Of course, Mario hasn't completely limited himself to the realm of video games. 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 the first stage of the game.

** ''Super Mario 64 DS'' exaggerates this trope into a RunningGag. The game suggests that the reason Yoshi can't do some of the moves the other three have is purely due to the lack of a mustache. Some of the bosses are very proud of theirs, too; King Bob-omb prefers only to fight fellow mustachioed fellows if he has the option, and Chief Chilly is so obsessed with the subject that he judges the worth of people on the quality of their facial hair, even Yoshi [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything if you somehow manage to cheat the Dino into his level]].

** The Great Mission to Save Princess Peach is a Recognizable Adaptation. The core plot is the game as the first game amd the anime art style is consistent with the series at large, but it throws in a lot of changes to both the story and the characters personalities.
** The comic books adaptations are consistently Recognizable Adaptations.

Added DiffLines:

** The Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr adaptations in Saturday Supercade land somewhere between being an InNameOnly and PragmaticAdaptation, especially since they were made before the Mario series had truly established its iconic style and identity. On one hand, it barely uses anything from the games, but on the other hand, [[ExcusePlot there was barely anything to work with in the first place]], and having Mario be both the hero ''and'' the antagonist of two different segments running alongside each other just wasn't going to fly.

Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfAdaptationModification: The few tie-ins Mario get tend to share core elements from the games, but not much else.
** The DiC cartoons vary between being InNameOnly and Recognizable Adaptations.

** The comic books adaptations are consistently Recognizable Adaptations.
** The live action movie is a bizarre InNameOnly adaptation that plays fast and loose with the source material.
