10 Reasons Why Mario Is Better Than Sonic


The Top TenXW

1Without Mario There Would Be No Sonic

If Mario hadn't, saved the video game industry's. Then there would be no sonic... - nintendofan126

Sonic is just a fail rip off of Mario blue skin big feet and cute big eyes that make me cry every time I see then and the yellow belt!

Actually if there wasn't Mario sonic would be created but not selling well - spodermanfan1000

Yeah this is actually true. - PaperMarioFan

2Sonic fans are annoying

Sonic would be better if he hadn't this fanbase - ShahryRKnoT

Just because you hate the franbase doesn't mean you should hate the games. Just play the games and don't get involved in annoying stuff the fans do. Hating the game just because you hate the fandom is like hating a car because of the guy driving the car!

How do you think that much people are annoying - Nateawesomeness

And Mario Fans are good? God, I hate them. - DCfnaf

3Sonic Has an Annoying Voice

I died when I heard his voice he failed to copy Mario's voice

Yay he says all right all the time Mario kart is the best

Sonic mother be like: sonic why can't you be a dear like Mario and shut up

And Mario's isn't? You know Sonic has a better voice. - DCfnaf

4Sonic Fans Make Terrible Fanart

If you wanna argue about this, go Google sonic fanart and see what people made. Some of it is ok... But most, of it is terrible. - nintendofan126

They also make good fanart, but it is hard to find, I'll admit. But I'm willing to bet that Mario has some good and bad fanart as well.

Only 5 year olds like sonic wait SONIC IS NOT FOR KIDS

Most of it is terrifying, it's weird! Some of it's cool though.

5Mario Doesn't Have a Perverted Anime Fandom

Don't give those 34-year-old couch potatoes who live in their mom's basement any ideas! - BeatlesFan1964

*cough cough cough* Fanfiction *cough cough cough* Deviantart
Seriously, with both fandoms, I've seem some pretty darn good stuff, but as much as there is excellent content, there's some pretty messed up stuff...

6Mario Has Better Games

Mario has better games than Sonic in general, especially Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins and Super Mario 64 for the N64.

Mario games, have sold way more than sonic games... - nintendofan126

True they all the same and it doesn't have a back story but who cares about that we care about the game and mario games are exactly what we need

Yeah Mario games are popular than Sonic.

7Mario's Better for Kids

This is true especially with the fact that there is so many messed up sonic fan art that kids might be into that mario doesn't have oh and I liv in Saudi Arabia and literally every where we go there is a super mario statue or big screen or painting and kids love it that's because king of Saudi Arabia thought it was a great idea to put the Italian plumber all over the country and nobody knows sonic there

Sonic is worst! I mean! Pokemon and Mario are fun and cuter! Nintendo's two game series are way better than that stinky hedgehog

Yes Mario has been there when I was like 5 and when I seen sonic I was scared and had nightmares I was into guns and bad stuff because of it but now I'm back

Completely untrue. Both are good for kids. - DCfnaf

8Sonic Abused Tails In Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Mario is helping Luigi like in super Mario galaxy he takes his time to help whoever needs help and Sonic just is a bull to everyone his games should be called "Let's Get This Over With I Don't Care About Anything Ha Ha"

For everyone who is saying mario abuses yoshi no he is not because the player is the one doing it

Which is too bad since Sonic and Tails are supposed to be friends. Hope this isn't true...

This never happened! - DCfnaf

9Sonic Has More Bad Games

Mario has bad games too... But sonics games are worst! - nintendofan126

Mario does have bad games but they are like 3% of mario games most are good where as sonic has the most BORING GAMES EVER

What about Mario is missing? And Hotel Mario? Those each count as about 5 or 10 bad games. -shadowswagger922

Of course he is he gets like 3 or 4 games a year when sonic only gets one horrible one

Everyone sure has heard about him (not people who died under 1981

True this no one in youtube ever plays sonic games but they play mario maker mario run mario 3DS unfair mario I don't see any sonic

16Sonic has terrible TV shows

Mario had some bad cartoons too but I did like them my fave was the super Mario bro 3 one the acting and the voice acting was great!

I mean, they did a show off a terrible game series! (Sonic Boom, & now every character looks very crappy)

Agreed. The Super Mario bros super show is heck compared to the adventures of sonic the hedgehog.

Both suck but mario is better

17Mario is from a better company

Nintendo is the best game company in the world! Search in Google if you don't believe me.

I had a Nintendo when I was a kid I loved it

This has to be the best reason why

Nintendo rocks! Sega men.

Big deal. That doesn't mean it's better. -shadowswagger922 who is done with this list

20It has been proven that in their first games, Mario is faster than Sonic

That theory has been debunked. Also, it was JUST A THEORY to begin with.

Yah and in rio Olympus you can see mario catching up with sonic in a race most sonic fans think sonic is better then mario because he is faster I wonder what they think now

I tested it myself game theory is correct, mario's faster

Isn't that just a theory. - PaperMarioFan
