Favorite and least favorite 'Mario _____' characters

Favorite characters from Mario Blank spinoffs. And the most hated ones. IE, Mario Kart, Mario Party, etc.

Waluigi is my absolute favorite, then Wario, then Bowser / Daisy.

I absolutely hate the Koopa Kids in Mario Kart 8. Besides Ludwig. Also Rosalina because her voice acting is terrible. And she seems like a gaudy space Peach. :p
Favorite: Waluigi, Peach, Luigi, Bowser, Wario, Dry Bowser

Least favorite: Daisy, Toad, Baby Daisy, Baby Rosalina, Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach

Beyond least favorite (AKA worst of the worst): Pink Gold Peach, Link, Villager, Isabelle (I don't hate the latter three as characters, they just have no place in Mario Kart)
Yeah baby Rosalina is even worse than regular Rosalina. And I wish they'd stop adding alt forms of characters as characters. With the DLC we now have four Marios and four Peaches...

Including all multiplayer spin-off rosters my favorite characters have been:

Petey Piranha - I find him really unique among the Mario cast and he also reminds me of one of my favorite musicals of all time(Little Shop of Horrors!) I'm sad he's been retired from playability.

Roy Koopa - I grew up with the Koopalings and I've always thought Roy was cool looking so now he's my go-to for Mario Kart 8 and Smash 4 when I choose the Clown Car.

Princess Peach - I've been a fan since Mario Bros. 2(she could float!) and so I would tend to pick her in the other spin-offs back in the day(especially Smash and Party). I still prefer her to the other Princess characters(though I like them too).

Shy Guy & Birdo - Mario Bros. 2 really is one of my favorite Mario games so any time a character from it is playable I tend to gravitate towards  picking them. Shy Guy is my favorite Mario enemy minion character while Birdo is one of my favorite series characters over-all and also my go-to in Mario Kart Wii.

Wiggler - One of my favorite Mario enemies (his temper tantrums are adorable!) so I've loved the few times he's been an option.

My least favorite characters have been:

Every character alt that gets treated as a separate character including Metal Mario, Dry Bower, Baby Peach, or any other power-up transformations of regular Mario characters - These have never appealed to me and probably never will. To me some of them make more sense as just unlockable skins but they are almost always their own character slots.

*New* Tiny Kong - Okay, so she was technically only in one Mario game (Super Sluggers) but her current look is ridiculous. She's not even tiny anymore!

Koopa Kid - More generic than any Koopaling and way less personality than Bowser Jr. it's Koopa Kid! Yeah i'm not surprised he's gone to be honest.
Favourites: Petey Piranha, Koopa Kid, Yoshi, DK, DK Jr., Diddy, Funky, Paratroopa, Pianta, King Boo, Shy Guy, Kamek, Spike, Boo, Koopa Troopa, Dry Bones, Blooper, Mario, Shadow Mario, Nabbit

Least Favourites: Any babies, Rosalina (the new voice actress takes away any "personality" from Galaxy), the Koopalings, Birdo, Pink Gold Peach, Honey Queen

Oh yes...
Nintendo's decision to make Rare redesign her for Diddy Kong Racing DS was terrible...
I liked the old Tiny Kong.
My favorite Mario character Rosalina cause reasons
My least favorite Micro goomba cause if more get on you, you can't jump
