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 Yellow or above) 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.

Votes for Kalos Pokémon League[edit]

  2. Four chambers, one league! That gets my vote! Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 16:35, 16 September 2017 (EDT)
  3. Wii U has better stages overall. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is bad for me 21:10, 16 September 2017 (EDT)
  4. This stage is really breathtaking to look at. The Smash Wii U team did a really great job on how it looks, and the music selection (especially the Route 10 remix) is really great IMO! I sometimes play on the Omega version because of those reasons. I only wish this stage had more PS1 stage elements instead of PS2 "hazards" XD, I would've loved to see this made as a legal stage :) MetaKingSignature1.png#20MK MetaKingMetaKingSignature2.png 03:20, 25 September 2017 (EDT)
  5. This stage is beautiful! Really captured what Pokémon has to offer. The legendary Pokémon are also breathtaking to look at in full HD! Hate the stage hazards though, as with most people. Skittles03, the scummy fox main (talk) 12:53, 17 September 2017 (EDT)

Sakurai created one and rejuvinated the other - which multi-jumping happy-go-lucky status-quo-keeper tops the other?

Votes for Kirby[edit]

  1. Kirby is my Brawl main so...yup. Also I've never seen Pit use a copy ability soooo yeah Kirby is the obvious pick here. Serpent SKSig.png King 11:43, 9 September 2017 (EDT)
  2. He reminds me of Jigglypuff. Alex Parpotta the flying lobster! 11:48, 9 September 2017 (EDT)
  3. Do I even have to explain myself? Smash Master 12:52, 9 September 2017 (EDT)
  4. Kirby is a pink warrior from Pop Star! He even has an animated series called Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. From swallowing enemies to making copy abilities, Kirby is everyone's favorite Star Warrior! Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 13:29, 9 September 2017 (EDT)
  5. Pit's Pit but Kirby could be anyone. He could be Pit. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is a never lover boy 17:22, 9 September 2017 (EDT)
  6. No, do I even have to explain MYSELF. Kirby's Crazy Appetite ~ KirbysCrazyAppetiteSig.png 17:28, 9 September 2017 (EDT)
  7. Kirby has six jumps, a broken as fuck down air meteor, a hammer that kills under 50%, copy abilities, an up air that can juggle the crap out of opponents, and a guaranteed shield-breaker in his down-b that LEAVES HIM INVINCIBLE. Suck on that, Pit. Iron Gladiator (talk) 19:07, 9 September 2017 (EDT)
  8. Done. XD MetaKingSignature1.png#20MK MetaKingMetaKingSignature2.png 14:40, 10 September 2017 (EDT)
