Am I the only one who wants Raymond Bryce from Disaster: Day of Crisis?
Actually, I have been wondering about him since pre-Smash 4. Don't know why I thought this, but when it started to become more and more likely that Snake wouldn't be returning for Smash 4, I felt Raymond would be a decent replacement for him. I don't know, maybe it was his design that made me think that.

All this being said, I wouldn't be opposed to Raymond in Smash.

Sadly, It'd be odd to have him use grenades as he has never used an explosive except an RPG. But I think he'd be cool choice, using firearms. I mean Joker broke the firearm rule, what's stopping Bryce?

I also do. Don't ask me why because I can't for the life of me explain why.
Don't worry. I personally like the guy because he has a great moveset idea with firearms. Plus he's basically an action movie character, so he'd be nice to see. Not only that, Disaster was one of Monolith Soft's first games for Nintendo.

We need Shadow... it’s getting really annoying to wait.

My assist pass dlc would be/ Shadow, Isaac, skull kid, Krystal, knuckles. If we can’t get two more sonic people, I’d do bomberman. Maybe walking as the bonus fighter like piranha plant

I know I already commented on this, but I'm not joking... maybe you should just make a Raymond Bryce thread at this point. Seriously, this is SO good, it near-warrants a thread, IMO.

If I know you, I'd say you're already making one.
Sadly, no. Although, I think Demarlion Demarlion do a better job than I would at making one.

Heck, I even have a stage idea.
Oh, please let me hear it.

Sadly, because I'm on a phone, I don't think threads are good for those. Anyway, here's the stage: Submerged Streets.

The stage first starts on a cracked road after an earthquake. There is a walkoff on the left, and a hole on the right, and not many platforms. But after 30 seconds, a tsunami rushes into the stage and drags the fighters onto some rubble on the now Submerged Streets. You fight on the rubbles and ruined pieces of metal. The hazard include some debris flying through the air, and at times, SURGE members will appear to open fire on the fighters (If Raymond is in the match, they'll even say "It's him!"). Oh, and DON'T jump in the water. It immediately drowns you as it's raging waters in a tsunami.

You know, you could make you a support topic for Raymond Bryce if you want Demarlion.

And interesting Top 5 lists everyone. I have to say that Smashkirby and Mr Nintendo had the most interesting ones. I am still curious to hear opinions on others they feel are the Top 5 AT and Spirit promotions.

Oh, once my fanfic "The Dark Side of Light" gets 40 or 50 followers....I will mention this thread!

If you're all wondering, the fanfic is a World of Light fanfic but with some non-playable characters taking the roles of the fighters instead.
So, is it like a WoL AU where the NPCs are the main focus? Or are they on their own adventure at the same time as the playable cast?

Huh. Interesting. I thought Brain Age was dead for whatever reason.
Brain Age is one of the best selling educational games from Nintendo

It is Big Brain Academy however that is dead.
Just so I can be sure I'm remembering this right... Big Brain Academy is Nintendo's OTHER 'Edutainment' series where Dr. Lobe is the 'host character' right?

Also, this has been boggling my mind for Heaven knows how long, but is Big Brain Academy a spin-off of the Brain Age series (or vice-versa)?

Finally (and I don't think I'm going nuts here), didn't someone on SB make a 'Dr. Lobe for Smash' thread? I know I came across it once...

Yes, Big Brain Academy is the one with Dr. Lobe. No, it's not a spin-off of Brain Age. Yes, I also recall seeing a Dr. Lobe for Smash thread. I'm more of a Kawashima guy myself, but I'd really like to see Dr. Lobe in a bigger capacity, like an AT or as a big presence in a Brain Academy stage.

Ah, thank you. Believe me, I wasn't kidding when I said it's been on my mind for YEARS whether or not Big Brain Academy and Brain Age were intricately related in some way. Also, I agree with you that Dr. Lobe kind of does seem like the type of character that seems like he should some kind of more important role in Smash. Even if he's not playable (though I certainly wouldn't object if that ever does happen), an AT role for him or having a stage from his games would be nice.

which is a shame cause dr lobe would have been amazing in smash
Yeah, as I've said, I certainly wouldn't object if Dr. Lobe (by some miracle) ever suddenly became playable in a Smash Bros. game.

Croagunk is both an assistant and playable character in Pokken Tournament.
Lakitu is both a starter and a plable character in Mario Kart 8. Rathalos is both an assistant and a boss in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Majora's Mask Moon is both a background element and a assistant in Super Smash Bros.Ultimate.
Toon Link is both a background element and a playable character in Super Smash Bros. 4 and Ultimate, and he and Young Link are both present in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Moral of the story? Every rule is valid until it's broken. So I say "both".

Smash Toon Link seems to be all the Toon Links now.

He was introduced in a cutscene on Pirate Ship and now he has a classic mode based on Tri Force Heroes.

Oh, I’m very happy about Meowth’s Final Smash. :awesome:

Ssriously... now is a good time to support Meowth and Team Rocket for Smash.

Meowth and Team Rocket are finally relevant in games again.

Sun / Moon - Meowth is finally available as a wild Pokémon again (you couldn’t catch them in Ruby / Sapphire, Diamond / Pearl, Black / White, and X / Y); Meowth gets an Alolan form

Ultra Sun / Ultra Moon - Team Rocket finally came back (they were only in Red / Blue and Gold / Silver and their remakes)

Pokémon Let’s Go - Jessie, James, and Meowth from the anime finally got a video game appearance for the first time since Pokémon Yellow and Pokémon Puzzle League

Smash Ultimate DLC - Team Rocket is the first Pokémon Mii costume

Sword / Shield - Meowth gets a Gigantamax form; Mystery Gift Pokémon available for the first three months

Meowth & Team Rocket for Smash!
Meowth seems to get a more support by the Pokemon games, maybe it is a good time for Meowth to become the first ever Pokeball-to-Fighter since Charizard was.
