A brief summary of each character's story and personality
Hello everyone. I'm sure very few of us played all characters' original games. Like me, I believe many of you wanted to know at least a little bit about every character's story.
I searched countless times about every character's story, but with a few exceptions, all I could find about most of them was really long videos and texts. But since we have a lot of characters, reading/watching all of those would take days. I believe most of us would really like a brief summary of each character's story and personality.
So what I would like to propose is that each one of us post the name of a character who has an interest in knowing the story and personality better, so that some other member who knows that info can make this brief summary. I would like to know the history of each one and do this summary for myself and post here for everyone, but unfortunately I do not know and I do not have the time for such research either. I'll edit this post to add every summary that comes up (with credits, of course).
I hope you like this idea.
- Some characters do not exactly have a story, like Duck Hunt, so we can just do this:
Duck Hunt is a game released in 1984 where the player should try to shoot the ducks and avoid shooting the hunting dog that occasionally jumps out as a distraction.
- Some have more than one, like Mario and Link. So let's stick to the main stories like:
"Mario is a plumber who chases villain Bowser to save his beloved Princess Peach." (Ok, maybe not so brief, just an example).
"Link was a young boy who lived in the forest until....."
No need to go into the details of each game (Sunshine, Galaxy, Odyssey, Ocarina, Majora's, etc.)
PS: English is not my native language, so any help with that and corrections to the posted stories will be appreciated. Edit: This is starting to look great. Thanks to everyone helping.
WARNING: THERE WILL BE SPOILERS! That's actually the point... Be careful when reading if you plan to find out the story of the character on your own by playing the game.
CHARACTERS STORY AND PERSONALITY SUMMARY
- Bayonetta (credits: Iann2; ElboMan)
(copy and pasted from wiki)
Bayonetta (real name Cereza) is the eponymous main character and protagonist of the Bayonetta series. She is a coquettish and mysterious Umbra Witch. Considered the black sheep of the Umbra Witches due to her Umbran and Lumen descent in which breaks the respective clan's sacred tenents, she possesses a remarkable talent for Bullet Arts and possessed the Left Eye of Darkness. In the first game, she was sealed away five hundred years ago until she was later found and awaken. Spending twenty years with amnesia, she battles against the angelic hordes of Paradiso and fights to end the malcious plans of the last of the Lumen Sages, Balder.
Months after, Bayonetta in the second game finds her friend and fellow clans member Jeanne taken down to the realm of Inferno after a summon gone wrong. With the help of Rodin, she not only is hounded by angels but even demons and uncovers a deeper plot of a former half of a god conspiring to reclaim his lost power and the truth behind the Witch Hunts.
Bayonetta is a witch that fights evil demons and angels by strapping guns to her shoes and using magic. She also fetishizes literally everything she does.
- Bowser (credits: SmsgPass; insertusernamehere51)
Bowser (formally known as 'King Koopa') is a Turtle/Dragon creature who is best known for being Mario's main nemesis. Often tries to take over the Mushroom Kingdom, most frequently by kidnapping and attemting to marry princess Peach through brute strength, various gadgets, or various powers such as fire breath. Bowser is known for his evil appearance and attitude towards those that oppose him, often coming across as narcissistic, snarky, and rude through his dialogue. However, he does seem to have a bit of a soft side when it comes to Princess Peach or a certain other few characters. He's also a loving father.
- Bowser Jr. (credits: UberMadman)
Bowser Jr. is the sole biological son of Bowser, (the king of the Koopas,) and heir to his throne. First appearing in Super Mario Sunshine, he disguises himself as a shadow version of Mario to frame him for the defiling of Isle Delfino, an act that he himself commits using a magic paintbrush he somehow obtained from Professor E. Gadd. Because his father lied to him by telling him that Peach was his mother and Mario keeps trying to seaparate them, Bowser Jr. aids in her kidnapping and takes her to Corona Mountain, where he and his father do battle with and lose to Mario. Afterwards, Jr. reveals to his father that he realized that Peach wasn’t really his mother, but he wanted to fight Mario again one day regardless, a dream he ended up fulfilling numerous times afterwards. Since he is nowhere near as big or strong as his father, Jr. usually prefers to enhance his combat abilities with combat vehicles, with his most preferred being his signature Junior Clown Car, designed after a similar vehicle his father occasionally uses. Ultimately, Bowser Jr. values two things above all else: the relationship with his father, and defeating Mario once and for all.
- Captain Falcon (credits: darthluigi36)
The bounty hunter with a mysterious past - he is rumored to hail from Port Town, but little else is known. He has won countless F-Zero races, amassing an enormous amount of wealth. Falcon is known to take his prize money and quickly return to his private home, featuring multiple tracks where he hones his skills.
Falcon was one of the racers involved in a major accident during a Grand Prix four years ago, caused by Pico's recklessness. While he was hospitalized, his blood was stolen his nemesis Black Shadow and used to create a nefarious clone, Blood Falcon. Captain Falcon eventually defeats Blood Falcon and Black Shadow in the Grand Prix, only for Black Shadow's true master to reveal himself - Deathborne! Deathborne, the racing champion of the underworld, challenges Falcon to a race in the underworld for both the F-Zero and Underworld belts.
Deathborne then reveals the true nature of the belts - they are condensed essences of light and dark, and Deathborne intends to use their power to wipe out all life on a galactic level. Falcon defeats him, earning a new belt made from the other two combined.
Falcon returns to his hideout, his ordeal seemingly over, when suddenly three ghostly figures appear, claiming to be the creators of the world. They had created Deathborne as their puppet, but Falcon had defeated him. They then take Falcon to an ethereal plane and race him for his very soul - by defeating him, they would make Falcon their new puppet!
You can guess who wins.
- Chrom (credits: insertusernamehere51; Thisisalsomypass)
A distant descendant of Marth, Chrom is the prince of Ylisse and leader of a milita group called the Shepherds, which defend the country from bandits and the advances of the Mad King Gangrel. Chrom has a baby daughter called Lucina, who has already been detailed.
Chrom was forced to become exalt after his sister martyred herself, and he refused the title instead going by prince as he feels onky she was worthy of being called exalt. A hero against fate willing to trust his friends and instincts above predefined futures.
(I would love more details)
- Cloud (credits: Reviathan; BoomerDaCat)
A troubled and unorthodox ex-member of Shinra, the elite in Midgar, and a company that harnesses the planet's life as energy. In a turn of fate, Cloud finds himself a member of AVALANCHE, a small underground terrorist organization stationed in Midgar. Headed by Barret Wallace and including Cloud's childhood friend Tifa Lockhart, AVALANCHE seeks to put an end to Shinra's grasp over the Planet's energy.
During AVALANCHE's fight against Shinra, Cloud is assailed with strange visions that appear like nightmarish memories, much of it pertaining to Sephiroth, a first-class in Shinra's military division. As these visions grow in intensity, Cloud is left with less and less control over himself physically and mentally.
AVALANCHE's mission becomes much more complicated as Shinra is now at odds with Sephiroth as well - and Cloud's party find themselves in a cross-continental adventure to learn what exactly Sephiroth's goal is, to stop Shinra and Sephiroth, to save the planet, and hopefully figure out what is wrong with Cloud along the way.
Born royalty from Hoshido, Corrin didn't know anything about this for the entirety of his formative years. He was kidnapped as a newborn by the king of Nohr, a warring nation, and raised believing he was one of Nohr's royalty. He spent all this time in an isolated castle, his only interaction with the outside world through his servants and siblings. This might have given him a peculiar outlook, which could charitably be described as "idealistic," and uncharitably as "naive."
Soon enough, Corrin is thrust into the center of the war between Hoshido and Nohr, where he learns the truth of his heritage, and is pushed to make difficult decisions on who to back, which will eventually determine the fate of both countries.
- Daisy (credits: insertusernamehere51)
The princess of Sarasaland, Daisy was once kidnapped by the alien Tatanga and rescued by Mario. She is a regular of Mario side-games, though her main series appearances are limited to her debut. She's brash and tomboyish, she's a close friend of Peach and is often paired with Luigi, though their relationships is not really developed in game.
- Dark Pit (credits: UberMadman)
Dark Pit is a clone of Pit created from an artifact known as the Mirror of Truth. After Medusa, the antagonist from the first Kid Icarus game, was mysteriously resurrected from the dead after 25 years, she entrusted one of her commanders, Pandora, with the task of replicating enough monsters to build up her army. Pandora uses the Mirror of Truth to accomplish this, as it is capable of cloning the bodies and souls of anyone who looks into it while changing their allegiance to make them serve the mirror’s owner. Pit and Palutena get word of this, and Pit is sent into Pandora’s Labyrinth of Deceipt to confront her and destroy the mirror, but Pandora uses the opportunity to make a clone of Pit using the Mirror of Truth in an attempt to create a powerful new weapon for the Underworld army. However, Pit smashes the mirror as his clone is being created, halting the process just early enough to prevent the mirror from forcing the newly created Dark Pit to ally himself with the Underworld army.
After his creation, Pit and Dark Pit clash on multiple occasions, and occasionally help each other out in their quests to defeat the Underworld army, but eventually Dark Pit comes to the realization that his life is linked to Pit, meaning if Pit were to die, he would too. After this point, Dark Pit stops opposing his doppelgänger entirely and fully commits himself to assisting Pit whenever he needs it.
Dark Pit’s personality reflects the doubts and insecurities Pit keeps locked away inside his heart, so Dark Pit does not like to form allegiances unless he deems it necessary, and is openly critical of the role the gods play in the conflicts of mankind. Despite this, he still has a very strong sense of morality similar to Pit’s, and he prefers to act on what he thinks is right. After the events of Kid Icarus: Uprising, Dark Pit allies himself with the goddess Viridi, despite his critique of her actions in the past, solely because he feels the two shares similar goals. At the end of the day, though he and Pit may disagree on how to act on their beliefs, the two of them are two sides of the same coin, and are much stronger fighting together than they are alone.
- Dark Samus (credits: Spiteful_Guru; insertusernamehere51)
On the planet Phaaze a highly mutagenic and radioactive substance called Phazon was originated, which spread through the galaxy by means of meteorites. One landed on the planet Tallon IV, and infected a Metroid to the point where it became incredibly mutated and powerful. This creature was a Metroid larva, and through Phazon exposure it grew into one of the most powerful entities ever to exist: Metroid Prime. Strangely, when Samus finally reached the Impact Crater to stop the spread of Phazon on Tallon IV once and for all, there were no signs of the leviathan core, with Metroid Prime itself having become the source of Phazon on the planet. Samus defeated it, however, the remains of Metroid Prime fused with Samus' Phazon Suit, which had been taken from her during the battle. This created a new being made entirely out of Phazon, but shaped like Samus' Power Suit: Dark Samus.
- Diddy Kong (credits: insertusernamehere51; FaelBC)
Donkey Kong's nephew and little buddy. Not much in terms of backstory, but he is energetic and adventurous and has helped DK in numerous adventures, and even saved him, with the help of his girlfriend Dixie.
- Donkey Kong (credits: FaelBC)
Donkey Kong lives in Donkey Kong Island with another members of Kong Family. Often being disturbed by his enemy, King K Rool, he frequently has to fight to save the island or to recover stolen bananas with his friends/family.
DK shows pride in his strength, enjoys eating and hoarding bananas, and is occasionally depicted as an idiot or dopey, but he is the hero of Donkey Kong Island.
- Dr. Mario (credits: insertusernamehere51; FaelBC)
Mario with a PhD, I guess. Uses Megavitamines to destroy colorful viruses which cause Fever or Chill. He takes part in a puzzle game similar to Tetris, Dr. Mario presents Nintendo's mascot Mario as a doctor. The gameplay consists of controlling vitamin capsules composed of two parts in a field of play similar to a glass of remedies, infested by three-color viruses (red, yellow and blue).
Be the first.
- Falco (credits: Marioaddict)
Falco Lombardi is a member of an avian race and ace pilot of the Star Fox team. He is also a good friend and friendly rival to Fox McCloud. Falco has appeared alongside his wingmates in every Star Fox game to date, and usually retains his brash, cool, and collected behavior. Although he's an ace pilot, Falco is sometimes caught in situations in which he cannot escape, and must rely on Fox for assistance, often to his chagrin. .
- Fox (credits: Marioaddict)
Fox McCloud was a cadet at the Cornerian Defense Army Academy when he heard the news that his father, James McCloud, had met a violent end at the hands of the twisted genius, Andross. The senior McCloud had been betrayed by his own wingman, Pigma Dengar, and delivered into a deadly trap from which there was seemingly no escape. Only James's wingman, Peppy Hare, managed to limp home in his badly damaged starfighter. As the only survivor of the original Star Fox Team, Peppy insisted that the young Fox take on the leadership of the group and form a new team of pilots. Thrust into the leadership role that he wasn't prepared for, Fox recruited the hot-tempered Falco Lombardi and the mechanical genius Slippy Toad to make up the new Star Fox Team. For a price, this crack group will fight against any threat to the Cornerian star system.
- Ganondorf (credits: insertusernamehere51)
[Spoilers for Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword] In the depths of the desert, there is a race called the Gerudo, they are comprised entirely of women, however, every one hundred years, a man is born, and becomes king. Ganondorf Dragmire was one such man. Called the "King of Thieves", Ganondorf despised the Royal Family for forcing his people to live in the desert, which led him to plan to take over Hyrule.
Ganondorf seeked the Triforce, the sacred relic that would grant a wish to anyone who touched it. However, because of Ganondorf's evil heart, the Triforce split into three pieces, each of which chose a bearer that best embodied their essence. Link received the Triforce of Courage, Zelda received the Triforce of Wisdom, and Ganondorf received the Triforce of power. This relic granted him unbelievable powers, including near immortality and the ability to transform into a monstrous beast, Ganon (unlike Link and Zelda, there's only one Ganondorf). Ganondorf was defeated by Link and Zelda, and was sealed away in the Sacred Realm, but he always breaks out, and tries to take over Hyrule. Ganon is also the realization of a curse set upon the original link and Zelda by the demon Demise, which said a reincarnation of Demise's hatred would haunt the spirt of the hero and the blood of the goddess for all eternity
- Greninja (credits: UltraSupertrom; TricksterFairy)
A rare watedark frog-like Pokémon native to the region of Kalos. It evolves from Frogadier, which evolves from Froakie. With movement as swift and graceful as a ninja, it can confuse enemies and strike them using it's water shurikens, which are made of compressed water and are strong enough to cut through steel. The "scarf" it wears around its neck is actually its extremely long tongue. Wait, that's actually gross...
- Ice Climbers (credits: insertusernamehere51)
A duo of unknown relationship. Their vegetables were stolen by a Condor, and they climb mountains tor etrieve them.
- Ike (credits: SilentMasterOfWinds; researchpurposes-)
Ike is the protagonist of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. Distinct from other main characters in not being of royal blood, Ike is a young man raised in the country of Crimea and trained as a mercenary by his father, Greil. When war breaks out between Crimea and neighbouring Daein, eventually encompassing the continent, Ike finds the lost princess of Crimea and, left in charge of the mercenaries after a figure from his father's past murders him in cold blood, sets out to defeat Daein, reinstate Elincia as Queen of Crimea, and avenge his father.
Ike is a compassionate and just man, who speaks his mind on what he believes is right without much thought for the potential consequences. His drive to be stronger and surpass his father was only amplified after his father's death, and by the end of Radiant Dawn Ike is the strongest swordsman in all the fire emblem worlds and traveled from his world to the world of Archanea, where after creating a mercenary group, finally settled down.
- Inkling (credits: insertusernamehere51; axicos)
After the human race became extinct, two species rose to inherit the Earth: the Inklings, humanoids evolved from squids, and the Octarians, which evolved from Octopi.
The Inkling is a subspecies mix of humans and squids that's main characteristic is to switch between two forms: the "kid" form, a humanoid appearance that is less draining and is often the standard for the race, and the "squid" form, a more traditional squid appearance that, while easier to maneuver and able to suck up liquids such as ink, isn't used due to it being tactically disadvantageous in combat.
The species has appeared after the death of humans, and due to archeological findings their culture grew more rapidly, having unique squidphones, which are really just ipads in disguise. They still work, sometimes even better then the standard today, though. They also have a heavily pop culture focused society, focusing on "fresh" clothes and pop idols such as the ever iconic Squid Sisters, or a more recent band Off The Hook. Even the News is run by these type of folk!
There's also a sport that is heavily weaved into the Inkling social workings, named Turf War. It focuses on Inklings using weapons like the normal sniper and pistol like weapons, to a bucket that dumps unorganized-like and even a shotgun-reminiscent Umbrella that use a limited pool of ink to splash as much of their color on the floor as possible. You'd be surprised at how much it works as a sport, which might be why its so notorious in the large scale community of Inklings.
They also have an enemy in the Octarian, a species against which they constantly battle for the mastery of the surface, that currently lives in the underground. Think Inkling, but with an octopus instead of a squid. They had a grand war over that, the Great Turf War, which later provided the foundation for Turf War the sport. This war was focused on the two sides. Octarians had the advantage for a while, before the Inklings outclassed them by a simple error. Their leader, DJ Octavio, is seeking revenge but is getting no dice due to a strike squad of Inklings like those pop idols and some ragtag regulars from normal Inkling society.
- Jigglypuff (credits: TricksterFairy)
With an appearance suspiciously similar to another pink puffball, Jigglypuff is a Normal/Fairy type pokemon who's body is filled with air, earning it the title of the "Balloon Pokemon". Wait, that's also similar to...ah, never mind. Anyway, Jigglypuff uses it's large eyes to entrance it's opponents, then inflates it's lungs to sing a soothing lullaby. However, some Jigglypuff would get mad if you fall asleep while they're singing, and punish you by scribbling all over your face!
In Super Smash Bros., Jigglypuff can use it's rest move to instantly KO other fighters. You better read your opponent well, or it's night-night to you!
- King Dedede (credits: insertusernamehere51; DispenserHead; TricksterFairy)
The self proclaimed King of Dream Land. He's greedy and a glutton, and though he's often an enemy of Kirby, they also team up to fight greater threats. Dedede once tried to steal all the food from Dream Land. After Kirby defeated him in combat, he's gained a begrudging respect for the little guy. Kirby managed to set him straight by defeating him in a boxing match. Ever since, Dedede's motives have been questionable, but ultimately for the greater good.
In "Kirby's Adventure", King Dedede broke the Star Rod from the Fountain of Dreams into seven pieces, to prevent Nightmare from corrupting the Fountain of Dreams. Sadly, the King can't catch a break, as he's been possessed multiple times by various members of the Dark Matter species, the earliest dating back to "Kirby's Dreamland 2", needing Kirby to snap him out of it. In "Revenge of the King" from "Kirby Superstar Ultra", King Dedede and his longtime rival Kirby settle the score by duking it out in the boxing ring once more, with the King donning a fearsome steel mask. Ever since, King Dedede has been an ally in Kirby's quests to save the world, such as in "Kirby Star Allies" where he can be summoned as a Dream Friend.
- King K. Rool (credits: Krooli)
The tyrannical king of Kremling isle often finds himself facing off against Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong for their banana horde. In Donkey Kong Country 2 he took Donkey Kong captive in order to get back at the Kong’s and take their banana horde as he fought against Diddy and his girlfriend Dixie in his new persona Kaptain K Rool.
Though he lost he still came back in Donkey Kong Country 3 for revenge as he took Donkey Kong and Diddy captive he used his new persona Baron K Roolenstien to face off against Dixie and again he lost.
He then came back in 64 in an attempt to blow up Donkey Kong Isle. As the DK Crew fought through his army he fought them in the boxing ring and again he lost. He survived and one day he might face off against Donkey Kong again.
- Kirby (credits: Solesbee; DispenserHead)
Native from the planet Pop Star, Kirby is a simple guy with infinite power: he likes his food, he likes his friends, he likes his planet, and he's gonna defend any of these from any thread. He is also very sweet, helping those in need and even befriending those who attacked him. Kirby will stop at nothing to keep his Homeland peaceful, using his amazing power to inhale and copy the powers of those he fights! Though his adventures start out simple, he is often faced with foes made of pure evil, as well as innocent beings who have been corrupted by greed and powerful ancient artifacts. Things sometimes may look grim for Kirby, but don't worry, his friends will be there for him!
- Link (credits: insertusernamehere51; reallysourpine24)
A hero often reincarnating in the land of Hyrule to save it in times of great danger. There are multiple Links, but they are all reincarnations of the spirit of the hero. All Links share a few common traits: their appearance, their left-handedness (most of the times), their propensity for over-sleeping, their background as living in small towns, etc. Link is also the bearer of the Triforce of Courage, one piece of Hyrule's Sacred Relic, the Triforce, created by the Three Goddesses. The Link in Ultimate is the BOTW incarnation:
Originally a part of the Hylian Imperial Guard, Link was chosen to be the Hylian Champion and act as Princess Zelda’s bodyguard. After Calamity Ganon corrupts the Guardians and kills the other four Champions, Link is mortally wounded defending Zelda and is placed in the Shrine of Resurrection in order heal. He awakens a hundred years later with amnesia and is told to free the Champions’ Divine Beasts from the Great Calamity’s grasp in order to defeat Ganon and save Zelda. Link is shown to be very stoic and silent, this is due to him not wanting to fall under the pressure of the expectations people have for him.
(should we talk about Ocarina's story/timeline? I think it's the most populaconsistent)
- Little Mac (credits: GentlemanBones)
Disregard weight classes, earn belts. "Little" Mackenzie LaMatta  is an orthodox swarmer boxer in the light flyweight division that let his Italian American heritage and youth in the Bronx get to his ego. His fists cashed the checks his mouth wrote all the same, and he's out-boxed people many times his weight and height, people with clear and obvious inhuman abilities, and an actual gorilla. Punching outside his weight class usually relies on more traditional outboxing techniques - waiting patiently for an opening, or baiting one out, while staying out of your opponent's reach. But when the playing field is more even, he tends to prefer the pressure game of a swarmer.
- Lucario (credits: freeCarpets)
By catching the Aura emanating from others, it can read their thoughts and movements." This Pokedex entry well defines the Fighting/Steel Warrior from Sinnoh. Aura is this Pokemon's main strength: he uses it in battle, he can use it to see invisible opponents, and he can sense the emotions and conditions of those up to a half mile away. His signature move is aura sphere, a projectile he uses in all sorts of situations.
- Lucas (credits: manfartwish; PKThron)
Many centures after the events of EarthBound (Ness), we meet Lucas from Tazmily, located on Nowhere Islands. After his mother is killed in a strange incident and his brother Claus is lost in his quest for revenge, Lucas sees the world around him transform to an uncanny and oppressive place. The animals being combined together into mechanical beasts, or the introduction of commerce and commercialism in their quaint little town. How could these things be happening after all they known for years is peaceful farming? Lucas is put through a lot to find the answers and when he does, you might just be a crybaby too.
He sets out with the princess Kumatora, the thief Duster and his dog Boney to nudge society back into place. It turns out that a time-traveling Porky is trying to claim this world as his own, and it's up to our party to stop him once and for all!
- Lucina (credits: PKThoron)
Witnessing the apocalypse first-hand, Lucina and her friends travel back in time to prevent her father's untimely death and to stop the evil god Grima from ending humanity. Disguised as the mysterious swordsman Marth, named after the Hero King of yore, she tries to quietly alter the course of fate, but ends up embroiled in curious matters such as shopping for unusual dresses for her to-be mother and protecting her sibling from giant insects.
- Luigi (credits: reallysourpine24; SwagGuy99)
Luigi is one of the oldest characters in the history of Nintendo, coming after Mario, Donkey Kong and Mr. Game and Watch. Mario’s younger and often overshadowed twin brother who accompanies him on many of his adventures. His first appearance was in Mario Bros. where he helped Mario clean up the sewers. He also appeared in Super Mario Bros. 2 where he showed off his amazing jumping prowess, being able to out-jump Toad, Princess Peach, and even Mario! Luigi developed a personality of his own, being portrayed as scared and cowardly in Super Smash Bros. (64), Paper Mario (64), and Luigi's Mansion. He even has his own year in 2013 to celebrate his 30th birthday.
- Mario (credits: insertusernamehere51)
A cheerful plumber who lives in the Mushroom Kingdom. Often has to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser, but is a man of many talents and skills, including medicine, go-karting, tennis, golf, etc. He, along with his brother Luigi, was brought to his parents via stock, but not before being dropped on Yoshi's Island after a kidnapping attempt from Kamek.
- Marth (credits: insertusernamehere51)
Marth is the prince of the kingdom of Altea, on the continent of Archanea. He is a dexcendant of the legendary hero Anri, who defeated the evil Earth Dragon Medeus with the Falchion, a sword forged from the fang of the Divine Dragon Naga.
Centuries later, Medeus returns and, with his newfounded Dolhr Empire, invaded the continent. Marth's father was killed, his sister was kidnapped, the Falchion was stolen, and Marth himself was exiled to the kingdom of Thalys, where, two years later, he would lead an army to liberate the continent from Medeus, wielding the Fire Emblem and the Falchion, much like his ancestor Anri.
He would come to defeat Medeus a second time, and his feats granted him the title of the Hero-King. Chrom and Lucina are his descendants.
- Mega Man (credits: insertusernamehere51; SkullBarrier)
Originally called Rock, he is a robot created by Dr Thomas Light to be his lab assistant and construction of his dream projects, the Robot Masters. These 'Robot Masters' were highly specialized robots with advanced AI algorithms, made to command other, lesser robots in their tasks, and carry tasks too dangerous for humans on their own.
Assisting Dr. Light in his construction of the Robot Masters was his old colleague from Robot University, Albert W. Wily. However, Wily grew bitter as Dr. Light continued to receive all the credit and notoriety for the Robot Masters, while he was left in his shadow. So, in a fit of jealousy, Dr. Wily reprogrammed the six original Doctor Light Numbers- Cut Man, Guts Man, Bomb Man, Ice Man, Fire Man, and Elec Man. Then, he proceeded to wreak havoc on the city (and the world) using their might.
After Dr. Light's creations turned against him, Rock asked Dr. Light to modify him into a super fighting robot to help take down Dr. Wily, and thus, Rock became Mega Man. Equipped with the Mega Buster and a sense first justice, Mega Man was ready to rock and roll. Ever since he became Mega Man, he has put a stop to Wily's schemes. He possesses the ability to take the powers of the Robot Masters he defeats and use them to his desire.
- Meta Knight (credits: insertusernamehere51; DispenserHead)
Originally working under King Dedede, the mysterious Meta Knight acts as both a mentor and a rival to Kirby. Once, he tried to take over Dream Land in his flying battleship Halberd invorder to end it's lazy and apathetic way of life. Of course, Kirby stopped him, but Meta Knight still holds strong ideals and a hunger for combat. What lies under his mask, you ask? Well, knowing raises more questions than answers, we do know, however, that he is the same species as Kirby.
- Mewtwo (credits: 11Slimeade11)
Created using the DNA from Mew, a legendary Pokémon, Mewtwo was designed to be the strongest Pokémon. It was created on February 6th, and due to horrific genetic experiments and splicing, it became vicious and had to be sealed away in Cerulean Cave, where only those stronger than the Elite Four can pass.
In terms of personality, Mewtwo's personality seems to be more similar to it's movie incarnation, rather than being a feral and brutal Animal like stated in the games, being a more cold and calculated supervillain type.
- Mii Fighter (credits: Jul1usC)
The Miis originated as a 'player analogue' for the Wii system when it launched in late 2006. The best example of them is the Mii Channel on the Wii, where people could make their own version of themselves, or wild characters. Since then, they've appeared as alternate character options in Nintendo's games, such as a driver in Mario Kart Wii, or playable in Mario Party 8.
They had a larger appearance in the 3DS era with the introduction of the Mii Plaza, where 3DS owners could make their own Miis and pass them along to others with Spotpass, and the Plaza had its own minigames, where the Fighter types most likely originated.
The sword fighter mostlikely originated from the Find Mii game where you had to recruit different colored Mii's to defeat enemies. The gunner most likely took inspiration from the game Mii Force, where you piloted a spaceship with guns. The brawler i actually dont have an idea sorry.
- Mr. Game & Watch (credits: ...)
Be the first.
- Ness (credits: reidiantdawn; PKThron)
He appears in the game Earthbound, the second game in the MOTHER series. Once a normal boy who loved baseball and lived in Onett, his life was changed when a meteorite crashed near his home. Ness and Pokey (aka Porkey) encounters an alien named Buzz-Buzz, a psychic insect from the future who tells him a prophecy about four heroes who will defeat Gigyas.
Buzz-Buzz is soon killed by Pokey's mother, so he passes his quest of saving the world onto Ness. Ness is given the Sound Stone and talked with recording eight melodies from eight special locations. On the way, he gains three allies - Jeff, Paula, and Poo, and travels to a variety of places, including a town ruled by a cult, a twisted version of Fourside, and his own version of Magicant. Ness's neighbour Porky, who ends up working with Giygas, attempts everything to stop our heroes and take over the world himself...
In his game, Ness is actually incapable of learning PSI (aka PK) Fire, Thunder, and Starstorm. His signature move is PSI Rockin', which the player can change the name of in the beginning of the game.
(Oh, and Ness and Lucas aren't really related. The only thing they share is one certain villain.)
- Olimar (credits: KarateManJoe)
Olimar is a space delivery man who works at Hocotate Freight, a company regularly struggling with debt, to support his family: his wife, two children, and his dog Bulby. He's slightly conceited in nature but shows great love and devotion to his family, and has an interest in biology.
During the events of Pikmin 1, Olimar took a space vacation but crash landed on PNF-404 (Which is Earth many years in the future), scattering his ship across the planet. Here he discovers Pikmin, plant-animal hybrids who were on the verge of extinction. The Pikmin treat Olimar as their leader, and their partnership benefits both of them greatly: Olimar returns home and the Pikmin learn to fend for themselves.
It should also be noted that Olimar has a deep baritone voice not used in the Smash Bros games for some reason.
