Mario and Princess Peach Mural.

Mario, Princess Peach, Donkey Kong Murals

Field review by the editors.

Albuquerque, New Mexico

For many years, until 2016, this was a locally well-loved mural of Pac-Man. Then it was destroyed by a spray-painting moron.

The Techo Gecko consignment shop, which had sponsored the Pac-Man mural, tracked down the original artist, who painted it over with a new mural celebrating Mario and Princess Peach.

Their neighbor mural, Donkey Kong, was original and has been left unharmed.
