Universe: Super Mario
Debut: Mario Bros (1983)
Affiliations: Mushroom Kingdom
Availability: Starting fighter
Background: Luigi is Mario’s older, taller brothers. However where as Mario is brave, Luigi is afraid of nearly everything. However he still manages to face his fears if it means helping his brother. He now has several spinoffs of his own including the popular Luigi’s Mansion series.
Reasoning: He was an unlockable character in SSB and has remained thereafter. He has also been confirmed for SSB4.
Thoughts: It doesn’t look as though he is any less of a clone of Mario than he was in Brawl. Not even a single move from his other games, including his iconic Poltergust vacuum. I thought they were going to fix the clone problem? Oh well, attack of the clones part II.
