Waluigi is the gangly, purple-clad poster child of Mario sports and party spinoffs, with his non-cameo appearances restricted entirely to those games. His playable roles are usually in tandem with Wario, yet is nary to be seen in games where Wario has the spotlight. His name is a combination of "Wario", "Luigi", and the Japanese word warui, which means "bad" or "evil". So pretty much, he's an evil version of Luigi, and unlike Wario, has never developed any character beyond that. He's nevertheless achieved a cult status of sorts, helped in part by his eccentric, WAA-uttering portrayal in the Nintendo webcomic Brawl in the Family.
