Funnily enough I didn’t do one for Smash.

Inspired by ThePickyGamer’s Nintendo console haikus, here are some limericks about Nintendo franchises.

Super Mario

This one is a classic, no doubt,

But when you ponder just what it’s about:

A maniac who

Jumps on turtles and shrooms,

That’s a thought thought that I could do without.

The Legend of Zelda

My favorite games of all time,

This series is simply sublime.

Although twasn’t bad,

I must say that I’m glad,

They stopped cloning Ocarina of Time.

Metroid

Sure, this franchise is good,

I just wish that Nintendo would,

Remember its fame

And Samus’ well-known name,

And treat this IP like they should.

Fire Emblem

It’s now a bit pervy for some,

But in spite of what it’s become,

The writing is clever,

It’s still hard as ever,

So frankly, the haters are dumb.

Kirby

These games are a walk in the park,

And though Kirby seems cute at the start,

Once you see that he eats

Everybody he meets,

You’ll go through a quick change of heart.

Star Fox

I guess that these games are ok,

But the best one’s from back in the day,

And when Slippy says “help,”

I think to myself,

“I just wish he’d get blown away.”

Splatoon

I don’t like most online shooters,

And when I do I play on a computer.

Though the concept is cool,

The art design rules,

And the idols could just not be cuter.

Pikmin

Man Nintendo likes games that are scary

But don’t look it, so be sure you’re wary.

The pikmin are cute,

And the monsters are too,

But the games are quite far from merry.

At least they weren’t puns.

Alright I think that’s enough. What, did you think I was going to do all of Nintendo’s franchises? That would require me to remember how many there are, something at which I am obviously bad.
