* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Peach [[PrincessClassic Princess]] [[GirlyGirl Peach]] is just the start.start. To make things even better, TomboyPrincess Daisy was introduced as her sister-in-arms. So we have two delightful Princesses to enjoy. Rosalina subverts this, as while she is similar to Peach and Daisy and wears a CoolCrown, her status is downplayed, and is unknown to be of any actual royalty at all.


** Several characters in the various franchises can move a lot quicker than their mass might lead you to believe, most of all our protagonist, Mario. His slightly pudgy plumber's physique belies a leaping ability beyond compare, while ''Super Mario 64'' made him into quite the track-and-field athlete, way before ''Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games''. Somewhat {{Downplayed|Trope}} as his more current design seems to have given him a slimmer look, although that could mainly be due to Art Evolution.

* 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.

* SeriesGoal: The goal is usually for Mario and Luigi to rescue Princess Peach and save the Mushroom Kingdom.


The story of the Mario Brothers begins not in their own game, but in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong''. In that game, a certain mustachioed carpenter was charged to rescue the beautiful [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Lady]] (later renamed Pauline) from a rampaging ape. The player character was not named in Japanese materials, but the tentative name "[[MeaningfulName Jumpman]]" had been given for use in Nintendo of America's localization. During production of the overseas release, Nintendo of America had a suspenders-wearing Italian American of one of their warehouses named [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mario_Segale Mario Segale.]] President Minoru Arakawa and Don James thought it would be funny to name the character after him, thus creating the name and nationality of Mario.
