Do you want Bandanna Dee, or do you want a Kirby character and the best option would be Bandanna Dee?

Because those are two very different things to me.
I like Dee. He’s cute and the idea of a small character with a ranged melee weapon like that would be fun.

I also don’t think it matters either way though. People can want characters for any reason they want.

The DQXI hero also gains the title of Erdrick, so that name works for both characters. I'm personally only expecting to see III and XI represented anyway.
It works, but is that something they'd really do? From what I've read in this thread before, the fact that XI's Hero gains the title Erdrick is apparently a "huge" spoiler, which, if true, seems like something they wouldn't spoil so blatantly in Smash. But maybe the "hugeness" of the spoiler is overstated (which I hope is the case, because I'm planning on playing Dragon Quest XI on Switch and it'd suck if I've already had one of the biggest reveals in the game spoiled for me thanks to Smash Bros. speculation).

I remember when bowser jr supporters thought his paint brush would save him from being a bowser clone.

lol he barely made the cut...
Well, they were more than right; he didn't even need the paintbrush to be unique. The Koopalings made it worth the decision to make him the last unique newcomer for the Smash 4 base roster.

I like Dee. He’s cute and the idea of a small character with a ranged melee weapon like that would be fun.

I also don’t think it matters either way though. People can want characters for any reason they want.
Really, yeah. If people want to legitimately support Bandana Dee, just let them do it. A cute little spear user has enough there to warrant having supporters, so there isn't any need to berate them for liking a character they like.

ROB's eyes were weird because they had emotion but there was a glitch that prevented them from being used


And they never fixed it
ROB's eyes worked on the 3DS (always) and also Smash Wii U 1.0.0

The first patch broke ROB's eyes after he used his entrance animation, so they worked in any mode without an entrance animation
Speaking of unfixed glitches, is Yoshi's Story just never getting the food removed from item-less matches? It's really ridiculous at this point.

Do we have any people deep in the Bowser Jr stanning trenches? I'm curious how common the idea of Bowser Jr using the clown car was, if at all. Seems like an idea that never really bubbled to the surface, I think even those pre-reveal smash rosters people threw together usually used NSMBDS or Sunshine renders.

When we were first hearing about it I was like "what no way"
and now, you can barely see him without it!

Galaxy started Bowser Jr. with mechs, NMSB Wii & U also heavily featured it. Its also neat reference to World and also allowed Koopalings in. I'd say it was way more interesting than Bowser semi-clone with few Paint brush swipes.

I feel like Bowser Jr support was slightly bigger in the Brawl Times, before he'd ever been anywhere near a Clown Car

The big element of me not getting it was that the initial leak stated he was in a "Mario Kart" (which to be fair it kinda is). The moment that either this got clarified or leaked it made perfect sense to me, fairly more than the paintbrush based stuff.

Yeah, most Jr. speculation revolved around him using the paintbrush so it was a surprise for everyone when he ended up in a Clown Car instead. People were pretty confident he was next in line for a Mario rep, which is why Rosalina threw so many for a loop. It wouldn't be until the ESRB leak that we found out we got both at once.

Still wish Jr. used his paintbrush instead of a generic hammer for that handful of moves, like how the other Koopalings use their wands now.

All I know is that the next animal crossing character that gets into smash better be this fucking guy or I’m starting a riot:

Who's gonna replace him in Smashville and Town & City on Saturday nights while he's fighting? Dr. Shrunk's comedy night?

They could add Gooey and then we could pretend that Slime is in and have hilarious screenshots of Erdrick vs Gooey that I'm sure wouldn't get old after 5 minutes
Gooey can be a Kirby echo where the only difference is a tongue gobble instead of an inhale. Gooey can manipulate his body to emulate all of Kirby's attacks.

I never asked for Bowser Jr., but when I saw his gameplay, he became the character I never knew I wanted.

While the overall execution was messy in the long run, I do think the Koopa Clown Car concept for Jr. was a lot more interesting and also more fitting than the paintbrush moveset idea people threw around, especially since said paintbrush was only majorly featured in one game...and that game is generally considered to be the weakest of the 3D Mario series.

Jr. received a massive boost in prominence through the Galaxy and NSMB series, so it'd make more sense to base his moveset around those games instead of Sunshine. Too bad he still sucks lol

I wouldn't call it a generic hammer, it's a classic Hammer Bro hammer and that's worthy of respect

what's really kind of weird and ill-fitting is the Koopalings using the paintbrush when they do their Final Smash

Waluigi never being playable and forever being an assist is the greatest way to rep the character.

True fans know this to be true. Only the memers think otherwise.

Yeah I'm not a fan of people trying to de-legitimize the Waluigi and Bandana Dee supporters, and I don't care to see either of those characters in. They're both frequent supporting characters with a lot of gaming history, so the support makes sense.

Clown Bar Bowser Jr. is peak Sakurai brain. It made a ton of sense -- it's what he used in his most recent and best-selling appearances (New Super Mario Bros. series), and yet nobody expected it. I don't think I saw the Clown Car mentioned in a single fan proposal. It also satisfied the fighting game mech archetype that Smash was sorely missing.

Clown Car was a great move because it legitimized Bowser Jr. as doing things only he can do in Smash, rather than playing like a small Bowser. Thought the concept was a ton of fun to see, and it felt more varied than the paintbrush.

I just want Nintendo to go full deep into Waluigi's bizarre and craziness as a actual game. Or at least with comics or just being the butt of every joke or something.

I feel little sad Waluigi got dumped into shit wagon after couple awful fans harassed Sakurai. Character in theory shouldn’t be ignored just because of some awful fans.

…I’m also worried how much harassment Sakurai really gets. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s just couple of people on Twitter, there are likely way more. Unfortunately.

Hmmm interesting data from Source Gaming Votes.

Frisk and Sans totally outnumbered Jill Valentine along with Leon as well, Waluigi barely missed Top 10, Shantae got way higher than Shovel Knight due to no AT, Porky also got high due to no Spirit and honestly Poochy as well, Steve has more than just meme support.

Too bad Geno made it 5th, so it kind of makes it seem list is bit too much in bubble of smaller community and might not represent large enough group of people.
