Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is Charles Martin's 100th credit like Mario


Charles Martinet, voted for Mario for almost 25 years, received more than just a certificate from Guinness World Records – they made a category just because they could honor him. His voice came in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is officially the 100th time he performed in a video game like Nintendo's frontman and yes it's actually a record.

Nolan North, as a comparison, would need star in 95 more Uncharteds like Nathan Drake, or 95 other Assassin's Creeds as Desmond Miles to break Martin's move on this brand (he has been in six matches). We do not think it will happen anytime soon. So, I suggest both Martinet as a record holder (officially, it is "Most Video Game Transitions of the Same Character") and that the record is unavailable.

It is more remarkable to Super Smash Bros. Final marks an even 100 times Martinet has appeared in a video game like voice Mario, per Guinness. I went to check other sources and databases – no official, it has to be said – to see if I could count them all. I came up with 98 on IMDB (again: unreliable as a quote, but a good rule of thumb) and then 90 on Wikipedia (same caution).

Most agree that Martin's first Mario role so far was 1995 Mario's Game Gallery, an anthology of common cards and dice games for PC. Fans maybe more associate their first real role as 1996's Super Mario 64. As for any shortcomings or differences, may it be that certain roles like Baby Mario (for example, four in Yoshi's Island Series) have counted? Who knows.

But Guinness is a quote source and it says that Martinet has done the job 100 times, so that's good enough for me. Congratulations to Martinet, who is not only Mario's voice, he was also on Matlock Another thing Nolan North has not done.
