These are the seven Kings who governs and protect the seven realms of the Mushroom World. They first appear in Super Mario Bros. 3
All seven kings united will appear at some point in the Super Mario Bros. X
series, whilst only the King of Sea Side appeared most often. Each year, all seven kings have one annual meeting. The kings respect each other as individuals, as promising rulers and as powerful kings.
Years, in the Super Mario Bros. X
backstories, the Sea Side King and the Grass Land King had been in a few conflicts, battling each other. However, the Sea Side King was always defeated. Eventually, they made peace before the events of Super Mario Bros. 3
