Dian Shi Ma Li is an unlicensed NES game well-known on the internet for its star, Fortran, and his ideal picture of making money: "PUSH START TO RICH".

A "Fortran" logo - which may refer to the game's developers, but has been popularly taken as the name for the game's Mario wannabe with an "F" on his cap instead of an "M" - is present among the game's graphics.
