List RulesVote up your favorite Super NES video game characters. Must be on SNES only.

When the original NES came out, video gaming was never the same. So in retrospect, it comes as a surprise that Nintendo's second system, the Super NES, likewise became a (pardon the pun) game-changer in the industry. With improved graphics and a larger stable of games, the system  became one of the greatest of all time. Our list here compiles a number of those characters and shows off some of the best in the history of gaming!

Whether looking at sequels to classics like Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, or brand new franchises that became some of the best in the world, like Chrono Trigger, the Super NES had a wealth of classic video game characters that we've grown to love. No matter if it's the hack and slash of Zelda, or the super-deep RPGs of the third American installment of Final Fantasy, you'll definitely find something to love in this list!

So take a look at our list of the best Super NES characters, vote and rerank as you see fit! Then check out our other console characters lists and see if what we picked stacks up to the list in your head! Let us know how we did.
