Luigi (Japanese: ルイージ, Ruīji) is Mario's younger, taller, thinner twin brother. He is a major protagonist of the Mario series. Luigi has helped and fought alongside his brother on many occasions. Throughout his life, he has lived in Mario's shadow, developing both cowardly and heroic tendencies. Mario Bros. marks his first appearance in the Mario series and his debut in general. Originally a palette swap of Mario, Luigi was created to facilitate a second player option. Since the two-player mode was dropped from most main Super Mario games beginning with Super Mario Land, Luigi has gained his own identity and personality. This is especially noticeable in installments for the Luigi's Mansion series of games, as well as the Mario & Luigi series.
Compared to Mario, Luigi is slimmer and taller. His face is noticeably thinner, his eyes are slightly more bluish, and his hair is the same style as Mario's, but more of an auburn or dark maroon. Luigi's mustache is dark brown, sometimes black, and smooth, unlike Mario's ragged mustache.
Luigi also wears clothes similar to Mario, but his shirt and hat are green instead of red. Layered over the shirt is blue overalls, which are a darker blue than Mario's. He also has brown work shoes, again darker than Mario's, with tan bottoms that reach above his ankles. Artwork however sometimes shows Luigi with the same color of blue overalls and brown shoes as Mario. In Luigi's Mansion, Luigi's shoes have Velcro on them, which is not present in any other game. Luigi's Cap is similar to Mario's Cap, being green instead of red and having an "L" replace Mario's signature "M"; the "L" was in italic from Mario Kart 64 to Luigi's Mansion for a few years. Artwork for the Mario & Luigi series has consistently depicted Luigi as wearing red and white striped socks; this trait is not present in any other games.
Luigi is portrayed as timid and a bit of a coward. He is also extremely worrisome and is considerably self-conscious. However, he overcomes his fears and acts like a hero when necessary, such as when someone he knows is in danger. On the New Super Mario Bros. Wii website, it describes Luigi as "Mario's fearless brother". In keeping with his personality-based Power Flower, a sign in Big Boo's Haunt in Super Mario 64 DS describes Luigi as "wispy."
In the manual for Mario Party, it is stated that Luigi is smarter than Mario.
Arguably, Luigi's most apparent trait is his seeming cowardice. Though he showed several instances of cowardice in early non-game media such as The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, his cowardly nature was not actually shown in-game until Luigi's Mansion (aside from a few hints in Paper Mario), and has carried over to almost all of Luigi's subsequent appearances. Although Luigi's phasmophobia is his most overbearing fear, he usually reconsiders at the mere thought of any monsters or trials, especially in the Mario & Luigi series. However, Luigi can be quite brave, and has saved the Mushroom Kingdom alongside his brother multiple times. Super Paper Mario especially glimpses into Luigi's more courageous side, showing him boldly rushing into dangerous situations and rarely even implicating his cowardice. In addition, the ending for Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon also hinted that he got over his phasmophobia, or at the very least takes exception to Polterpups and makes friends with the ghosts of Evershade Valley.
Another strong element of Luigi's personality is his apparent complex of being overlooked. Although his Superstar status has earned him many fans, including an entire fan club led by Toadia and multiple supporting Toads (one of which claims to be his biggest fan in Super Mario 64 DS), even Bowser and the Koopa Troop have occasional trouble with remembering his name (as seen in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga), and he appears to be almost unknown in the Beanbean Kingdom. Although Luigi's biggest reactions to his frequent overlookings in the Mario & Luigi series are a few "…"s and face-faults, his inattention was played up for comic relief in Paper Mario, with the snarky man in green complaining about being left behind and perpetually training for that elusive next adventure. Luigi's bio in Mario Party 5 states that he has been gaining popularity in recent years.
Luigi's state of being in the shadow of his brother shows strongly in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. An example would be the way Luigi is almost never happy, how his commentary is very monotoned, and how one of his taunts is a bashful kick of the ground. Also, his Final Smash, Negative Zone, seemed to have developed because of living in his brother's shadow forever. Additionally, whenever the crowd cheers for Luigi, not too many people are heard cheering for him and when the announcer says Luigi's name, he sounds a little surprised. Despite this, however, Masahiro Sakurai did not intend to play up Luigi's overshadowed status, instead aiming to make him "everyone's favorite man in green." To this extent, Miyamato seems to have succeeded outside of the narrative.
Luigi is one of the four main protagonists. He is also an optional boss in Chapter 7, depending on which team the player chose.

After sucking them in, some Luiginoids and the Zeekeeper appear on the screen and do the Zee Egg special move, with the energy blast blowing away the players from the portal and the stage. Luigi then wakes up and starts fighting normally.
Before the beginning of the Wii U and 3DS title, Luigi finally sees Mario return home after his actions in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, and the two decide to take it easy for a while, especially with no Bowser to worry about. However, one day while the brothers are relaxing, they are suddenly arrested, under the allegation that they were not there to stop the Wario Bros. (who had also been framed) from robbing the royal treasury. After a few days in jail alongside their rivals, Luigi and the others are tasked with recovering the stolen treasure. While Wario and Waluigi set off in their own directions, Luigi chooses to follow his brother towards Toad Town, where they find that it had been ransacked. He and Mario would soon notice Mecha-Mario and Mecha-Wario entering the woods with sacks full of money, before being spotted and almost captured again. However, the two decide to run off, giving chase to the döppelgangers. During the chase, not only does Luigi lose sight of the robots, but Mario as well. As such, he ends up lost in Grassland Getaway and is cornered by some Venus Fire Traps in an underground cavern, and only with the help of Mario does he manage to escape. Together, they track down the Wario Bros. and in addition to overcoming their differences, ultimately reclaim the treasure and defeat Bowser once more. Thanks to their heroic deeds, both Luigi and Mario have the allegations wiped clean from their criminal records. In terms of stats, Luigi has the highest jump of the four characters, and his running speed is second only to Waluigi's. However, he is also the weakest in terms of both power and defense.
At the beginning of the game, Luigi is seen relaxing with Mario in their house when the Mailtoad arrives on their doorstep and delivers a letter inviting the brothers to Peach's Castle. After arriving at the palace, Luigi notices a Power Star lying off to the side of the doorstep and doesn't hesitate to grab it. Heading inside, Luigi expresses his usual cowardice as the two brothers make their way through the dark halls and to the dining room, where they would be surprised by Peach and a number of guests, who had all thrown a party to celebrate the brothers' 40th birthday. Digging into the cake, Luigi notices that it was spiked with a large amount of cayenne-pepper and (as does Mario) falls unconscious. A while later, it is revealed that Luigi had made his way all the way to Sarasaland and had entered a painting of a haunted graveyard that was located in Daisy's castle in an attempt to prove his courage. He is then rescued by Mario, and the two finish their quest. Luigi is not playable during the final level, but can be used there after the game is beaten. Luigi jumps higher than Mario can, but runs more slowly. He also has access to a large number of power-ups; some of which are exclusive to him.

Compared to his appearance in previous Super Smash Bros. titles, Luigi's moveset has been entirely reworked to be primarily based around his starring roles in the Luigi's Mansion and Mario & Luigi series and as such can no longer be compared to his older brother. Luigi's moveset includes the Thunderhand and Hammer Slam attacks from the Mario & Luigi series as his neutral and down special moves respectively, as well as using the Poltergust 5000 in a manner similar to how Professor E. Gadd used the Poltergust 3001 in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga for his side special move.
| ||Throughout the Mushroom Kingdom no name is more forgotten than Luigi's. When you live in the shadow of the man who has saved the princess multiple times, it's no wonder Luigi will be remembered as Number 2. Granted, Luigi has gone on a number of his own adventures, and has made a title for himself as the Mushroom Kingdom's top vacuum-er of ghosts... even if he may be terrified of them. With the Poltergust devices developed by Professor E. Gadd, he's managed to seal away hundreds of ghosts into portraits, and become King Boo's greatest enemy.|
| ||Though the Mario Brothers are most-known to use Fireballs to defeat Bowser's minions, in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga Luigi gains a new signature technique: to create lightning in his hands. Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga also gave Luigi a giant mallet to use in battle, which has become a staple for both him and his brother for their RPG outings. Both of these techniques serve to differentiate the Player 2 from his Player 1, even though Luigi's jumping prowess already sets them apart a fair bit.|
| ||Boolossus, the Jumbo Ghost, is a large Boo that is... made up of other, smaller Boos. In Luigi's Mansion, Luigi accidentally releases fifty Boos and their leader from their prison in the Cold Storage, and fifteen of these Boos later form up into a giant Boo named Boolossus. In Super Smash Bros. Luigi harnesses Boolossus' power by releasing him from his Poltergust, who will then travel across the stage slowly and damage all foes that touch him. A terrifyingly huge foe... though, like Luigi's ego, Boolossus shrinks as he is attacked.|
Luigi is Mario's brother and sidekick in various adventures, Luigi and Mario are loyal to each other and is highly on friendly terms, Luigi often saves Mario in the Luigi's Mansion series, however in some Mario games, Luigi is totally absent and Mario has to do his adventure all alone.

Luigi and King Boo absolutely hate each other and is Luigi's arch-enemy because King Boo always scares Luigi.
Luigi and Wario lack interaction with each other due to Luigi's rivalry with Waluigi, however in Super Mario 64 DS, Luigi has jumped on Wario and Wario tried to attack Luigi, meaning they are also enemies sometimes.
Bowser and Luigi sightly interacts with each other since Luigi fights Bowser just to help Mario.
Princess Peach and Luigi sightly interacts with each other in some games, but they seem to be on friendly terms. Princess Peach sometimes kisses him in the cheek when Luigi saves Peach instead, which doesn't seem to bother Mario.
