Top Ten Mario Enemies

The Top Ten

1 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.

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

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!

If you don't think bowser is more powerful than Mario, you'd better go see a doctor immediately.

I have no words for how a Hammer Bro. Is better than Bowser!

2 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

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

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

Strongest Mario enemy

3 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.

I really don't know why. I love dry bones.

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

Dry bones is just so awesome!

4 Boo

All these enemies look cartoony and fun, but nothing even compares to the Boo, the cutest Mario character by far. I also like how Boos behave, only coming towards Mario when he's facing away from the little ghosts, and covering their faces when Mario turns toward them. Adorable!

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

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.

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!

6 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.

He's my favourite Mario enemy. He's cool cute and awesome tied with hammer bro kamek lakitu dry bones and paratroopa. He should be no1. And I wish there are more super koopa games. Not just a koopa's revenge.

This guy, aside from being cute, tends to take Mario's side whenever he can. I mean, once he's stomped on, he's a KILLER WEAPON.

7 Chain Chomp

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

They are also iconic - darthvadern

8 Shy Guy

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 FOR THE WIN!

Yeah toast. That's my favourite quote from the smg4 series. He loves toast so much and his face moves in Mario strikers charged football

They are shy and mysterious, you never know that kind of thoughts they may have. Plus they are adorable.

Shy Guy is my favorite Mario character I love hi design

9 Fire Bros.

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

Pretty cool - darthvadern

10 Piranha Plant

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.

They both awesome! I had a hard time deciding between them

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

The Contenders

11 Lakitu Lakitu, known in Japan as Jugem, is a fictional flying character in the Mario franchise. Created by Shigeru Miyamoto, it first appeared in the Nintendo Entertainment System video game Super Mario Bros., where it dropped enemies called Spinies on the stage.

A Koopa in a cloud, what not to love?

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

So annoying - darthvadern

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.

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

Bowser jr is such a beast. he's definitely a reflection of his boss father.

He is the best
what not to love

13 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 ...read more.

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

I mean seriously he is scary

Boss character - darthvadern

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

14 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

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

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

15 Lemmy Koopa The youngest of the seven original children of the Koopa King. Lemmy has always been fascinated by the circus and acrobatic acts and so he's made it his life's calling. Lemmy dreams of showing the world his incredible physical feats and never passes up a chance to gain a captive audience. Though he ...read more.

My smash main

he's cute

So cute

Boss - darthvadern

16 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

Somebody cheated

FAT!

Not an enemy - darthvadern

17 Bob-omb Bob-ombs are a species found throughout the Mario series. They are small bomb-shaped beings who can create explosions by detonating themselves or being detonated.

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.

Decent in my opinion - darthvadern

18 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 ...read more.

Also..., BOSS - darthvadern

19 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 ...read 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

I like them - darthvadern

21 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 ...read more.

You're looking for Magikoopa - darthvadern

22 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 ...read 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

I love blooper also! Because I like squids!

UGH! I got inked!

23 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.

24 Wendy O Koopa Wendy O. Koopa is a female villain in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She is the only female member of the Koopalings and can usually be found assisting Bowser and Bowser Jr . on their wicked plans with the rest of the Koopalings .

27 Petey Piranha

He is the strongest of the piranha plant and he survived the wiggler genocide with all the other piranha plants. - lemur

Petey piranha is so powerful in mario party and cute with his diaper

Because he or she is very very hard to beat

He should be much higher on this list.

28 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 ...read more.

Boss - darthvadern

29 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.

30 Spike

Spikes are decent but annoying - darthvadern

Fishy boopkins!

31 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 ...read more.

My favorite character in the whole Mario series

Waluigi number one!

Should be in Smash Ultimate

He is just so awesomeness

32 Bullet Bill

Bullet bills are awesome enemies in the Mario series

These guys are annoying in super Mario galaxy

Also very iconic enemies - darthvadern

Paragoombas are generic - darthvadern

34 Dino-Torch

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

35 Dimentio Dimentio is an evil harlequin magician and the main antagonist of the 2007 Nintendo Wii video game known as "Super Paper Mario". One of his notable features is that he has created his own Dimension, known as Dimension D.

This Enemy has one of the Best Plot-Twist of the Mario Games, has a incredible desigh and is a INCREDIBLE BOSS!

WHY 0.2%?

He's a boss - darthvadern

36 Pokey

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

49 Hector the Reflector

Hector the reflector has to be number 1! He is the best Mario boss ever! He is my favorite Mario character ever!

Hector the reflector should be number 1 because he is invisible, he is a hard boss, and he looks awesome!

Hector the reflector is the best Mario boss ever!

This guy should go to the top!
