''Mario's Day Job'' is a video game webcomic by [[http://www.smackjeeves.com/profile.php?id=2440 Butterscotch]]. It started off as a humorous comic about [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Mario's and Luigi's jobs as plumbers]] featuring video game {{cross over}}s, but has since evolved to feature an overarching plot involving the heroes rescuing several {{distressed damsel}}s... And Professor Oak. It mostly features characters from ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'', ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', ''AnimalCrossing'' and ''HarvestMoon''.

It can be found on SmackJeeves [[http://mariosjob.smackjeeves.com/ here]].

!Contains examples of the following tropes:
* AndYourRewardIsInteriorDecorating: No one ever pays Mario and Luigi cash for their plumbing jobs.
* ButtMonkey: Luigi
* CloudCuckooLander: Mark
* DesignatedVictim: Both played straight and subverted. Zelda does get kidnapped, but it's by Bowser and thus far Peach has managed to escape being kidnapped. Daisy has not had the same luck. The other characters who have been kidnapped are all first timers.
* EconomyCast: Despite the comic having LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, Mario and Luigi seem to be the only plumbers in the ''Mario's Day Job'' universe.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: In addition to Zelda, Peach, and Daisy, there's Princess Juliet, a Jigglypuff.
* FanNickname: Mark thinks Jack looks like a Pete.
* HeroicMime: Subverted with Link.
* IAmNotShazam: When Luigi first meets Link, he wonders how Zelda was able to escape from Bowser.
* MegaCrossover
* PunBasedTitle: Butterscotch is fond of using these when she names each page.
* PungeonMaster: Dawn
* RunningGag: Several. Two of the most common are that everything is a Pokémon and Link being mistaken for other characters.
* SmoochOfVictory: Peach tries to give Mario one after he retrieves the ring she dropped down the drain, but is [[AlmostKiss interrupted]] by Mario's ringing cell phone calling him off on another plumbing emergency.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Goomba and Boo
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Bowser doesn't understand the concept of plans that don't involve kidnapping Peach.
