10 Reasons Why Mario Is Better Than Sonic

The Top Ten

1 Without Mario There Would Be No Sonic

Mario saved the gaming industry. Without Mario the game industry would be dead.

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

True because Sonic is in Sega and Mario is in Nintendo. But Sega stopped making consoles so Nintendo payed Sega for Sonic, or Sonic won't exist if Nintendo didn't pay for Sonic.

I prefer Sonic, but this is true, we couldn't have Sonic without Mario

2 Sonic fans are annoying

Go watch top 10 gaming's reason why mario is better than sonic and mario vs sonic death battle 2018 before read the comment section and think again! Sonic fans are way more annoying! In fact, sonic is not perfect compare to mario.

Well technically Mario fans are annoying too but at least they know the problems with Mario games, Sonic Fans just treat every sonic game like they are great. Sonic fans just wanna make reasons why Mario sucks just so they could teach people that mocking Mario fans are okay.

I'm more of a sonic fan myself and I do have to agree with this one.

The sonic fan base is toxic but the reason for that is because we care about him and we want him to have the best games possible.

not every franchise is perfect of course but I think people are like that becasue they care, I mean if they didn't then they wouldn't say a thing right?

Mario for me isn't that great and the main reason for that is because ya know, you play a game, you finish it, and then you play the Classic Sonic games for the rest of the day.

mario is just boring: same games, same controls, same feelings, same power ups, same characters. there is nothing new here.

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!

3 Mario Has Better Games

While Sonic has some decent games, they're just decent. I will heavily doubt that any Sonic the Hedgehog game will get any closer to a 10, unlike Mario who is doing with almost every new release at this point.

Super Mario Odeyssey is one of the greatest video games of all time and that is much better than Sonic 06!

Sonic has had a decade of bad games starting with sonic 06. The last good sonic game is mania (sonic team didn't even make it! ) and that was nostalgia based. I'm not sure if sonic can make a good game anymore without it having to be nostalgia from the sonic trilogy on the genesis. On the other hand, Mario has been proving to not come to an end with his latest game, super Mario odyssey. Mario will probably last for another hundred years!

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

4 Sonic Has an Annoying Voice

Whenever I play sonic lost world, I have to hear that stupid voice!

Mario franchise is the best but no sonic does not have annoying voice he is still the coolest.

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

Sonic doesn't even have parents. He was adopted by that owl character in the movie and was raised by her until she got killed.

That's not necessarily a good reason.

His voice in the old cartoon looks annoying enough but nowadays his voice is getting better.

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.

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.

That effects the gameplay of The games? I guess if I drew fanart of Ocarina of time it would be the worst game ever?

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

6 Mario Doesn't Have a Perverted Anime Fandom

Um, excuse me? People sexualize Peach, Daisy, Rosalina, Pauline, Waluigi, Wario, Birdo, etc.

Actually, he does. They both do.

Does not affect the game series itself

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

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

7 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

Mario people need to be 6 to play it while sonic people need to be 10 or 12 to play it

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

I am biggest fan of pokemon and mario and sonic. Their all amazing but obviously pokemon beats it all with the booming biggest media franchise in the world (undying)

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

8 Sonic Abused Tails In Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Remember, Donkey Kong Jr and Donkey Kong Circus exist (Mario abuses Donkey Kong, his son and other animals in those games).

Proof that sonic is not a hero

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.

He let tails drown, like 100 times!

9 Sonic Has More Bad Games

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

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

Ugh, I bet a Classic Sonic Fan put this up.

Both have bad games but Sonic has more

10 Mario has more characters

If we counted spin offs and every minor character and major Mario character then Mario would have over 100,000 characters.

Mario has way! More characters...

Actually, not counting spin-off characters and crossovers (Donkey Kong and stuff) Sonic has 31 official characters and Mario has 30. Super close though!

Yeah yeah sonic fans would say anything to get sonic up but guess what mario saved your pal.

Sonic has more characters. They are stupid except Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy.

The Contenders

11 Mario can swim unlike Sonic

Sonic is weak in water. But Mario swims in it like a pro in a lot of games. Only in some games Mario has a health meter in Mario like Sonic.

True this and you don't see mark fans saying mario is better then sonic because mario can swim but you d see a lot of sonic fans saying sonic is better then mario because sonic is fast

Sonic can run on water unlike Mario.

At least Sonic can RUN!

Sonic can only run and roll. Mario is a plumber he at least got a job title.

12 Mario has better final boss music

This is so dumb Sonic has way better final boss music.

This I agree that sonic does have better music and sound tracks, Mario still in its classic sound tracks but that's what keeps the franchise going.

this list is worse than why sonic is better

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

Oh don't forget yoshis island... (first one) it has the BEST final boss music ever!

13 Super Mario 64

Sonic 3D Blast and Sonic Adventure are better than Super Mario 64.

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

You're probably just a Sonic hater and Mario lover

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

14 Sonic Has More Annoying Characters

Amy was made to be sonics equivalent of peach, that's why she gets captured by eggman in half the games shes in.
So what amy has a hammer while peach could use marios powerups to.
Amy also has to threaten any living creature that likes sonic.

Have you seen Peach fight in Smash Bros.!?

Amy really gets on my nerves sometimes... Lol

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

15 Mario has more fans

Like me! Mario is also more popular so that's another reason why.

Agreed everyone knows Mario. Sonic is known but not popular as Mario even grandpa's will know who is Mario

Pokemon and Mario punches sonic sonic fainted

You earned to level 9-1, you gained 100000000 points

Nope pokemon might be the biggest franchise in the world but the only reason sonic came is because of Mario they are rivals from day 1.

And The fanbase is cancer.

Did you know that Sonic is one of the worst fandoms/canvases out there? Mario is considered as not one of the worst

Duh! Obviously Mario has more fans than that stupid annoying hedgehog!

16 Mario Kart Came Out Before Sonic and Sega All Star Racing

Mario Kart 8 is God compared to Sonic Free Riders

True. Mario kart first came out for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Sonic racing game came out 30 years later, Mario came out in 1985 but before him it was his father AKA " Jump-man " for the arcade games Donkey Kong, DK 2, and DK jr which on jr he tried to electrocute a baby monkey to save Cranky Kong the first kong, and Mario the plummer is not like his father, but Mari fans know that Sonic doesn't run at the speed of sound, just compare how fast both of them ran at their first game. Mario first game is Super Mario Bros and Sonic well I don't know.

Hm... more like, Sega All-Junk Racing!

I may love Mario Kart more than all Sonic racing games, but because Mario Kart is older doesn't automatically mean it's better. Just saying.

17 Luigi is better than Tails

No, They Both Rocks, But I Hate Sonic & His Friends. Mario & Tails Rocks!

They both amazing but I think tails is better than Luigi for being a supporting character.

So true tails is just the perfect smart guy who is so perfect which is kinda boring but Luigi on the other hand you can relate to him sometimes stupid sometimes scared he also has his best moments I love Luigi.

So true Luigi is way better than tails. He is way stronger and not as annoying

Luigi is my favourite character in smash bros but he is not good as tails.

Tails is just a geek but Luigi can actually fight unlike that orange flying nerd

18 Coins are better than rings

Coins would actually make you look rich. Rings would make you look like you married and divorced 1,000,000 giants, and the rings are your wedding rings.

Coins are so useless. How are they better than rings that help you stay alive? This list is almost as dumb as the other one.

True, a gold coin is better than a stupid plastic ring painted gold

This shows why comparing lists are dumb.

In super Mario Odyssey Rings are better than coins But I do agree coins are better than rings

19 Sonic saves the world but Mario in Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, he saves more than the world, he saves the whole universe

Don't forget Super Paper Mario! At least 3 universe saves now...

Super Mario galaxy, super Mario galaxy 2, paper Mario the thousand year door, super paper Mario even yoshi's new island they save time and space from bowser. so now sonic sonic 06? sonic generations does colors even count so mario wins don't worry I like them both but it is true no offense sonic fans, but they are in different universes so time only matters in there universe.

If you play any paper Mario games or Mario galaxy games, Mario does save the universe from the clutches of Bowser.

In Sonic Generations, Sonic saves space and even time itself.

20 Sonic has terrible TV shows

I'll admit that I am a HUGE fan of Mario But the super Mario bros super show was horrible the super Mario bros 3 show was even worse the super Mario world show was not as bad sonic boom was kinda good old sonic cartoon was bad Sonic X is my 10th favorite show of all time so sonic is better in T.V. shows but Mario is still WAY better

I'm a Mario fan, so of course you'd think I'd diss Sonic. But in my defense, I tried watching the Sonic Boom show and cringed so hard my eyes hurt. Knuckles looked and acted stupid, Shadow was... um... crazy, and the voice-acting is kinda crappy. Just saying.

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

Like in sonic boom. I really hate what they did to shadow. He used to be a ally? But now he's a crazy freak who only cares about revenge!

21 Mario's Been Around Longer

Mario, is about 9 years longer than sonic.

Doesn't make a difference.

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

Mario's been around since 1987 sonic 1989. BOOM!

22 Mario Is from Nintendo While Sonic Is from Sega

Yes he was. Nintendo is one of the most best selling game companies in the world. Mario, Zelda, Dk, Kirby, Star Fox, Metroid, the list is endless! Sega has their one blue rat who's only ability is going fast and what, three consoles? Mario being made by Nintendo is a big step that put him at the top of the ladder. Plus, Mario revived the gaming industry, bringing forth the existence of sega and sonic. Why, Mario? Now we have to deal with the one of 06 and his other horrible games! Anyone who says Mario has bad games obviously hasn't heard of Sonic Boom.

How this affect the game itself?

You're mentioning the devs now? They just think different.

Nintendo's the GOD of gaming.

23 Mario Can Be Fun for All Ages

That is very true. Most sonic games aren't really for a whole family, but games like Mario Party and Mario Kart you can play with everyone.

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

24 Mario has better RPG games

Every Mario RPG game was amazing! Unlike sonic, he had only 1 RPG game. And it was terrible!

Take Dream team for exsmple. It was awesome I loved antasma.

25 Mario has better villains

Perfect chaos is water, mario can freeze him with an ice flower.
Enough with the stupid mephiles my god nobody cares about the villan of one of the worst video games ever why not just admit that you guys like sonic 2006 if you miss mephiles so freaking much. Rosalina would just kill the time eater if she sees it as a threat, mario could use a super star or his stopwatch.
Infinite makes weak versions of previous villans and their illusions, also if charmy bee can take infinites illusions out than infanite would just be a weak boss fight.
Dark gia and solaris are like the dragon in the lost kingdom sp mario wins for shure.
Mario can power up into metal mario and one shot metal sonic. The deadly six are goombas compared to Mario.

The villains are harder too. Anyone remember the mini-bosses and the boss of Secret Mine in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon? They took me a while to beat.

Actually, bosses in Super Paper Mario take many hits to kill. Plus, the boss battles require strategy.

Yeah, all of Mario's villains die in 1-3-5 hits. And pretty much every villain is Bowser or someone like him.
