What is the least recognized Nintendo franchise?

Nintendo has a lot of great series, and a lot of them actually aren't all that popular. What is, in your opinion, THE least recognized?

Well Metroid is extremely recognized by huge amounts of people. How exactly did it make this list? It's often the icon of Nintendo, being one of it's most successful franchises. Star Fox too.

They are still not as popular as some. I have spoken to many people that when I mention those 2, ask what they are.

It is important to remember that not everyone is a hardcore gamer, or Nintendo fan. Some series, like Zelda or Mario transcend this, but others do not.

Well to anyone who just plays video games in general, they've most likely heard of it.

indiehipster will become famous soon enough

I think Custom Robo is the least known. People played Kid Icarus on the nes. Everything else had a moment of glory.

Kid Icarus. Yes Pit was in Brawl, and I hear it was even because the fans asked, but I have a feeling if Pit wasn't popular in Brawl Nintendo wouldn't have bothered making a sequel. At least every other game on this list had a sequel a long time ago.

Mother is also the least recognized, at least here in North America. Part of it was a bad marketing campaign, the other part was that American gamers just couldn't appreciate EarthBound at the time. Either way, sales did not really go like Nintendo of America had hoped hence why Mother 3 was Japan only like the original Mother. People pretty much only want it now because Ness in Super Smash Bros. If he wasn't in Smash Bros, hardly anyone would know about the series.
