Weirdness: These Tombstones for Fallen Characters Show The Horrors of Nintendo Gaming

RIP Goomba, Koopa Troopa... oh no, Link!

Death is everywhere in video games. Mario ruthlessly stomps on turtles — or turtle-like things — Link falls in his efforts to save Hyrule, and heroic Knights suffer the indignity of dying in their underpants. It's a cruel, cruel world.

Sometimes the heroes die with a bit of sad music to accompany them, while Bowser's unfortunate minions are left unforgotten, simply stomped to oblivion as another clone takes their place. Thankfully ChinookCrafts has the answer with individual tombstones based on some of the most iconic characters in gaming. These are resin-based and have the appearance of stone, though picking up the full-set for a graveyard will set you back a fair amount of money.

But still, some welcome recognition for fallen heroes and villains.
