Waluigi appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as an Assist Trophy. Once summoned, Waluigi will beat the opponent into the ground with his strong leg and then send them flying with a tennis racket. There is also a soundtrack of his theme song, Waluigi Pinball.

Trophy DescriptionEdit

A twig-thin man who sees himself as Luigi's Ultimate rival. He spent a long time working in the shadow of Mario Bros. before finally becoming strong enough to compete with them in Mario Tennis. Since then he's had many brilliant game appearances. While the nature of his relationship with Wario is a mystery, the pair have hatched some devious schemes together.

As a StickerEdit

Waluigi also appears as two stickers. One uses his artwork from Mario Superstar Baseball, and the other one uses his artwork from Super Mario Strikers.

Alternate costumeEdit

Luigi has an alternate costume similar to Waluigi's. This is the closest thing to Waluigi being a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Template:Clear

Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games Edit

Waluigi appeared again in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. He's appeared to have befriended a newcomer, Metal Sonic and was still friends with Eggman. The three of them were seen hatching a plan in the opening of Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. Waluigi also faces Sonic, Mario and friends in the DS Adventure Tours with Wario, but later joins them to attack them when they are off-guard. He helps take down a Flapper with Bob-Bombs and discover a secret passage.

Waluigi loves to compete against Luigi and is known to be a bit of a cheat and leads the rivals around the nose. His skill-based abilities will translate well to events like Shooting.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii UEdit

Waluigi reprises his role as an Assist Trophy and Trophy from Brawl, and functions nearly the same as he did in that game.

Rivalry with EggmanEdit

Waluigi is shown to have a competitive rivalry with Eggman as seen in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games and Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games since they were competing against each other in their Final Missions. Despite this rivalry, Waluigi and Eggman are shown to have a close relationship.

Memorable QuotesEdit

Trivia Edit

  • Waluigi's colors are Luigi's colors inverted.
  • According to Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Waluigi and Wario are not related, but actually just friends.
