Summary[edit | edit source]
Unlike the usual tracks ripped on SiIvaGunner, this isn't a song at all. It's simply the voice of Charles Martinet, who was cast as Mario for the first time in a mainline Mario game, saying what would become Mario's iconic catchphrase. It's played right when you start up the game to accompany Mario's giant 3D modeled head on the title screen.
Despite not being a song, it was included on the official album Super Mario 64 Original Soundtrack, and so the real GilvaSunner uploaded it to his channel along with the rest of the album, albeit with a somewhat silly description, changing "Music" to "Text", and "Composer" to "Voice".
This voice clip was later used in a popular Nintendo DS title, being New Super Mario Bros., when re-opening the console from sleep mode.
Rips[edit | edit source]

The first rip of this voice clip was "It's a me, Mario!" - Super Mario 64 on the original GiIvaSunner channel, a simple joke rip swapping out Mario's name for Joel's reaction to 7 GRAND DAD. It was a well-liked and iconic rip, but wasn't reuploaded until after the Reboot. In 2017, it was renamed to have the version "Original Mix" so another rip could take its place as the versionless rip.
Rips of "It's a me, Mario!" after the original all have roughly the same joke: Mario says the word "it's", and then it's followed by a different phrase that starts with the word "it's". The only exceptions are "It's a me, Mario!" (JP), "It's a me, Mario!" (Uncut Version), and the aforementioned new versionless rip. Most rips of this voice clip were made in Season 1 of the channel, and it was last ripped in Season 3.
