Courtesy of Giant BombLittle Mac, though 4-foot-8, packed a mean punch.
John Dowd: Replaced Barry Bonds in “MVP Baseball” due to licensing, and was every bit as lethal with the bat.

Little Mac: The “Mike Tyson's Punch Out!!” king packed a mean punch, especially for a 17-year-old kid who stands 4-foot-8.

Player 99: Who needed the real Michael Jordan when Player 99 took to the air for the “NBA Live” Bulls?

Fat Guy: The bad boy of NES “Ice Hockey,” a team of three fat guys on the ice could scuffle and slap shot their way to victory, even if they were slower than the Zamboni.

QB Eagles: The Eagles were banned from my house because of how unfair it was to play as this virtual replacement for Philadelphia quarterback Randall Cunningham in "Tecmo Super Bowl."
