|Debut||Mario Tennis (2000)|
Waluigi (Japanese: ワルイージ, Waruīji) is Luigi's very tall and skinny rival, and Wario's partner. Waluigi made his debut in Mario Tennis, and since then, he has made playable appearances in many of the Mario series' spin-off titles. He has been voiced by Charles Martinet ever since his debut. His name is derived from the Japanese words, Warui and Ruīji, meaning "bad" and "Luigi".
Creation and DevelopmentEdit
The details of Waluigi's past are unclear since he has no confirmed background, although he has evidently been antagonizing the Mario Bros., especially Luigi, for quite some time before his debut as seen in the opening of Mario Tennis, where he and Luigi confront each other.
Waluigi returns as an unlockable character in Mario Kart: Mega Mash-Up. He is a large racer and his karts and bikes will follow a purple and orange (sometimes also deep blue) colour scheme. You can unlock him by getting Gold on the Mirror Shell Cup.
He will do the following to each stat in whatever kart or bike he rides:
- Speed: +1
- Weight: +2
- Acceleration: +3
- Handling: +0
