Top 10 Strongest Super 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 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.

The king of the koopas. Bowser is no joke he was a threat to Rosalina a literal god also he managed to survive lava and being whacked into the sun.

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.

There is a good reason why bowser is slow. If he was fast he would be a god considering all his other powers.

He can punch and kick and shoot fire AND kidnap Peach but he has power...He just doesn't use it.

2 Mario Mario, originally named Jumpman, is the main character of the Super Mario Bros. franchise, created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario game, including games in spin-off 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 unofficial mascot. His franchise has grown to be the most successful video game franchise of all time.

Ok why is Mario lower than Bowser? Mario has defeated Bowser countless times he was able to lift an entire castle and kicked like a soccer ball. He outran a black hole, he defeated reality warpers, he played heatstroke on the sun without burning, he swam through space and he when got hit by an asteroid it just stuns him for a bit, swinged Bowser around by his tail without any problems, the Dark Star (Mario's version of the devil) needed to take over Bowser just to stand a chance against the two plumbers. He defeated Donkey Kong who could punch the Moon out of orbit, he can break bricks just with his hand any many more so that's why Mario needs to be higher than the King of Koppa's

Super Mario is more powerful than you think... He is able to defeat Bowser who is number 1 at making this. Swing him around by his tail and launch him into bombs. Also he is able to break blocks made out of solid bricks with just a single punch. But if this doesn't convince you he is able to swim in space without running out of oxygen and when he gets hit by a meteoroid he just continues swimming like nothing happened. Another case is he survived a star falling from the middle of space without a single injury. There is even more feats like the rest so overall Mario is the strongest Mario/Nintendo hero of all time. So please make Mario number 1

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.

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.

Donkey Kong is extremely powerful but not Bowser or Mario level he was able to punch the moon and it fell straight to earth and not a single injury at all. So DK is ALMOST god slayer tier but he is that powerful compared to Rosalina, Luigi, Bowser and Mario

Donkey Kong punched the moon so hard it fell onto the Earth. He can also punch at what's basically light speed. Do I really have to explain anything else?

Donkey Kong is strong but against other characters he is nothing.

Why is funky Kong not this list!?!

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.

Canonically, Wario can't die because he doesn't "feel like it." He's also capable of destroying hard, stone-like materials using just his shoulders and being able to chuck enemies hard enough to crash and break pillars. He also has amazing speed, as seen in Wario Land 4. And while we're at it, he has power ups that let him shoot fire, ground pound hard enough to cause an earthquake, and glide at great speeds. He also has the Earthshake punch, letting him punch the ground to cause the entire world around him to shake. He'll literally do anything for money, which could be a strength and a weakness at the same time. Let's not forget that he's literally died before (Zombie Wario) and yet he still gets back up and continues. Wario truly is the greatest achievement. (Wario Land 4 to be exact.)

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.

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

He is immortal and could launch Mario out of the atmosphere if he had the chance.

5 Princess Rosalina

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.

Rosilina can't actually destroy the universe, she merely helped it safely reset, but she can still destroy and create entirely new planets, this makes her hands down the strongest character.

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.

6 Luigi Luigi, originally a palette swap of Mario named Green Mario, is a major 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, taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's unofficial mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Super Mario franchise, often as a sidekick to his brother.

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.

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, Luigi is the only character who is powerful enough to host the chaos heart, which has the power to destroy multiple universes, he's multi-universal at least.

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.

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.

Roy is the best because his bully personality shows how tough he is and even through he is pink he still looks very tough and I love his sunglasses. He is the best

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

Bowsers minion Roy can be strong but he's not hard to beat and not easy to beat.

8 Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. Often appearing as a sidekick and helper to Mario, Yoshi is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi's Island and the Super Mario franchises.

Yoshi is a dinosaur that can eat ANYTHING and then he can turn them into eggs to use as weapons, too. He also can use his fast legs too make an entire other jump!

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 my favorite character and he's the best but there are two stronger then him.

He can eat people

9 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.

Bowser Jr is Bowser's evil child! I like it!

He has a flying thing

Jr is the strongest because he can make robots and lead a army well at a young age

10 Boom Boom

This character is so powerful. It can go invisible!

He can be quite aggressive but Mario is able to deafest him easily

The Contenders
11 Princess Toadstool (Peach)

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

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

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.

He's is able to

13 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 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.

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, 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.

You need four heroes and EIGHT legendary artifacts just to defeat him along with the power of love! And even after he DIES he can STILL destroy the universe!

14 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 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 is the Master Hand, ruler of all things Nintendo.

Waluigi is very strong, he kicks Bowser in Mario Party 3!

Waluigi should be Number one Waluigi is more powerful than anyone

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 more.
16 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

17 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.

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.

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)

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.

Daisy is also strong. Her level is same as mario, peach, luigi, rosalina and yoshi.

18 King Boo In the Super Mario series, King Boo is the leader of all the Boos and a major antagonist. He is an ally of King Bowser. He is depicted as a large white Boo with a crown similar to that of Princess Peach. In the Luigi's Mansion series, King Boo serves as the main antagonist and Luigi's arch-nemesis. He is depicted as gargantuan, even larger than his Super Mario counterpart, with darker eyes, a purple tongue and pupils, and a golden crown with a corrupted power-enhancing jewel. He is considered to be one of the series' most evil villains.

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.

He's a challenging opponent and he deals a lot of damage but his weakness is the star power up .

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

King Boo always tricks Luigi!

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

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 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.

Bleck has the power of the Dark Prognosticus, which gives him insight into the future as well as many other powerful abilities.

20 Metal Mario Metal Mario is a character that appears in both the Mario series and the Super Smash Bros, where he made his first appearance in the Nintendo 64 version. He's pretty similar to Mario when using a Metal Cap, but instead of being a transformation, Metal Mario is his own character.

Metal Mario is Mario but metal how is he not higher on the rankings

21 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 more.

He's normally the 7th boss in Mario games in Mario bros wii there are plat form he lands on and makes it hard to hi him.

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.

I think he should be higher. he can clone himself, which makes him harder to hit

22 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 to winning, like mixing up their orbs.

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.

23 Vivian

Vivian is very extra really super powerful!
In the field, Vivian is able to pull Mario into the shadows in order to avoid detection!

This can be used for many purposes, including evading roaming enemies and eavesdropping.
these are some of Vivian's moves:
Shade Fist, Veil, Fiery Jinx, Infatuate

24 Cappy

If Cappy can take control of nearly anything, then he could take control of Rosilina therefore becoming the most poweful being in the universe.

25 Gold Mario

Mario but with more durability and most likely strength.

Gold Mario can turn a lot of things into gold coins!

Mario but gold that can turn everything into coins and has a fireball that is made out of gold
