Top Ten: NPCs of All Time

9: Bob-omb Buddy

One of the first faces you meet in Super Mario 64, the pink Bob-omb Buddy was a friend in disguise. After years of bob-omb tyrany on NES and SNES, your immediate instinct was to either jump on his head or run away in terror, but your Bob-omb Buddy was so cheerful and friendly (and colourful) that you couldn’t help but like him instantly. He was your guide into the fantastic world of 3D gaming, and every game since the debut of Nintendo 64 owes him a debt of thanks for his early advice.
