The Super Retro Trio is a clone console manufactured by Retro-bit, which first appeared on the market in 2014. Taking advantage of expired patents, it combines an NES, an Super NES, and a Sega Mega Drive console into a single unit. It is based on the TCT-6801 console-on-a-chip. It has composite video output as well as s-video output. It also has native compatibility with the Super Retro Advance adapter. It followed the Retro Duo (a NES/SNES clone). It retailed for $69.99 in North America, and was available in black/red, silver/black and white/blue variations.

The first version of the console came with a pair of SNES-style controllers with Mega Drive connectors, and the console uses the Mega Drive controller ports as the universal controller for all 3 systems. This initial version of the console has the best audio and compatibility out of all revisions of the console. Retro-bit would later release a revision 2 of the console that came with SNES-style controllers with SNES connectors, and the console uses the SNES controller ports as the universal controller for all 3 systems. This revised version of the console reportedly has poor audio quality.

In 2018, Retro-bit released a successor called the Super Retro Trio Plus.
