Shaved Mario

Mario's mustache is iconic as his cap and overalls, so what happens when you shave it off? Well, nothing really - it just looks incredibly odd and means Mario doesn't resemble the Italian plumber we all know and love.

In saying this, Mario arguably looks closer to his actual age with a clean face. According to Shigeru Miyamoto, in an interview dating back to 2005, Mario is around "24 or 25" years old. If you're eager to see more of this clean-shaven version of Mario in Odyssey, you can take a look at his smooth face in the following video uploaded by ProsafiaGaming:
