And as for Waluigi. The controversy of the death threats on Twitter aside, Waluigi no doubt got the biggest reaction amongst the initial wave of deconfirmations. News media reported about it, memed to hell and back, etc. When one character is shouted out loud at Nintendo enough and people like Reggie even answer questions and/or comments about it not long after. It should at least be in the back of our minds. Again, still a hurdle. But if we should get an assist promoted within the same game and not be an echo, Waluigi's pretty much first in line.
Again with this. :facepalm:

It was just two kids on Twitter threatening Sakurai with 9/11 references.

Here's an analogy to making Tails a pseudo-clone of Sonic by giving him only Sonic's special moves and final smash:

If I made moveset mods for both Goku and Vegeta, but I made Vegeta a pseudo-clone of Goku by only giving him a similar neutral special (Galick Gun would be cloned from Kamehameha) and Side Special (Ki Blasts for both of them), but the rest of Vegeta's moveset would be unique. It would make sense because Vegeta's Galick Gun is based on Goku's Kamehameha.

Same thing would go with making Tails a pseudo-clone of Sonic, Tails still has some moves cloned from Sonic.

Oh man I'm so happy to see that Tails still has alot of fans struggling for him, even after such hard times (spirit, mii costume, eesh!)
The second most iconic videogame sidekick is definetly a must have for Smash.

I have a question for you guys, since apparantly it's been quite an issue for third party series to get a second non-echo rep, do you think maybe Tails could be represented by his spinoff solo games, like Tails Adventures or Tails Skypatrol, leading him to have his own icon (kind of like Yoshi)? I'm guessing probably not tho.

Not for a whole moveset and definitely not for a new series category with the addition of his own series icon. It's two incredibly niche spinoff titles compared to how many Sonic games he's been in?

As far as moveset there's also nothing to really pull from in regards to Skypatrol.

Although spirits and mii costumes don't deconfirm, there will unfortunately still be a dozen more chances for Tails to not be promoted to playable.

I think 3rd party franchises are allowed to have non-echo non primary reps. And I think Tails would still be classified under the Sonic series.

Now I just created a new theory that assist trophy replacements may be introduced. Here are some green flags.

1, Sans is a mii costume, and Waluigi and Papyrus have similar proportions, thus if Waluigi gets released as a DLC fighter, papyrus will replace and mimic the Waluigi assist trophy when Waluigi is in battle.

2. Emerl isn't a spirit, but he wouldn't make a great playable character. And Knuckles being an assist trophy could mean that Tails will be a DLC fighter. So Tails's DLC spirit board might feature Emerl as a spirit. Just like Papyrus, Emerl and Bomberman similar proportions. Likewiswe, if Bomberman gets released as a DLC Emerl will replace and mimic Bomberman's assist trophy when Bomberman is in battle.

Neither of these things will ever happen. Think critically for once.

Tails is one of my most wanted characters! I made this.
"Sonic's moveset has since been fleshed out with further added moves from the series."
Which ones are those?
I'm just saying...

That's a lot of slots. Tails could slither his way in.

I mean if they are deliberately leaving out Mii costumes of Geno and Heihachi because they're coming/being considered as characters, that doesn't instil confidence for Tails still having his Mii costume from last game, unless that decision wouldn't have been made had the whole "more DLC" decision come earlier (perhaps Geno and Heihachi only missing after that decision could have been made?). Beyond that, we've still never had a proper non-Echo second character for a third party yet, Ken being the closest thing. Maybe they could go with making an Isabelle-level semiclone, but it's unprecedented that that much more work Isabelle required over an echo would suffice for a third party's second character who isn't as popular with Japan (and Sakurai?) as it is over here. Not to mention Arle Nadja might just take another SEGA slot if it gets one.

We were discussing which fanmade rules has yet to be broken, I mentioned Mii costumes being upgraded in the same instalment to which someone responded that it might be the most likely rule to be broken. I had to wonder.

That's perfectly fine by me.

Tbf, Tails's wasn't specifically made for Ultimate, and would tie into the theory of them only deciding more DLC after E3 and then removing Geno's and Heihachi's costumes in the presentations in case they wanted to make them, not removing Tails's cause it was pre-E3?

That's only if we get any secondary unique 3rd party reps that ain't a Echo, which I see is highly unlikely at the moment. "Sigh" So I guess not only we won't get any unique secondary 3rd party characters, but Nintendo characters as well as the imaginary rule or thought right now is only 3rd party protagonists and mascots can get in as DLC.

We would have similar doubts about say, ANY second rep for a third party prior to Richter, right? I'd at least say the door is kinda open to third party semiclones seeing as Ken was practically that if still an echo, though again, Tails's Mii costume returning complicates things for him at best?

Honestly, Eggman is the one Sonic character without a damning AT or costume, and might even have just as valid a spot as second Sonic rep as Tails; the only problem is whether the OTHER Sega "Mean Beans" person gets the look instead, especially in terms of Japanese popularity.
Pretty much just the running kick and the splits kick lol.
Where are those from, may I ask?

I don't think I've heard of that one.

Like what game? Nowhere in particular...but Fox did both of those before Sonic as far as Smash is concerned.

A running punch would've also worked and it actually comes from a game he's been in.


How do I get that Mii?

I don't know if it's already been mentioned here, or if it means anything but...
Tails has only appeared as part of the cover for majority of the events that increase the amount of spirit items you earn (SP, EXP, Rematch, Shuffle All etc.)
but Tails has never appeared in a spirit board event as of now, despite having a spirit battle already in the game.

Again, this probably doesn't mean anything, but it's still worth mentioning, I would assume that someone in the development team must really like the character.

So you're lowkey implying that this increases his chances as DLC somehow?

Hello everyone. Count me in as a supporter for Tails! I’ve recently made a moveset for Eggman and figured one for Tails could work just as well based on it, seeing as it was so heavily based on Eggman’s SA2 Eggwalker, so here’s an incredibly unconventional moveset Tails moveset:

BCA60840-F3AB-4D83-B7A0-338BC59DFAAE.jpeg

I’d imagine most people wouldn’t think of this when they think of Tails in Smash, but I figured it was worth a shot and I really liked the idea of him in the Tordano III! Also, it 100% ensures that he won’t be a clone of Sonic, or at the least, he won’t be “too similar.”

Anyways, here’s a link to the image on Flickr, since Smashboards crushes these images to the point of being unrecognizable: https://www.flickr.com/photos/184893183@N07/49213922031/in/dateposted-public/

I think the main problem with this is using a machine like this would fit more so an Eggman moveset (Which you mention you already made) rather then Tails. Tails being in a Mech was in only SA2 and while I get the concerns of Tails being at least partly a clone that's kind of what should be expected since he is essentially Sonic's Luigi. We want Tails to at least partly play like Sonic but still have a bit of Luigified traits with a different special or two (And the A attacks making use of Tails' tails as weapons. Ex: The up throw could remain the same basic function as Sonic's but of course instead of landing on Sonic's spiky back Tails flips so he can catch the opponent into his spinning tails that multi hits) and of course his famous ability to fly. Because that's how most people recognize how Tails worked.

I understand. I only really made this moveset as a fun idea, since they play so similarly to each other in SA2 that I figured trying my hand at a tails version. If tails were to ever get in, he would undoubtedly he on foot, with maybe the exception of a few moves in the mech or something similar.

Hey Everyone, long time no see! Idk if ANY of you will remember me but hey it's nice too be back. I'm honestly surprised too see the forum still alive, but it's honestly nice too see more people come on board with the idea of Tails in Smash.

Anyway, how's everyone doing? And also, if you're new here, what made you want Tails too join Smash? I'd love too find out!

Put me down as a Tails supporter. If we're playing the super specific "Which characters from already represented third-party franchises should get into Smash?" game, he's second only to Chun-Li.

I like him as a Sonic semi-clone so he plays similarly to the 2D games (he should definitely be able to spin dash, for instance), and his home stage should definitely be Casino Night Zone!
