Strongest Mario Bros. Characters

The Top Ten

1 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.

No he is not the Strongest Mario Character. I know this because he is always bested by Mario in any battle.
There are many characters that are stronger than Bowser like Roy Koopa.

Umm... Bowser doesn't have the power to destroy the multiverse and re-write it in his image whilst being 100% invincible against everything except a specific set of artifacts.

Bowser is the strongest can be the best Mario character in a death battle out of all the Mario Characters he is around the same power of Mario when they are at there full potential the only time mario actually truly killed bowser was in new super Mario bros when bowser fell in lava and not even his magic could save him bowser is undefeated in Mario party island tour bowser partly always loses to mario because he likes fighting with him as a rival bowser has had plenty of opportunities to kill mario but he holds back so that he can continue the competition and rivalry

With a king koopa, Bowser with his rocking mind, with koopa children and the head of a devil, Mario would be screaming to his mommy because of this beast princessnapper.

2 Mario Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super ...read more.

Mario is superhuman and a donkey Kong is a super gorilla which makes him twice as strong as Mario. Donkey Kong has tougher smash attacks and he has lifted 100 million tons at full potential it is obvious he is stronger and more durable than Mario. Donkey Kong weighs 800 lbs and he is athletic that is 4 times heavier than Mario and donkey Kong has more muscle mass. But Mario has enough other advantages compared to him. Mario is a little faster and more agile and his skills are better than donkey Kong. He has more intelligence and always outmatches donkey Kong. Mario would still beat him with out his power ups he has more skill full move sets and fighting styles in the super smash bros games. He would burn and launch donkey Kong hard in a battle. Mario should be higher on the list.

Bowser is tougher and stronger than Mario. Bowser can lift more weight than Mario and has more destructive smash attacks bowser weighs a ton. Mario is a super human and bowser is a super giant turtle. Mario is a little faster than him and more agile bowser is an idiot and has weaknesses. Mario has more skills in his fighting styles and moves in super smash bros games. Bowser could cut him and burn him but Mario is skillful enough to beat him even without power ups. What bowser does with his own abilities are transforming and teleport. Mario could go invincible with the stars and capes but some of that comes from his own power.

Mario is so powerful he has the ability to be so well balanced with the best combination of strength speed power skills and durability. Mario has the most potential and he is amazing based on to be other famous Italian fighters who have potential. He is heavier than the average man and his weight comes more from his muscle than he looks he is kinda fat but he has a lot of strength speed durability and athleticism. His weight is 200 lbs same as Luigi Donkey Kong is 800 lbs wario is 308 lbs little Mac is 107 lbs. Mario comes has more muscle for his size and has special areas in his muscle that cause him to stronger than opponents larger. Donkey Kong little Mac and wario are stronger and more durable than Mario. Mario could run faster and jump higher than donkey Kong and wario. Luigi and Mario are pretty equal overall. Mario is a lot shorter but skinnier and more athletic and that makes sense that he is faster. But it’s also about skill he has too much of an advantage in his skills. ...more

Mario has enough advantages against Donkey Kong to be higher on the list he has enough of an advantage in speed, skill, smarts, and powers to counter Donkey Kong’s strength and durability. Mario can run and dodge faster and jump higher he is strong enough to lift 60 million tons and he is very durable he would use different skills and styles and tricky attacks that would make him better at hand to hand combat he has a higher ranking in all the super smash bros games on the tier list. Mario beats him every time there power ups are even he outmatches him in other ways. Also if mike Tyson can beat donkey Kong and little Mac can beat Mike Tyson in pinch out than Mario can certainly beat Donkey Kong. Put him higher on the list he is one of the best fighters in his franchise.

3 Donkey Kong Donkey Kong is an arcade game released by Nintendo in 1981. It is an early example of the platform game genre, as the gameplay focuses on maneuvering the main character across a series of platforms while dodging and jumping over obstacles.

DK is strong,no lie, but is not as powerful as the king of koopas. Bowser has the powers of black magic, turning people into stone, bricks, and plants, he can create castles and fortresses from his palm effortlessly, he can take over the universe if Mario did not exist, can control the power of the stars when in his possession, has multiple fleets and koopa kids to back him up. He even has access to advanced technology that overwhelms his opponents,he has battle ships,bullet bills, lava traps, thwomps, whomps, and skewers. He can also breathe fire in many forms. Blue fire homes in on you, his meteor fireballs, destroys the surrounding area, regular fireballs, his fire bomb(i like to call it) shoots out many different variations of his fire abilities, and if you beat him to bones, he ain't done yet, he turns into dry Bowser, which is bigger, stronger, and harder to beat. Good luck against that DK. I would say the one thing holding Bowser back from world domination is his lack of ...more

PSSH he will kill bowser with a flick of his TIE he is Number One but he should be in the top 3

Donkey Kong is strong enough to punch moons

Gorrilla are strong donkey is better than bowser bowser should die

4 Wario Wario is a character in Nintendo's Mario series who was originally designed as an antagonist to Mario. His motives are driven by greed and he will take the side of whoever will give him the most pay. Although he may seem like just a mean man with no heart, he does have a very tragic past.

Wario is half invincible, he can dash forward and not be able to be damaged. His fats are also deadly and if he eats garlic he can beat Mario.

He can even unconsiounize Daisy in one hit... Just because she beat Bowser with a single slap doesn't mean she can do it to Wario as well

Wario is impressive but he is certainly not the best he lost to king dedede in death battle

Wario Asked a genie to be immortal once I think so he should be high on the list. Also he farts.

5 Princess Rosalina

"She can just erase or restart the universe. She can create black holes with the palm of her hands (Smash bros her side c smash). She is literally mario's universal god"

Rosalina is the most powerful character in the mario series and nearly all games. She can erase and restart the universe and possibly do more.

Well, Rosalina isn't a princess because she was never referred to as one, nor does her role in Super Mario Galaxy fit the dictionary term. Though it could be used figuratively "she is such a princess", maybe to the Lumas. So I think it's best that the "Princess" term removed from her name.

She is omnipotent with great capacity of knowledge of the universe, even explaining how the cycle functions to Mario at the end of Galaxy.

She is the "goddess" of the Mario universe, and even wiser and more powerful than all the demon kings existed. And her love and self-confidence will not be shaken anymore. Maybe she is more suitable than Peach to be with Bowser that who wants to build up a family, "father" of the lumas & "mother" of Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings.

6 Luigi Luigi is a 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 franchise, ...read more.

Luigi is really powerful and tremendous and should definitely be higher on this list as well explained why he is as good as Mario it is hard to decide how the tie should break. Luigi has beaten every enemy Mario has beaten he does have better rankings overall in all of the super smash bros games. Luigi could be at the top of the list.

In super paper mario, he has that square thing inside him (forgot what it’s called) that pretty much holds the universe together. If he could harness that power, he would be unstoppable

Luigi is more powerful than bowser, donkey Kong and wario. Luigi has the ability to lift castles and outrun trains he has special skills like his move sets and power ups.

He has stronger legs than his bro and the super jump punch is a near insta-kill to anybody when landed correctly. He has the strength to run on water for a while and can lift a 20billion pound castle just like Mario. He has the power of electricity and learned the thunder hand from the thunder god himself. Luigi also has the ability to move and manipulate people and objects with this strength. If that's not enough for you, he has also learned a few fire techniques like Mario,just not half as much, and made his own, green, floaty version of it. He can ram into people using his head, and has his poltergeist 5000 to help him suck up his foes. He is very over-powered, yet stuck under his bro's shadow. Why? Because his only weakness is his cowardliness.

7 Roy Roy Koopa is one of the seven Koopalings. In the DIC cartoons Roy is called Bully Koopa. Roy has a tough guy demeanor, but wears pink which is most likely a reference to real men wear pink. Roy also wears hot pink sunglasses and from an angle it looks like he has no eyes.

He was in Super Smash Bros 4 before the Roy of Fire Emblem and is the favorite Roy of Sakurai.

No more like boy boopa

8 Princess Toadstool (Peach)

Peach is the strongest because she uses her emotions to use her powers instead of using a wand like rosalina, and she doesn't need a star to be invincible. She can fly and also is probably the prettiest of the princesses. It truly matters where the powers come from because some characters use items where as peach can use her powers that she has herself.

Peach is 1 easily. I'm not sure what this is but Miyamoto said Peach had a 1v1 fight with Bowser and won in canon. The only reason Bowser can kidnap her is because he brings the whole army. Donkey Kong once made the mistake of attempting to kidnap her without any allies and they battled. Peach won with very minor effort and DK had almost all of his bones broken. I wonder if Mario knows her true power - Unnamed Google User Remade

Peach is incredibly powerful, and yes she beat bowser once, but even then she had help from the vibe powers and perry. Mind you, bowser mostly relied on the vibe scepter during the battle, meaning he wasen't using much of his own power. Peach beat the vibe scepter, not him. Keep in mind bowser has actually whooped most of the main cast's butts in combat. Even mario has lost to him on occasion. Yes, peach has helped defeat bowser before, but in all of those instances, she never directly joined the battle. She just gave mario more power. She never fought herself. If she was as powerful as you say, she wouldn't be kidnapped so often. She would just do what she did in BIS (which she likely only did because she knew he wouldn't retaliate).

Peach is the strongest. Peach have: telekinesis, teleportation, flying/levitation, healing, fire manipulation, rainbow manipulation, heart manipulation, peaches (the fruit) manipulation, wind manipulation and star manipulation. Peach have the spell mute which can disable and power/magic. Peach have a power called peach blossom which makes everyone near her sleeps and summons peaches.

Peach also have an ability called freeze frame which freeze all objects and stop/freeze anyone near her.

Peach also have the power (empress peach) which is really power, she make angelic wings and a big light-ish halo-like crown and then hit the ball and make 2 more balls. Peach is also one of the star children who said to have a lot amount of power. Peach is also a ligh hero. She can mind control as shown in PMTTYD. And can resurrect. She can make explosions by her power psych bomb where she can make bombs out of nowhere. Peach have the power of summoning.

Peach also have white magic ...more

9 Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. He is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi and Mario franchises.

Trick for ssbu
Go to edge of map, turn around, then wait for player to jump in front of you. Press b. If done correctly, your opponent will fall into the abyss below in an egg.
[Only works with low levels, high damage, or/and noobs

I played as yoshi in super smash bros ultimate and I was Vs bowser and I won but how is yoshi weaker than bowser.

Yoshi is the Ultimate god of the Mario Universe

Yoshi is strong cause he is a dinosaur

10 Boom Boom

This character is so powerful. It can go invisible!

He's top tier can probably murder Dimentio

trash guys This

The Contenders

11 Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. He is the youngest son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

He was chucking giant cannon balls in Paper Jam.

12 King K Rool King K. Rool is a fictional anthropomorphic crocodile and the main antagonist of Nintendo's Donkey Kong video game franchise, as well as the archenemy of Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.
13 Waluigi Waluigi is a lanky self-centered, brusque young lad as he is considered evil and the main rival of Luigi. Waluigi is shown causing local havoc in most games he appears in alongside his partner Wario. Waluigi is not instinctively evil or the antagonist (not counting DDR), as a matter of fact, he shows ...read more.

He murdered Bowser instantly in Mario Party 3. He is therefore #1. Just look at how he plays tennis. He's so powerful they had to keep him as an assist trophy in Smash Bros.

Waluigi should be Number one Waluigi is more powerful than anyone

He is the one who rivals shaggy's power

He only has strong legs not arms

14 Dimentio Dimentio is an evil harlequin magician and the main antagonist of the 2007 Nintendo Wii video game known as "Super Paper Mario". One of his notable features is that he has created his own Dimension, known as Dimension D.

Dimentio was nearly able to destroy all worlds, just to Create perfect new ones Which he would rule, he wrote the very prophecy Which he made to make him rule all world. he is clearly the most powerful Mario character and one of the most powerful characters in all of fiction.

Dimentio could defeat pretty much anyone on this list. As Super Dimentio, without the Pure hearts, he's completely undefeatable. Bowser doesn't stand a chance agaisnt Dimentio, nor does Boom Boom. (Who's above him for some stupid reason.)

Dimentio, specifically, Super Dimentio, should easily be first. Bowser is at top spot right now but bear in mind that without the Pure Hearts, Mario, Peach, Bowser, and the Pixls put together couldn't even touch him. Proof to me that he wins.

Dimentio literally almost destroyed all of the dimensions in Super Paper Mario, and since this guy has the power to destroy the universe, he should be higher on this list! Of course, he didn't do it alone. He used Luigi's power too, so Luigi should also be very high on the list as well.

15 Birdo Birdo is a dinosaur that is well known for her (or his) confused Gender. It was originally stated that Birdo was a male who believed he was a female, but this was changed in later games. Birdo is commonly referred to as a girl, however, they are in a relationship with Yoshi. Birdo first appeared in ...read more.
16 Princess Daisy Princess Daisy is a fictional character in the Mario series of video games, in which she is the princess of the fictional region of Sarasaland. ...read more.

Rosailina uses her wand to do magic. Peach uses her emotions. but daisy dosen't need a wand or loads of toads to protect her. She can slap bowser away with her own hands. And she is super tough, if I were you, I would not want to get in her way! (unless you want to get slapped to the moon like bowser)

While she isn't on Mario's level, she is quite powerful. While she isn't as physically strong as bowser and doesn't have as much magic as Zelda, you cannot underestimate her.

If Daisy can slap Bowser 1000s of miles away AND is strong and tough already being a tomboy, she can easily make the number one spot.

Peach knocked bowser away with her parasol. Not with her two hands!

17 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.

Fawful has once wielded the Dark Star that's gotta put him high on this list

18 Metal Mario
19 Count Bleck Count Bleck, true name Lord Blumiere, is the central antagonist turned anti-hero of the 2007 Nintendo Wii videogame Super Paper Mario.

Count Bleck is the creator of the chaos heart and the void. The void was an inter-dimensional rift in the fabric of space time destined to destroy the multiverse. Only the power of 8 pure hearts could stop the chaos heart and destroy the void. A lot of people thought Dimentio was more powerful than a Count Bleck, because after Count Bleck was defeated, Dimentio stole the Chaos Heart and fused it with himself and Luigi (who was the perfect host for the chaos heart) to become Super Dimentio. However, if we look at their stats, we find that Super Dimentio, despite being a fusion of Dimentio, the chaos heart, and Luigi, was still only as powerful as Count Bleck. Super Dimentio has 200 health, Count Bleck does 8 damage. It would take Count Bleck 25 hits to destroy Super Dimentio. Count Bleck has 150 health, and Super Dimentio does 6 damage. It would take Super Dimentio... 25 hits to destroy Count Bleck! Their equal, despite Dimentio having literally fused himself with Luigi and the chaos ...more

He nearly destroyed the universe

Bowser is currently at the top of the list. To compare them, a quote from Super Paper Mario.

Bowser: “Hey, here's a thought: you calm down and free the princess... OR ELSE!"

Count Bleck: “Bleh heh heh heh... Your princess shall NOT be returned...by Count Bleck. In fact, Bowser, evil king of the Koopas...Count Bleck will take you, too!"

And then he did. Effortlessly, he kidnapped the kidnapper. How ironic. You can’t consider bowser, in any way, more powerful than Count Bleck.

20 Ludwig Ludwig Von Koopa is a villain in the Super Mario Franchise. He is the self-proclaimed leader of the Koopalings and has a pompous and arrogant personality. He is said to have all the powers of the other six Koopalings. He can clone himself, cause earthquakes, teleport, and shoot lightning bolts from ...read more.

He is powerful, can shoot a follow bolt, can shoot 4 bolts at same time, can flutter jump, and can turn into 3!

Tied with Roy and Iggy for most powerful Koopaling, you should not mess with this kid.

21 Vivian

Who in the World is vivian

22 King Boo King Boo is the leader of all the Boos, and the main antagonist in both Luigi's Mansion and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

Hands down he is the most powerful character of all. He is the master of illusions and was able to capture and beat mario multiple times. Aside from that there is a theory saying King Boo is also possesing Bowser which just goes to show how powerful he really is.

King Boo possessed the current most powerful character on this list.

23 Goomba Goombas, known in Japan as Kuribo, are a species of sentient mushrooms from Nintendo's Mario franchise.

Goomba is so powerful in some games like super sluggers and Mario party he can simply move stuff around him with telekinesis like the bat and cups for mini games and etc. Most of all he can adapt to anything like how he can breathe underwater in almost all games and can survive almost all weather conditions. He has been across the entire Mario universe demonstrated in Super-Mario Galaxy 1&2. He has also been in other games like legend of Zelda and minecraft (as a texture pack). Not only can he display adaptive abilities to his surroundings he can also wear power ups like mario (tanooki leaf). He is so powerful that if he really wanted to, he could destroy the entire universe in almost a couple of years. But for some weird reason, he lets Mario kill him over and over again. The reason is unknown to us, but it is well known to them.

Goomba is no doubt the strongest Mario enemy. You see I was playing NSMB until I saw a goomba. Big mistake. The goomba killed me. Goomba could easily take down bowser, but is kind enough to help him. I mean goomba could beat MAGIKARP, the most OP Pokemon there is!

Goomba thinks that bumping into Mario can defeat him but nope. Why is Goomba on this list? He's the weakest Mario character.

24 Kamek Kamek is a common enemy in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He usually appears in New Super Mario Bros. Games, Super Mario Bros. Games, or other similar games. He also appears in spinoff titles, like Mario Party, in which he is not a playable character but creates an obstacle for the players on their way ...read more.

Kamek is a powerful wizard who incrased the size and strength of his master bowser and also makes powerful spells to stop the menace mario and some worked like disguising as prince peach.

Underrated character

25 Gold Mario

Mario but with more durability and most likely strength.

It can transform every character into Coins
