Nintendo Hero made real - 12 years later
In 1995 Nintendo of America officially discontinued the Nintendo Entertainment System and purged their stock of the console. In an oversight that would forever change the world, a new werehouse manager at the Japanese distributer acidentally cleared a batch of "prototype" consoles for shipment in the last wave. Never meant to reach the hands of the consumer, these consoles had the strange ability to bring playable characters from the games to life. By the time Nintendo was able to track down and incinerate all 800 of the anomalous consoles it was too late. An estimated 23,000 NES playable characters had materialized into our world. Due to the quantity of systems and popularity of certain games, many of these are duplicates of the same character.
12 years have passed since the incident and the government has made all possible effort to integrate these characters into our society. While many have made the best use of their powers in our world, some still struggle to adapt.
Your task is to redesign a playable NES character showing how they have adapted or are stuggling to adapt to the limitations of our reality. What are the possibilities of having several duplicates of one character? There are no video game villans to do battle with, but there are still many uses for heroes of extrordinary ability in our world. But remember not all playable characters are necessarily concidered heroic. for every Samus or Link, there is also a Qbert and Chef from Burger Time... or the marble from Marble Madness!
It can be any playable character, but it MUST be from the original Nintendo Entertainment System.
1 = Playable NES character

Boy that's kinda tough. Feel free to modify the list, I have a hard time dishing out rejection. Maybe I need to toughen up a bit.
For the next topic I'm going to go with Nanotech Gardener as suggested by cognition.sb
Oblio goes on:

I had to take some others down:
Einen - Not a real entry.
Serpian - not finished.
also - keeped on the poll due to Marco's Request BUT not in the CHOW quality standards:
Hellzon - close to rejection - great linework - messy color job.
Gorgoth - needs more definition to the shapes - more color variation - especially in the sahadows. etc.
Ifman - cool ideea but - no form, bad values, bad color. Try a black and white entry - work out your shapes, and values. study!
