Like if DK isn't a Mario character by that logic, then neither is Waluigi and good luck convincing anyone of that.
I guess I was thinking of Mario platforms as being actual Mario games; while things like Mario Kart (and Mario Tennis, Party, etc) as games more like Smash which are non-Mario games that have Mario as a character (along with non-Mario characters such as DK).
But fair point, if Mario Kart is as much a Mario game as Super Mario Brothers; then DK must be included. In which case it seems like all DK characters would have to be included as well. But it gets weird.
