Featured.png The next featured article gets chosen on October 1, 2017.
The current vote leaders are Home-Run Bat and Screen KO with a total of +2 each.

Featured articles are considered to be the best articles on SmashWiki, as determined by our editors. Before being listed here, articles are reviewed at featured article candidates for accuracy, completeness, and style. A small, stylized Super Smash Bros. logo with a star on an article's page indicates that the article is featured, or has been featured in the past.

You can view all featured article snippets on SmashWiki:Featured content/Full.

Rules and regulations[edit]

  • Feature articles will be chosen quarterly: on the first of January, April, July, and October.
  • New suggestions may not be added in the month leading up to the next featured article (e.g. no suggestions in December because it's a month before January).
  • Feature articles will be chosen based on vote count alone. The initial suggestion counts as one vote to the positive, and users may not therefore vote again.
  • The article with the highest vote total (supports being +1, opposes being -1) will be chosen.
  • In the event of a tie, an admin picks which article gets used.
  • Suggestions expire:
  • a year after they are given, should they not be chosen.
  • quarterly if they have a score of less than 0.
  • There may be no more than 10 suggestions at any one time.
  • Each user is limited to one suggestion per voting period.
  • All suggestions will be archived when they pass or fail (see here).
  • All votes should be bolded or they will not be counted. (e.g. "support because this page is the greatest of them all!")

Things to consider[edit]

The following is a list of things to consider, both when nominating and voting on an article

  1. Quality and completeness of the article: Does the article sufficiently cover the topic at hand? Is it comprehensible and easy to follow? Are images used effectively and not excessively? Is the article lacking in grammar and spelling errors?
  2. Relevance to Smash: Is the article directly related to the Smash series, or is it more tangential?
  3. Requirements: Does the article have a sufficiently lengthy opening paragraph that it will fill out the featured article space on the main page? Does the article have an identifying image to accompany this description? Has the article been featured before (we do not accept articles that have already been featured)?

How to request that an article be featured[edit]

To propose an article be featured, please do the following:

  • Create a heading under "Proposed featured articles" that looks like this: ===Article Name===, where "Article Name" is the full name of the article you believe is worthy of being labeled as a featured article.
  • Briefly explain why this article merits featured article status.
  • Be sure to sign your proposition with ~~~~

Proposed Featured Articles[edit]

Bayonetta (SSB4)[edit]

This article is well made, and the topic of Bayonetta is a big one, as she is fun in casuals, and strong in competitive play too. LCS (talk) 07:36, 17 March 2017 (EDT)

Support for one reason: SMASHING! Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 09:58, 21 March 2017 (EDT)

Support because Bayo is at the top of the tier list. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation 21:24, 21 June 2017 (EDT)

Oppose. I don't see where it stands out and it's unconcise also. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 16:59, 22 June 2017 (EDT)

Ryu (SSB4)[edit]

This article is very good and with a great summary, this fighter has it all! Can I do it... SURE YOU CAN! Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 21:29, 8 April 2017 (EDT)

  • Support. The pipes are broken! RickTommy 01:04, 22 June 2017 (EDT)
  • Oppose Attributes section is marked for cleanup, and I fully agree: His up-tilt shoryuken isn't even mentioned directly from what I can tell. Looks like a Ryu main mostly wrote it since it does have too much in-depth on weaknesses to compensate for lack of strengths. Plus there are brackets ]] floating next to "air acceleration"; just fixed it. RobSir RobSir-sig.jpg zx 03:56, 1 July 2017 (EDT)

Home-Run Bat[edit]

Fully explains the topic without over inflating it with unnecessary fluff. Also, *KREEEEENG!* Serpent SKSig.png King 04:56, 1 July 2017 (EDT)

Announcer[edit]

From Jeff Manning to Xander Mobus, the announcer is the judge of every battle. He can tell the player when time is up, declare a winner, and even announce the character's name. Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 11:48, 1 July 2017 (EDT)

Screen KO[edit]

Great first paragraph and image for featuring, and the article is complete for lack of a better word. In every interation thus far and a rather zany part of smash gameplay. The star KO doesn't even break the 4th wall, mind you! RobSir RobSir-sig.jpg zx 00:35, 12 July 2017 (EDT)

Support Anyone can tell I absolutely love Screen KOs, I really think without them and Star KOs, Smash wouldn't be the same. Kirby's Crazy Appetite ~ KirbysCrazyAppetiteSig.png 00:43, 12 July 2017 (EDT)
