Who reigns supreme as the top Mario RPG character?

1) Fawful

First Appearance: Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (Game Boy Advance, 2003)

If there has ever been a more creative bludgeoning of English grammar and syntax than what Fawful commits in the Mario & Luigi games, I have yet to read it. Fawful, who first appeared as sidekick to the evil Cackletta, has provided more memorable quotes than even the most prolific of characters in literature.

“I have fury!”

“Beef? I am lacking in beef. Fawful is beefless!”

“Your lives that I spit on are now but a caricature of a cartoon drawn by a kid who is stupid!”

“I drizzled rage dressing on the country next door. Rage dressing on a salad of evil!”

That’s just a handful of Fawful’s brilliant non-sequitors and declarations, and the remainder of his lines are equally side-splitting. Despite a seeming lack of lucidity, Fawful is also a tenaciously persistent threat, evolving from a mere pawn, to a scheming shadow, to the main antagonist over the course of three games. Fawful is the embodiment of the creative spirit of the Mario RPGs and one of the best Nintendo characters, period.

“I have chortles!”

    I was about to complain that Geno wasn’t number one, and then I saw Fawful and realized that, yes, Geno is not as awesome as Fawful. He had Fury! And as he would like to remind you:

    “But…the day comes soon when Fawful rises again, and then no baby’s candy has safety! I am counting chickens before they are even eggs, before the chickens are even chickens!

    I miss Jr. Troopa. He had a very brief cameo in TTYD, though. I miss Paper Mario in general. Like… REAL Paper Mario type stuff. I was a big fan of Super Paper Mario, and was glad to see the change in gameplay. I expected Sticker Star to be like the first two games, but it really wasn’t. Not to say that Sticker Star wasn’t a great game in its own right, but I want another Paper Mario with a long story, crazy partners and action commands, and a seamless world.
