Nankoro's hellfire wrath by UMSAuthorLava
Nankoro's hellfire wrath
:iconcommentplz: Or vice-versa.

Partially an excuse to draw Nankoro Ryuto again. But mostly a chance to test out some basic coloring/lighting techniques in Fireworks. Might've gone a little overboard, does it look?

Teddy Girl
:iconcommentplz: Or vice-versa.

Just a mere filler pic. Just a girl naked on some gradient-designed bed with a big teddy mask and bound in pink ribbons.

Make of it what you will.

Who's the freak next door, making all this crazy artwork?
(You better know my name cause I'm...)
He's inspired by Japan and his insert has no eyeballs~
(The eye sockets shoot blood and Chacarron)

Don't let yourself be fooled by his chibi appearance~
(You better be afraid of...)
He doesn't play with guns, and he never does narcotics~
(Who has time for stupid things like that?)

Lava's phones, I'm really not alone~
Bleskaze, writing's underway~
Zenmei's blade, must get pictures made~
Kyodai no pantsu! (Ah hell, not again...)

He can rule the world, and still finish his commissions~
(Everyone knows I'm the craziest)
You better watch your step or he'll spaz out on you~
(I turned Karasz into a baseball)

I'm all wrapped in my art, and I guess it's true, yar~
I don't have as many friends as you~
But I think you're nice, and maybe we can be frieeeeends...
...and if you say no, YOU'RE OKTOROK~

Who's the freak next door, making all this crazy artwork?

So what are the votes so far?

So I've taken the first/second-party characters in the list shown in the previous journal - because using any third-party character would logically be pricier - and will see how likely they'd be. But I'll be sorting them into franchise groups first. So! Let's see what we got...

-= MARIO =-
Paper Mario
- This is actually a pretty solid choice (despite the lack of width, ohohoho). Despite being a "Mario", his papery physics would let him play completely differently. Now, I doubt he'd go crazy with partner abilities, but he could use other things like the "curses" from Thousand-Year Door, badge-enabled attacks like Quake Hammer, stickers for equipping (C'mon, this would be an awesome idea!), and just the occasional Pixl (like Thoreau for a long grab, like Pac-Man's Galaga tractor beam).
Toad OR Captain Toad
- Again, a sensible choice. Either way. Toad has become such a big part of the Mario series, it's a wonder he hasn't gotten a slot. The regular Toad could utilize various Mushrooms, like mushroom trampolines, Mushroom Blocks, or a Mega Mushroom Final Smash. Captain Toad might make use of throwing items, the Super Pickaxe, maybe part of a mechanic that changes his weight depending on how loaded his backpack is.
- ...Well, her number of nominations is so great, I wouldn't be surprised. But I doubt it. Still, who am I to judge? I mean, I guess she could be used to rep the Mario sports games (though I'd prefer that role to go to Waluigi).
Shy Guy, Birdo, Fawful, Mr. L, Cat Mario, Vivian, Wart, Rawk Hawk
- I...I don't even. Vivian and Rawk Hawk are being suggested again? What is this, 2006?
King K. Rool
- ...Sure, why not. He's so requested, he may as well be DLC already. But I'm going to expect something interesting from his playstyle! I ain't paying money for a bland fighter. And yet these Blunderbuss and Klaptrap specials that everyone suggests seem too similar to Bowser Jr.'s Clown Cannon and Mechakoopa (even if the Klaptrap doesn't explode). Sorry if I come off as pretentious here, but I'm pretty sure that as far as DLC newcomers are concerned, the staff is gonna be looking for more unique playstyles. K. Rool's movepool...just doesn't bring that to mind.
Dixie Kong, Lanky Kong, Funky Kong
- ...Bleh. Do they have anything new to add? And how long has it been since Lanky was relevant?
-= YOSHI =-
- This was actually suggested. But, uh...I'll have to say this doesn't have a chance.
- Mona's got so many occupations, it shouldn't be hard to make a good moveset for her even with just one. Heck, she could use her paparazzi skills from Game & Wario to snap pictures of opponents, maybe to gain knowledge of them and deal more damage...Yeah, I know that sounds like Frank West, but she could lose that "info" if KOed and will have to start again.
- It might be fun to have 9-Volt using a bunch of classic Nintendo games as the basis for his moves, the same time, I feel that wouldn't be enough to make him a fresh fighter.
- Interesting choice. But how often have we seen Impa fight (besides Hyrule Warriors)? How do you know Sakurai won't just make Impa into a Sheik-clone? After all, Impa was the inspiration for Zelda's Sheik-disguise.
- This would be a good choice. A chance to unleash his true magical might with javelins and whatnot. assuming you're talking about the bipedal Ganon and not what Ganondorf uses for his Final Smash.
- ...Really?
- I'm not entirely sure that they're going to do Hyrule Warriors-exclusive characters. But Lana could provide all sorts of options - barriers, Deku plants, using the summoning gate in all sorts of crazy ways...
Groose, Tetra, Zant, Vaati, Fi, Ravio
- Not so sure about one-timers.
Young Link, Toon Zelda, Toon Ganondorf
- And then I watch as all three become unwanted clones that have little deviation from the originals. Come on, people. Have you not picked up on the Smash logic yet?
-= KIRBY =-
Bandana Dee
- A popular one, and rightfully so. Being playable in Return to Dreamland has since made him a fan-favorite. So much so that he returned in Triple Deluxe as a helping character! He could utilize his spear in several ways, maybe command Waddle Doos, and possibly unleash the Megaton Punch...
Galacta Knight
- I, uh...Sorry, but this might end up as a Meta Knight clone.
Prince Fluff
- I gotta say, this would be a great way to use the skills of Epic Yarn. He could use patches for, say, constructing platforms or obstacles or such...
Ivysaur, Pichu, Squirtle
- I applaud whoever voted for these for their wishful thinking, but...I just don't see any of these coming back. Pichu wasn't exactly welcomed in Melee's long run, and there's only so much Squirtle and Ivysaur can do on their own.
- HOENN CONFIRMED. That is all. I know the true logic behind this.
Pokémon Trainer, N
- Sakurai said that there wouldn't be any form-changing, so I don't think there'll be any Trainers fighting. Unless...wait, you really...? Okay, that's just more ridiculous. Sakurai pretty much stated back in Brawl that Pokémon Trainers don't do the fighting themselves - they direct their Pokémon to victory. So this won't work at all.
- A popular choice from Gen-6. Though I'd say Greninja filled the niche that the devs had in mind, so...sorry, Hawlucha.
- Ehehehe...This would be the Poké-underdog that I contributed to. I just think a Gen-5 Grass starter would fill the starter circle best, since there's a Gen-5 stage. I don't see a Gen-3 stage in these games...Anyway, Serperior would definitely make for a more unique fighter than Sceptile, I'm certain. But for now, this is just wishful thinking...
- This could work. Just...make Jirachi float closer to the ground so it won't be considered OP for avoiding most down tilts.
Parasect, Exeggutor, Seedot
- ...What.
Rundas, Sylux, Anthony Higgs
- I get that these one-offs are popular and all. I just don't think this is what Sakurai's looking for in a Metroid rep.
-= STAR FOX =-
- I used to haze on Wolf early on too for being kinda similar to Fox. Then I gradually realized how different he actually is. And how fun he is to play as. So...I say bring him back, too! And maybe just change his Final Smash. Demon Sniper Rifle!
- A VERY popular choice! Apparently, Japan also wants to see Krystal smash it up. And hey, with the new Star Fox coming in possibly a matter of months, she could give greenlight to that.
Slippy Toad
- ...And if nothing else, Slippy could come in and use more firepower than Fox or Falco use. After all, who do you think designs those weapons?
Kumatora, Duster
- Kumatora already gave her PSI to Lucas. And Duster already gave Lucas the Rope Snake.
Porky Minch
- Probably, if you sized down his bed-mech some.
- I feel this would be make a real moveset from, if you know what I mean. What makes Giygas all the more threatening is that you can't tell what he's doing exactly.
New Age Retro Hippie
- Pfff...sure. Whatever.

- ...ARE YOU SERIOUS. Roy is already in the game!
- Hey, could help to have an axe user in the game. And he technically did appear in more than one FE. But...oh. He'd just play like a short-ranged Ike. Never mind.
Black Knight
- Look, I get it. "SMASH NEED MOAR BAD GUYZ". Did I get your thoughts right?
New Fire Emblem Lord
- Are you talking about the protagonist of FE14? How would you make him/her different from Robin or the swordfighters, exactly?
- Could help to have someone who exclusively uses dark tomes. would we explain her having unlimited durability in her tomes while Robin...? And her trophy being removed due to being too sexy for the rating...?
- She DOES technically appear in almost every Fire Emblem...She might be another swordfighter, though. But...maybe an acrobatic swordfighter? Hm...probably.
Tiki, Ranulf
- Now see! THIS is a good example of unique gameplay ideas. It would definitely flesh out the FE group more to have a shapeshifter like a manakete or laguz. Perhaps their specials could be exclusive to their beastly forms. It's just a shame that in the list, their rankings are so low...
-= F-ZERO =-
Black Shadow
- If you want a harder-hitting Captain Falcon, we have Ganondorf. You're welcome.
-= PIKMIN =-
Brittany, Captain Charlie
- Look, don't take this the wrong way, but this won't work. Olimar/Alph already has the Pikmin gimmick going. What else would Brittany or Charlie have going?
Hades, Medusa
- YES. These are the only KI character requests not already used in Assist Trophies or stages. And either one would work wonders! Hades could definitely have a befitting trolling style, possibly as a trapmaster. And Medusa...oh, it would be sweet to send petrified foes plummeting into the abyss...!
Fiora, Reyn, Melia
- I'm actually not sure if Xenoblade would get another fighter. Though I'd say from these three, the only workable choices without making any major changes to the game as we know it...The best of these would be Fiora, specifically in her Machina form. Like in Xenoblade, she could use various support drones to reinforce her defense or press her attack. And she could use her faced-Mechon form as a Final Smash...
-= OTHER =-
Shovel Knight
- No doubt the most requested. Shovel Knight is one of the greatest indie games to be graced by Nintendo. However...considering Shovel Knight's not exactly Nintendo-exclusive...
- This genie from WayForward has the same qualifications as Shovel Knight, really. Both are indie games that were featured heavily with Nintendo...except Shantae was with Nintendo for much longer, ever since 2003 on the GameBoy Color. Plus, being a genie, she could definitely have a tricky moveset in mind.
Isaac, Matthew
- OH YES. The hype is real for Golden Sun. Though I worry that the series has been dead for quite some time. Seems the only way a nostalgic dead series can be repped is if it was on the NES. But tell that to the hype train line. I'll just be on the fence with this.
Ice Climbers
- {sigh} I feel you, people. I miss the Ice Climbers, too. But Sakurai didn't want one roster in these equal games to be bigger than the other, so he had no choice but to axe them for now. We have to look at this from a logical perspective, people.
- I fully support this. With Splatoon coming and everyone excited, it wouldn't be much of a stretch to bring in the Inklings. They could use a special gimmick with their ink, on the ground and maybe on opponents, and employ a trapping style.
- I was...slightly down-trodden to find that Mr. Wedgewood missed his chance. After all, The Wonderful 101 is one of the most popular action games on the Wii U, and there's so much to do with his Unite Hand and especially other Wonderful Ones' Unite Morphs. Will they be involved? Who knows.
Chorus Men, Karate Joe, Wrestler & Reporter, Marshal, Rhythm Girl
- Let's face it. Everyone who is ANYONE wants a Rhythm Heaven character. And I support this! I only doubt the Chorus Men for the same reason I doubt Ice Climbers. Maybe Sakurai was making Chorus Men, but when he found an issue with Ice Climbers, he dropped the Chorus as well. Still, it'd be neat to employ a rhythm mechanic in the playstyle.
Chibi Robo
- While I would normally state the same reason I doubt Isaac/Matthew, Chibi Robo DID get an AR-based title. And his energy mechanic could easily be applied for something interesting.
Henry Fleming, Abraham Lincoln
- It would really be awesome to get someone from Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. in Smash! Although, we only see Lincoln fight when Lady Liberty goes into mech mode, so let's look to Henry. His specials could involves various sub-weapons. I've only just gotten to playing it, so I can't suggest many subs for him to use. I just doubt the Medi-Carbine would help him in solo play.
- ...
Ray Mk3
- Er...I'm not sure. Unless Nintendo's announcing something to revive Custom Robo, this might not be happening.
Excitebiker, Mach Rider, Balloon Fighter, Sukapon, Mike Jones, Milon, Urban Champion
- As I said, the only dead series that get introduced into Smash these days seem to be the ones that started on the NES. So hey, any of these? I wouldn't doubt them. Sakurai has fleshed out old classic characters in many creative ways. Could work the same for most of these.
4th Mii Fighter
- ...Are you serious? The three Mii Fighter types are based around three standard playstyles - rushdown, defensive/heavy-hitting, and zoning. What fourth playstyle would there be?
Andy, Sami
- I guess we could use a Nintendo Wars commander. But how would s/he fight on his/her own?
Captain Rainbow
- Now this would be a prime choice! I don't know enough about the game, but there could be something thought up for this yo-yo-slinging superhero.
Tetris Block
- ...What.
- Well, what saves this one's chances is that we have an item from her game, so her foot's a few inches further into the door than Isaac's! And if no one else is available to inflict flower status easily, Lip could do that. Maybe even meteor smash with trash blocks?
- I'm...actually not sure about this. Too many reasons to explain. Firstly, what would be unique about his playstyle? And what would keep him from being too OP?
Savvy Stylist
- Sure, why not. The game has lots of options. Let's just hope it doesn't screw with palette choices...
- I could get behind this. The Pushmo series has definitely changed the world of puzzle-platformers for the easygoing crowd. There's gotta be a way to use his puzzle-pulling/pushing abilities for Smash...
- I suppose there could be room. I mean, his game was part of Operation Rainfall's efforts, after all. And JRPGs generally have tons of options for unique movesets.
- Apparently, a cult classic. I would throw in the same argument I made for Golden Sun about dead series, but...I'll just be on the fence here.
Ryota Hayami
- How would he fight in Smash? On his jet-ski? Seems a bit impractical... top picks from this list overall? Especially considering uniqueness? It's a handful, but I'd say:

Paper Mario Starts a New Chapter!
Captain Toad Ventures Forth!
Mona Delivers Hot!
Ganon Dominates!
Bandana Dee Waddles In!
Serperior Blossoms!
Wolf Is On the Prowl!
Krystal Brings the Freeze!
Slippy Comes Guns Blazing!
Tiki Awakens!
Hades Rules All!
Fiora Arises!
Shovel Knight Can Dig It!
Shantae Enchants!
Inkling Splatters the Competition!
Wonder-Red Unites Up!
(Rhythm Heaven character) Brings the Groove!
Chibi Robo Charges Up!
Henry Fleming Gets Steamed!

How would you rate any of these choices yourselves? Please, tell below.
  • Mood: Disbelief
  • Drinking: Spit
