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!

Sly Cooper, Sly Cooper series, PS2
Aaah, sorry for the lack of regular updates lately! I’ve been more focused on a bunch of other work I’m doing, some videogame related, some not. You can follow my personal art Tumblr if you’re interested!
If not… have a sneaky raccoon! And a promise to do at least one character a week.

Protagonist, Chulip, PS2
It’s almost Valentine’s Day! And since I love you all, the next few entries are going to be filled to the brim with romance. Like this fellow, who just wants to kiss a snooty girl who laughs at him for being poor.
If there’s a character from a oft-forgotten love-themed game you’d like to see, put a suggestion in the ask box!

Hello! I’m back! And I have a message for you: go buy Rayman Origins! It’s terrible that it’s being overshadowed by all the bigger releases this season. It’s really, really good!

I want to be adopted by a caring, cute pig too! Though I guess I wouldn’t want to have to go rescue him from aliens and risk losing him forever.
