Top Ten Reasons Why the Legend of Zelda Is Better Than Super Mario Bros

DapperPickle
Seriously, Mario usually gets all the praise, but look at this, stunning graphics, and a princess not as nearly annoying as peach, great plots, it's the legend of zelda!

The Top Ten

1 Ocarina of Time is the best Nintendo game ever

My favorite is super Mario galaxy 2, but this The Legend Of Zelda: ocarina of Time is also an amazing Video Game as well! PERFECT! IN MY OPINION! - HeavyDonkeyKong

I agree with the majority of this list, but just remember that if it weren't for the original Super Mario Bros, there would be no Legends of Zelda-or any other video game for that matter. - Yungstirjoey

I guess Super Mario Galaxy doesn't exist. That's the best game in my opinion - ParkerFang

Opinion but okay - yunafreya648

2 Not as many annoying characters

Birdo, toad, peach, Waluigi, Wario, Hammer bros... - DapperPickle

What about Navi and Tingle?

3 The games are simple but not easy

What I mean is, most levels are medium level of difficulty, but some, plain easy! - DapperPickle

I disagree with this one

4 You get to ride a horse

I'm a huge Zelda fan but in Mario you get to ride a dinosaur

Whats a dinosaur compared to a horse who you can ride into battle

What's a dinosaur compared to a horse? Yoshi has a long tongue he can use to gobble up his enemies. Can a horse do that? No.

You get to ride Yoshi the Dino in Mario titles though... Invalid point. - Qryzx

5 There are more possibilities

Big worlds, side quests, great stuff! - DapperPickle

One time in SS, in Faron woods, I used a tree to get outside the border of the world. It was fun!

6 The legend of Zelda has a different plot every game

Unlike Mario, Zelda has some amazing plots, but Mario just has to save the princess! - DapperPickle

Its fresh, but Mario's plot sucks.

Mario has very little variety in the plot. I like how you do different things to find the triforce in the zelda series

Mario's rps all have awesome and unique stories, despite peach always getting kidnapped, in my opinion. - HeavyDonkeyKong

7 Ganondorf is much more evil than bowser

Much more bad-ass looking too. - DapperPickle

All Bowser cares about is the princess. Why?

So? Bowser is funny, which fits with the cartoonish Mario vibe.

Ganondorf has the power to take over the world, Bowser has no no chances against the king of evil. Ganondorf can also change form. He has the power to destroy. Anything. Bowser doesn't! He only has the power of being an annoyance to Mario, by constantly kidnapping the princess.(This should go up by 6.)

8 Zelda is not as annoying as Peach

We can all agree on this one, though. - DapperPickle

Zelda gives you cool stuff like Light Arrows and the Ocarina of Time. Peach does nothing.

Both are helpful and yeah I prefer Zelda over Peach - ParkerFang

Really original reason dude. - Qryzx

9 The characters are very memorable

Link, Zelda, Ganon, That elf guy, that fairy that says listen... - DapperPickle

Midna, Sheik, Saria, King of red lions, Linebeck, Skull Kid, Tetra, Zant, and much more.

10 Link is a greater and better hero than Mario

Mario is A. Pain in the butt to his bro, but link has to put up with "listen! Listen! " and he doesn't snap! - DapperPickle

I think there both equal just saying my opinion oh are you a game theory fanboy

Mario has saved the universe twice. - HeavyDonkeyKong

#gametheoryforlife! Seriously though both aren't saints and pure good guys

The Contenders

11 Better boss fights.

Yeah, in Mario games to kill Bowser by touching a button or an axe. But in ocarina of time, u get to play ping pong with a sword or an EMPTY BOTTLE! Ah, the hilarity

Bowserś fights aren't always on a bridge - HeavyDonkeyKong

Mario boss fights ex. squid from sunshine is riduculous they're free out. Zelda are locked in.

The boss fights aren’t just three hits dead they take longer and require items from the dungeon usually to defeat but in MARIO it’s just hop hop hop dead

12 Mario is too easy

Way. Too. Easy. I beat Super Mario 3D World in less than an hour. :P Zelda, however... name one from the timeline series that you can beat under an hour. (unless you are just that good or that much of a hacker)

13 The "worst" Zelda games are among the greatest games of all time.

I am sure Zelda : The Wand of Gamelon could beat Super Mario Galaxy 2 - LaoShan

Wand of Gamelon is pure garbage. - Drawbox

Please be more specific. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Fake Zelda cdi is beyond the worst video games of all tim

14 Better graphics

You can't deny this. Zelda has great graphics!

Mario kart 8? - HeavyDonkeyKong

15 Link is cooler than Mario

Mario has gone head to head with super dimentio. - HeavyDonkeyKong

I mean, in a fight between a human plumber vs. an wolf-like, sword wielding, tons of items using badass, link would win. Also, Mario uses too many mushroom drugs. Also,#GameTheory

16 The music is so much cooler

Name a more iconic companion than, Navi, Epona, Tatl, I'll wait.
oh and in The Legend of Zelda there's the Fairy Fountains with soothing music, what does Mario have?

17 The overall timeline makes sense

Actually, it is very confusing. - Skullkid755

At least there is a timeline

18 Link is stronger than Mario

Mario has beaten some pretty badass monsters though. - HeavyDonkeyKong

19 Better powers

Mario just runs around eating plant and shrooms and getting power.
Link runs around FINDING weapons, magic, and other items all over the world. Not to mention all the masks

20 Link is handsome

Ok this is a good one

21 Darker storyline

Play breath of the wild. its definitely dark. and awesome. - HeavyDonkeyKong

22 Badass powers and items

Link has the Ocarina of Time, magic powers, turn to a wolf, has the Triforce of Courage, and the Master Sword. Mario has a fire flower and a feather.

23 It's not childish

Mario games and Loz games are not meant to be childish at all. They’re for all ages.

24 Mario is not tall

That dumb not matter dumb apple

25 Most of the Mario games aren't even adventures

Well SMB 2 was a dream and SMB 64 could of been a movie

26 Better fight mechanics
27 All the things you can do in the game

You can ride a horse,swim deep,fight a boar who almost destroyed the world,meet a fairy,save a world beneath hyrule from a moon and you can get a motorcycle in BoT if you get dlc

28 Bowser is weaker than Ganon
