Nintendo characters often come with job roles attached - Mario and Luigi are plumbers, Animal Crossing's Isabelle is a secretary, and Peach is a, well, a princess who doesn't do anything other than be rescued and looked after by an army of Toads? Who knows?

That doesn't mean that they can't enjoy other activities or job roles, though, and Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream recently asked its readers which characters would make the best sightseeing guide. You can see the votes for yourself below - it's probably not all that surprising to see that Isabelle is the number one choice.

  1. Isabelle (Animal Crossing)
  2. Mario (Super Mario)
  3. Toad (Super Mario)
  4. Navi (The Legend of Zelda)
  5. Kirby (Kirby)
  6. Anna (Fire Emblem)
  7. Toriel (UNDERTALE)
  8. Sans (UNDERTALE)
  9. Zelda (The Legend of Zelda)
  10. Link (The Legend of Zelda)

Do you agree? We'd argue Link would be pretty rubbish considering he doesn't really talk.
