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.

I like goomba better - Pokemonfan10

Bowser's the main villain.

Mario is the main anatonigist actully

Listen up everybody, Bowser is the greatest character of ALL TIME! He breathes fire, he's powerful and he's all around epic! Bowser is 9 million times better than Mario! No wait, a kazillion times better!

2 Hammer Bros.

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

I wondered what Bowser was a head for, so I voted this. Hammer bro is so rad!

Hammer bros. are cool looking. The best part they throw hammers!

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.

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

My favorite character in all of the mario kart games and my favorite sprite in the normal games. Latiku makes a close second, though...

Goomba is not useless - Villainnumberone

This is the ones you like right? If it's top ten worst it's Lakitu.

5 Boo

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.

He is a small, cute, cuddly, and lovable ghost. If I saw a boo I would hug it.

6 Chain Chomp Chain Chomp

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.

Cute and cool love him

7 Fire Bros.

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

8 Bowser Jr

He is the best
what not to love

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

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 is a pretty good semi villain and helps Bowser steal peach every time

9 Wiggler Wiggler

He gets mad when you stomp on him. I mean wouldn't you be pissed if someone stepped on you?

Still love the flutter variant - Retroman64

Wiggler is awesome!

Haha Why is this even on here?! - llamabaconllama37

10 Lemmy Koopa

My smash main

he's cute

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

The Contenders

11 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.

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

He is so cute.

12 Lakitu Lakitu

A Koopa in a cloud, what not to love?

13 Shy Guy Shy Guy

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

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

He is cute

go shy guy - -Pikachu-

14 Piranha Plant Piranha Plant

Bob the piranha plant. - Villainnumberone

The fact that this mook got into Smash Ultimate before Waluigi makes this guy even more memorable.

Ellie the Elephant is my 6th favorite Mario character but she is not an enemy but piranha plant's defeat is cute

Behold! The vicious man eating plant in all of the Mushroom Kingdom.

15 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.

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

The main boss 2 I think se is second only to bowser

16 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.

Somebody cheated


17 Bob-omb Bob-omb

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.

BOOM! That's right. These high explosives can blow up right in Mario's face. However, not all of the Bob-ombs are bad. There are Bob-omb buddies, which are friendly Bob-ombs.

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.
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.


20 Koopa Paratroopas

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

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 Wendy O Koopa

How is she here

23 Boomerang Bros.
24 Petey Piranha Petey Piranha

Because he or she is very very hard to beat

He should be much higher on this list.

25 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.

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

A big handsome Boo. Boo fans must love this guy.

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.

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

Waluigi first appeared in the Gameboy Color game, Mario Tennis as Wario's partner. He has appeared in every Mario Tennis game since, still remaining as Wario's partner. more.

30 Rawk Hawk

33 Bullet Bill Bullet Bill
