Video game characters don't come much more iconic than Nintendo's Super Mario.

The rotund Italian plumber is one of the best-known characters of all time, with his blue dungarees, red cap and bushy moustache and eyebrows - but what if he had no hair and facial hair at all? Reckon you'd recognise him?

Luckily, someone on the internet is here to answer that question and the result is actually pretty disturbing.

Shaved Mario, you're way too bald for our liking. Step away from the razor.
