9. Mario and Princess Peach

Peach and Mario, in paper form

They’ve been together for longer than most modern marriages last, and the attraction between the two is evident, albeit hard to understand. The People’s Princess is highborn royalty, and seems to be a fair and just ruler, often holding ceremonies for her loyal subjects (Mario Party, Mario Kart, Mario Tennis etc.) — she could have anyone she wants, but chooses Mario. Mario is just a lowly, overweight working-class plumber, whose only friend is his brother. He must have some level of celebrity, though, because he and his brother have impostors in the form of Wario and Waluigi, so maybe Mario and Peach have that Prince of Monaco and Grace Kelly sort of thing going on.

He has saved her more times than most of us have had hot dinners, often abandoning his plumber duties to do so (come to think of it, I’ve never seen a toilet in the Mushroom Kingdom, maybe work is quiet for him anyway), and what else could show love, more than rescuing your betrothed from a giant lizard/turtle?
