Wario is a contraction of Mario and the Japanese 悪い (warui), which means bad or wrong. Likewise Luigi becomes Waluigi, which in Japanese would be pronounced more or less as Waruigi.
Ah, so it's a Japanese-language thing.

Also, if going by your scheme
Not to be the "well, ackshually" guy, but M and L are mirrored while P is rotated.

If you're thinking she doesn't really look like evil Peach, then you're right, she doesn't. She's inspired by Doronjo from Yatterman, much like Waluigi is a riff on the green guy. Word is that Nintendo wanted to avoid similarities.
That didn't stop Capcom from copying all three in God Hand. The Three Stooges/Conchita Gang.



Keep in mind, this was before they got the Tatsunoko license. BTW, I still have the Wii version. Excellent game.

Hey, guess what, it's the last month of the year. That means its time for the 'top 10 whatevers of the year' listicles to emerge from their plague slumber.

I was a bit surprised by this review because on streams he's been talking the game up a lot and while the review is still positive he called the puzzles just ok- in a puzzle game. Goes to show how far atmosphere and style goes in one's impression of a game, something I think about when I like games that don't impress others.
