002 - Little Mac by pocket-arsenal 002 - Little Mac by pocket-arsenal
First Appearance: Mike Tysonís 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 4í8Ē 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 wasnít just some boxing game. The fighting was more of a rhythmic puzzle than anything. And the fighters were charming characters that youíd love to hate, more so in the new incarnation of the series.

I didnít draw the golden challenger from Super Punch-Out, because, despite what NOA might tell us, I wonít accept that heís Little Mac. Heís 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.

I noticed a mess-up in the description, it says Mac's height is 4'8" when it's actually 5'8".

I think they were tyrin' to imply that even though the Dinohatten residents evolved into humans, they still had their predatory instincts and ate smaller reptiles. It's also possible that they made Tweeters into lizards in order to say that the dinosaurs never evolved into birds and other reptiles, but it is possible (at least according to science) that the Tweeters resemble the direct ancestor of Protoavis, which is even older than Archaeopteryx. Maybe they were implying that Tweeters would eventually live up to their name and would eventually evolve into birds.

But that's just my one big convoluted theory. But seriously that place has the earliest script for the film (1991 Fantasy script) which I think might have inspired some of the more recent games (big example is Beedleman (who might have inspired Kamek and to a lesser extent Wizardheimer from the SMW Cartoon) disguising himself as Hildy and delivering the "Sorry Mario, but your Princess is in another Castle" speil, much like in NSMBWii where Kamek disguises himself as Peach).
