The bolded characters were not on the final list:
  1. Big the Cat
  2. Roy Koopa
  3. Pauline
  4. Booster
  5. Captain Syrup
  6. Phanto
  7. Funky Kong
  8. Waluigi
  9. Wario
  10. Luigi
  11. Rosalina
  12. Captain Toad
  13. Nabbit
  14. Raphael the Raven
  15. Big Bertha
  16. Burt the Bashful
  17. Bill Board
  18. Geno
  19. Bombette
  20. Daisy
  21. Goombella
  22. Koopa the Quick
  23. Yoshi
  24. Unagi the Eel
  25. Fawful

I was slightly disappointed that we didn't get any Sonic characters on the list, but it was probably for the best.

On the other hand, the fact that Nabbit didn't place is a travesty.

For the record's sake, I'll let you know that I wanted to kiss the bomb.

Hmm... Is that more or less awesome than suplexing one?

Why he was on my list: Boom Boom is mid-bossing good. OK, maybe not good since he is kind of a chump (especially once you know his different tricks). But I respect his persistence and his willingness to learn new tricks.

Also it'd never work if a bug didn't prevent spiny's intended behavior:

That is some ROMhack level bullshit there. (Also, everyone who voted for Lakitu - I am updating your spreadsheet entry to mention that you are suspected of being a masochist.)

My list:
  1. shoe wearing goomba
  2. pile driver micro-goomba
  3. koopa troopa
  4. boom boom
  5. bob-omb
  6. yoshi
  7. bullet bill
  8. toad
  9. thwomp
  10. boo
  11. bowser
  12. dry bones
  13. mario
  14. shy guy
  15. koopa paratroopa
  16. luigi
  17. Super Mario Brothers 3 hammer brothers
  18. birdo
  19. piranha plant
  20. princess peach (toadstool)
  21. goomba
  22. rip van fish
  23. fishin' boo
  24. spike top
  25. buzzy beetle

He really deserved a top spot.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I'm glad you all enjoyed the list. It was a blast of fun to do. I was also hoping that by forcing myself to do colored drawings every day I would get back into the habit of working on my cartooning. I'm pretty proud of most of the stuff here, some of it is the best work I've ever done. So thank you for indulging me and my stupid drawings.

Thanks for the list, Loki, I enjoyed it a lot! And the art was amazing.

Poor Luigi, even while winning he can't catch a break.

I did this list in seconds and really put no thought into it.

1. Sonny (Mario Golf)
2. Mario
3. Wario
4. Geno
5. Rawk Hawk
6. Luigi
7. Jason Bateman as Video Prince
8. Bowser
9. Frogfucius
10. Smithy
11. Krump
12. Koops
13. Count Bleck
14. Pauline
15. Princess Peach

Very sad that Sonny didn't even place. Also very sad that Mario got so low on the list, he really is a great character. While I also like Luigi more, it seems silly to rank Luigi higher when it is about Mario's series. I always play as Mario in Mario Kart/Party, as well, because it is his party or his kart and therefore I always win. Mario is the name you should know, Mario is the star of the show. He's more than you think, he's got maximum pink-

Wait wrong guy.

24. Peach. Toadstool. Princess.
22. Bullet Bill. An angry munition.
21. Roy Koopa. Token koopaling rep.
20. Magikoopas. Delightful.
19. Yoshi's Island monkeys. The only good monkeys.
18. Toadette. Moglings call her: Toadarina.
17. Culex. This is a vote for the FF4 boss theme.
16. Chargin' Chuck. Mostly because... Moglings call it: Chargin' Chunk.
15. Super Mushroom. Don't tell me it's not a character.
14. Bob-ombs, except for the one in the last level of Mario 2 that's buried in the same room as a potion. That one sucks.
13. Moles. The Super Mario World kind, because screw the ones that throw wrenches.
12. Captain Toad.
11. Toad.
10. Probably Bowser.
9. Lakitu, in all his forms.
8. Thwomp. Nothing embodies the Mario character design ethos better than an angry block. Moglings call them: Thromps.
7. Boos. All of them.
6. Fishing Boo, though.
5. The salesman from the Nintendo Power comic strip. That's right.
4. Goomba. If there were no Goomba, there would be no Mario. Moglings call them: Goombons.
3. Baby Luigi.
2. Luigi.
1. Peach dressed as Luigi.

I'm not really surprised no one else voted for Lucas but seriously, I was the only one to vote for Percy?
