Top 10 Nintendo Franchises That Should Get an Anime

When Star Fox Zero was released, we got an anime of Star Fox Zero. Now that it proves that Nintendo can make Animes, I thought of franchises that should get an anime. Today, I'll be listing the franchises that have the best chance of getting an anime

The Top Ten

1 Super Smash Bros

Duh! Of course this is #1. They should make the Subspace Emissary a real show, OR they can make a new story including ALL of the newcomers in Smash 4. - SmashBall

2 Legend Of Zelda

Back in 2008, Nintendo was actually planning on an anime for the Legend of Zelda, and it looked good compared to the one before, but it never happened. So maybe, with the Legend of Zelda for the Wii U coming, we may have a chance for an anime. - SmashBall

This would be really great! Except, Link has always been mute in the games. The only time he did talk he was really annoying. Like the CDi games and that other Zelda cartoon that was made.

3 Pokemon

Yeah I think we've had so many Pokemon anime. We don't need any more - Aidanisawesome

Like the manga as anime?

Let's give Ash a little break, and get the MAIN protagonists. The new anime can be from region to region, like Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, Kalos, AND maybe the new region from Pokemon Sun and Moon. It'll be like the Pokemon Origins but different region and the main protagonists from the region. - SmashBall

4 F-Zero

Who doesn't want see Captain Falcon, Falcon Punching someone!? That would EPIC to see! - SmashBall

There was already F-Zero: GP Legend back in the early-mid 2000's, but cool, I have no problem with seeing another one made.

5 Super Mario Bros

As much as we love Mario, I really don't have an idea of what can happen. But knowing Nintendo, they can make anything happen and they never disappoint us! - SmashBall

It already got an anime- four of them, in fact- in the 80s. Of course there was "The Great Mission To Rescue Princess Peach", notorious for ultimately revealing Peach already had a husband who hasn't been seen or mentioned anywhere since. Lesser known were Super Mario Momotarō, Super Mario Issun-bōshi, and Super Mario Shirayuki-hime‎, which saw the "Mario" characters acting out two Japanese folk tales and "Snow White" respectively.

6 Metroid

Metroid has a manga and if they turned that into an anime or animated one of the games that would be really cool and give us a totally different point of veiw.

I never actually played Metroid before, but I bet a lot you guys know. Let me know in the comment section if you have an idea. - SmashBall

7 Fire Emblem

This DID get an anime, back in the late 90s. It was an adaptation of the Archanea games (read: the ones starring Marth) that sadly only lasted two episodes (and I don't mean just two episodes were dubbed- only two episodes existed period). Fun fact: Marth's original Japanese voice actor in that anime is the same one from "Smash".

If we can see our waifus on an anime, I'm perfectly fine with any idea. - SmashBall

8 Kid Icarus: Uprising

While I do agree with a lot of these like Xenoblade and a new Kirby anime. But a Kid Icarus Uprising is one I'd want the most. It'd be funny and epic. - Pkpower


9 Earthbound

How would tthey do Giygas though - shawnmccaul22

10 Kirby

Kirby anime with Marx. That's all I need.

Kirby has actually had an anime before, so why not give our favorite puffball another one! - SmashBall

Maybe Kirby: Right Back At Ya 2?

I'd like to see another one. Maybe one that follows the story of the games a bit more closely. Animated Kirby vs. Haltmann? - Garythesnail

The Contenders

11 Xenoblade

It works perfectly

12 Splatoon

Well, what do you know. As of this writing, it's going to premiere on YouTube tomorrow. - TheYoshiOverlord

13 Golden Sun

Golden Sun has a good atmosphere, lore and setting for an anime. I'd love to see how the elemental psynergy is handled and there needs to be an interesting dynamic between the four character Isaac, Mia, Garet and Ivan.

14 Starfly
15 Star Fox

In My Opinion, it Deserves an Anime, and I know that Star Fox Zero the Battle begins Exists, but that was just a 15-Minute Promotional Short.

16 Mario & Luigi
