Captain N the Game Master is a 80s cartoon based on NES property. The overall plot is a boy named Kevin and his dog named Duke. Both of them are transported into a world called Videoland. Videoland is being taken over by Mother Brain (Metriod). Lana the king’s daughter uses the power glove to summon Kevin. She is not alone, there is Simon Belmont from Castlevania. Mega Man and Pit from Kid Icarus. While in Videoland (a world named after video games), Kevin is armed with a NES controller and Zapper. NES controller is on his waist and have abilities. NES controller can pause, fast forward and jump. Zapper can pixelize enemies and have limited ammo. Kevin and the gang are called N Team. Together Kevin and the N Team warp through wolds. Stopping Mother Brain from talking over Videoland.
I realize this is based on 80s NES era. Simon Belmont and Mega Man are not from Nintendo. Captain N show does have some Nintendo characters like Link. Note: There is no Mario or Samus Aran in this show. Other character like Dr. Wily, Ganon and other villains appeared in this show. Lets break down the main cast. Kevin is from the real world along with Duke. He is the typical hero from another world. Duke is Kevin friend and trusted sidekick on the show. Lana is the princess and not damsel in distress. Simon Belmont is a airheaded buffoon that loves himself and trying to date Lana. Mega Man always say Mega during his dialogue. Pit is very small and like arcus after end of this sentence. I don’t like Simon Belmont and other character portrayals.
