Forums: Index Smash Arena


Ladies and gentlemen, welcome, editors and users, to the Smash Arena! Each week (or possibly less often, if the wiki's status is high or there's not much voter traffic) this forum hosts a tussle between two characters, items, stages or anything else from the Super Smash Bros. series! The winner gets, well, nothing. It's more of a poll but functionally, this is a popularity contest. You may vote for your favorite or who you think would win in a competition between the two combatants that round. No, you don't have to vote for the character with strength & power, or the stage considered more "fair", or the combatant with the most fans - just vote if you are a total fanboy of the participant. So what are you waiting for? Get voting!

The Rules[edit]

  1. When voting, you can give a brief comment on why you voted the way you did, or you can just leave your signature. Long explanations for your vote are discouraged, as they are unnecessary (a vote is worth the same regardless of its reasoning), and they inflate the size of an already large page.
  2. You can vote only once. Any multiple votes will be removed.
  3. Put a # before your vote to facilitate the vote counting.
  4. Type ~~~~ after your vote to sign it, whether you are logged in or not. Using the wrong number of "~"s counts as not signing - your signature must have both your signature itself and the time.
  5. There is a line in each section consisting of "DO NOT ADD COMMENTS OR EDIT ANYTHING BELOW THIS LINE". You are to follow this rule; do not just type your vote at the bottom of the editing window. Not following this rule results in your vote being displayed in the wrong place.
  6. Put your vote below other votes; that is, so the votes are in chronological order.
  7. You may change or remove your vote at any time. To do this you must remove your old vote in its entirety; this is an exception to the "never remove comments" rule.
  8. You may vote only in the current fight; all previous fights are closed.
  9. Do not leave a space between your comment and the ones above it (and/or below it). Extra spacing results in the list numbers becoming disjointed.
  10. While previewing an edit of a single section, you will see loose formatting marks (such as a trailing |}). Do not alter or delete them; they are important to the page's construction and take effect only when the entire round is viewed.
  11. If there are multiple fights in a single round, try to make all your votes in a single edit.
  12. Any comments about the fight should be left in the comments section. The following kinds of comments are not allowed:
    • Comments relating to how close or one-sided a matchup is.
    • Comments about other users' opinions. You can point out that a user may have gotten a fact wrong, but you can't say things such as "That's not a good reason" or "But the other guy is better because X". Users can vote for any reason they want; trying to argue with someone's opinion generally has no positive outcome, in addition to simply inflating the comments section of an already large page.
      • Similarly, avoid writing votes that may invite an argument. Stating your opinion is fine, but don't make it easy for others to see it as goading.

If your vote is not added correctly - specifically, it breaks rules 3, 4, or 5 - you have a short amount of time to fix it (typically between fifteen minutes to an hour). After this time, it may be corrected and moved by any user to the Half-Votes section (adding the unsigned template if necessary), and it will count as half a vote. Other users should not fix such broken votes without also making them half-votes. Your vote will also be considered a half-vote if your edit causes someone else's valid vote to break one of these rules. Attempting to move your vote out of the Half-Votes section may result in it being worth zero (and subsequently deleted) at an operator's discretion.

Multiple votes in a round are not allowed; attempts to circumvent this with sockpuppets will result in all your votes being deleted, and is a blockable offense. Probated users who attempt to circumvent their probation with sockpuppets are also committing a blockable offense and will have their vote discounted. Remember that admins have access to CheckUser to check the IPs of any user, and will use it when sockpuppetry is suspected.

Intentional half-votes undermine the intent of the half-vote system as a way to punish voters for voting incorrectly. It is legal to want a vote to be worth half, but it is very heavily discouraged, and you must state in your vote you want it to be worth half. If you put your vote in the half-votes section without stating reasons why you want it there, it is worth zero and may be deleted by any user. You may replace it later should you do it correctly.

Above all, remember that voting in the Smash Arena is a privilege, not a right. In the vein of what SmashWiki is not, you are expected to at least attempt reasonable contributions to the wiki if you wish to retain your privilege to participate.

Sheik SSB4.png

~ to ~
Greninja SSB4.png
Simple fight - ninja vs ninja, disguised vs. deceitful, blue vs. blue, needle vs. shuriken. Have at 'em.

Votes for Sheik[edit]

  1. Hmm some weird frog thing or a ninja of royalty? Serpent SKSig.png King 00:44, 16 December 2017 (EST)
  2. Yeah Sheik is 10x more fun to play at high level, and way more interesting to watch than Greninja most of the time. --Penro 08:41, 19 December 2017 (EST)
  3. Fun fact: when I was in primary school, I once wore a similar disguise and was known as Sheik for that day. RickTommy 22:27, 11 January 2018 (EST)
  4. Sheik has a grenade, martial arts training, needles, and exploding walnuts. Greninja has a long-ass tongue, a log, and a crappy doll. Who would you choose? Iron Reggie, Master of Memes (talk) 02:04, 28 January 2018 (EST)
  5. I like both of them but I like Sheik more cuz top tier SmileFtw123 (talk) 03:05, 30 January 2018 (EST)
  6. I think I prefer Sheik a little bit more, so I guess I'll place my vote here.-- 13:16, 2 February 2018 (EST)
  7. I prefer Sheik's aesthetic design, and Greninja isn't a very good starter in my opinion. Neither is great to me, but I prefer Sheik. --UnbeatableSith (talk) 21:41, 16 March 2018 (EDT)
  8. 10:57, 5 February 2018 (EST)
  9. She has a chain. Pokebub (talk) 22:43, 16 March 2018 (EDT)
  10. I can't stand fighting against Greninja, and Sheik was one of my mains in Brawl. Also, I feel like she has a higher chance of making it into Smash 5. TheNuttyOne 15:58, 11 April 2018 (EDT)

Half Votes[edit]

  1. Shiek is better —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 23:22, 11 December 2017 (EST)
  2. very good at aerial combos# —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 03:46, 9 January 2018

Votes for Greninja[edit]

  1. I find Sheik's playstyle in SSB4 to be quite aggravating to play as or against. Greninja's not so frustrating. Miles (talk) 01:32, 11 December 2017 (EST)
  2. Us Pokémon gotta stick together I guess. Alex Parpotta the flying lobster! 04:54, 11 December 2017 (EST)
  3. I like Pokémon more, Greninja has appeared in more than just one canon game (discounting remakes), and its playstyle in Smash is far more interesting to watch. 034.png DracoRex, Creator of the Land 07:45, 11 December 2017 (EST)
  4. Greninja is a great Pokémon and he did appear in Sun and Moon as a present. Greninja's playstyle in Smash 4 is... awesome! Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 09:33, 13 December 2017 (EST)
  5. R.I.P Sheik after Melee. The Smash 4 Sheik combo game is nothing like its predecessor. also I love the hydro pump jank lasagna B) (talk) 10:27, 13 December 2017 (EST)
  6. In Smash 5 Greninja's Final Smash should be Ash-Greninja. 19:50, 15 December 2017 (EST)
  7. Better nerf Greninja ChuckNorris24.png  23:10, 15 December 2017 (EST)
  8. iStudying. Nuff said. Aidan, the Festive Rurouni 20:52, 18 December 2017 (EST)
  9. -- 01:46, 24 January 2018 (EST)
  10. Greninja is just the character I think is cooler (although ANY ninja gets cool points). I do hope they change his final smash, however, if he's gonna be in Smash 5 Crazy456Rhino (talk) 12:02, 9 March 2018 (EST)
  11. I love Greninja so much. He's the best of my four mains, and I hope he's in Smash 5! Capnap64 (talk) 09:33, 4 April 2018 (EDT)


Shouldn't this match have been decided, like, several weeks ago? Iron Reggie, Master of Memes 10:31, 26 February 2018 (EST)

Votes for Mii Brawler[edit]

  1. Objectively the best Mii Fighter. Aidan, the Thankful Rurouni 23:53, 11 November 2017 (EST)
  2. The most fun to play of the three moveset-wise, in my opinion. Miles (talk) 14:25, 12 November 2017 (EST)
  3. They all suck, but Mii Brawler sucks a tiny bit less...Alex Parpotta the flying lobster! 14:26, 12 November 2017 (EST)
  4. My body is ready. -Reggie Fils-Aime Iron Gladiator (talk) 16:22, 12 November 2017 (EST)
  5. I'd say these guys are the most fun to play as. -- 17:21, 27 November 2017 (EST)
  6. Mii Brawlers are good at hand to hand combat and its Final Smash is amazing. That's why I love this combatant. Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 12:35, 3 December 2017 (EST)

Votes for Mii Gunner[edit]

  1. fair KoreanPJs (talk) 21:51, 15 November 2017 (EST)


  1. I think mii gunner is the best as he doesn't risk being outplayed to attack he also has a powerful moveset that combos well with each other.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 15:08, 15 November 2017 (EST)


I THINK THAT SWORDFIGHTER IS GUNNA WIN CAUSE HE IS MAI MAIN DOI —Preceding unsigned comment added by The Falco MAINgo (talkcontribs) 16:02, November 16, 2017 (CST)
