Super Mario Bros Wonder: Best Characters to Pick


Super Mario Bros Wonder Mario

Mario has the fastest running speed in the game and also is undoubtedly the best character to pick in Super Mario Bros Wonder. Mario excels in jumping and also has a moderate speed, which makes Mario even better with the help of the power-ups that are available in the game.


Super Mario Bros Wonder Luigi

Luigi comes really close to Mario when it comes to comparison. Although he has a higher jump than Mario, Luigi is a bit slower. Nonetheless, it does not make any difference in the gameplay as both of the characters are almost similar in terms of gameplay.


Super Mario Bros Wonder Yoshi

Yoshi is the best character to pick for players who are just starting with the game. Yoshi can do two extra moves; however, they do not have the ability to use any power-ups that are available in the game. The two exclusive moves of Yoshi are:

  • Eat Enemies and Objects: Yoshi can eat enemies that come in front of him. He also can eat enemies and spit them back, making him invincible to any kind of damage from objects or enemies.
  • Flutter Jump: In addition to his usual jumping abilities, Yoshi can also perform Flutter Jump, which allows him to stay in the air a bit longer.



Nabbit is one of the most beginner-friendly characters in Super Mario Bros Wonder. This character does not take any kind of damage when hit by an enemy. But Nabbit can still die by falling down from a pit or losing his life. Moreover, he also does not have the ability to use any kind of power-ups.
