Template:Character-infobox Metal Mario is an independent character in the Mario universe, usually being one of the fiercer end-game opponents in the Mario sport games or Super Smash Bros. series. It is spun-off from Metal Mario, which is a form of Mario, rather than a distinct character. Unlike Mario, Metal Mario often plays the role of Mario's rival.
Super Smash Bros. seriesEdit
Super Smash Bros.Edit
In Super Smash Bros., Metal Mario is a stubborn mid-boss encountered before the game's final boss. Like the Fighting Polygons, he has his own stage. He is far less powerful, and is susceptible to much more damage than in Super Mario 64. Nevertheless, he is a much more durable character than the regular Mario. Heavier and more resistant to knockback in general than any other character in the game, he's very difficult to beat. In fact, only when Metal Mario's damage exceeds 180% can he be knocked down.
On a side note, Kirby can't copy Metal Mario's powers, which was later possible to do in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

In this game, Metal Mario fights alone by default, but if the player unlocks Luigi, Metal Luigi joins the fray as well. Additionally, players can pick up the Metal Box item, turning into metal forms, boasting the same attributes as Metal Mario and Metal Luigi.
KOing Metal Mario and Metal Luigi in Adventure Mode awards the player 8000 points.
Dr. Mario 64Edit
Metal Mario is also the final boss of Wario's storyline in Dr. Mario 64. In this game, Metal Mario can be unlocked as a playable character by beating the entire Story Mode with Wario without losing once.
Mario Kart 7Edit
Metal Mario makes an appearance as an unlockable character in the Nintendo 3DS title Mario Kart 7 and is unlocked by winning the 150cc Special Cup. He is a heavy-weight character with an advantage bonus of weight and some speed. He is one of four drivers to enter the Mario Kart series for the first time. His signature symbol/logo is a shiny, metal version of the famous M.
