Top Ten Best Mario Characters

The Top Ten

1 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.

Yoshi is the cutest character, the second is Luma and the third is Toadette.

Amy Rose has got nothing on Yoshi, plus Sonic Adventure is awesome! Also, for the other comment, you list Yoshi as "mediocre" but you put Daisy as "quite good?! " - Berger

Yoshi is awesome and cute! If this dinosaur don't make you happy nothing will.

Come on he's cute and strong. In ssbb I destroyed bosses on intense with out dying once with yoshi. He is worth it to get or unlock

This is a good example for Yoshi as he's a SECRET WEAPON for Mario and Luigi - Arrowstorm

Amy Rose has got nothing on Yoshi, plus Sonic Adventure is awesome! Also, for the other comment, you list Yoshi as "mediocre" but you put Daisy as "quite good?! " - Berger

Reaction:! £%@ You! he's the best game character! idiot!

2 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.

Why do I think more of Luigi than anyone else? He has a distinguishable and amusing character, being the easily scared younger brother, he always follows his heart, and in Luigi's Mansion(stop hating and actually play it) he shows how brave he is by fighting off hundreds of terrifying ghosts in order to save his brother. 'enough said

Luigi is the only Mario character to gain a personality. He inspires others to try and faces his fears. He is also my favourite video game character. GO LUIGI.

He is one of the best developed characters in the series and one of the only characters to earn his own official video game. He is also a really nice guy in general and a hero in his own right, ready to help others whenever he can, even if he is often perceived as a coward or usurped by others. Luigi is easily unnerved in comparison to other characters, and a bit of a daydreamer to boot. But it is the fact that he can surpass these aspects of himself that makes him one of the most admirable characters of this series. Clumsily lovable, he has a big heart and always tries to do the right thing. He's actually really op, though you wouldn't think it, and he is more endorsed in power and athletics than his older brother (jumps higher, can manipulate fire and electricity). Plus, with Luigi, his goals are often accomplished without much effort on his part. He's just that awesome. If you still aren't convinced, just check out his Mario Strikers theme. Come back here after that and say he ...more

Luigi is the best character in my heart. He always has been even if I sometimes preferred other franchises. Some people say that he’s incompetent, but I don’t agree. He’s very brave and will do anything to help his brother out. Luigi, keep being a wonderful character!

3 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.

People like to think yoshi is the best, and he is great, but mario was the star of so many great games that we all love

He's the main man. He's number 1!

Mario is a franchise where there isn't really a character I dislike. Sometimes I hate on side bosses just cause they're annoying, but every character is charming and important in their own right. That's why it's hard to choose the best. Peach is the damsel in distress, ladylike but willing to step up and fight when needed. Luigi is goofy and cowardly, and has a well-developed personality that stole the hearts of lots of gamers. Bowser is the main antogonist, ambitious and obnoxious, but also has great design and drives the nostalgic Mario plot forward. There are so many characters I adore, even ones that appear once like Dimentio, for their clever dialogue and ability to add new things to the game. This is the reason I chose Mario. He's the main man, the one who started it all. He is a positive role model from our childhood memories, with his silly, energetic demeanor and his willingness to save the world over and over. He's reliable, and happily endures all the challenges he faces. ...more

4 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.

The koopalings are widely hated due to their repetitive boss battles and never providing any form of variety. Not even Bowser cares for those seven dreadful bastards. In Paper Jam we saw the koopalings being killed off and they said things like "Avenge us, Master Bowser! " Bowser just stood there like "Eh..." Heck, Paper Bowser was going to destroy the magic book with the paper koopalings still inside. At the same time we saw how Bowser truly cares for Bowser Jr. "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY SON?! " This was followed by Bowser attacking Peach's castle. He's usually trying to take over Peach's castle, but he blew it up in response to what happened to his son. I have to give my respect to the big lug.

I hate the koopalings so damn much, stinking up multiple to all the boss areas with Boom Boom in all the recent Mario games with their samey, uninspired and overused battles. However, Bowser, Bowser Jr and Kamek are cool. The three of them have personality and do interesting things.

Bowser! HE IS THE BEST AND LET ME SHOW YOU WHY! Bowser is the perfect bad guy with giant, strong, arms with COOL spiky bands around them. he breaths FIRE! He is so awesome looking with giant claws, a scary look, and a giant shell on his back! The shell isn't a shail shell; it's a big green shell with spikes about the size of Mario!

Don't you think THAT should be the best Mario character? 'No' you might say well then decide for your self. Bowser is the ruler of many, many, castles. Each one is a gigantic, awesome place. Each castle is different! From statues who spit giant fireballs, (see Mario kart wii) to gigantic portals that suck you in (see super Mario galaxy 2. )

Bowser also has millions, and I mean millions of minions! The minions are most of the time strong, but really dumb. But stength comes in numbers am I right?
With that many minions Bowser could do, who knows what?
Bowser is invinsable! No matter when or where Mario defeats him, he always is NEVER ...more

A bit overrated, even though I love him in the RPG's especially - darthvadern

He first appeared in the classic game, USA exclusive Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES. Since then he has been a reoccurring ...read more.

Toad is extremely cute! Who wouldn't like him? Toad is kind, loyal, and funny! He helps Mario and Luigi and Peach! If you think that Toad is whiny and can't do anything for himself, you're looking at the wrong guy! Peach is perfectly capable of saving herself, but is too lazy too. Toad does all he can too help, but he is too small to do something really big. He just helps all he can!

This cute mushroom is one of the only characters in the game that has no nose. He's just SO adorable!

#1 goes to mushroom head!

His voice is funny, and I actually like him saying that Peach is in another castle. He’s also cute and just great overall.

6 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.

He's good and bad forgive the guy for farting and being greedy but he is awesome fat and all for real

Takes anybody in the parking lot.

Wario is very strong. If you play super Mario 64 he can destroy black blocks.

P- party lack. She likes to be calm and be saved every time.
E- every time she cries like a baby.
A- annoying, just don't say her name.
C-charity charity! Where are you?
H- horrible!
Don't hate on my comment I just don't like peach ok? Plus her lumas are the cutest star things I ever seen!

I don't like Peach but I'm not a hater. But I see where you are going with it. Rosalina is better and I love her story. And I like how she is a celestial enchantress for a princess. It's pretty damn unique in my opinion.

Rosalina is one of the most amazing and majestic Mario characters in existence who can be seen as a motherly figure with revolving cute little Lumas. She is attractive with a nice calm and mature voice and wears a unique teal dress. Rosalina has a wand which grants her magical powers to perform abilities such as levitation, forcefields and even control a large beautiful comet observatory as a spaceship.

She is one of those rare gem characters representing the modern era, originating in a main game (Super Mario Galaxy) and actually has a back-story. In her beautiful story, due to her loving and caring nature; she assisted a 'strange creature' now known as a Luma in an attempt to find it's 'mama', even at the expense of her own family. Doesn't this say a lot about her character?

Even though Rosalina is still a relatively new character, she's beginning to appear in many more games, even making an entire playable appearance in a small roster of 5; in one of the most ...more

Rosalina is the type of character that you can't help but feel sorry for. She's had a pretty tragic early life, with the death of her mother. This is what makes her different to Peach - Peach is just the ordinary damsel in distress. Rosalina didn't deserve to experience tragedy, yet she is a strong enough character to adopt and care for all the lumas. She is a loving, kind and unselfish person, and sometimes I wish I could be more like her in that way. Also said to be intelligent. She is a good role model to the young children who play Super Mario Galaxy.

What I love most about Rosalina is the fact she is one of the very few characters (possibly the only character) who actually has a developed backstory. You have Mario, Peach, Luigi and all the others who are just there and nothing is revealed at all about them. Rosalina's backstory just adds that element of interest to the franchise.

And of course, she is also attractive. Not sure of other people's opinions, but I ...more

Rosalina isn't even relevant to the series anymore. Blue Peach should be replaced by Ludwig as the new staple!

8 Bowser Jr. Bowser 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.

I'm glad Bowser Jr is NOT a koopaling. The last thing we need is for him to be "generic koopa #8 who flings glitter from his pixie stick." Bowser Jr is not only Bowser's right hand man, but he's Eggman! He builds and uses machines against Mario. Bowser Jr modified his junior clown car into a submarine! Bowser has never done this with his koopa clown car.

People troll him just because he's not a Koopaling. Okay, so what? He was a good addition to Mario Sunshine and is personally my favourite of the Koopa Kids. The others just look... WEIRD. Bowser Jr. Actually resembles his father in a way. He is JUST PLAIN AWESOME.

Bowser Jr really is awesome! Bowser Jr. Has a paint brush can even rival Drawcia from Canvas Curse. This guy really has some awesome boss battles and is a threat in the mario & sonic series, mario party, mario kart, and the sport series. Fawfaul's Minion, you may shun Bowser Jr. Greatly, but if you dare mock my game character, I will have Dikelo, Radox, and Terata chop you! Just kidding. But seriously, do not mock him.

One of my favorites.

9 Waluigi Waluigi Waluigi is a selfish, greedy man who works closely with the infamous Wario. He is Luigi's rival and is known as the opposite of him. Waluigi first appeared in the Gameboy Color game, Mario Tennis as Wario's partner. He has appeared in every Mario Tennis game since, still remaining as Wario's partner. ...read more.

Even worst than the damn koopalings when it comes to useless filler.

Even with Waluigi being there just to assist Wario, he has become more than that, gaining a pretty funny personality. And come on, you had to chuckle at the voice at least once. He will forever be my favorite. He may not be the best tennis character, his soccer character is pretty good when doubled with Wario, but stand alone he is still good. Waluigi is #1!

Honey Queen has no personality, and was in ONE level in Galaxy. At least we know stuff about Waluigi. We know that Honey Queen is lazy because she needed Mario to get the star pieces off of her instead of doing it herself. At least Waluigi has fans. Honey Queen's fans say the same things: "Honey Queen is so kind and beautiful! Waluigi is the opposite! "

I always like to think about who they Shy Guys really R.I can transfer whatever back story I want to them, and they end up as really interesting characters.

I have alaways loved Shy Guy in the Mario games. From regular, to flying, to fire breathing! I have alaways wonderd how does he look without his mask? The world will never know. -Eric33345

15 Fawful Fawful Fawful, known in Japan as Gerakobits, is a fictional character appearing in the Mario & Luigi series of role-playing video games developed by AlphaDream.

Fawful is awesome. Everyone who hates him should go get a life. Those who compare him to Plankton or say he doesn't have arms you obviously haven't played the game, because IF YOU PLAYED THE GAME, then you would know these are traits that he does NOT have.

Fawful is NOT a cheap idiot or loser. Sure, he laughs weirdly, talks weirdly, and makes weird food metaphors, but that ADDS to his character, not taking away from it. He is a valuable henchman to Cackletta in the first game, carrying out her orders successfully and efficiently until he is defeated by Mario and Luigi. He is also a tactical genius who manages to take over the Mushroom Kingdom without a scratch (before Bowser stops him, but hey, it's Bowser), he captures the Dark Star and almost becomes the essence of dark power.

If you aren't a fan of the RPG's and haven't actually bothered to play the games, DO NOT judge the characters! Don't say that a character is a fail who doesn't deserve to be on this list just ...more

One of the most clever video game antagonists of all time! 2 words: suicide attempt!

Princess Peach is the most admirable character you can think of in the Mario universe. She is strong willed, athletic, and quite pretty if I might mention. Everyone that hates her just says that. They don't have any proof. It's not her fault she can't move while Bowser is right there. We wouldn't have a story plot without her. I mean it's just better. Mario has a purpose to running around worlds. And he gets a girl! And don't forget that she plays a lot of sports. Not just one, but all of them! She is an Olympic athlete, and that is something to be proud of! She also her own game, Super Princess Peach. Where she tries to save Mario and Luigi, on her own. No help except a talking Parasol (His name is Perry, and he is super cute! ) Now I know your probably all like, "But that game is stupid, she uses her emotions to proceed." But it's not stupid. Sense when can you change your emotions in split seconds. Nobody but she can! (Well, except for Pinkie Pie but were just gonna save ...more

I like Rosalina because of how complex and developed she is as a character. She is also a nice change of pace from the usual "damsel-in-distress" female character that we usually get. I like Peach and Daisy too though, so relax. - DCfnaf

She's a sweetheart! I wish people stop spreading lies about her or hating her for stupid reasons because she's in most games while they feel Daisy/Pauline/Birdo/etc... are left out. Well hello! That's like complaining that Mario is overrated or Bowser is and the other guys need more a chance at the spotlight. Peach is the one the originals and has been there throughout the years. I'm not saying I don't want a Super Princess Daisy or have a game where Luigi has defeat Waluigi to stop him from destroying the world or something. But point is it's unfair to do it to Peach cause you guys are jealous and it's obvious you are cause she's all over everyone's comments and its repeated over and over that Peach is 'ugly' while Daisy and Rosalina is beautiful I do think all of them are gorgeous and would like to see them more but I'm not going to blame Peach for us not instead we should complain to Nintendo or Shigeru Miyamoto cause they can do something hating a fictional character for stupid ...more

Lol Daisy's not ugly either. Actually she's kinda pretty. But Waluigi wont destroy the world - DCfnaf

Princess Peach is so overrated. I do not have to like Princess Peach & her unreasonable voice. She is rude & reminds me of Barbie dolls. She gave us the evil eye in Super Mario Galaxy. She may be beautiful, but Daisy & Rosalina are much prettier.

19 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.

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- I'm a girl that used to date Mario gets kidnapped by a Monkey that has a crush on me and gets put on an open platform.

Peach- I'm a Princess with strong wish powers and gets kidnapped by a giant turtle that put me in a cage above lava to seal my powers. - Qryzx

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.)

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

Boo is the most memorable video game ghost character in my opinion, the Boos are what a great factor of luigi's mansion is about. they also share a great background story from a Nintendo employee which inspired the Boo's temper, timid and shy when observed working, but very boastful when not observed. Just such a well creative and good character on a lot of aspects. But enough said, he is cute and kool!

27 Blumiere a.k.a Count Bleck

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.

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.

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.

Count Bleck is easly one of the absolute best, to be honest, he's about as good as Birdo, wait, I think he's even better! He has such a complicated backstory and has actual reasons for being a villian! Bleck is the best! - darthvadern

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.

Hippest Mario Character ever.

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.

He's a classic! - darthvadern

31 Light 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)

He is one of the better Yoshi's in my opinion - darthvadern

Any yoshi - Theflashfrost

32 Kamek Kamek Kamek is a common enemy in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He usually appears in New Super Mario Bros. Games, Super Mario Bros. Games, or other similar games. He also appears in spinoff titles, like Mario Party, in which he is not a playable character but creates an obstacle for the players on their way ...read more.

How the hell is Kamek behind any of those horrid koopalings?! He's the head magician of the koopa troop. Kamek deserves more respect.

Bowser Jr. Grandfather. Anyone who is related to Bowser Jr. Is amazing!

Funny, I've never heard anything negative about Kamek. I always thought he was just obscure.

Anyhoo, I think Kamek is a pretty cool character. For some reason the thought of a snarky, beleaguered caretaker for the young Koopa king appeals to me. It's too bad he didn't make it into Mario Kart 64, though.

He is the sole reason why Bowser is the villian he is today! He needs some more respect! - darthvadern

33 Birdo Birdo Birdo is a dinosaur that is well known for her (or his) confused Gender. It was originally stated that Birdo was a male who believed he was a female, but this was changed in later games. Birdo is commonly referred to as a girl, however, they are in a relationship with Yoshi. Birdo first appeared in ...read more.

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

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!

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

I'm pretty sure people don't care about Birdo not being a Yoshi. They just don't like her because they either think she's ugly, doesn't like transgenders, or both. While saying this, I love Yoshi and Birdo so don't think the people who hate Birdo are mostly Yoshi fans.

34 Mr. L Mr. L

Mr. L should've been at the top of this list, and I hope he is soon. Mr. L is one of my favourite characters in ANY video game. He is just an excellent character. He was interesting, had a certain smug charm to him, and made the perfect final boss to Super Paper Mario.

Why isn't he near the top? Haven't ANY of you guys played Super Paper Mario? THIS GUY IS AWESOME! He is the exact opposite of Luigi. I thought it was cool to see this side of Luigi, even if it isn't exactly him.

Mr. L is so awesome! He just has this amazing personality and music!

Mr L is my dad!

35 Blue Toad

This guy (these guys? ) are way better than regular toads. They actually get out and fight along with Mario instead of the red spots who just stand around making Mario do all the dirty work! He and Yellow Toad are the best toads!

Captain Toad Is WAY Better Than Blue And Yellow Toad!

I like toads and I like blue!

My second favourite Toad - darthvadern

36 Goomba Goomba Goombas, known in Japan as Kuribo, are a species of sentient mushrooms from Nintendo's Mario franchise.

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

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

Wears same clothes everyday. Lazy

He's a classic! He also looks super cute! - darthvadern

37 Black Yoshi Black Yoshi

Good job, sml, good job - rankist

Good Yoshi - darthvadern

38 Professor E. Gadd Professor 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

He's a very serious character, but his hilarious and cute voice makes it so that I can't take him seriously, and that's what's so great about him! He's hilarious and an excellent character from the Luigi's Mansion series! - darthvadern

He saved Mario as well!

He’s better than Iggy Koopa! Get him higher on the list - KingSlayer93316

39 Geno Geno

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

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

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!

I've had a lot of free time on my hands ever since the events of Mario RPG were over. However, I am negotiating with Mashiro Sakurai to get myself in the next Smash Bros. I would like to thank all of my friends, family and fans. -Geno

40 Lady Bow

She is just plain cool she is my favorite paper mario partner
I always want her out please vote she deserves to be higher

Aww why ranked so low? Not only is her design cute, but she's a great character. Plus she's a boo. But not only is kind & loved by the boos around her, but she's also brave, strong, & a bit mischievous, but kind and understanding. Defiantly should be higher on the list.

If only Lady Bow had a big, feminine ass that relates to (& is as big/wide as) her wide body & an actual vagina that related to her green-colored immortal body.

Just plain out amazing every time I play paper Mario I use lady bow the most she is sassy and a great charector and amazing.

41 Baby Luigi Baby 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

In my humble opinion this is my favourite mario baby because he looks the coolest in my opinion - darthvadern

42 Captain Toad Captain Toad Captain Toad is a variation of the major character, Toad in the Super Mario Bros. Franchise. He first appeared as a playable character in Captain Toad levels in Super Mario 3D World and later appeared as a playable character alongside Captain Toadette in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.

I like his outfit style compared to the other toads. Captain toad is adventurous an I wish he'd replace toad in other games. He's my favorite toad and I hope he can appear in a Mario Kart Game.

This is literally toad with a different outfit

Captain toad treasure tracker is one of the best games with Kirby Triple Deluxe and Wind Walker. Hope they make an second one on the switch

Actually not really, he can't jump which makes him annoying to use in Super Mario 3D World - darthvadern

43 Morton Koopa Jr. Morton Koopa Jr.

Morton? More like moron.

He's dumb, and his voice in MK8 is annoying.

Terrible boss, terrible character. - DCfnaf

30 years to get good and he still sucks.

44 Metal Mario

Metal Mario AND metal luigi are both awesome characters, from smash bros. Melee to Mario kart 7, they've been awesome to battle and play as!

He's way too underrated. He should be ahead of Pink Gold Peach!

Come on! This character is so cool he even sounds cool!

Really? He's the reason all clones like PGP exists! - darthvadern

Annoying, weak piece of crap.

Worst suckling.

The same stupid rubber ball thing every time! Lemony licks butt.

I hate Lemmy.

46 Larry Koopa Larry Koopa Larry Koopa is the youngest koopaling. He first appeared in Super Mario Bros 3, which came out in 1990. He is known for his blue mohawk hair. He was created by Nintendo.

Best on the list in my opinion

Larry is awful. He and his six comrades take out boss variety in the games. While I do find Ludwig interesting, he is not a good boss. Larry is the worst in my opinion and gets to much love because of his Mohawk. Larry does the same thing every time and it gets boring.

I like him because he is simple and easy to beat in New Super Mario Bros Wii

Dust bunnies are more threatening and interesting than Larry.

47 Toadsworth Toadsworth

The best toad ever

Well at least he actually shows his protection to Peach unlike the other Toads who are bunch of misfits! They should come back if they ever get the courage to defend Peach.

With Toadsworth the win is near. He is a very funny and exciting character. AHA HE!

Well, he's Peach's defender in many RPG's including Super Mario Sunshine. He's great! - darthvadern

48 Goombella Goombella

If I could vote more than once I would. Goombella is my favorite mario bros character EVER. she really needs to come back in a new tennis or party game or something - taishisohma

Super princess peach and you agree - Blueyoshiparody123

She is cute

Goombella is great and actaully has a name, Bella. And she's not too girly like Peach and Daisy. Peach is the wrong choice. On her game, it's Super Perry, like Perry is the only other female in Peach's own game. Goombella also prooves strongness under the females like Birdo. Without them it a bunch of girly weak princesses. And there has to be more female villains like Fancy Pants or Olivia the Pirahna Plant.

49 Hammer 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

In my opinion they are some of the best enemies in the mario series! Especially their fire bros. and boomerang bros. - darthvadern

50 Nabbit Nabbit

He is awesome in new super luigi you because he can't die

Really? He's super annoying in New Super Mario Bros. U! And even more annoying in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros.! But he's a unique idea for a character though I will give him that - darthvadern

He Never Dies Except That You Fall From Pits Or When Time Is Out etc. - CuteGirlJigglypuff

Larry, over this guy?! Kanye: HOW SWAY? Me: WHAT?!
