. Before she leaves, Princess Toadstool tells Cutter that she one day hopes to make him feel as welcome in her world as he did in his. Toad also tells Cutter to not tell anyone else about their secret. Cutter agrees, because he wouldn't risk telling anyone about the "Mushroom Kingdom", "princesses" or "drainpipes".

Once Mario and Luigi arrived at Dealin' Delbert's cow lot, they were continually hassled by Dealin' Delbert to trade their cow for one of his cows, all of whom looked either old, sick or were generally just in bad shape.

After Mario and Luigi refused to sell their cow, wanting only to sell it, Dealin' Delbert decided to make them a special deal, giving them something special in exchange for their cow; it was eventually revealed that Dealin' Delbert had, in actuality, traded Mario and Luigi three small garbanzo beans for their cow. These Garbanzo beans were later revealed to be capable of growing into a gigantic beanstalk, though whether Dealin' Delbert knew these Garbanzo beans could do this is unknown.

Diddy Kong

Diddy Kong is Donkey Kong's buddy and companion who has gone on countless adventures with him. Diddy is a creation of the British company, Rare Ltd.; however, he has a Nintendo logo on his trademarked red hat, probably because Nintendo owned Rare and the rights to the Donkey Kong franchise at the time. The name 'Diddy' is a slang word used in some parts of northern England for 'small,' as Diddy is. Diddy has also gone on many adventures by himself and has even starred in his own racing game for the Nintendo 64 and later for the Nintendo DS.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Jungle Fever", Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad venture to the Amazon Jungle in search of Sheldon, who they believe can help them defeat the evil King Koopa.

Unfortunately, before Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, who were distracted by King Koopa and the Koopa Pack, could reach Sheldon's village, King Koopa and his Shy Guy minions reached it first. As Sheldon was in the process of checking several Mushroom Person patients with his assistant, Butterfingers, King Koopa had his Shy Guy's grab Sheldon, put him in a sack and run to King Koopa's base-of-operations in the Amazon Jungle.

Brought to King Koopa's camp atop a large, stone structure, Sheldon was forced by King Koopa to create him a potion that could turn Princess Toadstool to stone, under the threat of being fed to two starving Piranha Plants. Released from his sack prison, Sheldon, grabbing some supplies, began work on a potion.

After several long moments of watching Sheldon create a potion, King Koopa, becoming immpatient with Sheldon, began to accuse him of stalling the creation of his potion for time. Dissagreeing with King Koopa, Sheldon revealed his potion was ready, just as Princess Toadstool and Butterfingers, having found King Koopa's base due to the fumes cemmanating from Sheldon's potion.

Having his Shy Guy minions restrain Princess Toadstool, King Koopa proceeded to order Sheldon to douse her with his potion. Cheerfully obeying King Koopa, Sheldon, ignoring Butterfingers protestations and accusations of him being a traitor, threw a bucket full of his potion at Princess Toadstool, though not before telling her to duck.

Doing as Sheldon instructed, Princess Toadstool, as well as Butterfingers and King Koopa's Shy Guy henchmen, watched in shock as the potion, having missed Princess Toadstool, doused King Koopa; Being hit with Sheldon's potion, King Koopa proceeded to fall to the ground, scratching himself crazily, screaming of being unbearably itchy.

As King Koopa writhed and spasmed on the ground, Princess Toadstool and Butterfingers realized that Sheldon hadn't joined King Koopa and was conspiring against him the entire time he was captured. With King Koopa defeated, Princess Toadstool asked Sheldon if he could cure Mario, Luigi and Toad, who were unbelievabely itchy, due to being covered in King Koopa's Koopa Strength Itching Powder; hearing this, Sheldon agreed to help Princess Toadstool in curing Mario, Luigi and Toad.

Later, Sheldon, Butterfingers and Princess Toadstool having returned to Sheldon's village, unveiled the cure to King Koopa's Koopa Strength Itching Powder to Mario, Luigi and Toad, spaghetti. As Mario, Luigi and Toad ate this spaghetti antidote, Sheldon was asked by Princess Toadstool if the spaghetti would cure Mario, Luigi and Toad's itches; Sheldon replied to Princess Toadstool's question by saying that the spaghetti wouldn't cure Mario, Luigi or Toad's itches, but it would distract them to the point that they wouldn't notice their itches.

Dr. T. Garden

Dr. T. Garden is a famed scientist, one of the best in the world, and an inhabitant of the oriental city Sayonara; he is also the inventor of the powerful Super Sushi, which can make whoever eats it bigger and stronger.

Garden's latest and most powerful batch of Super Sushi, destroying Dr. T. Garden's laboratory, which was only recently rebuilt, in the process.

After a failed attempt to capture Koopzilla with a steel net, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool returned to Dr. T. Garden's laboratory, where they had him create a new batch of Super Sushi for Mario to eat. After Mario ate this Super Sushi, Dr. T. Garden, Toad, Luigi and Princess Toadstool fled from the rapidly crumbling laboratory, which was falling apart due to Mario growing through the roof of it. Eventually, as Mario and Koopzilla engaged in a titanic battle and in his shoddily rebuilt laboratory, Dr. T. Garden created an antidote to Super Sushi, Super Sushi Shrinker, which he gave to Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool in a large needle so they could administer it to Koopzilla and shrink him back to his normal size.

After Koopzilla is defeated and shrunk back to normal size, along with Mario, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool returned to Dr. T. Garden's laboratory, where they were thanked by Dr. T. Garden for driving Koopzilla out of Sayonara. As he thanked Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, Dr. T. Garden noticed Mario eat one of his inventions and he tried to warn Mario not to. Dr. T.

After learning that Yoshi knows Mario and Luigi, Duke allows Yoshi to join the DinoRiders; secretly though, the DinoRiders simply wanted to use Yoshi to get to the Mario Bros., who they planned to capture and sell to Bowser.

Manipulating Yoshi, the DinoRiders had the oblivious reptile commit several bad-deeds such as graffiti and "Stink Bob-ombing" a house before granting him "full membership" into the gang. Duke then had Yoshi tell Mario and Luigi to meet with the DinoRiders at the Tar Pit Milk Bar. Venturing to the bar, Mario and Luigi were captured by the DinoRiders, who set-off to Bowser's Neon Castle to turn the Bros. in.

While on their way to Neon Castle, the DinoRiders were ambushed by Yoshi and Princess Toadstool, who rescued Mario and Luigi from the DinoRiders. Stealing Lulu's motorcycle, Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and Princess Toadstool took-off, with the DinoRiders hot on their trail.

The DinoRiders were eventually defeated when, during a high-speed chase, Rockman was blasted into and deep-fried in a lava pit, while Duke and Lulu crashed into a wall.

Exor is used as an inter-dimensional gateway between Mario's dimension, home of the Mushroom Kingdom, and Smithy's dimension, where Smithy's Factory is located. Consequently, Exor can transport an infinite number of troops and weapons for the Smithy Gang, as they are held in a separate dimension, not in an enclosed space.

The iconic and recurring image of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is Exor embedded in Bowser's Keep.


Fire God

The Fire God (also referred to as the Big Kahuna) is a large, burly inhabitant of the island of Waki-Waki in Lava Land. As his name suggests, the Fire God is a deity, though what powers he may have are not shown.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Too Hot to Handle", Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool travel to Waki-Waki in search of the Fire God, who has promised to help them free the Mushroom Kingdom from King Koopa.

As is eventually revealed, the Fire God has been captured by King Koopa and Fryguy, who are keeping him imprisoned in a giant, snow- and ice-filled bottle. With the Fire God, who he eventually plans to throw into his Lava Machine, as his prisoner, King Koopa tricks the inhabitants of Waki-Waki into believing that he is the Fire God as a part of his plan to capture Princess Toadstool.

After King Koopa and Fryguy are defeated by Mario (and the Lava Machine destroyed), the Fire God, free from the giant, frozen bottle, sends a smoke signal to him, as well as the inhabitants of Waki-Waki. Interpreting the Fire God's smoke signal, Scooter, the leader of Waki-Waki, reveals that the Fire God wants to throw a spaghetti luau for Mario.

At this spaghetti luau, the Fire God acts as the spaghetti chef, using the chained and caged Fryguy to cook the spaghetti.

Flab Boys

The Flab Boys are two large, overweight rappers from the city of Rap Land. They look very similar, and there is a possibility that they may be brothers, but their relationship was never mentioned.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Bad Rap", Rappin' Koopa had taken over Rap Land by invading the castle, tying up King James, and playing a hypnotic theme through the speakers all over the city. The Flab Boys were uneffected, due to the fact that they were wearing earphones.

The Flab Boys soon meet up with Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad when they arrive in Rap Land, and give them the lowdown on what's happened. The Flab Boys then accompany them to the castle, where Princess Toadstool tries to sneak Toad in. When Princess Toadstool's cover is blown, the Flab Boys try to stop several Koopa Troopas by hurling records at them, but they fail. Mario attacks the Koopa Troopas with his plunger, but Princess Toadstool simply winds up in the arms of Rappin' Koopa.

Fortunately, Toad managed to rescue both Princess Toadstool and King James, and they met up with the Flab Boys and the Mario Bros. outside the castle. King James then decided that unplugging the Royal Plug was the only way to stop Rappin' Koopa's music. The Flab Boys and Luigi gave Mario a boost, allowing him to reach and unplug the cord, shutting off Rap Land's power.

The Flab Boys later assisted Mario and the others in a rapping duel, and managed to defeat all of Rappin' Koopa's Koopa Troopas by rolling down a hill and knocking into them. After Toad managed to trip Rappin' Koopa, the Flab Boys threatened to sit on him. Unfortuantely, Rappin' Koopa managed to get away through a Warp Zone.

After returning the castle, the Flab Boys offered to play the Mario Rap, which everyone danced to, as a celebration of Rappin' Koopa's defeat.

The Genie of Aladdin's Lamp is a powerful genie who inhabits said lamp. She is extremely cranky and obnoxious and appeared in the The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Mario's Magic Carpet".

In the episode, Mario and Luigi obtained Aladdin's Lamp from the treasures of Sultan Pasbah. They rubbed it, summoning the Genie, who had extreme difficulty escaping Aladdin's Lamp, which remained stuck on her foot.

After her summoning, the Genie was asked by Mario to save Princess Toadstool, who was about to be sold by Sultan Pasbah to King Koopa. Attempting to use a magic spell, the Genie only succeeded in creating a horrific stench and a black fog (a magic smell).

This smell and fog ended-up allowing King Koopa to successfully kidnap Princess Toadstool and speed her away on his flying carpet. Chasing after King Koopa, the Genie was asked by Mario to give him, Luigi and Toad the power of flight, so they could chase King Koopa. At first, the Genie refused to cast the flight spell, saying it would drain her power, eventually though, the Genie agreed after Mario offered to pay her a coin. Unfortunately, the spell simply launched Mario, Luigi and Toad directly upward through the air instead of allowing them to fly.

Later, the Genie traveled with Mario, Luigi and Toad on their recently purchased flying carpet, complaining the entire time. It was only after Princess Toadstool was rescued from the quicksand King Koopa had dumped her in that the Genie decided to abandon Mario. Re-entering Aladdin's Lamp, the Genie threw herself off Mario's magic carpet, only to land in the front seat of King Koopa's own flying carpet.

Exiting Aladdin's Lamp, the Genie proceeded to pester and annoy King Koopa, much to the amusement of Mario, Toad, Luigi and Princess Toadstool.

After Mario and Luigi stop Bowser and Kootie Pie from taking over Venice, the Gondolier takes the heroes for a gondola ride. He stops in front of two statues Mario and Luigi passed earlier, and explains that they were Marco Polo's Plumbers, whom the brothers resemble.


Goombas are one of the major species of Mushroom World and are among Mario and Luigi's most persistent foes. Since their first game appearance in Super Mario Bros. they have appeared as a common foe. Goombas resemble small, brown mushrooms and are a fungus-based species like Toads, Amanitas, Spooks, and Shroobs. Goombas are physically weak and are not much of a threat to Mario, since a single stomp usually defeats them, although a number of different Goomba sub-species have emerged throughout the years. The Goombas, as a collective race, used to be allied with the Mushroom Kingdom. However, many of the Goombas have turned traitorous and joined the Koopa Troop, an organization led by Bowser. While a vast majority of Goombas allied themselves with him, others became independent thieves or even formed peaceful Goomba communities.

Before they are devoured though, Mario and Luigi convince Harry and the other lion that they don't want to eat two mangy plumbers, as the "Kings of the Beasts", they should get royal meat, as in, Emperor Augustus Septemberus Octoberus Koopa.

Harry and his lion friend, after hearing this, agree not to eat Mario and Luigi; eventually, after Princess Toadstool and Toad are rescued from Emperor Augustus Septemberus Octoberus Koopa by Mario and Luigi and Emperor Koopa himself is dumped into the arena of his colosseum, Harry and the other lion advance on the fallen emperor.

Hercufleas is a large, powerful hero who inhabits the ancient city of Mythis, and an old friend of Toad's. He is based on Hercules (also known as Heracles) of Greek and Roman legend.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "The Fire of Hercufleas", Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, needing help to defeat the evil King Koopa, decided to ask Hercufleas for his assistance in overthrowing King Koopa. When Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool arrived at Hercufleas' home in Mythis, they discovered that Hercufleas, through overeating, had become incredibly obese.

Finding Hercufleas slumped in a chair, surrounded by donuts, Princess Toadstool began to doubt that Hercufleas could aid her in beating King Koopa. Ignoring Princess Toadstool's doubts, Toad greeted Hercufleas and learned from the dumpy hero that he didn't work as a hero anymore, instead, Hercufleas now worked as the guardian of the Great Balls of Fire.

After showing Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool the Great Balls of Fire, Hercufleas told them that he wouldn't be able to help them defeat King Koopa, saying he wasn't much of a hero anymore. As Toad tried to reassure Hercufleas, several Beezos, sent to steal the Great Balls of Fire for King Koopa, appeared. Seeing that these Beezos were trying to steal the Great Balls of Fire, Hercufleas tried to stop them, only to be whacked aside by the Beezos, who struck Hercufleas in the head with the urn containing the Great Balls of Fire.

Getting off the ground, Hercufleas tried to chase the fleeing Beezos, only to run out of breath. As Hercufleas was left panting on the stairs of his acropolis, a Beezo flew over to him and mocking Hercufleas, tied his legs together and pushed him down several stairs, causing Hercufleas to crash into a statue of his much fitter self.

Some time later, Mario and Luigi, who had just returned from an unsuccessfull attempt to get the Great Balls of Fire back from King Koopa, tried to cheer-up a depressed Hercufleas. As Mario and Luigi talked to Hercufleas, they manage to convince him to allow them to train him and get him into batter shape. At first, Hercufleas did horrible at his training, failing at jogging, chin-ups and jumping-jacks, though Hercufleas eventually does get better. After a lot of training, Hercufleas manages to get back into shape and decides to help Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool in defeating King Koopa.

Shortly after arriving at the Koopacropolis, Hercufleas, Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool could only watch as a Beezo attempted to dump Toad into the Great Balls of Fire, under King Koopa's command. As Toad was dropped on top of the Great Balls of Fire, Hercufleas, grabbing a tray of marshmallows from the nearby Mouser, threw it over the top of the urn the Great Balls of Fire were in, saving Toad; with Toad saved, King Koopa's Beezo minions were captured when, after trying to re-capture Toad, they accidentally flew into the marshmallows that softened Toad's landing, becoming stuck in them.

King Koopa, becoming enraged, began trying to defeat Hercufleas by shooting the Great Balls of Fire at him; Hercufleas managed to easily knock these Great Balls of Fire away though, by using a pillar as a bat. Unfortunately, as Hercufleas, Mario and Luigi knocked away the Great Balls of Fire, Toad was knocked off the Koopacropolis. Lucklily, Toad managed to grab a nearby Fire Flower, becoming Super Toad. With his newfound powers, Toad began to battle King Koopa as Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Hercufleas looked on.

Eventually King Koopa was defeated and Hercufleas, Toad, Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool returned to Hercufleas' acropolis, where Hercufleas and Toad were congratulated for driving King Koopa out of Mythis.

Before Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool ever had the chance to meet him though, Herlock Solmes was kidnapped by Professor Kooparity, whose plans to destroy Victoria Herlock Solmes had discovered. Losing his hat and magnifying glass in a scuffle with Professor Kooparity, Herlock Solmes was taken to Professor Kooparity's sewer headquarters, where he was tied to a chair and mocked by Professor Kooparity, Mouser, Tryclyde and a Koopa Troopa. As Professor Kooparity taunted Herlock Solmes, he jokingly said that he bet Herlock Solmes couldn't figure out what Professor Kooparity was planning to do; Professor Kooparity was left dumbstruck though, when Herlock Solmes correctly deduced that Professor Kooparity, Mouser, Tryclyde and the Koopa Troopa were going to steal the Retro Router from the Tower of Victoria and use it to flood all of Victoria.

Later, after Professor Kooparity, Mouser, Tryclyde and the Koopa Troopa stole the Retro Router and were preparing to use it to flood Victoria, Professor Kooparity gloated that once he flooded Victoria, he would be one of the vilest villains ever and asked Herlock Solmes, who was still tied to a chair, what he thought of him now; after being asked this by Professor Kooparity, Herlock Holmes proceeded to reveal several embarrassing secrets of Professor Kooparity and mocked him, which enraged Professor Kooparity and caused the nearby Mouser, Tryclyde and Koopa Troopa laugh hysterically.

Eventually, Herlock Solmes was released from his confinement by Professor Kooparity by Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, who managed to find Professor Kooparity's sewer headquarters and defeated Professor Kooparity and the Koopa Pack and destroyed the Retro Router, stopping it from flooding all of Victoria.

Afterward, at Herlock Solmes house on Bonkers Street, Herlock Solmes gratefully thanked Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool for stopping Professor Kooparity from flooding Victoria, as Mario searched Herlock Solmes house for some food.

Despite being apes, June and Ward are quite civilized, as they are fully clothed, and live in a well furnished house, which happens to be located in the branches of a tree. Although they have no true children of their own, they are shown to have an unseen pet named Pooch, who is presumably a dog. They also have a copy of the book Naked Ape in their living room.

Junior is a human boy from Brooklyn who appears in appears in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Misadventures in Babysitting".

Junior is an out-of-control brat; his parents might actually fear him, as they talk kindly towards him, but can't stand being around him for long. Junior's family also has a pet cat named Kitty, but she appears to have been abused, most likely by Junior. From what his parents implied, they've had great difficulty finding a babysitter for him due to his bad reputation.

At the start of the episode, Junior breaks two vases that he tried to balance upon his head, and places Kitty on the broken pieces, giving his mother the impression that Kitty broke the vase. Afterwards, Mario and Luigi show up unexpectedly, and are coerced by Junior's mother to babysit Junior while they go out for the night (and to get a break from their son). Stuck at home with the two plumbers, Junior demands that they play hide-and-seek, and that Mario and Luigi are "it".

While looking for a hiding spot under the kitchen sink, Junior finds the Warp Pipe that the Mario Bros. came through and warps to the Mushroom Kingdom. Thinking it's the coolest place ever, Junior runs off, attacks a trio of Boomerang Brothers with one of their own Boomerangs and runs into Cheatsy, Bully and Kooky Von Koopa. Wanting to annoy Mario and Luigi, Junior agrees to work with the Koopalings. He pretends to be in danger so that Mario and Luigi try to rescue them, but instead, they are lured into a trap.

Although Junior thought that the Koopalings were just playing around, they get suspicious of Junior and toss him down a Warp Pipe to the Pipe Maze, where he gets lost and frightened. Eventually, Mario and Luigi come to his rescue, and help him escape from the Pipe Maze. Junior then helps the Mario Bros. plug a volcano that the Koopalings overloaded with lava, and the plumbers then take him home to Brooklyn.

At home, Mario and Luigi rush to get Junior in the bathtub, because his mother would be angry at them if he didn't bathe. When his mother sees that Mario and Luigi actually managed to give Junior a bath, she asks them if they can babysit the following Friday, to which Junior comments "Oh boy! That would be super!". Mario and Luigi, however, appear less enthusiastic about having another babysitting job.

Junior's Parents

Junior's Parents are the mother and father of Junior, and appear in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Misadventures in Babysitting".

Due to their limited appearance in the episode, little is known about them. The mother appears to be the dominant parent of the two, as she does almost all of the talking (the father only has one line). Although they care about their son, they're secretly desperate to get some time away from him.

When Junior's original babysitter fails to show up, Junior's mother finds Mario and Luigi in her kitchen, and practically dumps Junior in their arms just so that she and her husband can leave the house.

Later on, when the parents come back, the mother finds Junior taking a bath. She assumes that Mario and Luigi did such a good job babysitting her son, that she desperately asks them if they're willing to babysit the following Friday.



Kalmar is one of the seven Star Spirits found in Paper Mario. He is the star spirit designated to the Crystal King to guard in his very own Crystal Palace. As his name implies, he is very calm and hates fighting and arguments. His name is also the same as the Swedish city Kalmar, a fact possibly taken into consideration in the game's development when choosing to place him in a very cold area.

In Mario Party 5, Kalmar is the guide of the options mode.


Kamek is an old, yet powerful, Magikoopa and apparent advisor to Bowser (or at least high-ranking member in the Koopa Troop). He first appeared in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. He is also Baby Bowser's caretaker, and continues to look after Bowser, even in the present day. Kamek's name comes from the name for the Magikoopa species in Japanese: Kamekku (カメック), which is derived from kame, the Japanese word for "turtle". He is the main villain of the Yoshi series.

He is also an ally of Bowser, King of the Koopas, and has aided the Koopa leader in his various schemes. He first appeared as Luigi's nemesis, and is more than capable of devising and enacting villainous plans by himself, including his capture and imprisonment of the hero Mario. Although not the biggest Boo in the Mushroom World, King Boo has abilities that far surpass that of the average ghost, and wields a number of impressive magical abilities, including the ability to materialize objects out of thin air. King Boo's magical power is directly proportional to the number of Boos in his vicinity.

King James

King James is the funky ruler of the city of Rap Land. He is based on the late James Brown.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Bad Rap", King James had been taken hostage in his own castle by Rappin' Koopa. Rappin' Koopa had placed King James onto a giant turntable, where he would inevitably get stabbed with the giant record needle that went along with it. However, King James was confident that the Flab Boys would rescue him, and soon learned that Rappin' Koopa had spotted them, along with Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad as they approached the castle.

King James soon met up with Princess Toadstool, who had unfortunately been captured by Rappin' Koopa. Rappin' Koopa then turned on the record player, and left the King and Princess alone as the needle slowly lowered towards them. Thankfully, Toad managed to sneak in and turn off the record player, saving them.

After meeting up with the Mario Bros., King James declared that the only way to stop Rappin' Koopa was to shut off his power by pulling the Royal Plug of Rap Land's power supply. Mario eventually succeeded in pulling the enormous plug.

To counter Rappin' Koopa's attack, King James assisted Princess Toadstool in blowing up several Albatosses with exploding records (see Stereo Gun). Due to the Albatosses disappearance, the others were able to take out Rappin' Koopa and his Koopa Troopas, freeing Rap Land from their reign.

When the Koopas had fled from Rap Land, King James and the Flab Boys danced to the Mario Rap. Honored by Mario, King James gave him a special crown, and declared him number one in a rapping duel.

King Koopa's mother

King Koopa's mother (alternatively known as Bowser's mother) is the mother of King Koopa, who she appears to be somewhat disappointed in and continously dots on; King Koopa's mother is portrayed as being loudmouthed and overbearing, and is also hinted at being somewhat of a glutton. King Koopa constantly refers to her as Mama, while she calls King Koopa, Koopums.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Do You Princess Toadstool Take This Koopa...?", King Koopa, unable to think of any friends to invite to his wedding to Princess Toadstool, who he had blackmailed into marrying him, had Mouser invite his mother, who he stated would come for the cake.

Having apparently received Mouser's invitation, King Koopa's mother arrived at her son's castle as King Koopa was instructing his Koopa Troopa band to play better. Immediately showing praise for her son at having finally found a wife to settle down with, King Koopa's mother, upon seeing Princess Toadstool, proclaimed that after Princess Toadstool and her son were married, they would honeymoon with her in the foulest, smelliest swamp in seven worlds. This news caused Princess Toadstool to begin sobbing, which King Koopa's mother misinterpreted as Princess Toadstool being overcome with joy.

When Princess Toadstool and King Koopa's wedding was about to begin, King Koopa's mother noticed that her son wasn't dressed for the occasion, and immediately sent him away to get dressed. As King Koopa put on his wedding jacket and pants, which were earlier ruined and recently repaired by Mouser, his mother evidently became impatient and shrieked for her son to hurry; the sound of his mother's voice prompted King Koopa and Mouser to rush to the wedding, not noticing that King Koopa had left behind his Magic Scepter, which Mario managed to claim.

Before Princess Toadstool could say "I do" to King Koopa during the wedding, Super Mario, Super Luigi and Toad appeared to interrupt it with a hail of fireballs. As the various attending Koopa Troopas and Goombas went into a frenzied panic, King Koopa's mother seemingly managed to avoid the chaos and the collapse of the wedding cake. After things died down and Princess Toadstool, after having learned that King Koopa had changed all the Mushroom People into stone once again after he freed them, broke off her marriage to King Koopa, his mother voiced her outrage at her son. Hitting King Koopa on the head with a drum, his mother yelled that she had to tell all their relatives that King Koopa was still a bachelor before telling King Koopa to sit in the corner for six days, an order which caused King Koopa to faint.

Bowser's father is another non-game character who could have been married to King Koopa's mother. Poopa La Koopa is her implied father, as he is Bowser's grandfather. Alternatively, Poopa La Koopa could also be the father of Bowser's Father.

King Mackerel

King Mackerel is the mermaid ruler of Mertropolis, and appears in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode The Ugly Mermaid. His daughter is Holly Mackerel.

Throughout the episode, King Mackerel worries about Bowser's threat to destroy Mertropolis, and is surprised to see that Mario is afraid of the water. At the end of the episode, after Mario saves the city, King Mackerel awards him with a medal.

King Neptune

Neptune, Lord of the Deep, better known as King Neptune is a merman, and the ruler of the Aqua Land. He is the king of the Mermushrooms, despite not actually being a Mermushroom himself. King Neptune generally has a very good disposition, displaying a very calm and pleasant attitude unless he is pushed too far. Despite his peaceful nature, he is not afraid to fight against anyone who stands in his way.

King Windbag

King Windbag is the ruler of Ice Land and one of the seven Mushroom Kings.

King Windbag was featured prominently in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Life's Ruff". Princess Toadstool had come increasingly concerned over King Windbag's bullying attitude and had sent Luigi to sort things out with him.

Shortly after arriving at King Windbag's castle, Luigi and King Windbag were attacked by Hip and Hop Koopa, who stole King Windbag's magic scepter. Hip and Hop then proceeded to transform Luigi and King Windbag into dogs.

King Windbag and Luigi attempted to give chase to Hip and Hop and ended-up chasing them through a Warp Pipe to Miami, Florida. As Luigi was chasing down Hip and Hop through a dinner party, King Windbag was captured by a dog catcher named Herman, who later captured Luigi.

While in the dog-pound, King Windbag is forced by Luigi to cooperate with several dogs to escape the pound. Succeeding in their escape, King Windbag and Luigi manage to track-down Hip and Hop to the Kennedy Space Center, and, after some trouble with Herman, manage to capture the Koopaling twins.

King Windbag manages to reclaim his scepter and, after returning himself, Luigi, Hip and Hop back to Mushroom World, "turns over a new leaf" and decides to become a kind king and stop bullying his servants.

King Windbag's Servant

King Windbag's Servant is the ragged clothes-wearing Mushroom Retainer of King Windbag, who performs many duties at the king's castle in Ice Land.

In The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Life's Ruff", Luigi had traveled to King Windbag's castle under the request of Princess Toadstool, to serve as a counselor to the King. When Luigi arrived, he could witness King Windbag bullying his servant around, ordering him to serve him duck when he had been presented with turkey.

Afraid that his floors were too dirty for Luigi's company, King Windbag ordered his servant to mop the floor, even though it wasn't dirty in the first place. Afraid of the wrath of King Windbag, the servant rushed to work, while King Windbag insulted him in front of Luigi. After Luigi referred to King Windbag as a bully, King Windbag dismissed his comment, and used his wand to scare his servant into bringing him his duck.

As the servant walked off, he overheard King Windbag commenting that a dog would make a better servant. The servant then commented to himself that he might as well be a dog with the way King Windbag treated him. Hip and Hop Koopa, who had followed Luigi to the castle, heard the servant, and got an idea; Turning King Windbag and Luigi into dogs.

Hip and Hop tripped the servant, and used his hat and covered plate as disguises to sneak up to King Windbag. The twins succeeded in stealing King Windbag's wand, using it to transform him and Luigi into dogs.

After a lengthy adventure to get the wand back, King Windbag returned home a kinder king, and demonstated his newfound kindness by treating his servant to a meal, much to the servant's surprise.


Kitty is a gray cat who briefly appears in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Misadventures in Babysitting".

Kitty is the family pet of Junior and his parents. Due to the fact that she has to live in a house with the out-of-control Junior, the cat appears to have suffered some degree of abuse, as evidenced by the bandages on her leg and forehead.

When Junior broke two vases, he scrambled to place Kitty on the broken pieces, tricking his parents into thinking that she was the one who broke it. As a result, the mother scolded Kitty.


Klevar is one of the seven Star Spirits in Paper Mario. He is the Star Spirit that Huff N. Puff guards.

He is young, and as his name implies he is very clever and always reads books. He holds a book under one arm. He has a bowtie, and rosey cheeks.

In Mario Party 5, Klevar explains the game's various modes.

Koopa Kid

The Koopa Kids are minions of Bowser who have only appeared in the Mario Party series. They are known as Mini-Bowsers in PAL territories, Mini Koopa in Japan (Bowser's name in Japan is Koopa) and Baby Bowsers in Mario Party, Mario Party 2 and Mario Party 3. The Koopa Kids resemble miniature versions of Bowser (and are therefore very similar in appearance to Bowser Jr. and Baby Bowser). Originally, the Koopa Kids were nothing more than minions indirectly fought by the Mario crew when the Koopas attempted to crash their parties, but in Mario Party 5, one was finally made playable (despite this, Bowser shows them no mercy when they land on his space. This is obviously so players using Koopa Kid do not have an advantage).

It is unknown how many Koopa Kids there are. Originally, there seemed to be only a few, but Mario Party Advance seemed to imply that there are close to hundreds of them.

Mario Party 5 also introduced Green K. Kid, Red K. Kid and Blue K. Kid who, as their names imply, are colored differently. The aforementioned colored kids are one Koopa Kid split into three. It is unknown if other Koopa Kids are capable of duplicating like this also.

In Mario Party 7, Koopa Kid is no longer playable. He has his own orb that Bowser sometimes sells in his shops. When it's used it will add a Koopa Kid Space to the board.

Koopa Kid's future is uncertain, as he did not appear in Mario Party 8 or Mario Party DS. Additionally, Bowser Jr. made his Mario Party debut in Mario Party DS (and soon to appear again in Mario Party 9), implying that Koopa Kid may have been retired in favor of him, although this is unconfirmed.

Koopa Krag

Koopa Krag is an elderly Koopa Troopa, and the grandfather of an unnamed Koopa. He appears in Mario Party DS.

In Story Mode, when the player reaches Kamek's Library, Krag's grandson comes rushing to ask for help, as Kamek had, for unknown reasons (but possibly because he had a Sky Crystal in his possession), trapped Koopa Krag in one of his books. The player battles Kamek in Book Bash, thus freeing Koopa Krag. The old Koopa happily rewards Mario's gang with the fourth Sky Crystal.

Koopa Master

The Koopa Master is an old Koopa who lives at the top of Pagoda Peak in Mario Party 7. If the player gives him enough coins, Koopa Master will give the character who climbed the mountain a star; the player must pay either 10, 20, 30, or 40 coins.

In the game's solo mode, he will give a Koopa Master T-Shirt to anyone who gives him 100 coins, thus winning the mode.

The Koopa Master has an apprentice named Kung Fu Koopa.

Koopa Paratroopa

Koopa Paratroopas (also known as Parakoopas, Sky Troopas in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, or simply Paratroopas), are Koopa Troopas with wings. They lose their wings when they are attacked in air, such as getting stomped or hurt by fireballs. They traditionally come in two varieties: Red Koopa Paratroopas usually fly up and down or side to side in a set path, while green Koopa Paratroopas often bounce in the player's general direction. Red Koopa Paratroopas first appear in World 1-3 of Super Mario Bros., while the green ones first appear in World 2-1 of the same game. However, some Paratroopas hover left and right, but in Super Mario Bros., World 7-2 has left/right Paratroopas. Their name comes from "paratrooper", a term used in the military to describe soldiers who parachute down to attack.

Koopa Troopa

Koopa Troopas (usually Koopas, occasionally Troopas, Japanese ノコノコ Nokonoko) are common enemies in the Mario series, usually displayed as foot soldiers of the Koopa Troop, under the direct leadership of Bowser. Since Super Mario 64, however, many Koopas have appeared who do not work for Bowser (or any other villain), some of whom even act as allies to Mario during his adventures. Koopa Troopas are turtle-like creatures with shells that come in many different colors, with red and green Koopa Troopas being the most common. Koopas, along with Goombas, are some of Mario's most common foes.


Larry Koopa

Larry Koopa (known as Cheatsy Koopa in the cartoons) is one of Bowser's eight children, and is the youngest of the seven Koopalings. He has blue hair like his older brother Ludwig, and as shown in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, he has an interest in tennis. He also likes to sing songs/symphonies about himself as seen in the Super Mario World episode "Gopher Bash". He originally had four visible fangs on the top corners of both sides of his mouth, however in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, he only has two. Unlike the other Koopalings, who are named after musicians, Larry Koopa is named after the American talk show host Larry King.


Lakitu is a character who makes his first appearance in Mario Kart 7, like Toadette in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Baby Daisy in Mario Kart Wii. Unlike the generic green-shelled Lakitu enemies, Lakitu has a red shell.

Lemmy Koopa

Lemmy Koopa (known as Hip Koopa in the cartoons) is one of Bowser's eight children. Despite being the second oldest of the Koopalings, Lemmy is the smallest of all of Bowser's children, and is often associated with childish traits due to his stature and personality. He is well recognized for his multicolored mohawk, crossed eyes, and the circus ball he balances atop in most appearances; his special abilities also deal with bouncy balls. Lemmy was named after Lemmy Kilmister, the lead singer and bass guitarist of the English heavy metal band Motörhead.

Ludwig von Koopa

Ludwig von Koopa (known as Kooky von Koopa in the cartoons) is the oldest Koopaling and was Bowser's second-in-command until Bowser Jr. came along. Like the other Koopalings, not much of Ludwig's personality has been revealed, though it is known that he is highly intelligent and somewhat arrogant and is said to be the cruelest of all the Koopalings. The Super Mario Adventures comic revealed that he enjoys video games, and Super Mario World stated that he likes to compose "Koopa Symphonies", much like his namesake, Ludwig van Beethoven, who was also the inspiration for the Koopaling's hair design. In battle he displays feats such as making earthquakes and magic blasts, spitting fireballs, shooting lightning blasts from his hands and the ability to teleport from place to place. Ludwig even has the ability to flutter jump like Yoshis.


Luigi (Japanese: ルイージ, Ruīji) is Mario's younger, taller, and slightly thinner twin brother. Luigi has assisted and fought alongside his brother on many occasions. Throughout his life, he has lived in Mario's shadow, developing both cowardly and heroic tendencies. Mario Bros. marks his first appearance in the Mario series, and his debut in general. Originally a palette swap of Mario, Luigi was created to facilitate a second player option. Since the two player mode was dropped from most main Super Mario games beginning with Super Mario Land, Luigi had gained his own identity and personality.


MC Ballyhoo

MC Ballyhoo is a major character from Mario Party 8, in which he hosts the various game modes as the self-proclaimed, "master of catastrophes." He and his hat, Big Top, are the driving force behind the annual Star Carnival, hosting all of the attractions. While MC Ballyhoo is very extravagant and energetic in both speech and manner, Big Top is much calmer. Although the two rarely separate, they are separate entities capable of independent thought and action.

MC Ballyhoo's name is based on the word "ballyhoo," meaning "great noise or commotion." This term is often applied to carnival audiences. The acronym "MC" traditionally stands for the title, "master of ceremonies", but with MC Ballyhoo it stands for "Master of Catastrophies".


Mack is a member of the Smithy Gang and one of Smithy's lieutenants. He appears in the game Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Mack is in command of an army of Shysters, pogo-stick riding Shy Guys. Mack also wields powerful fire magic. With his army of soldiers, Mack attacked the Mushroom Kingdom and occupied it. Mario, conveniently, was in Bandit's Way with Mallow, chasing down the thief Croco. Mack allowed his Shysters to overrun the town, causing chaos as they wished. Along with Bowyer, Yaridovich, and the Axem Rangers, Mack's inspiration was a weapon, in this case, a knife.

When Mario and Mallow returned to town, they were shocked by the sudden appearance of the Shysters. Together, they rescued townspeople and fought to the throne room of the castle, where they confronted Mack and his elite Shyster Bodyguards. After a long battle, Mario emerged victorious, driving Smithy's forces out of the Mushroom Kingdom. In the aftermath, Mario earned his first Star Piece. On a related note when Mack is destroyed, the two remaining Shyster Bodyguards will leave to inform Smithy of Mack's demise and to say how powerful Mario is.

Mack would return in Smithy's Factory, in the form of a gray mass-produced copy of the original.

Mack is a red-colored, roundish figure who holds onto a pair of handles on top of a giant knife with floating eyes (or maybe the knife itself), thereby riding the knife much as Shysters and their derivatives ride on pogo sticks. When attacking, Mack shakes his head.


Madzilla is a fictional monster who stars in his own movie series, which are filmed in Hollywood.

In The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Dadzilla", Kootie Pie and Big Mouth, upon arriving in Hollywood, thought that Madzilla was their real father, due to the way that Bowser treated Kootie Pie earlier on. The two Koopalings used their Magic Scepters to bring a mechanical Madzilla to life. Confused upon being brought to life, Madzilla was tricked by Big Mouth and Kootie Pie into thinking that they were his long lost children, and they told him what parents are "supposed" to do. At first, Madzilla was not evil, and only wished the best for his "children", such as stealing a car and towing them around Hollywood.

Eventually, Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad caught on to the two Koopaling's plans, and come to stop it. Using a Fire Flower, Mario became Fire Mario, but was unable to stop Madzilla before losing his powers. Madzilla managed to lock the heroes up in a props warehouse, and allowed Big Mouth and Kootie Pie to get their own clawprints in the Walk of Fame.

Mario and his friends then built their own robot out of spare parts in the warehouse to play the role of Madzilla's Mom. In the interum, Madzilla was told to steal the Hollywood Bowl so that Big Mouth and Kootie Pie could perform their own concert. After the concert received a poor reception from the public, Madzilla picked up several innocent people, whom he threatened to toss in the Pacific Ocean. Before he could do so, Madzilla met up with Mario's robot, which he believed was his mother. While controlling Madzilla's Mom, Mario tricked Madzilla's "children" into fleeing by insisting that everyone in their family must take naps so that they'll be rested to do their chores. Not wanting to stick around, Big Mouth and Kootie Pie ran back home.

Afterwords Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, and Toad explained everything to Madzilla, and allowed him to live in Giant Land, to which he happily accepted, especially once he found out that the Koopalings would no longer bother him. It is presumed that he still lives in Giant Land.

Madzilla's Mom

Madzilla's Mom, or Momma Madzilla is a both robotic monster who starred in the movie Revenge of Madzilla's Mom, and an assembly of various old monsters made to combat Madzilla.

In The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Dadzilla", Kootie Pie and Big Mouth, upon arriving in Hollywood, thought that Madzilla was their real father, due to the way that Bowser treated Kootie Pie earlier on. The two Koopalings used their Magic Scepters to bring a mechanical Madzilla to life.

Madzilla managed to lock the Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, and Toad up in a props warehouse, and allowed Big Mouth and Kootie Pie to get their own clawprints in the Walk of Fame.

Mario then devised a plan to build their own robot out of spare parts in the warehouse to play the role of Madzilla's Mom. In the interum, Madzilla was told to steal the Hollywood Bowl so that Big Mouth and Kootie Pie could perform their own concert. After the concert received a poor reception from the public, Madzilla picked up several innocent people, whom he threatened to toss in the Pacific Ocean. Before he could do so, Madzilla met up with Mario's robot, which he believed was his mother. While controlling Madzilla's Mom, Mario tricked "Junior"'s "children" into fleeing by insisting that everyone in their family must take naps so that they'll be rested to do their chores. Not wanting to stick around, Big Mouth and Kootie Pie ran back home.

She seems to be made out of a monster head, a dragon body and right leg, a gorilla's right arm, a sea monster's left arm, and a giant's left leg. She also has the power to exhale steam from her nostrils.


Mallow is a cloud-like character from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. He is also the de jure prince of Nimbus Land, as well as Mario's first partner in the game. In battle, Mallow isn't especially strong physically; however, he has a strong command of magic, including the ability to heal. All of his special attacks are weather-based.

Mama Fireplant

Mama Fireplant is a large, talking Venus Fire Trap and a character from the Super Mario World episode "Fire Sale".

Mama Fireplant lives on the outskirts of Dome City in a dome-house. Unlike most Piranha Plants, Mama Fireplant is actually nice, aiding the nearby inhabitants of Dome City by using her fireballs to give them heat.

During "Fire Sale", Mama Fireplant was kidnapped by Kootie Pie Koopa and her Koopa Troopa henchman; Kootie Pie had planned on using Mama Fireplant to heat-up her palace in Ice Land, Kootie Pie also planned on making a fortune selling-off Mama Fireplant's fireballs to the cavepeople. She also has a song to sing during the episode called Kootie Pie Rap.

Yoshi, Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool managed to track Mama Fireplant to Kootie Pie's rapidly melting palace. After some trouble involving Porcupine Fish, it was Yoshi who saved Mama Fireplant, using her pot as a sled to slide-out of Kootie Pie's palace.

Mama Fireplant was returned to her home in Dome City, where she proceeded to throw a barbecue party in Yoshi's honor.


Mamar is one of the seven Star Spirits in Paper Mario. Because of her kind-hearted and happy nature, she looks after the six other Star Spirits. She is the Star Spirit Tutankoopa guards. Her power is just like a Sleepy Sheep.

In Mario Party 5, Mamar is the guide of bonus mode. She is the only Star Spirit that appears on the box art, shown just as a regular star with a bow.


Mario (Japanese: マリオ, Mario) is the eponymous main character and protagonist of the long-running and highly successful Mario series. He was created by Japanese video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto and also serves as the main mascot of Nintendo. Mario made his first appearance as the protagonist of the arcade game Donkey Kong, released in 1981. Since Super Mario Bros., his trademark abilities have been his jumping and stomping powers, with which he defeats most of his enemies, and his ability to change size and gain powers with a plethora of items, such as the Super Mushroom and Fire Flower. Games have always portrayed Mario as a silent character without a distinct personality. According to Nintendo's philosophy, this allows Mario to fit in many different genres and roles. In most games, he is the hero that goes on an adventure to save Princess Peach from the evil Bowser, but he has shown doing other things besides adventuring, such as racing and sporting.

Mark Twang

Mark Twang is an elderly man who seemingly inhabits the River World, whose rivers he voyages down in his ship, the Ding Bell.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Rolling Down the River", Mark Twang apparently agrees to a race with Captain Koopa and his Sinister Star, with whoever winning the race becoming King of the River and presumably, the River World. Unfortunately, the engine of the Ding Bell was sabotaged by Captain Koopa, severally limiting the speed which Mark Twang could travel at on the Ding Bell.

While feebly trying to catch-up to Captain Koopa and the Sinister Star, Mark Twang happened too, by chance, find Mario and Luigi in the river. With a lasso, Mark Twang managed to pull Mario and Luigi aboard the Ding Bell, narrowly saving them from being devoured by a Trouter. Mark Twang was then told by Mario and Luigi that they were trying to rescue Princess Toadstool, who had been kidnapped by Captain Koopa and was being held onboard the Sinister Star.

After hearing Mario and Luigi's story, Mark Twang told them his own, about his race against Captain Koopa; deciding to aid Mark Twang, Mario and Luigi began to work on the engine of the Ding Bell.

After the Ding Bell's engine was repaired, Mark Twang, along with Mario and Luigi, began to catch-up to Captain Koopa and the Sinister Star; only to be met with another obstacle, an unpassable black pit created by Captain Koopa and a Black Pit Bob-omb. After narrowly managing to escape the current of the black pit, thanks to Mario and Luigi using a plunger to anchor the Ding Bell, Mark Twang, along with Mario and Luigi, decided to venture onto land to seak the advice of the Mouth of the River to help them pass the black pit.

Finding the Mouth of the River, Mark Twang, Mario and Luigi gained some cryptic advice to help them pass the black pit. Watching as Mario and Luigi created a large piping system, Mark Twang was surprised when that piping system managed to drain the water surrounding the black pit and emptied it in a nearby path, separated from the black pit by a wall of rocks. Mark Twang, with Mario, Luigi and the Mouth of the River easily managed to pass the Ding Bell through this newly created path.

Later, Mark Twang, with Super Mario and Super Luigi, who powered the Ding Bell ahead with pumps, managed to catch-up to and pull along side the Sinister Star. As Mario and Luigi leaped from the Ding Bell to the Sinister Star, Mark Twang had the Ding Bell zoom ahead of the Sinister Star.

Afterwards, as Mario was about to be forced overboard by Captain Koopa on the Sinister Star, the Ding Bell, supposedly driven by Mark Twang, appeared. As Mark Twang maneuvered the Ding Bell, the Mouth of the River used the Ding Bell's cannon to launch Turnips at the Sinister Star.

In the end, the Sinister Star was crashed into a beach and Mario and Luigi, along with Princess Toadstool and Toad boarded the Ding Bell, which passed the finish line of the river. Mark Twang was last seen being congratulated by Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool for having become King of the River.

Mayor Fettuccine

Mayor Fettuccine is a Mushroom Person who is the mayor of Pasta Land, and is named for a type of pasta.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "The Pied Koopa", Mayor Fettuccine, along with the rest of the adults in Pasta Land, are faced with the problem of King Koopa having kidnapped all of the children with a magic flute. After Mouser delivers King Koopa's ransom via a Koopagram for the children in exchage for Pasta Land's spaghetti crops, Mayor Fettuccine is forced to fork over four Gold Coins to pay for the Koopagram.

Mayor Fettuccine decides that the town must give all of their spaghetti crops to King Koopa to get the kids back, but Mario announces that he and his friends will get the kids back, if only so that the people don't have to give up their spaghetti to King Koopa. After Mario and his friends returned with the kids, Mayor Fettuccine awarded each of them with the Order of the Golden Meatball; a golden medal in the shape of a meatball.

Mayor Fettuccine was also seen at the Pasta Land picnic in the episode "Mario and the Red Baron Koopa". However, he had no actual role in this episode and was merely a background character with no lines.

Mayor of New York

The Mayor of New York City is, as his name implies, the mayor of New York City, the original home of Mario and Luigi.

In The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Recycled Koopa", Mario and Luigi, believing the Mayor of New York City could help them clean up the garbage Bowser was dumping on Brooklyn, went to the New York City hall to find him. Arriving at the city hall, Mario and Luigi were horrified to find that the mayor, like everyone else nearby, had begun to mutate into a Koopa Zombie, with only his head remaining human. Before Mario or Luigi could speak with the panicking mayor, he fully transformed into a Koopa Zombie and ran into the streets of the city, where he joined a horde of his mindless, Koopa Zombie brethren.

Mean Woody

Mean Woody is the evil version of Woody who appears in Mario Party 3. He lives in Woody Woods near Woody.

While they are separate characters, in Mario Party 6 Woody is at the top of Towering Treetop however in night time, Woody is replaced by Mean Woody. Whenever a character lands on one of Mean Woody's Green Spaces, instead of him giving coins like the good Woody does, the Mean Woody will instead take away coins by dropping Spinies on every character.


Mermushrooms are a sub-species of Mushroom People that resemble merfolk. Although they have the heads of Mushroom People, the rest of their bodies appear to be entirely fish-like. The only place where Mermushrooms are known to live is their own kingdom, Aqua Land. The ruler of Aqua Land is King Neptune. Ironically, King Neptune himself does not appear to be a Mermushroom, and instead resembles a typical merman.

Mermushrooms were only ever seen in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Mario of the Deep". Here, Barra-Koopa had taken over all of Aqua Land, and was forcing all the Mermushrooms to be his slaves. What their duties were as slaves is partially unclear, as the only duty they were shown to perform was gathering up the Gold Coins from the sunken ships in Aqua Land for Barra-Koopa.

One unnamed, female Mermushroom in particular was featured throughout the episode. In an attempt to seek help, she was seized by a Bloober, and was eventually rescued by Mario and Luigi. This Mermushroom then continued to guide Mario's group around Aqua Land, and explained the situation concerning Barra-Koopa's takeover to them. She eventually led them to the dungeon where King Neptune was being held captive, so that Mario's group could rescue him, and stayed with the group up until the end of the episode.

Mervin the Magician

Mervin the Magician is a powerful magician and inhabitant and seemingly the protector of the kingdom of Cramalot.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "King Mario of Cramalot", Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad travel to Cramalot in search of Mervin, who they believed could free Princess Toadstool's kingdom of King Koopa's rule.

On the road to Cramalot, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool are attacked by a gang of Beezo; it is only through the intervention of Mervin that Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool are saved from the Beezo, who Mervin seemingly vaporizes with his wand. After defeating the Beezo, Mervin, along with Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool travel to Mervin's cave, where Mervin reveals that King Koopa has taken over Cramalot.

After telling Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool of King Koopa's conquest of Cramalot, Mervin reveals that, whoever can pull the Golden Plunger from the Sacred Sink of Cramalot will be able to defeat King Koopa.

After revealing this, Mervin takes Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool to the town square of Cramalot, where he instructs Mario to remove the Golden Plunger from the Sacred Sink of Cramalot, which Mario succeeds in doing. Unfortunately, as Mario, Luigi, Toad, Princess Toadstool and Mervin celebrate Mario's claiming of the Golden Plunger, they are captured by King Koopa and his Koopa Troopas and Koopa Paratroopas.

Despite using his Golden Plunger to escape a net dropped on him by King Koopa's Koopa Paratroopa minions, Mario, as well as Mervin, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool are captured by King Koopa, who also claims the Golden Plunger as his own.

It seems Mervin had somehow evaded capture by King Koopa, as he later appeared in the dungeon of Cramalot Castle and, using his magic wand, teleported Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool from their rapidly flooding cell. After leaving Cramalot Castle, Mervin brought Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool to the Forest of Perpetual Night and Terrible Dangers; in this forest, Mario discovered the legendary Excalibur, which he planned to use against King Koopa.

Later, Mervin aided Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool in their siege of Cramalot Castle, where he defeated several of King Koopa's Koopa Troopa henchmen.

In the end, King Koopa is defeated by Mario, who is crowned the new king of Cramalot by Mervin; unfortunately, it turned out that the king of Cramalot had to be physically fit, meaning Mario had to go on a diet and eat healthy food to be Cramalot's king. Horrified by this prospect, Mario gave his crown to Mervin, who he decided to be Cramalot's new king.

Metal Mario

Metal Mario is an independent character in the Mario universe, usually being one of the fiercer end-game opponents in the Mario sport games or Super Smash Bros. series. It is spun-off from Metal Mario, which is a form of Mario, rather than a distinct character. Unlike Mario, Metal Mario often plays the role of Mario's rival.

Mighty Plumber

Mighty Plumber is a TV Star who is idolized by Mario and Luigi. He bills himself as "faster than a speeding plunger, more powerful than a pipe wrench, able to snag disgusting drain clogs with a flick of the wrist." He appears in the episode "Misadventure of Mighty Plumber" in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 TV Show. He was saving a lady on TV from a disaster when Cheatsy Koopa used a Magic Wand to teleport him to Castle Koopa. King Koopa then planned to trick Mighty Plumber into helping him steal Pipe Land's Coin Treasury, saying that the Mario Bros. were trying to steal it for themselves and he had to put it in Castle Koopa for "safekeeping". Mighty Plumber helped Koopa steal the treasure, however, Koopa revealed he was the thief all along. The Mario Bros. and Mighty Plumber then retrieved the money with their combined forces. Finally, Cheatsy was forced to send Mighty Plumber back on TV, where he saved the lady from a clog-like monster.

Millenium Star

The Millennium Star is the name of two known star entities, one false and one who is the real. They both appeared in Mario Party 3.

The imposter Millennium Star is a silver, mustachioed star who will grant the wish of any player who passes his test. The Millennium Star fell on Peach's Garden while Mario and his friends were resting. Mario and his friends argued about who would get the star, which resulted in Lakitu coming and suggesting that they have a contest to see who get the star.

When the player first meets Daisy during the story mode, Daisy makes the Millennium Star fall in love with her. When the player beats Waluigi's Island, the Millennium Star then says that the player has one more opponent. The player doesn't understand so the Millennium star tells the player that it is him. The Millennium Star then challenges the player to the Stardust Battle. After the player beats the Stardust Battle, the Millennium Star then says that he isn't the real Millennium Satr. Tumble then opens the top of his die cap to reveal another, much different Millennium Star; the one Mario and his friends had been trying to please was an imposter. The real Millenium Star is a white star that emits an intense rainbow-colored halo and truly has the power to declare the Superstar of the Universe.

Milli Vanilli

Milli Vanilli was a band consisting of Rob Pilatus (June 8, 1965 – April 2, 1998) and Fab Morvan (May 14, 1966 – ). They are apparently Princess Toadstool's favorite rock band.

They appeared in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 once, in the episode "Kootie Pie Rocks". In the episode, Cheatsy overhears the Mario Brothers talking about going to a rock concert with Princess Toadstool, for Milli Vanilli. Cheatsy made his way back to Castle Koopa and explained to Kootie Pie Koopa what the Mario Brothers intended to do. Kootie Pie was not pleased about the Princess getting something that she wasn't. In the middle of the band's concert, Cheatsy and King Koopa appeared in their Doomship and kidnapped the two singers, then made their way back to Castle Koopa. Kootie Pie wanted the two rock singers to sing for her but they refused. Kootie Pie was enraged, and she turned the two into accountants.

Mario, Luigi, the Princess, and Toad disguised themselves and helped Milli Vanilli escape from the castle, then returned them to their concert.

Milli Vanilli was the only guest appearance on The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3; whereas the preceding show, The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, had several during the live-action segments.


Misaki is a martial arts master who resides in the Oriental city of Sayonara. Misaki is presumably well-known throughout Mushroom World, as Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad made a return trip to Sayonara to purposely seek him out. Misaki is shown to run a dojo, where he trains himself and any students wanting to learn from him.


Misstar is one of the seven Star Spirits in Paper Mario.

This young Star Spirit is pure hearted but strong. She is one of the two female Star Spirits and wears a yellow ribbon on her head.

Misstar was rescued by Mario and his team on Lavalava Island. She was guarded by the aggressive Lava Piranha and his Lava Buds. After Mario rescued her, Misstar (in turn) helped Mario, Kolorado and Mario's team escape the volcano that was about to erupt. She added her powers to that of Mario's and left to meet up with the other Star Spirits.

She is also found in Mario Party 5 hosting one of the game modes. She hosts the story mode.

A Star Spirit that looks like Misstar appears in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. In Star Hill, a Star Spirit appears and tell the Mario Brothers and Baby Brothers to gather all the Cobalt Shards. However, it is revealed that she was not a Star Spirit and was actually Elder Princess Shroob.


Missy is a fictional Real World young girl and a who appears in the TV show The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3. She only appears in the episode, "Mush-Rumors" where she and her family are supposed to be driving to Wild Waldo's One-of-a-Kind Amusement Park in the U.S. countryside, but they end up in the Mushroom World.

Shortly after driving in the Mushroom Kingdom, Missy and her brother, Bud, are bewildered by this strange world, but their mother tells them to calm down and that they entered Iowa. After that, the car crashes into two walls of Blocks and the car gets nearly totaled.

Before Mario and Luigi arrive, Missy asks her father where they really are and Norman thinks that they might be in Nebraska, not Iowa. Mario and Luigi helps the family out afterward by pushing the station wagon into the river using the raft. Just after the Doomship started firing Bob-ombs out, Missy exclaims that she is glad that her parents brought her here and Bud agrees with her.

After all of these events and Mario and Luigi saved them, the Doomship grabs the station wagon with a magnet and takes Missy's family to Kastle Koopa. She then remarks that she would rather go home.

After Kooky von Koopa attempts to look at the "aliens'" plans, Mario and Luigi breaks the Transmutational Brainwave Analyzer, and sends the family back to their station wagon. Missy, before Mario sends her back, asks if he was Uncle Waldo.

Morton Koopa Jr.

Morton Koopa Jr. (known as Big Mouth Koopa Jr. in the cartoons) is one of Bowser's eight children and is the second youngest Koopaling. Morton stands out from his siblings because of his primarily darker skin colouration and his grey head and until New Super Mario Bros. Wii gave his siblings unique shell colours, his pale grey shell was also a point of interest. He also has a star-shaped birthmark on his face, although Larry now has similar markings. Although Morton is the largest of the Koopalings, he isn't as powerful as some of his older brothers, like Ludwig or Roy, though this may just be due to the fact that he is one of the younger Koopalings, and needs to grow some more.

Morton is named after Morton Downey Jr. This is the reason for the "Jr." at the end of his name; no in-universe reason for it has been provided. The editors of the magazine Nintendo Power once claimed that when they asked Bowser why Morton Koopa was called "Jr.", he responded by pelting them with Bob-ombs.


Mouser is a Mouser who first appears in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! and Nintendo Comics System. Unlike the species called Mouser, the character, Mouser, worked for King Koopa and is second-in-command. Like his boss King Koopa, Mouser had many aliases that went with the theme of the episode. In the show, he was voiced by John Stocker.

Mouth of the River

The Mouth of the River, also known as Madame Mouth or simply The Mouth, is a gypsy-like woman who inhabits the River World, which she knows everything about.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Rolling Down the River", Mario, Luigi and Mark Twang seek the advice of the Mouth of the River to help them pass the black pit, which blocked the path of Mark Twang's ship, the Ding Bell. Finding the Mouth of the River's caravan, Mario, Luigi and Mark Twang gained some cryptic advice from her, have the river "go around" the black pit.

Later, after the Ding Bell passes the black pit through the aid of a river-making pipe system built by Mario and Luigi, the Mouth of the River joins the crew of the Ding Bell. While onboard the Ding Bell, the Mouth of the River gives Mario and Luigi two magic pendants which, when put-on by Mario and Luigi, transforms them into Super Mario and Super Luigi; with their new superpowers, Mario and Luigi easily power the Ding Bell ahead by using a large, jump-powered pump.

The Mouth of the River later appears to attack Captain Koopa's ship, the Sinister Star with a large, Turnip-launching cannon attached to the Ding Bell. Luckily, one of the Turnips fired by the Mouth of the River's cannon managed to hit the driver of the Sinister Star, Clawgrip, knocking him unconscious and allowing Princess Toadstool to take control of the Sinister Star.

Afterwards, after Captain Koopa is defeated, the Sinister Star destroyed and the Ding Bell crosses the finish line of the River World, the Mouth of the River appears to serve Mario, Luigi, Toad, Princess Toadstool and Mark Twang their victory lunch, catfish pizza, with a raw catfish on it.

Mr. Blizzard

Mr. Blizzards are living Snowmen in the Mario series that hop up and down and throw snowballs.

Mr. I

A Mr. I is one of the more spooky-oriented species in the Mario series. Its name is self-descriptive; they seem to be nothing more than a giant eyeball. Additionally, Mr. I is always completely immobile, as it can only rotate around in place.

Mr. President

Mr. President (or just The President) was the President of the United States during many Mario cartoons. He has made appearances in a few Mario cartoon episodes and also in a Club Nintendo comic. In reality, the office is currently held by Barack Obama.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Plumbers Academy" and its live-action segment "Glasnuts", Mr. President has a small role in both the animated and live action segments. In "Plumbers Academy", Mr. President was giving Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev a drive-by tour around Brooklyn, when the street started flooding with water. Mario and Luigi, determined to prove themselves as great plumbers, dived down into the sewers to stop the source of the flood. Later on at the White House, Mr. President awarded Mario with a Golden Plumber's Helper, and Luigi with a Golden Wrench.

In "Glasnuts", Mr. President simply calls the Mario bros. to tell them that Mikhail Gorbachev is coming over.

In the live action segment "Caught in a Draft", Sgt. Slaughter visits the Mario Bros. to train them for the army, as ordered by the President. Later on, Mr. President calls, but Sgt. Slaughter answers the phone, and learns the truth - he was supposed to recruit the Ratigator, not the Mario's.

In the live action segment "Captain Lou Is Missing", the Marios form a search party with Cyndi Lauper to help locate Lou Albano. Towards the end, Cyndi receives a letter from Mr. President, who decrees that Lou Albano is officially missing forever.

In The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Reptiles in the Rose Garden", despite the fact that the White House is lifted up from the ground and warped to Dark Land, Mr. President never notices, as he spends the entire episode talking on the phone. Even when King Koopa sinks the White House to the bottom of Mushroom Sea does Mr. President not notice what's going on. Instead, his wife does all the talking when Mario arrives to save them.

Eventually, Mario returned the White House to Washington, D.C., and Mr. President was able to continue his job with running America until the end of his term.

The President also made an appearance in the Club Nintendo comic "Donkey Kong in: Banana Day 24". In the Kongs' jungle, it is snowing, a phenomenon never seen before, and from the TV news the Kongs learn that the President has invited for a summit to search for a solution to the problem of suddenly dropped temperature all over the world. Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong, Cranky Kong and Kiddy Kong decide to travel to the United States and talk to the President.

They meet him in the White House along with German chancellor Helmut Kohl, and after some heming and hawing the politicians explain that the cause of the climate change is a giant UFO pulling the Earth away from the sun. The President agrees to put a space shuttle at the Kongs' disposal so they could fly into space and convince the aliens to release the planet. Their mission succeeds, and so the Kongs return to Earth, being hailed by the people. The President and Kohl use this chance to showcase themselves with the saviors of mankind.

In the comic, the President appears as a likable and helpful person, although not lacking some traits considered typical of politicians, such as refusing to come out with the truth and enjoying to be in the limelight. He is blond-haired and is wearing a brown suit.

Mrs. President

Mrs. President was the First Lady of the United States during The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, and is the wife of Mr. President. An animated version of her appeared in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Reptiles in the Rose Garden". In reality, the title of Mrs. President is currently held by Michelle Obama.

In the episode, King Koopa used a Levitation Beam to warp the White House, along with everyone inside (including Mrs. President and her husband) to Dark Land. Shortly afterwards, Bowser banished the White House to the bottom of the Mushroom Sea. Mrs. President feared for their lives, while Mr. President simply continued his phone conversation.

When Mario showed up wearing a Frog Suit, Mrs. President was frightened of him at first. However, Mario quickly proved himself to Mrs. President by flushing the water out of the partially-flooded White House, allowing it to rise to the surface of the Mushroom Sea. As a thank you, Mrs. President told Mario that her husband would recommend him to all of their friends.

When Mario managed to warp the White House back to Washington, D.C., he accidentally placed it on top of the Washington Monument. Mrs. President told Mario that her husband couldn't run the country like this. Although she was never seen again on the show, it's assumed that her life returned to normal once the White House was returned to its proper spot.


Mugga is a woman from the The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!. Mugga is a medicinal caveman who lives with the Cave Mushrooms in Caveman Land. She does not know how to speak Mario's language, so she uses hieroglyphics and her Cave Mushrooms to communicate with him and his friends. Her only appearance was in the episode Quest for Pizza. In the episode, Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, and Toad were searching for Mugga. Mario's friends discovered her shelter behind a waterfall. Since Mario was in an unconscious state due to a snake bite, Mugga decided to help them. After trying a number of failed treatments, Mugga whispered "pizza". Mario's friends interpreted that she wanted them to feed Mario pizza. They completed the pizza, but needed to cook it. Mugga used a hieroglyphic Fire Flower to tell them that they needed a Fire Flower to cook the pizza.


Murphy is a leprechaun from the Shamrock Kingdom. He possesses a special Pot of Gold Coins, which grant him and anyone around him with good luck.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Mighty McMario and the Pot of Gold", Murphy's gold coins had been stolen by King O'Koopa, and without his gold coins, the leprechaun became a jinx, bringing bad luck instead of good.

Murphy meant well, as he treated Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool to lunch at the Shamrock Inn. However, his bad luck caused Mario to lose his lunch. On top of that, when King O'Koopa ordered his Koopa Troopas to raid the inn, Murphy's bad luck caused Mario's group to get hurt.

After escaping from the Koopas, Murphy's bad luck eventually triggered a rain storm, which slowly started to flood the Shamrock Kingdom. Mario and his friends tried to get the Pot of Gold Coins back from King O'Koopa without Murphy's help, but when they took too long, Murphy went after them, and his bad luck caused all of them to get caught.

Although Mario managed to find a way out of the dungeon, he told Murphy to keep safe while he rescued Princess Toadstool. Unfortunately, King O'Koopa caught him, along with everyone else. King O'Koopa was proud of his accomplishments in the Shamrock Kingdom, and was ready to leave the place as it began to start flooding.

When Murphy pointed out that his bad luck had ruined everything, Mario realized that they had to use the bad luck to their advantage; namely, have Murphy act as King O'Koopa's best friend. When Murphy's bad luck rubbed off on King O'Koopa, a series of mishaps caused him to blow up his own castle. Now afraid of what the leprechaun's bad luck could do to him, King O'Koopa surrendered, and fell into the moat.

Murphy then got his coins back, and the curse was immediately broken. The rain storm stopped, and a rainbow appeared in the sky. Murphy gave Mario a hug, and he was relieved when nothing bad happened. Mario then fell through the floor, but realized that it was good luck this time, for he landed at a table where a meal was waiting for him.

Mushroom Genie

The Mushroom Genie, also known as the Genie of the Lamp, is a magical entity first appearing in Mario Party 2. When a player rubbed a Magic Lamp, the Mushroom Genie appeared and took them to the host, where a star could be purchased. It reappeared in Mario Party 3, and also had a counterpart in this game: the female Mushroom Jeanie of the Lucky Lamp, who will instead change the Star's location. In Mario Party 4 the Genie appeared as a morbidly obese carrot figure. Unlike in previous games, the Genies would not have the player ride on its back to the star. Instead, it would simply jump and land, causing a huge rumble that would send a player to the star. In Mario Party 5 and afterwards, a Flutter took over the Mushroom Genie's role.

Mushroom Jeanie

The Mushroom Jeanie is a character from Mario Party 3. Mario and company can summon her by using the Lucky Lamp. Upon being called, the Mushroom Jeanie will move the Star to another location. The Mushroom Genie is her counterpart, who takes characters directly to the Star.

Mushroom Kingdom Fire Department

The Mushroom Kingdom Fire Department is, as their name would imply, the local fire department of the Mushroom Kingdom. All members of the crew appear to be Mushroom People.

The fire department appeared once in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Reign Storm". In the episode, Kooky Von Koopa's Robot Princess had ordered the fire department to extinguish every Fire Flower in the Mushroom Kingdom. Unaware that the Robot Princess was a fake, the fire department was seen soaking a group of Fire Flowers, assumedly killing them. This event was unusual, since Fire Flowers can survive being underwater in many games.

Mushroom Nanny

The Mushroom Nanny is an elderly Mushroom lady who works at the Mushroom Kingdom Orphanage, looking after orphaned Mushroom children.

In The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Tag Team Trouble", Toad had delivered a sack containing one million Gold Coins from Princess Toadstool to the Mushroom Orphanage, but fell asleep after ringing the doorbell, as he was too tired to continue. The Mushroom Nanny, along with two kids, answered the door. Although the kids laughed at Toad for sleeping, the Mushroom Nanny reminded them that he was doing them a huge favor by bringing them the money that the orphanage needed. She then took in the money without waking Toad.

After going through a lot of trouble, Toad got himself another one million Gold Coins, and donated it to the orphanage. The Nanny wasn't expecting another donation, but she was more than happy to accept the money. She then told Toad to give Princess Toadstool "double thanks" for her "double generosity," and closed the door on him, just before he realized the truth and fainted.

Mushroom Pilot

The Mushroom Pilot is a Mushroom Person who wears goggles and a scarf, who appeared in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Toad Warriors", the Mushroom Pilot was shown to be a member of a rebellion against King Koopa, who had stolen all the spaghetti sauce in Car Land.

The Mushroom Pilot first appeared when he aided Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool from being captured by a State Troopa; dive-bombing the State Troopa in his helicopter, the Mushroom Pilot let down a rope ladder from his helicopter, which he told Princess Toadstool to grabb on to, which she did, at the after being persuaded to by Mario, Luigi and Toad. With Princess Toadstool grasping his rope ladder, the Mushroom Pilot sped away to the Car Land rebellion's fort.

The Mushroom Pilot later appeared during King Koopa and the Koopa Pack's seige of the Rebel Fort, where the Mushroom Pilot was instructed by Princess Toadstool to teach Luigi how to fly his helicopter.

Mushroom Referee

The Mushroom Referee is a Mushroom man who works for the Mushroom Wrestling Federation.

The Mushroom Referee appears as a minor character in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Tag Team Trouble". When he is not hosting wrestling matches, he is apparently in charge of signing people up for them, as can be shown in the episode itself.

The Mushroom Referee hosted the Tag Team Wrestling Tournament which started before he was ready due to the fact that Cheatsy rang the bell early. Despite his job, the referee didn't seem to care about any of the tricks that the Sledge Bros. were pulling on Mario and Luigi during the match, as he almost declared the Sledge Bros. the winners.

He also didn't mind that the Mario Bros. made a comeback by using the Starmen that Princess Toadstool had brought them, which they used to defeat the Sledge Bros., as well as Bowser and Cheatsy.

With their opponents down, the referee declared Mario and Luigi the winners of the match. Before the referee could award them with their prize money, Toad took it right out of the referee's hands, as he was in a hurry to use the money in order to resolve a mixup that never even happened.

Mushroom Retainer

Mushroom Retainers are advisers to the leader of the Mushroom Kingdom. The most famous Mushroom Retainer is Toad. Mushroom Retainers assist Princess Peach in her administrative duties of the country. They first appeared in Super Mario Bros., where they were kidnapped along with the Princess by the evil King Bowser. One Mushroom Retainer appeared at the end of each castle and thanked Mario or Luigi for rescuing him. However, each one infamously stated that the princess was in another castle. In Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, the Mushroom Retainers keep the same role; however, there are more of them to save in this game. In the Super Mario All-Stars versions, more than one Mushroom Retainer can be saved at the same time after beating a castle (however, the number of Mushroom Retainers that can be saved depends on the world that Mario or Luigi is in).

Mushroom Retainers also appear in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. In this game, there are six retainers (with Toad being one of them). These Mushroom Retainers serve the Chancellor of the Mushroom Kingdom, as he is in charge of the kingdom until Peach returns. Since this game, the Mushroom Retainers have yet to make a returning appearance (with Toad being the only confirmed Mushroom Retainer who still makes an appearance within the games). However, it is likely that the Toad servants and guards of Princess Peach's Castle have taken over the roles of the Mushroom Retainers.

Mushroom Retainers (along with Toad himself) also make their appearance in Super Mario 3D Land, where they are kept in hostility by some False Bowsers. However, it should be noted that while they presume the same roles as their initial appearance, they are simply named as "Toads" as opposed to "Mushroom Retainers".


Muskular is one of the seven Star Spirits. As his name implies, Muskular is a very strong Star Spirit who likes to work out, first appearing in the original Paper Mario as the fourth Star Spirit to rescue from Bowser. He likes to wear a sailor's hat, meaning he could like the water or just chooses to wear the hat. This young Star Spirit is always full of energy.

He was guarded by General Guy and his troops in the Shy Guy's Toy Box. In Mario Party 5, Muskular is the guide of the mini-game mode.



Norman is a fictional Real World human who appears in one episode of The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 show, "Mush-Rumors". He is the father of the family of 4: himself, Missy, Bud, and his wife.

He is supposed to be taking Missy and Bud to Wild Waldo's One-of-a-Kind Amusement Park by a long road trip, but ends up driving into a Warp Zone that accidentally leads the family into the Mushroom World. Norman, distracted by the strange scenery, assumes it to be Iowa and he accidentally crashes into two walls of Blocks. The car almost gets totaled and Norman inspects the steaming engine, while a Mushroomer, who is fishing, goes screaming "ALIENS!" because of the strange vehicle, people, and the smoke coming out of the engine.

After a while later, when the Mushroomer is spreading the rumors, Norman jumps to the conclusion that he is in Nebraska, not Iowa. Mario and Luigi soon save the station wagon from the Doomship, but not the magnet that the Doomship sends out to abduct the station wagon.

King Koopa and his Koopalings are skeptical of Norman's family and Koopa thinks that the aliens are trying to disguise themselves to take over the Mushroom World. Norman is scared and he threatens to report "Waldo" (as Norman's wife call Koopa) to the traveling agent. But then, Kooky Von Koopa then takes Norman's family to his new invention, the Transmutational Brainwave Analyzer, to gain their thoughts about taking over the Mushroom World.

Norman gets really freaked out and he says, "I just got enough of this, this is not fun anymore!" Just after he says that, the Mario Bros. come and rescue his family and then offer the family to take them to the Warp Zone where they came from. Norman gets confused and asks Mario what is going on and who is he. Norman then drives out of the Warp Zone back into the real world where they came from. Then, while Norman is driving, Missy asks if they are there yet and Norman just slaps his face as a response!


Obi-Wan Toadi

Obi-Wan Toadi is a bearded Mushroom space colonist, who appears to run the Mushroom Colony, which is located on a desolate, desert-like planet. Obi-Wan Toadi only ever appeared in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Star Koopa".

When Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad arrived at the Mushroom Colony to try and save it from Darth Koopa's Birdo Ray, Princess Toadstool explained to Obi-Wan Toadi that they only had fifteen minutes left before the planet would be destroyed. Although Obi-Wan Toadi concluded that there wasn't enough time to fight back, Princess Toadstool begged for Obi-Wan Toadi to find a way. Obi-Wan Toadi explained that Mario's group would have to penetrate Koop Star in Mushroom Starfighters, so that someone could disable the Birdo Ray. Mario agreed, under the promise that he would be fed lunch afterwards.

Before Mario took off, Obi-Wan Toadi could sense that Mario was nervous, and presented him with a pizza to bolster his spirits (as well as his appetite). After saying "May the pasta be with you" to Mario, Obi-Wan Toadi saw Mario and his friends off, as they flew into space to take down Koop Star.

After Mario and his friends completed their mission, Obi-Wan Toadi, along with the rest of the Mushroom space colonists, congratulated them all upon their return. Mario, however, was more concerned with the lunch that Obi-Wan Toadi had promised him, causing everyone to laugh.


Oogtar is a cave boy resident of Dome City in Dinosaur World. He sometimes causes trouble and appears exclusively in the Super Mario World television series. He wears an animal skin cave man shirt and he has yellow hair. His nickname for Yoshi is "Dino Dude". He also acted as a replacement for Toad.

Oogtar is perhaps the mischief-maker of the Cave People, as he pulls all sorts of pranks on everyone. Yoshi seems to be his best friend, as evidenced by the fact that Oogtar is usually seen with him.

His first appearance was "Ghosts R Us". He hides out in the Enchanted Forest, with Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, and Yoshi trying to find them. While they're searching for them, Mario, Luigi, and Peach were kidnapped by the Magikoopa, Wizardheimer. Yoshi finds him and they set off to rescue Mario, Luigi, and Peach.

He appeared in other episodes like "Rock TV". Three episodes which prominently feature Oogtar are "The Night Before Cave Christmas" and "A Little Learning" and the one above, "Ghosts 'R' Us". The other episodes feature him but not as much. When he appears in other episodes, he's usually for a gag or part of a crowd shot. However in "Rock TV", it's revealed that Oogtar lives with his parents and that he has a sister.



Patches is a green parrot owned by the pirate Captain Clump, who often carries the bird on his shoulder. Like Captain Clump, Patches possesses an eyepatch and a peg leg. Patches and his owner appear in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Pirates of Koopa".


Pauline (initially known as Lady or the Lady in Japan) was Mario's original girlfriend and the original damsel-in-distress in the arcade game Donkey Kong who was captured by Donkey Kong (though the Donkey Kong Country games have stated that it is actually Cranky Kong who kidnapped her). She is one of the few damsels in the Mario series who is not a princess, but simply a normal citizen of the world.

Petey Piranha

Petey Piranha is an abnormally large Piranha Plant with petals on his head all around his chin. His first appearance is in Super Mario Sunshine, and since then he has gained much popularity and has since become a regular boss in Mario titles. He also consistently appears in sports games and spin-offs. Petey Piranha is thought to be a loyal follower of Bowser, but this is undetermined. It is quite likely that he is the ruler of his kind, as suggested by his Japanese name, Boss Pakkun, "Pakkun Flower" being the Japanese name for the Piranha Plant. He has multiple special powers that set him apart from normal Piranha Plants, including spitting Graffiti, flying and attacking with vines.

At the end of each battle with him, he is destroyed, but always seems to be resurrected to appear in another game (even being fought twice in Super Mario Sunshine).


Pine is a somewhat elderly Mushroom woodcutter who lives in a small village located in the Mushroom Woods. Not much is known about Pine, except that he has a wife and two children, the three of whom are extremely minor, unnamed characters.

Piranha Plants

Piranha Plants are large, carnivorous plants encountered throughout the Mario series; Piranha Plants are seemingly based-off Venus Flytraps, eating anything that approaches them.

The head of a Piranha Plant is most commonly either red or green with multiple other colors. Originally, Piranha Plants were found exclusively in pipes, either darting-out and biting anything near or remaining still and spitting fireballs. Currently, Piranha Plants can be found both in and out of pipes and their fire-breathing ability is now rarely used.

Polar Bears

Polar Bears are ferocious, white bears that live on the Mushroom World's North Pole. Koopa Klaus had a run-in with one after being defeated by Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, and Toad in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode, "Koopa Klaus." However, the aftermath of Koopa Klaus' run-in was never explained. Polar Bears are also implied to inhabit the Land of Ice, as Mario warned Luigi that he might get eaten by one if he waited around instead of coming along with Princess Toadstool and himself.

Polar Bears are also Ice Climber enemies and they appear in the Super Smash Bros. series, where they sport shades and pink bathing suits.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee's Adventure Mode, Polar Bears patrol horizontal platforms on the Icicle Mountain stage. On rare occasions, they may appear from Party Balls, but can easily be knocked off the screen with a few hits or one strong hit. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Polar Bear appears once again, in the form of a stage gimmick. On the Summit, the Polar Bear will occasionally stand on the top of the stage, causing it to sink into the water. This will allow a fish to jump out of the water, and attack the players who are running in the water.

In WarioWare: Twisted there is a microgame in which the player controls Popo, the boy of the two Ice Climbers. He is holding his hammer with his two hands, and he can smash it down to either the left side or the right side. On both sides, either Topis and/or Polar Bears will come attack Popo. Popo will need to hit them with his hammer. If he hits them, they waddle off the screen.

A cameo appearance from a Polar bear is also seen in Art Style: PiCTOBiTS as one of the pictures formed.

Prince Hugo

Prince Hugo the Huge is a giant-sized Toad and the newly elected prince of Giant Land who was featured in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Sneaky Lying Cheating Giant Ninja Koopas".

After his armies were decimated by giant-sized, ninja versions of Bully, Kooky, Big Mouth and Cheatsy Koopa, Prince Hugo called apon Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool to protect him, fearing that he was the next target of the Koopalings.

Unfortunately, Mario and Luigi were unable to protect Prince Hugo when the Koopalings attacked his castle, the two being preoccupied by the Angry Sun. After bashing their way into Prince Hugo's castle, Kooky and Cheatsy proceed to capture Prince Hugo, while Big Mouth and Bully Koopa captured Toad and Princess Toadstool.

Even as Mario and Luigi, having raccoon powers, appeared, they were useless in saving Prince Hugo, Princess Toadstool and Toad, as the two were easily defeated by the gigantic Koopalings. With Mario forced to retreat atop Prince Hugo's Parrot, the Koopalings transported Prince Hugo, Princess Toadstool, Toad and the recently captured Luigi to King Koopa's Castle.

It was in King Koopa's throne room that he inacted his plan to transform Prince Hugo into a poodle by using one of his wands. As a poodle, Prince Hugo was forced to suffer from the ridicule and mocking of King Koopa and the Koopalings and was seemingly unable to aid Mario, Princess Toadstool, Toad and Luigi in their battle against King Koopa, Cheatsy, Kooky, Bully and Big Mouth.

Eventually, after King Koopa and the Koopalings are defeated and forced to retreat from their castle, Prince Hugo is finally transformed back to normal by Princess Toadstool, by using King Koopa's wand, which had been dropped during the battle.

Having returned to normal, Prince Hugo began to gratefully thank Mario and shake his hand, accidentally flinging him to the ground after the spell that had made Mario gigantic was reversed by Princess Toadstool.

Prince Hugo's Parrot

Prince Hugo the Huge's Parrot is the somewhat moody and Elephant-sized pet macaw of Prince Hugo; Prince Hugo's parrot was featured in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Sneaky Lying Cheating Giant Ninja Koopas". Strangely, this macaw has three toes on each foot, unlike the usual four on regular macaws and most birds.

Prince Mushroomkhamen

Prince Mushroomkhamen is a minor character who appears in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode, "Mind Your Mummy Mommy, Mario".

Prince Mushroomkhamen was once the prince of Desert Hill, but is now a mummy confined to a golden sarcophagus. His parents are Queen Mushroomkhamen and King Mushroomkhamen. Ironically, Mario bears a great resemblance to Prince Mushroomkhamen. As the sarcophagus was never opened, the current, mummified state of Prince Mushroomkhamen was never actually seen.

The prince was stolen by Hip and Hop Koopa, which incited the rage of Queen Mushroomkhamen, who terrorized Desert Hill in a rage. She later saw Mario, mistook him for her son, and forced him to take his place. In the end, the prince was found and returned to his mother by Princess Toadstool, Luigi, and Toad.

Prince Pompadour

Prince Pompadour, the prince of an unconfirmed kingdom, was the object of Queen Rotunda's affections. He has a stereotypical southern United States accent.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Love 'Em and Leave 'Em", Queen Rotunda, a long-time admirer of Prince Pompadour, has her servant, Hildy create a Passion Potion, which would make Prince Pompadour fall in love with Queen Rotunda. Unfortunately, due to accident, Queen Rotunda ingest the Passion Potion instead of Prince Pompadour and falls in love with the first person she sees, Mario.

Later in "Love 'Em and Leave 'Em / Will The Real Elvis Please Shut Up!", Prince Pompadour appears as an attendant of Queen Rotunda's forced wedding to Mario. Before he can marry Queen Rotunda though, Mario loudly decides to tie his shoe, distracting everyone present and allowing Luigi to pour some Passion Potion in two nearby glasses.

Seeing that Luigi has poured some Passion Potion into a pair of glasses, Mario hastily grabs them and proposes a toast to Queen Rotunda and Prince Pompadour and gives the two the glasses. Drinking the Passion Potion, Queen Rotunda and Prince Pompadour instantly fall in love with one another.

Completely love-struck, Prince Pompadour asks Queen Rotunda to marry him, which Queen Rotunda agrees too. Hearing this, Prince Pompadour instantly embraces Queen Rotunda.

Princess Daisy

Princess Daisy (Japanese: デイジー姫, Deijī-hime) is the princess of Sarasaland and first appeared in the game Super Mario Land. She was created by Gunpei Yokoi, Shigeru Miyamoto's mentor. Although Daisy is the ruler of Sarasaland, her current place of residence is in the Mushroom Kingdom.

Daisy is known to be a tomboy, a fact first stated in her debut appearance. Daisy is represented by colors like yellow, orange and green. She has an affinity for flowers; her attire, special abilities, personal emblems and general representations are often flowers.

Years after her initial appearance, Daisy started appearing in more and more Mario games. This was due to the lack of human characters in the series. She now appears in the majority of Mario games, most often as a playable character. Daisy is good friends with Princess Peach, and she interacts positively with many other characters. This includes Luigi, who it has been hinted shares romantic feelings with Daisy. Daisy has appeared in over thirty Mario series games to date, and continues to do so regularly.

Princess Peach

Princess Peach Toadstool (Japanese: ピーチ姫, Pīchi-hime) is the princess of the Mushroom Kingdom. Peach first appeared in Super Mario Bros.. She was created by Shigeru Miyamoto to be the damsel-in-distress throughout most Mario games. She resides in her castle along with many Toads. Her kingdom is often attacked by the Koopa Troop, led by Bowser.

Peach has an affinity for the color pink, which accents her feminine personality and kind temperament. Peach's girlish nature and role as the damsel are often represented with her heart abilities and Princess emblems. Peach's initial design was said to represent her stubborn, yet cute, appearance.

Since her debut, Peach has appeared in installments related to the Mario game series for over 20 years. Peach is occasionally a key supporting character in mainstream games, and almost always playable in spinoff installments. Her most prominent appearance to date is as the heroine of Super Princess Peach.

Peach is portrayed as Mario's love interest and the frequent damsel-in-distress. She is also good friends with Luigi, Toad, and especially Princess Daisy.

Professor Fungi

Professor Fungi is a Toad professor in Mario Party 2. He can be found in Option Lab and can be seen typing the player's records on his typewriter (Or Computer as it's called in the game). The records Professor Fungi wrote contain how many times the player played the game-boards in the game, how many times the characters won, mini-game records that the characters will attempt to beat the record in the mini-game, and Driver's Ed records when the player unlocks the mini-game as the player can attempt to beat the record when playing the mini-game.

He also has an assistant that has a garbage can next to him. If the player wants to delete the player's save file, Professor Fungi will throw the player's records in the trash can.


Pronto is a native Mushroom who appeared in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!. He lives in Sudden Death Valley and is gifted with the ability to run swiftly with little effort. Although Pronto is shown to live in a tribe with other native Mushrooms, no other members were ever seen or referenced. Pronto is a spoof of Tonto from The Lone Ranger.


Punchinello is a somewhat minor villain who appears in the game Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. He's an explosives expert who likes to use Bob-ombs in battle. However, it should also be noted that Punchinello is absolutely insane and has a bit of a temper, a character flaw that eventually brings about his destruction. Apparently, Punchinello lives as an outcast in the Moleville Mines, being ostracized from society because of his bad disposition. When one of the seven Star Piece crashed into the mine, he claimed the rare artifact for himself. Strangely enough, Punchinello also wants to be famous one day (perhaps a result from his status as an outcast). Of course, when Mario and his allies arrive in Punchinello's lair looking for the Star Piece, the master of explosives sees an excellent opportunity. If he can defeat Mario (where so many others have failed), Punchinello realizes he will become famous all over the world.


Queen Bee

Queen Bee (also known as the Honey Queen) is the queen of all the bees in the universe. She is an extremely large bee and always speaks using nosism. She appears in Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2 where she rules over all the bees.

Queen Mushroomkhamen

Queen Mushroomkhamen is the mummified, ex-queen of Desert Hill, who appears in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode, "Mind Your Mummy Mommy, Mario".

Queen Mushroomkhamen appears to be the guardian of her tomb, where she and her son Prince Mushroomkhamen rest in mummy cases. Apparently, she will awaken if anyone enters the tomb, and will pursue any potential thieves.

When Hip and Hop Koopa heisted Prince Mushroomkhamen's mummy case from the tomb, Queen Mushroomkhamen awoke and chased after them, although she was unsuccessful in retrieving the case from them. Outraged at the loss of her son, Queen Mushroomkhamen went on a rampage through a local bazaar, scaring everyone out of the place.

When Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Toad arrived to stop Queen Mushroomkhamen, she wound up mistaking Mario for her son, due to the fact that the plumber bears a huge resemblance to him. Mario tried to get away from Queen Mushroomkhamen, but she ended up catching him, and brought him back to her tomb.

Queen Mushroomkhamen refused to listen to Mario babble on about how he wasn't her son, wrapped his body in canvas, and forced him to take a nap in her mummy case. Eventually, Queen Mushroomkhamen fell asleep, giving Mario a chance to escape from the tomb. However, Mario's getaway awoke Queen Mushroomkhamen, who broke out of the wall of the pyramid to chase after him.

Mario was then saved by his friends, who had successfully retrieved Prince Mushroomkhamen's mummy case from Castle Koopa. With her son back, Queen Mushroomkhamen scolded Mario, but was quickly sidetracked by Luigi, whom she mistook for her husband. Not wanting to suffer the same fate as Mario, Luigi ran off, while Queen Mushroomkhamen chased after him.

Eventually, Queen Mushroomkhamen learned that Luigi was not actually her husband, and presumably returned to her tomb to continue her eternal life of sleeping.

Queen Rotunda

Queen Rotunda is a gluttonous, extremely large and somewhat self-delusional woman who is the apparent ruler of the kingdom of Rotunda Land. Queen Rotunda is a parody of the queen from Alice in Wonderland.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Love 'Em and Leave 'Em" Queen Rotunda, desperate to gain the affection of an old friend, Prince Pompadour, had a hag named Hildy brew her a Passion Potion; Queen Rotunda's plan was to make Prince Pompadour drink this Passion Potion and make herself the first thing Prince Pompadour saw after drinking it, this would make Prince Pompadour fall madly in love with her.

It was shortly after Hildy completed her Passion Potion that Queen Rotunda was informed by one of her Beezo minions that thieves had been caught stealing her royal hot peppers. Outraged by the mere thought of someone stealing food from her, Queen Rotunda traveled to her throne room to see these thieves, taking some of Hildy's Passion Potion with her.

Arriving at her throne room, Queen Rotunda confronted her prisoners, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool. Before deciding what should be done with Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, Queen Rotunda decided to sample some of the cake she had her chef prepare for her impending wedding with Prince Pompadour, only to call it disgusting. After kicking the cart containing her cake away, Queen Rotunda sentenced Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool to be beheaded for stealing from her.

Before Queen Rotunda's sentencing could be carried out though, Mario managed to convince Queen Rotunda to allow himself to make her some "hot pepper pistachio ice cream" as the desert for her wedding; intrigued by the thought of tasting a new food, Queen Rotunda decided to allow Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool to live, at least, until after the hot pepper pistachio ice cream was made.

Later, after Mario had created the hot pepper pistachio ice cream, Queen Rotunda tried it, only to quickly be overcome by the sheer hot flavor of it; desperate for something to stop the burning in her mouth caused by the hot pepper pistachio ice cream, Queen Rotunda began to frantically hop around her throne room, asking for water. Mario, wanting to help Queen Rotunda, grabbed the nearby bottle of Passion Potion on the queen's throne and poured it into her mouth.

Unfortunately, Mario was the first thing Queen Rotunda saw after ingesting the Passion Potion, meaning she had fallen madly in love with him. After a short chase after a confused Mario, Queen Rotunda captured Mario by wrapping him in carpet and dragging him away to plan his and her wedding, after telling her Beezo guards to take Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool to her castle dungeons.

In preparation for their impending wedding, Queen Rotunda forced Mario to exercise vigorously, wanting Mario to become thinner for the wedding, as she simply continued to eat. Eventually, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool escaped Queen Rotunda's dungeon and Queen Rotunda, upon learning this, sent her Beezo guards to find and capture them as she began to set-up her wedding to Mario.

As her Beezo minions searched for Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, Queen Rotunda finally began her wedding to the hesitant Mario. It was only when he was being dragged down the aisle in her castle court yard by Queen Rotunda that Mario noticed Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool descending from a nearby tower. Seeing that Luigi had a flask of Passion Potion in his hand, Mario distracted Queen Rotunda by pretending to tie his shoe as Luigi poured his Passion Potion in two glasses on a table directly below him.

Seeing the Passion Potion in the two glasses, Mario grabbed them and proposed a toast to Queen Rotunda and the nearby Prince Pompadour and gave the two the glasses of Passion Potion, which they drank. Drinking the Passion Potion, Queen Rotunda instantly fell in love with Prince Pompadour and vice-versa; after being proposed to by Prince Pompadour, Queen Rotunda accepted his offer of marriage and the two embraced.


The Quirks are an alien species originating from The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!. Quirks are humanoid in appearance and have light-green skin; they also have two trumpet-like noses jutting from their faces. The Quirks are the only known, native inhabitants of the planet Quirk.

The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Stars in Their Eyes", it is revealed that the Quirks had been enslaved by the evil Moon Man Koopa, Astro Mouser and their Koopa Troopa minions; the Quirks were forced to mine the rocks of Quirk and transport them to Moon Man Koopa's Quirk Factory.

With the aid of two unnamed Quirks they had released from Astro Mouser's clutches, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool attempted to release the Quirks from Moon Man Koopa's enslavement of them.

After a lot of hard work, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool managed to repair their spaceship with help from the Quirks and battle Moon Man Koopa in his spaceship . After a long and narrow battle, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool managed to beat Moon Man Koopa, who next tried to land back on the planet Quirk.

Unfortunately for Moon Man Koopa, the Quirks, having been inspired by Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, rebelled against Moon Man Koopa and hummed a song loud enough through their noses to cause Moon Man Koopa's Spaceship to malfunction internally. The Quirks, free from Moon Man Koopa's and his henchmen's rule, were last seen waving goodbye to Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool as they zoomed away in their spaceship.

It is possible the Quirks had some sort of interconnected mind system, as they are shown to speak in complete and perfect unison on several occasions.



Raspberry was the name given to the bottom half of Bundt, similar to how Exor's mouth was named Neosquid. Of course, like Bundt, it appeared in Marrymore in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Raspberry is the weaker part of Bundt, it has lower HP, yet its attack is higher. It is also capable of different attacks, sharing the same weaknesses and strengths.

When Mario and company fought Bundt, the top half would go first and it was then and only then that Raspberry would be able to attack. After the heroes could defeat Raspberry, Booster ordered his minions snifits to take the monstrous cake and eat it up, ending the battle and Princess Toadstool's wedding.


Reindeer are a species of deer found on both Earth and Mushroom World. A small team of reindeer are owned by Santa Claus. These select reindeer are capable of flight, and are used by Santa to pull his sleigh across the world every Christmas Eve. Reindeer have made a few appearances on The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!. Both episodes were set during Christmas, and the reindeer in question belonged to Santa.

Reindeer first appeared during "Koopa Klaus", where they, along with everything else at Santa's workshop, had been frozen by Koopa Klaus' Ice Bombs. By the end of the episode, the reindeer were thawed out by the warmth of Toad's Christmas spirit, and were able to help Santa make his Christmas Eve run.

Also worth noting is that in this episode, Tryclyde took on the role of Randolph the Red-Nosed Tryclyde, a spoof of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Koopa Klaus also used two Albatoss to pull his sleigh in lieu of actual reindeer.

The next appearance of reindeer was in "Santa Claus Is Coming to Flatbush". During his arrival in Flatbush, Santa Claus had lost his sleigh, along with his reindeer, prompting him to take refuge at Mario Brothers Plumbing. However, the police eventually found the missing sleigh and informed Santa of the good news. On Christmas morning, Santa and his reindeer rode past Mario Brothers Plumbing to wish Mario and Luigi a Merry Christmas.

In the Super Mario World episode "The Night Before Cave Christmas, Winged Yoshi assumed the role of a reindeer in order to pull Santa Mario's sleigh.


Reznors are a quartet of fire-breathing dinosaurs on spinning platforms in Super Mario World. According to the instruction manual, they were cursed by Bowser. They spit fireballs at the player, who must hit their platforms from the bottom to defeat them. After two Reznors are knocked off their platforms, the floor will break away, exposing the molten lava below. If the player does not defeat the rest of the Reznors promptly, they will have to jump onto one of the abandoned platforms and fight from there. It is, however, possible to defeat all four without doing so.

They are the bosses of the many fortresses scattered through the areas of Dinosaur Land; the Vanilla Fortress, the Forest Fortress, the Chocolate Fortress, and the Valley Fortress.


Romano is an inhabitant of the Land of Romance, and is presumably an old friend of Princess Toadstool in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Mario and Joliet", Romano and his fiancée, Joliet, were forced to go underground when their fathers began a feud against one another, which culminated in Romano's father and Joliet's father canceling Romano and Joliet's wedding. With her and Romano's father feuding, Joliet sent a message to Princess Toadstool, asking for her help in resolving this feud.

Eventually, in the tunnels beneath the Land of Romance, Romano and Joliet met Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, who had fallen in the tunnels after an encounter with the Snifit, Albatoss and Bob-omb minions of Romano's father and Joliet's father. Greeting Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, Joliet and Romano revealed that the feud between their fathers was caused by King Koopa. Hearing Romano and Joliet's story, Princess Toadstool decided that, as the official princess of the Mushroom Kingdom and, thus, the Land of Romance, she would order the feud between Romano's father and Joliet's father to be ended immediately, so Romano and Joliet.

Princess Toadstool's plan actually does work, after some effort and Romano and Joliet's wedding proceeds as planned, with Mario, Luigi, Toad, Princess Toadstool and both Romano's father and Joliet's father, reluctantly, attending in a large church. Unfortunately, before the wedding can even begin, Toad informs everyone present that Joliet had been abducted as she was preparing for the wedding. Shocked at this revelation, Joliet's father accused Romano's father as his daughter's abductor and reinstated the feud between himself and Romano's father. As his father and Joliet's father had their Snifits attack one another, Romano lifts a trapdoor in the ground, which he, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool leap down into, just as the church they are in begins to collapse due to the exploding projectiles launched by the nearby Snifits.

In the sewers beneath the Land of Romance, Romano states that he, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool need to save Joliet and begins to wonder who had kidnapped Joliet; after some contemplating, Romano is told by Princess Toadstool, Mario, Luigi and Toad that King Koopa must have been the one who had taken Joliet. After telling Romano this, Mario, Luigi, Toad, Princess Toadstool, as well as Romano, went in search of Joliet.

After some traveling, Mario, Luigi, Toad, Princess Toadstool and Romano reached King Koopa's castle. At first, King Koopa's castle seemed unbreachable, though Mario eventually found a way to cross the castle's moat by using some nearby logs as stepping stones. Unfortunately, as he was using these logs to cross the moat to King Koopa's castle with Princess Toadstool, Toad and Luigi, Romano fell into the moat, attracting several nearby Trouters to him. Luckily, Romano manages to escape from the moat, narrowly avoiding a Trouter which was bounding towards. Shortly after rejoining Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, Romano, as well as Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, were captured by an Albatoss in a net.

Eventually, Romano, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool are placed in a dungeon tower of King Koopa and his minion, Grunt. After a lot of difficulty, Mario, Luigi, Toad, Princess Toadstool, Romano and Joliet, after tricking Grunt into crashing through the floor, escaped their cell after Mario used Joliet's bouquet of Fire Flowers to become Super Mario. As they were escaping though, Mario, Luigi, Toad, Princess Toadstool, Romano and Joliet encountered King Koopa and his Koopa Pack, consisting of Koopa Troopa.

As Mario distracted these approaching Koopa Troopas, Romano, Joliet, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, using the door of their former cell and some of Grunt's weights, managed to make a vehicle. Using this newfound mode of transportation, Romano, Joliet, Toad, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, after picking-up Mario, managed to escape from King Koopa's castle.

After this adventure, Mario, Luigi, Toad, Princess Toadstool, Romano and Joliet returned to the ruined church of the Land of Romance, where Romano and Joliet were finally wedded.

Romano's Father and Joliet's Father

Romano's Father and Joliet's Father are inhabitants of the Land of Romance and the parents of the lovers Romano and Joliet. Romano's Father and Joliet's Father appear to be complete opposites of one another, with Romano's Father being tall, skinny and clothed in blue clothing while Joliet's Father is short, fat and wears red clothing.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Mario and Joliet", Romano's Father and Joliet's Father began a violent feud against eachother due to King Koopa, who had caused Joliet's Father and Romano's Father to fight so he could make a large profit selling Beezos, Snifits, Albatosses and Bob-ombs to them. Due to this newly developed hatred between them, Romano's Father and Joliet's Father refused to allow their children, Romano and Joliet to marry.

This private war between Romano's Father and Joliet's Father was eventually ended by Princess Toadstool, who ordered Romano's Father and Joliet's Father to stop fighting and allow Romano and Joliet to marry. Not pleased by having their battle interrupted, Romano's Father and Joliet's Father were forced to comply with Princess Toadstool's decree and shook hands, with the two of them trying to crush each other's hands.

At the church where Romano and Joliet were to be married, the feud between Romano's Father and Joliet's Father started once more after Joliet's Father learned from Toad that his daughter had been kidnapped and blamed Romano's Father for doing it. As Romano's Father and Joliet's Father had their Snifit minions fight in a catastrophic battle that began to cause the church they were in to began to crumble.

Later, after Joliet was rescued from King Koopa, her real abductor, by Mario, Luigi, Toad, Romano and Princess Toadstool, Romano's Father and Joliet's Father appeared at the wedding of their offspring. Right after Romano and Joliet married, Romano's Father and Joliet's Father began to argue over who their children would live with, with this argument escalating into a large scale food fight.

Roy Koopa

Roy Koopa (known as Bully Koopa in the cartoons) is considered the third oldest of Bowser's eight children in the games and oldest in the cartoons. From what has been revealed about Roy's personality, he is more brawn than brains, preferring brute force over thinking things through. Despite this gruff, tough-guy demeanor, Roy originally wore a pink shell, which may be a reference to the fact that some (jokingly) say pink is a manly color. He now wears a purple shell. Roy also wears red sunglasses similar to his namesake, the legendary rock and roll musician, Roy Orbison.

Needing a magic carpet to defeat King Koopa and Lakitu, Mario, after some bartering, manages to buy a bug-infested carpet from Sam for the price of three washers and a stick of gum.

Eventually, Mario and Luigi's carpet is burnt to a crisp by King Koopa and his fireball-gun. Without a flying carpet beneath them, Mario and Luigi are sent plummeting downward, only to be narrowly saved by a trampoline used Princess Toadstool, Toad and several others.

This trampoline bounced Mario and Luigi back-up to Sam's lot; meeting Sam again, Mario and Luigi accused Sam of cheating them, by saying the flying carpet he sold them was fire-proof, despite it being easily burned by King Koopa.

Hearing that Mario and Luigi want to stop King Koopa, Sam happily gives the two a pair of flying carpets; Sam's reason for doing this being that he wanted to see King Koopa defeated for having stolen his fireball-gun equipped magic carpet.

Santa Claus

Santa Claus, (usually simply Santa, alternatively known as Nick) is a jolly man who gives presents to people on Christmas Eve. He has made a few appearances in the Mario series, and has received many allusions in games. Santa Claus lives in a home near his workship at the North Pole, where his elves make toys.

Scooter is a Mushroom inhabitant of the island of Waki-Waki, whose inhabitants, the Aloha People, he is the leader of.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Too Hot to Handle", Scooter was the one who greeted Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool on behalf of the Aloha People when they arrived on Waki-Waki. After giving Princess Toadstool a grass lei, Scooter quickly ran away to find shelter when the volcano of Waki-Waki began to cause an earthquake, which Scooter believed to be caused by the Fire God of Waki-Waki.

Later, after hearing an announcement from the Fire God (in actuality, King Koopa disguising himself as the Fire God) saying that Princess Toadstool needed to be thrown into the volcano by sundown or else Waki-Waki would be destroyed, Scooter ordered the capture of Princess Toadstool. Even though Mario tried to tell him that it wasn't the Fire God who ordered Princess Toadstool's sacrifice, it was King Koopa, Scooter ignored him and had Mario, Luigi and Toad thrown into a pit while he and his friend Bingo took Princess Toadstool to the mouth of the volcano, with the intent of throwing her in it.

Eventually reaching the mouth of the volcano, Scooter and Bingo prepared to throw Princess Toadstool into it, only for Bingo to remember and subsequently remind Scooter that the Fire God had ordered them to throw Princess Toadstool into the volcano at sundown. Hearing Bingo, Scooter decided to simply wait until sundown to throw Princess Toadstool into the volcano, not wanting to disobey and anger the Fire God. Despite Mario, Luigi and Toad's, who had escaped the pit they were in, protests, Scooter and Bingo eventually did throw Princess Toadstool into the volcano, after being tricked into thinking it was an early sundown by an impatient King Koopa.

After King Koopa and Fryguy were defeated and their Lava Machine were destroyed, Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool revealed to Scooter and the rest of the Aloha People that they had been manipulated by King Koopa into doing his bidding. After tearfully apologizing to Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool, Scooter deciphered a smoke signal meant for them from the real Fire God, who said he was alright and wished to throw a celebratory spaghetti luau for Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool. Along with the rest of the Aloha People, Scooter was seen in attendance at this spaghetti luau.

The player on the Steamer must press A repeatedly to try and catch the fleeing player.

The Stool Pigeon is a Tweeter who resides on the streets of Crime Land. Being an actual stool pigeon, he has insider information on all the crimes that are going on in the city. The Stool Pigeon only ever appeared during the events of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "The Unzappables".

Overhearing that Mario was in search of a stool pigeon, the Stool Pigeon attracted his attention, and offered to tell him about the next big robbery that Al Koopone was going to commit, for a price. Toad offered the Stool Pigeon a bag of chicken feed. While less than thrilled, the Stool Pigeon accepted the offer on account of being a bird, and told Mario's group that Al Koopone was going to rob the First Mushroom Bank, which turned out to be true.


The Subcons, also known as Subcon Fairies or the Muu people, are a peaceful fairy-folk that reside in the land of dreams. They are the guardians that protect the dream world. The Subcons are major species of the Dream World.

Submarine Captain

The Submarine Captain is a French naval officer who appeared in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Super Koopa". He lives in Paris.

Mario and Luigi ran into the captain by accident, because a police helicopter they were riding in to face Raccoon Koopa was knocked down by him, landing in the Seine. The captan's submarine surfaced for the helicopter to land on as it hit the water, and the captain himself was hastily introduced to Mario and Luigi.

The captain tried to get himself, Mario and Luigi away from Raccoon Koopa by submerging the submarine, but Bowser became Frog Koopa in order to swim after them. Frog Bowser succeeded in kicking the submarine ashore, and apprehended Mario, Luigi and the captain by throwing them in the Bastille.

Until Toad came to the rescue, the captain waited around in the group's jail cell while Luigi unsuccessfully tried to dig a way out. When Toad arrived, he dropped off a birthday cake with a Super Block hidden inside. Inside the block was a Super Leaf, which Mario used to become Raccoon Mario, and was able to use his tail to break out of the cell, freeing himself, Luigi and the captain. After Toad presented Luigi with a Super Leaf of his own, he and Mario flew off, while the captain saluted them for saving his native country of France.


The Sultan is the ruler of Desert Land in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, and is featured in the episode "The Beauty of Kootie".

The Sultan, while taking a bath in his jacuzzi, causes oil to come gushing out of the faucet. To deal with the problem, the Sultan calls Mario and Luigi over to fix his palace's plumbing. It turns out that his palace's plumbing had been sabotaged by Cheatsy and Kootie Pie Koopa, so that they could steal his oil for the Doomship.

His palace gets destroyed by the end of the episode, but Mario uses a Magic Wand left by the Koopa Kids to rebuild it.

Sultan Pasbah

Sultan Pasbah is a short, obese man and is apparently the ruler of an unnamed desert region, as evidenced by his sultan title and palace.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Mario's Magic Carpet" Sultan Pasbah, after Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool landed in his palace due to one of his traps, had them all taken captive. Having Mario, Luigi and Toad taken to his slave's quarters, Sultan Pasbah had Princess Toadstool taken to his harem.

Eventually, Sultan Pasbah became annoyed by Princess Toadstool constant acting out and put out an advertisement for her, planning to sell her to the highest bidder; that bidder eventually manifested itself as King Koopa.

As Sultan Pasbah and King Koopa continually debated over the price of Princess Toadstool, they were overcome by the stench accidentally conjured by a genie, Mario, Luigi and Toad, who had escaped; King Koopa, apparently seeing his chance, stole Princess Toadstool away from Sultan Pasbah while he was distracted by the horrific odor of the genie.

Swiss Cheese Alps Mayor

The Swiss Cheese Alps Mayor is a mustached Mushroomer who inhabits a village in the Swiss Cheese Alps, which he is the mayor of.

In The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Koopenstein", the Swiss Cheese Alps Mayor, when Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool arrived in the village, presented them with the key to the village in a show of appreciation for them having come to defeat Dr. Koopenstein. After giving this key to Princess Toadstool the village key, the Swiss Cheese Alps Mayor led the cheer for Mario, Luigi, Toad and Princess Toadstool after they promised to do their best in defeating Dr. Koopenstein.

Later on, after Dr. Koopenstein was transformed into the Koopenstein Monster and abducted Princess Toadstool, the Swiss Cheese Alps Mayor frantically ran to tell Mario, Luigi and Toad that the Koopenstein Monster was attacking his village; after alerting Mario, Luigi and Toad to this, the Swiss Cheese Alps Mayor led them to the village, where the Koopenstein Monster was going on a rampage. The Swiss Cheese Alps Mayor apparently stood on the sidelines or took cover when Mario, Luigi and Toad began their battle with the Koopenstein Monster, as he wasn't seen in the entire duration of the battle.

When the Koopenstein Monster and Mouser were defeated by Mario and Dr. Koopenstein's own Robot Monster Troopa, the Swiss Cheese Alps Mayor presented Mario with a reward for his help in saving the Swiss Cheese Alps, a pizza covered in hole-filled cheese, which Mario thought were bite marks.



The T-Rex is, as its conjectural name would imply, is a purple Tyrannosaurus Rex. The T-Rex was featured as a recurring antagonist in the Super Mario World animated series.

In "Party Line" the T-Rex appears near the beginning of the episode, where it attempts to attack Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and Princess Toadstool. Before the T-Rex can eat them though, Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and Princess Toadstool manage to evade the T-Rex by hiding behind a rock.

The T-Rex appears later in the episode rampaging through Dome City, which is nearly defenseless due to the cavepeople inhabitants being to busy gossiping on their new phones to fight the T-Rex off.

Having Luigi and Princess Toadstool run off to warn the cavepeople of the T-Rex, Mario goes to fight the ferocious dinosaur himself. Tugging on the T-Rex's tail right before it's about to devour Oogtar the Caveboy, Mario manages to get the annoyed T-Rex to chase him.

Running after Mario, the T-Rex is bashed in the chest when Mario bounces through the air after running into and bouncing off a vine. Though winded, the T-Rex tries to lunge at Mario, who jumps out of the way, causing the T-Rex to fall to the ground. Getting-up, the T-Rex sees Mario hitting several ? Blocks looking for an item to help him in battle. Unfortunately for Mario, all he gets from the ? Blocks are coins, which Mario feebly throws at the T-Rex. Eating these coins, the T-Rex quickly spits them out and throws one at Mario's head, making the plumber dizzy.

This coin bounces off Mario's head and hits a nearby ? Block, which releases a feather. A disoriented Mario tries to grab this feather, but fails and falls to the ground. On the ground, Mario inexplicably has a Starman in his hand, which he uses to become super-powerful.

With his newfound super-strength, Mario grabs the T-Rex by the snout and launches it into space, where he continually soars, never to be heard from again.

It is later revealed in the episode "Mama Luigi" that Luigi and Yoshi had met the T-Rex before. Shortly after finding the recently hatched Yoshi, Luigi is attacked by the T-Rex and its blue friend, also a Tyrannosaurus, in the Lava Pits.

Thinking Yoshi to be the baby of the T-Rex and its friend, Luigi tries to hand Yoshi over to the two dinosaurs. Luigi quickly grabs Yoshi away after the T-Rex tries to eat him. An enraged T-Rex tries to eat Luigi, who narrowly escapes the T-Rex and its friend by jumping across a river of lava with Yoshi.

The T-Rex also appears in the opening and ending sequences of Super Mario World; here, the T-Rex, after crushing a caveperson's car, attempts to eat Luigi, who is saved just in by a vine-riding Oogtar the Caveboy.

The Big Boo

The Big Boo is a recurring boss who first appeared in Super Mario World. He is a translucent Big Boo and secret villain of the game. Despite that, he looks identically like all Big Boos without any differences from them, except that he is white in Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World which makes him more different. The Big Boo is actually the first notable character to be a ghostly boss, the leader of the Boos, and the second biggest Boo before the Bigger Boo.

The Mushroom Marauder and Jake "The Crusher" Fungi

The Mushroom Marauder and Jake "The Crusher" Fungi are two large Mushroom men who are professional wrestlers, and are Toad's cousins. There is a good chance that they are brothers.

The Mushroom Marauder and Jake only appeared in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Tag Team Trouble". Because he fell asleep, Toad feared that Bowser had stolen a one-million Gold Coin donation from him, which actually went to the Mushroom Kingdom Orphanage. In an attempt to earn back the money, Toad went to see his cousins, who agreed to enter the Tag Team Wrestling Tournament for him, so that they could win him the prize money.

When Toad went to sign up his cousins, Bowser and Cheatsy were also there to sign up the Sledge Bros. Although the Sledge Bros. knocked Toad and his cousins around at first, the Mushroom Marauder and Jake rolled into the Sledge Bros., giving Bowser the impression that his team was going to lose.

Not wanting to disappoint Bowser, Cheatsy sneaked into the Mushroom Castle were The Mushroom Marauder and Jake were sleeping, put them under hypnosis, and ordered them to not wake up for two whole days. Toad tried everything to wake them up, but he wasn't successful. However, Mario and Luigi agreed to enter the match for Toad in place of his cousins.

Although the Mushroom Marauder and Jake were never seen again, it can be assumed that they woke up after the match and went back to their regular lives.


Thwomps are animate cinder-blocks found mostly in the Mushroom Kingdom. They are spike-encrusted living stones that are usually rectangular in shape and made their first appearance in the game Super Mario Bros. 3. They typically attempt to fall on and flatten or squash whoever passes below them, although some move horizontally or diagonally as well. They can only be defeated by being touched by Mario when he is powered-up with a star, uses hammers as Hammer Mario, uses a tail swipe as Raccoon or Tanooki Mario, or when Mario is giant. It is suggested in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time that Thwomps may in fact be born from volcanoes.


Toad (Japanese: キノピオ, Kinopio) is Princess Peach's attendant and a long time protector of the Mushroom Kingdom. He is actually a singular character among an entire species of look-alikes (much like the Yoshi is to the Yoshi species). He usually has the role of a supporting character who tries to help Mario on his adventures; however, he is occasionally a playable character and a main protagonist at times as well. Despite being reliant on Mario and the other heroes on times of disaster, Toad has made his own fair share of heroic acts such as in his starring role in Wario's Woods where he saves the Mushroom Kingdom from Wario's antagonistic rule, and his status as one of four hero characters in Super Mario Bros. 2. He once made many appearances in the mainstream Mario games, but has lately been reduced to being a playable character in the Mario spin-off titles, while Toadsworth has taken over many of his previous roles.

Toad's cousin

Toad's cousin is a turban-wearing Mushroom boy, who is a cousin of Toad. He makes a living selling all sorts of maps in Desert Land.

In The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Mind Your Mummy Mommy, Mario", Queen Mushroomkhamen mistook Mario for her son, and took her back to her tomb. Not knowing how to find their way through the tombs of Desert Land's pyramids, Princess Toadstool commented that they needed a map of the pyramids if they were ever going to find Mario.

The mention of maps reminded Toad of his cousin, and he brought Princess Toadstool and Luigi to see his cousin. Wanting to make several sales, Toad's cousin advertised all sorts of maps to Princess Toadstool, including maps to the pyramids, mummy tombs, and even the houses of Mushroom celebrities. In the end, he simply sold a map to the mummy tombs to Princess Toadstool.

Although Toad's cousin was never seen again, Luigi announced that he needed to find him again, so that he could buy a map to "someplace else", due to the fact that Queen Mushroomkhamen had mistaken him for her husband, and was about to chase him throughout Desert Land.


Toadette (Japanese: キノピコ Kinopiko) is a recurring Toad character in the Mario series. Originally introduced as a playable racing partner for Toad in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, she has since appeared in other games as a playable character and has played supporting roles in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, and Mario Party DS. While she has very similar traits to other characters, she is easily the most commonly reoccurring female Toad in the Mario series. Toadette has been shown to be on good terms with such characters as Peach, Toad, Toadsworth, and even Mario.


Toadsworth is an elderly Toad and Princess Peach's longtime steward, first appearing in Super Mario Sunshine, where he comes along with Princess Peach and Mario to Isle Delfino. He is sixty years old, according to an e-mail in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He is constantly worrying about the princess and takes care of the Toads. He has an English accent and often utters old-fashioned English phrases like "Tally-ho!" and "Pip pip!", most of which made their debut in Mario Party 7. Toadsworth is voiced by Charles Martinet, the same voice actor as Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi and Baby Wario.


Tryclyde, also known as Triclyde, is a large, three-headed snake capable of breathing balls of fire. He is also an inhabitant of Subcon, the land of dreams. His design is based on the mythical Lernaean Hydra, a giant, multi-headed serpent.


Tumble is the character that replaces Toad as the host of mini-games in Mario Party 3. His appearance is actually very similar to that of a Toad, but he wears gloves and has a dice on his head instead of a mushroom cap. He also happens to have no arms, legs, or even a body.

In addition to explaining mini-games and controls and getting a Battle Royal or Duel Board started, Tumble will also show the players the new location of the Millennium Star each time it is moved. He (along with the Millennium Star himself) also gives out Star Stamps whenever a player has won at a board.

At the end of the game, the top of Tumble's dice cap opens to reveal the real Millennium Star.

Tumble re-appears as the host of the Shroom City mode in Mario Party Advance. He is also said to be one of Shroom City's guides; he kept this role by the end of the game (which describes him as a "beloved Shroom guide"). Tumble actually did little other than the average host-type things in Mario Party Advance; other than this, though, he can be summoned by landing on a Mushroom Space, which will randomly trigger an appearance of either him or Koopa Kid. Tumble's Mushroom Space-related role shows him to be much more merciful than Koopa Kid, who will take a Mushroom away if a minigame is lost and will give the player one if it's won. He will give the player two Mushrooms if they win and none if the player loses.


Twila is a character who resembles the moon in the Party World. She gets into a fight with the sun, Brighton, in the game Mario Party 6. She controls the board for three turns and switches off with Brighton after the three turns are up. However, in Clockwork Castle, a player who lands on the Green Space at the top of the board has a 50/50 chance to change night to day instantly. She also changes in some courses how much stars are worth, and sometimes she makes new passages open.

Once all pages in the Miracle Book are bought, Brighton and Twila see how much work everyone has done to fill the Star Bank. They both make up and promise to get along. As an award for their hard work, the sun and moon scatter the Stars across the sky, being seen miles away. And so, she ended her feud with Brighton. Twila, as well as Brighton, made an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as stickers that can be collected. Twila also hosts Mini-Game Mode, Options Mode and the quiz game Speak Up.

Twila's name is a pun on "twilight", owing to her resemblance to the moon.

Tyrannosaurus Twins

The Tyrannosaurus Twins are two Rex-like wrestlers hired by Bowser to defeat Mario and Luigi in the Super Mario World episode "Rock TV".

Not much is revealed about the Tyrannosaurus Twins, not even their real names. One of the Tyrannosaurus Twins is extremely large and green, with red stripes on his face while the other is small, orange and has hair.

After being forced into a wrestling ring by Bowser to fight the Tyrannosaurus Twins, Mario is approached by the larger, green Tyrannosaurus Twin. Feigning kindness by trying to get Mario to shake his hand, the green Tyrannosaurus Twin proceeds to grab Mario and twirl him around in the air when the plumber does try to shake the dinosaur's hand.

Watching helplessly as his brother is pulverized, Luigi is sneak-attacked by the orange Tyrannosaurus Twin, who proceeds to grab Luigi and toss him through the air, where he collides with Mario. The Tyrannosaurus Twins subsequently bodyslam Mario and Luigi, pinning them to the ground.

It is only through the aid of Princess Toadstool and Yoshi that Mario and Luigi manage to get free from underneath the Tyrannosaurus Twins; having hit a ? Block, Princess Toadstool released a swarm of miniature Marios, which proceeded to cause havoc, distracting the Tyrannosaurus Twins.

Having gained a Cape Feather, Mario transforms into Cape Mario and proceeds to fling the green Tyrannosaurus Twin through the air with his newfound abilities. After having beaten the green Tyrannosaurus Twin, Mario aids Luigi in pinning the orange Tyrannosaurus Twin to the ground, defeating him and apparently knocking him unconscious.

The Tyrannosaurus Twins were apparently crushed under the debris of Bowser's collapsing television set-like structure when Yoshi weakened the structure's support by eating pieces of it.




Valentina was first introduced and only seen in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Valentina is a woman who wears a white dress, has what appears to be a parrot on top of her head in place of hair, and is always seen carrying a martini glass.


Waldo the Wizard

Waldo the Wizard, also known simply as Waldo, is a wizard who lives in his own castle, which is presumably located either in or near the Mushroom Kingdom. Waldo speaks with a British accent, and as such, uses terms such as "jolly" and "cad." He is also shown to be rather skilled, as he can cast spells or create potions just by merely waving his hands around, and is also capable of flying.


Waluigi (Japanese: ワルイージ, Waruīji) is Luigi's evil counterpart and nemesis, and Wario's partner. Waluigi made his debut in Mario Tennis, and since then he has made playable appearances in many of the Mario series spin-off titles. He has been voiced by Charles Martinet ever since his debut.

The details of Waluigi's past are unclear since he has no confirmed background, although, he has evidently been antagonizing the Mario Bros., especially Luigi, for quite some time before his debut as seen in the opening of Mario Tennis, where he and Luigi confront each other.


Wario (Japanese: ワリオ, Wario) is the obese, yet surprisingly muscular, hot-tempered, greedy anti-hero, and Mario's yellow-and-purple clad rival. Wario's greed pushes him to commit malevolent acts, such as the seizing of Mario's Castle. Due to his money grubbing personality, he is disliked by many citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom. Wario has also proven to be very cunning as he has tricked Mario on more than a few occasions. He often goes out on his own adventures, from stealing treasure to running a minigame making company. Wario has helped heroes of the Mushroom Kingdom on a few separate occasions as well.

Wario is a creation of the late game developer and Game Boy creator Gunpei Yokoi and designed by Hiroji Kiyotake. His name is a combination of Mario and the Japanese word warui (悪い), meaning "bad".

Wendy O. Koopa

Wendy O. Koopa (known as Kootie Pie Koopa in the cartoons) is one of the Koopalings and the only female of the group. She is Bowser's fifth child. Wendy is fairly materialistic and greedy, and is, more or less, a spoiled brat with a quick temper, often going into a rage over little things. She was named after famous musician Wendy O. Williams, lead singer of the punk band the Plasmatics.


A Whale is a large marine mammal mostly found on Earth, but first appeared in the Mario game Super Mario Bros. 2.


Whomps are large, stone enemies that resemble stone rectangles with faces, hands and arms, and feet (without legs). They are the minions of Bowser and the Whomp King. They debuted in the game Super Mario 64. Whomps are related to Thwomps, enemies that are also made out of stone.

Whomp King

Whomp King is a character in the Mario series. He is the king of all the Whomps. The Whomp King's first appearance was in Super Mario 64 as the boss of the Whomp's Fortress.


Wigglers (also known as Caterpillars) are a species resembling large real-world caterpillars. They first appeared in Super Mario World, where they have a yellow coloration when calm, but turn red and run about quickly if jumped on. Wigglers in all their types are easily identifiable by the characteristic flower or other plant growing from their head.

In Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, a species known as Flutters made an appearance, which confirmed that Wigglers are indeed caterpillars.

Wizard King of the West

The Wizard King of the West is a king who appears only in the The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, in the episode, "A Toadally Magical Adventure".

He is first mentioned by his messenger arriving at the Ace Magic Wand Factory, where his wand is made and ready to go. The wandsmith delivers it to the messenger and the messenger goes through a trap door to deliver it to the Wizard King of the West. The Wizard King of the West is watching this by his crystal orb, impatient now to see his wand done by commenting, "I've been waiting for that slowpoke to finish that wand for 50 years," meaning he ordered the construction of it 50 years ago.

After commenting that, he sees Cheatsy in the crystal ball plotting to steal that wand by watching the actions through a telescope. After seeing that, he plans to send Mario and Luigi an urgent message.

Mario and Luigi happens to be at their house, trying to drain all the water in the bathtub. Then, the Wizard King of the West's message appears and Luigi happens to notice it. Luigi mentions this fact to Mario and Mario comes to inspect it. The Wizard King of the West urgently tells Mario and Luigi about the Koopa's plot of stealing the wand. Toad accidentally steps on the wrench and the message is drained, but not before the Wizard King of the West tells where the ambush site is: a waterfall pond.

Shortly after Mario and Luigi foil the Koopas' ambush plan, the wand safely arrives at Mario and Luigi house. Toad wants to use the wand but the messenger says that only qualified members are going to be using the want. The Wizard King is watching this event through his crystal ball. He agrees with the messenger and he sets out to get his wand by riding on a snail, which he arrives at the end of the episode.

He arrives when the Koopas leaving and Kootie Pie saying, "Let's koop out of here," and the Wizard King agreeing with it. The Wizard King then uses a transporting laser on his wand (which is on Toad's hand at the time) to make the wand in his possession. He then uses the wand to lend the Mario Bros. a "hand" and then transforms the Pipe Monsters Toad created into a hand that grabs the Koopas and sends them hurtling back to their castle.

The Wizard King then reveals at the end of the episode he wants the wand to toast sausages and accepts Toad's apology for messing around with his wand by stating he only cares if he gets his wand.


Wizenheimer is a Koopa Wizard with a booming voice. He was the main antagonist of the Super Mario World episode "Ghosts 'R' Us".

Mario, Luigi, and Princess Toadstool first encounter Wizenheimer while searching the Enchanted Forest for Oogtar the Caveboy, who is missing. After bumping into Wizenheimer in the forest, the Koopa Wizard forces Mario, Luigi, and Toadstool into a nearby Warp Tube, threatening to blow the trio up with a Bob-omb if they didn't obey.

This Warp Tube led to Wizenheimer's Haunted House, the basement of which he shackled Mario, Luigi, and Princess Toadstool in.

Wizenheimer later captured Oogtar, who had attempted to break-into his Haunted House. Wizenheimer was later defeated when Yoshi, after facing his fears and venturing into Wizenheimer's Haunted House, eats the Koopa Wizard's wand.

After having his wand eaten, Wizenheimer was bonked on the head by the recently released Mario and fell unconscious into his basement.


Woody is a kind, smiling, sentient tree that appears in the Mario Party series. He first appears in Mario Party 2, where he resides in Mini-Game Park. After the player plays a Mini-Game, Woody will offer that game for sale when the player visits him. The player can use his Coins to purchase the games. When a Mini-Game is purchased, it shows up in Mini-Game Park. When the player warps into the park, there he can meet the trees that hold games that can be bought. There is one tree for each Mini-Game type. Once all the mini-games have been purchased, Woody will be bearing a pear on his left, which when selected, will take the player to a whole new mini-game, Driver's Ed. Woody has an evil twin, known as Mean Woody. In Mario Party 3 Woody has his own board called Woody Woods. This is where Mean Woody is introduced.

In Mario Party 6, in Towering Treetop, Woody can be seen at the top of the giant tree. In daytime he is good; however, in nighttime Mean Woody replaces him. Apart from the similar names and appearances however, there is no evidence for both of these being the same character.




Yaridovich is one of Smithy's lieutenants in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, and a master of disguise. He is a shape-shifter and can assume many sizes and shapes. Yaridovich can even impersonate whole populations by splitting himself into multiple bodies. However, Yaridovich cannot change his color, and as such, any form he takes exists in shades of gray and red. In his true form, Yaridovich resembles a spear. His name itself comes from a kind of Japanese spear known as a "yari", a certain type of spear; it is also a Russian patronym that means "Son of Yarid."


Yoshi (sometimes specified as Green Yoshi) is one of the heroes of the Mushroom World and an ally of Mario and Luigi. He is a member of the Yoshi species and has aided his brethren in saving their homeland on multiple occasions. Yoshi has also saved other kingdoms from the villain Bowser as well. In his youth, Yoshi managed to rescue and protect Baby Mario and Baby Luigi from the wrath of Kamek and the Koopa Troop. According to Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Yoshi is the only one of his species who can speak the language of the other characters. However, in later games, he doesn't speak the language (as shown in Mario Superstar Baseball and Mario Super Sluggers). This is contradicted once again, in Super Mario Galaxy 2, when Yoshi speaks in perfect English. Yoshi made his very first appearance, game-wise, in the Super Mario World level, Yoshi's Island 2. The roles he plays in the series varies from game to game.



Zero is the masked hero of El Desert Land. She is a rather experienced swordswoman, and, although known as an outlaw, she is only labeled so because of El Koopitan being the "law" force. Zero only appears in a The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "The Mark of Zero." She is a parody of Zorro, and looks similar to him. She marks all of her enemies with her signature "0" mark, another trait she shares with Zorro (his "Z"). At first everyone thought that Zero was a man; however, the end of the episode reveals that Zero is female and that she is the girl at the beginning of the episode who sold Mexican food to the brothers.

In the episode she is kidnapped by El Koopitan and the Koopa Pack, consisting of several Koopa Troopas, led by Mouser. The town of El Desert Land is not safe without her, so Mario and Luigi dress up as Zero and go save Zero from El Koopitan. She is saved from El Koopitan and El Koopitan runs out of town at the end of the episode.


Ztars (also known as Shadow Stars in Mario Party 6, Dark Stars in the North American version of Mario Party 7, and Z-Stars in the PAL versions of Mario Party 7) are black counterparts to Stars found mostly within the Mario Party series. Instead of granting the player a Star, it takes away one in the player's possession. Its name is a play on the words "czar" and a corruption of "Star".
