There does seem to be a lack of stage discussion, which is the 2nd most important part of Smash. What are some levels in separate IP's not yet in Smash would you like to see included as a Vs. stage in the series?

The realization just hit me that the theater from Paper Mario 64/TTYD would be an amazing addition. I'm also interesting in a Saturn Valley stage.

It's more than past time that Dr. Mario got a stage of his own. if it involves fighting in a giant glass jar filled with vitamins and viruses all the better.

There are three Metroid ideas I'd like to see.
Mother Brain's chamber, with the lava, those regenerating shields, and those laser things.
The Touchdown on Zebes from Super Metroid where you fight outside in the rain and on top of Samus's ship.
Retro-Metroid, based on the beginning of the NES game.

I'd also love it if Donkey Kong got a new level based on the original game that didn't suck.

Moonside from Earthbound could also be fun.

Bowser needs a stage set in his castle. I'd prefer the old NES white bricks and fireball style castle with a disppearing bridge myself, but I'm open for other ideas.
Daisy could use a stage as well. Something set in Sarasaland with pyramids and Easter Island statues would be nice. I'd be okay with either ganmebody style graphics or modern graphics.

Megaman could also use a new stage, somethign without the Yellow Devil. Give him some disappearing blocks and those doors that automatically open and close.

A Castlevania graveyard stage. We have two Castlevania characters, we might as well have new stage and graevyards are present ina lot of the games.

If we're talking about drop puzzle stages, Tetris is long overdue. It's one of the most significant video games of all time and all it's got is a couple music tracks.

I listed these in my own similar thread not too long ago but Giygas and Worms would also make very cool stages.

I absolutely agree with every idea you have written. I'm a Metroid newbie, have yet to tap with playing the series, but I love The Zebes where you fight on top of Samus's ship. Hyped! Its also commonly establish we could do without a new DK jungle stage.

Amazing that I have just as much dream stages as characters, the right stages could really set some new serious tones.

I want a Sonic Colours stage, that brings tons of tracks from this game. This stage could be Planet Wisp or Aquarium Park.

Airship from Super Mario Galaxy would also be great. And I just had an idea : Final Level. This one would be based on every final level that can be found in Mario games, like the crown level of 3D Land, the purple level 241 star level from Mario Galaxy, final level of Galaxy 2, etc ... This stage, while bringing amazing tracks (I want special world 8 theme from 3D Land) could be a tricky platforming stage, with tiny platforms above the void. Each game will have a part of their own final level, the scrolling finishing with the building found at the end of Darker Side from Odyssey. The main music would be "Super Mario Medley" which would be a medley of all main themes from Mario platforming games.

I would also love a Nintendo Land stage, which could take place on the main platform where you can play the ball game to collect objects. Sometimes, you would be put in of the mini game the game offers, bringing different hazards and events.

A Big Brain Academy could also be fun, alongside with a Style Savvy stage. And it's about time that R.O.B and Doctor Mario get their home stage, alongside Daisy, K.Rool, Piranha Plant, Bowser, Corrin, Mewtwo and Inceneroar.

And yeah, I want a Tetris stage too ! That could work so well !

And finally, can we have Rainbow Road from MK7 back AND Rainbow road from MK64 as a stage, with the constellation being the faces of the current characters on the battlefield ?

Metal Cavern will always be part of my most wanted stage list, its a really infamous, but classic stage.

I would love the Secret Level as a stage from Super Mario Sunshine, thank god for it being acknowledged. I still want Shifting Sand land and Majora's Mask Clock Town.

I'd also like to see a stage set underwater in original Super Mario bros style. Maybe they could have the stage give the characters more floaty jumps or something.

A scrolling Kirby Rainbow course stage could also be fun. I know a lot of people don't like the autoscrolling stages, but I usually find them fun.

There's a lot of great ideas for new Smash Stages. Stage Builder helps to realized a few of these but it's not entirely the same. There are so many amazing stage options that I can't possibly list every single one I'd love to see. Especially when you take into account all the ideas other people could have that you've never thought of before. Something I saw a lot of when I hosted that Stage Creation Contest last year.

To keep things narrowed down, I'd like to see new stages that can serve as a home stage for characters who lack one of their own. You know how Fire Emblem has 7 characters but only 3 stages? One stage for each FE character is the kind of thing I'm thinking of.

So in that regard, here are my ideas:

:ultbowser: - Okay technically speaking there's enough Mario stages in Ultimate already to where you could assign one to each individual Mario Character. The problem here is that none of them really.........fit, as a Bowser Home Stage. So yeah, I'll jump on the "Put in Bowser's Castle" train.

:ultdoc: - Pretty much the same case here as with Bowser. A Dr. Mario stage would be appreciated.

:ultlucina: - So of the 3 Fire Emblem Stages we have so far, my opinion is that Coliseum fits best for Marth, Castle Siege fits best for Ike, and Arena Ferox fits best for Chrom. So what new idea could work for Lucina? I'm thinking the outrealms. Basically a traveling and/or warping stage going through battle maps from a bunch of different Fire Emblem Games. That whole concept started with Awakening and has some ties to Lucina's Time Traveling so it sounds pretty good to me.

:ultganondorf: - Now this one is more a...........Pseudo entry. Fitting as a Ganon's Tower Stage would be, part of me feels like Bridge of Eldin fits as Ganondorf's home stage well enough considering the final battle of Twilight Princess. Still, some may disagree with that so I'll mention this here anyway.

:ultroy: - Oh Boy. This one might be a tricky since I haven't delved too much into Pre-Awakening Fire Emblem games yet. Hmmmmmmmmmm......perhaps Castle Ostia?

:ultrob: - I'm not saying the idea of throwing in the Retro Stages like Wrecking Crew as R.O.B.'s home stage doesn't work. But actually seeing a Gyromite stage or a Stack-Up stage would be nice.

:ultrobin: - I think we're at a point where the spoiler factor of having the back of the Fell Dragon Grima as a stage isn't quite as severe.

:ultken: - Ken has had a couple of home stages throughout his Street Fighter career. The Battle Harbor from SF2 is the obvious pick, but I supposed there are other options.

:ultcorrin: - One would think the Opera House from the Trailers and you know what fair enough. That's not a bad idea. But the Bottomless Canyon sounds pretty good too.

:ultrichter: - I don't know how many of you are familiar with Rondo of Blood. But the first level in that game is a village set ablaze called "Dinner of Flames". I think that would be a good home stage for Richter.

:ultkrool: - I'm honestly surprised we didn't get a Gangplank Galleon Stage. Sure we already have a Pirate Ship with, well, Pirate Ship. But if we're talking home stages than I think they'd have to be from the same series. Though I guess that is up for debate.

:ultincineroar: - The lack of a Sun & Moon stage surprised me even more. Ultra Space might been cutting it too close for the base game but you still got plenty of Tropical Island locations to use I'm sure.


Other than that whole Home Stage thing. It'd be nice to have a Wario Land Stage to compliment the WarioWare stuff. And I'd also like to see some more stuff from other categories of Mario games besides Kart and the Platformers. We do have a Paper Mario stage currently but it's got a couple of hiccups to it. A more appealing Paper Mario Stage, as well as stages from games like Mario & Luigi and the Sports games would be nice too see as well.

Also a new Xenoblade Stage. I don't care which of the 3 games you pull it from just make it so that it doesn't have to rely on Battlefield and Omega Forms to be good.

Speaking out of curiosity, how would a stage based off a Pokemon Center work?
Could be interesting depending on how its organized. It should use its more simplistic look, haven't played Pokémon in a long time. :laugh: It could have a type of hazard that both heals or drain the damage percentage by small bits.
