Top Ten Reasons Why Sonic Is Better Than Mario

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Sonic has more heroic characters

You are beware that shadow was a bad guy at first and really shadow doesn't kinda care about the planet so...

I mean, Shadow ACTUALLY SACRIFICED himself to save the planet! So did Chip. And in Archie comics, one time, Sonic apparently SACRIFICES himself for his friends.
Does Mario contain any of that?

Many sacrifices are made by sonic and the others. The only one being sacrifced in Mario is poor yoshi

42Sonic has cool villains

The Deadly Six? Pretty decent. Especially that joke about Zazz needing to take a bath.

Alright... I will admit that Bowser is pretty bad-butt. He ruined a festival that happened once every 100 years. He kidnaps the love of Mario's life like a zillion times. Probably a bunch of other things, but I can't remember them right now. Anyways, Dr. Eggman is also pretty bad. He roboticized Sonic's entire family, he destroyed Knothole, and enslaved a bunch of adorable animals. Mephiles (according to other sites) is arguably the best villian in the entire Sonic series. He almost destroys everything that ever was, he betrays Silver, and... SPOILER ALERT... Kills Sonic. He is the only villian to do so. Metal Sonic... Don't even get me started with him. He is just bad, bad, and bad.
Oh well, I've said my peice... What do you think?

44Sonic games have more intense emotional moments.

They could be better than Mario's. Man, Nintendon't has no memorable moments whatsoever because they have crappy characters that has no arguments that they are cliche, while you have Tails that can be defended by his cuteness, moments of funniness, smartness (meaning that he is smarter than those who would be lazy), and finally he has at least a cute classic form and a modern form. Knuckles is somewhat okay because of his tendency to be dumb, but not as dummy as the Sonic Boom version. Cream is okay because she somehow fights back when needed. Amy, while I am very annoyed by her thanks to her having a obsession for Sonic, is better because she has funniness in the comics about e.g. Sonic smells like a burnt fireplace. It's no wonder that sometimes they ship her with Sonic. But then you have "Useless" Toad(s), Princess Pinch-your-nose-until-you-love-me-or-so-help-me-that-I-will-be-very-annoying-to-you, and that is what or who should be removed from the franchise in order to actually ...more

45Sonic has more cartoon shows that Mario

Not by much sonic has only 5 cartoons and Mario has 3 but Sonic's are creative while Mario's are boring for most part - spodermanfan1000

46Sonic games have morals

I'm bet Sonic have many quotes and morals.This game doesn't like Mario.
Mario doesn't have any sense. People that fans with Mario is a dumbhead.

49Sonic looks cooler than Mario

If you read the comment below and wonder why Sonic's legs are getting longer, longer legs mean more graceful running in my opinion. SEGA must've realized this and gradually lengthened his legs so fans don't freak out because he turned into Slenderman suddenly.
Speaking of, I'm not sure if SEGA is going to turn Sonic into Slenderman. If they did, I'd die laughing.

He has one joined eye that can somehow work just fine it's the stuff of nightmares

Whats so cool about normal plumber?

Sonic is the definition of cool

50No third Mario brother (there could be a Mario, Luigi & Guido)

How does that make sonic better sonic has no siblings tell you what I win because I have 4 siblings

51Weak females are less frequent

Cream not in smash either. Mario when they do have femal characters they're useless except Rosalina. Daisy just a clone, useless!

Chris from Sonic X, "Everyone is trying so hard to fight at some point. Even Cream and Cheese had fought and that was not something easy to do. Me, I may as well just admit it. I am totally useless."

Here's what I say to Nintendo and Sega. Nintendo, take Peach out of Super Smash Bros Melee, Brawl, 4 and any future Smash game! Sega, convince Nintendo to make Amy in SSB5 and not Peach or at least be dlc in 4

54Classic Sonic is better than Classic Mario

Classic Sonic (poking Classic Mario): Poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, po- Classic Mario: ENOUGH! Mama mia. Gosh, why do you have to annoy me? Classic Sonic: Because I think that Princess is that annoying, but you don't seem to think so. So I have to show ...more

Classic Sonic is also better than 'modern' Sonic. Classic Sonic looked cool, and endearing without being some sickening cuteness attempt (Sonic Generations' Classic Sonic doesn't count; they made him a wide-eyed, muted 'cute' moron and couldn't even get his colour right - also, suddenly Tails had a voice back then, but Sonic didn't? - original Sonic, whenever depicted, was focused and confident; the opposite of Generations).
The 'modern' Sonic, however, looks like a cat that's just been pulled out of the washing machine, having, before that, spent several years on a stretching rack.
And every five years or so, what to sega do?
Ruin him further by putting him in for another wash cycle. Before long, he'll be (an extremely anorexic) Godzilla the HedgeCat. As for the oother characters, I shudder to think...
But to the point, whenever I see Mario, I want to slap him. And whoever started urinating about with Sonic's characters' designs; they're starting to look as stupid as ...more

55Sonic's first games are better than Mario's.

Yes. The first game, Sonic the Hedgehog (1991) was the first Sonic games.
It was simple, fun, and it made sense.

Not to spoil anything, but Mario's first games are more than 5 years older than Sonic's.

What are you saying? Both games are good

The first Mario was a reward winning game but sonic 1 no

56Rouge is better than Waluigi
57Knuckles in Sonic 2
58Shadouge is better than Luaisy

Shadow and Rouge are a creative couple. Luigi and Daisy are an unfair couple.

Shadouge isn't fanon. Have you even played the later Sonic games? They interact many times toward each other and Rouge flirts with him for god's sake.

Lol no, Luiasy is canon. CANON. Don't compare a fan ship to a canon ship.

59Sonic is for older audiences

Modern Sonic has some moments where it gets kind of dark and realistic at the same time. Mario, however has so many games based around this Princess that is a liar that it's no wonder why people say it's for kids. You know, while we have a mutant fox, and other weird animals, I think that it's more likely that we would live with animals in harmony rather than teach kids to kill some plant life just because they are depicted to be evil.

Lol are you kidding me? 10 year olds even like it!

The sonic fandom is like 6-12.

Mario fanbase is 6-28.

Dumbasses, get your mind straight and compare the fanbases next time.

AND DO SOME RESEARCH. - PaperMarioFan
