You will be shocked to know who made mario bros


Created by Johnathan Grover, each Mario picture took over one whole year to complete.

The inspiration for this series of images came from a friend who gave him the idea after seeing his previous owl paintings. He was extremely fascinated by Nintendo games as he grew up playing them.

He says "Mario himself is probably my favorite character due to his mischievous behavior and charm. The many pranks he played on the enemies in game always caught my attention."

"I love to paint animals, so it was pretty easy for me to transform Nintendo characters into animals which is what I did with these images."

Who made mario bros

The game was designed by Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka, both of which are now famous game designers.

Takashi's father was quite a sculptor so he is used to drawing people with interesting bodies, this is why most of the characters have different body parts.  Shigeru Miyamoto thought up all the ideas for the individual characters and stages, as well as the gameplay. As a result, he is often referred to as the father of modern video games.

The Mario series has sold over 330.21 million units worldwide, which is equal to roughly $59,870 billion in revenue. This makes it the best selling video game series in history, by a landslide margin of almost 100 million copies.

He was inspired by classic arcade games like Donkey Kong, which is where Mario originally came from

Mario was named after the landlord of Nintendo of America's office, Mario Segale. The original full name that Nintendo gave to him in Japan was "Mr. Video", but then they shortened it and tried out other names before settling on Mario.

The first game he appeared in back in 1981 was Donkey Kong, which was designed by Miyamoto and released by Nintendo. Mario created the idea of a plumber jumping on turtles and mushrooms to save his girlfriend from a giant gorilla monster thing. This simple yet effective formula has been used ever since, and is still going strong today with New Super Mario Bros U for the Wii U.

Marios Adventure (1990) (Mario goes to rescue Peach from Bowser, is transformed into a raccoon and then is given flying abilities when he eats a magical leaf.)  He has made many games since then, such as marios adventure 2 etc.

The characters and setting were based on his childhood in Japan

Miyamoto has said that when he was a child, there were a lot of forests near his home. He says "This is why you have a very healthy forest with native animals in Super Mario Bros," and it's also why all the characters seem so happy and fun loving.

The games main protagonist, he is a short Italian plumber who's profession is to rescue Princess Peach Toadstool from the evil King Koopa Bowser. He is easily recognised by his trademark red cap, blue overalls and white gloves. His full name in Japan was originally "Mr Video Game" but it was shortly changed to "Jumpman".

Mario appears in almost all of the games in the series, with a total of over 200 titles. He has also appeared in many different types of media outside of video games such as a comic book series, a feature film and even is own early morning show on NBC.


As of 2013, Mario has received universal acclaim from critics. He is regarded as one of the most famous characters in gaming history, where many games often make top ten lists which include him. As he has appeared on more game covers than any other character, and was voted best video game character ever by GameFAQs.

Mario has been portrayed by Charles Martinet since 1995, who gives him a distinct voice and personality which makes him seem like more than just a plumber who jumps on turtles.
