Nintober 007. Marx

EDIT: From Nintobervilltch 2008, the progenitor for my annual Nintober project. Back then I only sketched 11 Nintendo villains rather than 31 monsters. It's 2012 and I'm redoing the old artwork and dragging them into the new template to make it one continuous project, if you like!

007. Marx from Kirby Super Star

Apparently, in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Marx was gonna be even more creepier and more disturbing. But Sakurai thought this would bump up the age rating so he toned down Marx to fit the E10+.

he's also one of the final bosses in Super smash bros ultimate.

Indeed, and they somehow manage to make him more unnerving as his Soul form.

Especially with his ability to cut himself in half to create black holes, and turn his eyes into lasers and black balls. he can also turn his wings into pink roots as well, and fire a powerful laser from his mouth.

Star Allies confirmed Marx survived his crash into Galactic Nova, so only Nova was destroyed(and no, Marx Soul is non-canon)

Ah, this boss... When I had Kirby Super Star,  I did not doubt me a second horror was going to inspire me this character...
So cute at the beginning... but horrible in the end. Completly twisted, psychopath... and cute X) But his Soul version... OMG Waaaah!  it's nightmarish... This is pure madness and murderous state... That's what makes it REALLY scary : in addition to being a great power psychopath thousand he comes back from the dead for YOU kil... Everything about him is frightening and the worst is that scream... I bet a lot like me screamed and nearly a heart attack
But it is also for these reasons, he is my favorite Kirby's boss ^^ And good job for you drawing :)

I like the interesting take you do with Marx and show his more demented side while also making him... less terrifying? At least compared to…

I always think that Marx was based off of Flandre Scarlet from Touhou 6: Embodiment of Scarlet Devil I wish Nintendo would do a crossover between Touhou and Nintendo characters in Super Smash Brothers that would be the most coolest thing ever,  but the Touhou characters would over power the Nintendo characters easily =_=   anyway I absolutely love your work and It would be awesome if you do some Touhou stuff :D

When it comes to inspiration, if one game really did inspire the other, then Marx probably would have inspired Flandre.  While both games are old, Kirby Super Star was released in 1996, in contrast to EoSD which was released in 2002.
Don't get me wrong though, I think Flandre is awesome.

Thank you. I'm not sure about taking on Toho... I've got quite a lot on my plate with just Nintendo to worry about :)

Nintober is over now for another year. Marx Soul is a popular choice though.
