Costumes For Super Smash Brothers Ultimate

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Thursday!
So, I came up with a cool idea when I was thinking about Zelda and Smash the other day.
Costumes for Super Smash Brothers Ultimate | video games | gaming | nintendo |
We’ve had a wide variety of Zelda characters in the Smash games. For Ultimte, we’re going to have three different Links. We have a different Zelda this time than we have before. All of this is cool and I’m looking forward to it, but I had a thought and I wonder how well it would do if it were true.
I think it would be cool for each character to have their own costume set.
Hear me out…
Most of the characters have different versions of themselves along with different powers or move sets. You can change the colors of their costumes, but what if, instead of just having a different color, their costume changed?
We could have Twilight Princess Link, Toon Link, Young Link, Breath of the Wild Link, etc. We could choose between any kind of Zelda and they can each have their own unique move or two.
Mario, granted one of his costumes kind of looks like the fire flower, but what if he could only shoot fireballs in that costume? We could have ice Mario, Tanooki Mario… Tanooki Mario is in Mario Kart, why not Smash?
Luigi can be himself or have his Poltergust 3000.
I get the characters would be uneven in this sense and a lot of those mechanics are in the game anyway. I’m happy with the way the game is, but I think it would be cool to have a bunch of different Marios duking it out. The same character with the same move set other than one or two unique moves or powers.
Does that even make sense? I’m not sure if my explanation did my idea justice. Again, I don’t want Smash to change and I bet this idea would be really had to program in, but… I think it’d be cool to see all the variations of the characters nonetheless.

What do you think of this? Do you have any ideas you’d like to see in Smash? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. This is not a crazy idea at all. There’s actually precedent for it in fighting games.
    Mortal Kombat X introduced the concept of Variations. Each character had 3 different variations with slight costume changes, as well as a few differences in move sets. They attempted to balance each one in such a way that they still had pros and cons so that there wasn’t one go-to variation that everyone chose.
    I want Cappy Mario with the ability to transform into Pokio, the tank, and….the final thing you transform as (spoilers).

    • Ah, okay. So it’s possible! There are so many variations of these Nintendo characters that I think it would be really cool.
      I didn’t even think of Cappy though… he would be a lot of fun! Even as an assist trophy. He could get the nearest opponent and make them wander around aimlessly for a minute or something.

      • Assist trophy Cappy should transform someone into the flopping piece of meat.
        For Super Rachel Bros, I want:
        – Boshi variant of Yoshi whose super fast, wears glasses, and is full of ‘tude
        – Ryan Reynolds version of Detective Pikachu
        – Pokemon trainer with different starters for each gen
        – The Mr. Dream version of Little Mac for expert players only, who immediately gets knocked off the stage after only 1 hit
        – Pizza guy assist trophy. A door spawns in the background behind a player and knocks them away as pizza guy opens the door, realizes he has the wrong house, and leaves

  2. Love super smash, I’ve been playing it for four years. It would be cool to have those characters in the game. Personally bowser on it, DK v.s bowser would be the coolest thing ever.
