Character DescriptionEdit


Artwork from Super Mario World

One of Mario's oldest enemies, Wiggler is one of the well known enemies from the Mushroom Kindom. Making its debut in 1990 in Super Mario World, Wigglers are known for their short temper and tantrums, even the slightest mistake will make a Wiggler angry but this normally happens when someone messes with their flowers. Since its debut, Wiggler has appeared in various some sports games and even appearing as a racer in Mario Kart 7.

In Super Smash Bros IVEdit

Wiggler makes its second appearance fighting (although the only playable one) here. Wiggler is a fast character with defensive traits that make other players have a hard time pummeling him. He can use flowers and botanical abilities to his advantage along with bats and Leaf Guy assists. His Neutral-Special is Wiggler watering with his water can, once enough water is used, a large vine with branches forms which does lots of damage. His Side-Special is the shockwave that all Wiggler bosses perform in the Mario & Luigi series. His Up-Special is Wiggler getting carried by two Leaf Guys. His Down-Special is Wiggler pulling out turnips from the ground, unlike Peach's down special, he automatically throws them upwards and may fall on opponents or land in the ground. If they successfully land in on he ground, they'll grow to be a Piranha Plant.

His in-game description is here:


Wiggler wiggles himself into the competition to turn the battlefield into his own garden! Oh and opponents will probably turned into seeds!
