Dr. Mario (character)
|Game Series||Dr. Mario|
|First Appearance||Dr. Mario (1990)|
|Japanese Name:||Dr. マリオ Dokutā Mario|
|Voice Actor(s):||Charles Martinet|
|Trademark:||Traditional doctor garb|
Dr. Mario is Mario as he appears in the few Dr. Mario games. He is not really a separate character, in the same way Young Link is not a separate character from Link. The only reason Mario was dressed up as a doctor is because it would let them use the image of pills and viruses, which is a more interesting way of making a puzzle game than just using normal colored blocks.
It's just Mario playing dress up. He appears in Super Smash Bros. Melee as an unlockable character as a Mario clone. Instead of fireballs, he throws Megavitamins. Otherwise, he's slower than Mario, but stronger.
