Fans have theorized about what a third Mario brother would look like for a long time now, drawing up various design interpretations over the years for what someone even farther out of the limelight than Luigi would look like. Well, the answer may have been found in a Finnish grocery store, where a number of sausage varieties bear the names of Mario, Luigi… and Pablo?



The photo was taken in July last year and recently signal boosted by Nintendo Life, leading us all to wonder who exactly this third Mario brother is. His name implies that he’s Hispanic rather than Italian, though whether or not he’s a Spaniard or from Latin America is up in the air. The orange lettering of his name (when Mario and Luigi’s match up with their iconic letters) imply he has similarly colored overalls. 

As for personality, we can only speculate. Is he a force of the shadows, like some sort of plumber-ninja? Or somebody who isn’t spoken of due to being on unsavory terms with his other brethren? Why have we been denied Pablo (and his presumed evil version Wablo) for so long? Where is he hiding, Nintendo??? And why does Finland know the answer??????
