The Super Mario series a Japanese multimedia series consisting of video games, television shows, a film, music, and comic books.

It is a spin-off of the Mario Bros. series. It was further spun off into the Luigi series, Wario Land series, the Yoshi series, the Mario RPG series, the Mario Kart series, the Mario Party series, the Mario sports series, the Luigi's Mansion series, and the Super Smash Bros. series.

Fictional character biographies

Mario, and sometimes his twin brother Luigi, travel to the Mushroom Kingdom. Princess Toadstool of the Mushroom Kingdom, Peach, is repeatedly kidnapped by Bowser, King of the Koopa. Each time Princess Peach is captured, Mario, and sometimes Luigi, have to travel across several different worlds to rescue her.

There are a few exceptions to this. In Super Mario Land, Mario travels to Sarasaland to rescue Princess Daisy from the evil alien Tatanga. In Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins, Mario's evil counterpart Wario steals his castle and seals it shut with six golden coins. Mario has to find and recover the coins so that he can unseal the magic keeping him out of his castle and defeat Wario.
