PostSubject: About The Origins Of the Series Icons   Sun Jan 03, 2016 11:39 pm

Well, I was wondering now this:

Which was the origin of the Series Icons of the characters from SSBC?

Here are the origins of their icons:

-Super Mario: A mushroom, which's the most recurring power-up in Super Mario games
-Wario Land/WarioWare Inc.: W letter, which appears in Wario's cap
-Donkey Kong Country: DK letters, which appear in Donkey Kong's red big tie, and on his barrels
-Yoshi's Island: A Yoshi's egg, which are Yoshi's weapons, and from these birth Yoshis
-Legend Of Zelda: The TriForce, which's the main center of the series
-Tingle: A Rupee, which's the money type used in the series, and the main interest of Tingle
-Metroid: A Screw Attack-like object, which also appears in Metroid Prime games logo
-Pikmin: A Pikmin's flower (known as "Bacopa Cabana"), fully grown Pikmin have flowers on their stems; the flower also appears on the Onions, acting as their main propeller
-Kirby Super Star: A Warp Star, which's Kirby's main transportation device
-Star Fox: A winged fox, which decorates each of Team Star Fox's various vehicles
-Pokémon: A Poké Ball, which's used for catching a Pokémon
-Fire Emblem: Marth's Falchion. The sword represents the nature of sword fighting from Fire Emblem games
-F-ZERO: A falcon crest from Captain Falcon's helmet
-EarthBound: The Planet Earth, which appears in MOTHER logo
-Punch-Out!: A boxing glove, which represents the nature of the games
-Ice Climber: An eggplant, which's the first collectible vegetable in Ice Climber
-Mach Rider: A pair of wings from Mach Rider logo
-Game & Watch: A Game & Watch character wearing a helmet and ringing a bell, it represents the alarm feature of the Game & Watch units; this symbol in particular is seemingly based on the alarm from the Game & Watch, Helmet
-R.O.B.: A gyromite, which also includes inside itself the SubSpace Emissary logo
-Sin & Punishment: The kanjis of Tsumi (Sin) and Batsu (Punishment). These letters appear in the japanese logo of the Sin & Punishment games
-Solid Snake: FOXHOUND Unit's insignia; it originates from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
-Sonic The Hedgehog: Sonic's head
-Mega Man: Mega Man's head
-Duck Hunt: A duck, which's the main objective in Duck Hunt games
-Pac-Man: Original Pac-Man's sprite in the original Pac-Man game
-Street Fighter: SF letters from Street Fighter logo
-Rayman: Rayman's head
-Bomberman: A bomb
-Ristar: Ristar's head and one of his hands
-Crash Bandicoot: A fruit from Crash Bandicoot games
-Ace Attorney: A gavel hitting a wooden base; gavels are the most common object used by judges. This icon represents also the nature of Ace Attorney games. The base also features a flash, which maybe represent's Phoenix Wright's most iconic gesture (Objection!).
-Klonoa: A windwhirl, which appears in Klonoa games logo
-Dragon Ball Z: A Four-Stars Dragon Ball, which's commonly associatd with Goku, due to it was a present by Grandpa Gohan
-ExciteBike: A racing flag, which's waved when somebody gets on finish line at a race
-Q-Bert: Q-Bert itself
-Tetris: A tetromine with T shape

About the Newcomers which'll be added, here are my predictions and/or suggestions about their Icons:
-Shantae: A lamp, which also represent's Shantae's nature, and it's also her main weapon
-Dr. Mario: A pill, which's the main object Dr. Mario throws to the Viruses in order to defeat them. This could also represent Dr. Mario's nature itself.





Am I right about the origins of the icons of the characters? Comment, please.

If you have also some ideas for the Icons of some characters, comment too, please.
