Why the fuck did people want him back? He was cut for being a Pichu-tier clone and had no reason to come back.

Meleefaggotry and nostalgia, just like Doc, Falco and Fast Link.

best gba fe character. hands down.

Luke Butler

Because people love FE6.

Don’t give me that Japan only crap. The game has a great fan translation and emulated on just about anything.

Brandon Miller
Brandon Miller

Fujoshis in Japan. His VA is super popular over there.

Blake Harris
Blake Harris

Because people liked him in Smash. That alone is a reason to bring anyone back.

Look at Ice Climbers. Nobody gave a shit before Melee, and now they're one of the most demanded returning characters.

Tyler Young

Him coming back over Wolf still baffles me

Elijah Sanchez

Ice climbers were cheap as hell though. So much so that they were banned from tourneys.

Kayden Thompson

Most requested cut character from Melee

Lucas was the most requested from Brawl

Its not that hard to understand

Samuel Bennett
Samuel Bennett

I always liked Ice Climbers and they're way more unique than Roy's clone ass. The only thing they needed to do was remove chain grabbing (which Smash 4 did).

Easton Ramirez

Most requested cut character from Melee
That'd be Mewtwo, whom we already had.

Owen Fisher
Owen Fisher

Why the fuck would anyone want Lucas over Wolf?

Jaxson Clark
Jaxson Clark

The bitching over Mewtwo and Roy being cut was legendary.

Leo Sullivan
Leo Sullivan

The way I see it, all the DLC characters after Mewtwo were there to fufil some sort of criteria.

Sakurai made a note of how Lucas returned from Brawl, while Roy returned from Melee. With in that mind, I suppose he wanted to have one returning character from each previous Smash game, and Lucas took priority over Wolf as the returning Brawl rep.

Asher Thomas
Asher Thomas

nobody actually likes Roy unironically haha

Josiah Sanders
Josiah Sanders

Bullshit. Why did Mewtwo AND Dr. Mario come back then?

Isaac Hill
Isaac Hill

Irrelevant since Mewtwo was the bonus character for buying both versions

Because we already have a Fox clone

Aiden Ortiz

Because Meleefags will never be happy until Smash is just Melee with no other changes but graphical updates.

Ethan Harris

ROYS OUR BOY XDD dont you remembr? :3 lols

Cooper Russell

Yeah totally got #2 in the character poll ironically XD

Be real, they'd screech over graphical updates too

Jack Kelly

implying meleefags care about Smash 4

Connor Jenkins
Connor Jenkins

They changed Roy enough to justify it.
He's only a semi-clone, and plays very differently from Marth.
I actually find him to be a really fun character to play.
People who don't like Roy obviously don't use him enough.

Levi Brooks
Levi Brooks

Dr. Mario was on the base roster.

I like Sourcegaming's theory on the whole thing:

sourcegaming.info/2015/12/21/the-corrin-controversy/

Corrin is an example of Sakurai “boxing himself when it comes to character choices,” and it’s the same exact reason why Wolf was not a shoo-in, as Lucas was very clearly chosen as “the cut Brawl veteran.” This is purely based on how Sakurai has introduced every fighter, and may not be the way Sakurai has chosen these characters. Since DLC was limited, it makes sense to try to optimize it by selecting the overall fan favorite, the best cut Brawl fighter, the best cut Melee fighter, the best third-party rep, the best Final Fantasy rep, the best upcoming game rep—and lastly, the most realizable character from the Smash Ballot.

As said previously, while both Roy and Lucas' trophies mention how they returned from their respective Smash games, Mewtwo doesn't mention anything about him being in Melee. So to me he it seems like he didn't get into Smash 4 as a Melee rep like Roy did, despite being from that game.

Kayden Brooks
Kayden Brooks

meleefags don't actually care about roy

Alexander Smith
Alexander Smith

Roy doesn't fit in the Meleefag meta though.

Parker Barnes

They played as him in Melee, or want to fuck him.
Nobody who actually played his game liked his character.

Isaac Gonzalez

This. I love Smash 4 Roy, but always hated Melee Roy.

Cooper Ward

His game was the most forgettable Fire Emblem.
Kind of unfortunate.

Christian Flores

I hate that they changed his look so much, he was cute in melee

He's going to be still in the Switch Smash when the Elibe games get remade and there's nothing you faggots can do about it.

Matthew Howard
Matthew Howard

Royfags get often mocked by Meleefags tho
hence why they all moved to PM then Smash 4

Colton Taylor
Colton Taylor

I think the migration has more to do with every character being Z tier unviable except Fox Marth and Falco in Melee

Matthew Mitchell
Matthew Mitchell

He'll still be in Smash Switch because its going to be a deluxe port

Cameron Sanchez

He was my favorite character from melee until I realized how much better and more balanced marth is.

Kevin Perez
Kevin Perez

isn't a Samus and Jigglypuff main killing spacies tho?

Grayson Nguyen
Grayson Nguyen

everything is the fault of Meleefags
they're just a vocal minority of 3,000 people who refuse to move on from a game no significant amount of people actually like
but they coordinated with Kremlin hackers to use VPNs and sockpuppets to create the illusion of overwhelming support that coerced a company with several billion dollars into greenlighting Roy as DLC
I'm a perfectly rational adult and this all definitely makes sense
it's definitely not because Sakurai is a fanboy faggot who stuffed the game with five other Fire Emblem characters of his own accord and ignored the ballot results in favor of cherrypicking what he felt was "realizable"

Zachary Russell
Zachary Russell

thanks for reminding K.Roolfags where the Russians of the fighter ballot

Landon Allen

Its funny because that image applies as much to fucking rosterfaggots like yourself bitching about Sakurai and Fire Emblem as it does to meleefags.

John Hernandez

If Roy/Lucina are ever removed I hope their movesets get slapped onto another character.

Jack Ward

never forget the autism that came out of them ballot

I wish I could but those autists still post here on the regular

Tyler Lopez

Just like Ganondorf and Black Shadow, right?

Justin Watson

There are people who still think Sm4sh Roy is a clone
He has similar specials, but he plays differently enough to be a quarter-clone at worst

Blake Cruz
Blake Cruz

tfw you've stopped caring about the roster and just want a good game that maybe includes snake

Tyler Barnes
Tyler Barnes

I know, right?

Isaac Parker
Isaac Parker

Presumably because they liked his game or the way he played.
He was cut for being a Pichu-tier clone
No.

Incorrect.

Don't you ever get tired of being wrong time and time again?

the one that introduced the proper magic triangle and support system
forgettable

This.
I'd gladly give up any character if we just got good gameplay.

Charles Taylor

the best upcoming game rep
Still salty that Corrin apparently fit this category better than anyone else. Corrin makes Roy look fantastic.

Ethan Torres

Because people love FE6
I'll call bullshit. Notice how the only popular FE6 character is Roy and literally nobody else?

Thany won the voting gauntlet, which is totally indicative of popularity.
Also I would say Lilina, CLarine, Klein and Fir have got half-decent mileage out of Heroes.
Plus there's tht one guy who really likes Narshen

Dylan Moore
Dylan Moore

i rather replace Ganondorf with or add Ganon

David Martin
David Martin

People that nobody gives a shit about? I have not seen anyone give a single rats ass about any of those characters except for Shanna.

Voting gauntlet is not indicative of popularity, otherwise Camilla is more popular than Lyn and neither is how good a unit is in heroes. Especially fucking Fir of all people.

Jeremiah Davis

People that (you) don't give a shit about. Don't push your shit taste onto other people.

James Gray

Again, I haven't seen anyone care about those characters in any thread unless the conversation is explicitly about FE6, which never happens except once in a blue moon.
Closest I've seen to any FE6 character being cared about outside of Roy and heroes shit was Cecilia because of cake.

Thomas Stewart
Thomas Stewart

Cecilia
Perhaps you shouldn't hang out exclusively in threads that our resident Ceciliafag infests.

Jace Bailey
Jace Bailey

Voting gauntlet is a game and has stopped being a clear indicative of popularity since multipliers.

Easton Bailey
Easton Bailey

Bruh, I've been in FE threads since before awakening. Cecilia is the ONLY ONE not named Roy who ever got mentioned and who still ever gets mentioned. Sorry I don't go to non-existant threads where everyone fawns over FE6 characters and how it's the best FE in the franchise.

Carson Hill
Carson Hill

No shit. Next you're going to tell me CYL isn't a good gauge of popularity.

You know what is? Talking to people and asking who their favorites are.

You're full of shit. You probably hang out in waifu threads exclusively, considering how often I see Shanna brought up as a person's favorite pegasus knight.

Ryan Lewis
Ryan Lewis

Smashfags being autista and Nintendo wanting to advertise Waifu Emblem as hard as humanly possible.

Angel Ramirez

Talking to people and asking who their favorites are.
Which yields in FE6 characters about 0 percent of the time.

Jack Allen

People cared about Rutger and Fir enough to make this pic.

Not when people can exploit the polls and vote multiple times, no.

Stop hanging out in waifufag threads. Try frequenting threads that people who play the games visit. Diet Nigger's FE3 playthrough threads, for instance.

Yes, I know.

How about fucking no.

Jaxon Fisher
Jaxon Fisher

Bullshit you don't. There's one person on Cred Forums who's obsessed with Cecilia and he sticks to those threads.

David Hughes
David Hughes

Because why shouldn't he come back? They should have brought every character back. I want every character to always come back in Smash even if I don't like them. He's DLC so no one made you buy him.

Grayson Lee

Roy
Character
The dude's more bland than white bread. He has no personality beyond the most generic a protagonist can get.

James Gonzalez
James Gonzalez

Wrong. Try playing his game, homeboy.

Dylan Brooks
Dylan Brooks

It's funny because if you are going that way you are even more wrong.

Leo Wood
Leo Wood

Describe to me Roy's personality and how he is anything other than generic.

Carter King
Carter King

He has less personality in his own game than in smash you know.

Michael Gonzalez
Michael Gonzalez

Has an inferiority complex - knows he isn't the best soldier and can't compare to his father but feels that unless he fights too, he'll become detached from his men. Moreover, he's the type who values every one of his soldiers and won't permit any plan that puts any of them at risk for his sake. Makes up for his lack of physical ability with his wit and knowledge of decorum - he's able to come up with plans to expose traps and sniff out a foreign prince based on the way he behaves, the only FE lord to do so. At the start, his primary concern is the safety of Lycia, even doing political maneuvering in his father's place to ensure his peoples' safety even if it makes Lycia endebted to Etruria. As time goes on, he starts to fight for the sake of all of Elibe, and for the coexistence of humans and dragons, and in the very end, after a series of events resembling the Scouring of old, he echoes and surpasses Hartmut, the hero of old. It's the classic hero's journey carried out perfectly, but of course, Cred Forums can't like a character unless they can solo their game and they're a violent psychopath.

Jordan Nelson
Jordan Nelson

And Lyn will come with him if they go that far, which they will, they have a MU to tinker with, they'll cash in on this opportunity. Soon all the people who doubted lyn's popularity will have nothing else to say, heroes is step 1, warriors was step 2, soon.

Charles Phillips
Charles Phillips

proper magic triangle
You act like the MT was ever good.

Gavin Powell
Gavin Powell

step 3 will be a cameo in FE16
step 4 is a Blazing Blade remake

Elijah Gray
Elijah Gray

The only unique thing I picked up in there is the decorum.
Every FE lord is the type who values every one of his soldiers and won't do something that puts them in harms way. Ever FE MC fights for all the land after the scope of the game broadens, Alm is the perfect example of this who goes from first Zofia to all of Valentia. That's how these games progress, you start out small fighting wars on the boarders before some shit happens and all the continent is at stake.

Lucas Scott
Lucas Scott

implying the GBA games need to be remade
If anything needs a remake, it's 4/5. GBA games are perfectly playable.

Leo Baker
Leo Baker

I was asked to describe Roy, not just what makes him unique. What makes him unique is just that, he's just a schoolboy. Not a skilled warrior, preferring just to study. He still has to take up arms and uses his skills to his advantage. Take when Cath first shows up and tells them that the lord is dead and they're walking into a trap. Merlinus says to just ignore what a thief says, Roy thinks up a way to test it on the spot.

Ryder Morales
Ryder Morales

Corrin didn´t deserve it, same with Elmo

Nolan Torres
Nolan Torres

Too bad the director didn't say anything about four and five, it is sealed. It shall be elibe, he wanted 2 he got 2, he wants 6 he'll get it and more. The clamoring for 4 and 5 from this autistic cup stacking board will not change anything now, it is destined and the 10+ years of waiting shall finally be answered.

Daniel Powell
Daniel Powell

All FE's need remakes because all have tons of problems.

Wyatt Brooks
Wyatt Brooks

Simmer down user. FE6 is in dire need of a remake, but I expect Jugdral won't be far behind. FE4 is enormous in Japan.

Landon Jenkins
Landon Jenkins

The build'up from his school days to leadership is nonexistent. All he does the whole game is asking Merlinus to not be a dick and listening to other more interesting characters like Guinevere.

Alexander Hall

Tyler King
Tyler King

Meleefags only care about Fox/Falco and Marth.

Cameron Ramirez
Cameron Ramirez

I disagree. I feel the situation in the Western Isles encapsulates his arc. He goes in eager to help Etruria, which will help Lycia, but later decides that doing the right thing is more important, even if there are repercussions from Etruria.

You realize that this was a gag, right?

Noah Harris
Noah Harris

That's what you'd hope for, but it came straight from his mouth, you cannot dance around this now

It wasn't just a gag, it really does help you make a good character.

So he could be shit-tier in Bayonetta's game.

Jose Myers

because he's cooler than marth
and /ourboy/
also his waifu is cute

Luis Nelson

His move set is about 80% unique to Marth in 4. Also I mained Roy in melee.

Yes, it was a joke. I wasn't trying to pass the Plinkett test, so I don't really care if my description did. I apologize.
