    var characters = new string[]
    {
        "Mario",
        "Princess Peach",
        "Bowser",

You have the right structure, but the wrong names.

The challenge said to "Name your loop value variable character.", but you used "characters" (plural) instead. Also, "characters" is the name of the list provided for you by the challenge that you should be drawing from (instead of "new list").
