Default Time to Nominate Your Fav Mario Characters: No Geno




~The top Fifty Mario Game Characters and Enemies Nomination Thread~

Boy those Mario games sure have introduced a lot of kooky characters over the years. Letís pick our favorites! PM me a list of no more than your favorite 25 Mario characters and enemies. Your number one pick will get 35 points, number two 34 points, and so on. Feel free to nominate both types of enemies (Goombas) or a specific characters (Professor Frankly). All Mario games are on the table, be they Platformer, Sportstravaganza, or Role Played. I want this to be a chill fun list so donít worry about if so-and-so counts. Vote for who you want, but if you pull some shenanigans like ďMario and Snake were in Smash Bros so Iím voting for Liquidís armĒ you risk getting side eyed. Other than that, just remember the one rule and everything will be fine.

Some considerations:

Please number your list when sending it in. Some people put their top choice at the top, and some at the bottom. Without numbers itís impossible to know which.

If you have a joke list please just post it in the thread for everyone to enjoy instead of forcing me to tabulate it up.

Deadline for nominations is 23:59:59 ET on 7/17/17

Now, letís all think too hard about Mario.

I still don't get all the Geno hate around here. He's fairly innocuous as VG characters go.

Can we vote for types of enemies from a specific game?

Unless you're Nintendo - then you just replace Bowser with Donkey Kong.

Also, in the end it might not even be necessary. I already have 24 of my 25 chosen. I just need one more. But then I have to order them.

Are we restricted to games, or can we go with comics/cartoons too? Because I have a hankering to vote for Milli Vanilli.
