All weapons,items,heal items, any item that summons assistance allowed like examplecarina epona song and every characters ability added from every game into one.

Samus:A human breed chazo warrior who weilds Highly advance armor long rang and mid range fighter and has high agility/speed even w/o suit. High durability and face scanner can revel items and weak points
Weaknesses:Armor is very weak against Highly powerful moves like mother brains Death beam or Metriod prime swift attack(fushion), susceptible to viruses, stress tramatic disorder makes her hasitant warrior (metriod m),and taking irrational orders in deadly situations,charging into situations hastly questions both her logic/sense and makes her a reckless fighter(metriod m and fusion) So whose the victor?
Starman, Crystal Stars, Pure Hearts, Star Rod/Beam?
Triforce, Oath to Order, Four Sword, Phantom Sword?
Phazon, Hyper Beam, Omega Cannon, Command Visor?
One of these three has a slightly lower maximum than the others. In any case, my knee-jerk reaction to "all items" here is Mario, just edging out Link, because he has some really awesome stuff.
The Star Rod is a wish granting item that can make the user practically invincible, heal, call lightning bolts, and trap creatures in cards. Mario admittedly didn't use it himself, but he took it from Bowser and can call the Star Spirits, who have used it, if only because outside help is now allowed. Incidentally, the Star Spirits have the Star Beam, and Mario has the Pure Hearts, both of which have shown the ability to shut down powerful artifacts and get rid of buffs. Both together, and Link's Triforce may not even matter. The Star Spirits and Crystal Stars also give Mario access to earthquakes, time stops, buffs and debuffs, and can transform others into harmless stars (though Link may have resistance to this, Star Beam/Pure Hearts has a chance of shutting it down).
Link, for his part, can possibly have four of himself on the field, thanks to the Four Sword, and the Phantom Sword (+ outside help) gives him access to a time stop. The Triforce is another wish granting artifact, but again, Star Rod/Pure Hearts. Not positive on how that one goes. Oath to Order was more or less a joke, but hey, the Four Giants owe him a favor. Best edge I think Link might have is the Stone Mask making him unnoticeable.
Samus is less lucky when it comes to awesome items. She can't even have her wishes granted. That said, her best stuff is destruction incarnate, and she's got a severe speed edge on Mario and can move a bit faster than Link. The Phazon Enhancement Device's Hyper Mode, the Hyper Beam, and possibly Omega Cannon (questionable) are close to one hit kills for unbuffed Mario and Link, so there's a chance she could pull something off before either of them initiates GodMode and begins stomping around. Command Visor lets her use her ship to bomb from orbit, maybe she could do that.
It may not be that clean-cut. Mario has the best power ups and items, but he can only use one at a time and it takes awhile for him to switch, while samus and link can switch between which item they use relitively quick making them more adaptable in a long fight.
plus marios stamina with powerups are real low except for starman which has a decent endurance. link as a long range fighter can hit mario in powerup than more hits and its over before mario can get close enough. link has alot of heart with added defense to hearts and he can use niburu love and dins fire.
Mario with every item can shut down a multiverse level artifact, at least. The Chaos Heart (not used by Mario) is capable of wiping dimensions from existence, including the afterlife, and defending the user from the aforementioned destruction as well as most anything else. Mario has the Pure Hearts, which can shut down the Chaos Heart's shield and recreate anything that was erased.
Mario's multiverse level abilities aren't actually offensive in nature, as it's more like a giant buff remover/reset button. Hence why I say Mario could shut down the Triforce and not much else.
The real problem here is Mario's copious Time Stop abilities. He could use a Stop Watch, summon Klevar for a Time Out, or use the Emerald Star's Clock Out ability, all of which either stop time or freeze opponents in time. At which point Mario can do whatever he wants, because no one can stop him after he starts.
Eh, Starman isn't actually that powerful ever since New Super Mario Bros. showed it being vulnerable to magma. Din's Fire may or may not be able to bypass it, but Nayru's Love probably gets removed by a Star Beam.
On reflection, Samus is the fastest one here, so it all comes down to what she does first. If she blitzes Mario, then Link wins via Time Stop during the distraction. If she blitzes Link, then Mario wins via Time Stop during the distraction. It really depends on which one can pull their time shenanigans first, if Samus can't get both of them at once.
The Purity Heart could also recreate multiple dimensions that were destroyed, so that isn't its only power. And while the Star Beam is used to drain the Star Rod, it is also able to dispels power up other enemies use. Magikoopa's sometimes make other enemies intangible or increase their attack/defense and the Star Beam can get rid of that. It's just so uncommon and buffs are so rare you almost never actually need to do that.
Stopwatches tend to be decently quick, but yeah. I'm not sure what to make of Thousand Year Door's version.
Normally, yes, but the OP allows outside help if they can summon it.
Basically, Samus will beat one of them, it just depends on what the other does while she blitzes and if they can pull off any hax.
Not unless you count it as a reversal of the Chaos Hearts power. I could find the vid but Im sure they say its only for the Chaos effects. Even if thats not the case, recreating destroyed dimensions isnt useful unless said dimensions are being destroyed, not really combat suited.
Ah so it does, thought Im wondering if a Shield counts as a status effect after checking the status effects in Paper Mario, but it probably does.
Urrm its probably one of the three effects I said, read up on it ages ago. (Emerald Star?)
I don't think Link has an item that lets him summon her.
Ignoring Time powers for a second (is that a time pun?), neither Mario or Link have any notable hax available that I'm aware of.
Ice, fire or whatever tricks they have wont be much of a concern.
"Gonna need more chloroform..."
"If you look down on us, judge us, condemn us... then you shall fear us!"
I might check, but for now them being opposites works. Not too important to the fight anyway.
A shield I'm positive on, but it could fall under a defense up.
Yeah, it's Emerald Star, but it's got a weird effect that is only possible in a turn based game. Unless Samus and Link feel like playing hot potato with a huge time bomb, Time Out or a Stop Watch are better alternatives.
He doesn't, but he can equip her (and other fairies) as an item. She gives him sword beams. Up in the air whether that counts. Like Cortana for Master Chief I guess?
Link has Spell or Ether, which can transform enemies into smaller, nigh harmless blob things; Mario can have a Lamb's Lure or Kalmar transform things into sheep or stars, respectively. They both can resist each other's transformations (Triforce of Courage and Trueform Pin, respectively,) but Samus doesn't really have a defense against it.
Then Link has the Four Sword, so there's four of him. And the Stone Mask makes him "unnoticeable," apparently so boring that you'll just ignore him even after he stabs you in the face.
Can't recall much more than that off the top of my head.
