10 Reasons Why Mario Is Better Than Sonicnintendofan126
The Top Ten
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. - Gamer33SubZero
Speed is not everything
Even though I love Sonic more. That is true.
Mario saved the industry! - MarioMaster10143 Comments
Chill bro, you're just imitating them so chill bro! - Gamer33SubZero
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.
MarioFan chill out god you is making us mario fans look like competely jerks
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.
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 Bros is the best
Super Mario Odeyssey is one of the greatest video games of all time and that is much better than Sonic 06!
Mario Party 9 is the best game ever! - MarioMaster10136 Comments
Sonic: (dies in background)
Mario: It's a-me! Mario! - OnyxtheOcelot
Whenever I play sonic lost world, I have to hear that stupid voice!
Only in schoolhouse - myusernameisthis
Sonic mother be like: sonic why can't you be a dear like Mario and shut up22 Comments
How does that effect the gameplay?
Most of this is just some opinions slapped on here like "mario has better games"
That effects the gameplay of The games? I guess if I drew fanart of Ocarina of time it would be the worst game ever? - B1ueNew
How does this affect the games? - iliekpiez22 Comments
Actually, he does. They both do.
Does not affect the game series itself - iliekpiez
Don't give those 34-year-old couch potatoes who live in their mom's basement any ideas! - BeatlesFan1964

How is sonic x perverted? - Nateawesomeness7 Comments
Sonic is aimed at adults
Yes both Mario and sonic are kids games
Mario people need to be 6 to play it while sonic people need to be 10 or 12 to play it
Way better. There are even educational Mario games. - MarioMaster10127 Comments
Mario abuses Yoshi in every Mario game but he's better than Sonic?
Also,Sonic didn't abuse Tails,Tails wasn't paying attention and got shot.
Mario hasn't abused yosht?!? #smm#smm3ds#smm2 - will_smm2
And Mario didn't abused Yoshi?! - RoKun
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. - Devlinjustus23 Comments
Both are terrible. - 80sGreatestOffice
Both series’s had bad games, but if you compare the franchises, then Sonic has had more bad games.
Mario has bad games too... But sonics games are worst! - nintendofan126
Ugh, I bet a Classic Sonic Fan put this up. - MasterCreepy13 Comments
If we counted spin offs and every minor character and major Mario character then Mario would have over 100,000 characters. - MarioMaster101
Actually, not counting spin-off characters and crossovers (Donkey Kong and stuff) Sonic has 31 official characters and Mario has 30. Super close though! - RosalinaX
I said not counting cross over characters and characters that only appeared once. - RosalinaX
So... how does this make Mario better? - MasterCreepy
A series having a bigger roster doesn't automatically make it better. - Jasmine2106417 Comments
It so much better it is a classic like banjo and kazooie
Sonic 3D Blast and Sonic Adventure are better than Super Mario 64.
Super Mario 64 is better than Sonic Adventure. - MarioMaster101
What does this have to do with Mario being better than Sonic? - RadioHead0311 Comments
Sonic ripped it off then. That makes Sonic racing bad. - MarioMaster101
And Power Drift came out before Super Mario Kart, so? - RadioHead03
Sonic Star Racing sucked. Just by looking at it you know it's crap. - RosalinaX
Mario Kart 8 is God compared to Sonic Free Riders9 Comments
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. - MarioMaster101
No Sonic can't swin at all
That's only in Sonic CD Qryzx.
At least Sonic can RUN! - B1ueNew4 Comments
Like me! Mario is also more popular so that's another reason why. - MarioMaster101
Duh! Obviously Mario has more fans than that stupid annoying hedgehog! - Princesslibby2006
Pokemon and Mario punches sonic sonic fainted
You earned to level 9-1, you gained 100000000 points
And The fanbase is cancer. - Drawbox
Did you know that Sonic is one of the worst fandoms/canvases out there? Mario is considered as not one of the worst2 Comments
This is so dumb Sonic has way better final boss music. - TheDarkOne_221b
Oh don't forget yoshis island... (first one) it has the BEST final boss music ever!
Look up NSMBU final boss music on YouTube. That should be more than enough.
Okay this is just daft, I can’t defend Mario on this. When it comes to music, Mario is just completely irrelevant. The only final boss theme that’s actually memorable from Mario is Bowser’s inside Story’s final battle.
You can’t compare them. Sonic unleashed final boss? Sonic 06 final boss? Sonic Forces final boss? Sonic generations final boss? Why don’t you search those up and tell me if Mario has better music.
Yeah, I cannot tolerate any. - iliekpiez
Help me mario I am being kidnapped again for the 37248932412367th time please save me
I think my work here is done. - MasterCreepy
Amy really gets on my nerves sometimes... Lol
Have you seen Peach fight in Smash Bros.!?12 Comments
Cooler way he's stuff and fly can tails No
Cause green is better than yellow
No, They Both Rocks, But I Hate Sonic & His Friends. Mario & Tails Rocks!
I agree, but do you have to put a capital at the beginning of every letter?
For sure! - MarioMaster10125 Comments
Mario saved more then the industry, he saved the UNIVERSE! - MarioMaster101
In Sonic Generations, Sonic saves space and even time itself. - MasterCreepy
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.6 Comments
Coins equal money even in the real world! - MarioMaster101
JUST SAY I HATE SONIC I DO
In super Mario Odyssey Rings are better than coins But I do agree coins are better than rings
Actually, TheDarkOne_221b, if you collect 100 coins you get a life. Get your facts straight. - RosalinaX8 Comments
Hotel Mario is better than Splatoon then, OK. - Qryzx
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. - DCfnaf5 Comments
Mario is even more iconic then Mickey Mouse, a study found. - MarioMaster101
Mario is plump
Mario was known more then mickey and bugs bunny just like mickey is for Disney shrek is for dream works it's mario for Nintendo and mario is more popular then sonic
Mario is the Mickey Mouse of Nintendo - Randomator5 Comments
Nintendo's the GOD of gaming. - MarioMaster101
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.
Mario is better than Sonic but when Pokémon came out then Pokémon was the most popular game that relased in Japan. You know Pokemon have lots of shirts like many pikachu shirts
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. - RosalinaX
Sonic fanboy probably put this up - MasterCreepy
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!19 Comments
Mario Fangirls - MasterCreepy
I can't stand it!
I connot stand Sonic Fangirls! - nintendofan126
Every Mario RPG game was amazing! Unlike sonic, he had only 1 RPG game. And it was terrible! - nintendofan126
Take Dream team for exsmple. It was awesome I loved antasma.
Mario Party and Mario Kart are amazing for the family! - MarioMaster101
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. - RosalinaX
So can Sonic - B1ueNew
Okay? So can Sonic?
GameGrumps had fun with Sonic games. - MasterCreepy
Sanic exists. - MasterCreepy
A dead meme 8 metres underneath the earth makes Sonic more recognisable?
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 19814 Comments
Which means Nintendo's nicer to Luigi then Sega is to Tails. - MarioMaster101
Mario at least let his brother have 5 games, unlike Sonic who only let his poorest pal have only 2 games.
The reason why certain Mario games like Luigi's Mansion and Captain Toad Treasure Tracker and certain Sonic games like Shadow the Hedgehog and Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine exists is mainly because of Nintendo and Sega, not Mario and Sonic. - Jasmine21064
Mario is a lot more nicer to Luigi than Sonic to Tails4 Comments
"Just better" - MarioMaster101
Saying that Mario's just better than Sonic shows that you like Mario more than Sonic for no reason.
Also, this shouldn't even be on this list in the first place. Why? Not only is the item literately just a nickname for this list's title but it's also technically not even a reason. This item doesn't prove anything nor does it even give why someone would think that Mario is better than Sonic, ultimately making this a terrible item for this list.
I hope whoever put this on this list would understand my comment about why I don't like this item. - Jasmine21064
yes - DensestPotato
Uh, this is what this list is about: WHY he's better.5 Comments
Bowser's WAY better then Dr.Eggman. - MarioMaster101
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.
Haha lol Mario would be pwned against Perfect Chaos, Finalhazard, Solaris/Mephiles, Dark Gaia, and even the Time Eater and Infinite. Especially Metal Sonic.
Sonic however, would probably be too fast for Mario villains and own them, even Bowser. - MasterCreepy
Especially the M&L series. Cackletta, Princess Shroob, Fawful and Antasma were all great well-developed villains.8 Comments
A lot which I said in the "Mario has better villians" one. - MarioMaster101
I think that Bowser is much better. Bowser nearly conquered the universe twice!
Bowser relies on his loyal soldiers rather than some robotic insects. Bowser isn't heartless like Eggman too. Bowser cares for Bowser. Jr.
At least Eggman doesn't capture a princess 5 times a second. And eggman's actually smart I am sorry bra you are actually wrong yes eggman used to be my favorite sonic character in sonic adventure 2 but not anymore to prove you're wrong listen to 2 things number 1. you say he was smart then why is he such a retard in adventures of sonic the hedgehog? 2. "Eggman doesn't capture a princess 5 times a second" bra have you played sonic 06.9 Comments
...who cares? - RadioHead03
Older =/= Better - Jasmine21064
Yes he has 10 years longer5 Comments
You're to slow Sonic! - MarioMaster101
That theory has been debunked. Also, it was JUST A THEORY to begin with.
Yah and in rio Olympus you can see mario catching up with sonic in a race most sonic fans think sonic is better then mario because he is faster I wonder what they think now
That's right! It was proven in sonics height that he was slower than Mario!13 Comments
I think that's their attempt to model Sonic like the modern teenager. Knowing this, and knowing that I'm a teenager, I'm really ticked off!
Who cares if Sonic saved the world? Mario saved like 1,000,000,000,000 universes in Super Paper Mario.
That I strongly agree with. See the ninth episode of Sonic X.
I heard sonics so stupid he stays up all night to catch some sleep6 Comments
Rosalina watches over the GALAXY! - MarioMaster101
Sonic is blue Boom
STOP! I like them both don't ruin it for me - RosalinaX
Yah it does Rosalina is a mario characters3 Comments
One who's not an annoying creepy stalker
Peach is better then Amy Rose. - MarioMaster101
This may sound weird but I think they are a cute couple, I mean he would save her from a combination of a turtle, dragon, ox monster, just for her, what has sonic done for amy, nothing only saved her once, to be honest I think that mario and amy would be a cute couple, bestiality, you think, I don't care, does mario look, like a human to you, kind off, I bet that he can make her not annoying she was kind of cute in sonic x, but forget about that, what I am saying is that if mario would slay a demon like creature, travel through his brothers dreams, or travel through the universe, for her, then that is true love.
Mario has a sweet girlfriend. There is nothing wrong with that.6 Comments
Nintendo is WAY better than Sonic! - MarioMaster101
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.7 Comments
I remember that moment from Archie when Sonic made Tails cry :'(
Mario, on the other hand, is good to his brother Luigi.
At least sonic the hedgehog has drama, tragedy and emotional moments when has Mario ever had that?
There is even a comic called sonic and tails friends no more!4 Comments
Sonic was great but now he is just mediocre character and Mario rules..
Really fun! - MarioMaster101
Mario has good franchise but sonic franchise was good but not really as good as mario franchise when I was 6 years old I played mario everyday and everynight and when I was 7 years old I played sonic games but I didn't like some of their games like sonic 06 or sonic boom but when I became 11 years old I remember that mario has better games and had a better franchise compared to sonic franchise
The Mario franchise revolves around actual gameplay more than the plot/story. - Qryzx4 Comments
Sonic is 25 years old... - RadioHead03
Mario and Sonic games are aimed at kids and preteens. Not a lot of them are mature YET. Sonic is more relatable (slightly) than Mario.
This shows that Mario is more wise than that pathetic whiny immature rat
Older = wiser. Mario is smarter than sonic!6 Comments
I love red
YES! - MarioMaster101
Opinion. Also, nothing to do with the topic. - MasterCreepy
Pokemon Red is better than Pokemon blue if you remembered as a kid3 Comments
Tails is so lame! This reason should be much higher!
Tails isn't annoying. Even a mario fan like me can agree on that. - RosalinaX
How is tails annoying though? , Tails is cool - B1ueNew
If u think Tails is annoying. Peach is more annoying.4 Comments
Especially Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars, Paper Mario: Sticker Star's predecessors and Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story's predecessors. - The Ultimate Daredevil
MY FAVORITE RPG OF ALL TIME IS M&L DREAM TEAM
sucked. - MarioMaster101
Well this is unfair. - MasterCreepy
This game is a disgrace to the sonic franchise! - nintendofan126
No, Although Sonic 06 is bad it still has redeeming qualities, y'all guys need to pay attention to Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric, that game was critically panned by critics and it is a disgrace for the Sonic Franchise7 Comments
This is EXACTLY like youtube, I love how people make a certain topic like this, and people talk about stuff that have NOTHING to do with the topic. - GamingGoku757
Mario has way better music than Sonic for almost 25 years Sonic fanboy.
Man sonic still has better music than Mario and had this for almost 25 years. Even sonic2006 had better music than some great sonic games
Mario has way better music than Sonic for 30 years and that's a fact. Sonic 06 music is boring. - TheQ
This has nothing to do with the music7 Comments
Shut the hell up @Jasmine21064. The newdesign was disgusting, and if you can't see how a design change that turned the course of Sonic's design forever, than your not a true sonic fan. I personally love Mario better, but this is just stupid. - RosalinaX
Sega didn't In fact, they didn't even make the Sonic Boom series. Do you guys even do your research? I bet a Sonic Fanboy put this up. - MasterCreepy
Uh you guys do realize Sonic Boom wasn't created by Sega. - MasterCreepy
Forgive me with the big long school project essay here. If someone asked me if I grew up with Classic Sonic or Modern Sonic, I'd say Classic, even if I'm way too young to be a millennial. The very first game I played was a collection of Sonic Classic games. ALL 90'S! SONIC BOOM REDESIGN RUINED MY CHILDHOOD!
"SONIC BOOM REDESIGN RUINED MY CHILDHOOD! "
First off, calm down.
Second off, your childhood must be fragile since you let a mediocre design of a fictional character ruin it. - Jasmine21064
Sonic 06 SUCKS! Most Mario 3d games are actually pretty fun! - MarioMaster101
Agreed. I love Super Mario 3D land
This is supper true I just love 3d mario game
All sonic has is sonic and sega all stars oh god I'm too slow Mario is faster than me have y'all seen Mario oddsey. - Mariofan
Second time, it really must be bad
Princess Peach and Toad aren't annoying? I can name one annoying Sonic character. CHARMY
Daisy is extremely annoying.
But I like the other characters. - PaperMarioFan
Sonic - An arrogant egotistical idiot that wants all the glory to himself.
Amy - An emotional clingy brat that doesn’t care about anything but Sonic.
Tails - He’s okay, but he acts kind of dumb in Sonic Boom.
Knuckles - He’s also okay, but he becomes really dumb in Sonic Boom (worse than Tails).
Shadow - An emo that’s too obsessed with Maria’s death and wants to destroy people. I get it that Maria was his close friend, but dude chill out.
Eggman - Builds a bunch of useless pathetic robots instead of actually being smart like Bowser and getting some good REAL minions.
That's NOT a good reason AT ALL. That's just a completely awful one-sided statement that mainly exist just to bash on a small specific part of a whole. Why do I believe that it's not a good reason to begin with? Well, for two reasons:
1. Not liking a specific character (especially if he's/she's/it's not the main character) doesn't make a whole series/game bad, especially if the series/game has a big roster.
2. It doesn't prove anything about a series being worse than another series since ANY character can be in someone's best/worse characters list, even the most beloved. - Jasmine21064
Eh, not really. Other than Sonic X. - Qryzx
Stop hating Princess Peach! It's getting annoying! - Mranonymously
*Peach is stupid.
At least Amy TRIES to find a way out and fights back on most occasions. Peach just stands there like a lunatic waiting to be kidnapped and saved by Mario. - MasterCreepy
Lunatic: a mentally ill person.
... Yeah, that's Amy (she swings her hammer at random people, at least Peach being idle is PIS). - Qryzx
