I'm not really trying to compare them, I'm just saying that people that we couldn't have one Arms character and thought we needed one with multiple as alts a la Hero yet we got Min Min alone. People think it's not possible we could just get one of the Champions.
not really. Most people seemed to thing we could have just one arms character. The idea of them all being alts didn’t come until after we were told we’d get one

We were never told we would get one until Min Min was revealed. And people including myself talked about the Hero scenario before Min Min.

what are you talking about? We were told months in advance we were getting an arms character
Are you trolling me? I said after they announce we were getting a Arms character people thought we were getting a Hero scenario with Spring Man as the default and some of the other Arms characters as alts.

oh I misunderstood I thought you meant we were never told we were getting an arms character until min min not one with no alts

but like I said one character on their own was the more common idea

Actually, the idea of the Hero scenario for Arms was a common thought. Check out some of the old posts before Min Min's announcement including mine:

I don't really think Min Min can be compared to the situation of the Champions honestly. I mean, it was the very first time the franchise of the character got revealed before the actual character Min Min. That's because, well, we already knew what to expect. Expand arms: the character. A long ranged brawler. All the Champions have distinctive different abilities, moreso than the Dragon Quest Heroes also.

Based on that, I compared their situation more with the starter Pokemon as Greninja and Incineroar.

I still want Impa more tho.
