How is Mario as fast as Sonic in the olympic game series?

IIRC:

Bullet Bill flies faster than the speed of sound, this is slowed down in the games for mechanical purposes. Mario can jump on Bullet Bills, moving at super-sonic speeds, and even jump on several in a row to gain altitude.

Sonic moves at the speed of sound. Mario is, therefore, faster than Sonic.

-source unremembered.


...so you are unreliable.

Just explaining the broken game logic that decided why Mario was faster. I can't be expected to remember the original author and I'd doubt anyone but him remembers who came up with it first.

He wears shoes made of concrete at the olympics, so that his fat plumber buddy can catch up to him after slurping down all that lasagna from last night.

Best explanation by far: Mario cheated Sonic at the Olympic games. He obviously took steroids. He has no shame and his weight wouldn't allow him to jump 2 CM off the floor without any performance enhancers.

I think you meant that Mario took off his concrete shoes.

sonic ate too many chili dogs


Your nuts. That would've made Sonic even faster. One rip after that will give a significant speed boost and its bye bye Mario.

Mario is pretty fast when he's hopped up on shrooms.

Super Mario World taught me that it isn't Mario moving, it's his surroundings...
