Yknow, I hated that Erdrick "stole" a dlc spot and never cared for BK, Ive now made a complete 180 and fell in love with Banjo at first sight and now lowkey wanna give DQ11 a chance with those new gay Switch features.

I will love literally anything put in Smash.
One of us, one of us!
I'm happy DQ finally got a rep, it was long overdue even if for many it's "just another sword character".

Lowkey, I love most of the sword characters so that's never bothered me. The only thing about DQ that i was hesitant on is i reeeeeeaaaally dont like the Toriyama human art style, but it translated pretty nicely into smash honestly. The 3D models in 11, too, don't look as offputting as the art does to me typically.

Except the Luminary, god do I hate that 80s Trunks hair

Personally, whenever i'll be using The Hero, i'll use the DQVIII model. I always adored VIII's hero design


Also because of the little mouse, Munchie in his pocket.

No Idea? I was just teasing him since it's obvious that he's tired of the discussions about Tekken and Resident Evil. It's eerily similar with what he did with Erdrick and Banjo Kazooie in the past.

I think you need to cool down and not being so defensive over a joke.
I just didn't get what you were going for. I don't think he views any of those franchises as a threat, even if he clearly isn't the biggest fan of them.

On a related note, i'm glad that his hypothetical questions about Banjo are over now.

I showed my mom the trailer and she recognized them instantly as characters I spent hours playing as a kid.
Well, if we're sharing stories like this...

I woke up early for the direct (8am) I had told my sister who was sleeping on the couch ahead of time. She acknowledged me but tried to go back to sleep.

Now, a weird quirk about me is that I can't raise my voice for cheering or yelling. If I try to cheer loudly, I sound like a weird emotionless alien trying to show emote like a human. It's a childhood trauma thing, but this isn't the thread for that.

So I'm watching the trailer and partly my quirk and partly because I didn't want to wake up my sister, I'm going "Ohhhh, OHHHHHHH. Yeahhhhhhh" (slightly higher than normal speaking volume) eventually my sister, while not mad, figured there was no point in trying to sleep)

But anyway, I was sharing this story on Facebook because I'm a dork who just doesn't care and my mom says "Wow, I really thought the sword play was AMAZING. That animation. WOW!"

That's adorable. I also like the dragon statuette (?) on his backpack. If they do amiibos for the Hero skins, I miiiiight pick this one up if it has those details. The other ones don't really do much for me.

I like that the Heroes all have different equipment from there home games.

Of the ones in Smash I've only played VIII so far but I'll try III and IV soon. I'll also get XIS when it's out.


And I also wanna try the VIII 3DS port because I want to play it again.

I'll probably switch between all four but favor the Luminary and Guv skins.

I don't really like complicated characters in Smash too often, though, so I'm not sure how often I'll actually use Hero

But if Banjo-Kazooie require a complex riddle to use I will still MAIN them as hard as possible.

I see we did lists for our most wanted post-E3 picks/dreams in Smash. Nearly all are third-parties since I continue to believe that the Fighter Pass will continue to trend that way.

Mine in order:
1. Jill Valentine (Resident Evil series)
2. Doomslayer (Doom series)
3.Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden series)
4.Tracer (Overwatch)
5. Master Chief (Halo series)
6. Twintelle (ARMS, she would be so awesome but alas...)

I love doing lists. Assuming top 10 most wanted assuming no restrictions other than video game origin:

1. Master Chief (I’ll make my first and only thread in celebration when he finally makes it in)
2. Shantae
3. Sora
4. Spike (Ape Escape)
5. Jill (RE, but my love for the character is mostly based on MvC)
6. Bandanna Dee
7. Dante
8. Ryu Hayabusa
9. Poochy
10. Spyro

These constantly shift around for me beyond the top 3.
just thinking of 10 I want off the top of my head
1. Terra
2. Dante
3. KOS-MOS
4. Marx
5. Medusa (KI)
6. Tetra
7. Skull Kid
8. Magus (Chrono Trigger rep, fuck Crono)
9. Captain Syrup
10. Twintelle

Of the DLC characters Banjo seems about on par with Piranha Plant & Corrin in terms of just being like....A Character In A Fighting Game with no real special gimmick

are you feeling threaten by Tekken because it could steal the slot away from your precious Ryu? :P
Curses! HE FIGURED ME OUT! FORGIVE ME! I HAVE BEEN FOUND OUT!

I mean... No? Of course not? :p

I honestly just get bored seeing everyone talking about the same series over and over and over and over again. I think broadening our scope livens up discussion, even if Tekken and Resident Evil seem like the obvious inclusions.

Alright let’s have some speculation fun!

After these 5 DLC characters, the CSS will still not be a complete rectangle (leaving 3 spaces from a final perfect row)

People have pointed out that when it’s “echoes stacked” it’ll be a perfect rectangle, so how do we solve this?

3 MORE ECHO FIGHTERS!

So Era, what are your 3 Echo fighters?

I’ll start:

1. Midna (Twili) / Zelda
2. Medusa / Palutena
3. Octoling / Inkling
1. Jeanne / Bayonetta
2. Hilda / Zelda
3. Impa / Sheik

Get me those female and Zelda reps!

I'm happy DQ finally got a rep, it was long overdue even if for many it's "just another sword character".
I was a big DQ hater prior to the Hero reveal.

I still despise the character designs because Toriyama is a trash character designer but I really like what Sakurai did with them, he managed to make Erdrick not look like gutter scum and I recognize that is very difficult to do given the sludge he was handed to work on. That's admirable. Very happy for the DQ fans, and glad they at least put the DQ8 skin in there so I have something not trash to use if I ever need to use Hero.

Plus I got Banjo, so we all good homies
