|Mario||Our main hero, Mario has starred in almost any job, being a referee, a doctor, a football player and many, many more. Mona from WarioWare pales in job comparison. He always saves Princess Peach from Bowser whenever she is kidnapped
Special Ability: He has the star spin from Mario Galaxy on his side this time, just shake the Wii remote in order to perform it
|Luigi||For our main man, there is always the plucky brother. Luigi is the second fastest out of the four plumbers, and he is one of the highest jumpers out of the four of them, Though Luigi is cowardly, he still has the courage to take on anything, including ghosts and ghouls in his own mansion.
Special Ability: The Super Somersault. Luigi can perform the Super Somersault from Super Mario Brothers 2 when being crouched for at least five seconds.
|Wario||Mario’s polar opposite, Wario is the greedy, money loving, minigame making scoundrel that we all know and love, being the slowest out of the bunch, Wario is slow and a very low jumper, but his strength makes up for it since he is one of the strongest out of the four main plumbers.
Special Ability: The Wario Dash. His signature move from the Wario Land games, Wario can smash through blocks that would normally need a power up to smash through, you just need to shake the Wii Remote whilst running in order to smash through enemies and blocks with ease.
|Waluigi||Wario’s bomb tossing, money grabbing brother, Waluigi is the fastest out of the plumbers and he is one of higher jumpers, though he may seem dumb, his knowledge on explosives is one of the greatest in the kingdom. Though he is good with bombs, he will do anything he can to cheat, even though he thinks that everyone else cheats against him, get him mad and you’ll regret it
Special Ability: Bomb toss. An ability that would normally need a Bomber Flower, Waluigi can toss bombs in his regular state by pressing the one button on the Wii remote, he can throw a maximum of two bombs at a time, but he can use it to his advantage when fighting bosses.

This new plumber looks surprisingly like a combination of Mario and Peach, but she seems to act like the two of them combined as well, but luckily the Mario Brothers are accepting of this new female plumber coming on this adventure with them.
Special Ability: Super Hover. Peach’s special move from SMB2, this time however it can be charged up so she can hover for at least 20 seconds longer than her usual hovering time, just hold the one button in the air to hover.
|She’s unlocked after beating world 1|
The Princesses main lackey, Toadette plays similar to Luigi except her traction is quite poor, she does have a considerable amount of speed when it comes to picking up plants and tossing them.
Special Ability: Quick Toss. She’s faster than anyone else when picking up plants or any other player, and she can throw them farther than anyone else in the game.
|She’s unlocked during the middle of World 3|
A mysterious traveler from another world who has come to the Mushroom Kingdom to gather and return the Cosmic Stars back to their rightful owners, Mario seems to compare Nova to a familiar Pink puffball from Popstar, coincidence or a traveler from Popstar? The world may never know Special Ability:
Cosmic clone creator. Nova uses his magic sword to create cosmic clones of any of the characters on screen, the clones follow Nova like Pikmin and they can be used like Pikmin as well, though they do get killed in one hit, no matter how strong they are. Only three can be used at a time and each one can use the respective abilities of the character that he copied
|You must collect all the Cosmic Stars and trade them in at Miyamoto’s music house, play the custom music game after trading in the stars to gain Nova as a character.|
|Name: Paper Mario||
Seems like Paper Mario has joined the bros in this adventure after appearing from what seemed to be nowhere, but what could you expect, he’s made of paper. Paper Mario has the same stats as Mario but he can jump higher and he is slightly more powerful.
Special Ability: World flip. Paper Mario can flip the world into 3D at any point in order to find secret paths or items, sometimes Bosses can be beaten in new ways using this move
|Buy him for half your star coins at World 1’s Item store|
|Name: Sonic the Hedgehog||
Mario’s biggest rival has joined him in this adventure, having the fastest speed out of any character that you can buy, Sonic is ready to spin through the worlds at a quick speed, nothing will stop the wind from flowing by him, and if you try then it’s a ball of spikes for you.
Special Ability:The Super Sonic Boost. Sonic can use the coins he has collected to use the Super Sonic Boost, which allows him to boost through the level at an insane speed, all other players must hang on for dear life as this blue dude with an attitude speeds on through.
|Complete the DLC course World Ring in order to unlock him|
The mysterious Queen of the cosmos and the mother of all Lumas, Rosalina returns in her Comet Observatory to help the Mario Brothers in their quest to return the Cosmic Stars, though not armed with her Star Spin, her new ability makes her more practical for many of the puzzles in the game
Special Ability: Luma Summon. Similar to Nova's Cosmic clones, however the lumas that Rosalina summons are able to be guided by using the Wii-U game-pad, they can flick switches and touch blocks as well as spit star bits at enemies, think of them as a secret second player alongside you at all times
|Beat the first level of World 9|

She can even be kicked when in her shell||Buy the Mingler Pack DLC|
|Name: Miles Tails Prower||Sonic's two tailed buddy is taking time off of tinkering with gadgets to help the Mario Brothers in their adventures, though he may not be as fast as Sonic, his two tails allow him to use a very unique abilitySpecial Ability:
Tail helicopter. Tails spins his tails in order to take off like a helicopter, get to new heights you wouldn't normally be able to reach with the Propeller Shroom, and if you press the one button whilst flying you'll be able to drop ring bombs on the foes below
|Buy the Mingler Pack DLC|
|Name: Shadow Clone???||A mysterious entity that is neither in this world or the next, some say he looks like Mario, others say he looks like Luigi, but what we do know is that this guy means business when he's in play.Special Ability:
Form shift. When the Shadow clone is in play, he can transform into one of the other characters on screen with VERY weakened abilities, if you use this ability then get used to seeing more of the weaknesses and less of the strengths, however as time passes he'll be able to use abilities that even you may not have seen before!
