Most Overrated Mario Characters
The Top Ten
At one point, Luigi was underrated... Then that God awful Game Theory video came out. Now everyone hates Mario and thinks that Luigi is so much better.
I like Luigi, but I think he's overrated because his fanbase always insists on putting Luigi as a poor victim of the "bad Mario". In short, His fanbase hate Mario without any concrete reason. They hate Mario because think that "he always gets the glory and mistreats Luigi". what? Mario doesn't have any guilt of having more protagonist than Luigi and be the "famous brother". He's always the center of attention because was created for this ro le in the games, and not because he despises his brother. There is no proof that Mario ever mistreated or abused Luigi in his life. They are brothers, not enemies, for god sake. This overrated victimization that fans created around Luigi is boring.
People see Luigi as a god. People, are you high on drugs? Like literally, everywhere I say Luigi is an overrated character the fans are like "HE NEVER GETS ATTENTION! " and "MARIO IS SO MEAN TO HIM! " Stupid fans need to get their facts straight and stop acting like idiots. Enough said. - RosalinaX
Yeah he is bad - User1234V 50 Comments
People don't even have valid reasons for why he is the least overrated. Literally, all I hear from the fans is "He's cute! " Literally. - RosalinaX
Somebody get Yoshi off of here! - Matthew3000
I hate yoshi - User1234
He doesn't even do anything. - Smash64V 73 Comments
Has anyone else noticed how the koopalings have done nothing since they first appeared? Wario tried to take over Mario's castle. Bowser Junior framed Mario and got him arrested. Hell, even Waluigi tried to take over the world through dance. Since their debut the koopalings have done nothing. I don't know how great characters like Luigi and Rosalina are beating these overrated skins. These seven are just throw away bosses. Notice how a lot of people are saying things like "I'm sick of the koopalings" these days? It's because the koopalings suck and are just lazy filler.
Yeah, I have to agree with this. When I play a new adventure game I like to be surprised by the bosses. Even the original NSMB game had the common sense to use surprise world bosses. Afterwards, it was nothing but the same stale koopaling formula of "fight the koopalings seven times and nothing else." We have the same formula which uses the same boss characters being used in different games. It feels like we're playing the same game over and over again. What's worse is how the koopalings give the creators a fantastic excuse to be downright uncreative. Instead of a variety of bosses we get the same squad of mini-Bowsers. It's pathetic.
Didn't care for them in the old days, hate the koopalings now. Having the same set of boss characters thrown in your face over and over is annoying and lazy. Just imagine if every Megaman game had the same robot masters.
The koopalings are just sorry excuses for filler. They only ever serve as Boss battles and accomplish absolutely NOTHING in the games. - RosalinaXV 113 Comments
People keep saying that Rosalina has not been in enough games to be considered overrated. Daisy, yes has been in more games than Rosalina but, Rosalina has been in more major games than Daisy. Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart with Baby Rosalina, and SUPER Mario 3D WORLD. Daisy is in Mario Kart with Baby Daisy but she isn't in Smash Bros. 3D World was fine with 4 characters until Nintendo included fan service. Rosalina's appearances are just that. Fan service. People also say Peach needs to be taken out of Mario spin-off titles. Princess Peach has been and still is a staple character in the franchise while Rosalina is a relatively recent character. Finally there's reason Nintendo won't let Rosalina kidnapped. She doesn't need to be. Where Peach was created for the sole purpose of being damsel-in-distress, Rosalina was created to help guide Mario in Galaxy and Galaxy 2 and nothing else. She would have stopped there if it weren't for her fanbase. And the fanbase is what makes Rosalina ...more
Rosalina is now a staple character like all the other characters. Nintendo is allowed to make characters become staple. - DCfnaf
An I the only person that hates rosalina? Yes.
I love Rosalina, but there are problems I have with her. First off, people that say Daisy is a Peach clone need to understand that Rosalina isn't close to being different from Peach in terms of facial features; hell in all of the appearances she makes, Nintendo decided to strip her character and make her more of a Space Peach instead. Second, she isn't THAT perfect as her fanboys make her up to be. Her final smash in my opinion, is fairy weak if not timed right, but then her fans insinuate that it's because I'm "butthurt" about Daisy. I actually don't care about Daisy!
And while we're on the subject of her fanboys, they, if not all, can be insufferably annoying. Let's face it, all of you only care about her looks. "SHES SO SMEXXY I WANNA DO HER! WHO CARES SHES HOT! 11! 1! 1! SHE TOO MATURE AND TOO BEAUTIFUL SHES PERFECT" And I'm sorry, I think that's pretty shallow, and I thought Link's fangirls had it bad.
Most of the Rosalina Haters are actually Daisy fans. I'm not a big fanboy of Rosalina but most of Rosalina's haters defend Daisy. - DCfnaf
I made good GMod art in deviantART, especially with my Mii characters, which I put lots of effort into. However, even though that I have over 400 watchers, my GMod pictures are nothing more than dust collectors that barely gets more than 10 favorites.
But I swear to god, when I do a GMod image with a Mario princess (Rosalina for example), the favorites are skyrocketing, easily getting over 60-70 favorites. That definitively shows how overrated they are.
Daisy is only a spin off character who is mainly used to fill up the Mario Party and Kart game rosters, but her fan base stresses her importance more then necessary. There isn't anything really special about Daisy in general. Yet her fans treat her like she's more important than all the other princesses and female characters. She needs to stay in spin off games only and find herself a use to the series before I can start liking her. - RosalinaX
She only appears in Mario Party / Kart games, and only exists as another kind of "princess" character aside Peach. - Mario_Deluxe
Other than leading to the creation a couple more characters (one of them becoming a total meme), Daisy has almost nothing going for her, plus her fanbase only likes her for being loud (and frankly, her fanbase is as loud as her) and also for that slap in Mario Party 3. And let me tell you, they don't just use that feat, they WORSHIP it. As for their targets, they are Rosalina and Peach, but mostly Rosalina. Even Rosalina has something going for her. They call her a sadistic space mom adored by perverts who sacrifices her Lumas for no reason, who didn't even deeserve her spot in Smash. Compared to a sports person who has no distinct traits from Peach other than FLEWER PEWER. - Qryx
I hate Daisy she is the worse than Hotel Mario. - myusernameisthisV 46 Comments
He has been getting a lot of love - darthvadern
At least he only takes one slot in MK.
So I realize tons of people like bowser Jr. I looked at his page on super Mario wiki and saw that he's SO OVERRATED. He kills Mario, one of the best characters. Bowser Jr. is actually pretty bad and he deserves number one.
He is a tad overrated by Nintendo because they only use him as an 8th Koopaling instead of trying to build something unique but that's it. - DaisyandRosalinaV 35 Comments
He's good but I find Cackletta better - darthvadern
A villain that appeared in 3 games, has cool lines and charisma but nothing that hilarious, kidnapped the princess like most of the other villains. His character is average I just don't see the appeal. - DaisyandRosalina
It literally says awful in his name.
I have no idea what's so great on this... Thing...V 13 Comments
How is Toad not in the top three? Some Yoshi fans are criticized for liking the dinosaur solely because he's cute. At least Yoshi actually does heroic things. Some Toad fans like the characters solely for his cuteness, but Toad is practically useless.
Thanks to a certain fanboy - darthvadern
How is he on overrated list I feel like whoever put him on his list is just randomly clicking he’s cute
He wears diapers.V 16 Comments
Haha! His nose! No offense. - TriggerTrashKid
I like him - darthvadern
Baby Luigi is a coward.
This character... is not even cute, come on he looks like a bean, he only has fans because he is the Baby version of Luigi. Side note, he is CONSTANTLY crying. - DaisyandRosalinaV 8 Comments
Getting sick of her lately
Please give me one reason of how she is overrated. I want to know. If anything, she's definitely underrated, as far as Mario Characters go. I mean, Waluigi and Wario or more popular than her. - RosalinaX
She is literally a female Toad, despite all Toads being genderless. How does that even work? Why is she the only pink Toad? - LittleAwesomeApple
Underrated actually - darthvadernV 6 Comments
Barely even rated at all - MarioBros11
Root of clones - darthvadern
Original the character, do not steel!
Metal Mario is like what Funky kong was in Mario kart wii.V 2 Comments
He's ugly and annoying, Worse than Wario.
To be honest, Waluigi really doesn't have any special traits to be a character. I don't see why a lot of people want him in smash. Mario characters take up the 1st row of the roster anyways. He's NEVER been in a main game (daisy with super Mario land, Wario with super Mario land 2, yoshi with nearly every Mario game after Super Mario World and bowser Jr with sunshine) Waluigi however, is only in Mario spinoff games and to make it worse, was only created to be Wario's tennis partner. Why do people call him "sexy"? that is an insult to real sexy people that you are comparing them to this hitler looking guy. Please vote for someone else for smash Y'know an ACTUAL character (we could have another sonic character) jeez, if things keep up like this, we could end up seeing pink gold peach and goomba in the roster!
He needs to be in smash
Waluigi is nothing special honestly. His character and purpose is bland and there is nothing significant about him really. His appearances are only relegated to spin-offs. Then again, Nintendo doesn't really acknowledge Waluigi too much.
Also, why do people want him in Smash Bros.? I don't see anything unique about him. A tennis racket? Seems like something anyone would use and it isn't even exclusive to him since every main Mario character uses one. And besides, we have more than enough Mario characters in Smash at this point. And his fanbase is something I myself don't understand, other than the fact that it's the sole reason why Waluigi is popular these days anyway. - CrimsonShark
How is he overrated? I'd say he's underrated. - MarioBros11
He's funny as heck - darthvadern
He's old and weird
But he's so awesome. He's funny, clever, kind, and a all-around great character. I just wish he was playable. Maybe as MK8 DLC? We already have enough versions or Mario and Peach, Nintendo. Give us something better. We didn't need Baby versions, or Metal versions, heck, the power up ones were just dumb. Nintendo, in pack three of MK8 DLC, give of characters that are from other games, like Sonic, Pokemon, or Metriod. If you don't, give us E Gadd, King Boo, Plessie, Baby Yoshi, Petey Piranha, Bowser Jr, Diddy/Dixie Kong, Kamek, Birdo, something we want! Not just clones of Mario and Peach! We don't want Green Silver Luigi, either! - ShyGuySwagV 5 Comments
Unoriginal and bland - Randomator
Bland but really good - darthvadern
Another character popular because he looks cute, he is one of the most generic enemies in the series and has no character. - DaisyandRosalina
Krapalings should be higher, especially this one. Larry does the same thing over and over yet gets love because of his Mohawk. - DCfnaf
He's really a donkey kong character though - darthvadern
And he's overpowered in Tropical Freeze.
But he's so fantastic. He's funny, clever, kind, and a all-around great character. I just wish he was playable. Maybe as MK8 DLC? We already have enough versions or Mario and Peach, Nintendo. Give us something better. We didn't need Baby versions, or Metal versions, heck, the power-ups like tanooki Mario and cat peach sucked. Nintendo, in pack three of MK8 DLC, give of characters that are from other games, like Pikachu, Pokemon, or Ganondorf. If you don't, give us Funky Kong, King Boo, Dry Bones, candy kong, Petey Piranha, honey queen, Diddy/Dixie Kong, Kamek, tiny kong, something we want! Not just clones of Mario and Peach! We don't want Green Bronze Luigi, either!
Character-specific stat boosts shouldn't ever have been included in Mario Kart Wii because these made Funky Kong try to invade Mario Kart Wii online gameplay. My advice for you, Nintendo, is that: if you're going to include statistics for each character, make it evenly balanced instead of stat bonuses.V 13 Comments
I actually love him - darthvadern
Just another example of Pink Gold Peach but on Bowser. Great. - RosalinaX
Underrated. - MarioBros11
He is my favorite character in the mario universe. But I am confused about whether or not he's bowser because he appears as the second-to-last boss in mario party island tour and appears in mario party ten after bowser loses half his health in the final bossV 4 Comments
Peach is used to much because she's the top girl. No one notices daisy toadette or rosalina. People are too concerned about pink preschool looking princesses.
Too much love for her when she's basically ditsy.
Luigi should not be number one. Peach is just overrated as hell
You types of people hate her only because of her voice/her being too girly,
While also saying she's weak.
She isn't weak at all. - Qryzx
The opposite - darthvadernV 54 Comments
She's a wario character though - darthvadern
Most of the people have a thing for goths, a lot of them are incredibly popular or overrated and of course since Ashley is a goth she is overrated as well, her character is average, just a witch in training. - DaisyandRosalina
The apprentice witch or whatever from WarioWare, I assume?
"You better learn my name 'cause it's ASHLEY! " Unfortunately I DO know your name and your dumb song won't let me or anyone else who hears it forget it!
She is overrated by Nintendo!
Overrated? Nobody likes this character what you talking about
Pink Gold Peach is a spirit along with other characters that actually deserve to be a fighter, like Bandana Dee. - LittleAwesomeApple
OH HELL NAH. She should be #1! This stupid filler character that has no character and personality whatsoever and got rid of GOOD characters should get burned on a stake alive and tossed into a volcano. She is THAT BAD. - RosalinaXV 10 Comments
I like Lemmy because he would always piss me off whenever I played Super Mario for wii - RosalinaX
One of the lesser great Koopalings - darthvadern
He bouncie on heez ball, mahn. - MarioBros11
Same as Larry, he has little to no character and is just cute (not even that much in my opinion). - DaisyandRosalina
Not really overrated - darthvadern
How’s he overrated? He’s barely in anything nowadays and he’s more of a Donkey Kong character - Randomator
I don't even know what game he's from. - MarioBros11
Character design inspired by a trash can!
He's in one game and doesn't have any memorable character moments except for he's a living doll and people go crazy for him what?
He made a cameo in Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga but that is it. - LittleAwesomeApple
His fans would not shut up about him not being in the Super Smash Bros games.V 5 Comments
NOT OVERRATED. These lists are stupid. - MarioBros11
He's kinda overrated but he's awesome - darthvadern
He's an awesome character and all, but I think it's time for a different character to take Bowser's place as the main villain, like say Tatanga, or a villain from the Mario and Luigi series or the Paper Mario series. And I think it's time for Bowser and his minions to reform. - ArthurEngine
Nintendo never puts any villains besides Bowser in the main series. They should go for variety, like add the past characters (Wart etc. ) back in.V 12 Comments
The reason she and the other girls have pacifiers is because they are younger and need it because they cry more than baby Mario and baby luigi
Not even that bad - darthvadern
This should be top 1. Seriously, she is the worst Mario character! I think she is even worse than the adult Princess Peach!
The way you said the third sentence makes me think you hate Peach. - Qryzx
I wish that overrated baby shut up. She will never be better than Baby Daisy or Baby Rosalina, and thus she forever fails.
Except she is better than both of those since she serves a purpose. Baby Rosalina sucks since she ruined Rosalina. - DCfnafV 7 Comments
What the hell? - MarioBros11
Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong are better - darthvadern
He does appear in some spin-offs though. So he is partially. - Qryzx
He was in the very very firstV 4 Comments
Shy Guys are incredibly annoying
In my family he is quite overrated because everyone plays as him in spin-off's while I just pick Koopa Troopa/Hammer Bro/Birdo - darthvadern
He is cute but not that much, he is mysterious but at the end under the mask there is just another enemy. I don't get the appeal. - DaisyandRosalina
Seriously, what's the appeal? Is it because they look cute? I really don't understand it, it's just so overrated and most people's reason are ridiculous!V 4 Comments
Um...wasn't there a slot that was called 'Koopalings'? - MarioBros11
One of the better Koopalings and the most underrated - darthvadern
She is acutally really underrated, she barely has fans. - DaisyandRosalina
I don't like her (she has an ugly design and comes across as an unlikable brat), but why is she overrated? I don't think I've ever seen anyone saying they like her. - TreacleV 7 Comments
AGAIN, he’s better than the girls, I admit.
Decent one - darthvadern
I hate whenever he loses in Mario kart and all he does is cry. It's so irritating. How can anyone like him?
Why do people like him
Eh, she's awesome - darthvadern
... you need hate
Everyone cares so much about someone who only appears on 1 game I think. She's a wizard in disguise.
Bobbery is much betterV 2 Comments
Underrated minion. Love that he appeared in Super Mario Party - darthvadern
Creepy character - darthvadern
People are so caring about her when she's ugly and no one knows who the hell she is!
You hate her because because of her character design and the fact that she's not necessarily famous? Seriously?
She May Not Be The Main Character Of The Mario Franchise, But She's Still Overrated.
A little bit overrated due to Odyssey. But who cares? - MarioBros11
She's overrated because everyone calls her underrated plus Super Mario Odyssey - darthvadern
Seriously, ONE game (Donkey Kong). And she wasn't even memorable in it.
To those who don't know who Paulina is, she's Mario's old girlfriend before Peach. But seriously, how is she overrated? I mean, she's like, forgotten already!V 2 Comments
He deserves the praise. While Count Bleck is better, Dimentio is one scary and smart guy - darthvadern
He is so overrated that they have him a name besides Magikoopa. - MarioBros11
Kamek is underrated - darthvadern
Um almost everyone hates him - darthvadern
Blooper is hated ;_; - InklingSethO
A clone who is MUCH BETTER than Koopa! He is actually UNDERRATED!
Calm down people, he is a troop enemy, nothing too serious, he is above average but not perfect. - DaisyandRosalina
So people hate Dry Bowser for being a clone but love Dry Bones though he is a Koopa Troopa clone? What is with people!? - darthvadern
He is just a Koopa clone...
Literally the opposite of overrated - darthvadern
How’s she overrated? She has what 2 appearances in Mario games? - Randomator
That girl is so overrated! Since her debut, Dixie Kong annoyed out of me! And she will never be able to do anything better than Miles "Tails" Prower! Maybe only a couple of things, but Tails is the original in comparison to Tails & Dixie Kong.
Everybody wants her in Smash Bros and NO ONE wants Candy Kong, who is the one I want.V 3 Comments
No, I like him, besides he's very underrated like almost all of the RPG characters - darthvadern
Why does everyone think is is so good he is just a stupid star.
Overhated actually - darthvadern
He's actually quite underrated when compared to Fawful or Dimentio - darthvadern
Antasma looks so uncanny in a kart. I guess this is why Nintendo decided to avoid the RPGs like Fawful or Dimentio in the popular Mario spinoffs.
All the koopalings are overrated (except Wendy cause she's actually hated) but Ludwig is most love cause who knows =/
Just plain overrated
Ludwig is the greatest character of all time. My own humble opinion, but I do admit, Ludwig is the most loved Koopaling. I'm glad so many people agree with me.
Krapalings. Take up boss slots and Mario kart slots. - DCfnafV 1 Comment
Not a real character - Randomator
Is He Even A Real Mario Character? Or Is He Just A Power-Up.
This isn't even a CHARACTER... It's an amiibo...
Pretty bland - Randomator
So underrated second most underrated and I think he's awesome with those swag shades
Eh I'm sick of the Koopalings. - DCfnaf
The worst Koopaling of the bunch
Why didn't they just stick to Bowser? - MarioBros11
Villian of Super Mario Land - darthvadern
What the hell
Mario is overrated but I don't CARE BECAUSE HE IS MEANT TO BE I mean guys he's the main character.
I agree. It would just be absurd if the the main character wasn't the most popular. If anyone thinks Mario is overrated, than that's pretty much calling the entire franchise itself overrated.
No. Just simply no. - MarioBros11
Bread has more personality than himV 28 Comments
No one even knows who she is anymore! - MarioBros11
Why is he at the bottom he is more overrated than Waluigi and yet people hate on Waluigi even though waluigi is a much better character and he doesn't do or act like a dirty unmanneres schizophrenic seriously why does anyone like wario he is the most abhorrent male character in the Mario games nobody even likes him that I know of in person none of my friends even pick him has like the daisy for the male characters the most generic and lame of them all.
In Smash he's pretty powerful if you're horrible at the game. He's on a fairly low tier, and isn't too hard to annihilate if your chosen character has a sword. The only upsides he has is that he's kinda fast, he's the smallest heavyweight character, and he has two recovery moves... you know what I mean.
Okay, How Exactly Can He Be Overrated If Almost Everyone Hates Him? Try And Think About That For A Second.
He is my favorite. Why does everyone hate Wario? Cause he farts? Who do you know that doesn't fart! - DCfnaf
True, if you have character development, you sure are a crappy character. You should be bland and uninteresting and the only aspect of you that is good is that you are cute. - DCfnafV 8 Comments
Most uncreative character ever. Nintendo must be on drugs when making Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.
Golden Mario is so strong I can not think of anything else.
