Mario might be one of the most recognizable video game characters of all time, but do you know where Mario originated? If you guessed that the Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo had something to do with it, you would be partially right. Even though the Order has its hands in most of the worlds big time events, they did not play a role in ALL of the events, rather might have just been around to consult. The fictional character from the most popular video games from Nintendo started back in the early 1980’s once he was created by a Japanese video game designer. The issue is, where did the idea for the loveable video game character come from?
The Order was consulted on the creation of Mario and that can be traced down to the fact that Mario says “Woohoo” when he jumps into the air. Getting his claim to fame start back in the Donkey Kong days, Mario was trained and ordered to follow strict rules while acting in video games. He could only look forward when running and the only goal on his mind was to rescue the Princess Peach. It was later in the years that the Order allowed him to appear more 3D and life-like in video games like Super Mario 64. It was at that time he was given other tasks that included rescuing the Princess Peach, but it was not going to be as easy as running and climbing up some ladders.
