Can any Nintendo protagnist be considered Lawful Good?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Can any Nintendo protagnist be considered Lawful Good?

I can easily picture 70% of the Fire Emblem main characters as lawfully good

Just look at Marth, as far as i know, he follows the rule until the end, he is suppose to be a king after all, he is no super hero, but he is too much of a good guy. Ike on the other side is neutral good he is more of a typical hero

mmm.. Olimar might fit the description too



Nintendo is the best videogames company ever!

I'd say Mario is lawful good. Of course, we have no grasp on the laws of the mushroom kingdom. He seems almost obliviously good, like there's no real malice there, he's just doing things.

 

Kirby is the same way, i think. He can't do evil, but it's not like he's really striving for anything.



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

Lawful Good does not mean follows the law.

This is one of the dumbest misconceptions in the entire alignment rulesets.



Pheonix wright?



I hope not. Lawful Good characters are such a bore ...

*cough*D&D Nerd*cough* Though I think it scarier that I know that the alignment references you use i've been familiar with for about 20 years :

Anyways yes a majority of Nintendo iconic characters are either Neutral or Chaotic Good. Lawful by original D&D does indeed mean someone who follows the rules, though the origin of the rules can be flexible; spiritual, personal, religious and so on. Though over time the reference to lawful has been less strict.

PS. D&D alignment valuation suck. They are relatively archaic, strict and don't define enough of the myriad of possibilities. I know they have been shoe horning extra meaning, but it still aweful.



Squilliam: On Vgcharts its a commonly accepted practice to twist the bounds of plausibility in order to support your argument or agenda so I think its pretty cool that this gives me the precedent to say whatever I damn well please.

By the 3.5 incarnation, Lawful refers to someone who is methodical and organized.  You may as well replace the word "Lawful" with the word "Consistent."



Uh...Wario? I dunno.
