ROB[edit]

I don't think the R.O.B. in Smash Bros. has ever been confirmed to be directly based off the real one. If anything, it seems like the Aincent Minister, judging by its Boxing Ring title, but either way, it doesn't have a stated location of origin. Nyargleblargle (Talk) 15:17, 19 June 2015 (EDT)

Correct. This "real world place of origin" thing is a pretty questionable bit of trivia, since it runs into trouble with stuff like R.O.B., pre-retcon Mario, Luigi, and Donkey Kong, and the fact that several other series involve Earth in their continuities (are Pikmin from a "real world place"?) just complicates the whole thing out of relevance or interest.

Legal[edit]

Ryu's legal info says he is copyright of Capcom USA. I assume he was created by Capcom's US division? Juju1995 (talk) 16:38, May 2, 2019 (EDT)

Capcom Japan handed the rights for Street Fighter over to Capcom USA a while back when the IP was still dormant so they could license it out overseas and maybe squeeze a profit out of it, so they technically have control over what happens with the property, but Capcom USA ultimately answers to Capcom Japan so it doesn't mean much. There's enough legal distinction that they need a separate copyright, but it's all Capcom anyway.NuFace (talk) 16:54, May 2, 2019 (EDT)
