Too big. Samus wouldn't be able to take it.

Bowser has undergone major size shifts over the generations, do it here.

Thinking about possible abilities. It could work extremely well.

What he has against him that he was pushed aside in every Smash Bros game, despite his high demand and importance to the Metroid series. Even Zero Suit Samus was considered before him. There's also the rather minor problem of shrinking his awkwardly shaped body and making it work as a fighting character in a game like Smash Bros.

What he has going for him is that the pool of potential newcomers gets smaller with each installment. His chances may be higher because of this, but at the same time it's also very likely that we'll be getting a smaller amount of newcomers this time around.

I would love to see him a least as a boss character or something.

I guess we can't have any newcomer that existed during the 64 era either then. After all, they were all pushed aside for other characters too.

There'd be no trouble shrinking Ridley if he was given proportions like he had in Super Metroid. Nobody complained about his wings and tail being too small there.

I'd like Ridley. He could has some pretty devastating special moves. But he sounds really really annoying when you fight him (in fusion at least).

Because the series has already dubbed him and sized him up as a Boss. Twice.

I know his size isn't a huge deal. Just a minor one, like I said originally, that may take some extra effort to implement.

And I was talking about the most demanded characters, not every single one that's existed since the 64 era. It's just that Ridley was always one of the most demanded characters since the 64 installment existed.
