Top Ten Reasons Why Sonic Is Better Than MarioHere are some reasons why our speedy anthropomorphic hedgehog is cooler than the fat plumber.
The Top Ten
Sonic frees animals from a capsule from the classic sonic games. Also, in lost world. Mario kills a whole bunch of turtle enemies including Bowser in a really lame way for example falling for that trapdoor instant kill.
WELL DONE. This is the top voted answer over why sonic is better than mario it's honestly pathetic. So does this make sonic the best franchise ever. Is zelda rubbish because you kill ganondorf, is skyrim trash because you can become an assassin? Is every game in which you kill people bad? NO. - Justinianism101
Think: Sonic jumps on badniks to FREE the animals. Mario jumps on hypnotized goombas and KILLS them.
Mario is a animal abuser! - kitten2015
I guess this makes Big Rigs: over the road racing better than TLOZ: Ocarina of time because you kill ganon!V 67 Comments
PEACH SHOULD FOUGHT FOR herself, but no the useless character that she is. The many reason most Mario bros are 1/10 from me. They suck! Amy who isn't in smash only have to save her twice. She deserve to be in smash, but no. Whatever Mario been dead since 64!
Has he? The galaxy games and Odyssey were amazing and most of the other games are consistently good. If anything sonic's the dead franchise with so many bad games and a few good ones like mania (which wasn't even made by team sonic). - Justinianism101
Yes. Also, she worth saving she's not in smash bros. Peach you save her tons of time, but she's in smash its not worth it. She's terrible.
Even though Amy isn't exactly Sonic's "girlfriend", she has lots of things that Peach wouldn't even come close to having. Amy can defend herself, while Peach is always in need of saving (Damsel in Distress Cliche). Also, Amy's a joy to listen to because of her comical remarks in past games. Peach basically only says "Mario~! " and "Peachy~! ". To keep it brief, Amy is more of a character than Princess Peach Toadstool will ever be.
Actually no. Peach is underrated, she has more magic than Amy as well.
The only thing Amy Rose is better at than Princess Peach is speed, which Peach is probably studying.
You lie about Peach being rude and bossy to make her look bad on purpose.
Peach saves Mario & Luigi in SPP. She saves Prixies in SM3DW. She heals you in the RPG. Turnips are her projectiles. Sports Equipment, Brawling Techniques, her Crown and her Emotions/Mood Swings
(rage, cry, joy and glee) are all her attacks. She has (a) Toad(s) for (a) shield(s).
Princess Peach is very sweet and (unlike Amy) doesn't chase her Boyfriend 24/7. - Qryzx
Peach isn't as powerful as she seems you know...
Those games were only made to be playable as her.
Plus, you think Toads could protect her from Amy!? You're funny. - MasterCreepy
How does this make sonic better than Mario? - nintendofan126
Mario may have blue trousers, but he's more known for his red hat. Sonic's shoes are red, but he's more known for his speed than his appearance.
So? Mario is much more awesome! Mario has a much better voice than Sonic.
Sorry for adding this. Back then the color red always made me feel angry, but blue made me happier as it's my favorite color.
There is two things wrong with this item,
1.Mario has some blue in his clothes
2.It proves nothing. - MrCoolC
Mario characters often or mostly useless! Dreadful stupidity.
I like sonic more plus with Mario you can only be two people who can do the same thing but in sonic you can be three people that can do different things like knuckles is strong and he can glide and climb and tails can fly.
Sonic, Silver, and Shadow even Tails & Cream have better powers Then those Mario Characters! Mario has a stupid jumping ability while having other powers but one hit no more power, and Sonic is more adventurous.
Agree with this! One of the things I love most about the Sonic series is that the characters carry the story better and have better dialogue. Sonic is enjoyable for all ages due to this whereas Mario (fun though the games may be) can often feel very "kiddy" for lack of a better term, too family friendly and vanilla. Sonic brings more depth, humour and insight to each game plot, it's far more versatile. Also sonic music over mario music anyday!V 28 Comments
Mario is just "SAVE THE PRINCESS! " in almost every single game. Can you be more creative, Nintendo?
Sonic, however, has had MANY MANY plots. From saving animals from an evil genius, to being stuck in time with his younger self! There's a lot of plots, but I'm too lazy to list them.
Yes they can with super mario sports mix, super mario maker, and the smash bros and mario kart series - YOSHIA2121
Sonic has better diversity than Mario. Why? Let me explain.
Sonic saved animals (Sonic the Hedgehog). He has to save the world from the Space Colony (Sonic Adventure 2). He has to team up with his younger self to restore the timeline (Sonic Generations).
Mario, on the other hand, is just him saving the princess who never defends herself. THAT'S IT.
Sonic has himself go through a candy amusement park (Sonic Colors), a city (Sonic Adventure 2), and a PRISON?!
Mario has himself going through grass, desert, tropical island, jungle, snow, mountains, sky, and castle. He has to go through this for multiple games. Doesn't it get repetitive, boring, and uncreative after a while? Yeah, I thought so.
The Mario franchise's plot is actually an insult like Princess Peach, that aggressively annoying blond priss!
Mario actually has lots of variety in games, whoever thought of this reason possibly doesn’t know a lot of Mario games or just hates Mario. Mario and the gang play sports, have party games, do super smash, and even mix it up a little like Super Princess Peach and Mario and Rabbids. They also have a Mario and Luigi series, paper Mario games, Rio Olympics/Winter Olympics, and so much more! So don’t tell me that comparing this to a rat that just runs all the time (which isn’t much of variety at all) isn’t variety!V 28 Comments
You can see Sonic's siblings in the show, Sonic Underground. I don't know if Luigi jumps higher than Sonic. - bugger
Oh wait now I know why sonic is better. BECAUSE HE HAS MORE SIBLINGS. Well, here I was thinking that Mario was good because of the innovative games and fun game play but all the time I was wrong. It's the amount of siblings that make's a game good. If I ever design my own character I'll have to take this to account and give him a million of them - Justinianism101
Sonic doesn't have siblings and sonic underground was not canon
Sonic underground is not canon
That means nothing. And Sonic Underground isn't canon. - DrawboxV 19 Comments
This is interesting because sometimes when I see Peach and Daisy, I think Mario's old, but when I see the Sonic females, it makes me think Sonic is all new
No offense when I said Mario's old
Just because the princesses in Mario wear dresses? Oh sorry, some women like dresses. I'm not one of them, but plenty of them do. - LemonComputer
If you think about it, seeing the girls dress more modern makes them less appealing. In today’s society, we’ve had lots of movies (for example) with hashtags and stupid crap. Am I right? I certainly know that lots of people can agree with me (like the Emoji Movie). So seeing the girls dress more modern scares me because it makes me think that they’ll be stupid hashtag preteens. This is just my opinion, so yea. And besides, seeing the girls dress more like back than (like the old style) makes them more appealing because of the classical feel Mario gives.V 14 Comments
Sonic has the best music in the entire franchise.
That is a weak point. Even non-mario fans could sing along and remember the original theme. And nintendo games altogether has great music. - Justinianism101
Much better soundtrack than Mario which recycles old music. In sonic there is always something
Sonic has the best music I have ever heard
This reason is stupid because it’s more opinion-based than a legit reasonV 31 Comments
I agree. Sonic has more personality than Mario. Mario is just soulless - Chaotixhero
Mario sucks! Sonic rules! - kitten2015
Mario is kind of like must-save-peach all the time. Too soulless.
Sure he does, but it’s a bad one. He’s egotistical, selfish, and arrogant. Mario does have a personality and he doesn’t just save the princess. If people actually paid attention to the games and cutscenes they would see that Mario is sweet and cares for his friends. And Mario isn’t just save-the-princess al the time! Pay attention to the games people!
And btw, it’s a good thing actually that Mario doesn’t talk a lot. This is so because he won’t be able to say stupid remarks like *cough cough* Sonic! Mario is focused on saving the day and that’s why he barely talks. Sonic just blabbers on the whole time, and most of it is either useless, boring, or just plain old crap
The Sonic racing games were completely copied off the Mario racing games. If you love the Sonic racing games, be thankful that the Mario racing games exist. If Mario racing games wouldn't exist, Sega wouldn't have been able to copy the idea. Sega just copies everything Nintendo does but does it so badly that nobody notices. If you're against people who copy other people's games, you're against Sega. If you're for Sega, spend months making a game and let me copy every game you make and form a fanbase to see how you would like it. The racing games is the biggest example of why Sega needs to not exist. Sega should be arrested or severely charged due to copyright laws right now.. - LemonComputer
So you're basing it off a game you haven't played you're doing a contest on a page made by sonic fans so of course it wins hover boards are just stupid Mario kart is better
Sonic and SEGA All Stars Racing vs. Mario Kart Wii:
Sonic and SEGA All Stars Racing wins!
Sega all stars racing is Sega's retarded play off of mario kart. Plus we now have the original mario kart, mario kart 64, mario kart double dash, mario kart wii, mario kart 7, and 8 I think we know who has better racing games. - Katekat123
Even if Mario racing games were never made, Sega would have still made some too. Mario Kart 64 wasn't the first racing game you know... - MasterCreepyV 26 Comments
But unlike the coins, you keep the ring total over 100. And they can protect you from losing a life. Plus, your ring total at the end of each zone can be added to your score. And don't forget the lighting ring dash, which 1st appeared in SONIC ADVENTURE (1998-99).
Mario copied sonic 100 ring gets an extra life in Mario bros.
Super Mario Bros was released in 1983 (1985 on the NES)
Sonic the Hedgehog was released in 1991 - Toab
Not always, Sonic and Sega Ultimate Racing is a rip off of Mario Kart
Didn’t Mario came first? - MrCoolCV 33 Comments
Sonic actually saves the world from disaster, while Mario just chases his girl. You'd think that she'd take self defense classes by now.
"BUT Mario SAVED THE GALAXY! TWICE! "
True, but Sonic also has saved time itself. THREE TIMES.
Sonic did more than Mario, went through different dimensions, went through time multiple times, fought all powerful monsters like bio-lizard and dark gaia, and other stuff that's better than Mario has - jay10
Should Peach be able to help herself now? Why is someone like her in smash if she can't save herself? In super princess peach, she helped fight browser with Mario, but then get kidnapped again, really peach? - jay10
Yeah, now there's something that comes up every, single, almost everyone says all the time time. Sorry for this weird wording, but its well, just think annoying in your head. Add pink, and feminism and girly princess. And what do you get? Toadstupid. Now think cool, awesome, stooky, and fun loving. Add blue and dancer, and modern and heroic. What do you get? Sonic the hedgehog with an attitude to match. He is the best of the best because people want to be like him and so they actually learn to defend themselves. But the Mario characters have to make people depend on them for themselves to be rich. While that's not exactly a bad thing, they are pretty dumb-dumb, which explains why some people might find them funny. Sonic is morally better though.
Sonic and his friends and foes saved the universe in sonic x *dabs*V 32 Comments
Shadow the Hedgehog actually is an award-winning game. Are you sure it sucks? Also, Luigi's Mansion is the only good spinoff of Mario that I could think of.
Mario strikers my favorite mario spinoff.
Mario kart ds is the worst racing game I've ever played! Shadow the hedghog and sa2b is nearly perfect sonic gamecube games.
Again, this is an opinion not a reason
Actually this is a reason.
"Better spin off games" is technically a reason although weak but a reason. - Devlinjustus
Bowser is a terrible excuse for a villain. What does he do with Peach when he kidnaps her? Play Checkers until Mario comes? You'd think after 34 years he'd come up with something new...
Eggman has an IQ of 300, and builds robots, and heck, would even control a creature of darkness that can control time! He uses animals as a power source for his robots. He's a great villain.
Bowser isn't a terrible villain. Eggman fails all of the time. Bowser has better stuff. Eggman didn't do anything to time because that's not canon ether. - TheQ
Do you know whats weird why did they make Bowser talk in super Mario sunshine I meanni don't mine that he talking but the Mario characters never talked which is unlike sonic the hedgehog that is
I wish the Mario characters talked instead of the Sonic characters.
I agree how Eggman is better than Bowser but I am a Mario Player but less Sonic Player because I only got a few of them. Eggman's voice and comedy beats up Bowser so as his fatness. I am still tasting Eggman's voice and and how tall his legs - bugger
Actually Bowser is better. At least he doesn’t make plans for attacks with Mario like Eggman in Sonic Boom with Sonic, so stupid of Eggman to do that first off. And all that Eggman does is build a bunch of stupid robots when Bowser has a variety of minions to help him.
You do know that Bowser's minions fail too, right? Also SONIC BOOM IS NOT CANON. What don't you people understand... - MasterCreepyV 34 Comments
The animated movie of Sonic made in 1996 has him going against Metal Sonic, and it's plot was awesome. The acting was too.
The Super Mario Bros. Super Show or the Super Mario Bros. movie where Princess Daisy is kidnapped by President Koopa?
Because I would give The Super Mario Bros. Super Show a 9.1 score and the Super Mario Bros. movie a 1.7 score.
The sonic the hedgehog movie was amazing and metal sonic was in it I liked every thing in the movie only put sonic and tails voice acting while the Mario movie was like do I have to explain
As if there’s a live action Sonic movie. - MrCoolCV 18 Comments
Sonic cares about all his friends. Mario hits and sacrifices his dino friend in Super Mario World, Grabs his helpers and throws them in a pit of death, and he treats his brother Luigi like dog crap.
Yes. His friends are actually fun to play as in the games. Plus Luigi's the best Mario character, but nobody treats him any good. Mario abuses him, abandon him and even the toads whose more useless than peach abandon luigi.
Sonic is a speedy hedgehog who broke a speed record for fastest thing alive, tails is an engineering fox with 2 tails, and knuckles is an enchinda( Mario fans keep note of that word) who is the last of his kind, living on a island in the sky guarding the ultimate power, I could go on.
This is a very untrue statement. Sonic doesn’t care about his friends as shown in shows like Sonic Boom. He’s a big ego-maniac and only cares about getting the glory for himself! Another thing is that this group of characters is very cliche unlike Mario. Sonic the big egotistical leader, Knuckles is the big dumb guy, Tails is the smart one, Amy is the annoying brat, and Shadow is the emo. Mario characters are more sweet and Mario doesn’t care for the spotlight AT ALLV 10 Comments
I agree. Mario fights Bowser as a final boss in almost EVERY game. - TopTenX
This is cool.
Now it's right! He defeat Dark Gaia,Deadly 6,Time eater and many more. P.S:To Nintendo:
Be more creative guys! don,t stuck in one villian.
For PaperMarioFan: I’m with PaperMarioFan. Search up this website guys:
It tells ALL the villains (big or small) of what Mario fights IN ABC ORDER! So who really fights more? *cough* Mario!
Yea but those bosses would be nothing to Sonic. Sonic would just own them like they were nothing. Even Bowser.
Mario, however, would struggle to even hurt Chaos in his final form or Dark Gaia in his first form! - MasterCreepy
Now this is just ridiculous, find some REAL reasons guys not opinions
Nintendo did not make that cartoon so this does not count
Adventure of sonic sucks som3 is better
Is robotnlik better than Mama Luigi?
The Deadly Six? Pretty decent. Especially that joke about Zazz needing to take a bath.
*eye roll* Opinion!
Honestly, Metal Sonic is the best villan in sonic games. 1: he can go as fast, sometimes faster, than sonic, he is better than shadow, and he turns into a dragon.
Just a few of the legendary villains in Sonic.
Compare the old Super Mario Bros. games to the Sonic games on the SEGA Genesis.
The old Super Mario games get a 7.5 at least and a 9.0 at most.
The SEGA Genesis Sonic the Hedgehog games get an 8.0 at least and a 9.5 at most.
First of all, I would just like to say that I'm not "Nostalgia Biased" or anything, I actually played the original sonic games much more than the original Mario games, but the sonic ones just can't compare. The game encourages you to be fast, but it's really difficult, so you basically aren't allowed to be fast. The game mechanics are slippery, the music is only okay. Mario might not be as fast, (which is actually not entirely true), but the game mechanics are much better and Mario actually has power ups that give variety, adding in much more variety. Also, the retro Mario games were hard as hell. Every sonic game made after the genesis era that isn't colors, generations, or maybe unleashed (not counting, that game's pretty good) sucked and can't even compare to Mario 64 or Mario kart. - Rageg_
Sonic games are better then Mario games
*cough* Opinion! *cough*V 11 Comments
This is a good one. Sonic has so much variety in gameplay! Werewolf (or Werehog), Wisps... Mario's gameplay does vary but not as much. It mostly is just a rehash.
Usually Mario is just wait for the obstacle to be gone or jump over it.
Sonic has more action.
Mario has lots of gameplay variety such as 3d games rpg games party games sports games puzzle games etc
Again, people need to pay attention to the Mario games. I understand that there are a lot of games with the plot of save the princess, but there’s also a lot of others to even it out. Like kart games, party games, sports games, both galaxy games, crossovers, Mario and Luigi series, and maybe a few more. So don’t tell me that these games aren’t a lack of variety compared to a mutant rat just running around ALL THE TIME
Sonic Adventure 1 (especially), Sonic Adventure 2 (especially), Sonic Heroes, Sonic 06, Sonic Unleashed, and Sonic Colors would like to have a word with you. - MasterCreepyV 4 Comments

I don't care. It's an opinion. I like both. - mattstat716

Sonic stages feels different every time in the best way possible. Mario's stages, besides Galaxy, feels almost boring when you think about it.
Both games have fun games
Yes, City escape rocks.
Let’s go through the list of Mario stages shall we?
-Goes into a dimension of being paper in some games
Yea but let's be honest, most of those stages are overused at the point where it just becomes unoriginal. - MasterCreepyV 6 Comments
In Mario, you get a mushroom that makes you grow bigger, and a star that makes you invincible for 10 seconds.
In Sonic, you have boxes with the power-ups. There's shields (Defensive, Flame, Water, and Electric), Invincibility, and Speed Shoes. 'enough said.
Umm that is SO not true can sonic throw fire and ice balls out of his hand?! NO! Can sonic walk through walls (super Mario 64)? NO! Can sonic get a cap with wings to make him fly? NO! (even with tails the wing cap lasts longer) Can sonic turn to metal? NO! (metal sonic is a completely different character) can sonic turn huge and smash everything in sight? NO! I think I have made my point!
What like diamonds who turn sonic yellow, wow real amazing, mario has a smash ball that gives anyone awesome abilities but it hates sonic because sonics power ups are so bad that all he can do is turn into the same super sonic from any power up including the smash ball and mario can turn into countless other awesome things - YOSHIA2121
Can sonic shoot fire from his hands? No! And besides that water shield sucks! Mario can breathe water all day!V 15 Comments
Sonic has for allies:
A two-tailed fox, an echidna, 3 other hedgehogs, Wisps, woodland creatures, a cat, a rabbit, a chameleon, an alligator, a bee, and much more.
Mario has for allies:
His brother, a "toad" that looks like a mushroom, and a girl who always gets kidnapped.
Sonic's had for enemies:
An evil genius, a water creature, a lizard attached to a space colony, a genie, 6 deadly foes, 3 robot clones of himself, badniks, a GOD, a dark creature that was sealed within the planet, a dark creature that has the ability to erase time and space, and I could go on...
Mario's had for an enemy:
A turtle who breathes fire.
Did anyone forget another thing, sonic has more personality than Mario I mean lets face it Mario had little to no personality in the games

I love how you barely named any of the Sonic characters INCLUDING the minor characters, which you did for Mario because it looks like you don't know much about Sonic. - MasterCreepyV 6 Comments
Agreed. Sonic lives in lovely peaceful world.
Sonic goes to different places in the world while Mario just hang around in the Mushroom Kingdom
But Mario travels through the universe in Super Mario Galaxy 1&2, and he travels through many dimensions in Super Paper Mario.
Sonic stays in the exact same world for majority of his games. Mario goes through the Mushroom Kingdom, galaxies, dimensions, and goes to a different universe of being turned into paper form! Now that’s cool! Sonic is lame and super clicheV 4 Comments
Mario, however... that's like trying to compare Uncle Grandpa to Dragon Ball Z.
For some reason, Super Show bores me to death!
I remember being completely disappointed by The Super Mario Bros. Super Show when I watched it for the first time in 2002. When I saw Sonic SATAM in 2008 for the first time, I was officially addicted. Not even coming close to SATAM, The Super Mario Bros. Super Show lost to SATAM in my opinion. The Mario anime wasn't bad (even though they were basically taking the story lines from fairy tales), but Sonic X (which is an anime) stole the show, despite the jacked-up "canon" it had. Frankly, all of Sonic's T.V. shows were much better than Mario's.
Hm, well let’s see. First off, this is an opinion not a REAL reason. Second, let’s look at Sonic’s shows:
The Adventures of Sonic The Hedgehog - has bad voice acting and BORING
Sonic X - Is not even about Sonic, Sonic sits around for majority of the series, and everyone became even more annoying than usual (especially Amy, I mean dear lord!)
Sonic SATAM - Okay, but still boring. Sally is not that good of a character, even though she’s way better than Amy. She fights better and doesn’t complain and whine
Sonic Underground - BORING. I even heard that they never found their mother, so what was the point of this series?
Sonic Boom - Most annoying and stupid of all the Sonic series. Everyone lost a ton of IQ points, Sticks was a pointless character to add in this series, and the fighting sucks and feels rushed. Eggman even made plans with Sonic to fight him in one of the episodes. What the heck?!
Not a good reason to like a character/series more than the other. Calling something "sexy" is why something gets the wrong kind of attention from the wrong kinds of fans these days.
Whoa! Going way too far there - Chaotixhero
Sonic does not have a penis!
It's a kids game no need to say that because everyone knows he doesn't have a penis - Hummingbirdf

The person playing as Mario throws Yoshi off the edge does! Blame the player not the character idiots!
Sonic doesn't jump off of Tails, but Mario jumps off of Yoshi
Poof yoshi, ask sonic for help. I'm sorry Mario treats you like a piece of trash
Mario does not treat Yoshi like trash, he doesn't beat yoshi he points, and he doesn't throw him off the edge, the player does. - GamingGoku757
When Mario rides Yoshi, he doesn’t hit Yoshi he points to where he needs to grab something with his mouth. And Mario doesn’t jump off of Yoshi making him die in a pit, the player does. Idiots!V 2 Comments
Yeah, I know!
Actually it’s harder to control his speed and lacks variety for his games. At least Mario can go normal speed, super slow, or super fast as shown in the Mario and Luigi Dream Team game. This makes Sonic’s games harder to control and harder to watch in my opinion.
Lets say you went over to a friend's house. You play some Sonic Generations, and you have an Xbox 360 at home. "How much did this game cost? " Then you can buy it, simple as that!
Mario, though, you have to buy a Nintendo Console BEFORE you buy the game. It's crap. Nintendo doesn't even put their games on the App Store.
Exactly. While Sonic games are more diverse, going to consoles from Sega to Nintendo (OK, I admit Nintendo probably paid Sega to do that) to Sony, Mario is just exclusive to Nintendo consoles. This may be because since Mario games are so popular, and by making people have to buy Nintendo-only consoles in order to play, makes Nintendo more $$$.
I know Sega went under but not really anyone I know owns a Nintendo system. I do but Sonic is better
Super Mario Run just came out, so I guess that’s just one game added to mobile for Nintendo.V 10 Comments
What does that have to do with anything even though I like Sonic better.
Super Smash Bros. is the best Nintendo franchise (which gets a 9.6).
Super Monkey Ball is the best SEGA franchise (which gets a 9.2).
Actually it's the other way around. - nintendofan126
Nintendo is way better than Sega. - MrCoolCV 7 Comments
If you compare Classic Sonic and Ghostly Adventure Pac-Man, then you are kinda right. They act the same and most of all, act like brothers together - Chaotixhero
Sonic as Pac-Man
Tails as Cylindria
Eggman as Blinky
Sally Acorn as Mrs. Pac-Man
Amy Rose as Pinky
Knuckles as Spiral
Antoine as Professor Pac-Man
Shadow as Toc-Man
Rouge as Sue
Blaze as Orson
Silver as Kinky
Vector as Clyde
Silver as Kinky
Classic Sonic is way better than Pac-Man & the Ghostly Adventures, which differs from how Pac-Man used to be disgracefully.
Wow a mutant rat and a yellow Gumball are similar. I’m totally convinced! *sarcastic clap*V 2 Comments
I seen sonic fuss too
Still have yet to see a modern Knuckles, Tails, Amy, Vector, Espi- god the list goes on, doesn't it? - mattstat716
Sonic abuses tails
In Sonic Lost World, it shows that Sonic isn’t friendly about it. And Mario gives Luigi more games than the amount of what Sonic gives Tails which is 5-2.V 3 Comments
Lool I added this in but it is kinda true I mean Sonic IS the speed of sound so if he at 300 chili dogs he can run and lose all those pounds Mario is fat and can still get that princess jesus please be a bit more realistic Nintendo. - spodermanfan1000
He does not look fat
This actually makes Mario better because it shows that he has skill despite being a little bigger than Sonic. Sonic has the power in him already so that’s cheating. So this point doesn’t help Sonic’s side at allV 1 Comment
Knuckles and Shadow are stronger.
Oh & daisy weakling peach weakling Roy koopa weakling but what about that scaredy cat Luigi weakling oh and the same 10 year old.
Have you EVER played super smash bros.? Mario characters kick sonic characters butts!
You're joking right?
Smash Bros series BALANCES the character traits, retard. If they didn't, Mario would be destroyed by Sonic before he could even move an inch. - MasterCreepy
This isn’t that good of a reason because Mario bros can kick as much butt as Sonic can as shown in all their games. All the main mario characters have elements in them, the sonic characters just have lame skills and dumb weapons. Like for example: Peach has heart element and weapons, Daisy can kick butt and has a flower element, and Rosalina is the goddess of the galaxy that can stop time and destroy anything! Oh but a blue rat that runs all the time will certainly stop these girls! Not! And Mario can still fight just as good as Sonic, so what’s the point of this reasoning?
The question is though, is Mario fast enough to survive Sonic?
Also Super Smash Bros games balance the character traits to prevent one character (Sonic is a great example) from being too overpowered. - MasterCreepy
Sonic is more comical than Mario and Mickey mouse.
Sonic saved my from hell
He never made me laugh the only thing that made me laugh is when he was first made I thought it was a joke but I was 100% wrong
Who cares if he’s funnier though? First off, this is more opinion based. And second, what’s more important? Saving the world or making stupid jokes?
Sonic may make stupid jokes (in more recent games with trash writing), but hey, he still sticks to doing his job. - MasterCreepyV 5 Comments
Mario items are mostly drug item. For example that so called poison mushroom just to get smaller. Not a hero.

Well actually I found out the mushrooms in Mario were inspired from the food in alice in wonderland that makes alice grow big
Sonic items are cooler.
Mega mushrooms is one of the best Mario items.V 4 Comments
They are more useful than just spent as money; they protect you from anything that would otherwise result in death. Except for pitfalls, of course, but what's there to say something that would counter this arguement, Huh? Well? - Classic Sonic
You watch sonic for hire didn't you
Actually, coins make you look rich, while rings make you look lik you divorced 100 TIMES! No wonder sonic hates Amy!
Coins in video-games are unoriginal. rings are actually original. rings are way cooler than coins. anyone who thinks otherwise is a penis - HummingbirdfV 4 Comments
From a 10 year old: Silver Telekenesis, Shadow & Sonic Speed, Amy Sonic Knuckles & Shadow Strength, Silver & Tails Fly want more Silver can move threw Time & Space.
Amy rose in Sonic adventure 2 battle gamecube version she have awesome powers like Amy flash.
Geez, sonic's fanbase sucks!
It has been proven that in earlier games of Mario that Mario is actually faster than Sonic, so Sonic’s speed doesn’t count in this.
The Sonic characters can do amazing things because they were programmed with it. Mario characters do flips and tricks and stuff because they got real skill! Sonic characters cheat because they have the power in them already. Rosalina is a freakin goddess of the galaxy that can stop time and destroy anything! She can beat all these sonic characters in one shot! And besides, they can both fight just fine. So what’s the point of this reason huh?
Listens His World: *shakes his head*
I love his world it is my favorite song
I loved his world, it was so cool
Sonic’s theme songs are either all in your face or have lame lyrics of just “Sonic Runs! He can run! Didn’t you know? That’s right, he can run! ” Or the theme songs have lyrics that don’t even match the game at all! Mario’s songs have more of a classic feel to it, are very enjoyable, and are soothing to listen to.
Mario theme songs are overused and recycled though, which can get very boring to listen to, while Sonic has a huge variety of theme songs. - MasterCreepyV 1 Comment
I find Sonic music to be more contemporary, with bands like Zebrahead, Crush 40, and Michael Jackson. Mario has classical music, which may not be popular with today's teens. A teen myself, when I ask people at school what their favorite music genre is, they almost always respond, "Pop! ", though I do get a few "Rock music! "s in there once in a while. Nobody said classical was their favorite.
If you asked me, then I would say there is no favorite genre. Each is different. Each has something special to it.
Except the theme songs for Yo Gabba Gabba, Barney, Dora, etc...
Sonic Adventure's music to all Mario's music (all of it) Sonic wins 100% - spodermanfan1000
Actually, Mario should have vocal music, not Sonic. I would rather pull Sonic's quills for sucking since Sonic Adventure.
How does this help?! At least you won’t get distracted by the lyrics while fighting if Mario did have some in their songs. Sonic’s songs suck and aren’t appealing, they’re very bland. Mario has classical, fun, soothing music that makes you get excited!
So you prefer overused and recycled music rather than very cool rock music that are all different from each other and aren't recycled? Okay. - MasterCreepyV 6 Comments
During Shadow the Hedgehog, you don't see Sonic getting all mad because he isn't the star. Remember when Luigi got his moment of glory in that tennis game (I forget what it was called, tell me what it's titled in a reply, please), and Mario comes, slams Luigi on his back, then starts grinding his shoes into Luigi's shoes, ruining Luigi's moment of glory.
Mario abuses luigi during the time when luigi the real hero.
Oh you are just right Sonic never throws a fit when someone won Mario did because he wanted to win and he also try's to cheat.
Clearly the Sonic Fans aren’t paying attention to the Mario games. Mario lets Luigi have his spot of fame in Luigi’s Mansion 1 and 2 (Dark Moon). He even CONGRATULATES him and thanks him for saving him. And when Mario pats Luigi on the back and steps on his foot, that’s because he’s messing with him! Haven’t any of you guys heard siblings messing around with each other?! Sonic is the one that wants all the glory. Look at Sonic Lost World! He hates others getting the spotlight! And look at the Rio Olympic celebrations! When you see Sonic paired up with Amy, he tries to run off the stage when Amy stops him and tries to have fun because they won! He’s a coward! And when Sonic is paired up with Eggman, he jumps on him and lands back down, making Eggman upset. But look at the difference of Mario and Bowser’s celebration. Mario is nice enough to just disregard Bowser and not try to take the spotlight even though that’s his enemy! So who’s the spotlight hog now huh? It’s ...moreV 8 Comments
You got it man!
Opinions opinions! How many OPINIONS are we going to have in these reasons?!
I love the music and the secend zone is so buetiful🌋unhook
Well Classic Sonic mostly - Chaotixhero
If you read the comment below and wonder why Sonic's legs are getting longer, longer legs mean more graceful running in my opinion. SEGA must've realized this and gradually lengthened his legs so fans don't freak out because he turned into Slenderman suddenly.
Speaking of, I'm not sure if SEGA is going to turn Sonic into Slenderman. If they did, I'd die laughing.
So... Sonic's legs by 2050 are gonna make him tall enough to get a slam dunk without even jumping. - mattstat716
Sonic is the definition of cool
Think about this: Would you rather see a nice looking plumber that can kick butt and save your life easily? Or see a creepy cyclop mutation thing with it’s two eyes connected? If we were to see these two in real life, I would run away from Sonic. That guy is creepy, while Mario is sweet, caring, and is awesome!V 4 Comments
Wario is SUPPOSED to look bad!
That's animal abu- wait, this is an anthropomorphic hedgehog/robot/android. Um... Well then. - mattstat716
That's like comparing an ugly emo kid to a glorious model.
Shadow isn't emo he is always remembering a moment from the past that haunts him til this day even though he sounds like a emo and looks like one he isn't start playing sonic games and see for yourself. - spodermanfan1000
Wario’s suppose to look bad, it defines his character. And besides, this is beastiality.V 9 Comments
It's a shame, because everyone's like "Oh, SONIC! He sucks! " But Mario never, ever rolled around at the speed of sound. And let's be real. Green Hill Zone theme was legit.
True - PaperMarioFan
First off, look at the popularity Mario has over Sonic. Mario’s games have sold WAY MORE than that blue rat! And besides, it actually has been proven that in earlier games Mario is faster than Sonic. Pay attention to the facts guys!
