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...)
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
i.imgur.com/NAxBPX2.png Sure is Bowser-sized Ridley nowadays. And on an unrelated note, let's talk about some characters who have never and would never make it into Smash.
What would Link, Marth, Roy, Ike, Meta Knight, or Pit do in their movesets? Cutting people? lol What would Samus, Fox, Falco, Mega Man, or Wolf do in their movesets? Shooting people? lol What would Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Mario, Luigi, Wario, Little Mac, or Captain Falcon do in their movesets? Punching people? lol What would Pikachy even do in its moveset? Shocking people? lol
lolololol OLOLOL oh wait. I accidentally forgot how flimsy this argument is.
I'm gonna have to go through each of these chararcters now aren't I... *sigh*
Mario gets his moveset from Mario games (64, Galaxy, Sunshine). Luigi got his moves from Mario but they made Luigi wimpier. Warios moves are based on his personallity and games like Wario World and Wario Land. Little Mac punches... the charge meter thing came from Super Punch-out [I think], plus hes a boxer... his moveset is kinda easy to make. Captain Falcon is very different, no one had ever really seen him outside his vehicle and they completely made him up. I don't know much about the Kongs but I know some of their moves game from DK games and such (DK slamming the ground maybe) also BANANAS and MONKAYZ Pikachu... he has many moves that could easily be made into a fighter, thundershock, thunder bolt, sure they are all based around shocking but they all have different... things. properties... and such. y'know? Fox is kinda like Captain Falcon [I honestly dunno crap about Star Fox], as far as I know he also was never out of his ship before Smash 64. Falco = Fox with some changes. Wolf = More powerful, slow Fox. Again, some changes. [Again I don't know crap about Fire Emblem] Marth, Roy and Ike, I thiink they all have their own moves in Fire Emblem games, Dunno what they are. [Metroid, another one I don't know much about] Samus can go in a ball, Samus can do the eletric jump thing, Samus can shoot missles. Mega Man, it's impossible to not make a moveset with him. Meta Knight, I dunno, he flies, they based all his moves around flying and such. He has a sword, so he also slashes, they made him fast, give him fast slashes. Pit, I don't even know how many Kid Icarus games there are but I'm gonna go with the Captain Falcon thing again. He was only on the NES at this point I think. So he can fly and stuff. Also, Sakurai helped on Kid Icarus Uprising so Sakurai probably made his moves in Smash for what his moves in that game were going to be.
Ridley, as far as I know, just slashes Samus, picks her up and slams her off stuff, flies off screen and rams shit and thats all. (Also apparently Meta-Ridley can shoot fireballs from his mouth in brawl, dunno if thats actually a thing in games)
You're missing the point. You COMPLETELY missed the point. The fact of the matter is, you can simplify a character to "just slashing lol" as much as you want. Nobody is stopping you from being that much of a simple person. But you can simplify ANYONE to that level. *ANYONE*. Ridley's abilities involve "slashing lol", aerial grabs, a uniquely rope-like tail with a blade for spearing attacks, a multitude of breath attacks, skin hardening, regeneration, and none of this even accounts for his appearances as Meta or Omega Ridley.
You go right on ahead and simplify it to "slashing lol", but that makes you look like a complete moron on top of just being incorrect.
