You might not think about it much, considering half of them don’t get up to much athletic stuff in the main games, but the members of the Mario series cast are quite the bunch of athletes. They’re fast, they’re strong, they’re resilient, and above all, they all relish in an only slightly-brutal game of combat soccer. Here are all of the characters in Mario Strikers: Battle League.

Mario Strikers: Battle League: All Characters

The precise capabilities of every character in Mario Strikers: Battle League are determined by five stats:

  • Strength: How hard a character can tackle, and how resistant they are to being tackled themselves.
  • Speed: How quickly a character can run around the field.
  • Shooting: How hard and fast a character can shoot the ball. Higher shooting stats make shots harder for the goalie to block.
  • Passing: How quickly a character can pass the ball to a teammate, as well as how far they can shoot a Free Pass.
  • Technique: How cleanly a character can shoot and dribble the ball. Characters with higher technique can pull off more complicated, curved shots. Technique also affects how easily a character can launch a Hyper Strike.

Each character has a different blend of stats that determine their specializations, though you can also tweak their stats by changing the gear they have equipped.
