Dr. Mario is some guy that looks suspiciously much like Mario, but he isn't. He's Dr. Mario, a completely different character from Mario.
In Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Wedding Mario and Mario Maker Mario, unlike Dr. Mario, are in fact Mario. This is evidenced by the fact that they are alternative costumes for Mario. This emphasizes the fact that, unlike the costumes, Dr. Mario truly isn't Mario. Especially since Dr. Mario isn't even an echo fighter of Mario.
He was a ing awesome clone in Melee but was removed from Brawl. The only reason he was in Melee was because he had awesome music. Seriously, Sakurai used that as a reason.
He also said it was because a doctor would need to be on the scene. Oh, and also, he had more data on the Brawl disc than Pichu. An ascended alternate costume was planned to be in before Pichu. That should tell you something.
He has now been confirmed to be a returning veteran in SSB4. Before Mewtwo.
(But it's OK because Mewtwo is back now.)
Add yourself or others to this list if you main Dr. Mario.
