Top 10 Unneeded Mario Characters

The Top Ten

1 Pink Gold Peach Pink Gold Peach is a character who debuts in Mario Kart 8, where she appears as an unlockable playable character.

This along with all of the baby characters are pointless.

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

As a character she is completely unnecessary

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

2 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 .

Uneeded filler trash who contradicts Rosalina's backstory - darthvadern

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

Baby Rosalina is the best

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

3 Baby Daisy

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

Slightly better than BR but bad - darthvadern

4 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 more.

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

Well of course we had to see him on here unfortunately... - darthvadern

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

He's not unneeded... - MarioBros11

5 Tanooki Mario

A LOT less needed than Waluigi - darthvadern

No! Still looks great

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

6 Metal Mario

This male gave birth to five clones that ruined Mario Kart 8's roster - darthvadern

Pink Gold Peach and this looks like trophies not Characters

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

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

7 Cat Peach

Slightly better than Tanooki guy - darthvadern

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

8 Fly Guy

Still look amazing

Not a character. Just a normal enemy - darthvadern

9 Grand Goomba

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

They make me hungry

Not a character. Just a normal enemy - darthvadern

I don't know who this is - MarioBros11

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

This guy is way worse than Waluigi - darthvadern

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

The Contenders

11 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.

You Rosalina haters are geniuses.

You Rosalina Haters are idiots. - DCfnaf

No one asked for Fat Peach

A stupid filler slot from the worst Mario game

12 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.

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

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

Useless as a seperate character I guess - darthvadern

13 Cosmic Mario

Not that uneeded - darthvadern

14 Baby Bowser

One of the most important ones actually and that's a fact you can not deny - darthvadern

Completely unneeded - MarioBros11

15 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.

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

How is she on this list - MarioBros11

Factually important - darthvadern

16 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.

Honestly this character is uneeded. Just a tomboyish version of Peach who could've easly been replaced by Peach in Super Mario Land - darthvadern

Peach recolor except not important

Worthless Peach clone

Daisy = filler therefore unnecessary

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

Who? - darthvadern

18 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!

This is Peach though so false. Also she served a purpose - darthvadern

19 Toadette Toadette is a character in the Mario series. She is a female Toad who first appeared in the Nintendo GameCube video game Mario Kart: Double Dash.

Serves no purpose

She and yoshi are needed - Yoshidude

Just a clone - darthvadern

20 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.

All koopalings serve equal amount of purpose - darthvadern

Trash Whore Character

21 Baby Luigi

Uh no - darthvadern

22 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.

If you say he is uneeded then you obviously don't know anything about him - darthvadern

Why is he on here?


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

23 MC Ballyhoo

He's irrelevant - darthvadern

24 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.

Honestly this guy isn't any impressive really. Everyone goes crazy over him because of his creative lines but he could've been replaced by any other villian in Bowser's Inside Story and it wouldn't change anything. Just another regular bad guy - darthvadern

He’s awful

25 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.

Not unneeded - MarioBros11

*Needed - darthvadern

26 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.

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

He's not uneeded. He's awesome - darthvadern

He's uneeded - Yoshidude

27 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.

She's awesome - darthvadern

28 Morton Koopa Jr.

Why not just put all Koopalings instead? - darthvadern

29 Plum

WHO? - darthvadern

30 Bowser Statue

There's nothing wrong with the bowser statue from Mario Tennis Aces other than the boss fight is the worst of the game - darthvadern

Are you talking about the ones in the one with the rabbit bosses and the cap?

31 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.

These are among the most important ones-_- - darthvadern
