While he is often sidelined and has to play second fiddle to his more popular brother, Mario, but Luigi is an important and popular character in himself. He was designed as a different version of Mario, however Luigi has created an identity of his own. In fact, apart from the distinctive green dress as compared to Mario’s red, Luigi is taller and thinner than Mario and hence the two are hardly mistaken for each other now. He is a better jumper than his more famous brother and his overall talents have enabled him to get out of tricky spots more than once. He can jump higher and farther than Mario, but this ability has come at the cost of movement response and precision. Luigi is a shy and timid character and extremely afraid of ghosts.
