Top 10 Nintendo Heroes


The Top TenXW

1Link - The Legend of Zelda SeriesLink refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

How is Link beaten by Yoshi, Kirby, and Donkey Kong... I really don't understand. Link is THE hero of Nintendo... An honest-to-goddesses hero. Completely selfless and doesn't even say a word, or expect anything in return. Honestly now, when you picture the knight in shining armor, do you see a cartoony dinosaur? A pink ball with a face? A banana-obsessed gorilla with a tie? Well personally, I can only imagine Link.

As we saw in ocarina of time, link can lift incredible things, and as we saw in every other game, he's an incredibly competent all around fighter, bows, swords, even boomerangs. He can fly, as seen in wind waker, can sail a boat, run a train, ride a horse, if one hero can do that many things and still fight monsters such as Demise(a beast) volvagia, Gohma, and etc? How can he be any less than the best?!

Dude why is Link not first? He's the only TRUE hero, in fact, basically his whole existence in each timeline is based on the fact that he is THE HERO that will save the whole frikin world! Hero of Time, Hero of Winds, Hero Chosen by the Goddesses, Hylia's Chosen Hero, the list is endless! Link has the true heart of a hero, he most ALWAYS is risking his life for other people, whereas other characters might have something in it for themselves. It is ridiculous that Link isn't even second or third.

2Kirby - Kirby SeriesKirby is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.

Jammer196, thomas is not a Nintendo hero. He's a childrens show hero. AND HE IS NOT COOL COMPARED TO KIRBY

He's so cute and good hearted. He always wants to help every one he meets and he's also the super tuff pink puff.

And also, just because yoshi is a dinosaur doesn't mean he's a t-rex.
Kirby, just cute, cuddly, and fun!

3Yoshi - Mario Series

Yoshi is the best video game character. He is SO much better than all of the Sonic characters combined.

Yoshi is my favourite Mario character in the fanchinse.
He's got a wicked long tounge that reach long distances, grab food and other things. He can breathe fire, grow wings which gives him the ability fly in the sky, flutter in mid air, pound the ground and other cool stuff.
There are other coloured Yoshi species and Yoshi has his own videogames starring him as the hero. Yoshi is my special childhood hero and friend.

4Mario - Mario SeriesMario is a fictional character in the Mario video game franchise, created by Nintendo's Japanese video game designer, Shigeru Miyamoto. He serves as the eponymous protagonist of the series and is the mascot of Nintendo. The Mario franchise is the best-selling video game franchise of all time.

By far the best!
Who is always rescues Peach? Mario! Wo always saves the mushroom kingdom? Mario! Who always defeats all bad guys? Mario! Who is the best? Mario! Who is the main character? Mario! All treads are like "Who are the best Mario characters" Mario is in the title!
So stop posting things like Luigi is our favourit man in Green. Mario is the best! Mario! Mario!

5Luigi - Mario Series

It was Luigi who saved everyone's favorite plumber from King Boo. It is Luigi who defined bravery. It is Luigi who found the power to turn from "Green Mario" to "Luigi, Everyone's Favorite Man In Green. " It is Luigi who changed gaming history for the better. - bonezee

Although Luigi is classified as a sidekick, he can be classified as a hero as well. He is my favourite and he always will be. Just how is Thomas the tank engine the list? He is a T.V. show character not a Nintendo character. SpongeBob as well.

7Samus Aran - MetroidSamus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo.

She's a super hot bounty hunter who is totally hot and destroy space pirate dragons and she has a power suit that lets her FIRE HER LAZERZ!

8Sonic - Sonic Series

I believe sonic the hedgehog should be at least number two in this list because he is a national known icon for sega and Nintendo when sonic two came out people called it sonic twos-day because it came out on tuesday and it is number two he is the one who competed with Mario since he was created and boosted rating for sega with out him sega is nothing

Er um, sonic wasn't created by Nintendo, idiots. He was created by SEGA. I still find him awesome, though.

9Tails - Sonic Series

Tails should get in first!

10Fox Mcloud - Star Fox Series

Fox is my favorite guy when he says his favorite quotes from Star Fox 64.

The Contenders

11Meta Knight - Kirby SeriesMeta Knight is a fictional character from the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.
12Pit - Kid Icarus

Pit can be so humorous during Kid Icarus Uprising.

13Bomberman - Bomberman Series
14Banjo - Banjo-Kazooie
15Lucas - Mother 3

If anyoine knows his backstory, they understand.

As a child, his mother is BRUTALLY KILLED at the hands of Porky Minch. His brother (is assumed by me to) go insane and try to kill the Drago that murdered their mum. This happens in the first 15 MINUTES of the game.

Mother 3 isn't a game.
It's a see how long you last without crying.

Isn't Mario the hero? Not Peach? She's still cool and all, it's just that the list is Top 10 Nintendo HEROES.

Good hero in my opinion! But not as good as Mario and Yoshi in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong
