I had two dreams for this thread, and one of them is dead now. Please don't kill my other dream, Talking Time.

Poochy was the second of three dogs I voted for.

And, upon reflection of that part of my list, I think I forgot what numerical order is.

Bullet Bill knows that sometimes being a giant sentient bullet isn't enough and you gotta throw hands.

#17 Boo
First Appearance: Super Mario Bros. 3 1988
261 points, 11 nominations



Boos are such ingrained part of Mario games that it's easy to forget they're a part of Mario 3's surprising expansion of what Mario is or could be. A ghost that's afraid of YOU is a pretty excellent idea. Of course, Boos didn't really come into their own until Mario World where we get boos of all sizes and silly faces. Even boos that lure you with one ups and stuff. Boos are pretty great... Except for Mario Sunshine?!?!?!?!?!

I was adjusting my screen contrast because this boo was so hard to see.

Then I realized it was art.

#16 Gombella
First Appearance: Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door 2004
264 points, 11 nominations



It's that Mario girl that all of TT is thirsty for. Gombella takes Goombario's roll in TTYD, but instead of being an annoying tag-along she's a smart and sassy undergrad. Everyone loves Goombella as she defies expectations. Smart AND a blond?! How progressive, Nintendo.

#15 Phanto
First Appearance: Super Mario Bros. 2 1988
265 points, 10 nominations



Jbear's going to get scared twice today it seems. Phanto is a simple mask that is a portal to the gateway to hell. However, the only way to open it is to take the key that's necessary to beat the level. Once acquired, Phanto turns from mask to unstoppable undefeatable unavoidable death mask and your only option is to RUN.

Run Jbear. It's coming for you.

Bonus:#102 Burt the Bashful
First Appearance: Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island 1995
41 points, 2 nominations



When Yoshi's Island first came out people dismissed it as a baby game. Since then popular opinion has changed. "This is a sophisticated game with some of Nintendo's best design" can be overheard from intellectual's tables at the finest and most posh restaurants and dineries. However! As counterpoint consider the first boss, Burt, who's entire design is "his pants fall down."

Case closed.

He's not alone. Phanto sure gave me a scare as a kid. Buit the fun kind, the kind with an exhilarating thrill of doing something I'm not supposed to, like steal a key and almost getting caught. That's right, Phanto is the man, in more ways than one.

This seems to come up every time that I post that GIF, but it's just not true. I'm not sure what ya'll are remembering, but not only will the key not kill him, but even the invincibility star won't kill him by itself. Only a star and a stop-watch used in concert are enough to kill him, and even then he'll come right back when you enter a new area.

Maybe you thought you were hitting him with the key? I mean, he does leave when you put it down.

It's been a long time, so maybe I am remembering it wrong. Man, I need to play that again.

This was true for my list, too. I can't believe it! JBear and I agree on something!

Goombella wasn't on my actual list, but she was on my long list despite the fact that I've barely played Mario RPGs, 'cause she's so adorable.

Boo was on my list 'cause they're goofy-spooky and oh-so-versatile.

Phanto was on for TERROR.
