*** You could look at it this way: if we still go by the assumption Bayonetta fights non-lethally in Smash, then the KOs from Gomorrah come from him still keeping the opponents inside his mouth when returning to Inferno. Since that necessitates leaving the arena, it counts as a KO.



* Corrin deciding to join ''Smash 4'' when presented with the route selection is comically baffling, as Ryoma and Xander [[WhatTheHellHero rightfully call him out on.]] However, consider this: in ''Revelation'', he states that he doesn't want to fight either of his siblings or commit to a side. Seeing as how [[WarIsHell he'll have to wage war against one of his homes]] and how generally unpleasant the experience will be, he opts to stay out of the way and find a way to unify his families. Not only does he do this in ''Revelation'', but in ''Smash 4'' as well. His trailer has his Hoshido and Nohr siblings provide positive commentary and cheering him on against the competition, coming together in the process (Sakura and Elise are pleasantly surprised when their big brother [[GenderFlip becomes a cute girl]]). In a way, he was successful at bringing both sides together.

** This also explains why he has the Omega Yato, which only comes into play in ''Revelation'' when the divine weapons of his brothers from both sides (Xander's Siegfried, Leo's Brynhildr, Ryoma's Raijinto and Takumi's Fujin Yumi) react to the Yato. Corrin is already fighting with the full support of both of his families.

*** To compound on that, the Jeanne palette swap gives Bayonetta Dante's color pattern.

** Related: Ryu's trailer being focused on combos and LagCancel. ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' introduced {{combos}} (by way of an AscendedGlitch, though) to the FightingGame world, and became a staple of the genre since then.

* Most competitive and casual players unanimously nominate Corrin as the best of the Fire Emblem characters, mostly due to his Dragon Fang ability giving him disjointed hitboxes that the other characters could only dream of. That already gives Corrin a tactical edge against his fellow swordsmen (and Robin), but the real reason he's better than the rest? It's because of Corrin's weapon, the Omega Yato blade [[spoiler: or, as ''Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation'' revealed, the Fire Emblem, which is canonically THE most powerful weapon in the franchise]], so in addition to his dragon powers, he's already a better-equipped unit than the rest of them.

* Mega Man's final smash, "Mega Legends" has every Mega Man incarnation from every series in the franchise's history, except for Copy X from ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' and Vent and Aile from ''VideoGame/MegaManZX''. While it makes sense immediately that Copy X isn't present, [[BigBad being a bad guy and all]], Vent and Aile have another good reason for not showing up; only one of them can use Biometal Model X at a time, and he's already standing there as VideoGame/MegaManX himself! In a sense, X represents not only the ''X'' series, but ''Zero'' and ''ZX'' as well.

* On a more glum note, Bayonetta has been touted as an overpowered character to the point that some tournaments have banned her from use. How did she end up so strong despite Sakurai sticking so close to the source material? Well, to be blunt, it's ''because'' of the source material, and a good example of how ShownTheirWork can have an ugly side. Ryu got away with it due to being a Fighting Game character to begin with, and Cloud comes with a notable drawback due to how restrictive his LimitBreak mechanic can be, but Bayonetta is a very different beast: both ''{{Bayonetta}}'' and ''Bayonetta2'' are high-octane SpectacleFighters that have a considerably faster pace than ''Smash [=3DS/U=]'', the highest-tier medals in the games require a player of a pretty high caliber to obtain, and the heroine herself brings powerful abilities that, while bread and butter in her own series where most major enemies don't flinch, are just overkill in ''Smash'''s combat system - Witch Time and Bat Within are the worst offenders, by far. Bayo players that are adjusted to the playstyle of both series' (and with ''Bayonetta 2'' as a Wii U title, there ''will'' be people who have played both) are given a tremendous advantage over every other character simply because the rest of the cast can't keep up. While it's a testament to Sakurai's ingenuity that a character with Bayonetta's abilities (and... raciness) works in the game at all and is perfectly fun to play, in the competitive scene it ultimately ended up better on paper than in practice.

* In the Characters page for Smash 4, Chrom is noted to be a little resentful and defensive that he didn't fully make it onto the roster, a sentiment especially prominent in Robin's Codec for Palutena's Advice. Well, ''you'd'' be a little pissed and regularly defending the little dignity you have too [[InUniverse if]] [[ImageBoards you]] [[Website/{{Tumblr}} were]] [[MemeticLoser constantly]] [[Memes/SuperSmashBros mocked]] for whatever you didn't get to do. The Codec was just probably the straw that broke the camel's back.

* Cloud's use of Limit Break also serves as a ShoutOut to his home series' own MassiveMultiplayerCrossover ''DissidiaFinalFantasy''. His gauge fills up through fighting like building up Bravery through connecting Brave Attacks. When the gauge fills up, Cloud use of a powered up special ForMassiveDamage and KOing enemies resembles HP attacks draining health and ending matches.

* In this game, Pit no longer can glide freely like he could in Brawl. But if you recall, Pit was only carrying his bow, the Wings of Pegasus, and a shield. But in this game, Pit has all of that, the Upperdash Arm, the Guardian Orbiters, the Arrows of Light, and the armor given to him in Uprising. It'd be a bit harder to glide with all that weighing him down, no?
