Are you kidding? He's way too big..... He's like the size of the house.. He would never work in Smash Bros, the size difference is far too retarded.

plays as Olimar

I know you are joking, but even as an actual "argument" that one doesn't hold water.

Well, they still could make Ridley Bowser-sized...

Here is the deal kiddo (talking to your flair) Nobody is saying Ridley is to big just because he would be the size of Final destination if left unaltered, cause frankly then a lot of sizes don't match up.

But we aren't talking about ACTUAL size, we are talking about RELATIVE size, with a side helping of PROPORTIONAL size.

Actual size is pretty much out the window cause of Olimar, Kirby, Dedede, and a lot of the stages compared to characters.

Relative size is the one Smash seems to follow by STRONGLY.
This means that everything is the correct size compared to other things it can be compared to in it's franchise of origin.
(This mostly refers to characters compared to each other)

Link(TP)-Zelda-Ganondorf are all the same height difference they were in twilight princess.
Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi AND YES even bowser (his standard size (non-powered up)) are all based on their proportional size in their actual games with very minimal changes.
Olimar is the right size compared to his pikmin etc....

Ridley however, could never get this.
His ONLY appearance where he was less then twice Samus he size was the Original Metroid (which has been remade using his ACTUAL design)
In any other Metroid game, Ridley is atleast TWICE samus, and in the more recent ones he is even larger, even being able to hold samus like a dolly and try to eat her whole.
(Even in Brawl he appeared on this scale)

Now samus ALREADY IS amongst the fifth largest characters in the game...
So they clearly can't make their proportional size even NEAR what they are known for.
It also doesn't help that Ridley is PORTRAYED to be gigantic (in all his (more recent)appearances they make a point of showing just how gigantic he is (pinning samus down, flying overheard while casting a giant shadow, grabbing you like a dolly, eating you etc...))

His only chance is if Sakurai (who has already said once before he never even considered him "an option")Decides to gives him the Pit treatment (full rework of design) or decides to suddenly out of nowhere go : meh, fuck proportional sizes between fighters.

.

.

Then there is Proportional size for his older design (the one usually requested)
This one adds to the "need for a new design" (unless they go for the Other M design, which is awesome BTW and his only decent chance if you ask me)
His older design is pretty much rayman fused with a purple charizard and with stickfigure arms and neck.

Simply said: he is SKINNY, like REALLY FUCKING SKINNY. AS IN : LOOK AT THAT FLIMSY NECK
It would look really bad when zoomed out.

.

Everything added together I would say Ridley has a bad chance simply because of all the /time needed to make him work, Time that could be spend on other characters... Like Tingle.

.

But the real point of this comment was of course to say : STOP COMPARING OLIMAR HIS SIZE DIFFERENCE TO THE RIDLEY DEBACLE!!! IT IS NOT THE SAME THING !!! Heavy Breathing

(in case you didn't notice, I am sick of people comparing the bowser (you) or olimar/kirby(pichu flair, up thair) etc... sizes to the ridley debacle, which is a completely different thing.)

Uhm not really... Tingle is the only character in the zelda franchise to have it's own game, in that game he fights against quite a few giant monsters that would even give Link some trouble.
And in the end he defeats a GOD, and not just anyway... he does so WITH THE THING THE GOD HAS POWER OVER!

He can also make his own bomb, travel around with his balloon and has alchemy and magic under his belt (and a funny slingshot).
And he beat a Giant Pirate Stalfos

Also he had sex... yeah, He has CONFIRMED sex... not sure what that has to do with getting in smash bros.... but hey, FACTS.

.

The Tingle comment was said off-side as a joke though, but that doesn't change I believe he has a lot more "reason" to be playable then a LOT of characters people are asking. (Skull kid, Ashley, Waluigi,etc...)

I find it funny that People hate it when I give ACTUAL reasons why Ridley is a low-chance case and why he might not make it, but then when you tell them about someone you want you are a "troll" for wanting something different from the average group. Very classy.
People like you make me WANT Ridley isn't in, just to spite you.

There are arguments for both sides now calm the hell down; you can argue against him all you want, but you don't know who Sakurai picked to be on the final roster.

I am saying his situation is different from bowser or olimar.

k.

It never was a size issue, yeah. It is somewhat of a proportion issue, but there is no doubt in my mind Sakurai and his team can make it work.

Yes but I don't want him "not in" because of the character, I want so because of how utterly stupid and aggravating people are that keep rooting for him without checking what they are saying.

.

And like I said, if Sakurai really wants, yeah sure.
But he already showed dis-interest once, and Ridley would require a lot more time and work to be put in then any other character so far.

So all I am saying : It's better to expect him to not be in, and then be surprised he is in, then to go around proclaiming he will in for sure this time, and then start cutting yourself again when "sakurai lied to you"

Ok then, name me some others.
Most will be either false information/arguments that don't fit.

Or my older posts about why SM4SH discussion was "Banished" to a separate thread for no apparent reason while posts like "OMG DAT SPIK" were roaming free.
But that issue has already been resolved.

Or maybe you are talking about my posts about "maining wii fit trainer"?
