2 Mario always saves the day while Luigi just helps

In every Mario game that happens

Luigi's mansion


3 Luigi is a coward

Lol, where is danteem ranting? Anyway, Luigi's biggest role in player #2 and when he's actually a character he just screams and runs away while Mario does all the work. - ToptenPizza

The fact that he still saves the day when he is a coward makes him courageous. Mario's like a cardboard box. No personality

@ visitor oh shut up! Have you ever played the Mario and Luigi series? Mario shows plenty of personality there. - nintendofan126

4 Mario cares for everyone

He shows no emotion.

Ever played Mario and Luigi games. When Luigi is in trouble Mario rescues him and he's panicked. - Therandom

He even cares for Bowser, Bowser Jr, Wario, and Waluigi. Do you think Luigi is like that?! - ZachMandoGames

Luigi always does what he can when he has to. So much ignorance.

5 Luigi is overrated

Very Overrated.

This should be number 1. He is the most overrated character I have ever seen. Or one of them.

Yes but overrated doesn't mean he's bad - ParkerFang

Extremely overrated

6 Luigi started off as player two

Yeah I agree

What a stupid reason. 2 is better than 1 anyway.

7 Mario won't run away unlike Luigi

Mario faces them head on; Luigi just runs away from his enemies.

Oh really? Then I guess you've never had friends playing the original NES and SNES games. - DJCosmic

Luigi faced his fear of ghosts to save Mario, I think this is awesome

Luigi is still a scaredy coward. - ZachMandoGames

This has never happened. Factually wrong.

8 Without Mario there would be no Wario

Wario is an awesome character. - Therandom

Wario is a terrible character so this is a very poor point for Mario.

Without Mario there wouldn’t be a Mario franchise so Without Mario there wouldn’t be a Luigi - Randomator

9 Mario is physically stronger

Has anyone ever played smash bros or Mario 64. Mario is stronger in both. - Therandom

it is true

Nope. Simply incorrect. I suggest doing some research.

This list sucks and Luigi can rip off Mario's head!

10 Luigi has the same abilities Mario does

Luigi can't flutter jump Yoshi can. He jumps higher and has worse traction than his bro.

Luigi can jump higher in most games. For people who voted for this DO YOU EVEN KNOW MARIO?!?!?!

Not exactly but very similar - Randomator

He’s known as being the shadow of Mario, and they’re brothers too. So of course they would have somewhat the same powers

The Contenders

11 Luigi is ugly

Looks don't matter - ParkerFang

what?! - DJCosmic


12 Luigi is too fast

Which means he actually takes longer to stop in the games - Randomator

That makes him better idiot

Actually his speed causes him to slide a little bit so he is harder to control

13 Mario Always Saves Peach, Toad and Yoshi

I agree completely thanks for hlp on essay by the way

14 Mario is nice to Luigi but Luigi is nasty

In new super mario bros u Luigi gets invited but in new super Luigi u mario deosnt

15 Mario is the main character

True without Mario Luigi wouldn’t exist - Randomator

16 Mario is stronger and faster

Luigi runs faster

And Luigi negative zone is stronger.

17 Mario has better traction

If you can beat the Japanese Mario 2 with Luigi without ragequitting from his awful traction, you might as well become a speedrunner for a living. Controlling him is almost impossible. - Zach808

18 Mario is better because he does most of the stuff
19 Luigi has fewer games

I'll admit that this is a dumb reason - Drawbox

Because he’s not the main character - Randomator

20 Mario is optimistic while Luigi is pessimistic.

Luigi doesn't have that charm Mario has. Do I think Luigi is overrated? No. Do I think Mario is underrated? Way too much.

21 Mario has more friends

He had more friends, until Game Theory ruined him. - ZachMandoGames

22 Luigi is boring

In most animations about mario, luigi always wins if you always win your boring

23 Mario is a symbol of hope and optimism

Mario isn't crippled by fear or frustration

24 Mario is not a coward

Why because fear is weak

25 Mario has better Smash Moveset than Luigi’s in Smash 64 and Smash 4
