Mario Dodgeball also known as Super Mario Dodgeball in Japan, is a Mario sports game developed by Fantendo and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. It is the first game in it's series . It was released in Japan on December 5, 2013, in the U.S. and Europe on December 10 and in Australia on January 5, 2014.

Unlike the dodgeball mode in Mario Sports Mix, Mario Dodgeball's gameplay compared to the sports title, is more realistic and true to how dodgeball is played. The controls and way of playing are a lot different compared to the installment aswell.


The gameplay of Mario Dodgeball is very different compared to the gameplay of Mario Sports Mix's dodgeball. Players can choose from lots of unique and wacky characters and stages from the Mario series. The player chooses a team of 3 characters which plays against another team of 3. The players will go to their sides of the dodgeball arena and stay at the ends, until the Lakitu shouts "3, 2, 1, Dodgeball!" and then all players will run to the center to grab one of three balls on the middle line. Before throwing players must touch their end of the dodgeball arena with the ball to make the throw count, if a player fails to do this, the throw made with the ball does not count. If a player is hit by the ball Lakitu will confirm  that they are out and that character will go to the side of the arena, and make a line. If any players catch the ball the thrower is out and one player from the catcher's team is back in (this is the player who is first in line, or was first out). The match will end when there are no players left on a team's side of the arena or if the time has run out the team with the most players is the winner, if there are an equal amount the game goes to Sudden Death, any players out are back in. This round adds three more balls in and any players that go out must stay out, if a player catches the ball, the thrower is out like normal, but no one can return into the game.  In game, the player will play as one character and the others are computers, who are set to the same difficulty as the other team is.



Mario Dodgeball features 26 characters in total, 12 default characters and 14 secret characters who must be unlocked. Each character has a type which give them advantages and disadvantages, a special move and also a special ability.
