Mario Party 9 Characters [Speculation]


Through various screenshots and videos, we see a number of characters shown in some form. Whether a character is playable or not is up for debate, but here is our list of playable characters.

Playable Characters



  • Mario
  • Luigi
  • Peach
  • Yoshi
  • Wario
  • Waluigi
  • Daisy
  • Toad
  • Koopa (New!)
  • Shy Guy (New!)
  • Birdo

Non Playable Characters


  • Bowser Jr.
  • Dry Bones

Bowser Jr. seems to be a boss or his own mini-game. He has his own health meter and sports his own clown car while the other players have standard ones. It can also be noted that this could in fact have been a 1-VS.-3 Mini-Game where a single player was eliminated.

It is clear that Dry Bones is not playable in the screens above. There are already four players in the mini-game and there are multiple Dry Bones. They seem to serve as obstacles that get in your way.



Mario Party 9 is set to have Boss Battles where all four players fight together to defeat a common enemy. So far we have five different bosses. Both Whomp and Big Bob-omb will be a boss or a mini-boss in the board Bob-omb Factory. Blooper is also set to be a boss. Lakitu and and a giant Chain Chomp have also been seen in mini-games that appear to be boss battles.

  • Lakitu
  • Wiggler
  • Whomp
  • Big Bob-omb
  • Blooper
  • Chain Chomp
  • King Boo
  • Bowser


Both Bowser and King Boo have been confirmed to be bosses, but we have yet to see any images.
