Waluigi is Wario's partner and an enemy of Mario and Luigi. His name is a combination of warui, a Japanese word meaning "bad", and Luigi's name, hence, a bad Luigi. First seen in Mario Tennis, Waluigi began harassing Luigi in Mario Party 4.

Game appearances

Super Smash Bros. series

Super Smash Bros. Brawl


Waluigi assisting Sonic in Green Hill Zone

Waluigi appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as an Assist Trophy. Once summoned, Waluigi will beat the opponent into the ground with his strong leg and then send them flying with a tennis racket. There is also a soundtrack of his theme song, "Waluigi Pinball".

Trophy Description

"A twig-thin man who sees himself as Luigi's Ultimate rival. He spent a long time working in the shadow of Mario Bros. before finally becoming strong enough to compete with them in Mario Tennis. Since then he's had many brilliant game appearances. While the nature of his relationship with Wario is a mystery, the pair have hatched some devious schemes together."

As a Sticker

Waluigi also appears as two stickers. One uses his artwork from Mario Superstar Baseball, and the other one uses his artwork from Super Mario Strikers.

Alternate costume

Luigi has an alternate costume similar to Waluigi's. This is the closest thing to Waluigi being a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, Waluigi reprises his role as an Assist Trophy and Trophy from Brawl, and functions nearly the same as he did in that game. Luigi still has an alternate costume based on Waluigi's outfit, and Mario also has one based on Waluigi's outfit.

Memorable Quotes


  • Waluigi has a pink nose similar to Eggman's and Wario's.
  • Thanks to his long legs, Waluigi can run very fast. However, in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, he was a Skill type character, not speed.
  • The symbol on Waluigi's gloves and hat is very similar to the capital of the Greek letter, Gamma "Γ".
  • Waluigi's colors are Luigi's colors inverted.
  • According to Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Waluigi and Wario are not related, but actually just friends.
  • Waluigi was created by Camelot Software Planning, a former division of Sega then known as Sonic! Software Planning.
  • Waluigi shares a similarity to Shadow, as both characters are represented by dark-shaded colors (Waluigi is represented by the color purple and Shadow is represented by the color black). They both also share a rivalry with the hero's sidekick as Luigi has a rivalry with Waluigi in Mario Tennis and onwards while Tails has a rivalry with Shadow, which is hinted in Sonic Free Riders where Shadow talks to Tails after E-10000B breaks down and tells him in a stern voice, "His robot WAS spewing out a lot of smoke...".
