Mario Characters That Deserve Their Own Game


The Top Ten

1 Waluigi Waluigi is a lanky self-centered, brusque young lad as he is considered evil and the main rival of Luigi. Waluigi is shown causing local havoc in most games he appears in alongside his partner Wario. Waluigi is not instinctively evil or the antagonist (not counting DDR), as a matter of fact, he shows more.

Absolutely, in fact, there is a fan-made game called psycho Waluigi, and it's so good! It's really a wonder why Nintendo didn't pay the guy who made it $10,000 to buy the game from him and make it a 3DS game. The game is so well made that all they would have to do is change a couple of minor things about it and the game would be ready to port to the 3DS. Many that have played it consider it to be a true Waluigi game. It is a very well made, story-driven, and hilarious game that fits Waluigi is personality and character extremely well. But we're all the way there how Nintendo hates listening to people as they have not put Waluigi in Smash Bros, despite people asking for it since Smash Bros 4. Also, Nintendo didn't listen to us again when everyone hated in the stupid car mechanic in Mario Party 9 and instead of removing it they did the exact same thing in Mario Party 10 for the Wii U. I bet you Nintendo wouldn't even put wouldn't even put Waluigi in Smash or give him his own game even ...more

Yes - Yoshidude

I think Waluigi deserves a game, but multiplayer mode might be a problem as long as the bosses. I mean he could save Rosalina maybe. Oh well, I still want waluigi to get his own game. Who knows, if he gets his own game, his chances to be in smash might be higher.

Waluigi has infinite amounts of potential. He really is an enigma as of now, a clean slate if you will.
Waluigi to me deserves his own game, simply because of the funny antics he could pull off. Waluigi would do something not just for his own benefit, but to cause someone else pain. He would do absurdly silly and backward logical things. Although, cunning and a wicked sportsman, he doesn't think things through and many misfortunes happen because of it. But, I also think Waluigi isn't really a bad guy at all. I think if Waluigi seen someone in distress he would begrudgingly help them. Perhaps Waluigi is influenced by Wario and tries to be as rotten as he can, but maybe on his own he has a nagging sense to make the world a better place, or not! Waluigi definitely deserves a moment in the spotlight, I think if Nintendo gave him a shot, all the nay-sayers might warm up to the purple �".

2 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.

Here's an idea, how about a game where daisy encounters a mysterious shadowy female villain she and her friends have never seen before. The soulless wraith known as Cyndra plans to take over Sarasaland and recreate it in her own image. The very thought of this gave Princess Daisy and all her friends nightmares. In the nightmare, bloody corpses of Mario, Luigi, Bowser, and Yoshi are scattered around the terrain of the Mushroom Kingdom. Daisy woke up in a large puddle of sweat to see that Mario and friends are alive and well. Daisy and her allies knew that they must warn the citizens of the invasion. Once the climactic battle began, She and her warriors raided Cyndra's dark fortress and bravely fought through the wraith's large extermination squad. Daisy and her vastly outnumbered army slew many of the dark soldiers, but the fight was not without it's dangers, as the heroes dodged maces, war, axes, and hookswords. Once Daisy and her troops reached Cyndra's throne room. The two fought ...more

She can't because what I herad is that her creator dided - Yoshidude

I like the ideas from the fanfic "Daisy's Adventures". That way, Daisy is in the lead and we get an action-adventure-RPG-platform spinoff series that breaks the traditional mold and adds some much needed depth to a franchise that really has been devoid of plot and development outside of the Mario and Luigi RPGs and maybe the Paper Mario series. Plus, I like Daisy having her own cast of people to work with because I feel like if she teamed up with Mario and Luigi and whoever else, then it wouldn't be a Daisy game. It would be a game in which she helped out, but REALLY only played backseat to Mario and Luigi and Peach. She needs her OWN game series, and that means her own cast, her own game mechanics, her own storyline, and minimal interference from Mario and Luigi because they have had the spotlight for way too long. That would be her chance to show why she's just as good as Mario and Luigi - rather than show how she can be a supporting backup to them. Get her own series like how the ...more

What about Super Princess Daisy?

3 Koopalings

Should have been last I want to kill them now, this game will be forgotten from media forever

I think if you did make a game like that person said the bosses being the nice guys would be smart and cool!

Their game could revolve around them trying to save Bowser and Bowser Jr. From the once again evil Mario. The bosses could be in this order, Toad, Yoshi, Daisy, Peach, Rosalina, Luigi, Mario, and Mega Mario!

This time around Wendy o Koopa and bowser jr get kidnapped and it is up to the boys to save hem READ THIS NINTENDO

4 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.

She's stupid sucks power gay

She is amazing I know that she is a girl because in super mario bros 2 she threw eggs at you and only females can have eggs

I kinda associate Birdo with Waluigi and Daisy in the sense that they all seem like interesting characters that but only appear in the spin-off games. It would be awesome to see their characters develop a bit more. Also, fun fact, for the most part, every time Nintendo wants to try a game with a new mechanic, they use a side character. Luigi's Mansion, Warioware, Yoshi's Island, Etc.

I have an idea for an Birdo game: Yoshi gets kidnapped by Bowser and Birdo goes on a adventure to save Yoshi. It would he an awesome mario game!

5 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.

I have always thought about a game about bowser where you have different abilities than Mario and instead of saving peach you are trying to capture her

I know right! There totally isn't a M&L game where you can play as Bowser! - starryrcad

Super Bowser! Princess Peach finally stops being helpless and sends an army of toads to capture Bowser and put him in prison, and they walk into Bowser Jr.'s birthday party, and accidentally kidnap Bowser Jr. Instead. Bowser, who was buying a gigantic cake for his spoiled son, comes back just in time to see him getting kidnapped, And he begins a reverse Mario adventure starting in a lava world and ending in the Mushroom Kingdom. All of the main bosses (replacing the koopalings), are Mario with different power-ups. Yoshi, Luigi, and Peach, and the final boss is Mega Mario. - SuperLonk

Do you know about Bowser's Inside Story?! - Mooshry

6 Princess Rosalina

We need her to have a game.

I think this would be cool! Rosalina is awesome! Rosalina and Daisy should share a game where they save Mario, luigi and luma.

She is now so popular so why not give her her own game. I would defiantly buy it.

No... Sorry, but there are many other characters that are in need of being fleshed out. She appeared in a main Mario series and has been fleshed out a lot through the Galaxy series. Maybe later on like 5-10 years from now, but she still seems new. Also, she can be an unlock-able character to play with in Super Mario 3d World, not Daisy/Yoshi/DK/etc...

Other characters (Toaette, Daisy, Toad, Waluigi, etc) who appeared before her just get ignored. I love Rosalina as much as the next person, but I think she's been treated real well so far.

7 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.

That would be so cool! I would definitely spend all my money if a game like that ever came out. - RosalinaX

In my opinion her role in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker was major enough, though it would still be really cool if she got her own game one day. - Entranced98

Whoever said she has a big role in Captain Toad is right, but it's not called Captain Toadette, now is it?

No she doesn't! Plus she has a major role in Captain Toad:Treasure Tracker

8 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.

She should at least be a playable character.

A singing or dancing game for her.

She has to be a playable character but I don't think they will make her own game because she has not even been in Mario kart but hopefully she will be in the Wii you Mario kart

Pauline is the only one of the 3 that didn't get her own game. If they made her one it would complement them.

9 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.

Already had one. Diddy Kong's Quest, remember

10 Shy Guy

Here's a game idea for Shy Guy. Bowser once again invades the Mushroom Kingdom, but this time he catches Peach, Mario and Luigi. Then Shy Guy sees on Bowser's Airship that they are treated bad so he jumps off the airship. When he lands on the ground, he meets Yoshi. Yoshi is trying to find Mario, but he is nowhere to be seen. So Shy Guy and Yoshi (and maybe even Toad for all I care) team up to save Mario and Friends. Also, they could meet Rosalina, Donkey Kong and others characters along the way. Finally, we could finally see what Shy Guy looks like with his mask off.

YES! Shy Guy is so awesome! He should at least be a main enemy, but it would be great if he had his own game! - ShyGuySwag

Finally we might see under the mask. - Garythesnail

Yes. Please, Nintendo, take notes. - TheEliteComet

The Contenders

11 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, Super Mario Bros. after being kidnapped by Bowser and his minions. Since then he has more.

I think that there should be a game where Toadette is captured by Bowser and Bowser Jr. and Toad has to go on adventures with and have a magiucal Mushroom staff. on his side and collect a certain amount of mushrooms to unlock Bowser's Castle and beat a whole other stage. For the final boss Toad needs to defeat Bowser and Bowser Jr. and save Toadette. The game should be called "Toad"

We already have Treasure Tracker, and for the love of god we do not need to make Toadette get captured like Peach. - ThatOneRacer

I think Toad needs a game. Yeah, well the line is said by every Toad fan. Princess Peach should be captured in a deep dark dungeon of King Boo, Blargg, Boo, Shy Guy, Paratroopa, Birdo, and Toadette. (Toadette is tricking the rest of the villains. ) Toad, the Mario bros., and Fancy Pants are going stop King Boo. Then the credits are Toad, Mario, Luigi, Fancy Pants, King Boo, and Peach cracking the credit's names. It will be called Fungus Among Us.

1. He has his own game
2. No, they all deserve to be eaten by Bowser. They can't even do one job: protect a princess. They don't even try. And they give Luigi crap for being a "useless coward".

I wish they had a game for Toad to play in. They should make when Bowser takes toadette away and Toad has to save Toadette and beat Bowser in a fight!

12 King Boo King Boo is the leader of all the Boos, and the main antagonist in both Luigi's Mansion and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

King boo saves boo from mario luigi toad yoshi toadette and last mega mario

I prefer normal Boo, but however it would be cool to see a King Boo game. - thelegendaries101

I would love to play as boo

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

Captain goomba has already been made - Unnamed Google User Remade

Goomba should have their own game called Super Goomba Bros where he travels through the Kingdom, solving puzzles, collecting power ups, and more. Kinda like the Goomba version of NSMB. - ShyGuySwag

Kinda like the Goomba version of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. - SoaPuffball

Tired of being stomped on, falling in pits, and just walking between the same two pipes every game, one Goomba decides to take revenge on the world. He gets wings so he can jump, crushing any enemy in his path as he rampages through the kingdom to demand a raise from Bowser.
EDIT: Huh, they kind of did this in the Superstar Saga remake. That's nice. - Garythesnail


15 Bowser Jr

He is so cool, and you could ride in your clown car around the koopa kingdom! We need an other villain game, and bowser would be cool, but it would work better with Jr.. Player two could be ludwig (i think he's the oldest) and it would be awesome!

Absolute Fave Deserves At Least #6

He should be one of the first!

Great idea.

16 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.
17 Pink Gold Peach Pink Gold Peach is a character who debuts in Mario Kart 8, where she appears as an unlockable playable character.

Ha ha lol that's a good joke - Yoshidude

Very great idea.(sarcastic) I’m sure the game super pink gold peach will get lots of attention! ( sarcastic again) I would totally buy that game. ( still sarcasm)

Putrid piece of trash... - DCfnaf

Pink gold peach is a the laziest character ever created. Why do people think that metle Mario should have a girlfriend?

18 Dixie Kong Dixie Kong is a character from the Donkey Kong series. She is Diddy Kong's girlfriend and Tiny Kong's older sister.
19 Metal Mario

Cool and hi Metal Mario


Metal Mario desserves his own game. A LOT! Shadow Mario should also get a game all to himself! And while some of you may not realize it, Cosmic Mario from Super Mario Galaxy is actually Piantissimo, desguising himself as Shadow Mario. Metal Mario is my 2nd favorite Mario character and Shadow Mario/Cosmic Mario is my 3rd favorite Mario character! I totally think they both desserve their own games!

20 Dry Bones Dry Bones is a common enemy species in the Super Mario series of video games since „Super Mario Bros. 3“ (1988). After his first debut as a playable character in „Mario Superstar Baseball“ (2005), he became a fan-favorite and also got playable in other spin-offs of the Mario series.

Dry bones mania he saves a koopa and defeats mario and his friends all of the friends not 10 ALL of them

21 Luma

How would this work - RosalinaX

Adventure of the lumps would be adorable and awesome - YOSHIA2121

Why? Why would anyone say that!

Don't you know how cute and amazing they are? They can play tennis while Rosalina can't, and they protect her in SSB4 and while she plays golf! - tiffanyfrozen5110

22 Petey Piranha
23 Boo

The Boo Gang! Luigi Sucked up King Boo and the Boos have to get him back. They use their greatest weapon, strength in numbers.

Yes, because Boo is my favorite Mario character. - thelegendaries101

24 Shadow Mario

Do I even need to say why? He looks awesome! He brings a chill down the spines of kids playing super mario sunshine. And Let's face it, Bowser Jr. Needs some credit after countless misconceptions between him and koopa kid, the playable character found in the mario party games.

I this game and it is my favorite game and I like playing the game from Susanna

Shadow Mario IS awesome. While I love Mario and Luigi MUCH more than Jr. I agree Bowser Jr. should get his own game

Bowser Junior is the best character, and the Koopalings are close behind.
Give Bowser Junior an RPG! - HeavyDonkeyKong

25 Koopa


Please give Koopa a game! He is an awesome character and should have a game!

Koopa Troopa is the most common villain he deserves a game.

Exactly! Koopa is very funny and he deserves a game! It should be called : "Koopa Bros.".

26 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.

Mario doesn't deserve enough recognition in the Super Mario series! He needs his own game ASAP or we all die! I'm going to drink bleach if he doesn't get his own game with his name plastered on the title, with his big fat face on the cover art!
-Note the sarcasm- - RosalinaX

Curse the koopalings & their putrid boss battles
Mario deserves his own game

Mario should have his own game, the fanbase loves him a lot, but Nintendo hasn't made a game for him yet! - starryrcad

I agree. Mario needs his own game

27 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.
28 Kamella
29 Lakitu Lakitu, known in Japan as Jugem, is a fictional flying character in the Mario franchise. Created by Shigeru Miyamoto, it first appeared in the Nintendo Entertainment System video game Super Mario Bros., where it dropped enemies called Spinies on the stage.
30 Nabbit

That would make a pretty interesting game. - RosalinaX

Mario has stolen all the coins in the Mushroom Kingdom and teams up with Goomba and Koopa to get them back.

I would love to see this - Randomator


31 Fancy Pants

Huge mario fan yet never heard of him - Yoshidude

Oh dear lord - RosalinaX

Definitely deserves a game.

Why is he on this list?

32 Dimentio Dimentio is an evil harlequin magician and the main antagonist of the 2007 Nintendo Wii video game known as "Super Paper Mario". One of his notable features is that he has created his own Dimension, known as Dimension D.

Now that I think about it, Dimentio does deserve his own video game. I mean, he's definitely got the mysterious characters and powers for it.

Dimentio's own game is on it's way, in the form of paper Mario: Interdimensional Destruction.

33 Rex

I mean, it would work pretty good! I mean, have you seen SMW hacks where you play as a friendly rex? It would work! - GentleTrouter

34 Mr. L

The story could be, Luigi gets a call to come to an abandoned house. He goes to a house and gets his Mr. L identity back. You have to stop a villain named Count Dark

Fawful's Furious Game of Fury. - Garythesnail

Mr. L for the win! - yellowwinner

35 F.L.U.D.D


36 Baby Peach Baby Peach is the infant version of the major character from the Mario Series, Princess Peach. She is mostly known for her appearances in the Mario Kart Franchise in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 as a playable character, but she also appears in other Mario games, including Yoshi's Island DS, in which more.


37 Baby Daisy Baby Daisy is the infant version of the major character in the Mario Bros . franchise, Princess Daisy . She is known for her appearances as a playable character in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 . She is also found as a playable character in Super Mario Sluggers for the Wii .

She'd be much better off either in a Yoshi game, or one with a plot reminiscent of Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time. - Entranced98

There should be a baby Mario princess game and you have to take care of Daisy.

She should be in a Yoshi island.

Cute very cute

38 Boomerang Bro

Maybe a simple Mario enemy can have their own game. like goomba, Koopa, Fire Snake, And the others. but what I have chosen was the Boomerang bro. I know the Hammer Bro is more iconic but this is my opinion. hopefully this is good. bye guys!

Duh! because metal mario is "QOUTE" THE BEST "UNQOUTE", obviously he also needs his own game

39 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.

Hello donkey kong countrey is made

40 Cappy
41 Fire Flower
42 Blargg
43 Koopa Paratroopa

Strange choice, but I could see this. - thelegendaries101

44 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.

There totally isn't a spinoff game series where Luigi rescues his brother while he has to go through a haunted mansion, where he rescues Mario since he was missing and 2 games where it's Dr. Luigi and it's New Super Luigi U., so I agree. - starryrcad

He already has a game: Luigi's Mansion

The educational game Mario is Missing and Luigi's Mansion.

He already has Mario is Missing. - Mooshry

45 Geno

YES - RosalinaX

Why got we a Mario & Rabbids crossover, give us a Mario & Final Fantasy crossover like Super Mario RPG with Geno as a main protagonist. - MarcellD

We haven't seen Geno since Mario RPG let us have the return.

Please bring him back - Randomator

46 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.

Absolutely yes - Randomator

47 Gooper Blooper

There should be a game were Petey piranha is kidnapped by Bowser for failing to kill Mario in super Mario sunshine. Gooper Blooper must use his ink to get to Bowsers airship, save Petey piranha and destroy Bowsers engine so that can fall in the sea.

48 Baby Mario

Yoshi island games are technically Yoshi games. - Randomator

49 Goombella
50 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 .
