Top Ten Mario Characters that Deserve Less Hate


The Top Ten

1 Princess Peach Princess Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is the lead female of the The Mario 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 more.

Nobody seems to like Princess Peach. Most say it's because she gets kidnapped. THAT IS WHY YOU GO THROUGH ALL 8 WORLDS AND HAVE A FUN TIME. She is also accused of being mean, bossy, and immature. All of these things are not true, Peach is very civilized, polite, and kind. So STOP HATING ON PEACH. - DCfnaf

Yeah I think Mario, Bowser and Peach all know that they are all inside a game. Mario would be a very boring game if Peach didn't get kidnapped - Aidanisawesome

I completely agree with this! A lot of people seems to give Peach a pretty hard time, due to her getting "Kidnapped". But guys, The Mario Bro. Series was created back in the 1980's. Female heroes were basically unheard of. Back then, Female characters were known to be the damsel in distress. Besides, if Peach weren't to be kidnapped. What would the premise of the game be then? Just to randomly defeat Bowser with no reward? Peach plays an important role. However, I can agree with that it can get a little tiring after awhile. But Nintendo seems to be fixing that. (Ex; Super Mario World) it's a slow process. But I do see that Nintendo is showing how Peach can be a strong character.

Reply to DCfnaf yes she really does and it's obvious to us that aren't head over heels for her. For example Mario Kart 8. Did you notice the roster? Nobody else got cloned so many times other than her. Peach, Baby-Peach, Pink-Gold-Peach, Cat Peach?!?! That's clearly Peach bias! It's ironic people like to rag on Rosalina, but Nintendo shows much more bias towards Peach. It's really really annoying when you really want to see your favorite character join Mario Kart. Yet they keep getting ignored because the developers decided to clone Princess Peach 20x times. Why? She really doesn't need all of those roster slots. Have some consideration for the others, it's unnecessary to give her all of the favoritism.

I meant from the fans not Nintendo. By your logic, they gotta stop focusing on here. I'm actually NOT head over heels over Peach, but clearly your accusations MUST be right since you know everything about the world. - DCfnaf

In the past, I hated Peach. But now, I'm really starting to like her. She's pretty, has tons of cool powers such as healing and lambs, and she has her own game. The only thing I hate about her is her voice and how she doesn't do anything to stop Bowser from kidnapping her. But overall, she's a great character. - RosalinaX

2 Wendy O. Koopa Wendy O. Koopa Wendy O. Koopa is a female villain in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She is the only female member of the Koopalings and can usually be found assisting Bowser and Bowser Jr . on their wicked plans with the rest of the Koopalings . She first appeared in Super Mario Bros . 3 in 1988 and since then has been more.

She does deserve less hate, but so does Peach, who is neither an actual witch nor the b-word that rhymes with witch and no I won't deal with it.

That there are reasons to hate Wendy? Never judge a book by its cover, it will be ugly but good villainess. - Julieta

Yeah, I should've placed her at number 1 to begin with. The hate on Wendy is SO DUMB. Wendy is even like a female version of Ludwig! - DCfnaf

She's hated for dumb reasons. - ParkerFang

All the koopalings are hated, but Wendy is probably the worst. People just use stupid non-canon evidence from comics and T.V. shows to show that "Wendy is a stupid brat." and "Wendy is a spoiled piece of crap as a boss character." People, stop the hate. At least she's an original character, unlike Cat Peach (cough cough). - RosalinaX

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.

Wario is the best anti hero here, he stole Mario's castle! How can people prefer Waluigi over him? Huh? Because Waluigi has a personality, a develop, an important reason of existence and originality right? Oh, wait... - DaisyandRosalina

Waluigi also defies the laws of physics and only appears in spinoffs. He is also very likable and very unique...wait a minute! - DCfnaf

Wario is fat and unoriginal and shouldn't exist. It's his fault we get halfassed characters like Rosaline, Daisy, Metal Pink gold barbeque cat peach etc. They should have used Tatanga instead at least he is a creative character and not an obese Mario.

So your logic is that if the designs of the characters look similar to characters we already have, that means their clone characters? Ignoring the fact that their personalities are completely different? - DCfnaf

What's up with the hate? What did Wario do? - Randomator

He deserves it ^_^ - WendyIsQueen

4 Princess Daisy Princess Daisy Princess Daisy is a fictional character in the Mario series of video games, in which she is the princess of the fictional region of Sarasaland. more.

So Daisy has an annoying "Hi I'm Daisy! " quote? Lots of characters have quotes that can be just as annoying if not more annoying. Peach has "Oh, did I win? ", Mario has "Yehoo! " and "It's a me, Mario! " which is the same as "Hi I'm Daisy! ", Waluigi has "Too bad, Waluigi time! ", Wario has "Wario the Wiener! ", I'm-a Wario! I'm-a gonna ween! ", and "It's a me Wario! " which is also the same as "Hi I'm Daisy! ", Hammer Bro has "HALLO! ", "Hoo HOO! " and "Yo YO! ",

Personally I think Daisy should by number 1 on this list because almost ever Daisy hater bullies her for pointless or false reasons. I disagree with you guys saying that Peach haters are the worst because most of the Peach haters are actually fans of the 28 year old you tuber SlimKirby. I'm not interested in Princess Peach as much as I'm interested in Paratroopa who is a spiritual red Koopa Troopa who I first met when I played the Nintendo Game Cube video game Mario Kart: Double Dash. But most of Peach's haters defend SlimKirby.

Daisy doesn't care about her haters. She's useful because she was in Super Mario Land and is a cameo in Diary of a Kid Icarus and has a costume in Bayonetta. It's pretty cool. Suck it Daisy haters

5 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 more.

Put down your pitchforks and let me explain. This is a list of characters who DON'T DESERVE their hate. Rosalina's hate has gotten so bad lately that it's become obvious. She gets hate for 3 reasons.

1. Her Design (Oh sorry I mean EMO HAIRCUT)

It's a hair design. This has NOTHING TO DO WITH HER CHARACTER.

2. She was in Smash Bros 4 instead of Daisy

You hate a fictional character because you wanted the OTHER fictional character to get into Smash?

3. She's appearing more and more in the Mario franchise.

Yes. You read that right. Because she's MAKING MORE APPEARANCES, she has HATE. WHAT'S WRONG WITH HAVING A CHARACTER MAKE MORE APPEARANCES? This gives Nintendo to provide another female character that is directed to both girls and guys.

So let's talk about her gameplay (THERE'S MORE TO A CHARACTER THAN JUST DESIGN AND APPEARANCES). She's actually REALLY FUN to play as! Her, Mario, and Luigi are my favorite characters to play as in Super ...more - DCfnaf

Stop with the hate for Rosalina! Isn't a good thing that Rosalina ended up being in lots of games, Unlike other characters that appear in one game and then become non-existent. Rosalina is a very unique character and if we ever see a Super Mario Galaxy 3, I want to see Rosalina have a major role. I have even made up my own fan version of SMG3 in my head, which gives Rosalina a very important role. Rosalina is a character who should stay around until Nintendo stops releasing games, which should never happen!

Are you guys ready for this? I went on a coolest Mario character list. NO NEGATIVE COMMENT WAS GIVEN TO DAISY. Weird since she is hated right? Well a MAJORITY of comments to Rosalina were negative? WHAT? Told you this site is full of Daisy fans! - DCfnaf

Yes, it's the Rosalina fan here. I don't know why Rosalina is hated, because people always used to argue that she was the most awesome female character in Super Mario Galaxy and after. People literally kept asking Nintendo to bring her to more games and suddenly they're being ungrateful idiots who hate her because of her more appearances. Peach isn't hated on, and she's been part of the series and in all spin-off games since 1985! Outrageous people! - RosalinaX

6 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.

Birdo got a lot of hate because her gender is confused... but isn't evident that Birdo is a girl? Come on! And at least she has personality! - DaisyandRosalina

Who cares what gender SHE is? I think the gender is pretty obvious. Pink, wears a big bow, jewelry, makeup, etc.

Yeah...pretty sure SHE deserves less hate. Also, what about Mangle from Five Nights at Atrocious Fandom? Everyone disputes about its gender yet it receives no hate. - DCfnaf

I'm so annoyed they didn't put her in mario kart 8 deluxe.

Ugh. Iv'e always thought Birdo was a bit weird to be honest, but come on, why the hate? She's completely original, looks cool, and who cares about her confused gender? As DCfnaf said, Mangle is always debated on it's gender but everybody loves her. This is outrageous people. - RosalinaX

7 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've seen two top ten hated video game characters lists with THIS CHARACTER on it. Bowser Jr is hated because he is a spoiled and annoying brat. However THAT is what makes me like him as a villain. He doesn't want to battle Mario and the others because he has some sort of vengeance or hatred for Mario. He does it to please his Dad. Bowser Jr is a very unique villain in terms of motives. I also really enjoyed some of the boss battles with him (mainly his Super Mario Galaxy 2 fights). They were very memorable. - DCfnaf

It's not his fault that the koopalings suck - Randomator

People don't get it. He's supposed to look like baby bowser which is bowsers younger self. Bowser Jr. is supposed to look the same because they are the same species - Randomator

Peach and Daisy deserve all the hate they get. Peach sucks. All she does is get captured. Daisy hasn’t done any good either. At least bowser Jr. has some story in sunshine. And outside of bowser he has the most variety in boss fights. The koopalings don’t suck because they are overused, they suck because their fights are all the same. Bowser Jr. shows how one guy can still be fun over and over. He’s also gotten less annoying over the years.

8 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 more.

Game theory ruined him, he said that he's mental and mean with his brother. Game theory is... GAME THEORY not GAME FACTS! - DaisyandRosalina

If he actually paid attention in school he would've called his show Game HYPOTHESIS. - DCfnaf

This is Game Theory's Fault. Everyone loves Luigi and no one cares for Mario as much anymore. HE DOESN'T DESERVE THE HATE! Hey, MatPat! YOU DON'T USE YOUR OWN THEORIES AS FACTS! You have such an EGOTISTICAL and SICK mindset! - DCfnaf

Thanks game theory. Nobody wanted this hell that was created by you - Randomator

I had to do a debate on this topic of Game Theory. This is sad how much we have tumbled down.

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. more.

Daisy fans calling him filler apparently is they're unaware Daisy is just as filler. Poor things.

The reason they call him filler is true and Daisy isn't filler. You're just a jealous Waluigi fan that's all - ParkerFang

He gets hate for the stupidest of reasons. "Non canon" please, Mario has none.

The hate for him is stupid. He's no more worse than all the Mario characters.

He is not hated but he need hi own game

10 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.

Very underrated. She doesn't appear much. - DCfnaf

She doesn't appear anymore you mean... They surely want to avoid drama since its Mario ex - TopiTaupe

She should be in Mario Tennis and Mario Kart games. She's like the firs female character ever to appear in Mario and Nintendo has just decided to throw away all the potential they could've had with this character but no, they had to make her only a background character. How stupid is it that they add Metal Mario, Cat Peach, and other filler characters when they could've added a bunch of other original characters. So stupid! - RosalinaX

Why would anyone hate her?

She only appears in the lame Mario vs. Donkey Kong.

The Contenders

11 Toad Toad Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He assists Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom and will do whatever it takes to help her. He first appeared in the classic game, USA exclusive Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES. Since then he has been a reoccurring more.

Too bad, I Hate Toad, Jennifer Lee Taylor Was Amazing Actor for Princess Peach But This Character is Obnoxious

Why? are you people forgetting the fact that he helps Mario on his adventures in the main series games? He's not a bad character, I actually like him more than Daisy and Peach combined. (Sorry Daisy and Peach! ) - RosalinaX

He needs more like 10x more

"Thank You Mario! But your princess is in another castle" UGH HE IS SO ANNOYING"

This was YEARS AGO. Also, why don't you expect that? THAT is not a reason to hate a character! - DCfnaf

12 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 more.

I actually like him because he makes your boss battles much more fun and challenging. Do you guys want to games to be cakewalks? (Well...more than cakewalks? ) - DCfnaf

He definitely pisses off the best of us, but that's why I like him. :D
Makes the game more challenging, why was this guy not in Mario Kart 8 deluxe? - RosalinaX

13 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 more.

People hate him because he uses the koopalings over and over. ITS NOT HIS FAULT THAT THEY SUCK - Randomator

I'm sick of people saying that Bowser uses the sand plans over and over. He doesn't. Other than that,he is generally liked. - DCfnaf

14 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.

Oh, who the hell put Ludwig on the list? - DCfnaf

He's a krappaling. End of story - Randomator

15 Mona

It's all the Wario/Captain Syrup shippers who hate her for "interfering", never mind that Wario and Syrup are rivals thus wouldn't hook up anyway.

DCFnaf hates Her because she's not a dumb Mary Sue or a yellow peach clone.

Yeah go ahead and pick on me because you have no proof that I hate her. Please get educated - ParkerFang

16 Toadsworth Toadsworth

Guys, this is just stupid. There's no reason to hate Toadsworth! End of story! - RosalinaX

He gets hate because he is overprotective. WOULDN'T YOU FEEL THE SAME IF YOU WERE PEACH'S CARETAKER? - DCfnaf

17 Queen Bean
18 Candy Kong Candy Kong

Not a Mario character - Randomator

What? Donkey Kong character! - RosalinaX

She's a DK character - ParkerFang

She’s ugly!

19 Donkey Kong Donkey Kong Donkey Kong is an arcade game released by Nintendo in 1981. It is an early example of the platform game genre, as the gameplay focuses on maneuvering the main character across a series of platforms while dodging and jumping over obstacles.

Really? Donkey Kong isn't hated! - DCfnaf

20 Vivian Vivian
21 Tatanga Tatanga Tatanga is a villain from the Mario Bros. Franchise. He is known as Princess Daisy's arch nemesis as he has targeted her on kidnapping missions. His only appearance was in the 1989 game, Super Mario Land, in which he kidnapped Princess Daisy and was the main villain of the game against Mario.

I don't think he is hated, I think he is just forgotten. - DCfnaf

I swear almost all Mario Fans don't even know who this guy is. Also kinda wasted potential of a character, Nintendo. - RosalinaX

Yeah he is like King K. Rool, he only made one appearance in the Mario Franchise and didn't come back till Super Sluggers.

22 Koopa Kid Koopa Kid

A better character than bowser jr

23 Toadette Toadette Toadette is a character in the Mario series. She is a female Toad who first appeared in the Nintendo GameCube video game Mario Kart: Double Dash.

I think the reason why Toadette gets a pass for appearing in everything is because unlike Rosalina, Toadette was created for spinoff games only and most people feel that Rosalina has had more than her fair share of appearances in spinoffs. Toadette has only appeared in half the spinoffs Rosalina appeared in. Therefore people hate Rosalina more but hate Toadette less.

Don't take this wrong. Toadette was my favorite character to play as in Mario Party 8, 10 Star Rush but she and Paratroopa both serve the same purpose in spinoffs. So that Toad could have a partner and Koopa Troopa could have a partner. Paratroopa is a character in the Mario Series. But I like Paratroopa better because he is a spiritual red Koopa Troopa who first appeared in the Nintendo GameCube video game Mario Kart: Double Dash.

I've changed my mind on her, I think she is starting to get a little overrated. She was in Captain Toad, then in Paper Jam, and now in Super Mario Run. So the majority now hates Rosalina because of her appearances in everything but somehow she gets a pass. Logic, my friends. - DCfnaf

Like with Toad, I also really like Toadette. She's not overrated compared to the koopalings and yoshi. - RosalinaX

24 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 more.

I hate him because his fans are arrogant and he's overrated.

You Shouldn't Judge Something Off The Fanbase And Overrated Doesn't Mean Bad, But I Still Respect Your Opinion On Luigi - JPK

Luigi is overrated

No hate whatsoever. If anything he gets too much love because of brainwashed GT fans believing in a certain "theory" - Randomator

Danteem somehow put him here.

People hate on him because a small group of people want him for smash...

Wait...are you SERIOUS? THAT is their pathetic reason to hate a CHARACTER? - DCfnaf

Wish Geno could come back. He makes a good character. ;C - RosalinaX

28 Wart

Not hated - Randomator

29 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.

I'm not sure about anybody else but I think Yoshi is a tad overrated.

Everyone loves him because he is cute. Yoshi is more than that. His definitely overrated. I don't know what idiot Yoshi Fan put Yoshi on this list...he is not hated at all! - DCfnaf

Who put Yoshi on the list? - DCfnaf

No hate whatsoever - Randomator

31 Pink Gold Peach Pink Gold Peach

Um no she deserves All the hate she gets

I agree she needs more love. -George Shaw

Deserves the hate.

She DESERVES the hate that she gets! She is an obscure character that came out of Nowhere! she’s was a lazy character choice,and she’s irrelevant to the franchise unlike literally any other character. The fact that there are people who legitimately defend her by saying Metal Mario needs a girlfriend is mind boggling. - Randomator
