Happy Friday everyone!
A few months ago, I did an assist trophy wish list for Smash Bros. Ultimate. So far, I haven’t seen any of the video game homages that were on my wish list, but I haven’t had many complaints about the assist trophies I have seen so far.
Klaptrap from Donkey Kong
This little crocodile is annoying when he’s going after your player, but it’s a great ally when you’re lucky enough to get him. It’s amusing to me to see Klaptrap go and chomp on your opponents!
Krystal from Star Fox
I think I would have enjoyed Krystal as an actual fighter rather than just as an assist trophy. Her staff, unique moves, and just being another female would have made her an interesting fighter. Nevertheless, I liked seeing her appear and go to town in helping to pummel your opponents.
Moon from Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask
While Majora’s Mask is not my favorite Legend of Zelda title, I did like the inclusion of the Moon. The creepy face coming closer and closer to the stage before engulfing in fire to hit everyone is a nice homage to the Legend of Zelda title.
Knuckles from the Sonic the Hedgehog series
Knuckles was always one of my favorite characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, so it was nice to see his cameo in Ultimate. I think he would have been interesting as another fighter with his brawling style, but it’s nice seeing him even as an assist trophy.
Rathalos from Monster Hunter
I don’t play the Monster Hunter series, but this guy is like a dragon. A dragon! I like dragons!
