Illustration for article titled Deceased Wrestler Loved Great Video Games

Earlier this week, tragedy struck when Japanese pro wrestler Mitsuharu Misawa was killed in a freak ring accident — suffering lethal spinal damage from a suplex.

Considered one of the greatest pro wrestlers ever, Misawa's popularity in Japan rivaled Hulk Hogan's in the West.

Besides being a fantastic wrestler, he was also a gamer. A Famitsu interview with Misawa lists his favorites:

Super Mario Bros.
Momotaro Dentetsu
Ganbare Goemon! Karakuri Dochu
Dragon Quest
Final Fantasy
Fire Emblem
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon
Super Robot Taisen

The 46 year-old wrestling giant will be missed.
