Top 10 Unneeded Mario Characters


The Top Ten

1 Pink Gold Peach Pink Gold Peach

The least needed and least wanted clone - MarioBros11

She is just a clone. The pink Gold flower does not exist.

This along with all of the baby characters are pointless.

Pink Gold Peach... nothing to explain. - DaisyandRosalina

2 Baby Rosalina Baby Rosalina Baby Rosalina is an infant version of the major character from the Mario Bros . Franchise, Rosalina . She first appeared in Mario Kart 8 as a playable character and is now one of 5 baby characters in the roster, alongside infant versions of Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Princess Daisy .

When Rosalina was a baby she had red hair not blonde. This ruins her storybook.

She was a predictable choiche for Mario Kart 8 but she goes aganist Rosalina's backstory! - DaisyandRosalina

3 Baby Daisy Baby Daisy

I can see a baby version of Daisy but why she didn't appeared in Yoshi games at least? - DaisyandRosalina

4 Waluigi Waluigi Waluigi is a selfish, greedy man who works closely with the infamous Wario. He is Luigi's rival and is known as the opposite of him. Waluigi first appeared in the Gameboy Color game, Mario Tennis as Wario's partner. He has appeared in every Mario Tennis game since, still remaining as Wario's partner. more.

He's not unneeded... - MarioBros11

He was created only to be a tennis partner for Wario. That's fine but why was he not in any major game? His only point is being Nintendo's first go to filler character for Mario spinoffs. How do his fans still think he's needed? Waluigi fans are so stupid - Randomator

THIS is an example on how a characters can be lazy, he was born only because they needed a tennis partner for Wario, has a poor personality, random abilites, no background and has helped the main plot one time, in Super Mario Maker, where he was just a filler AGAIN. Even his amiibo is lazy! And the worst part is that his fans still think he's needed. - DaisyandRosalina

For sure!

5 Tanooki Mario Tanooki Mario

If he's in S.M.B. 3 and Super Mario 3D World (and I think 3D Land, too), then he's not unneeded. - MarioBros11

No! Still looks great

6 Metal Mario Metal Mario

More useful in M64, looks better in MK8. It balances out. - MarioBros11

Pink Gold Peach and this looks like trophies not Characters

Ok as a power up he's fine but as a clone...NO! - DaisyandRosalina

7 Cat Peach Cat Peach

How is she here, and Cat Mario's not? - MarioBros11

8 Fly Guy

Still look amazing

9 Grand Goomba

I don't know who this is - MarioBros11

Out all the enemies, he's the most generic, we didn't really need him. - DaisyandRosalina

They make me hungry

I like how in the New Super Mario Bros. series where you jump on it and it splits into two normal Goombas. - TheYoshiPyro64

10 Koopa Kid

Koopa Kid doesn't even appear in Mario games anymore! Bowser Jr replaced him! But still Bowser Jr is better.

He exist only because Mario Party, what's the sense on add him? Who is him? - DaisyandRosalina

I added him because he has absolutely no reason to exist. He's annoying, useless, and looks like Baby Bowser and Bowser Jr. Then he copies the Koopalings since there is more than one Koopa Kid. Little annoying piece of crap. - DCfnaf

While he did come before Bowser Jr he has no reason to exist unlike Jr. He only appeared in Mario Party. Bowser Jr was in Sunshine and both Galaxy games. - Randomator

The Contenders

11 Dry Bowser Dry Bowser Dry Bowser is the fossilized version of the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise, Bowser. He first appeared in New Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo DS after Bowser had been dumped into the lava and was left with his skeleton. Since then, Dry Bowser has appeared as a villain in games like Super more.

He should've been in more than just Mariokart. - MarioBros11

I'm not saying he's useless as a skeletal form of Bowser, but he's useless as a separate character. - DCfnaf

Clone characters end of story - Randomator

12 Rosalina Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She first appeared in the popular Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 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 more.

SHE IS NOT UNNEEDED! Without her, Galaxy wouldn't be a thing! - MarioBros11

A stupid filler slot from the worst Mario game

We don't need her at all

No one asked for Fat Peach

13 Cosmic Mario
14 Baby Bowser Baby Bowser

Completely unneeded - MarioBros11

15 Princess Peach 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 more.

How is she on this list - MarioBros11

I don't usually stick up for peach, because I don't like her, (she's annoying) but, without her there wouldn't be a mario series.

One of the most important characters

16 Princess Daisy 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. more.

Worthless Peach clone

Peach recolor except not important

Daisy = filler therefore unnecessary

No... she was the only possible choiche for Super Mario Land, Peach was not good for a role in this game at all, they needed to create a new princess, Daisy! And what we got from Daisy? Super Mario Land (because the game will not fill without her), Super Mario Land 2 (no the first one, not the sequel), Wario, Wario Land games, Waluigi and Warioware games, Daisy has created an entire sub universe of characters and games.
This why bought back Daisy in Mario Tennis 64 was a good idea, and we got in spin-offs more develop, a baby versiob and background with Luigi. - DaisyandRosalina

17 The King of Subcon

He's an implied character because he was mentioned but he didn't phisically appeared, isn't he? We have a lot of implied characters: Bowser wife, Daisy's father, Wario's mother, Princess Eclair etc. They are here for add more background to characters or games. - DaisyandRosalina

18 Baby Luigi Baby Luigi
19 Mario 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 more.


Why is he on here?

He’s the leader, how is he not important?!

20 Baby Peach Baby Peach Baby Peach is the infant version of the major character from the Mario Series, Princess Peach. 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.

Really really unneeded. The only needed peach character is Peach herself. No one even likes peach, including myself, so why did nintendo have to make 3 annoying clones of her? UUUGGHHH!

21 MC Ballyhoo

Trash Whore Character

Just because he farts doesn't mean he's unneeded - MarioBros11
