Because they realized she's more visually distinct than yellow/blue Toads and she rose to prominence in Captain Toad

That said, she's not better than Peach so I'm a bit disappointed myself

But Waluigi is in all the spin off games Toadette is in as well. They're not going to put Waluigi in Captain Toad or Mario Odyssey. Also, Toadette is better. She doesn't wear any pants.

Peach's dress and personality means she has gimmick roles only. Meanwhile Toadette can do both the play normally and floating bullshit styles.

CAN I USE TOADETTE IN SINGLE PLAYER MODE?

THIS IS IMPORTANT!
>>
>>462294403
Both her and Isabelle got popular last gen. They're "shilling" both about equally. And it makes perfect sense, because she's a female representative for the entire Toadstool race. Which Toadstools needed more reps besides just colored Toad.

They're Toad pants, they might seem like underwear or even diapers, but they're actually just very short pants.

You homofags already ruin enough threads, don't start hating on Toadette now.
>>
>>462294795
In Mario Kart 8 and some other games, she's literally not wearing pants. It's just the white bulb at the end of her mushroom torso. In Captain Toad, she does wear pants. A kind of Safari gear.
>>
>>462292379
I'm more angry about her replacing Peach. And being shoved in as a forced baby mode in Mario U.
>>
>>462294123
They probably want to be lazy and have Peach be kidnapped for the course world like in Mario Maker 1.

Toadette is much easier to program than Waluigi since her size and physics are nearly identical to Toad's. Waluigi is a whole different type of animal: lankier and taller than Luigi with none of Luigi's jumping ability.
>>
>>462294123
Toadette can use Toad and Peach abilities
>>
>>462297574
That doesn't matter to the human audience, who sees Toadette as female. Also, there's some games where Toads are fawning over her as being beautiful. The real answer to all this Mario lore is they just make shit up as they go along, so sometimes she is a girl.

I've grown a strange appreciation for the "girly-girl" character type, so I find Toadette far more charming than I did in the past. It's not like she's annoying or anything, which is nice.
Captain Toad sold me on the little fungi in general. That game is downright precious.
>>
>>462295054
Wario is internally considered a low rank character by Nintendo. They're biased towards EAD (now EPD) creations. He's not even a Switch profile icon, but the entire ARMS cast including the DLC is there. Waluigi is the lowest of the low because he's not even from a Nintendo-developed game and he's the counterpart to a R&D1 character.

The anime says that Mario lives in the real world and works at a grocery store and the Mushroom Kingdom is in a video game.

Which is why many games end with curtains.

>>462300959
SMB3 is the only one that does and that's a play, not a video game. It also doesn't imply in any way that Mario lives in the real world either.

She's Toad Luigi that's why. Just like back in the day with Luigi all they have to do is take another character and edit them slightly. That's the entire reason. That and so girls can have someone to play as.

They didn't stop. She's still in Mario Kart and Smash Bros as much as she used to be. If anything, Toadette and Isabelle are getting more than she ever did at the height of her popularity.

>>462305960
Getting in Smash (a choice that was made BEFORE 3D World) was a pretty big deal
>>
Honestly after the bowsette shit, she deserves her spotlight back.
>>
>>462306147
We're talking in the context of Mario games, they don't shill her in Mario games more than any other character, because she was only playable in one game as a bonus character. She doesn't fit the archetype they look for a regular playable character because she's too unique to fit into the "another Mario" role that Luigi, Toad, and Toadette do.

That uniqueness is WHY she got in Smash, because unlike other Mario characters she had space goddess powers and Lumas which made her a very different character from any other Mario character.
>>
>>462306147
Rosalina was stupid popular and Mario didn't exactly invent a lot of new reoccurring characters in the Wii era.

SNES gen gave us

>Waluigi (not significant, but still he's kind of the fourth bro)

GNC gave us
>E.Gadd
>Toadsworth
>Flood
>Bowser Jr.
>Toadette
>King Boo

Wii gave us
>Rosalina

Wii U gave us
>No one

You're right. Now they've even gone back and started calling Pauline a Mario character.
>>
>>462294123
If you use Peach there's always going to be this expectation that she'll have her floating ability.
On the other hand, you can make Toadette play just like Mario and friends and nobody will bat an eye.
Plus dress physics lol

Nabbit and I guess the Sprixies from 3D World?
>>
>>462308602
Sprixies are as important as the other monarchs from SMB3 and Piantas.
>>
>>462308128
Bowser, Toad, and Peach didn't exist until NES.
Pauline IS a Mario character, it might have been called Donkey Kong but the game was a Mario game. She was also in DK94 and all the Mario vs Donkey Kong games.
>>
>>462295054
Wario is officially the funny farting minigame man now.
>>
>>462308128
Wii U gave us Sprixies I guess.
It's not much but really neither is fucking F.L.U.U.D.
Also worth mentioning that three of those GCN characters came from a spin-off title staring Luigi rather than Mario, so it makes sense that they introduced an entirely new cast for that specific game.
Also shouldn't Bowser, Toad and Peach be NES era?

Good points. Metal Mario isn't super important though. I was mostly counting the characters who appear in main series games or are heavily recurring. I left out characters Like Petey and Metal Mario because they don't really live up to King Boo or the Koopalings.

>>462308716
I wouldn't say the Sprixies are that important. Piantas have been WAY more reoccurring at this point and they're practically the used for the same purpose. By which I mean they're just someone for Mario to help (at first).

I can't find an actual date for the arcade cabinets, so I have no choice but to take your word for it. Other than that Captain America is my favorite x-men character.

You don't fight Toads, silly. Closest is Captain Goomba from the Mario and Luigi remakes, and even then he simply ends up in evil vs evil situations.

Rosalina was never even shilled that hard outside of being unlockable in 3D World. She barely made it to Mario Kart Wii and wasn't even in the sequel to her own game, at least not in a meaningful way.

>>462308403
Metal Mario originated from Mario 64. Metal Mario as an entity originated from Smash. Metal Mario as a separate entity from Mario in the Mario series originated in Mario Kart 7 on the 3DS.

Captain Toad and Waddle Dee aren't comparable. Captain Toad has his own series and spinoff mode in a mainline game. Neither of which any Waddle Dee does. Go back to Smash threads autist.

Oh yeah there was that too. Well the point still stands with Metal Mario having nothing to do with the Wii U.
