Of course, there's the *bleep*ty Mario's Time Machine/Mario is Missing, but no one remembers those.

Nah, that happens to people.

While Mario does have sound clips that are used in the story mode of London 2012 for the 3DS, he's one of only four characters who don't actually have speech bubbles of dialogue (The others being Luigi, Sonic and Metal Sonic (But I presume he doesn't speak much normally because he's a robot)). He's either telepathically understood by other characters, interpreted by Tails or Toad, or communicates via hand movements, nods, question marks and exclamation marks. They even use a really limited selection of sound clips. I think it's probably the quietest and least expressive I've ever seem Mario. Even the Goomba Kamek disguises as Mario is more expressive.
A very sad sight.

And Sonic fans also get to experience a taste of how Mario fans like me feel on a regular basis.

Sonic acts like a total brain-damaged numbskull in London 3DS. I had to laugh at him when he's trying to communicate and no words come out, but you know, joke's on me.

I think what makes Sonic even more awkward is that he's supposed to be a talkative character with a personality, unlike, sigh, Mario. Maybe not Classic Sonic, but for modern Sonic, the one I'm used to, yeah, he's clearly his own character with a personality, not intended to be a "character avatar who is a stand-in for the player".

Yeah.

The scene ends up being Tails the only one out of the playable three who can talk. It's ridiculous to witness.




This in contrast with other groups, where everyone has speech, as far as I know. I didn't bother playing enough to see if that's really true or my memory serving me bad, to be fair, because London 2012 is a bad gaem.

So only TWO of five characters talk. We all know why Toad's here because Mario and Luigi need someone to hand-hold them and the silent protagonist thing is a *bleep*ing terrible idea.

All other three would just be staring at Tails.

How Tails doesn't go utterly insane at constantly talking to himself, well, that's props to him. No amount of stand-ins isn't going to make characters here look any less awkward. It might've worked better in Half-Life or Portal, but even those aren't without their criticism. It worked in Doom because the character has his own agency without looking awkward as hell. Doesn't work here.

I don't know what's more awkward. Subspace Emissary or this. At least in Subspace Emissary, characters being unable to talk is a consistent trait, even if a lot of the characters featured in it do actually talk in their source games, unlike in the Mario & Sonic games where it's inconsistent on who talks and who doesn't.

Mario and Luigi is...a bit understandable...even when I don't agree with it...I can see where they came from, but Sonic being unable to articulate is extremely baffling to me. What, he's a main character too, and main characters just can't talk?

Yeah, everyone else gets speech, the other playable characters, the extra ones to add to the plot (Kamek, Lakitu, Espio, etc.), even the Dry Bones that just makes non-translated clacking sounds. Seriously, he gets a speech bubble just to go "Clackity-clack" but Mario and Luigi get a Toad. It's ridiculous.

Sega did (eventually) catch it apparently: Sonic speaks in Rio 2016.
But Mario & Luigi are still silent. :(

Sonic did recover from brain damage.

Luigi's is only partially broken, thankfully.

Mario's is beyond repair though.

I've forgotten about this, but in Mario Party 3, Mario did have a few choice words when he's not the chosen character in Story Mode. Here are some quotes from that game:

"I am more courageous than any - even you!"
"No one can match my courage!"
"But I'm always the hero!"

Thank you for reading.

I find it ironic that the so-called silent character has so many voiced lines, and he is probably heard talking more than any other character (meaning not a speech bubble).

The only Mario variant that could be considered silent is Paper Mario, and I don't know if Paper Mario talks in Super Paper Mario, but it's weird that Paper Mario speaks in Thousand Year Door. The other Mario variants are more talkative than that, even Super Mario Kun, so I presume when some people say Mario is silent, they think of Paper Mario.

Speaking of that, isn't it funny that the Mario characters only voices in English, compared to Sonic having more voice actors speaking different languages?

Thank you for reading.
Pretty sure it's like that since Sonic games have a bunch of cutscenes and dialogue.

I guess we left out instances where Mario talks in the game instruction booklet, but here we go.

"Uwagh, I can't see in this thing!" - Mario, Mario & Wario.

And there's the Super Mario 64 instruction booklet

Quote

"Mario, please come to the castle. I've baked a cake for you. Yours truly, Princess Toadstool."

"Wow, an invitation from Peach! I'll head out right away. I hope she can wait for me!"
Mario is so excited to receive the invitation from the Princess, who lives in the Mushroom Castle, that he quickly dresses in his best and leaves right away.

"Hmmm, something's not quite right here... It's so quiet..."
Shaking off his uneasy premonition, Mario steps into the silent castle, where he is greeted by the gruff words,

"No one's home! Now scram! Bwa, ha, ha."
The sound seems to come from everywhere.

"Who's there?! I've heard that voice somewhere before..."
Mario begins searching all over the castle. Most of the doors are locked, but finding one open, he peeks inside. Hanging on the wall is the largest painting he has ever seen, and from behind the painting comes the strangest sound that he has ever heard...

"I think I hear someone calling. What secrets does this painting hold?"
Without a second thought, Mario jumps at the painting. As he is drawn into it, another world opens before his very eyes.

And so begins the grandest of all adventures!

Once inside the painting, Mario finds himself in the midst of battling Bob-ombs. According to the Bob-omb Buddies, someone...or something...has suddenly attacked the castle and stolen the "Power Stars". These stars protect the castle; with the stars in his control, the beast plans to take over the Mushroom Castle.

To help him accomplish this, he plans to convert the residents of the painting world into monsters as well. If nothing is done, all those monsters will soon begin to overflow from inside the painting.

"A plan this maniacal, this cunning...this must be the work of Bowser!"
Princess Toadstool and Toad are missing, too. Bowser must have taken them and sealed them inside the painting. Unless Mario recovers the Power Stars immediately, the inhabitants of this world will become Bowser's army.

"Well, Bowser's not going to get away with it, not as long as I'm around!"
Stolen Power Stars are hidden throughout the painting world. Use your wisdom and strength to recover the Power Stars and restore peace to the Mushroom Castle.

"Mario! You are the only one we can count on."

And this one is from the Super Mario Land 2 instruction booklet, which is my favorite.

Quote
DANGER! DANGER!
While I was away crusading against the mystery alien Tatanga in Sarasa Land, an evil creep took over my castle and put the people of Mario Land under his control with a magic spell. The intruder goes by the name of Wario. He has been jealous of my popularity ever since we were boys, and has tried to steal my castle many times. It seems he has succeeded this time. Wario has scattered the 6 Golden Coins from my castle all over Mario Land. These Golden Coins are guarded by those under Wario's spell. Without these coins, we can't get into the castle to deal with Wario. We must collect the 6 coins, attack Wario in the castle, and save everybody!
IT'S TIME TO SET OUT ON OUR MISSION!!

Imagine Mario doing a dramatic reading of this in the same way Charles Martinet did with his narration of  Super Mario Bros.: Trapped in the Perilous Pit.

Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour also had this

"It's a me! I've been on fire lately, but I hope you'll challenge me!"

It's a big stretch, but (Mario) The Music Box had Mario talking to himself all the time.

Welll it's a fan game, but isn't there a scene where Mario says "I hate you" to Luigi or something.
