Top Ten Mario Characters that Need More Development
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 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 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 needs more development other than that he is a fine character.
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.
Like Toad Toadette did not shown anything that stands over the other characters despite she's becoming a part of the main cast.
Now I know that being a tomboy is a rare form for a Princess, they are not so present in video games, tomboys princesses are Daisy... Alena... Lucina... and... uhm... not a lot of them, but we still need to know more about her live at Sarasaland.
They should kill her off in Luigi’s Mansion 3 so she can finally develop into something different than Peach 2.0 and so they can finally stop shoving her everywhere.
Definitely. She's barely in any of the games so obviously she needs more development.
Just a really boring character unlike Rosalina.
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.
I hate her she is a terrible character.
She is awesome in the RPGs thoug.
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.
Ironically, Mario is probably the most under developed character because all I know about him is that he likes to jump.. a lot.
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.
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.
Yup. We know nothing about her because Peach, Daisy, and Rosalina are all in the spotlight more.
She is Mario's mom and Jumpmans wife and she is a business woman.
The Sally Acorn of Mario
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)
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?
DUH! He's been in nothing other than Spinoffs and he's basically a poor man's version of Wario.
He actually has an eccentric personality. It's his background that needs more info.
@TwilightKitsune that was only for Super Mario Bros 2.
Anyways, yeah, I feel like Nintendo is slowly trying to get rid of Birdo.
Nintendo didn't even fully confirmed the gender, enough said.
DaisyandRosalina, Birdo is a male, but he thinks he is a female.
We know a lot about his background but can he just get a unique personality or something?
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.
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.
He's too cute to have more development.
Why do so many people on this site hate Rosalina so much?
I knew those Rosalina Haters would come here. Idiots.
Her and Daisy are superior to Peach
Uhm... she has an entire backstory, her personality is OK so are her abilities.
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?
Candy is a DK character not a Mario one
I don't hate her but she is not a Mario character but a DK one and this list is for Mario characters only
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.
That's only me? Anyone?
Have him not be a bastard child of Darth Vader and Godzilla for once.
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.
