You already know my stance on them. Haha The fairies are lazy and uncreative. I really hope Sakurai see pass them.
Just because you don't like the idea it doesn't mean it is lazy and uncreative. I think having Talt and Tael help him in some of his moves is a fantastic idea.

I keep thinking in what happened this week and what could happen today and on Friday...

They added 2 characters to the blog (monday - tuesday), so if a new character will be revealed this week (seeing how today is an AT), it must be on friday.
Having 2 characters revealed early this week and then a surprising new character at the end of the week would make sense and would continue with the "3 characters per week".

If not, what could be revealed tomorrow, a stage perhaps?

P.S: [hype mode enabled] maybe today (in around 6h 20m) we get a direct announced for tomorrow, or maybe today is the day they'll show the direct and then add the character tomorrow in the blog

The fairies would be a good addition to his moveset IMO. Every character needs weak, basic attacks like punches and kicks: not every one of Skull Kid's moves needs to be earth shattering or moon summoning.

It would also be pretty boring if all weak attacks were variants of "small dark magic ball", so I also vote Yes on fairies. Besides, the chair theory hinges on them :p

3 hours and 45 minutes to find out...
Sakurai just said that they are slowing down, don't expect a direct until like the beginning of November.
Although it dosen't make sense for him to say that just to update the character playlist a few days later, continuing the pattern. But the update could just mean nothing. :upsidedown:

I think Tatl and Tael are counted among Skull Kid. There could be some attacks with them like it is in Hyrule Warriors. But I hope it won't be too much. I don't like the playstyle of Rosalina.

There are so many hints that Skull Kid is in ultimate but none of them show that he isn't a boss, but I am optimistic that he is playable.
I believe in the chair theory and it don't make sense that Sakurai will give us a hint for only a boss.

The thing about tael and tatl, I dont want Skull Kid feel like he's sitting back while the fairies do the work, it just looks boring imo, however having them in 1 or 2 moves is the ideal for me, not representing them would be dumb.
I imiagine that Tatl and Tael would be used for maybe just the side-B attack and that's it, similar to Mario's cape.

I was kind of was thinking his side b could be him blowing the horn and the a puppet from TP came rushing at you
I was imagining that as his down special. :laugh: I see the fairies as his jabs and maybe his pummel, but not much beyond that. I could also see the grab being a Majora tendril, so maybe then the pummel would be related to that instead.

Don't forget they could just do away with it all and he uses dark magic like he does in Hyrule Warriors, his b could be a charge that when used at full detonates like a bomb of magic like he has in HW

I think there are many different movesets for him. He was in 3 different games and still has a moveset in Hyrule Warriors. Even Captain Falcon became a moveset, so it should be no problem to find something for SK, especially he has magic, fees and some instruments.
Also the speculations for his possible final flash the moon or majoras wrath.

I just had a thought; why should being a one shot Zelda character matter when characters like Lucina, Robin, Corrin, & even Chrom all were one shots themselves (not counting crossovers or Fire Emblem Heroes)? I don't think they have had any part in the other main series games except Crossovers (correct me if I'm wrong).

The argument against it is fire emblem has new cast of characters every game, while Zelda is usually the same 3 people reincarnated every game, so finding characters with a sense much impact/importance as Link, Zelda, and Ganon isn't the easiest.

Especially when the reincarnated triforce wielders are the main characters of every game, and Fire Emblem has new protagonists every game, I believe the last time Fire Emblem had a game with the same characters as protagonists was way back in the 90s with Thracia 776

True. That's why I think the "villain" theme in this new Smash is a great opportunity to include characters like Skull Kid.

Most of actual ones are just the main characters of their respective series, but only a few are the villains.... I think it's their turn.

Usually the main antagonist in a game/series is someone who you heard about the entire game, about how powerful they are.... being the final battle against them the climax. Having the chance to control them in a fighting game is something very interesting in my opinion.

I feel the only other characters who would actually work for Smash who have shown up multiple times is Skull Kid and Impa. Sure, there's others who show up multiple times too, but they're not exactly set for Smashing.

I'd think the big difference would be that characters can actually interact with Tingle in the Great Bay stage, while they can't interact with Toon Link in the Spirit Tracks stage.
Huh hadn't thought of that, guess they could get rid of that interaction and remove him entirely.
But yeah the interaction aspect is different from toon link and king dedede, so I guess I could see it as a deconfimation in some fashion, cause I dont have anything to really base it off of.
