10 Reasons Why Mario Is Better Than Sonicnintendofan126
The Top Ten
If Mario hadn't, saved the video game industry's. Then there would be no sonic... - nintendofan126
I prefer Sonic, but this is true, we couldn't have Sonic without Mario
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!
If Sonic looks different then how's he a ripoff? Mario doesn't have the ability to go the speed of light. - Qryzx
Because System Of A Down...just kidding but System of a Down is badassV 23 Comments
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!
Sonic would be better if he hadn't this fanbase - ShahryRKnoT
Not all Sonic fans are. Plus, annoying Mario fans exist. - Jasmine21064
Mario fans are WAY more annoying. They get butthurt over anyone not giving any 3D Mario platformer a perfect 10. And they make bowsette. - B1ueNewV 27 Comments
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
One of the reasons why you don't like Sonic is because others do? That's a crappy reason. - Jasmine21064
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.
Super Mario World<the entire sonic trilogy
Super Mario 64<Sonic Adventure
Super Mario Sunshine<sonic adventure 2 (not by much though)
Super Mario Galaxy<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<sonic 06
Super Mario 3D world<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<sonic boom
Super Mario Odyssey<Sonic Mania<<<<<<sonic forces
Now don't get me wrong. Sonic has had some great games like Generations and Colors. But Mario has more and better games.
Sonic mother be like: sonic why can't you be a dear like Mario and shut up
His voice in the old cartoon looks annoying enough but nowadays his voice is getting better.
That's not necessarily a good reason. - Jasmine21064
Uhh. Sonic's voice is better than Mario's voice. - B1ueNewV 17 Comments
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
That effects the gameplay of The games? I guess if I drew fanart of Ocarina of time it would be the worst game ever? - B1ueNewV 19 Comments
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
Does not affect the game series itself - iliekpiezV 7 Comments
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
Bowsette is not at all "for kids" - Maddox121V 18 Comments
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
How did he abuse him - B1ueNewV 19 Comments
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
Both have bad games but Sonic has more - Randomator
Sonic games only work in 2D. Super Mario games work in both 2D and 3D - BrunorskV 10 Comments
Mario has way! More characters... - nintendofan126
Sonic has more characters. They are stupid except Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy.
Mario has more characters.
So... how does this make Mario better? - MasterCreepyV 15 Comments
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. - Jasmine21064V 7 Comments
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
Yeah, I cannot tolerate any. - iliekpiezV 12 Comments
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. - MasterCreepy
At least Sonic can RUN! - B1ueNew
Mario can slide on water with a penguin suit in New Super Mario Brothers Wii.
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
I recommend watching a bit of a walkthrough to get a better idea of what it is. It was a good game for its time and introduced the Mario Franchise to 3D games. I have the DS remake of it and its great.
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 worst
Duh! Obviously Mario has more fans than that stupid annoying hedgehog! - Princesslibby2006
I’ll take Mario, Pokemon and Legend Of Zelda over Sonic the Hedgehog any day. Hell I might be the minority but Rayman, Star Fox, Banjo Kazooie, Conker, Devil May Cry, Spyro the Dragon, Crash Bandicoot, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Sly Cooper, Ratchet and Clank And Jak And Daxter are more enjoyable than Sonic but that is just my humble opinion. Hell I'm not even as crazy for Ratchet and Clank nowadays like I was when I was 14 or 15.V 1 Comment
This is so dumb Sonic has way better final boss music. - TheDarkOne_221b
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
So you're not going to consider the final boss music for Sonic? What a pointless comment.
You probably haven't heard final boss music from pretty much any canon Sonic game. That's why you didn't include anything Sonic in there. - MasterCreepy
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
I may be more of a Mario fan than a Sonic fan, but I can't agree with this item. Why? Because older doesn't [always] equal better. - Jasmine21064V 4 Comments
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.
Don't forget Super Paper Mario! At least 3 universe saves now...
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. - MasterCreepyV 5 Comments
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!
I mean, they did a show off a terrible game series! (Sonic Boom, & now every character looks very crappy)
Sonic fanboy probably put this up - MasterCreepyV 17 Comments
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. - TheDarkOne_221b
In super Mario Odyssey Rings are better than coins But I do agree coins are better than rings
True, a gold coin is better than a stupid plastic ring painted gold
Terrible reason, and nothing to do with the topic. - MasterCreepyV 5 Comments
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
So can Sonic - B1ueNewV 8 Comments
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
Well I do see him when I see Nintendo.
Mario became so iconic, that kids didn't know who bugs bunny, and Mickey mouse we're. - nintendofan126
Mario is the Mickey Mouse of Nintendo - RandomatorV 3 Comments
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.
A dead meme 8 metres underneath the earth makes Sonic more recognisable?
Mario Fangirls - MasterCreepy
I can't stand it!
I connot stand Sonic Fangirls! - nintendofan126
Mario fans bash people who prefer Sonic.
Luigi fanboys hate Mario and Luigi fangirls hate Daisy because she's Luigi's love interest as DaisyandRosalina mentioned. They hate Rosalina too because some ship her with Luigi.
Waluigi fans are true toxic. They hate Daisy and Rosalina for being more relevant than he is.
Daisy fans hate any female Mario character. They constantly started the Daisy vs Rosalina war in the first place. They bully Rosalina and Peach fans.
Yoshi fans will hate anyone who doesn't like Yoshi.
Rosalina fans are perverts that fap to her 24/7 and hate Daisy because they think she's ugly.
Koopaling fans are jealous of Bowser Jr.
Toadette fans hate Daisy and Wario.
Peach fans (some) hate Rosalina because she's stealing her spot when she isn't and hate mostly Daisy for being her ugly clone when she isn't. - ParkerFang
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.
Apparently makes Mario better.
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
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.
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.
Especially the M&L series. Cackletta, Princess Shroob, Fawful and Antasma were all great well-developed villains.V 7 Comments
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 can be badass.
Luigi sucks. Tails is way better because he's smart and just like Ratchet, who is way better than dumb Luigi. - TheDarkOne_221bV 15 Comments
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
I tested it myself game theory is correct, mario's faster
That's right! It was proven in sonics height that he was slower than Mario!V 12 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.
This is trueV 6 Comments
Mario is a lot more nicer to Luigi than Sonic to Tails
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
Super luigi u luigi's mansion 1 and 2 eta
Mario has given some of his friends sequels:
Luigi - Mario is Missing, Luigi Mansion, Luigi Mansion 2: Dark Moon, Mario and Luigi: Dream Team, New Super Luigi U, Luigi Bros(Super Mario 3D World), Super Luigi Bros(NES Remix 2) and Dr. Luigi,
Toad - Captain Toad Treasure Tracker
Peach - Super Princess Peach
Yoshi - Yoshi’s Island series
What does Sonic give? Let’s see:
Tails - has like one game which was a disaster
Shadow - has a game that involved lots of guns and violence, so it’s not good for little children at all
See? Sonic hates it, look at Sonic Lost World! He hates it when others get the glory which is why there are only two other games that he gave to his friends
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.
Bowser has good minions, unlike Eggman who just makes a bunch of stupid robots that always fail and are never menacing. If Eggman really was smart, he would stop making a bunch of robots and get some good minions like Bowser.
Yeah but Eggman is freak en stupid and never learns his lesson about stop doing world domination
Yea but Bowser is freak en stupid and never learns his lesson about stop Peach kidnapping - MasterCreepy
Bowser relies on his loyal soldiers rather than some robotic insects. Bowser isn't heartless like Eggman too. Bowser cares for Bowser. Jr.V 8 Comments
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.
Mario is actually okay with the fact peach is right next to him, but sonic runs away. Coward
I don't like Peach but she is sweet - yunafreya648V 4 Comments
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
Uh, this is what this list is about: WHY he's better.
I see you are out of reasons, not that any of them were valid.
� That's Biased, Filler, and Bullcrap at the same time.
Biased because you don't give reason,
Filler because it doesn't give facts,
and Bullcrap because it gives no defense and is utterly useless. - Qryzx
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 ratingV 5 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?
Evidence? - ParkerFangV 3 Comments
If u think Tails is annoying. Peach is more annoying.
Tails isn't annoying, really, but Amy is
So what if you can fly tails I DON'T CARE!
How is tails annoying though? , Tails is cool - B1ueNewV 2 Comments
Yes he has 10 years longer
Well sonic has been around longer than shadow, but shadow is still more popular so...
Yes and sega had nothing to do for the *cough cough* leader
Older =/= Better - Jasmine21064V 3 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
Settle argument 16bit goes to mario, yes I have listen to chemical plant, but compare to mario bros 2 theme, early 2000s goes to sonic, rock music rocks, wii, tie I like both, modern, goes to mario. so mario wonV 7 Comments
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
When I first got the news, I felt pathetic. I knew Sonic since Adventure, and after all this time, they're changing everything? It's not nostalgic anymore.
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. - MasterCreepyV 7 Comments
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
At least there is no Mario game where Mario kills himself when you stand still for a long time.
At least there is no Mario game where Mario kills animals from sky chase zone. - TheQ
Mario is awesome, sonic is terrible. No further question
There NEEDS to be further questions.
By the way, why do you believe this? - Jasmine21064
The Mario franchise revolves around actual gameplay more than the plot/story. - Qryzx
Yes further question.
Why is Mario awesome but sonic terrible?
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.
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.
How does that make Mario better?
This shows that Mario is more wise than that pathetic whiny immature rat
So? - MasterCreepyV 6 Comments
Pokemon Red is better than Pokemon blue if you remembered as a kid
Opinion. Also, nothing to do with the topic. - MasterCreepy
Mario is red. Boom

Yah it does Rosalina is a mario characters
Apparently makes Mario better.
Bout the same to be honest
Why compare her to Blaze? - ParkerFang
They are both really strong and powerful, so why not? Rosalina can beat all the Sonic characters in one shot no problem!V 1 Comment
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
All Peach does is say, "Mario! Help me! " and get captured all the time. Amy is a playable character, rarely ever gets captured, etc.
At least she doesn't get captured every game unlike Peach and Amy should be in Smash not Peach.
Stop hating Princess Peach! It's getting annoying! - MranonymouslyV 10 Comments
Mario games are mostly classic feeling, but Sonic's games were only classic before the jump to 3D. Mario jumped to 3D but Super Mario 64 was amazing still and was VERY Classic
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
Actually, Sonic Riders is a great, underrated racing game that is loads of fun. It also has a story. Mario Kart has zero stories. You just...win.
By the way Mario rids karts so they don't run on gas
Sonic just copied Mario.
Why would they make a sonic racing game the original game gear it is a copy and paste of mario kart that is not fun. also sonic 1 game gear sky base zone is a rip off of the koopaling airships.V 1 Comment
