Nintendo Villains by BrendanCorris Nintendo Villains by BrendanCorris
Boy, this picture took so much longer than it needed to. I originally wanted it up before the holidays but I just missed it. Well, long-time watchers should recognize the theme. Exactly two years ago I did the same theme, but I’ve grown disappointed in the quality of that piece and have been meaning to do a revamp. Soon I will put up each character individually up-close and fully detailed. As for the characters displayed here, they are the ones I either like the most or feel are the most important among the Nintendo villains roster. Do not tell me I “missed” or “forgot” someone. I know there are plenty of Nintendo villains not pictured here. That doesn’t mean I forgot them, I just simply didn’t want to draw them. Well, anyway, here are Nintendo’s most wanted. Most wanted for theft, kidnapping, murder, piracy and countless other forms of chaos. The characters pictured from left to right/top to bottom are:

Rislet from Metroid
Porky from Mother
Captain Syrup from Wario Land
Ganondorf from Zelda
Medusa from Kid Icarus
Wolf from Srafox
King Dedede from Kirby
Bowser from Super Mario
Wart from Doki-Doki Panic/Super Mario
King K. Rool from Donkey Kong Country
Mewtwo from Pokemon
Wario from Super Mario

So that’s everyone pictured here. I really hope you all enjoy this picture, as it took me way too long to complete. Wouldn't mind seeing any of these guys in the next Smash Bros., well, except Porky. He's a great character, but without his mech he's just a fat coward. Just cut the crap Nintendo and give us Kumatora. Download for the best view.

Allow me to start off saying that this piece is amazing on all levels and it makes me proud to be a Smash Brothers Player. Your style of utilizing dark colors and caricature-ish features allowed you to portray the villians in this picture in a more menacing way, which is hard to do with some of the more cartoony characters like Dedede. Doing your homework on the characters seemed to help with the designs while keeping the dark theme (like Mewtwo who I main in melee). Despite the things you explained in the description, it is very good. A favorite!

Now where should I start? I would say that this picture is just pure awesome! The characters looks evil, but much better then they originally are. I also like how you make the colors in the characters and background, it darkens as it goes to the back or the top of the picture. The purple smog on the bottom looks like it fits the picture well, but it'll look better is it reaches the foreground of the picture, in front of Mew-Two and Wario. It'll give it a little bit more of a frighting look to the picture. ;p

My favorite out of them has to be Bowser. He really looks like an evil turtle as he already is. His teeth looks like a real monster's teeth that's incredibly sharp, so sharp that it can rip through anything! The glowing red eyes truly gave him a monstrous look, making him even more frighting. I like how you make Bowser is reaching out to grab you and will not let go of you as he kidnaps you. What would be even better is a monster tong for him, it'll make the evil turtle scarier.

Overall the background darkens to a mix of dark purple and black, making it look like that more scary looking evil characters ready to come out to get you.

Fantastic work, and this is one of the best Nintendo fan art I ever soon! :D Congratulations of the DD!!:clap:

I'm never updating this picture since its over 4 years old, took forever to make, and has no more room for anyone else without destroying the structure/flow of the picture. If I were to ever make a whole new drawing of it, I'd likely have a few more villains, like DJ Octavio or just an Octoling or two, but I doubt that will ever happen, at least anytime soon. The only reason I'd remake it is if I felt I could make it look way better than this one, but I don't feel that will happen for many years.

mewtwo isn't a villain is the antagonist of the first movie and just have a different view of the world become a good guy at the end and since he always been in the hero side when he appear on the anime or special (except for mirage mewtwo who was just a digital weapon without consciousness) and in the game he's just a confuse wild animal

Ok... wich series need to be added... or at least for a second drawing... ?
- Golden Sun (Doom Dragon for the win!)
- Xenoblade Chronicles (I'm torn between Egil and Zanza)
- F-Zero (yes, you could add Black Shadow or Deathborne)
- Fire Emblem (you got a truckload to pick form)
- Punch-Out! (King Hippo, Sandman or Mr. Dream, your pick)

Nothing needs to be added because I was just drawing my personal favorites, and this picture is never going to be redone/edited. It's four years old, and it's my most popular pic online and at cons by far. I'm not exactly adding anybody anytime soon. I still seem to get comments like this all the time on this picture, and I gotta say, it's never happening. Also, I'm not going to add characters from games I don't play or care about. I don't care for Fire Emblem, and I have no interest in Golden Sun and Xenoblade (and despite Nintendo buying the studio behind Xenoblade, I still consider them third party. If Nintendo just bought Capcom I wouldn't put Dr. Wily in a pic like this either).

Hmmm, I'm sorry Grand-Dimentio, but you didn't spoil NEARLY enough crucial plot details. Why not tell BrendanCorris the plots of every game in the series? That should be satisfactory.

He does in my book. He debuted as a villain, was the villain in multiple titles, and even when he's not the villain, he does everything for selfish reasons and doesn't care who he screws over.

Though to me, it's personally insulting to read that stuff about Kirby and pokemon, this is a good pic. But wouldn't Zero/Zero 2 from Kirby's dreamland 3 and Kirby 64 be a better fit than dedede? He's a bloody angel eyeball. Literally on the bloody part, as out of every single game nintendo made, he's the only one to get away with profuse amounts of blood. Though I must commend you on this picture. But if it was expanded to more than just nintendo games, it would've been cool to add these two megaman.wikia.com/wiki/Cyber_B… because out of all the final bosses in the megaman battle network series, they're the more intimidating.

This picture was done years ago, and I've actually cooled down and learned to love Kirby and Pokemon since then. I honestly never had much against Kirby, I don't know why I blew up on it like that, I was just overly opinionated at that time, and a hater. Although Zero 2 is awesome, I still wouldn't put him in here because he's too juge and would take away from most of the picture. The same reason I left out Giygas, as his original form looks too similar to Mewtwo and his second form would take up too much of the picture and interfere with the purple color scheme. I admit Dedede isn't much of a villain, as he's been a hero more times than an antagonist by this point, but I was mostly trying to go with the most iconic/classic villains from each series. Dedede was the villain of the very first Kirby game, and he's appeared in every one since then, so I felt he deserved to represent the series here.

Never played MM Battle Network.

Yes. Giygas doesn't deserve a spot here because he's overused. Only his theme is unsettling.

BrendanCorris Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2014
I wouldn't say that. I like the character. Sure he has become a stereotypical favorite when it comes to villains these days, but I just think he wouldn't fit physically in this picture, and Porky is more the truly most evil villain in the series if you ask me. Giygas is more just a confused victim.
