Mario Mario

also known as: Ossan; Mr. Video; Jumpman; Mario; Super Mario.

Mario may have been in more games than any other character. Since begining his working life in Donkey Kong, as Jumpman, Mario has had some difficulty settling into a career. Dabbling as a badguy, umpires of various sports, as well as a competitor, a sometime game presenter, plumber, demolition expert, archaeologist, typing tutor, painter—and the list goes on—Mario has, perhaps, become a good support case for the expression 'jack of all trades; master of none'.
