like 1 in 1000 people who play smash have played all the games in it. 1 in three know a thing about said games.
Ridley never says shit, he has no personality, why the fuck would they put him in
Agreed, Sakurai is a complete faggot for ignoring DK and Metroid. He's just assblasted cause he knows that he'll never make a game that's even half as good as Super Metroid, Prime 1 or Tropical Freeze.
I'd take all 3 of those games over Smash representation any day.
And yet, he'll never EVER be playable in a Smash game, EVER
How does that make you feel?
>He isn't as cool as Dedede, Bowser, or Ganondorf
This is an insanely shitty opinion and the fact that you mentioned DDD first means youre a humongous kirbyfag manchild.
>nor does he have any one-liners or memorable quotes
this is the most reddit reason for thinking a villain isn't cool.
>Ridley never says shit, he has no personality, why the fuck would they put him in
Since when does the ability to talk or having a personality the standard to get into smash bros?
Oh that's right, never. Because if that was the case, we'd have to get rid of half the roster.
Link's one of the most famous Nintendo characters ever, he displays personality through actions and behaviours, and he's the main character of a series well over 25 years old. Compared to big purple boss dragon, that's a lot.
Ridley's the 2nd most famous Metroid characters ever, he displays personality through actions and behaviours, and he's a main character of a series over 25 years old. Compared to little elf man, that's a lot.
>Masahiro Sakurai himself has commented on the popularity of Ridley as a playable character. In an interview with the gaming magazine Nintendo Power, Sakurai said the following on Brawl's finalised roster:
>Nintendo Power: There was a rumor at one point about Ridley being playable. Was that ever a consideration?
>Sakurai: I think that would probably be pretty impossible. [Laughs] If we had put our best efforts into it, we may have been able to do it. But he might have been a little slow. Would that be all right? [Laughs]
>Roster's been known for weeks
>People still talking about Ridley
>A blue penguin king who governs a land of candy and magic is badass
>a ruthless flying alien dragon pining for universal destruction and murders for fun isn't badass
I think you need to reevaluate your definition of "badass"
>There is no reason not to put Ridley in
There is no reason to not put alot of characters in
There is also no reason to remove ice climbers
Just accept it faggot
I already accepted it
Of course it does, you stupid nigger, it's the fucking Brawl model scale down way too small. Do you retards honestly think if Ridley was made playable they'd just copy and paste this model and shrink his ass?
>believing anything Sakurai ever says
sakurai lies more than kevin smith you fucking newfag
most winged characters aren't mostly wing though
So what's the consensus on that whole "link your 3DS to the Wii U for bonus characters" thing that's been going around?
I think if anybody at Nintendo had a brain in their skulls they'd do it but I'm not getting my hopes up.
How many times do we have to go around the block with you ridleyfags?
This has to be one of the most repetitive topics on the board.
>There is also no reason to remove ice climbers
It was because the 3DS version couldn't handle the two of them being on screen at once or Nana having A.I. that's smarter than an Assist Trophy, which I can believe since they were already having so much trouble with 5 characters on screen that they had to half the frame rates of Pokeballs and Assist Trophies
if they couldnt put ice climbers on there how do you think they could fit ridley on there?
Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is the first Smash game to not show Ridley anywhere.
I wonder why that is... ;)
samus and her sister zero suit samus are the 2 most popular, followed by their rival dark samus. Then there's the metroid blob and the space pirates themselves.
Ridley isn't that well known.
>no Ridley trophy on 3DS
>still no pyrosphere footage
>3DS can't handle IC, surely can't handle Chorus Kids
>no new DK content
>no news on any Wii U features
>that Wii U button on the 3DS version's main menu
He also said Namco being involved wouldnt secure Pac Man as a playable character.
He also said there were gonna be no more clones.
He also said the reason that they excluded Chrom is because they didn't want another character to be similar to Marth.
He also said any character who has too many similarities to another character will be nothing more than a pallette swap.
Should I keep going?
Ridley uses his tail in combat much more than Charizard. He can also have a special flying mechanic where he constantly levitates above the ground and can grab players in the air for a limited amount of time. He can also use fireballs instead of a flamethrower like Charizard and Bowser.
If they can make 10+ sword characters different enough to justify being playable they can sure as fuck make two dragon-like characters different enough.
And he's not in
And Waluigifags accept it
>"Giant characters can't be in fighting games"
I guess I shouldn't expect Smash fans to know anything about other games, but this whole argument is wrong.
>using Dog Hunt Dog to argue about Ridley not being in
Hurtboxes and hitboxes aren't the same thing.
I don't give a shit about either one. I just think it's hilarious that Duck Hunt Dog made it in while we have threads every goddamn day with people whining about Ridley, who probably comes off as a more feasible inclusion.
Considering how tall Bowser and Dedede are in Smash, it wouldn't be out of character to make Ridley slightly taller.
>mfw Bowser standing upright already made him significantly taller than Samus
So they have the skills to make a moveset for charizard, the imagination to make one for DHD, but Ridley is absolutely impossible?
Youre the one whos retarded for believing the shit sakurai slings.
he flies 90% of the fucking time. a flying character would be shit and if he was just on the ground but had several jumps (like metaknight), he would play anything like Ridley actually does in metroid.
I'm so fucking embarrassed for Metroid fans. As someone who enjoyed the Prime games and would have definitely liked to play the others, I have to say that this whole Ridley conniption fit you guys have been throwing for months now is exactly why no one takes the series seriously.
Gee, maybe it's because I'm not the same guy.
ALL large characters have big hitboxes. Being easy to hit is balanced by the fact that larger characters are heavy and thus harder to KO. :)
You're retarded for thinking he's in after he was deconfirmed in the spring and deconfirmed again after the game came out in Japan.
>b-but it was just a shadow
It was Ridley and you knew it.
>As someone who enjoyed the Prime games
The Prime series gets worse by the installment, kill yourself
>and would have definitely liked to play the others
>I have to say that this whole Ridley conniption fit you guys have been throwing for months now is exactly why no one takes the series seriously.
Yup, a vocal fanbase asking for a 25 year old character to be in a monumental Nintendo game ruined the franchise. Other M, Prime Hunters and Fusion had nothing to do with it.
Funny thing is a Ridley-like character is a game made by Namco just before Smash.
Are you aware Bowser Jr. is in the game? Retard.
u wot m8? Charizard is one of the heaviest characters yet he has more than two jumps and he could glide in Brawl. His hitboxes wouldn't be as bad as you think if he's around Bowser's size. Be more optimistic! :D
>Primes are perfect, Fusion is awesome and Hunters was ok for the Nintendo DS.
Until people started going crazy about Ridley maybe being in the new smash I never even heard of him. Yet I knew who Samus is and who Link is.
Ridley isn't really famous for people not really involved with Metroid.
>Primes are perfect
Prime 1 is amazing, the best one, but it's not perfect.
>Fusion is awesome and Hunters was ok for the Nintendo DS.
No it's not and no it wasn't.
Also, congrats on saying you haven't played the other games, then immediately contradicting yourself.
You do know there's also a third axis and that his wings don't have to be open all the time, right?
That applies potentially to every character that isn't Mario, Donkey Kong, Pikachu, Link and Kirby though.
One of the major themes in the game is despair, and giving up hope. It's pretty much the main antagonists goal to make the characters lose hope and fall into despair. Fairly good if you're into a Phoenix Wright type of game or VN's in general.
he didn't actually mention him though
and there also isn't a Ridley trophy on the 3DS version
Fuck it. It's just not worth it.
He isn't going to be in. There's nothing to suggest he will be in. There's a shit ton of reasons to suggest why he won't.
The sooner you people accept it, the better.
>what is DLC
teasing is the keyword here. We don't know what he's teasing. If he wanted it to be known that he was a stage boss, he would have came out and said it right there.
and they STILL haven't fixed Yoshi's grab either, near as I can tell. Why are almost all tether grabs so fucking bad? They're always slower than normal grabs which you'd think would balance out with the extra range but they seem to actually have less range than standard grabs. How is this still not been fixed?
There's something about Mario too. Is he too tan or something?
Melee had a very uniform artstyle that ended up making a lot of cartoonish characters ugly as dogshit.
What? Did I ever stated that?
I played EVERY Metroid game, even Pinball.
Primes are the best ones, followed by Super>MetroidII>Zero Mission=Fusion, then Hunters, Pinball, shit, Metroid NES, other shit, Other M.
Fuck off now peasant.
>Primes are the best ones, followed by Super>MetroidII>Zero Mission=Fusion
Your tastes are so bad they should put a ban for tastes that are THIS bad.
>really believing that Super is better than Prime in ANY way
Sure the nostalgia goggles are a great invention, but you can take them off sometimes.
>thinking Prime 2 and 3 are better than Super Metroid
>calls somebody else's taste shit
You can keep laughing. This time. This time again. Just keep laughing. It's okay. So what if he's not in? There will be more Smash games. There will be DLC. It's not over. It's never over.
As long as the series exists and keeps selling games, there will always be sequels. That's how Nintendo work. There will be sequels and the roster will continue to expand.
Sooner or later, he will be in. Sooner or later it will come true. When that time comes you will regret posting that laughing reaction image and you will regret laughing at us throughout all these years. It will be our turn to laugh at you. Think about that while you upload that shitty post for the tenth time today. The same one. Always the same one.
But, it will all come crashing down one day when he is announced. It will happen and you can not stop it. So go ahead and laugh. Take screencaps. Make some happy memories because you will need them later.
Why don't you post your list so we can all laugh?
>I'm such a classy gentlemane, these plebs they don't know about muh epic tastes in wine and fedora.
Look at the classy motherfucker.
Taste is subjective, nigga.
Everybody have good taste.
Everybody have shit taste.
You, however, don't have shit taste, just your head way too far up your own ass for taking them so seriously.
If your only reason to be hype for Smash is Ridley, you have a severe case of fanboyism.
Go get that shit treated immediatelly, this disease is known to progress into a stage that is called "Being an insufferable fucking asshole"
Finished Super Metroid with no problems, I'm the one who told that guy the other day how he was a retard for getting stuck in Maridia.
I love Super Metroid, don't get me wrong, but the Primes together for me are the best games ever made.
The same could be said of everyone here, now stop samefagging and quench your burned ass.
Prime 1 > 2 > 3 >>>>>> Hunters > inadvertently bareback fucking your grandma through a truck stop glory hole and learning the hard way that she has herpes > other m
Super > ZM > Return of Samus > Metroid > Fusion
>Metroid NES better than Fusion
Sure the /v/ brainwashing is strong in this one.
>any other video game series has canon side material such as comics or books
>people accept this and enjoy it
>Metroid has canon side material
>NO NOT CANON NOT IN GAME FUCK OFF RIDLEYFAGS IT'S NOT CANON BECAUSE IT'S NOT GAMEPLAY BECAUSE FUCK RIDLEYFAGS THEY'RE THE NEW FURRIES WHICH IS WHY I'M LETTING EVERYONE KNOW I'M ANTI-RIDLEY AND WHY I'M CHANGING MY FACEBOOK GENDER TO ANTI-RIDLEY AND WEARING ANTI-RIDLEYFAG T-SHIRTS
His quote on Metroid wiki is literally
>Kill as much as you want! Have fun!
just imagine his wing isn't stretched back like that and is instead parallel to the other wing in the foreground. this size is perfect.
He wasn't that much larger in the Melee opening, and he looked just fine. I think a lot of people forget just how much bigger he will seem when his wings are stretched out, even if his body is shrunken to fit the game
