Best Mario Villains Excluding Bowser

The best villains from the Mario franchise excluding the big koopa himself Bowser either from the main series or spin off series as long as its related to the Mario franchise its allowed on the list.

The Top Ten

1 Count Bleck (Super Paper Mario) Count Bleck, true name Lord Blumiere, is the central antagonist turned anti-hero of the 2007 Nintendo Wii videogame Super Paper Mario.

Count Bleck has a tragic story and has lost the only thing that he ever loved, and that turned him into the villain he is. He lied to his minions telling them that after destroying all worlds he would create perfect new ones for them but secretly he was going to just end all worlds and himself because he thought life was meaningless without his love.

Truly the best one, no explanation needed - darthvadern

2 Cackletta (Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga)

She's badass - darthvadern

3 Shadow Queen (Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door)

Holy hell was the Shadow Queen was creepy during your battle with her she actually devours the entire audience and nearly killed Sir Grodus the one who resurrected her in the first place. - egnomac


4 King Boo (Luigi's Mansion) King Boo is the leader of all the Boos, and the main antagonist in both Luigi's Mansion and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

Very scary (no pun intended) - darthvadern

Though Mario wasn't the hero of the game he was captured by King Boo and turned into a painting and it was up to Luigi to save him. - egnomac

Love its new design in DM

5 Donkey Kong (Donkey Kong Arcade) 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.

He did this because of Mario forcing Donkey Kong to do circus tricks in the game and watch game and he gets laughed at by Mario for getting burnt or dropping a fruit.

Before Bowser there was Donkey Kong who was Mario's first rival and villain although not actually evil he was a wild animal who kidnapped Pauline and it was Mario's job to rescue her all while he constantly hurled barrels and jacks at you he would also be the villain for the Mario vs Donkey Kong series. - egnomac

Good - darthvadern

6 Fawful (Mario & Luigi: Superstar saga) Fawful, known in Japan as Gerakobits, is a fictional character appearing in the Mario & Luigi series of role-playing video games developed by AlphaDream.

Why is he not # 1! He is the most comical video game villain ever made.

Cool, but very overrated, I don't find him to be that funny to be honest (although I smiled whenever he appeared on screen) - darthvadern

A pretty hilarious antagonist. - egnomac

7 Dooplis (Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door)

Main boss from the Twilight Town chapter of the game, he turned the people of the town into pigs by ringing the bells after beating him the first time takes over Mario's body leaving him a mere shadow and you have to go through this whole quest to get it back. - egnomac

8 Mr. L (Super Paper Mario)

A bainwashed luigi, enough said - darthvadern

9 Dimentio (Super Paper Mario) 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.

The Thanos of gaming.

Come to thin kabout it, Dimentio is very similar to Thanos, they both are mad men wanting to kill the universe, although Dimentio is even more brutal than Thanos, Thanos might have wanted to kill half of the population in the universe, but Dimentio went even further and wanted to destroy everything and create new worlds! I have a theory that Dimentio is Thanos is in a joker outfit and that the chaos heart is the infinity gauntlet on steroids - darthvadern

He sent Mario to hell. TO damn HELL.

He's quite the clever bastard, and his personality is absolutely amazing.

10 Smithy (Super Mario RPG)

The Contenders

11 Wario (Super Mario Land 2: Six Gold Coins)

Well, he's my second favourite mario character - darthvadern
