Nintendo Dream readers vote on their favorite characters once again, and you already know who takes the top spot

Kirby dominates

While Famitsu has its fans vote on what games they're most excited for, Nintendo Dream runs a poll to see who is the most beloved character on Nintendo platforms. Without fail, Kirby gets the most votes every single month. With the May 2019 issue now available, we see that Kirby has once again charmed his way to the top spot.

3. Pikachu (Pokémon) - 81
4. Mario (Super Mario)
6. Luigi (Super Mario)
7. Isabelle (Animal Crossing)
8. Meta Knight (Kirby)
9. Chrom (Fire Emblem)
10. Eevee (Pokémon)

I don't hate Kirby. But I also feel like he doesn't have a compelling design OR personality. It always surprises me how popular he is.

I agree but it seems most Nintendo fans want their characters to be blank slate Mary sues...Link, Kirby, Bowser, Mario, Yoshi all get praised to high heaven where as characters with actual character and personality like Pearl, Wario, Waluigi, Tingle, King K.Rool, Bowser Jr., and others are always very divisive within the fanbase. You either love them or hate them. I for one love every character Nintendo creates. Obviously I prefer certain ones than others but the amount of hate I see certain Nintendo characters get online always surprises me because I never understand why.

Link and Inkling are some of my favourites.

Wait, they run a "most beloved Nintendo character poll" every month? Do they really expect the results to change that much from month to month?

The poll is actually run by Kirby and this validation is his sustenance

How the hell is Super Mario in fourth place? I can't believe Nintendo Dream is messing up with Super Mario!
