That's Mama Luigi to you, Mario!

I felt it necessary to utter that line.

I think it would be Mario because he's Nintendo's mascot and because he's in a lot of good games.

My vote goes out to Luigi.

He can do everything Mario can do and in green! He's also in more shape and just a lot faster in the majority of the games they're involved in (or at least that's what I've come to know) together. Never really was a fan of Mario unless it was a game discussion. If so, the majority of the Mario games out there (or those that include Mario in it) are just so much better. With that said, yeah.. Luigi all the way. Props to Nintendo for making him green and in shape.

He has personallity, unlike Mario and Waluigi.
In all Mario RPGs you can see how Luigi is much more expressive and defined than Mario.
[Not to mention his dark side]

Wario comes close as a better-developed character, but Luigi takes the cake.

agreed and well put ;).

<ANNOYING_RANT>*hates the fact that you must put 24 characters or more... thats ANNOYING O_O. I just wanted to say it was a good line... WHY ME?!</ANNOYING_RANT>

Luigi will always be the best bro to me. Though Wario is also very cool.

January 27th, 2009, 4:43 PM
None of them. They're always out saving the princess, sleeping, playing some dumb sport, walking around on giant board games, fighting giant monkeys, dancing, hunting for treasure, managing some video game company, or going to Coney Island's Disco Palace. I called them 5 years ago and now I'm up to my knees right now in brown water on the 2nd story. I've never seen one piece of evidence that would lead me to believe that any of them are good plumbers at all. Especially Waluigi.

I hope she made lotsa spaghetti!

It's a football! I chiseled it!

I fell for hours...

Good thing I found a magic balloon!

... or is it the bagel?

Ok, in all seriousness, I like Luigi best, especially ever since they gave him like, a personality of his own. He deserves to be his own character, not just Mario's green-clad brother. Mario is cool, too, though, and Wario and Waluigi's voices always make me lol XD

ROFL @ Jiggly's post. I guess as far as being actual plumbers, they do all fail. Miserably XD

January 27th, 2009, 6:07 PM
Hah. Luigi's for the recessive curtain lovers. D:<

They say Luigi can do everything Mario can, but there's always a reason Mario's top dog, and that's because he's got spirit, fire, passion for victory. Luig's good, but Mario is GREAT. He can do anything.

January 27th, 2009, 6:40 PM
Waluigi has plenty personality. He is sneaky and jealous but keeps his head up. He easily gloats even if he doesnt win always. I meant to vote for him but I think I did Mario.

January 27th, 2009, 8:09 PM
I grew up with Mario, and only Mario.
The other three I never even knew of until, like, 4-5 years later, so I don't much about them aside from the obvious.

Well, obviously I'm going to choose Mario, as he was the number one in my eyes when I started playing the games. But Luigi is cool too, a bit of a coward, but cool. Wario is... unusual, greedy, and has anger problems, but he's cool too, and Waluigi... well he got a girlfriend in 5 minutes. (Kudos to those of you who get the refrence.) But in all seriousness, he is sneaky, but I don't really like him too much.

(Offtopic: 400 posts ftw ^_^)

I'm almost inclined to vote for Luigi, simpily for the jokes. I especially love his role in Paper Mario: TTYD; an almost exactly identical adventure to Mario, with his partners all following him around only because he owes them money or something.

January 27th, 2009, 9:27 PM
I do admit that Luigi's Mansion is an awesome game and makes Luigi the star and let us know him more.

I do admit that Luigi's Mansion is an awesome game and makes Luigi the star and let us know him more.

I'll never understand why people didn't like Luigi's Mansion. Yes, the game was short, and yes, it wasn't really a true Mario game, but it was still a unique and fun experience all the same. I still think to this day that, had it not been a GCN launch title, reviews might have been a little better. Plus, it didn't help that it was the first Mario game (even if it didn't star Mario) since Super Mario 64, which is a really hard act to follow. Heck, even Sunshine had trouble matching 64's appeal.

Easy, proven fact, Luigi owns all other plumbers to ever do mushrooms. Plus all should fear the fury of Mr. L!

Darn. Someone already said all of Luigi's lines. >___<

Anyhow, my vote goes for Luigi. He's always been my favorite plumber, ever since the plumber brothers made his first appearance in that really old game before the Nintendo even came out. (Oh man. I just dated myself.) And Luigi is still my favorite plumber to this day. Which probably explains why I always like men who wear green.

January 28th, 2009, 10:52 AM
Wait... I just did a little bit of research. Have Wario and Luigi actually been confirmed to be plumbers? Wario has a little evidence suggesting that he is a plumber as seen in Plumber's Academy (http://www.mariowiki.com/Plumbers_Academy). Waluigi has had no evidence suggesting that he is a plumber as far as I know.

I've never been a fan of the Mario games but I honestly prefer Mario over Luigi. Wario, even though he probably isn't a plumber, beats Mario for me and I don't even care about Waluigi one bit.

January 28th, 2009, 11:11 PM
As individuals there all cool, but when there in games, like Sonic and Mario at the Olympic Games & Mario Kart and such and such. they all suck, and arent that appealing.
i usually go for toad or even Yoshi! there the maddest lol anyways i picked Luigi the Green goblin gangsta lol

January 29th, 2009, 4:23 AM
I have always loved Wario, and I still find his platforming games more amusing than Mario's.
But, thanks to the RPG's, and in an increasing level which started with my old "Player 2" age, I think I have to vote Luigi. He's the shadow of the hero... and I always like his kind of person better than the "It's a-me, Mario!".

So yeah, Luigi.

Like a lot of people here, Luigi is the best to me (did you not see my Brawl Card?).

Everyone's favorite man in green needs a little more recognition (Luigi's Mansion 2 anyone?)! He's more funnier than all the others too. Besides exploring a giant haunted house with a vacuum, everytime Luigi wants to do something, Mario always beats him to it, like going to space. This is why Luigi is always in Mario's shadow, and all that negative energy from being there all the time finally shows itself when you use his Final Smash in Brawl.

Aside from that, Luigi needs more attention. He's been neglected for too long, and needs his own Super Luigi game series. But he's been my favorite Mario character since Super Mario World. Luigi's way better too. He can jump higher and farther, run on water, slow his fall by spinning, blow people to the sky with a well-aimed flaming punch, shoot lightning from his hand, and many other things.

Luigi FTW! :D

It's a football! I chiseled it!
It's a stone, Luigi! You didn't make it!

January 30th, 2009, 7:10 AM
I pick mario because he has been in more games -.-

January 30th, 2009, 7:58 AM
You all are haters! lol. Waluigi is the most unique and interesting.

January 30th, 2009, 7:58 AM
When there's smoke.

THERE'S FIYA! Hah, got the last Luigi line, sweeties. XD

Actually, my vote goes to the construction worker, doctor, soccer player, basket ball player, golfer, tennis player, kart racer, fighter, and carpenter; Mario. =D Sorry sweeties, Mario is number 1 in my book. ^^

I do agree that Luigi needs to be more in the spotlight, he's been in Mario's shadow for way too long. Maybe a game where Luigi saves the Princess...or was it the bagel? XD
But yeah, Luigi gets no justice. Did anybody play Super Princess Peach? When Peach saves Luigi, she refers him to the "Green Guy." That's just cold. Also Luigi and Daisy need to appear together in a full-fledged platformer or RPG. Luigi X Daisy, for teh wins, foo'. XD

Oh de blue on top of my yellowy background! MY EYES!!! Sorry, Jeremy, that text hurt. >.<

Anyway, I think Mario is more awesome. Because...uhm...he has a cooler voice than Luigi, he's more fat than Luigi and his Brawl final smash isn't a load of dance. xD

Anyway, how are Wario and Waluigi even plumbers? O.o On that note, isn't Luigi a rich, vacuum-cleaner-driving casino owner? And only Mario's the plumber? I swear I remember it that way.

January 31st, 2009, 2:50 PM
Magic Baloons FTW!
Yeah, I vote Luigi just because he is green, hes 'Mama Luigi' and Luigi Mansion was a good game. Oh, and hes basically mario except he normally can run faster and maybe jump higher? I'm not sure on that one...(except on Super Paper Mario.)

Nothing can compare to the mighty powers of weegee.

February 6th, 2009, 2:15 PM
That's Mama Luigi to you Mario! xD
I think Luigi is ultimate to everybody else in the Mario series, But Mario made Luigi famous then It wouldn't be the Mario Bros without Luigi.

February 8th, 2009, 9:04 AM
Oh come on, does there have to be a poll for this?
Mario all the way! :D

Wario and Waluigi really aren't plumbers. You ever see them do anything plumbing-wise? Not that I know of. So, they shouldn't really be on here. This really shouldn't be a poll question.

The real meat of the discussion is Mario and Luigi. They are plumbers. Sure, Mario is more famous than his brother, but my vote goes to Luigi. He deserves to be in the spotlight more often.
