Because even among echoes that's stretching it a little too far.

If Greninja stood up straight, then not really.

His shurikens are slower than his arrows would be and would have different hit boxes.
Side and down special don't make sense because he is an archer, not a ninja

You have a point with the arrows.

Side and down special works completely fine. Its not the fact that Decidueye isn't a ninja, its that they learn Shadow Sneak and Substitute in the games, so its plausible that they are able to use the moves.

Pikachu uses thunderjolt, a move that isn't even in the games. The moves the Pokemon use are chosen based on who the Pokemon is and not what moves they learn in the game

I was just proposing Decidueye being an echo fighter. If they were to be their own character, then they would obviously have unique moves, but in this scenario that I am trying to make Decidueye an echo, Shadow Sneak and Substitute are completely plausible additions to the moveset.

If Greninja stood up straight (by default, not for specific moves and poses) then he would not be Greninja. If Decidueye was hunched over in a three-point stand... well, he couldn't, as he's just not built like that. There really is no way that Greninja's moveset and animations would work on Decidueye, and no reason to change Greninja's existing moveset and animations to make him more Decidueye-like.

Because people wanted Incineroar to be desperately in the game for a long time now.

It's not just the height. Toon Link and Mario have basically the same height and a similar build overall,but even then they have different proportions. Swordless Toon Link would not really work as an Echo Fighter of Mario. All of the Echo Fighters in smash ultimate have virtually identical models to the base character, but Decidueye just has too many differences from Greninja.

What I was saying was entirely hypothetical. If Greninja stood up straight like he did in the anime, the concept would be more plausible, but he won't because its against the ninja stereotype that Greninja is going for. I'm also not saying Greninja should stand up or Decidueye bend down, just that their moveset could potentially share many similarities if they were of similar properties.

That is one of the weirdest echo suggestion I have ever seen.

IDK why I'm the only one who can see this happening. If Decidueye was a character, they'd use Greninja's body as a base anyway no doubt.
