Bubble.  Air.  Quick.  Heat.  Wood.  Metal.  Flash.  Crash.
If you had an NES in the early 90s, this wasn’t just a list of physical traits and metaphysical abstractions.  This was a rogues gallery equal to Bowser, the Joker, and Mrs. Cragstone from 3rd period English.  This was Mega Man 2.
More than a bunch of levels to be dispatched in order, Mega Man’s robot nemeses were a puzzle.  An 8-bit rubik’s cube waiting for you every day after school.  Which level would you try first?  Bubble Man, to make Heat Man easier?  Or Flash Man to breeze through Quick Man’s stage?  We’d try for hours to crack the code, to get to Wily’s Castle, and to save Dr. Light and the world.
And then we’d stop because it was time for dinner and then we’d forget to write down the password so we had to do it all over again tomorrow.

"Do you know why I pulled you over sir?  You were going 45 in a 25.  License and registration, please.  Sir, this is a plumbing license, I’m going to need some form of government issued id. Are you in possession of any weapons or drugs?  Okay, this is a banana peel.  And a green turtle shell.  And a red turtle shell?  I didn’t even know there were red turtles.  And this mushroom is too comically large to be a drug.  I don’t understand why you’re giving me these things.  Care to explain why you were speeding in the first place?  You were "drag racing a dinosaur, a gorilla, and your kinda-sorta girlfriend?"  Sir I’m going to need you to step out of the go kart."

8- Bit Medicine: GMH Gives me health.

Original idea by @aaronkheifets ”We get so caught up with modern medicine, sometimes we forget traditional, holistic remedies, like a random mushroom or an entire pizza, can cure you of all wounds. Also, I don’t know why my doctor doesn’t have more fairies in bottles. They always hang out in the same place and all you need is a net.”

"The ladies of Nintendo games have always gotten the short end of the joystick, even though (as you can see from this Collegehumor video), they have thoughts and feelings too! So I thought it was high time they joined forces with another sassy group of gals, the Real Housewives. I can only imagine how many glasses of potion they’d throw in their frenemies’ faces when they show up to a party wearing the same armored suit.” The Real Housewives of Nintendo, original idea by CH’s Hallie Cantor
