Not sure if this is unpopular, but I'd rather have seen a FE character with a weapon style other than swords over Lucina. Robin, at least, is partially magic, but the series is more than "SWORDS SWORDS SWORDS". It's more ridiculous in my eyes considering Ike actually is capable of using axes and not just swords.

Better, have a playable archer character mounted on a dragon or a pegasus.

That would be interesting.

No, it's not impossible at all. I can even imagine it.

Just have the dragon be the melee attacker while the archer can attack with B, B>, Bv, etc.

Yeah it garners a misconception towards people who aren't familiar with Fire Emblem

Such as me.

I don't think there are any dragon/pegasus riders that can wield bows. There are horse mounted ones that can do it though.

I haven't played Fire Emblem, but I've seen trophies of people riding dragons and horses, so yeah, have some playable characters like that. They're certainly different from the rest of the Super Smash Bros. cast on that respect alone.

Or being able to play as a Laguz.

Seriously, there are so many weapons types that it's ridiculous just to use swords even without bringing mounted/transforming/etc. classes into this.

  • Robin didn't deserve to be playable.
  • Charizard and Lucario didn't deserve to return.
  • I like Ganondorf as a clone of Falcon.
  • Daisy should be playable or at least a costume for Peach (and not a lame one like brawl).
  • Diancie would be a cool Pokémon addition.
  • Sylux would be a better addition than Ridley.

Robin is at least bringing a unique style into things. I can overlook the fact that there are better series reps than Robin due to him bringing something different to the series.

I'd be down for Sylux, if it came to that. Rundas would be pretty cool.

I hate that *bleep*.

I don't like some visually jarring crap interrupting the flow of a really busy fight.

Also, Charizard is an awful addition, especially when Ivysaur and Squirtle are likely to be left out.

And this is why I like him so much.  It creates a lot of chaos.  Also, I would rather not fight at all and just focus on what Resetti is saying, because he is so entertaining.

I'm fighting CPUs, who will stop at nothing to try to kill me, so yeah, I can't have that 5-minute long giant fly splat all over my screen.

And this is coming from someone who plays with 2.0 ratio. Smart Bombs and Blast Boxes are on super high, and the stage is Wario Ware.

Obnoxious text bubbles just doesn't match it, IMO. Neither are those overpowered stage hazards in Brawl. It's not fun.

What kills New Pork City, ultimately, it its bad stage layout, in my opinion, not the stage hazard.

Whatever barf and fart Dialga, Palkia, and Cresselia spews out in Spear Pillar is infinitely worse than a small, slow moving stage hazard.
