About

Luigi Wins By Doing Absolutely Nothing refers to a series of YouTube videos in which Luigi beats different mini-games from the Nintendo series Mario Party[1] without moving as the CPU players lose due to poor AI.

Origin

Mario Party 2[2] was first released on the Nintendo 64[3] in North America on January 24th, 2000 and is the sequel to the original game[4] released on the same console in 1999. The game is set out like a board game, with players taking it in turns to move around the board and collect stars. After everyone has had 1 go, a random mini-game is selected with the winner receiving a coin bonus. It was these mini-games that were showcased in a video uploaded to YouTube by KlydeStorm[4] on October 11th, 2009. The video shows Luigi facing 3 CPUs of Mario, Peach and Wario, all set to easy. Luigi stands still while the CPUs defeat themselves.



Spread

The video received generally positive feedback, and soon appeared on sites like Memebase[5], Kotaku[6] and FunnyJunk.[7] It soon led others to make their own versions, using different other games that feature Luigi, such as the rest of the Mario Party series and Super Smash Bros, while others used games with characters other than Luigi. More recent examples include a July 8th, 2019 video by MarioZenium showing Rosalina as the subject of the videos, gaining over 2 million views (shown below, left) and a July 30th, 2018 video by DismArchus featuring Persona 4 characters, gaining over 469,000 views (shown below, right).
