Mario is not a plumber anymore.

Mario Is Officially No Longer A Plumber
According to Mario’s newly updated, official Japanese-language profile, the iconic character isn’t working as a plumber. This shouldn’t be a total surprise, because the character seems to do everything but plumbing.

But doesn’t going down Warp Pipes count? Doesn’t appear so! Here is how the recently uploaded Mario profile explains the character:
All around sporty, whether it’s tennis or baseball, soccer or car racing, he [Mario] does everything cool. As a matter of fact, he also seems to have worked as a plumber a long time ago...
Mario hasn’t always been a plumber. According to Shigeru Miyamoto, the character, then named “Jumpman,” was “basically a carpenter” in 1981's Donkey Kong, because the game takes place on a construction site.

“With (1983's) Mario Bros., we brought in Luigi and a lot of the game was played underground so we made him to fit that setting and, we decided he could be a plumber,” Miyamoto previously told USA Today. “The scenario dictates his role.”

Think Mario was ever a real doctor?
First the Koopalings, now this? Next thing they're gonna tell us is that Mario and Luigi aren't actually related.

Given his experience, he can pretty much do whatever he wants at this point.

He was also a referee in Mike Tyson's Punch-Out.

So what happens to the cheesy cartoons and hilarious comics that all had Mario doing plumber hings?

I just like to think that Mario and Luigi pursued many odd jobs over the years. Carpentry. Plumbing. Medicine. Archaeology. Professional athlete. They just haven't found that special calling, you know?

I imagine Mario and his bro, Luigi, are bored millionaires (billionaires?) who try different things just because they can!! :D

Happiest faerie of VGF.
