Each character has it’s own advantages and disadvantages. Mario is an all-round, easy to control character but he has no special abilities. Luigi has the ability to jump higher than any other character but he sprints slowly and has low traction. Princess Peach can hover in midair for a short time and can sprint earlier, but runs significantly slower than other characters. Toad is the fastest character in the game but suffers a terrible jump due to his small stature. Rosalina has a spin attack and a high jump but runs slow and loses her spin attack when she acquires a power-up.

Character Speed Jump

Luigi 2/3 3/3
