Can I also add Bowser to the list? Because for a card-carrying villain, he does a lot to keep his universe safe. Plus, after Odyssey, I get the feeling Peach and Mario view him more as an annoying little brother than a real threat.
Bowser could not be an anti-hero as he was never a protagonist in any game he appeared in. Either he is the villain or in some games a supporting character. An anti-hero has to be the main character in the game which Mario is in Super Mario Odyssey.
Oddly, out of all the major Mario universe characters, only Bowser, Daisy, and Waluigi have games in which they are the main character.
An anti-hero in the Mario universe would be Wario, as eventhough he was the villain in his first appearance in the Gameboy game Super Mario Land 2: The Seven Golden Coins. Most of his non-spin off apperances depicts him as the anti-hero as his main goal in the game is not noble but to amass wealth only for himself. However, in these games his egocentric intentions turns out to indirectly help people and save the world from evil.
Is talking about a fandom group's behavior considered Fanboy Wars? If so, why is this thread not locked?
Talk about the systems an the games, not talk about why PC gamers refuses to admit to something.
Is this supposed to be a stupid question? Companies can call their products whatever they want and they do not have to be literal. It is like asking why Nintendo/Intelligent Systems called its tactical RPG Fire Emblem series even though the last several games has nothing to do with an item called the Fire Emblem. The same goes with other RPG franchises like Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest.
I really enjoy FE but I dislike the crit system. Especially when it costs me a teammember. Maybe I should play it on non-perma-death mode or something, might save me a lot of frustration.
We have yet to know whether Three Houses will have non-perma-death mode as found in previous titles.
And speaking of endings, would a character's death be one of several endings?
Shigeru Miyamoto the "head honcho" of Nintendo? This is something I never heard of before.
It is just hard to believe that it has been a decade since this failure.
