Round 166: Link vs. Samus[edit]

Link SSBB.jpg
Link SSBB.jpg

20 to 11
Samus SSBB.jpg
The two arsenal-toting adventurers of legend are back. While one fights at close range and the other prefers distances, they aren't exactly slouches in the other's department, and they both have the tools to cleave through enemy forces like paper. How will this tiebreaker end?

Votes for Link[edit]

  1. The green elf never loses against his opponents!!! Dots The Engineer NintenNESsprite.png 23:59, 30 November 2012 (EST)

  9. I'm not much of a Zelda fan, but I shall vote Link. I just like his good attack power folks. Scoring KO's as Samus (and Sonic for that matter), let alone win the match, can and will be such a pain. 14:57, 1 December 2012 (EST)
  10. There are more Links than Samuses. Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 15:47, 1 December 2012 (EST)

Votes for Samus[edit]

  1. She has the greatest taunts in the game. Seriously. You jump multiple tiers with it. And you get items. Fugudev 00:00, 1 December 2012 (EST)
  2. Samus' arsenal is more impressive, plus I'm more familiar with her games. Super Smash Bros.-wise, while Link is better at killing, Samus is a little more versatile and more of her attacks are executed faster. Blue Ninjakoopa(Talk) 02:09, 1 December 2012 (EST)
  3. LAZORZ!!!!! BunnyHoodYoshi9001 Talk to me 08:00, 1 December 2012 (EST)
  4. I like Samus much, much better than Link. Of course, if this was Toon Link vs. Samus, that would be another story. Air Conditioner AC.png Helter skelter! 08:26, 1 December 2012 (EST)
  5. Laser beams vs. one of the lamest characters in the whole series? Please. 09:55, 1 December 2012 (EST)
  6. TheAwesomefroggy (talk) 11:39, 1 December 2012 (EST)
  7. Who said this had to be brawl Samus? After all, that's just a picture. While both Link and Samus are viable in Melee (being lenient on the definition of viable), Samus is a much better characters having an infinitely better recovery and zoning abilities. Those missiles are so very annoying. She is really hard to edgeguard; even Marth has to work for those gimps. Link dies after 1 down tilt. But if you kiddies must insist on talking about brawl, Samus still wins. She has a high tier counterpart with items to start the match as well as a long glide toss to complement them. The low tier Samus is still higher than Link on the tier list for many of the same reasons that Melee Samus outplaces Melee Link.--BrianDon't try me!Falco.gif 18:40, 2 December 2012 (EST)

  9. I don't actually care but Link's 2nd half-vote made me choose Samus. 12:31, 5 December 2012 (EST)

  6. This stage is in 2 games. Terrible is Winter 12:06, 8 December 2012 (EST)
  7. Midair stadium is a boring version of Final Destination. Instead of flying through galaxies, we get a poorly rendered crowd. Well, in Pokemon's case it also has a poorly rendered crowded but a dynamic stage. --Havoc48 >:D!!! 12:09, 8 December 2012 (EST)
  8. It changes its layout often. I'm no stranger to the anime; Pokemon gyms have their own themes. 13:19, 8 December 2012 (EST)

  14. In the era of Ken, this stage was considered the most balanced stage in melee. Since then, that title has been given to battlefield, but this stage is still one of my favorite counterpicks when Yoshi's Story or FD is banned. I'm a little uncertain when I counterpick this stage against Space animals, but I think Marth goes even against them on this field. There is enough room in the middle to chain throw them and the platforms are low enough like Yoshi's Story such that I can trap them with up tilts and up airs. --BrianDon't try me!Falco.gif 14:11, 9 December 2012 (EST)


You know, Mid-Air stadium is just FD with a different background. Don't think it has to be legal, though another FD like stage to counterpick is always nice.--BrianDon't try me!Falco.gif 14:13, 9 December 2012 (EST)

Actually, Mid-Air Stadium is Pokemon Stadium 2 with the platforms removed and a different environment (in regards to the sky and the land beyond the stadium). Blue Ninjakoopa(Talk) 21:17, 10 December 2012 (EST)

Round 169: Frozen vs. Buried[edit]


9 to 16
Earthy and icy impediments clash. Is a cage of cryowater or the grip of ground the favoured status?

Votes for Frozen[edit]

  1. I pick Frozen. Offensively, it's not as impressive, as burying your opponents basically earns you a free KO whereas KOing an opponent with a freeze attack is situational at best (especially if Freezie is turned off; Freezie's utility is more limited than the Pitfall's but at least when it makes contact it can KO). Defensively, well, I'd much rather be Frozen than Buried. Plus, I think it's funny when an opponent (or my own character) is KO'd by a freezing attack (the Freezie to be more precise), especially in Melee. blue ninjakoopa 00:52, 29 December 2012 (EST)
  2. Dots The Mew NintenNESsprite.png 00:58, 29 December 2012 (EST)
  3. I like the sound made when an opponent is frozen. 01:44, 29 December 2012 (EST)
  4. It's always epic freezing your opponents. 07:06, 29 December 2012 (EST)
  5. Ice is my thing. 10:51, 29 December 2012 (EST)
  6. Lived in the cold almost all my life, why wouldn't I choose it? Terrible is Winter 12:52, 29 December 2012 (EST)
  7. Don't give this effect the cold shoulder. DarkFox01, ETC. 12:59, 29 December 2012 (EST)
  8. Since I can use both items effectively, I'll vote for the better element. BlueRidiculous (talk) 18:40, 30 December 2012 (EST)
  9. Heck, It's winter so I'll vote for this. ChuckNorris24.png 15:46, 31 December 2012 (EST)

Turn all items off except for the Pitfall, then set items to Very High. 5-minute match, let the fun begin. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 09:59, 29 December 2012 (EST)

  7. This effect is actually really useful in Brawl, while the other barely helps. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 12:24, 29 December 2012 (EST)
  8. Pitting this against Frozen is no contest. The fact is, the Frozen effect has no depth. They should just put the Frozen status six feet under. Air Conditioner AC.png is still alive 15:17, 29 December 2012 (EST)
  9. More useful. Smash Master 16:57, 29 December 2012 (EST)
  10. Buried lasts way longer. Wiiurocks (talk) 20:48, 29 December 2012 (EST)

Do YOU have a Landmaster?

Votes for Fox's Landmaster[edit]

  1. I think cloned Final Smashes are awful, so even though the other two are better overall at killing, the original gets my vote. blue ninjakoopa 23:35, 4 January 2013 (EST)
  2. Fox's introduction in the Subspace Emissary has cemented him as my favorite Star Fox character. Fox FTW! 11:21, 6 January 2013 (EST)
  3. Pity vote; not to mention that Fox is one of my most-used characters in Brawl. RickTommy 03:12, 7 January 2013 (EST)
  4. I'm just picking at random. 11:55, 7 January 2013 (EST)
  5. I honestly don't care but I find it most effective when I fly to the top of the screen with someone on top and automatically star K.O. them, and using this method it doesn't matter which Landmaster you're using so its therefore a matter of favorite over firepower. 12:58, 7 January 2013 (EST)BK

Votes for Falco's Landmaster[edit]

  1. It's the only final smash with a strong chance to eliminate two of your opponent's stocks, and while it's a little weaker than the other two here, it hardly matters when it still kills and has much more capability to lift people past the top.

Smash Master, this is not a place to reference your trivial grudges against other users. I'm not here to provoke you; you have the right your own opinions and emotions, but here is not the place for them.--BrianDon't try me!Falco.gif 02:41, 5 January 2013 (EST)

I would like to point out IP 68 that Fox's flies up much slower and not as high as Falco's and Wolf's, and as such is not really effective at KO via lifting people past the top. Thus it does matter which Landmaster it is if you only go for the KO with them by that method. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 03:38, 9 January 2013 (EST)
