Most Forgotten Mario Characters

The Top Ten
1 Pinky Kong (Donkey Kong Jr. Math)

We don't know why he's pink or why he's even on dk jr math.

2 Princess Shakora (Wario Land 4)

Despite I beaten Wario Land 4 I never knew about her.
Many years later I did some Google searches about this game and I learned about her existence.
The Golden Diva cursed her in result to turn into a Black Cat.When you end the game depending on the chests you collected, the princess from a black cat will return to her human form in a different form in each Ending and will thank Wario.
Because I got the worst ending I didn't recognized her just for the reason how the princess return to her form that is shown on the upper image in the good ending or in a mature version of herself in the best ending.
She is cute, helpfull and my personal favorite Mario princess.

3 Axem Rangers (Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars)

No one has spoken of them in years...

4 Wart (Super Mario Bros 2)

Classic Super Mario Bros. 2. I live that game. Why can't wart be brought back?

How this villain from a well known Mario game is so forgotten.

Wart is my favorite Mario character of all time!

5 Draculad (Pumpkin Zone 1-1)

He only comes on a secret goal on the pumpkin zone 1-1.

6 Fizzi (Paper Mario)

Fizzi wasn't on any game but paper mario. She is the gatekeeper of Mario and Luigi's house. She was read in Luigi's diary.

7 Captain Syrup (Wario Land)

Back in the day they should have picked her over Waluigi or Daisy for Mario spin offs. For once she has history with Wario, Peach, and Mario. Secondly she isn't a carbon copy of an existing character, has a different role (how many female villains are the? Exactly). She isn't yet another princess and has her own individuality. But this is the series that glorifies clones. So unfortunately unique characters like her fade into obscurity while simple edits of existing character like Rosalina get massive amounts of exposure.

8 Tatanga (Super Mario Land) Tatanga is a villain from the Mario Bros. Franchise. He is known as Princess Daisy's arch nemesis as he has targeted her on kidnapping missions. His only appearance was in the 1989 game, Super Mario Land, in which he kidnapped Princess Daisy and was the main villain of the game against Mario.

This guy was underrated villain. I mean, he should be appeared in future Mario games (with unique 3D styles). I mean, since Mario Odysee was released. I wish this guy should appeared in Mario franchise.

It's about an alien kidnapped a princess named Daisy (whom became Luigi's significant others) and forced to marry but Mario (or Luigi as he was disguised as his brother maybe) goes in action.

In 6 Golden Coins, he returned from the space level as the boss for revenge on Mario for ruining their marraige.

If this guy appeared in Mario Odysee, I bet it would be the best.

9 Funky Kong (Donkey Kong 64) Originating from the SNES Donkey Kong Country, in which he is the CEO of Funky's Flights, this Kong absolutely tears up the race track with a massive +4 speed and +3 off-road stat, making him the most popular character in Mario Kart Wii online play.

Funky Kong is amazing! The last reference to him (I think) was in Mario Kart Wii...

10 Inviso (Yoshi's Story)

Inviso is only on one level on Yoshi's Story. You have to beat this hard level. He's hard to defeat, too. He never returned.

The Contenders
11 Mallow (Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars)

Mallow is way more forgotten than geno.
I listen about geno often especially in messages were they want him to be in Smash.

A lot of people who played this game. Geno is remembered Mallow is forgotten

Forgotten? Well, everyone mentions Geno, not him.

12 Chestnut King (Thousand Year Door)

This guy isn't anywhere to be seen but the realm of Eclair. The story of Eclair was told with Luigi getting beaten up by Eclair's father, the chestnut king.

13 The Three Pig Heads (Mario Land 2)
14 Baby Wario (Yoshi's Island DS)

Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Princesses and I believed how baby Wario was fake until I played yoshi island Ds.

15 Geno (Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars)
16 Chunky Kong (Donkey Kong 64)

And then there is chunky...he's dead

And then there's Chunky... he's dead

17 Bouldergeist (Super Mario Galaxy)
18 Koopa Kid (Super Mario)

I never have listened about him.
Only in a YouTube video about forgotten Mario characters.

Not really forgotten but he has not appeared in a Mario game since Mario Party 7 and Advance

19 Foreman Spike (Wrecking Crew)

Mario's second rival behind Donkey Kong, referenced in Mario Maker, Smash Bros, Wario Ware, and Mario Kart. But he is so forgettable that no one remembers him.

A forgettable from Wrecking Crew who is considered the prototype of Wario. Who even remembers this guy?

20 Tamanoripu (Super Mario Land 2)

This teddy bear only appeared once on mario land 2 and was never seen again.

21 Antasma (Mario & Luigi: Dream Team)
22 Manky Kong (Donkey Kong)
23 Sabasa (Mario Land 2)

Her name is Sabatha and Waluigi looks a lot like her. Maybe his face was inspired by her.

This annoying girl was seen once and also never returned.

24 Candy Kong (Donkey Kong Country)
25 Holly Koopa (Mario Party 8)
