Ever since I first played ‘Mario Tennis’, Wario is my favorite Mario Brother, mostly because his taunt was hissing “HEY, STUPID!” at the other players on the court.  I usually don’t like the yellow guy best, but in this case, the primary player comes across as kind of a jerk, while Luigi seems to be dealing with some emotional issues.  As for Waluigi, I’m… not sure he’s even human?  He has the body of a spider, if it’s spider-mom had mated with David Bowie, and that’s just WRONG, leading to today’s N64 query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) still thinks it’s funny that his name is canonically “Mario Mario”, asking: Which of the four Mario siblings is the best Mario Brother?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. I would have to go with Mario Mario. (Yeah, their last name is Mario, I have no idea how) Except in western Super Mario bros. 2, where Luigi is superior.
