Question from moellera
What are all the background stories behind all the characters, both good and evil?
I just want to know about every character.
You're kidding right? You have a game starring one of its console makers' biggest franchise characters and you are seriously asking that?
In a nutshell...
Mario Mario - The heroic not-so-typical "knight" who saves the princess. Plumber, Doctor, Referee, Kart Racer, Toymaking Business Co-Owner, and way too many other professions to list. Friend and savior of Peach since childhood.
Luigi Mario - Player 2. A.K.A. Green Guy, him, what's his 'stache, Mario's Brother, etc., Luigi is forever the understudy and a total coward in the face of danger. Jumps higher and farther than his twin brother and skids farther after a run. Friend and (somewhat) savior of Peach since childhood.
Blue Toad and Yellow Toad - Players 3 and 4. New to the franchise as characters.
Toads - As a race, the toads are mushroom people who look to guidance from the princess and hope from the Mario Bros. They come in a variety of colors and sizes.
Princess Peach Toadstool - Less-than-typical-damsel-in-more-than-typical-distress. Peach is the benevolent and beloved ruler of half of the Mushroom Kingdom. Takes to various professions almost as extensively as the Mario Bros.
Yoshis - Dragon-dinosaur creatures with a huge appetite, long tongue, and surprising intelligence. The various Yoshi colors mean little anymore (they only did in Super Mario World). Yoshis have aided Mario on and off since Mario was a baby.
King Bowser Koopa - Foul in temper, manners, and apparently odor, too. Bowser has been Mario's rival since they were babies. Evil less-than-genius leader of the various baddies you'll meet. Rules half of the Mushroom Kingdom with a clawed fist and breath as fiery and foul as his temper, but wants everything (Peach's half of the kingdom, the Toads and Mario Bros. left to rot in his prisons, and Peach as a trophy wife, no matter who likes it or not).
The Koopalings - Larry, Roy, Lemmy, Wendy, Iggy, Morton, Ludwig, and Bowser Jr.: Bowser's almost-equally-evil sons and daughter. As diverse in personality and methods as they are in appearance.
Kamek - Leader of the Magikoopas and Bowser's royal advisor, doctor, and nanny. Has hated Mario and the Yoshis every since Bowser was a baby. Helps the Koopalings using an odd, ancient Koopa magic.
Bowser's Armies - From the mushrooms-gone-bad Goombas to the turtle-like Koopa Troopas, intelligent ammunition like Bob-Ombs and Bullet Bills, ghostly Boos, cloud-riding Lakitus, squid-like Bloopers, and everything in-between, Bowser's minions are mere obstacles for Mario and co. to stomp or avoid.
