Poor Mr. drunk Goomba's third cousin twice removed's former roommate.

He does not appear in the games, movie, cartoon, comics, or anything. He just appears in a page of a bootleg Brazilian comic. 

More people should read the bootleg Brazilian Super Mario comic! It's awesome! Not only it has Mario marrying Peach and Luigi marrying Daisy, but it has a 3rd brother, Zerìus, marrying Rosalina! Sonic appear and so do his friends Tails, Amy Rose, Knuckles, and Shadow. There's also the Chris kid from the Sonic X anime but he's also a Pokèmon trainer apparently, he has a "Vernachu" who is a talking green Pikachu but without the stripes on the back, but wearing a red "Scottish-patterned" bandana on the neck and some rave goggles. Vernachu does not use Pokèmon attacks, but he's the "voice of reason" and does quite a few "human" things. Link and Zelda are there (actually Link and Toon Link are 2 diff. people\siblings and so are the Zelda's.), so is Samus, Popo & Nana, and the Pokèmon Trainers, who are Gary, Ash, Misty, Brock, and a girl who looks somewhat like a recolor of the Leafgreen chick and is named Tenah Ketchum, apparently Ash's twin or cousin or something. And everyone of them goes to some high-school whose sole teacher is a gray\light-blue Bowser recolor, named Naffahn. And the colors are all SUPER bright. Seriously. Animal Crossing's animals often appear as background characters, along with various recolored Goombas, Koopas, and other monsters from the Mario series. And yeah, Pokèmon overworld sprites are also used as BG. And everyone seems to have a lot of random superpowers, like they turn into Super Sayans randomly (and Goku and Vegeta teach them in person), and Daisy\Peach\Rosalina\Amy Rose\Tenah are a magical girls team named "Sailor Tendo". Except that they're only the "main five" as every other female (AND MALE) character can turn into SailorTendos. Also there's a page listing Naffahn's class, peeps seem to have weird-ass surnames there.

1: Mario Superbro
2: Luigi Superbro
3: Zerìus Superbro
4: Peach Toadstool
5: Daisy Sarasaland
6: Rosalina BrihlaStela Luma
7: Tails Miles Prower
8: Sonic R
9: Knuckles Lopez
10: Amelia Rose
11: Christopher Sora (Yes, he's the same person as Sora from KH, somehow.)
12: Vernachu Sora
13: Shadow 
14: Link Garcia
15: Toonlink Garcia
16: Zelda Hyrule
17: Toonzelda Hyrule
18: Popo Climber
19: Nana Climber
20: Samus Aran\Metroid (her surname is Metroid when she has the orange suit thing but Aran otherwise)
21: Gary Carvalho
22: Ash Ketchum
23: Tenah Ketchum
24: Misty WaterFlower
25: Brock Peters
26: Kylie Kairi Oceanos (AKA Kairi from KH...)
27: Rick Riku Landblast (And Riku too. Of course they only appear when Chris Sora does.)
28: Pedro Goomba
29: Gimmy Koopa
30: Miky Mendoza (Yes, a really creepy version of a poorly drawn Mickey Mouse. Hangs out with creepy unnamed versions of Donald and Goofy while their KH versions are considered separate characters altogether)

And yeah this is the official listing for the class. Of course Namine, Xion, Roxas, quite a bit of backgrounders, have also been in the class at different times, including Creepy Donald and Creepy Goofy (yes these are their names apparently) and other characters from Pokèmon and other Nintendo or even other videogames like Final Fantasy or whatever. Even IRL people have been in the class. SANTA CLAUS, RUDOLPH THE REINDEER, and TWO CHRISTMAS ELVES named Joe and Bobbin, were also in the class during Christmas special. Jesus himself has been in the class. My Little Ponies have been in the class. Digidestined have been in the class with their Digimon's. NEOPETS have been in the class. Goku, Usagi\Sailor Moon, Shin-chan, and other anime characters and crossover characters have been in the class too. Doctor Who crossover episode? At least 1 or 2 of the Doctor's with their companions (not necessarily in that incarnation. Heck, once it was the Fourth Doctor with Haruhi Suzumiya, a G1 MLP, and some chibi catgirl fanart, all pretending to be his companions AT ONCE. All of them IN THE SAME CLASS.) will be in the class, with Mario, Luigi, & Peach (Daisy was introduced as part of a diff. class but entered Mario's class right after being introduced) being the only permanent members of it.

Very nice.
GaiaMIX Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2014  Student Digital Artist
And that's only the tip of the iceberg!

Yeah, because the Super Mario\Zelda\Metroid\Star Fox\Pokèmon\Animal Crossing\Kid Icarus\etc. games are videogames in their world, but their characters exist in the world as classmates. 

Also, this comic seems to have a very poor grasp on genetics.

Once they had to bring a Koopa to his parents, who were a black-and-white still of two human dancers. 

When Mario and Peach had a kid, he was basically a Paper Mario sprite sized to be around waist-height to the scene's main human character, and recolored in light blue and reddish pink clothes with LIGHT TEAL hair and BROWN skin. And his name was... Peario Chushroom Superbro-Toadstool. No, really. "Pearito" also was apparently psychic in a 4rth-wall breaking way, for 5 pages was thought to be the chosen one of an ancient prophecy (whose "chosen one" was actually a portable red flower-irrigator with googly eyes on it, named Chiczo50o. No, really.), went to Elementary School basically one day after having been born (and had the speech and motorial capabilities of an adult, as well as basically acting like a lazy, imaginative 18-years-old nerd with a poor grasp on reality. And TWO DAYS after being born, he was apparently in high school, in the same class as his parents. And then they went on a vacation to Indigo (Both the Pokemon regions and the places they're based on exist on their planet somehow. And thus the location of the Red & Blue Pokèmon Games is called indigo instead. But they were'nt in a location that's actually in the Pokèmon games. They were in Chocola Town which is apparently a town made entirely of chocolate which is in the middle of Indigo.) some Animal Crossing-styled anthropormized Eevee gave him some light teal recolor of a Thunder Stone. And guess what? Peario grew LIGHT TEAL EEVEE EARS & TAIL. And he stayed this way for the rest of the comic's duration.

And for the rest, a "Stork" (which is apparently just a dark indigo, star-patterned Rosalina riding a broom. And she apparently is also Rosalina's mother as she created her from a Luma. Her name is Cegonha BrilhaStela, actually.) apparently just made most of the characters (or at least the non-Pokèmon ones) out of Lumas  and then dropped them off to empty houses that seemed to be specially made from them. And yeah, technically that would mean they're all related in some way. But whatever, Mario only has Luigi and Zerius as his bro's, because all 3 of them were dropped off at the same home and stayed there. And yeah, Cegonha is notable for being one of the only (speaking) characters (if you do not count Naffahn and some of the sprites\ponies\AC characters) to never have been in the class. 

And once we see a family tree in which apparently, a Goomba and a Koopa had Mint the AC squirrel as their kid, then a Neopet and a Digimon had the (floating head of) some character drawn in Sugimori Pokèmon style, and then Mint and the head guy had the monkey of Chris Griffin's closet as their own kid. And then Naffahn explained it as "A baby's appearance a lot of times has more to do with destiny than how the parents actually look. The more heartful of people have babies resembling them more."

Except that the only 2 people to seem to be born through other means than the Luma thing, are Peario and the Koopa.

(And well, Roxas, Namine, and Xion, since their relation is explained in a footnote to be basically the same as the KH versions.)

BTW, Brock, Misty, Tenah, Ash, and Gary all live together... in "Nintencity"'s local Pokèmon gym, whose Gym Leader is a Mario recolor named "Mr. Nintendo". He also seems to live with them.

Popo and Nana live together in an igloo.

Zelda and Toonzelda live in Hyrule Castle while Link and Toonlink live in an house in the woods.

Roxas, Namine, Xion, Kairi, and Riku live in a tropical treehouse on the beach.

Chris, Sonic, Shadow, Amy, Tails, Knuckles, Silver, Cream, Vernachu, and two Chao's all live in a circus' abandoned rollercoaster.

Samus lives in a starship, but sometimes parks it on Earth's moon and visits Nintencity. Falco, Starfox, Solid Snake, Master Chief, a lesbian lover who is also an Asari (and her name is Tevah), Chell from Portal, Gordon Freeman, Alyx Vance, some Aquarium Metroids, and a somewhat-cyborgized Pikachu, have all lived with her at different times.

Rosalina and Zerius (and all the remaining Lumas) live on a castle on the same Earth's moon.

Peach and Daisy live in Mushroom Palace.

And finally, Mario, Luigi, and Peario, live in an house made from a really large mushroom, which may look nothing but a Smurf house with a few green tubes on the outside, but is actually a really cute and colorful mansion on the inside.

Naffahn seems to live alone in some apartment. 

Cegonha seems to live in basically outer space, the Christmas (and other holiday) people seem to live in some gingerbread house in the North Pole.

And everyone else seems to live whenever they want to live.

...It took me far longer than I like to admit to realize that they were walking away from the Seven Eleven.

Didn't they just announce Diddy as a playable character in the new Smash?
AndyKluthe Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2014  Professional
Yeah, they did!
PainfulElegy Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wasn't there a DK Slurpee promotion a while ago, everyone knows nintendo doesn't do the same thing twice!
AndyKluthe Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2014  Professional
If you mean in 1983, then yet.
PainfulElegy Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
(Yeh, it's the 1983 one, I was just hyperbolizing in that case)
TheHandsomeRockLee Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2014
A slushie promotion would've been the smart way to go. I'm still buying it though.
StrongSeanMann Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wasn't that commercial a joke and it was made in SFM?
AndyKluthe Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2014  Professional
Looks like yes, someone did make a fake commercial in SFM.

I believe Jeremy Parish also joked about it in an E3 interview.  As well as numerous comments from users on sites like Neogaf and IGN.
StrongSeanMann Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It really had a huge impact huh
