Top Ten Best Mario Characters

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Blumiere a.k.a Count Bleck

Unlike countless other villains in the Mario franchise, Count Bleck/Blumiere has a lot of depth. Instead of acting entirely on a lust for power or revenge, the Count is a tragic villain who was broken by his thwarted love. Although that doesn't make him any less of a villain, it does make him more interesting than your typical doomsday baddie.

One of the most depressing villains in history, Bleck posed a great villain in Super Paper Mario. To avoid spoilers, I'll say this much: Bleck manages to be both a great villain and a deep character. Not something a lot of villains can say.

A great villain of a great game. Super Paper Mario is the best Paper Mario game ever and gets 10000+/10000 stars, same goes with Blumiere A.K.A. Count Bleck!

Count Bleck deserves the top 1 spot. I can't understand anyone who hates this villainous clown. Also, he's from Super Paper Mario, my favorite video game of all time besides Pac-Man World for the PlayStation One.

22Hammer Bros

His hammers are awesome and he, with Lakitu, are minions of Bowser.

When you can't play as him meh... When you CAN play as him I so rock I kick your butts with my eyes closed

Broken in super sluggers bring him to Mario kart

23Funky Kong

Really, I think funky kong is going to be my favorite forever!

Funky is a cool surfer dude. Without him, the rest of the Kongs would be toast. Even with Donkey Kong. Nintendo should put him in more games. He is awesome.

It's a shame that Pink Glod Peach kicked Funky Kong out of Mario Kart 8. Princess Peach & her true clones are evil anyways.

He is a rip off of do

24Baby Luigi

I can't believe he is this low. Baby Luigi is the bomb

Baby luigi is the best how is he down here he's number 1

The baby luigi is my 3 favorite Mario character he has best location

Who put the crappy babies on the list? I don't care if he's cute and I don't care if he is Luigi, he sucks! People need to stop complaining about Baby Peach because she is Peach. All of the babies are terrible. - DCfnaf

25Diddy Kong

Diddy Kong sucks, I hope they throw him out the Mario games

He deserved to get replaced by Pink Gold Peach in Mario Kart 8, huh? - IHaveSynthEyeZ9000

He needs to encounter many tall female crossover characters.

Also, he could have a slightly younger Spanish twin sister named Middy Kong. Middy is a portmanteau of the Spanish word for bad called "malo" & the British slang word for small called "Diddy".

Diddy Kong rocks! Whoever said that he sucks is a fat idiot because many people want him to return to Mario Kart 9.

How could someone hate this cute little monkey? Diddy is AMAZING!

Dimentio is such a great villain! He was manipulative and he thought out his plan pretty good. He has very clever dialogue and all of his battle songs are epic.

Super Paper Mario gets a 9.5 score. He is a thousand times better than Shadow Queen.

Dimentio is the coolest mario character ever. He is really fast, really cool, and is funny.

Dimentio is just awesome. He is quite mysterious and makes plans ahead of everyone else. His personality is incredibly fun and cool.

Funny lines, interesting character...I like him a lot!

27Iggy Koopa

The annoying piece of garbage with the glasses? Kill him and the other six.

Iggy sucks, especially in Paper Jam.

Terrible boss, terrible character.

Putrid piece of garbage...

28Ludwig von KoopaLudwig Von Koopa is a villain in the Super Mario Franchise. He is the self-proclaimed leader of the Koopalings and has a pompous and arrogant personality. He is said to have all the powers of the other six Koopalings. He can clone himself, cause earthquakes, teleport, and shoot lightning bolts from more.

Ludwig thought he was special. Paper Jam showed he's not the leader of anything, except terrible boss battles.

Worst video game boss character in history. Five different games of projectile flinging and shell spinning. Little, annoying piece of crap.

Actually I lied. You were talking about Ludwig. Oh and he just appears in Paper Jam. - DCfnaf

Ludwig is awful. He did that projectile fling and shell spin garbage in 5 different games (included SMW). A video game boss who does the same thing 5 times and is defeated the same way 5 times? Worst boss in history.

All of them are terrible. Larry is probably the second worst since he did in 4 but sucked in every one! - DCfnaf

I used to like Ludwig, but now I'm not a fan. He's got a good personality, but he's so bad. He's overused and he did that projectile fling and shell spin garbage in 5 games. - DCfnaf

Geno is no doubt one of the coolest Mario characters there is! He's a badass, he's kind, heroic, cute, brave and really smart. One of the best things about Super Mario RPG. He's one my most favourite Mario characters, and I think he and Mallow should return as recurring Mario characters. If they do, I would be so happy! They would definitely make the Mario series even more interesting! I wish Square Enix would give up the characters to Nintendo, because they don't use them anyway. They NEED a chance!

Still making my wishes for Star Road. - smrpg1996

Geno was one of the best things about Mario RPG. He needs to be in another game, SOON.

He's my favourite Mario character as of now! Why didn't he grant that wish I made for him to return in a future Mario game yet? I love Geno!

Can I ask why he is so popular? Everyone is just saying "Gene is awesome, he is the best! " Without explaining why he's great. - DCfnaf

30Light Blue Yoshi

Was I really the only one to think of different colored Yoshi. I mean really, Yoshi is awesome and cute. If he won't make you happy, then I don't know what will.

Such an awesome creature! I love his power in Super Mario Galaxy.
Light Blue Yoshi and Yellow Yoshi are the best. (Besides Green Yoshi)

Black Yoshi is better. Black Yoshi is GANGSTA (I loved him since I started watching SuperMarioLogan)

Pauline is a character who makes more sense then Peach.

Pauline - I'm a girl who lives in Brooklyn who used to date a plumber and a wild monkey on the loose snatches me up a few ladders, and a plumber with a hammer has to save me.

Peach - I'm a mushroom princess where mushrooms are the theme around here. A senseless monster named Bowser throws me in a ship with monster kids. Two plumbers and sometimes mushroom kids save me.

Pauline isn't bad she's normal. Peach isn't bad either. But Pauline doesn't steal Mario. He chooses to visit her. Look how much toads came to see them! Even peach helped save pauline on mario vs donkey kong. Peach and Pauline should be friends. The feud is fanmade and stupid. People should stop hating pauline over it (and it is Mario's fault peach is kidnapped. He doesn't defend her in time.)

Princess Peach steals Mario from Pauline because she is Nintendo's Veronica Lodge.

She actually was around longer than Peach, and had history and a purpose. She's also interesting, and has a different style like Rosalina. I'd like to see her in more games, maybe as Rosalina's sidekick. That would be cool, maybe they could be cousins or something

Pauline is the most underrated Mario character.

An adorable minion of Bowser's is a mushroom. His name is Goomba. I love Goomba.

Wears same clothes everyday. Lazy

Goomba is my number 6 Mario character. No lie. - ShyGuySwag

He has awesome fangs that should really be used in a Mario game.

And you know what I'm sick of? Morons blaming peach for everything like she destroyed all of the Mario franchise. Peach haters, please just get over it.

She's cute and shy. She kinda reminds me of myself sometimes.

How can Vivian be lower than Peach? I am sick of those Peach fanboys that go, "Oh, Peach is hot and Peach is pink, which is my favorite color." In this case, NO! Peach sucks and made Mario Party 9 even worse.

34Professor E. Gadd

Jeez how wasn't he already on here... Professor E. Gadd might not be the best but he's still a classic :) this little ghost scientist is smart and a little crazy but he is nice :) he's in Luigi's mansion of cource

E gadd takes fawfuls and luigis personality and puts the best traits from the both of them

35Lemmy Koopa

He's my favorite Mario character of all time, my main in Mario kart 8 and he's adorable, he has awesome hair, and he just like me.

I like using him in Mario Kart 8 because he is quite funny, fast and cute because of his small size

Lemmy has better acceleration than Toad, so if you get hit by a pesky boomerang flower or blue shell, you'll recover in no time!

He's my main in smash main in mario kart and he could kick Ludwig and gig you up to hell

36Koopa Paratroopa

Same as Koopa Troopa but with wings

37Black Yoshi

I think that people hate Birdo just because she's not a yoshi. So what? I agree with Birdo, and Bowser Jr. Being alike. Both suffer because they are not like the other koopalings or yoshis. Birdo just got the front of her nose cut open for a battle between Bowser and the wreckitralph people. That doesn't stop me from liking Birdo!

#13? What? 13 is a superstition. Not Birdo. Birdo deserves #9 or #2. Birdo does everything for her babies, Mario, and Bowser.

I think it has a unique personality under all the other characters. I don't know its gender but what the heck! - P0o0o

Nice gal (or guy)

39Petey Piranha

Petey has to be the most underrated Mario character EVER! He is one of my favorite villains and he should receive a lot more praise than he gets. PLEASE VOTE AND BRING HIM INTO THE TOP TEN! He deserves to be way higher on the chart.

I liked him ever since I first saw him in Super Mario Sunshine and have enjoyed playing as him certain games. Too bad he hasn't been a playable character in a long time, but maybe he will be a DLC in Mario Kart 8.

Petey Piranha is my Mario Kart: Double Dash playable character aside from King Boo and Baby Mario.

Petey is ugly - ziadabdo3011
