no marios allowed!

(updates weekdays! [sometimes])

nomarios is a Tumblog where artist Ashley Davis draws all the coolest videogame characters who don't get to be under the spotlight too often.

This means no one from Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Sonic, Portal, Kirby, Pokemon, Tetris, Mega Man, Final Fantasy, Street Fighter, most other major Nintendo series and most games made in the past five years.1 Basically, any character that doesn't show up on Tumblr's gaming radar very often is fair game. 2 No licensed characters either!


1 Exceptions may be made for the stars of less popular spinoffs

2 I have nothing against these guys! I love Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Link, Pokemon and Nintendo as a whole very dearly. But there are tons of other cool guys who deserve lots of attention too!

Bubsy, SNES/Genesis
People give Bubsy a lot of crap for his stupid one-liners, but my theory is that they’re supposed to be stupid. With lines like, “Is the writers’ strike over yet?”, it’s obvious they were using him to  make a statement on the 90s-animal-mascots-with-‘tude trend!
Orrrr maybe not.
