Yep, I'm King Dedede's well educated brother. He's more of a tyrant, I stick to the day to day admin issues of running Dream Land.

Pay is OK, but most of my wages seem to somehow end up in the King's pocket. No lack of healthy tomatoes, in fact all Dream Land dollars are convertible into Maxim Tomatoes, It's the reserve currency.

@Mariofan
No, in fact I was largely responsible for their rapprochement in recent years. They tend to team up against more abstract beings now. I'm glad I just have to deal with making the Warp Stars run on time.

1. "Mario is just a Sonic rip-off!".... Nobody, says that, but some do say the opposite. Point for Mario.

2. "Mario games have been kinda lame since Nintendo got out of the console wars!" .... Nobody, says that, but some do say the opposite. Point for Mario.

3. Mario rescues a hot princess while Sonic is preoccupied with freeing squirrels and rabbits. Point for Mario.

4. Has Billy Mitchell or Steve Wiebe ever set a record with a Sonic game?! Point for Mario.

5. Bowser and Donkey Kong are way cooler enemies than Dr. Robotnik (aka the community college professor from Hell.) Point for Mario.

So by my math it is 5/0 in favor of Mario.

1 - okay, so every platformer is a rip-off of another platformer. (do you really believe everything you hear?)

2 - sonic still has new, kickass handheld games. and more of them.

3 - what an excellent, mature and totally relevant argument. i commend you good sir, your rationale and poise are unmatchable

4 - ditto # 3. also, sonic records are different, and a speed run actually means a speed run. did you just finish watching the king of kong or something?

5 - you know, kidnapping one lady who's apparently never heard of a restraining order (or gun) totally trumps repeatedly fragmenting the world, enslaving entire species and turning them into living batteries, shooting the moon in half, etc.

P.S. - I really shouldn't have had to respond, but your rationale is very poor. Each series has their own strong points, so i suggest you view things from what could be seen as a less fanboy-ish point of view.

Also, CowLaunch, thats pretty funny.

Can someone who has "Genesis" as his middle name hate Sonic?

So, of course, I like some Sonic games, mainly the older ones.

As a character I prefer Sonic, he has a better design, it was meant to be a hedgehog, Mario was made the way he is in order to save some system memory; of course Mario has more good games than Sonic imo.

Sonic Adventure was decent. I haven't played Sonic Heroes.

I think the peak of the series was Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic CD, Sonic SMS, and Sonic R.

If you haven't noticed by some people's icons, there are actually a lot of SEGA or sonic fans on the site. Considering most of the best handheld games in this competition have been Sonic's (in my opinion, for example, Sonic Advance 1-3, Battle, Rush 1 and 2 and Chronicles) have been on Nintendo handhelds, as well as the fact that most sonic games are playable on Wii on or off of the VC, I think its a fair question.

Yeah, but remember most people here like Nintendo more then Sega, and Mario's the most popular video game character(and series) ever, with more games than anyone else.

... I didn't say there weren't. (And believe me, I've looked on at Mario's popularity with green-eyed jealousy). All I said was that it was a fair question.

Even though I generally prefer the Mario games (let's face it, only the Megadrive Sonic games and CD can be called awesome - maybe Sonic Adventure at the time) I'm still going to say Sonic is the better character. At least from a design point of view.

I've always seen Sonic as the perfect video game character. His design is more than being a cool, uniquely styled blue hedgehog - he's also designed to fit perfectly with his game environment, and that really is quite an accomplishment. Let me explain - since he's a hedgehog he can spin into a ball, he's also been given super fast speed. To reflect this, his game environment uses these features to make the best possible type of gameplay for such a character - fast rollercoaster style levels mixed with pinball elements. He uses his spikes to kill enemies and break through walls, his speed allows him to run up verticle surfaces and around loops and he can spin in a ball to be flipped around like a pinball and speed through narrow tunnels - it's ingenious.

You could easily put Sonic in Mario's game environment and it'd still be a fun playable game. However if you put Mario in Sonic's environment, he'd have trouble getting through all those obsticles that require Sonic's speed and spinning ability. This is where a lot of other mascot characters such as Crash Bandicoot have gone wrong - you can't just take an animal, give it "attitude" and expect it to be the next Sonic. You have to design a character that both looks awesome and has unique abilities that makes for a new and exciting game - because of this, Sonic is the only one who could have taken Mario's crown, by a long shot.

So, as a character, I'd say Sonic wins this. However, as great as his early games are, his new ones have gone way off track. Mario's games always offer great challenges, with lots to see, collect and do. They're all masterpieces - Sonic needs to get back on track and become a true contender with his games aswell.
