Not trying to sound typical but do you think Disney would approve the idea of having Sora fight Scorpion?
I mean, they approved of having Yes-This-Is-An-Extremely-Blatant-Kano-Reference-But-It's-Not-Kano-We-Swear show up in Wreck-It Ralph. Why don't we ask this after Sora joins assuming it ever happens?

Despite the film released in 2012? I'm not sure if what I'm saying is a counterargument

Scorpion, Crash, Sora and Travis, I see as a better hype wave for next Smash, that makes Ultimate's guest DLC wave kinda pathetic in comparison. Smash Wii U/3DS even has a better wave with Cloud, Ryu and Bayo, great magic. If they aren't added, Ultimate's DLC wave will look niche in future generations.

I wouldn't write Crash out so easily quite yet, seeing how swimmingly his series has been doing this gen and supposedly Acti's 5-year plan may result in him getting into Ultimate. He's the only one you mention that doesn't have any particularly big barriers to go through, solely because no one knows what Acti's stance on Smash dealings is.

With 4 spots left, there may yet be some wild cards left up the sleeve.

So anyway, now that Crash's latest game's out...


If that skin doesn't remind one of Scorpion, nothing does.

Not really relevant to the topic, but I think its seriously time for a new owner of this support thread. The OP is basically outdated and un-updated. Its tiring to see such an iconic mascot with an under maintained thread that deserves better.

I already own the Waluigi support thread, unless you can take multiple. :nifty: I wouldn't mind revising the OP.

Dang, apart of me doesn't want Scorpion in Smash Ultimate anymore because its gameplay is so rigged. Would love for it to happen next Smash. What's odd tho, Ultimate's gameplay looks to offer the best versatile for Scorpion.

Next game will likely offer some upgrades, but good luck bringing that up over a sea of "but my complete returning roster!". 😓

I don't think I posted here before, but I've definitely been lurking around here

Guys I just want to say, For Some reason I think Scorpion might actually be the character I'm most Confident in Joining FP2. I give Small Subset of Reasons

-Ed Boon Down for Idea
-MK11 I Believe was #1 in April and/or May of 2019, even on Switch, and was a top game for months to come
-Arc Systems might be giving an hint toward more Fighting game Content in the future
-Mortal Kombat Vs Street Fighter
-Mortal Kombat Appeals to the More Mature Audience, kind of like how Joker did, except Mortal Kombat is much more Mainstream
-Bayonetta can get Eaten by the Hellfire like Kamiya wanted

Probably right. I'd like a Soul Calibur character too though as aforementioned, so no Heihachi on the roster is still good for me either way.

Oh yeah, this is something of relevance.


Jury's still out on that though.
Wow. Is there an update on this?
It would do wonders for the slowly fading idea of Nintendo = Kid stuff, if they owned Mortal Kombat.
I almost wish Nintendo DID have a few more 2nd parties that were more adult oriented- if Disney can own Huly, Fox, and FXX, then Nintendo can Get Over Here with some more graphic content and a warning.

Unfortunately, AT&T ended up not selling off WB/MK, but some other things they owned.

One thing I think about is how would Scorpion Alts Work Exactly?

I Don't know if all of his alts would be His different Outfits from the Series, there is so many and that's alot of Modeling to Do

So I'm gonna guess The Other Ninjas would be alts. would they be Named?, And Would they have certain changes to make them feel closer to themselves rather than Scorpion. Would they be voiced?

I imagine he'd have the other ninja colors just as references, not actual alts. You have to change all the ninjas too much to make them works as skins. Be weird to have Rain using a bunch of fire.

I personally think sakurai would go with the klassic design as it's the most iconic and the palette swaps would look like the klassic versions of all the characters.

1. Default
2. Blue (Sub-Zero)
3. Green (Reptile)
4. Red (Ermac)
5. Gray (Smoke)
6. Black (Noob)
7. Purple (Rain)
8. Brown (Tremor) or they could make his modern design a special alt.

I think it is possible that we could have an echo that works as Sub Zero. Though the likelihood of that may be minimal.

Do you guys think there is a chance they might add the MK theme by The Immortals even though it originated in the movie? I would love to hear it in Smash but I'm pretty sure every song in Smash originated in a video game.
