My top 100 Nintendo characters video on YouTube

Yesterday, I posted a countdown slideshow on YouTube about my top 100 favorite Nintendo characters. That was a very interesting project. The numbers countdown from no. 100 to no. 1, from the oldest Nintendo character to an obscure Fire Emblem sword demon. What my no. 100 and no. 1 Nintendo characters have in common is that they were both from games produced by the late Gunpei Yokoi. My no. 100 Nintendo character is from the first Yokoi produced game, and my no. 1 Nintendo character is the last Yokoi produced game.

Counting down from 100 to 1

No. 100: Mr. Game & Watch: He is Nintendo's oldest character. He is a two-dimensional character. He was created by Gunpei Yokoi.

No. 99: Kirby: He is the name of the first franchise created by Masahiro Sakurai who would later become the creator of the Super Smash Bros. series. He is voiced by a female seiyuu named Makiko Ohmoto. He is one of Nintendo's well known characters.

No. 98: MetaKnight: He is my favorite Kirby character, also created by Masahiro Sakurai. He is enigmatic, follows a code of honor, and lends Kirby a sword before they fight to be fair. His sword can create tornadoes, fire waves, and electric force fields. He wears a navy blue cloak that he can use as a set of wings and wears a silver mask. Beneath his mask, he looks like Kirby. He first appeared in Kirby's Adventure. He has appeared in many games and shows since then.

No. 97: Super Macho Man: He is a stereotypical body builder. He appears in Punch-Out! and Super Punch-Out!. He is known for his spin punch. He taunts Little Mac by flexing his pectoral muscles and incorporates his exercise routines into his powerful attacks.

No. 96: Little Mac: The protagonist of the Punch-Out! series. He hails from Bronx, New York. He appears as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He is voiced by Hisao Egawa.

No. 95: Ice Cimbers: They consist of Popo and Nana. They are voiced by a female seiyuu named Sanae Kobayashi. They would later appear in Super Smash Bros. Melee and return for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In those games, the player only controls Popo while Nana mimics the moves.
