The Geno Topic

Recently, I've been seeing quite a bit of Geno hate going around (particularly in the Super Smash Bros. Brawl topics), so I thought I'd go ahead and throw this one out there. Why do people hate this guy so much? I, for one, thought he was one of the most useful party members that Super Mario RPG had to offer. He had high attack power, along with some powerful magic abilities, which involve raising attack power and defense, killing several enemies on screen at once, and the Geno Whirl, which takes away 9,999 of the enemies' HP. To me, he's kind of like the Vivian of Super Mario RPG.

He was definently the best and most useful partner like Vivian and (for me) Watt. It's not that I hate him, it's just that he doesn't really appeal to me. Most people feel the same way about Daisy. Also, I would rather see Vivian or Bobbery go into the next SSB instead of Geno. I totally agree we need RPG characters, but I don't believe Geno would be my first choice.

Seems so long ago.
The reason why people hate him is because so many wanted him in Brawl/the next SSB game.

Geno= overated. Not saying he doesnt deserve a spot in future games, Hes just too hyped.

Geno is as important to the Mario franchise as any other RPG partner (minus Peach and Bowser in SMRPG of course). Sure he's cool in his respective game, but that's where he should stay. All these rabid Geno fanboys trying to get him into every game even remotely possible for a Geno appearance make him hard to like.

You got it perfectly. I completely agree with that post.

He's not a bad character at all, but he's too much powerful. Seriously, he's even more powerful than Mario ! What's good when having a video game where a secondary hero is more powerful than the main hero ?

Plus he's too overrated.

This. And as someone else mentioned, his design plain doesn't fit with the other characters.
