Hey guys, is there any general thread dedicated to echo fighters?

On an unrelated note, I say Medusa would make a good echo fighter, though I’d honestly rather just have Hades as a newcomer for KI than a palu echo.

Pac-Man has been nominated.

Unfortunately, I have no idea how to fix the dead image links, which is very heartbreaking. Sometime next week after I finally move into my new place and no have to drive a total of 6 hours per day to work I am going to try to overhaul the thread and make it how it was in the early stages of it.

I have really, really drop the ball this year on it. (Vs 2018). I am going to start tagging people again when the new poll is up.

Also, do you guys want me to go back to daily changes to the poll? Or is that too quick?

I voted for Ms. Pac-Man, because of course.

As for a Robin echo... I haven't played any of the Fire Emblem games until recently, with Three Houses. However, I've heard Celica thrown around as a possibility. Problem is, I don't anything about her, so I don't know if she qualifies. Though if you want a character I DO know about, maybe Dorothea from Three Houses could, if you took a few creative liberties.

To be honest, I am surprised that Ms. Pac-Man wasn't an Echo from the start.
She's nearly as iconic as Pac-Man himself.
Just make her Bonus Fruit have new properties for new fruits, and it's a wrap.

It could still be a legal issue. Remember, how Ms. Pac-Man gets used still has to be approved. Contracts can be quite specific. If Namco-Bandai doesn't want her as more than a separate character, then that's what it is. The fact she wasn't created by Namco alone is something that could be part of why she's not a playable Echo. There could be other reasons we don't know of. Maybe Sakurai never thought to ask. She's obvious to us, but that doesn't mean it was obvious to the developers at all.

I wasn't saying rights alone. Though yeah, I was vague.

I mean more it's a matter of pride. Some won't easily use characters if they weren't made under their studios. Poor Waluigi...

Ms. PAC-MAN is an odd case yeah. She originated in what was essentially a mod, only to have the game rights sold to Midway. Then Midway went out of business and a majority of their assets were absorbed by WB games.
It's kinda odd to place where she stands nowadays.
