what was the point of minions?

It would have made things more interesting if minions had special abilities. Instead of adding stupid items. That would have kept the players wanting more.

They are like costumes. They are only there so the developers can add more that people have to pay for in order to try and look cool online.

There is no point that's the point.

I think most people would vastly prefer costumes. Neither add anything to the game, but costumes just seem so much better.

The minions do look pretty stupid...

Not buying SSB4 without the inclusion of the flower fairy Lip as a playable character.

It would just be as bad as gems in that one game if they did that.

If you're talking about STxT, it could be done differently. That game had DLC gems that default gems obsolete, right? I don't have the game myself. I remember people complaining about a dlc gem that had the same requirements/activation method as a standard gem, yet had twice the gain.

As long as minions weren't paid DLC it could work.

Imagine if minions could somehow affect the gameplay (with the option to disable them.)

The minions could at least have voices or unique animations that set them apart from eachother. But that would mean Superbot had to put effort into them.

And there's still one busted clapping animation where they pretty much blink out of the screen instead of dropping down. They should stay purely aesthetic, though.
