What i'm getting at is that what you said is not true, Cloud is not the only iconic FF character qualified to join Smash. Terra could have easily made the game and would've been more appropriate since she was on a Nintendo platform. Sakurai ignored this and chose Cloud because he is indeed the most popular FF character out there so Sakurai just made him an exception but then again who remembered Ice Climbers?
I personally don't know any Final Fantasy characters outside of Cloud and Chocobo and anyone i've talked to that has no idea about Final Fantasy can only name Cloud. I know thats anecdotal, but if it was gonna be any Final Fantasy character it would've had to have been the most well known.
I'm sure i've never switched on that part. Look, ROB is a Nintendo accessory, not a videogame character. But of course some people love to play dumb, come up with strawmen arguments and ignore the fact that we've got a Smash character that did not originate as a videogame character but as a toy. Just like the other guy said we've got the Super Scope, another Nintendo accessory, as an item in the game but somehow ROB got his own character slot... Why not then make a character slot for the Power Glove? I'm okay with ROB being a character, he's already there since Brawl, but then there's not reason to reject Goku for not originating as a videogame character. It makes no sense and it's hypocritical.
Because unlike the Power Glove ROB's a character. It's a toy thats a character like GI Joe. A better example would be Non-Specific Action figure, the E3 2012 (or 11?) meme from Nintendo. That was a toy that was also a character, comparing them to the Power Glove or a Rumble Pak doesn't work because those aren't characters. Nintendo has also treated ROB as a character with various cameo's and being an unlockable character in Mario Kart DS and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Edit: Perhaps people used poor choice of words and it lead to some confusion. Its more than Goku not being a video game character. Goku didn't originate from video games, but ROB did since he's a video game accessory. It's okay for him to be in because he's deeply rooted to video games and Nintendo, we didn't want him, but it's forgivable due to his roots. Goku did not originate from video games and is not Nintendo related, thats why we reject him.
Yeah, you still haven't responded to my post where you flat out lied but i'll just say this...
I think you misunderstood him.
ROB is a video game accessory, which means he originated from video games.Last edited by Shaqazooloo0 - on 01 April 2018
