Hello everyone!
I believe Maxwell would be a great 3rd party fighter for Switch Smash because he is a unique and known character, but is often not thought of as a character that could be in Smash Bros.

There are also a variety of moves they could make for Maxwell because of the game he comes from

Maxwell is one of my most wanted third party characters. A summoner moveset would be amazing.

I might toss together a moveset later.

I think he could summon weapons sort of like Shulk's Manado arts
Actually, I had a thought about this.
If we don't get a Maxwell character in the next Smash, it would be possible to re-skin Shulk to be him.
Ex: Monado Art's = Notepad. Jump would equal jetpack, etc.
The problem is that Shulk uses a sword in almost all of his moves and it just wouldn't be Maxwell :/
I'm all for a Maxwell in 5mash.
also, moderators, apologies if this counts as a necro. It was in the support directory though

I wonder how he would work?
Maxwell's been a pipe dream of mine for awhile. I've imagined him as a summoner, similar to Villager. Scribblenauts' whole thing is make anything you can think of, anything else would be a disservice.

Anyways, I support him. I think Thomas Jefferson is more likely, but you never know.

Have not seen how nuGargos works.
So basically, in Killer Instinct, Gargos can spend meter to summon one of two minions: Izzik and Dretch. Izzik is slow moving and only dies in two hits, but he makes up for it with reach and anti-air capability with a trident. Dretch is faster and dies in three hits, and does a belly flop on the opponent. Gargos also has the ability to command his minions to either attack the opponent or stay close to him to protect him. After ten seconds of being active, Izzik and/or Dretch will have purple smoke surrounding them. This is an indicator that Gargos can issue a Kill Command, a special attack that is more powerful than the usual auto-attacks they do. Izzik will perform a top spin that deals multiple hits while Dretch jumps really high before bellyflopping on the opponent. Both minions can be out simultaneously.

TL;DR: Gargos can summon two minions that he can command to either protect him or attack the opponent.

I would imagine that if Maxwell makes it in, he could take a few cues from Gargos' minions, minus the Kill Command.

Sribblenauts has come back from the dead recently so there's hope.

I made a specials moveset for him. I may expand on it soon.

Neutral B: Adjective. Maxwell applies an adjective to either him or an opponent. If applied to him it acts like one of Shulk's Monado arts, but applied to an enemy it's a nerf.

Side B: Drive-Through. Maxwell summons a vehicle at random to run away or into battle. There are multiple possibilities with varying speed, power, and special abilities.

Up-B: Magic Globe. Maxwell uses his sister's magic globe to teleport back onto the stage. after a second or two he disappears and reappears in a swarm of yellow light. It's near identical to Zelda's up B

Down B: Wall. Maxwell summons a wall. It can be attacked and if hit into an opponent it does huge damage and breaks their shield near instantly, and it can also be used as a platform. It takes about 15 seconds to despawn and only one can be active at a time.

Also is the OP still here?

The possibilities are pretty much endless with this guy. I can totally see Sakurai making him into a super gimmicky fighter, which I approve.

If you think about it, Maxwell would've survived the WoL trailer with ease.

1. He has the globe. Most of the characters with teleports survived a little longer than the rest. Even if he didn't have the other factor, he would've stood a slim chance.

2. Adjectives. He could just apply "invincible" to himself and he'd be fine. Not to mention he could just "gone" Galeem.

They'd probably have him drop his pencil or something to keep him from appearing OP. Still, he'd more-than-likely fare better than most since his creativity would allow him to block off some of the beams.

*sigh* I’ve been thinking about this for a while and you guys have convinced me I’m now officially on the bandwagon for maxwell in smash.

I kind of tried to bury my want for Maxwell along time ago since I thought he could never get in Smash, but with how crazy and unpredictable speculation has been getting lately I might as well revive my support for one of my favorite DS series characters.

I'm currently working on a move set for Maxwell, which is harder than it sounds since he has UNLIMITED POTENTIAL. Figuring out a way to encapsulating that potential into a Smash move set will take some creative thinking. Either way his recovery has to involve the winged polka-dot bathtub.

What about Sakurai's recent appearance in a gaming tournament in japan

https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/sakurai-teases-new-smash-bros-dlc-fighter/


Now take this with a grain of salt. Translating languages is always tricky because not every word directly has a counterpart. Meaning some of the meaning can be lost. Anyways he may mean that its a character not a lot of the world will recognize OR he literally means the entire world doesn't know who the "fighter" is. As in Who is DLC 5. Only Nintendo/smash's dev team know.
