What does it take to be playable in Smash?
>>
To not be from a dead handheld series whose last game was shit
>>
>>258239852
Nothing specific.
Whatever Sakurai thinks of and makes work.
It's less deserved and more of a privilege.
>>
>>258239852

Felix was a better main character.
>>
First Sakurai has to masturbate to the characters regulary for at least 3 weeks straight. THEN he has to picture said character going out on a date with Pit to see if there is chemistry involved. If the chemistry scores a 11.23 on the Richter scale then Sakurai gives the official order to start development.
>>
sakuarai's blessing
sakurai's approval
sakurai's love

the character has to inspire him with ideas of a fun and enjoyable moveset and look fun as an adition to the rest of the cast
>>
>>258239852
but OP, a better, more deserving RPG protag has already taken his place.
>>
Usually potential, variety, importance, and popularity.
So no Ashley. She's not any more important than all the other characters. Also no Skull Kid, he's only a villain in one game that came out a long time ago.

If he had to be, what move set would you even give him. Fucking quake as a DK bdown and catch as a grab is all that I can think of.

What about his assist trophy ability, Move... or like, any of the many psynergies in the game

Fuck.

But... Robin isn't called Robin in Japanese FE.

>>258248054
>all I can think of
There are tons of moves from GS, even from Isaac alone.
Psynergy, Djinn, summons, sword unleashes. Even if you just stick to earth moves there's still a bunch.

Little Mac showed us though that Sakurai was fine with bringing a fan favorite from the West though. Japs didn't even really care when he was announced.

And him tripling the female count isn't really a bad thing either.

Here's a pretty good moveset I've seen
It might be a little OP but the creator was able to make every single move use psynergy AND included pictures.

>>
>>258248964
Captain Falcon only got in because his moveset was a leftover from the original fighting game Sakurai and Iwata were making before Miyamoto suggested making it about nintendo characters

What if they put in his son, whose name I can't even remember?
>>
>>258239852

"What does a smasher truly need?"
>>
>>258248054
I could see him having Quake and some Venus Psynergy, or possibly having each element for B moves (if only so we can get a recovery via Jupiter Dijinn). Also Ragnarok for a Final Smash.
>>
>>258249864
Actually I kind of like his design more, and I assume they are identical in every other aspect anyway. Except for the fact that he comes from a shit ass game.

Djinn are absolutely crucial to the battle system of golden sun, without them you can't change class (meaning no stat increases or way to get more magic), can't use their buffs, and you can't use any summons.

Here's what it takes

>EARLY DEVELOPMENT STAGES
Bring a new mechanic to the table (Little Mac, Robin, Rosalina)
Be from a new/unrepresented series that's rose in popularity since the last game (Villager, Little-Mac, Mii)
Be a popular character within an already prominently established series (Rosalina, Greninja)
Come from completely out of the blue unexpectedly (Wii-Fit Trainer, new reto rep)
Be a third party with great legacy power

>LATE DEVELOPMENT STAGES
Easy to implement (Lucina)
Similar to an already established character (Lucina)
Come from a series that doesn't have many reps to begin with (Lucina)
Be a third party with great legacy power

My problem with her was that she's boring. She's a white human that does yoga. Of course then they revealed that she actually does have a gimmick, which I can't really criticize until I try for myself.

I still hate her final smash though. It's so boring and stupid. At least they could've made something crazy and stupid, like having her hop onto a flying wii fit board and ramming other players while doing crazy yoga.

I'd love ganondorf to get a new moveset. I can't believe that they gave him the same clone shit in brawl when he's supposed to be a major character.

I know they gave him that in melee because there was not enough time, but for brawl they should of fixed that shit.

He's a fucking sorcerer and he's got zero magic.

Honestly? Yeah. Punch out wasn't a game from my childhood, but I do think Lil Mac has more personality.

The thing is, I'm glad he's in because a lot of people wanted him in. WFT was more of a "nobody wanted but oh man, that porn."

I don't know. I'm sure there are a lot of people that like WFT because of the charm they managed to put into her moves and that intro movie. And it's not like my opinion is worth anything to begin with. And hey, she's not going out, so people might as well like her now.

Sakurai making the usual shitty decisions and playing favorites, instead of giving unrepresented series some recognition or any.
>>
>>258254984
Like Little Mac and Villager?
>>
In order to be a playable character, you must have something that can work in your game that can transition into Smash Bros. Unfortunately, this is where a lot of candidates are axed from the list. Sonic literally plays with only one button, and Mario and Luigi are perfect for the platforming aspect. In the case of Wario Sakurai took it literally and made his movements exact to his WarioWare appearance and the end result was shit. Now with Little Mac and Palutena, you have their movesets/styles based from their games, and it comes out properly.

Next, if Sakurai wants to add filler to the rosters, he'll look at some characters who share body types and clone them. Case in point Marth, Roy, Dr. Mario and Lucina. Some outlandish cases like Ganondorf also apply.

Lastly, his personal taste come into play and don't pretend it doesn't. If he doesn't see something as fit for Smash, it's not happening regardless of how good or interesting it may be. His personal bias alone plays a key in the roster.

tl;dr Sakurai adds what he wants with a hint of what the fans want.

Stop that.

>>258255542
Oh sure, I believe you. By nearing the end of newcomer trailers, that obviously meant that there was only one more.
>>
>>258239852
Most Smash characters are either a main playable protagonist, a recurring, important villain, or otherwise a central NPC whom the game's plot revolves around (such as Zelda or Palutena). Pokemon kind of break these rules, due to the nature of their series.

There has to be SOMETHING that can imply a recognizable moveset, even if it's a stretch like giving the goddess magic to Zelda, or giving generic ninja moves to Sheik (who they probably wouldn't have included if they weren't dedicated to Zelda having a transformation move.) Captain Falcon is an exception, his moveset was pre-existing from when the game was going to have entirely original characters and he was a convenient physical match for the model of the generic character he's a "clone" of.

They're usually either from a classic NES-era series, or a game that was released fairly recently before that iteration of Smash (or both, of course). If a character isn't an NES-era classic, and they haven't had a new game since Brawl came out, they likely missed their chance.

A Golden Sun rep is... questionable. In the lead-up to Brawl Sakurai mentioned that Pikmin was the only real viable new franchise for Smash Bros., kind of implicitly shit-talking Golden Sun's eligibility. That could be something he changes his mind on, like an Animal Crossing rep, but the new Golden Sun doesn't seem any more eligible than the first.

What makea you think Sakurai was forced to put her in?

To get into Smash you need:
A. Iconic Nintendo character
B. 3rd party with many games on a Nintendo system
C. Retro character that has caught Sakurai-sama's attention
D.Character from a company that is helping to develop the game.
E. Have a creator who is Sakaurai-sama's butt buddy

Y'know what would make him different to the othert swordsmen?
Having his B moves become Monado Arts when a gauge is filled with A attacks.

If you took a look at any of the dozens of possible movesets that people have made, you'd see Isaac would play nothing like Isaac.
For one, his main magic focus is earth, including things like plants and earthquakes, which robin doesn't use at all.
Secondly, you could go down the route of making Isaac a summoner fighter, where his moves revolve around summons and preparing to bring them out which no one on the roster does at all.
There's also the djinn which could be linked to "setting" moves first and then unleashing the djinn but also giving the opportunity to not use the djinn and get a stat bonus for keeping them set.

Isaacs moveset practically writes itself in many different ways, all of which could bring something very unique to smash.
