Top 10 Mario Characters with the Kindest Fanbases

There's tons of popular (and not so popular) Mario characters with diverse fanbases, but some tend to be more aggressive than others while others are much more passive. This is based on my observations but I believe these are the kindest or least conflictive of them.

The Top Ten

1 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.

Poor Birdo is perhaps the biggest underdog in the Mario franchise. Seriously! She's is targeted with hate (and sometimes transphobia) by so many but mainly picked on by Yoshi fans. Despite this her fans are very friendly people and I rarely see them lash out against Yoshi. - SweetBasil

They're definitely the ones who see the most positives out of all of them.

2 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.

Considering that he's the mascot and most important character it would be obvious that he'd have the cockiest fanbase. Strangely enough he doesn't, at least not relatively compared to other characters. I've seen that he's most commonly targeted by Luigi's. There are tons and tons of videos belittling the man or portraying him in a negative light. Nonetheless I don't see his fans acting immature very often. - SweetBasil

Poor Mario. It's sad how the Main character of his own GAME and Nintendo itself has been put down by Idiotic Luigi fans. All because of a certain God awful THEORY made by a horrible YouTuber who somehow slides under the MAT with this garbage theory that has tons of obvious flaws that people ignore. Mario deserves a PAT on the back for helping save the video game industry but unfortunately he has been treated worse than Satan and Hitler combined. Thanks MatPat

Even if the accusations were true he should still be treated with respect because like you said Luigi wouldn't exist without Mario. It's a double standard to criticize Mario but not Luigi when both of them do the same things, plus who do we see in Mario Kart give mean face to others? Luigi, and people find it funny, cute and they celebrate him. Yet if it were Mario giving mean faces they'd drag him all the way down lol. - SweetBasil

Fans can attack him all they want, he's the one with his name on the games. - cjWriter1997

His game fans are as terrible as Sonic's

3 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.

To be honest it's odd that he is one of the biggest icons in gaming and yet has a relatively pacifist fanbase. He probably has one of the most mature fanbases, but unlike Birdo I don't really see him getting picked on by anyone. - SweetBasil

I've seen them pick on Mario fans. But those people are Game Theory fans so... no surprise there

Very true. One of the most pacifist fanbases from what I have seen.

4 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 an anti-hero and has two series of his own. Although in the Mario series he's constantly grouped with Waluigi to mirror Mario & Luigi. So even though he's a rival to Mario himself I hardly see any clash between their fans. Waluigi on the other hand, is more infamous and constantly pitted against several other characters. - SweetBasil

Hated by stupid Waluigi fans because he's fat even though he's the reason Why Waluigi even exists in the first place. Logic my friends. Waluigi fans have none

I always see people calling him fat or ugly. I didn't know Waluigi fans hated him though, maybe they have the same complex that Luigi fans have. - SweetBasil

5 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.

Pauline is the first female in the Mario franchise but she's mostly been obscure, appearing in far fewer games compared to the other girls. Despite this Peach fans, and recently Daisy fans, tend to pick on her a lot. However she has a very calm and growing fanbase. - SweetBasil

I'm curious to see what happens to Pauline after Mario Odyssey. Maybe she will be used more often - Randomator

Her fans constantly bash other females

Her fans don’t attack other fanbases, the other fanbases attack her. Retaliation is not the same as attacking.

6 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.

Toad is one of the most recognizable Mario characters and usually labeled as one of the "cutest" usually pitted against Yoshi. However unlike the dinosaur his fanbase seems far less aggressive. - SweetBasil

7 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 see the Bowser fanbase more focused on shipping him with other characters than I do on fanwars against other characters. For a villain he sure has a neutral fanbase. Weird. - SweetBasil

From what I've seen most Bowser fans tend to spend their time speculating about him not being a villain or having a tragic background. I have not seen any arguments involving Bowser fans - Randomator

8 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.

What is it with villains having a far better behaving fanbase? He is Luigi's antagonist but their fanbases are reversed in behavior it seems. Luigi easily has one of the most aggressive fanbases I've seen in the Mario series, on the contrary King Boo's is quiet. - SweetBasil

9 Honey Queen

She's kind of faded away but I remember she used to get picked on a lot. She has a small fanbase but they're rather sweet like honey. - SweetBasil

10 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.

He might have a half of the fanbase which is annoying, but that is 20%, but 70% of the fanbase is also friendly, they might as well defend the fact Waluigi barely being used, but at least they don't rage and also at least they don't blame Rosalina for Waluigi barely being used.

The Contenders

11 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.

He's made his mark in the Mario series as one of the more remarkable villains but he's doesn't appear very often so the discussion about him is usually about how cool or memorable he is. He isn't compared against other characters often or picked on by other fanbases. - SweetBasil

12 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.

I'm sure that he was formerly 5th place on the most annoying character list and now he's 9th! He's not annoying! He's very cute!

Not his fault that the koopalings suck

I don't understand why they hate him, they're all in smash because of him. Of course there was a time where they were dropped but there's a large gap between them being dropped and Bowser jr being created. - SweetBasil

From what I have seen, Bowser Jr. fans aren't as aggressive as Koopaling fans. I wonder why. Hmm...

13 Koopa Troopa Koopa Troopas, or just simply Koopas, known in Japan as Nokonoko, are a fictional race of turtle or tortoise-like creatures from the Mario series, as well as its sister Yoshi series.

Although he has a small fanbase they are very neutral - Randomator

14 Shy Guy

A quietly growing fanbase that spends most of the time using him in Mario kart or other spinoff games. I've never seen any arguments. They typically agree that he's overrated in Mario kart - Randomator

15 Dry Bowser Dry Bowser is the fossilized version of the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise, Bowser. He first appeared in New Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo DS after Bowser had been dumped into the lava and was left with his skeleton. Since then, Dry Bowser has appeared as a villain in games like Super more.

Most people I know who like him are genuinely nice and friendly.

16 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.
17 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.
18 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.
