POLL: Let's say the Roster limit is 40. How many would you want cut?

For the most part, I'd want to keep everyone, but I'd cut Toon Link since he's blatant clone filler and Falco because he's more of a clone to Fox than Wolf is (and honestly, I'd rather have a main antagonist than just one of Fox's teammates).

If we're assuming that every cut makes room for a brand new character, then that would allow us to have 3 newcomers. Sure, that's not a lot, but it would help Sakurai focus on improving Smash's gameplay. If the gameplay is improved enough, then I'd be fine with just a few newcomers.

In this case, that's not how Pokemon Trainer would work if he were cut. If he were cut, there would be one slot left empty.


PT counts as 3 characters in Brawl's 39 character roster (Sakurai himself has acknowledged this) and each of his Pokemon take about the same amount of time and resources as any of the other characters each.

Counting him as only one character makes absolutely no sense.


I agree with you 100% before you quoted me.

This again, dude? Haha we had this same discussion yesterday. For the sake of this situation, it's obvious I'm talking about the actual slots on the character selection screen. I know Sakurai counts Brawl as having 39 "character models."

I think you're one of the more logical people on this board, I find it hard to believe that you don't know what I'm talking about.

Also, I can't believe how many people are actually voting 9.

Do you people seriously think Smash Bros has 15 more characters that need to be in?

I understand what you mean, but the approach still doesn't make sense. Why just ignore what counts as a separate character and pretend that the amount of slots is all that matters?

The approach makes sense, it just depends on how you look at it. You can either look at it the way you're speaking of, where it would be 39 characters, or the way I'm looking at it, where it would be 34 characters. I only count each PT/Squirtle/Ivysaur/Charizard, Zelda/Sheik, and Samus/ZSS as one "character box."

I never specified that I meant 40 character boxes instead of actual character models, maybe I should have. I'll keep that in mind next time.

Takumaru or another Retro
Little Mac
Saki

The last spot could go to a Namco rep

Nine: Toon Link, Ike, Wolf, Lucario, Snake, Lucas, ROB, Diddy Kong, Game & Watch.

If the roster's not going to be (relatively) large, I think newcomers take precedence over returning fighters.
