Does Samus ever take off her mask? If not, how do we know she doesn't look like a man?

Actually, we knew she was a woman before super smash brothers, but I don't think we ever saw her face until then.

I think the general public decided this one a long time ago, as evidenced by Nintendo continuing to be relatively successful and Sega being relegated to a 3rd party publisher role.

Sega != Sonic
Nintendo != Mario

That is like saying that every game made for Atari systems was crap, because Atari no longer makes hardware.

Here's my case:

1. Mario can break bricks with his head.
2. Mario collects money, not girly rings.
3. Mario has a real job.
4. Mario can shoot fireballs when he has his white overalls on.
5. When Mario has his white overalls on in one of those Mushroom houses with the chests, he can flick boogers.
6. Mario wears overalls.
7. Mario + Princess Peach. Sonic + ...Tails?
8. Can you remember the Sonic soundtrack offhand?
9. Mario can go through pipes.
10. Mario has a go-kart.
11. Mario can do backflips, wall-hops, triple-jumps, and butt-drops.
12. Mario was friends with Bowser in Mario RPG. Has sonic ever been friends with Dr. Eggman?
13. Mario wins without superspeed.
14. Mario has a pet dinosaur that can spit eggs at will.
15. Mario is Italian.
16. Mario has a sweet mustache.
17. Mario can surf on turtle shells.
18. Most of us know Mario's voice. Do we know Sonic's?
19. Red turtle shells.
20. Triple red turtle shells.

And with a little assistance from Googlism:

21. mario is truly super
22. mario is just a friend with the ladies
23. mario is toads illigetimate father yep
24. mario is supposedly fighting against a tyrannical despot
25. mario is everywhere
26. mario is a speaker with a national reputation for motivating young people with disabilities and educating the general public on a variety of disability
27. mario is a long one
28. mario is kleine patat te boven door ward op den brouw na een korte carrière als wegrenner ontwikkelde mario de clercq
29. mario is poised to become the next usher or tevin campbell
30. mario is apparently the best assassin to have ever lived in dragaera
31. mario is so fat

Tails can fly. Knuckles can climb walls and fly. It's not cool for the main character to get all the cool stuff.

Who would want to?

wwarnick wrote:13. Mario wins without superspeed.
If "Mario can do backflips, wall-hops, triple-jumps, and butt-drops," it's no wonder he wins. It is, after all, a game which is designed to be conquered.

wwarnick wrote:14. Mario has a pet dinosaur that can spit eggs at will.
Who is infinitely more charming than the man himself.

We'll ignore that one. I'm sure most Italians would disagree with me, but I don't see this one as an advantage.

wwarnick wrote:16. Mario has a sweet mustache.
Sonic has savoury hair. And moustaches aren't cool.

wwarnick wrote:17. Mario can surf on turtle shells.
Sonic can snowboard.

Yes, and they're equally annoying.

Ninjas don't break stuff with their whole body. They either kick, chop, or headbutt. Mario's specialty is a derivative of the headbutt, while Sonic needs to throw his whole body at walls at high speeds to break them. Mario's the man.

This makes the Mario games more difficult. Thanks for the help. And besides, what will Sonic do after he saves the world? He doesn't have any money. Mario's planning ahead. Mario is proactive.

It just goes to show how much more charismatic Mario is.

You're right. Sonic the Hedgehog, I guess, was not designed to be conquered. Got me there.

On a turtle shell? What about when there's no snow? I'd call that limited.

Ninjas could break more if they used their whole body.

Rings can be sold. Sonic won't need any money; in his world, heroes get the recognition they deserve.

No it isn't. Luigi is a sorry excuse for a sidekick. And I know he glides; it's still more than Mario.
