Top Ten Worst Mario Bros. Characters

The Top Ten

1 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 ...read 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 while...it'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 is a character who debuts in Mario Kart 8, where she appears as an unlockable playable character.

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

Literally one of the blandest and lazy character Nintendo ever made, why does she exist and why is she in Mario kart 8... over BIRDO?! I love Birdo!

3 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 ...read more.

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

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

I hate when people ship birdo x yoshi

and forget they are species

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.

4 Waluigi Waluigi is a lanky self-centered, brusque young lad as he is considered evil and the main rival of Luigi. Waluigi is shown causing local havoc in most games he appears in alongside his partner Wario. Waluigi is not instinctively evil or the antagonist (not counting DDR), as a matter of fact, he shows ...read 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.

His only reason to why he exists is because Luigi needed a rival in tennis - Wahbros

5 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 .

I hate this character because literally Baby characters are the stupidest things to ever exist - Wahbros

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

Why does this exist? This makes me hate Rosalina more than I already do and also why is Waluigi ABOVE her what kind of sorcery is this?

I got a question, how could she exist if Rosalina doesn't have a husband? - MarioMaster101

6 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 ...read 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

First of all, Rosalina is not a Peach clone. That's like saying Birdo is a Yoshi clone. Second, her gaining popularity and appearing in more games is a stupid reason to hate a character. It's Nintendo's choice to put a character in a certain game, so stop acting like it's all her fault. Third, she appeared shy and otherwise calm in Super Mario Galaxy, but people can change. Maybe she became more confident the more she hanged out with the other mario characters. Daisy used to be a damsel in distress who would seduce people into giving her what she wanted (Mario Party 3, specifically) but she changed into the tomboy she is today, so why can't Rosalina become more confident? - RosalinaX

7 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!

Takes away classic characters like shy guy, dixie kong, kamek, lakitu, or lemme to add this alternative form of a character that hasn't been referenced anywhere in Mario Kart Wii. Damn, even Honey Queen would be better than this. Stop with the filler character nonsense, Nintendo!

8 Metal Mario

Same thing as pink gold peach, He is just a character so they can add to the character selection - Wahbros

Nearly as bland as pink gold peach, but not as bad, still has no purpose in mario games.

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

Stop your Metal Mario hate. He exist because it was a power up in Super Mario 64. - MarioMaster101

9 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 ...read 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.

When I was playing Mario Party 9, I was leading until I landed on a Bowser Space. Kamek just had to battle for half of my Mini Stars. I lost. He deserved the magic. I want to slaughter him. Curse you, Kamek! He should deserve the top spot instead of Birdo.

10 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

I'd bet a bundle that 99% of the people who are griping about Wario were born after the year 2000. Saying "he's gross and farts" as your argument suggests you missed a good decade or so of Wario's games and probably only know him from his exaggerated Smash Bros persona. If you do a little research, you'd be surprised at how developed and interesting his character is, and has been for about 30 years. Hell, he was the mascot for Nintendo's handhelds for a long time. Wario Land and WarioWare are fantastic series. - HaveARottenDay

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

The Contenders

11 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 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

She only has a hint of a tomboyish personality and nothing else, also quite irritating.

12 Baby Mario

BOWSER JR, PEACH, BOWSER, BIRDO, BABY MARIO?! THIS LIST IS TERRIBLE HOW COULD YOU PEOPLE THINK THEESE GUYS ARE BAD?!

Yeah understandable but his reason to existing was a prequel to The first super Mario bros. The other babies have the stupidest reason to exist. Baby Mario and Luigi are not from Mario kart - Wahbros

Baby Mario and Baby Luigi have a purpose because they were in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. - MarioMaster101

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

13 Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. He is the youngest 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

Bowser jr is epic! This list is a pile of junk. Bowser jr has a clown car that can protect him underwater and shoots shock waves and red bullet bills! Oh and also he has a Mecha Jr. in Mario and rabbids kingdom battle that is a clown car robot that shoots all kinds of weapons! BOWSER JR IS SO COOL NINTENDO!?!?!?! &@&?

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).

14 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 ...read 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.

My number 1 favoirte character is luigi

15 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 ...read more.

Yeah, I hate all seven koopalings. Now, I can vote for all seven at once. Worthless, uncreative filler...

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

16 MC Ballyhoo

FOR THIS PIECE OF ABSOLUTE JUNK!?!?
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.

I like Mc Ballyhoo! Dixie Kong wouldn't have been good as a host. I'd rather Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong be playable characters. - MarioMaster101

Top Ten Worst Mario Party Hosts

Top 1: MC Ballyhoo/Big Top.

Top 2: Toadsworth (Mario Party 7).
WHY THE HELL ISN'T HE ON THE LIST?!

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 don't even know who he is but he sounds horrible. - GreenViolet8236

17 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 ...read 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.

Baby Peach is ok because there is Baby Mario and Baby Luigi. Baby Peach was ok because she could be Baby Mario's sister. - MarioMaster101

18 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 ...read 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.

Bowser did help Mario, Luigi, and Peach in Super Paper Mario, where he built a fort with Hammer Bro. defenses who should be in the worst characters list. Everyone hates them. But, how is he so strong in the Super Mario Galaxy and it's sequel.

19 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 is one of my favorite characters. She is just a normal citizen, not a princess. I admire that. But alas, I think she should be in more games.

20 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 ...read 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.

Well mario is just as overrated as Frozen was. He literally disrespects Luigi just to fain the spotlight! And all the montages of jumping off Yoshi in the middle of a pit jump! Mario is not a star, and he will never be until Luigi or Yoshi takes the spotlight back!

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

21 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 ...read 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

One of the few good clones - darthvadern

Okay, seriously. Dry Bowser should not be on here

22 Cat Peach

She belongs in the top ten worst, at least most of the people in the worst 10 are different characters. Cat Peach was a waste.

Mk8 DLC characters are garbage. We have Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link, Villager, Isabelle, and Dry Bowser. All of them are trash since they're either crossover or clone characters. GET THEM OUT OF HERE and replace them with Bowser Jr, Diddy Kong, Birdo, King Boo, Funky Kong, Wiggler, Honey Queen, or ANYONE that isn't a crossover character or clone! - DCfnaf

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

I hate Peach and all her stupid filler clones.

23 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 ...read 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.

24 Hammer Brothers

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.

I DESPISE these enemies. Combine with Fire Bros., and YOU have a large mess. - Qryzx

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

These enemies are the biggest trolls. Ever. - Garythesnail

25 Morton Koopa Jr.

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

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.

26 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.

27 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

She's Peach's umbrella. - MarioMaster101

What?

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.

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

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

29 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.

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

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

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

Another useless character just female toad nothing else. Not original at all.

30 Lakitu Lakitu, known in Japan as Jugem, is a fictional flying character in the Mario franchise. Created by Shigeru Miyamoto, it first appeared in the Nintendo Entertainment System video game Super Mario Bros., where it dropped enemies called Spinies on the stage.

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!

LAKITU is amazing! He also has super skill in kart racing you are wrong!

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

Three brown mushrooms that look like some fungi to me.

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

They're so iconic - darthvadern

They are horrible traitors

32 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

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

33 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, Super Mario Bros. after being kidnapped by Bowser and his minions. Since then he has ...read 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

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

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!

34 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

Why, why, WHY would people hate YOSHI!?

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

35 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.

STOP THROWING STUFF AT ME! - kumo9

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

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

36 Piranha Plant

An enemy, but I like him - darthvadern

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

37 Baby Luigi

Him and Baby Mario actually were in Yoshi's Island so they're fine. - MarioMaster101

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.

38 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...

Too many god damn Mario clones! - KingSlayer93316

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

39 Petey Piranha

I actually really like him!

He is a captain in Mario strikers charged wii, why not toad be the captain instead of him!?

Petey is awesome. Had to click his name just to say this. #PETEY4SMASHBROS

MARSHMALLOW MAN! - Petey Piranha 2014-2015

40 Fiery Dino Piranha

Cool boss - darthvadern

41 Bouldergeist

He's not bad, not good. Just a Super Mario Galaxy boss.

He could be a much more major character,

He is only put here because somebody can't beat him

He's not bad or good, just a super mario galaxy boss. - MarioMaster101

42 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 has the most annoying fanbase ever!

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

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

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

43 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.

No, I am Princess Pico. I exist

44 Pokies

They could be pissed off.

They need to move faster

Enemies - darthvadern

45 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 has no personality or unique traits.

46 Cheep-Cheep

Just a generic fish - darthvadern

So easy to dodge in SNES Koopa Beach 1 and 2.

47 Professor E. Gadd

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!

He is Captain Rainbow's dad. Google it

48 Koopa Troopa Koopa Troopas, or just simply Koopas, known in Japan as Nokonoko, are a fictional race of turtle or tortoise-like creatures from the Mario series, as well as its sister Yoshi series.

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

Oh come on! He is my favorite Mario enemy

49 Wiggler

He makes me as bowser eat I giant carrot for 1 minute 1 MINUTE! 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

Wiggler is so cute.

50 Baby Wario

Whoever got the idea to make him is a complete idiot. I mean, the picture above explains it all. - MarioBros11

They didn't put him yet they put that baby blue peach. Dumb.

Nah, he's one of the few actually good babies in the franchise - darthvadern

So fat he couldn't come out his mommas tummy
