Today is March 10, and that means it’s Mario Day — or in the preferred nomenclature of Twitter, #Mar10Day. It’s the de facto birthday of the Nintendo mascot, and we couldn’t be happier. So let’s take a look back at the character that reinvented gaming in his own image. (And, speaking of images, we’ve helpfully illustrated this history with some sexy Mario cosplay! Why? Because we love you!)

While most people know Mario first appeared in Shigeru Miyamoto’s classic game Donkey Kong, not everyone knows that Mario originally didn’t have a name. In the Japanese release, the little man jumping over the evil ape’s barrels was unnamed. But in the United States, he was named “Jumpman.”
