Super Mario Bros. Wonder


Super Mario Bros. has plenty of characters to choose from to customize your experience.
There are characters like Yoshi and Nabbit who are completely immune to damage at the cost of having your powerups disabled.
You can also pick more challenging characters if you want a harder experience and want to enjoy all of the powerups the game has to offer.

All of the playable characters in Super Mario Bros. Wonder offer unique experiences. There are a few characters that are completely immune to taking damage but playing the game on ‘easy mode’ using such characters means that you will not get to experience any of the powerups that the game has to offer. We have recommendations for players who want an easy time as well as some recommendations for those that want a challenge. Here are our picks for the best characters in Super Mario Bros. Wonder.

Easiest characters to play in Super Mario Bros. Wonder

Here are a few recommendations:

  • Yoshi: Yoshi is a great all-around character with good speed, acceleration, and handling. He can also flutter jump and eat enemies, which can be very helpful in certain situations.

  • Nabbit: Nabbit is a unique character who is completely immune to damage. This makes him a great choice for players who are new to the game or who are struggling to complete certain levels.

  • Toad: Toad is another good all-around character, with balanced stats in all areas. He is also relatively small and light, which can make it easier to avoid obstacles and collect items.

If you are a new player, we strongly recommend picking up Nabbit. Both Nabbit and Yoshi are immune to taking any damage but if you get hit with Yoshi, he gets stunned for a few seconds which can be annoying. To compensate for this downside, you can ride Yoshi and eat enemies. 

Nabbit does not have these special perks but you get complete damage immunity and can play however you want, making it the perfect character for players who just want to experience the levels without any challenge at all.

Challenging characters to play in Super Mario Bros. Wonder

If you are looking for a more challenging character to play, you may want to try one of the following:

  • Mario: Mario is the classic protagonist of the Mario franchise, and he is a good choice for players who want a balanced challenge.

  • Luigi: Luigi is Mario's taller, skinnier brother. He has slightly lower stats than Mario, but he can jump higher and float for a longer period of time.

  • Peach: Peach is a princess who is known for her graceful jumps and floating ability. She is a good choice for players who want a unique playstyle.

Ultimately, the best way to choose a character in Super Mario Wonder is to experiment and see who you like playing the most. There is no right or wrong answer, and the best character for you will depend on your own individual preferences. If you have not played a sidescroller Mario game before, we recommend starting off with Nabbit. But if you want the classic Mario experience, there is no better character than the main man Mario himself!
