It's kinda sad that the only Black video game character to have a lead role in more than one game is 50 Cent. --- Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series. Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

Considering the extremely small black population in Japan and the resulting prevalence of black caricatures in the general media, it's probably for the best that Nintendo doesn't even bother trying for a black main character. We'd probably end up getting another Jynx fiasco.
The real question is: why aren't American companies using more black or hispanic characters, considering that they make up a more significant portion of the population? Why do white VAs handle a good portion of all the American mascot games? How many prominent American game characters have Southern accents? --- -Mike 3DS Friend Code: 2148-8168-3762 Street Fighter IV "Everyone's entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts"

Link is black, it's just that he has vitiligo.

We need an Indian/Middle Eastern Link. He can be part Gerudo. --- "Only good thing about Sephy was his music; Only thing he ever did was throw his mom at you and stab a flowergirl." - BattleJesus
