The Evolution of Mario, Ka-Boomed into a Mushroom Cloud
Posted by Jon Wahlgren
Surely an illegal amount of Marios
The Super Mario has had a supremely prolific career since he first jumped a barrel and clonked an ape, with each new game slightly tweaking our mustachioed heroes appearance.
Want to see a whole bunch of them? Why, there's a neat-o mushroom cloud here that you should take a look at then! Running the whole gamut, wonder at the awkward early 3D Marios, or the ill-fated Virtual Boy Mario, and even Get Off My Lawn Mario next to his 16-bit Kart back view. Not to forget the side jobs he's had as a chef, pollution cleaner and doctor. Why anyone would take a pill from this man is beyond us.
Not every Mario in this mushroom cloud is unique, but we're willing to fudge the details in favor of it looking rad. See how many you can identify the game they're from, and if you're stumped then check out the full chronological legend on kaycircle.
