Top Ten Ways Luigi is Better Than Mario

Ever since I was just about three, and learned about Mario, I've always chose Luigi over Mario. Now if you like Mario over Luigi, that is OK to me, however I hope you accept mine, as I have my opinions to, and mine are that Luigi is better!

The Top Ten

1 Luigi has better gameplay than Mario

In games such as, Super Mario Galaxy, or Super Mario 64 DS, Luigi is top tier when it comes to those games. Luigi is known to jump higher, flutter kick, and is more quicker. Mario on the other hand always has all-around stats in like every game he appears in. - Luigibuscus

What a Childish List, - VideoGamefan5


2 Luigi has more emotion than Mario

Despite being the sidekick, Luigi's personality is more in depth then his older brother Mario. Sure, he is known for acting scared every time, although he is man enough to overcome his fear, which many people seem to ignore. All we know about Mario is that he likes sports, and saving the princess. - Luigibuscus

Not Really - VideoGamefan5

This is one of the reasons why Luigi is better than Mario; like ALL original characters should have, Luigi shows more emotions than his older brother, Mario. He constantly shows his scared, upset, happy, angry, and confusing emotions throughout the series. Plus, Luigi has been my super all-time favorite ever since when I was just a 2-year-old toddler! I often relate to him throughout my life and adventures I've had!

Since I'm a girl who is also very shy, timid, AND more cautious, I was frequently bullied at school, especially when numerous of students called me names I strongly dislike, physically, mentally, and emotional abusing me, and spreading extremely harmful gossips about me, and as a result, I felt like a unsuccessful little girl compared to my more-praised older sister. That all changed when I played Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon on my 3DS, and my gosh was it great! He means the world to me, and is adorably awesome, no matter what! 😁😄 - SarahPetraStellington

3 Luigi is more funny then Mario

Luigi likes to bring comedy into these Mario games because of his humor. Mario always takes things seriously, which would make the game a little bit more boring. If you want to create a great game, then you have to at least have some comedy for seven year olds to enjoy. - Luigibuscus

Bravery=/=Humor, Big The Cat Makes Humor, Shadow Doesn't, Does That Mean Big Is Better? - VideoGamefan5

Because he’s a coward unlike Mario - Randomator

4 Luigi cares for his people

Sure, Mario does care for people, but not as much as Luigi. Luigi likes to be their for everyone. In Mario And Luigi: Dream Team, Luigi was cheering someone up, while Mario was just standing their doing nothing. - Luigibuscus

I Feel Like Mario Takes To Much Credit And He's Always The One To Get The Gold And Doesn't Let Luigi Take Hus Credit, Considering Its Been Proven That Luigi Is Stronger Than Mario. But It Doesn't Bother Luigi And Those Are Reasons Why Luigi Actually Cares - TundraTopTenners

When? - VideoGamefan5

5 Luigi is more loveable then Mario

Luigi is kind, nice, and gentle, and what does he get in return? NOTHING! I get tired and sick of when Nintendo makes characters say Mario and the other one. They act like they don't care about him, and forget that Luigi has a fanbase to, and they also act like Mario is the only character! Mario can sometimes act like a jerk, rude to Luigi (As shown in New Super Mario Bros. Wii), and mean. Luigi acts more nicer, but get's treated like he's nothing! - Luigibuscus

Some Nintendo fans, mostly Mario fans, treating Luigi like he is nothing makes me very, very sad. I love him so much, and seeing him like that reminds me of myself too. I love my neighbors, friends, and family, and what did I get from other people? Negative views! What the heck! I was called a coward by many people who don't even know me. Students at school bullied me as well, result me in sadness. Luigi was the one I can truly relate to, and when I do, I felt like him. I felt like I need to overcome my own fears, and step up to what I need to do. I'm now still fighting to do it. - SarahPetraStellington

Weak Reason - VideoGamefan5

6 Mario sucks in games

Mario absolutely sucks in most of the adventure games, unlike Luigi who acts like a god in these games. I'm telling the truth when I'm telling you this, but when I played as Mario for Super Mario Galaxy, It took me THREE YEARS to complete the game 100%. However, when I unlocked Luigi and played through the game with him, it took me literally a MONTH just to complete the game 100%. That is proof that Luigi is better at Mario in games. - Luigibuscus

I bet you barely played this game at all with Mario and then played it every day with Luigi. Weak reason - Randomator

Not really. - DatBoiSquirtle

7 Luigi saves better things than Mario

We can't really say this for Luigi's Mansion for the Nintendo GameCube, but for Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, we can! In this game, Luigi was such a badass because not only did Luigi rescued his brother Mario, but he, saved the entire world, saved some Toads along the way, clear an entire mansion, free every ghost, collect over a $1,000,000, and defeat King Boo AND Bowser. All Mario does is rescue the princess, and only has to deal with Bowser. Sure, Mario did save an entire galaxy twice in Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario Galaxy 2, but let's be real here, if Peach weren't involved with all of it, then Mario wouldn't have done it in the first place! Luigi did it because he cared about everyone. - Luigibuscus

Nope - Randomator

Yeah, if Luigi isn’t in the series, Peach will be kidnapped forever because Bowser kidnaps her, then if Mario tries to rescue her, Bowser will definitely send King Boo to kidnap Mario, and trap in the painting forever. But because of Luigi, King Boo is defeated and Mario is rescued, then the Princess will be saved as Mario and Luigi can beat Bowser just as they always do

What Better? - VideoGamefan5

8 Mario has fewer friends than Luigi

I know that everyone at The Mushroom Kingdom admires Mario, and thinks of him more then a hero then Luigi, but Bowser's entire troop hates Mario. Sure, they hate Luigi to, but not as much as how they hate Mario. - Luigibuscus

Weak reason - Randomator

9 Everyone plays as Luigi

I literally stopped being player one in new super mario bros wii just so I could be luigi

I've read comments of a ton of people who tell us that they always prefer Luigi over Mario, including me, who tell us that Luigi has better gameplay. Mario is boring to play as. Luigi has more unique gameplay, and overall better stats for everyone to enjoy Luigi better. - Luigibuscus

Not everyone - ParkerFang

Haha NO - Randomator

10 Luigi is more famous on polls over Mario

Yes. So is Yoshi.

No he is not

I wanted to see polls of who people thought were more better, and literally every poll I saw, the majority went to Luigi, in fact, almost everyone who has done polls were Luigi while like 10 people voted for Mario. That is seriously how famous Mario is. - Luigibuscus

Polls? , What Polls? , Polls For Weak Reasons? - VideoGamefan5

The Contenders

11 Mario is ugly

I think luigi should be made first he is more brave then mario. luigi is awesome he can jump higher and run faster.I wish you can be luigi in all the games luigi is braver because he went in a scary mansion and he did not give up! he killed bowser and king boo this is why luigi is better leave a like if you think luigi should be older and made first

Just look at that ugly face of his.

Looks don’t matter - Randomator

12 Luigi is Yoshi's mama

The cartoon is irrelevant! - Randomator

The Cartoon is NON CANNON nice try - Randomator

13 Luigi can do more things than Mario
14 Luigi is More Relatable Than Mario

I always relate to Luigi because he is more timid, shy, and cautious than his brother just like me. He is even willing to overcome his fears when he needs to for the sake of his older brother, and I'm still trying to overcome my own fears for the sake of my family and friends. In fact, Luigi is caring, fun-loving, sweet, and kind, but gets treated like he's nothing, which I can also relate because I'd always get frequently treated like I'm good-for-nothing, breaking my heart emotionally. I always love him, and I always will. - SarahPetraStellington

15 Luigi has more powers than Mario

Mario may have a lot of power ups such as fire brand and ice flower and cape feather, but Luigi has that too, including Thunderhand, Poltergust 5000 And has better hammer skills.

16 Mario is fat

That reason, right there, is just absolutely weak. This is NOT a good reason why Luigi is better than Mario. Besides, appearance don't even matter; thus, the characteristic of a character is what REALLY matter. :| - SarahPetraStellington

17 Luigi has a better Smash moveset than Mario’s in Melee and Brawl
18 Luigi Looks Friendlier Than Mario

Luigi looks WAY more friendlier than Mario since Super Mario Bros(1985).
