Him and every other fanbase, but that's not the point. Roy and every other cut past veteran now receive support not to be given a Smash incarnation like a newcomer, but for the return of their old Smash incarnation specifically. That's not going to be jettisoned by Sakurai for Roy specifically just because it'll hurt Roy fans' feelings when fans throw hate at the character for a few days max. about him being a second Marth derivative.
Roy detractors are the worst anti-fans of any character in the entire Smash Bros. fanbase bar none. No one else comes close. They have consistently been proven wrong time and time again, yet never admit to themselves they were wrong.
They were wrong on Sigurd being planned instead of Roy.
They were wrong on Intelligent Systems forcing Roy on Sakurai, instead of Sakurai choosing Roy.
They were wrong about Roy not being planned to return for Brawl.
They were wrong about FE6 bombing in Japan.
They were wrong about FE6 being unpopular in Japan.
They were extremely wrong about Roy being unpopular in Japan.
So when Roy does end up being Luigi-fied, what will the Roy detractors do? Probably cry some more like always.
The fact is that they are the most consistently wrong and fervent liars of any facet of the entire Smash Bros. fanbase.
