Mario Mario (yep, that’s his full name according to Nintendo) is a videogame character who casts a imposingly long shadow over the industry. With decades of banger games and now a hit movie under his belt, Mr. Videogame is a beloved icon of the entire medium thanks, in part, to his squeaky clean reputation. We mean, besides that 2 decades fans argued about whether or not he was calling someone gay.
The Alien from Alien Loves Pepsi
Here at Fact Fiend we’re huge fans of the Alien from Alien because he’s just a little guy trying his best. It’s also a creature that propagates via xeno-human turbo-rape and was designed by a penis-obsessed Swiss art weirdo. What we’re saying is that while the Alien is no doubt iconic and rad as shit, it’d be weird if they tried to sell it to kids, right? Like, really weird. You can probably see where we’re going with this.
Steve Jobs Drowned the First iPod in a Fishtank
If there’s one thing Apple are known for among consumers and not terminally online weirdoes who make owning a particular brand of phone their entire personality, it’s making some supremely fuckable looking electronics. With the company usually being willing to get its Job on sacrifice everything from battery life to critical device functionality for the sake of form factor. Something that saw Steve Jobs drowning the first iPod prototype like a mafia snitch.

It’s a long-running joke in the gaming-community that the Final Fantasy series is pretty poorly named given there are currently 15 numbered mainline titles with that name at the time of writing. A joke you’d think the owners of the franchise would be on or at least, not be huge weirdoes about. As it turns out, they are. The latter we mean.
The Man So Buff, His Juicers Exploded
Social media is positively lousy with wannabe fitness and health gurus or “gymfluencers” as they’re perhaps better known and pretty much all of their advice is bullshit because fitness is pretty much a solved issue at this point. Something that can be attributed to, in part, Jack LaLanne, a man so buff even products bearing his name could kick the fuck out of you.
