One night, while playing his [[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 [[spoiler:it turns out that Kibidango is actually Prince Haru, Peach's previously unmentioned fiancé, much to the disappointment of Mario, who had fallen in love with the Princess himself]].

* BittersweetEnding: The fact that [[spoiler:Kibidango/Prince Haru is actually Peach's fiancé [[DidNotGetTheGirl upsets not only Mario]], but [[ShipSinking also the Mario/Peach fans]].]] Needless to say, the fact that [[spoiler:Prince Haru]] was never incorporated into the games should speak volumes about how many fans were upset by that revelation even back then, it could also explain why the movie has become so obscure, that it never had an overseas release.
