Referee Mario : NES

Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! - NES

Referee MarioReferee Mario

Mario cameos in the NES versions of Punch-Out!! and is not so friendly toward Little Mac. He will almost always side with the challenger. If you end up in a split decision it comes down to how many points you have, and it requires a lot of points to get that split decision. Mario also takes his time when counting down for your opponents, pausing as they get up, don't expect him to do this for you.


For whatever reason Nintendo decided not to bring him back for the Super Nintendo version, perhaps because the art style was different and they wanted a more arcade like feel to that game. NES Screenshot Referee Mario
