Do you feel that there is merit in letting Waluigi into the Smash roster?

On one hand, he's prime spinoff fodder, having not appeared in a Mario or Wario platformer or adventure game as of yet (I don't count the Mystery Mushroom outfit in Super Mario Maker, since that's not really a traditional Mario platformer). Even the description of his outfit in Super Mario Odyssey poked fun at his not getting into any bigger games.

On the other hand, he's still rather popular, and raise your hand if you've always wanted to pit the Mario Bros. against the Wario Bros.(?).

Kind of I mean you basically listed the main reasons. Him not having a bigger role in any of the games is like the only thing holding him back; and we know he's got fair fan-demand with Sakurai's post and the outcry that came when he got cut from Mario Kart 7.

Definitely want to have a Mario Bros. vs Wario Bros. battle though.

Looking at all of the crazy things he does in various games:

- Spinning so fast you become a tornado
- Vine walls
- Whips
- Eggplant bombs
- Driving construction equipment in kart races
- Dance moves
- Crotch Chops
- Swimming through the air
- Stomping his enemies into the ground and smacking them with a tennis racquet

He could be a crazy nonsense character. Those kinds of characters always spice up fighting games.

As soon as Waluigi gets a big starring role (if ever) then there really isn't any reason to not let him in Smash... that's honestly the only thing holding him back (albeit a huge negative). He's got the fan-demand and moveset potential to give him a spot on the roster.

Hopefully before the next Smash, Nintendo finally does something big with him. Hoping for that Wario Bros game!

It used to be no way, but smash 4 happened. They added palutena, corin, Wii fitness, Shulk, Robin..

They're at the bottom of the barrel for Nintendo characters at this point, with a 60 person roster. I think Waluigi is fair game now

There is nothing wrong with Palutena, Shulk, and Robin being in the roster. Especially not Shulk.

I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it. I'm just saying those 3 characters are relatively obscure

Up until smash 4, with some exceptions, smash had been a pretty elite who's who of characters. Naturally, as the roster approaches 60 characters, you will hit the bottom of the barrel. Smash 4 had more less known new comers than any iteration

Waluigi being in melee and brawl, for the most part probably would have been a little odd. At this point, who is left?

You have two top requests from the last decade that they refuse to add in k rool and ridley. You have obligatory new IP characters with splatonlings and ARMers. Random gen 9 Pokemon. And then you're left with the misc requests that have been around forever, Waluigi Daisy toad etc

I spent 2005-2014 saying how bad of a choice Waluigi would be. At this point, objectively, he is not. He would fit in fine. Smash is no longer about Nintendo all stars, it's Nintendo characters new and old + icons from outside Nintendo + bayoneta
