Tower Bridge is a real-world historic bridge in London. It has made a few appearances in Sega-related media, notably Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games.


Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games (Wii)[edit]

In Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games for the Wii, Tower Bridge first appears during the opening and also as the image on the sticker for 2-on-2 Tag!. It also appears as a feature on the map for London Party, where players can use it to cross the river.

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games (Nintendo 3DS)[edit]

In Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games for the Nintendo 3DS, Tower Bridge appears in the background for one stage of the Marathon Event. Tower Bridge also appears as the location for several of the Story Mode episodes. It first appears as the setting of The Blocked Bridge, in which the bridge has been raised due to the low visibility caused by the orange Phantasmal Fog, meaning that Yoshi, Sonic and Tails are unable to cross it. After beating a pair of imposters, the group encounter Shadow and Silver, and later Jet, who manages to find the fog machine after being defeated in The Wind Master. Jet unsuccessfully tries to destroy the machine and the group is approached by Bowser Jr. In Enter Bowser?!, Bowser Jr. is defeated by the group and accidentally reveals that Bowser is working with Dr. Eggman before escaping on his Bullet Bill, followed by Yoshi. Shadow destroys the fog machine and the clears the fog from around the bridge, allowing it to be lowered, and the group split off to investigate other foggy areas around London. Yoshi, Shadow, Silver and Jet call Mario, Luigi, Sonic and Tails from Tower Bridge in The Grand Showdown to tell them that they have cleared the fog from the area and to encourage the group. Tower Bridge finally appears in the episode Junior, Super Hero?, in which Bowser Jr. defeats an Egg Pawn and Flapper that were cornering Omochao and a Chao, and then is challenged by Shadow and Silver to an Olympic event, in which he defeats them before heading off with Goomba to find more robots to defeat.
