Book cover

How to Draw Nintendo Heroes and Villains was a book written by Michael Teitelbaum, illustrated by Ron Zalme, and published by Troll Communications L.L.C. in 2000. It provides tutorials on how to draw Nintendo's various characters, such as Mario, Donkey Kong, and Link. A lot of the images are rendered artworks of the various characters from their respective games.

This book was released after the 1997 How to Draw Donkey Kong & Friends, also written by Michael Teitelbaum. A spiritual successor was released in 2007, through Scholastic Corporation, titled How to Draw Nintendo Greatest Heroes & Villains.


The drawings go in order as they appear in the book:


  • Bowser is incorrectly named "Kerog" in this book due to an offical render of Bowser being called such.[1]
  • Tiny's and Chunky's artwork are the only two in the book that are based on their in-game models and not their rendered models.
  • Despite assisting the Kongs in Donkey Kong 64, Snide is labeled as a "villain."
