Mario Characters That Deserve Their Own Game


The Top Ten

1 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.

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

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

Picture this, Daisy walks around the mingle club and Mario is captured. Boos won't let Daisy get to save Mario. Why make Daisy save Luigi in Super Princess Daisy, Peach saved Luigi too, and her umbrella did all the work, anyway, Daisy's castle is haunted to so Luigi's Mansion is the hideaway. Daisy and Luigi ride on a Yoshi and a Birdo. But there are 7 worlds and one princess in every. Start with Vibe City with Luigi's Mansion and then 2 is Peach Cruise Ship and Princess Peach will advise you. Two health 1-ups are recieved for a princess or Luigi. Up to four players can play - Luigi, Daisy, Yoshi, Birdo. World 3 can be Donkey Kong's villa where Pauline is hostage. Once the game is beaten Daisy and Mario go home. A female boss named Raq, sister of Bowser steals Pico is a bonus world, 8. (For those who don't know, Pico is Peach's best friend and very smart). Credits come with Daisy and Mario and Deanna Mustard voices Daisy.

Daisy is so much better than she is treated. She and Sassaraland need and deserve their own game in their own uniqueness. I'm tired of running crazy through The Mushroom Kingdom saving Peach over and over. It's time we explore the neighboring Kingdom ruled by the one and only Princess Daisy.

2 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.

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 �".

Whenever I think of a character in the Mario universe that deserves his or her own game, the first character I think of is Waluigi. I don't know, but the idea of what Waluigi goes through intrigues me. Not the abuse though! Of course, this raises the question of whether his game would be a serious or comedic one? He does seem to be on the comedic side, slapsticks galore!

I can see it! A platformer akin to Jak and Daxter. The setting would of course be the Mushroom Kingdom. Have the story be as nonsensical as the joke main character himself. Maybe add an OC that would make him a competent character to play as. Like a Penny to his Inspector Gadget. It's funny! It's brilliant! It's Waluigi! - Thifer20

Maybe if Waluigi got his own game people wouldn't hate on him so much? I have a plush Waluigi, and it's adorable. I dream of the day where Wario and Waluigi get a game with them in it, not Mario and Luigi.

Make him good and get him aseries along with wario mario and luigi

3 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.

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!

Think it would be a good idea, but not for Peach to be the main villain. That just doesn't make sense.

Open World game please and Birdo is the new Lord

4 Koopalings

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

This would be a "maybe" idea. The problem is that Nintendo will never listen to out opinions or comments. So I'm pretty sure that there will never be a koopaling game and they will always be bad guys.*sighs*

5 Princess Rosalina

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.

We need her to have a game.

6 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.

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

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

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

Okay, why are Daisy and Waluigi(who are spinoffs only), the Koopalings(lame filler), Birdo(an enemy), and Rosalina ahead of him? He is the most iconic villain in video games, and he needs the treatment he deserves. - Drawbox

7 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.

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

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

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

A game about Toadette farting would be a real gas!

8 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.

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.

She should have her own game because she is the first girl and she's a mayor so it would be easy to make a game around her.

A singing or dancing game for her.

9 Shy Guy 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

I say that shy guy should have his own game. Everybody I talk to seems to like shy guy. He should have a game where the powerups makes him put on a different mask which gives hik new abilities. To villian in the game could be a huge boss named Popular Guy.

10 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.

The Newcomers

? Baby Peach 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.

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.

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".

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

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


14 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.

15 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.

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?

Cool very cool

Lmao good joke - Randomator

18 Metal Mario 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!

19 Luma Luma

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

Eh, I really don’t really know how I would feel about this.

21 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

22 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.".

29 Dimentio Dimentio

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.

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.

NO! - DCfnaf

36 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
