Nintendo characters?! Now this one is going to be an interesting poll!

honey's anime character
There's just a massive amount of popular Nintendo characters. Just who will come out on top this time around? I'm hoping for either Yoshi or Donkey Kong!
honey's anime character
We all know Mario is going to take the cake on this one...right? RIGHT?!!
honey's anime character
It's hard to say to be honest. While Mario is certainly the shining star of the Nintendo roster, there's just so many wonderful characters that stand out more. Like Princess Peach for example, hehe!

I like really cute characters so I'm definitely rooting for Toadstool! Have fun voting everyone!

Top20 - Top11

20. Captain Olimar from Pikmin

0.6 %

Captain olimar has been a great character since his first appearance in the gamecube game pikmin. Since that fateful day in October he has appeared in two other titles as well as brawl and 3ds/wii U. This character holds a place in my heart because of his fatherly nature towards the pikmin, his journal entries show alot about him and his personality. The notes on the creatures of PNF-404 in the second release show his scientific background and the adventure and story recaps he tells on the treasures show alot about his family and his adventures on the planet unseen by the players camera view. Mixing all this with his appearance and his attitude make him memorable and loveable.
A pretty cool adventurer!

6. [Tied] Luigi from Mario Bros.

5.2 %


Overshadowed by his brother; Mario. He's cowardly but at the same time brave. I like how despite how scared he is. he always tries to help his brother and support him. And even saves him in Luigi's Mansion. I just love this green plummer.
Timid, meek, gentle, kind! These were the ingredients used to make a lovable green plumber. Unlike his older brother luigi is not accostumed to daring into the danger that follows into the path of rescuing princesses and fighting kings and beasts of all kinds. As seen in his secret diary entries in paper mario 64. But in his title of " Luigis Mansion " he braves the unknown depths of a haunted mansion to rescue his brother who is trapped inside.since his show of bravery he has paired again with E.gadd and fought his way trough mansions,mines,and factories. As well as tagging along with his older brother on his reckless adventures through the mushroom kingdom and beyond. His relateability compared to mario makes him a very unique and loved character.

6. [Tied] Samus Aran from Metroid

5.2 %


1. she was so well designed that she gives link a run for his money. 2 i find some of her powers not only impressive but satisfying to do. 3. her game is more puzzleing and sometimes harder to figure out at parts then others
Ultimate female gaming protagonist!
Samus is badass
