10 Most Underrated Mario Characters

The Top Ten

1 Princess Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is the lead female of the The Mario franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario ...read more.

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!

Getting kidnapped doesn't automatically make her stupid. In fact considering in at least a couple games she sends letters to Mario she's actually trying to help. Her time spent kidnapped isn't 100% sitting on her butt. - SourChocolate

This girl deserves to be number one on this list. Trust me, I used to hate Peach for some reason but now I actually enjoy playing as her. Those stupid haters don't have any good reasons for why Peach is terrible. At least she tries to help Mario when she's not kidnapped and has a variety of attacks. Plus, how do you not like her design? I honestly love it lol. - RosalinaX

What's interesting is that she still sends small gifts WHEN kidnapped in some games. Despite her Princess look, for some reason I don't view her as a Princess (weird, I know). - Qryzx

Daisy is richer than Peach but Peach is still wealthy she has a kingdom and a beach.

How is Daisy richer than Peach? A cruise ship and a giant desert kingdom filled with nothing but enemies is not worth more than an entire kingdom that actually has normal people living there and a beach. - LittleAwesomeApple

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

Peach's portrayal in Super Paper Mario was good. Unfortunately, she's just a helpless damsel in distress in the majority of her games, and we tend to get tired of that. - Treacle

2 Mario Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super ...read more.

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

Mario is my favorite video game icon in fact I started liking him again since I was fifteen back in 1997 and back in Christmas 1997 I got super Mario 64 with the Nintendo 64 and a Mario bean bag plushy and it's very sad about captain lou albano and danny welles from the super Mario bros super show and I believe there should be a reboot of it called the super Mario show and it would hosted by charles martainet who does Mario's voice in the Mario games and it would be based on all the Mario games and popular movies like superman lord of the rings Jurassic park and an episode called king Mario the legend of the plunger and the episode that can be based on the superman movies can be called the steel man the episode that be based on the movies of lord of the rings can be called lord of the coins and the episode that be based on Jurassic park can be called Jurassic bowser and other episodes about when they go on some adventures like Mario's time machine mad toad the crystal koopa an episode ...more

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

3 Pauline Pauline, also known as Daniella Verducci, is the original damsel-in-distress whom Mario must rescue from the eponymous ape in the original Donkey Kong.

She would make a better damsel than Peach. Considering Nintendo wants to depict Peach as strong they should show Peach being more independent, but still kidnapped on occasion. I find this to be better than leaving yet another character in spinoffs or only letting them be playable once and letting a missed opportunity for the other slide. - FantaComplex

Pauline definitely doesn't get as much respect as she deserves. I think we can all agree that from Pauline's games, she deserves more then she gets. Her voice is amazing, as seen in Super Mario Odyssey for the Switch. She has went through Hell, with Donkey Kong capturing her left and right, and if you make the excuse that she can fight back, this woman can not fight an 8 foot hairy gorilla. - Mario_Deluxe

Pauline is so underrated that she doesn't even score high for the underrated list.

It took her nearly 40 years for her to finally become playable. Meanwhile characters like Cat Peach are added right away. I can't think of a character more underrated than Pauline.

4 Toad Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a major character in the Mario Bros. franchise. He assists Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom and will do whatever it takes to help her. He first appeared in the classic game, Super Mario Bros. after being kidnapped by Bowser and his minions. Since then he has ...read more.

By Nintendo standards, Toad is incredibly underrated. And when it comes to the community, nobody likes him whatsoever. (On this website he's heavily hated because of a mis-blame; he doesn't appear in Super Mario Bros, those were other Toads/Mushroom Retainers.)

As the top user has stated, people often cry about Luigi getting no glory when he got a year to himself. Toad on the other hand had one game... which was a puzzle game (redundant) that didn't even have his name (instead Wario's) in the title.

Toad is always given a small role in games, he's never playable and if he is then it's reduced to either a sidekick or a minor character that can only be played in one portion of the game (4x100m Rally in Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games for example). In the Mario Kart franchise he's often the small, weak character (that only succeeds in acceleration) that can't do much and isn't a main to any player.

Nintendo treats the character like he's some sort of chew ...more - KennyRulz244444

Toad might just be the most hated Mario character in the entire franchise. People say his voice is supremely annoying (Daisy and Peach's are just a little less), is one hundred percent useless (he might be more useless than Princess Peach), is used in far too many Mario games (he really is), and his purpose is the voice for a tutorial. I absolutely love him though, so eat it. - MasterBeef

He's the one player character from Mario 2 that is STILL not in Smash Bros except as one of Peach's (and now Daisy as well) attacks and a Mii costume.

And they said Luigi was underrated. This guy deserves a year to himself, Nintendo. He has been a staple character in the Mario franchise since Super Mario Bros back in 1985 and this guy still gets no recognition.Even though he's a normal citizen who does regular things on a daily basis, he still tries to help Mario save Princess Peach. Does anyone even remember New Super Mario Bros Wii or something? This guy is awesome and haters have to back off because they have no reason to hate. - RosalinaX

5 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.

Why is he considered overrated? He deserves to be on this list. Those stupid krapalings have no personality compared to this guy. - RosalinaX

He's the man! well turtle

i LOVE him

Not really - darthvadern

6 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.

Birdo is underrated. She/he is very mysterious when it comes to gender and is actually a pretty solid character. It could star in its own game if Nintendo wanted to give it one.

Birdo is the 2nd most underrated Mario character (First is Waluigi). Birdo was only in a few main games and Birdo also is not in smash and doesn't have his own game along with Waluigi. - MarioMaster101

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

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.

7 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.

Underrated by the fanbase? Absolutely not. Underrated by Nintendo? Totally. - MaxPap

Never got his own game, not in the main games except dance dance revolution Mario mix, and isn't in smash. Yeah, Nintendo treats him like crap. - MarioMaster101

Waluigi is basically the face of underrated video game characters. Yet he's only number 5. Sure

Screw all of you Waluigi haters. If you hate Waluigi then you should die. Seriously he is the most underrated character. He should be higher than Rosalina and Toad. They are Overrated. People hate him for the wrong reasons.
1) He doesn't have his own game.
So what? Toad doesn't have his own game. ( captain toad doesn't count) People love him.
2) He has no personality.
Explain your definition of personality. Because Waluigi has picked up a funny personality.
3) He's Unoriginal.
Bowser Jr is unoriginal and yet people still love him to the point of hating the koopalings. And anyways he's not even close to being as unoriginal as Pink Gold Peach.
4) He was only created as a partner for Wario.
Yeah but that's still better than why they created baby daisy or baby rosalina or pink gold peach.

All of this is NINTENDO'S fault not Waluigi's. They should make a Waluigi pinball game.

I agree but please do not send death threats. You are making the fanbase look bad. - LittleAwesomeApple

8 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.

Even though I hate Daisy, it is a bit strange how a generic Koopaling is more underrated than her. - LittleAwesomeApple

People throw a fit at pink gold peach sucks
Those 7 are even worse

Oh boy, a new Mario game, oh no those dumbbutt idiots we love hating gosh

In mario bros and friends: when I grow up Ludwig von koopa is cute!

9 Princess Daisy Princess Daisy is a fictional character in the Mario series of video games, in which she is the princess of the fictional region of Sarasaland. ...read more.

She should be a main character she is interesting being a tomboy and she has a lot of energy and spirit and she is Peach's best friend a d Luigi's love interest. She needs to be put in main games again and interact with Luigi and the other main cast.

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.

1. She was created for a main series game, Super Mario Land, so calm your balls down.

2. She is not annoying, she is cheerful and outgoing. You literally can't take a person's personality when it's different from all the other characters, can't you?

3. Okay, she has the same appearance as Daisy. No she doesn't. Just because she has the same dress doesn't make her the same as Peach. Not only that, but you said originally she had the same appearance as Daisy. First of all, she doesn't have that old design anymore and Second, her old design was far more diverse then Peach's: She had tanner skin, Dark Brown hair, and a Red crown instead of gold. So, you are literally just acting out on a dress. - RosalinaX

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

10 Mallow

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?

The Contenders

11 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 . She first appeared in Super Mario Bros . 3 in 1988 and since then has been ...read more.

This list proves that Wendy is underrated.
"Extremely Sissy Spoiled Brats like Wendy O Koopa deserve:
1. To get her Ass/Butt kicked by the Super Mario Bros."
Stop being an immature Wendy hater, Peach fan. - RosalinaX

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.

To be honest, having a bratty personality is way better than having no personality at all, you got to admit. Wendy is supposed to be spoiled, that's why she wears expensive jewelry. - Qryzx

Stop hating on her! Let me just say, I don't really like her either, but you guys should see that she has a very unique personality. She's stylish, bratty, and the only female koopa out of all the koopalings. Why can't you at least respect that? - RosalinaX

12 Boo

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. - thelegendaries101

Well I guess so - darthvadern

No boo is cute - AnimeSucksAzz969x

13 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.

Wario is awesome. Should be in the top 10.
Awesome games, great personality, and is fun to use in Smash.
Screw Waluigi, Wario is much better.

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

People hate him because he's fat and ugly. How shallow.

Wario games > Mario games

14 Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She first appeared in the popular Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 for the Nintendo Wii and later returned for the game's sequel in 2010 . Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games ...read more.

Holy crap. Look at HOW MANY people hate Rosalina lately. JUST LOOK IT UP. She gets SO MUCH HATE for THREE REASONS.

1. She looks sexually attractive.

Oh sorry, I mean her EMO hair...I have seen SO MANY PEOPLE call her a hentai because of it. It's a DESIGN OF HER HAIR AND DRESS. It has NOTHING to do with her character. I will bet all the money I have that if Rosalina didn't have emo hair and looked similar to Peach and Daisy, she would get less hate.

2. She replaced Daisy in Super Smash Bros 4

Two words. BULL CRAP. I have seen SO MANY DAISY FANS hate Rosalina because she's "taking the spotlight from Daisy". DAISY BARELY APPEARED IN ANYTHING BEFORE ROSALINA EXISTED. Also, you hate a fictional character because you wanted the other fictional character to get into a game? Yeah it's ridiculous.

3. She's appearing in more games.

Yes. You read that right. Because she's APPEARING IN MORE GAMES, SHE'S HATED. WHAT'S WRONG WITH HAVING A CHARACTER APPEAR ...more - DCfnaf

I still can't believe so many people hate her. Like, seriously, Daisy and Peach fans have to STOP. Haters hate her for the dumbest of reasons such as her design and the fact that she appeared in a lot of games, but that's just absolutely stupid. People literally can't take a new hairstyle and character design these days. - RosalinaX

"... 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).

15 Petey Piranha

He's the only piranha plant who got to be playable, and now he doesn't even get that. What the hell, Nintendo.

One of the best bosses made for Mario, and doesn't get to be playable anymore. What a shame.

The funniest thing the Mario franchise ever created, creating a frightening creature into a hilarious one is a brilliant feat - Enmanu16

He makes up for great boss a lot - darthvadern

16 Dr. Mario Dr. Mario is the persona Mario takes in the Dr. Mario series. Under this identity, Mario dons a lab coat, a head mirror, and a stethoscope around his neck. He first appeared in his titular game, Dr. Mario.

Um it's Mario - darthvadern

17 Cackletta

Best Female Villain Ever.

Fawful gets all attention - darthvadern

Cackletta plus Fawful equals awesomeness.

Don't trust Videogamefan5. I really like him, but I felt like I had no choice but to dislike the comments that show that he hates Cackletta.

18 Lady Bow

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 it

Who?

The baddest bitch since Princess Peach

19 Wart
20 Toadette Toadette is a character in the Mario series. She is a female Toad who first appeared in the Nintendo GameCube video game Mario Kart: Double Dash.

One of the greatest female characters in the game. - RockStarr

She is my favorite character in the whole franchise!

Together with Rosalina my favourite character in this whole entire game :

The best female character in the series after Rosalina. - RosalinaX

21 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.

My favorite Mario character, but very underrated. It seems like nobody, not even Nintendo, cares about him.

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.

One of my mains in spin-offs - darthvadern

22 Tatanga Tatanga is a villain from the Mario Bros. Franchise. He is known as Princess Daisy's arch nemesis as he has targeted her on kidnapping missions. His only appearance was in the 1989 game, Super Mario Land, in which he kidnapped Princess Daisy and was the main villain of the game against Mario.

Somehow I wish they would bring him back. - TopiTaupe

I guess so - darthvadern

23 Penguin Coach

Yeah, because nobody really remembers him. But he was the penguin coach from super mario galaxy. - MarioMaster101

This is the guy from Super Mario Galaxy, right?

Nothing too special - darthvadern

24 Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. He is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi and Mario franchises.

Well lets just put it this way! He is underrated on YouTube if you know what I mean!

Can we actually have some underrated Mario characters!
(though Yoshi is the best Mario character)

Someone actually thinks Yoshi is underrated. You HAVE to be joking.

Yoshi may be 1st, still isn't high enough. Gotta get to that sweet 0.9!

25 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 bones is the best mario kart character and mario character in general.

I seriously love dry bones. He's the only character that I use in Mario kart wii. People only hate him because of how annoying he can be in castle levels in Super Mario brothers. You stomp on him and then comes back to life in a few seconds.

Dry bones needs more credit. He's only in castle levels and spin off titles. He was going to be in Mario kart 8 but was replaced by pink gold peach.

He is quite overrated and gets a pass while being a clone - darthvadern

26 Mona

Unfortunately, the only character from WarioWare that gets any attention from Nintendo or the fans is Ashley.

Alright. I need to set something straight here. Where is Mona is SSB? They have Ashley, yeah, but where's the lovable ginger who, has a range of talents. If she can play bass, cheer-lead like crazy, be a super cute photographer and can explore other places, why not include her in other games? I quite like Ashley, but damn she's overrated!

That's because Mona is a dumb@$$ Mary Sue fanserviced garbage & why people only care for her is because her obsession with wario that if she had any brain she wouldn't have. She shouldn't have any fans, and deserves to be thrown in lava & forever forgotten.

That's a Wario character - darthvadern

The WarioWare series is a spinoff of the main series and because it's part of the Mario franchise; it's considered a Mario character, since Mona is a character by Nintendo and Nintendo also made Mario. - starryrcad

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

Everyone and their mom knows about Goomba. He's not underrated, get ahold of yourself. - Mario_Deluxe

He should get more credit for all he has done in the Mario games. It's not his fault he doesn't have hands.

He has killed Mario more times than other enemies.

No, he's not underrated in the slightest - darthvadern

28 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.

Not at all underrated. No chance. - Mario_Deluxe

He is awesome! My favorite boss fight was in "New Super Mario Bros U" because he had tons of attacks. I want him to be in more Mario games.

Dude,Bowser is in almost every Mario game dumbass.

He's known - darthvadern

29 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.

Ugh. Cat Peach, Gold Peach, Metal Mario, even BABIES get into Mario Kart but they can't even add original characters like Kamek. So sad. - RosalinaX

He's the true mastermind behind everything. Without him, no Bowser - darthvadern

I don't feel he gets enough attention. He makes for a good villain, always showing up to cause trouble. Sure, he's annoying, but he's supposed to be. He's a bad guy! I especially like him in Dream Team, where he flat-out crossdresses throughout an ENTIRE LEVEL. - Garythesnail

The attack of the Playstation buttons - shawnmccaul22

30 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.

People hate him for being a Bowser clone yet I like him anyways

I like him a lot honestly - darthvadern

31 Antasma

I remember the very first time my brother played Mario and Luigi Dream Team and beat Antasma on his new 3ds. He was a really cool looking character and I'm surprised he hasn't been in another game. - RosalinaX

They introduce a brand new villain, brimming with potential, then toss him aside in favor of one of the most overrated (I love Bowser but he is overrated) characters in the series. Antasma got barely any screentime, but I love his design and hope he appears again someday.

Count Antasma should come back in later Mario games instead of Bowser's LMAO Army.

Antasma should be a lot higher on this list.

32 Diddy Kong Diddy Kong is a fictional character in the Donkey Kong series of video games, first appearing in the 1994 game Donkey Kong Country.

He's alright - darthvadern

33 Fire Bro

He doesn't really... deserve more attention. He's basically an echo fighter to Hammer Bro if Hammer Bro was chosen in Smash. - Mario_Deluxe

He's actually been recieving a lot more attention - darthvadern

34 Koopa Paratroopa

Cool enemy - darthvadern

35 Luma

Luma. How terrible that you only appeared in Super Mario Galaxy because Nintendo can't bother with putting you in another game. This is sad. - RosalinaX

Luma is honestly way too underrated! - Breckin

Good - darthvadern

Luma is just as Overatted as Rosalina! Plus Luma is a species,not a character

36 Tiny Kong

She's much cooler than the other Mario girls.

Another Donkey Kong character - darthvadern

A Donkey Kong character. - MarioMaster101

NOT A MARIO CHARACTER STOP - RosalinaX

37 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.

Underrated ha no

Cool koopaling but a bit unoriginal - darthvadern

UNDERRATED TO THE MAX! he's THE BEST! - RosalinaX

38 Cappy

Deserves more attention, he's awesomne with great motivations - darthvadern

39 Iggy Koopa

Koopalings suck, Do we even have to explain how bad those 7 are, and they wasted spots in Mario Kart Tour now too.
Ugh, please, I thought those spots were for Diddy Bowser Jr, Even Boom Boom But no

No, he has a crazy fanbase like the rest of his siblings. - Target

People don't see the true awesomeness of Iggy Koopa!

Favourite Koopaling - darthvadern

40 Penny Crygor
41 King K. Rool King K. Rool is a fictional anthropomorphic crocodile and the main antagonist of Nintendo's Donkey Kong video game franchise, as well as the archenemy of Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.

King K. Rool deserves more credit I mean come on he's the archenemy of Donkey Kong.

Look at all the undeserved hate he gets just because he curbstomps newbies.

Eww. Who put this thing on this list? - RosalinaX

He's more of a DK character than a Mario character - Randomator

42 Dixie Kong Dixie Kong is a character from the Donkey Kong series. She is Diddy Kong's girlfriend and Tiny Kong's older sister.

Isn't that more of a Donkey Kong character? - darthvadern

That's just mean, saying Dixie Kong is better than Princess Daisy!

43 Shy Guy

He deserves more attention and love from fans!

He's been in a ton of spinoffs recently. To the point of being overrated - Randomator

I love shy guy though

Overrated - darthvadern

Ever since SMB2, Shy Guy barely makes any main game appearances. I'm talking about the platformers, by the way. Heshould either:
A) get his own game, like Toad should.
B) become a main game enemy instead of goombas and koopas being everywhere - ShyGuySwag

44 Baby Daisy Baby Daisy is the infant version of the major character in the Mario Bros . franchise, Princess Daisy . She is known for her appearances as a playable character in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 . She is also found as a playable character in Super Mario Sluggers for the Wii .

She doesn't deserve to be on any Mario list, underrated or overrated. That's how bad she is. - RosalinaX

She deserves hate - darthvadern

Baby Daisy is the least overatted character!

Baby Daisy is noisy, whiny, and hard to understand. Even Lakitu can’t really understand her.

45 Captain Syrup

Wario character - darthvadern

46 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.

I think that he was supposed to be "Mario Kart 8" but was replaced by Pink Gold Peach. Also he should be in more Mario games.

Not really underrated but I love him - darthvadern

47 Koops

Great and powerful TTYD partner - darthvadern

48 Rex

Only in Super Mario World, I wonder what Rex would look like in today's time? Maybe we could have a New Super Mario Bros 3 where we have Rex? - MarioMaster101

I mean, they should really be in more games, and I feel that not enough people like them. - GentleTrouter

He is a toy story character - Minecraftisawesone

Underrated enemy - darthvadern

49 Larry Koopa Larry Koopa is the youngest koopaling. He first appeared in Super Mario Bros 3, which came out in 1990. He is known for his blue mohawk hair. He was created by Nintendo.

More like overrated. He had no personality and has boring everything.

Not really, although I like him

He's my favorite koopaling. He is so clever, sneaky, mischievous, and cute.

50 Black Yoshi Black Yoshi is a deuteragonist of SuperMarioLogan. He is a stereotypical black gangster and one of Mario's friends.

racist

Good yoshi - darthvadern

It’s just a stupid color!
