I've lurked this thread for months, but now I made a video to lend my support to the cause.
Chief Moveset Video
Dang, all the illustrations are definitely stepping up the whole "fanmade moveset" thing. The editing looked like that of a pretty large channel, too :bee:

Though, if the goal is to avoid making him too campy, the Gravity Lift idea might play out too much like Pac-Man's Hydrant or even Trampoline, given it'd be very effective to hide behind.

Being an FPS character, I am afraid he'd likely go the way of the Belmont as playstyles go... we've seen Sakurai has no qualms making projectile-heavy characters--even if it doesn't really make sense, like :ultbanjokazooie:--so it's hard for me to hope for an actual Shooter character not to play lame. But hey, :ultinkling: made it happen, so I guess you never know.

Love the weapon switching idea, by the way. It's a natural fit for Chief and it'd add a ton of variety!

Great video! I really enjoyed watching through it. Good ideas to make the moves different enough than other characters. The "gimmick" would seem pretty balanced too, with a way to contine to fine tune it as more gameplay data was gathered from players.

Now this is the thread I'm talking about. I'd have even taken him over Banjo. Dude is just hella iconic with amazing games.
Don't sleep on Banjo though; the original Banjo-Kazooie and Tooie are definitely worth playing if you have an N64 or Xbox. They're very mellow games full of simple pleasures and varied challenges. Also they have gnarly soundtracks.

That's a good point about the gravity lift. I didn't think about that, but I guess if it was implemented the way I pitched it then it'd be a wall that would shut out characters like Little Mac. Maybe Chief could toss it under him no matter what so that it puts Chief in an awkward position on stage or he'd just have the jetpack instead.


Thanks for watching the video, btw.

Oh don't get me wrong N64 is my favorite console of all time and I very much grew up with Banjo.

I just feel like even despite that, my time with Halo 3 brought me so many more memories with multiplayer.

Master Chief isn't happening. It is a pipe dream.

I would love it but we are going to get more lame, dumb characters like Joker and Terry. I also wouldn't be surprised if half of this new Fighter pass is 1st party only.
People were saying the same thing about Banjo & Kazooie and look what happen. Nintendo would be dumb if they at least didn't try once to approach Microsoft in securing Chief's rights for Smash.

I respect your opinion. Though I had much more memorable memories with the Banjo-Kazooie games.

Just to point out, Volbound's post was about 4 months ago. I doubt they want to still converse on that. ._.;

Not that I don't agree with you. Though I admit I don't have any real fond memories of B-K, as I barely played it.

Getting back to Halo, I did play mostly multiplayer, but I own a movie and have watched Red VS Blue overall. I haven't caught up with it all, but I love the series. Freaking hilarious. In all its polygonal glory.

I think most people's fondest Halo memories are in multiplayer, tbh. I'm hoping Halo Infinite takes it's single player to the next level, as an average Halo Campaign wouldn't look very good in a day where Titanfall 2, modern DOOM and the new Half-Life exist.

Infinite in general has so many variables floating around it - a new engine, half a decade since the last game, returning to the series' roots and almost total silence since it's announcement in 2018. July is gonna be wild.

New engine made development much easier and better according to them. Tbf, Halo 5 was kinda rushed. And there are plenty of examples of developers with poor reputation soaring up high. Guerilla Studio with Horizon Zero Dawn comes to mind. Rumor is that Infinite will be probably open world. I think we may see huge leap of jump and change like God of War.

I wonder whether MS intends to use Smash advertisement synergy.

A God of War style facelift could be huge for Halo. I wonder what other people would think of the idea. Of course, it'd have to be executed well, like anything, but Infinite could really go any way so I'm interested to see what 343's got.

Would Master Chief next logical step in evolution of third party inclusion?

Snake (first non-Nintendo character) > Sonic (mascot of Nintendo's first rival platform) > Cloud (non-Nintendo character, poster boy for the third-party exodus after the SNES) > Banjo (ex-Nintendo character that is now the property of a competing platform) > Master Chief (mascot of competing platform).
