Dr. Mario

He was my favorite character in Melee without a doubt. But I know having him return wouldn't make any damn sense. Just hoping they give Mario an alt Doc costume that replaces fireballs with pills. It wouldn't be the same, but it would suffice.

It wouldn't be close.

I want the whole package, not a simple B change.

Yeah but it's not practical, unless they change his entire moveset. And then Doc wouldn't be the same.

Moveset change or not, he played differently enough for people like me to notice. If a character was separate in a previous game, there is no good reason to turn him/her into a alternate costume in another. It's just not the same.

He was so minutely different it was almost funny. Why use resources for that?

I kind of like the idea of alternate costumes which modify properties allowing for more Doctor Mario-like scenarios. Only one per person, but it'd be a good way to allow for more figures without taking up quite as much space.

That could be okay though.

Er, I don't see any difference in this scenario outside of the inability to have two or more Docs in a single match. All Dr. Mario was was a model swapped Mario with modified properties to his moves--you're not saving any space this way outside of space on the character select screen which is entirely arbitrary.

He was my main in Melee, and I hated playing as Mario. So there's my reason--I liked playing as him. And honestly, I can't imagine Dr. Mario as an alternate character would take that much in the way of resources. Wario Man could have easily taken more resources than Dr. Mario did.

Point taken.

I don't understand what the frustration surrounding Dr. Mario is. Why not just make a Dr. Mario alt that changes the sound and look of his fireball? Boom, Dr. Mario right there. The statistical differences between Mario and Dr. Mario were moot point, so I'm not entirely certain why they'd need to be adjusted, but it certainly wouldn't be a huge issue to do some light number tweaks assigned to a new costume to make it more authentic to his Melee incarnation.

Same with Roy. Just have the VA change and add fire to attacks on the alt costume. Done.
