Bayonetta (SSB4)[edit]

Considering the fact she won the Smash Ballot, I feel she deserves some lime light. Her smash bros profile has a lot of work put into it, she has a lot of extra abilities, like Bullet Arts and Bat Within, that make her one of the more unique characters in the game. And I just feel that she deserves some recognition for that. The one character everyone thought would never get into Smash Bros. not only getting in, but getting in due to popular demand. That and the fact they were able to tone down her sexual nature for an E10+ game, while still staying true to her character, I feel was an amazing feat by Sakurai.

Oppose The FA is mostly based on the quality of the article, not the content of the article itself. AidanzapunkChristmasSig.pngAidan, the Jolly Dragon WarriorAidanzapunkChristmasSig2.png 21:28, 20 December 2016 (EST)
Why cant it be both? Also whats wrong with the quality of the Bayo page? What can be done to get it to the quality it'd need to be?

Stale-move negation[edit]

Describes everything in full detail and tells it in a very clean way. Plus, very well known, and somewhat detailed. PenroPenroDarkPitHead.png PenroZSSHead.png 20:14, 5 April 2016 (EDT)

Support per Penro. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 15:50, 14 April 2016 (EDT)

Support for this reason. Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 16:18, 14 April 2016 (EDT)

Bump. This page really is very good, and I'd hate for it to be missed out on it's chance to shine. PenroImage.pngPenro 16:43, 1 July 2016 (EDT)

Weak oppose I think that it might be a little to complicated for some people, but otherwise it is a great article PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 07:13, 7 July 2016 (EDT)

Support even if it is somewhat complicated for some, it is an important and good article all the same. BaconMasterBaconMasterSig.png 13:30, 7 July 2016 (EDT)
Weak Support. Could be better but it talks about an interesting mechanic. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Blue 21:54, 8 July 2016 (EDT)

Support: Good 'n' Interesting. Sir Glazington (talk) 13:14, 28 December 2016 (EST)

Support: Well-written and different from the other featured articles thus far kenniky SMASHROSTERSMALL.png 23:20, 29 December 2016 (EST)

Support. RickTommy 02:20, 1 February 2017 (EST)

Support: Per BaconMaster Area51Guard.png A51 Trooper 03:35, 2 March 2017 (EST)

Support. RagnarokSignature.png Ragnarok320, The Toa of Fire (talk) 0:2:16, 4 March 2017 (EST)

Strong Oppose. 136.63.64.104 22:02, 28 March 2017 (EDT)

Support: The character articles are weak, while this is well-written and has everything relevant to an important aspect of all Smash games. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 22:22, 28 March 2017 (EDT)

Result: Yes Passed. Serpent SKSig.png King 20:00, 1 April 2017 (EDT)

Robin (SSB4)[edit]

A well-written page that covers the character in a clear and concise manner, also very clean and demonstrates everything a fighter page should be. MuteSpittah (talk) 22:46, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

Support This is good indeed. I like it so much. Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 07:20, 4 April 2016 (EDT)

"Victory poses" has an incomplete tag in it. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 14:42, 7 April 2016 (EDT)
Yeah. That's pretty minor though. Marth also had an incomplete tag while it was featured for a time as well. MuteSpittah (talk) 14:47, 7 April 2016 (EDT)
Just saying (no one really voted for Marth anyways). -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 14:57, 7 April 2016 (EDT)
Weak support. Great, but a bit too long, especially the opening paragraph. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 15:50, 14 April 2016 (EDT)

Oppose: really starting to get tired of always featuring fighters. Serpent SKSig.png King 20:25, 26 June 2016 (EDT)

Strong Oppose It's missing Japanese in one section. AlbumArt-Dixie.png TabuuandMasterCore 11:58, 29 June 2016 (EDT)

Weak support Though it is a superb article, 2/3 of the past 3 featured articles (including the current one) have been FE characters. However, as this one is a game-specific page, I feel it is a bit more of a change. BaconMasterBaconMasterSig.png 16:27, 1 July 2016 (EDT)

Oppose. It could still use some work and I don't really see Robin as a feature article that too soon. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Blue 21:54, 8 July 2016 (EDT)

Result: No Failed by expiry. Serpent SKSig.png King 20:00, 1 April 2017 (EDT)

Link[edit]

Has a lot of info, is clean and has many nice images. -- EthanEthan7sig.png(Discussion) 23:38, 3 April 2016 (EDT)

Support A good one indeed. Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 14:01, 14 April 2016 (EDT)

Weak oppose Solid, but could be more concise. Take, for example, the Smash 64 section. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 15:50, 14 April 2016 (EDT)

Support! I mean, come on! It's Link! He is a good fighter and the theread is clean, very nice, and has (like any other thread or whatever you call it. ∆_∆) much info! Hello! (talk) 12:22, 2 June 2016 (EDT)

Oppose: really starting to get tired of always featuring fighters. Serpent SKSig.png King 20:25, 26 June 2016 (EDT)
Strong oppose Same reason as Serpent King. AlbumArt-Dixie.png TabuuandMasterCore 14:07, 2 July 2016 (EDT)
The 46 featured articles so far have consisted of 11 characters, 12 stages , 3 game mechanics, 3 games, 3 game menu areas (SSE, My Music, and Stickers), 2 bosses, 2 items (counting the Final Smash), 2 cosmetic items (music and costumes), 2 techniques, 2 fan creations (Smashtasm and tier list), 1 special move, 1 about AI, 1 about glitches, and 1 about stage aspects (platform). At a 11:12:23 ratio of characters:stages:misc, you have a 23.9%, 26.1%, and 50% featuring proportion, respectively. For a game based heavily on the stages and fighters, these ratios are pretty much expected. If you're getting tired of us recently having featured character articles (which is a whopping number of 2 if you go back to the Master Hand glitch), you need a different voting system. MegaTron1Decepticon.png 12:34, 4 July 2016 (EDT)

Weak support. Great character for a feature article but it could be better. @Serpent King: Why do you think that? Fireball and amiibo, some of the more recent FAs, aren't about characters. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Blue 21:54, 8 July 2016 (EDT)

Support. It's a pretty good article, with plenty of good images, information about him, and his useful tools and placement. PikachuMS.pngPika, Chilly! 14:17, 10 December 2016 (EST)

Support. When I read over it I didn't see anything glaringly wrong. --Meester Tweester (talk) 20:21, 13 December 2016 (EST)

Result: No Failed by expiry. Serpent SKSig.png King 20:00, 1 April 2017 (EDT)

Super Smash Bros. Melee in competitive play[edit]

It really shows how a game designed to be non-competitive can become a competitive scene where people can win up to 15k, shows ups and downs of a important part of this Wiki, it also shows how much the competitive scene, and Smash Bros. as a whole advanced from its early days. That's including SmashWiki too. It is written in a way that many people wouldn't imagine doing, many people don't even think there was a platinum age. It also is written in long and informing paragraphs that definitly tells us a great our community is to put in that much time into one article. I can go on and on about how good this article is and how much it deserves to be featured, but i cannot make up your minds. You, and the rest of the SmashWiki community, will judge this article wisely PoultrysigSSB4.pngPoultryPoultrysigSSBM.png(talk) the God-Slayer 10:53, 1 July 2016 (EDT)

Weak support. A bit lengthy towards the end, but overall well-written and has just the right amount of images. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 17:36, 2 July 2016 (EDT)
Support per NB. BaconMasterBaconMasterSig.png 13:30, 7 July 2016 (EDT)
Weak Oppose. Well-written, but do you think this would be interesting enough? I don't really think so. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Blue 21:54, 8 July 2016 (EDT)
Oppose. Featuring it will undoubtedly inflate Melee supremacists' egos. RickTommy 02:20, 1 February 2017 (EST)
Support. This article is the most relevant to what is going on right now. My 2nd option would be stale-move-negation, but competitive melee is talked about more than any other options. How do you sign things??? —Preceding unsigned comment added by LCS (talkcontribs) 12:15, March 5, 2017‎ (EST)
  • Support because it is well-written! Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 09:18, 21 March 2017 (EDT)
  • Weak Oppose. Not everyone comes here for competitive Smash. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is made in America 12:00, 18 June 2017 (EDT)
  • Support. Well written, and quite the interesting read! ChuckNorris24.png 22:06, 22 June 2017 (EDT)

Result: No Failed by expiry. Serpent SKSig.png King 00:27, 1 July 2017 (EDT)

Stage Builder[edit]

A pretty well rounded and concise article. The intro paragraph is a little short but it could be buffed up a bit or I could always pull a sentence or two from the Brawl and Smash 4 sections. Serpent SKSigHalloween.png King 17:48, 1 October 2016 (EDT)

  • Support: A nice article indeed for the wiki and I like it here! Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 21:38, 1 October 2016 (EDT)
  • Support. RickTommy 02:20, 1 February 2017 (EST)
  • Support. This article has great potential of becoming featured. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Quake 21:18, 3 March 2017 (EST)
  • Support. Per Dots. Area51Guard.png A51 Trooper 03:55, 18 June 2017 (EDT)
  • Support, Heavily well described with pictures. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is made in America 12:00, 18 June 2017 (EDT)
  • Weak support. Fairly well-written, excellently organized, and comprehensive. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 16:06, 18 June 2017 (EDT)
  • Support. Page reads easily and conveys a lot of information, and is relevant to a wide audience. -- Yellow sig.png Yellow of the Grove 21:27, 21 June 2017 (EDT)
  • Support. This article covers stage builders very well, reads well, has a good amount of good images, and has a great table. --Meester Tweester (talk) 02:48, 29 June 2017 (EDT)

Result: Yes Passed. Serpent SKSig.png King 00:27, 1 July 2017 (EDT)

Falco (SSBB)[edit]

This article was written with the same content as other featured Brawl fighter articles. Over the times more pics and other files were added to make the article more visually appealing. There are some red links to pages on standard attacks but many featured articles have that feature as well. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is made in America 01:16, 9 January 2017 (EST)

  • Oppose: Well, it's strange to feature Brawl-related articles now that it's been a while since the game has been at the front of peoples' minds. RickTommy 02:20, 1 February 2017 (EST)
That's not really a good reason for opposing a featured article. A good article is a good article. However, I wouldn't support this one - I don't like some of the wording. John John3637881 Signature.png HUAH! 13:20, 5 March 2017 (EST)
  • Oppose. The attributes section is too choppy and hard to read at points. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 16:06, 18 June 2017 (EDT)

Result: No Failed by lack of support. Serpent SKSig.png King 00:27, 1 July 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)
  • Oppose. Not at all concise enough. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 15:47, 2 September 2017 (EDT)
  • Oppose. It has potential but it needs to be shorten. MHStarCraft Mega Man X SNES sprite.png 21:44, 20 September 2017 (EDT)

Result: No Failed by lack of support. Serpent SKSig.png King 15:27, 1 October 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)

Result: Yes Passed. Serpent SKSig.png King 15:27, 1 October 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)

Oppose The article seems a little bloated with unneeded filler. Serpent SKSig.png King 17:54, 3 September 2017 (EDT)
Oppose Yeah I think this article has some unnecessary info. MHStarCraft Mega Man X SNES sprite.png 21:44, 20 September 2017 (EDT)

Result: No Failed by lack of support. Serpent SKSig.png King 15:27, 1 October 2017 (EDT)

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)

Oppose. It has potential but it needs to be shorten. MHStarCraft Mega Man X SNES sprite.png 21:44, 20 September 2017 (EDT)

Oppose. The attributes section may need trimming. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is a never lover boy 19:35, 1 October 2017 (EDT)

Result: No Failed by lack of support. Serpent SKSig.png King 21:15, 15 January 2018 (EST)

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)
Support I love Screen KOs! Smash won't be the same without that and we need it to keep the battle going. Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 23:05, 27 July 2017 (EDT)
Oppose Needs more explanation. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is bad for me 01:53, 28 July 2017 (EDT)
Weak support. Trivia section is a bit long, but no real issues in layout or writing style. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 15:47, 2 September 2017 (EDT)
Support for being my favourite thing in the entire freaking game. Well, besides Yoshi. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the Internets go! :3 03:00, 3 September 2017 (EDT)
Support It's not too long, but it has most of the information needed for the article, in my opinion, so I'm voting for this one. --Mr. Loser (talk) 21:50, 6 September 2017 (EDT)
Support. I wouldn't mind. MHStarCraft Mega Man X SNES sprite.png 02:03, 20 September 2017 (EDT)
I can Support this a second time, right? Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the Internets go! :3 21:24, 27 December 2017 (EST)
You can but I won't count it :P. Serpent SKSig.png King 21:27, 27 December 2017 (EST)
Support Good article overall, I think this would be a good one to feature. Area51Guard.png A51 Trooper 10:00, 28 December 2017 (EST)
Support Looks pretty good. Clear and concise. Serpent SKSig.png King 18:41, 28 December 2017 (EST)
Support I agree with all of you. I think Screen KO will win with all of it's supports. Koopa Troopa (talk) 10:15, 2 January 2018 (EST)

Result: Yes Passed. Serpent SKSig.png King 21:15, 15 January 2018 (EST)

Victory pose[edit]

Everyone has a different victory pose for winning a match. Ryu has him punching towards the screen, while Sonic has him holding a Chaos Emerald. This gets my support! Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 07:21, 2 October 2017 (EDT)

Oppose A game specific page would be more feature-worthy. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is a never lover boy 23:53, 13 October 2017 (EDT)

Oppose, as this article isn’t as interesting as a single character’s page or pages about the game mechanics. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the Internets go! :3 17:44, 28 December 2017 (EST)

Result: No Failed by lack of support. Serpent SKSig.png King 21:15, 15 January 2018 (EST)

Pocket[edit]

A nice and concise article that fully covers its material without rambling. Even includes damage modifiers for projectiles sent back through use of the move. Serpent SKSigHalloween.png King 13:02, 14 October 2017 (EDT)

Support: That's a great article and it is good for Villager in Smash 4. He can even pocket a Charge Shot. Nice. Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 13:41, 14 October 2017 (EDT)
Support per Serpent; probably the best written move page on this wiki. --Penro 15:41, 13 January 2018 (EST)

Result: Yes Passed. Serpent SKSig.png King 21:55, 2 April 2018 (EDT)
