Super Mario Run Guide: How to Unlock All Characters

Check this guide to find out how to unlock all the characters in Super Mario Run!

Super Mario Run lets you play as Mario initially, but there are multiple character you can play as after you unlock them. Most are easy to unlock, though time consuming. This is especially true if you don't know how to unlock them in the first place.

I'm going to go over how to unlock all the characters in Super Mario Run, as well as the abilities each character gets.

How to Unlock All Characters

Every character except Toad and Peach can be unlocked by placing specific buildings. You must have a certain number of Toads for each building. Not any Toad will do, each requires specific colors.

You can collect these Toads by winning games in Toad Rally.

  • For the different colored ones, check the opponent before selecting them.
  • It will show you which colored Toads will be available after winning.
  • Pick an opponent that has your desired colored Toad, and repeat until you collect enough.
