Punch-Out, while no longer one of Nintendo’s flagship IPs, it’s still a very popular and iconic series. I always found very questionable how such a popular Nintendo icon like Little Mac only got the spot by the 4th installment in the Super Smash Brothers series, but it was thanks to the fans that he made it to the roster, at all. Still it feels like there’s something essential missing to really represent Punch Out well in Smash don’t you think? ...Oh I know, how about an antagonist?! There are so many good choices full of potential out there: King Hippo, Sandman, Piston Hondo, hell even Glass Joe would be cool to see. Punch Out is definitely worthy of a 2nd newcomer if you ask me, yeah it’s not a relevant IP anymore but since when was that ever a problem in the Smash Brothers series anyway?!
So which antagonist do you feel like has the most potential of all and is the most logical choice as not only an antagonist but also a 2nd Punch Out character for the roster?
