Top Ten Mario Enemies

The Top Ten

1 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 more.

Bowser's a very well-written, powerful, and almighty character. Ruler of the Koopa Kingdom and controls the armies, capturer of Peach, and always the main antagonist of Mario games, this guy is a pretty big deal. - Mario_Deluxe

He's actually a boss but ok - darthvadern

I like goomba better - Pokemonfan10

Bowser's the main villain.

2 Goomba Goomba Goombas, known in Japan as Kuribo, are a species of sentient mushrooms from Nintendo's Mario franchise.

They are the brave, unspoken, soldiers that face the beast that can defeat there King.

And they look cool

Very iconic - darthvadern

Goombas (AKA walking emoji poos) are so stupid which makes them so adorable

Goomba is not useless - Villainnumberone

3 Dry Bones Dry Bones Dry Bones is a common enemy species in the Super Mario series of video games since „Super Mario Bros. 3“ (1988). After his first debut as a playable character in „Mario Superstar Baseball“ (2005), he became a fan-favorite and also got playable in other spin-offs of the Mario series.

Dry Boens is overrated - darthvadern

Such a simple but clever idea Dry Bones was! If you don't love it, you have absolutely no life.

Dry bone the best!

Favorite mario villan

4 Boo

Annoying - darthvadern

Boo is my Favorite Mario Character, he should be playable and have more games like Mario Golf World Tour and Super Boo Bros.

Boo is an adorable and cute little ghost. Boo will have his own games soon and Shy guy is awesome too but I like Boo more

Boo rules! He number 1 on the list and if their was a most adorable Mario enemies list he would be 1.

5 Hammer Bros.

I actually hate Hammer Bros. They throw hammers, anytime I play Mario Maker I always die at least once to these guys, and trying to do parkour while these guys throw hammers is true Hell. - Mario_Deluxe

Pretty good - darthvadern

Unlike most enemies, you have to be scared when you see a Hammer Bro./Fire Bro./Ice Bro. I would pick Bowser, but I classify him as a boss, not an enemy.

No way,they're the worst. - Villainnumberone

6 Koopa Troopa 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.

Very iconic for sure - darthvadern

It's interesting how many versions have been made of him, and the only one better than him is DRY BONES!

@Pokemonfan10, yeah, he should, but still he should be lower than Dry Bones.

Should be higher in my opinion - Pokemonfan10

7 Chain Chomp Chain Chomp

They are also iconic - darthvadern

I don't know why, but I really like chain chomps.

Here's a little history. Chain Chomps are inspired by a childhood memory by Shigeru Miyamoto. He saw a dog that tried to attack him, but it was chained up. Look at these giant guys. BARK! BARK!

Ruff ruff! Ruff ruff! See. He's not annoying but he does make dog bark.

8 Shy Guy Shy Guy

They are overrated honestly - darthvadern

He is so cute I just love him so much he is toatatlly adorable he is fun funny cute and just the best chose


Shy guy is not a shy guy (nicobbq video) - Villainnumberone

Hey hoo!
aka/shy guy's the best!

9 Fire Bros.

Pretty cool - darthvadern

This character is so generic why is he even on this list

10 Piranha Plant Piranha Plant

Also an icon - darthvadern

What he should be higher him and dry bones are my favorite

Bob the piranha plant. - Villainnumberone

Guess Hoos In Smash



The Newcomers

? Roy Koopa Roy Koopa Roy Koopa is one of the seven Koopalings. In the DIC cartoons Roy is called Bully Koopa. Roy has a tough guy demeanor, but wears pink which is most likely a reference to real men wear pink. Roy also wears hot pink sunglasses and from an angle it looks like he has no eyes.
? King Koopa King Koopa 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.

The Contenders

11 Lakitu Lakitu

So annoying - darthvadern

Look at that face, who could say no to him?

A Koopa in a cloud, what not to love?

12 Bowser Jr

Also a boss - darthvadern

He is the best
what not to love

He may look cute, but he's smarter than his father. Make fun of Bowser Jr and he'll build a machine to smash your face in.

He makes the game more fun
don't you argee?

13 Dry Bowser 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.

Boss character - darthvadern

He shoots blue fire, is fire resistant, and is basically immortal. Why not

I mean seriously he is scary

He's so good looking like a better versaing of Bowser

14 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.

Nowadays more of an anti-hero

Not an enemy - darthvadern

Somebody cheated


15 Wiggler Wiggler

Wiggler is adorable we need him in more games WIGGLER! WIGGLER!

To add onto what the wiggler does... he has recently destroyed the city that 100 million people live in and he only let the piranha plants live because the plants are almost as strong as the wiggler - lemur

One of my favourites - darthvadern

Wiggler is a god. We will eat the faces alive of anybody who opposes him. He went onto mario kart becuase if he didn't go onto it he will eat all mario characters and vaporize the whole mushroom kingdom. He will reign supreme won day and destroy mario and bowsers army. He keeps the bodys of the billions he killed in his vault of power

16 Bob-omb Bob-omb

Decent in my opinion - darthvadern

I don't think he should be #1 I'm saying if there was a list on the most adorable Mario enemies ever he would be #1. But I do think he should be at least #10 or 12

If you ever played NSMBW and save peach 10 times, try putting a lot of Bob-ombs there cause if you make them explode. The game will be loud.

I think he should be playable in some other games like Boo.

17 Lemmy Koopa

Boss - darthvadern

My smash main

he's cute

What the hell! ludwig is number 3 after Bowser and Bowser jr.

18 Kamek Kamek Kamek is a common enemy in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He usually appears in New Super Mario Bros. Games, Super Mario Bros. Games, or other similar games. He also appears in spinoff titles, like Mario Party, in which he is not a playable character but creates an obstacle for the players on their way more.

You're looking for Magikoopa - darthvadern

19 Ludwig von Koopa Ludwig von Koopa Ludwig Von Koopa is a villain in the Super Mario Franchise. He is the self-proclaimed leader of the Koopalings and has a pompous and arrogant personality. He is said to have all the powers of the other six Koopalings. He can clone himself, cause earthquakes, teleport, and shoot lightning bolts from more.

Also..., BOSS - darthvadern

20 Koopa Paratroopas

I like them - darthvadern

He's cooler than koopa troopa because he has a red shell and shoes and wings. Yes he's a clone of koopa but they team up in Mario power tennis and Mario kart double dash

21 Thwomp

They are creepy - darthvadern

This enemy is better than Whomp. If Thwomps & Whomps were in a death battle, the Thwomps would probably win. All the Whomps do is walk & land on their faces, while Thwomps can smash right on the ground. Hey, Screw Attack! Please have a Thwomp & a Whomp fight each other in Death Battle.

22 Blooper Blooper Bloopers (Often Referred To Bloobers Until Paper Mario, Though Blooper was in use beforehand) are Squid-Like creatures that are found in the ocean. They made their first appearance in Super Mario Bros., and various kinds of them have appeared in the Mario games since, normally as enemies. Mario Party more.

These suck - darthvadern

Blooper needs a brother: Boo! Blooper is a squid (squid are awesome) Blooper is white, just like Boo. And Blooper can fly, just like Boo. See what I mean?

Blooper is the best. He's adorable. We don't even know if he's a villain. He just likes to follow the guys around... - InklingSethO

I love blooper also! Because I like squids!

27 Birdo 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.

Boss - darthvadern

28 King Boo 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.

Also another boss - darthvadern

Just like boo. But he is bigger and he has a crown, king boo is awesome just like him. I hate peach. But king boo is one of the best Mario characters ever!

A Big Boo with a Crown and Boo minions, How Cool Is That!?

He looks way cooler in Luigi's Mansion than spin-off. - thelegendaries101

29 Spike

Spikes are decent but annoying - darthvadern

Fishy boopkins!

30 Paragoomba

Paragoombas are generic - darthvadern

31 Waluigi 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.

Not an enemy - darthvadern

33 Rawk Hawk

Boss character and not a bad guy in the slightest - darthvadern

Take it off the list right now. This is also dumb

34 Sonic

Not mario character - darthvadern

Ree sonic get out

Take it off the list. He's not a Mario enemy. You guys are dumb. He's the main character of sonic the hedgehog not a Mario character

35 Dino-Torch

Irrelevant - darthvadern

He is cute and he breathes fire because you hit him. Vote him up please.

36 Pokey

These suck as well - darthvadern

Pokey is the smiling cactus that lives in the desert and is made of spiky "segments" though not many people know his name. His biggest weakness is he can be eaten segment by segment by Yoshi.

Get off Pokey, haters! What did he ever do to you?

This guy not from any Mario game
