Higgin’s is funny because he’s suppose to be THIS GUY
This is Hudson’s TAKAHASHI MEIJIN.
He made THIS
This is to measure how fast you can mash? Why? Because Meijin was insane and was a master of the -16 shot- mashing technique!
This man had a training montage where he destroyed a watermelon.
He was considered a god gamer back in the day and I think his mash speed is still impressive even now.
SO YEAH. Strand him on a desert island with nothing but his hat and force him to put on some leaf skirt and you have MASTER HIGGINS. He worked as a mascot because he was a charicature of a real person. His design was simple and charming enough that it worked over here, but the real glory is knowing his full history.
