The contest-winning fan-art by DJ Swan

Mario is a fictional character, created by Japanese game designer Shigeru Miyamoto. Serving as Nintendo's mascot and the protagonist of his series, Mario has appeared in over 200 video games since his creation. Pretty much everybody knows this awesome, short, mushroom-eating, Italian plumber!


In Super Mario Bros., which Mari0 is based on, he player runs and jumps across and on enemies in 32 levels. In the end, Mario rescues the kidnapped Princess Peach from the antagonist, Bowser

In Mari0, he is pretty much the same as in his source game, except for the Portal Gun he holds in his hands. While Mario is the only playable character in 1.6 and below, more are available in Mari0: SE. Additionally, mappacks in Mari0: SE can control when Mario has the portal gun. 

The game itself does not provide a reason for him having the gun. However, some user-created mappacks do.
