Mario's Flat Butt refers to a viral debate spawned by a movie poster for the untitled 2023 Super Mario Bros. Film showing Mario standing with his back turned towards the camera, his buttocks noticeably smaller than in Super Mario Odyssey and many other Super Mario video games. The size of Mario's buttocks getting toned down became a subject of discussions and memes on social media in early October 2022 leading up to the movie's first trailer release.


On October 4th, 2022, at 10 a.m. EST, the official Twitter[1] account of Nintendo of America tweeted the first poster for the untitled 2023 Super Mario film. The poster, which shows Mario's back, gained over 21,000 retweets and 108,600 likes in one day (shown below).
