What Nintendo characters should get their own games? Nominations

#1wiiking96Posted 1/7/2013 12:41:07 PM(edited)
I'm making a poll series where we see what characters people would want to see as a protagonist for the first time the most. Many characters have the potential for games on the Wii-U or 3DS.

This is the first of two nominations topic. You get 5 nominations. Once we reach at least 20 characters, I'll start the polls.

Nominations:
Bowser X2
Zelda X2
Ridley X1

Please copy and paste the list over, even if the person before you forgets.
I will be updating it myself if needed, but please try to make my job a little easier.

More villains need to be protagonists. BiS proves it can work.
Ridley, Ganondorf, Fawful, Bowser, and Dimentio all for their own games!

Yes, but not one all to himself.

I once worked with a guy for three years and never learned his name. Best friend I ever had. We still never talk sometimes.

The part where the name of a series doesn't always name the protagonist?

I mean, the Legend of Zelda games star Link. And the Metroid games star the clearly non-Metroid Samus Aran.



Anyway, the only reason Bowser works as a hero for any game is that he is willing to fight against a greater evil. BiS isn't about Bowser killing Mario and saving the world, it's about Bowser trying to stop Fawful from taking over the world (this isn't the first time either - he willingly teams up with Mario in Super Mario RPG and Super Paper Mario to fight a greater evil). Whether his motives are selfish or not, games just don't work if you try to make an established villain defeat their hero. They have to fight a new, much more dangerous villain.

Another good example: Robotnik teaming up with Sonic in Sonic Adventure 2. Or all the villains in Brawl's Subspace Emissary helping the heroes fight Tabuu.

Also, TC, Zelda definitely got her own game on CD-i as well, although it was terrifyingly bad.

That said:

Nominations:
Bowser X2
Zelda X2
Ridley X1
Toad X5
Monita X5
Toadsworth x 2
Shy Guy x 2
King Dedede x 1
