First Appearance: Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! ( NES - 1987 )
Little Mac is a 17 year old young scrapper from The Bronx, New York. He searched for a boxing coach, and after facing 200 rejections, he was eventually taken in by former boxing Champion Doc Louis.
Weighing only 107 lbs, and 4’8” tall, he miraculously worked his way through the WVBA, taking down fighters that towered over him. Rumors are that he gained a lot of weight after he retired, but it was burned off before he returned for another go at the WVBA.
After winning the WVBA World Circut again, he put his title on the line saying he would retire if he lost three more times. After his final retirement, he earned a spot in the WVBA hall of fame. His former trainer, Doc, is a regular visitor to this exibit.
My brother loved the original game, but I thought it was just a stupid boxing game for some time. And then I unlocked it in Animal Crossing years later, gave it a chance, and it grew on me big time. It wasn’t just some boxing game. The fighting was more of a rhythmic puzzle than anything. And the fighters were charming characters that you’d love to hate, more so in the new incarnation of the series.
I didn’t draw the golden challenger from Super Punch-Out, because, despite what NOA might tell us, I won’t accept that he’s Little Mac. He’s too tall, looks too different, and no in game material gives him a name.
I really REALLY want him to be playable in a Super Smash Bros game at some point.
