Stat wise Lucario's pretty good though. Physical AND Special coverage and it gets Adaptability when he goes Mega.

Plus considering Gen 1 Pokeys are usually remembered first, it's good that someone rocks Charizard off his throne.

Nigga Lucario is huge over in Japan.

A character is only a Lightning if the character isn't all that popular with fans and they're just huge with the dev team.

To be a Lightning, all of the following must be true:

>Shoehorned into everything
>Not the main character of the game that introduced them
>Hated by fans or otherwise unpopular

This means that the only Lightnings posted in this thread are Lightning herself and Marie.

This also means that Rosalina is not a Lightning, as she's popular with fans. Anyone who's played Mario Kart 8 should know this.

He wasn't. He got where he is completely by accident.

Depends on the Devil Gene. If they didn't have it? Sure. Still, he is at his prime, even at the age of 70. He stopped a bullet with his teeth in Tekken 6.

Lucario is a perfectly designed pokemon.

He is gender neutral at first glance, so that keeps him open for both girls and boys to like him.

BTAS shipped Harley and Ivy together a lot. Harley/Ivy episodes would basically be moments where Harley snaps to her senses and realizes she's in a horrible abusive relationship with a sociopath that doesn't care about her. Heartbroken, Harley runs to Ivy who tells her about how she don't need no man and then Harley runs off back to Joker and the status quo is upheld.

Do you not remember the pokemania that followed R/B and Y initially releasing in the West? Everyone fell in love with him and he became the series mascot. Even today, the majority of fans like him. If a character is liked by the fanbase then they cannot by definition be a lightning.

It's a children's cartoon in the 90's, they can't be overt about the pairing. But Ivy does spend a lot of time trying to convince Harley that they should hang out a lot more than they do. It's pretty easy to read into that and more subtle clues like glances they give each other and see the two as being something like a lesbian couple (when they're together). Kind of like how people read lesbianism into Thelma and Louise. In any case there was enough of an implication there for it to be implied as a joke in a comic years later.

Old and busted. Not only is it's epcial attack lackluster and has been for a while, but it's most important niche as an offensive spinner (hazard remover) has been defunked by the buff to defog. Also the nerf to rain hurt it.

No you're just wrong, the gen 2 games were the best generations. After the 3rd generation it died off, pokemon really lost its charm. The legendaries stopped being so legendary, no back story. X and Y was the worst generation as it produced close to 20 bad pokemon.

Rosalina's not liked, she's only overused because she's a fat girl in a biker suit.

Same reason Daisy was used much more than Mario and Luigi.

The people who made BTAS said that while they did want it to be a kids show, they also wanted to make it the definitive version of comic book batman. They put as many adult themes as they were allowed (back in the 90s it was a lot easier, see animaniacs). So it seems probable that they were trying to pair ivy and harley.

That doesn't make Rosalina last minute when characters for 3D World aren't hard to construct at all, and they didn't even have to add another character since they already had the 4 necessary for multiplayer but they chose to do so anyways.

It doesn't even matter anyways since it's obvious to anyone who looks outside shitposting threads on /v/ where they can easily see she's well-liked.

Keyword: Was. She used to be well liked, but now she's basically polarizing.

Disagree, there was a time where they tipped him to be the next Cena but his ego got the better of him because he demanded everything on a stick. Then he walked and wrestling became shit because of it.

>Keyword: Was. She used to be well liked, but now she's basically polarizing.

Again, this is only the case on /v/. Go outside of /v/, anywhere else, and you'll still see she's well liked.

We had some MK8 tournament races at my university recently, and the vast majority of people playing used Rosalina, and pretty much everyone there (as well as the fandom at large, really) knows that the best weight class is the one with Morton, Bowser, and Wario, and that DK/Roy/Waluigi have the same stats as she does, so don't try arguing on weight class having a major effect.

The most polarizing parts of her came from her inclusion in Smash, which is largely due to Smash being a collection of faggots who want their characters in over others and getting mad when they see a character they didn't want or even know about getting in over someone they wanted. I'm seeing plenty of Dark Pit hate right now, but none of it is because of Dark Pit himself as most Uprising fans liked him. Rosalina is similar to that.

>Also, her 3DWorld model is the same as Peach's.

Doesn't really mean much. Mario and Luigi often have ingame models which are the same too.

They put more effort into modeling the dresses than they do the actual bodies in any case, since the bodies underneath the models only show black voids with some legs sticking out.

Rosalina's used much more than the rest because she's a girl in a biker suit. That's the only difference.

No one is surprised by this. You see more Peaches and Daisies in MK8 than Mario and Luigi for the exact same reason.
>>
>>260423024
Gotta call bullshit on that. You know about that Dorkly poll thing with Nintendo characters? Rosalina ranks higher than Wario and Peach on that shit,, and she ranks pretty high in general.

It's true, though. No one really cares enough about Rosalina beyond the kids that grew up with Wii.

And the ones that are older than that only use her because she's the only girl in the heavy class. And heavy was made stupidly broken in MK8.

How would you even go about proving something like that? And even if that were true, why would that even matter?

Regardless, I'm pretty sure I've seen gaming press people praise Rosalina.

>And the ones that are older than that only use her because she's the only girl in the heavy class. And heavy was made stupidly broken in MK8.

Or maybe they just like her. Heavy definitely isn't as broken in MK8 as Funky was in MKW seeing as Funky dominated races and online in general for that game. At least in MK8 I still see lower weightclass characters scoring well.

>>
>>260425076
No. Lightning was used as much as she was because Squeenix fucked up completely on Final Fantasy XIV. They didn't want to leave that game as the blunder it was, so they halted progression of the FF series overall (hence why XV is taking so long, and why XIII Versus was retooled into FFXV) until they fixed XIV, which was relatively recent. Now, between the release of FFXIII and when XIV would eventually be fixed, what was Squeenix gonna do? They couldn't just leave FF as a whole alone while waiting for XIV to be fixed (in their minds, of course), so they looked to the XIII games and realized they had a lot of assets which they could easily reuse for more games. This of course means more games with Lightning in them.

Other than that, there were FF spinoffs where Lightning would be featured alongside several other FF characters, like in Dissidia or Theatrhythm. Any emphasizing of Lighting herself was basically just cross-promotion to help with whatever FFXIII related game was coming out, like whatever that side thing with Lightning was in FFXIV, which was to help promote Lightning Returns, or some costumes that one of the Parasite Eve games had, which was because the same director for FFXIII had also worked on that game.

Also, everyone says that Toriyama has Lightning as his waifu. Last I checked, Toriyama is not the CEO of Square Enix. Current CEO is Yosuke Matsuda, who as far as I'm aware didn't have any special contribution to the FFXIII games.
>>
>>260426532
>No, Blaze is where she is because of her popularity.
You do realize that's pretty much every character that gets called Lightning, right? Lucario, Rosalina, and hell, the others on that list too are all popular (you're shitting me if you're trying to say that Master Chief, Cynthia, Big Boss, and the like all aren't popular).

>What?
I think they're trying to say that she's Platinum's Lightning because she appeared in Anarchy Reigns and Wonderful 101 or something.

>Also, are you niggers SERIOUSLY trying to create a strict definition for a shitposting term?
/v/ is shit, what else is new?
>>
>>260427061
Well yeah, I kind of agree with you. The characters are viewed well by their respective fandoms...it's not an "eh" feeling or general dislike.

Rosalina and Lightning are "Lightnings" probably because they appear in a whole lot and no one is really asking for them to keep coming back. (But judging by how many Rosalinas on bikes I see on MK8, this is probably not even true.)

So you know what? There's no reason debating this, it's just a shitposting term. Highly subjective and useless as well.
>>
People keep saying that Lucario is well liked, but who the fuck likes it aside from dumbass kids? The design is absolutely awful with horrible proportions and fucking chest and hand spikes for no reason. How the hell can anyone above the age of ten have such shit taste that they like Lucario?

>>260408334

I got the figure, was my first into the slippery slope however so I can't really go into depth. As far as mine goes, the spikes look a bit rough in quality and one of the joints in the hands doesn't seem to like moving inwards. Otherwise, as far as figures go I like it. Mega Lucario is probably the next best opportunity in the short term.

There are so many joints in the legs, so this nigga is actually quite hard to keep straight, some have managed to get him upright without relying on the base/stand or tail but it's not easy.

>Rosalina and Lightning are "Lightnings" probably because they appear in a whole lot and no one is really asking for them to keep coming back. (But judging by how many Rosalinas on bikes I see on MK8, this is probably not even true.)

Rosalina really is pretty far from a "Lightning". The only time people really questioned her appearances were 3D World and Smash, the former was because Nintendo was antsy about using her in general prior (and they explained that popularity was actually one of the reasons for why they brought her back). Smash was just people thinking they get how Sakurai thinks and being mad when they're wrong.

On pretty much every other site I visit, she dominates the favorite character polls for Mario games. Hell, she even dominates some of the polls I've seen on the MK8 threads here.

It's design comes from Egyptians and old boxing styles (something about spiked gloves for boxing in old times, I don't really remember the specifics). The design makes sense for the most part and, at least during the gen 4 era, it was pretty fun to use in the game.

And Pokemon largely appeals to kids so even if you think the kids have shit taste, it doesn't matter because they're the primary demographic and they like Lucario.

Oh, and I forgot to add, but Rosalina doesn't even actually appear all that much.

She appears in 3 3D Mario games (first one being her debut, obviously), all of the Mario Karts since Wii, a cameo in the 3DS Party game, DLC for Mario Golf, and Smash.

That's it. That's less "forced" than every Mario character bar Pauline and the Koopalings.

It was actually one of the first Gen IV Pokemon showed off (Alongside Munchlax I think). I don't know if they focus groups for this shit, they figured they could make lightning strike twice after Blaziken or they just got lucky by choosing him to show off first.

Seriously it's like if Mr Mime became the poster boy for Pokemon, it just confuses me.

The rest I can sorta understand, but why Kratos?
He's sort of the main character, and the games always state what a miserly fuck-up he is

Literally no one likes her. And her anime look is retarded. At least Yuri can pull it off without looking like a moeblob

It was one of the first alongside Munchlax, Weavile, and Bonsly.

Lucario managed to stick well with the fans and they tried to do the same thing again with Zoroark for gen 5 but it didn't work.

>He's sort of the main character

So are Master Chief, Ryu, Bayonetta, Big Boss, Ezio, and some of the others on there. It's not meant to make sense, it's a meme.

Yeah but the others all at least put those characters up on a pedestal.

What does that have to do with being a Lightning? The whole point of it with that image is "character who is used a lot" by some company. That's the only remotely consistent thing about it.

And that's wrong considering Big Boss is a pretty big fuck up.
