Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Smash Bros. Bosses?

We've talked a lot about characters we'd want to be playable in Smash, stages we'd like in Smash, music we'd like in Smash, etc.

Looking back at Smash Bros. Ultimate's Classic Mode bosses, I've found the variety of them to be rather lacking.

Sure, we've got Giga Bowser for Mario and Peach, Marx for Kirby, Ganon for Link and Zelda, but most fighters end up just fighting Master Hand and/or Crazy Hand. I feel the unique bosses aspect of Classic Mode could've been taken a lot further.

I'm surprised that for Shulk's Classic Mode run that you don't fight Metal Face from Xenoblade Chronicles, or a suped up King K. Rool for Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong's Classic Modes. Some of the arrangements with what we have make sense, like Dracula for both the Belmonts and Luigi, but why Dracula for Pac-Man as well?

What are some boss characters you'd have liked to see in Smash? :)



Around the Network

Metal Face and Yellow Devil are two obvious ones. Im surprised that no legendary pokemon were made into bosses. Dialga, Palkia, Zekrom, Reshiram, even bring Rayquaza back from Subspace.



Majora for Young Link. Metal Gear for Snake. Metroid Queen for Zero Suit.

^This! Wasted opportunities!

Why not Metroid Queen for normal Samus too?

How about Giant Baby Bowser for Yoshi or Porky for Ness and Lucas?



I'm pretty sure those bosses weren't made for Classic Mode...



Around the Network

Sonic has a lot of options to choose from in this regard. It actually makes me disappointed to think about
- Perfect Chaos (SA1)
- Biolizard/Finalhazard (SA2)
- Metal Overlord (Heroes)
- Devil Doom, (Shadow the Hedgehog) this would have been perfect to have if Shadow were an echo fighter.
- Solaris ('06)
- Dark Gaia (Unleashed)
- Time Eater (Generations)

And then there's all the different mechs that Dr. Eggman has used like the Death Egg Robot, or the Egg Emperor, or the Egg Dragoon!

I didn't want it to be exhaustive! I would love to have Mother Brain in her final form from Super Metroid for Samus. Sephiroth for Cloud?

If they convince Square to do that, yes! :D

What do you mean exhaustive?



I would have liked them to use the assist trophies for some bosses, up their moves and have a health bar, like Rathalos, at that point you already have a functional model is just about programming it as a boss.

Fighting the Black Knight as Ike would have been an amazing treat to one of FE's most iconic moments, same applies to assists like Andross, Goroh and Mother Brain. Real shame about Metal Face, since he has like 2 hours worth of voice lines.

Yeah, Goroh, Mother Brain and Black Knight would've been great for their respective fighters! Though if they used the functioning Andross assist trophy model they'd have to program in a way to attack him.
