Friday (Least) Favorites: Super Smash Bros. Items

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Friday, everyone!
Last week, I shared a list of some of my favorite items from the Super Smash Bros. video game franchise. This week, I thought I would share a few items that are not my favorites. If these items below do not make an appearance for Smash Bros. on the Switch, I will not be heartbroken!

Lip’s Stick
This item was always annoying to me, especially on the receiving end. I mean, that’s the point, but I still hated getting hit with this item and having a damage-causing flower pop up on my character’s head. It definitely wasn’t the most powerful battering item, either.
Banana Peel
Just like when I see them on the Mario Kart tracks, seeing a banana peel join the fight makes me groan. I almost always chuck it off the stage, if I’m able to, as I’m more wont to tripping on the peel myself during the melee.
Mr. Saturn
While I’m guessing his appearance is a nod to Earthbound fans, I don’t understand Mr. Saturn’s existence in the Smash Bros. games. Why is he there? He only makes an odd sound if he’s thrown at someone. Otherwise, he just kind of wanders around.
Screw Attack
This is a hit or miss for me. Generally, the characters I use in the Smash games are characters who have decent jumps and up-slashes. The Screw Attack kind of nullifies the jumps of the characters, and I tend to forget if I’m wearing the badge or not, generally ruining whatever combo I may have been planning.

  1. As an Earthbound fan (as obviously declared by my avatar), I love Mr. Saturn. But you are right. I think he is in just as some sort of fan service.

  2. I’m sure I read somewhere that Mr. Saturn can do something to someone’s shield, but I’m not quite sure what that was or where I read it!
