Nintendo is a Japanese electronics and gaming company, and the world's longest running and most successful one. It started off as a hit, ending the Video Game Crash of 1983. The first system was the Famicom, known as the Nintendo Entertainment System outside of Japan. After that, things took off, and the company never looked back. It has dozens of systems, scores of franchises, hundreds of titles, and innumerable characters under its belt. Nintendo has recently released its latest product, the Nintendo Switch.
Power of the Verse
Nintendo is a very strong verse in all categories, and with its long history, it is very believable. Even characters who are 10-C have access to star-busting, MFTL+ technology. A majority of everyday Pokemon sit in tier 9, as well as pre-reboot Little Mac, a good amount of Fire Emblem characters and Starfox characters without weaponry. There are a lot of characters who sit comfortably between tier 8 and tier 6, and each of them are forces to be reckoned with within their own tier. This is where Kid Icarus, Fire Emblem's high to god tiers, the more powerful Pokemon, Mother/Earthbound, the playable versions of Smash characters, and a few others fit.
Things really start to get interesting when you get into tier 5, in which characters like Ganondorf and Mewtwo reign, along with many other interesting characters. Its most popular characters coincidentally all peak at tier 4, with Mario, Link, Kirby, and Samus all being there, with the exception being Pikachu, who's at 8-A. It surprisingly has very few tier 3 characters, with just Ness, Magolor, an empowered Bowser, and King Boo via hax. However, the verse really gets strong with its tier 2s, which consists of Pokemon's creation gods plus a composite Darkrai and Cresselia, Mario's God Tiers, Shulk and Zanza from Xenoblade, Giygas from Earthbound, the Smash Hands and Tabuu, and TLoZ's Golden Goddesses. Not to mention the player, who is a majorly powerful character in the verse.
The verse has a ton of speed too. In the 3-D realm, for most of the verses, there's at least a few characters with triple digit mach speed, with many of them being far, far greater. Every legendary in Pokemon scales to Pikachu's Mach 695 feat at the very least. Most Gen 3 legendaries and endgame trainers are MHS+, while Mewtwo, Rayquaza, the mortality trio, and Deoxys go into sub-relativistic. Endgame Zelda characters are slightly above baseline FTL due to light statements in many of the games. Starfox and the aforementioned Pikmin have superluminal technology. Things take a huge turn for the better with Xenoblade characters being in the tens x FTL, Samus being in the millions x FTL, Mario Galaxy fighters in the trillions, and Kirby characters in the quadrillions. Kid Icarus characters are an unknown level of MFTL+ in flight speed, and Master and Crazy Hand are unknown amounts of MFTL+ in general. Ness is pseudo omnipresent in space alone. In 4-D, the creation trio + Arceus are omnipresent at their peaks, along with The Gentle Pull and Giygas.
The verse doesn't slack on hax either. Most Pokemon have some sort of status and statistics hax, mind and soul hax, absolute zero, power nullification, or BFR. Ninetales alone qualifies for the hax category. And that's not even counting the heavy hitters like Mewtwo and Celebi, let alone Pokemon like Palkia and Dialga. Kid Icarus characters have access to the Eggplant Curse, which turns the opponent into walking eggplants. Mario's power-ups give him hax like transmutation, powerful ice, invincibility, time manipulation, etc., and Bowser has powers of his own to match that, like petrification, sealing, etc.. Samus at the very least has corrupting, durability ignoring Phazon and subatomic destruction. Zelda has a bunch of different hax, with characters like Majora who casually reality warps, Midna's powerful twilight abilities, and of course, Ganon and Link, who both have a ton of soul, time, and reality related abilities. To bookend, Kirby has so many powers that he has the most categories on this site.
