The older twin brother of Luigi, he was created by Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto and has appeared in over 200 games. Originally, he only appeared in platform games, but now also features in sporting, racing, fighting, and others. He is considered by many to be the most famous character in video game history and is known to many as “The Face of Video Games,” having six games out of the top 10 on the list of best-selling video games of all time.
He has been currently voiced by Charles Martinet since Mario Teaches Typing and Mario’s Game Gallery/Fundamentals. In the TV show You’re Skitting Me, he was played by Hayden McKertish, while Rowan Hills played Luigi.
