If Super Mario can't be number one, then King Koopa should be number one!


Bowser Jr coming in at #4 on the list of "villains you can't hate".... we've come a long way since the Mario Sunshine days!

I never hated him in Sunshine. But then again, the real villain was that small wooden boat... I still have nightmares about it...

I guess that makes Ganondorf a great villain then! Smile

Same with King K.Rool. Even though I love him dearly shame Japan doesnt feel the same way...

But like you said being unlikable/despicable makes him a great villain.

I hadn't even considered him. Good call Smile
Though now I want the DKC trilogy on Switch even more XD

Seeing Jin on the list made me remember his backstory which in turn made me sad all over again.
