Origin

Dian Shi Ma Li

Fortran is a character from the Taiwanese NES bootleg gambling game Dian Shi Ma Li. He is a pirated version of Mario. His sprite was later used and recolored to create Grand Dad.

Fortran hits a block when you win points in this game. The game is infamous for the phrase "Push Start to Rich" that appears at a certain point in the game which involves pressing the Start button to make Fortran hit a block and gain points. This, along with Fortran's sprite, became a minor internet meme.

In M.U.G.E.N, Fortran has been made by arcadboy.

This character is a spriteswap of hsiehtm's NES Super Mario. As a result, he does not play like an average M.U.G.E.N character at all, and his only means of attacking is by jumping on the opponent. He also has a grand total of six sprites and no Special and Hypers.
