Hey guys, here is something I think all of you would like to see. I am gonna put it in spoilers because it might be spoiling some bosses that appear in the game.
Edit: Just in case, sorry if this is something that was already revealed before, I have not really kept track with Lip news.
I have no clue why this person thinks this relates to the DLC fighters, but Lip appears among the icons!
Dr Kawashima would be cool, not gonna lie.
Anyways I heard the guy was caught lying about something, don't know the details but yeah I don't believe him as much as I want this to be true.

While yes there isn't anything new about Lip or her series (Thanatos spirit is from KI, Cordelia spirit is from FE, and Flare Spirit is from Custom Robo.), I find it interesting that she's named Lip instead of her usual Rip naming for her Spirit, I'm unsure about her outfit in ACNL is named Rip or the naming of the item in this iteration of Smash but it may hint that they are willing to let Lip be seen overseas as seen with her Spirit. We also have seen Panel de Pon listed first a couple of times when representing universes without a playable character in the other section, she's not the first one listed in the other spirits though.

There's another character that can equip Lip's Stick, it is Agitha from Zelda: Twilight Princess
This meant, they could've easily used someone else as an alternative to use in the game to equip Lip's Stick and ignore Lip entirely and not make her appear in the game as a Spirit. Its lucky for Lip that they didn't use someone else to equip Lip's Stick like Furil in Brawl without Lip herself.

You better not be pulling my leg. You mean she gets a 3D model and shows up in a cutscene?

If this is true, this is huge.
No, the Spirits don't get a model. Kapp'n was used to sail a boat when there's water but there was no model of him, Lapras did get its own model when sailing on it probably because there's already an existing model.

Well, at least Lip haters will have to stop saying that no one knows her.
I'd also suggest more people to call Pokemon Puzzle Challenge, Planet Puzzle League, Dr. Mario & Puzzle League and Tetris Attack as Pokemon de Panepon, Panel de Pon DS, Dr. Mario & Panel de Pon and Yoshi no Panepon respectively to associate the games with the actual series.
The international titles dissociates it from the series its actually based on, while the Japanese ones use an ACTUAL BRAND NAME.
This will help repair the brand name to its rightful owner
Pokemon Puzzle Challenge -> Pokemon de Panepon
Planet Puzzle League -> Panel de Pon DS
Dr. Mario & Puzzle League -> Dr. Mario & Panel de Pon
Tetris Attack -> Yoshi no Panepon.

Why don't we call the series Panel de Pon and the games their original titles in English? (With the exception of Tetris Attack, of course.) For example, "Pokemon Puzzle League is part of the Panel de Pon series."
What? There's not much we can do with the name PPL because it never got a Japanese release.
Other games do have a Japanese name.

We just call it Pokemon Puzzle League, of course. What I mean is that we say Panel de Pon, Tetris Attack, Pokemon Puzzle League and Puzzle Challenge, the GCN game, the GBA game, and (as much as I hate to admit it) Planet Puzzle League are all part of the Panel de Pon series.

So, any findings on Nintendo's Fighting Fairy? Lip is still safe from last I checked.
She's the only Spirit in her series.
She has a profile icon out of the 98 (20 are assist trophies) unsorted Spirits that could've been chosen along with Shantae, Chorus Kids, Diskun and that guy with horns from Brain Age

Right, there's nothing we've seen so far that explicitly deconfirms Lip as a downloadable fighter in this game. Spirits don't deconfirm fighters anymore than trophies do. Remember Mewtwo in SSB4?
The best thing about all of this is that Lip is in many places in the game: Garbage Block, Item, Mii costume, Spirit, Song
, and even profile picture.
Its so obvious that they know that Lip has a long history in Smash despite not appearing until Ultimate.

Profile picture is good. The playable characters make the majority of profile pictures last I checked.

Another common complaint that people has about Lip is that her game is drowned by all of these different names, and there is an alternative to use the Japanese name to give Panel de Pon more credibility as a brand name for the series.

Lip haters exist?
I just thought most aren’t even aware of her presence. (Although that might change this time around.)
It’s pretty low to hate something that isn’t even remotely mainstream.
She's been getting more and more support lately, but back in the Brawl and, to some extent, SSB4 days I know there were a tragic number of people who didn't want Lip in the game because she's a "loli" (she isn't) and they didn't want people to draw porn of her now.

(So every young, cute girl is loli-bait now. Good to know. Darn, I guess we have to take Leaf out now.)

Look at these people thinking they can fight Rule 34. How cute.

As far as the spirit deconfirmation theory goes, the only thing I’d be weary about is that apparently out of every Mario spirit in the game, Piranha Plant doesn’t have one, and it’s a DLC character.
I hope this means nothing, of course, but it’s important to keep this note in mind as it may actually mean that if a possible DLC character has no spirit, they may be in.
(At the same time tho, Daisy has a spirit and is a fighter, so who knows?)

Well, if you had to choose spirits to put in the game, would you pick Piranha Plant when there are so many others to choose from?
Well, it wouldn’t be exactly hard to include one.
But the thing that gets me is that there is apparently spirits of other generic Mario enemies such as Goombas, Koopas, and Whomps, but no Piranha Plant whatsoever. I do think that is fishy.
I hope that doesn’t mean anything for Lip’s chances, but I honestly don’t know...

The closest thing we have is Petey Piranha, which is PP’s final smash.

Personally, I feel like you're reading too much into it.

Several people think that any character that isn't playable doesn't deserve it and that supporting characters that Sakurai already rejected is stupid.
They do believe she'll never be playable in Smash indefinitely because of all of the brand damage they did internationally, and her being Japan-only character, and the Lip's Stick seemingly always going to appear which lowers her chances when its already low.
She's seen as very unrealistic overall. Overall, those are the most relevant responses about Lip and seeing nothing special about her.

The cute character trait isn't something that would be offered niche to the roster. The rest of niches are fine but it can also pose a problem to her too.
Its actual the only discussion I see of Lip outside of this Smashboards thread, and the rest are just all negative.

I'll be honest, I have no idea what you're trying to say here.

She's unrealstic to ever be playable from what others said outside of this thread.
They also meant her references mean nothing to the character, it only hurts the characters chances from appearing in the future, the AC one didn't even boost up her relevance and Japan-only character. None of that ever helped her from being familiar to the character in the past.

Don't want to repeat again...so that's all.
