Frogger is a 1981 video game that debuted on arcade machines across the world. The game is highly regarded as a classic from the golden age of video-games, generally praised for its novel gameplay and theme. Frogger debuted in the same year as the impactful arcade classic, Pac-Man. By 2005, the franchise had sold over 20 million units. Frogger has made its way into pop culture, sparking competition within the video game industry. Frogger is one of the biggest icons in video-game history that would fit into Smash Bros. really well. I would love to see Sakurai pull of a creative move-set out of the character, just like what Sakurai did with Pac-Man with his move-set being an amalgamation of classic Pac-Man. An arcade match-up against Frogger vs. Pac-Man would be amazing! If Konami were to get a second or third character, Frogger would be the ideal choice!
Moveset and Playstyle
Neutral-B: Tongue Lash: Frogger quickly whips out his tongue to paralyze the opponent for a very short period of time that allows Frogger to attack freely. The tongue automatically homes at the opponent within its area. Can be rapidly used to paralyze multiple opponents. If abused too much, Frogger tires out and is vulnerable to attack.
Side-B: Thrust Jump: Frogger leans charges for a horizontal spin jump attack. The longer you charge, the greater the distance. When the move is active, Frogger can dodge by pressing the special button, and pressing B again allows Frogger to do a quick, but weak counterattack. If abused too much, Frogger tires out and is vulnerable to attack.
Down-B: Vehicle: Frogger summons a vehicle, avoiding the vehicle by jumping from behind. These vehicles range from powerful to weak: trucks, cars, buses, motorcycles, bicycles. The vehicle chosen is randomized. If Frogger is tired out when using this move, Frogger will end up being hit by the vehicle.
Up-B: High-Jump: Functions similarly Thrust Jump. You can jump a high vertical distance, spin-jump attack, be able to dodge in mid-air, and counter too. The special move does not have the weakness of tiring Frogger out, but if Frogger uses this move while in a tired state from using Neutral-B, the vertical distance travelled will be far lower.
Frogger would basically be an evading master in Smash, staying true to how Frogger plays in the arcade game. He can dodge-roll quickly, side-step quickly, a plethora of moves that help Frogger escape from the most tight situations. When Frogger successfully avoids an attack from an opponent, he is awarded stamina, which recovers his special moves back to its normal state. The weaknesses he would have is his weak attack power, being VERY lightweight, and being able to tire out if Frogger uses his special moves too much. In return, he is a character with masterful mobility. If I could name his play-style, he would be called the "Evasive Martial Artist".
Frogger is not a choice I expect, given the current circumstances with Simon Belmont and Snake seemingly becoming more likely with Vergeben's leaked information. But, I still want it to happen sometime in a future Smash game, or even this Smash Switch's DLC. If you are interested in this frog becoming playable in Smash, let me know and I will add you on the support list.
