Hello everyone! Here on Friday, I’m going to wrap up this week on Double Jump with a list of my favorite Super Smash Bros. characters!
Rachel posted her top five early this week and, upon creating my own list, I realized how different our play styles were. She prefers characters that are more strength-based with powerful moves, while my list favors characters that are speedy and hard to hit. Which style do you prefer?
Marth, along with Roy, in Super Smash Bros. Melee for the GameCube was my first introduction to the Fire Emblem franchise. It was because of those characters that I sought out and bought Sacred Stones before being hooked completely on the franchise. Although Roy is awesome, I always preferred Marth due to being just a bit faster.
Ever since Zelda became an option in the Smash Bros. franchise, I’ve always enjoyed using her, more so because she could also transform into Sheik. You essentially had two characters in one, able to switch between whoever was better suited to defeating your opponents. Zelda’s fantastic and powerful magic-based moves, although with the fact that she’s another female contender, has made her one of my favorites.
A new fighter to the franchise, Greninja is one of the final forms of the newest starter Pokemon from X and Y. Greninja was drafted to the Smash Bros. franchise before the Kalos region games were published, and the ninja-like Pokemon is a great addition to the roster! His moves are unique and fun, especially his Water Shuriken and Shadow Sneak.
Robin quickly became another of my favorites for the new Wii U installment of Smash. Having the unique ability to use both swords and magic makes him/her a versatile character, and tons of fun to use. He/she may not be the fastest on the battlefield, but if you plan out the right moves, you can definitely become the victor with Robin.
Sheik has been my favorite character since Ocarina of Time. A mysterious, ninja-like character with some mean harp skills to boot, Sheik being a playable character in the Smash Bros. franchise was totally exciting to me! Now that Sheik is a separate character from Zelda, Sheik has been my number one partner in Smash fights with all the speed and skill that makes Sheik a top contender.
Now if only we could get Geno on the roster…
