* MushroomHouse: The series has had the [[MushroomMan mushroom-like Toads]] residing in Mushroom Houses since ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3''. When you visit them, especially in the platformers, you often receive an item for your adventure or play a minigame. This aspect isn't as prevalent in the [=RPGs=], although these still feature Toad Town as a collection of either giant mushrooms carved into houses or houses deliberately built to look like mushrooms.

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 2017 that it will be collaborating with Creator/IlluminationEntertainment to produce an animated ''Super Mario'' movie.

** Wario, when placed alongside Waluigi, often shares the abuse. In his platforming games, Wario's "powerups" are acquired by getting injured in various ways (such as being squashed flat in order to squeeze through very small gaps).

All this led to the game which more or less defined the entire Nintendo product line: ''VideoGame/{{Super Mario Bros|1}}.'' The story, which would recur countless times through the franchise, was simple enough: Bowser, a giant fire-breathing [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Turtle Dragon Ox Dinosaur]] and King of the Koopas, kidnaps [[DistressedDamsel Princess Toadstool]] of the Mushroom Kingdom (who would later revert to her Japanese name, Peach). Mario and Luigi must fight their way through a number of obstacles to face Bowser and rescue the princess. The formula has become codified to the point that the deliberate and highlighted trope subversions in spinoffs have themselves become tropes.

* ComboPlatterPowersComboPlatterPowers:
** '''Mario''' has had a long list of powerups along the years, among them: A [[DropTheHammer Super powerful Hammer]], power to [[ElementalPowers shoot fireballs]], to [[{{Sizeshifter}} grow in size]], [[InvincibilityPowerUp temporary invincibility]], a flying raccoon suit that transformed into a statue, a Frog suit to swim faster, a turtle suit that gives him an infinite supply of hammers, a [[BestLevelEver giant clockwork boot]], a pet Dinosaur to ride on, a [[{{Flight}} Flying cape]] (which deflects projectiles in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Melee]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl]]''), rabbit ears that allow him to Glide and Super Jump, hats that let him become solid Metal, {{Intangib|ility}}le/{{Invisib|ility}}le, or Fly, the ability to puff himself up like a balloon, a water gun that straps to his back, and the latest game gave him Ice powers, and Ghost, Bee, and spring transformations. Not to mention his vanilla standard powers of [[InASingleBound Super jumping]], SuperSpeed, and SuperStrength that he always has. New Super Mario Bros. Wii adds a Penguin suit that can swim like the Frog Suit, toss freezing snowballs like the Ice Flower, and walk on ice without slipping. And the Propeller Hat for flying. Plus has the Mini Mario from the DS game that is super tiny and can run across water without sinking.
** '''Luigi''': All of Mario´s power-ups, alongside the power to [[ShockAndAwe shoot lightning]], [[BlowYouAway create tornados]] and [[PowerOfTheVoid the Negative Zone]], which seems to have strange reality warping powers
** '''Bowser''': As of ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Bowser's Inside Story]]'', Bowser has SuperStrength, [[BreathWeapon fire breath]], [[BigEater inhaling enemies and food]], and the ability to [[SelectiveGravity momentarily defy gravity]] letting him [[GrievousHarmWithABody body slam]] and use the momentum of his punches to fly over gaps. Within the series, he also uses dark magics.
** '''Wario''' in the ''VideoGame/WarioLand'' series. His transformations range from the somewhat normal (on fire, flat, etc) to somewhat odd (become a vampire, zombie, invisible, frozen) to the completely insane (head puffs up like a balloon to float to various areas, dizzy/drunk Wario in ''VideoGame/WarioLand 3'' and the weird hats in the first game allowing a head mounted jetpack or flamethrower).
** '''Waluigi''': . His powers range from: [[BlowYouAway Create tornados]], [[MakingASplash summon a pool of water from absolutely nowhere]], [[{{Flight}} swim in mid-air]], create blinding smoke from his body, [[MasterOfIllusion create illusions of size and trajectory]], [[BroughtToYouByTheLetterS shoot the symbol in his hat]], hypnotize the world by dancing, etc. Bear in mind, they have no explanation whatsoever.

* FiveManBand: The usual heroic cast of the main series platformers. Mario is TheLeader as TheChampion of the Mushroom Kingdom and face of the group. Luigi is his {{Lancer}} and brother, the one most likely to tag along bringing an air of caution to foil Mario's courage. Toad is TheSmartGuy who Mario describes as 'the best advisor in-a the business.' He usually helps by providing hints and items in Toad Houses. Yoshi is TheBigGuy, as a PowerUpMount much more potent abilities than the brothers on their own, able to walk on spikes, flutter jump, and eat baddies. Peach is TheChick, as the pure-hearted ImpliedLoveInterest to TheLeader, that gets kidnapped so the others can save her, rarely being playable herself. After the ''Galaxy'' series Rosalina occasionally acts as a SixthRanger, with the presence of a BigGood.

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 several levels of the game in a competition.
