The man behind voicing the famous plumber, Charles Martinet, has voiced Mario an incredible 100 times. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate marks that important milestone in Martinet’s voice acting career. That’s just about 25 years of being Mario.

His first actual VA role was back in 1995 for the Mario’s Game Gallery, a collection of card and dice games. Since then, he has gone on to voice him in almost every game that Mario has made an appearance in. Martinet is the voice that many have grown up with and it’s genuinely tough to imagine anyone else voicing Nintendo’s iconic plumber.
