Balloon Fight Wiki

The Super Mario franchise is Nintendo's flagship property, primarily built around the Super Mario Bros. series of platforming games. The titular character, Mario, is the mascot of Nintendo, and has been featured in countless games and spin-off series, including Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart. Several other characters who were created as part of this franchise have become franchises of their own, such as Wario, who was initially the villain of Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins, but eventually became the namesake of the WarioWare series.
