Best/Worst of Smash Bros Meme - OUTDATED by GECKO-Nuzlockes Best/Worst of Smash Bros Meme - OUTDATED by GECKO-Nuzlockes
THIS IS OLD. I've redone this meme since the release of the new game and it can be found here:
soraismyhomeboy.deviantart.com…

Template here: soraismyhomeboy.deviantart.com…

Introducing, my favorite and least favorite parts of the Smash Bros. series! With special guest star, crappy MS Paint drawings! Because SoraIsMyHomeboy has no other means of making digital art! Yay!

=====

NOTES ON THE LOVE AND HATRED PACKED INTO THIS MEME:

Worst additions to roster:
1.) Wario. The main reason is that he is absolutely disturbing. I am actually disturbed by him. He's a disgusting character and it sickens me to even see him in battle. He's also insanely immature on the creator's part. A fart attack? Seriously? It's just sad. He also wasn't necessary. We have so many Mario characters already. I know he has his own games, but it's still a Mario-related franchise.

2.) Toon Link. He's a really good character. Sometimes I play as him. But....WHY is he SO much better than Link? Shouldn't the original character be better than other versions of himself? I just didn't understand why Link sucked so much in Brawl, while Toon Link was so overpowered and had better attacks.

3.) R.O.B. He isn't even from a game. They literally made up a character for a fighting game that is supposed to use characters from other games. Why? Also, robots are lame. R.O.B. especially.

Best additions to roster:
1.) Ike. We were sadly lacking in heavy characters and his sheer power in battle is amazing. I love his moveset too.

2.) Wolf. Even though I don't love Wolf's attacks, we needed more villains and he brings a battle style all his own. For those who say he's just a Fox clone, you're wrong. They don't share a single attack in common, except for their reflector thing. The true Fox clone was Falco in Melee, but even he got a change of attacks for Brawl.

3.) Dedede. I did not fully come to appreciate him until recently. But again, the game was lacking in heavy-hitters and Dedede is such a unique battler. He's hilarious too. I love his moves. He's altogether just really interesting to use and I appreciate characters who break the usual moveset mold.

Favorite stages:
1.) Kongo Jungle. Probably my favorite Melee stage. It's really fun to battle there and the DK rap is the best soundtrack in the game.

2.) Shadow Moses Island. I love the tone and feel of it, and it has some fun battle options (mainly bouncing people off of walls....which is really fun....) I LOVE Metal Gear's music too. Music is very important to me when I'm playing. It adds so much drama.

3.) Spear Pillar. Pokemon is awesome, so having Legendaries shoot lasers of death and throw moon boomerangs at you as you battle to the death is epic. I like the set-up for the stage too.

Least favorite stages:
1.) PokeFloats. You can't even battle here. Half the match is spent just trying to stay on the Pokemon and not fall to your death. It was a fun idea, but it is not a good battle stage.

2.) 75m. I hate it with a burning passion. Like PokeFloats, it's way easier to die from the the stage itself than the opponents. Yes, you can dodge everything, but even if the stage doesn't kill you, I hate the set-up. I don't feel like I can go anywhere or do anything. I spend most of my time just getting to the action, and by then, it's moved or the people have died from the stage.

Roster removal:
1.) Sonic. I know I'll get hate for this one, but I don't care. I also know that he's already in the next game, and I don't care. I just hate Sonic as a character, and I hate him as a battler in Brawl. His attacks suck, he's fast to the point of being hard to control, and I never see a need to play as him. But, if it'll get fans hyped up and drooling and throwing their money at Nintendo, why not?

2.) Captain Falcon. I know he has been in it since the start, but he never should've been. He's nothing but a meat-sack of raging hormones and man-boobs. My siblings and I literally call him "BoobMan" or simply "Boob." (lol, and I criticized Nintendo for being immature XD) But seriously, does anyone even play F-Zero? I didn't know what it was until Smash Bros came out. It's not even that popular of a game from what I can tell.

3.) R.O.B. I doubt he'll ever return, since he was from Brawl's story mode, but my goodness, if they ever bring him back, I'll hunt all of the creators down. His time is over. Get rid of him. He's a lame character.

=====

These are just my very strong and opinionated tastes in Smash Bros-related things. If I offended you or your favorite character(s), I apologize. I would love to hear your opinion on why you like them and/or hate the things I like.

Hope you enjoyed, and hope some of you try your own meme :D

You play as Yoshi too? o-O I know a really good brawl player who played as Yoshi and almost beat me, but then again... we had Final Smashes...That might have made a difference, but Yoshi is pretty strong without it ^^'

Final Smashes aren't awful, just really cheap unless your Mario cause he needs those to make up for he's weak move set.

YES, I PLAY AS YOSHI TOO, BECAUSE HE'S THE BEST CHARACTER.

If you want to see something truly incredible, look up "amsa melee tournament" on YouTube. Amsa is a Japanese Smash Bros player who showed up out of nowhere to the National Tournaments one year. He ONLY plays as Yoshi, which is unheard of in the competitive community, and he is absolutely fantastic. He showed up, no one knew who he was, and he took down the biggest names in the tournament, smashers who had been in the tournament for years and years and had a reputation as some of the best. He is a legend. He is my video game hero.

(As far as Mario is concerned, he doesn't need anything to help him, because he sucks and is a terrible character and he doesn't deserve anything good.)

Yoshi is definitely NOT the best character! If you've ever seen anyone use Yoshi correctly you'll notice the practice it takes to control Yoshi's difficult moves instead of them excelling in another character. I've used him in many maps on different occasions, but I don't see what's so good about him. 


Asma is much better than anyone I've seen play Brawl before. Are you sure he only plays as Yoshi, because he just looks like he could be really good with other characters?

Just because a character is difficult to master doesn't mean they're bad. Sometimes, hard-to-master characters have the largest pay-off. Yoshi has insane tech that is very underrated. If you watch the very few Yoshi players that exist, you'll see the really unique options he brings to the table. Plus, he has the advantage of never being used. Most people don't know what to expect when fighting Yoshi, and they don't know the match-up well enough to counter him. Yoshi is a MASTER of edgeguarding and he is amazing at aerial control. If you end up in the air at all against a Yoshi, he's gonna walk all over you. Probably literally. (Flutterkick for the win.)

Amsa is absolutely phenomenal. I'm sure he would be good as other characters, but I've personally only seen him play as Yoshi.

That's not my point. If you pick a character harder to master, then you'll have to work harder just to use him well, but if you use someone simpler like Mario you can learn use him even better. Also, Yoshi's still a basic character. He's jump height, speed, damage are all around average. The only thing that that makes him unique is the egg throw. It's kinda like Pikachu's spam bolt, but goes up and has much more damage. Although this move is good against other regular gravity characters, it is almost useless against Star Fox and Falco. They both dominate in the air and are the best choice against Yoshi.

Well, I also believe that all the characters are very unique and have very unique playstyles. So I don't think one is necessarily harder to master than another. They're just different. It always felt natural for me to use Yoshi, while others can't use him at all. On the reverse, I suck with Mewtwo while others easily picked up his style and love using him. It all just depends on the person. They all have hidden little secrets they can do.

Going on the same principle, I don't see any character as "basic." If you're talking about jump height, speed, and damage, Yoshi's jump height is significantly larger than others. His double jump is much higher than, say, Mario's double jump. I think his jump height is only rivaled by Ness. Speed is pretty average, yes. But it has to be balanced. Damage really depends for Yoshi. Yes, it's pretty average, but certain attacks like c+down in the air can rack up as much as 30-40%.

As far as egg throw being his only unique aspect...I would say almost everything is unique about Yoshi. He has far more tricks in his arsenal than just egg throws (though I love those too.) However, I would also say this about any character. All of them have attacks/techniques that are unique and set them apart from anyone else.

Not sure about the match-up with Fox or Falco. I've seen Yoshi beat them plenty of times due to his insane edgeguarding capability. He's also a master at using ledges which can help him outmaneuver when he needs to. (Although this is getting into competitive gameplay and I don't know how much you're referring to competitive or just normal play....)

This whole character uniqueness or whatever it is is what separates pros from really good players.I look at the characters as types(maybe because I play a lot of Pokemon) with certain bonuses, making everything seem simpler and more manageable. With some players, they like to look at it like every character is there own thing, but that's more of type two then one. Different type 1 players are better at different things. Some players use speed characters and end up being bad with slow ones, and vice versa.

There's always a basic, a middle ground, something...not too special. Mario is the best example of basic. He has regular speed, jump, gravity, and damage, making him not have a direction. A character like Bowser or Ike would be of power since they hit WAY higher than someone like Pit. Falcon is in the speed type cause he is much faster,but not as hard hitting.

After breaking down the groups, then you can get to the uniqueness of characters. Special moves like Yoshi's egg separates him cause...well...something, I'm not to sure honestly xD So I'll go back to Bowser and Ike. Both are in power, but Ike is more quick hard hits and reach while Bowser is like raw power (Some might say it's the shell spin, but I'm sticking with the size).

(You can't have normal play without competitive, so...lets just say both?)

Well, I see we think of things very differently, since you seem to have some mental organization and I do not XD

I hear where you're coming from. But even in their "types," isn't it true that "best character" is subjective? (I mean, honestly, when I said 'Yoshi is the BEST character,' I was exaggerating for humor purposes and because I'm obsessed XD)

I don't really get why Sakurai gave Falcon a completely different personality in Smash than he has in his own games. In the comics and in GX, Captain Falcon's actually a pretty serious guy. Nothing like the boisterous pawncher you see in Smash. I'm not gonna give you crap for hating Sonic even though he's a favorite of mine, because I'm sure there's a lot of people who support my least favorite Nintendo character, Princess Peach.

You can like Sonic all you want, I won't hold it against you. I actually don't know enough about him/follow the series enough to truly justify my hatred.

Also, anyone who tries to support Princess Peach will fail, because there is nothing good you can say about her XD

I felt the need to formally apologize here for trying to convince you that the Smash Bros 4 leak was fake. It is true and I had no grounds for discounting it, aside from my intuition. However, I hope that you, like me, can come to like it, even if it isn't what we were expecting. Either way, Smash 4 should be amazing and I hope you enjoy playing it :D

ok, I'm 99% sure that one is fake. If it isn't, Nintendo is off of its rocker. Dr. Mario is not returning, the screen doesn't even look authentic to the Smash Bros style, and there were a lot of things about the leak that seemed fishy and downright too stupid to be true.

I'm not saying I have hard evidence against it, but using logic and common video game sense, I can't imagine this leak could be true.
