For those without comedic tastes, the so-called "experts" at MarioWiki have a real article on Shadow Mario.

Shadow Mario is Mario's shadow. He got tired of fighting, so in the Videogame War, he left during the Battle of Tokyo. This helped Mario win the war, as people got distracted by a shadow running away with a knapsack on a stick. He likes to draw pictures. He was a hobo until he went on SMK TV.

Even though Mario lost his shadow, sometimes it can be seen. It's either because the Mario is a replacement Mario and not the original, or it was badly drawn in.
