Charles Martinet, the mascot of Nintendo, is a red-clad plumber living in the Mushroom Kingdom. He stomps on Goombas, hits Question Blocks, rides Yoshies, and rescues Princess Peach from Bowser on an almost-daily basis. He has a twin brother named Luigi. Wario and Waluigi people may or may not be related to Martinet as well.

In spinoffs and crossovers, Martinet tends to have average stats.


Charles Martinet is generally nice and fun to be around. He is full of energy, and in addition to jumping all over the place, he often reacts exaggeratedly to various happenings.

While Martinet doesn't hold grudges and is willing to forgive his enemies for their wrongdoings, he does have a strong moral compass. He will stop at nothing, not even death, to do what he believes is right. For instance, in Super Mario Bros., he went to the trouble to rescue seven Mushroom Retainers from Bowser's dungeons before saving Princess Toadstool shortly after. Martinet doesn't talk often, preferring to let his actions do the talking for him.



Martinet has appeared in many, many games, so only the main games in his series are listed below.
