Added DiffLines:

* WhiteAndBlackMorality: The usual basic shade of conflict in the series. The Mario Bros are the heroes who set out on adventures to stop Bowser, who is the villain through and through.
* WhiteAndGreyMorality: Though in [[DependingOnTheWriter some instances]], Bowser is greyed up a bit, making him more of an AntiVillain. His minions are not TheEvilArmy (some [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch aren't even allied]] with Bowser at all) and are firmly in the grey area. They're [[JustFollowingOrders just doing their job]], and will gladly have [[FriendlyEnemy get togethers]] in the Mushroom Kingdom in their free time.

Of course, Mario hasn't completely limited himself to the realm of video games. ''Donkey Kong'', featuring the titular ape and Mario, was one of the main recurring segments in the Saturday morning cartoon show ''WesternAnimation/SaturdaySupercade'', in which Donkey Kong was a performer in a circus owned by Mario, but he ran away and Mario pursues him to bring him back. More significantly, Mario and Luigi appeared in ''Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'', with live-action linking segments featuring the brothers as plumbers in Brooklyn and cartoons that showed them in the world of the games. The secondary ThemeSong for the cartoons explains that they "found the secret WarpZone while working on the drain" which is how they got to the Mushroom Kingdom from Brooklyn. Interestingly, none of the television shows are technically 'canon', inasmuch as the games have that anyway, though it has affected some {{fanon}}. This might be related to the irony that there's never been a show made of it in the country of origin, aside from the obscure theatrical anime ''Anime/TheGreatMissionToSavePrincessPeach''. There was also a [[VideoGameMoviesSuck critically-panned]] [[Film/SuperMarioBros motion picture]], where Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo as the titular brothers faced off against Dennis Hopper as Koopa, a hyperevolved dinosaur from AnotherDimension, intent on rejoining his own, mostly desolate world with ours. In addition, ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' was notable for being previewed in the Fred Savage film ''Film/TheWizard'', whose climactic scene involved an autistic child playing several levels of the game in a competition. Nintendo announced in 2018 that it will be collaborating with Creator/IlluminationEntertainment to produce an animated ''Super Mario Bros.'' movie.

** One more glaring hint: In ''VideoGame/MarioKart Wii'', the track Daisy Circuit features a giant golden statue of Luigi dancing with Daisy, holding hands. Another golden statue depicts Baby Luigi dancing with Baby Daisy, also holding hands ([[EasterEgg unless the statues were replaced by your Miis]]).

* RoguesGallery: Mario has built up a gallery of his own over the years. It includes: [[ArchEnemy Bowser]], [[Franchise/DonkeyKong Donkey Kong]], [[EvilCounterpart Wario]], [[OverlordJr Bowser Jr.]], [[EvilSorcerer Kamek]], [[KingMook King Boo]], [[EnsembleDarkhorse Fawful]], [[AscendedExtra Petey Piranha]], [[QuirkyMinibossSquad the Koopalings]] and [[LeanandMean Waluigi]].

* SubvertedKidsShow: Among the many games and radio programs exclusive to the Satellaview was [[https://www.mariowiki.com/Shitamachi_Ninj%C5%8D_Gekij%C5%8D Shitamachi Ninjō Gekijō]], a virtual magazine done by a cult humorist that featured things like Toad having oral sex with Princess Peach and Mario lighting up a smoke after stomping Peach, all illustrated with photos of Mario plushes. Thanks to Mario's kid-friendly reputation, Nintendo is understanbly less than eager to remind people of the program's existence.

* SuperDrowningSkills: In ''VideoGame/{{Super Mario Bros|1}}''., Mario can swim in underwater levels, but not in land levels, where water is nothing but a BottomlessPit. In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioLand'', water is again a Bottomless Pit. In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'', Yoshi can't swim. ''VideoGame/{{Paper Mario|64}}'' puts invisible walls around the water, and ''[[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor The Thousand-Year Door]]'' uses [[BorderPatrol carnivorous fish]] to keep Mario out of water.

* TubeTravel: Warp Pipes. However, in some cases (such as the {{Warp Zone}}s), you appear to be {{teleport|ersAndTransporters}}ing instead of traveling a path.

* WeaponizedOffspring: Heroic example, the Yoshis use their eggs as projectiles. Birdo has this trademark move of shooting eggs out of her mouth in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' and yellow Paragoombas in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' attack by releasing Micro Goombas from the air.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: While the first Super Mario Bros. isn't an example, since it defined nearly everything about the series, Super Mario Bros. 2 (outside of Japan) and to a lesser extent 3 are both examples.
** The non-Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2 is a conversion of an earlier Famicom Disk System game that had ''nothing to do'' with Super Mario Bros., and as such it introduces a ''lot'' of new elements, most of which were never picked up in any other main series game. It has new gameplay elements like throwing vegetables, enemies that never appear elsewhere, a totally different style of level (with many levels that begin outside and then enter a building or cave, and (unique among the sidescrollers) boss battles in every level. In fact, very few elements aside from the main characters are even recognizable from the first game.
** While most of the new elements from Super Mario Bros. 2 were completely discarded (though the Shy Guys and Snifits became icons of the series), Super Mario Bros. 3 had significant influence on later games. Some of its weirder elements were completely dropped, though, like the large display at the bottom of the screen which showed Mario's lives, score, number of coins collected, and which had a gauge that displayed Mario's speed, allowing him to make flying leaps when it was full. The bizarre black-and-white area at the end of each regular level is also unique to the game.

** Though to a lesser extent, Bowser Jr.'s size varies just like his father's. In spinoffs and his debut appearance in ''Super Mario Sunshine'', he's shorter than Mario. In ''Super Mario Galaxy'', however, his size has increased drastically. It's especially noticeable in the cutscene before the [[spoiler: final boss battle]], where he practically towers over Princess Peach ([[TinyGuyHugeGirl who, herself, is considerably taller than Mario]]).
