Colored and shaded because why not.

Also, added disclaimers and additional information/citations in the picture itself. I want to make sure people know I'm not just pulling this info out of my rear.

I also took out the top portion which is really unnecessary (and actually, now that I look back at it, it's kind of obnoxious). And I added my signature because I should. And I increased Little Mac's height a small amount to be a little more accurate (it's hard to really compare when the game isn't even out yet).  Aside from all that was stated above, everything is the same.

Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Rosalina, and Little Mac are © Nintendo.

I think I prefer Mario to be 5'01 for my canon. Just seems odd he would be the same height as Sonic.

Mario's not a Wise man, he's a Nintendo Man. (Wise man is the literal definition of Homo Sapiens, and Nintendo Man is a common name for Homo Nintendonus)

According to my own research with New Donkers (assuming a typical adult male is 5'10"), Mario would have to be 3'8" tall, which makes a lot of sense. He would weight 400-500 pounds if he was 5'1" and had appendages that big.

I disagree with this because Mario's 5' 01" height is not accurately measured in of itself, Nintendo just randomly said this and it's already outdated by now (because if Leader-Larry can be outdated now so can 5' 01" Mario)
I calculated Mario as much shorter (at first as around 2 feet tall but then I came across this interview - gonintendo.com/stories/293589-… which in this case means the New Donker's can't be midgets because they are supposed to be like the people around us, and I think hydrants can be 3 feet? so I recalculated Mario's height as 99 centimeters or 3 feet tall which fits well in my opinion)

I agree. Mario's even been next to Shaquille O'Neal in a Basketball game

When I recalculated Mario, he measures at 121cm which is around 4'00" making the New Donker males 196cm which is around 6'05", the more recent 121cm height I got for Mario seems very close to the same height that Mario measured when next to Shaquille O'Neal, his Odyssey height is just 18 centimeters shorter than the height Mario was in that basket ball game. I did at one point calculate 113.5cm which is 3'08" for Mario using the meter count in Balloon World, but I found out that I miss-measured that and that Nintendo was just drunk or something when making the meter count and just tried to make arguing with idiots over Mario's height a whole lot worse, so I went back to believing Mario was 121cm, and decided that the meter count in Balloon World means nothing because they were so lazy that they measured it in game units and Mario's model just coincidentally happened to be 153 units making Mario be 1.53m in Balloon World (which makes no sense) instead of taking what Mario's actual height would be and taking 153 / insert actual Mario height here * 100 = 1 in game meter (which would make a whole lot more sense to do that because you don't get people like Matpat taking it too seriously) 

oh yeah, I also found another interview that proves that Mario being a midget has to be Miyamoto's true vision on Mario - www.nintendolife.com/news/2017… he's basically saying that he was worried on how players would react to finding out that Mario was this short compared to normal people

Honestly, that's exactly how tall I imagined him being

If only the Mario franchise characters could stay consistent with their heights. Rosalina is unusually short in Super Mario 3D World. As for Mario, he's supposed to be taller than a Greninja (4'11"), and yet he's shorter than pretty much all the New Donk City residents in Super Mario Odyssey.

Clearly the New Donkers are giants, then.

poor Little Mac XD

Lil Mac's gonna need stilts to box her properly.

Actually if you compare Mario height with a human in Super Mario Odssesy right here: www.mariowiki.com/images/8/80/… he appears to be as tall as Sonic (3'3") meaning Rosalina should be about 4'11" which makes more sense but still slightly taller than Little Mac.

you are correct, I calculated Mario as 99 centimeters just a centimeter under Sonics height because it was confirmed right here by the Odyssey director - gonintendo.com/stories/293589-… it wasn't exactly confirmed in words, but this interview clearly states that New Donk City was realistic so it would be easier for users to measure Mario's jumps

My only best guess is that, they could be just freakishly huge.
ToxicIsland's avatar
Not according to this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4xW9a… which uses live action human actors with a 3 foot tall Mario, which is especially noticeable when the gaming mascot is with the Mariachi band.

At this goes different directions.

Or, more likely, the humans in super mario odyssey are giants.

Actually, New Donkers are humanoids.

If that's the case then Mario must have abnormally big appendages.

Luigi with short legs is really weird. why did they do that, just so it didn't make the game tricky when you switched characters?
Just-Call-Me-J's avatar
Too bad Mario isn't 5'4''. Then he'd be 64''. Seriously, how could Nintendo pass up that opportunity?
Gargomon251's avatar
Japan uses Metric.

So if anything he should be 164 centimeters.

Which, oddly, is about 64 1/2 inches, so....

Rosalina would be somewhere among the tallest women in recorded history (although she would be six or seven inches shorter than Zeng Jinlian). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeng_Jin… She should also worry about her life expectancy as the six real life tallest women in recorded history had an average lifespan of about 33 years with premature deaths likely caused by trying to support those enormous frames.
