It's worth noting that Captain Toads game has a jump button.

And the Captain himself is weighed down enough that he's not capable of leaving the ground with it.

I just need to decide whether to make a real list or go with the silly one I made.

If your criteria for a good Mario character is silliness, then your silly list is also your real list.

I wrote down 25 Mario characters/enemies as they came to mind and submitted that. I figure whatever came to mind first must be more important.

Submitted! I think this may be the list I'm most excited about, even though I expect almost none of my entries to appear in the Top 50. There are so many characters I love in the Mario universe that it was hard to just pick 25.

We had a few late entries but it's cool, I'm calling it here though because I gotta lock things in place. We got 35 lists of amazing entries and I was delighted by every one of them. Thank you for everyone who entered, I appropriate your participation and I really mean that! Thank you for taking time to be involved with a stupid thing. I'll get all this sorted out and we'll start the official countdown soon.

I did, too, especially when you didn't comment on my #1.

Whenever we do these things with video games as the topic, the tone of the discussion shifts; it's much more of a standard "talking about television games" vibe than the standard "top 50 list" one. It's not necessarily worse -- lord knows we all enjoy talking about television games -- but it is very different.

I do think if people want to compare statistical data from their lists while a given Top 50 is still going it should maybe be spoilertagged in the future. Sadly I didn't think of that solution until we were well into the Top 20 and people had kind of stopped doing that anyways.

Seems like exactly the kind of thing that can be decided by the OP, since they're the one doing all the work.

Well yeah? The word "maybe" usually implies suggestion, not command.

All of my ideas were silly, so I went ahead and sent in the more sincerely silly ones. Among the ones that I cut - the frivolously silly - were "that kid in the arcade who showed you how to get small fire mario," "pink player two Donkey Kong Jr." and "John Leguizamo."

I was driving into work this morning when I realized that I had left off a minor fave, but I will cope with this disappointment.
