Smash Saturday #6: A Unique Copy
One of Mega Man’s most well known traits is his ability to steal weapons. But then, Nintendo’s Kirby is also well known for copying powers. Thus, if Mega Man were to enter the Smash world with his weapon stealing ability, would he be a mere clone of Kirby?
Maybe not! The member Yellow Devil of the Cutstuff forums suggested a radical idea for Mega Man’s move set: weapon stealing that results in classic Mega Man series powers! The genius of this idea comes in many layers. First off, it ensures VERY different copy moves from Kirby. Second, it allows for a wealthy amount of the Mega Man franchise’s fantastic weapons to be included into his arsenal. Finally, it frees up Mega Man’s down special from having to be a weapon changer.
Above, you can see some of Yellow Devil’s suggestions for what weapons Mega Man could gain from each Smash attendee. These weapons can be based on different attacks they perform (such as the Top Spin mirroring Meta Knight’s Mach Tornado) or just the general nature of the character (Remote Mine fitting to Solid Snake’s stealth tech arsenal).
While I admit that it might be a tad excessive to include a special weapon for each and every character, the possibilities are endlessly awesome. It really is fun connecting the dots to who would give what, which is why I included some of my own match-ups after the jump. Feel free to suggest your own, as well!
