Mario, Donkey Kong, Bowser, and friends have all come together as the playable characters in Mario Strikers Battle League. Hop in to learn more about what stats they hold.
The third descendant of the Mario Strikers series has finally seen the light of dawn. Since the grandpa Mario Strikers Charged, it has been a century. Others will say it’s just been a bit over 15 years. Could you not listen to them? And since it’s been just a few days of release, there are already overwhelming responses from the switch players. Devs from Next Level Games made it pretty clear that there will be more playable characters in the field very soon, as there are only 10 that can be seen for now.
The gameplay can be read as the old ways. 4-1 formation in both teams suits well in the combined stages from Mushroom Hill and Lava Castle. Each of the 10 players has different skill sets to show, different types of playing the ball, but the same style as they have been for a long, long time. Let’s check out those playable characters in Mario Strikers: Battle League. You will have a fun time, without a doubt.
All Playable Characters in Mario Strikers: Battle League
So, as I have mentioned earlier, there will be 10 playable characters till now. Devs are hoping to add more soon enough. However, let’s talk about the existing ones for now.
Before jumping into the description, I want to let you know what attributes these characters are based on. Their stats are differentiated based on 5 traits. Let’s look at these:
- Strength: Tackling power and the resistance against a tackle.
- Speed: Sprinting capability throughout the game.
- Shooting: Power of the shot and the speed.
- Passing: Speed of a free pass and the range.
- Technique: Shot accuracy and finesse shot capability. Moreover, it also determines the dribbling ability, Hyper Strike skill, and Perfect moves throughout the game.
Based on these stats, let’s go through our heroes on the field.
Ah yes! The Italian plumber is now ready to strike the ball rather than fix the stadium’s waterways. His stats don’t live up to his name for an Italian mid. But the high technique is sure a saver for a fine finish at the end. So, rather than controlling the mid, you should try your best to push him to the end and let him finish the attack. Well, you do have options to modify his stats with gears. That is up to you.
Senor Luigi more or less resembles his brother. However, he is a bit behind with the stats. Let me tell you, technique alone cannot save Luigi. Even if you think of using gears, there won’t be much noticeable impact throughout the game.
Devs had plans for Wario. The stats here are clearly showing the rage that was fallen on him. These imbalanced stats make Wario quite a tough choice to let be on the team. Only relying on his strength and shooting skills might not be enough to roam around the field even though the stats are rampaging stats. Well, if you keep the strategy like we already discussed with Mario, Wario can be deadly in the D-box.
Waluigi is strong, Waluigi can run, and this all, folks. His stats are showing pretty poor for shooting and passing. You do not want to let him take control of the midfield. Instead, push him upward with the mindset of finishing the attack. The speed skills can make him squeeze through to the end.

Though the Princess of Mushroom Kingdom falls behind because of being lightweight, she shows some of the men who run the midfield. Her speed definitely makes her an attacking mid, along with the passing skill. Even though her shooting spree lacks point, finesse technique can cover that up with proper timing.
Rosalina is quite the opposite complementary of Princess Peach. Besides protecting the cosmos, Rosalina is the solid choice to protect your score line from falling behind. Her shooting spree, strength, and technique make her a deadly finisher.
Without any doubt, Donkey Kong is here to protect the mid with the role of a defensive mid. Because of low speed and technique, he is far better at shooting from the mid and confuses the opposite goalie. You can rely on him with the defense. Moreover, he is the best choice to clear your goal line from a prominent threat. I would suggest expanding on his strength and passing with the available gears rather than trying to make him an all-rounder. He is the best the way he is in mid.
King Koopa is here to lead the team from behind. His immense strength is enough to create fear in the opponent attackers. The leveling shooting power makes Bowser, the King Koopa, clears out the ball from the midline, even sometimes targeting the opponent’s net. As he lacks in speed, he is better in the position he is at that moment.
Toad is the guy we know as False 9. He likes to blend in with the mid, but he is ready even to finish the game at the appropriate time. His speed and passing skills make him create chances from time to time for the striker. Moreover, he is prepared to take the opportunity for himself if any means necessary. The only weakness we will see is his Strength. Well, they can’t harm you if they can’t catch you, right?
This jolly-minded big green dinosaur knows how to play football but lacks where the stats should be. Yoshi has to be on constant alert. He is going to get the ball, and he is called to release quickly or take the shot for himself if he fancies. His high shooting and passing skills talk for themselves. As the other stats fall behind, he is not the guy to rely on to have control over the ball. He can be a maestro in quick passes; that makes him control the mid by not having control over the ball.
That is all for the players, folks. I hope the devs come up quickly with new playable characters in Mario Strikers, and we will introduce them to you right away. Till then, Adios!
