Tropes associated with Charles Martinet's roles

  • I Am Not Spock: As far as the Mario fans are concerned, Charles and Mario are the same person. Regardless, Charles doesn't seem to mind since he loves doing his Mario (or any other Mario character requested) voice for fans.
  • Playing Against Type: As Gouji Rokaku, Fowl Mouth, Paarthurnax and Sanguinar.
  • Star-Making Role: Charles had acting experience prior to his role as voice actor of Mario; however, it wasn't until after his stint as Nintendo's famous mascot for Super Mario 64 that his name really took off. While other Nintendo characters had their voice actors changed every so often, Charles is the only one who has been in the same role for more than two decades.
