Shadow, Silver, Knuckles, Tails, and More [Video Inside]

I've always loved the Sonic Characters and so glad that people did model hacks to allow this to exist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMPp0rgELGM . Yeah, it does require the Home Brew Channel, but so worth it. I especially like the Silver, Jet, and Tails one. I also recorded some other videos, they're on my channel too. Enjoy! Maybe if Nintendo puts Sonic in WiiU SSB they'll make some more unique Alts for him!

having entirely different characters as alt costumes is an awful idea, as this video quite effectively shows

it's just f***ing dumb having all of those different characters with the same moves and voice as sonic

It doesn't require the Homebrew Channel.

You bumped a week-and-a-half-old topic to say that? And it still requires homebrew or piracy, regardless.

Come to the board in my quote for math discussion and pretty much anything else.

A week and a half? Jeez, I just saw it on the first page and assumed it was yesterday or something...

Also it doesn't require piracy. What would make you think that?

50 topics per page does more harm than good on a dead board.

And please note the OR in my message.

*yeah I bumped it again, deal with it*

I'm not fond of other characters as alternate costumes because the moveset for a character in smash is to show off their signature moves from their games (yeah falcon has an original moveset, but you get the point). That vid is a good example of why. Those moves are ones used by sonic and sonic mainly, the other sonic characters clearly have different moves than rolling into a ball and hitting people at high speeds.

Tails can fly, Knuckles can punch things hard, Shadow uses chaos powers, and Silver has tele/psychokinesis. None of those are things sonic can do, and none of them (shadow you could possibly get away with, but they have plenty of differences between them) can do what sonic does

tl;dr, all alt. characters as alt costumes are reskins without any of their signature moves

Lol, I don't give a s*** enough to rage anymore

^Technically, Knuckles and Tails have been rolling into balls since their debuts. Knuckles had a homing attack (more like an equivalent to Sonic's Light Attack) in Sonic Adventure, too. Aside from a lack of gliding, Sonic's moveset actually fits Knuckles pretty well, and Tails to a lesser extent if you've played Sonic the Fighters.

similarities from the old games, yeah, if they were going off that. Since then, they've been differntiated enough from sonic to have at least luigified movesets
