Yes she is truly underrated by Nintendo. Wendy is more underrated because she gets more hate

We all know why Rosalina haters suck

She's not overrated and she isn't a b word or a hoe.

Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super more.

How are Mario and Sonic underrated? They're the face of their respective companies.

Games over fanbase. Mario and Sonic are the ones with their names on the title.

I think we all know why he's underrated.

3 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.

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 more.

Bowser is Awesome.

You gotta love him. He’s one of nintendo’s few villains who’s personality actually serves well for comic relief.

5 Knuckles the Echidna (Sonic the Hedgehog)

Knuckles is awesome - Randomator

6 Krystal (Star Fox)

Maybe not underrated among furries but still underrated as a video game character, enough that she didn't even appear as a fighter in the latest Smash Bros. despite so many fan requests. I wish people would do Krystal justice.

7 Pearl (Splatoon 2)

Come on, she's AWESOME.
A yellow-eyed MC_Princess (remember, the chicken came first).
Also, look at what she did at the end of Octo Expansion.
Her overall personality is just AMAZING. - Qryzx

Everyone seems to hate her

True - ParkerFang

It is because of Twintelle?

10 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.

The Contenders

She is mostly known for her appearances in the Mario Kart Franchise in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 as a playable character, but she also appears in other Mario games, including Yoshi's Island DS, in which more.

Underrated? Zelda? No.

17 Kadaj

He's not even in a video game - hunnyqueen09

Best character

18 Amy Rose Amy Rose is a fictional character in SEGA's Sonic the Hedgehog series. She is a pink anthropomorphic hedgehog with a cheerful, competitive personality, and is infatuated with the series' main character, Sonic. She serves as the first playable female character in the series.
19 Karel (Fire Emblem)

Karel has got to be the most misunderstood of all fictional characters. I swear... (Played the game many times, beat it, and knows who Karel is before getting into a discussion with an opinion like this)

1. While no fan theory is 100% canon and so on, the point still stands the fact that Karel is a good/heroic character who just happens to have gone insane. The rest of his family were bullies who didn't let him have the sword he wanted. Thus the madness began, and sees everyone as a worthy opponent at first, but he develops into a much better character and realizes that not everyone is a worthy foe and that family is important. Now, if Karel was really "evil", then he would never have joined the protagonists or became the Sword Saint. His sister, on the other hand, is an idiot and only existed to bear Fir, nothing else. Not every human or fictional character has a nice family like we do, unfortunately.

2. Karel did not kill because he wanted to. It was because ...more

Very true, sadly. Haters either hate him because he's vicious, or because of his looks. Thus they constantly demonize and antagonize him whenever they have the chance if they draw fanart or write fanfiction.

Seriously people. Karel is not a bad guy. Just because he is vicious, doesn't make him a villain, bad guy or antagonist. I'm so sick and tired of the demonization most people give him. This is probably the haters' fault, too. It has gotten so far that I no longer look at fanart or fanfiction of him anymore unless it is good. Karel seems to be more into anti-hero territory at worst, and even so, there are many other non-villain characters who acted much more villainous than he does.

Why don't people accept the fact that the Sword Demon became the Sword Saint?

It is likely that his family were bullies who didn't let him have the sword he wanted, and himself being the 'runt' of the bunch. This is why he turned out the way he did. But that doesn't stop him from getting good character development later on.

LOL, you sound like a hater if you think he's unlikable or complete scum.

He's the guy that kills his family, he's unlikable at best and complete scum at worst. He even tries to kill his sister.

20 Miles Tails Prower Miles Prower, more commonly known by his nickname Tails, is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is a significant main character after the title character Sonic, who is also his best friend.

Plus, Tails is my favorite Sonic character. Glad he returned as a playable character in Sonic Mania.

Sadly overshadowed by the likes of Shadow the Hedgehog.

Tails deserves to be praised. He's a classic.

21 Wendy O. Koopa Wendy O. Koopa is a female villain in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She is the only female member of the Koopalings and can usually be found assisting Bowser and Bowser Jr . on their wicked plans with the rest of the Koopalings . She first appeared in Super Mario Bros . 3 in 1988 and since then has been more.

Lol she's filler trash

Yes she is underrated - hunnyqueen09

Wendy is the best!

Ew she's the worst

22 Tidus Tidus is the main protagonist of Final Fantasy X, a role-playing video game developed by Square Enix.
23 Cloud Strife Cloud Strife is a fictional character and the main protagonist of Square Enix's 1997 role-playing video game Final Fantasy VII and several of its sequels and spin-offs.
24 Big the Cat

He's a similar character to Blaze, yet he's also underrated. Why does Blaze have fans, yet Big does not? Unfair.

Both Big and Blaze are awesome in my opinion.
