Forums: Index Watercooler Why do you main the character you main?

I'm curious. Why do you main the character you main? All I ask is that you give a brief or lengthy explanation. I'll start: I main Mario and Kirby in every installation because I like their games (playing them got me into gaming in general), and I like the way they feel in Smash Bros. as characters. I main R.O.B. in Brawl because I like his design and moveset a lot, and have been a huge fan of him ever since I saw him in Mario Kart DS. The reason I main the same characters with each passing generation is because I like being consistent, and switching characters with each new game doesn't seem like it would help me develop any skills.

I main Marth in both Melee (as a co-main) and Brawl because I just love how he plays. Chilex (talk) 19:29, 26 July 2014 (EDT)

R.O.B. just fits me perfectly. Experience with Olimar and Toon Link has taught me that I play best when I rely on projectiles. R.O.B. has a quick, accurate projectile (uncharged Robo Beam), a slower but stronger projectile (charged Robo Beam), and an item-style projectile (Gyro). Other attacks such as the forward tilt also have great range. The other main reason is that I have loved robots for my whole life, as the TV show Robot Wars is one of my biggest passions. Therefore, R.O.B. is a character with a strong projectile game, and is a robot. Perfect. Bring him back for Smash 4, I'm begging you, Sakurai.

I main Yoshi because he's Yoshi, regardless of the game or his attributes. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Irrepressible 22:23, 26 July 2014 (EDT)

I like characters with satisfying aerials, so Luigi, G&W, and R.O.B. are good choices for me. That said, I prefer a little-bit-of-everything sort of playstyle (not quite to "maining random") over sticking to a few characters. Miles (talk) 22:25, 26 July 2014 (EDT)

I main Kirby, well because my cousin introduced me to Super Smash Brothers on the N64 a while back and he is a Kirby main. I eventually learn his movesets and that's why I'm a Kirby main. Although my favorite pairing is Zelda and Falco, I use them often but not for completing modes on higher difficulties. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is bad for me 22:37, 26 July 2014 (EDT)

Before Brawl was first shown off, I've never heard of Pit. I was intrigued to see how he would play out, and since I really like supernatural characters, I wanted to play as him. Never regretted that decision, as he is now my main. Berrenta (talk) 22:42, 26 July 2014 (EDT)

I play off of setups and quick-time thinking. Ness has a very fast ground game and a powerful SHFF game, so I think that's good. And also because PK Fire>Down tilt>Grab>Pummel>D-throw>Fair/Dair is cheap. I can also feed off of trip animations using my 100% tripping sweetspotted down tilt to set up slow powerful stuff like Fsmashes or short hopped Uairs (and in the best case scenario, PK Fire combos).

I main Meta Knight, well just because I main him. Generally I like the characters who are lightweight and are easy to play. Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The Bullet 23:10, 26 July 2014 (EDT)

I main Falco/Fox in Melee because performing consistent tech skill is satisfying, and their combos and punishes are very fun to mix up since they have so many options. Same thing can be said about Fox in Smash 64. And I main MK in Brawl because of his speed and techniques. Scr7Scr7 sig.png(talk · contribs) 03:53, 27 July 2014 (EDT)

I've noticed over time that I have a tendency to gravitate towards "underdog" characters without even realizing it. Captain Falcon/Ganondorf in Brawl came naturally to me, as did playing Dudley in Street Fighter IV or Ryo/Terry/Mai(I play her for the combos) in King of Fighters 13. Since maining Falcon in Brawl I picked him up in the earlier installments. --HavocReaper48 03:55, 27 July 2014 (EDT)
