Character Description

Retro Mario is the Nintendo Entertainment System, 8-bit pixelized replica of Mario who made various appearances in the old days in every Mario game, starting with Donkey Kong, where he was known as the Jumpman. Retro Mario was the protagonist of all Mario games until the Nintendo Entertainment System was disscontinued and Mario received a new redesign. NES Mario's design consists of multiple 3-D pixels, similar to legos, which form him. NES Mario can be considered a special character for being Mario's 30th anniversary (1981-2011).


Retro Mario is a very odd character. Although he's fully rendered in 3D, all of his attacks are basically from either Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, and some from Mario. Retro Mario is very fast on the ground and has some quick attacks. While some of them are very powerful, such as his Smash attacks, some of them are slow, weak and unorthodox. For instace, most of his tilts have below average knockback. His attacks have a fair number of projectiles. Retro Mario's medium to light weight, along with his very small size, makes him a very hard target to hit. He has good recovery. However, he can easily be knocked off the stage due to his small mass.
