And it's getting to the point where nobody likes Mario. Luigi the most overrated character in all of media. he has the worst fanbase on the internet. look, i like Luigi too, but dear god, the fanbase is so bad it's really hard for anyone who's not part of that atrocious fanbase to like him. the only reason i still do is because i'm not gonna let a fanbase ruin a character for me.
And what's worse is Luigi is loved for all the wrong reasons. people only like him because he's shy and cute. that's not what Luigi such a great character. i like him because his courage. no matter how scared Luigi is he still takes on his fears no matter what. and might i mention that he actually had the guts to go into Castlevania territory, alone, all by himself in the August Smash direct?
Mario and Luigi have officially traded places, nowadays Luigi is the one everybody loves and Mario is the one either nobody cares about or the one everybody hates. i get that Mario is old news, but c'mon, he made history. and if not for him, there would be no Luigi. Mario doesn't get enough credit.
And it gets even worse, people STILL claim the opposite. Mario is often claimed "overrated" just because he's the face of gaming. yeah, that doesn't mean you can pretend nobody hates him. the internet needs to stop using the excuse that Mario is gaming's greatest icon against people who try to speak the truth the Mario bros fanbase and hatebase. that excuse no longer works. and almost one ever wants to play as Mario anymore either.
I'm not denying that Mario still has fans, but you can't tell me that Mario isn't hated. because he is. you thought Sonic was hated? well Mario is about 5 times more hated. whether it be because people still believe in crappy theories they see on the internet or they just think there's nothing special about him and call him sh*t because he's boring and has no special abilities. yes, Mario is a very boring character, but that doesn't make him a bad character.
