SEGA accidentally shares the full Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games roster

Who makes the cut this time?

SEGA made a bit of a mistake in promoting Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games for TGS 2019. The TGS 2019 hub page for the game has a tiny image that shows a banner of character icons, which can be expanded to see the entire lineup. As it stands right now, here are the characters that will be playable.

Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Bowser, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Eggman, Wario, Waluigi, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Bowser Jr., Shadow, Silver, Metal Sonic, Blaze, Vektor, Jet, Zavok, Zazz, Eggman Nega, Espio, Rouge, Diddy Kong, Toadette, Larry Koopa, Ludwig von Koopa, Rosalina & Wendy Koopa.

Gotta be honest some of these character choices suck. Zavok is a terrible character (as are the rest of the Deadly Six) yet they keep throwing him in EVERYTHING. Im sick and tired of the Koopalings they have greatly overstayed their welcome IMO. Yeah it was cool to see them back in NSMBW cause they were gone for years but since their are 7 of them they drag down Mario spin-off rosters.

I wish Nintendo would use other Mario characters more that arent used as often. Why hasnt Professor E.Gadd ever been playable in a Mario spin-off? Why has Pauline only been playable in Tennis Aces and nothing else especially considering how huge Odyssey is? Why do we still only get DK and Diddy as the only 2 DKC characters in most Mario spin-offs? What happened to Petey Piranha, Toadsworth, and Birdo appearing on a consistent basis?

Personally I found it really interesting that they choose to bring in only three of the koopalings. I've always seen them as a packaged deal.

I seriously can't stand any of the characters from Sonic Lost World, their designs are just dreadful and I too am sick of seeing them get shoehorned in everywhere.

Lost World sucked Sega, accept it.

Petey and Birdo are my two favourite Mario characters and it saddens me to no end that they've wittled them out over the years. (Bless you Tennis Aces)

Also, not just saying it because of your avatar, but let's be real, K. Rool needs to be in more of the Mario Sports titles, he was a great fit for Sluggers and I'd pay good money to see my favourite guy reintroduced to the masses. (Moreso than Smash already did)

Please stop trying to make the Deadly Six a thing. Nobody likes them.

At the same time I can't really think of other sonic characters to replace them.

Really? Charmy Bee? Cream the Rabbit? Big the Cat? E-123 Omega? Infinite? The hard boiled heavies? Ray the flying Squirrel? Mighty the Armadillo? Wave? Storm?

Plenty of other Sonic characters than the mediocre Deadly Six..

It’s annoying that they consistently ignore Cream. She was really popular and used often in the GameCube era. She’s also well designed and makes sense in the Sonic universe, especially versus these Lost World rejects.

That's what really upsets me, the fact that they're using these characters nobody likes from a game nobody likes over Cream.

I think I'm really outdated with Sonic games, I only remember Cream and Big the Cat of those that you said. Cream is fine, but Big or a Deadly Six are both mediocre.

Cappy is the most significant Mario character in a long time and once again he isn’t playable. He’s definitly poised to become a spin off character but hasn’t become one yet

Jet Blaze and Toadette are cool but who the frick is Zazz and why is Zavok being shoved down our throats for the millionth time

I'm glad to see it's not just me who can't stand the Lost World villains.

Lost World was a terrible game and The Deadly Six are just one-note stereotypes. Also their designs are ugly they do not fit in with the rest of the Sonic lore IMO.

Zavok is the strong hot headed leader. Thats his whole character.

Zazz is crazy thats it.

The girl is a girl so her whole character is her appearence and make up and flirting. How original..

The fat one is fat. So all he cares about is eating 24/7 and being lazy.

The old one is the stereotypical wise master.

Their is another one but dont remember who he is because he sucked too.

These characters felt like they were created by 3rd graders. Yeah Punch-Out's cast are all stereotypes too but at least their designs are top notch and their stereotypes are over the top and funny/endearing. The Deadly Six are none of those things.

Yeah I agree, they're all one note, shallow tropes pretending to be characters with obnoxious, childish designs that belong in a terrible Saturday morning cartoon and not the Sonic franchise.

Also agreed on Punch-Out, that game knows how to have fun with stereotypes.

I get why we’re all complaining about characters who debuted in Sonic Lost World coming back. The game was a failure, yes, but it didn’t fail as bad as Sonic Boom (Rise of Lyric, Shattered Crystal, Fire & Ice, and the TV show they were all based on). That’s why Sticks (a character exclusive to that show) is nowhere to be found on the roster (unlike Rio 2016), so be relieved of that.

Let’s also remember that, if the rumor is true, the “new” characters may be playable in only one event much like in Rio 2016. I hope not, though.

No Dry Bones, no buy.
