Super Mario (スーパーマリオ) is the main series of video games in Nintendo's Mario franchise. The games in the series generally featured Italian-American plumber Mario and his brother Luigi as they often save Princess Peach and the Mushroom Kingdom from Bowser, King of the Koopas.
- Though the show lacked a crossover with the Super Mario series, sound effects and background music from Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Bros 2 were used during the first season. In addition, the term Warp Zones were used as a name for portals in Videoland.
- As Duo goes through the Wily Egg, a Goomba (longtime minions from the Mario franchise) is shown among Mets, Buzz Bombers and Moto Bug.
- In the back up story "Consequences" one of Dr. Eggman's monitors is on a site titled "Mustacio Afficionado" (spelled with an extra f). The site shows a glimpse of both Mario and Luigi, as well as Dr. Light and Dr. Wily.
Mega Man and Dr. Light appeared alongside Mario in a few comics.
