* In addition to being one in-universe, Luigi ''used'' to be one, and the best example at that. However, Nintendo caught on, and he's now presented as an equal partner to Mario, to the point that Main/TheYearOfLuigi was celebrated in his honor. He's also been a perfect attendee in Super Smash Bros. as an unlockable character in the first three to prominently featuring in the fourth's advertising as a reflection of his huge popularity (The first game even states he's secretly popular in his biography).

* Waluigi started out as a character solely to mirror Mario & Wario's rivalry by giving Luigi an enemy and completely lacking a personality beyond being overconfident and narcissistic. Since then, Waluigi has steadily increased in popularity over the years, even earning himself an appearance in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'' as an Assist Trophy. The biggest reason he's so popular is thanks to ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'', where the fans of the series were able to see Waluigi in a different (crazier and funnier) look. He also became more of a mischievous trickster with some bits of TragicVillain and ButtMonkey as more games came out, giving him an overall better characterization other than just being a "rival to Luigi", got awesome music and stages to his name (particularly [[VideoGame/MarioKart Waluigi Pinball]] in ''Mario Kart DS''), and got more [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious animations and roles]] in the games he appeared in. All of this with the Mario series constantly pulling in new fans who didn't have to deal with his early [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] moments, have been responsible for his more positive reception, even if he still is a BaseBreakingCharacter.

* [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy Rosalina]] was very popular among the fans of the series, mainly thanks to her being one of the only, if not ''the'' only female in the main series that is not a DamselInDistress and has more character and personality to her. Since her debut, she has appeared in several spin-off titles, [[spoiler:was an unlockable character in ''Super Mario 3D World'']], and even became playable in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', possibly the highest honor for any Nintendo character. Nowadays, she's more along the lines of a BaseBreakingCharacter, [[SpotlightStealingSquad thanks to overshadowing several longer standing characters]].

* ''[=DK64=]'' gave us Chunky, who is liked more than his younger brother Kiddy from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry3DixieKongsDoubleTrouble'' for having a [[CowardlyLion more ]] [[RealMenWearPink developed]] [[GentleGiant personality.]] There is also Lanky. No doubt because the two provide most of the comedy in game and the DK Rap.

is also Lanky. No doubt because the two provide most popular of the comedy Kongs introduced in game [=DK64=] due to his uniqueness, fun personality and the DK Rap.novelty of playing as a different type of ape.

* Fans have been begging to see King K. Rool (and, by extension, the Kremlings in general) come back for years now.

* Fans Due to once being series mainstays that have been begging to see PutOnABus since 2008, King K. Rool (and, by extension, the Kremlings in general) come back for years now.have tons of fans demanding their return.



* Ashley the CuteWitch from the ''VideoGame/WarioWare'' series has only appeared in a few games to date, but she's easily one of the most popular characters in the franchise. As are 9-Volt and 18-Volt. Why? Because their mini games are all based on classic Nintendo franchises. How can anyone not like mini games/microgames based on ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'', ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]]'' and ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}''? Mona also has a lot of fans thanks to her quirky minigames.

* How about [[VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld Yoshi himself]]? Pretty much [[TropeCodifier defined]] the idea of a PowerupMount, [[BreakoutCharacter and was popular enough to get his own series]].

* Tiny Kong also counts for those that didn't hate her being an {{expy}} of Dixie and for those that like her [[MsFanservice teenage appearance]] in later games.



* What about [[VideoGame/DonkeyKong DK himself]]? Arguably the reason for Nintendo's success, he's appeared in over 50 games and is LightningBruiser ''incarnate''! Then again, EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys, right?
