Referee Mario
July 2005
BiC #2 0.7mm mechanical pencil, Expo Vis-à-Vis wet erase fine point pen
Colors by ~PHN001D-Deck.

Ladies and a-gentlemen! The World a-Video a-Boxing Association is-a so proud a-to present-a... Puuunch Ouuut!! Hoo-hoo!

As if the crossover-tastic nature of Mario being the referee in the original Punch Out!! games for the NES isn't good enough, this picture contains a host of Nintendo characters who are all in the audience, since I didn't want to draw a bunch of anonymous faces. This calls back to the Kirby Super Star arena matches that populated the stands with recognizable characters, and as such, Kirby himself is present as well... somewhere!

In Warioware: Smooth Mooves, there is a microgame where Mario is a referee and you have to swing down three times to make him tap 1,2,3.

If he ever does return, I bet he would be pretty enthusiastic with Charles Martinet's Italian-accented voiceover.

Yippie, Referee Mario!!
