The walls for who gets into Smash Bros keeps getting lower.
Super Smash Bros (Only Nintendo All-Stars)
Super Smash Bros Melee (Only Nintendo Characters )
Super Smash Bros Brawl(Only Characters that appeared on Nintendo consoles)
Super Smash Bros 4 (Any Video game character)
Super Smash Bros Ultimate (Any character that appeared on a video game?)
I wouldn't be surprised if Goku is in the game to be honest. After Cloud got in I realized that there are no rules. If there are rules then they WILL eventually get broken. Smash Bros characters are like a slippery slope now.
Lol come on Ness is a Nintendo All-Star? Also Snake was originally supposed to be in Melee, so clearly the "rule" for getting into Smash was already wide open by then.
There's only ever been one rule, and that's videogame characters. Obviously at the start, with smaller resources and time, Nintendo was always gonna focus on their own first because it's that much easier, faster and cheaper. Anything else is just your entitlement to specific rules for what can and can't be in Smash, because you're too annoyed by the presence of characters other people want in the game.
Edit: and by the way every character in Smash 4 has appeared on Nintendo consoles.Last edited by mZuzek - on 13 August 2018
