So does this mean we can a Smash Direct announcement on Friday Or Saturday (Don't really know what the Sixth Day will be)

Also! If he's lying about this! I'm going to be extremely pissed as all hell!
Don't take it to heart, he's just an extremely good guesser, and all guesses come with a degree of uncertainty

It's toxicity only matched by some places such as GameFAQs Smash speculation.
Admittedly I don't spend much time there, but I've never found GameFAQs nearly as bad as 4chan.

Anyway, the fairies being a pummel isn't bad, but I also like them as a jab combo. Hold A and they'll swirl around in front of Skull Kid.

Believe me, I've seen snippets here and there. If they don't like a character, they'll completely deny any possibility of them being in and toss insults around. Hard to find any reasonable, real debates about why a something should, could, or will be in smash.


I'm skeptical about the leak, but frankly, I think I just want any leak including Skull Kid as a fighter to be true.

I feel that! I'm so desperate at this point. I almost wish I hadn't remembered how much I wanted him. I'd all but forgotten about him as a possibility until I came back here and saw that he was still alive after the AT massacre of August. Then loz18 started bringing him up and all my self control got away from me. :laugh:

So I am one who doesn't want high Tatl and Tael involvement in the moveset, but I would like them somewhere, I'm wondering if them working as a pummel could work, I would like that very much.
I dislike the idea too. Majora can bring down the moon and inflict all kinds of evil upon the world, why would it need the help of two fairies to attack?

I'd like Tatl & Tael in his moveset (maybe as his jab? could also be a slap with his hand, or that could be a tilt/smash attack), though only as a few normals and his grab + pummel.

Also, have 'em appear in his victory screens.

And we have another leak...


Wish it was real, but it just seems so fake.
Oh this one isn’t even trying. That’s so obviously photoshop’s ‘motion blur’ filter that even I can notice it.

I guess nobody understands what ‘picture of a computer screen’ is supposed to look like...

Made my own clearly fake leak using motion blur along with other things.


Gives a pretty good insight on how easy it is to fake this stuff.



Also, I'd like to say that I'm glad some Smash youtubers are still reminding people to keep their faith up on Skull Kid.

You already know my stance on them. Haha The fairies are lazy and uncreative. I really hope Sakurai see pass them.

If they're not used in his moveset, It'd be interesting for Skull Kid to have them in his own variation of the Fairy/Navi taunt that Young Link has. (They gave that taunt to Young Link, and BotW Link no longer has it.)

I've said this on discord but i will say it here as well… it's easy to make anything look weird if you pause it in a specific frame in mid action/movement. That + Ken type of leaks (early build ones) also tend to look unpolished and such. These type of leaks really are boring at this point because they don't let much to analyze, I would much rather have a 3 seconds clip or .gif or something to really be able to tell anything. Either way I just hope we get news soon lol
