Top 10 Nintendo Characters Not Introduced On the NESThe NES saved gaming and introduced Mario, Link, Samus, Kirby and many more of Nintendo's most famous characters. However, today we are looking at the characters who weren't introduced on the NES. For this list, arcade games don't count as the debut, leaving out Donkey Kong and Little Mac as candidates.
