Algún problema, señorita?
Title. And before you ask, no. Paper Bowser doesn't count.


I'm not sure if I should put K. Rool and Captain Syrup because they're more Wario and DK bad guys than Mario bad guys.


If I missed someone, tell me.

Fawful would be my answer even if the poll did include Bowser. Dimentio's a very close second.

Koops, King of Cowards.
Kamek.

Though if we talk design, idk MAAAAYBE BoneChill cuts it, but sadly he was really underdevelopped, so eh.

I like Princess Shroob for her pure machine-like alien sociopathy.

King Boo is also pretty cool too.

This is so embarrassing!
Most of these are one time RPG villains that never appear outside of one game, so let's rule all of them of the list.

That leaves Wart and Tatanga who both are also one time villains so we can rule them off.

Fawful hasn't made an appearance outside of the Mario & Luigi franchise, but he's still a possibility (just not a very likely one).

Wario hasn't been an antagonist in enough games so I don't consider him a true villain.

That leaves King K. Rool who isn't on the list and I give up.

Wario

And if that don't count, King Boo.

SHINE GET!
~ Fawful - I HAVE FURY, CHORTLES AND MUSTARD OF DOOOOOOOOM!

~ Antasma - He has a really cool design and boss theme, hope to see him in another Mario and Luigi title in the future.

~ Dimentio - Ah yes, The malevolent and flamboyant jester of the Court of Bleck. He's very cool.

~ Tatanga - Very underutilized villian IMO, kinda think he should've at the very least had a cameo in Partners in Time or the Galaxy games considering how unceremoniously he got demoted to regular boss status in Super Mario Land 2.

~ Wart - Much like Tatanga, I feel that it was a missed opportunity to not have him cameo or even appear as a secret boss in Dream Team. Could've drawn some interesting parallels between the Dream World and the Subcon.

(Edit: Also if we're counting villains from spin-off titles starring other characters in the Marioverse, then I also really like Count Cannoli from W:MoD. Shame we never got to fight him in his Silver Zephyr form...)

Uhh you have multiple favorites? Try to choose a single one.

Saltman: Is happy that Kamek has lotsa votes.

Also Saltman: Puts a Wario smiley right next to that statement.

Well he's the badguy of Wario's Woods and Mario & Wario.

So that's at least 3.

Plus a lot of these badguys are one offs anyhow.

I mean, I know why they're one-offs. Most of them can't sustain more than one appearance. And tbh I'm fine with that. Princess Shroob played her role in the game and she doesn't need to appear again.

King Boo. King K. Rool probably wouldn't count and Petey Piranha is not on this poll either

Koops, King of Cowards.
Yes, but he did debut as a boss, and he's a recurring character, so that makes him eligible.

Bowser's been a good boy at times too, yet, he's here.
