Nintendo's Kindest Characters

These characters are very kind but are also willing to fight. They display many traits of being self-less, sweet, kind and have gentle mannerisms. If you see someone missing, add them.

The Top Ten

Pikmin (Pikmin)

Nit only do they fight for their lives and carry around stuff, but these mini plant-ants are possibly the cutest thing ever.

Any pikmin counts because they're all willing to help strangers like Olimar, Charlie, etc survive. They're kind, self-less, and go out of their way to help perfect strangers even putting themselves at risk. They deserve the number one spot. - SweetBasil

Eirika (Fire Emblem)

I could fill this list with Fire Emblem characters but I'll just pick one for now. Princess Eirika strikes me as the kindest protagonist yet, she grew up as a sheltered princess unlike her brother. Throughout her journey we can see how naive yet kind she is. She goes out of her way to try and save children, civilians, and her loved ones which puts her in danger many times. Yet she never loses her gentle tough and makes many important friends in her journey. - SweetBasil

I agree. She is very kind.

Elline (Kirby)

I think she's probably one of the nicest Kirby character yet but a lot of Kirby characters seem fit this title so I had to pick just one and I picked her. Kirby is also a good alternative but I felt like giving someone else the spot. - SweetBasil

Starfy (The Legendary Starfy)

Starfy is the starfish protagonist from the Starfy series. He is very much like Kirby in that he's really cute, fun, kind and jovial. He has different abilities though, he can transform into different things and has different abilities like fire, although he's mainly portrayed using water abilities in smash. - SweetBasil

Isabelle (Animal Crossing)

Animal Crossing is a series that you can't go wrong with calling most of its characters kind. However Isabelle seems to be pushed as the marketable "kind" character so she's like the mascot for it. - SweetBasil

Fiora (Xenoblade Chronicles)

In Xenoblade I think Fiora or Dunban seemed like they kindest characters of the crew. They were the friendliest of the grew, while Dunban was the wisest of the group Fiora was the most selfless so I'd say she's more fitting for this category. - SweetBasil

Rosalina (Mario) Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Franchise created by Nintendo. She first appeared in the 2007 Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy for the Nintendo Wii and later returned for the game's sequel in 2010. Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games more.

The Mario series also has a lot of competition for the "Kindest" characters but I'd the top 5 is between Peach, Yoshi, Toad, Toadette, and Rosalina. Each of them portray kindness in different ways but I'd say characters that have a motherly nature are a little bit kinder so that leaves Yoshi vs Rosalina and for this coin toss I picked Rosalina. Sorry Yoshi.


Nurse Joy (Pokemon) Nurse Joy is a fictional character in the Pokemon Universe who works at the Pokemon center in almost every major city who tends to the Pokemon brought in by trainers after battle.

The Nurse Joy family takes care of your fallen pokemon so each of them need to be kind, and caring to the pokemon. Otherwise you'd need to buy items on your own! The pokemon that are portrayed as her companion like Chansey and such are also good alternatives for this list. - SweetBasil

Princess Peach (Super Mario Bros series) Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is the lead female of the The Mario franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario more.

There are many kind Nintendo characters but my favorite is Peach.

Prince Sidon (Zelda)

The Prince of the Zora family in Breath of the wild. Prince Sidon displays a lot personality like being brave, optimistic, and a good sport. He is one of the few willing to co-operate with Link to the dismay of his elders. - SweetBasil

The Contenders

Pit (Kid Icarus Uprising) 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.

Pit is loud, cheerful, and a very curious character. He resembles an outgoing teenager in my opinion even though he's an angel. Other characters love to tease him but that doesn't ever bring him down. He's overall cheerful and charismatic. - SweetBasil

Robin (Fire Emblem)


Robin (in game) wakes up with NO clue who he/she is, and yet still decides to rush straight into battle to protect a village without even knowing if they can fight. They then take one of the most stressful positions in war, tactician, to keep people who don’t even fully trust them *cough* Fredrick *cough* safe. Not only that, but when their past is finally revealed, and they are given a choice to die to protect the future, they do it even though they know it is most likely permeant. (At least in my play through, I personally can’t NOT sacrifice myself for everyone, it has the cutest end scene! ) Plus, if you spend time getting Robin to support with others they are genuinely kind, and extremely supportive, particularly Male Robin.

Yoshi (Super Mario World) Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. He is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi and Mario franchises.

He sacrifices himself for Mario to get him over pits. This is just outright generous.

This friendly dinosaur allows you to ride on his back, eating away obstacles. He also appears in his own game, yoshi's woolly world, where he and his team of poochys save his land of evil creatures. Even if the internet sees him as a tax fraud, he's a lovable mascot to nintendo in my book.

Fox McCloud (StarFox) Fox McCLoud is an anthropomorphic fox who first appeared in Star Fox for the Super NES in 1993, the son of James McCloud who perished during a mission and the leader of the new Star Fox team along with Peppy Hare former member of the original Star Fox team, Falco Lombardi and Slippy Toad as they the more.

He saves his teammates whenever they're in danger. That is very kind.

Zelda (The Legend of Zelda series) Princess Zelda is a fictional character in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto and introduced in its original entry in 1986.
