Worst Playable Characters/Groups in the Mario Series

These are the worst characters ever playable in any Mario games!

The Top Ten

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

It was going to be silver but they added pink to make it more useless - Yoshi

Lazy clone character and the absolute worst. She even returned for Mario Sports Superstar. I'm not gonna rant for too long because you heard the same rant before. - DumbWays2DieFan

She's horrible, but nowhere deserves the number #1 spot if you ask me. As lazy as she is, at least she isn't one of those random human nobodies that no one saw coming - darthvadern

2 Metal Mario

Mother of Pink Gold Peach, Gold Mario, Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, etc. - darthvadern

He's a lazy clone character in many spinoff games. The same thing applies to Gold Mario and Shadow Mario, but Shadow Mario looks like Mario, but is actually Bowser Jr., so it's 2 clone chararcters. - DumbWays2DieFan

3 Baby Princesses

Baby Mario was cool in Mario Tennis 64. Same with Baby Luigi in Mario Kart Double Dash. Baby Peach is original, but now she needs a partner which is Baby Daisy. That's not a thing. Well, the roster of MKWii and Mario Sluggers is already big enough, so I guess it's ok, but BABY ROSALINA? This is getting out of hand. What's next? Baby Pink Gold Peach? - DumbWays2DieFan

The only baby characters that deserved to be in the roster were Baby Mario, Luigi and Peach, even Baby Wario does deserve a spot as he was also original. Baby Daisy and Rosalina are just filler though. I woudn't be suprised if they made Baby Pink Gold Peach and Baby Waluigi in the next game - darthvadern

4 Human Nobodies

The human characters such as Plum, Harry, Charlie, etc. from the early Mario Golf games and Mario Tennis 64. The theory is that they were originally in a normal golf and normal tennis game for the N64, but they threw Mario's face on it to get more money, but kept these humans just incase Grandpa plays with you. We want to play as caterpillars or some fun character in a Mario spinoff game, not these people. - DumbWays2DieFan

No, they have a purpose to the game.

This should be first, in my opinion, while PGP is absolute trash, at least she has some sort of relevance to mario, these human nobodies have nothing to do with mario at all! They aren't even clones on mario characters like, *cough*, PGP, *cough* - darthvadern

What connection do they have to the Mario franchise again? Oh that’s right they don’t - Randomator

5 Super

A group of out of place robots in the Mario Strikers Original. They don't fit. They are the only unlockable character who took up space for someone like, I don't know, Bowser, Bowser wasn't even in the original game. His only reappearance is a cameo mopping the floors in the credits of the sequel, which sums up about how fans feel about him. By the way, when are we gonna get another Mario Strikers game? - DumbWays2DieFan

I completely forgot about them - Randomator

Second worst in my opinion - darthvadern

6 Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach

They waste space in Mario Kart 8. - DumbWays2DieFan

They are jts filler, well at least one of them is nostalgic and another one of them is cute, other than that, filler - darthvadern

They could’ve put someone like I don’t know Birdo Or Kamek - Randomator

7 Koopalings

I like them and they're cool, but they waste space in Mario Kart 8. There should have just been a Koopa Clown Kart on the character select screen and when you click on it, you can pick one of the Koopalings. The weight would change. - DumbWays2DieFan

I love them, especially Iggy, Larry and Ludwig, but IRYO - darthvadern

Either put them in a drop down menu or don’t put them in at all. I don’t want 1/3 of the Roster being koopa characters - Randomator

8 Koopa Kid

One of my biggest problems with the older Mario parties - darthvadern

He is cool, but why is he playable by the time Bowser Jr. already exists? Did Hudson want Bowser to be both playable and the villain? - DumbWays2DieFan

9 Honey Queen

She's pretty great if I do say so myself. She's obscure and rare. The only reason people hate her is because the roster in Mario Kart 7 was quite small ans we had a clone root (Metal Mario), but you gotta appreciate the obscurity in the roster, we got this one, Wiggler, Lakitu and Shy Guy for once appeared! - darthvadern

RIP to all Waluigi fans who bought Mario Kart 7 expecting him but getting an obscure bee instead - Randomator

Nobody cares about a fat old bee. - DumbWays2DieFan

10 Boshi

Who is this guy again? - DumbWays2DieFan

The Contenders

11 Fly Guy

A lot of us like the Shy Guys. In Mario Power Tennis, we get Fly Guy, a clone in a game that already has a small roster (Mario Power Tennis). I wouldn't mind in a game like Mario Sluggers with a large roster, but Mario Power Tennis has a small roster. Maybe he exists so that way if you're playing with your friend who also loves Shy Guy and fights with you about playing as him, you can both play as Shy Guy? - DumbWays2DieFan

*yawn*, boring clone, next (if someone adds another item)? - darthvadern

Clone character. Just why? Why did we need him? - Randomator

12 Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise .

Bitch is such an abomination to Mario games

13 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 was only playable in the Mario Kart games starting Mario Kart 7. He is already the coach of the race, so why is he playable? I know they are different shell colors and there can be many Lakitus at a time, but still. He doesn't even have his cloud with him which is what makes Lakitu, well, Lakitu, so it's basically like if we were playing as a clone of Koopa Troopa. - DumbWays2DieFan

Oh yes, Lakitu, in my opinion he isn't all that bad, the only problem is that he already is the main man behind the races - darthvadern

Not as bad as the other characters but he still feels out of place in the Roster because he already has a role in Mario Kart as the race director and he’s also a referee in other sports games - Randomator

14 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.
15 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.

Who the hell added him? He is the main character! - DumbWays2DieFan

16 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.
17 Toads
18 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.
