Actually, it was not. They sued to get a trademark on it AFTER someone else came up with it. It is an interesting read, but its been a while since I looked at it. If I recall right a rap singer used it in a song years before it became popular, and once it became popular Nintendo sued saying they should be given a trademark on that phrase, even though they had no prior claim to it.
