My defense for "it's too inappropriate" or "we cant have real guns" would be to take a look at Bayonetta and Snake, both of which are from more serious games. Calling TF2 a serious game would be a bit of a stretch as well, bearing in mind there is literally a fish as a weapon. Either way, I think that the game often described as the gateway to PC gaming, deserves a place in smash.
Real quick tangent: I'm a pyro main, if pyro were to be in smash, cool, but I think the heavy is more likely, being the face of the game, I want to be slightly reasonable.
Back on topic, TF2 made a MAJOR impact in the gaming world, and being close to 11 years old and still having a dedicated fanbase, is rare to say the least. TO bring in a character that has an art style very reminiscent of the 2000s, would be a dream come true.
Anyway, I have a moveset, (kind of, its more of a mess of notes) that I have prepared. Including a couple taunts and a stage idea. It needs work, but I want to see if anyone agrees, disagrees, or what, anyway, here's my idea:
Jabs, the left and right click with his melee with a finishing crit

Up air shotgun

Down air, rain with minigun

Forward air - double punch

Back air - Uppercut

Dash is put on GRU and dash attack is hulk smash



Neutral B Minigun hold b to charge, the longer you hold the longer you’ll shoot, little knockback, rapidfire bullets, slow move speed

Up B Killing gloves of boxing crit uppercut

Side B Shotgun, limited ammo, shoots three bullets 1 up 1 straight 1 down, works similar to in game

Down b- throw either sandvich, dalokohs, second banana, or buffalo steak each with different properties


Jump and crouch are from in game


Taunts, shotgun taunt

POW

KGB taunt

Minigun taunt


Costumes based on other classes and hi classic form


2fort as a stage(middle with the bridge and both forts also as a reference to tf classic make the roof breakable and restorable, you can KO by knocking him in to the forts through the bottom part or top part or sky ko also the other classes can appear as hazards)

Victory theme- TF2 theme

Honestly, I don't see this happening since the game wasn't even released in an Nintendo platform. At least Cloud has some games that were released in the Nintendo platforms, even if most of them are just spin-offs.

But I still support, nonetheless. TF2 was one of the games I played on Steam and I'm still playing it to this very day.

I mean, if Half-Life 2 and Portal could run on the NVIDIA Shield TV, which has similar hardware to the Switch, it could happen, and if Valve is down for that of course, I could see TF2 getting the same treatment. I want those games on the Switch anyways, so I want to support the Heavy.

I never realized how much I wanted this until today. Support all the way.

Doomguy46 Doomguy46 If you are still active I would recommend adding some pics of heavy as well as a support list to the original post.

As a longtime fan of Team Fortress 2, I would definitely support anything from it appearing in SSBU. Sure the Demoman and Soldier have far more moveset potential than the Heavy, but the Heavy is largely seen as the face of TF2. Plus it would be nice to see another super-heavyweight character added to the game, especially one with more projectiles than King K. Rool. TF2's art style already fits in quite well in the Super Smash Brothers setting, so that's not an issue either. Gabe Newell is also a bigger fan of Nintendo than people know, with the guy citing Super Mario 64 as one of the best games ever made. Granted Valve and Nintendo haven't really done any interactions that I can think of.

While I'd argue even characters like Doomguy and Scorpion have a higher chance of getting in than anything from TF2, I would still love it if Heavy ever made it in. Oh and there's also the issue of Heavy's voice actor getting older and struggling to do the voice of the character (although not as bad as Demoman), along with other decisions like Valve maybe wanting something from DOTA 2 instead since I know the guy who made all of the "Meet the Team" videos no longer works for Valve anymore. Heavy's got a lot against him, but I won't lie that the character is up there on my wishlist.

Also here's a video someone made on if he ever did get in, which I thought was cool:

I think if I made a list of I don't actually want since they have no Nintendo history, but secretly would be pretty stoked to see, Heavy would be on that list. But as as a decade long Scout main I'd prefer Scout to get in lol.



...Also Clap-trap and Handsome Jack.

I support. Even though the only Valve content on Nintendo platforms has been Portal crossovers, this is something I always thought would be great to see.

So someone made a fan made render of Heavy and it looks really good:

Doomguy46 Doomguy46 Maybe you can put this image at the beggining of the OP. Also you should put the supporters list in the OP as well.

Got bored so I came up with Spirit battle ideas and skills based on the other classes:
Scout - Ness in Blue alt costume with Home Run Bat Equipped. Primary Attack Spirit that increases Battering Items Damage.
Soldier - Snake in Red alt costume that prefers Side B and Forward Smash. Primary Attack Spirit increasing Foot Attack Damage (think Mantreads).
Pyro - Samus in Blue alt costume with Superspicy Curry permanently active. Primary Attack Spirit that increases Fire Attack Damage.
Demoman - Ganondorf in his Grey alt costume that uses Smash Attacks more often and resists Explosive Damage. Primary Defense Spirit that increases Sword Attack Damage (this one was hard to come up with).
Engineer - Mario in Builder Outfit with an increase in ranged Damage and a Heavy that appears after a while. Primary Defense Spirit that increases Electric Attack Damage.
Medic - Dr. Mario in Blue alt costume with a Heavy teammate. Dr. Mario heals over time and tends to avoid conflict. Support Spirit that gives Critical Immunity.
Sniper - Link in Red alt costume that primary uses neutral B and has increased Damage with Ranged Weaponry. Support Spirit that increases Projectile Damage.
Spy - Invisible Shulk in Blue alt costume that prefers Side B. Also starts with a Poké Ball that always summons Ditto. Support Spirit that Jams an Opponents Final Smash Meter (basically Sapping it)

I chose not to use Heavy for any of the Battles (except as a teammate) simply because he didn't fit any of the ideas I had in mind.

Very cool, okay so let's do what the spirits would do. Of course some of these could also be primary spirits but I'll just list their secondary spirit ideas.
Scout - Double jump
Soldier - Projectile damage
Pyro - Fire damage up
Demoman - Explosive resist
Engineer - Health regeneration
Medic - Life steal
Sniper - Critical hits
Spy - Start with killing edge
