If you're playing smash, I feel bad for you son. I got 82 fighters and Waluigi ain't one.
89, he could make it an even 90 if he had made it... RIP WALUIGI
The website said 82. I'm assuming Pokemon Trainer counts as three. That's 85. Who are the other four?
The smash presentation said there were 89 counting all 3 pokemon and mythra and pyra as seperate
Is 82 plus 2 from Pokemon trainer and then the echos
Do Pyra/Mythra count as 2?
The echos. The echos are counted as the same number with the echo symbol instead of their own number
Especially because there are 201 items in the game INCLUDING assist trophies, so if Waluigi were to become a fighter they would have an even 90 fighters and an even 200 items
I'd bet money he's a launch character for the next one
Mario, Wario, Luigi, Bowser, Peach, Yoshi, Rosalina, Bowser Jr? DAISY, DR. MARIO, PIRHANA PLANT!?
I only complain because Daisy's a reskin, Dr. Mario is a fire emblem hybrid between Mario and Lugi, -also, all the Marth copies.
But observe nintendo slapping their waluigi fans with an enlongated bait and tackle, as plant enter's the fight.
I feel like there's still one more coming. It won't be a fighter pack but a Game of the Year or complete edition add on
I can’t believe Mitchell from Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare didn’t make it into Smash
Protect the burgertown
The campaign for AW is unironiclly good. Also still holds up graphically.
I feel more bad about Dark souls fans, they straight up got Bamboozled lmao
Yeah like for real I had such a hype for a second, good to know I’m not the only one
That trailer had me mega hype for dark souls because it was so unexpected, then the keyblade thoroughly let me down (personally! I’m very happy for sora fans so please don’t think I’m hating sakurai) because I’m a big dark souls fan. I’m impressed they got the rights to sora from disney honestly
Bro, but imagine if it was the chosen undead or the ashen one.
I would have exploded. Lightning stake Down B please.
Chosen Undead/Bearer of the Curse/Ashen one.
Elite knight set for the first, Faraam set for the second, and Firelink set (maybe) for third? Other skins include Giant Dad and fully nude with a reinforced club.
Artorias would have been cool.
I was asleep during the direct and checked who the fighter was when I woke up. I'm so glad I knew who it was before watching the reveal trailer. I would have been so upset haha. I couldn't care less about Sora, but I'm happy for KH fans
They really didn’t get anything from Disney besides the character, I mean it’s incredibly noticeable how there’s no reference to any Disney worlds goofy Donald or Mickey at all despite having characters I feel are way more minor than them in backgrounds and stuff. Disney gave the bare minimum possible
Not saying I'm against Sora, but if the character is so Disney centric that to include them you have to remove basically all their flavour and characteristics, at that point it'd be better to just not have them. Goofy, Donald, and Sora have been a trio since the first kingdom hearts. Lots of KH stuff comes from Disney. Yet nope, the stage had its design changed (the stained glass designs of goofy and Donald were swapped for two stars), obscure music because they can't use Disney tracks, and moves that don't fit at all.
I think they got rather lucky with the music, being able to put in some of the better battle themes in the series. There were only one or two tracks I was disappointed were left out. And as far as the character design goes, I don’t think much (if anything) was changed with sora. He still had the mickey keychain and fairy dust from peter pan in the trailer. The biggest removal of Disney property is Donald and Goofy from the background.
I was so ready for it to be chosen undead with that intro. Still stoked a sora, but damn.
Everyone getting turned into trophies made me think it was Tabuu
Exactly what I thought idk why they even had that segment in there if it wasn’t tabuu :(
It's a reference to unlocking the light. They were all trophies in the darkness until sora is awakened allowing the light to return and life to breath into everyone
So that’s what he learned the power of awakening for, to prep for his Smash trailer.
Prob a reference to Disney Infinity Idk)
Thought so too!
I guessed Tabuu or Master Hand then a dark souls character lol. I would've preferred any of those tbh, but Sora looks really fun to play so IDGAF
It's a bit late now, but early on I was a big proponent of Solaire of Astora. I'd forgotten all about it, right up until I saw Mario reaching for the last, dying flame.
I was hoping for Artorias since Dark Souls Remastered was on Switch but I didnt think he'd get in. The trailer made me 180 though until it was revealed to be Sora
No lie as a big kingdom hearts and Dark souls fan, it took a second to register all the emotions. Still beyond happy though.
I'm a Waluigi and Dark Souls fan. Currently in shambles. At least Doomguy got a skin ;-;
Wah! Waluigi didn't even get a mii fighter.
Don't get me wrong though, I'm really excited for Sora. One of my closest friends is a huge Kingdom Hearts fan and I am happy for him and all the other fans of Kingdom Hearts.
I’m not even a fan but got baited
who would’ve been the rep? Don’t know much about Dark Souls
Don't listen to the Solaire people. They are in a cult.
You should play as either [Ornstein or Smough](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nsps0I58yUM) based on which costume you use, and whoever you aren't playing randomly hits your opponents from juuuust out of frame right when they think they have an opening to attack you.
I feel like Soul of Cinder would a cool rep, he's the final Boss from Dark Soul 3 that represents all the previous player characters and has a moveset that is an amalgam of previous player abilities.
I ALMOST SHIT MYSELF
The moment I saw that fire, I was associated with solaire of Astora...
How is that?
The flame looked like the bonfire where you save your progress in Dark Souls.
Oh shit lol now I'm realizing how many fans must've thought that. My brain just went oh God its pyra 2
Also the whole plot of dark souls basically is that there's a dying flame for the age of light and you have to rekindle the first flame. So it was a massive bait
The only thing I called accurately was that the reveal video would lean towards one way to fake people out before showing the real character lol
May he forever rest in peace
At least now we don't have to hear theories on why assist trophies don't deconfirm DLC and why the next DLC character *has* to be Waluigi, or that he'll be a bonus character
First confirmed character for smash 6 has to be waluigi.
first deconfirmed more like
The man never made it, not even at the very end
In the WAAAAH of an angel,
Fly away from here
Oh well, at least my *third* favorite choice got in.
2. Gen 8 Pokemon rep.
woulda loved to have swampert
I think if they were gonna add a Pokémon it should’ve been Sceptile. There’s no fully evolved grass type so it’d make sense to put him in, considering he’s the only one that I imagine could be nimble enough to fight.
Gen 8? Nah man, Gen 3 trainer with Mudkip/Grovyle/Blaziken is what’s up
Which Pokémon. I still think a Duo pair would be cool. Either Appletun and Flapple or Zacian and Zamazenta
I knew it wasn’t going to happen but I’m still a bit sad. At least we have an amazing cast of characters regardless
Waluigi Is Still Not Finally Here!
., [email protected]@*
Why was Waluigi the only one of the Mario family left out of a Legendary Nintendo game/franchise?
Have we considered maybe Waluigi doesn't want to fight? That he doesn't support the bloodsport like the rest of his peers?
Doesn’t he bash people into the ground with a tennis racket??
That's not fighting, that's winning.
"I'm da weaner!"
makes sense, he appears on all the sports games and party games, but not on the fighting one
Do you not count Mario Strikers?
Everyone hates and beats the shit out of each other in that game.
That was like 15 years ago. People change. Waluigi put a lot of work into his anti anger therapie
Can’t be a blood sport at the current age rating. (PEGI 12)
This is why Doom Slayer got left as a mii costume. :(
He never shown up in the mainline Mario games. It’s trolling just to leave him out now lol
Honestly, I think Sakurai is saving it just incase.
If something goes bad and no one cares about smash for some reason, he could just bring out a new game and highlight that waluigi is in it
You’re overrating Waluigi
Yeah, but its the joke at this point.
He could have a new tier for how trash he is and still bring peoples attention to the game cus that's what the people want
But like, what was Daisy in?
There’s the idea that Nintendo doesn’t like Waluigi because he’s not an original Nintendo character. When mario tennis was being made back in the day the third party developers developing it created Waluigi so that Wario could have a tennis partner. So Nintendo has always treated him poorly because he isn’t a “real” Nintendo character.
That actually isn't true. Miyamoto likes the character, what he didn't like were the Wario and Waluigi girlfriends they tried to create so he didn't give them approval.
Nintendo NA also apparently loves the character naming a conference room after him.
I don't think he's actively disliked by anyone at Nintendo, but was probably just considered not important enough until the reaction to him not getting in. Now I'm almost certain he's getting into Smash 6.
I love him, but he doesn't have enough history to have his own obvious move set. Golf and pinball moves? He's not a character in any platforming game.
I think having moves based off all the spin off games would be really cool personally, especially since they make up such a large part of Nintendo’s first party games on a lot of their consoles.
Since they managed to make a move set for Piranha Plant I have no doubt they can do him justice.
Could you argue the same thing about donkey Kong country? None of those characters where initially Nintendo either.
and that why hes in literaly every mario party game?(mario kart, mario party, mario sports)
Your argument is that Waluigi is included in the games where Wario might need a partner, so why isn't he in smash?
Did you even read the comment you replied to?
Why would Wario need a partner in golf or mario karts that aren't double dash
Waluigi fucked Sakurai's wife. It's the only explanation.
He aint even in Warioware dawg, he's still just warios sidepiece
I feel like they should definitely include him in the WarioWare universe.
Or maybe he's already there as either Jimmy T. or Dr. Crygor.
Isn't he already a Mii costume and assist trophy? Pretty proportional to how meaningful he is to the mario franchise. He's filler and isn't a main character, or even a *memorable* character, in any notable games. Mario, Luigi and Wario each have their own franchises.
I would highly regard Daisy as even less important than Waluigi. I know she's Luigi's paring because Mario has one, but she has much less personality than Waluigi does.
But daisy was only added because they could take peach and colour her orange. She's a low effort addition to the game. Waluigi is the opposite, literally nobody on the roster has a body type like his.
Daisy is slightly more important, she was in a main Mario game. But more importantly, she's just an Echo Fighter, not a full-on fighter and is very far from being a DLC fighter. I guess Waluigi could be deserving of being an Echo Fighter, but there are so many people who want Waluigi so badly, would there even be many people really happy with him just being an echo?
because waluigi isnt real. wake up, youre dreaming
He was a brave, optimistic soul who never gave up and only offered goodness and wahness to the world....but ULTIMATELY it wasn't meant to be.
RIP Waluigi..You won't be forgotten.
Rest In Peace comrade.
i'm shocked people still thought he was getting in, i came to terms with the fact he wasn't happening ages ago.
Piranha Plant gave me hope. I thought maybe since he doesn't have a stage or music to bring with him he could be a bonus DLC for FP2 like Plant was for FP1.
I didn't EXPECT it, but it's fun to dream.
I mean… I thought the same about Sora, and here we are
I thought the same about Sephiroth, here we are
i feel that. but >!sora !
I thought it was Dark Souls with the rekindling the fire aesthetic. At least until the key part
I saw the spinning blade and legit thought it was gonna be Gwyn, and then the Disney logo appeared and I shit my pants knowing that it was Sora
Also, Dark Souls is celebrating it's 10 year anniversary, which further reinforced my initial thoughts. But, Sora seemed the most obvious choice in the long run.
He’s been there since time immemorial, but I would be curious to see what a Dark souls character would be like in Smash. A backstab mechanic would be interesting
Pary punish too. Already have dodge roll. Man, could've been crazy fun
Imagine Giantdad as final smash
I saw the spinning blade and was like
Bruh is this some reference I dont get
Then I saw the disney logo and fully jumped out my bed, not because I was excited it was Sora, but because,
A. I got the reference
B. I predicted Sora being in smash since Steve was released
No argument there
I would definitely agree. Kingdom Hearts fans have be waiting for a lot of things for too long, it's unhealthy.
I’ve never played kingdom hearts or know anything about it but it does seem like a fitting character to end it with
A soul for a soul.
F for waluigi
I kept waiting for after he said goodbye for the smash logo and waluigi to show up.
I’m happy Sora is a character but I still would have preferred the final Fighter to be Waluigi
I’m glad at least the Mii Doom Guy outfit looks cool
Once you become an assist trophy, it's game over.
L ezreal 2.0
Was never gonna happen, but it still hurts..
Welp! There's always next time!
Been begging since brawl… well here’s to the next game :/
F for Waluigi
F for Master Chief
F for Dante
F for Doom Slayer
When is Sad Boi hours for the fighters who didn't make it.
Serious question, no jokes please: if Wario got in, what reason do they have to straight up not have Waluigi in? Not saying he's a perfect candidate but Nintendo has to be aware of the demand and memes about it.
It's probably because:
-Waluigi was a third party creation for Mario Tennis, since Wario needed a partner
-Hasn't been in any major Mario games outside of Party, Sports and Kart
-Doesn't have any franchise linked to him, whilst Mario, Luigi and Wario have their own
-Isn't even on WarioWare, the franchise dedicated to the character that made him exist
Sakurai said he makes some characters assist trophies because he doesn't see them fleshed out as full characters. Waluigi has only appeared in spin-offs for sports games or Mario kart. At least wario has other games they can reference
But those sports games and spin offs don’t have a lot of representation in Smash which is weird considering how big they are for Nintendo. I’m not a Waluigi guy myself but I could have seen him being the way they get Mario Kart, Party, and the sports games a playable representation
Those spin-off games don't need representation in a game like smash. Peach already uses her golf club / racket for her side smash and there's a Mario kart stage. Waluigi being an assist trophy is there to represent the sports games now that I think about it. Sakurai just doesn't feel like he's fleshed out enough for a full character.
Wario has always been more significant than Waluigi. Wario's very first appearance was as the main villain of a Mario game, and afterwards he got two different game series where he's the main character. Waluigi is just a filler character who only exists because Wario needed a tennis partner. He's never appeared except in cameos or as a filler character in spin-offs. Literally the only reason to add Waluigi is because he became a meme. There's nothing else that's notable about him. I also don't really see what's interesting about Waluigi enough to have him be a unique character gameplay-wise. He only appears in spin-offs, so the only things he does is just what every other Mario character does in spin-offs. You might as well add any Mario character instead of him. There wouldn't really be a unique moveset that could be created from his personality either, because he's just a filler character created to be Wario's partner, he doesn't have much personality other than being like Wario. He would just be skinny Wario if he was based on the little personality he has. There's just nothing about him that makes him make sense for Smash other than the memes.
I just wanna know why people still genuinely thought Waluigi was gonna get in
i dont think any of us truely thought he was getting in. still a man can dream though.
a man can dream
People with knowledge of the Greek language: Γ Γ Γ Γ
But it's a "Gamma" or simply "G", so it actually doesn't make sense or maybe his real name is something Greek, like Gyros 😳
I don’t even want him if Sakurai isn’t making him.
Rest well king. Γ
[He's in Project M too.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZhCZW8wmi8)
I was hoping for WWAALUIGI NUMBA WWAAAN
I half expected that they would do a joke where Wario hid Waluigi s invitation all along, all the way since melee. (Yes waluigi was invited before Wario)
Not trying to be rude but let’s be honest he had no chance of getting in
Man, sorry to all the Waluigi fans. Hope y’all are alright
What would he add though?
Joy to our hearts.
A feeling of completion and symmetry.
They buried my boy in silence
Literally everyone who are non sora fans are so sad right now. I wanted phoenix wright, but waluigi, crash bandicoot, etc. just makes more sense to me tbh
I thought it was gonna be pyro from tf2..
Assist Trophies are hard deconfirms. You are legitimately delusional if you ever thought Waluigi had a ghost of a chance in this game.
