Forums: Index Brawl Talk The perfect character

I just got this idea. What if the people here could vote on what the perfect Smash Bros. character would be like. For clarification, here's how it would work:

1. I would select a certain move (F-Air, for example).

2. I would create a poll and give everyone a few choices on who has the best one (in the example, I may put Marth, Meta Knight, Captain Falcon, etc.)

3. Whichever character's attack gets 15 votes first or leads for a week will (unofficially) have the strongest attack in that category!

4. Profit! We would then have a general consensus of what the perfect character would be like.

Please give me your opinions! Cheezperson {talk}stuff 18:57, 12 October 2008 (UTC)


This is a pretty good idea, but what if the character's (example) F-Air wasn't in the poll? For instance, I might like Ness's F-Air, but if it's not in the poll, there might be some serious disagreements between people. I might be completely wrong about this, but just wanna throw that out there...Fried beef1 (talk) 19:21, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

It's Johnny Xtreme, end of story. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 19:26, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Lol, Johnny. Maybe we could vote any character? Might get too big though.

Too answer Fried Beef (note: nice username : ) I would allow people, if they disagree with my choices for the attack (usually 5-7), and they give me some good reasons why their character should be on the list, to get me to edit the list of available character's attacks. Johnny Xtreme? No way. Cheezperson {talk}stuff`

Cheez, I like what you're thinking. And by the way, Captain Falcon's knee is the best F-air. End of story. {My name is Miles, and I approve this message.} 20:06, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Yay or Nay[edit]

It sounds like people are liking the idea, so I will make it official! Cheezperson {talk}stuff 20:13, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Idea on how to run it[edit]

I think this could be done by type of move, like "best strong meteor smash" (Not the crap ones like Fox's d-air, the strong ones like Zelda's d-air, Ganon's d-air, Marth's d-air); "best f-air killer" (Peach's, Zelda's, C.Falcon's); "best item reflector" (Pit's Mirror, Fox/Wolf's reflector, Zelda's nayru's love); "best counter" (Marth/Ike/Peach/Lucario), and so on. Then we could merge the results (somehow, I still haven't gotten that far :P ), and there we go. It's a lot easier than listing every character's moves and doing a vote to see which is best >.> --Shadowcrest 21:39, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

I think a better way would be to pick maybe three or four per category, like Cheezperson said at the top. Example: F-air: Marth, Captain Falcon or Donkey Kong? etc. {My name is Miles, and I approve this message.} 21:52, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm gonna run it like I said at the top of the page. About 5 or so selections per round. Cheezperson {talk}stuff 21:56, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Where? Here? Your userpage? Your talk? {My name is Miles, and I approve this message.} 22:03, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

This is a great idea! You should just keep it here on the forums. Maybe even the main page? Drizztfan13 (talk) 23:00, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Uh, thanks. I dunno. The forums would be best, but it would be good publicity if it were on the main page. Cheezperson {talk}stuff 23:56, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Why not just include all characters in the poll. Solar flute (talk)

The poll box would be too big. Besides, no one is gonna vote for mario on best D-special. Cheezperson {talk}stuff 01:50, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
I totally wud D= And I'd vote Squirtle for best neutral-special too! Characters without two copies of an attack are lame.–Entrea Sumatae 02:51, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

What if we do it like this: Everybody can post "the character with a best specific move" in the following list but they must post a small comment why it is the best move too. For example, Captain Falcon has the best Fair because the sweetspot can KO at low percentages.

Main Page[edit]

I know what the answer is gonna be, but can I put this on the main page, like the polls were? Cheezperson {talk}stuff 05:40, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

I don't know how the sysops will react, but I say it's worth a shot. - GalaxiaD (talk) 21:34, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Well, these are a bit more encyclopedic than the polls were, but I still have my doubts. Having them be on the main page, like I said earlier, would make sure that the public sees it. Cheezperson {talk}stuff 22:16, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
Although it would be nice if they just read this forum page... Cheezperson {talk}stuff 00:49, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Luigi with the Poltergust 3000, the perfect character by far. Alex25 (talk)

How would this work as a poll? Cree318 (talk) 21:53, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

we're not making up moves, meaning no Poltergust, where taking moves that are already there, and making them one character. I personally thinks it's a good idea by the way. 00:15, 1 November 2008 (UTC)(The Poltergust 3000 would be awesome for Luigi though)

But Wouldn't some users maliciously edit the choices or results? Is there a way to make it like, admin-only or something? DarkSmasherElite (talk) 14:36, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Well, this idea's been dead for a while, but there is a way to do what you said. All an admin has to do is protect the page, and since the main page is already protected, it would be automatic. Of course, unless this gets popular again, this won't matter. Cheezperson {talk}stuff 22:28, 17 June 2009 (UTC)


Are we aloud to make ideas yet? If so:

B:Falcon Punch(Not necessarily Falcon of course)

Side B:pikman Throw

Up B:Aether

Down B:Pikman Pluck

Final Smash:Super sonic(Not necessarily sonic)or a variant of the Great Aether of Triforce slash (but not exactly them)

As for how he'd look, I'd say Meta Knight. He should be able to fly to.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Thanks for not signing your post buddy!O, Mighty Smoreking 13:19, 11 November 2008 (UTC) The 2nd FS idea was mine. It's not biased by my top characters. They just rule. The Landmaster is why Falco isn't my top character Ike's Best BuddyGreat Aether! 12:34, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Uh... End Of Day is the best Final Smash. Then Critical Hit. U-Smash and MOST DEFF Forward Smash should be Wolf's... Kperfekt BURN!!! Revert That! 11:56, 14 February 2009 (UTC) Naw, Super Sonic's the best! It may be broken but there's no escaping that Golden Blur. (Hehe...) ~Teh Blue Blur~~You're too slow!~ 12:29, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

But then I could pwn you by yelling "SCRUB" and wiping a towel on your face. Blue Ninjakoopa 13:14, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
