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!

Starfy, Starly and Moe, The Legendary Starfy series, GBA and DS
The soggier, dizzier and easier version of the Kirby series. Though, that’s not necessarily a bad thing!

Ellie and Chomp of Monster Tale, Nintendo DS
Monster Week continues with the stars of a really cool Castlevania/pet raising simulator mashup where cookie eating is part of the gameplay! There are so many other evolutions Chomp can turn into, but this big green fella is my Chomp.
