Not too long ago we posted the History of Mario Power-Ups and now comes the character evolution of Mario, Link and Donkey Kong. While obviously not a complete history, it's fun to look at and reminisce about anyways. Ah, it seems like only yesterday I was throwing my controller at the freaking television and crying to my mom because I couldn't beat the last dungeon in Adventures of Link. Wait, that was yesterday. I swear they made that game too hard.
