Don't let it die
[up]Plus, any character in Super Smash Bros. is awesome publicity to relatively unknown Nintendo franchises.

What does it matter if Chibi has tiny in his name? Honestly despite them both being obscure more people have probably heard of Chibi than Rainbow.

I'm an Irene!
Name really wouldn't matter here.

He'd still be sized up accordingly if in.

And he did fight a decent amount in the original game(the first one, I can't speak for other ports/remakes/sequels/prequels/spin-offs, etc.), so I could see him working rather well. He's got a cord and knows how to use it!

Yeah. I could see the seven tools (probably the copter, mug, blaster, and squirter) being his specials while his basic attacks have him using the plug for the most part.

I know somebody at Smashboards made a moveset, but as I haven't played anything but the first game, I couldn't make a full one, as there was probably more power-ups, etc.

Final Smash might be difficult, though.

Yeah that could be challenging.

Uhh...Giga-Robo comes down and wrecks everything?

Can you control Giga-Robo? Even if that happens, willing to bet it'll still be better than Brawl!Giga Bowser? tongue

Enough of that
I'm being a little factious, but the fact remains, one of the things that makes Chibi-Robo such a delight is the scale. You take away the transformation of an ordinary house into a massive kingdom, and you take away the soul of Chibi-Robo. It'd be like if Kraid were tiny.

I don't buy size is a legitimate reason to keep him out of Smash. He's in a fighting game. Not an adventure game(save one mode).

Now, I could see him maybe too peaceful for it, which is a reason why Sakurai doesn't include an Animal Crossing character is playable, though.

[up][up]That was Early-Installment Weirdness and you know it. He's been a titanic monstrosity in ever single other appearance, including Zero Mission.

[up]I'm saying something like: "Being small is one of Chibi's definitive characteristics. His actual size is something that's meant to impact us, much like exceptionally large bosses in other games."

Just a simple hero
Even after resizing does it's job, Chibi should still be the smallest fighter, if we talk of Chibi being in Smash realistically.

[up][up] To be strictly fair, saying "every other appearance" amounts to what, Super Metroid, and Zero Mission? And the beta of Prime, if you're being charitable?

I'm not saying I disagree with you. Just that quantity is not the best argument here.

So he'll be near Kirby size then. Maybe slightly smaller. He'd still be small.

And doesn't everybody fight big bosses in Adventure Mode(and Classic at the end, not counting the Giant fights) anyway?

The regular multiplayer really doesn't matter when it comes to size. He'd still fit in well enough in Adventure Mode, which is kind of where the story is.

Funny thing - I'm pretty sure Chibi-Robo would still be bigger than Olimar.

What Bad Wolf said. Although that might be the main Smash size. But they didn't make that consistent with Ridley's Smash sizes, so...

@nomuru: Yes. I'm pretty sure Chibi-Robo is bigger than Olimar in canon when you compare them to regular household objects. Wasn't something like a nickel or whatever in Pikmin freakin' gigantic compared to a burger which was fairly large in Chibi Robo?

Even evil kings need fiber in their diet.
Olimar is the size of a quarter.

Fair point.

I retract my previous statement, though I'll maintain that Rainbow seems like a better fit.

I haven't played Captain Rainbow, but he could be, who knows.

@Amom: Yeah, Chibi-Robo is definitely bigger. From what I remember, he around the size of maybe a GBA SP(unfolded) height-wise. Thinner, though.

Just awesome like that

And that can be all the excuse needed to put the child's bedroom from Smash 64 in as a stage! grin

Also, @Captain Rainbow theme song: EARGASM.
Insert witty and clever quip here.

Isn't the Pikmin world on a similar scale to the Chibi-Robo one? Because being so small didn't stop Olimar from being playable.

How tall is this Chibi Robo character you guys are talking about?

Behind you!
Solution: new game where Chibi Robo fights the Custom Robo bots, and Olimar, and all the other tiny characters. [up] Someone said about the size of an unfolded GBA SD?
