Da Nintendude : Allow me, a Waluigi fan, to explain why i love Waluigi. First of all, I'm throwing what I just said out of the window. Forget I said I'm a Waluigi fan. I'm most likely not like the majority of Waluigi fans at all. My love for Waluigi's character started when I was young. When I was a kid, Wario & Waluigi were my favorite Mario characters. It eventually turned into just Wario, but I still very much liked Waluigi. I always thought Waluigi was really cool. He and Wario were great characters and I came up with many ideas for games featuring the two. But how exactly did I grow to like him as much as I do now? We'll have to look at my childhood for that. Contrary what I said earlier, Yoshi was actually my original favorite Mario character. It was like this for a long time, but it eventually changed. I'd likely pinpoint that time to when I was 6 years old, and I got Super Mario 64 DS. In the game, you start as Yoshi. I was super happy about that... I loved Yoshi. When I eventually unlocked Wario, I wondered... "where is Waluigi?". This started a long mission. A mission to find Waluigi once and for all. For years me, and my friend (let's call him Brad) searched for Waluigi. We looked at all the clues. It started with the stuff we could find... The white door, the purple bunny in the manual... and then it shifted to the internet with the Black Box on the file select. Brad moved away in 3rd Grade, but our search for Waluigi didn't end. We spoke on the phone for hours every now and then, talking about our search for Waluigi. Talking about the internet rumors we found. It brought me to the L is Real 2401 mystery, and so much more. One day I was writing down all the comparisons from the White Door, and Waluigi. Comparing the location of the door, Waluigi's connection to Boos, etc. Not too long afterwards I discovered WwwWario, and his Full Analysis on Waluigi in Mario 64 DS. It opened my eyes. Waluigi wasn't in plain sight. He was hidden behind very complicated and extreme measures. I truly believed that the Arceus2401 mystery was real. I called Brad for the first time in a while, and told him about the video. This sparked our imaginations even more, and the hunt for Waluigi continued. This long trek endured until late 2013. I remember a vacation me and my family went on, where we stayed with some people my dad knew, and me and a kid a few years younger than me continued to look for Waluigi together, and solve L is Real in general. A month or 2 later, WwwWario made a video that explained that the Arceus2401 idea was most likely faked, and Waluigi definitely wasn't in Super Mario 64 DS. I was upset for awhile, and accepted my fate, but looking back at it... it's one of my favorite memories. An experience I probably will never have with any other game. Waluigi symbolized my childhood, and the never-ending mystery and search that brought me and Brad together. I haven't talked to Brad in years, but whenever I think about him, I think about our times trying to crack the code. It was probably around 2014 that I started to really like Waluigi. I was aware of some of the memes about Waluigi, mainly the "Carol of Waa" from BitF's YouTube channel. Despite the memes I had seen, Waluigi wasn't a meme character to me. In my mind, he was a misunderstood, sad, yet cool dude. He was insecure, and always lost. He just wanted to win. I longed for a Waluigi game, and even made a very complicated, likely overly-dark game idea & story for him. I posted that I wanted a Waluigi game to the 2014 E3 community on Miiverse, and someone responded, saying Waluigi was gross and stupid, and didn't deserve a game. With his complaints in mind, I formed the story, and it still exists in my mind to this day. I won't get into the story here, but it explains Waluigi's insecurities... why he feels like everyone is cheating, and it originally explained why he was so skinny and "ugly" (but I have since scrapped that idea). This is about the time that I really started wanting Waluigi representation. I saw him as a genuinely interesting character, and saw that he was the only of the 4 Mario "bros" that hadn't gotten a game yet. Fast Forward to about 2016 or 2017. I started seeing more Waluigi memes. Being a Waluigi fan, I enjoyed them, and found them fairly good. As time went on, I saw more memes, but overall, it didn't really change my view on Waluigi. I still liked him for his character, not for the memes. Back in 2014 when Waluigi was shown as an assist trophy, I was upset, but not too bummed. I never expected him to ever make it into Smash in the first place. Zoom to 2018, around E3, I was a bit upset about all the attention Waluigi was getting from Mario Tennis Aces, because all his attention was mostly memey stuff. But I saw him as genuinely having a chance of making it into Ultimate. He was much more popular than he was around Smash 4, and I had realized his potential as being a representative of the Mario Sports and spin-offs... Utilizing Party Dice, Karts, Tennis & Golf, etc. Then I saw him as an Assist Trophy in Ultimate. Here is exactly what I said when I saw him "Ha ha.... deconfirmed... that's sad." I was laughing because so many people expected him to get in. I saw a chance, but I still never expected him to show up. I was mostly joking around... I didn't realize people were so serious about Waluigi getting into it. The "that's sad" was in reference to myself.... Because of the part of me that wanted to see him in. Then came the storm. Everyone was upset that Waluigi wasn't in. What was originally amusement turned into anger. I learned that most Waluigi fans like him only because of his meme potential, and I feel like a lot of people who started to expect him only wanted him in because they enjoy Waluigi memes. I started to have a tough time finding people who liked Waluigi for who he was, and not for his memes. Now, everything I see about Waluigi is a meme. I rarely see any actual appreciation. Then the whole "harrassment" thing happened. Supposedly it was only 2 people making very offensive jokes, but it led to everyone getting really mad at Waluigi fans. I saw so many people say they hoped Waluigi would never be in Smash because of how terrible they are... I felt so isolated... Of course, Waluigi support continues, and I see memes or jokes about him not getting into Smash Daily. I also see people who think he actually has a chance of getting in as a playable fighter. Let me finish this off by saying... I am ashamed of what Waluigi has become. I love Waluigi as a character. Although I enjoy the memes, they have gotten out of control, and I don't like them anymore. Like most memes, they grow stale to me after I see them everywhere. Although I am trying to respect the mainly meme-loving portion of the Waluigi fanbase, I still love him for who he is, and what impact he has had on my life. Waluigi never wins, he is sad, but he is also cool, confident, and funny. Him and Wario are still my favorite Mario Characters. Although I like Wario more, Waluigi really needs to star in his own game sometime. Waluigi symbolizes my childhood, and is a big part of my memories. Live on Waluigi.

2017-2018'Charle Weeb brown 2017-2018 シャルル・ブラウン : Walugi is God

Pixel Game Squad : Great video! Really made us feel even more bad for Waluigi :(

UMEKO : A Waluigi centered game where you have to cheat to win sounds like an interesting concept actually

Fnaf lover 68 : Waluigi deserves to be in smash

NSan : These are MANLY TEARS!

Ryu Murasora : The only man behind the Waluigi movement is Waluigi himself

Barry Bat : Jesus was also hated when he was around

Yoshi HD : i wanted waluigi since brawl. i havent been asking him for the memes, i want him because he needs to be in it, despite this i didnt harass sakurai bc im not an asshole.

Földi Viktória : Waluigi = bayonetta echo

Henriko Magnifico : Waluigi is like a more extreme version of Wario, therefor he's more popular than Wario. He is, in fact, the true opponent to Mario's popularity (same how Luigi is more popular than Mario)

Strange man behind the CVS : I think the fact that waluigi was the person that started a waluigi movement is too perfect

Ejetic : It really is sad, the only person that believed in waluigi back then was himself

smoothmedia : If this isn't the most viewed video on YouTube it's only because everybody else cheated. Waa

mrm64 : You honestly touched my heart with this video. Sadly, people have been labeling every fan of Walugi a keyboard warrior who harasses Sakurai on a daily basis. Clearly it is untrue, as you can see from the people you met. Waluigi really does represent the underdog.

𝐁𝐚𝐭𝐝𝐨𝐠𝐝𝐮𝐤𝐞 : Just before SSBU is released, a video will be posted on Nintendo’s YouTube page. The thumbnail will be a black background, with a purple flame. The title of the video will be called, “Stealing the spotlight” The video will begin with a normal game of Smash Bros, but it will be animated, Mario, Luigi, and Wario will all be fighting. Mario and Luigi will team up after Wario taunts them. Wario, after being almost knocked off of the stage, watches as the brothers walk towards him, ready to knock him out of the stage. Then, all of a sudden, an assist trophy will fall from the sky. Wario will reach for the assist trophy, only to be stopped Mario. Luigi grabs the assist trophy and releases the character. Waluigi pops out, begrudgingly ready to fight. He then looks around and sees Wario, on the ground, laughing, as are Mario and Luigi. Waluigi begins to feel hopeless, as he feels as if he’ll never get his chance. But then, a spark. Waluigi looks up at the laughing brothers. They look at Wario and point, signifying what they want Waluigi to do. Waluigi looks at Wario, then back at the brothers. He does this three times, and walks over the the brothers, with an angry expression on his face. His hand grips his tennis racket, and clenches his grip. Mario is still laughing, but Luigi is slightly concerned. Waluigi pulls back in a quick and fluid motion, and swings at Mario. Mario, caught off guard, is sent flying off the stage. Wario and Luigi watch as Waluigi stands alone. Waluigi turns, and with a tennis ball in hand, throws it in the air, and rockets it towards the screen. *Waluigi steals the spotlight!*

MrTerminator3010 : So the voice of the movement, is the voice of Waluigi? That.... actually makes sense.

The Real Delphox 616 : Waluigi making Waluigi popular to begin with is the most Waluigi thing I heard.

MLG NIC117 : When people started hating waluigi, they awoke the sleeping giant, the waluigi fan base

Leviathan TQ : Very touching and well made.

Jam-frog35 : You basically sum it up the reason why I liked Waluigi

Universal Sketch : Waluigi should be the last new character and his reveal would be him crashing the party right before release it would be very fitting for his character and almost a callback to his first appearance in Mario tennis

Cpt Charisma : This was like a straight up documentary, you should make more vidoes in this style.

Blue Pun : 8:26 "but then~" the fire nation attac- "I thought about it a little more" oh I guess not

Peter Duprey : Waluigi should get a pinball game on mobile

Pricilla Tamayo : #letwaluigismash #justiceforwaluigi

Nintendoguy21 : i just wanted to say this but it was actually like 3 people who harassed sakurai great video btw

MR WAH : BRAVO MY FRIEND. BRAVO

Furry AwsomParodyz : I feel bad for the guy that was attacked because his opinion of Waluigi... ahead of his time man. also good video 10/10

Sneaky Goomba Gamer : That ending made me cry, Waluigi os someone who wanted to feel appreciated, and I'm glad you can see that now. Waluigi never has gotten the chance to shine, and that is why I think we fans want him to get in Smash, has his own game, and etc. Thank you.

Abdul Abochamh : Waluigi represents part of me. the loser side that's why he is my favorite Nintendo character not the memes

Cubeman : all Sakurai did was delay his appearance cause like a clock with the force of time no matter what it will soon strike WALUIGI TIME

Squidzilla : So, what I gathered from this video is CHARLES MARTINET FOR SMASH. CHARLES MARTINET FOR SMASH.

Waluigi : Waluigi did nothing wrong for all those people Who Hate the Ultimate character Waluigi : your wrong and Waluigi is the best and should be in smash and also Waluigi has super powers he can flood the tennis court so please stop and he needs his own game and can make purple vines so... #stophatingonwaluigi

Tails Plays : I like Waluigi cuz I can relate

Nick Revetta : So that’s how it all started. This is where this whole thing came from. I just thought that brawl in the family or some meme God did this. But the voice of Waluigi himself... I never would have guessed. Great job dude

Erik L. : This is the kind of quality content that youtube needs more of. You definitely deserve more subscribers.

Teleporting TNT27 : I didn't know you were Shelock Holmes

Emerald_Erin : Bless, you. Bless, this. I like Waluigi because of the underdog story because I also sometimes think I'm a underdog.

Ethan Lam : Waluigi is like Shrek. They're both supposed to be ugly, but both are ironically referred to as "gods." That what makes it funny.

RubberDuck PRIME : Does anybody actually unironically like walui- Wait i just realized that if i finished that sentence i would get shot

Merarp : This video is a freaking masterpiece

All In The System : You Are The Most Underrated YouTuber On This Entire Website

Purple Popsicle : Top 10 anime plot twists nobody saw coming

Alfredo Rodriguez : Wow, that was an awesome video. I love when you went in depth with Waluigi at the end of the video. It was refreshing as opposed to all the memes of him. I’m all for a good meme but I do like a serious tone too

Kevin Robertson : This has a surprising amount of depth to it, great work dude.

Deathsoul24 : #WaluigiForLife

Titanium1208 : This video is a diamond in the rough. I've loved Waluigi ever since I used him in Mario Party 4 and every other spin off Mario game since and like many other people that enjoy his character he reminds me of myself in a way like being a loser that never lets losing get you out of trying. If he's in Smash by some divine way I'll scream so loud you'll be able to hear me in Japan if not I'll still enjoy the game for what it is which is amazing. Honestly I feel like Waluigi shouldn't be given too much crap considering theirs other memey characters already in Smash some that also had death threats as part of their request form *Ridley* Btw Ridley is awesome just saying. #justice4Waluigi

Dig Duke : I WILL TRY MY DAMNEDEST TO SPREAD THIS AROUND AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE THIS NEEDS TO BE SEEN BY THE WORLD!!! #JusticeForWaluigi
