I can't even think how she would interact with everybody, but she would probably get along great with Amy Rose and Blaze.So how do you think Shantae would react/interact with some of these guys?
Characters I want to mainly focus on:
Sonic the Hedgehog
Miles “Tails” Prowler
Knuckles the Echidna
Dr. Eggman (Eggman Nega as an alt. character)
Cream the Rabbit (Tikal the Echidna as a potential assist for story reasons)
Shadow the Hedgehog
Rouge the Bat
Vector the Crocodile & Charmy the Bee
Espio the Chameleon
Blaze the Cat
Silver the Hedgehog
Sticks the Badger
Big the Cat
Honey the Cat
Emerl (Gemerl as an alt. character)
Mephiles the Dark
Sonic the Werehog
Zavok (assisted by the rest of the Deadly Six)
Heavy King (assisted by the rest of the Hard-Boiled Heavies)
Fang the Sniper/Nack the Weasel
Bean the Dynamite
Bark the Polar Bear
Mighty the Armadillo/Ray the Flying Squirrel
Other potential characters
Tangle the Lemur
Whisper the Wolf
I figured I might as well show the game that basicly inspired this idea of mine.Speaking of a Shantae Fighting Game...
It is actually something I've randomly come up with on a noon walk.
I guess Hyper Dragon Ball Z left some impression on me.
And before I knew it, I had an idea for a Shantae themed Mugen/Ikemen game.
One that focused on Half-Genie's as characters.
Of course, Shantae would be one of them. Duh!
But all the other Half-Genie characters from Seven Sirens would be characters as well.
Not only allowing them to shine at all, but also exploring new abilities and heights, fitting for their character.
And then I thought of a couple new Half-Genie characters. Raising the number of characters to around 8 to 10.
Like I said, a random idea that just so happened to pop up inside my head.
Lol yup, good memory. ;pIt's interesting to look back then and compare it to now. Shantae back in the Smash 4 Days had only three games to her name. During Smash Ult, Half-Genie Hero released. By then, the Ballot, hosted by the late Iwata, ended around October 3rd, 2015. And while we had arguments to us, she was still relatively unknown, and we didn't know how far she was in Japan, though Ken Sugimori knew of her at least. By that time, IIRC most of the DLC had released, excluding the out-of-nowhere Pajama Mode DLC. And during the course of DLC 1 and DLC 2, Seven Sirens was hyped and released in parts. By that point in of itself, Lab Zero teased Shantae for Indivisible, Trigger animated the opening cutscene for Seven Siren, Promare came attatched with a Seven Sirens promo, and a megaton of merch released. It's quite startling, typing this out, how five years made all the difference in the world for Shantae.
Considering the person who made that poll used to be a TF2 fan account and shared the poll on Reddit, it's clearly biased towards Heavy.Someone posted about a poll result in the social thread, and thought to share it since shantae is there high enough. Though the poll is kinda questionable.. for obvious reasons when you see who's 1st lol. Edit: Also, I love Conker, but who in their right minds thinks he could get into smash XD
There was a problem fetching the tweet
That makes a lot of sense, thanks for pointing that out. I still think some of the other characters might have had fan bases come in droves too. And still wondering why Conker made it that far, he's pretty much known for more mature content nowConsidering the person who made that poll used to be a TF2 fan account and shared the poll on Reddit, it's clearly biased towards Heavy.
It's also partially because it's a fan poll hosted by some random dude on Twitter, so he's kinda relying on people seeing it and spreading it for him. Near the end someone posted it on the TF2 subreddit, so it was just exposed to a lot of TF2 fans. That being said, this poll is still kinda biased, if not unintentionally, because it couldn't properly spread out.Considering the person who made that poll used to be a TF2 fan account and shared the poll on Reddit, it's clearly biased towards Heavy.
N64/Rareware fans like myself. I mean, after Banjo & Kazooie got in the next obvious N64 rep in almost everyone's minds would be Conker. Yes, his game is pretty mature with language, toilet humor, and sexual jokes. But they could tone him down for Smash.Also, I love Conker, but who in their right minds thinks he could get into smash XD
Well, the poll was posted on the Reddit for Team Fortress 2...the bias is entirely on purpose.Someone posted about a poll result in the social thread, and thought to share it since shantae is there high enough.

I mean I guess N64 rep maybe but if we’re referring to Rare then Battletoads would make more sense.N64/Rareware fans like myself.

Both of them make sense, though I believe that the Toads can take more immediate priority for support, since they got a new game coming at the moment.I mean I guess N64 rep maybe but if we’re referring to Rare then Battletoads would make more sense.
Conker is always right in front with Banjo & Kazooie in Rare promotional art, so he's kind of important to the company. Battletoads could get in first, but Conker would make just as much sense.I mean I guess N64 rep maybe but if we’re referring to Rare then Battletoads would make more sense.
High quality pixel art thereI really don't think Conker is a character nintendo would want to represent in smash.
But I guess you proved to me that some people think it could be ok, lol. Still quite a lot of votes for him, compared to .. well, never seeing him in polls usually.
The only sliver of hope that makes me think there's a very very small chance he could be in is because of Bayonetta.
In a way I'm glad bayo made it in because that's good news for characters that show more as well.
Edit: Saw some new shantae pixel art:
