Mario Characters with the Most Tragic Backstory

Randomator
I figured it's time to get into the Halloween Spirit. Mario is normally not very dark but what if we turn the tables? Who has the darkest story? Also this is completely speculations that I have heard.

The Top Ten

1 Donkey Kong Jr Donkey Kong Jr

His father was mistreated and abused by Mario and this poor child Kong had to save his own father from that animal abuser!

He fought in a supposed "Great Ape War" and died. Thus why he has yet to appear again - Randomator

He was forced to rescue his father. - Gametheorysucks

If you think it was Mario who abused his father you're wrong it's actually Jumpman. - Randomator

2 Baby Wario Baby Wario

Wario was seen at the end of Yoshi's island arguing with baby Bowser and was never returned to his parents unlike the other babies. So Wario is technically an orphan - Randomator

I heard he didn't have a good childhood - ParkerFang

3 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 ...read more.

It's never revealed who Bowsers parents are or if they even exist. Some people speculate they died and he was raised to be evil by Kamek or something even creepier, created by Kamek himself... So either Bowser is an orphan or one of Kamek's creatures. - Randomator

4 The Koopalings The Koopalings

I heard a rumor that they might be created by Kamek - Gametheorysucks

Nintendo confirmed they are not Bowsers biological children. So some speculate they were adopted orphans. - Randomator

5 Baby Luigi Baby Luigi

Baby Luigi was kidnapped by Kamek from the stork. - Randomator

6 Baby Mario Baby Mario

Baby Mario was knocked down by Kamek colliding with the stork and he landed on Yoshi and had to go through the island to save Luigi - Randomator

7 Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. As his name implies, he is the son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

Bowser Jr. Has no confirmed mother and is not biologically related to the koopalings. It's speculated that his mother died when he was very young and Bowser even tries to hide the fact by telling him Peach was his mother in Mario Sunshine. - Randomator

8 Donkey Kong 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.

There's speculation that if Donkey Kong Jr was DK's father that he went to fight in a supposed "Great Ape War" and died when DK was very young. - Randomator

9 Wario 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.

I don't know about Wario himself having a tragic backstory. I think it's technically baby Wario. Correct me if I'm wrong - Randomator
