Dam BowserKing already stole my joke.

Abstain. I don't know anything about the Yakuza series. btw I'm probably gonna abstain on a lot of the characters in this rotation. Not a lot of names I'm familiar with.

Prediction: de Blob - 0.88%

Noms: Concept: Contra rep x5

At first I thought this was a weird option. Then as I read other posts, i found out he was actually a decently requested character. Cool. Sega works well with Nintendo and the Yakuza games sell well in Asia, so it turns out there actually is a case for him.


Want: 30%
I don't really know who this is or anything about the game series, but an actual hit man would be a cool thing to see in smash.

Actually Kiryu isn’t a hit man, he beats the ever living **** out of people, but he’s canonically never killed anyone. A major plot point of Yakuza 0 is Kiryu trying to prove that he wasn’t a murderer.

Yeah, because who dies from being forced a handful of nails violently slammed into the mouth, having one's face used to literally destroy a urinal before being dropkicked out the window? It's as believable as Batman having never killed anyone despite leaving them hanging upside down for hours and the like... I love it!

Want: 90%

Chance 50%

I want him because his series feels like Sega poured their identity from the Dreamcast era into his series, so much of the music and aesthetic just scream Dreamcast even as recent as Yakuza 7.

There's legacy behind him, good moveset potential and a good stage lined up for him.
I think if Sega were to get another character he's next in line, because the Yakuza series is one of Sega golden series nowadays alongside persona and Sonic. Which are already in smash.

I think the only thing he has against him is that I bet Nintendo would be apprehensive in including a character from a series about the Yakuza, though even then the tone of the series is around the same as Metal gear and Snake got in just fine so there probably isn't a problem there.

Besides he's already shown up in a crossover with franchises that are playable in smash, project X Zone has Street fighter, Resident Evil, Megaman, Virtua fighter, Fire emblem, Xenoblade and even Tekken so I don't think the parties involved would care.

Tell that to the guys he threw into the Road during the car chase scenes in Yakuza zero, 1 and 2. A lot of them exploded lol

With the Yakuza games, you kind of have to have a suspension of disbelief with the resilience of normal humans. A good number of the heat actions would kill people, but no one ever dies in the fights. Like take that mini-boss guy you have to fight before Kuze in Yakuza 0, you violently knock him unconscious multiple times, bash his head into a urinal and then drop kick him out of a 5+ story building, yet despite this he doesn't die and shows up later in the story.

With how resilient people are 90% of the time in the series, I wouldn't be surprised if they survived the explosions as unrealistic as that may be.

Crazy how true this is. If there's one living franchise that embodies the more adventurous, high-tech yet still offbeat spirit of Dreamcast-era Sega, Yakuza is it.

Amaterasu
18.17% Chance - 60.00% Want
Last time we rated her she got 18.36% chance and 61.77% want. Nearly the same scores, so it's safe to say that the announcement of more DLC hasn't changed how people feel about her.
Winner of predictions was warpenguin55 warpenguin55 with a precise 18.00%

Monster Hunter
10.75% Chance - 37.33% Want
First time we rated them they got 31.06% chance and 46.21% want. This was in the early days of DLC, before Joker's release. While the base game inclusion of Rathalos and the absence of the Mii Costume were big question marks, at that point it appeared that if DLC was going to be all third parties then MonHun had its foot in the door. Last time we rated them they got 12.21% chance and 31.88% want. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. This was right after E3, when Resident Evil and Phoenix Wright were seen as the undisputed frontrunners for the inevitable Capcom spot. Now Resident Evil is gone - which means being a big franchise doesn't help, killing one of MonHun's pros - but Dante is back to take RE's frontrunner spot; and we went through an entire Pass without a Capcom rep, making everyone more unsure. Add Byleth, who many said steps on the Hunter's turf moveset-wise, and that's a bad recipe for this character.
Winner of predictions was GoodGrief741 GoodGrief741 with 10.22%. Anecdotally, I also won the last rating for Monster Hunter, so it appears I got myself a lucky charm.

Freddy Fazbear
4.31% Chance - 17.48% Want
Winner of predictions was Icedragonadam Icedragonadam with 4.55%

I won't list who has extra noms because all three who gained them already had some so if you have them you probably know already.

The Deceased: (I opted to move the Doom Slayer to here, even though we did do a rating, since many said he was out).
  1. Doom Slayer (2.86% Chance, 44.15% Want) | Interview
  2. Ring Fit Trainer (90 Nominations) | Spirit Event
  3. Shovel Knight (5.03% Chance, 48.71% Want) | Interview
Takeaways: Freddy actually did better on want than I thought he'd do. I was expecting something far below Urshifu. Oh well, down the line, Bubsy will pull that off... right? Amaterasu may be seen as not holding a candle to Dante or Wright in terms of chance, but when it comes to want she's no slouch, definitely she's the pipe dream Capcom character (relative to Dante and Wright, the traditional frontrunners, not in the pipe dream tier). Meanwhile, Monster Hunter has seen better days.

Gonna double abstain today. I have some basic knowledge on the Yakuza series, but nowhere near enough to give a proper rating, I feel.

Nomating Concept: New Zelda character x5

Not gonna do any predictions today.

Predict: 0%
Idk who Kiryu is and that should tell you what I think. At least Terry and Mai represented an entire console. Maybe he has some popularity in Japan, I wouldn't know and it doesn't affect my opinion.
Want: 0%
As I said, I don't know who he is. I'm not trying to come off as rude or anything, I just don't know this man.
I nominate Alucard? x5

There's many good posts explaining who Kiryu is and the series he comes from. Why not give them a read?

Aside from that, if you don't know about a character and you don't want to rate them, you can abstain. Otherwise you can still rate, but three sentences where you just say you don't know anything about the character doesn't give me much to work with.

Chance: 0%

He‘s a WAAAY obscure character. Not really sure he’d be high on anyone’s priority list.

Want: 1%
I’m somewhat familiar with de Blob, as I owned the game on Wii back when it was new. However, I’d only REALLY play him for unique moveset potential and not much else.

Crypto: 5%

That one game that had about 20 ads a day on Nickelodeon.

Chance: 0.01%
THQ has had a ton of financial issues over the past few years and de Blob's only recent relevance was a port to modern consoles in 2017. I really don't see Nintendo going out of their way for this.

Want: Abstain
Never played de Blob so I won't comment.

THQ Nordic's very own Blob

Chance: 0.50%

I'm scratching my head as to why Nintendo would choose this character. His games got ports to the Switch which helps out a little, but this character is a bit too obscure and I've never heard anyone request him. There is honestly not a lot to say. With only 6 more slots left, it feels like it's too late to add someone this minor.

Want: Abstain

Never played the games.

Prediction: Crypto - 5%

Oh ****, that's where I know this character from!

Mr Blob
Chance 0 - No release since 2011 and not relevant at all. And also not requested at all and doesn't have much impact overall in gaming. Really can't see this happening and cant think of a single reason as to why it would happen either.

Want 20 - I wouldn't take a ton of offense to it or anything. That being said, I don't really want this either. There are loads of other characters I want first.

Blob
Chance: 2%
Blob's chances could be better tbh. His games came out during the Wii's lifespan, just to give a time frame on how old he is. Both his games did get switch ports though, so Nintendo is clearly aware of his existence. The biggest issue with Blob is that I don't think he'd get the kind of sales Nintendo wants in. He's in no way deconfirmed, but it would really be a questionable choice

Want: 10%
Blob could be a cool pick. There are a lot of characters that I would rather have before him. I do think he could be a cool assist trophy though.

Prediction: Crypto 3%

The drawing hero from Drawn to Life could be a good pick (Sparky, I think he’s officially called? Correct me if I’m wrong).

Also, on the topic of de Blob; I was watching cutscenes for the second game, and…
JESUS, this game is dark.

Der Blob, wie er in die Welt kam
(This is simultaneously the lamest and most obscure joke I've ever made but kudos to anyone who gets the reference)
Chance: 0%
Yeah, I'm not seeing the timeline in which Nintendo looks at this guy and figures they might as well put him in over... Well, anybody. De Blob isn't really remembered that much nowadays, despite getting two of its games ported to the Switch. THQ - well, THQNordic - isn't the biggest Western dev and I'm really not seeing them getting a character in over the likes of Activision-Blizzard, Ubisoft, and even EA and Rockstar. Even if they did get a rep, I think Darksiders, Destroy All Humans, and Red Faction are bigger series of theirs - not to mention Saints Row, which is simultaneously their biggest franchise and the least likely to get in. So yeah, this isn't like, Chrono Trigger or Okami getting a character and blindsiding everyone.


Want: 0%
First off, I got nothing against de Blob, far from it. It sounds right up my alley and I'd like to play it someday. I just expect a certain caliber of third party character and sadly this one is not up to snuff. But hey, kudos to whoever nominated them. I like to see characters like this get discussed, even briefly; if nothing else, it teaches the rest of us about a cool game we might not have known about.

Gonna abstain, though I don't see him as a likely choice, especially when we only have six slots left. He does have some recency with his Switch ports but with the lack of fan demand or commercial potential, I just don't know why Nintendo would choose him. He's not impossible, but is extremely unlikely.

Well, you care, so it doesn't matter to me if anyone doesn't.
Sorry I don't burn money on dusty consoles and games that objectively aren't relevant anymore.

Uhhh... Weren't you talking about Yakuza? Because that series is still getting games and it's on, like, every console after the PS2.

Regardless, that's now off-topic, the day's changed, so please keep discussion focused on today's character.

Do not look up this animation called Splatoon meets de Blob, please just don't
Chance: 0%
While his games were ported to modern systems not too long ago, Blob just hasn't been relevant since the last generation of consoles. The games did decently critically and sales wise back then but after the liquidation of THQ have faded into niche territory. All the people abstaining on him here should give away he's been mostly forgotten about. Makes him no prime candidate for DLC. Don't have a clue about his status in Japan but I'll asume it's just like every other western platformer not named Crash Bandicoot. Might not even be localised.


Want: 35%
It's been a long time since I last played the games. I remember really liking them as a kid tho having a bad experience with the final boss of the first game. Might give them another spin eventually. If the gameplay doesn't hold up then the aesthetics certainly do. I'll admit, having little legacy and current relevance does mean he probably doesn't belong on the roster. A spirit would fit him better. There are other third-parties I'd choose over him but if he'd by any chance actually get in, a part of me would be gleeful.
Holding out for de Blob 3. He definitely deserves another chance.

Do not look up this animation called Splatoon meets de Blob, please just don't
Chance: 0%
While his games were ported to modern systems not too long ago, Blob just hasn't been relevant since the last generation of consoles. The games did decently critically and sales wise back then but after the liquidation of THQ have faded into niche territory. All the people abstaining on him here should give away he's been mostly forgotten about. Makes him no prime candidate for DLC. Don't have a clue about his status in Japan but I'll asume it's just like every other western platformer not named Crash Bandicoot. Might not even be localised.


Want: 35%
It's been a long time since I last played the games. I remember really liking them as a kid tho having a bad experience with the final boss of the first game. Might give them another spin eventually. If the gameplay doesn't hold up then the aesthetics certainly do. I'll admit, having little legacy and current relevance does mean he probably doesn't belong on the roster. A spirit would fit him better. There are other third-parties I'd choose over him but if he'd by any chance actually get in, a part of me would be gleeful.

The Blob

Chance: 10%. While he is very obscure, this game has the power to make obscure characters more popular. It worked on Ice Climbers, Marth, Pit and Duck Hunt, so it could work for the Blob as well. Competition is most likely going to defeat him, but there could be a chance for him to be playable, in the near of far future.

Want: 50%. He has some unique concepts, and he could be fun to play as. But since I don't know too much, due to said obscurity, I'm just going to say that this game has the power to make this franchise more popular. That is all I'm going to say about this.

Prediction: Crypto (10%)

Noms: 2 for New Zelda Rep and 3 for Concept: returning stages

ARMS CHARACTER COMING TO SMASH!

ASSIST TROPHY PROMOTIONS ARE 100% OFFICIAL!

Ok scratch that last part since the character technically hasn't been revealed, but yeah I think it's gonna happen.

So with that surprise announcement we now have 5 more characters to go. You're free to maybe say your thoughts on the new character but keep the rating mainly about The Blob today. Either tonight or tomorrow morning will be Direct mini reactions.
