What is wrong with Paper Mario? (Other than another Mario rep)

#1nucacola11Posted 7/10/2013 10:55:51 AM
Seriously, I see people complaining about Paper Mario all the time, but only for one reason.

He would have an epic moveset and would be totally unique.

This is one of those things where unique moveset/ cool character > Too many reps

The only thing I've read is the very incorrect argument that he'd be a Game & Watch clone.

The only reason I could see is they're flat

It's just that a lot the moves that serve him well in his games wouldn't quite work because they're available as items (hammers, shells, etc.)

I have seen people commit the sin of accusing him of being a Mario clone, or use the slippery slope of we would then get paper luigi, paper peach, and paper bowser.

Hammer is a dumb example because we have a lot of Hammer users.

Plus, his moves could be related to his partner

Up+ B could be ultra jump

Down+B could be ground pound

B could be hammer smash

Left/Right+ B could be Bobbery throw

I like Paper Mario as a character choice.

I don't like the Paper Mario Fanbase that treats the 2nd game like smash fans often treat melee and hate the other games.

He's Mario in a different art style.

I rather have an actual unique character with a unique moveset than an already existing character in a different art style with a unique moveset.

It's pre school TC.

He'd be the best Mario newcomer, that's for sure. I think people dislike the idea of him getting in because he's the same character as Mario, but in a different art style. Still, he obviously can't be a clone.

Because not only is he another mario rep, he's literally another mario.
