Mario has had many careers over the years.


Around 35 years ago, Mario made his debut in Donkey Kong as a carpenter, according to Shigeru Miyamoto.

“I am so lost…”

“With (1983’s) Mario Bros., we brought in Luigi and a lot of the game was played underground so we made him to fit that setting and, we decided he could be a plumber,” Miyamoto previously told USA Today. “The scenario dictates his role.”

Between all the blue color careers he has had, I wonder how he found the time to go to medical school? I mean this guy is nearly as busy as Dwayne Johnson!
