Why Does Nintendo Keep "Killing" Mario in Super Smash Bros?

    I have a theory as to why all these characters try to kill Mario. All the fighters know that Mario is the face of Nintendo and that he gets all the spotlight, that's why they try to kill him. If Mario is dead then THEY might be the new face of Nintendo.
