Waluigi (b. January 15) is Wario's main partner in sports games and Luigi's evil counterpart. He is Luigi’s taller and skinnier rival. His personality had given him popularity enough to wanted in a Wario series game. He has so far mostly appeared in spin-off and party games in the Mario series. He is the same age as Luigi and acts as his dark rival, in the same way that Wario is Mario's darker rival. The name Waluigi is derived from the Japanese adjective for evil- "warui" (悪い) and Luigi, which is pronounced like "ruiji" in Japanese. Waluigi has a short tempered attitude and is a huge sore loser, getting angry even if his opponent makes even a small amount of progress. He also will never cheer or become saddened even if an opponent wins, much like the other characters, instead he will get disgusted about it. Waluigi has a hat and gloves with an inverted L (Γ), which is similar to Wario's "W", an inverted "M". Waluigi was created by Camelot's Fumihide Aoki and is voiced by Charles Martinet. Much like Mario's and Luigi's Element is fire, Waluigi's Element is water. Waluigi believes good things are happening to others and not to him. Charles Martinet said that Waluigi's self core was based off self-pity and envy.

Enemies and Allies Edit

Waluigi has numerous enemies, including Luigi, Bowser and Mario. His antics are violent but stupid. He seems only to have one ally, Wario treats him a little unfairly but needs him to help create plots to ruin the Mario Bros. Despite their rivalry between the four of them, he and Wario occasionally sided with Mario & Luigi to stop Bowser from causing trouble in the Mario Party Series.


Waluigi has great kicking power as described a lot of the time although in Mario Strikers Charged Football he is a defensive character and has weak kicks. He can run pretty fast thanks to his long legs. He is good with a tennis racket and in Super Smash Bros. Brawl he was an Assist Trophy. Once summoned he would beat someone into the ground then blast them away with a tennis racket.
