Top Ten Worst Mario Bros. Characters

The Top Ten

1 Peach 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.

Peach is the one who sucks, not Rosalina. I hate the stupid rabid Peach fans who hate Rosalina and Daisy because they think they are Peach knockoffs, these people who think like that are idiots. What the hell is Peach even good for? She never does anything, and gets kidnapped in almost every Mario game. Yet people adore Peach like she is a god, its people like them who make me hate her, you don't see this many rabid Daisy and Rosalina fans, hell, you don't see as many crazy Princess Zelda fans. Worst. Princess. Ever. I don't care how happy/bubbly she is, she still turns me off, as do most of her fans. Go ahead and flame me crazy Peach fans, prove to me that you think like that.

I don't adore Peach like a god. I love Rosalina and Daisy just as much as Peach. I'm not a crazy fan either. Out of all of the princesses Rosalina is my fave. How about you calm yourself down?

Peach is the one who is insane, not Pauline. People hate Pauline because of Peach. Um...pauline is the normal one. She's ok until Peach came. Then pauline went crazy and grew boobs, changed her dress and like...became a whore. People say Pauline steals Mario, but its Mario who chooses to visit her once in a's not her fault. I'm not a Pauline fan...but people hate a legit character because of a stereotype. People like peach because of "she's a girl" or "she is cute" or "it's not her fault she gets kidnapped" heck yes it's her fault! If I was a toad, and some large monster tried to kill me, I'd run off too! And I wouldn't help Peach rule MK either. (MK is mushroom kingdom) rosalina is awesome, I read her comments on this list...they aren't even about her!

Peach is in lots of games but you can't really play as her. Her dress is so long and she trips. She has Perry the umbrella to help her. What if Hammer Brother throws a hammer and takes Perry to sabotage. WEAKLING PEACH? What if Daisy or any other female takes the lead of Peach? Pauline is who should - Nintnedo lies about a fake Pauline. (Pauline was the one on Donkey Kong until this craphead joins her spot. She needs Mario and Luigi's help. She can't fight by herself? Do you know how much girls in Mario should of had her place?

How the literal heck is Peach the worst? Without Peach, there would be no plot or point in the Mario games. Without Peach, you wouldn't have healing powers in RPG or be able to levitate in Super Mario 3D World. Without Peach, Mario and Luigi would've been locked up to rot in Bowser's castle in Super Princess Peach, heck, that game wouldn't even exist. Without Peach, there wouldn't have been a good female character in the older mario Kart and Mario Party games, you probably would have to be stuck with Daisy. So, in conclusion, Peach is not the worst, so take her off the number one spot! - RosalinaX

2 Pink Gold Peach Pink Gold Peach

Takes away classic characters like birdo to add this alternative form of a character that hasn't been referenced anywhere. - HELLADERE120

"I hate and I mean HATE all of you people! She deserves to be lower. New characters are cool so WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!? YOU PEOPLE ARE JUST RUINING MY LIFE SAYING ALL OF MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS ARE DUMB, STUPID, RUDE, ETC! SO STOP ALREADY! "

Do you know why you got only thumbs-down instead of thumbs-ups? That's because Pink Gold Peach ruined Mario Kart 8 and it's all her fault that Dixie Kong lost her chance of making her debut in the Kart spinoffs. Sorry, PGP fans, you can moan and groan all you want, but Dixie got robbed and it's all Pink Gold Peach's fault. Baby Rosalina and Pink Gold Peach replaced Honey Queen, which made, MADE me really mad. There are plenty of deserved characters like Dry Bones, Diddy Kong, Funky Kong, Dry Bowser, King Boo, King Bob-Omb, Nabbit, Kamek, Vivian, Honey Queen, Dixie Kong, or Tiny Kong than those fools which haven't been referenced anywhere in past Mario titles.

Correction. SOME new characters are cool. Definitely not this one - Berger

As far as I'm concerned, this is the only character on the list I despise (besides Baby Mario and Baby Peach). The rest of these characters are original and unique. I don't hate Daisy as much as I used to and same with Birdo. Waluigi...I don't know. But yeah, Pink Gold Peach is SO STUPID! Whoever made this character should be fired because of how lazy and unoriginal it is. All of the unique characters in the other games had character. Petey Piranha was a boss in Sunshine, King Boo is Luigi's Primary enemy, Rosalina is from the Galaxy Games...EVEN FUNKY KONG was the engineer shopkeeper in the DK Games so he has a place in the Mario Games. WHAT IS THIS CHARACTER? Was Metal Mario secretly making out with Pink Gold Peach? At least Metal Mario was shown in Super Smash Bros as a separate character. Pink Gold Peach has no right to exist. - DCfnaf

This character is the root of all garbage. Half of our favorite character's didn't get in because of this fake poser. - RosalinaX

3 Birdo 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.

I don't like that gender confused dinosaur. It freaks me out *barfs*!

apparently she is a shemale. she looks feminine but nintendo said that in some game dialogue it's HE and in others its SHE - munkee_linc97

Just... No. It shoots eggs out of that tube thing that's supposed to be a mouth. Because of that, it can only make weird noises, not talk. I call it an it because I have no clue what gender it is.

I actually like birdo. I don’t get why you people always hate on her. - Videogamesgal

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.

How is Waluigi Luigi's rival? Luigi has done nothing to this guy and Waluigi has no reason to hate Luigi. "Wah! Waluigi no like green counterpart because of his tennis style. Wah..." Waluigi has no motive, drive or even abilities. He's just...there...

He has a upside down l on his hat all because wario turned the m around to make a w didn't mean retarded waluigi had to what a turd - FreddyGodzilla

The essence of a bad character. Many people hate Pink Gold Peach rightfully, but Waluigi gets away with all the same faults:

-Filler character: created for a spin-off, never evolved from it. His only notable role is a Dance Dance Revolution game, which isn't even a real Mario game.
-Uncreative: Pink Gold Peach is a mix of Metal Mario and Peach. Waluigi is a mix of Wario and Luigi. There's not a single thing original about him: personnality is copied from Wario, the whole unlucky and ignored person is copied from Luigi.
-Useless to the franchise: Wario lives without him in his games, and Luigi couldn't care less about him. This says a lot coming from a character known for being a coward.

Why does Waluigi gets away with being an awful character? Oh right, memes apparently make him a great character and make him deserve to be in Smash and have main roles for some reason.
Waluigi is meme fuel, not an actual character.

Nintendo was so uncreative at this point. Literally has no personality or need to be in the games. - RosalinaX

5 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 .

She would've been replaced by dry bones for the Mario kart 8 roster. Or even ROB for metal Mario.

I'm sorry but she is my vote. I love Rosalina she is amazing. And Baby Rosalina is cute and not annoying. However there is one major flaw that bothers me so much... SHE IS INACCURATE! ! Rosalina was a red head who wore white and had sapphire blue eyes and her baby is bleach blond with a light bluish teal dress and cyan eyes. What gives Nitendo? Did Rosalina dye her hair red and made her eyes dark blue then Changed it back to normal in space? Did you forget what she looked like as a child? It bothers me so much it makes me not like her. This is why she is my least favorite character because she is inaccurate

Why does this abomination even exist! Why not use existing characters like Baby Wario or Baby DK?

Ruined Rosalina's backstory completely. Ugly, useless, and stupid waste of filler space. - RosalinaX

6 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.

The reason I think Rosalina is one of the worse Mario characters is because of the way they changed her personality and obliterated everything they tried to build up in the first Mario Galaxy. Rosalina is a a character who cares deeply for the Lumas and loves them with all her heart, however do you honestly think it makes sense for her to be running around in a cat suit or participating in races? Rosalina, before, was a quiet and reserved person who was probably a tad awkward around people. Nintendo began shoe-horning her into games because of her sudden rise of popularity. In doing so, they took away what made Rosalina a good character. She suddenly smiles and squeals and sounds generally... expressive, there is nothing wrong with being expressive but it's just not Rosalina it contradicts the reticent character they built her up to be. Rosalina has been without human contact for at least a couple centuries, she won't suddenly be able to assimilate so quickly back to human ...more

I don't see why people viewed her as she or socially awkward in SMG. Did she really seem that way when bringing Mario on her ship and giving info and stuff when needed? Cause really I don't see it how it would be that to me be whatever...

Gosh I hate Rosalina. Back then I adored her (But Daisy was my favorite) and now I think Nintendo is just too... Ugh. I can't even explain. She has received so much game and she hasn't even been around for a decade yet. She made it to the Mario Kart games pretty quickly, and she already has a baby version. Like what MAN?! Daisy hadn't gotten her baby version until years later. And she's now in SSB when daisy has been in line for THREE times now! And Peach! I used to never liked her but with Rosalina in the way, I was hating the wrong person the whole time. Peach is pretty nice and has been with Daisy the whole time. The whole Peach/Daisy friendship is fading and people are all like Peach and Rosalina this and Peach and Rosalina that.

I think she should've just stayed in the Mario Galaxy series. She is really just a boring character. People just like her because she's "smart", "wise", "sexy", and she is actually none of those things! I hate Rosalina's fanbase far more than I hate Daisy's, they're all rabid and act like she's a "god". Rosalina looks a lot more like a Peach clone than Daisy does, they have the same face shape, similar voice, blonde hair, almost identical eyes, and very similar personalities! Rosalina's "woo hoos" are the most fake sounding thing said in Mario history, I swear. I probably wouldn't mind Rosalina as much if she wasn't so overrated. Why is she in Smash if she's kind and loving?

I don't know, why is Mario and Luigi in Smash? Why are all these nice and happy protagonists in smash? Because Rosalina is also a HERO. - DCfnaf

I only agree if we exclude Galaxy. Not to say she can't smile but it's just unlike her, basically a contradiction. Compare Galaxy to spinoffs, and you'll get my point if you didn't before. - Qryzx

7 Baby Daisy Baby Daisy Baby Daisy is the infant version of the major character in the Mario Bros . franchise, Princess Daisy . She is known for her appearances as a playable character in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 . She is also found as a playable character in Super Mario Sluggers for the Wii .

Why is that stupid Baby Daisy trying to get fame? First she ruins my favorite Mario Kart game, Mario Kart Wii, then Mario Super Sluggers and Mario Kart 8? How many Mario games is the no good, pointless and stupid character can get away with everything? Always trying to win, and making annoying noises that makes you mad every time she passes someone. I agree Nintendo should eliminate that pointless Baby Daisy. I hate her and she's just garbage!

I don't think one character (well two) can ruin a game. Mario Kart Wii had the best roster - DCfnaf

She is a wart on one of my favorite Kart Racing games. Why was she invented? Why does she continue to exist? How can Nintendo get away with such a character and Sonic gets scorn whenever anyone besides him or Eggman appears? Why?!

Why does she exist? In Mario Kart Wii, she could easily been replaced by Baby Wario or Baby Donkey Kong, at least they already had been invented in an actual Yoshi game. Or even better, swap her with a non-baby character like shy guy. She is a waste of space.

She could've been replaced with a known character called Shy Guy!

Honestly she is so CUTE! But also so pointless... - DaisyandRosalina

8 Metal Mario Metal Mario

I don't know why people hate on Pink Gold Peach but then turn around and say they're ok with Metal Mario. He is basically the root of all garbage. As soon as they introduce him they get rid of veterans. Then in the next game they keep him but get rid of honey bee and wiggled who are way more unique. Not only that but after his crappy introduction now they've poured in other trash like Cat Peach, Tanooki Mario, Baby Rosalina, pink gold Peach. Basically things went downhill after his addition to Mario kart 7.

YES! Absolutely! I said the same thing! He is the root of all the garbage out there! Baby Rosalina probably would've come anyway, but the rest are definitely trash made after Metal Mario - DCfnaf

Dear Nintendo please stop putting Mario over and over again and calling him a new character. There's already Baby Mario, and now there's Tanooki Mario and the real Mario. FOUR separate versions of Mario in Mario Kart 8. It makes the roster incredibly bland especially when you're also clogging it up with clones of other characters as well!

Did someone call the garbage truck?
Seriously, this piece of crap made it into games and other worthy characters didn't? That's just annoying, Nintendo. I'd rather have a FLOWER as a playable character then this pile of trash! - RosalinaX

He started this whole clone train so we gotta hate him for that - darthvadern

9 Kamek 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 more.

Kamek is one of the most annoying Mario characters. This includes his arrogant personality, baby harassment and his witch-like cackle (which is why some mistake him as female). He's second only to the koopalings. You can't get more annoying than seven clones who act as guard boss filler every time. However, Kamek should'be gotten into Mario Kart well before the krapalings.

Should definitely be higher up. In MP9 story mode in the later boards you only play against him and you HAVE to win. If you lose you have to restart the board. Once I was just about to win a board and Kamek just HAD to battle me for half my stars. I lost. He laughed. I wanted to punch him.

At least kamek has character and does various things. Also, I agree with the above comment about the koopalings. Holy crap, the koopalings are the worst characters bar none. Those seven have no personality and they suck as bosses. People talk about Waluigi and Daisy being filler? Having the same stupid, seven characters stinking up boss areas with repetitious garbage is filler personified.

Annoying brat, I hate him in every game he appears in. - DaisyandRosalina

10 Daisy 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.

I find Daisy annoying and overrated as she is only popular because she's a "tomboy." I also find her fans to be big hypocrites as they cry "non-canon" if you use spin offs as evidence for someone's strength but they use Mario Party 3 as evidence that Daisy is "stronger" than Bowser.

Daisy has way too many haters to be considered overrated. Also, you only hate her because she's doesn't act like a traditional princess. - LemonComputer

I notice a lie shoved about Daisy. She's so girly even more than Princess Peach. She doesn't even get picked to play the sports games and everyone wants Daisy on more games. She's on 98% of the Mario games! The only ones she's missing on is the Mario Galaxies and Super Mario Bros. , also Super Smash Bros which rocks! Deanna Mustard must of been paid a fortune to voice Daisy. I like Birdo better than Daisy and everyone hates Birdo!

I don't hate her anymore since I think she is underused. You want to know what I do hate? HER WHINY FANBASE. Her fanbade makes the character VERY overrated, especially on here. Don't give me that "Peach is overrated" crap because nobody likes her. Daisy Fans accuse Rosalina of taking her spot when she doesn't do anything. Daisy didn't do much in the games BEFORE Rosalina was introduced so she's not doing ANYTHING. You people can complain about how overrated Rosalina is just because she's becoming a staple character, but the real reason is because you are all defending Daisy, who gets very little hate nowadays. - DCfnaf

She's peach but uglier and not interesting.

If people like baby luigi than why don't they like baby Mario. He is not the worst character ever

12 Wario 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.

He's a fat, disgusting, slob with poor hygiene who is a self-centered hater - Celestius

Wario is gross and rude but you got to love him I don't know why but he's rudeness and grossness is mostly what makes wario funny I love wario he is a super awesome amazing unattractive weird little fatty but still he's awesome

Sometimes he's the bad guy, sometimes he just tries to get back his gold, other times he saves alternate universies? So is he a villain or a hero? Who can say?

That's what I like about him. He's both a hero and a villain. It makes him a really interesting character. Where you cheer for the bad guy - Randomator

Skinny legend - DaisyandRosalina

13 Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. As his name implies, he is the son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

No way! Bowser Jr. is awesome! In Super Mario Galaxy 2 he has an enormous robot monster that shoots Bullet Bills, Banzai Bills and shockwaves. And it has hammers for hands. Not to mention the other awesome beasts he controls in that game. This is a TERRIBLE list.

Why does he get so much hate? I'm just glad he's not "Projectile fling and shell spin Koopa #8" people should stop complaining that he replaced the Koopalings. Those seven uninspired filler can go to hell. - DCfnaf

Even if his voice is a bit irritating, I have a soft spot for him because he's the main villain of my favourite game (Super Mario Sunshine).

Bowser Jr>>>>>Koopalings

At least he is less repetetive and he has some first level develop. - DaisyandRosalina

14 MC Ballyhoo

They somehow replaced Yellow Toad with an even worse host in Mario Party 8. There were literally BILLIONS of better options. I'd rather Dixie Kong as a host. NOBODY LIKES MC BALLYHOO! But, thank goodness he was gone as a host in later Mario Party series.

Top Ten Worst Mario Party Hosts

Top 1: MC Ballyhoo/Big Top.

Top 2: Toadsworth (Mario Party 7).

Top 3: Toad (Mario Party 1/Mario Party 2/Mario Party 4, my favorite Mario Party games).

Top 4: Tumble (Mario Party 3/Mario Party Advance, my second favorite Mario Party games)

Top 5: Koopa Kid (Mario Party 2/Mario Party 4).

He's a dumb host. Yellow Toad is much better!

I like him - darthvadern

15 Luigi Luigi Luigi is a fictional 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 but taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Mario more.

Gee, people wonder why he's a bad character. Look at the comment below. "If you don't like Luigi, then you should go to a high cliff and throw yourself off of it! " That is a representation of how immature his fans are. Otherwise, I like his character. Just not his fans.

I like the fans that are mature enough to realise that not everyone likes Luigi, I like him but he isn't my favorite character. - KennyRulz244444

I don't get why people hate on Mario only to defend Luigi when it was Luigi who is the derivative of Mario and so people should be more respectful to Mario.

There are huge Luigi haters out there who take Mario overshadowing him too seriously. Example: DarkSonic89.

The fans treat him like a god. Need I say more? - RosalinaX

16 Wendy O. Koopa 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.

She's a spoiled fat brat who poops in her diapers all day screaming "Daddy, I want this, I want that" into Bowser's face (P.S. bOWSER IS EPIC)

In super Mario brothers 3 the cartoon she would whine all the time! You would wanna tell her to shut up and go to bed now

And this is a reason why I strongly hate The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3!

I remember being little and watching the Mario show and was so happy until she came on. I hated her and still do. Her boss fights are always too easy or too hard Nintendo find a balance

How is Luigi above her? She is literally the definition of filler. - LittleAwesomeApple

17 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.

Baby Peach is taking out chances for radical veterans in Mario Kart 8. I want Dry Bones, Diddy Kong, Honey Queen, Birdo, Kamek, Candy Kong, Bowser Jr. , King Boo, Dixie Kong, or Cranky Kong in that game instead of her. I would rather play as any of these characters instead of this stupid clone of Peach.

Far uglier then anybody. When she screams I would kill her. I would kill her for living, being selfish, fooling Mario and being happy, because I read up that If she wins a race, she shakes her head in both directions as you know. This releases poo out of her dummy to kill everyone. She steals their money and buys a disguise so that Mario will want to save her when she is kidnapped. Next time, I'll let bowser hang, draw and quarter her, an when he does, ill party all night. Until then, I can't breathe

Baby Peach comes in retarded in Mario games. She is from Daisy who is easily not a main character. The only game she is in is Mario Kart and she is nonsense on the game. Nintendo, please take her off and replace her with Honey Queen, Dixie Kong, lemme, lakitu, shy guy, kamek, or larry if it is possible.

Not filler, but annoying nevertheless - darthvadern

18 Bowser 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 more.

I hate Bowser due to how he keeps enlisting those damn koopalings. Someone really needs to kill those seven garbage tier tortoises so we can have a variety of bosses in the Mario adventure games again. Kill the krapalings!

He is a villan. So he must be the worst. But he ROX at being a villan!

I'm so sick of Bowser being the final boss of EVERYTHING. Dream Team...Paper Jam...Color Splash...Mario+Rabbids...Aces. Dark Luigi or the Wario Bros could've been the final boss, but no. It's this grossly overused oaf.

Well, his plans are lame but still a good character. - DaisyandRosalina

19 Pauline Pauline Pauline, also known as Daniella Verducci, is the original damsel-in-distress whom Mario must rescue from the eponymous ape in the original Donkey Kong.

Pauline went from being a bland and boring character to a bland and boring character tied to an ear canal bleeding song. "I'll be your 1up girl! " *barfs*

Super Mario is a whimsical adventure series. Relatively speaking, Pauline is just too normal. Her identity and personality are just too plain and dull.

Aces turned her into a busty bimbo.

She's good, however I find her highly overrated since Super Mario Odyssey - darthvadern

What do you MEAN? She didn't even appear in a main series game until Super Mario Odyssey! 30+ years since Donkey Kong and she isn't' even playable or seen anywhere. You really can't say she's overrated. - RosalinaX

20 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.

The name of the show is Mario the games are named Mario, so in Mario's defense he is the best. Also he gets a princess and a cool brother. And say you like action while watching or playing Mario he has a lot of enemies like Bowser.

Mario is a really bland character. What are his motivations? What's he like? We just don't know. And in games like Mario Bros. 2 and 3D World where other characters are playable, his lack of special abilities makes him inferior to them. Simply put, Mario is not fit to be the main character. In any other role I would not care, but as a main character he just serves to highlight how much better everyone else would be in his role.

The way I see it, Mario is meant to represent the player. His actions are those chosen by the player. His personality is bland unless altered by the player.
So, I guess Mario is... a Zombie?

"Mario is definitely not a hero, because in super Mario 64 wiggler says that Mario flooded his house and Mario has to stomp on the cater pillar to kill it. Also later in the game Mario has to drop a baby penguin from a cliff. In super Mario sticker star Mario has to force a shy guy and chase hi until the shy guy gets eaten by a piranha plant while Mario smiles happily. Curse this red monster that kills poor mushrooms and turtles! "

Uh how was Mario supposed to know how Wigglers live in paintings? Besides, Wigglers are moronic hot-heads that flip out over EVERYTHING as shown in BIS so really the majority of the fault for the Wigglers suffering is on the WIGGLER itself.

And the penguin being dropped off the cliff that was the player being an ass not Mario.

He never had to kill the baby penguin. The player does that. Also, Wiggler has a power star. Therefore works for Bowser, therefore he brought it upon himself, Mario flooding his house was lucky, and anyway, how did Wiggler know he did that - Berger

The biggest stereotype in the franchise... but at least he is recurring enough to make you like him. - DaisyandRosalina

21 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.

Another redundant character that should be a costume and not a separate character.

Dry Bowser is a clone of Bowser who is getting shoved into games simply because he looks awesome. - DCfnaf

Exactly what I was going to say. He is a clone as much as Metal Mario and Pink Gold Peach. Yet while they get hate he gets away with it simply because of his looks. Same applies to Dry bones - Randomator

People hate on all the clones except him?

Like Pink Gold Peach, she isn't a Mario Bros character. Is this list just contain Peach's costumes from a franchise irrelevant to Mario Bros? - Qryzx

Okay. This one is far more understandable than the rest, but still. It's not UNIQUE in any aspect. It's just Koopa with some armor! Come on, people. If you HAVE to have another Koopa in the Mario Kart series, why not Kamek INSTEAD of (not in addition to) Hammer Bro? He at least has somewhat of a personality.

Notice people are saying the same thing about different characters. by the way this thing is cool but annoying

After his first debut as a playable character in „Mario Superstar Baseball“ (2005), he became a fan-favorite and also got playable in other spin-offs of the Mario series.

I play as Dry Bones in Mario Kart Wii and I always win, YOU FAT IDIOT! So, take him off this list.

You can freeze and throw him in Super Mario Bros.

25 Ludwig von Koopa Ludwig von Koopa 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.

I hate the koopalings so much. Since the option for voting for the koopalings as a group is now gone I decided to vote for this bastard the self proclaimed leader of the koopalings. People, if you hate the koopalings, then let your voices be heard here. Worthless boss filler is what the koopalings are.

The koopalings have zero personalities or value. Those seven are st overrated skins meant to be filler for something of actual interest. Worthless.

I hate the koopalings. They're uninspired, uninteresting, overused, overrated and are a fantastic excuse to be downright lazy with the bosses.

Kill them.

26 Perry the Umbrella

Perry the Umbrella sucks! And Princess Peach sucks on parasols.

I can't yet decide whether Perry the Parasol or Perry the Platypus is worse, but I will have to go with Perry the Parasol. Seriously? A parasol?

You hate a character that isn't even a character and doesn't exist in the Mario Bros franchise? - Qryzx

27 Koopa Kid

Still more tolerable than the garbage koopalings, but that's not saying much.

I hate him so much! He should be much higher! - DCfnaf

Replace the garbage koopalings with him. He's slightly more tolerable.

He's seriously one of the least memorable characters in the series ever - darthvadern

28 Morton Koopa Jr. Morton Koopa Jr.

Morton is an angry disgusting slob who belches everywhere on his skin and yells, "Daddy, cause Mario some danger, Daddy, cause the other heroes danger too! " right at Bowser's face. I almost went into a coma, he's creepy.

"I don't know how the hell to be a half decent boss! "

Um...he should be #2, Birdo should be the first! All he says is BUT KING DAD in a corny British accent.

I really like him - darthvadern

29 Lakitu Lakitu

He looks like a grandpa with those glasses. He throws spikes guys at you and is incredibly hard to kill. Have you ever noticed that after killing him he sometimes reapers in the level. In Mario kart he takes forever to save you. Why was he playable in Mario kart 7 and 8 he already has a role in the game. Make him higher. He needs to be not top 5 but definitely top 10

Take him off this list because his kart combinations have a good acceleration bonus.

Are you serious? He should have never been a character in the first place. He already has a role in the game. - Randomator

I love Lakitu! Especially in Mario Kart 7, I always play as him!

So annoying dude - darthvadern

30 Toadette 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.

I know why she's here. Why is she so underrated. She has been in a main series title. Yes Captain Toad and Paper Mario count. So I don't understand why people hate her. And if they make a toad character mainly designed for girls, I'm just okay with that. I don't hate her. At least with her you have a female partner for Toad unlike some other characters (cough cough Pink Gold Peach) - DCfnaf

Why the hell is she on here? She is underrated and really deserves a bigger role in the Super Mario Bros. Franchise. I personally love Toadette and I'm not just saying this because I like her but because it's true.

Edit: I'm so glad she's playable in New Super Mario Bros Deluxe. Three Cheers for Toadette! - RosalinaX

At least she's unique unlike Daisy and Blue Peach - WendyIsQueen

Better than Toad, but still a clone - darthvadern

31 Toad 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. He first appeared in the classic game, USA exclusive Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES. Since then he has been a reoccurring more.

"The princess never commanded the Toads to protect her"

Then what are millions of them doing in her castle, just hanging out there to discuss how pointless and useless they are that there's not even one of their kind can be able to defend her despite at least one commenting on how 'he's the best'? Yes a couple could be servants, cooks (they'd most likely be in the kitchen though), one be a messenger etc... But I'm sure the kingdom would try and get some guards to protect the castle/princess especially when a certain dragon-turtle does not give up and know he can't die/isn't dead yet. And guess what? Mario isn't a guard. She never ordered Mario that he has to protect her. Yet every time he sees Peach in Bowser's clutches he goes and stops him while these pathetic morons don't even try but makes someone else do it that's not even his job to do so.

"He's a mushroom civilian. Of course he runs from Bowser's Army. What did he ever do to Luigi? (one or two ...more

"Toad is cute and awesome, he shouldn't be on this list! "

No you only see him as awesome cause he's cute. But deep down Toad is a pathetic hideous monster. Why would you like SOMETHING that picks on poor innocent Luigi for the same problem he has? Why like something that never does IT'S job and forces someone else to do it, yet clam he's the best when he runs away from Bowser and his minions? He should be #1 so don't kid yourself

He's a mushroom civilian. Of course he runs from Bowser's Army. What did he ever do to Luigi? (one or two incidents of teasing don't count.) - Berger

He seriously need to have fun as he keeps being a referee or a host or a sidekick in Mario party 1 to 4 and advance, Mario tennis, Mario golf, Mario and sonic, and Mario football and Mario baseball. It's unfair if he can't have fun!

For an ordinary mushroom civilian who doesn't have crazy powers like Mario or Peach has, he's one of the best. He tries to help rescue the Princess in any way he can, providing helpful tips to Mario and also acting as a playable character in main series game. - RosalinaX

Why is Yoshi on here? Yoshi is awesome! Take him off here!

People have different opinions, so no they shouldn't take him off just because you like him. - Icecreamandlove

Why, why, WHY would people hate YOSHI!?

Why the heck is Yoshi on here?! He's Awesome! - Aaa2

He's boring let's be honest - WendyIsQueen

33 Donkey Kong 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.


Top 10 Worst Donkey Kong Games

Top 1: Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast. 2.3/10.

Top 2: Diddy Kong Racing DS. 2.5/10.

Top 3: Donkey Kong Jr. Math. 2.8/10.

Top 4: Donkey Kong Country 3 (for the GBA). 3/10.

Top 5: Donkey Kong Country Returns. 3.4/10.

Top 6: Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. 3.5/10.

Top 7: Donkey Kong (ported versions minus the NES port). 3.8/10.

Top 8: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. 4.1/10.

Top 9: Donkey Konga. 4.3/10.

Top 10: Donkey Kong 3 (ported versions minus the NES port). 4.7/10.

Maybe a villain or a hero? Everyone brags about Dixie as his daughter, but she's someone else's kid who married Diddy.

No hate but I find him overpraised - darthvadern

36 Baby Luigi Baby Luigi

They should have dropped the stupid babies instead of the unique characters. No one that matters even likes the babies.

Since when are babies ever ugly, I like little Baby Luigi. Haters are probably thinking that he crys a lot and doesn't contain much attention of when he receives a major role in Partners in Time. He is NOT useless. Nor is Baby Mario. Just because in the Yoshi's Island series that he has the damsel-in-distress, doesn't mean he was a useless NPC, and if whoever thinks that Baby Luigi should never exist should also think that without this little guy, there would be no Luigi serving as a second player command in any games ever since the first title.

He is so hideous and annoying.

Should trade places with Wendu - WendyIsQueen

37 Dr. Mario Dr. Mario Dr. Mario is the persona Mario takes in the Dr. Mario series. Under this identity, Mario dons a lab coat, a head mirror, and a stethoscope around his neck. He first appeared in his titular game, Dr. Mario.

We could have had Toad or Kamek, but no we get this stupid clone character who should have never existed in Smash. - Drawbox

So help me if he ever appears in Mario Kart...

Doctor Mario throws pills at you to "heal" you.

Another clone - darthvadern

40 Princess Pico

Holy crap, why is Rosalina on this list? Just because she replaced her? She didn't even exist! Seriously, which moron created this fake character and thinks she is better than Rosalina? I searched on Google, and nothing! Just some dog.

Princess pico is not even a character who ever created this character is a dumbass

Too much princesses and Pico has glittery wardrobe clothes. She raises baby bears and babysits Toad. Also Waluigi's wife. Both vicious and the smartest.

Get this crap of a fake character off. NOW - RosalinaX

41 Fawful 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's Minion is going to RAGE when he sees this

Fawful is my favorite mario character. He is a genius and an ego-crazed maniac. Bowser is the same thing, minus the genius part. I guess it all comes down to a difference of opinion

I love Fawful. Why is he on here?

He's good, but seriously Cackletta is better - darthvadern

44 Roy Koopa Roy Koopa 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 sucks as a character and a boss.

Roy is a bland character and a terrible boss. He does the same thing over and over again in all of the games. - DCfnaf

More dull and lifeless than Honey Queen to be honest - Randomator

Need more professors. Only 2. E Gadd and his child, Pico Gadd. There should be a boy for Pico. But E. Gadd looks all ghetto and sick. Pico looks all like a baby face.

professors are awesome. But this character is underused and needs a head redesign - Harri666

Hey! He's an awesome character! Really funny when you think about it, and luigi's best friend! At least he reconizes Luigi, and knows how Mario can be dumb sometimes. He and Luigi need to keep appearing together as the main characters of the luigi's mansion series, keep making the games!

Annoying character and overrated - WendyIsQueen

He's so cool I love koopa troopa so much even though he is a villain he is always smiling and always full with excitement. People should vote for him because I did.

People always usually like Mario, get a grip! That guy stinks! Koopa troopa is by far the best!

KOOPAS ARE NOT bad. In Mario world I think he is the most come on emeie

And after that we battle him and I though he's going to be easy right? But no HE GROWS A GARDEN TO ATTACK what? And that's why I hate him in this game.

49 Captain Toad Captain Toad Captain Toad is a variation of the major character, Toad in the Super Mario Bros. Franchise. He first appeared as a playable character in Captain Toad levels in Super Mario 3D World and later appeared as a playable character alongside Captain Toadette in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.

Hate him, I actually like this guy better than Toad. And the good thing about him is that he got his own game, he appears in the perfect amount of games he should at least be in, and he has exploring gear to make himself overcome all of the other Toads. If you would hate one of them the most, then hate that lazy Yellow Toad from Galaxy, he is overrated and is the one you should be saying all of this Captain Toad nonsense towards.

Do we even need this guy? What if the gem was actually Wingo's? He is so worthless and doesn't deserve to exist! - tiffanyfrozen5110

His backpack prevents him from jumping, literally - darthvadern
