In Koopa mythology, Mario is both Satan and a specter of death, and him and Bowser are brothers. Luigi was a later Christian revision.

Peach was the earth spirit, a totem of fertility, torn eternally between Bowser (god, sun, creator) and Mario (devil, moon, destroyer)

Wario and Waluigi were from Koopa folk tradition, comic tricksters. Christian revisionism made them demons, analogous to Gog and Magog.
