Geno (ジーノ, Geno) is a character from the Mario universe.
Geno appears as the basis of a downloadable content costume for Mii Gunners. Nintendo also released a QR code for those who wish to have the exact Mii used in the costume's advertising. The Geno costume was released simultaneously with Cloud, Midgar, and the Chocobo hat, collectively introducing Square Enix content to Smash.
Geno is one of the two original party member characters from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, the first Mario RPG title. Geno is a warrior from Star Road who allies himself with Mario, Princess Peach, Bowser, and Mallow on their quest to defeat Smithy. Geno's true form is enigmatic, as the body he fights with is in fact a doll he is possessing, and his true name is given as the unpronounceable ♥♪!?.
Due to Super Mario RPG having been developed by SquareSoft, its original characters are owned by them rather than Nintendo. As a result, they have made very few appearances in other media; Geno's only game appearance after his debut was in a brief cameo role in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga in the minigame Star 'Stache Smash. Notably, this cameo was removed in the game's remake, presumably for licensing reasons.
