This is the dream ;_;7 Hopefully he makes it, because I don't think he'll have another chance at revival again if he doesn't get into Ultimate. I'll fight to see him return regardless, but my hopes wouldn't be very strong.
That's what we all said in the smash 4 Ridley thread.

Understandable, but at least Ridley and the Metroid series as a whole has some modern day relevance.

Super Mario RPG, especially with the death of its successors... not so much. On top of the fact that Geno is not a first party and is, in fact, held by a company that held bad blood with Nintendo for a long time... yeah, it's a little harder to feel encouraged that he'll have a chance post-Ultimate.

I think his chances for Ultimate are quite good, though, which is a great thing :drflip:

ETA: Fun thing that gave me hope for my boy and the legions of hateful anti-fans he tends to have, too (namely the ones who harass people about it instead of agreeing to disagree): IntroSpecktive tweeted that he'd be fine with any Smash addition that wasn't Waluigi or Geno, and a loooooot of the responses were like, "Aw, why not? It's okay if you don't, but I think he's cool and would be a fun addition." What few comments there were about a toxic fan base were, for the most part, refuted.

It's just nice to see people standing up for Geno and his fans, for once. I expected droves of... well, the usual Twitter stuff when it comes to Geno, so that was a pleasant surprise.

Idk I think something with Geno is being considered internally at Nintendo even if it's not just an SSBU inclusion. If you would have said this a few years ago I would have agreed but the fact that Nintendo themselves have referenced Geno on social media and that there was discussion about the character at Nintendo's headquarters makes me think the idea of him making a comeback has at least been discussed. At this point they can see that the character does have a significant amount of popularity. The mii costume in Smash 4 is the biggest proof of that and they fact that they keep bringing him up every once and awhile likely to gauge reception I see as a positive thing. When that comeback will be I have zero clue but I think as long as the character gets visible support I think we'll keep seeing more and more attention given to him by Nintendo.

How About if Nintendo makes a SEGA Fighter Pass

1. Kazuma Kiryu
2. Vyse
3. NiGHTS
4. Amigo
5. Arle Nadja
Literally just missing Beat and it would be perfect. Replace... I guess Amigo with him?

How about if they make a Mario RPG fighter pass

Geno 4 times but also Mallow.
Heeeeeey... at least replace one of those Genos with Jonathan Jones... and heck, another one with Boshi for Zinith Zinith :yoshi:

Very good points. I hope you're right! I'll never stop fighting to see him come back!!

Who else is listening to this since the Video Game Awards are soon?

Posting the superior version.

Replace Vyse with The Magician from House of the Dead and replace Amigo with Ristar and it's perfect.

On the other hand, Sakurai had said that Ridley wouldn't work in smash.

My friends, I come baring a gift

I can just imagine the narrator now over Sakurai's voice, giving us a history lesson.

Sakurai/Narrator: "That's right. After a long absence, Geno makes his long-awaited return in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate as a playable character. He made his debut in the 1996 game Super Mario RPG, alongside five party members: Mario, Peach, Bowser, and Mallow. Though we are unsure where Mallow ran off to. *audience laugh*
Players first meet Geno within the Forest Maze, where they are tasked off following Geno to escape the maze
."
(maybe Sakurai could make a joke about how without Geno we would be lost in the maze)

I think he would also mention the Mii costume and maybe how other characters have been upgraded into playable characters from that game like K Rool and Isabelle. I kinda ran out of ideas but I think Sakurai would go on to talk about the Bowyer fight and show off the scene where you meet Geno, saying his name is hard to pronounce. Maybe even make another joke where they weren't sure what to name the character. After that he might mention that he's a warrior from Star Road, and how he's a possessed doll et cetera.

He will be taking the place of Duck Hunt :ultduckhunt: on the picture. I'll be doing a first come, first serve, so it'll be in this order:
Griselda as :ultzelda:
SonicSmasher1 as :ultsonic:
Spatulo as :ultfalcon:
Shotostar as :ultfox:
Catsforlife as :ultmewtwo:
Franco as :ultdarksamus:
Valkiri as :ultmegaman:
JDC as :ultsamus:
Hot as :ultwolf:
Earl as :ultpikachu:
Plank as :ultridley:
Blankit as :ultrob:
Convoy as :ultsimon:
Ray as :ultlucina:
Zinith as :ultyoshi:
RingJ5 as :ultchrom:
Adam as :ultmetaknight:
NintendoKnight as :ultike:
Tipper as :ultmarth:
WaniiZ as :ultlucas:
Wish as :ulticeclimbers:
Random Scrub as :ultjigglypuff:
Myself as :ultkingdedede:

Each "stock icon" will have differences to fit the profile picture. For example, Franco's will also have Shadow, so if you'd like something different, now is the time to get comfortable with your avatar.
Could you add me to that? I wish to be placed over Mii Brawler and you can use my avatar.

What I'm about to do is write the most important post in my 15 years here and, no, it's not the Big Ass Geno post. I want to come clean and this has been weighing heavily on me for awhile. Some of you already know where I'm going with this but it needs to be said. A lot of people have been hurt in the last year and, after asking many of those people that have been hurt the most for permission, we decided to take the following action. It's merciful but a lot more than I originally. Several people talked me down from sharing the whole report that I mention in the following screenshots because, again, we're giving mercy a go, even if it's begrudgingly. So, again, I'm sorry for what has transpired in the past year.

Fatmanonice Fatmanonice honestly, I just hope at this point that both Paragon and you can get through all of this huge mess as soon as possible.

Paragon is legit too much of a good person to have to be affected by all this mess, and slowly you have proven to be quite a person of good heart after the support you gave me back on Discord when all was getting worse and your motivation to keep posting here even after what happened days ago.

Both of you deserve a huge break from all those problems.
