  5. Because I made the Koopa Troop article Because they're adorable! Plus, R.O.B. Launchers are annoying. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 08:51, 18 February 2012 (EST)
  6. I've always been a huge fan of the Mario games. MeleeMarth01MM01Sig.pngMinna, miteite edit! 10:52, 18 February 2012 (EST)

  9. Hammer bros., goombas, koopa troopas? What's more to love??? LightningBlue: Need to Balance 11:52, 18 February 2012 (EST)
  10. GO GO KOOPA TROOP!YoshiEggs YoshiEggsSig.gif 15:18, 18 February 2012 (EST)
  11. The R.O.B. squad have virtually no free will and are forced to detonate Subspace Bombs on Ganondorf's command. Even though the Koopa Troop are under Bowser's command, they still have free will so they're not limited to certain actions. 110.174.90.69 20:25, 18 February 2012 (EST)
  12. I can't smash you like badniks, but you're just as much fun to jump on! (That comes from a Sonic the Hedgehog comic. Very fitting right now.)174.20.246.52 20:36, 18 February 2012 (EST)
  13. Generally harder to beat imo. Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 22:36, 18 February 2012 (EST)
  14. ROBs are just so generic, Koopa Troops have nice pallets.69.234.197.219 22:41, 18 February 2012 (EST)
  15. Come on, these guys are classics! Yoshirocks341 YoshiHeadSSBB.png 09:28, 19 February 2012 (EST)

Votes for R.O.B. Squad[edit]

  1. Robots. Your argument is irrelevant. --- ReiDemon, Author Extraordinaire, 00:28, 18 February 2012 (EST)
  2. HAIL BLECK!...Wait, what? 123JamesHeart PatheticStickFigure.jpg 15:30, 18 February 2012 (EST)
  3. Pity vote. I mean really, you gotta feel bad for these guys. They end up dying for evil maniacs and well, they all die in the end anyway. So what about the koopa troop? nothing really. Kopykirby26 (talk) 12:15, 19 February 2012 (EST)
  4. Don't really have a clue how a bunch of turtles can trump these guys. YOU'RE FIRED. Takava (talk) 00:02, 20 February 2012 (EST)
  5. Those troopas get really annoying when you're just trying to speed through a level for one secret door at the end or something, ROBs don't really get in your way. Plus, I feel sorry for how they're being used. Unlike the troopas, who are obviously just stupid or something to keep coming back for more anyway.184.7.175.220 18:20, 20 February 2012 (EST)
  6. I feel bad for these guys. 199.185.67.18 11:03, 21 February 2012 (EST)
  7. Er, what ROB Squad votes #1 and #5 said. Plus, while ROB Squad members can be obstacles at times, they're not nearly as annoying as the nefarious Koopa Troopa nuisances. Although admittedly, the Koopa Troopa are quite fun to jump on, what with their shells whizzing about this way and that and slamming into other foes. And the names of both of these groups are fun/awesome to say aloud. XD 72.3.33.4 15:49, 23 February 2012 (EST)
  8. R.O.B. is the definiton of cool. BlindColours Boing.png 16:12, 23 February 2012 (EST)

Comments[edit]

I don't think the Banana cargo picture is proper for the Koopa troop. ..... The Smiles and Tears 00:16, 18 February 2012 (EST)

I didn't have enough time to create a proper image. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Bold 08:56, 18 February 2012 (EST)
I replaced the Cargo image with a more appropriate one. Mousehunter321 (talk · contributions) 22:00, 23 February 2012 (EST)

I vote for Subspace Army; i see no reason why there are 2 sets of series specific grunts, and not more? (and why are there 2 third party characters and not ZERO LIKE THERE SHOULD BE!?!?!) PokémonUltimatePokUltSigPic.JPGLet's Play! 03:21, 18 February 2012 (EST)

Don't worry. Zero will be in SSB4. If not by inclusion, then by custom creation.Drakon64 Drakon 64.png 08:32, 18 February 2012 (EST)
I don't think Pokémonultimate was referring to the character Zero -__- Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 08:45, 18 February 2012 (EST)

The number 0. I think he means that the third party characters (my guess Sonic from Sega and Snake from Konami) are not for Nintendo LightningBlue: Need to Balance 11:55, 18 February 2012 (EST)

Great choice for a fight; both can be annoying and the latter group sometimes seem overshadowed by other Smash Bros. elements/characters... 72.3.33.4 15:51, 23 February 2012 (EST)

Round 127: Ike vs. Olimar[edit]

Ike SSBB.jpg
Winner!!
Ike

One fights for his friends, the other fights with his friends. Which commander will emerge victorious?

Votes for Ike[edit]

  1. Sothe. Your argument is irrelevant. --- ReiDemon, Author Extraordinaire, 00:08, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  2. Olimar: (watches as Pikmin spirits float away); Ike: "You'll get no sympathy from me. MeleeMarth01MM01Sig.pngMinna, miteite edit! 00:18, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  3. as much as I dislike Ike, the other is really pathetic without an army of pikmin.Drakon64 Drakon 64.png 00:21, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  4. Though Pikmin 2 was one of the best games for the GCN, Ike is a main in Brawl. MegaTron1XD:p 00:47, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  5. Pikmin may be strong as an army, but they're not nearly durable enough to survive a sword slash. 110.174.90.69 09:12, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  6. WE LIKE IKE! YoshiEggs YoshiEggsSig.gif 09:45, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  7. I can control Ike better and me and my friend are always Ike in Brawl. GREAT AETHER!!!!!(Plus in the first cutscene with Olimar, the Pikimin are dancing on a gigantic ROB. Pathetic.)99.235.62.184 11:14, 25 February 2012 (EST)

  14. 199.185.67.18 11:02, 27 February 2012 (EST)
  15. Quick Draw and Counter rock, which added to his power, makes him a lethal fighter. Meta Ike MetaIke.png 20:53, 28 February 2012 (EST)
  16. All taunts, all victory poses (Japanese and English dialogue. 2 of which are excellently meme-worthy), all special attacks, the Great Aether Final Smash (meme-worthy in Japanese), the BFS Ragnell, his grunts/growls while attacking in the Japanese version of SSB Brawl (though English voice is good), and *FULLY-CHARGED FORWARD-SMASH*. A very awesome fighter who also wields TEH FIRE and bravely carries Roy's legacy onward (and hopefully, Ike and Roy will fight alongside each other and Marth in SSB4). Opposing arguments are clearly irrelevant. 72.3.33.16 15:00, 1 March 2012 (EST)

Half votes[edit]

  1. Ike is a much stronger fighter. He does more damage, has more knockback, is much more sturdy and less likely to get knocked off, thereby giving him more survivability and more lethality. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.20.221.160 (talkcontribs) 04:03, 29 February 2012

Votes for Olimar[edit]

  1. Olimar is a better leader in my opinion. Blue Ninjakoopa(Talk) 00:37, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  2. Olimar is my main. Specifically the Blue colouration, Similarimar. And out of each of these guys' merceneries, which are the real troopers? Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 07:19, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  3. Pikmin 2 is my favorite game of all time. And I am no longer in the middle of a playthrough of Path of Radiance, so Olimar's got the vote. --174.59.4.202 10:25, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  4. Olimar has a great leadership with Pikmin and can probably defeat anything. And he is a HIGHER TIER. Ike is my least favorite character in Brawl and he's shows off too much just because he's popular. How good you are is determined by character like Olimar, not by showing off. ..... The Baneling NintenNESsprite.png 10:47, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  5. anyone that can enslave an entire alien race is awesome. Floor2000x (talk) 11:37, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  6. Brawl-wise, Ike wins. Game-wise, Olimar wins. --Fireemblemlogo.pngFan275 12:48, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  7. I play as "the plant guy" more often than I play as Ike, which is still very little. That, and I know more about his games. 123JamesHeart PatheticStickFigure.jpg 20:24, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  8. This is for last time, Ike should not have beat Meta Knight.184.7.173.62 21:03, 25 February 2012 (EST)
  9. Haven't played Fire Emblem. Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 22:33, 25 February 2012 (EST)

Half votes[edit]

  1. I'd vote for Steve, but since I cant I guess I'll vote for his assistant, Olimar —Preceding unsigned comment added by Masklover64 (talkcontribs) 21:23, 29 February 2012‎ (EST)
  2. Well, since I'm slightly better with Olimar... Also, Olimar is Mario backwards :D Accoolx (talk) 19:19, 2 March 2012 (EST)

Comments[edit]

Well somebody has been watching too much Smash Taunts huh?Drakon64 Drakon 64.png 00:23, 25 February 2012 (EST)

The joke originates from Brawl Taunts right? Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 22:34, 25 February 2012 (EST)

I completely agree Smash X! His final smash is EPIC!!! Try it in slow motion and you'll see he kicks twice! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.235.62.184 (talkcontribs) 15:41, 26 February 2012 (EST)

Wait which comment are you refering to? LightningBlue: Need to Balance 13:51, 26 February 2012 (EST)
Smash X 5432's comment. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 14:24, 26 February 2012 (EST)

Heh-heh, Brawl Taunts reference? Nice choice of a poll/fight, although it would have been nice if Pokémon Trainer (Red) was included as well, since his friends fight for him as well (more-so, since Pokémon Trainer never actually receives damage himself during a fight, unlike Olimar who is subject to direct damage and has to physically be in the battlefield "fighting area"). 72.3.33.16 15:00, 1 March 2012 (EST)

Ike has fought Pokémon Trainer in a one-on-one fight before. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 15:05, 1 March 2012 (EST)

Brawl taunts "reference"? The actual words are: "Well, my friends fight...for me." LightningBlue: Need to Balance 19:13, 2 March 2012 (EST)

That is what Olimar said in brawl taunts because he commands and the Pikmin fights for him. ..... The Pikachu NintenNESsprite.png 19:57, 2 March 2012 (EST)

Hmm Brawl Taunts, didn't remember that they had done something like that. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Trumpeteer 23:54, 2 March 2012 (EST)

Round 128: Motion-Sensor Bomb vs. Gooey Bomb[edit]

Motionsensorbomb.jpg
Winner!!
Motion-Sensor Bomb
Motionsensorbomb.jpg

20 to 8.5
GooeyBomb.jpg
They both stick to terrain and explode, but one is stronger and has a three-game history (not including its original existance in the good ol' days of Rareware), while the other is on a timer and will happily stick to people as they scramble around looking for a tag. Which proximity detonation device has the bigger upside?

Votes for Motion-Sensor Bomb[edit]

  1. Hard to see when placed. 204.191.132.187 23:55, 2 March 2012 (EST)
  2. The Gooey Bomb is just weird. 123JamesHeart PatheticStickFigure.jpg 00:13, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  3. The Proximity Mine is better, no questions asked. And it works better, too. RickTommy (talk) 00:49, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  4. Motion Sensor Bomb seems to have far better knockback in my opinion. 110.174.90.69 01:34, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  5. Really? Comparing Kirby's nut with this? These things are badass. With the Gooey Bomb all you do is dodge all around randomly and you're safe, but with Motion Sensor Bombs, you don't even need its explosion to kill people, you can just throw the thing at them. Anthony1996 (talk) 04:55, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  6. Easier to go undetected. Accoolx (talk) 08:24, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  7. Ahh good old Goldeneye 007 days. ..... The Pikachu NintenNESsprite.png 11:31, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  8. The only bomb in Brawl you can't accidentally KABLAMMO by attacking it, and also CPU's don't understand the concept of jumping over the Motion-Sensor Bomb. Also, I don't get why a 14g lump of aliminium can have such knockback when thrown at someone else. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 12:40, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  9. Harder to see, and a trap for CPUs, even at the higher levels. MeleeMarth01MM01Sig.png 15:35, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  10. No competition. This is an epic item and though I only have Brawl it will not disapear as certain items do. (Bumpers, pokeballs, assistist trophies etc.)99.235.62.184 16:03, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  11. Throwing these at a wall is very deadly. Anyways these are difficult to detect if you lost track of them. Also has more power to them. One final thing, the Gooey Bomb can backfire if an opponent sticks in on you. LightningBlue: Need to Balance 17:14, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  12. These are one of my favorite bombs, because there sneaky and deadly. It's also an effective bomb (not as much as Bomb-omb though). --SSBfan1239 (talk) 18:17, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  13. YoshiEggs YoshiEggsSig.gif 18:55, 4 March 2012 (EST)
  14. SUCH a satisfying kill. --174.59.4.202 19:21, 4 March 2012 (EST)
  15. No one will ever see it. Including you. FUN!174.20.246.52 20:29, 4 March 2012 (EST)
  16. You'll never notice it. --Fireemblemlogo.pngFan275 01:26, 5 March 2012 (EST)

Votes for Gooey Bomb[edit]

  1. Makes matches a heck of a lot more chaotic. ;) Takava (talk) 00:30, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  2. I kinda think its more fun to run around trying to re-stick it to someone or avoid that person yourself.184.7.168.34 07:50, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  3. More fun. Plus, it's easy to avoid a Motion-Sensor Bomb, but a Gooey Bomb? NO. Meta Ike MetaIke.png 10:45, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  4. Hot potato...hot potato, hot potato... --- ReiDemon, Author Extraordinaire, 17:02, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  5. I like them both, but Gooey Bomb has a Brawl In The Family comic. Ten, in fact. 68.174.11.24 17:20, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  6. Brawl in the Family FTW :) Besides, it becomes really funny when someone goes into panic mode when they find theres a sticky explosive thing attached to them Kopykirby26 (talk) 19:12, 3 March 2012 (EST)
  7. Way harder to avoid, you have to keep on moving, although, I kill my teammates too often with these...Yoshirocks341 YoshiHeadSSBB.png 09:24, 4 March 2012 (EST)

  1. Gooey bombs make things a lot more hectic than the motion sensor bombs. It's fun sticking my enemy with a gooey bomb and running away frantically. -MILK!—Preceding unsigned comment added by MILK! (talkcontribs) 00:49, 4 March 2012

Comments[edit]

Being the 128th round, you'd think there'd be something special, something Melee-related - since the 64th round was all of the SSB64 characters, I was expecting this one to be all of the Melee characters. Could we perhaps do that next week, even if it is belated? RickTommy (talk) 00:49, 3 March 2012 (EST)

64th was due to it being for the Nintendo 64. Melee is not called Super Smash Bros. 128, is it? The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 05:07, 3 March 2012 (EST)

Even Round 64's 12 combatants was a serious stretch of the format (the page was hard to navigate through and a pain to format). Without a paradigm shift I don't intend to do a round any bigger than that. Toomai Glittershine ??? The SMASH-GINEER 09:30, 3 March 2012 (EST)

Besides, I don't think there is going to be a game named Super Smash Bros. 128 anyways. ..... The Dark Templar NintenNESsprite.png 11:37, 3 March 2012 (EST)
Certainly not all the Melee characters, but perhaps the five who didn't make it back for Brawl? Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 12:36, 3 March 2012 (EST)
You try and format a five-combatant round without skinny columns or asymmetricality. Not worth the hassle in my opinion, at least not as of this time. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Awesome 12:48, 3 March 2012 (EST)

I think RickTommy is refering to the amount of bits in the GCN system (128). I don't know this for sure. LightningBlue: Need to Balance 17:15, 3 March 2012 (EST)

Quite a lot of BitF fans in here, huh? AccoolX AC.png 13:49, 4 March 2012 (EST)

3.5 to 18.5

Two events involving survival on a scrolling stage against a bunch of natives. Will the vertical or horizontal move into the top spot?

Votes for King of the Mountain[edit]

  1. Nothing like chilling in the precipice, the Ace Glacier, that is Icicle Mountain. Some people gave it a frosty reception, others just gave it the cold shoulder, but I think it's cool. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 13:16, 10 March 2012 (EST)
  2. Just because of the vote above me. 67.173.145.76 14:19, 10 March 2012 (EST)

  • 1: you need less time to finish.
  • 2: You get to CHOOSE your character, as opposed to being Bowser (one of my worst...)

  • 5: Vote #1.

  1. Man, this is the weirdest competition yet. I think i'll go for Bowser Bros. since it isn't completely annoying like KotM is. --Fireemblemlogo.pngFan275 12:34, 10 March 2012 (EST)

  15. Wow...I had no memory of either of these Event Matches (and was a bit confused by the titles at first, as I'm unfamiliar with most Event Match names), but Brawl's "Super Bowser Bros." is the only one that I can confirm actually playing through in recent memory. Anyway, this one puts a nice spin on things as it pits Bowser in the "protagonist" role that he's not often seen in. 72.3.33.8 21:18, 12 March 2012 (EDT)
  16. Bowser is one of my best characters to play as, and just because I like this one. --SSBfan1239 (talk) 10:22, 13 March 2012 (EDT)

Toast, that was awful. Solar Dragon (Talk Contribs.) 05:19, 11 March 2012 (EDT)

Exactly. If you don't have a good pun, make them as bad as you possibly can. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 08:27, 11 March 2012 (EDT)
I don't think it works that way, toast. But, it does give great attention. :3 LightningBlue: Need to Balance 16:12, 11 March 2012 (EDT)

Hilarious punny vote for "King of the Mountain", ToastUltimatum. The sheer amusement stemming from it could be said to give one the chills. 72.3.33.8 21:18, 12 March 2012 (EDT)

What's with all the unsigned comments? It seems like an abnormal amount... AccoolX AC.png 19:43, 14 March 2012 (EDT)

Round 130: Lottery vs. Coin Launcher[edit]

Winner!!
Coin Launcher

10 to 17.5

The two trophy-collection methods go head-to-head. Is calm randomness or active shooting the better one?

Votes for Lottery[edit]

  1. "Got it!" I'm a Melee guy, + it's easier to get a trophy w/lottery. Insert coins, please. MeleeMarth01MM01Sig.png 18:34, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
  2. >Sees a large barrage of missiles< Aww, what's the point. >quits< Yeah, coins were harder to get in Melee, but when you did get them, it's nice to sit back and receive the benefits. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 18:49, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
  3. Don't have to play a shooter minigame to get a trophy, you just put in some coins and you get a trophy. 204.191.132.187 20:10, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
  4. The Lottery is way better; you have a much higher chance of getting a trophy that you don't have. The Coin Shooter, on the other hand; you are likely to waste all your coins before you finally see a trophy/sticker that you don't have. RickTommy (talk) 23:35, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
  5. 24.123.73.90 23:50, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
  6. I would have chosen the coin launcher, if not for the fact it doesn't have any new trophy/sticker guarantee, while the lottery does. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 04:08, 17 March 2012 (EDT)
  7. I do like coin laucher but it gets too stressful and anoying, especially with the invincible barriers. As Omega Tryant said, the lottery guarantees a new trophy (for the most part). LightningBlue: Music is Power 13:06, 17 March 2012 (EDT)
  8. Don't feel like playing a minigame for the collectables. 199.185.67.18 11:05, 19 March 2012 (EDT)
  9. I guess I like to vote for the underdog. But in all honesty, I like this one better. 140.182.165.8 11:02, 21 March 2012 (EDT)
  10. Ill vote for this one becuase there is no holes where youre coins are dropped into and are wasted.--Arcwarioman (talk) 15:53, 22 March 2012 (EDT)

Votes for Coin Launcher[edit]

  1. I'm a sucker for shmup games of any type. --- ReiDemon, Author Extraordinaire, 18:57, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
  2. I'm kind of neutral, but I'll vote this one because it's more engaging. 123JamesHeart PatheticStickFigure.jpg 19:20, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
  3. OMG gunna randomly shoot flying ayroplayns! and get cool trofees!99.235.62.184 19:25, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
  4. "coin launchers is fun especially wend you have a lot of coins to spent. but coin slot can only spent 20 coin which is bad if a lot of coins."Smash X 5432 (talk) 20:16, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
  5. You could get both trophies and stickers from this, and it was kind of fun so I vote this. 110.174.90.69 20:51, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
  6. An easier way to get Trophies and stickers. ..... The Hydralisk NintenNESsprite.png 20:53, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
  7. I gotta come up with more original reasons for voting the way I do. The old "I played Brawl, not Melee" standby is starting to get stale. 68.174.13.31 20:59, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
  8. Lottery is boring. 75.163.139.108 23:15, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
  9. Coin Launcher is harder, but lasts longer. It was way too easy to get all the lottery trophies in Melee. --Fireemblemlogo.pngFan275 00:11, 17 March 2012 (EDT)
  10. I've spent much more time on Coin Launcher in 1 day than I did in years on Lottery. Smash Master 00:16, 17 March 2012 (EDT)
  11. Coin Launcher is an actual game. AccoolX AC.png 09:17, 17 March 2012 (EDT)
  12. I'm voting for the fun little minigame. That and I never played Melee. (I do hope to someday, though.)174.20.246.52 09:38, 17 March 2012 (EDT)
  13. ..though pretty random, it has a certain amount of strategy to it.. plus I like being able to choose whether I want stickers or trophies.71.48.127.61 20:42, 17 March 2012 (EDT)
  14. Better way for me to waste my over 9000 coins on. Even if you don't have a 100% chance of getting new trophies and stuff, you still can, and it's a more fun way of doing so.Vincent Transcendant Kirby-1.png 16:34, 19 March 2012 (EDT)
  15. This is more fun than the lottery, especially if I have 9999 coins. Floor2000x (talk) 19:06, 22 March 2012 (EDT)
  16. Much more interactive/engaging than the Lottery, and a good way to use up Coins accumulated from other game modes. It's also a great way to use up time (moreso than the Lottery, which was OK in its own right). The downside is that it can sometimes be difficult to acquire new Trophies and Stickers as collectibles... 72.3.33.16 13:40, 23 March 2012 (EDT)
  17. I don't know how good the slots are, for I don't have melee, but I know that the coin launcher is awesome. MILK! (talk) 17:16, 23 March 2012 (EDT) 3:15PM central america, March 23, 2012

Half votes[edit]

  1. I've never played Melee that much, so I never experienced Lottery, so there would be no choice in choosing. Also, it makes getting collectibles less aggravating.King KirbyD (talk) 20:58, 21 March 2012 (EDT)
