Top 10 Mario Characters with the Kindest FanbasesSweetBasil 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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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.
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
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...
Although he has a small fanbase they are very neutral - Randomator
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
Most people I know who like him are genuinely nice and friendly.
