One evokes pizza
One fuzzy, maybe funny
Spooks, fruit or pork, frog
Double letters (in Japan?)
Two known names; link them to solve
Bonus: This poem has link, too

Hint 1:

All lines apply to
two characters in my mind.
Although both are in
entertainment, only one
renown in video games.

Hint 2:

Spelling clue somewhere,
but answers' forms could vary.
How they sound matter the most.

Warming up for a puzzle inspired by this fortnight's theme... Don't worry; it would not be more of my awful poems.

I believe the characters are:

Pacman and Fozzy bear from the Muppet Show

Because

pacman is shaped like a pizza with a slice missing
Fozzy is fuzzy, and is a lame comedian
pacman deals with ghosts and fruit, fozzy has Ms Piggy and Kermit (pork and frog)
In japanese, pacman is sometimes spelled Pakkuman
The link: they both go Wakka-wakka!

  • $\begingroup$ Correct! Thanks for saving me from having to do another waka hint, which explains the "bonus" line. You got enough lines to earn the check. $\endgroup$ – Mythi Oct 13 '15 at 5:33

Here's what I suspect so far, but it's a bit kooky/incomplete at places:

These are all Super Smash Bros 4 characters

One evokes pizza

My best bet so far is Wario, since in the WarioWare series, there is a character Mona Pizza that sells...well you get it. There's also a song on WarioWare stage called "Mona Pizza's Song"

One fuzzy, maybe funny

This one I don't get. At first I thought Donkey Kong/Diddy Kong, but the clue implies it's a single character.

Spooks

Pacman & ghost co.

fruit or pork

Here I think this is Mr. Game & Watch. I haven't played him in SSB4, but in brawl, it was difficult to tell if what he was flinging in his neutral B was bacon or fish or what. Also one of his Side-B results (7, I think?) drops a healing fruit.

frog

Greninja is a frog Pokemon

Double letters (in Japan?)

There are a couple characters with double letters, but the Japan clue makes me more certain that it's Wii Fit Trainer (where Villager would not have double--or single--L in it's Japanese rendition and Wii is the Japanese name for the console)

Two known names; link them to solve

This was the clue that started it off for me, this seems to hint at Zelda and her alter ego Sheik. The inclusion of the word link reinforces this.

Bonus: This poem has link, too

Link himself is also a character in the game

  • $\begingroup$ +1 for attempt (and for reminding me of good gaming times), and you did get one of the names. I'm going to update my question with a clarification hint that this puzzle is about just two characters and I'm looking for what these two have in common. $\endgroup$ – Mythi Oct 9 '15 at 16:06
