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 [[Fireball]]s as his [[Neutral B]] move, he throws [[Megavitamin]]s.

Dr. Mario was one of the five playable characters in ''Melee'' who did not return as a playable character in ''Brawl''. Instead, his only appearance in the game is as a single sticker that can only be used to power up characters from the {{uv|Mario}} series and Yoshi. Additionally, he is referenced with the inclusion of "Dr. Mario (Melee)" as an immediately available music track for [[PictoChat]], and the inclusion of "Chill (Dr. Mario)" as an unlockable music track for [[Flat Zone 2]].

For fighter info, see Dr. Mario (SSBM), Dr. Mario (SSBWU/3DS), and Dr. Mario (SSBU). For the universe, see Dr. Mario (series) or for the game itself, see Dr. Mario (game).

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 was a new game for Wii's Wii Ware and Dr. Mario Express, which is a new game for the DSi's DSiWare. His most recent game is Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure for the 3DS. 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 in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Character descriptionEdit

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.Edit

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

In Super Smash Bros. MeleeEdit

As a playable characterEdit

Drmario - Super Smash Bros. Melee
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.

TrophiesEdit

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.

There's hardly any difference in the abilities of Mario and Dr. Mario, so choosing is largely a matter of taste.

The differences between Dr. Mario and Mario are more pronounced in some areas than others, but basically they can be played in a similar fashion. While it may be hard to spot the contrasts, they do exist. For example, Dr. Mario's Super Sheet is longer and narrower than Mario's cape, and any opponents hit by Dr. Tornado will fly off in diverse directions.

In Super Smash Bros. BrawlEdit

Dr. Mario Sticker from Brawl.

Dr. Mario was one of the five playable characters in Melee who did not return as a playable character in Brawl. Instead, his only appearance in the game is as a single sticker that can only be used to power up characters from the Mario series and Yoshi. Additionally, he is referenced with the inclusion of "Dr. Mario (Melee)" as an immediately available music track for PictoChat, and the inclusion of "Chill (Dr. Mario)" as an unlockable music track for Flat Zone 2.

HackingEdit

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 UEdit

As a playable characterEdit

Dr. Mario SSB4
Main article: Dr. Mario (SSBWU/3DS)

After being absent from Brawl, Dr. Mario returned as an unlockable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. He retains his moveset from Melee, but now possesses a Final Smash called Doctor Finale, which functions similarly to Mario's Mario Finale, but instead launches two giant-sized Megavitamins that deals more damage. Dr. Mario was originally planned to be an alternate costume for Mario, but was given his own character slot due to wanting to appeal to his Melee fanbase.

TrophiesEdit

In the 1990 puzzle game Dr. Mario, Mario threw on a white coat and decided to take a shot at that whole "medicine" thing. In this game, he's a balanced fighter who can throw Megavitamin capsules and nimbly deflect blows with his Super Sheet.
