Satoru's Rainbow by professorhazard Satoru's Rainbow by professorhazard
I struggled to think about what kind of tribute to leave for a great man like Nintendo president Satoru Iwata. Time turned out to be the deciding factor, as a rainbow appeared over Japan's Nintendo headquarters the next day. The idea of him riding the Rainbow Road was just what I needed.

Iwata was a programmer on Balloon Fight, Kirby, and Earthbound, and was instrumental in making the Kanto region playable in Pokémon Gold and Silver, as well as creating Pokémon Stadium. I personally loved his quirky style, his Nintendo Direct videos, and his dedication to the company.

The sigil on his Famicom-colored kart is from the old Nintendo playing cards. I hope it actually says "Nintendo" and not "trademark".
