how did mario die?
If you're not that good at Mario games or you come up against a really hard enemy or something in that neighborhood, then, yes, Mario may end up dying. Outside of that, I think Bowser kills him at the beginning of Paper Mario, but the Star Spirits are able to revive him after the fall. Also, in Super Paper Mario, Dimention sends the four heroes to the Underwhere, the world of ended games, but Queen Jaydes later clarifies that you were sent there while still very much alive. And, of course, there are a lot of instant-kill opportunities made available throughout the Paper Mario games, and Mario can die through all of them if you so desire. 15:57, December 6, 2013 (UTC)
