Mario's style of fighting is a mix of power, combos, and items. He uses hammers mostly, but he also has powerful punches, kicks and jumps. He uses the Kamehameha of his own when trying to help Piccolo defeat Mecha Sonic in this Super Form on Episode 89. Mario is often depicted as a balanced character, with considerable speed and power, however on several occasions he is seen as being slow to keep up with the fighting of Akuma and other villains. Mario is known to be one of strong characters on the Series.
Techniques and abilitiesEdit
Transformations- Mario is seen using many transformations within the series. Among these are:
Fire Mario- Mario's clothes change from blue and red to red and white, and he gains the ability to shoot fire from his hands. He can launch several weak ones in quick succession, or charge one up for a more powerful attack. It is suggested that his speed and power increase in this form, as he is able to dominate The Judgment Squad during the Onslaught Saga.
Super Mario - A yellow cape protrudes from Mario's back, allowing him to fly. The main increases are in Mario's speed and power as seen most of the battles.
Hammer- Mario's Ultra Hammer is one of his main weapons, and is seemingly summonable at will by him, no matter what his transformation. It is usually used as a finisher, or to charge an attack. It is quite powerful, capable of smashing opponents through mountains at high speed. However, it does not seem to be a very fast weapon, and is ineffective against armoured opponents
Spin Attack- Mario is sometimes seen using the Spin Attack, an attack where he spins around with his arms outstretched to gain many hits upon his opponents.
Mario's personality has not changed much from the games, and is possibly the least developed of all the heroes due to his lack of speech. He is optimistic, often finding the best in situations and using them to his advantage. He's generally more willing to solve a problem with action rather than analyze the situation. He has a strong sense of justice and morality, often putting the needs of others above his own as shown by his frequent battles against evil. He cares about all the other heroes, and is always willing to help them if they are hurt, even Vegeta, Renji and Shadow who often insults him.
He does have weaknesses in his personality, in that he is unwilling to allow others to be harmed as a result of his actions, such as his energy decreasing trying to take out the Strongest Villains, But failed, being forced to concede a crushing victory over Bowser in SMBZ due to Princess Peach being captured, or being unable to hit Basilisx in Episode 8 of SMBZ when he used a petrified Luigi as a shield against Mario's attacks.
