Best Answer

Mario first appeared in the arcade Mario Bros where he cleaned pipes from crabs, koopas, and other goons. This was also a mini-game in Super Mario Bros 3.

Although he is featured in Donkey Kong for NES, in the original Donkey Kong arcade cabinet the hero was named Jump Man. The change to Mario on the NES version was made to sell units based on recognition.

Super Mario Bros uses a very similar design and physics to the original Mario Bros so that may be why Nintendo stuck with pipe/plumber theme.
