First Appearance Dr. Mario (1990)

Dr. Mario is an unlockable character in Mushroom Kingdom Showdown. He was added in v.0.5 as a clone character of Mario. It's often debated about whether if Dr. Mario is a full clone of Mario or not since his special moves function aesthetically differently.

Attacks Edit

Basic Moveset: Edit

  • Punch: By pressing the attack button, Dr. Mario will punch twice topped with lag at the end. This melee attack does 2 damage.
  • Cover: By pressing down and the attack button, Dr. Mario will cross his arms very quickly. This melee attack does 3 damage.
  • Aerial Kick: While in the air and pressing the attack button, Dr. Mario will do the exact same move as what Mario does in the air. This melee attack does 3 damage.

  • Megavitamin: By pressing the special button, Dr. Mario will shoot a Megavitamin at his enemy. This ranged attack deals 3 damage.
  • Flying Medication: By pressing down and the special button, Dr. Mario will spawn a flying Megavitamin right next to him, flying to the sky. This attack deals 3 damage.
  • Pill Spin: By pressing up and the special button, Dr. Mario will spin around (like the Mario Tornado) and start to hover. This attack deals 1 damage per hit.

Showdown Attack: Edit

  • Doctor Finale: Dr. Mario fires a large amount of Megavitamins in the direction he facing. A copy of the Mario Finale. This does 3 damage per pill.

Skin SwapsEdit

Dr. Mario has 4 skin swaps in the game: Red Dr. Mario, Black Dr. Mario, Brown Dr. Mario, and Teal Dr. Mario.

Attributes Edit

Dr. Mario is ranked 22nd in the tier list in the D tier, the lowest of the middleweights and the lowest of the Mario clones. Dr. Mario has one of the worst movesets in the game, having a jab with a lot of unnecessary ending lag, a down special that's hard to aim, and a dash attack that goes way too far across the stage (though its a decent escape move). On the other hand, he has a good projectile (that's best used on the ground, however), a decent crouching attack that activates really quickly, an amazing up special, and has some decent power. But however, Dr. Mario sadly isn't as practical as Mario or S. Mario because of his lackluster move-set and not being very viable compared to them.

Techniques Edit


When Dr. Mario launches a pill against a wall, it will bounce off of it. The pill will bounce back behind Dr. Mario. If you're too close to the wall, it will pass through. This also works with Mario.


Dr. Mario throwing a Pill at the wall (or firewalling).

Unlockability Edit


Clear Classic Mode with any character on Easy mode. In v1.0, In Normal.
