As much as I like Crash I'd have to go with Mario. The guy is known to me as "the videogame character that can do anything." He races, plays tennis, plays soccer, went to space, throws a party every year (Mario Party), and beats up Bowser.
Mario is literally an awesome character that I would never put above another character. Even though my favorite character is Mao from Disgaea 3, Mario will always be that guy that I will always remember and never forget.
Sorry for double posting but I just had to mention this. Why do all these Mario pics so dang violent. Seriously the non-bloody ones look worse then the ones with no blood.
See what I mean. Fighting fanart looks 10x better when it's not all bloody and gorey, espescially with a character like Mario. I just can't imagine seeing him bleeding and with no arm like this. Welp there goes my childhood lol.
