Marth[edit]

Character description is one of the best I've seen, being near-perfect in length and detail, and describes Marth's Smash Bros appearances very well. Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 18:10, 29 September 2015 (EDT)

Bump after Wave 4 DLC. Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 08:36, 2 October 2015 (EDT)
Support: Honestly, he's easily one of my favorite characters that was added in Melee. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 08:44, 2 October 2015 (EDT)

Another bump. Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 11:59, 14 October 2015 (EDT)

Oppose: The page is in full protection due to edit warring. SerpentKing (talk) 12:54, 14 October 2015 (EDT)
Edit wars are not relevant to FAs IMHO. INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 16:14, 16 October 2015 (EDT)
I think the point is that having the first wiki article new visitors see unable to be edited by them sends the wrong message. Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 16:15, 16 October 2015 (EDT)
Agreed; while Marth was one of two personal favorite additions to Melee to me, a protected article makes the point mute. Aidanzapunksignature.pngAidan, Master of Speed and AuraAidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNG 16:17, 16 October 2015 (EDT)
I think the full protection should go away in a day or so. INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 16:18, 16 October 2015 (EDT)
Oh yeah :P Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 16:29, 16 October 2015 (EDT)

Result: Yes Passed. Serpent SKSig.png King 16:35, 26 January 2016 (EST)

Ness[edit]

Look at this. Just look at this. It explains everything about him without going into too much detail, and it has a decent amount of info and trivia.Qwerty the lord Nessytrewq.jpg 19:43, 19 May 2014 (EDT)

Per Qwerty. As long as it isn't "knockback" anymore, I'm fine with it. --Meester Tweester (talk) 19:36, 21 April 2015 (EDT)
Not flawlessly written, but pretty good. I don't know how it compares to other featured articles, so I'll remain neutral for now. Nyargleblargle (Talk) 19:42, 21 April 2015 (EDT)

Result: No Failed by expiry. Serpent SKSig.png King 16:39, 26 January 2016 (EST)

Fireball[edit]

Describes the functions of both Mario and Luigi's fireballs and the origin of the move extremely well. Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 16:04, 16 October 2015 (EDT)

Bump. Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 13:14, 20 October 2015 (EDT)

Support Organized. Penro ...that's all. PenroDarkPitHead.png PenroZSSHead.png 15:58, 28 February 2016 (EST)

Weak support May honestly be the best special move article along with Blaster and Reflector. However, I don't really think its all that too special. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Greninja 19:13, 2 March 2016 (EST)

Support. It's undoubtedly the most well-known special move to newbies. RickTommy 22:46, 2 March 2016 (EST)
Support. Has a lot of info. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 23:21, 2 March 2016 (EST)

Support seeing as it's one of the best special move articles. BaconMasterBaconMasterPatSig.pngLuck o' the Irish. 19:57, 3 March 2016 (EST)

Support I agree, lots of special move articles are either a mess or partially incomplete. This one is nice and notable. RobSir RobSir-sig.jpg zx 07:45, 4 March 2016 (EST)

Strong Support. I've been a Mario fan, and Fireball should fit the featured article section nicely.(Accidentally misplaced, remind me not to do that again) PikachuMS.pngPika, Poyo poyo poyo 18:10, 4 March 2016 (EST)

Weak support. This article is fine, and I don't think it's all that great, but I'd rather have this featured than all the rest. MuteSpittah (talk) 18:37, 6 March 2016 (EST)

neutral PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the Pumpkin Pie 14:18, 7 March 2016 (EST)

Strong Support! This is used by Mario & Luigi and I couldn't agree more! Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 22:58, 7 March 2016 (EST)

Strong Support! There's nothing better, Mario and Luigi has the best special move, the Fireball! TabuuandMasterCore (talk) 12:19, 8 March 2016 (EST)

Support A solid discussion point in general for Smash, very relatable for a wide audience of video game players. 15DollarsWentSouth 19:51, 8 March 2016 (EST)

Strong Support!! Probably the most well known special move, and it's good! I hope this becomes featured. The reasons above are also my reason. It's viability of being featured is the same as SSBB Meta Knight!SwagmanSig1.png Swagman, the Green Swordsman SwagmanSig2.png 09:48, 11 March 2016 (EST)

Support A strong article, and a well known special move. All the reasons above as well. Paper Boatz (talk) 08:50, 14 March 2016 (EDT)

Neutral There's nothing wrong with the page; it's pretty good actually, but I'm not sure if it's FA-worthy. --Andymii (talk) 20:28, 17 March 2016 (EDT)

Result: Yes Passed. Serpent SKSig.png King 23:10, 1 April 2016 (EDT)

Jigglypuff[edit]

its an oddball player that only this guy respects, come on, give it a chance! btw i support Nintendofan1653 (talk) EZMONEY!! 17:07, 26 January 2016 (EST)

I think FAs are supposed to be how good the article is, not what the article is about. -- EthanUser:Ethan7(Discussion) 13:46, 27 January 2016 (EST)

Not bad for a quite notable character appearing across all four Smash games but there's still a lot more work to be developed for Jigglypuff's character articles. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Greninja 19:13, 2 March 2016 (EST)

Support. As much as I dislike Jiggly, it's a good feature for April Fools' Day. RickTommy 22:30, 2 March 2016 (EST)
Weak oppose. Could have more written about it. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 23:21, 2 March 2016 (EST)
Weak oppose for the same reasons as Ethan. BaconMasterBaconMasterPatSig.pngLuck o' the Irish. 19:57, 3 March 2016 (EST)
Oppose. Kinda weak article. Not very meaty either. Some of the writing isn't very good. MuteSpittah (talk) 23:01, 7 March 2016 (EST)
Support. i'm all for jigglypuff being featured. its similar to kirby in the sense that its a round pink thing, but i think more people would recognize it if the article was featured. besides, jigglypuff is mega popular

Result: No Failed by lack of support. Serpent SKSig.png King 23:10, 1 April 2016 (EDT)

Alternate costume (SSB4)[edit]

I believe this is worthy of featured article considering how many characters there are in the game with each one having at least 8 alternate costumes (400+ costumes) with almost each one coming from (or likely referencing) costumes from their respective universes, while being able to accurately inform in great detail where those swaps originate from and filtering out information that is too speculative or just plain false. Also, Brawl's was featured. Unknown the Hedgehog 14:22, 27 January 2016 (EST)

Weak oppose. Too much debate surrounding it, and tbh if someone actually looked into it I bet you 50% of the costumes listed there are really huge stretches. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 22:47, 27 January 2016 (EST)
Yes, I also have some...concerns with this page. Given that I have went through it...multiple times...to clean out the undesirable descriptions only to find more the next week, I have to oppose. Serpent SKSig.png King 22:50, 27 January 2016 (EST)
I would say 50% is a huge exaggeration considering it has been gone through multiple times by multiple people since it was made and, from what I could see, I haven't seen a one time removal of mass false information. Which indicates to me that this article has been well kept up on the info being added. Yes, the occasional false info sometimes comes, but nothing major that hasn't been fixed somewhat quickly. Unknown the Hedgehog 23:04, 27 January 2016 (EST)
Well, yes, I did exaggerate (and purposefully), but I still think that too much of the page is really just garbage comparisons to be a featured article. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 14:38, 3 February 2016 (EST)
What about the main alternate costume page? AidanzapunkSig1.pngAidan, the Wandering Space WarriorAidanzapunkSig2.png 14:43, 3 February 2016 (EST)
Ehhhh, it's less messy but not as informative. It basically serves as navigation and basic descriptions that if you don't understand already you have a problem. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 14:53, 3 February 2016 (EST)
oppose it has a cleanup tag on it PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the fluffyPoultrysigSSBB.png 16:18, 5 February 2016 (EST)
Yeah,oppose. Just because it's big doesn't mean it's good. Penro ...that's all. PenroDarkPitHead.png PenroZSSHead.png 19:44, 12 February 2016 (EST)
Oppose. This page get changed too much. Each costume has a description, then it gets removed later without warning. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is made in America 09:27, 1 March 2016 (EST)
Oppose. On very, very shaky ground in terms of what it does have. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 18:35, 2 March 2016 (EST)
Oppose Alternative Costume pages are a fucking mess anyways. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Greninja 19:13, 2 March 2016 (EST)
Support. I agree with everyone else, but considering the date the new featured article comes... RickTommy 22:46, 2 March 2016 (EST)
So your saying you would oppose like everybody else but on the other hand, you support due to how convenience the article is for FA? Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Left 4 Dead 09:58, 23 March 2016 (EDT)

Oppose. Changes too much to be an outstanding article. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 23:21, 2 March 2016 (EST)

Oppose. This page has come a long way, but it's simply unstable - content is constantly being changed, removed, added in, and there are soooo many stretches. MuteSpittah (talk) 18:53, 6 March 2016 (EST)

Oppose The page functions, but is definitely not FA-worthy. There's arguably not too much content; it's mostly a list. --Andymii (talk) 20:30, 17 March 2016 (EDT)

Result: No Failed by lack of support. Serpent SKSig.png King 23:10, 1 April 2016 (EDT)

Announcer[edit]

The announcer plays an important part in Smash. From announcing characters to calling matches, I think that this should be good enough to be featured. Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 16:32, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

It's about the article, not the subject. This article is nothing special in my opinion. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 17:18, 3 April 2016 (EDT)
Hard oppose: The intro paragraph is far too short, meaning that to actually feature this, we'd have to included text from the other sections, making this a real mess of a feature article. Serpent SKSig.png King 17:23, 3 April 2016 (EDT)
Oppose. Too short and arguably too many unnecessary images. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 17:58, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

I had this in mind for my potentially good articles list but it looks too underdeveloped. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Justice 19:31, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

Oppose, there isn't much to be said about the Announcers in the first place hence the lack of content and underdeveloped nature of the article. MuteSpittah (talk) 22:49, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

Result: No Failed by ineligibility. Serpent SKSig.png King 00:00, 8 April 2016 (EDT)

Roy[edit]

Roy is arguably one of the most popular Smash characters (and was one of two most wanted veterans to return to Smash, alongside Mewtwo). Additionally, Marth and Roy both contributed to bringing Fire Emblem to the western audiences, making their inclusion in Melee a very smart decision on Sakurai's part. Honestly, as I think about it, I don't know anyone who DOESN'T know who Roy is. Even some of my non-Smash playing friends know who he is. Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 16:51, 26 January 2016 (EST)

I think FAs are supposed to be how good the article is, not what the article is about. -- EthanUser:Ethan7(Discussion) 13:46, 27 January 2016 (EST)
Well then in that case, this was pointless. :I Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 13:47, 27 January 2016 (EST)
If the article is as good as Marth's, than it should be a FA. How does this article stand out, how informative is it, etc. -- EthanUser:Ethan7(Discussion) 13:51, 27 January 2016 (EST)
Despite the fact that its reason for nomination isn't relevant for featured articleship, I do support this. Roy's page is very well written. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 14:39, 3 February 2016 (EST)
weak support PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the fluffy 17:02, 7 February 2016 (EST)
Same as Poultry Somewhat of an odd an unknown character, but very long and useful, and gives a great impression on people looking to this wiki for info. Penro ...that's all. PenroDarkPitHead.png PenroZSSHead.png 15:58, 28 February 2016 (EST)
Remember, it's about the article, not the subject. But I support. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 16:37, 28 February 2016 (EST)

Neutral leaning towards support. Not quite as good as Marth's; it goes into too much detail IMO, but still an excellent article. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 18:35, 2 March 2016 (EST)

Neutral His popularity status and well developed character articles makes it a good article for FA but Ethan7 said it. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Greninja 19:13, 2 March 2016 (EST)

Support. Well, he is one of my Melee mains. RickTommy 22:46, 2 March 2016 (EST)
Please read the reminder above. Penro ...that's all. PenroDarkPitHead.png PenroZSSHead.png 23:04, 3 March 2016 (EST)

Support; It's well written, and flows quite nicely. BaconMasterBaconMasterPatSig.pngLuck o' the Irish. 19:57, 3 March 2016 (EST)

Weak oppose In all honesty, we just had Marth so perhaps we put this one on the back burner. We're not Sakurai, we don't love FE that much. RobSir RobSir-sig.jpg zx 07:45, 4 March 2016 (EST)

Oppose I can't help but feel like having Roy be a featured article out of all the FE characters would feel very biased to fans, because everyone has a different preference on what character comes to their mind when they think of Fire Emblem in general. 15DollarsWentSouth 15:48, 6 March 2016 (EST)
In that case we shouldn't have any articles on any Fire Emblem characters. Weak support, it doesn't stand out, just like Fireball doesn't, but it's second-best in comparison to all other nominees. MuteSpittah (talk) 19:08, 6 March 2016 (EST)
I was more so referring to the reasons given on why he should become a featured article. "I don't know anyone who DOESN'T know who Roy is" sounds heavily biased to me. 15DollarsWentSouth 14:17, 7 March 2016 (EST)
Oh ok. Well it's more of an assumption than a biased statement. A biased statement is just a statement slanted by personal opinion. MuteSpittah (talk) 22:47, 7 March 2016 (EST)
SupportI think Roy is a capable fighter for the feature article as he is truly an underrated veteran and smasher. It's also a very good article. cAKE(talk) RoyHeadSSB4-U.png 8:12 PM, 8 March 2016 (AEST)
Roy isn't a smasher, he is a fighter. A smasher is someone who plays smash. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 11:53, 8 March 2016 (EST)

Support The page is very well written and thorough. It's good to give a relatively lesser-known character some more publicity. Not that it matters too much, but the page also looks very neat. --Andymii (talk) 20:22, 17 March 2016 (EDT)

Strong Support Roy is possibly the most popular character in Melee. His return in SSB4 was very hyped. Besides, I LOOOOOVE him. One of my favorite characters in SSBM and SSB4. Besides, I agree with Andymii.SwagmanSig1.png Swagman, the Green Swordsman SwagmanSig2.png 08:15, 29 March 2016 (EDT)

Strong Support One of the best Fire Emblem characters in Smash! Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 16:32, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

Strong Support My own love for the character aside, this is a very well written page that would do a solid featured article. Ragnarok320, The Toa of Fire RagnarokSignature.png (talk) 19:30, 1 June 2016 (EST)

Strong Support Ever since his re-inclusion in SSB4, Roy's fan base has continued to grow Indefinatley. As one of the most popular characters from Melee, I think it's time our red haired Boy continues to hold the spotlight. Maineroadfan (talk) 10:14, 4 June 2016 (EDT)

You are supposed to vote by the article's quality and not the subject. Anyways, welcome to SmashWiki. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 10:42, 4 June 2016 (EDT)

Weak Support The article could be better. AlbumArt-Dixie.png TabuuandMasterCore 00:33, 14 June 2016 (EDT)

Result: Yes Passed. Serpent SKSig.png King 22:08, 30 June 2016 (EDT)

Satoru Iwata[edit]

Short, to the point, gives all necessary information without overdoing it. Also a nice sentiment of respect to the former Nintendo president. Serpent SKSig.png King 16:26, 7 February 2016 (EST)

Support for reasons stated ScizorSteelix 16:36, 7 February 2016 (EST)
Strong support for every possible good reason. BaconMasterBaconMasterSig.png 16:37, 7 February 2016 (EST)

Dat strong support tho. --BeepYouSignature.png The 70's called. They said BeepYou was here :v (talk) 17:29, 7 February 2016 (EST)
Weak support. It's an okay-written article, but given that it's arguably relevant to Smash (the only things Iwata has over Tatsumi Kimishima is that he was somewhat involved in the creation of Smash Bros. and was featured in the Mii Fighters' trailer), I don't know if it really should be on SmashWiki (not I'm going to suggest deletion, but) much less featured. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by cupid♥. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 20:32, 7 February 2016 (EST)
Obligatory Support Iwata definitely was a big part of Nintendo; which means he was directly a part of smash. Terrible puns aside, he did quite a bit of coding for 64 and Melee if I'm not mistaken. One problem I see here is that it might be too little, too late. Perhaps opening scabby emotional wounds of the past isn't such a good idea. RobSir zx 21:55, 7 February 2016 (EST)
Extremely strong support Let's do it in memory of Iwata. Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 22:46, 7 February 2016 (EST)
I just wanna say that doing a FA doesn't have anything to do with the subject, so copying quotes he said (Poultry) or saying to do it in honor of him (The D) doesn't seem like a valid point. However, I Support per Serp King's former point. Penro ...that's all. PenroDarkPitHead.png PenroZSSHead.png 15:58, 28 February 2016 (EST)

Support per SK. Drill Blaster Mark 2 (talk) 08:27, 1 March 2016 (EST)

Absolute support per literally everyone. Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 17:28, 1 March 2016 (EST)

Leaning towards oppose; I deeply respect Iwata, but I have to admit the article itself is nothing particularly special. It's also a bit short to recommend as a FA, by my judgment. Miles (talk) 17:39, 1 March 2016 (EST)

Do you want me to count this as neutral or oppose? Serpent SKSig.png King 18:18, 1 March 2016 (EST)
Oppose. I respect Iwata a ton as well, but I think the ship has sailed for SW to have given a tribute to him. In addition, the article is pretty basic and short in length, and nothing really stands out to me that leads me to think that it should be a FA. MuteSpittah (talk) 18:58, 1 March 2016 (EST)
I just want to point out: Since when has it been a bad thing for an article to be short? Serpent SKSig.png King 19:02, 1 March 2016 (EST)
Nothing. It's just that, and I'm not sure how everyone else feels about this, but if there's going to be a featured article I'd expect it to me meaty. Not particularly long but not particularly short. Long enough to cover the topic, short enough to keep it interesting. There's not enough meat on the bones of the article for it to be something interesting enough to be something featured. That's just my sentiment though. I know it's not a requirement. MuteSpittah (talk) 19:11, 1 March 2016 (EST)
Except the article does cover its topic, and its interesting in my opinion (of course I could be biased as a wrote the thing, but...) Serpent SKSig.png King 19:18, 1 March 2016 (EST)
It could be better and more interesting. That's all I'm saying. I didn't mean what I said originally (I was trying to echo Miles), but what I really wanted to say is that, it could be better, have more details, and more interesting stuff. MuteSpittah (talk) 21:08, 1 March 2016 (EST)
Really the only page on a person that's actually somewhat satisfactory is Sakurai's. Albeit, this is because he is the person most relevant to Smash, so obviously there's gonna have to be more written about him here, and people less relevant to Smash (Miyamoto, Itoi, Sugimori) are gonna have far less written about them and that's that. So Iwata's page can't be all that meaty in comparison to Sakurai's, but it could be far better given his roles in the original Smash game. If I were to use an analogy, I'd say that Sakurai's page is perfectly short skirt quality, while Iwata's page is like a speedo. It could cover more. MuteSpittah (talk) 21:17, 1 March 2016 (EST)
I support SK: it doesn't need to be long to be featured. --BeepYouSignature.png BeepYou, a user with no grammar at all :v (talk) 19:24, 1 March 2016 (EST)
Oppose. A good article, but it's frankly not on the level of a Featured Article IMO. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 18:35, 2 March 2016 (EST)
Oppose as well. I'm going to have to agree with Nyargleblargle and Miles on here. Developer articles are not really important to this wiki. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Lax 18:58, 2 March 2016 (EST)
Oppose. Too insensitive for a feature that starts on April Fools' Day. RickTommy 22:46, 2 March 2016 (EST)

Change to oppose for the reasons given by Nyargle, Miles, and myself. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 23:35, 2 March 2016 (EST)

Changing to oppose I said myself it might be too little, too late. RobSir RobSir-sig.jpg zx 07:45, 4 March 2016 (EST)

Oppose With all due respect, other than its subject, this article isn't all that special. Amiibae signature image.pngLuke Talk::: 18:28, 6 March 2016 (EST)

Highest Support! If you are forgetting, he received a special thanks in the first two Smash games. He also was in the mii fighter trailer! And in some Nintendo directs.SwagmanSig1.png Swagman, the Green Swordsman SwagmanSig2.png 09:52, 11 March 2016 (EST)

It's about the article, not the subject. I oppose, the article could probably have more information, like the special thanks you talked about. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 13:15, 14 March 2016 (EDT)

Oppose As people have said, just because Iwata is an amazing person doesn't mean his page is. The page is pretty run-of-the-mill; there's nothing that makes is outstanding. It's pretty short as well, especially considering everything Iwata did. --Andymii (talk) 20:19, 17 March 2016 (EDT)

I agree with Serpent King, a short article isn't bad. Besides, he WAS a major developer in every game.SwagmanSig1.png Swagman, the Green Swordsman SwagmanSig2.png 19:50, 18 March 2016 (EDT)
It isn't a bad article, it just isn't outstanding. Him being a major developer has nothing to do with the article, but the subject. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 19:57, 18 March 2016 (EDT)

Oppose Very good article, but it's not featured enough. Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 07:19, 4 April 2016 (EDT)

Result: No Failed by lack of support. Serpent SKSig.png King 22:08, 30 June 2016 (EDT)

Smasher:ZeRo[edit]

Besides being the best Smash 4 player, it actually is a very good article. It is neutral, has lots of information, and is very accurate. PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the Team Liquid 17:44, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

That deserves a support. This is a good article! Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 17:49, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

Weak oppose. The format is incredible and most of it is stellar. The big problem with it is that the history section is too long and harps on specific results. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 17:58, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

Oppose If we were to do a smasher page as a featured article, sure along with Mew2King but its uncomfortable otherwise (though if we do, I wonder how would ZeRo react on Youtube to us). Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Doc 19:20, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

Bump. Dots, we every single FA ever was casual, give the competitive scene a chance PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the Team Liquid 07:10, 22 April 2016 (EDT)
Every featured article isn't related to causal play. Marth and Fireball, for example, could be related to causal and competitive play. And it's not like the competitive scene is in trouble and needs more publicity. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 21:29, 22 April 2016 (EDT)

Oppose It has a similar issue that the Announcer article had, that there's not a whole lot going on for the intro of the article and things will have to be pulled from other sections in order for it to work.

Fox (SSBM)[edit]

He is notorious for his waveshine combos. He is also one of the fastest characters in the series. He is also EXTREMELY popular competitively.SwagmanSig1.png Swagman, the Green Swordsman SwagmanSig2.png 08:42, 2 April 2016 (EDT)

Look, we do not make pages featured articles because of the thing they are about (the subject, which in this case, is Melee Fox), we make them on the quality of the article (how clean it is, how much info it has, etc.). This article is rather good in my opinion after looking at all the information it has in the introduction, "Attributes" and "In competitive play". It could have more in "Changes from Smash 64 to Melee", though. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 11:41, 2 April 2016 (EDT)

Super Strong Support Very nice article and good details. Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 18:15, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

Considering how Fox is Competitive Melee's mascot, this won't be a bad idea although maybe push Fox as a whole. It isn't just Melee that he's beloved, he's a favorite among all smashers and although in my opinion he kinda gets more annoying within sequels (seriously Fox's voice in Smash 4), you have to admit that he's an awesome character to use in any Smash game. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Justice 19:31, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

Some wording issues here and there but overall good article, would support this or Fox in general. MuteSpittah (talk) 22:52, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

Support This is the kind of article that needs featured at some point, especially since it only changes every 3 months. To outsiders, this may well define competitive smash. It is well written, gets to the point, and is fairly unbiased, which can't be said about most Brawl character pages. (There are straight up opinions in those articles someone should clean it up lol).

Weak Oppose. Could have more in "Changes from Smash 64 to Melee" to better explain how he moved from 4th to 1st on current tier lists. Also, having too many character pages as featured articles is supposedly a reason for why this is not worthy to be a featured article. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 15:45, 8 July 2016 (EDT)

Strongly Oppose. Do we really need to inflate the hot headed Melee players more than they already are? Hell "Fox Only, No Items, Final Destination" Is a meme that people use to mock the smash bros competitive scene and I really don't think the wiki should be advertising it by putting Fox's Melee profile as a featured article.

Downloadable content[edit]

Aside from being kinda lengthy and list-y, this article is well structured and has nice visuals\images. Covers important info well while being as concise as possible. Since the DLC days are finally over it might be nice to reflect by the time a new FA is needed. It certainly isn't one of the most interesting out there but I think it can warrant a feature.

Oppose. We should probably wait until we know that no more gameplay balances are to be made so we don't end up having to edit a featured article. Destructodon (talk) 14:19, 16 October 2016 (EDT)
I think at this point, we can be pretty sure that they are done, but I could be wrong. Even still, I don't really see how this is a good reason to not feature it... editing a featured article is not really a big deal. Serpent SKSigHalloween.png King 14:28, 16 October 2016 (EDT)
So are you discounting my oppose because you disagree with it, which is unfair, or does the initial suggestion count as a support? And the reason that i believe my reason is good is that if we have to edit it, it isn't complete, which is one of the criteria.
No no of course not. Your vote is still counted. There are 6 supports (the initial suggestion counts as one) and 2 opposes for a total of +4 Serpent SKSigHalloween.png King 15:57, 16 October 2016 (EDT)

Yes, the major flaw of going by vote count alone...I agree with DNK, though. If you are going to oppose an FA, you should at least have a semi-valid reason for doing so. Serpent SKSig.png King 21:07, 13 February 2016 (EST)
sorry for this late response but i think that if codec wasnt featured, why should PG be (codec for the win!) plus codec is much more detailed about all the metal gear references PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the Pumpkin Pie 16:49, 28 February 2016 (EST)
That's... not a better reason. Besides, PG doesn't have nearly as many references as the codec does, so it can't be more detailed. It has all of the relevant information listed. Besides, you can re-nominate Codec if you want. But judging this one based on the fact that an article you liked wasn't seems unfair. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you.

Weak oppose I have to agree that it's really just a list of quotes ripped directly from SSB4. Not that it's not an interesting article all the same. BaconMasterBaconMasterSig.png 16:27, 1 July 2016 (EDT)
Oppose I don't believe this is actually a good example of SmashWiki's excellence, which is what we are looking for in a featured article, due to the lack of prose. Plus, most of the Support votes aren't really about the article, but the Guidenece itself, which really isn't the point. PenroImage.pngPenro 13:34, 8 July 2016 (EDT)
Oppose: The article only occasionally elaborates on some of the detalis brought up in conversations (the Koopalings mystery, Link and Pit being released on the same year, etc.) and not others (the "ninjas that just eats very slowly" comment with Greninja, Falco being the leader of a galactic gang, "DO A BARREL ROLL!" with Fox, etc.). This is especially important since the article links to the characters' playstyle in SSB4 and not the "main" articles that actually have their backstory. Beyond that, some of the existing writing is a bit clunky in places; it's noticeable with the notes for Meta Knight, Samus, Shulk, WFTrainer, Yoshi, and especially Wario, though it wouldn't take much to clean it up. The lack of images doesn't help it much, either. Reversinator (talk) 12:22, 3 September 2016 (EDT)

Strongly Support. Probably one of the most interesting aspects of SSB4, I know nothing of KI but I still love hearing what they have to say regarding the different characters. It gives an in-universe look at how some nintendo characters see each other. Also viridi's comment about "Spending years studying Ganon Canon" made me laugh my butt off. One of the best features in this game.

Wombo Combo[edit]

One of the most famous moments in the history of Smash. Destructodon (talk) 14:14, 16 October 2016 (EDT)

I take it you didn't read the "things to consider" section. We shouldn't only suggest things based on relevance, we also need to look at the quality and completeness of the article. Disaster Flare DisasterFlareHalloweenSigImage.png (talk) 14:33, 16 October 2016 (EDT)

Well I'll have you know i did read that and i believe the article is a complete, quality article. Destructodon (talk) 15:54, 16 October 2016 (EDT)

Oppose. I was okay with Fox (SSBM) being featured considering that he is the face of Competitive Melee with an well in-depth article explaining his tournament popularity and success in Melee, and that I agree that competitive articles in general need to be featured more often. However, we do not need to go as far as memes from competitive play regardless of how (in)famous they are. Plus, like Disaster Flare said, an article is featured for quality and completeness.
(On a personal note, I personally think that while the Wombo Combo is still a classic moment among the Smash community, the meme is honestly getting really old, not helped by the fact that the annoying MLG videos abuse them.) Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Bullet 00:42, 24 October 2016 (EDT)
Oppose: after thinking about it, I seriously do not think that this article is feature material. The article is 10 mostly short sections that talk very little about the combo itself (not the fault of the writer, there really is little to talk about), then the rest of the article is about its legacy, which is really not the best formatting method.
