Most Overrated Mario Characters
The Top Ten Most Overrated Mario Characters
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.
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.
My friend kept saying that Luigi is better than Mario and that Mario was just trying to hog the spotlight and overshadow him and when I tried to defend Mario, he'd just say "You only like him because he's more popular" and then he went on about "how nice he is" and opening the door for Mario and then he said Mario was a jerk just because the door automatically closed. And I told him that Mario was nice enough to save a princess a million times and he said "He did it to hog the spotlight" Ugh, Luigi fans... I can only imagine how terrible Luigi's fanbase is...
I don't care for a turtle dino hybrid that eats enemies for you - Kankajou
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
"Yoshi is the best because he is so cute! " Ugh.
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
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.
Oh, these guys. Yeah, having the same set of boss characters thrown in your face over and over again is obnoxious and lazy.
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
Everyone who commented on peach said that Rosalina sucks and I say that they and peach sucks really really SUCKS! Rosalina is the most RARE and EXPENSIVE character ever and EVER!
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.
Rosalina is a lot different from Peach, and I can come up with ten different reasons on how they are different. Second, most of the fan base like her because of her personality, and half are little kids who wouldn't even think of what you described. You shouldn't accuse everyone of a fan base to be annoying. - RosalinaX
Okay first off, I like Daisy and Rosalina's my favorite princess of the Mario franchise. And yeah, I'll get that Rosalina's getting a bit overrated but seriously, the hatred of her is getting ridiculous. Same with Gardevoir (which is also one of my favorites), Rosalina has some creepy fans because of her attractiveness. But I love her because she's so lovely and beautiful, like Gardevoir. Like Gardevoir she'll protect the cosmos and, more importantly, protects her lumas. Like Gardevoir, it'll protect her trainer at all costs.
I know hating a character for their fanbase is very petty, but if Daisy didn't have a terrible fanbase I would actually consider her half decent. - K1l
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
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.
One issue I have with Daisy is how she's a princess only by label. Peach rules over the toads. Rosalina rules over the lumas. In comparison, Daisy has no subjects. This "princess" has no subjects or citizens to rule over or govern.
Daisy still has no subjects, yet she uses blue Toad in her Super Smash Bros. Ultimate move set? Why? - LittleAwesomeApple
So people talk about Rosalina being shoehorned into everything, but people want this guy in Smash? This guy? The guy who has done nothing in his own franchise? The hell...
Come on, isn’t Daisy bad enough? Waluigi has the worst and most underrated fanbase of all time.
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
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!
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.
This is hilarious, Toad is UNDERRATED, he's disliked by over half of the Mario community solely for a reason that didn't involve his character but rather those annoying "Mushroom Retainer" clones of his. - KennyRulz244444
Is in way too many games and we need a break from his marge like voice - YOSHIA2121
He sounds nothing like Marge, for one. But yeah, he has too much emphasis in Paper Mario these days. - Extractinator04
Terribly overused by Nintendo but kind of underrated by fans, sure his character is not that interesting but still. - DaisyandRosalina
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
Not only that, but Nintendo decided people wanted to play as Toadette instead of Peach in Super Mario Maker 2, which makes no sense. - LittleAwesomeApple
She is literally a female Toad, despite all Toads being genderless. How does that even work? Why is she the only pink Toad? - LittleAwesomeApple
Somehow gets a pass while people whine about Rosalina appearing in everything - Randomator
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
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
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
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.
He has been getting a lot of love - darthvadern
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.
If people hate clone characters like metal Mario then why does everyone like bowser jr? Seriously. How am I the only one who realizes that Bowser Jr is basically baby bowser with a bib with teeth and a paintbrush and clown car. But those are all small differences. So he is an unoriginal character. He should be just as hated as metal Mario and pink gold peach. And you thought the koopalings were bad. Bowser Jr is worse.
We already have Kamek as the head wand wielder. Why do we need this mohawked butthat?
Dumbass character and lousy boss.
Another character popular because he looks cute, he is one of the most generic enemies in the series and has no character. - DaisyandRosalina
No one like baby Luigi no one like Little Luigi when he was a baby
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
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. - DaisyandRosalina
Yes he is overrated - DCfnaf
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
Barely even rated at all - MarioBros11
Instead of a boss of actual worth we get this turd with a rubber ball.
Worst than Pink Gold Peach. PGP doesn't repeatedly steal boss slots!
He's really stupid.
I like Lemmy because he would always piss me off whenever I played Super Mario for wii - RosalinaX
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
How is he overrated? I'd say he's underrated. - MarioBros11
E Gadd is awesome! - DCfnaf
He's old and weird
He is overrated but if he wasn't the strongest in mario kart wii no one would have cared for him expect for a few (DKC) fans - Yoshidude
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.
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!
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 boss
He is definitely overrated, he's a clone character and he doesn't deserve to be a separate character just because he looks cool. - DCfnaf
I actually love him - darthvadern
Just another example of Pink Gold Peach but on Bowser. Great. - RosalinaX
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.
No one uses Peach anymore. She gets so much pathetic hate on her. - RosalinaX
Too much love for her when she's basically ditsy.
All she does is whine, get kidnapped and never defends herself, how does she have fanbase?
Peach is so overrated she has six versions of herself inTour!
The apprentice witch or whatever from WarioWare, I assume?
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
She's a wario character though - darthvadern
"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!
Lousy blue haired boss slot stealing piece of garbage.
All the koopalings are overrated (except Wendy cause she's actually hated) but Ludwig is most love cause who knows =/
Just plain overrated
Overrated? Nobody likes this character what you talking about
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. - RosalinaX
Pink Gold Peach is a spirit along with other characters that actually deserve to be a fighter, like Bandana Dee. - LittleAwesomeApple
Overload of overratedness! You are underrating this overrated character. - MarioBros11
He does appear in some spin-offs though. So he is partially. - Qryzx
Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong are better - darthvadern
He was in the very very first
What the hell? - 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!
I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHO THIS IS my cousin keeps talking about her so much!
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
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
I like Bowser, but let's be real he doesn't need to be the bad guy in every single game.
Not really overrated - darthvadern
How’s he overrated? He’s barely in anything nowadays and he’s more of a Donkey Kong character - Randomator
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.
More overrated than Luigi in my opinion - PerfectImpulseX
Character design inspired by a trash can!
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
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. - DCfnaf
Baby Peach is a bastard who is bossy & any male person of any age's stalker like her adult self!
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. - Treacle
No she's underrated because everybody hate her.
She's underrated not overrated...
She's underrated, not overrated.
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
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!
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
Shy Guys are incredibly annoying
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
Decent one - darthvadern
AGAIN, he’s better than the girls, I admit.
Everyone cares so much about someone who only appears on 1 game I think. She's a wizard in disguise.
Bobbery is much better
Eh, she's awesome - darthvadern
Vivian is weak! I never liked PMTTYD anyways!
Underrated minion. Love that he appeared in Super Mario Party - 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.
Creepy character - darthvadern
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.
Overrated? More Like Overhated!
If Mario is overrated then explain why he's getting so much hate? - nintendofan126
As a character, this guy sucks. His design is bland. His voice is grating, and his catchphrases in broken English are stupid and annoying. He has no personality, and is thus a very uninteresting main character in his story-based games (even if you want a "blank state" the players can project themselves onto, you have to put in more effort that this). If he didn't happen to star in many high-quality games, you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone willing to admit they like him. - Treacle
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
So underrated second most underrated and I think he's awesome with those swag shades
He's just Boom Boom in sunglasses.
Eh I'm sick of the Koopalings. - DCfnaf
Pretty bland - Randomator
A clone who is MUCH BETTER than Koopa! He is actually UNDERRATED!
Dry bones is so much better than a koopa troopa! he can come back to life! koopa troopas can't do that! he is also immune to fire and he just looks cool.
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
Calm down people, he is a troop enemy, nothing too serious, he is above average but not perfect. - DaisyandRosalina
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.
Donkey Kong's daughter. Anyone related to Donkey Kong is amazing.
Literally the opposite of overrated - darthvadern
No, I like him, besides he's very underrated like almost all of the RPG characters - darthvadern
Hammer Bro is the least underrated character of all time. That's coming from a Hammer Bro fan too. - RosalinaX
Overhated actually - darthvadern
Why does everyone think is is so good he is just a stupid star.
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.
No one even knows who she is anymore! - MarioBros11
Is He Even A Real Mario Character? Or Is He Just A Power-Up.
Not a real character - Randomator
This isn't even a CHARACTER... It's an amiibo...
Why didn't they just stick to Bowser? - MarioBros11
Villian of Super Mario Land - darthvadern
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. - DCfnaf
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.
