If you're wondering where I've been, when Super Mario Bros. Wonder was released, I swore off the Mario Wiki to avoid spoilers until I 100% completed it. Now that I have, I'm back and ready to get that article featured!

Hi! I like Super Mario.
I think the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series is full of underrated classics that deserve more love. I enjoy games throughout the Super Mario franchise in general, though.
My favorite Mario character by far is Wario. Aside from Wario, my other favorite character is Donkey Kong. It would be Funky Kong, who is unequivocally more bodacious and potentially even more powerful, but Donkey Kong's storied legacy since the very first game in the franchise, plus his incredible variety of appearances across more than 40 years, mean that I find Donkey Kong more interesting as a whole.

Wario appreciation piece
Wario is the ultimate chaotic neutral of the Mario universe. Unlike Mario, who has nearly no personality to speak of, Wario has a multitude of traits that others might call character flaws, which he recognizes and deliberately uses to his advantage. His lack of hygiene is a force to be reckoned with. Despite supposedly having a face revolting enough to scare even ghosts, one of his best friends is attracted to him; not to mention, he has his pick of the lot. He weighs over 300 pounds, but they might as well be 300 pounds of muscle, considering his consistent ability to duke it out with Bowser and Donkey Kong in terms of raw power. He can easily perform physical feats on a level that Mario could only dream of with a power-up. His childhood resentment has only driven him to make great advancements in kingdom-conquering, discover an extra-dimensional portal on his whim, save an entire world merely by accident, cross the bounds between fiction and reality, and claim what he rightfully deserves - time and time again. As a result, he's become overwhelmingly successful, with a flourishing game company and countless priceless treasures to his name. Clearly, Wario hasn't let Mario break his spirit, as his self-esteem knows no bounds, and when he's not having extravagant adventures, he has a hobby in art - he can be an excellent artist, when he wants to. Because he embraces his imperfections and becomes a better person not in spite of, but because of them, Wario is the shining example of what it means to be human. Oh, and he's also immortal and has made a deal with the devil.
