Let's talk moveset! So I'd imagine his inclusion is gunna revolve around Mario Party and the sports titles. I would love to see some Mario Kart inclusion in some fashion.

Side B- Rides a Kart similar to Wario's Bike
Up B- Dice Punch Block to get an extra boost, maybe the roll can determine height or damage?
Neutral B- Golf Put, placed a golf ball and either a timing minigame or how long you hold determines strength and trajectory
Down B- Super Striker Kick. Any opponents that get in your way receive a kick to the teeth, sending them flying in the shape of a ball.

I was thinking about it and i would say :
Side B- Dash with thorns like strikers
Up B-The Crawl from old mario tennis
Neutral B-Thorns whip like strikers again
Down B- His assist trophy move where he kick you down and bury you

Now that you mention it it would be better that way like down b he take a bob omb or has a kind of counter when he says TOO BAD WALUIGI TIME or CHEATER. But the thorn wip should stay imo it's one of his only weapon where we can say that's waluigi's

I feel like bob-ombs should be one of his moves, but not like the already-in-the-game bob-omb. I was thinking hitting them like a tennis ball would be really cool.

And also, might just be personal preference but I want to avoid similarity to the assist trophy at all costs. I just don't want the character to be associated with his failure as an assist trophy, ya know?

That would make his moveset easier tho
I mean, I don't want an easy moveset. He's been represented for what? 20 years? He has enough material to give him a completely unique moveset. Honestly I think he deserves a unique moveset. He's a unique character, and the pummel didn't really even seem Waluigi-esque. It's like they wanted a SOMEONE to have that ground pummel, and they were just like "eh, Waluigi will work"

I've though about it and this is my take on Waluigi's moveset. I didn't want it to be too gimmicky and reliant on sports and spin-offs. The only sport equipment I thought were necessary is the tennis racket, because tennis is Waluigi's origin. I feel like this moveset fit his personality and charm. The dancing is incorporated into it, and I made sure to reference Waluigi's relationship with Wario by pulling off some moves from Wario into Waluigi with some differences. It's not the most unique or wackiest moveset there could be, but I made one that I believe fits Waluigi well.

Jab: Waluigi does a simple three hit combo that finishes with a kick.
Side tilt: Waluigi swings his tennis racket
Down tilt: A quick kick that can potentially trip
Up tilt: An uppercut that sends the opponent upwards
Dash attack: Waluigi falls flat on his face while running

Neutral aerial: Waluigi swings his body like Wario does in his neutral aerial, the difference is that it has more range thanks to Waluigi's big body
Front aerial: An overhead swing with the tennis racket that can spike if it's hit at the right time
Down aerial: Waluigi spins himself and falls straight down, it works exactly like Greninja's down aerial
Back aerial: Waluigi does a kick backwards while spinning
Up aerial: This move is a swing above Waluigi's head using the tennis racket

Side Smash: Waluigi does an overhead swing with his tennis racket
Down Smash: Waluigi pulls off a break dance move that covers the two sides
Up Smash: Waluigi pulls his head down and then headbutt upwards, it has good vertical range and it can cover a platform. I thought it would be a funny way to reference Waluigi's big height compared to the other Bros by making him reach the platform.

Up special: A corkscrew that's similair to Wario's except it deals less damage but travels more distance.
Side special: Waluigi does his air swimming thing, this move has an active hitbox and it has diagonal directions.
Neutral special: Waluigi throws a tennis ball for a volley, if the player presses the button again at the right time then Waluigi hits the ball and it travels a good distance as a projectile. If he fails the button press then it just falls and does nothing. The interesting part about this move is that it's like Peach's turnip in the sense that Waluigi can pull out different items that he can use as a projectile such as sports items and what not, with the Bob-omb being the rarest but deadliest projectile.
Down special: Waluigi stomps the ground like how his assist trophy does. It's a bit like DK's down special except it can bury the opponent, also it can spike the opponent in the air.

Grab: A simple grab with his hand
Pummel: Waluigi kicks the opponent while grabbing them
Front throw: Waluigi uses the opponent as a tennis ball and hits them with the racket as he's going for a volley
Back throw: Just like the rest of the bros, Waluigi does a swinging throw
Down throw: Waluigi throws the opponent into the ground and starts stomping on them
Up throw: Waluigi kicks the opponent up on the air

Something I want to point out is that Waluigi's sidestep would be his moonwalking because it's funny and fits the dodge well.

Nice moveset I must said but I would add the whip from Mario strikers since it his only weapon and the thorns are kind of one of his gimmick.

This reminds me of when people wanted Daisy to have a sports-inspired moveset, which I always thought was kind of a bad idea. If Daisy ever gets de-echoed, I hope her moveset draws from Super Mario Land, with Super Balls and the Sky Pop and things like that. Maybe her Final Smash could incorporate Tatanga.

As for Waluigi, it's a damn shame that Psycho Waluigi isn't canon, because as it stands, all we have to work with are some goofy animations and disposable spin-off stuff. I do love the idea of his dodge being the moonwalk, though.

I rather have the assist trophy trailer, where waluigi come out of an assist trophy and, like, break the seal or I don't know what but that's make him a playable character or you see him making a waluigi slot on the roster menu. Glitchy moves are boring

A glitch idea sounds really fun. Kinda like a fourth wall breaker. Like maybe his Final Smash can be Waluigi coming towards the screen and plucking a stock off anyone caught in the attack. I think there's a lot of cool ideas there.

Waluigi is not Deadpool like he cannot break the 4th wall he is a cheater yes, not 4th wall breaker. His final smash can be a Bob omb shooter like the one from Mario power tennis opening. It would be kind of like snake's old final smash. And it would go faster and faster as waluigi begin to rage.

I wondered if the Link's awakening Amiibo can both give a spirit and a amiibo fighter to you like the mario wedding amiibos, if this was true, I personally think that a smash bros waluigi amiibo and the fighters pass 2 draft exists.

I think a fighter pass 2 is very likely and I would hope for waluigi to happen but I have a lot of doubts about it. And waluigi doesn't necessarily need an amiibo since he already got one with Mario party

Popping in to say Waluigi has my full support. He may not get his time to shine today, but I'm sure he'll eventually get into Smash. I mean, it's not as if Ultimate was his last chance. He'll continue to remain popular and will continue to make consistent appearances until the next game.

As for moveset, I'll be honest I've never been that much of a fan of utilizing just sports equipment, maybe except the tennis racket since Mario Tennis was his debut. Rather, I feel his moveset should draw from his special, weird abilities he has in the sports games. There's plenty of source material to pull from too: Whiskered Eggplant from Mario Superstar Baseball, midair swimming and Whirluigi from Mario Power Tennis, Moonwalking from Mario Tennis Aces, the weird mechanical arms he has in Mario Sports Mix, thorny vines from Mario Strikers Charged... there's so much to pull from, and offer tons of ways to differentiate from other fighters and make him a truly unique character. And it's not like Smash can't make deep pulls either, considering Piranha Plant's Poison Breath is taken from the Paper Mario series' Putrid Piranhas.

Furthermore, I feel a lot of his attacks and animations should be based on his personality. Look at King K. Rool as an example: he walks with pride and swagger, and flips a switch and runs on all fours like a deranged animal. He's constantly changing his fighting style, going from using Blunderbuss and Crownerang to using down throws and buries, to outsmart his opponent. He rejects any attacks thrown at his belly armor, and counterattacks with a big boxing glove smack. It's like he punishes any opponent for invading his personal, royal space. Who's to say that can't rub off on Waluigi? In addition to these weird abilities, he tries his best to cheat his way to victory. He could run around deceptively fast, and stop on a dime, opposite of Luigi's slippery traction. He could use his long limbs to outrange his sword-abusing opponents. He moonwalks past opponents to dodge their attacks, only to counter them with his own. His taunts and victory animations are degrading, as he aims to make the opponent miserable after he just KO'ed them. He could even have a funny crouch animation like some of the other characters. On the other side of the coin, he could call opponents cheaters when he ends up getting KO'ed. He could throw his hat on the ground and stomp on it for his "clapping" animation, refusing to cheer for the opponent when he should have won.

Waluigi would have zero respect for his opponents, and I think traits like that are what makes a character really fun. Again, look at newcomers like King K. Rool and Incineroar, they're brimming with so much personality throughout their moves and animations, and Waluigi's personality could be utilized greatly in this respect.

I agree with mama Luigi a moveset based on every spin off seems the most adequate for the guy but if waluigi have to wait until smash 6 that would mean he will not be with everyone and that's kind of disappointing in a sense because I would love to kick some joker's *** with waluigi

Pretty much.

If Waluigi were to get in, this likely will be the only time in which he gets to fight the entire Smash Veteran Cast. Im 99% sure that Waluigi vs Pichu will not happen in the next game.

I don't see why it's waluigi related
It's supposed to be Pushdustin's icon's mustache (he was a huge backer/promoter of bloodstained), his icon uses Waluigi's mustache, so they made a Waluigi-look-alike mustache and nose as an easter egg.

It's literally supposed to be a waluigi reference.

(though to be fair they made the mustache a bit bent like wario's and the nose orange, probably to avoid copyright)

PushDustIn's icon is Wario's mustache though.

In Bloodstained the nose references Waluigi while the mustache references Wario. It's pretty easy to tell that.

I made a mistake, it's not supposed to be a reference to Pushdustin, it's actually ProtonJon, he's the waluigi fan. he doesn't have waluigi as his icon but he is a waluigi fan and he did back/support bloodstained.

My bad everybody

I see so it's here because a waluigi fan support bloodstained? That's weird
When people back a project on Kickstarter they usually get rewards, with the reward being more substantial the more money is pledged. A certain tier of Bloodstained-supporters got costumes made for them as a reward.
