Puzzler: Find the Hidden Video-Game Characters

This post has been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff.

I've taken the names of popular video-game characters and embedded them in the sentences below. Each name will appear in consecutive letters, although those letters may span two or more words. The names also may ignore interceding punctuation.

For example, take this sentence: "Omar, ionizing radiation is probably the cause of your mutation."

The hidden character here is Mario: "Omar, ionizing radiation is probably the cause of your mutation."

Can you find the other hidden characters? If not, the answers appear on page two.
