Top Ten Worst Mario Bros. Characters

The Top TenXW


I don't like that gender confused dinosaur. It freaks me out *barfs*!

Just... No. It shoots eggs out of that tube thing that's supposed to be a mouth. Because of that, it can only make weird noises, not talk. I call it an it because I have no clue what gender it is.

Well, Birdo is awesome! Peach sucks, which is why I hate this list, because Princess Peach is not top 1 but Birdo instead.

apparently she is a shemale. she looks feminine but nintendo said that in some game dialogue it's HE and in others its SHE - munkee_linc97

Peach is the one who sucks, not Rosalina. I hate the stupid rabid Peach fans who hate Rosalina and Daisy because they think they are Peach knockoffs, these people who think like that are idiots. What the hell is Peach even good for? She never does anything, and gets kidnapped in almost every Mario game. Yet people adore Peach like she is a god, its people like them who make me hate her, you don't see this many rabid Daisy and Rosalina fans, hell, you don't see as many crazy Princess Zelda fans. Worst. Princess. Ever. I don't care how happy/bubbly she is, she still turns me off, as do most of her fans. Go ahead and flame me crazy Peach fans, prove to me that you think like that.

Peach sucks and is incapable of defending herself. Almost as if she wants to get kidnapped. Remember in Super Mario Galaxy when she just watched Bowser attack her kingdom and didn't do anything about it? Yeah, REAL responsible, Peach.

And that stupid voice too. How many times have I heard that recycled line "Mario! " since Galaxy? They should bring back Leslie Swan as Peach. She sounded better and did not sound like a ditzy brat that Peach is today. - smrpg1996

Peach is the one who is insane, not Pauline. People hate Pauline because of Peach. Um...pauline is the normal one. She's ok until Peach came. Then pauline went crazy and grew boobs, changed her dress and like...became a whore. People say Pauline steals Mario, but its Mario who chooses to visit her once in a's not her fault. I'm not a Pauline fan...but people hate a legit character because of a stereotype. People like peach because of "she's a girl" or "she is cute" or "it's not her fault she gets kidnapped" heck yes it's her fault! If I was a toad, and some large monster tried to kill me, I'd run off too! And I wouldn't help Peach rule MK either. (MK is mushroom kingdom) rosalina is awesome, I read her comments on this list...they aren't even about her!

Pauline is much better than Princess Peach, whom Leslie Swan is the best voice actress for in history.

Peach is in lots of games but you can't really play as her. Her dress is so long and she trips. She has Perry the umbrella to help her. What if Hammer Brother throws a hammer and takes Perry to sabotage. WEAKLING PEACH? What if Daisy or any other female takes the lead of Peach? Pauline is who should - Nintnedo lies about a fake Pauline. (Pauline was the one on Donkey Kong until this craphead joins her spot. She needs Mario and Luigi's help. She can't fight by herself? Do you know how much girls in Mario should of had her place?

So true! Princess Peach was very unreasonable. She even killed her brother, who was a good man.

I don't usually be a hater, but I honestly never liked her. I know she's not guilty of being an eternal useless damsel in distress because she was created for this role, but even so, she's a boring and generic princess, her concept is girly in excess, she's like a barbie doll in the games. Pink is my least favorite color too. - Palmeiras

He has a upside down l on his hat all because wario turned the m around to make a w didn't mean retarded waluigi had to what a turd - FreddyGodzilla

Waluigi always pissed me off.
I don't why but when I was 12 playing Mario party 6, I just saw him and I knew he was going a retard.

Mario Party 6: one of the worst Nintendo games ever. Why? An example: Waluigi. But Princess Peach deserves the top 1 spot. Why is SHE in games when she has no reason whatsoever?!

Waluigi takes advantage of the whole Mario couples thing. First of all, Waluigi would bet a secret for killing Luigi, and his "date" Rosalina helps you. Also Pauline is the anti-Daisy. Why don't Waluigi and Pauline date? , anyways where did he come from? He wastes your space and you believe he's a vampire. Why did he have to come, and why is Birdo on the list as #1, she's the best female character!

Well, wait until Rosalina exists! Rosalina is the best overall gaming character with Peach being the worst.

He's a fine character in the Mario series and he's better than Wario. - Metts

No he isn't, Wario is developed and complicated, Waluigi is bland. - DCfnaf

4WarioWario is a character in Nintendo's Mario series who was originally designed as an antagonist to Mario. His motives are driven by greed and he will take the side of whoever will give him the most pay. Although he may seem like just a mean man with no heart, he does have a very tragic past.

Wario is gross and rude but you got to love him I don't know why but he's rudeness and grossness is mostly what makes wario funny I love wario he is a super awesome amazing unattractive weird little fatty but still he's awesome

He's a fat, disgusting, slob with poor hygiene who is a self-centered hater - Celestius

Sometimes he's the bad guy, sometimes he just tries to get back his gold, other times he saves alternate universies? So is he a villain or a hero? Who can say?

He's so fat, ugly, slow, and he can't jump high. - Metts

5Pink Gold Peach

Nintendo could've chosen ANY Mario character for Mario Kart 8, but instead just settled on a stupid clone of a stupid character. Pink Gold Peach is just a rip of Metal Mario, was in Mario Kart 8 for no particular reason and, as mentioned, they could have chosen ANY Mario character from a previous game instead of a clone! It's not like Nintendo was running out of ideas or anything! They had plenty ideas for Mario Kart characters! But just gave us THIS. - smrpg1996

Takes away classic characters like birdo to add this alternative form of a character that hasn't been referenced anywhere. - HELLADERE120

"I hate and I mean HATE all of you people! She deserves to be lower. New characters are cool so WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!? YOU PEOPLE ARE JUST RUINING MY LIFE SAYING ALL OF MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS ARE DUMB, STUPID, RUDE, ETC! SO STOP ALREADY! "

Do you know why you got only thumbs-down instead of thumbs-ups? That's because Pink Gold Peach ruined Mario Kart 8 and it's all her fault that Dixie Kong lost her chance of making her debut in the Kart spinoffs. Sorry, PGP fans, you can moan and groan all you want, but Dixie got robbed and it's all Pink Gold Peach's fault. Baby Rosalina and Pink Gold Peach replaced Honey Queen, which made, MADE me really mad. There are plenty of deserved characters like Dry Bones, Diddy Kong, Funky Kong, Dry Bowser, King Boo, King Bob-Omb, Nabbit, Kamek, Vivian, Honey Queen, Dixie Kong, or Tiny Kong than those fools which haven't been referenced anywhere in past Mario titles.

Correction. SOME new characters are cool. Definitely not this one - Berger

Should be number one, the other characters are at least original and fun, but this is just lazy and pathetic. Wario, Peach, Birdo, and even Waluigi should be lower. - DCfnaf

6Baby Mario


Princess Peach is the only bad one. I can not believe that critics reviewed Princess Peach positively (in general). I think 85% of people love Princess Peach & only 15% of people like Princess Peach.

Besides, Baby Mario should switch places with either Baby Peach or Baby Daisy.

Baby Mario is underrated & awesome. Princess Peach is overrated & should go away 'because she is a blond, pink dress wearing pissant.

If people like baby luigi than why don't they like baby Mario. He is not the worst character ever

Baby Mario is so annoying on yoshi island - anthonyj

So true. His screeches are so annoying it makes me just want to have the people take him. - Mewbosses

Ruined mario world 2, I'm not buying that game because of the 1 second loop whine sound

V21 Comments

I find Daisy annoying and overrated as she is only popular because she's a "tomboy." I also find her fans to be big hypocrites as they cry "non-canon" if you use spin offs as evidence for someone's strength but they use Mario Party 3 as evidence that Daisy is "stronger" than Bowser.

Why do people keep saying that Princess Daisy is underrated and Princess Peach is underrated?! Princess Peach is much more overrated than Princess Daisy!

I notice a lie shoved about Daisy. She's so girly even more than Princess Peach. She doesn't even get picked to play the sports games and everyone wants Daisy on more games. She's on 98% of the Mario games! The only ones she's missing on is the Mario Galaxies and Super Mario Bros. , also Super Smash Bros which rocks! Deanna Mustard must of been paid a fortune to voice Daisy. I like Birdo better than Daisy and everyone hates Birdo!

"Being a tomboy is not BAD! It is awesome! "

Except she's not a tomboy, just some poser

I don't hate her anymore since I think she is underused. I still hate her fans though and I find her overrated. Don't give me that "Peach is overrated" crap because nobody like her. Daisy Fans accuse Rosalina of taking her spot when she doesn't do anything. - DCfnaf

8Baby Peach

Baby Peach is taking out chances for radical veterans in Mario Kart 8. I want Dry Bones, Diddy Kong, Honey Queen, Birdo, Kamek, Candy Kong, Bowser Jr. , King Boo, Dixie Kong, or Cranky Kong in that game instead of her. I would rather play as any of these characters instead of this stupid clone of Peach.

Far uglier then anybody. When she screams I would kill her. I would kill her for living, being selfish, fooling Mario and being happy, because I read up that If she wins a race, she shakes her head in both directions as you know. This releases poo out of her dummy to kill everyone. She steals their money and buys a disguise so that Mario will want to save her when she is kidnapped. Next time, I'll let bowser hang, draw and quarter her, an when he does, ill party all night. Until then, I can't breathe

Baby Peach comes in retarded in Mario games. She is from Daisy who is easily not a main character. The only game she is in is Mario Kart and she is nonsense on the game. Nintendo, please take her off and replace her with Honey Queen, Dixie Kong, lemme, lakitu, shy guy, kamek, or larry if it is possible.

Replace a new character for peach versions plus peach

9Baby DaisyBaby Daisy is a minor character in the Super Mario Bros franchise. She is an infant version of Princess Daisy. She first appeared as a unlockable character in Mario Kart Wii, she later appeared as a unlockable character in Super Mario Sluggers, and finally is a default character in Mario kart 8.

Why is that stupid Baby Daisy trying to get fame? First she ruins my favorite Mario Kart game, Mario Kart Wii, then Mario Super Sluggers and Mario Kart 8? How many Mario games is the no good, pointless and stupid character can get away with everything? Always trying to win, and making annoying noises that makes you mad every time she passes someone. I agree Nintendo should eliminate that pointless Baby Daisy. I hate her and she's just garbage!

I don't think one character (well two) can ruin a game. Mario Kart Wii had the best roster - DCfnaf

She is a wart on one of my favorite Kart Racing games. Why was she invented? Why does she continue to exist? How can Nintendo get away with such a character and Sonic gets scorn whenever anyone besides him or Eggman appears? Why?!

Why does she exist? In Mario Kart Wii, she could easily been replaced by Baby Wario or Baby Donkey Kong, at least they already had been invented in an actual Yoshi game. Or even better, swap her with a non-baby character like shy guy. She is a waste of space.

She could've been replaced with a known character called Shy Guy!

Very pointless character - jbella9000

V33 Comments

Should definitely be higher up. In MP9 story mode in the later boards you only play against him and you HAVE to win. If you lose you have to restart the board. Once I was just about to win a board and Kamek just HAD to battle me for half my stars. I lost. He laughed. I wanted to punch him.

When I was playing Mario Party 9, I was leading until I landed on a Bowser Space. Kamek just had to battle for half of my Mini Stars. I lost. He deserved the magic. I want to slaughter him. Curse you, Kamek! He should deserve the top spot instead of Birdo.

Of the 2 bad guys in Mario party 9 Kamek is worse than shy guy because shy guy is cute. Kamek is ugly and annoying. His voice is so irritating

What about Shy Guy.

The Contenders


The reason I think Rosalina is one of the worse Mario characters is because of the way they changed her personality and obliterated everything they tried to build up in the first Mario Galaxy. Rosalina is a a character who cares deeply for the Lumas and loves them with all her heart, however do you honestly think it makes sense for her to be running around in a cat suit or participating in races? Rosalina, before, was a quiet and reserved person who was probably a tad awkward around people. Nintendo began shoe-horning her into games because of her sudden rise of popularity. In doing so, they took away what made Rosalina a good character. She suddenly smiles and squeals and sounds generally... expressive, there is nothing wrong with being expressive but it's just not Rosalina it contradicts the reticent character they built her up to be. Rosalina has been without human contact for at least a couple centuries, she won't suddenly be able to assimilate so quickly back to human ...more

I don't see why people viewed her as she or socially awkward in SMG. Did she really seem that way when bringing Mario on her ship and giving info and stuff when needed? Cause really I don't see it how it would be that to me be whatever...

I think she should've just stayed in the Mario Galaxy series. She is really just a boring character. People just like her because she's "smart", "wise", "sexy", and she is actually none of those things! I hate Rosalina's fanbase far more than I hate Daisy's, they're all rabid and act like she's a "god". Rosalina looks a lot more like a Peach clone than Daisy does, they have the same face shape, similar voice, blonde hair, almost identical eyes, and very similar personalities! Rosalina's "woo hoos" are the most fake sounding thing said in Mario history, I swear. I probably wouldn't mind Rosalina as much if she wasn't so overrated. Why is she in Smash if she's kind and loving?

I don't know, why is Mario and Luigi in Smash? Why are all these nice and happy protagonists in smash? Because Rosalina is also a HERO. - DCfnaf

Gosh I hate Rosalina. Back then I adored her (But Daisy was my favorite) and now I think Nintendo is just too... Ugh. I can't even explain. She has received so much game and she hasn't even been around for a decade yet. She made it to the Mario Kart games pretty quickly, and she already has a baby version. Like what MAN?! Daisy hadn't gotten her baby version until years later. And she's now in SSB when daisy has been in line for THREE times now! And Peach! I used to never liked her but with Rosalina in the way, I was hating the wrong person the whole time. Peach is pretty nice and has been with Daisy the whole time. The whole Peach/Daisy friendship is fading and people are all like Peach and Rosalina this and Peach and Rosalina that.

She should be most hated and not Birdo

V179 Comments

She is one of my favorite characters. She is just a normal citizen, not a princess. I admire that. But alas, I think she should be in more games.

She is Nintendo's Princess Sally Acorn. But that's fine. Pauline 7&

"Why do you want pauline to make her debut in Mario kart 9? Pauline is a fake princess. She has no horn emblem and no bike suit unlike the other princesses."

Not every human female has to be a princess there can be just regular people too so shut up about her being a 'fake' princess. Seriously does she even try to act it no. The only poser is Daisy as she goes around with the tomboy label so if you want to b17(h about someone being fake Daisy is your girl.

13BowserBowser or King Koopa is a video game character and the primary antagonist of Nintendo's Mario franchise.

I hate Bowser due to how he keeps enlisting those damn koopalings. Someone really needs to kill those seven garbage tier tortoises so we can have a variety of bosses in the Mario adventure games again. Kill the krapalings!

He is a villan. So he must be the worst. But he ROX at being a villan!

Bowser did help Mario, Luigi, and Peach in Super Paper Mario, where he built a fort with Hammer Bro. defenses who should be in the worst characters list. Everyone hates them. But, how is he so strong in the Super Mario Galaxy and it's sequel.

Bowser is awesome! If you want to find terrible characters, I recommend finding those seven uninspired filler bosses. - DCfnaf

14Wendy O. KoopaWendy O. Koopa is a villainess in the Super Mario Bros. franchise. She is a member of the Koopalings, and the only female member of the group. Her trademark attack is her ability to summon glowing rings that float around.

She's a spoiled fat brat who poops in her diapers all day screaming "Daddy, I want this, I want that" into Bowser's face (P.S. bOWSER IS EPIC)

In super Mario brothers 3 the cartoon she would whine all the time! You would wanna tell her to shut up and go to bed now

And this is a reason why I strongly hate The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3!

I remember being little and watching the Mario show and was so happy until she came on. I hated her and still do. Her boss fights are always too easy or too hard Nintendo find a balance

Annoyed by her.

15Bowser Jr.Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. As his name implies, he is the son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

No way! Bowser Jr. is awesome! In Super Mario Galaxy 2 he has an enormous robot monster that shoots Bullet Bills, Banzai Bills and shockwaves. And it has hammers for hands. Not to mention the other awesome beasts he controls in that game. This is a TERRIBLE list.

Okay. This one is far more understandable than the rest, but still. It's not UNIQUE in any aspect. It's just a pathetic Koopa turd with a paintbrush! Come on, people. If you HAVE to have another Koopa in the Mario Kart series, why not Kamek INSTEAD of (not in addition to) Bowser Jr? He at least has somewhat of a personality.

Bowser Jr can build machines to kill Mario! Bowser and Kamek never did! - DCfnaf

He replaced the Koopalings although the Koopalings are much better, more creative, more colorful, more imaginative and more unique

Bowser Jr is more unique than seven turds who projectile fling and shell spin. - DCfnaf

Why does he get so much hate? I'm just glad he's not "Projectile fling and shell spin Koopa #8" people should stop complaining that he replaced the Koopalings. Those seven uninspired filler can go to hell. - DCfnaf

16MarioMario is a fictional character in the Mario video game franchise, created by Nintendo's Japanese video game designer, Shigeru Miyamoto. He serves as the eponymous protagonist of the series and is the mascot of Nintendo. The Mario franchise is the best-selling video game franchise of all time.

Mario is a really bland character. What are his motivations? What's he like? We just don't know. And in games like Mario Bros. 2 and 3D World where other characters are playable, his lack of special abilities makes him inferior to them. Simply put, Mario is not fit to be the main character. In any other role I would not care, but as a main character he just serves to highlight how much better everyone else would be in his role.

The way I see it, Mario is meant to represent the player. His actions are those chosen by the player. His personality is bland unless altered by the player.
So, I guess Mario is... a Zombie?

The name of the show is Mario the games are named Mario, so in Mario's defense he is the best. Also he gets a princess and a cool brother. And say you like action while watching or playing Mario he has a lot of enemies like Bowser.

"Mario is definitely not a hero, because in super Mario 64 wiggler says that Mario flooded his house and Mario has to stomp on the cater pillar to kill it. Also later in the game Mario has to drop a baby penguin from a cliff. In super Mario sticker star Mario has to force a shy guy and chase hi until the shy guy gets eaten by a piranha plant while Mario smiles happily. Curse this red monster that kills poor mushrooms and turtles! "

Uh how was Mario supposed to know how Wigglers live in paintings? Besides, Wigglers are moronic hot-heads that flip out over EVERYTHING as shown in BIS so really the majority of the fault for the Wigglers suffering is on the WIGGLER itself.

And the penguin being dropped off the cliff that was the player being an ass not Mario.

He never had to kill the baby penguin. The player does that. Also, Wiggler has a power star. Therefore works for Bowser, therefore he brought it upon himself, Mario flooding his house was lucky, and anyway, how did Wiggler know he did that - Berger

Okay now I am going to strike.

17Baby Princess Rosalina

She would've been replaced by dry bones for the Mario kart 8 roster. Or even ROB for metal Mario.

Why does this abomination even exist! Why not use existing characters like Baby Wario or Baby DK?

She is terrible, ok. She's a bland annoying clone who wasted a position in MK8. I like Rosalina, but not her baby counterpart. There's even proof that she's just a recolor of Baby Peach. In Rosalina's book, Rosalina as a child was a ginger who wore a white tunic. She has nothing but a telescope how could she have Jewelry, a crown, and a customized dress? Nintendo could've put ANYONE from the series even Honey Queen had a legitimate debut, but not another clone! Even Paulina from donkey kong games would be more legitimate as a racer than a recolor of Baby Peach. Though Rosalina is very original, I have to say. She's nothing like her betch of a baby!

Worst of the worst other than Peach.

They somehow replaced Yellow Toad with an even worse host in Mario Party 8. There were literally BILLIONS of better options. I'd rather Dixie Kong as a host. NOBODY LIKES MC BALLYHOO! But, thank goodness he was gone as a host in later Mario Party series.

Top 5: Koopa Kid (Mario Party 2/Mario Party 4).
