This is Geno from Super Mario RPG as a Smash character! It was made in collaboration with Zesiul

Those of you who have followed my work over the years might remember my old Brawl Geno that I made way back in the day:

Geno of Brawl

Boy how things change. =P This new version of Geno is a lot more faithful to the original character design from SMRPG with some added details to things like the joints to make him feel like a real wood doll and to make him feel at home among the highly detailed character iterations of Smash 4.

I felt that the Mii Costume design in Smash 4 made a lot of compromises to make it fit the general proportions of the Mii Gunner. So I wanted to make sure this design brought it back to the original design with those new touches to make the character feel modern without losing the character's identity.


Other stuff. Feel free to download and use them for stuff, but please credit if you publish it!

Geno's making it in to Smash Ultimate, I can feel it! XD This artwork looks just like what he would in Smash Ultimate! Texture, shadows, EVERYTHING! XD

Geno is one of the characters that people have asked for FOR AGES! If fact, he was one of the Holy trinity! Now that two of the 'Holy Trinity' are in ( Ridley and K Rool ), why leave out Geno?

Moveset:

Neutral Special - Geno Beam

Side Special - Geno Whirl

Up Special - Geno Boost

Down Special - Geno Blast

Final Smash - Geno Flash

It's time he got in! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> maybe next time you can do a Smashified version of Waluigi and Spring Man!

Hmmm, you did a OK job to make this Critique about Geno. Normally i just wander around seeing critiques from other deviations and in some of them i place ":oops: ?" (it means "What?", " I can't understand" or "Is this a joke?").
Ok back to this, the moveset for him is...Good enough for him i guess (If Masahiro Sakurai even tries to place him in the roster), and let me tell you something. He was requested since 2008 in Snake's trailer in Brawl (i may place you the link to that decade old trailer).
I fairly go for him in a 50-50 chance, since i wanted to play a fair bet if he comes in the roster or not.
That's all i can give. Good job!

So, this is your new smashified character, eh? Well, let's take a look.

First, let me look at the details. Detail wise, it's impressive. As I noticed, there are a few screws on Geno's joints, which really helps in showing him off as a puppet. I also like how his cap is rendered to look like it's made of cloth, which really helps to make it feel like it was drawn/made by someone on the Super Smash Bros. dev team. Getting back to the joints, I also like how you make them look spherical and look like their connecting his limbs and body together.

Second, I discuss the appearance. Appearance wise, he looks pretty accurate. What I especially like is how the wood that makes up his body actually looks like wood. In addition, the eyes are also done well with their "blank" appearance, which only helps to sell that the whole thing of Geno being a puppet.

In essance, this is simply put, a wonderful deviation. Keep on making your

I am very impressed by this particular design for your Smashified art! The details in Geno are spectacular, from the wood patterns to the cape and hat's clothing detail. Even having the tiny screws on his legs add a sense of detail and character to Geno, and it helps to make him look like his video game counterpart. The way you did his expression was very simplistic, yet very effective at the same time. (I'd be a bit intimidated by his look if he were in Smash!) This is by far one of your best Smashified characters to date and I look forward to seeing more in the future!

Just thought I'd mention that Operation StarFall, that thing that started out as a petition to get Nintendo and Square Enix to utilize the characters from Super Mario RPG more, up to and including seeing Geno in Smash Bros., now has a website and multiple social media outlets.  They've also got lots of plans and things to share to keep the buzz on this game and its characters flowing, so I highly recommend checking them out.

Official website (make a wish here): operationstarfall.com/index.ph…
Original Petition (from January 2019): www.change.org/p/nintendo-oper…

Tumblr account coming soon.

The day this character gets in Smash Ultimate will bring one grand celebration upon fans.

Geno might be next to be in Smash Ultimate. With other near-obscure characters like King K. Rool being in the game and other Smashified characters like Ridley and Inklings are getting added, Geno is likely gonna be next. Sakurai even wanted him in Smash since Brawl.
