We all know that Luigi has always been overshadowed by his fraternal twin brother, Mario. We hardly know much about this taller and greener brother. Except for the fact that his colorful nature works wonders for the creations that we want to do with our coloring pages.

Luigi happens to be the quiet brother who has a lot of interesting secrets that we can still discover. We should take our time to learn more about Luigi beyond the fact that he wasn’t the initial star of the game. Let’s keep on reading to find out more.
He’s Green for a Reason
I doubt that I’m the only one who enjoys characters that are as bright as our favorite Luigi in our coloring pages. The thing about his green color is that it was chosen for a particular reason. The main reason is memory limitation from early versions of the game. According to the creators of this fascinating game, he had to look exactly like Mario, his fraternal twin.
Even though there were developments in the game after some time, the initial memory limitations made it difficult to change his green color. Moreover, his color palette resembled the one that the creators used for the enemy groups in the game.
He’s Employed by Castle Dracula
I was surprised when I learned that one of our favorite brothers from this franchise took the wrong job. There are various sources that hint that Luigi worked as a plumber for Castle Dracula. Even though this wasn’t a good career move for him, there are some good things that came out of the game for him. He can fight while he’s within the castle. This hopefully provides a better ending for him.
He Advanced as a Character in Super Mario Bros. 2
In the first game, Mario was the only one who was a main character. However, all of this changed in the second and updated version of the game. Not only did Luigi evolve from being Mario’s palette swap, but he was also able to become a playable character as well. In this game, we can see that Luigi has more to offer. For instance, he can jump higher than we know him to. Plus, he can hover a little.
Another interesting change that we get to see in our coloring pages is Luigi’s physical appearance. He appeared to be distinguishably taller than his brother. And he was leaner when we compared the two brothers. These have since become the main features to showcase Luigi’s character.
He Can Turn into a Kitsune
This is a very interesting fact because it also teaches us a bit about Japanese mythology. In Japan where both brothers were created, there are certain beliefs that focus on magic. There are different types of spirit animals that we can learn about. The most notable one that Luigi can turn into is called a Kitsune. This is a spiritual fox that has magical powers such as transforming into human form. In addition, it usually has nine tails. So, when we see Luigi turned into a fox in our coloring pages, we shouldn’t worry about it.
His Mansion is Haunted
As if living in Castle Dracula wasn’t enough. Luigi won a mansion that turned out to be haunted. But this didn’t stop the brave plumber from living in his mansion. In fact, while living in his mansion, he discovered that his brother had been captured by one of their many nemeses in a nearby forest. Naturally, he ventures into the unknown to ensure that he can save his brother from any potential dangers.
