MK is not MK without their fatalities, and so would be out of place in Smash.
I don't want to see any Nintendo character fatalatized either and I doubt many companies would want their mascots/brands being fatalatized as well, so disregard Nintendo, I don't see many companies wanting their characters in MK period.
MK vs DC Universe came up with something different. Perhaps non-lethal finishers would be created for Ridley. Extra time and effort, but it would be cool!
Yes, I want a Nintendo character in Mario Kart 11 and a Mario Kart character in Smash Bros Ultimate.
OT: Wouldn't mind Scorpion to be in Smash Ultimate though and I'm bored with Mortal Kombat right now so no idea what Nintendo characters I'd want to be in it.
Haha, I could go for 8 new courses via two DLC packs in 2019!
Probably Sub-Zero or Scorpion. They seem to be the face of the franchise now. Also with one of them in their original suit, they can just have color schemes so you can be Reptile, Rain, Ermac, Noob Saibot, Smoke etc.
Good idea with the costume colors!
At first, I thought no, but then, thinking about it, I think it could work. They'd have to have the Smash MK character draw out sweat instead of blood, in an homage to the original SNES controversy. Sub-Zero would be the obvious choice since he's iconic enough and could have a fatality where he just froze people and shattered them, a fitting fatality to represent the series while not involving blood and gore. For the Nintendo character in MK, they couldn't do any of the characters that were even remotely cute, good, or wholesome, but some villains could work. Even Bowser would be too wholesome for MK though, and I don't even think Nintendo would be fine with Ganondorf getting his spine ripped out. Ridley, on the other hand? Just imagine his skewering tail from the Smash reveal trailer on Mario, except uncensored, and against an MK character. Really, Ridley's the only Nintendo character brutal enough that I could see him fighting in MK, and since he's a monster no one would care if he were chopped to bits or gored. He'd have alien blood too probably, so Nintendo could even avoid that issue. He's had an exposed heart in the Prime games, and it was orange, so case in point, he's a fairly brutal character and a good fit for the series as far as Nintendo characters go, while also having likely orange blood so Nintendo can avoid any more gorey an association with the character than necessary. It could be a way for Nintendo to court a hardcore audience they don't normally reach to try out a critically acclaimed but underselling franchise that might appeal to them. Prime 4 deserves all the spotlight it can get.
See, now that is some good thinking. Thank you for your input. And I agree, Metroid Prime 4 getting any outside, extra attention is a good thing!
Not quite Nintendo, but I would fully support putting Sonic in MK just for the opportunity to rip his spine out.
No way. Have you seen the trailer?
A mario character does not have enough body parts to last 1 round let alone three
No, it would be terrible.
There are better characters to add in MK than a Nintendo character and better characters to add to Smash bros than a MK character.
Who else would you like to enter SSBU? And any top Western choices by any chance?
But I don't have any history with the MK series so it doesn't really affect me :p
Yeah if you don’t have a history with it, I guess that’s another story.
I think Kirby is strongest in current smash . He isn't stronger than The one above all (stan Lee) in marvel Ultimate alliance 3 or DC characters like The presence I think Superman from Superman 64 beats kirby or other way around but no one beats presence and TOAA or other characters not in current smash :D
Kirby wouldn’t even bleed. Perfect choice!
