10 Most Underrated Mario CharactersCelestius
The Top Ten
Mario is often labelled overrated just because he is the main character but he gets a lot of hate in the Mario fandom so calling him overrated makes no sense whatsoever. Luigi is the one who is overrated as he has fans who love him for the wrong reasons.
I don't understand why people treat Luigi as a god and treat Mario as a Satan. I love both of them equally. I cannot stand when people say Luigi is better than Mario. He is not better than Mario nor Mario is better than Luigi.
Why does everybody hate Mario so much? He started the whole series. And I can't stand it when people treat Luigi like the son of Jesus, and treat Mario like Satan. I like both of them but I like Mario a little bit more. So please people, don't treat Mario like he's a bad guy, causes he's not. It shows in Mario&Luigi Partners in Time that Mario has goodness in his heart. - nintendofan126
I don't understand this irrational hate around Mario nowadays. There is no concrete proof that Mario is bad and he mistreats Luigi. And all this victimization around Luigi's annoying too. I love Luigi much as I love Mario, but whole fandom treats him as a eternal Underdog and poor man, but he always have a whole year just for him, and a legion of fanatical fans. Then, How the hell he's always in Mario's shadow? In every corner of the Internet Luigi is put on a pedestal while Mario suffers bullying by fans. It's boring. - Palmeiras

She is underrated on this site. She almost gets as much hate as Justin Bieber and like him gets added on negative lists. I don't know why she gets a lot of hate. She is a good character. She's pretty, smart, sweet and deserves more. She can be helpful at times. Don't listen to the guy who says Peach is the worst character in gaming. He wouldn't let you state a positive opinion about Peach. He expects you to say she is annoying, aggressive, bossy, hates to win and complains a lot. She doesn't. He does and likes his own comments like a narcissist. He says she overrated when that's complete BS. He will come at this comment, just watch as this gets dislikes as he proves himself to you! Come at me, bro! Liking Peach is legal! You can't make us hate her!
I do not know why Peach is so hated by most people. Many people believe she's "whining" and "girly". She IS NOT whining. She IS NOT girly. She's only polite, pure and noble. If she "cries", there is a reason: she is always kidnapped by a monster from which she can not defend herself. The other princesses don't cry because they are never kidnapped by anyone. Then, of course blonde hair is better than reddish or whitish...
Her hate is so bs. She is not mean. She always invites Mario over even if nothing is wrong. She went to save Mimi and befriended her even when Mimi was rude to her. Peach refused to do nothing when he heard about Mario's friends problems and when Mario was captured.
She isn't useless she can glide I bet that helped a lot of people in SM3DW and I bet her healing came in handy in SMRPG. She also usually sends Mario items like 1up Mushrooms or information WHILE IN Bowser'S CUSTODY!
Ugly is a matter of opinion but no she is not she is gorgeous and beautiful! Peach is gorgeous and beautiful! Peach is gorgeous and beautiful! Peach is gorgeous and beautiful! (come at me haters)
Her voice it can always change it already did once it can change again. Her hair is blond so is Link's, Zelda's, Rosalina's, etc... Her outfits are pink hate me too than I wear it sometimes too. Be shallow and hate people for what color they like.
See all the hate for her is stupid! Peach ...more
A lot of people hate her because she has a repetitive role in all of the Mario games. I used to hate her too, but once you're able to look past her role she is actually kind and caring.V 13 Comments
"... The first thing to look at is the physical aspect, which reflects his dazed, stupid personality:she has an Emo-like look and a white skin like a sick goth."
Wow so your shallow? You judge her physical appearance. And all human Mario females have really white skin so I guess they all have that look like 'a sick goth. '
1st off: Rosalina is FEMALE
2nd: How is she stupid? She raised Luma's by herself, built a spaceship with a planet with the help of Luma's, knows a lot about the universe and how it all works so in that respect she's probably a lot smarter than you.
How is Rosalina Underrated? She is the best! And I don't see why people are so obssesed with comparing her to Peach, They look alike because Rosalina's original story was her being related to Peach but it was dropped. Rosalina is strong, independend and motherly and also Important, which gives her a higher rate than Peach and Daisy (especially Daisy, who is so irrelevant nowadays, even if I touch a nerve it still is the truth).
Why is she getting so much hate recently? Sure, she may be appearing in a lot of games, but it's not her fault. - RebelGamer
She is underrated on this site, but everywher else she's treated nicely - DrawboxV 27 Comments
Pauline is so underrated that she doesn't even score high for the underrated list.
It seems Pauline's popularity has gone down the drain to the point where she is unappreciated. I don't know who Pauline is but I have to say she was probably the most popular one of all until Nintendo decided to get rid of her. I wish they would bring her back. I mean Rosalina has got to go.
Pauline is one of the earliest characters in gaming, she should be more iconic but she's quite underappreciated.
No offense Pauline fans, but her not being popular is understandable. She doesn't do anything nor has any powers, has practically no personality, & only shows up 2 get kidnapped by DK. I don't hate her, but I don't care for her ether. Saying she's underrated is like saying those nameless people running around screaming when something bad happens in action movies/series are underrated. So she really shouldn't b on the list as there is nothing 2 appreciate her for (besides her looks which is shallow).V 7 Comments
Boo is to awesome! People just hate him because you can't kill him unless you have a star or the golden leaf, and he is a minion.
I loved boo since I was 6 and he needs more fans.
Yes, though kind of a balance of popular and underrated. - thelegendaries101V 1 Comment
In my eyes, Toad is (along with Daisy) the most underrated & over hated Mario character. Seriously, people are constantly raving on about how Luigi never gets any glory, when in reality, he's arguably MORE popular than his brother, has the largest fanbase of any Mario character, plus a well-received, prolific spin off series (in addition to already being the prominent deuteragonist of the main series) & had an entire YEAR in his honor (This is coming from someone who loves Luigi, but I'm not trash talking him or anything, just using him as an example to prove my point). Compare that to Toad, who gets negative to mixed reception among gamers, is constantly being relegated to a mere NPC or tutorial guide, had only one starring role, which was an obscure puzzle game with Wario's name in the title (Captain Toad doesn't count), & whenever he IS an active hero, like in SMB2 or 3D World, he's barely acknowledged & gets no gratification. & on top of all that, he's continuously going through ...more
Another question: why Toad is so hated? The majority of people says that Toad is annoying, unbearable, childish. In fact, people think the same thing about Peach, but this fact is not true for either of them. First, Toad is always compared to Mario, which has a lot of courage. So, everyone starts to think that Toad is a wimp, even if it is not at all, as shown in the Super Mario Bros. Series, where he coragiously attended with Mario and Luigi for rescuing Peach. Another criticism by much people is the voice, which is considered too annoying. According to me it is not at all. In fact, Toad is small, and this high-pitched voice is natural for a person of his size. I never imagined Toad with a large-man voice... Along with Bowser Jr., Toad is in my opinion one of the most cute characters of the serie though hated by the rest of the world.
I love toad he is cute and helpful - RockStarr
The only good toads r the blue & yellow ones, as they r the ones that went out to help Mario stop Bowser. Red spot toads however r useless jerksV 5 Comments
Yea this should be #1 Birdo whether he or she it shouldn't matter. She still sweet she helped make sure Peach's voice wasn't stolen and knows and stands up for herself. There's really no reason to hate Birdo just cause it could be a he instead of a she or whatever.
So much people hate birdo but why, because it's an undetermined gender? Well that doesn't make a character bad, does it? Anyways, you Birdo haters should go away. - HELLADERE120
Birdo should be top 1! I'm not kidding! I do appreciate Rosalina being top 1 because she is not that well-loved, but Princess Peach is overrated as hell!
She should be number one! Nobody likes her! - DaisyandRosalina
She is my favorite character in the whole franchise!
Together with Rosalina my favourite character in this whole entire game :
One of the greatest female characters in the game. - RockStarr
A cute farting girl who doesn't get enough attention by the fandom.V 5 Comments
Extremely Sissy Spoiled Brats like Wendy O Koopa deserve:
1. To get her Ass/Butt kicked by the Super Mario Bros.
2. To be Grounded for life by Bowser.
3. To be Spanked by Bowser.
4. To be Locked up in Prison by Princess Peach.
5. To strip Wendy of her Bling by Bowser and Super Mario Bros.
So what if she's bratty? She gets way more hate than Bowser Jr. who is really bratty too.
My 2nd favorite Koopaling (after Ludwig)
I'm upset that Trashalina and Bleach are scoring higher than her when they are overrated by far.V 1 Comment
Waluigi is THE most underappreciated Mario character. He's Nintendo's comic relief punching bag and he's a hilarious comic villain/antihero like Wario. Give him some respect, he's actually pretty smart, even though he always fails.
Why is Waluigi so hated? He's a very funny character and his mischiefs are amazing! - Nintendonix
I'm sorry but how is he on the list over Wario? This guy is only liked for his memes. Wario has actual reasons to be liked. - DCfnaf
He needs more respect, Godly in the mario sports games, can swim without using water - (Illuminati Confirmed,) He dabbed so hard that they had to give it to DK for safety reasons, #WaluigiNeedsHisOwnGameV 10 Comments
Koopa is an awesome turtle who looks a whole lot like yellow Yoshi.
Correction: It's actually the other way around. YELLOW YOSHI looks a lot like KOOPA. The turtle is older than yoshi.
Conversely, Daisy seems to be more loved by the people than Peach. And, why you do prefer a crazy, annoying person in relation to hers beautiful counterpart, I say?
First, let's start with her voice. Horrible. Shrill, but too much. She screams as a crazed when she is happy, when she is sad, when it's sunny and when there is rain. When she loses the challenges, she issues a cry equal to a four-year-old girl one. We'll speak then of her personality:so mad, so all too eager to meet new people. I don't know if you would like that a person will always follow you like a shadow, continuously annoying you.
And they call her personality "vivacious" and "cheerful". In my opinion, Daisy is neither vivacious nor cheerful, deserves to be locked in a madhouse. Third reason, they created Daisy only to find a "friend" to Peach. She also had originally the same physical appearance as Peach. That's why I hate Daisy. And I've said it all.
Princess Daisy is underrated! I can't believe people are saying that Princess Peach is the overrated one when critics gave her an unbelievably positive reception.
Princess Daisy is one of the most underrated Mario characters ever. Why you no believe me?! It's rude to say that Princess Peach is underrated and Princess Daisy is overrated.
She's overrated on the top tens but everywhere else she's underrated. - Randomteenager
Daisy deserves to be in more games than RosalinaV 14 Comments
He's the only piranha plant who got to be playable, and now he doesn't even get that. What the hell, Nintendo.
Epic boss abttles! Especially in super Marios unshine! - HeavyDonkeyKong
He's the man! well turtle
"First of all, Bowser Jr is over hated. Second of all, Koopalings are overrated compared to Rosalina. - DCfnaf"
Agree totally but I meant people hate Rosalina 'being in every game after Galaxy' but jr appears in every game after sunshine & no1 gives a rats@$$. And I mean jr is just a clone of baby bowser not a clone of himself xp
Nope overrated all he is is a bowser jr clone & yet he is more loved than bowser himself.
Also no one cares he came in at sunshine and has appeared in practally all games since while koopalings r left 2 b personalityless nobodies, but everyone throws a fit over Rosalina. what.
This makes me so happy that she is here because she's one of my favorite Mario characters. She's a boo, she's machivious, a brave and great leader, and is very strong & helpful in the game she was in. She's so awesome & wish she had more fans because she deserves itV 2 Comments
He is fairly underrated (this is coming from a Wario fan) but I understand why people don't like him. Personally I think he's an awesome antihero. - DCfnaf
Should definitely be on the list instead of Waluigi. That dude is only liked for his memes. - DCfnaf
He's hated because he's fat & because he farts. But he has more personality than 90% of Mario characters. He's basically has traits that are generally disliked but we ourself have: fat, likes to fart, likes odd food, picks noise, greedy, inconsiderate, self-centered, etc...
Dispite all this, he's very seccuessful & seems to have a verity of friends that differ in age and gender & personality.
He's even more interesting in comparison to Mario. Their friendship is questionable, as wario is the 'anti-mario'. But they seemed to have been fine with hanging out in 64(ds), and in one of the games in warioware there's a game where u have to make up with Mario. So it seemed at least before ml2 that they where on friendly terms.
All this makes him a very interesting character. But is overlooked because he's fat & ugly. How shallow 😐
Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars is severely underrated. So is Mallow. PSSparkxx DatHottneSS fails to see the positive aspects of Mallow even though he gets undeserved, overly harsh hate for hating Princess Daisy. Princess Daisy isn't a terrible character, but I wish she didn't get so much love for how Deanna Mustard makes her sound like a teenage hillbilly which does not match her at all and makes her unreasonably miscast.
Is he in Mario RPG?
He deserves to be in the spotlight. There's not enough merch of him! - CommanderLudwig
"What ar you talking about? How the hell does LARRY and ROY have personality? "
I'm saying none of the koopalings have personality not Ludwig or Larry or Roy or Wendy or any of the other koopalings they r all bland personalityless bosses
