Welcome to the 12th edition of Rate That Character Round Up!
Begining this week, Zedi rates Reimu Hakurei from the Touhou series!
Verdict: Reimu would be an awesome addition to the roster as she is a character with a lot of history and to many is seen as an iconic character. Being unknown outside of Japan and from an independent game series makes a future in Smash seems like a dim dream especially after Sakurai revealed there would only be a few newcomers in Ultimate. However with increasing relevance outside of Japan, and the massive popularity she has in Japan I have a mountain of faith that Sakurai is highly responsive to my prayers and gives me one of my ten desires for Smash- or maybe this is all just a hopeless masquerade so I can get some Touhou bangers. With all that said here’s the final rating:
NantenJex serves up a dish that’s best served cold: sushi! He rates Musashi from Sushi Striker.
Verdict: There is just too much against Musashi appearing in Smash. The biggest issue is that they were created too late, potentially after all of the characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate had been decided. We might get some music from Sushi Striker after all that main theme would be amazing to smash too. But, unfortunately, this is one character I am going to have to send back to the kitchen.
PushDustIn discusses Ms. Pac-Man in this episode of RTC:
Personally, I think Ms. Pac Man has more of a shot of being an alt than an echo fighter. With being such an easy addition, and a lot of third party characters getting additional costumes like Cloud and Bayonetta, I hope that Sakurai can find a way to sneak her into the game.
NantenJex rates this Mystical Ninja’s chances in Smash.
Verdict: In the end, I look forward to playing as Goemon in Smash Ultimate… as a Mii Fighter because honestly, that is his best shot. It is certainly not impossible and the series certainly ticks a lot of the boxes for third-party representation in Smash but when looking at the bigger picture it is clear that series like Castlevania, Dragon Quest, Puyo Puyo, Rayman, Minecraft and Resident Evil all have a better chance to take the stage, while Goemon does what all Ninja’s do best, lurk in the shadows. Hopefully, we at least get some impactful music from the series.
OBJECTION! Kawlun rates the sharp lawyer, Phoenix Wright:
Verdict: Honestly, I think it would be foolish for Capcom to not allow or to not push for Phoenix in Smash. He would make a lot of sense in Smash and would likely drive up interest for the upcoming Ace Attorney games on Switch. It is just a shame that it is not totally likely.
Finally, NantenJex rates a Kid Icarus fan favorite, Magnus:
Verdict: Magnus may be the greatest warrior of the Kid Icarus world but he’s going to have to deal with standing on the sidelines in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He will most likely return as an assist trophy and likely one that can get knocked off meaning he may also have his own stock icon as well. This is really the best he can hope for, but hey it beats fighting the underworld army again.
