Therandom

2 Mario always saves the day while Luigi just helps

Luigi's mansion

In every Mario game that happens

mario

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.

Extremely 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

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.

Dante; Nope Luigi is this list sucks.

10 Luigi has the same abilities Mario does

Not exactly but very similar - Randomator

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?!?!?!

Does Mario flutter jump? I didn't think so.

? Mario has a better color red when Luigi has a terrible color green

The Contenders

11 Luigi is ugly

Looks don't matter - ParkerFang

what?! - DJCosmic

LUIGI AND MARIO LOOK THE SAME.THEY BOTH HAVE MOUSTACHES!

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 is nice to Luigi but Luigi is nasty

Luigi jumped on him in super Mario bros 3 and super smash bros melee

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

14 Mario always saves Peach, Toad and Yoshi

I agree completely thanks for hlp on essay by the way

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 Mario has better Smash Moveset than Luigi’s in Smash 64 and Smash 4
20 Luigi has fewer games

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

Because he’s not the main character - Randomator

21 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.

22 Mario has more friends

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

23 Luigi is boring

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

24 Mario is a symbol of hope and optimism

Mario isn't crippled by fear or frustration

25 Mario is not a coward

Why because fear is weak

26 Mario is a better person

Mario is kind, courageous, resourceful, and always puts himself before others
Luigi is a sniveling coward who would rather stay in his comfort zone than do things for the good of humanity
