So to keep the discussion going, what would his stage and music be?
So I was thinking about a Hyrule/Lorule Castle stage that would have the stage switch between the two. In the Lorule version some of the platforms would be "decayed" and wouldn't work or something like that. Stage hazards could include monsters from the game and Yuga coming in to turn elements of the stage into paintings for a bit "burrying" anyone caught.

Well I guess I'll do the obligatory, "could Brave be our character?"

Honestly, its not completely unrelated to Ravio but not exactly a clear fit. In ALBW Ravio's character arc begins with him being too cowardly to stand up to Hilda and Yuga and by the end of the game he is able to stand between Link and Hilda potentially risking his life to protect her before finally standing up to her and telling her off. Because courage is a core element in both Ravio's character arc and in Zelda games in general the idea that the word Brave could be used to describe Ravio is not totally far-fetched.

The stats don't sound terribly unlike him either.

Of course none of this matters because it won't be him lol but fun to think about.

If I'm being honest I think the most likely candidate right now is Slime and that Erdrick shows up in his victory animation which is why his name is being tossed around so much.

As the owner of a Nabbit thread (unsure on whether it's in this forum too, could be just the Smash 4 DLC speculation one) I support all money-grabbing purple bunnies with hidden agendas whose answer to life is "fleeing",

As for Ravio himself, I'm actually working on an extensive moveset for him
Welcome! I'd love to compare movesets once you're done, mine is up a bit if you're curious but I love talking movesets with people.

Not a big supporter but I am open to it. It would be nice to finally get a Zelda newcomer.

If Ravio doesn't make it, I hope he would at least be a Mii Fighter costume. Maybe Mii Swordfighter costume with Tornado Rod as his "sword" would be a good fit. This is how I would customize Ravio Mii Swordfighter's specials.

B - Gale Strike (Tornado Rod shoots tornados)
Side B - Chakram (acting as boomerang)
Up B - Hero's Spin (since he is Link's counterpart in Lorule)
Down B - Reversal Slash (so you can pretend the wind blew away the projectiles)

hmm I hadn't considered that but now I will be terribly offended if we don't get a Ravio costume, it seems too perfect.

hey i found my old moveset for him

as the character you acquire most of your arsenal from he has a lot of items he can use (work in progress)
B: Ice Rod, drops a chuck of ice in front of him
B side: fire rod, send burst of fire straight ahead
B up: tornado rod, flys upwards damaging enemies with wind
B down: hammer, slams the ground in front of him

side smash: swings his money sack
up smash: close range blast from fire rod overhead
down smash: close range blast from fire rod

strong side: swings fire and ice rods in a pincer movement
strong up: swipe with ice rod over head
strong down: swipes the ground with ice rod

neutral air: sheerow circles him
forward air: swings fire rod forwards leaving trail of fire
back air: swings ice rod behind leaving tail of ice
up air: spins the tornado rod over head
down air: swipes the tornado rod downwards

dash: trps up dropping ruppes that damage characters
grab: hookshot

pummel: sheerow pecks grabbed character
forward throw: throws forward and strikes with boomerang
back throw: throws behind and strikes with one of many rods
up throw: throws up a shoots with arrow
down throw: drops to ground and hits with hammer

final smash: Sand Rod, Ravio use the sand rod to summon sand pillars all over the stage damaging foes and throwing them upwards

I like this one a lot, I love that we both had the same idea for his dash attack lol
