  1. Sothe & Micaiah - echo of Zelda & Sheik Gabriel and/or Trevor Belmont - echo of Simon Protoman and/or Bass - echo of Megaman Sylux - echo of Samus Ken - echo of Ryu
  2. I am of the opposite opinion. I love the portrayal of Dracula; I found that it added so much depth to his character and made him so sympathetic (to me) that I find it difficult to root for the protagonists for no other reason than that they oppose this intelligent, romantic, misunderstood monster. I love the hard line that they take against organized religion. I like Trevor. I do not find him insufferable. I find his apathy an understandable and appropriate response to the state of his country, and this is counter-balanced by a desire to help those whom he has determined to deserve it. I do agree that the music could use work. That should be fixed in future episodes.
  3. I'm not sure if echo fighters for Robin and Corrin are even necessary. As avatars, their appearance and gender are up to the player, meaning that in a sense, Robin is the echo fighter of Robin, and it would be just as effective to include additional facial features and hairstyles in their costume selection.
  4. About the FE Characters...

    Ike is a difficult case. He's very popular, but as someone who really, really likes the Tellius games, even I have to admit that the largest source of his popularity is Smash itself - just like Roy. I think there is a case to be made for Ike being carried over to a series reboot or for him being left out in favor of giving a new hero his kind of Smash spotlight. I could see this going either way, though I would be disappointed if Ike were ever removed, given that he represents such a bold part of the series' history.
  5. About the FE Characters...

    I think there is a place for 1 additional FE character in Smash Bros ultimate, as dlc and a non-sword wielder. I would be baffled if that character is anyone other than Edelgard. As for a theoretical Smash 6, I doubt it will go the Ultimate route. It will probably be a reboot that resets the roster entirely. In that case, I predict that FE will be reduced to a few distinct characters that are relevant to the modern age of the time (as in Marth and possibly Robin would be the only existing reps to carry over, with the rest being from new games).
  6. I'd like to make a few changes: Legend of Zelda 6) Ganondorf (Hyrule Warriors version, Wind Waker version as costume) Metroid: 8) Samus/Dark Samus/Sylux (alt costumes) Fire Emblem: 10) Lord (Marth, Ike, Roy, Chrom, Lucina, Leif, Eirika, and Seliph as costumes, no recolors) 11) Mage (Robin, Celica, and Micaiah as costumes, no recolors, unique spell animations with same effects for each) 12) Paladin (Xander, Sigurd, Eliwood, and Seth as costumes, no recolors) 13) War Cleric (Edelgard, Lyssa, and Libra as costumes, no recolors) As a note, sequels would get additional FE classes: Swordmaster (Lyn, Ryoma, Navarre, Joshua) Warrior (Hector, Charlotte, Dorcas) Lancer (Ephraim, Nephenee, Dimitri) Archer (Takumi, Innes, Claude, Louise) Rogue (Sothe, Jaffar, Heather) Singer/Dancer (Azura, Ninian, Reyson, Olivia, all unarmed)

    Perhaps the easiest playable incarnation of the 4 would be something akin to having one playable while the others provide support via specials from the background, similar to how Pokemon trainer stands in the background.

    I do really want to see the BotW champions, but I think there may be scoping issues. The only real way to represent them in playable form is as a transforming character or to have them somehow all cooperate in a single moveset like the Ice Climbers. To only include one would be just wrong, and I see an assist trophy as being perhaps the most realistic means of including them. Also, is there like a poll with the most popular Champion? I've seen no evidence on that front, and I had just always assumed that Mipha was the most popular.

    To be honest, I'm not a fan of the three versions of Link at all - not when characters like Impa, Midna, Zant, Ghirahim, Skull Kid, Ruto, the 4 Champions, or anyone else (that isn't Tingle) exist. But ultimately, I think the distinction comes down to current Ganondorf not being a quality representation of any of his game incarnations or the character as a whole.

    On the topic of echo fighters, Ganondorf deserves better than just being a bad echo fighter of Captain Falcon. If he was reworked to say... Hyrule Warriors Ganondorf with a Wind Waker costume, that would be even better than a new character.
  11. Stage idea: Grima's Back

    Awakening already has Arena Ferox, and if we have to be limited to one Awakening stage, I'd rather it stay that way. Though I am completely open to Grima as a possible stage. If we get a new stage, I hope it's the opera house from Fates. That would be incredibly interesting from both a gameplay and aesthetic perspective.

    Agreed. I love female Morgan. But is it necessary for them to be an echo fighter when they could so easily be a costume?
  13. shut up, chrom is in smash ultimate

    If Celica's spells and sword are significantly different from those of Robin, she would not be an echo fighter. If Celica's spells and sword are not significantly different from those of Robin, she would not be accurate to her game - at all. Also, Chrom was already intended to be included in Smash 4 and probably had some degree of completed code.

    That is an illusion though. Removing an echo fighter doesn't mean adding a new unique moveset. The scale of work involved is completely different. After all, was anyone in the entire universe asking for Daisy? Probably not, but a recolor of Peach with some slightly different mechanics takes less work than putting in someone like Walluigi or Captain Toad. If we are getting a new moveset (cough Edelgard cough), it will be as DLC by popular demand or to promote a new game, and I'm personally okay with that.

    I'm happy for Chrom. He's one of my favorite FE lords (possibly even more so than Ike, now that I've had an opportunity to replay the Tellius games and reign in my nostalgia somewhat). That said, I hope that this Echo fighter rebranding was the right move. I personally would have gone with costumes rather than dedicated slots. Perhaps the way that they're being treated, including sorting options, will cause them to not be treated as full reps. In that case, perhaps Fire Emblem's representation will be less of a controversy for the Smash community. After all, FE only has 4 reps when you remove echo fighters. And we do really deserve more variety in our reps (Edelgard would do a lot to fix that).
