Before ''Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'', but after his run on ''WesternAnimation/SaturdaySupercade'', {{Mario}} starred in this obscure 1986 Japanese film, titled ''Super Mario Bros.: Peach-hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen!'' (translated: ''The Great Mission to Save Princess Peach!''), a loose AnimatedAdaptation of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros''. While this film is ''very'' obscure, it's notable for being the very first full-length film adaptation of a video game, preceding the American ''Film/SuperMarioBros'' by approximately seven years.

* JapaneseSiblingTerminology: Luigi refers to Mario as "aniki". The rough English translation is "bro", which is what Luigi calls Mario in the translated games.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Mario is deeply adamant about [[ForGreatJustice honor]] in his quest to save Peach, in contrast to his whimsical attitude seen from ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' onward. Luigi isn't cowardly like he is in more modern portrayals, instead being defined by his {{greed}}, a trait better associated with Wario. One characterization that ''is'' consistent with the later franchise is Bowser's AffablyEvil personality, particularly his attitudes towards Peach and his [[spoiler:[[GoKartingWithBowser happily working alongside Mario and Luigi as a grocer in the end]]]].

One night, while playing his [[UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem Famicom]], Mario gets an unexpected visit from the lovely Princess Peach, who is on the run from evil tyrant King Koopa. King Koopa then shows up and kidnaps her, leaving behind the pendant that she always wears. The next day, a little dog called Kibidango shows up at the grocery store owned by Mario and his brother Luigi (yes, they're grocers in this movie) and takes the jewel. The Mario Bros. give chase after him and wind up in the Mushroom Kingdom, where they meet the wise old Mushroom Hermit. The Mystic tells them that they've been brought to the Mushroom Kingdom to rescue Princess Peach, whom King Koopa intends to marry on Friday the 13th, and save the people whom King Koopa has turned into useless objects. The Mario Bros. embark on this journey, along the way gathering the [[RuleOfThree three powerful items]] of the Super Mushroom, the Flower, and the Star, which help them in their quest. They make it to King Koopa's castle just in time to [[WeddingSmashers crash the wedding]], Mario defeats King Koopa, and it turns out that Kibidango is actually Prince Haru, Peach's previously unmentioned fiance, much to the disappointment of Mario, who had fallen in love with the Princess himself.

* TrickingTheShapeshifter: Peach attempts this by asking King Koopa to transform into things to entertain her. When he turns into a teddy bear, she grabs him and locks him in a chest. A few seconds later, he returns to his regular form and bursts out of the chest, telling her "nice try".

* ArtEvolution: Luigi is designed with the taller and slimmer look he sported in the games since the U.S. version of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'', but his color scheme is a bit different from his later look (in the film, he wears a yellow shirt with a blue hat and overalls, mainly the result of no one having any idea what Luigi was supposed to look like at the time).
