Note: At present this article is far from a general representation of all of Nintendo.

A summary of Nintendo series mascots and main characters. Please note our coverage policy restricts articles on these. This list is not intended to include characters who serve as minor enemies (unless on a special case by case basis, like Goomba, Piranha Plant, Boo).

The list of names is in English, with the exception of characters with names that have not officially appeared in English. In this case, the native name is used. With languages such as Japanese, official romanizations or translations are used (from official media, merchanidse, other games like Super Smash Bros. series, internal file names) if they exist, otherwise they are represented in a standard romanization.
