Character Spotlight: Luigi

Rachel Mii Double JumpHappy Tuesday!

I can’t believe the end of the month is already here. It’s time for another Character Spotlight and I’ve chosen one of my all-time favorites!

 

Character Spotlight: Luigi

Luigi was created as such so the Super Mario games could have a two-player option. They changed Mario’s color scheme, thus coming up with Luigi. He soon grew into his own character being deemed as Mario’s younger brother and developed a personality.

He first appeared in the 1983 game Mario Bros. for the NES by Nintendo. In that game, however, there were no differences between him and Mario, other than their colors. He didn’t begin to come into his own until Super Mario Bros. 2 which came out in 1988 for the NES. He was slightly taller than Mario and was able to jump higher as well.

Luigi was always one of my favorites because I felt as though he and I were alike. We’re both the younger sibling, we’re both “player two,” and we’re both afraid of our own shadows. I loved how he was always willing to help no matter how scared he was.

Luigi’s Mansion, which came out in 2001 for the Nintendo Gamecube, is one of my favorite games ever. It’s a simple storyline and it’s a fairly quick and easy game to beat. But what I love most about it is the fact that Luigi is afraid of everything, but he still takes charge as the protagonist and fights to save his brother, who happens to always be the hero.

Luigi is an all-around great guy and he is one of my favorite Nintendo characters. I love playing him any chance I get.
