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 name and appearance to contrast Luigi's.



Waluigi was born around the same time as the Mario Bros. He noticed the brothers rising to fame, with Waluigi taking a close eye on Luigi's rise to Superstardom. Fueled by envy, Waluigi spent a long time watching and studying Mario and Luigi from the shadows, building up the strength to compete with them eventually.[1]

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. Here, he challenges the player on his board. Once he is defeated, he claims that he won’t forget this and runs off.

Mario Tennis

After observing them and training, the perfect opportunity presented itself when a Mario Tennis tournament was held. Waluigi entered himself in and claimed to be "Luigi's arch nemesis", teaming up with Wario to steal the brothers' fame.

Waluigi attended the fourth Mario Party inside the Party Cube.

Waluigi took part in the Mario Kart Double Dash Grand Prix, where he once again teamed up with Wario. Their vehicles of choice were the Wario Car and the Waluigi Racer. His signature item is the Bob-omb, and he has a course dedicated to him.

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.

Mario Golf: Advance Tour

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 ally 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 into the ground. Bowser, Wario, and Waluigi all fainted as a result.

Along the way, the eight of them competed for the title of Superstar.

He, Wario, and Anna then entered Bowser Highlands and passed through all of the Snow King's defenses. When the road ahead proved too difficult, Waluigi and Wario then decided to defend the fort so Anna could move on without them, where they were granted lightning-based abilities to help in their efforts. After Anna had defeated the Snow King, Waluigi and Wario struck the king with lightning before he could reform himself.

Physical Appearance

Waluigi is a tall, gaunt, man wearing black/navy blue overalls, a purple long-sleeved shirt, and a purple hat with a yellow upside-down L. He has a large pink nose, a thin handlebar mustache pointing upwards, and blue bags under his eyes.


Waluigi is a cunning and devious man. [2] [3] He is very arrogant and thinks highly of himself, sometimes exaggerating how good he is. And being so delusional, he rarely admits when he has lost, usually just blaming it on cheating.[4] And hypocritically, he also tends to brag about his ability to cheat. [5] One of his main personality traits is jealousy. He feels that he has to be better than everyone else, and he usually resorts to sabotage because of this. Another personality trait of his is his flashiness: he always has a rose on hand to pose with, [6] he loves to dance, [7] and he always gloats whenever he wins. [8]



Waluigi considers himself to be Luigi’s rival. He trained night and day for a long time just to best Luigi. It is unknown why Waluigi has such a burning hatred for Luigi, but we do know that Luigi just doesn’t care.[9]


Wario is Waluigi’s partner in crime and sports. They are often portrayed as comic relief characters, getting into various mishaps when executing their plans.[10][11]

Princess Daisy

The two seemingly have a negative relationship. They both share bad chemistry, and they appear to have been rivals in some events such as Super Mario Strikers and Mario Kart 8.


Bowser and Waluigi have a neutral relationship. They are presumed to be allies, having teamed up in Mario Power Tennis. However, they also seem to have a negative relationship, having gotten into conflict on multiple occasions. [12]


Waluigi is quite strong, having beaten Bowser in a fistfight in Mario Party 3.
