Nintendo’s Mario is one of the most reversed characters in gaming and pop culture as a whole. It’s no secret that our favourite jump man has worn many hats – both literally and figuratively. However, some of the other jobs he’s held, especially given his relative lack of experience, have been…questionable to say the least. Let’s take a 15 of Mario’s strangest jobs other than plumbing (if he even does that anymore).
Doctor – Dr. Mario
Dr. Mario seems innocent enough from a gameplay perspective. Simply match the coloured capsules and defeat the viruses. From an ethical perspective though, it’s unbelievable. You have Mario, who clearly has no doctor’s license, simply feeding pills of any kind in the hope that something, anything will kill the viruses. It’s like a twisted game to him…which would explain a lot.
