Pixelitis Picks: Mario’s most awe-inspiring jobs

Mario has quite an impractical resume for a plumber. While one would expect trade skills and safety procedure certification to highlight a plumber’s past work experience, Mario has extensive princess saving experience. And professional kart racing skills. Not to mention his more recent stints as an intergalactic astronaut.

In fact, just about every one of his vast array of jobs is much more glamorous than plumbing.

This weekend marks the release of New Super Mario Bros. 2 in North America, and once again Mario will be to putting his impressive Peach rescuing skills to the test. Along the way, it appears he’ll be collecting a million coins. With that much money, Mario might be able to retire comfortably from his plumbing, racing, painting, tennis, basketball, soccer and Olympic careers.

To celebrate his possible retirement, below are our favorite jobs we’ve helped Mario work. (3DS, Culture, GameCube, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Mario Kart 64, Mario Teaches Typing, New Super Mario Bros. 2, Retro, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Super Mario Sunshine, Wii)
