Top Ten Best Mario Characters

The Contenders: Page 2

21 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

22 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.

Saddest story in the Mario franchise. Who would have known he was merely heartbroken. - Antifi

23 Dimentio Dimentio

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.

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.

Jesus this guy is plain evil.
Without question the single most dangerous Mario villain to date.
He tries to destroy not just a world like Bowser or the X-naughts, but he tries to destroy the ENTIRE REALITY THE PAPER MARIO FRANCHISE KNEW! That’s a true conquest, and he even sets up his master plan with nobody (besides possibly Nastasia) ever suspecting in the game that he would betray Bleck that is how meticulous his moves are.

24 Pauline Pauline

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.

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 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’s a really great character.

25 Diddy Kong Diddy Kong Diddy Kong is a fictional character in the Donkey Kong series of video games, first appearing in the 1994 game Donkey Kong Country.

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

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

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 is a great character! Deserves more love!

26 Iggy Koopa Iggy 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.

Nicky Bacchus's favorite koopaling.

27 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

Why does everyone hate the babies, just because they cry?!?!?! Babies are supposed to cry, they can't talk, so when they cry that doesn't mean that they are sad or upset, it means that they are telling you something, and do not say that can say stuff cause even if they can, they still have to cry, plus they are learning how to talk. I will be praying for him and the others

28 Petey Piranha Petey 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.

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.

I personally LOVE Petey phiranna, he is basically the leader of the phiranna plants, who are usually pretty weak, but this guy puts up an actual challenge, I would love to see Petey In more Mario games, especially Mario kart.

29 Funky 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 can Rot in Hell - ToadF1

30 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)

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

Light blue = best color ever!
Light blue + yoshi is best thing ever

31 Ludwig von Koopa Ludwig von Koopa Ludwig 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.

It's because of this assclown and his six stupid siblings we can't have boss variety in Mario anymore. "Look! It's Bowser shrimp with troll doll hair/head accessory attacking with a wand and retreating in its shell just like in SMB3...and NSMBWii...and NSMB2...and NSMBWiiU...and Paper Jam...and Color Splash. It's no wonder you see so much hatred for the koopalings.

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

Horrid piece of trash this one is.

32 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

33 Vivian

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.

'Peach haters, please just get over it.'
Thank u. I doubt the peach haters will ever grow a brain and get over the fact that peach is a big part of the Mario series like Mario, Luigi, toad, and Bowser are... But I'm glad I'm not the only one with frikkn brains on this site

Funny since I thought I was the only one. My list of "Top ten Mario Characters that deserve less hate" has...PEACH at number one. - DCfnaf

34 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 is my favorite

35 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 saved Mario as well!

Why'd he drop? He's better than that fat piece of Krapaling! - DCfnaf

EGADD how is this not higher? - Antifi

36 Koopa Paratroopa

Same as Koopa Troopa but with wings

Just as cute as any other Koopa.

A flying turtle. Awesome!

Die in a fire you d*** you suck b**l die ya kill me all the time ya mankey wretch wait no mankey wretch is better by far

37 Black Yoshi
38 Lemmy 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!

The best Koopaling

39 Morton Koopa Jr. Morton Koopa Jr.

Terrible boss, terrible character. - DCfnaf

He is creepy with his black skin and star birthmark (his star birthmark looks like the band singer kiss :P)

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

He's basically the new Funky Kong in MK8 - ToadF1

40 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 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

Birdo should be number 1
