Hey Loki, do you know when you plan to start the submission thread for Marios? It looks like with the format Issun's following, his will take two weeks to wrap up, but we haven't always waited for the previous list to finish before starting the time window to work on new lists.

(I ask partially because I'll be out of the country for a while starting later this week and don't want to miss it... I actually already started a draft list to get ahead of the game, but may have to adjust it based on whatever the actual guidelines end up being for, like, what counts as a Mario game and so on.)

Thread should be up later tonight. Deadline for submissions will be midnight the 17th.

Guidelines are super lax. Aside from one super specific rule there's no hard and fast "what's allowed." Use your best judgement.

Unless that rule is "Smash doesn't count" it's going to be hard not to vote Samus #1.

Super Leet Strategery alert: you don't need Smash to sneak in Samus.
Samus cameos in Super Mario RPG
And thus we've spoiled what I was seriously considering using as my traditional semi-joke #25 entry... ah well.

I won't lie, by way of the Olympics series I was tempted to add some Sonic characters. I may regret not adding Eggman to the list, but it felt a bit out of spirit of the competition to have the best Mario character be one that shows up almost exclusively in an entirely different series. Much as how there's no Pac-Man on the list.

Just a heads-up: now that the Top 50 Geno Mario Characters list is reaching its climax, we're opening the voting for the Top 50 Videogame Soundtrack list.
