i just imagine Ridley Down Sized....he might even resemble a bit like charizard but it doesn't matter, maybe it's time to give Ridley a chance...hey! when i first saw ridley in smash bros melee, i thought he was an unlockable character...but my mind blew up that he wasn't....i would love to play as ridley...heck..Sakurai makes his Choises.... Maybe he might i just don't know....

any metroid fan wants Ridley....i have never played metroid before...but i sure did saw metroid.. this speech has been way to long XP

i have something to say....Ridley isn't big for smash.... Sakurai stated... "the smash bros Series Doesn't stay true to scale..." in the pic of the day...from the NintendoDogs pic with the characters.. 

fans have their opinion to want ridley in smash, others have an opinion not too....this is the internet..but meh... it will be cool to have Ridley... 

it can be a wish come true for the fans of smash and metroid. :3

There is a Dark Secret to this, Sakurai showed a Shadow on the smash revealed where the stage of metroid was.... the shadow was Ridley....or maybe it was Meta Ridley... Maybe Ridley is a Boss or Stage Hazard... Sakurai Desides what he should be, i'm not saying he should be playable...but i know what sakurai wants to do... let sakurai do what he wants... he's the Directer of Smash after all... 

Who knows if Ridley is Playable or not.... it might even be a Mystery...or some Theory that he is playable or a Boss or Stage Hazard... this can go on.... but meh... i don't have time to Explain this.... (Also Ridley is still a character that might be in smash.. since there's only 1 character from metroid in smash... there are other characters that can Maybe be added in.... Examples: Dixie Kong, Mewtwo(i'm not to sure...), and other fan Favorites...)

Anyone who thinks Ridley's too big for Smash is a shit-kicking, stinky, horse-manure-smellin' motherfucker them!

I'm okay with Ridley. He's much more deserving to be playable than Palutena or anybody from Kid Icarus besides Pit.

That said, Goemon, Isaac, Paper Mario, Rhythm Heaven Girl, and Alex Roivas for Smash 4!

First of all, this art is freaking awesome. The detail and shadow effects you got here are simply incredible.

But honestly, I'm not a fan of Ridley being in Super Smash Bros. The problem with scaling down his size would be that he would feel a lot less powerful. If I'm going to play as Ridley, I want to fly around at sonic speeds and feel like I can rip through anything and anyone with no opposition. I feel like making him smaller and weaker to fit into the Smash universe would kind of ruin the fun.

Thanks, but think of his legacy man!  The Mario series had over 6 characters, Zelda had 4, and pokemon have like 7... Metroid has 1

Metroid is much more deserving than any other franchise to have another rep, and the only one as frequent as Samus is her rival Ridley

And you wouldn't have to nerf his sheer brutality just because he'd be shrunken a bit: Bowser's a quarter of what his size should be and he's still a brute, and Captain Olimar is supposed to be the size of a quarter...

I can see his mobility to be his greatest asset, but also his greatest flaw: as in, he's fast and powerful, but his moves would be easily punishable

That's a good point. I always thought if Metroid had another rep, it would be Weavel or Sylux from Prime Hunters, since they both have a history with Samus.

That's true - if they made him fast and strong, but lighter weight and having lower priority, that could work out well.
