The series began in 1981 in the arcade game "Donkey Kong" where Mario has to beat an ape known as Donkey Kong. As time went by, he has become one of the world's best-known video game characters since 1985 after the release of Super Mario Bros on the NES. The series spawned multiple genres and series such as racing, party, puzzle, and role-playing games. It's one of the most popular Nintendo franchises and video game franchises in general.
Power of the Verse
Despite being a light-hearted and colorful franchise, the verse is incredibly powerful. While common enemies and certain characters would find themselves around Wall to Building level, many of the recurring cast and the foes they faced usually ranges from Country level to Multi Solar System level, with the most powerful beings and artifacts in the series usually being Universal+ or Multiversal. In terms of speed, many of the characters and vehicles are Relativistic+ to Massively FTL+ in combat speed and movement. The verse has many hax powers as well, including, but not limited to, Gravity Manipulation, Reality Warping, Spatial Manipulation, Transmutation, and creating dimensions, with several of them being in the form of powerful magic. Notable users includes Kamek, Wizpig, King Boo, and surprisingly, Princess Peach. Overall, this is a verse that definitely should not be underestimated.
