Luigi is a major character in the Super Mario Bros franchise. While generally portrayed as a sidekick, he's proven to be a hero in his own right.


Luigi is one of the seven Star children alongside Princess Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Wario, Donkey Kong, and Mario. He was kidnapped by Kamek the Magikoopa as a baby, but was later rescued by the Yoshi clan. Since then Luigi, alongside his brother have developed into true heroes.

Powers and Abilities

  • Superhuman Physique: As a star child, Luigi has superhuman strength, speed, durability, and agility. He can shatter blocks made of brick with his bare hands, survive the vacuum of space, and is the greatest jumper in the Mushroom Kingdom, surpassing even his brother.
  • Pyrokinesis: Like his brother, Luigi has the ability to conjure and shoot fire at his opponents. Unlike his brother however, Luigi's fireballs are colored green, and aren't effected by gravity.
  • Thunderhand: Luigi has the ability to harness electricity in battle with a technique known as the Thunderhand. He uses it to electrocute his enemies, paralyze his opponents, and launch projectiles back at his opponents.
  • Negative Zone: Luigi initiates a strange dance which creates a giant green void. The void causes a random status effect to anyone in it, ranging from a decrease in speed, to constant taunting.


  • Hammer: Luigi most often wields a hammer, which he uses to deflect projectiles and break materials as hard as stone.
  • Polturgust 5000: Originally owned by Professor E Gadd, Luigi uses this vacuum to capture ghosts. It's not only powerful enough to capture ghosts, but lift objects like spiked balls. It also has 3 different types of light; a regular flashlight, a strobe light which is perfect for stunning, and a Darklight feature which is used to locate invisible objects. The polturgust also has 3 different elemental medallions; fire, water, and ice.
  • Vanish Power Flower: In Super Mario 64 DS each playable character had a special ability, activated by a power flower.​ In Luigi's case, it turns him completely invisible and intangible, allowing him to walk through surfaces such as metal bars.
