It comes down to this; a bunch of classic characters, but only one can be the best!
It is an epic showdown of… who is the greatest “Mario” character from back in the day (and current times). I call them the classic “Mario” characters because they were never creative enough to come up with an amazing group name (lol). I’m going to narrow it down to the top 3… then pick a winner.
Mario is an Italian plumber, no seriously he is. Mario could be called the leader of this group and he obviously is the most popular. I get the outfit and all, but one must think that it would get a little uncomfortable running around in suspenders all day. This guy’s life mission is to save Princess Peach from Bowser (evil bad guy). I just don’t get this dude though. So, Peach runs off and Mario saves her… and then she runs off again…. and once again. Mario is there for the save. Just give it up already Mario, you already saved her once, and you really don’t need to every single time.
What more is there to say. This little green guy has a giant tongue and can fly, well not for a long time, but I count it as flying. He even lets Mario jump on his back and ride him, making him by far the nicest dinosaur I have ever seen. Yoshi actually saved Mario back on Yoshi’s Island (for the Super Nintendo. No, not the terrible 3DS remake). Without Yoshi, there would be no Mario or Luigi. What other dinosaur would let you sit on their back? (as I mentioned). Exactly, there is no other.
The king of the jungle himself. Back in the day Mario and Donkey Kong used to be rivals. Donkey Kong was always throwing barrels at Mario as he tried to climb some ladders and save Princess Peach. Over time Donkey Kong turned to the good side, eventually leading to him and Mario putting aside their differences. Donkey Kong, with his side kick Diddy Kong, were a dynamic one-two punch. Donkey and Diddy ran through Donkey Kong Country together stepping on alligators and riding on frogs. Donkey Kong AKA DK is also known for his DK rap, if you don’t know what it is, I recommend you check it out, its pretty epic.
Three classic characters, but only one can win.
The winner is…
… wait for it…..
wait for it….
Let’s face it without Yoshi there would never be a Mario game. If he would’ve never delivered Mario and Luigi to their parents, Mario would never have been anywhere near as popular as he was today. Who knows what would’ve happened to him?
I guess that it kind of helps that Yoshi is my favorite character, so I’m a little biased. But…. he wins!
