Talk:List of victory poses (SSBU)

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

Future-proofing[edit]

Are the victory poses intended to be listed in any particular order? On the Brawl and Smash 4 equivalent pages, the victory poses are ordered by "up, left, down", and Brawl additionally provides textual distinction for each one. We should definitely be matching the previous systems.

The same is true of the gifs of the poses; they are named according to the equivalent direction for Brawl, which more clearly conveys which is which and makes it easier for a potential template (as Brawl has). I propose that the naming convention for victory gifs for this game match Brawl's, e.g.: Mario-VictoryUp-SSBU.gif

There is another thing of note: each character has the victory pose used in team battles pre-set. They are set to use one of their victory poses for when they are the leader of the team, and another (or the same one, for many characters) when they are not. It should be documented which pose is used for each of these situations.

I bring up these suggestions because as it is, many of these that are already documented are going to need to be re-verified for which directional input they are. I'd like to make this point now, because otherwise later on we're going to have 200 victory poses which do not list their directional input (requiring them all to be retested) and 200 images which need to be renamed to match a convention.

I think we also need gifs for the gender alts for Pokemon Trainer and Inkling since they *do* pose differently
