I’m some guy with apparently nothing better to do than write up articles on internet things. I consider myself to be a fairly nice person.
A quick note: I “Friend” my Followers, as a gesture of appreciation.

He claims not to be stereotyping the minority, but he’s calling us basement-dwellers. Kind of sending mixed messages there, pal. Still, at least he means well.
0/4, good for me.
Blood Falcon would basically be the Dark Pit of F-Zero representatives. He should just stay as an alternate skin of Captain Falcon.
Didn’t he say that this is his last Smash, though?
My idea for the next game to end this issue once and for all:
> Give Ganondorf an entirely new moveset that better represents his character.
> Transfer Falcondorf’s moveset over to Black Shadow, making necessary modifications.
Simple as that!
I don’t remember when he said it, but just that he said it. People applied it to a mindset of where no characters outside of video games could ever appear in any installment, but while he didn’t necessarily specify that, he explicitly stated that anime characters wouldn’t make it in.
Whether or not an official statement comes into play will never stop fans from wanting a character in. Hype for a character won’t simply go away. It’s why so many weebs wanted Goku playable even though Sakurai deliberately said “no anime/manga characters in Smash”. Even if the hyped character doesn’t make it in, the people that wanted him in will still buy the game. If you’re sore over that, I think you’re the one that needs to get over it.
There are no strings on me!
There is not enough fire on this Earth to kill this entry with. SHOOT IT INTO THE SUN!
No problem at all, I’m happy with Ridley’s role in the game as a stage boss/assist character. It’s just that the “too big” justification has me mildly rustled, considering it’s been disproven repeatedly.
Except he didn’t actually say he tried it.
> He repeatedly states that scale isn’t important for the game.
> “UM, HE’S TOO BIG GUISE!”
> He claims character accuracy is of the utmost importance.
> Adds rocket heels to Samus and makes sure that both Ganondorf and Wario barely have access to the skills they have access to in their games.
Yeah, not buying it.
Wario doesn’t have any moves relating to the Wario Land series. -10/10.
Ridley is actually smaller in this game than he was in Brawl. And in the Melee opening, comparing his to Samus, he was only a bit larger than Bowser, whose size has fluctuated vastly from game to game while Ridley has been mostly consistent. I honestly think this is some sort of diversionary tactic on his part.
Also from the horse’s mouth:
“Villager wouldn’t work as a character for Brawl. HAHA, JUST KIDDING! He’s the first newcomer for the next game.”
Don’t expect consistency from this man, genius though he is.
Uploaded an image to Metal Gear.
Don’t care, lazy.
Bear in mind that Sakurai previously stated something to the effect of “Ridley could work, but he’d probably be on the slow side” – shifting opinions isn’t new for him.
I really like that photoshopped thumbnail.
Also, keep in mind that he basically turned the three carbon-copy clones (Dr. Mario, Lucina, and Dark Pit) from being alternate skins to their own character slots on a whim. Capricious indeed.
Or Wario. Why there’s absolutely no content from the Wario Land series in his moves in favor of “lol he’s gross” content, including a gratuitous flatulence-based attack, is beyond explanation.
Bear in mind that Sakurai is capricious as far as content in his games go. He said something to the effect of “there’s no way the Animal Crossing Villager could work as a playable character” after the release of Brawl, only for the character to serve as the first announced newcomer for this generation of the game. Around that time, he also said something to the effect of “we might have been able to make a moveset for Ridley, but he’d be a bit slow”. So, as far as any first-party Nintendo character never ever being playable? I doubt it.
Nonetheless… It was a fun ride. More Metroid representatives and/or villains would be great, though.
