Super Mario Bros. 2 (The Lost Levels) - Famicom Disk System
Mario doesn't speak English
Considering how he has an extremely thick Italian accent, it should go without saying that Italian is more than likely Mario's mother tongue. Not to mention that the few times he has spoken English, they're mostly short quotes, stock phrases and the like which, outside of adding some effect to certain situations (like the Terminator's "Hasta la Vista, baby"), they don't really have much significance. Couple this with the fact that in literally all of Mario's RPG s, he's a silent protagonist, and you've got the very likely possibility that Mario never learned to speak English... Or... Whatever language they actually speak in the Mushroom Kingdom...
Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World - Super famicom and SNES
Bowser loses to Mario on purpose because the alternative would be a soul-crushing jump off the Slippery Slope
Bowser is deeply in love with Peach, but Peach can't/won't return his love because Bowser is giant, ugly, brutish and a turtle. He regularly kidnaps her because he enjoys being in her presence, but he cares for her too much to actually force himself on her. Since she knows he's basically harmless and Mario will ultimately save her anyway, she somewhat pities him and they develop a strange platonic relationship in between the times Mario rescues her. When Mario does arrive in the Kingdom, Bowser plays with him for a while but ultimately allows him to reach the castle - this is why he leaves the means of confronting him just lying around his kingdom instead of storing them all in his castle! He then stages the final battle Evil Overlord style to boost his ego...and promptly throws the fight. If he were ever to actually defeat Mario, he would then be confronted with the reality of his captive princess growing to truly hate him, which could end one of a few ways. For the sake of his own sanity, he uses Mario as an excuse as to why he can't have the princess. This bizzare relationship is the reason Peach is cool with Go Karting with Bowser.
Super Mario Bros. Deluxe - Game Boy Color
There is a slightly substantial age difference between Mario and Peach
PN:: so i think the idea of mario was a guy save little girl and no love in the story
This seems much more apparent in the earlier Super Mario Bros games (especially in certain official art pics of the original Super Mario Bros depicts the Princess Peach that Mario is saving as a little girl). While in more recent games any potential age difference is downplayed but it seems like Mario is fairly older than Princess Peach.

Classic NES Series: Super Mario Bros. - Game Boy Advance
Bowser Jr.'s mother is Bowser
Mario was drunk one night after a go-kart race and confused a sleeping Bowser for Peach, then sciencey stuff happened and an egg was laid, which hatched into Bowser Junior. The only ones that know are Bowser and two random Goomba servants.
Mario vs. Donkey Kong - Game Boy Advance
Mario and Luigi are Kryptonian.
Enhanced strength, phenomenal jumping prowess, and an ability to absorb solar energy (the various stars Mario collects)? Sounds a lot like Superman to this troper! Mario and Luigi cannot fly and don't have heat vision and overall aren't nearly as powerful or invulnerable because their cells' absorption abilities were messed up after absorbing too much at once thanks to invincibility stars. (To make up for this, their messed up cells can now absorb the energy from magical items instead, allowing them to utilize Fire Flowers, Mushrooms, etc. more effectively than anyone else in the Mushroom Kingdom.)
Super Princess Peach - Nintendo DS
Mario's job was not carpenter, plumber, or construction worker; instead, he was a building superintendent
This is why he's called Super Mario - it describes his occupation. It also matches up to the naming scheme of the Alternate Universe Doctor Mario. Also consider the parallel to Real Life real estate maven Mario Segale.
Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis - Nintendo DS
Princess Peach, aka Princess Toadstool, is the willing lover of Bowser, King of the Koopas.
The whole "constant kidnapping" thing is a form of flirting and a way of hiding their illicit affair from everyone else. She's also the mother of his children. Note that "Bowser Jr." from Super Mario Sunshine explicitly thinks that Peach is his mother; his "real" mother is is never revealed or even alluded to.
Super Mario All-Stars (ROM) - PC Games
Peach is a human.
Peach came to the mushroom world much in the same fashion as the Mario Bros. The childlike Toads saw her as a mother figure, and she accepted the role (like Wendy in Peter Pan). The Toads then built a castle for her and crowned her princess.
Super Mario 64 - Wii Virtual Console
Peach is not a human but a mutant mushroom woman.
Why would a human rule over a race of mushroom people? Easy; she's not a human. Rather, she is a more humanoid version of the Toads that populate the Mario world.
Super Mario World - Wii Virtual Console
Peach is an ordinary mushroom woman who uses magic illusions to look like an attractive woman to Mario and Luigi.
An alternative to the above. Add that she does have magical abilities (as evidenced by her floaty jumps in Super Mario Bros. 2 and her attacks in Super Smash Bros Melee), and you get the idea that Mario and Luigi may never have seen the real Peach.
Super Mario Bros. - Wii Virtual Console
The entire series is nothing more than a plumber's drug trip caused by hallucinogenic mushrooms.
This would explain... well, everything. It would especially explain why Mario uses mushrooms as a healing item; what better way could he stay "alive" in his dream world than by prolonging it with more magic 'shrooms?
Super Mario Bros. 2 - Wii Virtual Console
The gravity in the Mushroom Kingdom is a fraction of what it is in the "real world".
In the Super Mario Bros Super Show continuity, Mario and Luigi were ordinary plumbers in stylish outfits before a time-space anomaly dropped them into the Mushroom Kingdom, where they became heroes renowned for their jumping abilities. Both plumbers can naturally leap far beyond the human norm, especially for pudgy Mario and willowy Luigi. If she were in our world, Princess Peach might weigh about 500 pounds. For further evidence, see Super Mario Bros. 2, where Toad's jumps are far shorter than Mario or Luigi's, and, while Peach is able to use magic to float in the air, she can get no more height than Toad.
Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels - Wii Virtual Console
Mario nearly died in a freak portal accident sending him to Earth, where his body was found by Dr. Wily and Dr. Light.
They made him stronger, faster, better. They also named him "Jumpman." Thankfully, he eventually found a secret warp zone while working on the drain and got his true name back.
Super Mario Bros. 3 - Wii Virtual Console
Rosalina is the Mushroom Kingdom equivalent of God
Take into consideration the following, The Mushroom Kingdom has a centenary celebration of a passing comet that turns out to be a space observatory of the Enigmatic Rosalina who nurtures baby stars until they become Planets, Galaxies, etc, etc.
Invisible being seeing the process of the creation of planets and wishes?
Celebrated by those who believe in it?
Rosalina is GOD.
I wish I was the one who came up with this, but This video more or less comes to pass with it (see about 7:12, but the whole deal is interesting all in all).
Mario Kart DS - Nintendo DS
Rosalina is Princess Peach's daughter from an alternate timeline.
Look at the picture of Rosalina's mother in the storybook flashbacks. That looks exactly like Princess Peach. Bowser Jr. notwithstanding, in the current timeline this didn't occur or at least...not yet. This would also explain why she refers to Peach as Mario's "Special One."
Super Mario Sunshine - GameCube
A long-lost third Mario Brother.
An imperfect, evil clone of Mario constructed by Bowser.
If the Mushroom Kingdom is an alternate universe to the "real world" that Mario comes from, then Wario and Waluigi are simply the original Mushroom Kingdom Versions of Mario and Luigi.
Alright, let me tell you guys this: it may make your heads explode. The Mushroom Kingdom decided that since Mario was mortal, he would expire after a few years. So MK scientists worked on trying to make a vessel for Mario to inhabit, it was immortal, but imperfect technology made it exaggerate Mario's traits (shorter and fatter) and gave him the ability to weaponize his flatulence. However, Mario's soul being transmitted into the vessel wonked it up and gave him dementia, the scientists panicked and sent him to an alternate universe. So Wario's the AU Mario, but that's not all... In the same alternate dimension, Luigi realized that his brother will most likely cause damage in the alternate universe, so he demanded to actually undergo surgery to not risk gaining the same dementia. He was sent to the universe in his new form, and, to avoid confusion with this universe's Luigi, so he nicknamed himself Waluigi. Waluigi kept a low profile to not rise suspicion, and utilizes bombs because he knows that Wario would be insane enough to fart on the lit flame of a bomb.
New Super Mario Bros. - Nintendo DS
Mario and Luigi are X-Men style mutants
Their only powers are super strength and super jumping. Their powers only manifested due to the inherent dangers of the Mushroom Kingdom, and the power items would work for any one.
Super Mario 64 - Nintendo 64
oshis are a species of tomboys
We know that they all lay eggs, and, given that all are referred to as male in Japan, they are all of the same gender. In real life there are actual lizards that are all female, and reproduce by a sort of cloning, laying eggs. The Yoshis are a similar species, who happen to all be a bit gender confused, and the Mario Brothers look up to them too much (having fond early childhood memories) to say anything about it, and play along as you or I would with an eccentric relative.
Mario Kart: Double Dash - GameCube
Yoshi Eggs are actually fecal waste containers.
Yes, this was suggested up above by Peteman in the "Yoshis are Tomboys" WMG, but the idea is so good it needs fleshing out. Yoshi Eggs are, as mentioned, not eggs, but solidified excrement. They look similar to actual Yoshi eggs to confuse predators. After ages of Mushroom World evolution, they learned to quickly generate these 'eggs' and utilize them as thrown weapons. There are male and female Yoshis, but due to no obvious characteristics, nobody can tell the difference.
Super Mario Bros. 3 - Famicom and NES
The Mushroom people are a race of giants
You'll note that Mario starts off in his small Mario form in the 2-D games. That is his natural form. So when he eats a mushroom, he doubles in size. But without the sizing up, he is smaller than the average Mushroom Kingdom denizen. That means he is a normal-sized (probably a bit shorter) person who gets bigger. The games where he is naturally bigger (Mario 64, Galaxy, many of the RPGs) represents him acclimating to the environment.
Mario Kart 64 - Nintendo 64
Mario is just insane
It is possible that Mario is just some ordinary guy who went insane after certain events in his life happened. Which led him down the dark road of Drugs and eventually led him to being committed to a mental institution.
Peach, Daisy, and Pauline may have been girls Mario knew in his past and the villains who captured them were the ones who were their boyfriends, so he demonized them in his fantasies.
Luigi is most likely his cowardice half or his own brother in real life who severed ties with Mario after seeing what he has become.
Super Mario Bros. / Duck Hunt - Famicom and NES
Mario' real name is Super Mario
Well, since the movie, even though it's mostly Canon Discontinuity, says that the Mario Bros' last names are Mario, Mario Mario is kinda stupid. There's also the Super in Super Mario Bros. I think that Mario is Super Mario, and Luigi is Luigi Mario. People go by their last names sometimes.
Super Mario World - Super famicom and SNES
Rosalina's body is composed of Dark Matter.
Explains why she's so damn heavy in Mario Kart Wii, anyway.
Super Mario Galaxy - Nintendo Wii
The Koopalings have no mother.
Magikoopas can create Koopa soldiers from blocks using magic spells. And Bowser, as stated in the original Super Mario Bros manual and demonstrated several times throughout the series, is extremely skilled at black magic. Therefore, I present the theory that Bowser used magic spells to create his children, heirs to the Koopa throne. It may in fact be possible that all Koopas reproduce magically, but this seems less likely (since the average Koopa doesn't seem to possess nearly the power that the Magikoopas or Bowser do).
Mario Kart Wii - Nintendo Wii
Princess Peach is the mother. She will never, ever admit this.
Throughout the Mario series, Bowser has kidnapped Princess Peach and taken her to his lair multiple times. His motives for doing so have never been stated directly, and most likely never will be due to the games' target audience.
Super Mario 64 DS - Nintendo DS
Mario is a Communist
First off, he's collecting coins. Why? So he can destroy them, as capitalist symbols. Alternatively, to distribute in a equal manner to the people of his glorious motherland. Secondly, he's fighting Bowser, who's a capitalist, setting up his own children as leaders over regions and smaller countries. Whenever Mario beats one of the castles, he destroys it as a symbol of capitalism! Finally, he's, well, wearing red. I rest my case.
* And don't forget that he is a plumber, making him a proletarian.
* Mario also does look exactly like Stalin.
* To sum it all up, Mario wears red, is working-class and looks like Stalin, his nemesis is a King (King Koopa) whom he desires to be overthrown and give the power to the people (Toadstool), not to mention at every end of Super Mario Bros. game Mario tears down the peace flag which looks like a "green skull with ridiculously large eyes" and replaces it with the Red Star of Communism. He also wielded a hammer in Donkey Kong. Does that still sound non-communist to you?
* And of course, Bowser is made out to be this power-hungry dictator, and yet he appears to have quite a few followers. Many, many more than Mario. But due to Mario's sheer radical nature being so strong, Bowser (official title: KING Koopa) and due to the creatures of the Mushroom Kingdom being rather dimwitted and gullible, Mario overthrows the monarchy and then uses Princess Peach as a puppet ruler so the denizens think that the government is the same, while Mario is busy making the real decisions.
* Mario destroyed the Yoshi cookie economy and limited each to six eggs.
Super Mario Kart - Super famicom and SNES
Mario is a capitalist
Counter to the above argument:
* Mario is so obsessed with money that amassing enough wealth is enough to get him an extra life.
* When this does not hold true, he simply uses the coins to support capitalist enterprise.
* Mario wears white and blue in addition to red.
* Plumbers, despite being blue-collar workers, can make very large amounts of money.
* The castles he tears down are bastions of the resistance, and he is almost always motivated by a quest to keep the current royalty in power.
Super Mario Bros. 2 - Famicom and NES
The Mario Universe is a post-apocalyptic tale
That is to say, all the creatures are mutated people and animals. Mario seems to have no qualms about killing any of these creatures, suggesting that he is either: (a insane, (b feeling opressed as a minority in the mushroom kingdom or (c scared by what he sees, and afraid that he will become them. It's like how no one in a zombie movie ever cares about killing zombies - they're already dead. Going with option (c, more speculation:
1. Bowser, then, wishes to create a cure for the mutations by studying one of the last remaining humans alive. Mario is almost insane, and thinks Bowser's kidnapping was to kill Peach or turn her into one of them, so he goes on a murderous rampage through abandoned castles, hoping to discover Bowser's laboratory. The fireballs that Bowser shoots are actually attempts by Bowser to inject Mario with the cure, lest he succomb to his insanity and turn into one of the creatures. Mario then runs past bowser, and murders him with a hammer for testing reflexes (which is part of Bowser's medical apparatus). Mario pretends the Princess thanks him, when in reality, she is cowering in a corner. This explains why we never see her hugging Mario for what he has done; Mario cannot bring himself to pretend that this happened.
2. Luigi never existed. Mario created him as an alternate personality to help deal with the stress of seeing his friends and family mutated. He is an idealistic Mario: shirt no longer stained blood red, taller than Mario, and less overweight.
3. Wario is Mario's mutated form. When Wario appears in a game of his own it could be said to be taking place after Mario kills Bowser, Mario having mutated and gained monstrous powers, although he can no longer jump like he used to due to his mutated legs and massive size. When Mario fights Wario, however, it could be a metaphor for how Mario is slowly losing his mind to whatever force that is turning everyone into monsters. The sadism of Wario is caused by how Mario was forced to kill so many mutated humans.
4. Every Mario game with the same plot (ransack some castles, find the princess) is a flashback that Wario has. The reason they vary so much is due to Wario being traumatised and unsure of what he saw back when he was human. He relives what happened over and over again, due to the realisation that Bowser was trying to help him. In reality, the cute creatures were vile monsters. World 8 in New Super Mario Bros is closer to reality than most of Wario's hallucinations - as Wario gets closer to the climax of his grief he remembers things more clearly.
5. Yoshis are mutated dogs, Toads are mutated children.
Super Mario Bros. - Famicom and NES
Bowser is actually Mario's father
Bowser is an overprotective father of Mario who still sees him as a small child and doesn't want him to have a girlfriend, which is why he keeps "kidnapping" Peach.
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door - GameCube
Princess Peach is behind everything
Her plan is similar to what Palpatine did in Star Wars to become Emperor. She is planning to take over the world and Bowser is her accomplice. In the first game, Peach staged her kidnapping so that she could become all-powerful, bribing Bowser to help her. She had him cast a spell over the kingdom, and kidnapped her own subjects while acting innocent. Her plan would have succeeded if it wasn't for two plumbers who came to "rescue" her, ruining her plan. Nevertheless, she acted nice for them. Every new game is actually Peach attempting her plan over and over again.
Super Mario All-Stars - Super famicom and SNES
Luigi is more powerful than Mario, but is being held back.
We know from the platformers (SMW 2 and SMG, specifically) that Luigi is faster and can jump higher than Mario. We also know that Luigi is tougher and healthier from the RPGs. Put these together and he's practically a Flying Brick! There are two reason why he isn't the hero: his low self-esteem and bad footwear, which reduces his acceleration. Now, here's where the guessing comes in. I think that Mario, who is older, stopped Luigi from helping him on his adventures when they were little, because he didn't think Luigi was old enough to be of use. Mario became famous, everybody loved him and he got to guest star at events like boxing matches. He boasted to Luigi about how everyone loved him and Luigi was depressed that he wasn't as succesful. Now, heroes attract danger so Luigi blamed bad things on him and his brother, but when it was just Mario saving the world(s), Luigi felt weak and inadequate. Plus, his shoe fitter and martial arts instructor are both Toads, so they are jealous of Luigi's height and sexy mustache so they deliberately hinder him by giving his slippery shoes and weak, embarrasing fighting techniques respectively.
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island - Super famicom and SNES
Mario murdered Donkey Kong.
This explains why he never returned in any story-based Mario game to take revenge on Mario. All of his own games take place before he kidnapped Roxanne. His appearances in party, sport or SSB games are the elaborate illusion of a Boo trying to throw Mario offguard.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii - Nintendo Wii
Boos are weeping angels.
Super Paper Mario - Nintendo Wii
Donkey Kong/Jr. is the Mushroom King/Prince
The Mushroom King and prince were captured by Bowser, who sentenced them to the De-vo chamber from the movie. Judging by the fact that Peach is apparently human, so were they; thus, they were turned into lesser primates. Decades later, the king ventured to Brooklyn to find the Mario Bros. and lead them home. Unfortunately, since he could no longer communicate intelligibly, he resorted to kidnapping Pauline and baiting Mario. (Similar to video games where primates steal something to get you to follow them.) When that failed, the King was put in a zoo, and the Mushroom Prince had to save him. Mario was knocked out cold when Jr. saved his father, and when he came to, he was in the Mushroom Kingdom, with DK and JR nowhere to be found. Unable to tell anyone what really happened, the royal father and son now reside over an island in the tropics, where the King is spending his final days...
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars - Super famicom and SNES
The time limit is real
In games where Mario has a time limit to complete a level, it's actually the time left before Bowser (or whoever the foe is in the game) nukes/gasses the whole level. Think about this. If Bowser was smart, he'd just make a giant brick wall that is totally impassible instead of making even his own casle just barely possible to pass, right? Well, in reality, Bowser just orders his army to rough up and guard the landscape, and alert when Mario enters the level. As soon as Mario is spotted, Bowser's forces prepare a nuke or something to obliterate everything inside the level, including the mustached plumber. The time limit is how much time it takes to fully prepare and detonate this weapon. This explains the levels - every individual level is the radius of one of these weapons. It also explains the mooks and the difficulty - it slows Mario up so the weapon can do its job, and the difficulty increases as Mario proceeds because they initially underestimated him and need to try harder slowing him up as he gets better at avoiding their obstacles. It even explains the small castle at the end of every level - either a safehouse where Mario will be protected, or where he deactivates the weapon.
Also, in Super Mario Galaxy, the speedy comets will unleash a toxic gas if you do not get to (or collect) the Power Star (which grants Mario imunity to the toxic gas)
Super Mario Galaxy 2 - Nintendo Wii
Mario has an Embarrassing First Name.
The main problem with "Mario" being the last name of the Mario Bros. is that "Mario Mario" sounds silly, and their parents would have to be out of their minds to name one of them Mario. Most, would simply disregard the silliness or point out the fact that they don't have a last name in Japan. However, I propose this alternative: Mario has an Embarrassing First Name that has never appeared in any publication, everyone refers to him on a Last Name Basis only.
Super Mario Land - Game Boy
The entire series is Bowser's dying dream
Bowser DID die at the end of the original 1985 Super Mario Bros, and the rest of the series is his dying dream as he sinks into the lava.
Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time - Nintendo DS
Mario is actually a small child...
...and the games are his hallucinations of the "Boogeyman" (Bowser) stealing one of his toys (Peach). Luigi really is his brother, and Yoshi is either another toy or a dog. Or a pet lizard.
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga - Game Boy Advance
Mario and Luigi's last name is Jumpman, and Jumpman was Mario and Luigi's father.
Since Cranky Kong was the original Donkey Kong, it's possible that Jumpman was the original Mario (as he was named Mario in Donkey Kong Jr.), making the Mario we all know and love the second Mario. Pauline was some girl he dated for a while, and the Pauline in the Mario Vs. Donkey Kong sub-series is the first Pauline's daughter.
Mario Party 8 - Nintendo Wii
The entire Mario series is told by a father who told his daughter a bedtime story before his death
Mario Jumpman was a tired, divorced plumber who's wife died in a car accident long ago. he lived with his brother, Luigi, and two daughters, Adrienne and Lucia.
One day, he was diagnosed with a form of cancer, before his death, he told an amazing bedtime story to Adrienne, his little "Peach".
It was about the Mushroom Kingdom, named for one of Adrienne's dreams, and for her love of mushrooms, there were little citizens he called "Toads" for Adrienne also loved frogs and toads, in addition, there were special life-giving mushrooms.
The enemies were based on true events, one being Bowser, who's appearance was based on the description of a monster in her dreams, and name was based on their deceased dog. the Koopas were based on Adrienne's fear of turtles, since one bit her when she was young, and the name was based on a korean dish she tried out. the Boos were based on her thoughts about ghosts, wether they were real or not, Mario said they were, but they are very shy, and hide when you see them, the Chain Chomps were based on an aggressive dog, and the Goombas were also based on an aggressive dog the family once met, and Mario wanted a silly name for it. Piranha Plants were based on a pet Venus Flytrap Lucia once kept, and Cheep Cheeps were based on Lucia's pet goldfish that Adrienne disliked, Yoshi and Birdo were based on pet lizards Luigi once kept, and the Shy Guys were based on a group of little kids Mario met at a halloween party.
Donkey Kong and Pauline were based on a bully, and her best friend, with the same name. the story revolves around Mario himself, who saves his little "Princess Peach" from evil King Bowser. Lucia was named "Princess Daisy" for the nickname given by Luigi, Daisy is also a tomboy, much like Lucia. The idea of extra lives was the fact that Mario would stay alive, no matter what.
Mario later died of the cancer, but Adrienne kept the story in her memory, and later on in life, met Shigeru Miyamoto (fictionally, of course), told him the story, and a legend was born...
