Amada Anime Series: Super Mario Bros is a trilogy of Super Mario Bros. OVAs. They were released only in Japan in 1989.
Amada Anime Series: Super Mario Bros provides examples of:
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Because this series was released when Super Mario Bros was still young, Bowser has blue eyes instead of his standard red.
- Ambiguously Human: In Super Mario's Momotarō, Peach's grandparents are Hammer Brothers. It's unclear if she's Happily Adopted or a Half-Human Hybrid.
- Big Damn Heroes: Luigi appears at the very end of Super Mario Shirayuki-hime to help his brother defeat Bowser.
- Early Adaptation Weirdness: Mario having a gun is not something Nintendo would allow these days, but they were fine enough in the 1980s to allow Mario to carry one in Super Mario's Momotarō.
- Limited Animation: The animation has its fluid moments, but most of the movement is choppy.
- No Hugging, No Kissing: Super Mario Shirayuki-hime doesn't feature the famous True Love's Kiss associated with the story. Instead, Mario gives Peach a potion which wakes her up.
- Original Video Animation: The series was released on VHS in the 1980s.
- Raised by Grandparents: Super Mario's Momotarō has Peach being raised by her grandparents.
- Universal-Adaptor Cast: Each of the characters play different roles in the three stories.
- Unnamed Parent: Peach's grandmother and grandfather in Super Mario's Momotarō are simply referred to by their titles.
- Viewers Are Goldfish: There are flashbacks to scenes which happened only a few minutes earlier at various points in the series.
- Villainous Crush: Super Mario's Momotarō starts with Bowser capturing Peach because he wants her for himself.
- Younger Than They Look:
- In Super Mario's Momotarō, Mario is born a young boy. He's a boy who has a mustache and looks like an adult. The only difference between Mario and his adult self is that his clothes changed.
- In Super Mario's Issun-bōshi, Mario was born with a mustache. At only a few years old, he looks like an adult.
