Dr. Mario (ドクターマリオ, Doctor Mario) is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He was officially confirmed as playable on June 12th, 2018.

Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

Dr. Mario is now a semi-clone of Mario, rather than a full clone like he was in Melee and Smash 4.

Dr Mario has different physics and basic attributes to Mario and is not classified as an Echo Fighter.


  • Change As with all veterans returning from SSB4, Dr. Mario's model features a more subdued color scheme. Like Mario, his hair and clothing now features simple detailing, with his head mirror's headband reverting back to a cordovan brown from his Melee design, instead of a dark taupe gray.


  • Buff Like all characters, Dr. Mario's jumpsquat now takes three frames to complete.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff Dr. Mario has a new down aerial, a downward stomp, as opposed to a drill kick. Compared to the old down aerial, the stomp can meteor smash.
    • Nerf His new down aerial has slower start-up.

Special Moves[edit]

  • Change Like with Mario’s Cape, the animation of Dr. Mario hitting with the Super Sheet is slightly altered.


Character Showcase Video[edit]


  • With Link and Young Link now representing different incarnations of Link and Zelda and Sheik now representing different incarnations of Princess Zelda, along with Zero Suit Samus briefly transforming into her Varia Suited form for her Final Smash, Dr. Mario is the only playable character to represent an alternate identity for another character with no gameplay connection between the two.
  • During Luigi's character's trailer, Dr. Mario's Super Sheet is shown to have a visual glitch in which the sheet is incorrectly placed on his right hand.
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the first Smash Bros. game where Dr. Mario is not holding his Vitamins in his official art.
  • Dr. Mario’s official art resembles one of the victory animations he has in Super Smash Bros. 4.
