Hudson Soft has created some legendary characters and games over the years. If Mario is like Coca Cola and Sonic is like Pepsi than the Hudson Soft gang are kinda like the 7UP / A&W Root Beer / RC Cola brands -- less overexposed, but still good!

So I was wondering who your favorite is?

Bomberman?
Bonk?
Master Higgins?
Milon?

Despite being a huge TG16 fan, I'm going choose Master Higgins as my favorite mascot. The skateboarding island fat boy just has such a classic look and I like that he was inspired by a really amazing Japanese player. And for being a cutesy platformer, the series is viscous like a baseball bat with nails in it! Plus, he had dinosaur friends way before Mario's Yoshi.

P.S. However, admittedly, my favorite single game from this bunch of characters would be "DoReMi Fantasy: Milon's DokiDoki Adventure."

Bombman hands-down for Hudson; I like the games and the minimalist look is terrific.

While I like the others, no one can dethrone Bomberman as their mascot. For Hudson, Bomberman to them is what Mario is to Nintendo.

Without a doubt, Bomberman's stock has raised the most over the years.

However, I think there is something to be said about the importance of Bonk. Until Sonic came out in 1991, Bonk was clearly the Pepsi of platformers, at least here in America; although, I know you Europeans really loved your Alex Kidd and Master System! Also, the Bonk years were also the PC Engine / TG16 years, perhaps the most exciting time ever for Hudson Soft.

I totally agree! DoRemi Fantasy and Sin & Punishment are my 2 favorite import downloads on the VC.

Milon proved in a big way, that he could take on adventure with as much quality as Super Mario World.

I'm totally for Bonk. I'd go for Bomberman, but then I remembered Bomberman Act Zero and promptly vomited. So Bonk it is!
