Most Overrated Mario Characters

The Top Ten

1 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.

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 by the standards of the fandom he's rather overrated.

Everyone pretty much hates Mario and worships Luigi like an idol head.

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.

NO NOT WEEGEE

2 Yoshi Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo.

Toad is more overrated than Yoshi. Toad now got his own game that is great while Yoshi's last game (Yoshi's New Island) was pure crap. Toad is even playable in more mainstream Mario games like 3D World while Yoshi got replaced by a crappy Yoshi ripoff.

Yoshi should be number one. His fans don't think he is overrated and he is. I don't hate Yoshi, but he's just a dinosaur with the same personality as Mario...but he's cute and has cool abilities. Nothing special or developed the way Luigi, Rosalina, Bowser, and Wario are. - DCfnaf

I used to like Yoshi, but he's so overrated that it just sickens me that on top ten best Mario characters he's number 1 on there and has a bunch of comments like, "Yoshi is so adorable! He's so cute! " "Yoshi Is awesome and he can eat anything! " So it makes it hard for me to like Yoshi anymore.

(Sigh) I remember back when I liked Yoshi.(Super Mario World, Yoshi's Island,) But oh how time has changed.I still like him don't get me wrong. However I have diagnosed Yoshi with Overloaded Fanbase Syndrome. The fans are over the top when it comes to Yoshi. "He's so cute." "Sooo adorable,etc. It sickens me to the point that I find it hard to like him anymore. Everyone treats him like a baby and wonder why he seems overrated.. (Must be blind)HE IS OVERRATED. He's just Mario's pet/companion with as much personality as Mario plus a few abilities. Nothing like Luigi or Wario or Bowser.

3 Rosalina 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.

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

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 think the Daisy fans are overreacting. Rosalina's still in less than 10 games while Daisy's in over 20 games. Rosalina deserves to be more playable because she was ignored the last years. So please calm down! Jeez.

Rosalina should appear in more than 80 games & Princess Daisy should appear in more than 90 games.

SOOO OVERRATED DAISY SHOULD BE IN SMASH AND 3D WORLD

4 Bowser Jr

There is no aspect of him that is original. Not only does he look like a knock-off of Baby Bowser, he's done the Koopa Clown Car concept to death all on his own. Sure, he can breathe fire, but then again, the Koopalings could do that and better. He can operate machinery? Not that impressive when this is in the same world where an armless chestnut can swing a baseball bat. On top of that, he's a bigger brat than Wendy and more cowardly than Luigi or any of the Toads. The fact that he's Bowser's second-in-command by nepotism alone and that he's Miyamoto's "Creator's Pet" doesn't help.

Bowser Jr. Is in EVERY Mario game. He's way too overused! In a LOAD of games is Bowser playable and his kid. And if that's not enough we got the 'dead' version of Bowser, playable, too! THREE BOWSERS, all of them playable! Bowser Jr. Is overused and overrated.

Nintendo never puts any villains besides Bowser Jr and his idiot dad in the important Mario series. They should go for variety, like add Lemmy, Iggy, Ludwig, and the rest of the Koopalings instead of Bowser Jr and his mean dad. He's the reason why Peach appears on more games than Daisy and Rosalina. He let others like Honey Queen, Daisy, Rosalina, Funky Kong, Diddy Kong, and the Koopalings bit the dust. What a turd! He should be forbidden for the next Mario games.

So he can operate a machine... Yeah well that's not that impressive. I mean keep in mind that this is the same world where. Queen Bees,Catipiliars,Turtles,Dinosaur creatures, Ghosts, Babies, Gorrillas, skeletons,monkeys,mushroom people,and metal people Can all drive go karts. Bowser Jr is the biggest Whiney coward Brat in Mario. I was so relieved when he wasn't in Mario kart 8 or 3D world or land. And Maybe Nintendo is just kicking him out of newer games. Point here is that he won't be in Mario Odessey!

He first appeared in the classic game, Super Mario Bros . after being kidnapped by Bowser and his minions . Since then he ...read more.

Toad is overrated. - DCfnaf

Toad's really starting to steal Yoshi's Spotlight. I want a mainstream Mario game (except 64 DS), where Yoshi's one of the playables. I want to collect stars or save the princess with Yoshi. What is so great about Toad?

Wait when has toad stole the spotlight of yoshi? Everybody keeps saying he is the best mario character constantly. - spodermanfan1000

Yoshi and Toad are equal! They both help Mario and Luigi, are loyal to them, are kind, and are a species.

Is it just me or is Toad becoming a filler character? In New super Mario Bro's he has not 1 but 2 character slots!
In 3D World he was added over Yoshi. YOSHI! He even has a Captain Toad Clone now with his own game. Oh remember when everyone hated toad... Original Mario Bro's. SORRY BUT OUR PRINCESS IS IN ANOTHER CASTLE. Sound Familiar? Yep that was TOAD for your information.

6 Funky Kong

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.

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!

Back in Mario Kart Wii, Funky Kong was among the other new characters, Now, although Funky is fairly obscure, there is nothing particularly wrong with the actual character. The problem came when everyone online started using him on the Flame Runner because of his ridiculously high speed! You want Bowser Jr. ? FUNKY FUNKY MONKEY ON THE FLAME RUNNER! How about Rosalina? FUNKY FUNKY MONKEY ON THE FLAME RUNNER! Oh look! Toad! King Boo! Bowser! DIDDY KONG! NOPE! FUNKY FUNKY MONKEY ON THE FLAME RUNNER! ARGHHH! I CAN'T STAND FUNKY! I HATE HIM! Thank goodness he's gone from Mario Kart. Whew! But before you know it, another DLC pack will be announced, and guess who will be included? Diddy Kong? NOPE! FUNKY FUNKY MONKEY ON THE FLAME RUNNER! GRRR!

7 Fawful Fawful Fawful, known in Japan as Gerakobits, is a fictional character appearing in the Mario & Luigi series of role-playing video games developed by AlphaDream.

I have no idea what's so great on this... Thing...

You are not liking Fawful? I have chortles! I gather the tears of the hating fink-rats who are of the hating of Fawful and use the tears that have fury as the water with which I make my lemonade of tastiness!

I am liking Fawful! You have happiness at the fact that there are no hating fink rats and they just believe that Fawful is praised as much as a pie of wow! - DCfnaf

He isn't funny and is just plain annoying and sad

This piece of bean steaming crap is so overrated! He is pretty much a waifu to everyone who over hypes Bowser's Inside Story.

8 Toadette 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.

People dare complain about Rosalina being in everything but Toadette gets a pass. Logic, my friends. - DCfnaf

You are very welcome, friend. I just don't get it. You are 100% correct, Toadette is totally overrated. I don't know why Nintendo loves using her. Probably because she is basically a palette swap of Toad. Toadette doesn't have everything Rosalina does. In fact, Rosalina should be lower due to her recent hate. - DCfnaf

That's just me or Toadette is starting to be more overrated recently? - DaisyandRosalina

She sucks and is overrated in Mario kart double dash - YOSHIA2121

9 Koopalings

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.

Oh, these guys. Yeah, having the same set of boss characters thrown in your face over and over again is obnoxious and lazy.

It would be different if they did something interesting, but the koopalings suck.

10 Daisy

It's just ridiculous that the fanboys are whining and ranting all the time just because Rosalina is in more than 6 games playable. Daisy's in over 20 games! Hello?

I'd say maybe its because unlike Rosalina, she's a lot more notorious when it comes to hate. (Due to her catchphrase) It seems apparent that Rosalina is becoming the most popular princess on the Internet due to her beauty. Rosalina is in a small number of games due to what a recent character.

Can her fans SERIOUSLY shut up? They give Rosalina unwarranted hate because they feel like Daisy does nothing anymore, but she does since they haven't gotten rid of her! Not to mention Rosalina is NOT replacing Daisy. Then again, her hate base is not better. They are cancer. - DCfnaf

She have a lot of haters, she's more underrated than overrated.

Yess she should be #1

The Contenders

11 Baby Luigi

The first comment here is proving EVERYONE'S point here. Baby Luigi is overrated because it's a baby form of Luigi. No wonder Baby Peach is hated! - DCfnaf

I liked baby Luigi. Was the cutest baby in PiT, and wasn't an annoying brat like baby peach. Favorite baby actually

Your comment is proving our point. Wasn't Baby Mario also a brat? - DCfnaf

No one like baby Luigi no one like Little Luigi when he was a baby

12 Metal Mario

Original the character, do not steel!

Metal Mario is like what Funky kong was in Mario kart wii.

Most overused character in Mario Kart 7. The OP is the B-Dasher and those Red Monster tires. - recaller

13 Larry Koopa Larry Koopa

Krapalings should be higher, especially this one. Larry does the same thing over and over yet gets love because of his Mohawk. - DCfnaf

14 Peach

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

Peach is a terrible Mary Sue that should go extinct.

15 Dry Bowser 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.

Why has Bowsers skeleton become more popular than he is

16 Waluigi Waluigi Waluigi is a selfish, greedy man who works closely with the infamous Wario. He is Luigi's rival and is known as the opposite of him. Waluigi first appeared in the Gameboy Color game, Mario Tennis as Wario's partner. He has appeared in every Mario Tennis game since, still remaining as Wario's wicked ...read more.

Why he should be underrated? Because Nintendo use him as a spin-off filler? This is literally why he was created. Oh and his fanbase is CRAZY. - DaisyandRosalina

He sucks and is a complete failure to the Mario series - YOSHIA2121

The fans are too rude with me!

This guy has never been in a main game! THAT IS AN OUTRAGE! >:( He's been in Mario spin offs for over 15 years and still! at least give him his own game like the other 3 or include him in a main game because that is outrageous!

17 Bowser 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.

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.

Bowser is one of the most complex and interesting characters in the franchise. He shouldn't be on this list. - DCfnaf

There's a reason why he's "overrated"

I like Bowser, but it would be nice to have a break from him sometimes...

There are so many other villains out there like Tatanga, Antasma, and Wart that Nintendo could use instead of the same old "Rescue the Princess! " plot

18 Baby Peach Baby Peach Baby Peach is the infant version of the major character from the Mario Series, Princess Peach. She is mostly known for her appearances in the Mario Kart Franchise in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 as a playable character, but she also appears in other Mario games, including Yoshi's Island DS, in which ...read more.

This should be top 1. Seriously, she is the worst Mario character! I think she is even worse than the adult Princess Peach!

Baby Peach is a bastard who is bossy & any male person of any age's stalker like her adult self!

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. - DCfnaf

This whiny moron, Pink Gold Peach, and Cat Peach replaced Bowser Jr, Dry Bones, and Honey Queen in Mario Kart 8. Woo you, Nintendo.

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! - ShyGuySwag

(Trqnslqted automaticly) "yemmemba sosososuku, asiee kay see kay, oh potopou sang sand sang."

His voice is funny but the character is half moron: Why did he send a yellow toad in Dark Moon with a phobia of clocks and also, why did he sell King bol to q garbage sale, He should be the real villain of LMDM - Super64Mario
