I'll say racing since I don't want to say Smash is a Mario spin-off.

I was going to select 'rpg' but the selection you put for that simple boggles the mind.

Could you not pick more pathetic and useless rpgs? actually I'm not sure I'd even classify 2 of them as rpgs. ughhh

Well it kind of is...replace Smash with Mario in the title, and theres your inspiration for the title Super Smash Bros.

Those are just franchises dog. Not specific games. Did you see me list every single Mario sports game by title, or name every Mario Kart game?

That can't be the only reason why you would think that is. I just don't see it in the game.

Paper Mario is my favorite game franchise of all time.

It's not the only reason. It also has both Mario brothers, Princess Peach, Bowser, Yoshi etc. If you think Super Smash Bros would exist without Mario, you are fooling yourself.

Smash Bros is a Kirby fighting game.

It borrows more from Kirby than any other franchise.

It is NOT a Mario game and it would totally do fine without Mario.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.
