Dr. Mario (Dr. マリオ Dokutā Mario?) is a doctor-costumed version of Mario that was the star of his eponymous game for the NES, Game Boy, and SNES. He also stars in Dr. Mario 64 for the Nintendo 64, Dr. Mario and Puzzle League for the Game Boy Advance, Dr. Mario Online Rx, which is a new game for Wii's Wii Ware and Dr. Mario Express, which is a new game for the DSi's DSiWare. He was introduced in Super Smash Bros. Melee, where he is an unlockable character. However, he is not included in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and then included once again as an unlockable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

Character description

Dr. Mario is simply Mario garbed in a doctor's uniform, equipped with his powerful "Megavitamins" to fight against viruses (Blue, Red And Yellow Viruses). He originated in the 1990 NES/Game Boy game.

In Super Smash Bros.

In the original, Dr. Mario was briefly mentioned in Mario's biography, among his many other past professions.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee

Drmario - Super Smash Bros. Melee

As a Playable Character

Main article: Dr. Mario (SSBM)

Dr. Mario appears in Super Smash Bros. Melee as one of the thirteen new characters introduced. He is a secret character and considered to be a "clone" of Mario, since he is a slower, yet stronger version of Mario. While not many significant differences exist between the two characters, there are a few - the main one being that rather than shooting Fireballs as his Neutral B move, he throws Megavitamins. The subtle differences between Dr. Mario and Mario work to Dr. Mario's favor in the competitive scene, and place him slightly higher on the current tier list.

In Single-player

Trophies

Dr. Mario, like the rest of the playable characters, has three different trophies dedicated to him. The Viruses from the Dr. Mario game also appear as a trophy. His Classic mode trophy is as follows:

Dr. Mario

Dr mario

Immaculate in his medical garb, Dr. Mario destroys killer viruses with his amazing vitamin capsules. With his dedicated nurse, Princess Peach, at his side, Dr. Mario spends day and night in his laboratory working on new miracle cures. Somehow he's managed to keep up with all the new viruses that have arisen over the years.

  • Dr. Mario, 10/90

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl

DM

Dr. Mario Sticker from Brawl.

Songs (not avalible as fighter)

Dr. Mario receives representation in Brawl with two songs:

Sticker

He is also a sticker compatible to Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser and Yoshi.

Hacking

Hacking has revealed partial programmed data in Brawl for Dr. Mario. Some take this as signs of a planned character, but it is also likely, if not more so, that it was there for referential purposes by the programmers, or data imported from Super Smash Bros. Melee. He also may have been an alternate costume for Mario.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

Dr. Mario - Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U
Main article: Dr. Mario (SSBWU/3DS)

After his absence in Brawl, Dr. Mario returns in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U as an unlockable playable character.

He uses his Melee moveset once again, plus a Final Smash: Dr. Finale. It is the same as Mario Finale, but instead of Fireballs, Dr. Mario launches two giant-sized Megavitamins.
