Posted on June 26, 2011 | 3 CommentsMario's unique appearance, believe it or not was unintentional. Mario looks the way he does today due to 1981's immature graphics technology. Miyamoto was having difficulty making Mario's hair move realistically in the game so he simply gave him a red hat. Mario's nose wasn't showing up very well on the screen, so Miyamoto gave Mario a mustache and over-sized nose to make it more noticeable.
