What would be the bigger shitstorm? If Ridley was playable in Kerfuffle or if he wasn't?
Nice refutation of the points I raised. I know >too big is a popular shitpost, but it's fucking true. They COULD put him in the game, and make him as big as Dedede or Bowser, but even that would diminish what makes Ridley cool.
If he wasn't, it would be shrug off with dissapointment and some BTFO threads that barely last a week.
If he was all hell breaks loose.
Definitely if he was, because there would probably be an announcement for that. Ridleyfags will probably have a fivethread going.
Don't get me wrong--once we know for sure Ridley is out it's going to be mad bully--but we'll be distracted by the fact that we're playing Smash Bros.
>those autists that "examined" the tease of him on the direct and concluded "t-there's no way a non-playable character could have moved like that"
>people bring up clear evidence depicting Ridley in Smash 4 as being smaller than ever before
>AUTISM ALERT AUTISM ALERT SHUT IT DOWN
I want him in only for the mass meltdown /v/ will have
Not that guy, but the ridley fags aren't much of a force, they're mostly the same guys replying to bait in every thread.
Chrom fags and Captain Falcon fags outnumber ridley fags and it pretty much got contained, same for Snake in brawl.
Now, if he doesn't get announced we will get ridley fags crying and people trolling ridley fags.
>in less than a quarter of the games
>is barely mentioned, if at all, in every other game
>no real relation to Samus
>in all but three games
>very prominent in all of them
>extremely strong ties with Samus
Let me guess, you've only played Super Metroid, right?
on 4chin I'm sure the shitstorm would be the same whether he's in or not.
irl I'm sure no one would care. my friends had no idea samus was a girl until zero suit in brawl and I'm sure they're indifference about ridley.
I think Metroid is a pretty cool guy.
Well the shadow shows he's not too big and I doubt those who want him playable care if he's tweaked. Like how every other character is.
We better get some info on his status this month. I want him on the roster but it's been a year since Pyrosphere reveal and four months since the shadow. It's getting ridiculous how we've seen every other goddamn thing shown during the direct talked about in potd except Ridley.
Why are people so eager to take Sakurai at face value over a tiny shadow of Ridley and an implication? Did these people assume Palutena was only a statue on her stage looking over the combatants as the pic of the day stated she was and not playable? They Link wasn't going to be on the roster? That Ness was cut for Brawl?
>Sakurai shows the Pyrosphere one last time during the PotD
>it's just the damaging lava going up like the previous Metroid stages
>Sakurai mentions he's revealing another newcomer by August 16th
THE FIRE RISES
>All this samefag.
>Retarded Animu laughter.
Oh my god this is a fucking new kind of cancer i've never seen before.
Only one of those is animu laughter.
>tfw just came in to the thread
>no space pirates fun allowed
If people want Ridley to not be in for this reason, it's stupid. There will always be the too big. Always something v or the internet clings to to try and ruin peoples hopes over. Who gives a shit? They'll just move on to the next "big" thing.
Ridley is deconfirmed
>I FUCKING TOLD YOU
>WHERE WERE YOU WHEN RIDLEY WAS TOO BIG
Ridley is confirmed
>OTHER BOSS CHARACTERS MAKE APPEARANCES
AS PLAYABLE CHARACTERS
>NOT BIG ENOUGH TO BE BTFO
>WHO'S DELUSIONAL NOW
If he was in it would be the bigger shitstorm is what I'm saying.
>mfw I don't Ridley in because all the shitposters posting this shit every minute of the day
Even if he was playable, I wouldn't care. You have taken any joy I might've had of the character being in. Thanks guys.
THIS, this is what you people have driven non ridley fags to.
I feel this may be similar to what actually happens if Ridley is playable. Time has come to a crawl ever since it became August. Just show us already, Sakurai! No shadow, just fucking show us!
MR. SAKURAI, I'M CIA, AND I'M HERE TO ASK A QUESTION.
IS THE PYROSPHERE JUST ONLY RISING LAVA?
>haruhifag can't handle the big banter
>Ridleyfags begin posting fucking laughter in response to any criticism or doubt.
I don't even have words for this shit, how could you become this fucking cancerious. I respected you at first but this is ridiculous.
>anti-Ridleyfags getting mad at laughing Space Pirates for having fun.
>Tumblrites getting mad at JonTron for being /pol/ on Gaystation4's PS Now service.
what a beautiful night to be on /v/.
The shitstorm will be bigger if Ridley isn't playable because anti-Ridleyfags will just gloat forever, but there will be a bigger asspocalypse if Ridley is playable because so many people are so sure he'll NEVER be in it.
Oh god if he gets an announcement video... PEOPLE WILL NEVER SHUT UP ABOUT IT.
It will be like 5 threads a day for a week or a month about it and then a "daily reminder that Ridley is in" thread at leas 5 times a week.
I really hope that if he is in, he is a secret character
I really want him playable but I've set myself up for him just being a boss cause I don't want burned again. Sucks since I used to love getting hyped for characters but with how he's handling Ridley I just don't know what to think.
Ridley was always based on 100% conjecture and wishful thinking. There has never, EVER been any evidence at all that suggests he'd be in a Smash game. So if he wasn't in this one, nobody would REALLY be surprised.
Thus, the larger shitstorm would be if he was actually confirmed. Because hundreds of delusional retards would suddenly have their fanon legitimized, and you know goddamn well they won't shut up about it for at least a year if it happens.
Can you blame them? 13 years of too big will obviously piss people off. I can understand why some would run with it. Me, I don't care. I may look at reactions on the net but I'd be too happy to shitpost.
If he's in I'll be supporting K. Rool bros and Isaac bros. I wager they're likely to be the next too bigs or never evers. They deserve their characters just as much.
It's cool, I laugh at people IRL when they are being fucking retarded too.
>ridley is announced
>he's an clunky, slow, shitty looking abortion
>barely does any damage and takes a shit load of damage
>all his moves are boring and uninspired
>clearly the worst character on the roster by far
Would the shitstorm backfire?
He's been handled completely differently than any other deconfirmed character though. It's easy to see why people would be hopeful. It's just most people take things at face value regardless of what type of person is saying it.
>never, EVER been any evidence at all that suggests he'd be in a Smash game.
rising lava are a traditional thing for metroid stages.
Pyrosphere involves tons of lava so this confirms Ridley most likely not a stage boss, but might be his intial stage.
also muh Trophy Quiz:
if a Zelda newcomer gets revealed during HW direct, it's happening.
If Project M was made to please autists then Mewtwo King would actually like it.
But he never had to be "deconfirmed" in the first place. The only reason anyone ever thought he would be in was some guy going "hey why does metroid only have one rep?" and shit snowballing from there. Anyone with any sense at all can see there's no way he'd ever be considered. At least not before the other humanoid characters in the series. I could see them putting one of the other hunters from the DS game in, or even that faggot soldier from Other M. Ridley just makes no sense.
>Say I respected you before you starting doing this shit.
>HUR DURR HE'S A HATER DO IT MOAR!
IT's like you want more people to hate you.
I don't care wether ridley gets in or not but this is fucking ridiculous.
if he does get in I'd love to wreck my shitbag friends with him.
>connection requirements: 56k modem
I... what? That's like saying a bunch of other humanoid pokemon would get in over Charizard. Ridley is the next most important character behind Samus and the Metroids, and Metroids are an assist.
I'm glad you people don't make Smash cause the roster would be boring as shit.
>being this mad
>still on euro /v/ during this precious night
No, Pichu was tied with Kirby for worst and the most recent tier list states Kirby is the worst.
Also, have you fucking seen kirby plays in tourney's? You can't do anything with kirby, he's fucking terrible.
> Expecting anyone to care about your "respect"
I literally don't care at all about any of this. I just find it funny to shitpost.
That's a lie I want Ridley in, sweet Jesus.
Nice Hellsing image, dats a good anime. Ultimate, not the original. The original sucked balls.
>he'd rather have ridley than Sylux, Trace, or Weavel
>he'd rather have a shitty "big guy" slow moveset than a guy with a sniper laser for an arm, a guy who can drop an electric snare to trap people, and a guy who can split in half turning his ass into a stationary turret
>flap 4 times
sakurai shouldn't be this limited to give ridley some moves.
geez, and Zamus, Rob, CDF, and Villager got some non-in game moves in Smash too
Shokio is a hypocrite. Whines about them not catering to fans for Smash to be more competitive, then mocks people because they supposedly didn't get playable Ridley. He's a dick.
>You want a series mainstay over a one shot character from a side game?
Yeah, crazy huh? You can really tell when people don't play much Metroid when they want one of the hunters in over Ridley.
ridley has no characterization. He just IS. He exists in every metroid game and people have come to accept it as fact, but he's just one of the many bosses you fight in each game. In the grand scheme he's no more important than fucking kraid, or mother brain, or that plant fuck from the beginning of Prime.
one of the other hunters would be vastly more interesting. They at least have a hint of backstory explaining their existence. And you know goddamn well that if any of them had a cameo in the next game, everyone would be shitting bricks in excitement and trying to figure out what it meant. If Ridley shows up again? "oh. it's ridley. that was entirely expected."
Hunters were from one game. Not important.
If you want to see how important Ridley is, read his Smash bros trophies. Since you don't know anything about Metroid, it may help.
It's good he does have character but
>characterization mattering in Smash
FE had 4 reps and Zelda had 5
Rildey and Weavel/Sylux can both get in with out a problem. Anthonyfags please go, Snake is getting and Rayman, Lucina and Ike prove it otherwise.
How about now?

Normally I wouldn't mind having ridley in smash, but his fanbase has got me to the point where I want that stupid purple faggot off smash, with all the stupid "IS HE IN? IS RIDLEY IN? HE'S IN RIGHT? TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT". Worst part is if ridley gets in or not, there will still be a huge shitstorm.
proved that more third-parties are still involved with the game.
a semi-clone and Villager use special moves similar to Snake.
further proved that characters from brawl and 64 (dunno about melee) are not getting cut and are coming back better than ever.
Snake and Lucas are not getting cut
now i'm going to sleep. PotD better be special, Mashpotato Suckyoureye
