Smash isn't canon. I don't see the goddamn problem in ignoring canon size for gameplay purposes.


This. Other characters have been resized, so I don't see why there's such a problem with Ridley being resized. It's not like people are asking for him to be the size of Olimar or anything.

Then what's the goddamn problem with shrinking Ridley so he works as a playable character?


Well, according to Sakurai, he would be "too slow." And obviously, if he's the largest Smasher in the game, he'd be the easiest to knock around too.

They could still make it work, I guess, but it would have to be a hell of a balancing act, wouldn't it?

Why do people want to play as Ridley so much?
I don't imagine him actually being fun to play as.

Genuinely curious.

Why do people want to play as Kuma? He's a bear, they don't naturally walk like people or even work in the mechanics of a human-based fighting game.

Surely there's no problem with them putting me in Brawl, right?
It's ****ing satire, damnit.

I wouldn't know and you wouldn't know either. All we know is that several years ago Sakurai thought it would be difficult based on his thoughts at the time. There is no proof whether or not Sakurai still thinks that.

Because other people don't have the same imagination as you.

Well at least I'm going off of something that Sakurai actually said at one point. You know, rather than just hoping for the improbable best. >_>

See, I can do it too. Just insert any random name in there, and it works. Simple.
