Nintendo's star character Mario has been in over 70 games. 70 GAMES!!! Which leads to the question, does the Super Mario series have a discernible timeline? Or are Mario games, like many have been led to believe, a random assortment of games with no attention paid to continuity. While this may ultimately be true, there ARE details in the Super Mario games that allow them to be pieced into a timeline order...and the implications of that are SHOCKING!

Wait, so Wario Land 1-4 are all canonically the latest games in the series? Because according to Wario Land 1, Wario goes searching for treasure on an island and it gets picked up by Mario last minute, then Wario gets his own castle by Wario Land II. hMmMmM

Alright, time to make a theory to add to this theory. The current Mario and Luigi actually have a sister, aka current Pauline. You also have to realize that we don't see everything going on in Mario's life (that's just stalking. Seriously, imagine seeing a lakitu holding a camera in your face 24/7/365), so he could have very well saved his sister on an adventure we never see. She could have then decided "you know what? I don't need my brother saving my life all the time, I'm no Peach. I'm gonna go out into the world and become the mayor of a humongous modern city." And that is why we find her in New Donk City. BAM! Odyssey Pauline explained!

Interesting how this theory doesn't hold up, anymore, since Mario Odyssey. Also, Nintendo confirmed that Pauline in Oddysey is the same Pauline from Donkey Kong, which would kind of throw a wrench into the theory, unless she is some sort of non-human creature that never ages.

This doesn’t make sense because in Mario kart wii in one of the maps, there is a giant statue of Princess Daisy and Luigi holding hands. Maybe Mario kart is set before super Mario galaxy.....I dunno

If Mario Odyssey was out when this video was made everything would be confusing. Because in odyssey Mario and Pauline are around the same age. Unless that Mario’s dad doing odyssey.

The circus/plumber guy thingy you say is mario s father it s actually mario because in mario odyssey the mayor of new donk city mentions that she is the one mario has saved from crancky kong(she s also addressing to you obviously), unless, mario odyssey happens in the past and you play as mario s father!

My personal head canon is a little different. First, Mario is a plumber in Mario bros, until he finds a portal to the mushroom kingdom. He saves peach in super Mario bros, but when he goes home he dreams of adventure (smb2 us). He decides to create a stage show, smb3. Mario 3 is a huge success, and Mario gets an offer to make a movie, sm64, and two tv shows, super Mario world and super Mario sunshine. By this point, Mario is quite rich, and he decides to start a toy company in the Mario vs donkey Kong games. By now, Mario hasn’t gone on a real adventure for decades, but that all changes when Mario decides to visit Peach again. Bowser is angry that Mario has made a fool out of him in his shows, and has come to take his revenge. This leads to either galaxy or 3d world/land. That’s about as far as I’ve gotten in the timeline. Mario is an actor/writer who really hasn’t gone on many adventures. When he goes go-karting, or plays golf, or has parties, he’s doing it with his film crew.

Taking inspirations from the Zelda timeline. There are three timelines that is effected by the events of yoshi's island. Either he is delivered to a different family and becomes a plumber,either he arrives to his biological father and becomes a carpenter or he arrives to the mushroom kingdom and becomes the Mario we all know and love.

Now that Odyssey is out does this mean that the Mario featured in Odyssey is actually Jumpman? Or is Pauline actually Pauline's daughter?

Um actually, birdo makes there first appearance in super Mario 3, but we don’t see them being born. This means that super Mario 3 must come after super Mario rpg. So there is a small flaw in the timeline.
