Fun Facts About Super Mario
Mario is in his mid-20s
When you think of Mario, you probably have a certain image in your head. If you’re like a lot of folks, you see a cartoony middle-aged plumber with a fungus addiction. But according to Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Mario, you might have been misinterpreting Nintendo’s iconic mascot for decades.
In a recently re-published interview from 2005, Miyamoto stated that there weren’t any strict guidelines or definitions when it came to Mario lore. Super Mario Odyssey Plush
“I think it was fortuitous that we didn’t put any restrictions on Mario as a character (…) Normally when you create a character and present him to the world, all the details get filed in: what’s his favourite colour? what kind of food does he like to eat? But aside from the fact that he’s about 24-25 years old, we didn’t define anything else.”
Though Mario has appeared in games for over 30 years, he’s apparently still young enough to stay on his parents’ health insurance. That’s probably a good thing, since the Mushroom Kingdom benefits package is mostly comprised of cake and kisses on the cheek. Super Mario Odyssey Plush
“Yoshi” isn’t Yoshi’s full name
There are a lot of things we just sort of accept about Yoshi. For one, the fact that he hatches fully-formed out of the egg, complete with a built-in saddle. That, and we just sort of pretend every dinosaur that comes out of a polka-dotted egg is named “Yoshi,” even if that was the name of the guy that got dumped in a bottomless pit two levels back. We can ignore these existential questions because hey, it’s a video game.
No one was really asking what Yoshi’s full name was, but apparently someone at Nintendo thought that was a more important issue to address than a dinosaur being born with shoes. An internal character guide unearthed by Blake Harris revealed something startling about Yoshi. Super Mario Odyssey Plush
So, Yoshi’s full name is… “T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas.” The T. is left ambiguous, though we could guess it stands for “Transportation” or “Tyrannosaurus” or “Travis.”
This has never been referenced by any official Nintendo game, but the fact of the matter is it’s still on an official Nintendo document. Of course, if everything here is true, that would also mean that Mario really is a member of the species “homo nintendonus,” in which case we’d have a lot more questions.
The levels in Super Mario Bros. were designed by hand on graph paper.
The tiny team of designers responsible for the creation of Super Mario Bros. on the NES, Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka, drew the levels on “huge pieces” of graph paper to deliver to the programming team. Super Mario Odyssey Plush
