The Big Eight are a group of eight major characters in the Mario series that are usually in games together, and are the most popular characters in the series. The eight characters have appeared in many games together, such as the Mario Kart and Party games. The first time all eight of them appeared in a game together was Mario Kart 64. Even though they have never all appeared in a main platformer, a big amount of them usually appear in one, and usually all of them appear in a spin-off.
