Talk:Mario (SSB)

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

We should make character pages for SSB and SSBB (when it comes out). Also, I'm not completely sure about all the pros/cons since I just used ones from the tier arguement in the SSB boards. --Greenblob 19:13, December 31, 2006 (GMT)

I agree entirely. 100%. Bad news: I haven't a clue about anything advanced in SSB. I'm pretty much an SSBM man only. I'm sure there's a few people in here who could lend us a hand. If I'm not mistaking, I think Simna ibn Sind knows a thing or two about the original Smash. Oddeven2002 23:42, December 31, 2006 (GMT)

I play Smash 64 a bit more than melee. ill fix anything wrong. User:KoRoBeNiKi

Special moves reference[edit]

Does it make sense to note somewhere (whether on this page, on the main Mario page, or on the individual move pages) that Mario's special moves in the original Smash Bros could be a reference to Ryu of Street Fighter? Mario's 3 special moves are similar to Ryu's 3 special moves, with Super Jump Punch being Shoryuken, Fireball being Hadouken, and Mario Tornado being Tatsumaki. Mario is the main character and all-around fighter, as is Ryu, and he has a clone in Luigi, as does Ryu in Ken. Additionally, Sakurai is known to be a fan of Street Fighter, having come out as a champion of a 100-person battle in arcade Street Fighter II. I dunno, it seems like an interesting coincidence, at the least. FirstaLasto 14:43, 2 March 2015 (EST)

I dunno, that may be one hell of a coincidence...but, considering how we already have a character with a Street Fighter reference in the moveset, I say it could go both ways. AidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNGAidan the Aura Master 15:34, 2 March 2015 (EST)
Uh, I'd say no. Fireball is a staple of the Mario series and of Mario himself, Hadouken is a VASTLY different projectile (from what I remember, a tad on the slow side, chargeable, and sort of large, while Fireball is fast and small). Tatsumaki is a spinning kick that is functionally different from the Mario Tornado. Super Jump Punch is also functionally different from Shoryuken and is also a staple of sorts from the Mario series, although this one is arguable. And sure Luigi is a clone, but you also have to remember that there were clones in the original due to budget and time restraints and that Luigi, Falcon, Samus, Kirby, and Jigglypuff were all heavily de-cloned in Melee. I think it's really just a coincidence that they share these traits and that there weren't many similarities on purpose. Laikue (talk | contribs) 15:48, 2 March 2015 (EST)


This applies to everyone in 64 but would they be considered newcomers since it's their debut in a Smash game? User:RatedMforMario. Let's-a-go!~ 02:15, 11 April 2018 (EDT)

I'd say technically yes, but it's not useful to say so. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Undirigible 06:34, 11 April 2018 (EDT)

Techniques on the smash 64 pages[edit]

(I just thought to say this in Mario's article because he is the first one) Why do the smash 64 character articles say techniques but not the other articles for characters in the other games? Its Ya Boy, MeleeBoi IsabelleHeadBlueSSBU.png 05:46, April 24, 2020 (EDT)
