>Of course, this likely doesn’t include any hidden characters that Nintendo has in mind for the series, so keep that in mind for next month when this issue surfaces.
This is all I ask until the game actually comes out in japan at least.
>However, it’s probably best to take this with a large grain of salt for now as some additional digging revealed that CoroCoro supposedly announced the full cast for Super Smash Bros. Brawl in a “Smash Bros Book” back in 2007, but later it was confirmed some hidden and unannounced characters were not included in the publication.
Ridley is dead, just give up. It's not worth disappointment all the time.
Expect more waifu pandering and handjobs to series with under five million lifetime sales.
>it's just a fake 'leak' mock-up
>mfw when it features shaq, 6-slot BIG ridley and banjo-kazooie
>reveal the whole roster
>reveal every stage
>reveal every game type
>no mystery left
>unlocking becomes a slog to make the full game playable instead of a fun surprise as each new thing is unlocked
I really fucking hate the internet age sometimes. Why isn't anything allowed to be a surprise any more?
I think if they're going to reveal everything before the game even comes out they should just make everything unlocked from the start. What's the point of unlockables when there's no surprise or mystery to it?
Unfortunately, you're wrong.
>Shut up, they're not going to reveal Ridley because he's a hidden character! He's in the game, I just know it!!
And even if the game comes out, there are still going to be people who will say shit like:
>Shut up, Ridley's going to be added as DLC! I just know it!!
This doesn't really apply to Smash, but sometimes the fun is in earning those unlockables yourself. It doesn't matter that you already know what's coming, what matters is the fact that you put in the time, you beat the challenges, and you unlocked whatever was hidden.
Yeah cool, that's great. I didn't really want any sort of surprise anyways. I'm sure the hype won't be lost like what happened with Brawl where everything was on the dojo.
At least the Ridleyfags will finally shut up.
Quick fags name your mains in order
Look at what happened to your favorite party fighter.
Isn't it just going to be everyone available at the start? So there may be a veteran or two that hasn't been previously confirmed, and we'll find out if the third-party characters have to be unlocked this time around, but I'm guessing all the remaining newcomers will be unloackable.
they allready have revealed most of them.
i don't like what they're doing with all the reveals, i'd rather be surprised by who's in it
I just can't justify Zelda and Samus getting two slots and Toon Link still in it.
>mfw Ridley gets confirmed and anti-Ridleyfags bitch and moan
>mfw Ridley gets deconfirmed and Ridleyfags bitch and moan
That's going to be one entertaining as fuck day.
>Ike is back
>Mario and Link still there
It looks pretty nice so far.
The only things I regret is that Sanic and Olimar are back, other than that, keep em coming
>newcomer video every monday until August 12th
sakurai wouldnt want the magazine to take away all the hype would he?
They're only going to show us characters that have been shown. They probably will spoil all the gamemodes and stages though.
Sakurai has a couple, maybe like 1-3 trailers left to show doesn't he? Unless he plans to drop all three during the print, don't get too excited.
> I will abandon Nintendo the day they pander to Metroidfags.
Uhh what? So by that argument, you should have already given up on Nintendo since they made ZSSamus into her own character.
i just want you to know, you're right.
Maybe because of Other M.
Aside from that, a lot of people are cool with her, especially since Zero Mission exists.
Although I'd much rather prefer Samus to just be in her bikini just like the old games
Just like they did with Brawl, right?
Same wording and everything?
Except they didn't. They used the same wording when they did this for Brawl, except they didn't even show the full starting roster, let alone the hidden one. They didn't reveal anyone new.
Smash is forcing the awful as fuck Other M reboot down our throats and separating Zero Suit from Samus is an excuse to say "Hey look you got a second rep!" without having to do any actual work.
Metroid is getting completely shafted in Smash 4.
These are my predictions and such.
Keep in mind that I had Chrom listed as a prediction with 100% certainty, and we all know how that turned out.
>Smash is forcing the awful as fuck Other M reboot down our throats and separating Zero Suit from Samus is an excuse to say "Hey look you got a second rep!" without having to do any actual work.
Yeah that's how I see it.
It doesn't take too much work to expand on ZS Samus' moveset, given that she already had one in Brawl.
I just wish we got another Metroid rep. Not necessarily Ridley, but the problem is that there's no other characters that really stand out (including the Hunters).
Oh well. It's not like Nintendo cares too much about the series anyway, given that they never even bothered acknowledging Metroid's 25th anniversary. I'm still skeptical when it comes to Shiggy's interview regarding the future of the franchise. I'll believe it once we get more footage of it.
Its probably safe to say that Jiggly is in, I mean she is one of the original 12.
WHY CAN'T I HAVE MY FUCKING DR. MARIO ALT COSTUME
>New characters reveal trailer
>Contestants fight on a map
>Hueg shadow appear above them
>See fear into contestant eyes
>Samus is one of them
>Ridley rush in!... as a stage hazard
>See all the ridleyfags bitching and crying
That would be the ultimate shitstorm
>Get puched the fuck out by Falcon
>Falcon looks at the screen and says Disconfirmed
This would be beautiful
It's all fair game. If people can still cling to Ridley, I can cling to this one
The only thing, IMO, that indicates that Ridley has a chance are the trophies unveiled in April's Direct. They were trophies from Fire Emblem, Metroid and Kid Icarus. The only knew comer left out of those 3 would come from Metroid. Again, this may not even be an actual thing, but they've followed this pattern thus far.
Fuck off furfag
Ridley's last apparition was two years ago in nitnedoland, his franhise apparition was in 2010 in other M
Krystal hasn't made an appearance since 2005. Fuck off
>no other characters that really stand out (including the Hunters).
You and I both know that's untrue. The Hunters could use all of the Alt weapons from their game. We could even get Anthony Higgs for fuck sake.
Even if you want to argue that Metroid is more about the environments than the characters, we don't even get good stages. We get generic laval levels, yet they aren't any REAL locations like Magmoor Caverns, they're just stock scifi caverns. So in the area that Metroid "should" be repped in it gets fuck all.
There's no excuse for ANY of this anymore. Sakurai just doesn't want to do it for whatever reason.
Ridleyfags are awful people who shitposts in every single Smash thread. They scream and bitches when newcomers are not Ridley. They never argue reasonably. You should know by now if you're not a Ridleyfag.
It also says they would reveal the roster the 12th
That's my birthday guys, my most wanted newcomers are ridley and Lip, and my main Lucas.
___Liphas low chance but I still hold in my hopes.
Didn't Sakurai say that he wasn't going to reveal the full roster before the game was out because he didnt like that everyone who all the secret characters before the game was even released?
Fuck man, I understand in real fightan its important to have all characters available at the start nowadays, but Smash always had the charm of hidden characters with sometimes outrageous requirements to unlock
fuck you SBE for making it a simple playthrough. This fucking blows.
I feel like that Mach Rider still has a chance, however small it is.
I think that Sakurai would have shown his trophy or something at this point if he wasn't playable. He was a trophy in Melee and a sticker in Brawl.
I'm not going to say that Mach Rider is finally playable, but I'm going to hope for it.
Not the full roster, idiots. This publication said the same thing with Brawl, and they just listed the fighters that already showed up on the Dojo.
Of course, but to me it would be more exciting. The rush of a fighting a newcomer and defeating them, and the excitement that came afterwards when you couldn't wait to try them out.
I want to feel that again.
>dead and gone tier
Why does it hurt so bad ;_;
I highly doubt it, I nothing against/ to disprove it though.
Robin has completely killed his chances by filling the spellsword niche.
Already an assist trophy.
Generic mob already in the game via Smash Run, wouldn't do a reskinned version as a playable character. Not gonna happen.
he's not coming back ;_;
>Ness, if he's buffed so he's actually useful unlike Brawl above Palutena
You're right. And Sylux would be a really good addition to the roster. In fact, I'd say that Sylux would be a better addition than Ridley.
It's just that given the history of the series, it kinda makes sense to prioritize Ridley's inclusion.
>Even if you want to argue that Metroid is more about the environments than the characters, we don't even get good stages.
I'm still pissed off that they never bothered fixing this. Zebes, Brinstar and Norfair looked very generic. Aside from the stage-flipping, Frigate Orpheon also looked boring.
maybe geno will be a thing? I dunno..
>Lucas he's not coming back ;_;
DONT YOU DARE TO GIVE UP HOPE
GAMATSU IS DEAD
BASED ROBIN BANISHED HIM AND CHROM
THAT MEANS ALL THE BULLSHIT HE SAY ABOUT LUCAS IS FAKE
IF LUCINA COULD MAKE IT IN AND SHES A CLONE LUCAS ASWELL CAN
>implying he wouldn't be a better ED rep than generic blond girl
Why does he need deconfirming?
There's going to be hundreds of trophies of unplayable characters, why single out Mach Rider? Just because you want him? You could say that about literally any character.
Sakurai never gave a fuck about Metroid. It's likely that he has always felt that Metroid is overrated and a generic sci-fi franchise. Hell, he was probably pressured into adding Samus to 64 instead of someone he wanted instead.
Smash Bros has never been kind to the Metroid franchise, which makes sense, considering how much Japan despises Metroid.
Lucina's relevant, from a million seller, and extremely popular.
Lucas is irrelevant, from a game that did okay, and not terribly popular.
If Mewtwo got replaced despite how popular he was, I have no hope for Lucas.
The people we can assume to be in are the people that returned from Smash 64, and the people that returned from Melee.
Not yet confirmed that returned from Smash 64:
Not yet confirmed that returned from Melee:
Mr. Game & Watch.
As for returning from Brawl, the only one I can say with certainty is Wario.
So altogether, that's 7.
Right now the roster count is at 36.
38 if you count Mii Fighter as three characters.
So 36 + 7 = 43.
and 38 + 7 = 45.
So if you don't have any more newcomers or veterens, the final number would be 43.
So I am guessing the final roster will be somewhere between 50 and 55.
Tell me, relevancy does matter in smash?
If it is so, ness would be dropped in melee but he didn't, there' also jigglypuff and diddycon wich made it after being abscent in a real DK game since the 64 one
Stop being an un-optimistic faggot if you are going to post my lucas images
If we get another Star Fox rep it'll be either her or Slippy.
>Wolf not coming back
If Meleefags didn't like Falco so much he would have been kicked out already.
Wolf was always meant to be the 2nd rep and he's much less of a clone than Falco.
>smash will never have a skeleton rep
>people honestly think ROB might not return
They wouldn't throw an original moveset out the window, unless they did some lucario bullshit like they did to mewtwo. Even if they did, who would they replace ROB with?
Relevancy is bigger than just their own series. If they are relevant to Smash itself then they can stay. As well as Ness, Captain Falcon is probably a good example. Hell, Fox and Falco as well. Wolf doesn't seem very popular though so he could go.
THEY DID THE SAME THING WITH BRAWL
IT WAS ONLY ALL CONFIRMED CHARACTERS ALREADY FOR THOSE WHO DON'T USE SMASH.COM
THEY DID THE SAME THING WITH BRAWL
IT WAS ONLY ALL CONFIRMED CHARACTERS ALREADY FOR THOSE WHO DON'T USE SMASH.COM
There is nothing to be hype about. Nothing.
Brawler Mii Fighter
It's not that simple. Lucas has worn out his usefulness and his franchise is already appropriately represented, some of the ones you listed are in the same boat. Yeah I know.
But it's time to face the facts. Mother 3 has no business being a priority, we should be happy that Ness is even in, most of the reason being is because he's an Original Vet I'm sure.
We'll know which of the confirmed we'll have to unlock. I don't think we'll get the 36 characters they showed right off the bat. At the very least the 3rd party characters are going to be unlockable.
I dread that they will reveal all the characters.
The brawl leaks killed brawl for me
I like not knowing who I'm gonna unlock.
I wish japan wasn't getting this game in september
Everything is going to be spoiled.
I hope Ridley gets in just for the fact that 3-4 years from now, Ridley haters will have moved on, but Ridley fans will still be happy.
It's a more positive outcome this way.
Plus we won't have to go through all this ridley shit again for the next smash.
In order to be spoiled, you'd need to willingly go on sites like 4chan that will no doubt have spoilers. The info isn't beamed into your brain the second it becomes available to the masses
You have nobody to blame but yourself
I'm going to guess it's just going to be on the revealed characters so far, or the starting roster. I could be wrong though, and they could be announcing the full roster, but I wouldn't take it as fact just yet. Has anyone looked over the issue and seen if the translation could be taken different ways because "lol Japanese"?
What happened to the no more clones thing?
With Ness and Lucas they at least are distinct enough that you could tell them apart but Marth and Lucina are incredibly similar, hell she is meant to be dressed like him
Wario is gonna return
They are just taking forever because they gave him a complete move overhaul, like Project M did.
Nobody likes WarioWare Wario. It's not why he's famous or a good character.
Why can't they make it in?
Falco survived both melee and brawl and Lucas is near it's more unique than the newest clone : LUCINA
>Lucas and Falco are only different because of their special smashes
All Lucas A attacks are fucking different than ness
>They'll be merged with their counterparts because of the moveset customization.
Then why not lucina? She has the fucking neutral, up and down B that marth has
Stop being retarded
I hate when people see Wario and think he's just from WarioWare now.
If fucking Lucina is in, Falco and Lucas are pretty much guaranteed.
Plus considering that you can't use moveset customization online - they wouldn't relegate other characters to just be customizations.
Lucas's side smash is the same but as far as I know other than that yeah, you're right. And I'm pretty sure Lucina had some attacks I didn't recognise (maybe I just need to git gud, but what I assume was her neutral As were fast as fuck whereas Marth is weirdly slow).
Yeah, every trailer has characters like that
Chrom - Final Smash
Dark Pit - Alt costume/ Assist trohpy/ Stage Hazard
Various Pokemon - Pokeballs
Animals - Final Smash / Background characters
>Yellow Devil - Stage Hazard
>Rosalina - Stage Hazard
>All the Ridley and Anti-Ridley bitching.
You know either way, the people who stayed out of this little 'war' are fucked.
>Ridley is in and playable.
>Ridleyfags make thread after thread gloating.
>Ridley is deconfirmed.
>AntiRidleyfags make thread after thread gloating.
Please, think of us who just want to discuss video games. Even the shitposters. I'm begging you.
It's a shame the Ice Climbers were cut because the 3ds couldn't handle 8 of them on screen at once will maintaining 60fps
>people on /v/ admiting their errors and apologizing for insults
There aren't ridley fags and anti-ridley fags it is just the same people shit posting. It's like the 50+ threads yesterday going BTFO, no one was that mad. Some were a bit disappointed, some were pretty happy and in the middle a load of shit posting. It was idiots trying to annoy each other none realising both sides are making shit up
I hope Lucus and Ness return. I love those little guys.
I didn't say anything about wanting
But if you honestly think Wario isn't coming back, please stop posting and kill yourself
Am I the only one really bothered by this crap?
YOUR SHITTY 3RDGEN POKEMAN ISN'T COMING
I am still holding onto my hope for Belmont. I won't be surprised if he doesn't, but I still want it.
Or maybe a Castlevania related trophy. The Rayman one gave me slightly more hope of something.
I'm glad he's back. All you Falcon fans worried for nothing.
>ACTUAL FUCKING VIDYA JOURNALISM SITES ARE TRUSTING IT
>WHEN THOSE FUCKERS ONLY SHOWED THE REVEALED CHARACTERS IN BRAWL BACK THEN
>Smash bros is a celebration of nintendo's history
Unless a franchise is in a period between retro and relevancy, like nearly all of their niche IPs. In that case, it shafts them.
Ice Climbers are probably getting cut; Zelda/Sheik & Samus/Zero Suit got split up because the 3DS is couldn't handle the transformations, so I doubt it could handle how the Ice Climbers work. There shouldn't even be a fucking 3DS version, Smash should be a console only game.
>No Muddy Mole.
>No Kid Goku from Famicom Japanese Fairytales
>No Donbe and Hikari
>No ANYONE WHO WAS EVER ON A NINTENDO SYSTEM LIKE MASTER HIGGINS OR BANJO
Well fuck that fat fuck Mario. He only want all of the credits for himself because he is fat and greedy. I say "Perfect job!" to Wario and Donkey Kong for releasing themselves from Mario's fat hungering fingers and flipping him one by getting their own video games. They don't need him to hog the spotlight from them.
Also, Wario has always been better than Mario in every aspect. This is an undeniable fact.
No, normies would use cheap reversals of insults or anything that basically amounts to "no u", will cry about being insulted and ask why/get defensive, or will use cheap insults back with no argument (at all).
I'd love a obscure character like that getting in. The only out of left field character we have gotten is WFT and that was more "oh, okay. I guess she could be cool" that what the fuck
>mfw Lucas isn't coming back
>mfw Rosalina replaced Ice Climbers
>mfw Pac man replaced Game and Watch
>mfw Ganon is still being confirmed
Those two situations aren't even remotely similar, and not being able to handle transformations is nonsensical in itself. They were split for the same reason PM split them: there's no strategic benefit to being able to transform.
>each, Luigi, Yoshi, Wario and DK have all gotten their own games
>Mario has wronged all of them someway or another.
>Bowser still hasn't gotten his own game
>He likes the abuse.
>there's no strategic benefit to being able to transform.
You are in a bad match up, situation the other could deal better with or change up your style to mess with the opponent who has just got use to one
>>Zelda/Sheik & Samus/Zero Suit got split up because the 3DS is couldn't handle the transformations, so I doubt it could handle how the Ice Climbers work.
What the hell are you talking about? What you said doesn't even make sense.
>mfw this will none of this will never happen
>mfw waluigi didn't made it to smash and rosalina did
A lot of people do. He's actually really good. I don't get why so many people think he's a joke character. Just as legitimate as Kirby or Luigi
There is 39 characters in Brawl, which we have unconfirmed 14 and maybe 2 or 3 wont come back and add the small possibility of a Melee veteran returning which is almost none, we have 11 newcomers or 13 with the Mii dudes, and in every game we have more newcomers than the last, in original we had 12, Melee had 14, Brawl had 18, so this game may have at least 19 or more.
The roster may be a little bigger, maybe like 57 considering 25 anounced veterans with the new 13 plus at least 11 veterans returning and the around 8 newcomers not anounced.
I am kinda optimist about this game.
Please use pic related next time, your pic makes my eyes bleed
Honestly I love how the roster is shaping up.
Looks to be a lot more varied of a cast if nothing else. I wouldn't have been annoyed about Wolf and Falco in Brawl if they'd played substantially different than Fox did.
>tfw Chrom was going to be your main, Lucas was your main in brawl
>Full Super Smash Bros. roster to be revealed next month.
I don't believe it.
>likely doesn't come with the hidden characters
Sounds more believable. Chances are, all they're revealing is a newcomer. There's something happening but it's nothing amazing. It's just purchase bait.
I am worried that if they don't show unlockable characters /v/ will jump to conclusions and declare that to be the final roster.
And there will be threads all over the catalog like "No Mewtwo kek" and "Ridleyfags BTFO".
>tfw you anted Robin but thought he would never get in thanks to the gaymatsu link and you mained lucas in brawl
The trailer is going to be a fight of the heroes vs. Bowser, and then he calls for help and Wario, Wolf, Mewtwo, probabilly Meta Knight or D3 and
King K. Roolare going to fight with them. Maybe add other Villian that is not Ridley, of course, because he is a stage hazard.
>tfw Tails will never be in Smash
Don't you want a sidekick fight or a Mario and Luigi vs Sonic and Tails fight?
They're saving the biggest and best for last.
>mfw everything except Lucas possibly is wrong
>mfw Waluigi will NEVER EVER be in Smash
I'd be fine with no sonic and only Tails
I don't even like Sonic.
Sakurai agrees with you.
The problem is going to be the internet.
I really wish this game was getting a worldwide release.
Why the fuck is japan getting it a month before everyone else? Sakurai bitched about people spoiling the SSE with youtube, and then he goes and does this.
Everyone who isn't Japan is going to have the game spoiled for them if they even look at the internet for that month.
why do you even give a fuck?
It's a fighting game where the biggest draw is who's on the roster, not some kind of life altering story with plot details that would just kill it if you knew the ending.
Jesus you people are autistic.
>Lucas isn't coming back
>Rosalina replaced Ice Climbers
I doubt it, they've been in since Melee.
>Pac man replaced Game and Watch
I doubt it, they've clearly got his model and shit and there's no real reason they couldn't put him in.
>Ganon is still being confirmed
There are people who think he'll get cut? Nah man, Ganon is Sakurai's main. He'll be back in and he'll still be a Falcon clone.
-Zero Suit Samus
That's fine, the problem is that they have to go online and tel everyone
and then those people tell more people, ect until everyone knows who is in the game a month before buying it.
And ten they still have to go through the trouble of unlocking them.
I just can't shake it that there is no story mode.
That's the wrong Metroid Other M character.
Anthony Higgs is this guy.
Why bother giving G&W a new design if he isn't in?
Yet Zero Suit Samus and Charizard got their zoom in and stupid pun. I understand why Charizard but not Samus.. probably because of the significant changes on her.
He has more games on Nintendo consoles though including his most recent one.
Plus, fuck PSABR, I hated that game. Don't waste him like that.
Doesn't mean he's returning for 2
Also, the reason is that they'd get to use Smash Bros (one of the most hyped series ever) to hype their brand in exchange for avoiding a game that really, most people don't even want.
That's a pretty good deal for them.
If I was namco I'd abandon PSA2 in exchange for Nintendo privileges.
We've been arguing about this for 7 years, it's not happening.
I'd only main her if she was a viable character.
>actually wants Subspace Emissary back
Oh please. If you want high-budget fanfiction go play Kingdom Hearts.
For the love of god, that picture meant fuck-all. Dark Pit and Mewtwo figures were in it too. All it was was Sakurai goofing off with recently-released figures of various Nintendo characters. Come to think of it, didn't he stop tweeting so much in the first place due to autists trying to dissect his every tweet for Smash roster info?
SE was a great concept poorly executed, and it sucks that just because they failed the first time that we're (apparently) not getting a new one.
All they needed to do was expand on the Melee adventure mode. Run through Nintendo world, fight Nintendo enemies and bosses, keep things simple and fun.
But Sakurai had to make it desaturated, boring and full of original characters for some reason...
The thing proposed for the 3DS version sounds pretty cool, (I forgot the name but you run around an adventure world and collect stickers before having a more conventional fight with sticker bonuses), hopefully there will be something like that for the Wii U version, like what >>253330735 said.
Seeing as PSA2 has never t even been officially announced, Nintendo would be retards to try and make contracts around an unknown quantity that only their competitor has control of.
I'd play it. I already mained ZSS in Brawl so I guess I can cheese the game again with another blue bitch.
Mr Game and Watch
All these characters are super relevant in 2014 right? All those F Zero games and star fox games that have been coming out, all the kids are playing Gyromite and Oil Panic, Ice Climber and Earthbound are still being sold new on store shelves, and Marth's games were released in america as something more than shitty remakes, right?
2014 is a good year so far
it makes me sad that Wolf is one of the only really balanced characters in Brawl with actual advantages, drawbacks, and interesting unique moves...
And he is considered a piece of shit and no one will play him because balanced = shit in an unbalanced game.
I have low hopes for his return too and it makes me sad. He and Lucas were some of the most well-designed and balanced characters in the series, but balance means shit when everyone else is either OP or objectively shit
Lucas is barely a "clone"
if they didnt look similar and Lucas's PK Fire and Thunder were renamed to like... Fire Blast and Shock wave, people would have no issues telling the characters apart. They are seriously nothing alike other than 3 moves sharing the same name but having different effects
everyone's saying this, but actually they didn't even reveal the starting roster.
sheik and olimar were revealed on the smash sate after the coro coro magazine.
all coro coro did last time was show everything that was already on the smash site.
We've got Fox, we've had Falco regularly in the past, and we got Wolf the last go-around.
It's not a matter of whether we're getting someone from Starfox or not, it's just a question of who.
I don't think we're getting a new Star Fox rep.
When Brawl came out, Star Fox Command had just released and Star Fox Assault had come out less than three years prior.
There's been zero Star Fox games between Brawl and Kerfluffle, and every newcomer that's part of an existing franchise so far has been from newer installments of that franchise; Rosalina was in Galaxy and 3D World, Robin and Lucina were in FE:A, etc.
Do furfags even like Krystal? Most male furfags are gay, most female furfags are straight, and Krystal has a lot more human features than most of the furry shit that gets posted.
Krystal has lots of mainstream popularity because she's a qt gril that was designed to be attractive. Actual furries do not have that much interest in her, because most of them are gay anyway.
Multiple newcomers and vets have been announced along with the announcement or release of new entries into their franchises. There was a new Star Fox announced at E3, so it wouldn't be too far off.
I'd still guess that we only get Falco, but having 4 FE reps really blows the whole roster open.
Most normalfags think she's attractive to an extent because she was made out that way. Look at the way she was advertised and you'd see it.
Hardcore furfaggots don't care for popular characters
Furfag is a derrogatory nickname for members of the furry community, so no. The term that would be commonly used to describe Krystal is "furbait," which can either mean that she is bait intended to make men feel attracted to a furry character, or it could mean she is meant to draw in furfags.
Harcore furfages are more interested in their shitty rainbowtron OCs than anything else. The amount of art that gets produced and commissioned for popular characters like Krystal and Carmelita is tiny compared to the amount for OCs.
