It's funny cause Ridley and Simon were rumored in the same leak for E3.

(Updated)

blue - starting
red - unlockable
11 newcomers - 2 of which unlockable
going off of the "no cuts + ridley, ice climbers and simon belmont" text leak since we have nothing else
72 total characters - 63 starting and 9 unlockables
organized by by prominent characters along the top and series below

skull kid - zelda rep, stand in for what will likely be between him and botw characters
captain toad - jump worked into his moveset through springs like sonic
k rool - heavyweight as expected, likely a bombshell hype reveal character
waluigi - also a hype character
inklings - yeah not too sure about this one
marx - more unique than bandana dee and fleshed out in star allies
rusty - replace with any wtf character
wolf is back
eevee - representing the new leaked games. weak at first but evolves through a limit break mechanic where you can choose an offensive upside flareon, defensive upside vaporeon, or a speedy jolteon for the rest of the stock
rex (+ pyra) -
amaterasu - third party using brush strokes as specials
simon belmont - in the text leak, reps konami's involvement before snake is considered for dlc maybe possibly sorta
Official Prediction for gamer clout

I mean ffs the Ridley bandwagon needs  to never come back. 99.99% of the degenerate weaboo faggots sucking ridleys dick have probably never played a metroid game and only jack off to Zero suit R34. There are more than a half dozen metroid charachters who would make a far better pick.

Definitely want someone from BOTW in there, like a rotating Champions character (just Urbosa would be fine).

I unironically think he would be a great fit and if he was put in I would giggle like a madman.

He's from an iconic series that shaped the fps genre, and video games as a whole. Plus Bethesda has been putting a lot of stuff on the switch recently.

Just make it less graphic and there we go, or have the BFG as his final smash

It's possible. It'd be cool if they could find a way to put him in, I just don't know how likely it is realistically.

i mean come on, WHY WOULD THEY HAVE YOU USE A SHOTGUN IN SMASH BROTHERS, THINK

Don't bring up Snake because MGS isn't even close to being as violent. In Brawl, he never used guns or any weapons that couldn't be waved off as "cartoony," like bazookas and mortars and shit. It works because intense, gory violence was never the important thing about MGS. The most violent thing he does in Brawl is the neck snap, which is honestly a little overboard and I wish they didn't put that in.

Don't bring up Bayonetta because she shouldn't be in the game either.

the next time sakurai gets interviewed, i want someone to ask him why ridley is in the game after he gave a legitimate, repeated, and agreeable reason why he wasn't in the game for years

he'll probably talk about how bowser changes size all the time and shit, and how olimar and kirby are actually very small, but those are highly stylized cartoon characters, so it works

ridley is a lot less cartoonish, he's meant to be TERRIFYING, and now he's a goddamn shrimp

and i'm supposed to be hyped about this

You need to work on not sounding incredibly condescending all the time. It's incredibly off-putting.

Grenade launcher was snake's final smash in brawl

What I want him to do is be in the game as a playable character and punch people off the screen, I'm not asking for stuff like the gif jono posted

He has cartoony or fictional guns like the BFG-9000, plasma gun, railgun, rocket launcher, etc.

the neck snap got into brawl and that sounds way more violent than what I just mentioned

"Don't bring up Bayonetta because she shouldn't be in the game either"

I don't like her either but she got into the game in the first place, and I'd argue Doomguy is a more appropriate character than her. Doesn't she use real guns too?

His size does seem to vary a bit as far as I can tell from game to game, and in Smash he's really hunched over which makes him appear smaller.

why are you mad an evil space pterodactyl is in the game

BFG also stands for "big fucking gun" and i'm sorry but you can't get away with that in a smash bros game

and you can't have doomguy in smash without his BFG as his final smash, it just doesn't work

i don't understand why you'd want a lesser, pussified version of a character when sakurai has gone to such lengths to make each and every character (except ridley, i guess) REFLECT in some way how they play in their respective games

i'd say they're on par with each other in terms of the gratuity they're able to get away with

but it doesn't matter i hate her STOP TRYING TO RUIN MY SMASH BROTHERS REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

ridley's size hasn't varied that much, really—his typical size ranges from "very big" to "fucking immense," and the only time he's ever been small is in metroid 1, which was more due to the NES's limitations than anything else

if they remade metroid 1, they'd buff up ridley's size (or maybe they wouldn't now, who knows)

it's inherently upsetting to me when you start taking away fundamental properties of what makes characters cool—i don't wanna play as a miniature-ass baby ridley, i wanna rip people's guts out with a normal sized ridley, because the intimidation factor of his sheer size is part of what makes the character cool and scary, and that's gone now

i understand it would be imbalanced, but that's why i never wanted him in the first place
