Pipe Dream - Super Mario Font by TRIFORCE89 Pipe Dream - Super Mario Font by TRIFORCE89
This is a font I made last summer inspired by the lettering found in Super Mario logos.

Unlike similar fonts, I did not make up what the letters look like. Well...for the majority of them anyway. I looked at the box art for just about every Mario game - EVER. Even the obscure ones like the Virtual Boy version of Mario Tennis.

I have little experience at making fonts and it shouldn't be hard to tell given this font. A few letters are little wonky because I didn't clean up the edges. I just copied and pasted the letters off the box art images in a font creation program. And it worked! For a first attempt, I think I did well. Only a small handful are made up (mostly numbers, but the Mario Party games helped out with that. I think the letter "Q" too.) - everything else is a letter ripped straight from box art.

So, it may be a little rough around the edges but it is the most accurate Super Mario font around.

Can you add the lowercase letters (from Mario Party 9 and stuff) because they've shown up? Thank you!
Also, I LOVE THE FONT!

I haven't played Mario Party 9, but looking at the boxart I don't see any lowercase letters.

If you mean within the game and many other recent games, that's actually different typeface altogether. Nintendo's standardized/modernized version of the classic Mario type (which was most likely always done by hand). It looks a little different than the old SNES/N64 era lettering, but you can find recreations made by others here: [link] and [link]

For what it's worth, if I were to update this, it would probably just be taking the '9' from Mario Party 9 (if I remember correctly, that game didn't exist yet when I made this, so I improvised). But, for the most part, I've moved on from this font for these instead: [link] and [link]
