* [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy Rosalina]] is 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, having lost the popularity she used to have.

* Mizzter Blizzard from ''VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar'' is this due to being a TragicMonster who also happens to be the only character in the game with any characterization whatsoever. To a lot of fans, he's one of the few redeemable things about the game.

* ''VideoGame/PaperMarioColorSplash'' has the Shy Guy on the Sunset Express that can be talked to. By questioning his role as a member of Bowser's army he acts as a rare example of WhatMeasureIsAMook in the ''Mario'' series and a deconstruction of a PunchClockVillain. [[spoiler: His death when you are forced to fight him later on in the game is a tear jerker.]]

* Birdo's appearance in ''Color Splash'' is also met with praise thanks to being both funny and featuring a reference to ''Doki Doki Panic''.

* Less a character and more a species but Boos have been hugely popular for years with their CreepyCute design. Notably they're the first (and so far only) enemy to get an amiibo. Their leader King Boo, is also very popular among fans, especially for his role as the BigBad in the ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'' series. Many fans were disappointed when he didn't return in ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'', as he was playable in ''VideoGame/MarioKartDoubleDash'' and ''VideoGame/MarioKartWii'' and appeared as a boss in ''VideoGame/MarioKartDS''.

* 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?

* Bowser's original seven children, the Koopalings, were a well loved QuirkyMinibossSquad before being replaced by [[ReplacementScrappy Bowser Jr.]] Their surprise return in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'' made many nostalgic fans happy.

* Diddy would then have the same thing happen to him because his co-star Dixie, along with being a girl, could use [[HelicopterHair her hair]] to make jumps easier. Dixie was so popular that many were upset that she didn't appear in ''[[VideoGame/DonkeyKong64 DK64]]'' and welcomed her return in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryTropicalFreeze''.

* 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 BaseBreaker.
