As Nintendo's video game designer and producer, Shigeru Miyamoto is associated with some of the most iconic video game characters. To pay homage to the contributions that Miyamoto has made to the world of gaming, artist Butcher Billy created a series of portraits depicting Miyamoto as many of the characters he has brought to life.

The series shows the iconic Japanese video game designer and producer as characters like Mario, Link and even arch-enemies like Wario and Bowser. Each wears a comical expression, which perfectly captures each character's spirit, like the mischievous nature of Boo and the perfectly sunny disposition of Princess Peach.

As widely-recognized as these characters are, this mashup is a fun way to help put a face to the man who created them. Stats for Gaming Developer Character Mashups Trending: Older & Mild
