I mean, I think he's a cool idea, but he ended up being so damn boring. Laser beams! Spinning around! Flying! Nothing he did was fun or unique, he was just a generic robot. That's not really Sakurai's fault either; ROB is just such a boring design in the first place that it's hard to give him a very creative moveset.
I don't think they're going to cut ROB at all, I just think he was a really boring character and it's weird seeing people talk about how he was so unique and interesting.

I think he's a ton of fun to play as and as an important part of Nintendo's history he belongs with the all-stars. --- darkx remembers his friend, GrapefruitKing. RIP :( CB9 Score: Officially f***ed.

Rob has a really unique moveset, even if it is generic Robot.

I agree that he's important, I'm not arguing that. His implementation was just boring and, unlike other unexpected characters like Game & Watch or Wii Fit Trainer, he's not really interesting or funny at all, just a generic robot.

R.O.B. is just a toy, just like the Super Scope. Make it an assist trophy and call it a day. --- 3DS FC: 1633-5186-2026

I don't think he's a very interesting character, but his moveset is fun. --- My random webcomic with a weird name! www.vinigortonioenglish.weebly.com

I will never not like something that can fly around and shoot laser beams. --- Nature sig.

No, never liked it

I didn't find anything about him particularly impressive. He really didn't need to be playable, either. An assist trophy would have been fine. --- I'm a Brony AND a Sonic the Hedgehog fan!? Man, I must be the worst person of all time!
