Wario is my favourite Nintendo character. He’s fat, he’s muscular, greedy and isn’t afraid of being himself. Also, he’s a manly man that isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty if needed to (to get more gold, that is). I also love that his games feature him robbing/collecting every creature he runs across of money, if I recall correctly just to get a castle of his own (in Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins he’s stolen a castle in Mushroom Kingdom [forgive me if I’m wrong on this, I haven’t read up on this] which you, as Mario, kicks him out of).
