Luigi is love, Luigi is life

2 Just for one princess he kills many innocent people controlled by Bowser

Mario gets a sentence to court yet:
Crash Bandicoot kills normal crabs!
Sonic destroys robot armor that robotnik made for animals and scares them away!
In Grand Theft Auto you kill innocent people!
In skyrim you kill goats!
But no! Mario gets it because he was slightly stepping on luigis foot! Also The "innocent people" controlled by bowser try to kill you! Mario is very kind. Even though he can't talk, he stands up for luigi in Partners in time and calls him Number One in luigis mansion dark moon! People who say Mario is not a hero are just lackeys jealous of how well his games sell!

That's becaues the people who were controlled by bowser just wants to kill you. - MorlaTurtle8

Sure, if you do nothing, they kill you, but that's because they can't help it. They're not trying to kill Mario. They're just minding their own business and doing what they do best. - Villainnumberone

Who said they were innocent? If you do nothing, they KILL you. Idiots.

3 Likes to fight nice characters

Since when does he fight nice characters he doesn't. - MorlaTurtle8

What kind of list is this? Mario is not Mental for the last time! He is not a bad guy, he doesn't abuse Yoshi, he just points his finger and he is not mean to Luigi! He is also not mean to any nice characters. SO SHUT UP WHOEVER CREATED THIS LIST. LET'S SEE HOW MANY HATE THIS COMMENT GETS GAME THEORY FANBOYS.

Have you all watched Game Theory talking about why Mario is mental? Well, don't believe that Mario being evil is actually true because it may or may not be how Nintendo made him. Remember what Matthew Patrick says! THAT'S JUST A THEORY, A GAME THEORY! THANKS FOR READING! (I honestly think Mario's a good guy. )

In the game super Mario world Mario points and besides the game makers made it so you had to sacrifice Yoshi think about that before you mess with Nintendo's mascot

The Yoshi dropping into a pit was actually an exploit. So the creators never intended for Mario to do this. But yeah, this list is stupid. - DCfnaf

Curse you, carlsagan95. - Brazencoronet17

What? no he doesn't - MorlaTurtle8

He doesn't punch Yoshi, he points where he should lick. It looks like punching because the graphics aren't that realistic. IT WAS THE SNES, PEOPLE. - Garythesnail

You know yoshi Mario grabs his neck to lick - littlemachine

5 He steals all the coins in the Mushroom Kingdom

So what? Luigi and Blue toad And Yellow toad do steal coins in order to buy an extra life and including Peach in super mario 3D world. - MorlaTurtle8

Mario CAN BUY 1extra life for 100coin just imagine what happen if u can't buy extra life u just gonna only survive with 3 life only and there's over 30 level in this game

Actually he buys a 1 up mushroom with 100 coins in practically every Mario game

I think there's a political joke in there somewhere. - Thifer20

6 He is a drug addict

Big funny, big funny

This is so stupid I voted for it

Some of these are stolen from Nicobbq.

What? - MorlaTurtle8

7 Eats live mushrooms

So do Luigi and Blue toad and Yellow toad and plus there not living mushrooms. - MorlaTurtle8

Mario is a shroom lover

You know the mushroom it has eyes on it ITS LIVE - littlemachine

So your name is little machine. Would this little machine be your BRAIN? - DCfnaf

He is on drugs! Oh crap! - kitten2015

8 He is vengeful

He was using Donkey Kong as a circus act and treated DK creully. He is indeed vengeful. - Brazencoronet17

If an ape stole your girl, why wouldn't you lock it up? It could be dangerous! Plus, DK JR chose to save DK

He locked up the old donkey kong because he took a princess forcing donkey kong jr his son to save him plus its worst then what the old donkey kong did.

How would you feel if an ape stole your girl

9 Destroys castles

Destroying the castles is a good thing not a bad thing.

This list is terrible! He's getting rid of the enemy camps! You know, like MANY OTHER GAMES! What do you mean a toad could live there? IN A CASTLE? They have multiple homes at Toad Town! - DCfnaf

Destroying the Lemmy, Roy, Ludwig, Morton, Wendy, Larry, and the Iggy airship and Bowser's castle was not a contemptible thing. This list was like an idiot from the start.

Not a good reason because who would live in a spooky castle with crashing dangerous block with some heat lava and spooky boos

10 Cheats in Mario Kart by using shells

So do Sonic and crash bandicoot but they use their own items so they also should get the blame

What a terrible list all the characters use shells to. - MorlaTurtle8

This list is terrible. Shells are part of the game. Poor Mario. You keep accusing him of nothing

CHEATS? This list is terrible. TERRIBLE. Shells are part of the game. Everyone else uses shells, idiots.

11 Does survival parties

What A stupid reason how does that make him A villian. - MorlaTurtle8

I would survive living! We have video games, what's not to celebrate?! (Ok probably lots of things but don't respond listing a million reasons or any reasons at all)

Well that’s nintendo’s Fault

What is wrong with celebrating survival - Nateawesomeness

12 He murders Yoshi

What an awful list since when did he murders Yoshi? - MorlaTurtle8

The game brutal Mario has Mario killing everyone! Why did he forgot to kill yoshi!

Again the player makes Mario do this. - nintendofan126

This is the player's choice. Plus Brutal Mario is a fan game. - DCfnaf

13 Lets Bowser get Peach

So you are saying that he lets Bowser kiddnap Peach that is a camplete fales. - MorlaTurtle8

He doesn't let her! And if that's true, Luigi and the Toads do this also. - DCfnaf

What I like peach

Mabey she wants to be with him

V 5 Comments
14 He is seen to have Wario as a greedy relative so Mario is greedy in some way

No he is not relative to Wario and wheres the proof. - MorlaTurtle8

He acts like a * to Wario. - Brazencoronet17

Actually, if Mario gets 100 coins, he gets an extra life. Plus, they're a theory that Wario is just a crazed Mario fan.

If they were related, just being relatives doesn't mean you're both greedy! These reasons stink!

15 He has many girlfriends, and he wants more so that probably tells you he's not a hero because he only does quests if Peach or Daisy is captured

No those airn't Mario girlfriends he just doing what he have to do save them just because he saves them that doesn't mean he want to kill them. - MorlaTurtle8

Mario needs to get used to being in Archie Comics spin-offs.

Mario only has one girlfriend: Daisy. you might be thinking "Daisy is Luigi's girlfriend" but Luigi never appeared with Daisy in the same Mario platformer. and Rosalina has more traits of Peach than of daisy and Rosalina's father owns a telescope. and Luigi owns a telescope. so Rosalina is the daughter of Luigi and Peach. Peach chose Luigi over Mario. Pauline is Mario's mother. - Villainnumberone

Actually, he only has two girlfriends: Peach and Pauline. Daisy is Luigi's girlfriend, Rosalina doesn't have a boyfriend, and nobody else has a boyfriend.

16 Bumps players while racing

So how does that make him a villain? all characters do it. - MorlaTurtle8

Wow. This evidence is so great. It's not like EVERY OTHER CHARACTER DOES IT TOO - DCfnaf

So does everyone else.

All the characters in Mario kart do this. - nintendofan126

17 He will sometimes fool around and kill things like baby Yoshi and Baby Penguins

The person playing the game makes Mario do this. - nintendofan126

Who killed Yoshi and the baby penguin? YOU!

That's because they CHOSE to do that... - Garythesnail

The player does this not Mario - PaperMarioFan

18 Mario is a serial killer

Not a good reason. - MorlaTurtle8

I wouldn't say he's a serial killer, because he probably doesn't know that those bricks are actually toads. A serial killer would know that they were killing people.

He is a serial killer because in the original Super Mario Bros. Game, it was written in the manual that Toads were trapped and transformed into brick blocks. You know what this mean? It means that every time Mario destroys bricks with his fist, one toad is killed. So yes, Mario is a serial killer. You probably got that from Nicobbq's video on YouTube "Mario is NOT a hero! "

Mario never killed anybody. - PaperMarioFan

19 He's cruel to the Koopalings

Its because they trie kill Mario. - MorlaTurtle8

They are BOSSES dumbass!

Because they're villains.

Bowser isn't cruel he just wants attention and I said a good father. Mario isn't cruel either.

20 Mario dumped Daisy

Since when? - MorlaTurtle8

They weren't a couple to began with!

Daisy deserve way more than Mario

Who cares? I think the Daisy Fans are just angry! - DCfnaf

Or maybe Daisy broke Mario's heart and fell in love with Luigi! NO EVIDENCE IS PROVIDED HERE. Man I was a jerk half a year ago! Why don't they post the dates for these comments? - DCfnaf

21 He killed baby apes!

I love Mario games released in the late 20th century, especially Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World series, the Super Mario Land trilogy and Super Mario 64 (one of the best games ever besides the Metal Gear franchise, Pac-Man World 1 for the PS1, Donkey Kong Country SNES games/Donkey Kong: Jungle Climber and etc...).

And Mario is my favorite mascot (Archie Andrews and Barbie being my least favorite mascots, even worse than Modern Sonic and Bubsy) who is a villain?! I know that, he should respect animals!

In the old games he was doing it

He didn't kill any character. - DCfnaf

He is a Smash Bros. character, right? Doesn't he kill a bunch of Nintendo characters?

22 Mario is a pervert



What the hell people, I've never seen him rape peach, this list is

23 In Super Mario 64 DS, he always takes on Bowser alone, and never allows anyone else to come with

Idiot can't you play as wario luigi and yoshi jeez jerk


24 Luigi came in a hot air balloon, and Mario gets in and leaves him behind

I don't think this makes him evil, but it was still kind of a jerk move. - Garythesnail

If only there was an alternate universe where Daisy flew down in another hot air balloon and took Luigi with her :(

Uh...NO! Luigi closed the door for them and the balloon floats away! Wasn't Mario's fault or Peach's! - DCfnaf

Actually I agree with this one because Luigi was reaching to get in but they fly away

25 Mario kills animals, toads, etc.

1.) the animals are enemies so he has no choice
2.) How the hell was mario supposed to know about the toads in bricks?
3.) The player makes Mario do the actions.

26 He turns the wrong way in all Mario Karts

How does this not make him a hero? - nintendofan126

Oh gosh! Not speeding tickets! - TwilightKitsune

And thank you Nintendo fan

So does everyone else.

27 He's very similar to Axel Chains

Who is Axel Chains - Pony

He is from Your Favorite Martian. He should be the guitarist, not the drummer of YFM!

28 He kills cheep cheeps, who are (usually) innocent

In Super Mario 3D Land after reaching World 7 one of the enemies shown chasing Peach is a Cheep Cheep so they are evil

Nope they are technically enemies

How is that the cheep cheep's fault?

If you touch one you die

29 He is very stupid on purpose

He is the meanest guy on earth

Who sed Mario is stupid?

Mean and stupid? I've never seen Mario been meen and stupid oh wait I've seen so many Times being mean and stupid IN FANMADE VIDEOS!

30 He doesn't even do his job as a plumber.

Does anyone remember Mario Bros.? The arcade game? They did plumbing in Superstar Saga, too. - Garythesnail

LOL good one but how about he dumped itching powder in luigi's trousers

Luigi doesn't do it either. - nintendofan126

Mario and his brother do theas thing for wemon

31 He abused Donkey Kong before his debut as Jumpman.

Game Theory has too many fanboys! There's a difference between fan and fanboy:

Fan - Someone who likes a person or character and understands if people don't like them (ex. Wario is my favorite Mario Character, but I do know people will not agree because he's fat and greedy)

Fanboy - Someone who is obsessed with a person or character and doesn't seem to understand there are issues (ex. People don't understand that "Mario is Mental" is a joke video because it was made by Game Theory) - DCfnaf

Seriously, guys, game theories doesn't know everything! Jumpman is not Mario's father! And Pauline is not Mario's mother!

It is actually highly likely. However I don't think that Mario ends up dating Daisy. - DCfnaf

Bad one of a million

Jump man is Mario's dad that mean he didn't attack DK + that means that girl from DK was his mother,that's mean in Mario vs DK he was save he's mother from DK

32 He directly caused Wario to be the way he is

How? Wario acts the way he does BECAUSE HE WAS NOT GIVEN A PROPER HOME. - DCfnaf

33 He makes Wario and Waluigi outcasts

Wario and Waluigi are evil, they try to do rude things to the good guys! God these reasons are stupid and make no sense

Mario used to bully wario as a child - Dvafan2

34 He takes all the credit for his adventures

He does. Its total madness! Luigi and everyone should be mad at Mario and take revenge by bringing him on an adventure and not give Mario any credit!

He’s the main character, the leader! And whenever the person that got rescued or got help from the Mario group, they always go to Mario! Geez people pay attention to the games!

35 In Super Mario 64 DS, he never thanks Yoshi for saving him


36 Mario doesn't thank Player Two Luma for his/her help in Super Mario Galaxy 2

What if you don't play with a second player? - DCfnaf


37 He reads Luigi's diary in Paper Mario

Just an invasion of privacy. How come no one thinks of this one? - Mamaluigi22

I'm pretty sure that luigi is understand that Mario just read his diary for good reasons

Best Paper Mario Games

Top 1. Super Paper Mario (10/10)
Top 2. Paper Mario (9.5/10)
Top 3. Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (9/10)
Top 4. Paper Mario: Sticker Star (4/10)

I'd put Thousand Year Door over Regular Paper Mario but it's your List! - DCfnaf

You made Mario read it.

38 He doesn't chase after Donkey Kong when he breaks free in Donkey Kong 3.

This was mantled by Stanley the bugman when Mario was in the sewers with his brother luigi in 1983

The list contradicts itself. Earlier it said Mario was mean to DK by caging him and now it says he should've went after him. - DCfnaf

39 In Super Mario 64 DS, He comes in big boo's haunt ALONE!

With the Monster books?! REALLY?!

How does that make him evil? Idiot. - GamingGoku757

1.he needs to go their because their are stars their,and you need stars to save peach,2.he saves luigi their also - Nateawesomeness

1. You could play as Yoshi.

2. Mario needs to rescue Luigi. - DCfnaf

40 He loathes Archie Comics

When and how? - VideoGamefan5

41 Mario Likes Potty Humor

When has he ever said or laughed at a potty joke? Idiot

42 Mario will take steroids

Why he steals coins

43 He invites Luigi's enemy Waluigi to kart race and party with him

So being nice is evil now? Logic my friends

I love it when he do this!

Idiot so what Mario also invites his enemies Bowser jr Bowser iggy wendy donkey kong wario lemmy and others what an idiot so what so you can play as them jeez

He also invites his own enemies, Wario and Bowser. - Garythesnail

44 He harms Wigglers who never (unless they are angered) intend to harm him

The Wiggler in Sunshine was preventing the legendary sand bird from hatching. The Wiggler in 64 got angry at Mario and TRIED TO KILL HIM. - DCfnaf

You know what touch one as small Mario and see what happens idiot even when there happy

Wigglers hurt him.

Mario is stupid on purpose - TopLucas

45 He never sticks up for Luigi when people forget his name in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Let's fast forward to Bowser's Inside Story. In that game, there's an optional fight with 3 Shroobs. After it, Starlow insults Luigi and calls him a crybaby, and Mario tells her Luigi was brave and heroic. - Garythesnail

Not a good reason

46 He shows no remorse when he does something wrong

One example please. - DCfnaf

47 He doesn't invite many of his friends to events (such as Starlow, Toadsworth, Egad, many others)

But he invites MOST OF THEM.

E. Gadd is more of a Luigi character.

Toadsworth is playable in Super Mario Sluggers.

Starlow is an RPG character and is a jerk to Luigi. - DCfnaf

48 He doesn't put higher security by his toy line, leading to Pauline being kidnapped by Donkey Kong (more than once)

How is this his fault? - DCfnaf

49 He battles a Baby Piranha in SM Galaxy 2, which was only mad because Mario had landed on it

Luigi does this too, but I do agree it was sad. - DCfnaf

In order to get a star, you idiots.

50 He tried to kill donkey kong

Because Donkey Kong tried to kill him. - DCfnaf
