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!

Davy, Chameleon Twist, N64
This was one of the very first games I bought with my own money. I picked it up because the cover was cute, and BAM. Weird game ahoy! It’s pretty terrible, but I loved it back then.

Bomberman, various platforms
I imagine that Bomberman’s line of work would be pretty nerve wracking! The continuous, loud explosions, the maze-like arenas, unexpected bombs falling from the sky from opponents who got to the Power Glove powerup before you could…
