  • Super Mario Bros. (1985) - 32 KB of program; 8 KB of graphics. According to the Guinness Book of World Records [1], SMB is the best-selling game of all time.
  • Tennis (1985) - Mario was the referee.
  • Wrecking Crew (1985) - Mario is the protagonist, but gameplay is unrelated to other Mario games. Many NES games featured Mario as a character, even though the game may not have fit the theme of the series.
  • Golf (1985) - Mario's first foray into golf.
  • Mario Bros. (1986) - Originally an arcade game released by Nintendo in 1983. In the subsequent years it was released on various home systems, including the NES in 1986. The game is notable for being the last Nintendo title to appear on a non-Nintendo console, having appeared on the Atari.
  • Pinball (1987) - Mario appears in the Bonus stage, where he maneuvers a platform to keep the ball from getting away, and then catch the Princess when she falls from above.
  • Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! (1987) - Mario is the referee.
  • Super Mario Bros. 2 (1988) / Super Mario Bros. USA (1992 in Japan only) - Released at first in markets outside of Japan, this is a modified version of a Japanese game called Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic with some of the graphics replaced by Mario-themed graphics. This game tends to be overlooked by some Mario fans as being the runt; some of the characters introduced in this game have now become staples of the Mario world, including Bob-ombs, Snifits, Pokey the Cactus, Ostros (later renamed Birdo), and Shy Guys.
  • Super Mario Bros. 3 (1988 Japan, 1990 US) - Mario gains several new abilities, including the first appearance of his ability to fly. Also of note is that this is the best selling video game that was not bundled with a console.[2]

Famicom Disk System

  • Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels (1986) - Released initially in Japan on the Famicom Disk System as Super Mario Bros. 2, this used a slightly modified version of the original SMB engine with much harder levels. The Lost Levels was created when this game was released outside Japan in Super Mario All-Stars, without the 2. Nintendo did not believe that it would sell well in the US, as the game was voted "too hard" by 94% of a survey of 250 Americans,[citation needed] and the game was not seen in America until the SNES release, albeit with updated graphics. The original version would not be released outside of Japan until October 2007 for the Wii's Virtual Console, a full twenty one years after it was released in Japan.
  • All Night Nippon Super Mario Bros. (1986) - Japan only. A version of the original Super Mario Bros. with graphics changed to feature radio personalities from a popular Japanese radio station. The game is also heavily based on The Lost Levels.
