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!

Tom and Nick, Snow Bros, Arcade
Great game, but I don’t get why these cute snowmen and their friends always look like fat ugly babymen in their character portraits.

Tiki and Wally, The New Zealand Story, various platforms
The kiwi’s natural enemy is, of course, the leopard seal, which makes its money selling the little birds on the black market. The kiwi retaliates with bows, arrows, bombs and rockets, which make up for its inability to fly.

I guess food is pretty hard to come by when you’re scaling an ice mountain! Why else would vegetables be so damn important?
