Back in Brooklyn, the Mario Bros. grow up to become carpenters. Shy Luigi pretty much keeps to himself while Mario gets himself a girlfriend, the pretty Pauline. One day, while at a construction site, Mario sees a giant ape called Donkey Kong, who has escaped from the jungle and into New York. The big ape takes Pauline and climbs to the top of the unfinished skyscraper, a la King Kong. Dodging old DK's barrels and fireballs, Mario makes it up onto the skyscraper and is able to rescue Pauline. He is asked to escort DK back to the jungle, but when he finally does, Donkey Kong Junior, DK's son, comes after him in an act of revenge and kicks Mario out of the jungle and back to Brooklyn, while DK and DK Jr. stay in the jungle.
When Mario returns to Brooklyn, he and Luigi decide that plumbing sounds more fun to do, and pays more, so they switch their job from being carpenters to being plumbers. Hardly any time passes when another strange thing happens-- their shop's pipes have creatures crawling through then and screwing them up! Mario and Luigi eventually rid of them all, but when they are finished, they hear something coming from inside a rather large green pipe.
Before they know it, they are sucked inside to Mushroomland, their former home, unknown to them. The particular part they end up in is the Mushroom Kingdom, where there is trouble. The amazed, shocked, surprised, shaken Bros. are told by the Mushroom King, a.k.a. the Chancellor, that his daughter Princess Peach Toadstool had been kidnapped by King Bowser Koopa, their old enemy, and that his kingdom had been taken over by Bowser's troops. When the king asks for help, the Bros. unwillingly agree, but figure "why not," and they begin their mission.
They discover that they can use the pipes to "warp" from one place to another, and can even get special powers. The now-Super Mario Bros. can double their size using Super Mushrooms, shoot fireballs by touching a magical fire flower, become invincible for a short period of time using a starman, and have an extra chance at finding the princess using a 1-up mushroom. They use the powers against Koopa's troops, which include Koopa Troopas, Bullet Bills, Goombas, Cheep-Cheeps, Hammer Brothers, and Buzzy Beetles. The Super Mario Bros. rescue Toad, Peach's head mushroom retainer, from a Bowser-disguised Koopa troop, and finally defeat the actual Bowser and rescue the princess, restoring peace to the kingdom.
