―Luigi's win quote

Luigi is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. He was confirmed along with the other characters who appear in the original Super Smash Bros. on January 24, 2015. Charles Martinet (who also assumes the role for Mario, Wario, Waluigi and Dr. Mario) provides the role as Luigi which uses voice clips from various Super Smash Bros. games.


Two years after the widely acclaimed classic Donkey Kong, Shigeru Miyamoto wished to incorporate the two-player competitive and cooperative gameplay of the arcade game Joust into his own game. To this end, he created Luigi, Mario's twin brother, for the arcade game Mario Bros. However, Luigi's actual debut was in the otherwise unrelated Game & Watch game of the same name.

Luigi's name is said to have been inspired by a pizza parlor called "Mario & Luigi's", which was located near Nintendo of America's headquarters. Coincidentally, his name was also noted to be similar to the Japanese word 「類似」 (ruiji), which means "similar", and further ties into his formative years as a palette swap.

Luigi's original design, both in official artwork and gameplay, was a palette swap of Mario. In this case, his overalls and shirt were green and black, respectively; in addition to contrasting with Mario's red and blue color scheme, Luigi's color scheme came about because of the limited color palettes in the arcade version of Mario Bros. While the Game & Watch version of the game has one player control both brothers, the arcade version features Luigi as the character that the second player would control.

On September 14, 2001 due to the Japanese release of the Nintendo Gamecube, Luigi stars in his own video game, Luigi's Mansion on the same late year. In the Luigi's Mansion series, several games and M.U.G.E.N Trilogy, Luigi becomes afraid of ghosts, especially Hsien-Ko who is classified as a ghost character.
