In the Nintendo Wii U game Splatoon, Inklings are players who can transform between humanoid and squid forms.

In Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright is a rookie defense attorney in the Fey and Co. law offices. He’s successful in using his detective skills to exonerate his clients even though it seems like the odds and evidence are stacked against him. The best part of this costume is being able to point your finger yelling “Objection!” to everything.
In this Nintendo animated series, Kevin Keene is Captain N, a teenager who must defeat Mother Brain to save Videoland, armed with nothing more than an NES light zapper and controller belt buckle. Good luck with that, kid.

In the Nintendo series Punch-Out!!, Little Mac is a scrappy underdog boxer who’s trained with Doc Louis. He’s worked his way up from the bottom to face Mike Tyson, Mr. Dream, and even make an appearance in the next Super Smash Bros.
