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!

Haggleman, Retro Game Challenge, DS
This robot ninja was the star of some of my favorite games growing up! I hated that they completely changed the style for the third game, though. Ugh!
I will be drawing my favorite Retro Game Challenge/Game Center CX characters all week! There are just too many good ones to limit it to one, and these games deserve more attention!
As does the source material, Retro Game Master, a dub of which airs on Kotaku every Thursday.
