After looking at this website, I figured I should start a thread doing the same thing. The only rule is, don't make the whole description one big meme.

Anyways, I'm gonna start with the original 12!
Mario.png Mario
Donkey Kong (1981)

(Artwork: Mario Party 10)

For many a countless decade since his debut in 1981, Mario has made his name known to gamers everywhere and even beyond! From his video game roots to cartoons and movies to even food products, to say Mario's everywhere is the understatement of the century, and Smash is no different. Why do you think he's known worldwide as Mr. Video Game?
Builder Mario.png Builder Mario
Super Mario Maker (2015)

In Super Mario Maker, people can create their own Super Mario levels in four different styles: Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, and New Super Mario Bros. U. Mario proudly wears this in related promotional material (and many other occasions, including Smash), but he couldn't wear it in-game until he obtained a Mystery Mushroom.
Wedding Mario.png Mario (Wedding)
Super Mario Odyssey (2017)

In Super Mario Odyssey, Bowser wrangles up everything he needs to marry Princess Peach, and Mario sets off on a globe-trotting journey to object to it with the help of a Bonneter named Cappy (who also appears in Mario's Super Jump Punch and taunts). But even with that in mind, you can't go to a wedding without something snazzy to wear! That's why he gets this when he reaches the Moon Kingdom.
Donkey Kong.png Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong (1981)

(Artwork: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze)

When this oversized ape isn't busy eating bananas, he's murking every rotten animal who dares steal his horde or disturb his peaceful life. With the help of his fellow Kongs and animal friends, Donkey Kong can, will and has overcome many perilous fights against the Kremlings and other fearsome foes.
Link.png Link
The Legend of Zelda (1986)

(Artwork: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild)

The name "Link" is one of great renown in Hyrule's history and many different tales, but their goals are always the same: to seal the darkness of the evil Ganon using the Master Sword. This incarnation is a Champion of Hyrule, but despite his best efforts, he lost against the Calamity Ganon and had to be put to a century-long sleep to restore his strength at the cost of his memory.
Samus Aran.png Samus Aran
Metroid (1986)

(Artwork: Metroid: Samus Returns)

Before you ask, no, her name isn't Metroid. Samus is a bounty hunter who travels to different planets to keep the evil Space Pirates from succeeding in their goals. Her famous Morph Ball ability has been the subject of intrigue to the Pirates, but their attempts at reverse-engineering the technology to copy it all ended in spine-mangling disaster, so they wisely dropped it.
Yoshi.png Yoshi
Super Mario World (1990)

(Artwork: Mario Party 10)

They say man's best friend is a dog, but Mario and his faithful dinosaur companion say otherwise. Yoshi aids Mario in his adventures more times than either of them can count! In Yoshi's Island, Yoshi can eat enemies and lay eggs with them trapped inside. He can also use those eggs as throwing weapons, and even hide in one of his own as a shield.
Crafted Yoshi.png Yoshi
Yoshi's Crafted World (2019)

Spring, Yoshi! Fling, Yoshi! Tie the boss in string, Yoshi! ...Oh, wait, wrong game?

Yeah, here's the thing: Crafted World is similar to Woolly World in terms of aesthetics, but Crafted World goes more for things crafted in kindergarten. That said, I wouldn't blame you if you got this confused for Woolly World at all.
Kirby.png Kirby
Kirby's Dream Land (1992)

(Artwork: Kirby Super Star Ultra)

Don't be fooled by this pink puffball's cute looks (although I wouldn't blame you if you were at least blushing from the cuteness). Kirby can inhale just about anything with that void of a mouth, and he can copy the abilities of most enemies or spit them back out. Thanks to his light weight, he can even inhale the air to fly around!
Fox McCloud.png Fox McCloud
Star Fox (1993)

(Artwork: Star Fox Zero)

As leader of the mercenary team Star Fox in place of his late father James, Fox has a strong sense of justice. Often enlisted to stop Andross from taking over the Lylat System (sometimes a bit too often), Fox proudly leads his team to victory in many battles, one barrel roll at a time.
Pikachu.png Pikachu
Pokémon Red and Green Versions (1996)

(Artwork: Pokémon Global Link)

Pikachu, the Mouse Pokémon. Adored by many the world over, Pikachu is no doubt the poster child of Pokémon. It would appear rarely in Viridian Forest in its first appearance, and you'd be lucky to come across one. It stores electricity in those little red cheeks, and it evolves into Raichu with the use of a Thunder Stone. But the latter depends if you want to add another entry to the Pokédex, or if you want to keep the Mouse Pokémon just the way it is.
Luigi.png Luigi
Mario Bros. (1983)

(Artwork: Mario Party 8)

Despite the fact that he can jump higher than his brother, poor Luigi's been getting the short end of the stick since his debut as Player 2. It wasn't until Luigi's Mansion came about that Luigi got to be called something other than "green Mario"; he even had a whole year dedicated to him! He's a bit cowardly, but he puts up with enough to help out Mario in times of need.
Ness.png Ness
EarthBound / MOTHER 2 (1994)

He looks like any other young boy, right? WRONG! Ness is a highly-intelligent youth who has PSI abilities out the wazoo. He was instructed by a messenger from the future to collect the Eight Melodies to stop the evil Giygas, who has distorted his world beyond recognition (okay, bit of a stretch, but it's still pretty bad).
Captain Falcon.png Captain Falcon
F-ZERO (1990)

(Artwork: F-ZERO GX)

Captain Falcon is a flamboyant F-ZERO pilot who also works as a skilled bounty hunter. His Blue Falcon machine is famous, as he's won many F-ZERO races in it and even saved the world from the evil Black Shadow and Deathborn. You could only see that machine in the original game, but Captain Falcon himself appears in the instruction manual.
Jigglypuff.png Jigglpuff
Pokémon Red and Green Versions (1996)

(Artwork: Pokémon Global Link)

Jigglypuff, the Balloon Pokémon. This bug-eyed balloon is infamous for its use of Sing, which puts everything around it to sleep; naturally, it doesn't take kindly to people falling asleep during its (attempt at a) song. In Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, it gained the Fairy type. How it did so has yet to be disovered and proven by researchers.

I think there already exists a website somewhere that has given a description to every Spirit in the game. =^) (Not that this means that you can't give descriptions to Spirits via this thread though.)

Super Mario Bros. (1985)

(Artwork: New Super Mario Bros. Wii)

Orignally known as Princess Toadstool back in the day, Peach has had her fair share of run-ins with Bowser. Sometimes she'll muster up the energy to fight back (she even had to save Mario once), but most of the time Bowser manages to snatch her up without fail. That apparently doesn't stop her from inviting the Koopa King to go-karting and tennis, though...
View attachment 318208Bowser
Super Mario Bros. (1985)

(Artwork: New Super Mario Bros. Wii)

Hide your princesses, you mere kingdoms. King Bowser of the Koopa Clan will have them in his hands in no time! He is the eternal rival of Mario, and aims to be better than him in just about everything you can imagine; sports, kart racing, party games, etc. Despite this, he and Mario have teamed up on occasion as well...but nobody said they had to like it!
View attachment 318212Popo & Nana
Ice Climber (1985)

No matter how tall the mountain or how cumbersome the teamwork may be in some situations, the Ice Climbers are inseperable! They fight side by side in Smash, but due to certain..."limitations" if you will, they unfortunately couldn't rejoin the battle in the previous Smash games, Super Smash Bros. for 3DS / Wii U.
View attachment 318219Sheik
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998)

This masked man (or woman...? I can't tell, to be honest) met Link as soon as his spirit was unsealed from the Chamber of Time for 7 years. He claims to be last of the elusive Sheikah, a tribe indebted to the Hylian royal family. He aides Link in his quest by teaching him various warp songs he plays on his harp.
View attachment 318221Zelda
The Legend of Zelda (1986)

(Artwork: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds)

Just like Link, Zelda appears throughout the Smash series in name only, sharing many different incarnations as a descendant of the goddess Hylia. This incarnation is from A Link Between Worlds, and...um...would it be rude to your face turning red in front of her?
View attachment 318209Dr. Mario
Dr. Mario (1990)

(Artwork: Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure)

Remember when I said earlier that Mario's just about everywhere? Believe it or not, that also applies to the medical fields! Dr. Mario is a puzzle game where you eliminate Viruses by lining up them up with a Megavitamin of the same color. The higher the difficulty level, the more Viruses that are on screen. Mario can even make medicine sound fun, but that doesn't make his job any easier.
View attachment 318217Pichu
Pokémon Gold and Silver Versions (1999)

(Artwork: Pokémon Global Link)

Pichu, the Tiny Mouse Pokémon. Pichu evolves into Pikachu when it attains a high enough friendship with its Trainer. And how could you blame them? It's ten times cuter because of its pink cheeks alone! However, there's one vital detail Trainers should remember when raising a Pichu; it's not an Electric-type expert yet, so its electricity discharges and ends up hurting itself!
View attachment 318210Falco Lombardi
Star Fox (1993)

(Artwork: Star Fox Zero)

Formerly a gang member, Falco is the brash ace pilot of Star Fox. Falco is often uncooperative, frequently chastising his crewmates and harping Fox the most, due to his general disdain for authority and his secret want to be the leader himself. However, he does have a strong sense of loyalty and will always be there to help his friends...albeit at the last minute so he can take all the credit. Talk about an ego.
View attachment 318213Marth
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light (1990)

(Artwork: Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem)

Marth is the kind-hearted prince of Altea, who's...honestly had a pretty rough life. His kingdom was usurped when the dragon king Medeus invaded Archanea, and an old friend who joined the fight prior went mad and betrayed him. Despite these hardships, Marth led his soldiers well and prevailed over the forces of Dohlr both times, and went down in history and legend as the Hero-King.

His original appearance, Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, didn't see a release in North America until it was remade for the DS in 2009, simply titled Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. The following remake, New Mystery of the Emblem, was the first Fire Emblem game to be Japan-only in nearly a decade.
View attachment 318220Young Link
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998)

Once upon a time, there was a young boy named Link who lived in Kokiri Forest. He lived a peaceful life until the Great Deku Tree summoned him and learned his destiny: to stop the evil Ganondorf from recieving the Triforce. After a journey spanning across 7 years, he reaches the Great King of Evil and every action and inaction that happened during the fight caused some complicated timeline nonsense responsible for every other Legend of Zelda game. The end.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998)

(Artwork: Ocarina of Time 3D)

It is said that once every one hundred years, a male Gerudo is born to be king of the entire tribe. Ganondorf is that king, but he seeks to expand his rule more than anything. He feigns his loyalty to the king of Hyrule so he can take it for himself, and he takes that opportunity during Link's 7-year absence. Looks like having a king with "Ganon" in his name is never a good sign, Gerudo or otherwise.
View attachment 318214Mewtwo
Pokémon Red and Green Versions (1999)

(Artwork: Pokémon Global Link)

Mewtwo, the Genetic Pokémon. Mewtwo was created with Mew's DNA to be the ultimate Pokémon. Unfortunately, its creators forgot one thing: to keep it from going on the ultimate rampage. Mewtwo only uses its psychic powers to destroy its enemies, and is said to have the most savage heart among Pokémon. Trainers could find it and catch it in Cerulean Cave after beating the Pokémon League (and hopefully make it less of a jerk).
View attachment 318218Roy
Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade (2002)

During the time in which his father fell ill, Roy assumed leadership of Pharae's armies in his stead when Bern invade the continent of Elibe. After a chance meeting with the Princess Guinevere, his destiny became inextricably linked with the fate of the entire continent as well as his signature weapon, the Sword of Seals.
View attachment 318215Mr. Game & Watch
Ball (1980)

(Artwork: Manhole)

Mr. Game & Watch wasn't originally a thing when the first Game & Watch games came out. Game & Watch was a series of games in which characters, due to the LCD display, could only move in alternating, preset frames on a preset background, similar to the numbers on a calculator. Mr. Game & Watch is basically one big mish-mash of several Game & Watch games.
