Most Forgotten Nintendo Characters

The Top Ten

Captain Falcon Douglas Jay Falcon, known commonly as Captain Falcon, is a playable character in the racing video game series F-Zero.

The character himself isn't that forgotten, more his series in general.

I will never forget the FALCON PUNCH! I always play Cpt. Falcon on Super Smash Bros. - BKAllmighty

Honestly thought that he was a smash original - Scarytar44

I'm personality a big fan of f zero. But the series has been forgotten. - Cool_Fencer

Pokemon Gym Leaders

MISTY BROCK you could just remember them by watching the TV series

Morty, Flannery, Sabrina, MISTY?! These guys rule!

There where 8 of these guys in every Pokemon game... Where do they go after they get there butts whooped? Of course why WOULD we want to see these guys again?

Its a shame we grow up sometimes


I want to see anyone in real life who's beaten Earthbound, or heck, even HEARD of Earthbound.

I wish mother was well known

I only know Ness from Smash.

There is no earth bound 64

Toadette Toadette is a character in the Mario series. She is a female Toad who first appeared in the Nintendo GameCube video game Mario Kart: Double Dash.

She's not necessarily forgotten, she's still being used in Nintendo Games

Toadette is never talked about nor used

She’s in Captain toad treasure tracker and Mario odyssey

Tin Star

Robot cowboy super scope game on the SNES. Fantastic soundtrack

Prince of Hyrule

This guy is hardly mentioned and not a lot of people know of him.

he's totally forgotten :)! LOL


Cowardly?! Did you even play any of the Star Fox games besides 64? She's one of the bravest members on the team. Don't confuse her with Slippy.

Did everyone forget that cowardly blue fox? Maybe she's not popular I thought she was.


Boo is the most epic Mario character. I love his ablity to frighten Mario and to turn invisible. - babbott15

Chunky Kong

He only appeared in donkey kong 64, I hope he came back

Lol he is dead

fat daddy

We all know Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong, maybe Dixie and Cranky, but NO ONE remembers Chunky. I knew who lanky and tiny were, it is wasn’t until a year until I knew that chunky kong is a thing. And you know what? I like him. He has a funny name, funny personality, and he is super strong. Stronger than DK himself. Not to mention that do punches the moon out of orbit! If chunky is stronger than him, he could straight up punch Earth and send our planet into destruction. Do yeah. Look up this ape and you’ll probably enjoy him.

Toad Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a major character in the Mario Bros. franchise. He assists Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom and will do whatever it takes to help her. He first appeared in the classic game, Super Mario Bros. after being kidnapped by Bowser and his minions. Since then he has more.

This is stupid Tod is famous.

The Contenders


Daisy is a Mario character but if she is dropped, why does she date Luigi, how about Kamek or Wario or ANYBODY! Mario would be perfect for Daisy. I wish Mario and Daisy were a couple.

Daisy is not so forgotten but Nintendo should use her in the main games again. - DaisyandRosalina

I remember she was an awesome character. So sad that's all I know

Daisy does not want to date luigi. it is waluigi she dates

Pauline Pauline, also known as Daniella Verducci, is the original damsel-in-distress whom Mario must rescue from the eponymous ape in the original Donkey Kong.

I only know Pauline because she appeared in Mario Odyssey for a bit.

Most people forgot Pauline because she appears on Donkey Kong and Super Mario Super Show and DS Donkey Kong, but here's Rosalina, only on two games and sucks and is everyone's favorite.

Pauline was the first Mario female around in a pixel and now she's animated but why did she get lost? Oh yeah, because of Bowser who stole Donkey Kong's place.


Which Roy though? Fire Emblem or SMB?


Pit (Kid Icarus) Pit is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Kid Icarus series, first appearing in Kid Icarus for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1986 and later appearing in Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters for the Game Boy in 1991.
Mike Jones

If you don't know who this is, I'll fill you in. He's the main character of a game called Startropics on the NES. He was planned to be in Brawl and even had official artwork, but was then dropped because Startropics wasn't released in Japan. He hasn't appeared in a game for over 20 years. That is a true forgotten character.

StarTropics is such a fun game. It's a shame he's so forgotten. We haven't even gotten OTHER StarTropics characters, or even the slightest references, either, in any of Nintendo's recent stuff... - GalaxiButter

Tails Miles "Tails" Prower is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series, and the title character's best friend and sidekick.

Tails is a unique character considering he's a fox with two tails with the ability to fly. Tails is just as cool as Sonic is I think he should have his own video game starring him as hero.

without tails i dont think sonic would be able to do many things

We do realize that tails is a sega character right? And that he's still pretty popular?

Tails is owned by Sega and is 2nd to 4th most popular Sonic characters too.


I don't even think he has his own game. I only have seen him in Super Smash Ultimate

He was like the first nintendo

Luigi Luigi is a character featured in video games and related media released by Nintendo. Created by prominent game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Luigi is portrayed as the slightly younger but taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Mario franchise, more.

Luigi hasnt been forgotten

WHAT OOOOOOMMMMMMGGGGGG Luigi is Mario's partner.

Ice Climbers

I can't stand all this Ice Climber hate on the web. It needs to stop. If they are not playable in SSB4, I may not be buying it. Luigi and Tails shouldn't be on here. Luigi is nowhere near forgotten (talk about him being unappreciated also needs to stop) and Tails is SEGA not Nintendo.

They appeared in 4 games

Hey guys, they’re back in Smash Ultimate!

Sadly they aren't in Smash 4 :( - DaisyandRosalina

Geno (Super Mario RPG)


Mario Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super more.
