On a non-western end, hasn't Arle Nadja been wanted in Japan since Melee?

1. We do have an example, in fact it’s a very recent one. Sans is the sole representation of Undertale in Smash despite not being playable in that game in any form. It’s a Mii Costume yes, but given that Frisk is nowhere to be seen nor mentioned in Smash, that means Sakurai thought Sans was the better choice.

2. Geno has been requested since Brawl, that and Waluigi and Toad are never happening, so literally nothing is stopping him from getting in. Banjo and K. Rool had no major appearance before their newcomer reveals yet people were happy to see them again in Ultimate, would it even surprise you that Geno, the character Smash fans have been begging for since the third game, would warrant the same reaction? I sure hope not.
.

While I understand what you mean with Sans, he is still not a fighter so it's not a solid proof for now. Yet his amount of appearances is at least equivalent with Isabelle in the whole Undertake storyline.

Again, as already said Nintendndo never tried to bring back Geno in Mario franchise to please the long waiting fans. We all know Geno's popularity but Nintendo is the one to decide whether such characters can be promoted. And that doesn't say Mario, Yoshi and other characters exist not to please their fans.

That said you cannot deny that if Geno was a Mii Costume, they would have shown it off during the Hero Presentation since both are owned by Square. In my opinion, he’s all but confirmed to be a lock.


Uhhh.....yes, that can be denied, since the Chocobo hat didn't return, and only half of Sega's Mii Costumes returned with Joker.

No, the fact that you don't care about Chocobo (you don't even actually care about Geno either, and never did before about a week ago) doesn't change jack s***, and your point about Akira's being left out because he's an Assist Trophy makes no sense (again, Knuckles' costume came back even though he's an Assist Trophy, and the absence of Akira's costume doesn't explain why Jacky's is still missing). And the idea that Square costumes cannot be shown off with non-Square characters was already disproven by us getting Capcom costumes with Banjo.

There are more exceptions to the "Mii Costumes from 4 return with characters from the same company!" fan rule than there are examples.

It does matter since the entire thing with Geno is that “HE’S A SIDE CHARACTER SO HE CAN’T BE IN!” Sans despite not being the main character of Undertale was chosen to represent the series over Frisk. Just cause he doesn’t have his own moveset doesn’t mean he can’t count.

Yes and it’s perfectly okay that Microsoft just sat on the Banjo-Kazooie IP and did jack s*** with him until Sakurai asked for them to be in Smash. Also BK in Smash doesn’t promote anything for Nintendo since Sakurai told us to play the game on Xbox. Again, you don’t need to shill anything to be a DLC character.

Sonic is the more recognizable series so they got their Mii Outfits back, I think Nintendo saw the sales of their Mii Costumes from 4 and are bringing back the ones people used the most.

That said, Chocobo isn’t needed since Cloud is all the representation Square needs, and Akira is already represented as an AT so it makes sense why they didn’t come back. Nintendo decided against getting costumes from it’s competitors so they showed off some random Mii Costumes for Banjo’s Presentation, but it gave us Sans too so it was the best one.

Terry’s Mii Costumes will be SNK-themed with no Geno costume in sight, cause he will be a playable fighter in the near future. Guaranteed.

You're just trying to find ways to explain around this fan rule being dead.

Aren't you normally against fan rules? You're only clinging on to this one because you think it helps the latest bandwagon you've hitched yourself to.

Proto Man and Sans Undertale are my favorite Rare characters.

Then they wouldn't have added it in the first place.

Or Geno, since he's Square representation, too.

Again? Really? After I've eviscerated that excuse three f***ing times now?

Okay, for the fourth time....

Sans is more important to UT than Geno is to SMRPG, Sans also appeared in Deltarune.

The roster already has a bunch of weird/obscure characters so might as well add him at this point.

Geno is not iconic enough to get in the game so I do not support him making it in. That would be a heartbreaker. I want sora who is iconic or any other square icon like terra from final fantacy or chrono
