10 Most Underrated Mario Characters


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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?

22 Peach Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. 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 Bros. 2, Super Mario Run, and even starred in ...read more.

But Peach is already on the list...

Peach sweeps bosses for 6 times. It can be proved with 'Super Mario Bros. 2(1988)', 'Super Princess Peach(2005)', 'Super Paper Mario(2007)', 'Super Mario 3D World(2013)', 'Super Mario Run(2016)', 'Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle(2017)'.

And she isn't be kidnapped always or often. She appears at about 100 games, and be kidnapped for about 34 times. Her be kidnapping percentages are about 34%, just similar to 1/3, so just sometimes.

Also, she has many talents. She manages Mushroom Kingdom, has great therapy ability(she cures Mario and her teammates) and magic ability(she can crush Dream Stone.), appears as a chef in 'Game & Watch gallery 2(1997)', leads her rock band as a leader in 'Super Princess Peach(2005)', and bakes cakes very well.
And she works as one of the professional athletes at over 30 sports events. Besides, she can float quite a while with her long dress.

Peach is underrated so much in spite of her activities and many talents.

23 Dry Bones Dry Bones

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.

24 Koopa Paratroopa
25 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 ...read more.

The attack of the Playstation buttons - shawnmccaul22

He has a Annoying voice and can Rot in Hell - ToadF1

He's another character who isn't so much loved. I have always believed to be the only one who like him, but I have seen in other sites positive comments about him and I am very relieved. In my opinion, the fact that Kamek is a very nice person you can already see from his cute face. Glasses, then, makes him even funnier, as well as his awkward gait and his way of expressing himself. In games where he dialogue openly, Kamek shows his irony and sarcasm against the other people. Even his squeaky voice makes me laugh a lot. The fact that he is not very common in games leads him to not be a favorite of the people, but in my opinion this does not make sense. Why hate someone so nice if there are more b*tches?
P.S. :HE IS NOT A FEMALE! I get very angry when I hear this rumour!

26 Dixie Kong Dixie Kong

Still better than Pink Gold Peach.

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

27 Mona

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

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.

28 Fire Bro
29 Luma Luma

Lumas are Not the Proper Characters - ToadF1

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

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

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 King K. Rool

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

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

33 Luigi Luigi Luigi is a fictional character featured in video games and related media released by Nintendo. Created by prominent game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Luigi is portrayed as the slightly younger but taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Mario ...read more.

No, he's not underrated. He has a ton of fans who love him to the point of hating Mario for being the star of the franchise. Seriously, I'm not pointing to all the Luigi fans out there but his fan base REALLY has some issues to work out.

Why is HE here? He's the most liked character in the whole franchise! And a lot of his fans can be annoying...

Oh For The Love Of God! Why The Hell Is Luigi On Here?!

34 Tiny Kong Tiny Kong

Probably Forgotten - ToadF1

35 Shy Guy 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

Yes - ToadF1

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

36 Baby Daisy 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 .

Baby Daisy is the least overatted character!

That bitch doesn't deserve to be in here.

37 Cackletta

Best Female Villain Ever.

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.

No - ToadF1

Cackletta needs to be put on a lot of lists of best Mario characters (as Mario villains). What's wrong with her? One half-major complaint I have towards Cackletta is that she "tole Princess Peach's overly feminine, annoying voice. Isn't that part of the great story (which is actually the weakest most-major aspect [of a video game] out of presentation and gameplay)? Also, Princess Peach was not in her castle. She is one of the only major flaws M&L: SS has, but throughout the whole first half of this underrated game (Mario & Luigi is mainly underrated, especially BIS's predecessors), we do realize that Princess Peach's voice was not stolen. Princess Peach can be three-dimensional at times, but she is nowhere near as overrated as some Mario enemies such as Cackletta.

38 Rex

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
