I've got a better idea, let's make this about Wario Land instead.

What the....?

Um... yeah... the crouch hacking is pretty cool, but you can do that sort of stuff in Sonic games, such as one method called "zipping".

I'm honestly not sure how to respond to the rest. It... I mean how do they even come close to achieving your goal?

Donkey Kong and Bowser should be pretty obvious, Tatanga is from the original Mario Land, Wario is Mario Land 2, Wart is the imported Mario 2, and the rest are RPG boss characters from some of the different branches there

Whose the big demon Fianl Fantasy guy? He's literally hte only I don't recognize. Also the Millenium Star is from Mario Party 3, not an RPG.

Unless that's supposed to be Culex.

You guys are really not making your case if a lot of the good bad guys in the series are in spin-offs and party games.

Sadly Shigeru has gone mad and decided that Mario needed to be as generic as possible, so he's made a Bowser only rule for the later entries in the main series... and the last boss of Mario and Luigi Dream Team is apparently...

A Giant Bowser.....

Good news, it's the year of Luigi! Bad news, it's more than half over.

To persuade Sofox to see the light I will offer the following points:

1. Mario, despite dressing up as an animal more than once, is not attached to the furry fandom.
2. Mario was protrayed by Captain Lou Albano, who could beat Steve Urkel in a fight.
3. He rides around on a dinosaur.
4. Mario is kinda fat, how many other world icons are kinda fat? He survives and excells in an industry where heroes are basically all paramilitary white badass dudes trying to be badass. Mario is just keeping it real.
5. He had a cereal.

6. He's a plumber, suggesting he has invested in his own future through trade school education
7. He does all this shit for a Princess without demanding reward
8. Invites Bowser and Donkey Kong to go Go-Karting
9. Hard core Parkour
10. Collects all these different power star type things and never once tries to take over the world

All in all, Humble Adventurer Broski

I think this ancient song by Benefit properly articulates why Mario is like a white Morris Day.

P.S. If anyone is a fan of Protomen-esque rock projects based on geekery, Jonathan Mann's Mario Opera is going to be played up in NYC at Joe's Pub this Saturday.

In response to your P.S.: That second Protomen album is basically one of the best records I've ever heard. Became absolutely obsessed with that one. I will have to check out this Mario Opera (not in person, obviously, being in Blighty).

R.C. doesn't post here much anymore, but you would get along well with him over that one.  One caveat is that the Mario Opera sounded much more...light and hipstery instead of the dark and hard rock Protomen from what I can tell.  Truth be told, I was planning on going to the Mario Opera performance, but decided against it as I wasn't enjoying the artist's sound at all.  Oh, well.


As for Mario being pretty cool, then, there's the fabulous soundtracks...

...and promos which are spectacular...

Also Mario is pretty cool because HE HAS HAD A SERIES OF FANTASTIC GAMES THAT HAVE HELD UP OVER THE PAST THIRTY YEARS.

I mean

c'mon

Donkey Kong

Super Mario Bros

Super Mario Bros 3 and World and the fucking GALAXY GAMES

have you played Super Mario Galaxy

I mean if this is you trying to say that Sonic is cooler than Mario then um

look I have a secret to tell you

There are way more good Mario games than there are Sonic games oops
