Túlio Humberto Pereira Costa (born June 2, 1969), sometimes simply referred to as Túlio or Túlio Maravilha for his great creativity on the field, is a veteran Brazilian international football (soccer) forward. He was born in Goiânia, Goiás.

Túlio Costa, 1.78 meters tall,[1] played for club teams such as Goiás, Sion (Switzerland), Botafogo, Corinthians, Vitória, Fluminense, Cruzeiro, Vila Nova, São Caetano, Santa Cruz, Újpest FC (Hungary), Wilstermann (Bolivia), Anapolina, Volta Redonda, Juventude, Tupy-ES, Fast, Itauçuense, Canedense,[1] and Itumbiara.[2] Playing for Botafogo, he won the Brazilian championship (Campeonato Brasileiro Série A) in 1995, a cup known as Taça Cidade Maravilhosa in 1996, and Torneio Rio-São Paulo in 1998 having Bebeto as a partner in the attack. He scored more than 800 career goals.

Tulio had the best moments of his career in Botafogo where he was twice the Brazilian top scorer and the Brazilian champion in 1995. His image will be forever associated with Botafogo where he plans to return to score goal number 1000 and become one of the three players in history to score a thousand goals or more. Túlio was also famous for scoring the controversial equalizer against Argentina in the quarter-finals of the 1995 Copa América in Uruguay. With about ten minutes remaining in regulation time, Túlio brought down a cross with his arm, while in an off-side position, before shooting the goal into the Argentine net to draw the match at 2-2. Brazil advanced to the next round at the expense of Argentina as a result of winning a penalty kick shootout.

In a match against Trindade, Túlio scored the 700th goal of his career while playing with Canedense.[3]
In a match against Maringá, Túlio scored the 899th goal of his career while playing with Botafogo.[4]
