Luigi is Mario's younger, taller, and slightly thinner twin brother. Luigi has assisted and fought alongside his brother on many occasions. Throughout his life, he has lived in Mario's shadow, developing both cowardly and heroic tendencies. Mario Bros. marks his first appearance in the Mario series and his debut in general. Originally a palette swap of Mario, Luigi was created to facilitate a second player option. Since the two player mode was dropped from most main Super Mario games beginning with Super Mario Land, Luigi had gained his own identity and personality.
In M.U.G.E.N, the two most commonly used versions of Luigi are ShinRyoga's and Warner's versions. These two are also the most commonly edited versions. He's one of the many characters that have been created many times.
This version of Luigi is a near identical clone of ShinRyoga and NeOaNkH's Mario, with the only differences being the obvious palette rearrangements, different sounds and slightly taller sprites; unfortunately, said sprites were scaled vertically rather than redone, which gives the character a somewhat distorted appearance.
This plumber in green uses a smaller version of Luigi as a base, so it should come as no surprise that he has various things in common with said character. Luigi's moveset tries to mimic that of the Super Smash Bros. series, such as replacing M.U.G.E.N's standard blocking with a temporary shield and having highly damaging moves that send opponents flying long distances, though it's fortunate that these moves are easily punishable.
This Luigi is relatively overpowered. He may be a shotoclone, as he has a Shin Shoryuken. Unlike the others, he also uses items from the game, like the hammer and a Koopa Shell. When he does Negative Zone, he can cause the opponent to glitch out, and it's unblockable. Fortunately, his A.I. is less brutal than the creator's Mario character, but he will spam the cheap Negative Zone attack at full Power.
