Why does Dark Pit get so much hate?

Is it just assblasted Ridley and Ashley fanboys trying to stir up shit?
>>
lazy character design

>Why does Dark Pit get so much hate?
He's a scapegoat for cut characters/waifus/big guys who didn't get in, even though he didn't "steal" a slot from anyone. Sakurai's explained he's like a dessert.

-Another clone
-Basically just a palette swap of Pit
-Not even a good character from the game he's in
>>
>>267517102

I like him. I like making people assblasted with him online, especially purple Charizards.

He's also fun to play as. I dunno, I know he's basically the same as Pit, but yet his attacks feel much more satisfying. Can't really explain it.

Also his theme is baller as fuck

Palette swap given a character slot. At least Dr. Mario has the excuse of being from a different time.

You didn't play Uprising

Laziness

He didn't have to be a clone. He didn't to have the same Final Smash as Zelda AND Sheik.

He could have been something different. He could have summoned Hades for his Final Smash because [insert 4th wall breaking joke here].

People are stupid enough to think he prevented any characters from being in
Is he lazy as fuck? well of course, but at the end of the day he took no time from other characters or features

What's so good about him. He an edgemaster and i don't really understand his existence in that game. What do they add by having an edgier Pit all over the place? He's definitely the 2nd worst character in the game, only losing to Palutena.

He's just a reflection of Pit's inner thoughts and feelings (AKA Pit realizes the Gods are douchebags but isn't saying anything).
>>
>>267518024
I don't give a fuck about those Virgins. Most of the bosses had so much character and fun conversations, Palutena was just there for you to serve her. I'd side with Hades if i could and Fighting against/with Viridi, Pyros, and Hades was a blast. Magnus was such a badass character too but he only showed up fucking twice.
>>
>>267517102

It's just that he really doesn't add anything to the game. No one asked for him, and no one would care if he disappeared. He was already a costume in brawl (and Pit STILL has an alt that looks like him), and he's arguably one of the least diverse clones we've ever seen.
>>
>>267517979
why should he have to play Uprising to not think its a shit addition?

Alph should have been the clone, Pittoo should have been the alt
>>
>>267518000

I think Alph particularly stayed a costume just to show that it really doesn't make a difference wether the clones get their seperate slots or stay alt costumes (remember, Lucina, Doc and Pittoo were all alts originally, but were moved to seperate slots because why not)

And honestly, what difference does it make? If Alph got his seperate slot, he's have one moved altered a little bit and gotten more palette swaps, but that would be it
>>
>>267517242
People don't like him because his design is recolored Pit. At least Doc and Lucina look slightly different. This was a lazily made dessert that could have been made into something better. All three could have been scrapped to make room for more alts rather than playable characters with the same weight, ground speed, and air speed as their counterparts with minimal differences in attack attributes. Or if they insisted on having clones that similar, then at least give us someone who looks a little fucking different.

If you're going to give me a stale cookie as a free dessert after a luxurious meal, don't act like I'm supposed to be impressed with it.

>His origin occured in Chapter 5 after being manufactured from the Mirror of Truth as Pit destroys it. Though Pandora arranged his creation and intended to have him finish Pit for her, it turned out the Mirror of Truth cracked in the middle of the process and thus Dark Pit is a free agent.

>>
>>267518334
>why should he have to play Uprising to not think its a shit addition?
is dark pit a shitty addition? yes.
the issue is he thinks he's a shitty character, in the game he's from, for made up reasons because he's never played the game and just assumes "oh he's just le edge pit"
>>
>>267518550
It's not stupid to say that the character who is more visually distinct should have gotten the spot over the recolor as a lesser of two evils. You're an idiot.
>>
>>267518537
What are you even trying to say.
>>
>>267517102
Sakurai favoritism. Alph deserved his own slot more than Dark Pit.

Also
>give Dark Pit his own victory theme

>>
>>267517979
clearly you didn't even play Uprising. Or were you busy crying over your hurt wrist after playing the game for 10 minutes?
>>
>>267518550
I'd be okay with a different model having a slot over a palette swap if that's what you're asking

Pittoo is no more relevent than Dark Samus or Dark Link
>>
>>267518580

You don't even understand why I know you never played the game.
You just absolutely do not get what kind of game Uprising is and don't understand the humor of the game.

Likely you copy pasted this from a wiki
>>
>>267518584
But he is literally edgy pit. That is his entire creation, why is that so frustrating for you?
>>
>>267518687
I think he's pointing out how autists do this weird thing where they capitalize random words.

>>267518682

Except Alph isn't really visually distinct from Olimar at all. He has different eyes, but otherwise you can't fucking tell them apart, especially on the 3DS screen.

What's funny is that his dialog, especially his victory phrases, paint him as just edgy pit. The kirby hat is even the same with angry eyes!

That's awful silly to say considering Alph actually had to have his design edited to fit Olimar's hitbox more.

Did you play Uprising on a regular 3DS? I'm playing through it right now on a 3DS XL and I've yet to experience any hand cramping in the couple hour long sessions I put into it at a time.

I think the game is great though. It's honestly just Star Fox with a Kid Icarus/Sakurai coat of paint.

Yeah.
Original 3DS is kinda tiny
I get cramps sometimes when playing MK7 too.

Why do people think Alph should have been tb clone?

Olimar's already an absurdly technical and difficult character to play as and you want them to make a variation of him?
>>
>>267519050

Well you don't have it eat it. It's just on the menu
>>
>>267518715
Fuck Alph if they were gonna clone Olimar may as well make it Louie.

Alph only exists in this game because he only needs slight adjustments to make him fit the hitboxes.
>>
>>267519559

The thing is you can tell Dark Pit and Pit apart even on the 3DS screen. You can't with Alph and Olimar, especially when you start giving them palette swaps

How do you not understand that?

It seems like most clones are variations on "difficult" characters. Pit is as easy as Kirby.
>>
>>267519716

go suck some little boys dick and get thrown in jail so Jamal can rape you to death
>>
>>267519715
They're both about the same. Besides, I don't think Alph and Olimar would swap clothes for one of their palette swaps would they?
>>
>>267519585
>Olimar is absurdly technical and difficult
Haha no. Even if that's true there's still Marth, a character who is actual difficult to master, getting an easy mode clone. Give Alph invincible Rock Pikmin and boom, Olimar has an easy mode clone as well.
>>
>>267517102
He could have either been more fleshed out and unique (semi-clone like Lucas or Luigified or even a unique character) or an ant costume like Alph and the Koopalings

it's annoying and even more KI:U bias
>>
>>267519787

All of those are more straightforward than Olimar who requires a lot of practice and managing your Pikmin lineup. He's harder to main than anyone on the roster and making a second version would have just been more of that
>>
>>267519264

The entire humor of Uprising was playing and parodying with cliches and common vidya tropes with the characters being self aware about that

That's how you can easily tell that people who never played the game
>>
I tried out Dark Pit in training for a little bit and it was just Pit with a worse bow and stronger side B. Waste of a character slot IMO; he could've at least had a different moveset, or it could've been Magnus instead.
>>
>>267519715
If that's true, then why the fuck can I have Alph and Olimar on screen at the same at all? Oh right, because people can tell the fucking difference.
>>
>>267520023
see >>267519991
If he's that difficult to main, surely it would be better to give him a clone, no?
>>
>>267519952

No, they are not. You can Dark Pit is Dark Pit even when he wears his Pit costume and you can tell Pit is Pit even when he has his Dark Pit costumes, simply because the big fucking wings tell them apart. It's that simple. Alph has nothing that makes him distinctive on the tiny screen

Why can't people just accept that Dark Pit is edgy. It doesn't mean he's a bad character.

Yeah, and he comes of as your typical Anime Badass Angry rival.

He's a shit character.

>>267520241
I like how you are saying we should limit the game around 3ds limitations. Carry on.
>>
>>267517809
>>267517774
He actually ended up being the one character who saw things from a normal perspective, because he wasn't affiliated with Palutena's Army, the Underworld Army, the Forces of Nature, the Aurum, the Chaos Kin, or anyone else.

Palutena and Pit (in the interest of humans)
>Gotta protect the humans
>The humans interests are what's important, even if they're destructive, greedy, and selfish
Viridi (in the interest of nature)
>You're destroying nature
>I'm gonna destroy what destroys nature
Hades (in the interest of himself)
>Doesn't matter what's destroyed, just more souls to devour
>I'm like any other creature that consumes, so it's alright for me to stick to my nature
Dark Pit (unaffiliated)
>I'm my own entity, not just a knock-off Pit
>You gods are the ones that are purposely screwing with the balance of things to put things in your side's favor and making everything shit

Of course, everyone agreed that Hades was the biggest problem in this whole scenario and had to be eliminated, but Dark Pit was correct. Each side should be left to their own devices so events play out naturally, without the selfish influence of any gods.

But it does matter. Otherwise we wouldn't have palette swaps or alt costumes.
>>
>>267520391

>the angle

I love it.
>>
>>267520205

and if you do that, you go against what makes Olimar unique and the spirit of Pikmin in general

Marth being a more finesse oriented character and Lucina being more direct doesn't break the feel of Fire Emblem, so stuff like that is fine
>>
>>267517102
He represents everything about Sakura's bias towards his own franchises.

It wasn't quite as obvious in Brawl, even though Meta Knight got his own victory theme and was overpowered as fuck, because he was a different character with his own moveset

Pittoo on the other hand is just Pit, with slightly different specials, a reused final smash, and he got his own victory theme too which just makes Sakurai look that much more like a douchebag

I don't particularly care though because Uprising is amazing and the rest of the roster is so good that it isn't even worth complaining about
>>
>>267517102

You actually think most naysayers support fucking Ashley?

Nobody likes Ashley, she was just the first thing disconfirmed ever for SSB4, so her "fandom" (read: /v/ fapbase) appeared slightly bigger

It's all people who wanted Ridley, Mewtwo, and K. Rool

A.K.A. actual Nintendo all stars
>>
>>267520543
I love those moments in Uprising where Viridi, Palutena, and Hades bounce off once another. It's all a fucking game to them while Pit and Dark Pit are the only ones taking it seriously.

Just keep telling yourself that when Ganondorf exists
>>
Cause he's kind of exemplary of how Sakurai is kinda not being impartial, tbh I wanted Dark Samus in, Kid Icarus isn't like terrible but it's very bothersome when a franchise that has has one game in the last decade gets so much more representation when other franchises with tons of potential smash content get ignored (Metroid most notably).

>>267519715
>The thing is you can tell Dark Pit and Pit apart even on the 3DS screen.

He shouldn't have been a separate character. I would've rather seen an older character return.

You can still tell them apart even if they have the white and black alt respectively, because the fucking wings give it away no matter what.

>>267520935

These guys pretty much have to be minimal effort clones, so I think Dark Samus would be a mistake. Her abilities don't work at all as a mirror of Samus's, while Dark Pit canonically uses similar weapons and equipment to Pit.
