'''Waluigi''' is a recurring character found in the [[Mario (series)|''Mario'']] series who was made to rival [[Luigi]]. Waluigi mainly only appeared in spin-off games such as ''[[Mario Tennis (Nintendo 64)|Mario Tennis]]'' and ''[[Mario Party 3]]''. Waluigi is known to be [[Wario]]'s partner ever since Waluigi made his first appearance in ''[[Mario Tennis (Nintendo 64)|Mario Tennis]]'' for the [[Nintendo 64]] and was voiced by [[Charles Martinet]] ever since. Waluigi also appeared along with Wario and Luigi in ''Super Mario Advance'' games as a palette swap of Mario. He has also appeared in every Mario Party game since ''Mario Party 3'' came out in 2001.

The details of Waluigi's past are unclear since he has no confirmed background, although he was evidently been antagonizing the Mario Bros., especially Luigi, for quite some time before his debut as seen in the opening of ''Mario Tennis,'' where he and Luigi confront each other.


Waluigi's first appearance was in the ''[[Mario Tennis (Nintendo 64)|Mario Tennis]]'' for the [[Game Boy Color]] and [[Nintendo 64]], as Wario's doubles partner. Later, along with [[Princess Daisy]], he joined the Mario Party series' roster in ''[[Mario Party 3]] ''where he played an antagonistic role, in which he owned [[Waluigi's Island|an island full of traps]]; he has been a playable character in many entries in the series since, as well as various Mario sports and [[Mario Kart (series)|kart]]. He and Wario were also the main characters of the intro movies to ''[[Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour]]'' and ''[[Mario Power Tennis]]''. He acts as an antagonist in ''[[Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix]]'', in which he wreaks havoc in the [[Mushroom Kingdom]] by stealing special objects called the Music Keys in order to hypnotize the world with his dancing, thus enabling him to conquer it.


=== ''Mario Tennis'' series ===

Waluigi makes his debut in the game ''[[Mario Tennis (Nintendo 64)|Mario Tennis]] ''as [[Wario]]'s partner and a playable character himself. In the opening of the game, Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Donkey Kong, Yoshi, Paratroopa, and Birdo are getting ready for a tennis tournament. Wario and Waluigi, however, were not invited, which upset the two. Wario and Waluigi interrupted the final match between Mario and Luigi, and Waluigi requests if they could join. Luigi rejects his request, and mocks Waluigi. Waluigi was upset by this, and Luigi and Waluigi prepare to fight, with Mario attempting to break it up, but Wario blocked the way. Just then, [[Bowser]] drops from the sky, knocking Wario and Waluigi to the ground. Everybody readies themselves to battle him, but Bowser says he only wants to play tennis with them. Mario allows Bowser, Wario, and Waluigi to play with them, and everyone cheers. However, a Bob-omb falls into the stadium, hurting everyone.

===''Mario Party'' series===

====''Mario Party 3''====

[[File:Waluigi_Defeats_Bowser.png|thumb|Waluigi defeats Bowser with a kick.]]Waluigi makes his first playable appearance in the ''Mario Party'' series in ''[[Mario Party 3]]'', alongside [[Princess Daisy]]. During [[Story Mode]], Waluigi acts as the true main antagonist of the game. After the player has gotten almost every Star Stamp, Waluigi suddenly appears with the last one, the Mischief Stamp, caged up. Bowser soon appears attempting to get the Star Stamp but Waluigi manages to take out the Koopa King with a single kick after the two of them have a brief fight. Afterwards, inside of fighting one-on-one, Waluigi tells the player that the only way to get the last Star Stamp is to beat him on his board: [[Waluigi's Island]]. After Waluigi loses to the player, he tells the player that he'll remember this and runs away, never to be seen again in Story Mode. 

===Mario Kart series===

====''Mario Kart: Double Dash!!''====

Waluigi makes his first playable appearance in the ''Mario Kart'' series in ''[[Mario Kart: Double Dash!!]]''. Waluigi is a middleweight character and his partner is [[Wario]] who share a [[Bob-omb]] as their [[Special Item]], along with [[Waluigi Stadium]] being his course, and [[Waluigi Racer]] noticeably being his kart.

====''Mario Kart DS''====

Waluigi returns in ''Mario Kart DS'' once again as a medium weight character. His new course is [[Waluigi Pinball]] which is the third course of the [[Flower Cup]].

====''Mario Kart Wii''====

Waluigi returns once again in ''Mario Kart Wii'' as default character. Unlike in ''[[Mario Kart: Double Dash!!]]'' and ''[[Mario Kart DS]]'' he is classified as a heavyweight character with his acceleration bonus being tied with [[Toad (character)|Toad]]. Also [[Waluigi Stadium]] from ''Mario Kart: Double Dash!!'' returns as a retro course.

====''Mario Kart 7''====

Although Waluigi doesn't physically appear in ''Mario Kart 7'' (though he was supposed to appear), [[Waluigi Pinball]] from ''Mario Kart DS'' does return as a retro course.

====''Mario Kart 8''====

Waluigi returns in ''Mario Kart 8'', once again as a default heavyweight character like in ''Mario Kart Wii''. However is classified as one of the lighter heavyweights alongside [[Donkey Kong]], [[Rosalina]] and [[Roy Koopa]].

===''Super Smash Bros. ''series===

====''Super Smash Bros. Brawl''====

While Waluigi is not in the roster of playable characters, he appears as an Assist Trophy, along with his tennis racket, in a nod to his first appearance.

====''Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U''====

Waluigi returns as an Assist Trophy in this game. Oddly he is representing the Wario series instead of the Mario series, but this could be an error since Waluigi has never appeared in them. Waluigi acts the same in Brawl except he moves much faster and his attacks are a tad stronger.



Waluigi and Wario appear to have a complicated relationship, sometimes working together (as seen in ''[[Mario Super Sluggers]]'') or competing. Waluigi's partner in ''Mario Kart: Double Dash!! ''is Wario, as well, so many people think they are brothers just like Mario and Luigi. However, Waluigi has never been confirmed to be related to Wario family-wise.

===[[Princess Daisy]]===

Waluigi has a crush on Daisy. However, the two share bad chemistry and Daisy never returned her feelings to him.

=== [[Luigi]] ===

Waluigi and Luigi are rivals, in a similar fashion to Mario and Wario's rivalry. Waluigi likes to pick on Luigi, and the two share bad chemistry in ''[[Mario Super Sluggers]]. ''In Waluigi's first appearance in ''[[Mario Tennis (Nintendo 64)|Mario Tennis]], ''Luigi mocked Waluigi when he asked to play tennis with them.
