This page shows all of the running gags that appear throughout the series. This could range from within a game series within the series itself (like the Paper Mario series) or from the whole series itself.
Running Gags Throughout the Entire series
- Bowser kidnapping Princess Peach with Mario (and/or Luigi) having to save the day. This occurs in many games and is usually the main plot of the entire series.
- Peach getting kidnapped in general whether if it's by Bowser or some other character (like Sir Grodus, Princess Shroob, Antasma, etc.)
- In most games, the final level of a certain video game is usually Bowser's Castle (or any other Bowser-related location such as Neo Bowser Castle from Mario & Luigi: Dream Team).
