The Smash OT
Forever bitter that we aren't getting Bomberman.
I'm there with you.

I'm keeping Chibi-Robo in my avatar until I will him into existence
You are a smart person with good tastes.

This is our post-Fighters Pass roster.



Do you accept? I'll never accept Steve until he's staring me right in the face.
Nope. As I've stated before, Smash lining Sugiyama's pockets in anyway makes Erdrick a non-starter for me. I'd honestly accept this list without Erdrick, & with Steve instead of Banjo-Kazooie. But Banjo-Kazooie objectively improves this.

I always felt like Majima would be a better fit for Smash.
Even though majima.is definitely a fan favourite, since he's not the main character of the series, he's not in the running regardless of popularity. Since Yakuza isn't big enough for two characters, it's kiryu or nothing (realistically it's nothing).

Make em both, one of them being an echo of the other, ala Ryu and Ken with different normals and maybe a few specials.

His moveset:
B: Throw vombs
Side B: Roll bombs
Down B: Lay down a bomb
Up B: Bomb yourself upwards
Down Smash: Bomb.


Wow.
In Brawl/4, three of Sonic’s moves were a variation of the spin dash, and Villager, Wii Fit Trainer, and Pac-Man all show that a bit of creativity can go a long way in providing moves for a character. Unless all the Bomberman games are exactly the same, a character with as many games as him would have been be completely feasible.

Travis Touchdown or bust.
The only reason I hope the rumor is fake is I still want him.

I don’t mind Steve but I’d take the leak roster but swap Steve for Travis.
How likely is it that we get two characters with the name Ryu? :thinking:
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Eyes of Heaven has two Jotaro’s, two Josuke’s, three Dio’s, two Diego’s, and two Pucci’s.


I think we can handle two people named Ryu.

Down Smash: Bomb.

Wow.
Little Mac's moveset:

B: Charge a punch
Side B: Punch while jumping
Down B: Counter... with a punch
Up B: Punch upwards
Down Smash: Punch.

Wow.

But to be serious, there are plenty of things Bomberman could do. For example, the different types of bombs such as Pierce, Rubber, and Remote Bombs could have cool effects, and he could call upon Louies and Charaboms to assist him.

Wow.
I'm pretty sure someone said the same about Sonic's moveset but with rolls instead of bombs, yes, he rolls a lot, but there he is

Can you please come with a moveset for a Piranha Plant stuck in a pipe?

I don't really understand the reception to the leaked DLC roster. Honestly, my biggest problem with it is Ryu Hayabusa, I don't care for Ninja Gaiden whatsoever as a franchise, and I don't feel that Hayabusa would make for an interesting character. I'm actually super super excited for Erdrick and especially Steve. Doomguy seems like he could be cool but is kinda take it or leave it for me. I really don't get the negative reception towards Steve, he's hugely important and would probably have a really cool style of moveset. To me it just seems like people think Minecraft is "cringey", which is a really really lame criticism imo. It's an amazing game in almost every aspect, who cares if the audience sucks?

Speaking only for myself, I just think "Steve" both isn't a character, and the general animation style and visual style of Minecraft is just so viscerally hideous it would look completely out of place in Smash. Like, you can't even do anything cute with it like you can with Game and Watch's start-stop animations because it's not dated the way he is, it's just...cheap. Really low-quality textures stretched across ultra-simple polygons and low-quality animation. That would just clash pretty hard with everyone else in the game.

But as I said, that's just speaking entirely for me. I had a completely different list of hopes for DLC characters and literally no one I've been hoping for seems to have a shot of getting in, so seeing all these "entirely for marketing reasons" picks is a huge bummer.

Apologies to memoryman3 , I just checked, it wasn't Daisy who wants Erdrick to save her, it's Peach. Daisy says "I hear they kidnap princesses around here... I guess Bowser's not the only guy who's into abducting royalty!" My bad.

Inspired me to make this really quick for giggles.

I mean, when has Smash not gone for the main character first? Granted, I could see us getting Twintelle in the next Smash game, but not without us getting Spring Man first. It’d be like picking Chun-Li over Ryu. She’s popular, but not the face of the franchise.
There were 4 Pokemon reps before we got the Pokemon Trainer.

So here’s a hypothetical. Let’s say Erdrick is revealed.

If the alt costumes end up matching up with the one stated in the leak would that be enough to convince you?

Yeah, Anluncia specifically is a very odd choice, so if she's there I'd trust the leak about everything else.

But that leak didn't comes with Ryu, Steve and Doom. It comes from another source tho.
From IGN’s article about the rumor.
The leak from 5Channel also suggests Dragon Quest X’s Anlucia and Dragon Quest XI’s hero character will be available as alternate Erdrick skins. The rumor also claims unspecified Dragon Quest games are coming to Switch this year in addition to the confirmed Dragon Quest XI S.

If that’s wrong then oh well we’ll see.

If this leak is truth it is a huge let down for me.I will not get any of dlc characters. I feel like letting a character like Elma out when they only have one character to represent that series is a mistake.
One character to represent one of the worst-selling franchise out of the ones represented doesn't really strike me as an odd choice. The only one that I can point to as easily having sold less is ROB.
Height comparison between Lucina and "Brave"

It's definitely Super Famicom Erdrick.
It's probably a Bowser Jr. situation with multiple characters, not just 3 and X. It is a big reach to use height to try to winnow it down to just a specific version of the class. Just "Hero" as the name with vastly different skins.

Can somebody give that skin a Chrono color scheme 😂😂😂 I be fine with that and also if SE is not music stingy
DQ VI's Hero is Basically Crono.

Nah, the Ryu/Steve/Marine leak also mentioned the Luminary and Anlucia alts.

Also a quick reminder that it was posted before the other Erdrick 5chan leak, so if it ends up right we should probably pay attention to it.
Huh, really. I remember there is a post/article about it and somehow alt costumes was excluded from it so I presume that some people here put both together.
