Mario is a video game franchise created by Nintendo and Shigeru Miyamoto. The titular protagonist, Mario, is considered the most recognizable video game character of all time, rivalled only by Pac-Man, Sonic and Pikachu. The franchise originates from the arcade platform game Donkey Kong (1981), which stars Mario as the player character trying to rescue Pauline from the villain Donkey Kong, before Mario appeared again as a player character in the arcade game Mario Bros. (1983).

The franchise consists of several sub-series in different genres, including racing, sports, role playing, puzzle, party, and even has games starring Mario side characters like Luigi and Captain Toad. The main core series, Super Mario, began with the platformer game Super Mario Bros. (1985) on the Nintendo Entertainment System. The main games consist of Mario trying to rescue Princess Peach from the villain Bowser and saving the Mushroom Kingdom.

As of March 2022, the Mario video game franchise has sold more than 830 million units worldwide, making it the best-selling video game franchise of all time. The main Super Mario series alone has sold more than 430 million copies worldwide.

The Mario franchise is estimated to have grossed more than $55 billion worldwide, making it one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time and the second highest-grossing video game franchise (after Pokémon). The Mario video games grossed more than $45 billion, including over $25 billion from the main Super Mario series alone, in addition to nearly $10 billion grossed from other media and merchandise outside of video games. In addition, Mario videos on YouTube have received more than 100 billion views worldwide, as of April 2023.
