A Boy And His Blob!!

A unique and fantastic retro character from:
  • A Boy And His Blob: Trouble on Blobonia (NES, 1990; Wii Virtual Console, 2009)
  • The Rescue of Princess Blobette (Gameboy, 1991)
  • A Boy And His Blob (Wii, 2009)
    • Re-released for PS4/Xbox/PC/iOS/Android in 2016

Reboot of https://smashboards.com/threads/by-...boy-and-his-blob-for-super-smash-bros.342546/

It would be a super interesting dual-character, like Rosalina+Luma. The boy feeds jellybeans to the blob, transforming him into all kinds of things! Like a trampoline, rocket, ladder, jackhammer, pitfall-hole, balloon, bubble.... Seriously lots of random stuff, which helps you solve puzzles. The game is an adorable puzzle-platformer. There's even a button to hug the blob!!!

I just think it would really fit into the feel of Smash, sort of like Ice Climbers: retro and playful/childish.

Here's a quick IGN review of the 2009 Wii title, to give an idea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Moi4MYums-o

It's owned by a 3rd party: WayForward Technologies and Majesco Entertainment.

I just think, Sakurai would love this character, if someone had proposed it to him!! Because it's so unique and lovable.

What do you guys think??

I've only ever played the Wii game, but it was one of my favorite titles on the console. The idea of feeding jellybeans to the blob to make it transform is so charming, and the blob itself is one of the cutest characters I've ever seen. All of the transformations would lend themselves well to a moveset in Smash, and the fact that they're a duo makes them even more unique. I'd definitely love to see these two be playable in Ultimate!

I support! I like these guys and my mom also really liked their original game so it would be great to see her reaction to them getting in.

Wait a sec, is this where that one comic comes from? Turns out it was a parody too. ...Huh.

Anyway, I think it's about time we got an obscure retro character. I support!

Boy and his blob had a sequel on Gameboy I didn't know about?

That's crazy. A sequel to an NES game on Gameboy I didn't know about... I probably would have gotten it if I knew about it
