Top 10 Best Super Mario Bros. Characters

Mario Bros. is a Nintendo video game franchise featuring their iconic character Mario. The series' first installment was Mario Bros. and its successor Super Mario Bros. is credited with launching the franchise into global success.
The Top Ten
1 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.

Just because Mario is the main character you don't have to like him. Yoshi is my favourite he is soooo cute so it's good to see him1 on this list. I don't even like Mario he just wants to be famous plus if it wasn't for Yoshi Mario wouldn't be HERE so respect Yoshi at least. I play as him EVERY time as well

Yoshi is an adorable and lovable character and adds an amazing touch to the franchise! Who doesn't love Yoshi! Cute and quite useful when it comes to those flutter jumps, he's a great character all around!

Yoshi is my favorite Mario character. Not because he is cute. He saved Mario and Luigi when they were babies. In my opinion, Middleweights are perfect for me because is has the right amount of speed and handling. If it wasn't for him, the Mario bros we all know and love wouldn't be here. Yoshi is friendly and caring. He loves to play w/ his friends. I don't like his fanbase though. Most of his fans love him just because he's adorable. Fanbase isn't even a reason to hate a character.

I am a Yosh Fan. Anyways he is the best character of the mario series in my life. mario kills Goombas while Yoshi still cared for Baby Mario. If is was one of the Yoshis I would Probably Kick Bowser off a cliff and just go on with my stupid things. Mario is a hero, but still kills animals. Yoshi only kills to protect Mario/Luigi/ Toads, not to be greedy.Yoshi is one of the most adorable Video game Characters ever to exist. I looked at 4 lists and Yoshi twice was on the top 3. One list was #14. I was kinda ticked off. Another was #25. Whoever put him on 25 should be banned from making lists.

2 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, often as a sidekick to his brother.

I love this guy soooooo much. He is very Overpowered if you think of it and he deserves more love. Just look at what he goes through! Mario just fights a love rival who kidnaps his love interest. Luigi fights villains that either want him dead, locked away in a painting, or to destroy the world. (I know mario helped him fight most of the villains but he did most of the work if you think about it. Mario couldn't fight King boo. And Mario needed Luigi to fight Antasma.) So Luigi is the best.

He is one of the best developed characters in the series and one of the only characters to earn his own official video game. He is also a really nice guy in general and a hero in his own right, ready to help others whenever he can, even if he is often perceived as a coward or usurped by others. Luigi is easily unnerved in comparison to other characters, and a bit of a daydreamer to boot. But it is the fact that he can surpass these aspects of himself that makes him one of the most admirable characters of this series. Clumsily lovable, he has a big heart and always tries to do the right thing. He's actually really op, though you wouldn't think it, and he is more endorsed in power and athletics than his older brother (jumps higher, can manipulate fire and electricity). Plus, with Luigi, his goals are often accomplished without much effort on his part. He's just that awesome. If you still aren't convinced, just check out his Mario Strikers theme. Come back here after that and say he ...more

Luigi is simply a god among other Mario characters, NO scratch that, among other VIDEO-GAMES characters, no, scratch even that, among other FICTIONAL character. Luigi is simply the best fictional character in existence. Nothing tops Luigi. Luigi is tough, strong, smart, sexy, and all the other good adjectives that exist. Everyone should bow down and worship Luigi every night and when waking up. Luigi should be worshipped like Kim Jong-Un and be we should be eternally grateful to have such a great video-game character. I feel insignificant living in the same planet he lives. Even if he's not real, for me, he IS real. I want to hug him and kiss me and be his personal slave master and let me do anything he pleases. We are not appreciative of Luigi enough. I propose we start a new religion: Luigism. Yes, I know it sound ridiculous but it's only right for a godly character like Luigi. WE need to spread Luigism around the world. Luigi teach us morals, how to be the BEST THING EVER. Luigi, I ...more

I like mario and luigi because they have a great brother relationship even tho they might tease each other but,all siblings do that.

3 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 Luigi U, Luigi's Mansion Games, Yoshi's Island Games, and similar counterparts. He is the most iconic character in video game history and is Nintendo's mascot. His franchise has grown to be the most successful franchise ever.

I know most people relate to luigi and that's why you voted him and people love yoshi because he's adorable and also helps mario. Well I relate more to mario than luigi because I'm the older sister and my sister is the younger one. I am better at doing stuff than her, I'm more popular than her, and I always like helping when I can just like mario. My sister is like luigi because she is a scardy cat, jealous, clumsy, and cares about her sibling just like luigi. Personally I think mario is as adorable as yoshi but in all I think every character is super cute and has a special place for me but I just think of mario as my best friend because we are alike. Mario number one! Let's a go!

Mario is just A great hero and never gives up. He is a leader and people who say he doesn't love luigi, I'm pretty sure he loves his own twin brother because in luigis mansion 3 , mario hugged his brother the first thing when he was free. He has to safe peach 22 times from bowser, which I bet he's tired but that's how much he loves her and the mushroom kingdom. He has pretty fun games. I really wish he was in 1st rank. Without mario I don't really thing their would be these other characters. Mario shows a great personality and should deserve love from peach. - Skittlez

I like mario and luigi because they have a great brother relationship even tho they might tease each other but,all siblings do that.

Mario is a franchise where there isn't really a character I dislike. Sometimes I hate on side bosses just cause they're annoying, but every character is charming and important in their own right. That's why it's hard to choose the best. Peach is the damsel in distress, ladylike but willing to step up and fight when needed. Luigi is goofy and cowardly, and has a well-developed personality that stole the hearts of lots of gamers. Bowser is the main antogonist, ambitious and obnoxious, but also has great design and drives the nostalgic Mario plot forward. There are so many characters I adore, even ones that appear once like Dimentio, for their clever dialogue and ability to add new things to the game. This is the reason I chose Mario. He's the main man, the one who started it all. He is a positive role model from our childhood memories, with his silly, energetic demeanor and his willingness to save the world over and over. He's reliable, and happily endures all the challenges he faces. ...more

4 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 appeared in the 1985 popular videogame, Super Mario Bros., in which he was responsible for kidnapping Princess Toadstool (more commonly known as Princess Peach), which was released in Arcades and on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Videogame System.

Ah, yes. Another great antagonist that is winless against their arch-nemesis (no seriously, Bowser is like 0-51 against Mario... the only chance that Bowser had was in the first Paper Mario game when he had the Star Rod, and even then, he almost won).

Bowser is one of the most misunderstood characters in Mario history. He's a man who has to control the army of the Koopa Kingdom, and possibly does not even want to capture the Princess, because he never specifies a reason why he does it. Another is how he has befriended Mario, Luigi, and the other characters, as seen when he joins for the ride in Mario Kart or Mario Party. He also is one of very few characters who actually has feelings. He cares for his son, and he wants him to have a mother as seen in Mario Sunshine. This dragon has feelings, a son, and one of the most compassionate people in the Mushroom Kingdom, even if sometimes he doesn't show it.

Why is my 2nd favorite Mario character at number 8? Seriously? Bowser under shy guy, toad, and the horrid Bowser Jr?! Bowser is the rightful ruler of the mushroom kingdom. He cares for his subjects much more than peach, who doesn't even seem to care that the curse of the brick toads was never lifted. And Mario is just a fat, violent, and clueless patsy who abuses animals while inadvertently carrying out Peach's plans to rule the world. Bowser on the other hand, is a kind koopa who was brainwashed by kamek and even still, is nice to Peach, takes care of his "kids", and defends his castle. cut him some slack for being fed up with Mario and for not being smart enough to get rid of his switches. Bowser rules!

Bowser is easily the most well written character in the Mario series. The main games paint him as a powerful foe, but where he really shines is the Mario RPG games where he has the best personality. He is not only shown to be stronger than everyone whose not Mario, able to take them down faster than Mario himself (I.E. Rawk Hawk). He also, albeit inadvertently, helped Mario in cases like Bowser's inside story. He also willingly helps in Mario RPG and Super Paper Mario fleshing him out as much more than a simple villain.

5 Toad Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a major character in the Mario Bros. franchise. He assists Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom and will do whatever it takes to help her. He first appeared in the classic game, Super Mario Bros. after being kidnapped by Bowser and his minions. Since then he has been a reappearing character in the Mario Bros. series as a playable character in the New Super Mario Bros. series, Super Mario 3D World, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Super Mario Run, and many other games. He also appears as playable character in many Mario-spinoff games including the Mario Kart series, Mario Party games, Mario and Sonic Olympic Games, Mario Sports Games, and many more. ...read more.

Always liked Toad. He's fun, he's loyal and I love playing as him in Mario Kart and Mario Party. Sure his voice can be a big pain in the @$$ at times, but it hasn't always sounded like that (try playing Mario Kart: Super Circuit and the Nintendo 64 games). It's such a shame that he doesn't have his own color scheme in MK8 unlike Yoshi, Shy Guy and the Inklings. Both Blue Toad and Yellow Toad have major roles in the console platformers, so they could fit perfectly to be Toad's recolors (along with Green Toad and Purple Toad).

I don't care what people say about him. He will always remain my favorite Mario character regardless of what.

How is toad this low? I seriously don't understand why he's somewhat hated by some people! I mean, come on. What's there to hate about him? Because he tells you that the princess is in another castle while giving the finger? One, that's not toad, as his first appearance was in Super Mario Bros 2 according to the Mario wiki, and two, even if he was, it just makes the game harder and more fun, because without multiple worlds, the game can be boring, or not as fun at least. Because he has an annoying voice? Are you kidding me? Sure, his voice can be childish, but that's just what Toad's personality is.

Toad is extremely cute! Who wouldn't like him? Toad is kind, loyal, and funny! He helps Mario and Luigi and Peach! If you think that Toad is whiny and can't do anything for himself, you're looking at the wrong guy! Peach is perfectly capable of saving herself, but is too lazy too. Toad does all he can too help, but he is too small to do something really big. He just helps all he can!

Toad is THE BEST character in all of mario. He is nice to everyone, always tries to help the Mushroom Kingdom, always protects Princess Peach, (he hides in her dress in Smash Bros just so she can use him as a shield) goes on adventures with Mario and Luigi, is funny, and even has his own game! (Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker)

6 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 hilarious, mostly because of his voice and also because of the Mario Party games. From calling himself a wiener when he wins in Mario Party 6-8 to screaming "SO EIN MIST!" when he loses in the first game. And his Warioware games are pretty interesting too.

Wario is the best, if you look at his Wario Land character. In Wario Ware, things take a thing for the worse, and that is where we get disgusting Wario. I always here kids saying, "Oh, but he is fat." First off, Mario is overweight, but I don't see anyone annoying him but myself. Second, there is more to him. He is a horrible man, heck, in Wario Land 3, he helps a clown trying to enslave the whole earth,(though he defeats him), and I just love how he is in the orignal Wario Land, where instead of saving the princess, he tries to extort money out of her so he can buy a castle. After Mario Party, he went down the drain, and now he is Mr. Unhygenic. I want another Wario Land, in the Wario Land II style, so we can see who the real Wario is. If you read all that, then I am impressed, and hope my words leave an impact on you.

Guys, you may not believe this but MARIO was the one who started off as the mean person. Wario is SOOOO misunderstood. Wario may be evil only to teach Mario a
lesson. You ding - dongs that thought Mario was nicer are TOTALLY wrong. I have a strong belief that Wario should always be getting money at Christmas. He deserves it! Also, his name is a combination between Mario's name and the japanese term wauri, meaning bad. What kind of sense does that make? And remember when I mentioned those ding - dongs that voted Mario? Not only those people are ding - dongs, but the ones who voted Luigi and Yoshi are too! Sure they're nice, but Wario is even nicer! It's true; Yoshi sometimes (I have a belief in this) secretly hates Mario for riding on him, punching his head, and even for ditching him just to get over long pits! He even betrays Mario sometimes! How evil... Wario is NOT as mean as that. And I didn't forget to mention Luigi either! Art makes me feel better, so maybe just like Wario, he ...more

Thanks for changing the picture Admin! This picture is definitely better than the other one in my opinion! Anyways, the reasons I pick Wario over all the other characters?

1. He's gotten several roles throughout the series.
2. He's a badass antihero, but he's also lovable and hilarious.
3. He is way more interesting and developed as a character compared to Mario.
4. He's way more fun to play as.
5. He has a dark and tragic past that is overlooked. Play Yoshi's island DS.

This is my favorite video game character of all time. How could I not vote for him?

7 Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Franchise created by Nintendo. She first appeared in the 2007 Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy for the Nintendo Wii and later returned for the game's sequel in 2010. Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games and many spinoffs. She has appeared as a playable character in Super Mario 3D World for the Nintendo Wii U in 2013 and is a playable character in the Mario Kart series and Mario Party series. She also has come into Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS as a part of the large character roster.

Rosalina is one of the most amazing and majestic Mario characters in existence who can be seen as a motherly figure with revolving cute little Lumas. She is attractive with a nice calm and mature voice and wears a unique teal dress. Rosalina has a wand which grants her magical powers to perform abilities such as levitation, forcefields and even control a large beautiful comet observatory as a spaceship.

She is one of those rare gem characters representing the modern era, originating in a main game (Super Mario Galaxy) and actually has a back-story. In her beautiful story, due to her loving and caring nature; she assisted a 'strange creature' now known as a Luma in an attempt to find it's 'mama', even at the expense of her own family. Doesn't this say a lot about her character?

Even though Rosalina is still a relatively new character, she's beginning to appear in many more games, even making an entire playable appearance in a small roster of 5; in one of the most ...more

I love Rosalina! She's super smart and kind! I just don't like how Nintendo keeps putting her into games because it's changing her personality. Rosalina was quiet and reserved in the galaxy series, but know she's suddenly..smiling and cheering and in all the sports games and spinoffs. She isn't like peach or Daisy at all. Peach and Daisy are best friends and are in all the sports games and spinoffs. It's normal for them to be shouting and cheering. It's who they are. Rosalina doesn't fit with them. She isn't friends with them. She's friends with the Lumas not to mention their mom! She's different than Peach and Daisy and is supposed to be introverted and reserved. How can she be reserved when Nintendo is putting her into loud games?

Daisy fans just need to leave her alone. There's no way rosalina replaced her. Daisy has just been doing what she's been stuck in after SML. That has nothing to do with Rosalina. And by the way, rosalina is practically in the same boat is daisy now even after galaxy 2. She's only been stuck in spinoffs like daisy has, and that one wii game she isn't canon in it, as she's only playable after beating the game. So get over it, daisy fans!

I don't care about her looks (she is very pretty design wise though & light blue is my favorite color). I love her because she is sweet, caring, smart, mature, emotionally strong, & has a unique but tragic story.

She is like Knuckles the Echidna! Re: They are both top 4 since a long time on the Top 10 Best Mario/Greatest Sonic Characters, they are both power based despite being skinny, they are both extremely smart, they both could decide to release their perversion, they are tall as well as a little bit heavy in comparison to many other characters in their franchise, they both are very tough, they both got positive attention in general, they both are awesome, they both are forgotten, they both are extremely adorable, they both are usually humorous, & they both are generally 3rd playable characters in some gangs.

Rosalina should be top 1. She needed to replace Princess Peach in recent games like Mario Party DS, Fortune Street, Mario & Sonic at the Vancouver 2010/London 2012/Sochi 2014 Olympic Games.

8 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 must be a very smart child if he can build his own robots and machines to stop Mario. And I love seeing him having fun with his dad!

I'm glad Bowser Jr is NOT a koopaling. The last thing we need is for him to be "generic koopa #8 who flings glitter from his pixie stick." Bowser Jr is not only Bowser's right hand man, but he's Eggman! He builds and uses machines against Mario. Bowser Jr modified his junior clown car into a submarine! Bowser has never done this with his koopa clown car.

Bowser is for me a great vilain and I don't who is the mother but his son is even better. I heard that some people say he is stupid and I never understood why. I like how he is determined to beat Mario. Its like the kind of evil that only want the death of the protagonist unlike Bowser that is in love with Peach. Also, Bowser Jr is very agile as shadow Mario, is a strong mini boss in NSMB and he uses very powerful machines like my favorite mario boss of all time, Bowser Jr's boomsday machine. Plus, his battle theme in galaxy 1 and 2 is just fantastic.

Bowser Jr. has always been popular. His fans just weren't too vocal about it at first. Evidence of this includes what happened in Mario Kart 8. It was the same thing with Waluigi. Some believed Waluigi was pictured as unpopular. However, Waluigi being cut in MK7 created a backlash. Waluigi fans emerged from the shadows and demanded his return. The same thing happened with Bowser Jr. in MK8. By popular demand Jr.'s back in Deluxe and we're seeing a lot more love for the little guy.

9 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 great compassion for his fellow peers, typically for characters Daisy and Wario. Waluigi is also described as lonely, rejected, sad, or depressed due to his relationship with the Super Smash Bros. franchise, and people outside of Nintendo continually rejecting him. In recent years, people have come to Waluigi's defense, giving him support and even starting a cult following. In sum, Waluigi is the ...read more.

Nintendo misses out when they don't utilize Waluigi. Honestly, Waluigi has so much potential, and it's a pity no one even notices it. Waluigi could be a star and be an actual complex character if they chose to explore who Waluigi is. I know this will probably get thumbed down but, What is the appeal for Rosalina? Her backstory? Personality? To me Rosalina seems bland compared to Waluigi. Waluigi simply radiates personality. Of all the characters on this list all the comments have either low up-votes or negative votes. Waluigi may not be some noble archetype, but that's what I think makes him so lovable. He is mean, and revels in others misery, and even when he is in the midst of cheating, he will accuse someone else of cheating. Waluigi's cornerstone personality trait is self-pity and would step on anyone's toes to win. We all can personally relate to anti-hero/villain characters simply because they are the underdogs, and we see the struggles they go through, and perhaps can even ...more

It is not Mario time around here anymore it is WALUIGI time! He's had too much hate and it's his time to rise. Mario overrated! Luigis too whiny! Wario too fat and greedy! Waluigis probaly the most normal out of them all. I'm not saying Mario and luigi and wario arnt normal I'm just saying their slightly more odd. I woundnt judge him by his
Appearance because a lot of haters are judging him by his cover! But I don't do that with anybody. Like I thought I was gonna hate diddy kong but he's now in my top 5 favorite characters! And that goes for Yoshi and luigi both in my top 3! Haters that judge him by his cover... OH MY GOD YOUr GOING DOWN!

Even with Waluigi being there just to assist Wario, he has become more than that, gaining a pretty funny personality. And come on, you had to chuckle at the voice at least once. He will forever be my favorite. He may not be the best tennis character, his soccer character is pretty good when doubled with Wario, but stand alone he is still good. Waluigi is #1!

Sorry Toad and Bowser Jr but Waluigi is my favourite Mario character by FAR! He deserves his own game because of his complex personality and funny comments/things he doses. He swims in the air, he calls everyone cheaters if Waluigi loses and he just is a great character. Next Smash game to come better have Waluigi in it otherwise I do not know what is wrong with Nintendo!

10 Toadette Toadette is a character in the Mario series. She is a female Toad who first appeared in the Nintendo GameCube video game Mario Kart: Double Dash.

Most underrated main mario character in the franchise. While in the newer games she acts more as a co-host or a helper toad, she IS a staple character as well. People may call characters filler in which at first Toadette was, but now that's not the case. Plus she is undeniably cute.

I will be getting a Toadette plush since I love Toadette and feel bad for her because she was on the list of the you tube video called My Top 20 Worst Mario Characters uploaded by Boofan. I don't know if I should like or dislike his video. I'm glad he hates Toad, yet upset he doesn't like Toadette.

Toadette is cute. She is a strong female toad that never gives up. She goes on the adventures. In captain toad she goes on to save captain toad. She is a better swimmer than everyone is mushroom kingdom as we can see in New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe. She, along side with Luigi, Rosalina and Waluigi is my favorite character ever

Why is Toadette below Waluigi? Toadette is actually relevant and cute. Waluigi is just meme garbage and filler. She actually appeared in a few adventure games.

The Contenders
11 Shy Guy Shy Guys are an enemy from the Mario and Yoshi series that have been seen in many games, and they are masked because of their shyness.

Shy guy is cute but also a bad guy. I saw what someone said and until now I never really thought about it but I also think he is a penguin look at his hand his feet is makes sense! But one thing- I heard his catchphrase from playing as him once and he said 'Mow' more like a cat not a penguin

He is so cute and he is my second favorite Mario character ever. I picked him because my favorite is already at #1. Why would anyone hate him?! He's also my sisters favorite Mario character. The only bad thing about him is his voice, but its easy to get around once you play him enough in 7 and 8.

Person that said shy guy was a penguin... THANK YOU! Somebody else agreed with me. I think he's a penguin too. Due to his shape and the way he waddles around and in that mask is a beak! Oh and he sounds British like it sound like he says Tallyho he's an adorable British penguin

Shy Guy is just awesome.He needs more power to be in the top 10 he is just sexy and awesome! Why is he at number 11 HE has to be in the top 10 more than anyone else! Plus I hope toad slips out of the top 10 please vote and bring shy guy in the top 10 and take toad out of the top 10!

12 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.

Donkey Kong is the coolest Mario character ever! Sure, Mario and Bowser are the main conflict throughout the series, Donkey Kong can dab in Mario Kart 8. He is also one of the first characters introduced into the Mario franchise. In my opinion Donkey Kong is the best character ever!

Why his he back here? he is way better than anybody and probably most popular he has more games than Mario and he is in most of the MARIO games and is THE strongest person AND HAS a cool side kick (Diddy Kong)

Even if he is not specifically a Mario character, Donkey Kong is better than Yoshi. He is a king!

He can punch you in the face and eat a banana at the same time. That is why he is number 5.

13 Koopa Troopa Koopa Troopas, or just simply Koopas, known in Japan as Nokonoko, are a fictional race of turtle or tortoise-like creatures from the Mario series, as well as its sister Yoshi series.

Koopa is awesome. He's like a mini bowser without the other features like spikes and fire but, WHO CARES THO! He was the only one I used in MK Wii until I thought about stats. KOOPA IS KING! The red ones are even cooler, when they are about to walk into a pit, they be like "ah hell no, I'm outta here.

Let's face it. Koopa Troopa will always be the cutest thing to walk the fictional earth. It's a friendly, huggable, adorable-as-heck, captivating character. And who doesn't love that!

Why is Koopa Troopa in No.15?! It should be in number 1!

Koopa Troopa is boss.

Koopa Troopa is love. Koopa Troopa is life.

Koopa Troopa is the most kawaii mario character ever! I don't know WHY he has to be a bad guy! He's obviously the cutest of them all and he's the only one who won't sit around and whine all day like peach and toad. I am a little disappointed that he chose to work for bowser but he is still my favorite.

My favorite Mario emeny has been in the first Mario kart. got replaced by Wario in Mario kart 64 :C. Koopa returned in Mario kart double dash and got replaced by dry bones in Mario kart DS and returned in Mario kart Wii and nintendo decided to keep Koopa Troopa in mario kart 7 and 8

14 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. Daisy debuted in Super Mario Land in 1989, after few other appearances she disappeared for nine years until she was brought back in Mario Tennis (2000). Daisy is known for being a tomboy especially compared to Princess Peach and Rosalina and unlike Peach, Daisy has only been kidnapped once. Daisy is also known for being Peach's closest friend and Luigi's crush.

I grew up playing Super Mario Land on GameBoy with my mom, So I thought at first it was weird that it's Daisy the princess to be rescued and not Peach. After that, we haven't heard from her in a while until I played Mario Tennis on the N64, and she was alright. But then Mario Kart Double Dash appeared and Daisy became My all time favorite character. Rosalina was a close second though. But I like Daisy more because she looks like a very fun character, and I love her tomboyish personality. And she does seem like the kind of girl who's very energetic and loves to run around and be competitive. She's always my main in the Mario Kart games as well as other games where she's featured. I hope Nintendo can bring her back in a game of her own.

Daisy is my favorite video game character EVER. She has a tan (at least, she used to), she has brown hair (I think), she is a tomboy, she has a strong competitive drive, and she slapped Bowser. THE KOOPA KING. People say she is the Peach clone. She is not. Just because she is a princess, it doesn't make her a Peach clone. She is nothing like Peach. Rosalina is the peach clona. She has Blonde hair (like Peach), she has the same eyes as Peach, she is tall like Peach (Daisy is shorter than Peach), and honestly, she is way overrated. And people say Rosalina is the tomboy, but she is not. Daisy is.

Daisy has been my main since I played my first Mario Kart (Mario Kart DS). She is AWESOME. And I rarely EVER use the babies, but I have started using Baby Daisy, she is just so adorable, and no, I don't find her annoying.

Rosalina, Peach, Baby Rosalina and Baby Peach are my least favorite Nintendo characters EVER.

She's more than just some silly and ditsy girl (Peach) or a perfect Mary-Sue (Rosalina). For one, she's rebellious for not being a perfect and dainty princess like all the others in the Mario and even Zelda franchises. She may dress up like one, but her sassy attatude doesn't match.

Secondly, she is all about competition. She really likes to kick butt in tournaments of sports and Mario Party. People complain that she is not in any main games, but she is at her best in the spinoffs.

Thirdly, she is strong to some extent. Now, I know she got kidanapped once and she doesn't exactly save the day. I'm not going to go into the 'slapping Bowser' incident, but it's clear that Wario, Waluigi, Bowser and all the other enemies don't intimidate her.

"Guess what? Rosalina deserves this attention because she is a nice, calm, beautiful, intelligent, powerful girl. She was so great she rules the multiverse. Daisy is an obnoxious, loud, attention hog that has a ton of fans for pretending to be a tomboy. Way too overrated, and should never be ahead of actually cool people like King Boo. You have bad judgement"

We really couldn't care less. This is an amazing example of how Rosalina is getting shoved down our throats by obnoxious fanboys.

15 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 is awesome. Everyone who hates him should go get a life. Those who compare him to Plankton or say he doesn't have arms you obviously haven't played the game, because IF YOU PLAYED THE GAME, then you would know these are traits that he does NOT have.

Fawful is NOT a cheap idiot or loser. Sure, he laughs weirdly, talks weirdly, and makes weird food metaphors, but that ADDS to his character, not taking away from it. He is a valuable henchman to Cackletta in the first game, carrying out her orders successfully and efficiently until he is defeated by Mario and Luigi. He is also a tactical genius who manages to take over the Mushroom Kingdom without a scratch (before Bowser stops him, but hey, it's Bowser), he captures the Dark Star and almost becomes the essence of dark power.

If you aren't a fan of the RPG's and haven't actually bothered to play the games, DO NOT judge the characters! Don't say that a character is a fail who doesn't deserve to be on this list just ...more

Fawful is not friends with Dimentio; They exist in different universes (M&L and Paper Mario respectively) and have never even met. They would probably make a good team, though.

Fawful's quotes are phenomenal, his personality is just awesome unlike any other character. He is my role model. Now, excuse me, I must eat my salad of evil.

At first Fawful just seemed like a "meh" character to me, but when I started seeing how well-developed he was, as well as his hilariously strange speech pattern, I was proven wrong.

16 Princess Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is the lead female of the The Mario franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Run, and even starred in her own game, Super Princess Peach for the Nintendo DS. She has appeared in many spinoff series, too, including Mario and Sonic Olympic Games, the Mario Kart series, the Mario Party series, Mario Sports Games, the Super Smash Bros. Series, and many more.

I feel like people think peach is just a spoiled,helpless, and over rated princess but she isn't. She may be a princess but she doesn't ask for much or acts spoiled all she ask for is basically if mario could come for tea. In mario Odyssey at the end when mario defeats bowser , bowser and mario give flowers to peach and peach can't take it anymore so she says no and Flys away in a rocket thingy and leaves them their. ( sorry if I'm spoiling. I just want to prove a point. ) that shows she's not helpless even though she is kidnapped 22 I thing times , she probably tries to escape or just trusts mario that he will safe her. Peach is not Over rated because she proves she isn't. - Skittlez

Peach- well peach is my favorite character so I can't be unfair, but peach is a fun character with an appealing design and she brings the grace and the girl power to the series. A great role model to young woman or men as a character.

You Peach haters make me sick. Just leave her alone! It's not her fault she gets kidnapped! She's a very sweet kind princess. (She's only dumb in the Mario and Luigi games). People do hate her for pretty awful reasons. "Daisy and Rosalina are prettier! " That's pretty arguable and I've been a jerk about Daisy's glamour. She is pretty but not her dress (in my opinion trying not to be a jerk about her anymore). While I am a Rosalina fan myself, I do like Peach. And then there's Daisy...who I tolerate now. You can't really replace her since she's a classic and the other two aren't (though Rosalina is becoming a main Mario character.)

Why is she so low on the list? If it weren't for her getting kidnapped. Mario wouldn't be going on epic adventures. I just don't get it, I really don't get it. Why does everybody hate her. She's kind, a great cook, can be pretty helpful for Mario at times, she's a very good smash bros character, and she's kinda hot. I love Peach and it's not only her appearance. There are a lot Rosalina fanboys that only like her because she is hot. Anyways Peach is probably a very underrated Mario character, if not that she is the most underrated character

17 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.

King Boo is cool, but he's HUGELY underrated! He's only in the Luigi's Mansion games and in the Party genre of the Mario games, make him a Mario Boss, please!

He captured mario and almost luigi if it wasn't for the ghost dog ( I hate the ghost dog so much ) . I really wanted luigi to be captured by king boo cause the villains would finally win but then the mario bros would probably find a way out of the picture frame.

This dude defeats mario in like most of the games he appears in. If it wasnt for Luigi, he would have succeeded with his plans. One of the best villains ever.

I was looking for King Boo in the Top 5, but I didn't find him. He just rocks! Please vote and send him to the top five. Play as him in any heavyweight vehicle in Mario Kart Wii and he will dominate it with its huge speed.

18 Dry Bones Dry Bones is a common enemy species in the Super Mario series of video games since „Super Mario Bros. 3“ (1988). After his first debut as a playable character in „Mario Superstar Baseball“ (2005), he became a fan-favorite and also got playable in other spin-offs of the Mario series.

Dry Bones is indeed pretty cute. It's no wonder he replaced Koopa Troopa in Mario Kart DS, on top of the fact that Paratroopa got completely ditched. Dry Bones actually looks cute if you see the ending screen on Mario Kart Wii.

Dry bones doesn't have a big role, but I still consider him one of my favorite Mario characters. I love how he was made a boss in Mario Party 9 and I think Nintendo could do great things with Dry Bones!

Come on people! Dry Bones is the best! He could have an amazing personality but Nintendo never gave him one. I don't really know why I love him so much, I just do!

Some things, like Dry Bones, that are literally dead, are better than live things like that awful Koopa Troopa and Paratroopa! Make him higher! PLEASE!

19 Vivian

How can Vivian be lower than Peach? I am sick of those Peach fanboys that go, "Oh, Peach is hot and Peach is pink, which is my favorite color." In this case, NO! Peach sucks and made Mario Party 9 even worse.

'Peach haters, please just get over it.'
Thank u. I doubt the peach haters will ever grow a brain and get over the fact that peach is a big part of the Mario series like Mario, Luigi, toad, and Bowser are... But I'm glad I'm not the only one with frikkn brains on this site

She's cute and shy. She kinda reminds me of myself sometimes.

She needs to come back

20 Iggy Koopa

Iggy is the only one on my list who really deserves it because he is the best in the franchise. Koopalings shouldn't get hated for "ruining" original bosses because they really didn't, luckily Iggy isn't the least popular of the koopalings, (sorry to Wendy) and 21st isn't even bad because he outranked somehow Diddy Kong. Iggy may be the 7th guy in the Koopa troop on this list but Iggy Koopa deserves to be respected (Literally and figuratively, he may start the robot war)

Koopalings don't deserve hate. They are 10x better than Pink Gold Peach, Metal Mario, Cat Peach, Baby Daisy, Baby Rosalina, and Tanooki Mario. Also if you look closer at their boss fights then you can see that they are actually very unique. The hate for the Koopalings is extremely undeserved. Koopaling haters make me even more sick then Peach haters and that's saying something

Iggy is a crazy weirdo that smacks his butt and screams but I love him for that. He's my favorite Mario character. You Koopalings haters better not say I'm an idiot for having a Koopaling as my favorite Mario character. It's just my opinion. I think this palm tree haired guy is awesome.

Nintendo has never made me want to directly hug a Koopa more than with Iggy!
I actually made an entire list on the Koopalings on their the top tens list, who are BY AN INDOMITABLE AMOUNT, my favorite Mario characters.
No matter who it is, how "special" they are, or whatever, nobody in any Nintendo game could EVER beat Iggy, Larry & Lemmy & they will always be my favorites no matter what!

21 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 should be in the top ten in this list! :-)
Dimentio is a chessmaster who cunningly uses Count Bleck, the pure hearts, and the four heroes to advance his goal: destroy the universe, and recreate it with him acting as god. He comes so close to achieving his ultimate goal, but when he doesn't get there, he still goes out with a bang (pun intended).

Dimentio is probably one of the best Mario RPG villains to date, right up with Fawful and Antasma. Just when you think the game is over, Dimentio comes in and steals the show. Not to mention, he is COOL. Easy Top 10 material.

Dimentio is such a great villain! He was manipulative and he thought out his plan pretty good. He has very clever dialogue and all of his battle songs are epic.

Dimentio is just awesome. He is quite mysterious and makes plans ahead of everyone else. His personality is incredibly fun and cool.

22 Diddy Kong Diddy Kong is a fictional character in the Donkey Kong series of video games, first appearing in the 1994 game Donkey Kong Country.

Diddy Kong rocks! Whoever said that he sucks is a fat idiot because many people want him to return to Mario Kart 9.

Diddy Kong vs. Kirby.

Why would that be a great Death Battle? If you ask me why, it's because both are extremely cute.

He's a really good character. I sometimes play as him in Mario Kart Wii. I haven't unlocked him yet in SSBU, but when I unlock him I'll use him a lot. I also want him in MK9. Overall, he's pretty good.

I glad Diddy's above all seven of those garbage koopalings. It's annoying how those stupid seven stole the monkey's spot in Mario Kart 8.

23 Baby Yoshi

I don't know why people are hating baby Yoshi. He's so cute! Maybe think of those idiots Mario and toad.
Oh yeah and Toad is SO annoying plus Yoshi is cute and any other Yoshi is better than the rest

I love baby Yoshi he is so cute!
if you like Yoshi trust me your going to love baby Yoshi he is basically Yoshi just smaller he is my favourite character in the Mario history and lots of people say that's there's too!

I HATE Princess Peach so I'm just voting for this loser so he can beat her.

He is so cute and yoshi rocks!

24 Pauline Pauline, also known as Daniella Verducci, is the original damsel-in-distress whom Mario must rescue from the eponymous ape in the original Donkey Kong.

At least some of Peach's potential WAS ACTUALLY USED, name something Pauline has done. Perhaps your response is "She started the main plot of Mario"? Thing is, you hate Peach BECAUSE of the plot, also Pauline wasn't from the game that saved the gaming industry. Perhaps because "She's 'hot'."? That's more petty (not that the other statement was petty though), and also take Yoshi for example of this (I'm so sorry, I meant that ugliness doesn't effect character). That's pretty much it for reasons to like her, though not much reason to hate her either. Overrated, but not bad.

Look I really don't understand these other comments about Pauline. But she's been around longer than Peach. I'm sorry to you Peach fans, but Peach is horrible! Just... Horrible! She's mean to Daisy and the other princesses and slaves innocent toads. Pauline has never been mean to Peach or anything, for sake I don't even think Pauline knows who Peach is! You can't just hate Pauline because of Peach. You can hate Pauline all you want but you can't say Peach came first because that's not true!

Pauline is a character who makes more sense then Peach.

Pauline - I'm a girl who lives in Brooklyn who used to date a plumber and a wild monkey on the loose snatches me up a few ladders, and a plumber with a hammer has to save me.

Peach - I'm a mushroom princess where mushrooms are the theme around here. A senseless monster named Bowser throws me in a ship with monster kids. Two plumbers and sometimes mushroom kids save me.

Pauline isn't bad she's normal. Peach isn't bad either. But Pauline doesn't steal Mario. He chooses to visit her. Look how much toads came to see them! Even peach helped save pauline on mario vs donkey kong. Peach and Pauline should be friends. The feud is fanmade and stupid. People should stop hating pauline over it (and it is Mario's fault peach is kidnapped. He doesn't defend her in time.)

25 Blumiere a.k.a Count Bleck

Unlike countless other villains in the Mario franchise, Count Bleck/Blumiere has a lot of depth. Instead of acting entirely on a lust for power or revenge, the Count is a tragic villain who was broken by his thwarted love. Although that doesn't make him any less of a villain, it does make him more interesting than your typical doomsday baddie.

Most Mario villains are interested in domination and taking over kingdoms but not Count Bleck. He has different reasons why he was a villain. The story between Count Bleck and a girl he fell in love with (not going to spoil who she is) is very touching and amazing.

One of the most depressing villains in history, Bleck posed a great villain in Super Paper Mario. To avoid spoilers, I'll say this much: Bleck manages to be both a great villain and a deep character. Not something a lot of villains can say.

Count Bleck deserves the top 1 spot. I can't understand anyone who hates this villainous clown. Also, he's from Super Paper Mario, my favorite video game of all time besides Pac-Man World for the PlayStation One.
