Top Ten Reasons Why the Legend of Zelda Is Better Than Super Mario Bros

Seriously, Mario usually gets all the praise, but look at this, stunning graphics, and a princess not as nearly annoying as peach, great plots, it's the legend of zelda!

The Top Ten

1 Ocarina of Time is the best Nintendo game ever

I love this game so much it hurts. Story was great, characters were great, music is epic! The world was massive and I love to explore it! I still like Mario but I will always play a Legend of Zelda game on a day where I feel down or bored! This franchise is (obviously) one of Nintendo's best! - smrpg1996

My favorite is super Mario galaxy 2, but this The Legend Of Zelda: ocarina of Time is also an amazing Video Game as well! PERFECT! IN MY OPINION! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Good everything, extremely memorable, brings back the child in ya! - DapperPickle

I hate how they have this as number 1 as if it's a fact

3 The games are simple but not easy

What I mean is, most levels are medium level of difficulty, but some, plain easy! - DapperPickle

4 You get to ride a horse

I'm a huge Zelda fan but in Mario you get to ride a dinosaur

Whats a dinosaur compared to a horse who you can ride into battle

And Mario you get to ride a super cool dino named yoshi

Mario you ride yoshi. It's fun in sunshine.

5 The legend of Zelda has a different plot every game

Unlike Mario, Zelda has some amazing plots, but Mario just has to save the princess! - DapperPickle

Nintendo should try mixing Mario's plots up a bit. The RPGs have different plots but main series games are basically "save the princess from Bowser on a basis of eight worlds". Nintendo should try something new in the Mario games. - smrpg1996

Its fresh, but Mario's plot sucks.

6 There are more possibilities

Big worlds, side quests, great stuff! - DapperPickle

One time in SS, in Faron woods, I used a tree to get outside the border of the world. It was fun!

7 Ganondorf is much more evil than bowser

All Bowser cares about is the princess. Why?

So? Bowser is funny, which fits with the cartoonish Mario vibe.

8 Zelda is not as annoying as Peach

We can all agree on this one, though. - DapperPickle

Zelda gives you cool stuff like Light Arrows and the Ocarina of Time. Peach does nothing.

Yeah, Zelda does stuff unlike peach but both can be annoying sometimes and are mostly dsels in distress (LTTP anyone) But take Pirit Tracks (besides thomas the tank engine) and you can tell that Zelda does a lot more and isn't as annoying

9 Better boss fights.

Yeah, in Mario games to kill Bowser by touching a button or an axe. But in ocarina of time, u get to play ping pong with a sword or an EMPTY BOTTLE! Ah, the hilarity

10 The characters are very memorable

Link, Zelda, Ganon, That elf guy, that fairy that says listen... - DapperPickle

The Contenders

11 Link is a greater and better hero than Mario

Mario is A. Pain in the butt to his bro, but link has to put up with "listen! Listen! " and he doesn't snap! - DapperPickle

I think there both equal just saying my opinion oh are you a game theory fanboy

Mario has saved the princess again. And again. And again. But Link has saved the world and even small places on the planet like Termina

#gametheoryforlife! Seriously though both aren't saints and pure good guys

12 The overall timeline makes sense V 2 Comments
13 Better graphics

You can't deny this. Zelda has great graphics!

14 Link is cooler than Mario

I mean, in a fight between a human plumber vs. an wolf-like, sword wielding, tons of items using badass, link would win. Also, Mario uses too many mushroom drugs. Also,#GameTheory

15 The "worst" Zelda games are among the greatest games of all time.

I am sure Zelda : The Wand of Gamelon could beat Super Mario Galaxy 2 - LaoShan

16 Darker storyline
17 Link is stronger than Mario
18 Badass powers and items

Link has the Ocarina of Time, magic powers, turn to a wolf, has the Triforce of Courage, and the Master Sword. Mario has a fire flower and a feather.

19 Most of the Mario games aren't even adventures

Well SMB 2 was a dream and SMB 64 could of been a movie

20 Mario is too easy
