When I saw the subject, I thought I was about to have a nice sturdy flow of memorable replies by just typing "Mario". But then read "Besides the Mario brothers" and that just about ruined it.

Nintendo created the Mario franchise characters to appeal to all ages. Super Mario Strikers and Mario Strikers Charged, as far as I know, were the first Mario franchise games to get a T-rating. In these games they sensualized Princess Daisy and Princess Peach, which is a little weird IMO but not surprising. The Super Smash Bros. series has a T-rating.


Nintendo as far as I know has a family-friendly image they want to maintain. Would Nintendo hurt their image if they started making Mario franchise games that were M-rated? Or is this a silly question?

They did that last month, when Sephiroth struck his sword at Mario.

My man, the only character Nintendo really cares about is Toad. He and his clones are in every Mario game. Not to mention his own game and at this point you could call the Paper Mario series, 'Paper Toad' because he's taken over that franchise.

Toad has never been playable in any Smash games. People have made a fuss over Waluigi not being playable.

At least Toad is a weapon for Peach.

I don't see how that's any different than being an assist trophy. He's still not playable. There's other types of non-playable characters in the Smash games that aren't playable.

Bowser is sorta popular I guess. He was even playable in Bowser's Inside Story and had a protagonist role in that game. He's about as old as Mario, so I wonder if they'll ever give him an anniversary thing. Probably not, since he usually is there to serve as the villain, not sure Nintendo would make a game about him as the main protagonist or do much outside of briefly mentioning him in a social media post as a kind of celebration.


Since I mentioned Bowser's Inside Story, just wanna say it breaks my heart that Fawful has never been seen outside the Mario and Luigi series (unless I'm missing something like him being an assist or whatever in Smash). He's always been my favourite character in the franchise

These are NOT Mario franchise characters, let alone NINTENDO characters. Do these characters appear in any Super Smash Bros. games?


If so that doesn't mean NINTENDO owns them.

On top of that, they have loads of other franchises to promotes as well, Kirby, Splatoon, Metroid, Legend of Zelda. With all of the Mario games, and all of these other amazing additions to Nintendo's roster, who really gives a shit about Waluigi?


People only like Waluigi for memes not as an actual character

I think that's a bit silly when there are a bunch of OTHER popular video game characters who are in the games that aren't playable. How come one no one carries on about that?

It ranges from silly to utterly pathetic. Remember when fans harassed Sakurai because he didn't make Waluigi playable in Smash Ultimate? People were really getting that mad because a meme character isn't added. THAT right there is pathetic and sad

I remember reading about that and watching videos about that.


Waluigi needs to break free from filler character status. He was never properly introduced in any ad campaigns, like Wario was, and he has never been playable in any official Mario platformer, aside from Super Mario Maker.


Waluigi needs to be in an official Mario franchise platformer first before being made playable in any Smash games.


But you still didn't answer the question. How come people don't carry on about OTHER POPULAR VIDEO GAME CHARACTERS who are in the Smash games but aren't playable?

People do but no case has been as bad as Waluigi (atleast to my knowledge anyways)
