Dr. Mario Online Rx
Dr. Mario Online Rx is a puzzle video game starring Dr. Mario released on May 26, 2008 in North America and March 25, 2008 in Japan for WiiWare. This game features Miis as playable characters and has Wi-Fi capabilities.
The series' main protagonist, Dr. Mario, is a hidden character, serving as a clone of Mario. Dr. Mario's trademark item, the Megavitamin, is used as his Standard Special Move; it is also used in his taunt. Also, one of his theme songs, Fever, is included in the game.
Dr. Mario was removed from Brawl as a playable character, likely due to being a clone. Dr. Mario and the viruses in the games are stickers in the game, and his song used in Super Smash Bros. Melee is used in the PictoChat stage in Brawl, as well as other of these, Chill.
Dr. Mario reappears as a playable veteran in this game.
