10 Reasons Why Mario Is Better Than Sonic


The Top Ten

1 Without Mario There Would Be No Sonic

If Mario hadn't, saved the video game industry's. Then there would be no sonic... - nintendofan126

Sonic is just a fail rip off of Mario blue skin big feet and cute big eyes that make me cry every time I see then and the yellow belt!

You know mario your awesome I love you and thank you

Atari's E.T. fail caused the video game industry to crash. Then Mario saved it! Sonic? Well,... Sega just wants money. So basically sonic is just like Mario but worse. MUCH WORSE! Sega doesn't care about the quality! They care about fans and quantity! They trick gamers into buying ripoff games. Nintendo would never do that!

2 Sonic fans are annoying

Sonic would be better if he hadn't this fanbase - ShahryRKnoT

Just because you hate the franbase doesn't mean you should hate the games. Just play the games and don't get involved in annoying stuff the fans do. Hating the game just because you hate the fandom is like hating a car because of the guy driving the car!

Yay sega is so bad copy cats

So are Mario fans look at the Super Mario community on G plus.

3 Mario Has Better Games

I hate sonic because his fans are annoying, his games are lame and crap and he is overrated, I mean, once I saw a Mario vs Sonic top list and nearly everyone picked the Sonic games, I saw that in the Sonic 3 vs Super Mario Bros 3 section everybody picked the sonic game, while I prefer Mario 3 because is better, and I will send a big message and pick SMB3 and encourage people to vote for SMB3 - GumballWatterson

Mario has better games than Sonic in general, especially Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins and Super Mario 64 for the N64.

Mario games, have sold way more than sonic games... - nintendofan126

Yea that is so true

4 Sonic Has an Annoying Voice

Sonic mother be like: sonic why can't you be a dear like Mario and shut up

I died when I heard his voice he failed to copy Mario's voice

Yay he says all right all the time Mario kart is the best

Who thinks Mario voice is not bad has never played any other than nintendo

5 Sonic Fans Make Terrible Fanart

If you wanna argue about this, go Google sonic fanart and see what people made. Some of it is ok... But most, of it is terrible. - nintendofan126

They also make good fanart, but it is hard to find, I'll admit. But I'm willing to bet that Mario has some good and bad fanart as well.

Only 5 year olds like sonic wait SONIC IS NOT FOR KIDS

Really? Search Weegee. - Drawbox

6 Mario Doesn't Have a Perverted Anime Fandom

Actually, he does. They both do.

Don't give those 34-year-old couch potatoes who live in their mom's basement any ideas! - BeatlesFan1964

As Much As I Dislike The Bad Fans Of Sonic, Stereotyping Is Not Okay - JPK

How is sonic x perverted? - Nateawesomeness

What about hentai Peach pictures? - ParkerFang

7 Sonic Abused Tails In Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Mario is helping Luigi like in super Mario galaxy he takes his time to help whoever needs help and Sonic just is a bull to everyone his games should be called "Let's Get This Over With I Don't Care About Anything Ha Ha"

Yeah in Mario Tennis if Luigi wins Mario steps on his foot and tries shaming him. - Devlinjustus

Proof that sonic is not a hero

He let tails drown, like 100 times! - nintendofan126

That's the player @##hole! - Drawbox

8 Mario's Better for Kids

This is true especially with the fact that there is so many messed up sonic fan art that kids might be into that mario doesn't have oh and I liv in Saudi Arabia and literally every where we go there is a super mario statue or big screen or painting and kids love it that's because king of Saudi Arabia thought it was a great idea to put the Italian plumber all over the country and nobody knows sonic there

Sonic is worst! I mean! Pokemon and Mario are fun and cuter! Nintendo's two game series are way better than that stinky hedgehog

Yes Mario has been there when I was like 5 and when I seen sonic I was scared and had nightmares I was into guns and bad stuff because of it but now I'm back

Totally kid appropriate! No blood, knives, or guns. Sure there is fire balls but it's so harmless Andy this game is innocent

9 Sonic Has More Bad Games

Mario has bad games too... But sonics games are worst! - nintendofan126

Mario does have bad games but they are like 3% of mario games most are good where as sonic has the most BORING GAMES EVER

But Sonic Boom is awful and there are more bad Sonic games. - computerfan0

The only bad sonic games are:sonic 06, sonic boom,a rpg sonic game (i don't remember the game) and that's it...people saying sonic games bad just because someone say it sucks so everone saying his games sucks even if they didn't try the game like sonic adventures when its at first came out everone saying its good now they say its sucks for no reason(its MY opinion,not 100% sure,sorry for bad english,and yes I am a sonic fan)

12 Sonic Has More Annoying Characters

Have you seen Peach fight in Smash Bros.!?

This is true. (but peach and baby Mario is on the same level) - idontknow

Amy really gets on my nerves sometimes... Lol

My list in both would be
10:mario jr
6dr egg man
3 victor
2 wario
1 Amy but this is my opinion and for me sonic has way way WAAAY more annoying fans then mario

13 Super Mario 64

Especially the N64 version which is the top 1 best video game in the world since release.

This should be top 1. This is the best Mario game in existence.

Been playing' since I was 3 still can't figure out tiny huge island

Compare sonic 06 to super mario 64 LOL

14 Mario's Been Around Longer

Mario, is about 9 years longer than sonic. - nintendofan126

I am sick of this excuse yes I am a mario fan ( I like sonic also but not that much) but so what it should be that there would have been no sonic, just saying it doesn't whos been around longer.

It does because Sonic fans keep saying that Mario copied Sonic and then us Nintendo fans have to go tell them it's not possible - Katekat123

Doesn't make a difference. - DCfnaf

True - PaperMarioFan

15 Mario is from a better company

Wow so this logic says that because a company is better, the products are better. Okay, we all know Disney is better than DreamWorks, so Chicken Little is better than How to train your Dragon, right? Wrong. This makes no sense. - Drawbox

Nintendo is the best game company in the world! Search in Google if you don't believe me.

I had a Nintendo when I was a kid I loved it

Nintendo is my favorite video game company. Can't get enough of them. loved everything I played from them. Nintendo gets a 10/10 mastery rating

16 Mario Can Be Fun for All Ages

Both games are for older kids, adults and elderly people

My mom dad brothers sister and all my friend (most of them) love Mario

And sonic one of the games is either for the very young or the very old it's never for old

17 Sonic has terrible TV shows

I mean, they did a show off a terrible game series! (Sonic Boom, & now every character looks very crappy)

Agreed. The Super Mario bros super show is heck compared to the adventures of sonic the hedgehog.

The adventures of Sonic the hedgehog sucked. Mario Bros super show is better. - TheQ

Yeah. I especially hate what they did to Knuckles in Sonic Boom. He's so stupid it's irritating.

Both suck but mario is better

18 Mario has better final boss music

Look up NSMBU final boss music on YouTube. That should be more than enough.

In the Final M&L 3
Final Boss Phase 2 M&L 5 NSMB Series
The Shadow Queen Phase 2 PM TTYD
Final Bower Battle PM
Adventures End M&L 4
Baby Bowser YI
Bowser's Road SMB Series

19 Mario is more recognized by people

Of course he is he gets like 3 or 4 games a year when sonic only gets one horrible one

Everyone sure has heard about him (not people who died under 1981

Every one I know knows Mario.

True this no one in youtube ever plays sonic games but they play mario maker mario run mario 3DS unfair mario I don't see any sonic
