Former good article Mario was one of the Video games good articles, but it has been removed from the list. There are suggestions below for improving the article to meet the good article criteria. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.
edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Mario:
  • Focus article on the character Mario, and his creation and evolution. Reduce discussion about the games in general, that's what Mario (series) is for.
  • Ensure that every statement is supported by a reliable source.
  • Rewrite the whole "Appearances" section. Expand the paragraphs and cite more sources, especially in the two bottom sections concerning Mario's non-platforming game appearances. His Game & Watch games get barely a sentence. But please don't go overboard. Remember; that's what Mario (series) is for.
  • Once two weeks have passed since the failed FAC, submit this article for peer review.
  • Edit the concept and creation part about mario's last name as Miyamoto confirmed that he doesn't have one: (

Five things you (possibly) didn’t know about Mario[edit]

This page shouldn't be under Mario[edit]

This article, Mario, and of his brother, Luigi, and Yoshi currently occupy the 'top level' naming for their respective articles - But why? There is nothing unique about their naming or anything unique enough to differentiate it form any other Mario, Luigi or Yoshi, and therefore should be changed to be uniform with the likes of Bowser (character). This is unlike, for instance, Tom Sawyer, whose 'title' goes beyond that of merely a first name and is not merely 'Tom' - The same goes for the likes of Pac-man because that is an indistinguishable name. Of course, I understand that it's in Nintendo's favor that it remains this way, however for the sake of every other Mario, Luigi and Yoshi featured on Wikipedia this should not be the case. Sonic the Hedgehog, for instance, does not get exclusive rights to the page Sonic. --Crododon (talk) 20:06, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Agreed, the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC of Mario is undoubtedly currently under Mario (given name). Its this article title very likely fails to include a WP:WORLDVIEW.--Prisencolin (talk) 01:47, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
Si, si. The given name is the primary topic. Same for Luigi. Clarityfiend (talk) 07:56, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
Agreed obviously. Drake, Usher, and even Madonna have parenthesis around there names. And Mario, which is the given name of dozens of people, does not??? I think there is some "nerd culture" type bias around Wikipedia editors and looking through the archives, this has been a controversial topic for a long time, so I doubt it will be changed.

Nintendo Switch and Yoshi[edit]

Could you add information about the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey? Also, could Yoshi be considered a power up? Bcambri95 (talk) 20:50, 24 January 2017 (UTC)
