March is Women's History Month, and in honor of the occasion, Nintendo is highlighting some of its strongest female characters.

You'll find a collection of just a few of Nintendo's favorite female characters here along with one we haven't heard from in some time.

The six characters above we're all intimately familiar with, but Paper Mario's Bobmette is one we haven't heard from (or played as) in some time. Here's her description from Nintendo.

Bombette is a Bob-omb who joins Mario on his quest in the original Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64. As a member of Mario’s diverse team of fighters, she has an explosive fighting style and isn’t afraid to get physical with her body slam and powerful bomb attacks.
