Man I still haven't gotten over how cool this is.
My two most wanted things for Smash Switch were "ridley" and "no cuts"

They went above and beyond with "no cuts" giving us EVERYONE ever, and giving us lot's of changes and fanservice for the old ones.


Then thye give us Ridley in smash. Again, above and beyond.
Meta Ridley alt, the green pallette, and goddamn the moves

A command grab, fireballs, big hitboxes, tail pikes, and basically everything being cool as ****. This was like a perfect goddamn reveal.


I just wish it wasn't leaked so I could have been more hype but WHO GIVES A **** WE GOT RIDLEY AND THEY LOOK AMAZING.

Can I say how much I love that Sakurai pretty much put the announcement as the main event?

Like, Ridley STOLE the attention at the end. And also, the trailer went as a lot of people speculated it could go as a hypothetical trailer from the previous threads. Sakurai flat out LISTENED to us. If that does not tell you how much he cares, I don't know what to tell you, guys.

Also, love that moment with Ridley playing with Mario's hat. Both in character and awesome.

Ridley, you are one sadistic SOB. And I love you because of that, hehe.

(Inb4 someone does that but with a cup of salty tears of the haters, hehe...)

Honestly, what an unbelievable guy, that Sakurai~

I first came to you guys as a common doubter, simply putting two and two together to conclude that Ridley would look just too out of place. Smash 4's newcomers had constantly rocked my world as to what was needed to become a playable fighter. In my moment of disorientation, I huddled to you guys both in the hopes of validation, and just the very fact I thought the sky was falling. I can't believe we all participated in an all-out flame war over a single shadow back in the day; it's silly, looking back at it.

And now, after 17 years, it's finally over.

I really should've saved that DBS reference for you guys, because it's thanks to your unyielding passion that Ridley is finally playable. It's thanks to your love for one of Nintendo's most infamous villains that the impossible was made possible.
Today is a victory that the Smash community will never forget. Today, you proved the world that Ridley is not too big.

Heeeeyyy guys....

...

This is what it means to dream wide awake. Savor this joyous occasion my Ridley comrades. And to think, no need to formulate, draw pictures, post paragraphs of arguments. I think Sakurai simply had time during his reprieve (however brief it was) to dwell on the matter and have a change of heart.

Of all the reasons Ridley would finally become playable, it was because Sakurai genuinely wants to please his fans. I think another part of it is Sakurai's getting older, and maybe it's had an effect on him and he's become more empathetic towards us and our desires.

Then again, no Waluigi. Poor guys...

Didn't also say that Simon Belmont was going to be revealed there as well? I mean since we have Snake back I honestly have no doubt in my mind that they wouldn't add him, but he did say that he was going to be shown off there on the direct

Only one that was set was "ridley at E3"

Simon was a part of the leak, but not the most trusted source. Nor did it say he would be at E3. Just Ridley

I just love how amazing Ridley's trailer is. It is filled with horror tropes. The mood, the lighting, the darkness. Ridley stealthy killing Mega Man and Mario, just like an alien would do in the Alien franchise. Then, like a badass, already knowing her good old friend Ridley is behind her, Samus turns around. But even knowing it was Ridley, you can still see a slight glimpse of fear in her eyes. And then, as a finishing touch, Ridley spins Mario's cap around, because every good piece of horror has a bit of ridiculous humor included to shake things up.

That is art.

Gosh, I want a horror character so badly in Smash. Come on, Nintendo. Ask Konami for a Silent Hill character. Ask Capcom for Jill Valentine. Or use your forgotten Eternal Darkness IP for something and make Alexandra Roivas playable.

So much hype! Ridley looks very beastly and him twirling Mario's hat looking very sinister and sadisitic. I LOVE IT. Daisy's addition was good and the only blemish on this presentation was Waluigi being an AT again... But Ridley's inclusion made up for it immediately.

It's been forever since I posted on these boards and thrilled to be back. How are you guys doing?

I might be wrong, but if they added a Castlevania character, my bet would be on the face of the franchise, Alucard. Symphony of the Night was the "boom" of the franchise, what made it really popular. Just like Final Fantasy VII and we got Cloud.

Hey guys, it's been a while since I last posted around here. I initially started supporting Ridley during the buildup to Smash 4 and now we finally have him in Smash Bros Ultimate. Well, the game is really living up to its name at this point! Just a couple more newcomers like Rayman and K. Rool and I'd consider this game to be Super Smash Bros Perfection!

Also, is it just me, or does it look like Ridley just got back from a marathon run in the desert? He looks super dried out in his CSS art.

All the colors seem to be a little more muted/lighter in this game I feel like.

So, I had an account on here a long time ago, but forgot my everything to it. So I literally made a new account because of Ridley's reveal.

I'm like, in utter awe. To the point where it still feels like a freaking fever dream. But it's real, and it's Ridley. I'm riding this hype train into the sun!

Congratulations on seeing fruition for your years of effort. I can't say that Ridley was my top pick, but I did want him and I believe you all deserve him. Now, if we could only get another scaly part-time pirate in this game.

I'm so happy he's in, but he looks like he's decomposing lmao

Oi. One Dragon Ball joke at a time.
On a side note, someone at GameXplain captured this...
View attachment 148069


This one replaces her Dark Samus alt.
This can mean only one thing...
I would lose my sheet if Dark Samus was added as an echo fighter. By far my favorite Metroid villain.

On the subject, I wonder if she will be back in Metroid Prime 4. Would be weird to have a Metroid Prime game without... the Metroid Prime herself.

Who else here just looking forward to seeing how rediculous it looks when pichu grabs ridley? It's pretty much my number one concern right now.
Probably no crazier than Pichu grabbing Bowser.

Has anyone done a size comparison with Bowser? Is Ridley's hitbox bigger? GOD THAT FEELS SO WEIRD TO TYPE
