    Mario was kind of an astronaut, a party host/animal, pro dancer, and according to Mario Party 2, he's a cowboy, a pirate, a space explorer, an archaeologist, and a wizard. He's also an all-star fighter from the SSB series, and literally a pinball.

    Mario is also an expect dancer, how could you guys forget that.

    I'm a little perplexed at the issue of playing sports. I play golf on occasion (or used to), as do other members of my family, but it's never been our job for any of us-- just recreation. I'd think the actual playing of some other sports here would qualify as well.

    What if Mario became a video game designer?

    TECHNICALLY, Wario does that, the warioware series are otherwise his own products, with DIY where he thought the people do "DO IT YOURSELF"

    Mario vs. Wario 2: 6 Golden Games. I don't know what that would do, but I just thought of it.

    The Kraken is a squid and not an octopus. See this is why Mario is the expert on marine biology and you are not. :)

    I'm confused, is it Mario week again? Anyway, well... there's only one explanation for this: Mario's a Polymath! just like DaVinci and Aristotle! :O OR it could be all in his head, what with all the shitload of mushrooms and hallucinogens he's ingested trough his entire career :P

    He has multiple personality disorder and each one comes with its own skill set and job training. :)
  • KA87 - March 1, 2013 1:57 p.m.

    Oh and the reason it is Mario week again is because one of Marios personalities is a writer for Gamesradar and wants to make sure he stays relevant.

    My theory is that mario is an amnesiac, at the start of each game he has lost all his memories but his name and believes peach can help him but when she's snatched away by bowser his quest to find his identity begins. And as to why he takes on so many jobs, he believes they may trigger his memories to come back if he finds what he did in his past life.

    Sorry for this article, guys. It's been a slow news day here at GamesRadar HQ
  • FAT47ITY - March 2, 2013 6:47 a.m.

    But it is only on slow days that you are desperate enough for a story and a good laugh that you end up writing about Mario's career.

    Awesome article, you guys went too far but why the heck not!? Hah, Alleyway Don't know what this makes Mario, but in Super Mario Land 2, one of the worlds is literally a giant Mechanical Mario and the final stage is even "Mario's Castle"
  • NuAngel - March 1, 2013 9:36 a.m.

    Too funny. What great timing! I'm glad the Alleyway one was listed in there. I just noticed this LAST NIGHT, less than 24 hours ago, looking at a poster that came with some original Gameboy accessories!!!
