Who is Fawful?[]

Fawful is a major recurring character from the Mario & Luigi RPG series. In Superstar Saga, he plays the role of the sidekick to the big bad, but was more popular due to his quirky speech habits. He also made a cameo running a bean shop in Partners in Time. In Bowser's Inside Story, Fawful's fury truly emerged, taking the role of main villain and very nearly managing to take over Mushroom Kingdom before the combines forces of Mario, Luigi and Bowser took him down.

Contest History[]

Win-Loss Record: 0-2

Winter 2010 Contest - Chaos Division - 11 Seed

  • Chaos Division Round 1 --- Lost to (6) GLaDOS, 19590 [33.22%] - 39381 [66.78%]
  • Extrapolated Strength --- 127th [11.35%]

Even though he was coming off of his biggest role yet, the Mario & Luigi games are not a major force, so Fawful wasn't expected to do much, especially against the Portal fanbase. Unsurprisingly, GLaDOS managed to pull off the doubling and a bit more, almost making Fawful look like the weakest character in the field.

Summer 2013 Contest - Division 8 - 27 Seed

  • Division 8 Round 1 --- 3rd place, 3110 [10.41%] - (1) Mario, 20759 [69.47%] - (18) Duke Nukem, 6011 [20.12%]

Given how weak he showed to be in 2010 and Mario, one of his worst opponents was in the match Fawful was not crushed as badly as we thought. He still was one of the weakest characters in the bracket, but considering how well he held up against SFF this can be considered a minor victory.
