Coolest Mario Characters

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.

Even regarding the fact that Mario is the main character of the series, Yoshi is overall the most likable. He has an indestructible stomach, and whatever he can't eat (and turn in to weaponry), he can spit lack out which will:
A. Instantly fall to their doom
B. Roll around the area and hit other enemies
He's also a loyal companion, and the drums in background music you hear when riding him sound great.

Yoshi is by far the coolest Mario Character. He can eat like everything, he can float, he can make eggs and throw them at enemies, he can grow wings and breathe fire and step on spikes! Yoshi saved Mario's life and Mario abuses him.

Yoshi has always been my favorite character, plus it is the name of my dog. I usually play as him in Mario kart wii and super mario party.Yoshi is the best!

Yoshi is awesome, cute and also the best Mario character. He is also one character not to be taken lightly as well, and though of as a wimp, he maybe cute, happy and cheerful, but he is one dino you don't want to mess with at all ;). Yoshi for the win =3.

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.

I think that now Mario is underrated because of Game theory and the Mario is mental thing makes me real mad.It is Luigi that is now very overrated! You know Mario saved gaming not Luigi so what will you say about that Luigi fanboys?

I wish there was a vote down button, because I would press it! This guy, I just can't with him! He kills Yoshisaur, embarrasses his brother, destroys property, which are actually people, is a jerk to everyone, greedy, a womanizer, and when did this guy have time to go to medical school?

There should always be more Mario games and a new animated T.V. show and Mario games that can be in 3d like new arcade games of donkey kong and super Mario bros in 3d and Mario covered the eighties from top to bottom he he knows how to use a hammer

This guy rules he rocks he the best video game character in the history of the world (he's better than sonic or any Pokemon or ash ketchum! LONG LIVE Mario

3 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 faced his fears to save Mario from King Boo in Luigi's Mansion. And he saved Mario again in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. And he saved Mario, The Toads, and Peach from King Boo and Hellen Gravely in Luigi's Mansion 3.
Yoshi would never save Mario from someone like King Boo

I don't like how Mario gets all the credit when Luigi did all the work, the toads are so dumb, and Peach just pushes Luigi out of her way and give her medal to Mario.

Not fair! Luigi deserves the work he done!

I like Luigi better than Mario because he faced his fears to save his brother and yet he doesn't get thanked at all. He should be higher than his stupid brother who is so selfish and takes all the credit and kills innocent baby penguins in Mario 64

Does anyone else realize that he can win by doing nothing. Look it up if you don't believe me. That is cool in itself that no one else has actually accomplished. That deserves #1 by itself

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 ...read more.

Despite being a villain and always losing to Mario he is still the coolest. He has a TON of castles. A HUGE army. He outnumbers by the MILLIONS. He has a spiked shell,horns awesome Mohawk,spiked bracelets. What's not to love? He really deserves #1 more than a Barney Dino thing (Yoshi), Or the chubby Italian plumber himself (Mario) Or a coward ( Like Luigi)

Come on man, Bowser is the king of Koopas, with the spikes of a spiney, the fire of a Fire Bro. The infinite hammer supply of a Hammer Bro, but too bad he doesn't have the brains of a Magikoopa, or He'd have Mario BEAT.
Bowser truly is the best.

Bowser is such a classic villain. With his super super cool castle, Koopa Troop, 8 children, and airship, this guy deserves number 1.

How is Barney ( yoshi) a fat Italian plumber (Mario) and a coward (Luigi) ahead of Bowser. Bowser is the coolest character with the coolest boss battles

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 ...read more.

Cute pack on Mario! He is a cutie. He comes in different colors! He is my second favorite character. Nobody in Mario can beat Birdo. Toad is the loyal friend of Peach who is easily a good character unlike Baby Daisy and Daisy who are a waste of space. Toad is ultimate!

What's better than a cute lovable character that helps you on your journey to save the princess and serves as a very informative guide? My favorite character! FIVE STARS!

It's either Baby Mario or Toad, but I have to go with Toad. He's AWESOME! What's cooler that a mushroom that's stronger and faster than the Mario Bros? (SMB2)

Toad is JUST under Boo and Blooper for being my favorite Mario character. He's awesome!

6 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.

There is something about Him that I just LOVE! Nintendo is using him pretty well, he is powerful, smart, aggressive, and cute, but he has so much more potential! If SSB4 had a plot, Bowser Jr could have done something great in it! I can't wait until he takes Bowser's throne!

How is Bowser jr all the down on 21? He took over all of delfino. That is preety impressive for a 9 year old. Heck, this character should go all the way. Gotta love this koopa!

Funny how the 7 koopalings receive the hate now due to their crappy boss battles and MK8. It's hilarious how one character in Bowser Jr can be more diverse than seven bastards.

He is very cute. He's way better without his Koopa Clown Car. Why does he use his Koopa Clown Car in Super Smash Bros, Mario Tennis Aces etc.?

7 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.

Where did all these other dudes come from? Mario and donkey kong are original.

I have him on Mario V. s Donkey Kong, he looks so cool with the wind up thingy.

So underrated (Ooh,Ah,Ah) so strong and powerful and cool give him some sunglasses and he will be a hit!

Overrated but still good

8 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.

Gross, rude, disgusting, cunning, and sarcastic, but at the same time lovable and hilarious? LOVE IT! My vote goes to this guy! He's a very diverse character. He is Mario's Deadpool but he is also the male Rosalina by having a tragic backstory.

Wario is the coolest guy on mario by far! I say he is number 1! I even have a tribe on fight my monster called kingwario! He deserves to be number 1 at all costs!

This guy is DANG awesome. He's cunning, he's sarcastic, he has a sweet tooth, his mustache is grotesque, what can you ask for?

Should be way higher

9 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.

People troll her around just because she's not a bricking Yoshi! Yoshi is weird. Birdo should be +9. #10? Besides she taught the shy guys, they're cool because of her. If her nose was like a yoshi's people would like her a bit more and realize it's a girl and super powerful than the others. Without Birdo, the girls are weak like Peach, Daisy, and stupid Rosalina.

These Birdo-haters just love Yoshi because he caused the front of her nose to break and made Birdo become hated. If her nose looked like a Yoshi's nose then, Birdo would be just as great as yoshi in everyone else's image.

Birdo makes Mario games cool, right? Birdo also protects the egglings of Yoshis. Birdo has the responsibilities of a male Mario character, but is THAT the reason she's the "worst" Mario character? She's the best on Mario Strikers Charged, I asked 60 people and 39 said Birdo.

Why isn't Birdo number two? She has more comments than anyone but Yoshi. Also she's pretty funny too. Everyone hates her so much though, and a negative comment on Mario makes her even higher than him!

10 Shy Guy

There literally isn't a better Mario character. At all. The only thing that comes close is Fly Guy. No one can beat him. Especially Boo.

This guy is way better than Yoshi and Birdo Combined!

I love this character. Dragon 101

Also very overrated

The Contenders
11 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.

I like Waluigi. He's not my favourite ( my favourite character is Daisy ) but I think he's ok. I don't like his fan base though.
I think he deserved to be in SSBU instead of just being an assist trophy.
Overall, I think he's pretty cool.

Waluigi is so funny when he says "Yah, wee! " in Mario Kart. His moves are so erratic. If you play as him you'll always have a smile on your face.

My favorite video game character is yoshi, but waluigi needs more credit. He has the rejected powers with him. WWAHH

Waluigi would be an over 125% better better arch-rival of Amy Rose.

12 Princess Rosalina

Rosalina is Nombre 1. Why is Luma not with Rosalina here she is also one of the coolest.Rosalina is in space that is why she can fly. And Peach shood be nombre 2 after Rosaina. Rosalina is like a Queen. Not a Princess.Went I play with her in Smash she always beats every one. She is also the strongest Mario Cheracter. If you lic up Who is the strongest Mario cheracter. The corect answer is Rosalina and Luma.

Why does everyone compare Rosalina to Daisy and Peach? Those two shouldn't even be mensioned in this part of the list. I mean, every time you read about Yoshi, you don't get a load of people rabbitting on about how Toad and Shy Guy are better/worse! Rosalina is her OWN person! Also, I don't believe in the word 'tomboy'.

Though she only appears in two games, she is super awesome. In Super Mario Galaxy, she has managed to take care of a ton of lumas and has an entire observatory in space. She is also very kindhearted, as she left her own home to take care of a luma who couldn't find his mother. In Mario Kart, she just owns all. 'enough said.

I LOVE her! I don't care if you hate her you a re probably some fan of Daisy or peach But I love Rosalina! She had a hard life but stayed strong. Rosalina is beautiful and kind and doesn't just sit around waiting of someone to save her.

13 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.

Naw, Dry Bones was in Deluxe. Dry bones rocks so much, he replaced Koopa in Mario Kart DS for good reason. Koopa is lame, Dry bones is GOD!

I think he was replaced in mario kart 8 by pink gold peach. I might be wrong but still the best and coolest character.

I do not know if there is any reason why Dry Bones is not cool. He is just a unique character!

I hate it when he tosses his head in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It's weird in a bad way.

14 Shadow Mario

Bowser Jr. I Like Cosmic Mario Better Because you can actually race him instead of a chase like in SMS (Not to be confused with SIMS)

In Mario Galaxy. The shadow Mario race, wow. It's so cool. You can see the stars through him.

Seriously? Why shadow Mario here?

/ / up please
!
!

Shadow Mario is.., I don't know

15 Boo

Best Mario character. No doubt in my mind. Way better than everyone else. Especially Shy Guy.

How on earth is peCh in front of them?! I love these little guys.

Boo is the best Mario character that was ever created.

Why do people like boo? I don't find he/she very cool. Well, it is just my opinon. I guess some people like boo

16 Whomp King
17 Baby Mario Baby Mario is the infant version of the major character in the Super Mario franchise, Mario. He is known for his appearances as a playable character in various Mario games.

Baby Mario is the bet gaming character tying with Rosalina & her Namco arch-rival, Inky the blue ghost (from the Pac-Man series).

He is number 1 he's good at Mario kart he's in Mario sunshine witch is awesome and I like the baby characters.

I've got to say, he is brave and smart. Smarter than his dumb sister, Baby Peach!

Irrelevant and not cool

18 Baby Luigi Baby Luigi is the infant version of the major character in the Super Mario franchise, Luigi. He is known for his appearances as a playable character in various Mario games.

The smarter and savager version of Luigi. Baby mario is plain stupid

Best baby character

19 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 ...read more.

But then it came certain anglious. Peach is better than Daisy. Also not too girly like Daisy. In Sports Mix Mario, Peach is the best at basketball because of her blocking experience. Then someone who hates Peach, sucks for you! If you hate Daisy, eh, she's annoying and a cheap. Peach also pretends to be Daisy in a couple of games. I think Peach makes a perfect Daisy. Peach is the second girl on the list, first is Birdo, but I love them both. Peach and Birdo :D!

Really looks good in a soccer outfit. And they say this the SECOND girl on the list? Do we really know if Birdo IS a girl? But then we can still say Peach is amazing. It really isn't her fault if she gets kidnapped weekly. It's the toads that should be protecting her. What have they been doing?!

People mainly hate on this girl because she gets captured. First off, that's not her fault because Bowser is way stronger than her and he's ' scary. Wouldn't you need help if you saw him? Not every girl is able to defend themselves well. Stop saying that every girl should be able to defend themselves fine, some girls aren't strong enough and that's fine. That's why she's oh, I don't know, the DAMSEL IN DISTRESS!

What?! Peach is the best, she must be number one.

Daisy and Rosalina are the best too, so only vote
For Peach, Daisy or Rosalina.

They are all the coolest, especially Peach,
Nobody can beat me, if I have Peach.
In Brawl for example she is the best and she have the best
Attacks.

Peach for the world

20 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.

"Daisy is so awesome! She is a tomboy who appeared in one game and has barely and development or character! Rosalina? She's a Peach clone! Who cares if she has a backstory, character development, different dress and design, and complexity? That sucks! She's a space peach! "

Daisy Fans suck. They honestly parade this website going on about how their character is better and how Rosalina sucks because they are butt hurt about smash. Then when we point out that Rosalina gets unjustified hate, we are bombarded with dislikes because how dare we go up against the all mighty and incredibly whiny Daisy Fanbase. You guys are getting worse than Rosalina's, and that's saying something!

Oh, and if this comment gets dislikes...you are basically proving my point. Have a nice day! 😏

You have to love that tomboy attitude that Daisy gives off she has a beautiful dress and wonderful kingdom and she is good friends with princess Peach and Luigi. I mean who wouldn't love her and she can pretty much save her self if there's trouble

She slapped Bowser so hard he was sent miles away! No one else can do that! She finally is a character in Smash! She was in Melee, but she was a palette swap. She deserves her own game!

Princess Daisy is the most underrated Mario character! Seriously, she's awesome! Pac-Man & Miles "Tails" Prower are her greatest partners ever, especially in Canada!

21 Gooper Blooper
22 Boshi

I never seen this guy before.

This guy is basically the Wario to Yoshi. His name was also originally Washi

Birdo's abusive boyfriend.

Who the hell is this dope?

23 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.

23? Bruh, Yoshi fans are idiots, who cares if a character is cute? Plus, Yellow Yoshi is just basically Koopa, just a heroic version and screams "YOSSHIIII" all the time. I like Koopa because he's a pretty good player in Mario Kart, and I never won a cup when I wasn't him, and he's unappreciated, and sometimes even hated on.

Koopa is the cutest Mario character tied with Yoshi. If you look at them closely, you can see that they have the shape and color of eyes.

Koopa is awesome. If you like Yoshi, can't you like Koopa too? They are the 2 best Mario characters ever.

They can be annoying, but besides that, they're cute!

24 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 is an awesome villain. The way he doesn't lose his cool, independently plotting his overthrow of the Count, is just really interesting. He might be the most intimidating villain in the seires.

Did I seriously have to add him? Not only is he cool looking and mysterious, he's the only person so far to actually KILL Mario. So badarse.

Dimentio is the coolest boss ever. Just like mephiles from sonic

My favorite bad guy ever!

25 Iggy Koopa

Yeah, I hate all seven koopalings. Iggy's an annoying zit who needs to be permanently popped. I want to beat Iggy with his own wand and dance over his corpse.

Did someone order a bland piece of garbage as boss filler? Iggy's the idiot for you.

Best character ever in the universe and logic into imagination and more Iggy you're the number way more than 1 your infinity.

He's so forgettable. Iggy is ass. Terrible boss, terrible character.
