Why do they call him Little Mac?
5'7 is tall.
>unironically being a manlet
5'9 is the average height for the human male. Also, he's a boxer, a sport in which the biggest and best are the people who prosper. If you're under six foot, you're at a severe disadvantage. Also, Little Mac would probably be a featherweight, a far cry from the heavyweight people he's taking down in the game.
Because during fights he hunches forward, making him look smaller.
The smaller frame helps tighten his body to take blows and also reduces the percentage of getting hit.
He also has a small dick.
The correct progression is:
See, you're trying to be as subtle and quick as possible with your joke. The moment you said "5'7" is tall, we instantly got to the punchline before you did. That's bad jokesmanship. We should always be slower than you.
He's literally Steve Rogers, without a sculpted body.
He used to be 4'8"
A Japanese schoolgirl would be like Mike Tyson to new Mac.
Now imagine what Mike Tyson was like to NES Mac. The guy that had to jump to jab people.
Damn straight. And this lady draws porn.
I like the theory that Mac is actually an ill teenager that was visited by the Make a Wish Foundation and fulfilled his dream of becoming the boxing champion.
