Popeye for Smash!

Miyamoto wanted to do Popeye prior to Donkey Kong. And isn't he public domain by now?

No thanks. Video game characters only, please.

His earlier cartoons are public domain, but his character itself is still copyrighted.
Even if they could get him, I don't think Popeye would be good for Smash Brothers. Besides not being an original video game character, I can't imagine him being very interesting to play as. Throwing anchors, using his pipe to fly, punching... Final Smash being spinach.

Considering Mario wouldn't exist if it weren't for Popeye, he is the one non-game character that could be considered important to Nintendo.

Sorry, there's nothing here.

It wasn't for Popeye. If it were, we wouldn't have Mario.

Surely there's no problem with them putting me in Brawl, right?
It's ****ing satire, damnit. In NGE, Doritos are perishable goods

I can pretty much see this:

- Popeye Punch - chargeable punch that can reflect attacks, deal moderate damage, break guards AND move, but cannot be "stored"
- Pipe Fly - uses his pipe to fly; has a trajectory like Lucario's ExtremeSpeed but can deal damage
- Anchors Away - hurls an anchor; charging has him swing the anchor around him, which deals damage; more charge has the anchor travel further and deal more damage
- Twister Punch - multi hit drill punch that moves Popeye forward
- Spinach - super buff mode that enhances Popeye's attacks
