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!

People have considered Toad (the Mushroom Retainers in Super Mario Bros), Daisy, Birdo and Rosalina to be terrible Mario characters.

But you have never learned of the one character that steals spotlights, is a powerless princess and has no reason to be in the games. I am referring to Princess Peach who is probably and arguably the worst Mario character in history.

You notice how a dozen of the Mario games follow the same formula compared to other franchises such as Sonic or Rayman? Yeah, pretty much it revolves around Mario going on an adventure, for what reason you ask? Well to save that damn princess.

How many times does this happen throughout the series? Well over FIFTY TIMES OF COURSE! You have to feel great sympathy for Mario, he has to go through this crap all the time; he doesn't get any rest!

You cannot blame Bowser, he just wants to be a villain but he isn't doing it right! You have to kidnap a strong and worthy character, not some stupid wimp that ...more - KennyRulz244444

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?

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

Pink Gold Peach is a good character it's impossible for her to be a bad character, she actually deserves to be in Smash and have her own game

Pink Gold Peach ruined Mario Kart 8 and stole the spotlight from better characters. - mlcassidy9

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.

What even is Birdo's purpose? Like, what the heck Nintendo? A gender confused dinosaur that shoots eggs out of it's mouth is exactly what we needed in the franchise. (Sarcasm intensifies.) - RosalinaX

Birdo is referred to as "he" in some regional versions of Super Mario Party.

It should be at least 1 or 2. This thing's gender is confusing.

Birdo is a girl, Mario Bros 2 was just a dream. Seriously her haters are basically homophobic and transophobic, they hate guys who dress up as girls. - 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.

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.

A complete disgrace to the Mario series, this character has no purpose whatsoever, he is just there for being there, his design is ugly and nowhere near as original as people say (check out Sabasa from Super Mario Land 2). His motivation is practically non existent unlike Wario, speaking of Wario he got the best personality between the two, Waluigi's personality on the other hand is just Wario's but with few traits altered or removed.

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 .

Baby Mario is reasonable because he appears in the sequel of Super Mario World.

Baby Luigi is reasonable because he appears in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.

Baby Peach is passable to me, but she is appearing on Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time, I can find it excusable.

However, Baby Rosalina is something that I find it quite unreasonable. This is like Baby Daisy: Created for the sake of adjusting the count to the roster. It's unoriginal and inexcusable to my humble perspective in this character. Also, I found her intolerable. We had enough baby characters in the series, I just hope it won't create another one on Mario Kart 9. That ruined the whole backstory from the main counterpart of Rosalina. - yamionthetrap

Please, just stop with the baby characters! - Peppapigsucks

Either this baby is a lie or Rosalina's background story is a farce.

Baby Mario and Luigi? Expected. Baby Peach? Just as expected. Baby... Daisy? Oookay, but kind of pushing it. Baby Rosalina...?! Seriously, what the hell? - NeoPolitan

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 wish Nintendo would have kept Rosalina's original personality, but that's all.
Further into her fanbase, like in this site, her fans aren't exactly perverts, but rather human beings looking out for a character they prefer over others. What's wrong with that? I used to hate her for her fanbase, but the people here have changed that opinion. Hating a character for their fanbase is your choice.

Her character, aka the main topic itself?
Her species is more of a celestial human.
Her talents are being able to command galaxies, star people, piloting her comet observatory, and more.
Her personality is (WAS) calm. Letting out a "Whew! " is out of character. - 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

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

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?!

She started this whole baby trend so there's that - darthvadern

8 Metal Mario Metal Mario

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

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

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

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!

9 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 like her concept, but not the end result. Daisy was built up a Tomboy Princess and given Flower Power plus her small differences from Peach (like in Smash Ultimate for example), plus is Peach's lively cousin and is given higher stats than her because she's meant to have played more sports. Sounds awesome, right?

However, 95% of Daisy's Appearances are from spinoffs, with like 1 canon appearance where she's doing a Princess Peach (oh, you know). Plus, I really don't care about a person's personality in a sports title, in fact I would barely notice it.

Maybe if Nintendo put her back in canon she'd be at least a bit better, maybe even being a character option to save Peach due to her athleticism. Until then, I give Daisy a 2.5 out of 5. - Qryx

Daisy gets too much appreciation, especially on this site. Princess Peach is hated on for years without showing signs of stopping, yet a tiny bit of Daisy hate gets people shouting out to people "DAISY IS UNDERRATED! "? Wow. And people overestimate her slap done in MP3 yet when Peach does the same, people are still whining over her vibe powers being "PMS". Really? Until Daisy appears in the main games she's about as important to the Mario universe as Waluigi. She's absolutely irrelevant, yet she isn't garbage either. Give Daisy another appearance in main Mario titles and give her some depth and she could actually be good. Until then, she's basically an empty soda can that's left on a table. - NeoPolitan

I HATE Daisy. I mean, she is competitive and means well, but she cries over EVERYTHING. When she loses, she overreacts. When she gets chosen, she overreacts. When she WINS she OVERREACTS. I mean, come on! Why her!?!? She gets so upset and is so terribly annoying. I don't know why people hate PEACH or ROSALINA. They are both beautiful and sweet and thoughtful and just amazing characters. They should NOT be on this list. So GO RIGHT AHEAD DAISY FANS I don't give a crap about Daisy.

10 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.

Agreed. Koopalings are $hit. Kamek is okay.

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

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

Wario sucks. Ludwig should replace him as a new staple.

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

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.

What! He is cool and shouldn't be on this list!

Jr grew on me. In fact he's the only one on this who receives ongoing character focus. Very unusual for a Mario character.

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

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

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.

Wait a minute, all of the Koopalings should be 1-7

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)

First of all, the cartoon isn't even canon. Second of all, having a bratty personality is better than having any personality at all. I don't like her either but come on why the hate? - RosalinaX

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.

Not filler, but annoying nevertheless - darthvadern

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.

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!

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.

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

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*

Aces turned her into a busty bimbo.

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

Peach and Rosalina has class. Pauline's just a trashy tramp with boobs.

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.

Why is Mario on the list? What is wrong with you people? Mario's the epitome of a hero. Not only did he protect his best friends Luigi and Peach, but he's also the main character of the Mario series. If you believe in the Mario is Mental Game Theories or think he should be sent to hell, you should be ashamed of yourself. Destroying the Koopalings airships in New Super Mario Bros U was a good thing he did in order to save Peach.

"He ThRoWs BaBy PeNgUiNs OfF cLiFfS! "
Umm.. You do realize that YOU did that. If Mario was doing it, he would give the penguin to his mother and get the star so YOU'RE the villain. Not Mario.

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?

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.

One of the few good clones - darthvadern

Filler. I like all the filler on the list because I hate filler characters - KingSlayer93316

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

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.

24 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.

This trash here is a prime example of how lazy Nintendo has been in the past few years."Let's use the same seven boss characters over and over again." Face the facts. The koopalings have always been garbage characters. They're not interesting or even fun to fight. These stupid seven were shoehorned into everything during the WiiU era and look how poorly the console did. "I'm sick of the koopalings! " There's a reason a lot of people are saying this. The koopalings are garbage tier trash and the sooner they're disposed of the better.

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

25 Dry Bones Dry Bones Dry Bones is a common enemy species in the Super Mario series of video games since „Super Mario Bros. 3“ (1988). 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.

Dry Bones will always be better than Koopa! Take him off this list! NOW!

Randomator, you are the only one who does not realize that Dry Bones is the only GOOD clone in the Mario series when Koopa was super lame. Dry Bones is so cool, it's no wonder he replaced Koopa in Mario Kart DS.

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.

26 Perry the Umbrella

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

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?

27 Morton Koopa Jr. Morton Koopa Jr.

Morton sucks more than pink gold peach and that's saying something

I really like him - darthvadern

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! "

28 Koopa Kid

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

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

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

Better than the seven krapalings.

29 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.

Right how I hate her

Boring clone, lazy excuse for a female character.

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

Better than Toad, but still a clone - darthvadern

30 Lakitu Lakitu

So annoying dude - darthvadern

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!

31 Yoshi 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.

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

You think Yoshi is in the list? NO NO NO! Get Yoshi of this list right this second and all Mario Characters are good. This list should not exist.

Why, why, WHY would people hate YOSHI!?

How dare you add Yoshi! - Matthew3000

32 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.

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

Once again, one of my favorite Mario characters. My argument for you is Peach forces these innocent Toads to protect her. Why, they HAVE to. And as stated in the wiki, he tries as best as he can to help the princess. He even joins the roster in Super Mario Bros. games to help Mario save her. So to all of you saying he does nothing, well think again. - RosalinaX

Worst non-clone character in mario - darthvadern

"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

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.

Scooby Doo in a gorilla outfit sucks.


This isn't a Mario Character. He's a crossover character so stop putting him on Mario lists. - RosalinaX

No hate but I find him overpraised - darthvadern

34 Goomba Goomba Goombas, known in Japan as Kuribo, are a species of sentient mushrooms from Nintendo's Mario franchise.

They're so iconic - darthvadern

Three brown mushrooms that look like some fungi to me.

Goomba's are weak! They do nothing but hit you.

They are horrible traitors

35 Piranha Plant Piranha Plant

An enemy, but I like him - darthvadern

A much better character than Failsy, Rosalin-ugh, and Bleach - WendyIsQueen

36 Baby Luigi Baby Luigi

Best baby in mario - darthvadern

So glad they’re replacing babies with generic enemies

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.

I didn't like his original game, too much like Tetris - MarioBros11

Another clone - darthvadern

Too many god damn Mario clones! - KingSlayer93316

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

39 King K Rool King K Rool King K. Rool is a fictional anthropomorphic crocodile and the main antagonist of Nintendo's Donkey Kong video game franchise, as well as the archenemy of Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.

He's a Donkey Kong character. Sure he appeared in a few mario games, but still - darthvadern

He has the most annoying fanbase ever!

His fans do him no justice by the way they behave.

Isn't K Rool a Donkey Kong character, though?

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

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.

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

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?

They could be pissed off.

They need to move faster

43 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.

Whoever added this hunk of junk to the list was a genius. I hate Roy so much. He creeps me out and his voice is so annoying! Kill this pink monster already! - Target

Worst Koopaling - darthvadern

Roy sucks as a character and a boss.

Annoying character and overrated - WendyIsQueen

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

He's my main in spin-off's! - darthvadern

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!

He Had Sex With Peach

What the heck and finally after that after saving guess what HE GOT MAD BECAUSE I ATE HIS CARROT are yoy kidding me even bowser got mad and says YOU TOLD ME TO EAT THE CARROT YOU IDIOT! 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.

Snot comes out of Wigglers' big, black & bulbous noses.

The best Mario character, someone made a mistake

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.

His backpack prevents him from jumping, literally - darthvadern

His game is a snore fest - WendyIsQueen

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
