The boss of the Sky Pirates, featured exclusively in the Game & Watch remakes of Balloon Fight (both New Wide Screen and Crystal Screen) is called "Oiram Repus", which is actually "Super Mario" spelled backwards. The character itself has no resamblance or reference to Mario.


Copyrights for both series are held by Mario.
