|Place of Origin||Unknown|
Waluigi is the self-proclaimed rival of Luigi. Envious of Mario & Luigi’s fame, Waluigi schemes to become more popular than the brothers. Contrary to popular belief, Waluigi is not Wario's brother, but rather a persona made up to gain relevance in the Mushroom Kingdom. As such, he likely intentionally designed his own name and appearance to contrast Luigi's.
Although his birth circumstances are not known, Waluigi is not a star child, as evidenced by his absence from Bowser's plan in Yoshi's Island DS. This supports the statement that he is, indeed, not Wario's brother.
Fueled by envy, Waluigi spent a long time watching and studying Mario and Luigi from the shadows. During this time he would use his gardening skills to breed and release Piranha Plants in sewers in an attempt to sabotage the Mario Bros. (Link to theory)
Mario Party 3
Waluigi first made himself known to Mario and Luigi during the third Mario Party. Having stolen the Mischief Star Stamp, he introduced himself before defeating Bowser in a fight.
After observing them and training, the perfect opportunity presented itself when a Mario Tennis tournament was held. Waluigi entered himself, and claimed to be "Luigi's arch nemesis", teaming up with Wario to steal the brothers' fame.

Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour
Waluigi made his debut as a golfer in Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour. After seeing Luigi almost get a hole in one, Wario and Waluigi decided to brush up on their golf skills by challenging various other golfers. They started by challenging Yoshi and Koopa Troopa to a round of golf. Waluigi approached the green, but his ball continuously missed the hole. After failing to sink his ball for the fourth time, Wario notified Waluigi that Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong have joined the golfing competition as well, and decided to challenge them next. During this round, Wario hit his ball really far, but he suddenly heard a loud roaring sound shortly after. It is then revealed that Wario's golf ball had given Bowser a black eye, and he began to chase after the duo with his Koopa Clown Car. They managed to lose Bowser by jumping through a Warp Pipe, but little did they know, Bowser's Castle was on the other side. Bowser caught up to them once again, and attempted to throw a Bob-omb at the duo. Just as Bowser was about to throw the Bob-omb, Mario's ball bounced off of Wario and Waluigi, giving them black eyes too, and knocked the Bob-omb off Bowser's hand. The Bob-omb exploded on Wario, Waluigi, and Bowser.

Waluigi showed off his golfing skills once again in Mario Golf: Advance Tour.
Mario Power Tennis
Waluigi participated in the Mario Power Tennis tournament, where Wario was once again his doubles partner. They lost to Mario and Luigi in the first round of the tournament. Furious, they decided to vandalize Mario and Luigi's picture on the tournament bracket, which caught the attention of the police. Wario and Waluigi ran from the police for a while until they found a side room in Peach Dome, which is revealed to be Bowser's workout room. Bowser offered to form an alliance with Wario and Waluigi, to which they happily agreed.
Throughout the rest of the tournament, Wario and Waluigi trained in Bowser's workout room. During the final round, the two of them interrupted what was supposed to be a match between Mario & Luigi and Yoshi & Donkey Kong. They pulled out a Bob-omb launcher and attempted to shoot Bob-ombs at the Mario Bros, with Bowser also throwing Bob-ombs from a hot air balloon. After missing several times, Bowser fired a Bullet Bill at Mario. Mario deflected the Bullet Bill with his tennis racket, sending it towards Wario and Waluigi's Bob-omb launcher. The Bob-omb launcher malfunctioned and launched a Bob-omb at Bowser's hot air balloon. Because the balloon's base was filled with Bob-ombs, it caused a huge explosion when it crashed to the ground. Bowser, Wario, and Waluigi all fainted as a result.
