Over the years, Mario has become a jack of all trades, dabbling in tennis, soccer, baseball, golf, and more, leaving him little time to do his actual job, which is plumbing. Turns out, the famous Nintendo mascot has had so much time for new hobbies because he’s no longer a plumber. Which begs the question: Was he fired? Did he quit?
On Nintendo’s Japanese website, his official profile mentions his past life as a plumber, but says he’s moved on to bigger and better things.
All around sporty, whether it’s tennis or baseball, soccer or car racing, he does everything cool. As a matter of fact, he also seems to have worked as a plumber a long time ago…
So, basically, Mario just wasn’t about that plumber life anymore. You can still find him going down Warp Pipes, just don’t expect him to make any more house calls when your toilet is broken.
In truth, Mario’s occupation has changed more than once over the years. In fact, Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of Mario, said the character was billed as a carpenter when he showed up in 1981’s Donkey Kong. He’s also played a doctor. Then again, so has Joey Tribbiani in Friends.
Personally, I liked Mario best as the cleanup guy in Super Mario Sunshine. But now that he’s moved to New Donk City, he seemingly has better things to do.
