  • As I’m nearing a decade of continuous living in Japan, I try to think about all the strange stuff I’ve experienced. Which is a lot. Shrines dedicated to penises. Getting gropped by a curious old man in the public bath. Throwing smelly mud at strangers while extremely intoxicated as apart of a cultural festival. Acting as a tour guide and translator for a fifty person (was originally told only 2 people) delegation from a city government in Thailand only to find only that one guy could speak English. Child rearing in Japanese. Built a house. Lived near an exploded volcano and found several inches of ash on my car. Ate sushi off a hairy man’s stomach. He was a fellow teacher and it was during work drinking party. At one time, I owned a chipmunk. Adopted a stray kitten off the street. Was attacked by a monkey. And chased by a badger. Shot a boat. Found a bear on top to my car. Got bit by a Mukade. Got married.

    But one stand out experience was at a bar (as most things are) about 8 years ago. My drinking buddy who was usually a very happy drunk tried to get buddy buddy with this one guy but the guy brushed him off. My buddy took offense and tried to square the guy up (in my friends defense, he was quite big). It ended up this guy my friend tried to get to fight was a Yakuza boss. So about 5 other guys who were sitting in random places immediately sprang to action and pushed us onto the bar. The bartender was our friend and was trying to smooth things over while I was also trying to calm things down as the only foreigner who could speak Japanese while having my face pressed down on the bar. We were promised that they would send us back to our countries in bags if we tried that stunt again. I remember my friend asking “Dude, what’s he saying” and I said “They will send us in body bags if we do this Gain” and his rely “Fuuuuu....”. The Yakuza boss then signaled to his men to sit down, gave the bartender a glare, and told us to find some place to go drink. We quickly shuffled out and were sadly told by our bartender friend that we were unwelcome. We later learned that if we were to come back, it would be trouble for the bartender there.

    Yep....that was the weirdest.

    My most-wanted list has changed here and there throughout the years. Smash has included some characters that were expected (Mega Man and Shulk) while others were dreams come true (Cloud and Ryu) and others have been waiting a long time (Ridley and KKR). Other characters like Ganondorf and Mewtwo were on my Pre-Smash Melee list and Toon Link and Wolf were on my Pre-Brawl list. Some characters like James Bond or Meowth who were on my early, early list will never happen.

    Now that most of the characters that I want to see have been included (with the exception of Isaac, Elma, and Dixie Kong), not much is left. Which had led me to broaden and radicalize my list. Especially given that most DLC if not all will be 3rd party.

    Here’s my list as of today:
    1) Scorpion
    2) Banjo-Kazooie
    3) Dovahkin
    4) Master Chief
    5) Lloyd Irving
    6) Monster Hunter
    7) Jack from Harvest Moon
    8) Sora
    9) Son Goku
    10) Chrono
    11) Monster Hunter
    12) Doom Slayer
    13) Tracer or Solider 76
    14) Altair (Assassin’s Creed)
    15) Commander Shepard
    16) Gargos (Killer Instinct)
    17) Paperboy
    18) Jibanyan
    19) Nightmare (SoulCalibur)
    20) Sephiroth

    Like you, I'd love to see Goku in the game.. but it's sadly not going to happen because he's a manga character... sucks asssssss

    I have some fan favorites and some weird choices out of left field that I'd like to see. (The top 7 are in order, while the rest are in no particular order.)

    Xurkitree

    Banjo-Kazooie
    Crash Bandicoot
    Bandana Dee
    Tetromino
    Scorpion
    Tails

    Add Crono and I'd die a happy man...after playing him for a while, of course. But happy nonetheless.
    I am super excited for Animal Crossing Switch. I have a whole grocery list of things I want to see included ranging from gameplay to new collectables to even furniture.

    But for now I want to focus on four new Villager species I would love to see be included:

    Moles (not the Resetti kind)
    Lizards (Iguanas, Gilda, Komodo, Etc)
    Lemurs (ruffed, ring-tailed, etc)
    Bat (Vampire, fruit, little brown, etc)

    In addition, it would be fun to see these following species in a particular character role like Mr. Nook:

    Hyena (maybe in a circus?)
    Cheetah (marathon event)
    Tasmanian Devil (some sort of accomplice with Red?)
    Proboscis Monkey (specializes in medicine maybe. Especially the nose)
    Meerkat (not sure...hmmm)
    Bandicoot (same as above)
    Smashboards Pro Tip #2: Posting a media-only post counts to spam. This includes posting a video to state a point or using an image to react to the thread. This counts as spam and may be given a warning or infraction.

    If you want to post a video, maybe make a comment about the video, quote and respond to a previous post, or participate in the conversation while also aiding the media content.
    If you could change one thing about Ultimate, what would it be?

    The ability to slide off platforms and such while wave landing

    Dr. Edgeworth Dr. Edgeworth that's why I play Omega form online. The platforms get in the way and leave me vulnerable to aerials and up-smashes. Espically when I try to land a surprise DDD recovery on someone, the platforms get in the way.

    Besides the roster, I would change the presentation of Direct: E3, Ken/Incineror Direct with WOL teaser, Isabelle, and final Simon/Richter Trailer.
    My daughter would make for a good newcomer:

    Special: Temper Tantrum because the juice box is empty
    Side Special: Booger Fling
    Up Special: Climb on something that I know I shouldn’t but I still do
    Down Special: Poo Bomb

    Final Smash: Meal Time

    There's someone in my gym class who would have a similar moveset... revolving around farting, making stupid sounds, and pestering the girls in my grade. The sad thing is that he's almost a senior in high school.

    Somewhat. It's just one attack shared by Wario. Except it deals more damage and has the same effect as Piranha Plant's poison cloud.
    My six English classes got cut down to only two classes cause of the flu. In Japan, if a little over half of the class has the flu, the class is canceled for just about a week. Makes my day easier but feel bad for my elementary students :(

    Yikes, that's pretty scary to hear. I hope they all make a swift recovery! :)

    Hope so too. My entire seventh grade (four classes) were cancelled last week.

    Luckily, child healthcare is free in Japan. So all medicine and doctor visits up to graduating junior high (some prefectures up until high school graduation) is completely free.
    I’m liking Mortal Kombat 11 so far. I loved X’s “three per character” customization system. I’m glad it’s returning and expanded further. The roster is looking solid and I’m happy to see Skarlet back. Not sure about Kronika but her henchman, Geras, looks interesting. The game looks more close to X then X did to 2011 but that’s not really a bad thing. And evil Raiden is something I can get behind.

    Sakurai and Boon, bring Scorpion in Smash.

    Latest Appearance:

    BIOGRAPHY
    The Reckless Notice Safety Guy is one who we all know quite well. He informed us on how to properly wield the mighty Wii Mote...both safely and effectively. We saw him before we started our games and his sage wisdom guided us to hours of safe entertainment. His reassuring words and safety demonstration gave us the foundations of Wii safety protocol that not only would span to the Wii U but to the Switch. His attention...nay...dedication to safety would be the underlying key foundations of safety in Nintendo products today.

His loves have further reach though.

They are transported to a cutscene in a living room where the fighter performs various attacks using both controllers on the opponent.

    Otacon: You actually know him? That’s surprising...
    Snake: Why? You think I spend my free time working out and studying my enemies?
    Otacon: ....Yes?
    Snake: Playing the Wii was not only a good way to relax but also to practice my dexterity. Me and this guy became friends real quick.
    Otacon: Reeeeeally? I find that a bit hard to believe.
    Snake: Yeah. In between missions I was totally working out to Wii Sports and getting my Mario Party on.
    Otacon: Which reminds me, why wasn’t there a Metal Gear game on the Wii?
    Snake: Well, the motion aspect just didn’t fit well with the Metal Gear theme.
    Otacon: But there’s a zapper.
    Snake: It didn’t fit well with the theme.

    Pit: Man, I’ve seen blue people but this is nuts. He’s all blue! And he’s wielding some sort of ancient artifact of supernatural power. Perhaps it’s an ancient relic cursed by Hades?

    Viridi: Geez. Don’t have a cow. I know it’s a difficult pill to swallow but it’s better to be red pilled than blue pilled, right? Or maybe black pilled in this case.
    Palutena: Regardless, he uses techniques hat would be considered unsafe...definitely unsafe if you ask Parenting Gaming Monthly.
    Pit: Why should I even try...I’m just being controlled...
    Viridi: Remember how overpowered Meta Knight and Bayonerfta was? In the hands of an unskilled player, they were garbage!
    Palutena: Thibk that if you do well, it’s because your powers complimented that of the gamer controlling you.
    Pit: I suppose that...
    Viridi: Just think of a fatty McFatty with greedy Cheeto figures telling you where to go and what to do!

    Snake: VaultTech? What’s that?
    Colonel: A mega corporation in the business of making under ground vaults.
    Snake: Vaults? To store what? Toys? Boxes?
    Colonel: People.
    Snake: Colonel, you’re losing me. Why people?
    Colonel: Smash is made of tons of different universes. Vault Boy comes from an universe where humanity nearly destroyed themselves through nuclear warfare.
    Snake: Yikes. We almost had that but yours truly saved the day.
    Colonel: Indeed. VaultTech built underground vaults for a select few to live in until the fallout subsided. Some opened up a two decades later while others opened up much later. Others never opened up. Basically a living tomb.
    Snake: And this guy...
    Colonel: Is the face of the company. He lent his image to the Pip-boy. The tool for survival and governance both in the vaults as well as in the radiated wasteland.

    Pit: I think my AngelNet subscription ran out.
    Viridi: Or you forgot to pay for it!
    Palutena: Vault Boy comes from the Fallout universe. It’s where humanity launched nuclear weapons at each other. It nearly destroyed the world but underground vaults sheltered them.
    Viridi: Humanity always finds a way to mess things up.
    Pit: Ummm...color me confused but what’s a nuclear bomb?
    Viridi: You mean you don’t know!? A nuke! Bomb! BOOM!
    Palutena: Angels don’t have omnipotence and infinite knowledge. I’m not surprised he doesn’t know...
    Pit: .... ok...so I’m guessing his world suffered a lot of damage. So why does he have all these weapons?
    Viridi: Humanity was set back for centuries and, in their absence, creature mutated and the world they once lived in changed. Some managed to live in the radiated surface while others lived in cramped vaults.
    Palutena: To survive, people created crazy weapons to defend themselves with.
    Pit: I see. I think...
    Viridi: And Vault Boy is the image of the company that made the vaults!
    Palutena: He’s your go to guy to help you out in the wasteland. He’s got maps, your gear, and even radio stations!
    Pit: Geeez! Maybe he can simplify his world’s lore for me!

    Snake: Come here, Springy, and I will show you what a real fighter can do!
    Mei Ling: That’s no ordinary fighter, Snake! That’s Springman!
    Snake: I figured. Not really an original name.
    Mei Ling: Well, he can fight with springs for arms.
    Snake: Maybe Springod? Mr. Spring? Spring of Spring? Captain Spring?
    Mei Ling. And he uses ARMS. They are a type of...
    Snake: ARMS?!? Ok! Give me the phone. I’m calling the writers.
    Mei Ling: Ummmm...
    Snake: What’s next? A hat they wear called HEADS or a shoe called FEET?!
    Mei Ling: I’m surprise you are this fired up, Snake. I’ve never seen you this agitated.
    Snake: Bad writing and unoriginal naming convention irritates me.
    Mei Ling: If it’ll help you focus on the fight, I’ll give them a call.

    PALUTENA’S GUIDANCE
    Pit: Man, these fists can go really far!
    Palutena: I see you are fighting Springman.
    Viridi: Excuse me?
    Palutena: He is Springman, an athlete trainer in expandable combat called ARMS.
    Pit: They are really hard to dodge. He’s like Little Mac but attacks from long-distance.
    Palutena: Well, that’s his entire gimmick.
    Viridi: Wait....are these ARMS thier actual arms or the boxing gloves?
    Pit: Are you asking if those springs are his arms?! That would make a WHOOOOOLE allot of daily activities super difficult!!
    Palutena: They are his fists. The boxing gloves as you called?
    Pit: Imagine trying to use the toilet?! You might just launch yourself right off it without thinking?
    Palutena: I’m sure they are used to it. The sane could be days about your wings, Pit.
    Pit: Not the sane thing. I told them close to my back!
    Viridi: Hey! TMI! I don’t want to hear how you use the bathroom! Yuck!
    Palutena: Anyways, just watch out for those long-distance punches! He can use them in a variety of ways so adapt your strategy to them!

    First Appearance: Mach Rider (NES, 1985)
    Latest Appearance: None

    BIOGRAPHY
    Mach Rider is a lone adventurer in a barren wasteland affected by an alien invasion in 2112 which destroyed Mach Rider’s homeland. The Rider goes in search for a new home but is attacked along the way by the alien invaders.

    HISTORY WITH SMASH
    Mach Rider was featured as a trophy in Melee, we a sticker in Brawl, and has a track from the Mach Rider game in every Smash game from Melee to Ultimate.

    GAMEPLAY ATTRIBUTES
    Mach Rider is constantly on his bike which makes him a strange character to play as. The rider has good speed but it takes some time to accelerate in order to move forward at a good speed. The rider has good jumping attributes and his running speed affects the distance and height of the jumps.

    MOVESET
    Neutral: Mach Wheel (Mach Rider takes the bike and quickly lifts it up. The infinite jab is a tire spin that does damage followed by a jab finisher where the bike is pushed forward slightly.)
    Dash: Wheelie (Mach Rider lifts up the bike and performs a wheelie for the dash.)

    F-Tilt: Tire Swipe (Performs a lift attack that hits horizontal with the tire.)
    U-Tilt: Bike Uppercut (A much stronger form of the Neutral jab with more lift to it.)
    D-Tilt: Tire Spam (Mach Rider lifts the tire and slams it down onto the ground.)

    FSmash: Back Tire (Mach Riser flips the bike around and spins the back tire into the opponent.)
    USmash: Pogo (Mach Rider rears up the bike so it is almost straight up on one tire and then jumps up; slamming the front tire upwards.)
    DSmash: Spinout (Mach Rider spins rapidly in a full circle, design high damage on all sides.)

    Nair: Downward Decline (Mach Rider takes the front tire and slams it downwards at a wide arc.)
    Fair: Air Time (Mach Rider spins rapidly as the bike moves forward; doing three quick full rotations.)

    N-Special: Mach Blaster (Mach Rider can fire energy shots from the motorbike which explodes with plasma explosions. He can spam the attack but they become weaker the more it is used.)
    S-Special: Mach Launcher (Mach Rider jumps out of the motorbike and launches it as a deadly explosive missile when it hits an object or an opponent. After launching the motorbike, the rider will land on the ground and immediately summon a new bike. In theory, it’s similar to Bowser Jr.’s Up Special.)
    U-Special: Reconstruct (Acting like Zelda’s teleport, Mach Rider will deconstruct into pixels and then reconstruct depending on where the player inputs the control stick.)
    D-Special: Burn Out (Mach Rider will spin his back wheel as long as the special button is held. When released, he will rocket forward at high speeds. It is hard to handle and can cause a suicide if not used carefully but yields very high damage output.)

    Final Smash: Quadrunners (Mach Rider vanishes and appears in front of the screen and will immediately begin firing. The energy shots themselves dea damage but, in addition, Quadrunners will appear and ride towards the stage which dead damage. They will also explode when shot causing more damage.)

    Snake: Hey, that’s a pretty cool bike. I want it.
    Colonel: That must be the Mach Rider and the Mach Bike.
    Snake: Yeah. It can shoot and stuff. I want it.
    Colonel: Well, that probably won’t work, Snake. It was made specifically for the Mach Rider.
    Snake: I can probably jury rig it.
    Colonel: Probably not. See how it can reconstruct? You will probably explode into thousands of bit-sized pieces.
    Snake: That doesn’t sound good. I like myself whole very much.
    Colonel: Plus, the Mach Rider needs it to find a new home.
    Snake: Find a new home?
    Colonel: Yeah, Mach Rider’s hometown was destroyed by aliens.
    Snake: That bites. Hey, why don’t we get aliens in MSG?
    Colonel: You don’t think they tried? It looks good on paper but never works out.
    Snake: Well, maybe we can hire this Mach Rider and the team who wrote the story then, heh.

    PALUTENA’S GUIDANCE
    Pit: Umm...should fighting on a motorcycle be allowed. Seems a little OP.
    Viridi: Same could be saved for people with wings!
    Palutena: That would be Mach Rider.
    Viridi: What Rider? Kamen Rider?
    Palutena: Hardly. Mach Rider.
    Pit: Let me guess...sad backstory...
    Palutena: Basically, the Mach Rider is on a journey in order to find a new home after it was destroyed by an invading alien species.
    Viridi: Whoa? Alien species?!
    Pit: Could if of been the Aurum? Space Pirates? Starmen? Deoxys?
    Palutena: No, these aliens are the Quadrunners and fight by chasing Mach Rider in their bikes.
    Pit: That’s a bit underwhelming. It seems a reboot is in order.
    Palutena: Not all games get a reboot, Pit. Just look at ROB and Duck Hunt.
    Pit: I guess some games are not up to the Kid Icarus caliber.
    Viridi: Puh-lease! I played board games more exciting than Uprising!
    Palutena: I’ll blame you when we don’t get a a sequel. Anyways, Pit, watch out for that bike. It’s slow to start but very fast when it gets going. Plus, it can fire energy shots.
    Pit: In that case, I’ll call in my Lightning Chariot! It will become a vehicular battle game!
    Now time for something entirely different...

The Champion’s Power can only be used once until a countdown commences.)

    Final Smash: Four Divine Beasts (Link strikes the opponent with his sword which triggers a cutscene calls forth the four divine beasts who, along with their deceased Champions, release four massive energy beams that obliterates the opponent.

    Snake: Say...Link looks a bit different, yeah?
    Otacon: That’s not all. He has tons of new weapons to boot.
    Snake: Seems like overkill. You don’t see me fighting with a Metal Gear or anything.
    Otacon: I hardly compared fighting with an ice arrow to fighting with a WMD.
    Snake: Still, what makes this particular Link so special.
    Otacon: Well, he’s practically more than 110 years old.
    Snake: You just had to go there. Taking a shot at my aging problem...
    Otacon: oh, geez, Snake. Grow some thick skin.
    Snake: Says the four eyes who collects girlie magazines.
    Otacon: Hey leave them out of it! Do you want any info or not?
    Snake: Fine, lay it on me.
    Otacon: The Link you face before didn’t have the launching power as Champion Link. But this one is even slower and more heavy so use that to your advantage!
    Snake: Haha take that Me. Perpetually Young!

    PALUTENA’S GUIDANCE
    Pit: Man, where does Link keep all these items?!
    Palutena: Well, this particular one actually has a weight limit but that doesn’t seem to be a factor here.
    Viridi: He seems slower than before. But with more launching power.
    Palutena: That’s correct. This Link differs in that he wields a wide variety of weapons ranging from claymores to axes to tree branches.
    Pit: It’s not really fair.
    Palutena: Not only that but he can also call upon the Four Champions of Hyrule. Daruk, Mipha, Rivali...
    Viridi: AND URBOSA! She is my favorite! So cool and strong!
    Palutena: Each one grants Champion Link a special ability like granting him health, delivering a strong shock of lightning, providing him a strong shield, and granting him an updraft to save himself with.
    Pit: Whoa! That’s totally unfair! I’m suing!
    Viridi: Angels can’t sue, Pit.
    Palutena: Though his appearance is just like the Link we all know and love. But...
    Pit: Oh great, there’s more?
    Viridi: No johns, Pit!
    Palutena: While other characters may have red and blue outfits to distinct each color swap, Champion Link makes use of the various armor and outfits found in Breath of the Wild.
    Pit: Well, at least that doesn’t give him an unfair advantage. I can beat him with any kind of armor he wears!

    Snake: Hmmm...I don’t recall. I generally don’t remember names of people that I don’t fight.
    Colonel: Well, that would make sense considering you couldn’t damage assist trophies.
    Snake: So, what makes this guy special. Lay it on me.
    Colonel: He wields both a gun-sword combo and is very fast.
    Snake: Actually it’s a beam sword, Colonel.
    Colonel: I see. On top of that, he can transform into a Ruffian.
    Snake: Ruffian?
    Otacon: A monstrous creature capable of mass destruction. Be careful, Snake!
    Snake: Great...I should add “Stopping weapons of mass destruction on my resume.”

    PALUTENA’S GUIDANCE
    Pit: Whoa, this guys got some moves! He won’t let up!
    Palutena: That’s Saki from Sin and Punishment. He has great agility and jumping ability.
    Pit: I can definitely see that. He’s jumping about all over the place.
    Viridi: I hear he also has a secret power to transform into a Ruffian.
    Palutena: Humans were near the brink of destruction from over-population. In order to not starve, scientists created the Ruffian, a life form intended to be used as a good source.
    Pit: That...that’s sort of messed up.
    Palutena: Humanity isn’t always the shining examples we see in warriors like Marth or Mario.
    Pit: So Saki is one of these Ruffians, then?
    Palutena: He has the ability to transform into one. It was by chance after being infected by Ruffian blood.
    Viridi: Humans make me sick.
    Palutena: It certainly wasn’t the best choice but what could they do - starve?
    Viridi: Still, it doesn’t sit right with me...
    Pit: I don’t wanna let my emotions get the best of me. Anyway to fight this guy?
    Palutena: Keep him in your toes and use attacks that can launch him away. He’s not very heavy.
    Pit: Right! I’m sure he will understand. We all fight for something. He fights for his survival...
    Viridi: What do you fight for, Pit?
    Pit: ......... for cheese! Delicious cheese!

    CODEC
    Snake: Hey, is this one of the Kong clan?
    Otacon: Yeah, that’s right. Her name is Dixie Kong and is Diddy Kong’s girlfriend.
    Snake: Ah I see. That makes things a bit complicated.
    Otacon: Why’s that?
    Snake: Diddy might not like be handing the smack down to his main squeeze. I sure as heck wouldn’t.
    Otacon: Well, Mario fights Peach. Links fights Zelda. And Diddy Kong fights Dixie Kong. I’m pretty at this point, it doesn’t actually matter.
    Snake: You have a point there.
    Otacon: Still though, you might want to take it easy. She’s a girl after all, Snake.
    Snake: And what does that mean, Otacon? Some of my greatest enemies were women.
    Otacon: Nothing! Never mind I said anything.
    Snake: Note...to...self...Otacon...said...I...should...go....easy...on a.... girl...
    Otacon: Stop that!
    Snake: And...he...wants me...to...stop it...

    PALUTENA’S GUIDANCE
    Pit: Looks like I’m fighting Dixie Kong.
    Palutena: You don’t sound like your usual plucky self, Pit.
    Pit: I don’t really like fighting this sort of opponent. Makes me feel bad.
    Viridi: Say that when you aren’t getting a face full of orange grenades.
    Palutena: I shouldn’t be the one to tell you not to underestimate your opponents, Pit.
    Pit: Right...I do have a question though.
    Palutena: And what’s that?
    Pit: Aren’t Dixie and Diddy Kong, related? You know? Kong?
    Palutena: Hmmm...
    Pit: And Donkey has Candy Kong.
    Viridi: The Kong clan is certainly big. There’s Chunky and Kiddie Kong.
    Pit: Dixie and Tony.
    Palutena: Swanky, Lanky, and Funky.
    Pit: And don’t forget the patriarch and matriarch, Cranky and Wrinkly!
    Viridi: They rival the Belmont clan!
    Pit: But instead of hunting vampires and undead creatures, they hunt banana steeling reptiles.
    Palutena: I’m sure they will tell you about it over a banana or two.
