Why do some fighters have moves that they've never had in their own games?

  1. Some examples are Luigi's Green Missle and Donkey Kong's Headbutt.

  1. Not every single solitary move on every single solitary character is going to be taken from a game they were in. It's just not feasible. They have to use some creative license somewhere here and there in the character move sets, both to fill out their move lists, and make sure they fit well within the fighting system. This is especially true back in the old days of Smash 64. Captain Falcon is basically an OC character, after all.

    In recent games like 4 and Ultimate, they've tried to inject as much of the character as they can into each move set, but they can only go so far. Simon Belmont is NES as hell, but eventually they ran out of moves from Castlevania 1 & 4, so they had to give him some stuff that Richter did in later games. still, the effort they put into the characters is appreciated.

  1. look at characters like Isabelle or Piranha plant they don't have that many moves to draw from because they don't do a lot of fighting in their games. They kinda have to take some creative liberty here and there.

  3. In the case of Captain Falcon, he was given derivatives of the generic fighters in "Dragon King," the game that would eventually evolve into Smash 64. Seeing as how Captain Falcon was from a racer (and I'm not sure if he'd ever even had more than his head rendered at any point previous) the developers gave him a moveset pulled from the original "Dragon King" fighters.
