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!

Lip, the Fairy of Flowers, Panel De Pon, Super Famicom
This game’s theme was changed from fairies to Yoshi’s Island and was released as Tetris Attack in the States! I wonder… is the Yoshi in Tetris Attack just Lip with a costume on?
