Ganondorf's Profile picture. Where is it?

I was wondering that as well. But whoever said this first should have signed their post.--King Dedede Kirby 21:51, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

As far as I know, we give a profile picture of a character whenever DOJO puts that character up. Ganondorf's one of the characters that hasn't been given his DOJO update yet, so there's no proper picture of him to put up yet.[/s] Erik Jensen (Appreciate me here!) 04:24, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
EDIT: D'OH! Of course Ganondorf's up on DOJO. Right, so that thumbnail picture that's been put into the article works now. Erik Jensen (Appreciate me here!) 17:49, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Toon Link's Picture[edit]

Toon Link's official render has been confirmed on the Brawl website toady and I was wondering if someone could add his picture of his head in this article. I would do it, but I don't know how.--King Dedede Kirby 15:34, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

It would take some precision PhotoShopping in order to scale down and create the head shot, normally. I guess I'll try that out this time. Erik Jensen (Appreciate me here!) 17:15, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Zelda/Shiek[edit]

Should we add a Zelda/Sheik slot for the Melee and brawl sections? I've made one for the melee section if you're wondering what it would look like:

Characters[edit]

Five of the 25+ fighters are characters from the Ocarina of Time dimension, making Zelda the second most represented franchise after Mario if their sub-series were to be counted for.

  • LinkIcon(SSBM).png
    Link: Returning from the original with a somewhat redesigned moveset and a chargeable bow-and-arrow as a new neutral special move, Link becomes somewhat higher-tier than before, but not very much because his Smash-A moves lack knockback. A major difference from the original is that his recovery move has drastically increased in height.
  • YoungLinkIcon(SSBM).png
    Young Link: A new fighter that functions as a clone of Link. As a Melee fighter, Young Link is expectedly less strong and resilient than Link, but with added strength in some of his other moves, as well as the ability to wall-jump.
  • ZeldaSheikIcon(SSBM).png
    Zelda/Sheik: Zelda/Sheik refers to both Zelda and Sheik as one character slot, and it also refers to those who alternates between the 2 characters. Zelda is unique in that she is the only character who can be replaced by another character in the midst of battle, the nimble Sheik, so she is two characters in one. Unlike Brawl, however, not many people use both Zelda and Sheik in Melee and they aren't considered as an own character slot in the tier list.
  • ZeldaIcon(SSBM).png
    Zelda: A new and original fighter. As a Melee fighter, Zelda strikes strong but not all that fast. She uses magic and fire attacks. Players often prefer to fight as her quicker counterpart Sheik and most of time, don't even change to Zelda because of the time it takes to transform to Zelda and back.
  • SheikIcon(SSBM).png
    Sheik: A new and original fighter, Sheik is the alter-ego to the slower and heavier Zelda, so she is two characters in one. As a Melee fighter, it is widely agreed that Sheik's B-moves are not especially useful, yet in spite of that her fighting style affords her a very high position in the tier list. Sheik is not selectable from the character select screen and can only be accessed by transforming from Zelda, though this can be circumvented by holding the A button at the beginning of a match when playing as Zelda, which allows players to begin the match as Sheik.
  • GanondorfIcon(SSBM).png
    Ganondorf: A new fighter that functions as a clone of Captain Falcon, sharing many animations and all special attacks, but with a significantly heavier, slower, and stronger nature, in addition to "dark" effects instead of fire effects. As a fighter, Ganondorf is powerful enough that it practically compensates for his lack of speed in the competitive metagame.

Images for "franchise descriptions"[edit]

A lot of our universe pages have very text-heavy franchise descriptions at the top, without nearly any accompanying images. I'd like to suggest including some Smash-related, series-related images for these sections where appropriate. Nothing too much, but as an example, I'd add something like this and this. Since this would affect a fair number of pages, I'd like to get some input on the idea before anyone implements it. Miles (talk) 22:53, 18 May 2016 (EDT)

Can I see what you have in mind? Serpent SKSig.png King 23:07, 18 May 2016 (EDT)
Mocked it up in the sandbox. Obviously not every series will have as many good images that are Smash-related that work with the text, but at least for some of the core franchises there's stuff like this to work with. Miles (talk) 04:22, 19 May 2016 (EDT)
Bumping this, lest it get buried under all the 1.1.6-related stuff. Miles (talk) 13:38, 20 May 2016 (EDT)
One last bump. If nobody has any objections, I'll start implementing this later today. Miles (talk) 12:07, 21 May 2016 (EDT)
May I suggest putting this in a more general place, like the Watercooler? It isn't relevant only for the Zelda universe, and it would gain more visibility. -Menshay (talk) 12:41, 21 May 2016 (EDT)
Well, I had hoped the bumping plus the header in RC would be enough to catch the attention of anyone with an opinion on the subject. It didn't seem like a major enough change to warrant its own forum. Miles (talk) 13:02, 21 May 2016 (EDT)

I do like the idea, and seeing as the franchises with larger descriptions are the ones that need pictures (and said franchises are usually major ones with plenty of potential pictures) it would work perfectly with the idea presented. BaconMasterBaconMasterSig.png 13:40, 21 May 2016 (EDT)
