So I found this two-part YouTube video called "500 Characters I Want In Smash Bros. Switch"...

The first thing I thought was "Even with that many characters and the likelihood that most of them are going to be joke characters, I bet this list is STILL not going to even consider Mary O. even as a joke character..."

No one remembers me :(

Every time he put in a joke character (a non-game character, an Internet meme, some random fanart of a character who's already in SSB, an inanimate object, his dog, etc...), I was like "He included this but probably didn't include Mary O..."

Towards the end, I was like "29 characters to go and still no Mary O..."

At 491-500, the end of the "whatever video game characters he could think of" section:
INTROSPECKTIVE: The Sims. Diablo. A ******* Tetris block. Mary O., the--
ME: *pauses video to have a chance to process whether or not I heard that last part right, then fanboys because this guy ACTUALLY THOUGHT OF MARY O. EVENTUALLY... even if she's number 494 on the list, she's one of the few he felt the need to explain where she's from ("the guide from Mario Maker"), apparently a half-eaten grilled cheese sandwich and other joke characters are higher priority, and this is an entertainment video anyway and not a list of confirmed characters, AT LEAST HE REMEMBERED MARY O. EVENTUALLY*

I wanna know who did that fanart of her he used, too! I didn't think Mary O. could possibly get any cuter but I was wrong ♥

So, yeah. That's what it's like to be as obsessed as I am with such an obscure character. :)

I'm guessing probably none of you would know who Mary O. is if it weren't for my journal but have any of you ever been so obsessed with any obscure-ish fictional character (doesn't even have to be a crush) that you get THIS excited if anyone so much as knows who that character is? I don't want to feel like I'm the only one who's like this...

Oh, I completely understand! I'm obsessed with the actor that played Tywin Lannister on GOT, and freak whenever someone mentions him.

At least you haven't watched/read a long list of actors or some similar list solely to see if the actor who played Tywin Lannister is mentioned in it! (or have you?)

Also, if you like Game of Thrones, I bet you and my sister pathvain_aelien might get along well. :)

I have! I always look to see if Charles Dance is mentioned. He's my precious.

I added your sister, cause you suggested it. :)

Not obsessed but adore Kid Icarus and basically no one I've ever talked to has heard of him except because of MAYBE that Kid Icarus Uprising for DS but for me that's not HIM, not the him I remember! So yes when they know SNES Kid Icarus or I think there even was a game on some Gameboy Kid Icarus Of Myth and Monsters, I get excited. I especially like Kid Icarus when he's been turned into an eggplant!! I was once completely obsessed with Princess Tomato and the Salad Kingdom too no specific character except maybe Percy, that no one has ever seemingly heard of either.

YES!!! I have an online friend who's played Kid Icarus!!!

I played Kid Icarus on the NES (there was never a SNES Kid Icarus game - the one you're thinking of was on the NES) back in the day (well, not THE day because the game came out a few years before I was born, but still, I played it back when it was somewhat new) but wasn't very good at it for a while... that game is HARD! I don't think I ever even got far enough to know about Eggplant Wizards until years later when they were mentioned in some Nintendo Power issue in the era when I was subscribed to it (so 2002-2008 probably? Not sure why Eggplant Wizards would be mentioned in Nintendo Power in THAT era - maybe a list of most aggravating video game enemies or something?).

I also have Kid Icarus: Uprising and was obsessed with it for quite a while... there's lots of funny dialogue, and I like all the references to the original game and how most of the enemies from the original finally got to appear in 3D. :) And around the same time, I also got the 3D Classics version of the NES Kid Icarus, which, in addition to the 3D effect, also made a few changes so it's slightly easier; thanks to that, I finally beat the "original" Kid Icarus in 2014 or so. :)

That's another thing - for a couple of years after I got KI:U I had a tendency to reference both NES Kid Icarus and Kid Icarus: Uprising a lot on LJ (I STILL reference them on LJ sometimes!), and sometimes felt weird about that because I wasn't sure if any of my LJ friends would even know who Pit* is because of his Super Smash Bros. appearances, let alone any of the Kid Icarus games (even Uprising).

And yes, there is a Game Boy Kid Icarus game. I don't have it unfortunately... that's the only Kid Icarus game I haven't played yet. I need to someday. :)

*I hate to bring this up but yeah, his name is Pit despite the game being named Kid Icarus. It's weird, I know. But I'm still excited that you know who he is - a lot of people I know haven't heard of Pit or Kid Icarus at all. :)

I especially like Kid Icarus when he's been turned into an eggplant!!

I bet you'll like this comic:

Actually I know his name as when you're in some part of the game I think it even says something like "Sorry Pit" or whatever. It's just not something I keep in my memory. I've played it a lot, in the past and used to have all the passwords. Have it on Wii U even but don't really play it

I understand. :)

It's been a while since I've actually played it, too... I still haven't beaten all the treasure hunt challenges in Uprising yet, but I've cleared the story and a lot of the challenges. Maybe I'll go back and finish that someday. Same thing with NES Remix 2 where some of the challenges are from Kid Icarus but I haven't beaten all of them yet. :)

As for Princess Tomato and the Salad Kingdom... I haven't played that unfortunately. :( The name sounds kind of familiar like I might have heard of it at some point, but I'm not sure if I've heard of it.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...

For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
