The Top Ten

1 Rosalina Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She first appeared in the popular Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 for the Nintendo Wii and later returned for the game's sequel in 2010 . Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games ...read more.

By far a fan favorite. Some even call her overrated, but Rosalina is really the only Mario princess who isn't a damsel in distress. Surely that makes her special, along with the fact that she is smart and courageous.

2 Mario Mario Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super ...read more.

Of course, the main character is incredibly popular. Mario is worshipped as a hero by all, including some fans.

3 Wario Wario Wario 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.

I... I don't know why... but for wah-tever (intentional pun) reason Wario is very popular among fans and is... er... put in some NSFW stuff... I just don't know anymore...

4 Luigi Luigi Luigi is a fictional character featured in video games and related media released by Nintendo. Created by prominent game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Luigi is portrayed as the slightly younger but taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Mario ...read more.

The little green man famous for his high jump is loved by all. He is particularly popular for being shunned be Mario in most all games except the Luigi's Mansion series.

5 Pauline Pauline Pauline, also known as Daniella Verducci, is the original damsel-in-distress whom Mario must rescue from the eponymous ape in the original Donkey Kong.

Nobody really cared about Pauline except for when Super Mario Odyessey came out, and the fans are OBSESSED. For reals. After all, she does sing the iconic song "Jump Up, Super Star". God, have you seen some of the new controversy memes? When I say obsessed, I mean it.

6 Peach Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Run, and even starred in ...read more.

Princess Peach, aka Toadstool is a popular character due to being a playable character in some more recent Mario titles such as Super Mario 3D World. (One of my favorite games! ) Though she's not the sharpest tool in the shed, but people love her.

7 Bowser Bowser Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise. From kidnapping Princess Peach to simply destroying a fun game between Mario and Friends in the Mario Party spinoff series, this king of the Koopas has set up a certain hatred towards himself amongst the large cast of Mario Characters. He first ...read more.

This dude. Yep, this dude. The famous bad guy who even makes an appearance in the movie Wreck-It-Ralph, Bowser. He actually had a wife, according to the wikia. He's constantly stealing Peach, and attempting to spite Mario. Unfortunately, like Wario, he's been a subject of some pretty NSFW stuff... the internet these days, seriously...

8 Yoshi Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. He is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi and Mario franchises.

Our favorite! The green dinosaur, Yoshi! Yoshi is totally Mario's "steed" and has been in almost every Mario game since Super Paper Mario, even getting his own game! He's popular for constantly getting ditched by the player and just overall being cute, except in the live-action movie. He is LITERALLY A GREEN VELOCIRAPTOR. Oh, and also in the movie he gets stabbed by Wendy Koopa, who looks like a normal lady. (Weird! )

9 Dimentio Dimentio

You may not have heard of him, but those who do ADORE him. Dimentio makes his only appearance in Super Paper Mario, which is totally the most underrated video game in history. Dimentio is an absolute jerk who is constantly messing with you throughout the game. He is <Spoilers! > the true final boss of the game. People just love him for some reason. I hate him.

10 Broodals

These anthromorphic rabbit-like dudes act as Bowser's wedding planners in Super Mario Odyessy, the newest game in the franchise. People claim they're better than the Koopalings, but I can't say I agree. They, of course, are adored by the fans and have inspired a TON of fanart. Just look it up, seriously.
