Super Mario Bros. Wonder Characters Guide: What Character is Best?

Super Mario Bros. Wonder offers over ten different characters for you to choose from. It’s a tough choice picking between fan favorites such as Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Peach, and even Daisy. However, what is the difference between these characters, and which character in Super Mario Bros. Wonder is best?

We’ve outlined all the differences between each playable character, with some characters having the ability to not take damage. Here’s everything you need to know about the playable characters in Super Mario Bros. Wonder

All Super Mario Bros. Wonder Characters

Super Mario Bros Wonder Playable Character Menu

There are a total of twelve different playable characters in Wonder. Each of these can be found below:

  • Mario
  • Luigi
  • Peach
  • Daisy
  • Yellow Toad
  • Blue Toad
  • Toadette
  • Yoshi
  • Red Yoshi
  • Yellow Yoshi
  • Light-Blue Yoshi
  • Nabbit

Not all of these characters play the same. The game has a selection of characters with special abilities to make the game easier. These include the four playable Yoshi characters and Nabbit. They are unable to take damage, which makes these characters an excellent choice for anyone wanting to play without worrying about enemies. Additionally, they allow children who might struggle with the complexities of a platformer to enjoy the game without taking damage or avoiding enemies.

The rest of the playable characters all play normally. Each can take damage and doesn’t have any special moves to defeat enemies like Yoshi does. 

Which Super Mario Bros. Wonder Character Is Best?

Overall, Yoshi is the strongest and best character in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. With the ability to not take damage and eat your enemies, it’s hard to argue that any other character is better. However, we do recommend for the thrill of defeating enemies, you choose someone like Mario or Peach, who can take damage normally.
