First appearance: Fighters of Lapis 5
Hyper-Realistic Mario is a secret character that appears in Fighters of Lapis 5. He is based off a real commercial that Nintendo made to promote DLC for Mario Kart 8, namely the Mercedes DLC. He is identical to the real Mario in a few ways, but differs thanks to his human height and more realistic abilities, making him similar to Lara Croft. He bleeds similar to her as well as being damaged by environmental conditions that the other Mario would shake off. Instead of riding a kart, he uses a Mercedes, which is also his stage entrance.
He can also use a hyper-realistic Goomba to get people to freeze and have him attack them. On the joke character scale, he is a 7.
