The Super Mario Bros. Movie is a classic that many fans have fond memories of. With characters like Mario, Luigi, Peach, Donkey Kong, and Bowser all making an appearance, it’s no wonder that viewers wanted to know who was the strongest of them all. So, we’ve put together a list of the most powerful characters in The Super Mario Bros. Movie, ranked from weakest to strongest.
At the bottom of the list is Toad, the weakest member of the main cast. Although he never had much time to show off his skills as a fighter in this film, he is a capable explorer, never backing down from a fight. Luigi is also quite weak, but he proves his worth when he helps his brother defeat Bowser in the final battle.
Mario is the main protagonist of this film and is agile, but he requires a lot of training and the power of some red mushrooms to prove he can accompany the princess on her journey. Peach, on the other hand, is a powerful leader of the Mushroom Kingdom, having trained herself to protect her people and enhance her skills.
Donkey Kong is superior to Mario and Peach in terms of brute strength, easily beating Mario senseless during their gladiator match in the Jungle Kingdom. Kamek is Bowser’s right-hand man and has access to powerful sorcery that he uses against his master’s enemies. But Bowser is the most powerful character in the movie, with an entire army of Koopas, Goombas, and so many other deadly foes. He may have been defeated and locked away, but Bowser remains the greatest threat to the Mushroom Kingdom.
