Mario is one of the main protagonists of the Flash movie series Super Mario Bros Z, created by Mark Haynes (aka most known as Alvin-Earthworm).
Mario is the hero of the Mushroom Kingdom and, on the 2006 timeline, he was racing on a Grand Prix with Luigi against the Wario Bros, when Bowser attacked them. After a long battle, Bowser took a Metal Mushroom and gained the uphand. When he was about to kill Mario, the capsule that contained Sonic and Shadow saved him.
Appearance and Personality
The SMBZ Mario is the same as the regular Mario, being a caucasian, slightly short and chubby man, with brown hair and a big moustache. His usual attire is a red shirt, blue overalls with yellow buttons, brown shoes, white glovs and a red cape. With power-ups the attire tends to change.
SMBZ Mario's personality is very much of what we see from his games. He is kind, brave, very smart, and very friendly. He is optimistic, often finding the best in situations and using them to his advantage. He has a strong sense of justice and morality, often putting the needs of others above his own as shown by his frequent battles against evil. He cares about all the other heroes, and is always willing to help them if they are hurt, even Shadow, who often insults him. He seems to have an overall friendly relationship with Sonic, often teaming up with him in fights, saving him from drowning in the Minus World, attempting to comfort him when he is saddened by Shadow's departure, and checking to make sure that he was okay when he fondly remembers flying with Tails. Mario holds a slight resentment against villains he has encountered before, and holds great resentment against those who hurt innocents, such as the Axem Rangers X. He is the most notable one who is mostly despised by the villains, such as Mecha Sonic and possibly Dr. Eggman.
He does have weaknesses in his personality, in that he is unwilling to allow others to be harmed as a result of his actions, such as being forced to concede a crushing victory over Bowser in Episode 2 due to Princess Peach being captured, or being unable to hit Basilisx in Episode 8 when he used a petrified Luigi as a shield against Mario's attacks.
