|Some characters of the Mario Series|
The Mario series is a series of highly popular and acclaimed video games by Nintendo, featuring Nintendo's mascot Mario and, in many games, his brother Luigi, who have to beat Bowser, the main antagonist, kidnapping Princess Peach, whom Mario saves. The series began in 1981 in the arcade game "Donkey Kong" where he has to beat a King Kong rip off known as Donkey Kong. As time went by he has became one of the world's best-known video game characters since 1985 after the release of Super Mario Bros on the NES. And after revolutionizing gaming, Mario did it again with Super Mario 64, dragging the industry into 3D for good.
The canon is a bit confused, but so the OP should usually specify which version they're using due to the large amount of video games in the series (Like Super Mario Bros 2 which is not even Super Mario Bros 2 at all and just another game known as Dream Factory: Heart-Pounding Panic. WTF?). There was a live action movie that came out in 1993 which was made of fail and several animated series, which are popular to use in parodies, mainly on Youtube.
Standing in the Battledome:
From an OBD standpoint, The Mario Bros series is very powerful and has strong feats like Giant Bowser (SMG2) that was able to survive inside a black hole busting Vortex, the Koopa Troop creating a machine that can make a entire galaxy and can destroy the universe if wrongly used, and The Lumas recreating the universe. Also the Marioverse has a Questionable Near/True omnipotent which is referenced as a "Force/Gentle Pull" who seemingly has the control over the destiny of the Main Marioverse, is above time & space itself, is so powerful that the combined laws of the universe can't stop it, was hinted that it is far stronger than the combined powers of the top tiers who are Universal+ and is possibly omnipresent (however all these feats were only measured through the words of Rosalina and powerscaling, thus leaving the true level of its powers unknown outside of speculation). The mainstream timeline even at its lowest end has multiple instances of city level+ and massively hypersonic+ feats and powerscaling, however, the 'verse usually runs on negative continuity, so powerscaling is fairly challenging and feats are inconsistent.
Nonetheless, it's over pretty powerful as it is a solid contender with Sonic the Hedgehog series.
