Who is better? Sonic or Mario?

Its a pretty popular question! I mean, nintendo and sega (not sure if both of them did) made a olympic games about Sonic team vs Mario team. Also Sonic made a guest appearance in super smash bros Brawl! So I want to know, Which character is best overall?

and then this happened, i shoved your face full of this:

"game theory disproved sonic's notion of running at the speed of sound, don't believe me. check out the video now.

and this is from my analysis of Mario's games + plus somebody elses post that has been copied and pasted."

"Mario is able to run significantly fast without tiring and jump five times his own height. He is extremely strong with the ability to repeatedly deliver forceful punches, crush enemies with his feet, and destroy bricks with his bare hands. He is also a expert in tennis, golf, kart racing, soccer, baseball, skiing, construction working, demoliton, pyrotechnics, plumbing, handywork, tightrope walking, animal training, hockey, medicine, painting, composing, oil spill cleanup, streetfighting, basketball, surfing, treasure hunting and spacetravel. In can sometimes fly, shoot hammers with deadly accuracy, shoot fireball out of his hands, survive a fall from on top of a castle, and swim like an olympic athelete while seldom (or never) taking a breath. On top of that, he spends most of his time rescuing people in need, (namely, a princess) from a dinosaur that also breathes fire, who lives in a heavily-guarded castle while everthing in sight tries to attack him. He is smart, fast, strong, skilled, and absolutely fearless."

"and this as well" (which is what i wrote by the way).

"Mario can jump at least ten feet in the air, can run at 20-30mph and not break a single sweat even though he is only human, he can punch blocks so hard they explode (misconception: people think that Mario hits blocks with his head even though his fist is clearly above his head, indicating that he punches it, don't know why this doesn't work on enemies, but hey, i don't have a problem with it), he also jumps on goombas and causes their innards to spread about in a horrific manner (this is also true), he can throw highly explosive incendiary fireballs at his enemies causing them to explode into ash. he can also punch a fleshbag 30 feet away from where he is standing and kick them 30 feet high into the air as well, causing them to explode in a bloody manner and have all their innards launched away. (misconception 2: people think that goombas are walking fungus even though they have legs, a lower body, eyes, eyebrows,mouth, teeth and a tongue, they also charge after Mario when they spot him. indicating they are made of flesh, blood and bone), he has also killed so many Goombas that it's darn close to genocide. And then there's Koopas, Piranha Plants, Bob-ombs, Shy-guys, Lakitus, Boos, Dry Bones, Bloopers, and so many others, not to mention all the boss fights that always end in death, except for Bowser and his kids. And what for? Money and women are the most common reasons for murder in the real world, and apparently in the video-game world also: after all, isn't Mario doing it for Princess Peach and a bunch of coins? This just goes to prove we live in a violent world: the one video-game character with the most blood on his hands is also the most popular of them all, plus he can ground pound at an estimate of 80mph in his games, this ground pound can also smash through a limitless amount of blocks that are either 2/3rd's his height or 1 1/3rd's his height, he can also slice his enemies in half with the sheer blunt force of his boomerangs or tanooki tail, so yeah, Mario isn't exactly a weakling either, Mario's body fat appears to balance out his whole body even though we humans know that a chubby plumber would NEVER be able to do the things that Mario does, indicating that all this chubby fat of his that balances his whole body out is ACTUALLY LARGE AMOUNTS OF MUSCLE that balance his body out! he also has a near unlimited amount of lives as well due to all his adventuring. so yeah, the stuff Mario does proves that basically Mario is better than sonic, feat wise."

Sonic is sleek, speedy, and polished. Mario is big, fat, and klutzy. He's also pretty gay with Luigi. But Sonic was way better when he was owned by old school Sega, instead of new and improved Nintendo.

Whereas Sonic can collect shield powerups that can do many of the things that Mario's powerups can do, and some can turn him into a super-powerful Chaos Emerald Entity, and in my opinion, that's cooler than being a flying raccoon.

while i think Mario is indeed better than sonic. let me say this. sonic's character are good...but this just makes sonic's characters somewhat insignificant:

"8. Mario's side characters usually get their own spotlight in their own series or games that feature them. tails is the only sonic character that has such a privilege other than shadow. but then again, most people consider that game to be horrible along with some of tails games. meanwhile, Mario's side characters are getting their own games that receive much better reception. some people prefer Wario over Mario on various forums." and even though they are playable (only in the classics). when a side character get's their own game, the competition is most likely screwed. sonic has had many bad games but he also many good games, this statements should clarify that a bit: "not only has Mario done spectacular things but he has also aged better than most other franchises and has also still been around for 30+ years and counting while still remaining king. sonic has managed to compete with Mario and send him running some times, but in the end. Mario won and sonic became a close second and sometimes a laughing stock until cod took that place in the gaming community. sonic is good and he has many advantages over Mario. but so far, Mario has more and better advantages over sonic. and even though he has had some bad games, seriously, who remembers mario is missing, mario's time machine and hotel mario? exactly!". sonic is actually pretty lame, but he has his fair share of awesomeness. if you have played his games you know what i mean. sonic's storylines remained good but they kinda went downhill after sonic adventure 2.

I belive sonic is better than mario but imma give both sides some streghths of what i know of

Sonic

1.faster than the speed of sound

2.He is actually stronger than people thing (he moves big objects out his way) play some of the games

3.Super sonic makes sonic invinceable sucky spell for as long as he has the cahos emeralds

4.Cahos control as long as he has emeralds (ppl who dont know it freezes you in time for a certen ammount of time)

5.He goes right through most metal objects like -cough- robots -cough- i dont think human flesh can wistand that at all

6.Ring power

Mario

1.strong

2.kinda faster than a normal human

3.Star power when star is there very limited time

4Mushrooms (grows bigger)

5.Flowers (Fire power)

6.Hats dosent know much about hats (metal mario, invisibl marioshort time)

7.Racoon (Flying)

Thats all i can think of for both of there powers reason y i think that sonic would win is well mario is human he is not gonna see a blue cannon ball comeing at him at the speed of sound...andi dont think a human can surivive a hit like that (or anything else)

Sonic is pretty fast, but hes not fast while under water! He is unable to swim, and as a result, Mario has the advantage with his Frog Suit and can breath while in the water with it. In addition to this, he can overcome currents in his path, can stop instantly in a single point, and swim in any directions. Of course his running and walking ability is decreased while on ground and is reduced to having to hop, however in situations like those, he can use a Koopa Shell to be run on foot. With this in mind, all Mario has to do is wait for Sonic to dash towards him and tricks him into going under water with him. He can then equip his Frog Suit and attack Sonic continuously till he has drowned.

For Sonic achieving his super form, he only has a limited amount of time due to it having to require rings and draining those rings at a fast rate. All Mario has to do here is stall time till he changes back into normal. And this is possible with the power ups of Metal Mario, Mega Mushroom, Star Power, and Red Mushrooms that allows him to take more than one hit.

Mario has High Stamina (Goes through a bunch of levels without getting tired), Superhuman Strength (Able to lift Bowser in Super Mario 64 and even throw him far), Superhuman durability (Can survive being crushed by a Thwomp) and Skilled Combatant (Able to fight hundreds of enemies effectively). I believe one spinning ball attack isn't enough to K.O Mario.

For sonic using Chaos Control to gain an advantage, Mario wouldn't have to worry so much about that. Sonic is reluctant to using chaos control.

Sonic is better than mario because he is the world's fastest and coolest hedgehog. In his games and shows, he has different storylines. Sonic saved the world more times than mario did, and he is not a quitter. However, mario always has the same intention to save the princess from bowser in his adventure games and shows. Most of the time without any power-ups, mario only jumps, kicks, and squashes animals. Sonic does not need over thirty power-ups like mario to fight against enemies. The only power-ups he needs to depend on are rings and 7 chaos emeralds and 7 super emeralds to become hyper sonic to destroy mario by using his flash. Sonic has better attacks without any power-ups such as, spindashing, rolling into a ball, and jump on enemies to use homing attacks. In sonic advance 1, he has another special move where he can trip robots and flip backwards. He has a better sense of humor than mario. The characters in his games are better, faster, and stronger than the mario characters. In the sonic games, you can hear the characters speaking English instead of only using captions in mario games. Also, he has better music in his games. Sonic has so many other transformations such as, werehog, darkspine sonic, excalibur sonic, dark sonic, super sonic, and hyper sonic. He has the ability to combine with shadow to become hyper shadic to take down mario. The type of people you see around mario are basically toad people and clouds with smiles on their faces. However, sonic is better than mario because you see more friendly faces and actual people around him, and has a bigger fanbase. Finally, sonic has to fight against harder enemies such as, shadow, knuckles, mephiles, dr. robotnik's robots, chaos 6, and other enemies.

Side: Sonic!
9 points

I have to be honest here, but they can both do a lot of things. However, Sonic seems to be more powerful overall. Here's what they both can do:

Mario:

Powers

-Jumps four times his own height into the air

-Throws fireballs

-Can walljump

-Almost limitless stamina, takes long periods of time to tire

-Can use a variety of powerups, including ice cannons, growth-shrooms, and jetpacks

Weaknesses

-Short

-Fat

-Bad reflexes and slow to react to danger

-Doesn't have any super-forms beyond that of a penguin/racoon/frog suit, which doesn't do very much

Sonic:

Powers

-Can run up walls

-Quills are sharp enough to cut through solid steel

-Can run faster than sound

-Can turn into a razor blade that moves faster than sound

-Can walljump

-Can shoot energy blasts that have a longer range than Mario's fireballs

-Quick reflexes

-Superhuman strength

-Super Sonic is more powerful than Starman Mario because he can fly

-Can run up walls and ceilings when moving fast enough

-Rings in Sonic games are more common than coins in Mario games

-When holding a gem, can teleport

-When holding seven gems, can fly, create forcefields, and give off blinding light at will

Weaknesses

-Not a very good swimmer compared to Mario

-Powerups are not very versatile

-Attempting to run too fast while not in Super form will result in loss of powers for about 15 minutes afterwards

-Bad peripheral vision due to interconnecting eyes (ew, one reason I don't want to be the guy)

All in all, they're both very powerful, but Sonic's ability to move very fast and attack at the same time gives him a huge advantage, because he can attack very rapidly as long as he has somethig to bounce off of after an attack. Even if he doesn't, he moves so fast that Mario's bad reflexes won't allow him to dodge in time (and it's REALLY hard to dodge something that's moving at the speed of sound.) Also, Mario loses his powers PERMANENTLY when he gets hit by something. Sonic doesn't lose his powers, he just loses his health rings, which he can quickly and easily regain. This also gives him an edge, since Mario can't get his growth-shrooms back if he loses them, unlike the rings. It's a tough battle, but in the end, Sonic will come out on top. They'll emerge from the battle arena with Sonic dragging Mario's body, full of spindash-shaped holes that go all the way through, panting and in desperate need of a medkit and rings. Maybe with a broken arm, too.

This just goes to prove we live in a violent world: the one video-game character with the most blood on his hands is also the most popular of them all, plus he can ground pound at an estimate of 80mph in his games, this ground pound can also smash through a limitless amount of blocks that are either 2/3rd's his height or 1 1/3rd's his height, he can also slice his enemies in half with the sheer blunt force of his boomerangs or tanooki tail, so yeah, Mario isn't exactly a weakling either, Mario's body fat appears to balance out his whole body even though we humans know that a chubby plumber would NEVER be able to do the things that Mario does, indicating that all this chubby fat of his that balances his whole body out is ACTUALLY LARGE AMOUNTS OF MUSCLE that balance his body out! he also has a near unlimited amount of lives as well due to all his adventuring. so yeah, the stuff Mario does proves that basically Mario is better than sonic, feat wise."

I respect both games-they are 2 of the classic gaming franchises with FF, Megaman, and Zelda. Mario was revolutionary for its gameplay, you really liked navigating through the levels and getting to level boss. But Sonic did things Mario could never imagine. Sonic could blast up a hill and speed out of the seen. Remember chemical zone in Sonic 2-amazing level. Sonic is so fast hear and it awesome how he defies gravity when he jumps of a spring. Supersonic is surreal. The only that mario's got on Sonic is the various suits (but thats something he got from Keith Courage TG-16).

Some of you mario fans may not have noticed but mario only saves peach and doesn't give a damn what is going on with the world. Sure mario can throw fireballs but when he gets hit he looses the fire power. Sonic already has his power. When ever he gets hit, he just looses his rings but can get them back quickly. Mario doesn't stand a chance against sonic cause sonic could go super and mario is out of the fight. Sonic wins. I just want to say thank you to SEGA for creating an awesome hedgehog.

Well it really depends if you are more a little gamer that hates the awesome stuff (Mario) also Mario games ALWAYS have the SAME storyline, sure Sonic does to, but they change it up, so im with Sonic ALL THE WAY!

Storylines:

Sonic- beat eggman and save the world (depends on the games)

Mario- save a princess from a fat dragon (always the same)

Ps: don't believe me? then think about this Super Sonic vs Perfect Chaos

or

Mario vs Bowser

yea.... so I think mario games are for noobs

Sonic is better. First of all everyone who thinks mario is better than sonic, you guys are idiots. Mario needs to lose weight. Sonic games have more action and in Mario games its pretty much the same story all the time. If Sonic and Mario were fighting, Sonic would win hands down. Mario is fat and all he does is just stomp on his foes. Maybe Mario should work out so he could lose some weight. And he could learn how to fight better. Another reason why sonic is better because all mario does is save that princess peach who had it with bowser(they are a bad couple) and sonic saves the world.SONIC U ROCK!!!!! YOU'RE THE BEST HEDGEHOG EVER!!!!!!

1.Which is more fun: Killing an annoying little dinasaur and saving the retarded princes,or, destoying robots, causing explosins left and right, and defeating an evil scientist ALL IN ONE?

2. Sonic's first game sold more copies than 10 of Mario's games put together.

3.Sonic is faster, smarter, cooler,unique, and follows his heart. Mario does whatever his beloved Princess Peach tells him to.

4. Sonic has way more characters.

5. Yes, Mario & Sonic BOTH had comics and a show, but Sonic's are still on and are still popular today. PLUS Sonic has 2 shows and a movie!

6.Sonic is way more fun.

7. Mario is fat, stupid, and pointless.

8. Luigi is flat out gay. We ALL know it.

9.Yes, Sonic is very unrealistic, but why be realistic when you could have FUN?

10. Mario is childish. His clouds have smiley faces. SMILEY FACES?! REALLY?!!!!

I just like how Sega is always trying to expand Sonic to new devices. I enjoy the Chaos too, you dont have that in mario... also, Mario and Sonic are fairly equal in powerups, but because of Sonic's natural speed, he would win against Mario in a fight...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aq_dOLFmxA

Just watch that deathbattle, it will prove that sonic is better...

All in all I just think that Sonic is more fun for me than Mario, although I will admit that I did enjoy Super Mario Galaxy... great game, but not as great as sonic.

This is another example of one-sidedness. Many people respond this way when Sonic or Mario is mentioned. I think it is an immature way to approach the situation.

"2. sonic is essentially a very loose copy of Mario with smoother landscapes, blocks that sit on the ground, supped up jump attack and faster gameplay with a somewhat larger variety of enemies (platforming games only)."

this is also somewhat true. sonic has the invincibility box that is sometimes hidden like power stars. also, the ring boxes are loose copies of mystery blocks from the Mario series. now you could argue that they have 10 'rings' and not coins. but considering the fact you can a 1 up in every act of the first sonic game, they are basically the same thing. oh and Mario has 44 different power ups as of now. not to mention, sonic's jump attack is really just a supped up version of Mario's jump. after all, both jumps kill enemies. plus rings are really just a bland copy of Mario's coins, the difference is the sheer amount of them and that's it. and even though rings protect sonic from damage. they basically have the same purpose. not to mention, the shield box in sonic 1 is basically a mega mushroom! see, sega made a good game. but they kinda copied Mario "and that's no good". so sega doesn't rock. they made a good game, but their copy cats. not to mention, needing rings in order to survive is really lame. meanwhile, Mario, even though needing a mushroom in order to grow to 'super' form is also KINDA lame. but using drugs in order to grow makes a BIT more sense than collecting rings that he barely hold onto.

Both are great, no doubt! But Mario is nearly 100% worthless in a fight without items, weapons or assistance from other characters like Luigi and Yoshi. While Sonic has used those things before as well, he has still proven to be very tough without them. With that in mind, it is obvious that Sonic is the naturally more skilled character.

Sonic ftw!

Yeah I mean sonic and shadow would beat every mario character. Just sonic and shadow! That's lame I mean sonic would kick his butt. And in death battle sonic won. So no more "who would win in a fight mario or sonic?" Because sonic will win. And in death battle they screwed him out of all his basic moves,and they greatly reduced sonic & Super sonic's power just so the fight would look cool! And sonic still won! And he could just snatch using weapon grab from sonic championship and use his own power ups against him.

i think both sonic and mario have changed the industry greatly, but i root for sonic because ummmm...........SONIC IS AWWWESOMEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! SONIC CAN KICK MARIOS BUTT ANYDAY! no offense to any mario fans, but sonic way cooler and better because sonic saves the planet from total destruction and has girls all over him while mario save a weak princess who cant even defend herself from somethin u put on a frikin salad.( and quite frankly, he'll never really get princess peach). mario waits for time to fly by so he can do its job. but sonic so fast that time itself waits for sonic to fly by!!!(cause he faster than time obviuosly)!!!!!!! MMMaaaannnnnnn..... i've been wanting to say that for weeks!!

Mario can jump at least ten feet in the air, can run at 20-30mph and not break a single sweat even though he is only human, he can punch blocks so hard they explode (misconception: people think that Mario hits blocks with his head even though his fist is clearly above his head, indicating that he punches it, don't know why this doesn't work on enemies, but hey, i don't have a problem with it), he also jumps on goombas and causes their innards to spread about in a horrific manner (this is also true), he can throw highly explosive incendiary fireballs at his enemies causing them to explode into ash. he can also punch a fleshbag 30 feet away from where he is standing and kick them 30 feet high into the air as well, causing them to explode in a bloody manner and have all their innards launched away. (misconception 2: people think that goombas are walking fungus even though they have legs, a lower body, eyes, eyebrows,mouth, teeth and a tongue, they also charge after Mario when they spot him. indicating they are made of flesh, blood and bone), he has also killed so many Goombas that it's darn close to genocide. And then there's Koopas, Piranha Plants, Bob-ombs, Shy-guys, Lakitus, Boos, Dry Bones, Bloopers, and so many others, not to mention all the boss fights that always end in death, except for Bowser and his kids. And what for? Money and women are the most common reasons for murder in the real world, and apparently in the video-game world also: after all, isn't Mario doing it for Princess Peach and a bunch of coins? This just goes to prove we live in a violent world: the one video-game character with the most blood on his hands is also the most popular of them all, plus he can ground pound at an estimate of 80mph in his games, this ground pound can also smash through a limitless amount of blocks that are either 2/3rd's his height or 1 1/3rd's his height, he can also slice his enemies in half with the sheer blunt force of his boomerangs or tanooki tail, so yeah, Mario isn't exactly a weakling either, Mario's body fat appears to balance out his whole body even though we humans know that a chubby plumber would NEVER be able to do the things that Mario does, indicating that all this chubby fat of his that balances his whole body out is ACTUALLY LARGE AMOUNTS OF MUSCLE that balance his body out! he also has a near unlimited amount of lives as well due to all his adventuring. so yeah, the stuff Mario does proves that basically Mario is better than sonic, feat wise.

I think the whole Sonic vs. Mario argument is totally a one-sided issue. I enjoy playing Mario games. Sometimes it's okay to have some simple, slow-paced fun. But then again, sometimes you want an adrenaline rush that makes you pee your pants. Am I allowed to say pee? I didn't read the site rules (who does?) But what I'm trying to say is that Mario and Sonic are both awesome. Even though Mario has been doing better, Sonic still has a special place in my heart. SA2B? Sonic the Hedgehog 3? Sonic 2? Super Mario Galaxy? New Super Mario Bros.? The original freakin Mario? Nevermind I suck at the original Mario.

Side: Sonic!

sonic awesome. so is mario, but sonic FTW!!! i love them both but im a sonic freak i have

at least 11 or 12 sonic games, one of them being a collection of all the originals(sonic mega collection), SO THATS ABOUT 18 SONIC GAMES!!!! SO COOL!!!

but even though mario had a big impact on the video game world, sonic had created a really unique and different style of video games, having a really big impact on the industry because it wasnt the average platforming game, but it added the element of speed and it was irreplaceable and is truly one of a kind. with mario, there are many games like that. sound familiar?

Side: Sonic!

sonic games are always new and original with things, and the levels are always creative,colorful, and mindnumbing, literally. when i wuz playin sonic colors, one of the levels started upsidedown and was full speed, filled with blues, reds, oranges, greens,yellows, like an entire rainbow and stars, so it was like that 4 ten seconds and when that part was over, i just stared at the screen like my brain was cut off and sonic ended up dying cuz he kept getting hit so. but sonic games give u extreme visual effects and blows ur mind away. look at this.

Sonic is definitely better. I always loved playing the Sonic games, but Mario is still pretty cool. I really like the Mario & Sonic Winter Olympic Games where all the characters from Sonic and Mario joined together in one awesome game. It was so cool. I've played most of the DS games for both, and I really enjoyed the Sonic characters more. Characters are a huge part in a video game and I LOVE the Sonic characters.

This has always been a struggle for gamers. What people need to realize is that different people have different things they want in video games.

Plot: Sonic

Music: Sonic

Gameplay: Tie, although Mario's gameplay has been getting old. Sonic's camera is not always the best, though.

Graphics: Sonic

Side Characters: Tie

Action: Sonic

Difficulty: Mario

Power ups: Mario

Cuteness: Mario

Humor: Sonic

Level design: Tie

Controls: Tie

Most realistic: Mario, but that is very close.

Graphical design: Sonic

Speed: Sonic

I like lots of action and plot, plus good controls, so Sonic wins for me.

Also, is this a debate over games or the actual characters?

I believe I can deliver a balanced argument, having played both the originals of Sonic and Mario and having a brother into Mario games, and I myself preferring Sonic games.

Here is my argument :D LET'S SEE YOU ARGUE BACK. I do love a good debate.

(I'm generalising a bit, please note. I have a life outside of Marioing and Sonicing, so I haven't played all of their games.)

Note 2 - don't take this too seriously. They are video game characters, if you are going to go into a rage because I backhanded dear old Mario, you need to go outside and do something character building or remotely interesting with your life (sorry)

Pro Mario1. One, I have never been one for Sonic games. I prefer the Mario layout, to explore and figure out the surroundings, and try to get things and ride Yoshi, oh the funs :') Mario Galaxy II, that was some awesome game. When my brother brought it, I was like 8D DERE IS A STARR. I want to be de starr.

Unfortunately, in my opinion, that and the first Galaxy, is the ONLY good thing I can say about Mario.

Pro Sonic1. By far, I prefer the Sonic characters. They are very fleshed out, and I believe Eggman to be a far better baddie than bowser. I mean, tbh, you only see that oversized, studded turtle once a game, on one level and he gets defeated pretty easily. Mildly disappointed.

2. Sonic characters are pretty neat. Silver, although originated from the eyebrow raiser that was 2006, is still darn cool, what with that telekinesis and sweepy white quills (yay). Mario is a plumber who is Italian. Who was trippy when they came up with that idea? I understand Sonic is a blue hedgehog, but think about it this way. You are told, not knowing Sonic or Mario, do you want to play a game about a lightning speed blue hedgehog or a overweight Italian plumber? You would say, punk, what are you on? But you get the idea.

3. Sonic is always out to save the world. He is always fighting to save so many people. There is no, I, me, myself in here. Sonic is a hero, are you be dammed to think otherwise.

Mario goes around rescuing his lady friend who is ALWAYS IN TROUBLE. I mean, while this is romantic, in a creepy way, firstly, old Mario needs to find a new, more self defensive girl, and secondly, with the exception of the two new galaxies, he needs to do something with impact.

Oh this argument is a TL;DR, and I need to go to school.

I will leave you this thought as you argue back and I get my arguments sorted out.

"Pro Sonic1. By far, I prefer the Sonic characters. They are very fleshed out, and I believe Eggman to be a far better baddie than bowser. I mean, tbh, you only see that oversized, studded turtle once a game, on one level and he gets defeated pretty easily. Mildly disappointed." bowsers feats may not be that glorious, but. let's take a look at bowser's build. he is three times higher and larger than Mario. according to vsauce, there is a limit to how big a human can be, bowser is very similar to mario's build, who is human by the way. in order to be as big as bowser you would need a much stronger material than bone in order to perform as well as bowser. and for all we know, there is probably an organic material stronger than bone. since bowser is based a bit off of dinosaurs, he most likely has dinosaur bones. after all, dinosaur fossils are very large and MUCH larger than a humans anatomy.

so bowser's existence is somewhat plausible, but surviving a fall into lava obviously isn't. and due to bowser's big build he most likely has big muscles to boot, making him WAAAAAAAYYYYYY stronger than mario. i'm not saying that bowser is better than eggman, in fact, i think eggman is BETTER than bowser.

sonic characters do have a lot of personality and qualities that make them very good. the problem? THEY ARE LIKE SKINNY AS STICKS!

seriously, look at them (most of them, excluding the fat ones) sonic's build is VERY unbalanced, he barely has any flesh on his arms and legs and even his stomach which is bigger than his arms and legs doesn't look any better either. and his head just looks like a giant ton flesh weighing sonic down, this applies to ALL sonic characters excluding the fat ones. sonic would BARELY have ANY energy to perform the feats he does in his games, it's just not possible. and even if you could, your body would most likely be ripped apart by the sheer force being exerted on your body.

even if sonic was a mutant. there's no way that you can drill through robots and run along massive obstacle courses with sonic's type of build, it's just completely unbalanced and the sonic characters look like Nazi death camp victims. even a fat man with an i.q. of 300 building a army of robots is more realistic than the sonic characters as a WHOLE.

Mario characters build is by far superior mainly because they have a very balanced build. even though their heads are rather large, unlike sonic characters, they are much more balanced. and the feats they perform are by far superior. look at this:

"Mario is able to run significantly fast without tiring and jump five times his own height. He is extremely strong with the ability to repeatedly deliver forceful punches, crush enemies with his feet, and destroy bricks with his bare hands. He is also a expert in tennis, golf, kart racing, soccer, baseball, skiing, construction working, demoliton, pyrotechnics, plumbing, handywork, tightrope walking, animal training, hockey, medicine, painting, composing, oil spill cleanup, streetfighting, basketball, surfing, treasure hunting and spacetravel. In can sometimes fly, shoot hammers with deadly accuracy, shoot fireball out of his hands, survive a fall from on top of a castle, and swim like an olympic athelete while seldom (or never) taking a breath. On top of that, he spends most of his time rescuing people in need, (namely, a princess) from a dinosaur that also breathes fire, who lives in a heavily-guarded castle while everthing in sight tries to attack him. He is smart, fast, strong, skilled, and absolutely fearless."

"and this as well" (which is what i wrote by the way).

"Mario can jump at least ten feet in the air, can run at 20-30mph and not break a single sweat even though he is only human, he can punch blocks so hard they explode (misconception: people think that Mario hits blocks with his head even though his fist is clearly above his head, indicating that he punches it, don't know why this doesn't work on enemies, but hey, i don't have a problem with it), he also jumps on goombas and causes their innards to spread about in a horrific manner (this is also true), he can throw highly explosive incendiary fireballs at his enemies causing them to explode into ash. he can also punch a fleshbag 30 feet away from where he is standing and kick them 30 feet high into the air as well, causing them to explode in a bloody manner and have all their innards launched away. (misconception 2: people think that goombas are walking fungus even though they have legs, a lower body, eyes, eyebrows,mouth, teeth and a tongue, they also charge after Mario when they spot him. indicating they are made of flesh, blood and bone), he has also killed so many Goombas that it's darn close to genocide. And then there's Koopas, Piranha Plants, Bob-ombs, Shy-guys, Lakitus, Boos, Dry Bones, Bloopers, and so many others, not to mention all the boss fights that always end in death, except for Bowser and his kids. And what for? Money and women are the most common reasons for murder in the real world, and apparently in the video-game world also: after all, isn't Mario doing it for Princess Peach and a bunch of coins? This just goes to prove we live in a violent world: the one video-game character with the most blood on his hands is also the most popular of them all, plus he can ground pound at an estimate of 80mph in his games, this ground pound can also smash through a limitless amount of blocks that are either 2/3rd's his height or 1 1/3rd's his height, he can also slice his enemies in half with the sheer blunt force of his boomerangs or tanooki tail, so yeah, Mario isn't exactly a weakling either, Mario's body fat appears to balance out his whole body even though we humans know that a chubby plumber would NEVER be able to do the things that Mario does, indicating that all this chubby fat of his that balances his whole body out is ACTUALLY LARGE AMOUNTS OF MUSCLE that balance his body out! he also has a near unlimited amount of lives as well due to all his adventuring. so yeah, the stuff Mario does proves that basically Mario is better than sonic, feat wise."

and that's just counting Mario. in my opinion, Mario and his friends are much better in terms of relationships. look at all 4 of the Mario and Luigi rpgs for gba, ds and 3ds. Mario and luigi are ALWAYS together in those games, they are always out for each other and fighting enemies and working together in order to surpass obstacles. and overall have much brighter personalities.

sonic's characters just seem to be side characters making minor appearances and not doing very much in today's sonic games. they used to be playable and used to show very bright attitudes and displayed a lot of teamwork. but that stopped after sonic 06 (and we all know how much that game sucked).

they used to have big roles in previous sonic games, and the only one with any big role in any sonic game nowadays is tails.

and all the mario characters show very bright personalities in the way they act and communicate with each other.

they even get their own games and have their own adventures. i know that tails had his own games and shadow did too. but those are rather mediocre and not really good games.

Mario games and characters receive much better care and don't usually have their creators running out on them and they don't usually make bad games.

although sonic did save the world MANY times, as i said before, they are basically sticks and their feats aren't exactly feasible or plausible within a realistic perspective. so they wouldn't exactly have the ability to save the world.

Mario on the other hand, as i said before in a copy and paste of an earlier post i made + another persons post means that Mario has a much better and bigger chance of being able to overcome the obstacles within his games.

so while sonic characters are struggling to get their overgrown heads off the ground, Mario and his friends are saving kingdoms, worlds, galaxies and even the entire universe from the evil clutches of the ever powerful bowser.

game theory disproved sonic's notion of running at the speed of sound, don't believe me. check out the video now.

and this is from my analysis of Mario's games + plus somebody elses post that has been copied and pasted.

Mario will forever PWN Sonic!!!!

First off Mario was Here FRIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Next, Sonic was only created for only two reasons: (and i'm not making this up, i actually got this from some TV special about video games)

1. Sega was jealous that Mario was making Nintendo so much money, so they tried (and FAILED) to make something that could compete

2. Sega wanted to show off how fast their graphics could go

so, in a nutshell, sonic's MEANINGLESS

next sonic doesn't make sense, he looks nothing like a hedgehog, he's BLUE, he can talk, He runs fast for no reason and collects rings and fights some dude who looks like a ball on stilts. and where did those ramps come from anyways?!

at least in Mario SOME things make sense. you CAN find coins randomly in real life, bricks DO exist as well as turtles, flowers, and mushrooms!

All HUMANS with a BRAIN, HEART and SOUL would KNOW Mario Double Pwns sonic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just because Sega made Sonic to increase their popularity to something on the order of Nintendo's doesn't make Sonic a bad series. And if you knew more about Sonic, you'd realize that all the things that "don't make sense" about Sonic are thoroughly explained. Read the Sonic News Network for god's sake.

Also, about Mario somehow making more sense, answer me this: Where in real life do you see EVIL turtles? Or flowers with eyes that give you fire powers? Since when are there anthropomorphic mushrooms or plumbers with super strength who do nothing but save a single person over and over again? My point is, Mario is slightly based on real concepts, but the way those concepts are used is just as strange as Sonic would be to someone that doesn't know about him.

As for your claim about all humans with a brain, heart, and soul, all humans have the first two by definition, and Sonic fans have just as much of a soul than Mario fans. And you can't prove that we don't.

My point is: Mario is just as strange as Sonic, and both are equally good franchises. I personally like Sonic somewhat better, but please, DON'T go around yelling, "All HUMANS with a BRAIN, HEART and SOUL would KNOW Mario Double Pwns sonic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PEACE OUT SUCKAZ!!!"

Sonic can run faster than the speed of sound, making him incredibly hard to dodge, and can extend his quills, which are razor-sharp by the way, while moving at said speeds in a Spin Attack. He can jump nearly as high as Mario, jump off walls, surround himself in a powerful comet of energy that makes him invincible, shoot blue energy blasts, home in on his targets while using a spin jump, run up walls and across ceilings, and more. While Mario breaks bricks with his hands, Sonic uses energy blasts or his quills to slice through them like hot butter. He can use various powerups that allow him to send out enormous blasts of fire, fly, drill through the ground, use fast-moving laser attacks, create black holes, etc. Sonic can breathe in space, glide afer shooting himself up into the air, and navigate rough terrain with ease. He's an expert at tricky obstacles, being able to jump across platforms hanging from the bottom of a mile-high blimp that can barely support his weight. Destroying monitors grants him abilities such as transforming into a streaking comet of fire, breathing underwater, bouncing off walls and ceilings, and attracting rings. With a single Chaos Emerald, Sonic, like Shadow, can use Chaos Powers such as teleportation, rapid striking of enemies, shockwaves of power, and spears of radioactivity that can punch through steel. With seven Chaos Emeralds, Sonic can transform into an invincible, golden-hued version of himself who can fly and use Chaos Powers without Emeralds: Super Sonic. Seven Super Emeralds transform him into the underwater-breathing, light-controlling, indestructable Hyper Sonic. Plus, he's excellent at solving intellectual puzzles, demonstrated in Sonic X and Sonic Heroes. If Mario is smart, fast, strong, skilled, and absolutely fearless, Sonic is very intelligent, impossibly quick, nearly indestructable, enormously experienced, and unfalteringly optimistic.

Thatis definitely longer than any of my arguments. I'm just saying. I like to play Mario games. I also like to play Sonic games. Why can't Mario and Sonic get along. A Mario and Sonic Crossover Platform game would be really neat.

"Mario can jump at least ten feet in the air, can run at 20-30mph and not break a single sweat even though he is only human, he can punch blocks so hard they explode (misconception: people think that Mario hits blocks with his head even though his fist is clearly above his head, indicating that he punches it, don't know why this doesn't work on enemies, but hey, i don't have a problem with it), he also jumps on goombas and causes their innards to spread about in a horrific manner (this is also true), he can throw highly explosive incendiary fireballs at his enemies causing them to explode into ash. he can also punch a fleshbag 30 feet away from where he is standing and kick them 30 feet high into the air as well, causing them to explode in a bloody manner and have all their innards launched away. (misconception 2: people think that goombas are walking fungus even though they have legs, a lower body, eyes, eyebrows,mouth, teeth and a tongue, they also charge after Mario when they spot him. indicating they are made of flesh, blood and bone), he has also killed so many Goombas that it's darn close to genocide. And then there's Koopas, Piranha Plants, Bob-ombs, Shy-guys, Lakitus, Boos, Dry Bones, Bloopers, and so many others, not to mention all the boss fights that always end in death, except for Bowser and his kids. And what for? Money and women are the most common reasons for murder in the real world, and apparently in the video-game world also: after all, isn't Mario doing it for Princess Peach and a bunch of coins? This just goes to prove we live in a violent world: the one video-game character with the most blood on his hands is also the most popular of them all, plus he can ground pound at an estimate of 80mph in his games, this ground pound can also smash through a limitless amount of blocks that are either 2/3rd's his height or 1 1/3rd's his height, he can also slice his enemies in half with the sheer blunt force of his boomerangs or tanooki tail, so yeah, Mario isn't exactly a weakling either, Mario's body fat appears to balance out his whole body even though we humans know that a chubby plumber would NEVER be able to do the things that Mario does, indicating that all this chubby fat of his that balances his whole body out is ACTUALLY LARGE AMOUNTS OF MUSCLE that balance his body out! he also has a near unlimited amount of lives as well due to all his adventuring. so yeah, the stuff Mario does proves that basically Mario is better than sonic, feat wise."

"Mario is able to run significantly fast without tiring and jump five times his own height. He is extremely strong with the ability to repeatedly deliver forceful punches, crush enemies with his feet, and destroy bricks with his bare hands. He is also a expert in tennis, golf, kart racing, soccer, baseball, skiing, construction working, demoliton, pyrotechnics, plumbing, handywork, tightrope walking, animal training, hockey, medicine, painting, composing, oil spill cleanup, streetfighting, basketball, surfing, treasure hunting and spacetravel. In can sometimes fly, shoot hammers with deadly accuracy, shoot fireball out of his hands, survive a fall from on top of a castle, and swim like an olympic athelete while seldom (or never) taking a breath. On top of that, he spends most of his time rescuing people in need, (namely, a princess) from a dinosaur that also breathes fire, who lives in a heavily-guarded castle while everthing in sight tries to attack him. He is smart, fast, strong, skilled, and absolutely fearless."

Mario is a fat plumber who should absolutely no place in the gaming world. Huh. It's weird because in the current standings, Mario has his foot on Sonic's writhing head. The true champion of games almost every single one of his adventures are an amazing playthrough. The same cannot be said for Sonic. Sonic uses cheap gimmicks and executes them poorly.

Don't be retarded. Mario wins.

That's just when they're underwater. The rest of the time, it's an easy win for the blue blur. Besides, even if they are underwater, Sonic will most likely be able to quickly escape it and force Mario to fight on a turf where Sonic has the advantage.

Mario could probably bait Sonic coming in full speed towards him, while Mario is near the lake or ocean, and he would side aside, jump over, or use the Vanish Cap and sonic would go right through him. Sonic probably wouldn't be able to suddenly come to a quick stop, and would fall into the water. Mario would then put on the Frog Suit, enabling him to breath underwater, swim faster with great control, and even utilize the currents. Every time Sonic tries to escape, Mario comes flying in, ramming him over, and continuously does this till he had drown, and if that method doesn't work, I can imagine Mario using the Ice Flower to freeze the entire ocean or lake, which lets him cross the surface of water by creating hexagonal platforms of ice. The last thing I can think of is using the Penguin Suit. He can swim underwater easier than before, but is unable to breath underwater. He would constantly slide above the surface of the water without sinking and wait for Sonic to jump out, quickly firing off a ice ball, which will freeze Sonic, and then Mario could slide towards the frozen sonic, and break the frozen structure into dozens of pieces. The idea here is to end the fight before sonic goes back up and escapes, forcing Mario to fight where Sonic has the advantage.

Actually, if you took away sonic speed, Sonic would still have the power of the Chaos Emeralds. If he didn't have that, he would use his shields. If he didn't have that, he had a TON of friends to help him out. If he didn't have them, he has his spines. If he didn't have those, he wouldn't be Sonic, the fastest thing alive.

why Mario is better than sonic:

1. without Mario their would be no more game industry.

2. sonic is essentially a very loose copy of Mario with smoother landscapes, blocks that sit on the ground, supped up jump attack and faster gameplay with a somewhat larger variety of enemies (platforming games only).

3. sonic has barely gotten any 10/10's for his games, many of Mario's classic games and recent very good ones have gotten MANY 10/10's both by official critics and by individuals.

4. if sonic is more recognizable than mickey mouse and Mario is more recognizable than sonic. then Mario is the more popular character.

5. many of sonic's games have sucked hard in the past and have cost Sega a ton of fans to boot. not to mention, the hate that sonic gets is usually more justifiable than the hate that Mario gets.

6. just by looks, anybody who chooses who would be a better hero would most likely choose Mario because sonic is BASICALLY a mutant of sorts. and we all know that weird, strange, alien creatures wouldn't exactly be easy to trust.

7. sonic has been in bad situations and that usually exchanges love for hate. meanwhile, Mario is making games that are wowing the community.

8. Mario's side characters usually get their own spotlight in their own series or games that feature them. tails is the only sonic character that has such a privilege other than shadow. but then again, most people consider that game to be horrible along with some of tails games. meanwhile, Mario's side characters are getting their own games that receive much better reception. some people prefer Wario over Mario on various forums.

9. Mario's villains have aged better than sonic's. bowser will usually get tons of love and praise from the community, and other villains have also managed to avoid a ton of hate. meanwhile, eggman becomes stand up comedy and nothing short of a joke to the community. mainly due to his name, stupidity and failures. even though he has an iq of 300 he still fails. meanwhile a monster with much less brain power has come closer to winning, and his failures make more sense then a technological superpower getting defeated by a speedy mutant and other mutated friends as well.

10. Mario's games have been much more appealing to the community and overall, Mario's games are more popular than sonic games, sonic colors was called a galaxy clone and so was sonic gala- i mean sonic lost world (don't take the joke seriously). and sonic has sometimes been considered a copy of Mario games by other people other than me. overall, Mario has aged more well than sonic and is basically his master considering the that without Mario there would be no sonic. plus, Mario has revolutionized and evolved video games multiple times, while sonic is struggling heavily and has ended up in the dumps several times. Mario is in first place and sonic usually ends up in second place or hate land.

conclusion: overall, not only has Mario done spectacular things but he has also aged better than most other franchises and has also still been around for 30+ years and counting while still remaining king. sonic has managed to compete with Mario and send him running some times, but in the end. Mario won and sonic became a close second and sometimes a laughing stock until cod took that place in the gaming community. sonic is good and he has many advantages over Mario. but so far, Mario has more and better advantages over sonic. and even though he has had some bad games, seriously, who remembers mario is missing, mario's time machine and hotel mario? exactly!

The thing about mario is that he kind of singlehandedly saved the budding videogame industry.
