NES Mario (also known as Retro Mario, 8-Bit Mario or Pixel Mario) is a pixellated NES version of the famous video game character, Mario. Usually, his appearance is based off of the original Super Mario Bros. game from 1985, but his variations from other titles may be used as well.
It is unknown how exactly he retains his blocky appearance in the games he appears in, but some say he comes from an alternate dimension where everything is pixellated like him.
