Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island

The Stork carrying Mario and Luigi was attacked by Kamek, and both Luigi and the Stork were kidnapped while Mario fell down onto Yoshi's Island.[3] Once the Yoshis saved them from Bowser, the Stork once again set off to bring the brothers to their parents.[4]

Yoshi’s New Island

The stork accidentally delivered Mario and Luigi to the wrong house[5], and while he was taking them to the right house, he was once again attacked by Kamek.[6] Luigi was captured and taken to Bowser's hideaway on Egg Island. After the Yoshis defeated a time-travelling adult version of Bowser, Mario and Luigi were reunited once again and taken to the correct parents.[7]

Yoshi’s Island DS

Kamek and a number of Toadies kidnapped several babies, including Luigi.[8] The Stork managed to save Mario and Peach, but Luigi was still captured. After defeating both the older and younger versions of Bowser, the Yoshis saved all of the kidnapped babies, including Luigi.[9] Both he and Mario were delivered back to their home.

Super Mario Bros.

In Super Mario Bros., Mario & Luigi, hearing of the curse Bowser had placed on the Mushroom Kingdom, set out to save Princess Peach, who was being held in Bowser’s Castle.[10] The brothers made their way through seven worlds, with Mario facing off against a Fake Bowser in each and saving the seven Mushroom Retainers. During 4-3, the two brothers took a snack break on one of the mushroom platforms before continuing. Mario ate a green pepper pizza and drank a shake.[11] Mario also performed some juggling, which a Goomba saw aswell.[12]

Finally, they found themselves in the Koopa Kingdom. Mario defeated Bowser and rescued Princess Peach, becoming smitten with the Princess as she kissed him out of gratitude for saving her.[13][14][15]

Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels

In Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Bowser attempted the same plan once again, with the Mushroom Kingdom being even tighter control by his forces this time around.[16] Princess Peach was taken to a “parallel world” and Mario & Luigi had to travel through eight worlds once again to rescue her.[17][18][19] Once the Princess had been saved, she was kidnapped once again, prompting Mario & Luigi to travel through World 9, World A, World B, World C and World D, before defeating Bowser (Blue) and Bowser once again. Having finally restored peace to the Mushroom Kingdom, Luigi was praised as a hero.

Famicom Grand Prix II: 3D Hot Rally

In Famicom Grand Prix II: 3D Hot Rally, geared up in a pair of mechanic uniforms, Mario & Luigi took place in a number of rallying events, Luigi taking the role of navigator. After finishing their rallying, the Bros. popped a champagne to celebrate, Luigi spooked by the loud sound.[20]

Donkey Kong (Gameboy)

In Donkey Kong (Gameboy), Luigi was part of the audience looking at Mario’s acrobatic performance in New Donk City, with someone leaning on him.[21]

Super Mario Bros. 3

In Super Mario Bros. 3, the Mushroom Kingdom has been a peaceful place thanks to the brave deeds of Mario and Luigi.[22] However, trouble struck in the Mushroom World, where Bowser had sent all seven of the Koopalings to invade and turn its kings into different creatures. After hearing of this news, Mario and Luigi set off to save the Mushroom World's kings.

However, this was all a ploy to keep the Mario Bros. busy as, while they were off, Bowser arrived to kidnap Peach. Entering Dark Land, Mario & Luigi entered Bowser's Castle and saved the Princess after a ground-stomping fight with Bowser.[23]

Super Mario World

In Super Mario World, after saving the Mushroom Kingdom from Bowser and the rest of the Koopalings in Super Mario Bros. 3, Mario and Luigi needed to recuperate from their adventures. Together they agreed that the best place to vacation was a magical place called Dinosaur Land.[24]

But while Mario and Luigi flew around the island with their cape and Cape Feather, Princess Peach disappeared, apparently seized by evil forces. After searching for hours for their missing friend, Mario and Luigi came upon an enormous egg in the forest. Suddenly the egg hatched, and out popped a young dinosaur named Yoshi, who proceeded to tell Mario and Luigi a sad tale of how his dinosaur pals were sealed in similar eggs by a group of monstrous turtles.

After coming to the realization that Bowser and his bunch have returned, Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi set off across Dinosaur Land to find the Princess and to free Yoshi's friends. This all came to a head in the Valley of Bowser where, after a climactic fight against Bowser in his Clown Car, Princess Peach had been saved along with all of Yoshi's friends.

After having journeyed through all of Dinosaur Land, Fall arrived and the two brothers spread a bunch of Mario masks across the land.[25]


Luigi gets scared very easily.[26][20]
