Mario football fever has hit the globe once more, but the question remains; who is the best character in Mario Strikers Battle League?
Like any of the best Mario multiplayer titles, the characters that feature in the game all have different attributes that set them apart.
There will always be people like my mum that pick Yoshi no matter what his stats are, but there are others that will forgo their allegiances with a favourite character in favour of someone with better skills.
Just like when I use Wario in Super Mario Party!
With 10 famous faces to chose from and a chance to have four in your team, it’s important to know who does what and how well they do it.
So, with that in mind, let’s find out who is the best character in Mario Strikers Battle League that you need in your team.
Let’s get our nerd on, shall we?
Who Is The Strongest Character In Mario Strikers Battle League?
Bowser is the strongest character in Mario Strikers Battle League. But then again, I guess you already knew that, seen as though he’s the largest Nintendo character ever!
We all know that Bowser isn’t the fastest character on the pitch, but he’s still got a burst of speed about him when it comes to tackling players and knocking them not just off the ball, but almost completely off the pitch.
Bowser’s charge tackle is fantastic. He’s the only person I’d want defending my goal, spinning even bulky characters like DK into the dust.
Weirdly, however, Bowser’s got a pretty good scoring foot to say that he’s so heavy.
All that power behind the ball means you’ve got a good chance of hitting the back of the net if you can pull off a tackle in your opponents half.
Who Is The Fastest Character In Mario Strikers Battle League?
If you value speed over skill, then Toad and Peach are the speediest players in Mario Strikers Battle League.
Peach is fast in this game; I much prefer having her on my team rather than going up against her. She’s one of the only characters my kick-off tackle move proves hit and miss on, and she usually fires a shot that the goalie has to jump for right after the whistle blows.
Toad is a little nifty character too, weaving around slower players and passing perfectly between his teammates.
If you come up against a team with multiple toads in it, then you’re going to have your work cut out for you!
Who Is The Best Striker In Mario Strikers Battle League?
Bowser, Yoshi, and Rosalina are the best strikers in Mario Strikers Battle League!
Yep, Bowser’s made two sections in this list so far. The guy’s got a serious kick on him, and if you hit that hyper strike right, the goalie will be left rolling on the floor trying to put out the fireball that’s just engulfed the net!
Yoshi and Rosalina have the same shooting stats as Bowser, putting them all at joint best when it comes to hoofing the ball into the goal.
It would be tempting to have three strikers in your group, but check out my article on how to pick the best team in Mario Strikers Battle League to discover a team that covers all bases.
Which Mario Strikers Battle League Character Is The Best At Hyper Strikes?
Luigi is the best character at performing hyper strikes in Mario Strikers Battle League, with the widest blue power bar areas of all the players.
Just look at that whirlwind! One of the things I love the most about Luigi’s hyper strike is that it picks up other players in its path, dazing them and keeping them down momentarily if the ball does fail to make it past the goalkeeper.
Of course, you need to make sure that you have enough space to pull off a hyper strike without another opposing player tackling you. But, if you can get the space and have the time, Luigi won’t let you down.
Who Is The Best Character In Mario Strikers Battle League?
The results are in; Luigi is the best character in Mario Strikers Battle League.
The guy has everything you need; speed, technique, good passing. He’s a nice allrounder with some impressive stats and skills that make him a great team player, just like Yoshi.
And let’s face it, Luigi owns the soccer look better than Mazza. The man’s a natural!
For me, it’s all about that technique bar. Luigi can curl the ball sweetly into the net and is the easiest to do a hyper strike with.
Groove on down, Luigi, you’ve earned your time in the limelight!
And that’s a wrap!
Thanks for checking out our article on who is the best character in Mario Strikers Battle League. Hopefully you’ve learned a lot more about the characters and who is the best in each field.
