Medusa

#1peppermintkingPosted 2/25/2013 11:43:19 AM
What are the chances that Medusa will be a playable character in this Smash Bros.? I think the developer of Kid Icarus is the one developing this one? And the series could use a female villain...
#2victinivcreate1Posted 2/25/2013 11:59:59 AM
very low chances.

Female villan is a pointless argument

Outshone by more memorable characters liek Dark Pit (arguably), Palutena, and Hades

Sakurai basically made her a no chance, as shes not even featured in 50% of the game

Genesect, Mewtwo, Ridley, Shulk, Palutena, Megaman, Isaac, Saki, Toad, King K. Rool, Ghirahim, Roy, Little Mac, Megaman, and DLC for SSB4

She HAD seniority on her side...

then Kid Icaus Uprising came out x_x

Sakurai turned her into a (evil) red herring AND threw her under the bus

Pre-KIU, people thought it was against her and Palutena, but supported Medusa more as she is two birds with one stone(female and villain), but post KIU, it just Palutena >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> other KIU characters in support.

Another issue would be having to animate her snake hair n every frame for attacks.

She would be a sweet DLC character though. I doubt a one shot baddie like Hades would get in over her. :troll face:

Medusa wasn't in KIU to begin with. That was just a wannabe Hades made out of a bunch of random souls.

The next KI game should involve Medusa coming back and making Hades her ***** for trying to take over while she was gone.

Except that Hades has already proved that he can crush Medusa with almost no effort, then bring her back and kill her again and again just for self-amusement.

He can do that with his Medusa wannabe.

Not Medusa.

Medusa in Uprising is heavily implied to be weaker than she was in the original Kid Icarus and the Medusa vs. Hades idol states very plainly that the Medusa that punches Hades' head off at the end of Uprising was a Medusa's spirit lingering after being defeated by Pit in Chapter 9 and was heavily underpowered.

Not saying that she at full power could have defeated Hades though--we know Hades is among the most powerful gods depicted in Kid Icarus mythology (Dyntos is the only one who appears to be definitively more powerful barring whatever the status of Zeus currently is) and Medusa seems to be on Palutena's level--they can both get the upper hand on one another at different times, but neither is necessarily more powerful than the other.

.....................

But man do I hate how Uprising treats Medusa and the 3 Sacred Treasures. Just a complete lack of respect for their history in the series. The image on Hades's Treasure Hunt was just needless knife twisting.
