Super Mario is an old man these days and he has had quite the amazing history. It is more than fair to say that the majority of the games to feature him have been great. There is a ton of fun little facts about Super Mario that many people are not aware of. Here we look at ten things that you might not know about Nintendo’s plumber!
#1 – Mario Is Dead!
WHAT!!!!!!! You are no doubt all gasping, but it is actually true. The box art for the original Super Mario Bros game that was released on the Nintendo Entertainment System shows Mario in a dynamic pose. But what you do not see is the aftermath of this pose which would result in Mario getting his butt burnt off.
You see this picture on the front of the box shows a scene that can only happen if the player screws up and sends Mario to his fiery death. There is no getting around that the only way this picture could have happened was for the guy playing the game to royally screw up a jump and land in the fire!
