Top Ten Mario Characters that Need More Development

The Top Ten

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.

Maybe different coloured Toads could at least have different strengths and personalities. Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time and Bowser's Inside Story had a couple of more interesting examples that were featured for a fairly short time, so there's no reason not to expand such individualities to other Mario games as well.

Toad and his species take out any creativity. I'm fine with them using Toads in Color Splash, but they could've made them all have different designs and better personalities.

Toad is a main characters but he''s way too generic, he needs a development that shows something particular from him, maybe he wants the best for Peach and want to protect her or maybe is a huge Mario fan and want to help him.

Toad needs more development other than that he is a fine character.

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.

It's sad that she's becoming the new Rosalina. At least Rosalina wasn't a damsel in distress and had a huge background. Toadette is bland and she's a damsel. - DCfnaf

Like Toad Toadette did not shown anything that stands over the other characters despite she's becoming a part of the main cast. - DaisyandRosalina

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.

Definitely. She's barely in any of the games so obviously she needs more development. - DCfnaf

Well, she's better than Peach, so that's one thing... - TwilightKitsune

This is an opinion so it's not enough, we need to see more things from her - DaisyandRosalina

Just a really boring character unlike Rosalina.

Rosalina? I hope you are talking about the old one because the new one is lame. - DaisyandRosalina

They should kill her off in Luigiā€™s Mansion 3 so she can finally develop into something different than Peach 2.0 and so they can finally stop shoving her everywhere.

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.

I wish there were more games where she's playable and have a major part of the story that isn't centered around being saved by Mario. Thousand Year Old Door, Super Paper Mario, and Super Princess Peach (All these games are considered spin offs) showed that Princess Peach has potential, though we don't see this in main Mario titles. It's kind of disappointing.

Despite being the main girl Peach is almost a bland character, the only thing we saw more was the classic princess that got kidnapped by the monster and got saved by a plumber. Nintendo should be focused on other things like her powers or make a game like Super Princess Peach.

She does not need more development she needs to go down the bottomless pit from gravity falls.

I hate her she is a terrible character.

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's character is in the same vein of most of Nintendo's protagonists. He's heroic, and bland, and wants stop the evil person. He's just the same as Link and Kirby.

What's his personality? He's heroic. Great...he's the main character and yet he's so bland...

Little known about Mario's personality is why people like Luigi more.

Ironically, Mario is probably the most under developed character because all I know about him is that he likes to jump.. a lot.

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.

Yup. We know nothing about her because Peach, Daisy, and Rosalina are all in the spotlight more.

The Sally Acorn of Mario

She is Mario's mom and Jumpmans wife and she is a business woman.

Pauline was the first lady not only of Mario games but for Nintendo in general.
Despite this today she's way too bland and unoriginal (originally she was called the Lady) basically she's a rappresentation of a real lady without particular traits, she was only kidnapped over and over by DK and never shown a personality.

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.

Nintendo didn't even fully confirmed the gender, enough said. - DaisyandRosalina

DaisyandRosalina, Birdo is a male, but he thinks he is a female. - TwilightKitsune

@TwilightKitsune that was only for Super Mario Bros 2.

Anyways, yeah, I feel like Nintendo is slowly trying to get rid of Birdo. - DCfnaf

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.

Put him a #1 now. This guy needs a story behind him, why is he here, what does he want, and what is he even capable of?

Rosalina and Daisy are way better and underrated than this filler clone

DUH! He's been in nothing other than Spinoffs and he's basically a poor man's version of Wario.

He's a part of the main cast but we did not know anything about him... (probably because he was created for be Wario's tennis partner)

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.

We know a lot about his background but can he just get a unique personality or something?

Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. He is the youngest son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

Bowser Jr did get a lot of character development in Super Mario Sunshine and we know his character motivation so he doesn't really need to be on here. - DCfnaf

He's too cute to have more development.

I thought Jr was cool but I just realize Nintendo us making him the 8th Koopaling, we need to see more unique things from him. - DaisyandRosalina

The Contenders

Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Franchise created by Nintendo. She first appeared in the 2007 Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy 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.

Rosalina and Daisy>Peach and Waluigi

Her and Daisy are superior to Peach

Why do so many people on this site hate Rosalina so much?

Because she is "overrated", "Peach Clone" and other silly excuses.

I knew those Rosalina Haters would come here. Idiots.

Candy Kong

I hate Diddy Kong they should give Candy Kong a chance he always gets in the games and its not fair.

Why do you hate her?

I don't hate her but she is not a Mario character but a DK one and this list is for Mario characters only - DaisyandRosalina

Candy is a DK character not a Mario one - DaisyandRosalina

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 .

That's only me? Anyone? - DaisyandRosalina

Here's why: Baby Daisy was created as a filler like Baby Rosalina, this is not really helpfull for a character.
Despite its unlike Baby Rosalina she doesn't damage Daisy's character (she is basically the confirmation that Daisy knew Luigi and Peach since she was a baby (Mario super suggers)) so we can give her something. - DaisyandRosalina

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.

Have him not be a bastard child of Darth Vader and Godzilla for once.

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

She was just thrown in Mario Kart 8 without any background or build up. If Nintendo made another game where Peach was a playable character and she could use this form then we might be able to see what potential it actually has.

Baby Luigi
Luigi Luigi is a 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 franchise, more.

VideoGameFan5, Luigi is one of the most developed characters!
