1) Intro
++++++++++++++++++

Welcome to this Mario character guide for this awesome fighting game that
we call Super Smash Brothers! Not only is it a good fighting game with
cool objects, and cool places to play at, but it's you versus other various
Nintendo characters! Very cool.

Yes, I know there are lots of FAQs and Move Lists at GameFAQs already for
this game, and I am aware of all the character FAQs. Well, guess what?
There's no Mario character FAQs and this game has been out for over a month
already! So, I felt bad for this famed Nintendo character and whipped up
this little FAQ. Aren't I so generous?

The only thing that could improve this game is Wario being a character in
the game. Wario - I can't get enough of the guy.

Note: This is very much like my Yoshi character FAQ, so please don't get
confused. I used the same layout, and some of the same content except
modified into Mario material. Mario's move list has also been completely
changed. This should eliminate all confusion you have if you just read
the Yoshi character guide.

5) Strengths/Weaknesses
++++++++++++++++++++++++

Strengths

- The Fireball, which is Mario's basic move, is a good way of holding your
opponent's back. For example, if Ness is coming after you with a hammer,
keep shooting fireball at him so he can't get to you.

- His special moves (moves used with the R button) are very powerful and
are good ways of causing a good amount of damage to your opponent.

- He's not that big so he's not a huge target for your opponent's to try
and hit.

Weaknesses

- Some of his moves do none / barely any damge to your opponent's which
will make you really on weapons quite often.

- He doesn't carry a weapon around automatically (for example, Samus and
Fox are equipped with guns throughout the entire fight no matter what
you do).

7) Credits
++++++++++++++++++

It took me awhile to get the games in my hands (I rented it when it first
came out, then it was off the shelves at Blockbuster for months). Then,
I had to sit down and write down Mario's moves which wasn't too enjoyable
(and it hurt my hand), but all in all, this FAQ isn't that big; it's just
to help you out if you decide to be Mario.
