I'll weigh in on this one...
Spyro - finally got around to buying the original three games!
Link - Wind Waker (GC) was my first console game
Conker - Conker's Bad Fur Day, who doesn't love an angry hungover squirrel?
Kirby - SO HUGGABLE.
Yoshi - particularly in giant yarn amiibo form
ALL OF THE POKEMANS. Well, almost. Nidoking is my favourite
