AND A FINAL CHOICE THAT IS RATHER OBSCURE…
-Pikmin 3 Antagonist Creature
Here’s what it looks like: http://images.wikia.com/pikmin/images/5/54/Pikmin3_WTFISTHIS.jpeg
-Pokemon Trainer (Squirtle, Ivysaur, Charizard)
Total Characters: 45
EXPLANATIONS FOR THOSE I DEEM NECESSARY:
It was either keep Pokemon Trainer or Lucario; I felt like Pokemon Trainer was too heavily disliked and Lucario would play too much like Mewtwo, so I figured Zoroark would be a good addition. Representing generation five, Zoroark could use basic punches, jabs, chops, tail whaps, and kicks with his lanky body and of course dark/psychic type attacks such as his illusions.
Despite all the oversized character debate, I think he could easily be shrunk down to SSB size. Of course he would be a heavyweight. I honestly hate his new Other M model, so I hope they would use his Metroid Prime form. Metroid hasn’t been popular recently, but I think it’s an original sci-fi franchise that deserves at least one more character.
Really no explanation cause he won’t make it in, but he would fun would he not? A fierce dinosaur at your disposal… versus Mario?
I felt bad cutting Falco, but he is a complete clone of Fox. In more recent games, Krystal rivals the relevance of Falco, being Fox’s girlfriend and whatnot, and she could have a much more unique moveset ranging from bombs to magic. So yes, I think Krystal is a relevant character to the series that would make a great fighter and an acceptable replacement of Falco.
Earthbound is an abused franchise. Does it deserve three characters? No. But Masked Man, I feel would make a unique, lightweight antagonist. He has what, PSI, some sort of sword, and wings? Wow… but in any case he could be omitted and I wouldn’t care.
Pikmin 3 Antagonist:
Pikmin is one of the most original, creative, underrated franchises of all time (IMO). Pikmin 3 deserves two reps at most, and for advertisement and variety’s sake this odd creature makes the cut. Able to morph his golden, fluid-like body into various shapes pertaining to various hazards, he would make a versatile, epic fighter. While I wouldn’t say it’s out of the question… it’s probably not happening. I am very excited given that Pikmin usually doesn’t have villians; nature itself is usually the antagonist!
Poor F-Zero, always getting stuck with just a single rep when there are so many possibilities. Granted the single rep is the most badass man ever created, but still...
Ridley is Love, Ridley is Life
Takamaru isn't from the Samurai Warriors series. He was just a guest character in one of those games.
Able to morph his golden, fluid-like body into various shapes pertaining to various hazards, he would make a versatile, epic fighter.
I read 'Able' as 'Alph' and for a second I was absolutely horrified
