But how? Like, he doesn't say anything and you never see him and he's just got a hand in the middle of his chest. There's no way he deserves a spot, I just...I just can't do this.

I mean, I respect that people like him but I just don't understand.

So I want all of you to promise me that whenever you use byleth's final smash, you'll shout something a teacher would say. "THE BELL DOESN'T DISMISS YOU, I DISMISS YOU!!", "SHUT THE F*** UP, CASPAR!!" You know, professor things.
"IT'S NOT BURGER KING MATH; YOU CAN'T HAVE IT YOUR WAY!"

^^^ Is the next pass confirmed to be the last batch? If not then hopefully we've got even more chances.
The next pass will reach til the end of 2021. It will definitely be the last batch. Sakurai needs some freaking sleep.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

The whole culture around who is "expected" to get in is making the reveals not that fun. Banjo and Kazooie would have been exciting if it weren't for half the American internet throwing a **** bitch fit over every single other reveal that wasn't Banjo and Kazooie. Remember how Hero and Banjo got announced IN THE SAME DIRECT but Hero got announced first and thousands of babies on twitter started screaming about "waahh another sword boy WHERES BANJO"? i remember.

Joker would've also been more hype if it didn't just feel like a sales pitch for P5R lol but that's kind of how it goes now. Anyway I'm also just lukewarm on this game since its 1p sucks but the culture around DLC fighters doesn't help. It's pretty likely Lloyd is in down the road (from comments by his eng VA as well as new registered trademarks and icons) but I almost don't want him to be because everyone will just argue over whether or not he "deserves it" lol

edit: not salty take for a change -- the mii outfits have honestly been so lit though like. bless

i find Byleth to be disappointing but not surprising, but also i'm kinda glad they confirmed that more Nintendo reps are possible. i'm hoping they considered Rex to be a fighter in the new pass despite him already being a Mii outfit

I'd prefer Mòrag myself. Stance fighter alternating between Brigid, Aegeon, and Finch. All three tank weapon types that're tied to Mòrag (except Finch, but Finch raises agility so she's generally given to Mòrag). Brigid's sort of the allround type that is quick, Aegeon is for hit-and-runs and methodical strikes but also can block attacks, and Finch is the defensive and strong but slow weapon, and can send gusts of wind like a golf ball.

And for her final smash, Mòrag points out and says "Get 'em, boys!"
...and a bunch of Mor Ardainian soldiers flood the stage and cherry tap everyone, shouting "THINK YOU CAN TAKE ME?" "THINK YOU CAN TAKE ME?" "DON'T FERGET ME!" "You're done!" "You're done!" "THINK YOU CAN TAKE ME?" over each other. The auditory flood also helps disrupt players sense so it's hard to tell where all the other attacks are coming from. :P

There is one thing I will complain about.

...no God Shattering Star or Funeral of Flowers? Really? >:( Those're all great map themes!

Oh well at least you included Between Heaven and earth and Apex of the World.

Nope. We got hte main theme, Fódlan winds, Blue skies and a battle, tearing through Heaven, Chasing Daybreak, Paths that will never cross, Apex of the World, Between Heaven and Earth, and Edge of Dawn.

OKay, Tearing through heaven MAYBe isn't a bad choice... but where's the opera theme or the

CYRIL. KILL
theme?

I hope every new character is a sword-wielder from Fire Emblem. Petra, Lyn, Lon-qu, Felix, and let's say Anna for good measure. Tharja is one of my favorite characters, but since she doesn't wield a sword, I guess she's out.

I mean, as much as I would love to see Shantae, Dixie Kong, Madeline, Sparkster, Li Xiangfei, Lana, Felicia, Mike Jones, Kunio, Misako & Kyoko, the Battletoads, Crono, horrible goose, or Chun-Li in Smash, I would also love to watch the fans meltdown while Sakurai cackles with a mischievous smile on his face, swirling wine around in a crystal goblet.

He could also just add Bubsy.

And every time you hit him, he spouts out another annoying catch phrase.

Not even joking, I'd prefer Bubsy over Fire Emblem, without a hint of irony. He can have Titus the Fox echo just so people scratch their heads.

What I would love to see happen:

Sakurai walks up, "I will actually present all of the characters for the next Smash Bros DLC at once!"

Wonder Blue, Dante, Sora, Rillaboom, Waluigi, and 2B appear on the screen behind him.

"And I have decided to listen to the fandom... You requested no more pale-faced anime martial users or swordsmen. So..."

He gives a clap-clap and then Sora, Dante, and 2B vanish from the screen.

"You also requested concerns about one franchise being too overrepresented. There are currently a lot of Mario and Pokémon characters, so..."

Clap clap. Rillaboom and Waluigi disappear.

"And you requested more non-Nintendo characters. So."

Clap clap. Wonder Blue vanishes.

"Getting permission from third-parties isn't easy as everyone seems to think it is. Some companies weren't interested, others wanted a share of profits or something. But there was one company who was more than willing to talk with us. So without further ado, please welcome our new six fighters from..."

Crash Bandicoot, Tracer, Hanzo, Wolf, Symmetra, and Spyro appear.

"...Activision Blizzard."

I think Spyro and Crash are way better than Wonder Blue and Rillaboom. Those other things are definitely worse though, probably, whatever they are.
