Mecha Mario is a robotic double of Mario built by Bowser's "secret assistant." He has so far appeared only once, briefly in the beginning of Episode 7. Mecha Mario's exact role in the series is currently unknown. He might be the secret weapon Bowser said he had aboard the Omega Doomship in Episode 8. Mecha Mario may appear in later episodes of the Omega Doomship Arc, Episode 9 or Episode 10.
At some point prior to Episode 7, Bowser met a mysterious scientist (though his identity hasn't been officially confirmed, it is obviously Dr. Eggman), who informs Bowser of the Chaos Emeralds. Bowser commissions two secret weapons from the doctor: the Omega Doomship and Mecha Mario. When Bowser learns that Mario is searching for the Chaos Emeralds , he decides to invade the Mushroom Kingdom and kidnap Princess Peach while Mario and his friends are away, in order to hold her as ransom for the emeralds. Bowser then goes to check on the progress of his new weapons: although the Omega Doomship's defense system hasn't yet been installed (Bowser insists on having it launched anyway), Mecha Mario appears to be fully functional and ready. Mecha Mario looks powerful enough to take on Mario.
