Super Mario, Pac-Man, and Sonic The Hedgehog are three of the most recognizable icons in gaming, and their careers contain some interesting parallels.

They also happen to perfectly represent the three primary color, maybe because early limitations in color palettes forced designers to use simple and iconic color schemes. Maybe the most surprising thing about their appearance in Super Smash Bros. is that they didn’t all appear together somewhere sooner.
