New Characters Discussion

Throughout the decades we had the veterans and then we had new characters introduced into MP3. Daisy and Walluigi were the first two new characters ever in the series. Then every Mario Party (with exclusions) introduced 1-2 new characters. So what new characters would you like to see,personally I wouldn't mind E Gadd or as most fans want Rosalina to join the party. You can post as many ideas as you want!
 
With the recent release of Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon I can see E Gadd as a host or even playable character. A bigger role than a board character like in Mario Party 6. I know plenty would love to see Rosalina in a Mario Party, I wouldn't mind. Metal Mario should be added to upset fans and if he had some sort of cloning story, he wouldn't be too bad of a character. The only thing I like about him so far is his funny sounding voice. I would love to see the ghosts in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon appear on some sort of ghostly board. Along with Boos of course :kingboo:
 
The Koopalings should be in the next game for sure. Metal Mario should as I find his voice hilarious. Professor E Gadd should be in the next Mario Party because of his major role in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon/2. The babies, I highly doubt they will appear in a Mario Party because they would of by now and I'm not really a big fan of them.
 
SZ: We don't need three different character discussion topics so they are all merged. The fourth topic was changed to characters that are returning only. When you guys make a new topic, please check if that topic already exists. And if you make a poll, please leave the results set at zero. It's not much of a poll if you change that...

Anyway, the Mario series lacks a good variety of human characters, so I always look at characters like Rosalina before anyone else. Do you guys think there is a size limit for playable characters? I'm thinking in terms of adding characters like Petey Pirahna or something small like a Mouser.

I personally don't really take the human characters into consideration much because I mostly like when the said character look more like a kind of creature or something. I am not really tempted when I do see these, so yeah I am mostly toward generics characters we most likely see most of the time that makes some games interesting, character-wise and gameplay-wise. I woudln't be that much on the games if it wouldn't be with these said characters. Basically, the main characters aren't really my favorites, these are most likely ennemies, it's intereting to play a little bit with characters who aren't always considered as "heroes".
 
I don't think characters like Petey or a Mouser mainly because of their size. I just don't see how it would work out. They could scale Petey down as they done that before, he would work. Very small characters would have to be in a large suit or something. The smallest I've seen playable was Toad  :toad:

We are lacking in Humans a little.

I wouldn't be surprised if they made a new human female out of nowhere. Rosalina will most likely join if they had to pick. I'd do like to see Plum and maybe Maple from Mario Golf 64 return.

As unlikely as that sounds, they should bring back the female humans from the sports games such as Plum. They could even create a new female human that wears something like overalls and she could start Mario Party exclusive and eventually appear in the main games. She could be the brothers' cousin and have a name like Maria.

As far as the human characters go, I think that finding characters who are not redundant in character type is actually the most important feature in adding new human characters.

So far we have:

Mario - World famous hero, yet he's also the everyman character. ;P
Luigi - Somewhat awkward and cowardly brother living in the shadow of the hero.
Peach- The Princess who's kind and dainty appearance hides an adventurous side.
Daisy- The Princess's BFF, she's loud, energetic, and a bit of a tomboy.
Wario- Greedy and gross, he's the enterprising rival of the hero.
Waluigi- A sore loser and a proud cheater, he's more of a follower than his own man.

So with that in mind, I actually think these three characters fit in nicely, without overlapping with any of the already established humans.

E. Gadd - fits the "nutty professor" character type that the cast doesn't already have, he'd be totally unique among the cast. In fact, I could see E. Gadd being set up in a rivalry with Kamek, Science vs. Magic if you will. :p

Rosalina - Another Princess, yes, however her character type is more of the Fairy Godmother/Glinda the Good Witch mixed with a space Alien. If the Mario cast were allowed more lines, I'm sure we'd find her comically aloof concerning many "Earthling" social behaviours.(But when it comes to surviving a super nova, she's your gal ;P)

Captain Syrup - fills the mischievous bad girl character type that is absent. Plus I think she'd make an interesting rival to Peach(Pirates vs. Princesses), while a good reluctant ally to the Wario Bros.(Yes especially with their mutual past ;P)

I think there is a bit of a limit, especially in Mario Party, but I am not opposed to shrinking Petey ever so slightly, since I think he has a wonderfully unique character design and I'd love to see him playable more often. Mouser could easily just be based off his Super Mario Bros. 2 appearance and fit in just fine.
 
I personally think the cast they have in all previous games, with the exception of DK because he would keep his role, would really make it awesome. Reskins would add something fresh to the series like Toadette said, maybe Toad reskins, or various Power-Up versions of characters like the Fire Flower or Super Acorn.

How would the Koopalings make sense in Mario Party? I'd like to see them, but that's kinda iffy with that idea. Perhaps they each control a board or something?
 
I would like to see a two new girl's that is not a princess, and she can be playable. I would like to see how would the kongs be integrated in this game, maybe let Cranky Kong be the host of the DK board or let Funky Kong be the item shop owner, while Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong could interact with board somehow. Tiny Kong and Dixie Kong could be playable since DK will be managing his own board plus two new female character. 8)
