And later the same night Mario and Luigi, they went into the factory to look for them, but the thing is, they never came out either...
Phone Guy, Night 3

Mario is an antagonist in Five Nights at Wario's.


Mario looks like the typical version of Mario, but he has no visible head, and he has glowing, white eyes floating, along with a floating mustache and cap.


Mario becomes active on Night 4 and onward. At first, the player cannot see him on any camera. He will then appear in Entrance 1, before appearing in the player's desk monitor.

Mario passes through his stages on the desk monitor on random Monitor pull ups. He initially appears small on the desk monitor, until his face fills up the screen at which it will flicker. After one or two Monitor pull ups, Mario will appear in The Office. The lights in the room will flicker to indicate his presence. At this point, the player must pull up and back down the Monitor before Mario jumpscares the player. If you do that, Mario will disappear from the room, but he will appear on the desk monitor again to repeat his cycle. Just remember when his jingle plays, he will come up on the next stage the next time you pull down your monitor

It's worth noting that Mario will still progress through his stages even if the player doesn't pull up the Monitor for a long period of time, albeit his transition isn't shown. This can make Mario seem able to move straight from his first phase to The Office. Hence, if he pops up on the desk monitor, he will eventually appear in the room despite skipping phases.

Mario's jumpscare is him springing at the player with his arms outstretched.


Mario will only approach when you put down your camera, not when you pick it up, so you need to try to avoid checking the cameras as long as possible when he pops up. When it gets to about 5 AM, you should just close your doors and wait it out, not checking the cameras, as long as you have enough battery life. If Mario does pop up in the room, quickly bring the Monitor up, otherwise he will kill you.

  • Mario is similar to Golden Freddy in Five Nights at Freddy's, except the player can tell when he's coming.
  • Mario is the only character that had the same jumpscare for 3 games.
  • He is also the only one who doesn't have a head, or it may have been invisible.
  • Mario's music box plays the main theme to Super Mario Bros.
  • His head got chopped off by a murder.

Mario returns in Five Nights at Wario's 2.


Mario has the same design from the previous game. He has no head, white eyes, a floating mustache, and the original Mario attire.


Initially, he won't be encountered or seen in the cameras for the first night.

From Night 2-4, he can be seen in the Machinery, but he will not attack the player.

From Night 5, he becomes active. He appears in The Office, peeking at the player from the bottom of the room. He has phases like in the previous game, appearing distant at first and becomes closer in time. His music box might play when he does this. He would appear in The Office later, and the player must hide in the Backroom.

Mario's jumpscare consists of him springing towards the player, his arms outstretched.

  • Since Richard is possessed by Luigi then it makes sense for him to refer to Mario when he said "he's there" and "he's watching you," as Mario and Luigi are brothers, so of course Luigi would know if Mario is in the office. Plus, during the gameplay, Mario is on the ground and he appears to be watching you.

Mario is back in Five Nights at Wario's 3. His looks from the previous games remain unchanged.

Night 4 :

  • If the player hides in the Laundry, he will start in the Bedroom then move to the Living Room 2 then to the Staircase. The player will need to turn on the washing machine, otherwise he will kill the player.
  • If the player hides in the Playroom, he will appear on the screen, and will make a path to exit the screen. The player must pull up the Monitor if he's in the room. If you don't pull the Monitor up, or if its power runs out while you're winding the camera music box, then he will jumpscare you.
  • If the player hides in the Hallway, he/she must close the right door if Mario's music box plays in Bedroom 2 or if Mario appears in the hallway itself.

  • He is the only character who does not have a different jumpscare.
  • With Waluigi, he still has the same physical appearance.
  • If you look closely at his teaser for the third game, you'll notice that he actually seems to have pupils, albeit very faint.

Mario returns, once again in Five Nights at Wario's: Origins.


Mario has no change in appearance, but now has a different jumpscare.


Mario becomes active at Night 5. He will be hiding in the Basement, where you will need to watch him very often on cameras. Otherwise, he will exit the room and kill you. He also ignores the effects of the mushrooms found in the Storage. unlike the other games Mario will not go back through his stages making him much more of a threat.


  • It is revealed in this game that Mario can reach through the cameras.
  • He and Waluigi are the only characters to have the same design through the entire series.
  • Mario's real face/head is shown after night 6 in the ending.

Mario is back, once again, as an antagonist in Five Nights at Wario's 4.


Mario has the exact same design as the previous games.


Mario appears on Night 2, but he doesn't appear on any channel. Instead, Mario appears offscreen when the brightness or the power is turned off. He has three stages. He starts far away, looking down. Then he stands up, is closer and is looking straight at the player. His third and final phase consist of him having his arms in front of him, very close of exiting the TV. Once he bypasses that third step, he jumpscares the player, killing him/her in the process. The only way to repel Mario is to go to the Radio Channel and let the music play for a few seconds. This will make him disappear


  • This is the earliest Mario has appeared in the series.
