Luigi
Luigi is the younger brother of Mario, the popular hero of the Super Mario Brothers series. While his brother wears red, Luigi wears green. Luigi is also taller and skinnier than Mario.

Often overlooked, at least in comparison to Mario, Luigi was even left out of two games (Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine, though he was made playable in Mario 64 DS) and has been reduced to non-playable-character status in several others (such as Paper Mario and Super Mario RPG). In Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga, one of the running gags was that no one knew who Luigi was - not even Bowser. One of the nicknames Bowser gives him is "Mr. Lean 'n Green," which is where this fanlisting's name comes from. Luigi did, however, get two games of his very own, Mario is Missing (an educational game) and Luigi's Mansion.

One of Luigi's most impressive abilities, first seen in Super Mario Bros. 2, is his ability to jump very high. This ability was carried over to later ports of Super Mario Bros. 3.

Especially in later games, like Superstar Saga and Luigi's Mansion, Luigi is usually portrayed as cowardly and a little clueless. In Superstar Saga, he seems to take on the role of housekeeper while Mario runs off on adventures, saving the world. However, these characteristics combined with his relative obscurity make him quite endearing.
