Cool mario characters DEFAULT

Number One: Toad

Anyone who has been playing Mario games since the very first installment of the game will know the name Toad. The cute resident of the Mushroom Kingdom. Peach’s literal human shield, and just an all-around good guy, Toad has been featured in many a Mario spin-off as well as his own game, Captain Toad’s Treasure Tracker. With games like Mario Kart and Mario Party, Toad has been either a playable character or one of the NPCs that take part in running the games. So why hasn’t he become an official part of the Super Smash Bros. lineup? Maybe it’s finally his time! Or…maybe he’ll keep protecting Peach.

If for no other reason, maybe Nintendo will do it for the memes. Waluigi has been an addition that a number of fans, myself included, would love to see in Super Smash Bros. After all, why shouldn’t he be when Mario, Luigi, and Wario are all battling it out? The lanky, goofy character could lend himself to some interesting move sets, make use of a number of props, and complete the cast of this four overall and initialed-hat wearing guys.

This one is a personal pick of mine. Boo has always been such a cool character who has also gotten some face time in games like Mario Kart and Mario Party. In the mainline Mario titles, Boo is shy and hides his face while you look at him but then creeps up on you as soon as your back is turned, and I could see him having a really weird but fun kit with a few pieces of it centered on that mechanic, much like Banjo-Kazooie’s uhm…butt grenade. And for his final smash, he could call on King Boo to show up and rough people up! One can hope and dream I suppose.

Geno has been highly requested since the Melee days by fans of the Super Mario RPG title he was featured in. To be honest, with the addition of a fan-favorite character like Banjo, which relied on Rare giving the bird and the bear the official okay to join the fight, Geno could maybe finally see an invitation. However, although Geno was in this Mario title, he is officially owned by Square Enix. Nintendo has included Square characters in the past (looking at you Cloud) so it’s a possibility, even if it’s starting to seem like an improbability.

Kamek has worked alongside Bowser and his 8000 children for quite some time now, and always shows up to cause a bit of chaos on behalf of the family. Much like Toad and Boo, Kamek has also been featured on and off throughout the Mario franchise in multiple games. Kamek’s magical abilities to alter and change things could create a really fun set of moves to alter, confuse, or otherwise impact the players you are fighting.

Top 50 Best Mario Characters & Enemies Of All Time, Ranked (From All Games)

No matter where you are in the world, you’ll always find someone who knows Mario.

He’s everywhere from games to films, toys, and apparel.

Ever since the release of Super Mario Bros. in 1985, he’s been Nintendo’s face, starring in most of their games and promotional material. In a way, Mario is Nintendo. And Nintendo is Mario.

But Mario is not alone in his adventures.

And it’s fair to say he owes his immense popularity to the cast of friends, enemies, and rivals that come together to make his games so memorable.

Whether you’re seeking to reminisce a bit, or to educate yourself about Mario’s social circle, you’ve come to the right place.

 

50. Thwomp

Thwomp Mario Character in game

First seen in Super Mario Bros. 3 (1990)

Where most Mario characters are colorful and cutesy, Thwomps seem to lead a hard life – no pun intended.

Their face is always grumpy, and their only purpose in life is to crush people and their dreams.

That said, there have been several variations of these spikey, angry-faced gentlemen.

And some of them seem to have it easier – like the ones that serve as elevators.

 

49. Wingo

Wingo Mario Character game screenshot

First seen in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (2014)

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker was one of the best Marioverse titles on the Wii U.

And its main villain Wingo was part of the reason.

This giant black bird is meant to resemble Roc, a magical bird mentioned in The Thousand and One Nights, as you can probably tell by his jeweled turban.

 

48. Toadsworth

Toadsworth Mario Character artwork

First seen in Super Mario Sunshine (2002)

Originally thought to be Princess Peach’s father, we now know the elderly Toadsworth is part of her diplomatic attaché.

Still, that doesn’t make him any less protective of the princess, who he’s taken care of since her infancy.

He’s kind, helpful, and a fatherly figure for her and the rest of the Mushroom Kingdom’s Toads.

 

47. Wart

Wart Mario Character game screenshot

First seen in Super Mario Bros. 2 (1988)

He’s green, round, and wears a crown – and we don’t know much more about him.

Still, Wart holds a special place in the hearts of fans as one of the first Mario villains they ever fought.

While Wart held the prominent position of main antagonist in the Western version of Super Mario Bros. 2, he’s had a tougher time staying relevant than most characters in newer games.

 

46. Baby Luma

Baby Luma Mario Character screenshot

First seen in Super Mario Galaxy (2007)

Lumas are a race of whimsical living starlets that play a major role in Super Mario Galaxy’s story.

And this specific baby star is their best representative.

It’s probably Rosalina’s best and closest friend, as they’ve been scouring the galaxy in search of Baby Luma’s mom since times immemorial.

With time, Rosalina became friends with the rest of the Lumas, becoming a sort of adopted mother.

But she’ll always remember this adorable cosmic body.

 

45. Blooper

Blooper Mario Character

First seen in Super Mario Bros. (1985)

Bloopers first acquired their flying skill due to a bug in the original SMB, which spawned them outside of water in some underground levels.

It seems Nintendo liked it, so they’re mostly seen floating on air nowadays. They can even play tennis!

These mask-wearing creatures love spitting ink at people’s faces.

Which has made them an important ally for struggling drivers trying to get ahead in Mario Kart, where they’re featured as a power-up.

 

44. Count Bleck

Count Bleck Mario Character

First seen in Super Paper Mario (2007)

Super Paper Mario wasn’t precisely the franchise’s highest point, but its main villain is one of its best parts.

This monocle-wearing individual is obsessed with opening The Void.

To achieve this, he brings forth the Chaos Heart by forcefully marrying Princess Peach to Bowser – and kick-starts the game’s events.

Fun Fact: While he’s almost always referred to as Count Bleck, his real name is Lord Blumiere.

 

43. Cackletta

Cackletta Mario Character game screenshot

First seen in Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga (2003)

Another somewhat overlooked villain from Mario’s RPG exploits is Cackletta, a mighty and evil witch from the Beanbean Kingdom.

To achieve her ambitions of conquering the realm, she steals Princess Peach’s voice and uses Peach-like robots to call forth the Beanstar and use its power – which grants wishes to those with beautiful voices.

In the end, Mario & Luigi manage to stop this selfish, sadistic green witch – but she got pretty far.

She gets an A for effort from me.

 

42. Chain Chomp

Chain Chomp Mario Bros game screenshot

First seen in Super Mario Bros. 3 (1990)

Whenever I hear a dog barking, I’m transported to my childhood of playing Super Mario 64.

I always seemed to fail at getting the Power Star protected by a Chain Chomp in Bob-omb’s Battlefield, and I tried for so long that the sound was perfectly recorded in my long-term memory.

While vicious, this canine ball-and-chain is also kind of adorable – though getting bit by one of these would be a terrifying experience.

 

41. Bullet Bill

Bullet Bill Mario Bros game screenshot

First seen in Super Mario Bros. (1985)

Another creative twist on an inanimate object are Bullet Bills.

These sentient projectiles have only one objective – to reach their target, and some of them can even home in on them.

While they’ve appeared as enemies in almost every single Mario game, they’re also popular as power-ups in the Mario Kart and Mario Party franchises.

 

40. Hammer Bros

Hammer Bros Mario Character artwork

First seen in Super Mario Bros. (1985)

You know someone is good at something when they’re named after their craft.

And nobody is as good at juggling and hurling hammers at their opponents as the Hammer Bros.

There’s nothing stopping a regular Koopa from picking up a hammer and throwing it, but the Hammer Bros. are trained professionals and deadly beyond compare in the Koopa Troop.

 

39. Captain Toad

Captain Toad with Mario in Mario Galaxy 2007 game screenshot

First seen in Super Mario Galaxy (2007)

There’s nothing quite like an adventurous, intrepid explorer to get me excited for a character.

This red-capped Toad with an oversized backpack began his journey to stardom as part of the Toad Brigade in Super Mario Galaxy.

Nintendo noticed his noble actions, and he got to star in his own game – Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.

 

38. Vivian

Vivian Mario Character in Paper Mario game screenshot

First seen in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004)

The Paper Mario franchise occurs in a pretty self-contained universe. Which explains why we don’t see most of its characters make a comeback in other games.

Still, that doesn’t stop us from remembering them fondly.

Vivian is one of the most well-loved characters, both by regular fans and the patrons of certain unsavory places on the Internet.

That’s in part because of her appealing design, but also because of her excellent character development. Nice going Viv!

 

37. Birdo

Birdo Mario Character artwork

First seen in Super Mario Bros. 2 (1988)

Also known as Birdetta, or “Yoshi’s girlfriend” if you ask my nephew, Birdo is one of the biggest success stories in the entire Mushroom Kingdom.

Despite starting as a mere enemy boss in SMB2, Birdo has re-invented herself to become one of the most beloved supporting characters in the Marioverse.

 

36. Professor E. Gadd

Professor E. Gadd Mario Character Luigi's Mansion game

First seen in Luigi’s Mansion (2001)

Professor Elvin Gadd was first introduced as a supporting character in Luigi’s first solo adventure. And he’s since become a popular returning character.

He even got a Mario Party stage named after him!

This small, stereotypical mad scientist with swirly glasses cares more about his inventions and advancing science than he does mundane matters like “saving Mario.”

Fun Fact: Professor E. Gadd’s name is a play on an outdated expression of surprise – egad!

 

35. Bob-omb

Bob-omb Mario Character artwork

First seen in Super Mario Bros. 2 (1988)

Bob-ombs are among the most easily recognizable Mario enemies, and they manage to make their way into almost every single Mario game in one way or another.

While the wind-up key on their back might suggest they’re just robots instead of living beings, they’re capable of complex thought.

Plus, nobody ever winds them up.

 

34. Admiral Bobbery

Admiral Bobbery Paper Mario game screenshot

First seen in Paper Mario (2004)

Not all Bob-ombs are made the same.

They have agency over how they live their lives, and sometimes, that means becoming a sailor.

Admiral Bobbery is one of the last party members to join Paper Mario on the GameCube.

This sea-dog is a bit grumpy, but he’s a good bomb deep inside.

 

33. King Bob-omb

King Bob-omb Mario Bros 2 Character screenshot

First seen in Super Mario 64 (1996)

The King of the Bob-ombs is the first real boss fight in Super Mario 64.

Personally, it was my first boss fight in a Mario game as a whole – and I’m not alone.

Something that made the experience especially charming is that he accepts defeat in a gentlemanly manner after throwing him off the cliff three times.

If that’s not a good role model for our times, I don’t know what is.

 

32. Motos

Motos Character Mario 64 screenshot

Cut from Super Mario 64 (1996)

Motos is a pretty unique character to include. After all, they aren’t featured in any official Mario game.

This round robot-like enemy was found deep within Super Mario 64’s files almost 25 years after it was first released.

Considering he can pick you up and throw you around easily, maybe that’s for the best.

 

31. Koopa-Troopa

Koopa-Troopa Mario Character 3D artwork

First seen in Super Mario Bros. (1985)

Koopa-Troopas are the most common operatives in Bowser’s Koopa Troop. And they’re one of the first enemies you’ll get a chance to stomp onto in the original NES title.

Since then, this happy-go-lucky character has appeared in nigh every Mario game: be it as an enemy, a playable character, or an item.

Green, red, and blue Koopa shells are among the most common power-ups in Mario Kart – and they’re present in most other Marioverse sporting events.

You see a Koopa, you instantly think “Mario”.

 

30. Kamek

Kamek Mario Character artwork

First seen in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island (1995)

Not all Koopas remain at the bottom of the food chain for their whole lives.

Some even have a talent for magic, and Bowser’s regime seems to be a sort of meritocracy.

Kamek is a perfect example of a Magikoopa rising above their station thanks to their great power and intellect.

He’s an old and powerful wizard at Bowser’s service, and the main villain in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island.

 

29. Kammy Koopa

Kammy Koopa Mario Character artwork

First seen in Paper Mario (2000)

Kammy Koopa is Kamek’s older female counterpart from the Paper Mario franchise.

Like Kamek, this ancient and powerful Magikoopa is a high-ranking member of the Koopa Troop, as shown by her regal dark purple robes.

She has taken care of Bowser since he was a child. And despite his disrespectful behavior towards her, she remains devoted to King Koopa to an almost motherly extent.

 

28. Dry Bones

Dry Bones Mario Character artwork

First seen in Super Mario Bros. 3 (1990)

Koopa-Troopas are far from menacing.

At best, they’re minor inconveniences – and sometimes, they’re even beneficial to the heroic Mario.

That said, there’s a sinister Koopa that even Mario knows to avoid – Dry Bones.

This skeletal Koopa can be found patrolling towers and castles in traditional side-scrolling Mario games, and they’re a hassle to deal with thanks to their ability to put themselves back together a while after Mario stomps them flat.

 

27. Goomba

Goomba Mario Character artwork

First seen in Super Mario Bros. (1985)

Almost anybody that recognizes Mario will also recognize Goombas, the living shiitake mushrooms that seem to exist only to be stomped by the Italian plumber.

They’re the first enemy you’ll meet in Level 1-1 of the original Super Mario Bros., which earns them a historical figure status in the Marioverse.

While most of them seem to aimlessly wander around in service of Bowser (or whoever the current villain is), there are all kinds of Goombas.

There’s even a small community living peacefully in the Mushroom Kingdom!

 

26. Goombella

Goombella Mario Character artwork

First seen in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004)

One of the most notorious variations on the typical Goomba is the stylish and smart Goombella, an archaeology student from the University of Goom.

This charming Goomba is Mario’s first ally in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.

After the plumber saves her from Lord Crump, she joins his party and serves as a sort of navigator, providing useful tidbits of information throughout the game.

 

25. Lakitu

Lakitu Mario Character official artwork

First seen in Super Mario Bros. (1985)

Lakitus are a sub-species of Koopa serving as part of Bowser’s airforce.

They drop bombs and other dangerous objects on Mario to make him lose a few lives.

That said, they’ve been known to engage in other activities, whether that means fishing from their cloud or following Mario around to film his adventures.

Fun Fact: Series creator Shigeru Miyamoto has said that, among all Mario characters, he feels most similar to a Lakitu.

 

24. Koopalings

Koopalings Mario Characters artwork

First seen in Super Mario Bros. 3 (1990)

If there’s a dastardly group of people in the Marioverse – it’s the Koopalings.

They just love being mean!

These seven heralds of Bowser’s conquest love to rain on Mario’s parade.

They’ll use warp pipes to surprise the Italian Plumber whenever he lets his guard down, only to be repelled time and time again.

Still, they stay together and keep trying, showing us the value of companionship and perseverance despite their evil intentions.

 

23. Piranha Plant

Piranha Plant Mario Bros game screenshot

First seen in Super Mario Bros. (1985)

I adore Piranha Plants.

Their design is simple, appealing, and after so many years of biting Mario’s bottom, they’ve become an icon of gaming.

I mean, there’s even DIY projects to make your own Piranha plants at home!

While most of them used to be seen growing inside the green pipes that litter the Mushroom Kingdom, they can also thrive in fields and other biomes.

They’re so popular that they even managed to become a part of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s playable character roster, despite that making absolutely no sense.

 

22. Petey Piranha

Petey Piranha Character Mario Sunshine 2002 screenshot

First seen in Super Mario Sunshine (2002)

The Piranha Plant in SSBU isn’t the first of these famous enemies to move around freely.

That would be Petey Piranha, the first boss in Super Mario Sunshine.

This giant, mutant Piranha Plant has a thick set of lips and a bad attitude.

It also has several unique abilities it’ll use to try and end Mario’s heroic stride.

The fight against Petey Piranha in Super Mario Sunshine taught me the meaning of “rage quitting”. It took me years to come back and finish the game!

 

21. Shy Guy

Shy Guy Mario Character - official artwork

First seen in Super Mario Bros. 2 (1988)

Few things are as misleading as the Shy Guy, one of the many bizarre enemies in Super Mario Bros. 2.

These weird creatures may look like serial killers in a slasher flick with those ghastly masks, but they’re just too timid to show their faces in public.

They’re not dangerous, they’re just terrified.

Once you understand that, they start looking adorable – especially when you consider they come in all the rainbow’s colors.

 

20. Toad

Toad Mario Bros 2 screenshot

First seen in Super Mario Bros 2. (1988)

One of the Mushroom Kingdom’s most famous faces has to be Toad, a charming and spontaneous fungus that’s been a staple of the Mario franchise since the release of SMB2.

The Toads are the most familiar face seen around the Mushroom Kingdom, and they’ve served Princess Toadstool since times immemorial.

While indistinguishable from any other member of his species, this is actually a single, specific Toad – just like Captain Toad and Toadette.

 

19. Toadette

Toadette Mario Kart game screenshot

First seen in Mario Kart: Double Dash (2003)

Toadette has been a mainstay in Mario spin-offs ever since her first appearance in Mario Kart: Double Dash.

It’s unsurprising, considering her adorable design.

Who can resist those bright pink colors and her fungus braids?

She’s also cheerful, energetic, and brave – as seen in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, where she’s one of the main characters.

Fun Fact: While some fans believe Toadette to be Toad’s girlfriend, she’s his sister according to official records.

 

18. Bowsette

Bowsette Mario Character game screenshot

First seen in this comic

Just like Motos several spots back, Bowsette isn’t in any official Mario game.

She only exists in the minds and hearts of Mario fans around the world.

This memetastic character was born from the mind of Twitter user @Ayyk92, who posted a comic where Bowser puts on the Super Crown power-up and becomes this bombastic female version of himself.

It may seem weird to include an unofficial character… but her popularity speaks for itself.

 

17. Daisy

Daisy Mario Land game screenshot

First seen in Super Mario Land (1989)

Also known as “Peach with different colors,” Daisy was first introduced in Super Mario Land as the princess of Sarasaland, where the game takes place.

While Sarasaland hasn’t made an appearance for a long, long while, Daisy stuck thanks to her bright personality. She’s probably more fun to be around than Peach.

After a while she became a resident of the Mushroom Kingdom permanently.

And one of the main characters in Mario’s many sporty spin-offs.

 

16. King Boo

King Boo Luigi's Mansion screenshot

First seen in Luigi’s Mansion (2001)

Most enemy species in the Mushroom Kingdom seem to have a monarch of their own.

And King Boo is one of the most powerful and terrifying of the bunch.

This ghostly regent is the main antagonist of Luigi’s Mansion. But he’s made several appearances in other Mario titles, including Mario Party and Super Princess Peach.

His power grows the more supporting boos are around him. Like kings in real-life history, King Boo is nothing without the support of his people.

 

15. Lady Bow

Lady Bow Mario Character artwork

First seen in Paper Mario (2000)

My favorite special Boo in so many years of Mario has to be Lady Bow, a girly ghost that’s as strong-headed as she’s kind-hearted.

We meet her as the potentially evil leader of a gang of Boos in Boo’s Mansion, but she joins Mario on his quest as an influential party member.

Her design is simple – a Boo with ribbons.

Still, her facial expressions and excellent character development make her one of the most charming and memorable characters of the game.

 

14. Boo

Boo Mario Character artwork

First seen in Super Mario Bros. 3 (1990)

No matter their size, gender, or social standing, Boos all have the same basic traits.

They’re round, floaty, and they’ll generally vanish whenever someone looks directly at them.

You might think this is some kind of scare tactic. But they’re just very timid – almost as much as they’re mischievous and, sometimes, sadistic.

Weird for a ghost, right?

You’ll find Boos anywhere there are people. They’re incredibly common in most Mario games.

Not even the Mushroom Kingdom’s royal palace is exempt, as anyone who visited the basement in SM64 can attest to.

 

13. Pauline

Pauline with band in Super Mario Odyssey screenshot

First seen in Donkey Kong (1981)

Pauline was the original damsel-in-distress kidnapped by Donkey Kong in the 1981 arcade classic.

Despite dropping off the face of the earth for several years after being forcefully replaced by Princess Peach, Pauline was able to slowly come back into relevancy with appearances in games like Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem and Super Mario Odyssey.

This classy lady seems to be here to stay.

 

12. Diddy Kong

Diddy Kong in Donkey Kong Country

First seen in Donkey Kong Country (1994)

Despite originally being created by Rare Ltd., the success of games like Donkey Kong Country and Diddy Kong Racing have cemented DK’s nephew as one of the most popular and recognizable monkeys in the Marioverse.

He’s the epitome of youthful energy, always looking for the next adventure and willing to take the lead when needed.

It was probably these valiant tendencies that got him a girlfriend – Dixie Kong.

In a way, you could say Donkey Kong Country is more Diddy’s game than it is DK’s.

After all, Diddy is playable in every game, while DK is only there half the time.

Also if you’ve ever played DKC1, I think you know Diddy cleans up.

 

11. Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong Mario Character game screenshot

First seen in Donkey Kong (1981)

Nowadays we know DK as a friendly, strong-willed gorilla hanging out with the rest of the Mushroom Kingdom’s heroes.

But that wasn’t always the case.

The original DK was as bad as Bowser, kidnapping ladies and generally disturbing the peace.

Luckily he turned over a new leaf to become one of the franchise’s main heroes.

This Kong is always ready to use his colossal strength to protect his friends – and his banana hoard – from any wrongdoers.

 

10. Wario

Wario in Super Mario Land screenshot

First seen in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (1992)

Mario has had many rivals over the years.

But none as interesting as the crass and rude Wario.

This cunning businessman and his dignified zig-zag mustache is not to be trifled with, as he always has a trick up his sleeve – and if that fails, he can resort to his herculean strength to get his way.

Despite his lack of respect for other people and poor hygiene, Wario has proven to be very industrious – managing a microgame-making company, a mining operation, and hunting for treasure in his free time.

 

9. Baby Mario & Luigi

Baby Mario & Baby Luigi Mario World 2 screenshot

First seen in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island (1995)

The younger incarnations of Mario & Luigi seemed like a bit of a gimmick when Nintendo started including them in spin-offs like Mario Kart… but they went on to become critical parts of the cast.

While the brunt of their appearances has been in sports and party games, they have also had some leading roles – such as in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time.

They’re adorable. And they show how Nintendo tries to reach as many age ranges as they can with their colorful games.

 

8. Bowser

Bowser Mario Character artwork

First seen in Super Mario Bros. (1985)

Closing in towards the top of the list now, I’m sure you saw this big guy coming.

Here we have King Koopa himself. A towering beast that looks like the middle point between a dragon and a biped turtle.

Considering his giant size and multiple spikes all over his body, it’s no wonder he could unite the Koopas under his rule.

It’s a shame he only uses these leadership skills to try and kidnap Peach.

Despite his many dastardly deeds and bad intentions, Bowser is always willing to cease hostilities to settle his differences with the Mario bros. in fair sporting matches.

 

7. Bowser Jr.

Bowser Jr. Mario Character screenshot

First seen in Super Mario Sunshine (2002)

Like any smart King, Bowser knew he had to extend the royal bloodline early in his career.

Enter Bowser Jr., the heir to the Koopa throne.

Unlike his father, Bowser Jr. doesn’t have any interest in evil for the sake of evil.

That said, he’s still spoiled, aggressive, and arrogant – so he ends up coming off as a total villain regardless.

In the end, he always helps his father in his attempts to kidnap Princess Peach. Deep inside, he must really want a mom (and some fatherly approval).

 

6. Peach

Peach Mario Character game screenshot

First seen in Super Mario Bros (1985)

Mario may be the protagonist of his games.

But he’d be doing regular plumber work without a princess to save.

Also known as Princess Toadstool, this gentle and regal lady is Mario’s love interest and the fuel behind his heroic actions.

To be fair, even if he didn’t rescue her, we know she has a fierce attitude and could save herself if she wanted – as seen in Super Princess Peach.

Fun Fact: Despite being called a princess, Peach is the Mushroom Kingdom’s ruler, which would make her Queen Peach under most monarchic systems.

 

5. Rosalina

Rosalina Mario Character game screenshot

First seen in Super Mario Galaxy (2007)

Now Peach may be the Mario franchise’s main female protagonist.

But she’s not necessarily the best, or the most popular.

That would be Rosalina, the adoptive mother of the Lumas and a bit of a tragic character.

Despite her outward strength and composed nature, this front hides the pain of a girl who lost her family at a young age.

Throughout the game she comes to understand some things about herself and accepts the world’s harsh realities. Making her the individual with the most character development in Mario history.

 

4. Yoshi

Yoshi Mario Character artwork

First seen in Super Mario World (1990)

This dinosaur-like creature has been fighting alongside Mario ever since the original Super Mario World came out, going on to get his own franchise after the release of Yoshi’s Island.

And it’s only fair he got his own spinoff, considering the number of Yoshis that have fallen into bottomless pits just to help Mario reach higher platforms.

The Yoshi race has made the most sacrifices for the Mushroom Kingdom than anyone else.

They deserve some recognition here!

 

3. Luigi

Luigi Character

First seen in Mario Bros. (1983)

Being brave isn’t about having no fear.

Instead it’s about overcoming this fear to do what needs to be done and achieve great things.

By this standard, Luigi is the bravest character in the entire Marioverse.

Despite his cowardly nature, he’s always willing to tag along on his bro’s crazy adventures. And he’ll put his life on the line to protect him – as seen on Luigi’s Mansion.

Plus, he’s always gets the best memes.

 

2. Waluigi

Waluigi Character

First seen in Mario Tennis (2000)

Speaking of memes, why is Waluigi still not in Super Smash Bros.?

There is a Piranha Plant, in a clay pot, flailing around as a full-fledged character… but there was no room for Waluigi.

It’s no wonder he’s evil when he’s treated like this!

He may be lanky, ill-mannered, and an all-around terrible person – but he still has feelings.

Don’t worry, dude. At least you’re high on my ranking.

 

1. Mario

Mario Character

First seen in Donkey Kong (1981)

But the best character in the entire Marioverse has to be the one that ties it all together.

The one and only face of gaming: Mario.

Sure, he’s overpowered.

And yeah, this pick is a bit obvious.

But it’s fair to say this guy’s red outfit and mustache have permanently changed the entire industry of video games.

He’s good at everything he does. He can spit fire, fly, be a frog, and is virtually invincible… and yet, he remains a fun and compelling character.

Say all you want about Luigi being taller or Rosalina having more depth.

Mario is a worldwide phenomenon.

He’s a symbol of an era, and Nintendo wouldn’t exist as we know it without this Italian plumber.

20 Crazy Fan Redesigns Of Mario Characters

Fan art can truly be an amazing thing. By taking some artistic liberties and approaching a property with a wild and interesting aesthetic, a family-friendly franchise can become dark, and a cute and cuddly character like Mario can become a horrific abomination. Take it a step further, characters and settings can be reimagined as a whole new genre. Cartoon characters can be envisioned within the real world, and sci-fi heroes can be plunged into a world of medieval fantasy.

Nintendo’s properties are some of the best sources of inspiration for fan artists, as they encompass so many characters, concepts and genres to play with. Super Mario Bros. features two brothers who ostensibly work as plumbers, but are usually too busy hopping over Goombas and saving damsels in distress from fierce jurassic turtles to get any plumbing done.

Fans around the world have embraced the Japanese craziness of the Mario world. Although the iconic plumber’s signature look has remained largely unchanged since his first appearance in 1981, other than some improvements in graphics, many artists have come up with some crazy creative ways to reinvent his design, as well as his cast of supporting characters.

Here are 20 Crazy Fan Redesigns of Super Mario Characters

20 Half and Half

When Mario was first introduced in 1981, things were a little different. Originally depicted as a carpenter with red overalls and a blue jumper, it took Nintendo’s designers a little while to get that iconic color scheme right. Eventually changing it up to blue overalls in Super Mario Bros. 2, Mario’s suit variation when affected by the fire flower also got the reverse color scheme treatment in the plumber’s earlier appearances.

This artistic rendition depicts how an eerily, semi-realistic design based on those original pixel sprites could look.

Emerging from the blocky squares of color are a freaky redesign for Mario and a fanged, clawed Goomba that looks much nastier than the low-level minions we know today. With him looking much more like a plumber than today’s springy, cheerful Mario, we don’t really fancy this version, even if he can throw fireballs.

19 Scary Mario And Yoshi

Yoshi was first introduced as a sidekick to Mario, who could carry him on his back, devour enemies and flutter in the air for a longer jump in Super Mario World. His concept can be traced all the way back to the first Super Mario Bros. game.

Creator Shigeru Miyamoto wanted Mario to have a dinosaur friend since his first game, but it took four tries for the now iconic dinosaur partner to be implemented in the games. His debut was so popular, the sequel to World was subtitled Yoshi’s Island, and introduced Yoshis of all colors.

This piece gives the duo a bizarre new look, harking back to Yoshi’s prehistoric origins with the inverted legs of a velociraptor, and the stubby arms of a T-Rex. Mario looks more Quasimodo than a plumber, and his wider build means it’s probably best he avoids riding this spindly version of Yoshi.

18 Smash Club

Fight Club is a seminal piece of turn-of-the-century filmmaking from visionary director David Fincher. It uses raw, powerful performances from Edward Norton and Brad Pitt to lambast a toxic, masculine rebellion against a disillusioned, cynical society that ultimately proves morally bankrupt and excruciating to watch. So, of course, it’s perfect for Mario fan art.

Mario takes the role of Tyler Durden, even if our eyes are drawn to the terrifying Donkey Kong leering in the background.

Of course, the Smash Bros. games don’t have any underlining themes other than the deep desire to watch our favorite video game characters duke it out against crazy backdrops, but it is pretty cool that this artist has imagined a scenario in which totally shredded versions of cute and cuddly video game mascots head to the basement of a dingy bar to battle it out once a week.

17 Mob Boss Bowser

The very idea of Bowser in a suit conjures up sickening memories of the disastrous attempt at a live-action Mario Bros. movie, but as King Koopa pulled off a sharp white wedding tuxedo with boatloads of style in the latest game Super Mario Odyssey, we think the look is pretty safe territory again.

Swapping Dennis Hopper’s awful haircut with Bowser’s signature tuft, this artist opts to accurately translate the ugly visage of Mario’s worst enemy, horns and all, slimming him down enough to fit in a stylish dinner jacket with a striking yellow necktie. This Bowser is probably more likely to bust your door down demanding his protection money than steal your princess girlfriend, but he won't stop himself from doing that should it be required.

16 King Donkey Kong

Before Bowser there was Donkey Kong, Mario’s barrel-throwing nemesis who has since been given a makeover, his own franchise, and turned over a new leaf. Although the damsel in distress Pauline has been replaced by Princess Peach (until her revival in Mario Odyssey), both Mario and Donkey Kong have remained staple characters for Nintendo since their appearance in 1981’s Donkey Kong arcade game. Of course, Mario was originally called Jumpman, but he doesn’t like to mention that.

This piece of art is an affectionate tribute to the characters’ roots, depicting a scaffolding scene high above the clouds.

Miyamoto originally drew inspiration from another famous ape, so here Donkey Kong is depicted as a type of King Kong wannabe.

15 Mario Boom

Is it really possible for an article about Mario not to eventually mention its number one rival? Sonic the Hedgehog debuted in 1991, and was intended to serve as competition for Mario on Sega's consoles, until the PlayStation came around.

An impossibly fast, lightning blue, and icy cool hedgehog, Sonic was on his way to becoming the most recognized video game character around, until attempts to reinvent the franchise with clunky 3D put a halt to the series’ popularity.

In 2014, Sega attempted to reboot the franchise with Sonic Boom, shifting towards RPG styles of gameplay and giving their four key characters an edgy new look. This fan art gloriously mocks this critically panned attempt at a revamp, especially its confusing decision to give the characters bandages everywhere.

14 After the Credits

Here’s a cool piece of fan art that’s a rare but exciting example of a real painting based on geek culture. Though most fan artists will use Photoshop or other computerized brushes for pieces that are just as awesome, Jose Emroca Flores earns a few bonus points for using oil paints and canvas for this painting which can be found hanging in the L.A.-based iam8bit gallery. You can also splurge on your own print, should you feel so inclined. Flores, who goes by Emroca, describes this piece as a moment after the credits of a Mario game.

A small opportunity, after Bowser’s been defeated, to sit on some floating bricks and reflect over the tranquil Mushroom Kingdom.

Mario is sporting his traditional red overalls and muddy green sweater, and Princess Peach has swapped her stuffy dress for something a little more comfortable - needless to say, she can’t be torn away from her royal crown.

13 Pixel Heroes

Micro Heroes are a popular form of Pixel Art that takes a body template for artists to meticulously edit, pixel by pixel, to create cool representations and variations of pop culture characters. Any property you can think of has been recreated with Micro Heroes, so it makes sense that there would be really cool Mario designs out there.

This artist has revamped Mario’s classic design with a chiseled and cool new look, as well as coming up with some power up concepts that we wish were included in the games.

The fire and ice suits are both given a sleek new design, but there are also sweet concepts for an invisibility suit, a Hurt Locker-esque bomb disposal suit, as well as a set of armor modeled after the iconic mushrooms and stars. Our favorite has to be the penguin suit, proving that Micro Heroes look cool with flippers.

12 Super Mushroom Kingdom Squad

Poor Princess Peach has been getting kidnapped by Bowser since 1985, but it wasn’t until 20 years later that the damsel in distress was given her own game. 2005’s Super Princess Peach was the first time Peach was the main playable character for a Nintendo game, but unfortunately it was criticized for simplified gameplay and some weird gender-related implications. Peach is sporting little more than a bra and short shorts giving her a pair of legs Bayonetta would be jealous of.

Even if it's unlikely, this concept art for a fictional Super Princess Peach sequel looks far more exciting.

With an RPG flavor and a Bowser who looks straight out of the sleazy '90s, this would be a far better gaming experience than the hand-holding platformer we were given instead.

11 Updating the OG

As mentioned before, it took Nintendo several runs at the drawing board to get Mario’s signature style down pat. Beginning life with bright red overalls and a blue sweater, color limitations meant that both his sweater and hair were a ghastly green color and his skin a sickly yellow in the Nintendo Entertainment System's original Super Mario Bros.

This piece imagines a world no one wants to live in, where Nintendo simply ran with those awful original colors. It may look good in 8-bit, and although the artist has done their absolute best, not even Mario can pull off that color scheme.

There’s a reason Mario Odyssey opted to keep the blue sweater for its retro costume, as the drab sweater being more beige than green simply doesn’t work against the colorful backdrop of modern Mario games.

10 Realistic Donkey and Diddy

Diddy Kong was introduced in Donkey Kong Country, a 1994 game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System that saw him team up with Donkey Kong to recover their hoard of bananas from King K. Rool and the Kremlings. Diddy is Donkey Kong's nephew who dreams of one day becoming a hero as great as his uncle.

Although cool, here’s an image with the potential to give you vivid nightmares.

Toeing the line between cute cartoon and terrifying uncanny valley, this realistic depiction of the Kongo jungle’s favorite traveling companions combines their iconic designs with real life textures. While Diddy looks like a harmless baby orangutan, Donkey sports a more terrifying look that remains true to his usual, cartoony self.

9 Shy Sorcerer

Shy Guys’ spooky faces and mysterious cloaks make them absolutely perfect for some darker, disturbing Mario fan art. They originally debuted in a non-Mario game, Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic, which was later changed into Super Mario Bros 2. Whilst most of the other sprites were remodeled, the Shy Guys were kept as they were. Don’t let their wide eyes fool you into thinking they’re cute, though, as they’re nefarious troublemakers who frequently work for Bowser.

This rendition of the mysterious forest dwellers imagines them as dark, spectral sorcerers.

The cloak is now an ornate cape, and this Shy Guy specifically looks like he's been crying tears of blood. It’s unlikely that this Shy Guy is going to be working for Bowser any time soon; he’s more likely the stuff of King Koopa’s nightmares.

8 Enemies Redesigned

Goombas and Koopa Troopas have been getting in Mario’s way since the very start, and although their design is practically faultless, we can’t help but think they could do with a bit of retouching to make them just a little more frightening. While the Goombas have been given wings occasionally, and Dry Bones are a bit spooky for younger kids playing in the dark, they’re still a little too cuddly to pose a real threat.

These designs are surely a much better match. Throw a couple of these monsters at the gates of Bowser’s castle and he’ll have no need for Boos, Lakitus, or Hammer Bros. Swapping the Koopa’s pudgy arms and legs for powerful limbs, this overgrown turtle could swipe Mario’s mustache clean off.

It’s the psychotic, razor-toothed Goomba he’ll need to look out for, though.

7 Two Plumbers

Have you noticed that the Mario Bros. never actually get round to doing their job? So-called plumbers, the two heroes may warp down a pipe every now and again, but it’s usually to fight their way through a spiny underground dungeon rather than to clear a blocked sink.

This art imagines how the pair would look if they got off their lazy butts and did their job.

They’re wearing far more fitting overalls of one color, and come prepared brandishing plungers for real pipes, not those man-sized teleportation tubes. Although Luigi looks pretty good in this rendition, Mario is adorned with a highly unfortunate handlebar mustache and looks like he’s never jumped a day in his life, other than to reach a piece of cake on the top shelf.

6 Gulf of Mexico

Here’s an appropriate idea for some Mario fan art; what if Mario and Luigi were hired to clean up the BP oil spill? For those unaware, the spill occurred in the Gulf of Mexico after the BP (British Petroleum) Deepwater Horizon rig exploded. Essentially, this game would serve as the clean-up sequel to the Mark Wahlberg movie from a couple of years ago.

Unfortunately for our protagonist, this is another artist’s rendition that imagines Mario piling on the pounds a little bit, despite the constant running and jumping. Other than that, it looks like a really cool concept for an admittedly dark game that will never happen. The level of detail combined with the cartoonish style is reminiscent of Borderlands, and you can even find a moving version on the artist’s YouTube channel!

5 Epic Bowser

Move over Dennis Hopper, this is surely the closest approximation to how Bowser should look in a live-action Mario Bros. movie. Unfortunately, an epic showdown in Bowser’s Castle with this realistic style is unlikely to ever happen, as Illumination Entertainment have bought the film rights to Nintendo and are likely to retain the games’ cute, cartoonish style.

This piece uses realistic scale textures that really make Bowser look like a cross between a giant turtle and a dinosaur.

Straight out of a Dark Souls title, this Bowser looks like he eats Mushroom Kingdom heroes like peanuts, and we can only imagine what his Koopa Troopas look like. The artist even included a more human looking Mario, no doubt terrified in the foreground.

4 Grand Theft Mario

The first Mario Kart game was released for the SNES in 1992, and it revolutionized the racing genre. Introducing items and wacky courses, it established the racing game as a platform for all ages and abilities, and not just gearheads wanting a simulator for the latest sports cars.

Mario Kart is quite definitely a kid-friendly experience, but it’s easy and fun to imagine how it might look if Mario and friends had to steal their karts and escape Mushroom Kingdom police.

Now you don’t have to! One creative artist has depicted how your favorite Mario characters may look in a Grand Theft Auto game. Though Mario and Peach are rocking their new look – appreciating the ink that is a reference back to his plumbing days – our eyes are on Luigi, with his slick shades and crisp new beard.

3 Dark Luigi

Some Mario games unlock Luigi as a playable character once you’ve defeated Bowser, but let’s be honest, how many of us actually went back and played the whole game over again as Luigi?

Tired of his brother having all the fun, Luigi starred in his own game Luigi’s Mansion for the Game Cube in 2001 - one of the first games released for the innovative system. One of the most successful launch titles ever, it was praised for its spooky visuals and fresh gameplay, which eventually lead to a sequel: Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon for the 3DS.

What if Luigi’s Mansion was a genuine haunted house movie?

Though it was never as scary as a horror film, this piece reimagines the series by way of The Conjuring. Those terrifying, eyeless Boos are certainly enough to scare any plumber witless.

2 Damsel in Distress

Results vary, but it’s estimated that Princess Peach has been kidnapped by Bowser almost 20 times throughout the Super Mario franchise. Most recently, she was almost forced to marry her captor in Super Mario Odyssey. Toadsworth has remarked that, on average, she’s probably kidnapped at least once a week. That doesn’t stop her from being an excellent ruler, and by now, rescuing her is far too much fun to stop.

This piece imagines a more realistic scenario of Peach being carried away by a huge, ugly monster. Peach is genuinely terrified, and Bowser with a bulging stomach, drooling profusely, looks far more monstrous than his cartoonish video game counter-part that sometimes borders on friendly.

It looks like Peach may not come out of this one alive.

1 Tyrannosaurus Yoshi

For a character supposedly modeled after a dinosaur, Yoshi isn’t particularly large or frightening, though we love him all the more for it. In the sacrilegious film adaptation, he was depicted as a tiny velociraptor, straight out of Jurassic Park, ultimately failing to capture the charm of the original character.

This artwork reimagines Yoshi how we’ve always wanted to see him. Scaled up to T-Rex size, there’s no way anything Bowser throws at Mario is going to make a dent this time. A larger Yoshi also means Mario can power up at the same time, and you can see him making quick work of a couple of scaly Goombas.

What might stand in their way is the teeth of that hideous piranha plant, but our money’s still on Yoshi’s incredible upgrade.

Characters in the Mario franchise

Wikimedia list article

For the main characters that appear in Mario-adjacent franchises Donkey Kong and Wario, see list of Donkey Kong characters and Wario (series) § WarioWare characters.

The main characters of the Mariofranchise: Wario, Donkey Kong, Luigi, Peach, Mario, Toad, Daisy, Bowser, Yoshi, Boo, and Waluigi.

The Mario franchise is a collection of video game series by Nintendo; while Nintendo is usually their developer and publishers, various series are usually developed by other third-party companies, such as Hudson Soft and Intelligent Systems. The games usually revolve around Mario, and usually involve the motif of Bowser kidnapping Princess Peach and Mario rescuing her, but the various characters have different plots and goals that vary from series; for example, the Luigi's Mansion series focuses on Luigi ridding his new mansion of ghosts, while Wariostars in games that center around his greed and desire for money and treasure.

Character roots begin with Donkey Kong where Mario, Donkey Kong, and Pauline originate. They were designed by Japanese video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto; they were built off the base of characters from Popeye, but unable to obtain liscencing rights for the characters, made later changes to their appearances and personalities, such as making them more lighthearted in tone. Due to the critical and commercial success of Donkey Kong when it was released in July 1981, Mario would reappear in Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. in 1983 and 1985, respectively. Mario Bros. introduced Mario's fraternal twin Luigi, and Super Mario Bros. introduced Toad alongside numerous enemies, with Bowser and Princess Peach replacing both Donkey and Pauline.

Throughout each series of games, numerous characters have been introduced and have since become recurring. Some games, such as the Super Mario series, have supporting protagonists that aid the main character, such as Cappy from Super Mario Odyssey and Professor E. Gadd from the Luigi's Mansion series. Other main and supporting antagonists appear as an additional hindrance with minor roles, such as the Koopalings. The games all typically share common enemies that function only as enemies.

Protagonists[edit]

Mario[edit]

Main article: Mario

Mario[a] (, Italian: [ˈmarjo]) is the main protagonist of many games across the Mario franchise, mainly the Super Mario series, and is the face of others, such the Mario Kart and Mario Party series. Beyond this, other branches of games Mario stars in expand beyond the platforming genre, such as role-playing games with Paper Mario,[1]puzzle games with Dr. Mario,[2][3] and educational games with Mario Teaches Typing.[4] Depicted as a brave and heroic Italian plumber, he is often tasked with rescuing the kidnapped Princess Peach of the Mushroom Kingdom from King Bowser and his army of henchmen. In the 2D line of Super Mario games, he does this alongside other characters, usually with his brother Luigi and colored variants of Toads, and in the subsequent 3D games, a singular new character that expands on Mario's primary abilities. Mario is usually supported with a selection of Power-ups in the games he appears in, which vary from game to game. These power-ups give Mario additional options for basic attacks or puzzle-solving functions, such as the "Super Mushroom", which gives him an additional hitpoint,[5] or the Fire Flower, which allows him to attack with fireballs[disambiguation needed] when used.[6]

History and evolution[edit]

Mario was designed by Japanese video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto in his debut game designer role. With intentions to garner a license to the Popeye comic strips for the 1981 video game Donkey Kong, Mario was intended to be Popeye; the rights never came to be,[7] and he was transformed to "a funny, hang-loose kind of guy."[8] Mario was given red overalls and a hat to differentiate him from the black background of Donkey Kong as well as to avoid drawing hair,[9] and sported a large mustache and nose to avoid humanoid features that were graphically impossible at the time.[10] He went unnamed in this first role, and Miyamoto later considered naming him "Mr. Video", due to Miyamoto's intentions of using him as a "go-to" character for games needing a main character or for use of cameo appearances.[11] In American localization, he was at first named "Jumpman" in the game's instructions.[12] However, then-CEO of Nintendo of AmericaMinoru Arakawa was visited by angered landlord Mario Segale, who demanded back rent for a warehouse Nintendo rented from him. The American developers alongside Arawaka who were present at this confrontation named the character after him, resulting in the name switch.[13][14][15] Nintendo confirmed the story to be true in 2015.[16]

After Donkey Kong proved to be a critical and commercial success, Mario starred in Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. in 1983 and 1985 respectively,[17] supported by Luigi as an optional second player. The Super Mario series of 2D platforming games saw graphical advances in Mario's appearance but retained his overalls and facial features. By the time Super Mario World released after multiple Super Mario installments in 1990, Sega and Nintendo were amidst a console war when Sega began pushing the Sega Genesis in North American markets, which Nintendo dominated at the time. This rivalry resulted in the creation of Sonic the Hedgehog,[18] and temporarily became more popular than Mario due to his appeal to slightly older audiences.[19][20][21] The competition died down with the introduction of Sony, and Nintendo and Sega would collaborate with their characters in the Mario & Sonic at the Olympics and Super Smash Bros. series, where both characters are playable and compete against each other.[22][23] Mario would eventually star in a new line of 3D Super Mario games with the introduction of Super Mario 64 in 1996, and were followed by Sunshine, Galaxy, and Galaxy 2 in the following years up until 2010. 3D Super Mario games would be emphasized less and Mario would continue on in the newly revamped 2.5DSuper Mario games,[24] until their return with Super Mario Odyssey in 2017.

Mario began to be voiced by Charles Martinet in 1992. Martinet was the last person to audition for the role and the directors were already packing up for the night. They gave him the prompt "an Italian plumber from Brooklyn", and he began to conceptualize a stereotypical Brooklyn accent with Italian mobster-like qualities. He abandoned this idea and quickly switched to a soft and lighthearted voice right before the tape began recording,[25] and rambled about Italian cuisine until the tape ran out.[26] His audition tape was the only one sent back to Nintendo.[25] His first role was a Super Mario Bros.-themed pinball game in 1992, but was neither paid nor credited.[27] His first official role was Mario's Game Gallery in 1995.[28]

Reception[edit]

Mario has since become one of the most popular and influential video game characters of all time and serves as Nintendo's mascot,[29][30][31] and was ranked among the best video game characters among critics.[32][33][34][35] As a pop-culture icon, he has been used in various types of merchandise, such as commercials, plush toys, candy, and board games.[36][29] Many people and places have been named or nicknamed after the character, such as Mario Lemieux's nickname "Super Mario".[37] In other media, Japanese prime minister Shinzō Abe dressed up as the character in the 2016 Summer Olympics closing ceremony,[38][39][40] and a Saturday Night Live skit centered around a court trial of Wario murdering Mario in a kart race.[41][42] In the Guinness Book of World Records, he was given the record for "Most Prolific Video Game Character".[43] In the Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition, readers ranked him the best video game character of all time.[44] Two films based on the Super Mario series have been released, the first was Super Mario Bros.: Peach-Hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen! in 1985, starring Toru Furuya,[45] and Super Mario Bros. in 1993, portrayed by Bob Hoskins.[46] Mario was also voiced by Lou Albano in The Super Mario Bros.

His magic includes self-duplication, teleportation, shooting magical blasts, and changing the size of other creatures. In Japan, his species is also named Kamek, and outside Japan is Magikoopa. This will sometimes lead to a literal translation, as in Super Princess Peach where a boss is described as "A Kamek made huge by magic". Some Japanese sources such as the guide for Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island call him "Fang" to distinguish him from regular Magikoopas.

He will appear in the upcoming Mario movie, voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson.

King Boo[edit]

King Boo[u] (voiced by Toru Asakawa) is the king of the Boos and the main antagonist in the Luigi's Mansion series. He plays minor roles, occasionally playable, in various other Mario games, including the Mario Kart and Mario Party series. King Boo's first major debuted role was as the final boss of Luigi's Mansion, where he disguised himself as Bowser.

He is much larger than the average Boos that appear in games after Luigi's Mansion. He dons a crown with a large ruby and has glowing, sunken eyes in the Luigi's Mansion franchise, and is a playable character in Mario Kart Tour. A similar character named Big Boo is an enemy in Super Mario World and a boss in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Super Mario 64 DS.

Wart[edit]

Wart[v] (voiced by Charles Martinet) is an anthropomorphic frog king. He debuted in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic (1987), which was converted into Super Mario Bros. 2 (1988) for its North American release, in which he is the final boss who creates his own monsters with the Dream Machine, and appoints himself ruler of the enslaved land of Subcon.[61] He is a boss in BS Super Mario USA Power Challenge (1996), stars in a Satellaview episode "Wart's Trap, Look Out Mario Brothers" (「マムーの罠,危うしマリオブラザーズ」, "Mamu no Wana, Abunaushi Mario Burazazu"), and appears in Nintendo Comics System publications. He made a cameo appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (1993) with his original Japanese name, Mamū.[62] He has had mixed critical reception.[63][64][65][66]

Supporting protagonists[edit]

Baby Luma/Lumas[edit]

Baby Luma[w] (voiced by Yuya Takezawa) is Mario's main companion in Super Mario Galaxy and its sequel Super Mario Galaxy 2. He is among a group of star-shaped beings known as Lumas, who appear in both games.

Cappy[edit]

Cappy is a Bonneter who meets Mario in the Cap Kingdom, when he pleas for Mario to assist him in rescuing his little sister Tiara. Cappy has the ability to "capture" enemies and other creatures, allowing Mario to take control of them for periods of time.

Cappy appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as Mario's side taunt and a Spirit. He quickly throws Cappy and returns him to his head similar to in Super Mario Odyssey.

Poochy[edit]

Poochy[y] is Yoshi's helper dog. He debuted in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and continued through the Yoshi series such as in Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World. He can do things that Yoshi cannot, such as sniffing hidden items, crossing over dangerous terrain, and jumping over walls to give Yoshi a boost out of his wall jumps.

Professor E. Gadd[edit]

Professor Elvin Gadd (Professor Oya Mā[z] in Japan; voiced by Kazumi Totaka), more commonly known as E. Gadd, is a scientist who uses inventions to help Luigi save his brother Mario and the mansion. His name is a pun on the Japanese interjection Oyamā![aa], meaning "Good heavens!" His name is also inspired by Nintendogame designer Yoshiyuki Oyama.[68] The English translations accordingly adapted the name to a pun on the expression "egad!" He debuted in Luigi's Mansion for GameCube, in which he investigates a haunted mansion that mysteriously appeared by his laboratory. To help him study the ghosts in the mansion, he uses the "Poltergust 3000", a high-powered vacuum cleaner that can suck in and capture ghosts, and the "Game Boy Horror", an invention for tracking and detecting objects such as Boos. His inventions are key items in other games like Super Mario Sunshine.

Nabbit[edit]

Nabbit[ab] (voiced by Natsuko Yokoyama) is a purple rabbit-like thief with round eyes, long ears, and black limbs who debuts in New Super Mario Bros. U, where he steals items from Toad Houses. In New Super Luigi U, he's playable.

Toadsworth[ac](voiced by Charles Martinet) is an elderly Toad who acts as Princess Peach's steward. He is seen showing concern for the princess' safety and acts as a prime caretaker for the Toads. He debuted in Super Mario Sunshine for GameCube, in which he goes on vacation with Mario, Peach and the other Toads. In Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, he is revealed to have cared for the princess since she was a baby.

Supporting antagonists[edit]

Cackletta[ad] is the main antagonist in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its 3DS remake Bowser’s Minions. She is an evil sorceress who takes the Beanstar and Peach's voice in the Beanbean Kingdom. After sustaining heavy injuries, she controls Bowser's body (known as Bowletta) and dies after the explosion of Bowser's castle.

Fawful[edit]

Main article: Fawful

Fawful[ae] (voiced by Nami Funashima) is a recurring antagonist in the Mario & Luigi series. The character is considered to be "insane," and served as the secondary antagonist of Superstar Saga and the main antagonist of Bowser's Inside Story.

Petey Piranha[edit]

Petey Piranha, known as Boss Pakkun[af] in Japan,[69] (voiced by Toru Minegishi) is a large, powerful Piranha Plant, and the result of a mutation. Whereas normal Piranha Plants usually grow from pipes, Petey's leaves and roots have grown into foot-like and arm-like appendages, which allows him to use objects such as tennis rackets and golf clubs. He can also use his leaves to fly around in the air. He first appeared as the primary boss of Bianco Hills in the game Super Mario Sunshine. He has since appeared as a boss or a playable character in several Mario games and spin-off games.

Kammy Koopa[edit]

Kammy Koopa[ag] is an elderly Magikoopa who acts as an advisor and babysitter for Bowser in the first two Paper Mario games. She possesses the usual Magikoopa powers, and is primarily distinguished by her ability to summon yellow blocks, which she has used to both impede and combat Mario. She first appeared in Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64, helping Bowser by leaving enemies in Mario's way, transporting Bowser into the Star Spirit Sanctuary, and augmenting his size and power in the final battle. After being defeated by the Star Kid, Twink, she continued to work for him. In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, she acted as Bowser's second-in-command. Generally, her position is very similar with Kamek who appeared earlier than her, which possibly means why she is replaced by him in Paper Mario: Sticker Star.
