He's amazing! Why is he on this list? - keyson

Shut up and stop laughing before I shoot you dog - ikerevievs

Imagine if Amy Rose bashed that dog for laughing at her for losing in Dick Hunt.

2 Custer - Custer's Revenge

I'm sorry but Custer is just offensive, the acts he did does not contribute to a good character in my world.

3 Toad - Mario Bros. Toad - Mario Bros. 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 more.

Although he's weak, he's awesome! He tries his best in ANY activity. TAKE HIM DOWN RIGHT NOW! - recaller

Well, he came to his most annoying in Super Mario Bros by telling Mario that Peach is in another castle. - recaller

"Thank You Mario But The Princess Is In Another Castle"

5 Princess Peach - Mario Bros. Princess Peach - Mario Bros. Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. 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 Bros. 2, Super Mario Run, and even starred in more.

She is cruel, heartless, very bossy, argumentative, with a very short fuse, fussy about her appearances, wouldn't stop appearing, forces people to have her stay in video games, should've died in Super Mario Galaxy & has the affiliation of evil (okay, maybe not evil, but aggressive & bad)! She can stop appearing in Mario Party & Daisy can appear more than Peach! She is like a Sonic X character who bullies her boyfriend big time!

Nice one. She's pretty much the #1 biggest Mary Sue in video games. - TheDannyMan

No. I love Peach! I really don't understand all of her haters. Everybody says she's heartless and bossy, but did anybody else bake a cake for Bowser? He kidnaps her all the time yet at the very end of M&L BIS she presents him with a cake. She's not a Mary Sue either, because even if she's so nice she can be weak and "useless".

6 E.T. - E.T. Atari 2600 E.T. - E.T. Atari 2600

Wait isn't this the worst video game of all time?

It's just a stick running into walls and random villains. What is that, exactly? Epic Gaming.

The game also had a playable character that was et -

7 Mr. Dream - Punch-Out
8 Ninten - Mother

He is the bomb

9 R.O.B - Gyromite
10 Mother Brain - Metroid

This was a difficult boss in metroid...z? But I have the game for game boy and it's actually a pretty fun boss fight.

The Contenders

11 Lester - Lester the Unlikely

He's so bad... You can't even hit enemies. - Pony

12 Boom Boom - Super Mario Bros Boom Boom - Super Mario Bros

Oh cool, another castle, I wonder what's inside? Oh wait, probably the exact same boss as in that other castle!

13 Luigi - Super Mario Bros

What Luigi is the best character ever! Take this off the list! - Danteem

Let me guess why:

1) He's obviously unnecessary

2) He's a Mario recolor/clone/ripoff

3) He's envious of Mario and tries to steal his fame

4) His final smash in Brawl is uninspired

5) His controls in the Galaxy series are sloppy


I also want to mention that in the video parody, "Racist Mario", Mario claims he doesn't HAVE a brother! AMIRITE?!

Worst video game character ever!

14 Mr.Game & Watch - Game & Watch

I think Mr. Game and watch first appeared in super smash bros melee. The Game and watch is a console that came in the 80's and is one of the reasons Nintendo is popular

15 Yoshi - Super Mario Bros V 1 Comment
16 Gannon - Zelda 2
17 Zelda - The Legend of Zelda Zelda - The Legend of Zelda Princess Zelda is a fictional character in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto and introduced in its original entry in 1986.

People think Link's name is Zelda... So confusing. - noo7na7

18 Princess Daisy - Super Mario Land Princess Daisy - Super Mario Land 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.
19 Pauline - Super Mario Bros Pauline - Super Mario Bros

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 .
