I never knew Lakitu was an enemy, supposedly I haven't played enough Mario games.

I never knew what he was called until the little "news broadcaster" Lakitu with the camera in Mario 64.

I spent most of the quiz trying to spell piranha. I tried:

Pirrhana

Purrhana

Pirana

Pirrana

Purannah

purrana

Purranha

Pirranha

and then I got it right

Lakitu is sometimes bad, sometimes good
+51
Level 92
Jan 9, 2017
Lakitu is universally evil:

*Most games - flying overhead flinging spinies at you.

*Mario 64 - Basically paparazzi,

*Mariokart - Forces you to keep racing rainbow road, no matter how many times you try to commit suicide to get out of it.

Did I miss anything?

Level 44
Jul 26, 2017
plattitude, I laughed so hard when I read this: "*Mariokart - Forces you to keep racing rainbow road, no matter how many times you try to commit suicide to get out of it."

Level 71

He's the guy that picks you up after you have driven off a cliff. In Super Mario Bros. he throws spinies or whatever they're called at you.
+4
Level 57
Apr 29, 2013
They also operate the camera system in mario 64

Level 37

i swear i always thought goomba was a turd
+1
Level 67
Jul 6, 2013
I never knew what they were called, so my brothers and I always called them mushroom guys.

Level 14
Jan 30, 2013
Waluigi and Wario aren't brothers, they're just partners (not gay)
+2
Level 44
Dec 17, 2015
I think that if a quizzer knows enough about Mario to know that, then he or she should know what the quiz means. And plus, most people do consider them brothers, but I do agree that 'partner,' or even 'opposite of Luigi' would've worked better.
+14
Level 58
Dec 21, 2020
(they are gay)

Thwomp? Bullet Bill? Kamek? Just some suggestions.

Level 18
Jan 11, 2020
Hey, what about Rosalina, and Bob-omb?
+1
Level 85
Dec 22, 2016
I had to look up what Kamek is. I know them as Magikoopas, but apparently they're called Kameks in Japan and some more recent PAL localizations.
+2
Level 49
May 28, 2020
Kamek is actually the name of the magikoopa thats bowsers right hand. magikoopas are the enemies in general

You should accept more spellings of Piranha. I tried everything BUT that.
+7
Level 5
Apr 28, 2015
Piranha is not a hard word to spell
+5
Level 62
Sep 18, 2015
Yes, it is. It's not phonetic. It has a silent 'H'.
+3
Level ∞
Dec 21, 2016
Pirana would have worked though.
+2
Level 78
Dec 21, 2016
I kept trying to spell it like Rihanna. Pirhanna. Finally I just got rid of the 'h' and double 'n' and hoped that QM would accept just "pirana"
+1
Level 78
Dec 21, 2020
The h is not silent, it's pronounced like an i.
+3
Level 45
Apr 3, 2014
Maybe add Bowser Jr., all the Koopalings, Boom Boom, and Dry Bones?

Level 18

You know, DK and Diddy should be accepted.

All fans of the series just refer to Diddy Kong as Diddy, and most call Donkey Kong, DK.

And DK is an ape not a gorilla.

I only played the original Mario in the 1980s when my kids were young. My paltry six correct wasn't enough to grab any points but the quiz brought back fun memories anyway.

+2
Level 61
Sep 9, 2018
Technically Waluigi isn't Warios brother he was created to be a rival of Luigi henc the name "wa" which means something in Japanese and "Luigi" correlating to Luigi. Quick fact Waluigi wasn't created by Nintendo and subsequently Nintendo haven't made a Waluigi based game.

If you've hijacked Lakitu's cloud in Layer-Cake Desert-6 or Superstar Road-7, then you've played New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.

Nov 7, 2023
I'm pretty sure this guy is thinking about "baddie" in terms of the modern slang usage. It's used to refer to an attractive woman: "Oh man that girl is a baddie". I think maybe he doesn't know that baddie is supposed to mean bad guy in this situation
