Fine then, Ridley tries to kill Lucas's parent but fails.

Just awesome like that
And Ivysaur is?
I would actually say so, yes, because Pokemon characters tend to have many humanlike characteristics in the way they act. Not to mention its more humanlike (well, Animeqsue, but you get the point) eyes and expressions. And it's far more cartoony than Ridley, thus can more easily blend into the game more seamlessly. Ridley, meanwhile, looks and acts like a giant flying lizard monster.
Insert witty and clever quip here.

Legendary Outlaw? ...Forget it.
However, Ridley is at least mostly bipedal, whereas Ivysaur is not, and can't be.

Plus, I still don't see how downsizing him to the his Melee appearance would be bad. He looked perfectly fine that way. He may be slightly bigger than Charizard, but that just means he's easier to hit. In return, he has some fairly good range with his Tail too.

That, and I don't see any better Metroid rep besides him. Many decent choices, but he's the ultimate main villain overall. Or atleast the one that appears the most. Almost like Bowser territory, in a sense. Or maybe Ganon.

We are so not having this conversation again.

WE ARE ARGUING REALISM VS CARTOONY IN A GAME WITH SONIC THE HEDGEHOG BEATING UP SOLID SNAKE.

EDIT: The CAPS stay. I cannot be happy without my CAPS.

Exactly, Scardoll. Anything can fit, unless apparently it's too violent.(Knives, Guns with regular Bullets) Or maybe it could mean realistic violence, but a lot of the characters in Brawl do look a bit more realistic than plain cartoony. Except the "Animal" characters. The humans look barely less realistic than Snake anyway.

[up] Your original message was fine. ...Could be less in caps, though.

I don't quite remember Ridley being in Melee in any capacity...

He was in the opening cutscene fighting Samus.

What Scardoll said. He wasn't that much bigger. Maybe a foot taller at best.

He's actually quite small in that appearance, and at that size, would work perfectly. Even if that means it'd have to be Meta-Ridley, which isn't that ultimately bad. Being part metal gives access to extra moves.

(after watching the opening for the first time in years) Huh. Well, how about that.

This also just made me realize how much better the opening in Melee was than Brawl. Don't get me wrong, I personally prefer Brawl, but Melee's intro just gets me so pumped to play. And it has that awesome theme music.

Ridley at that size only looks good up close. With the camera perspective in SSB, he wouldn't exactly have the same effect if he was at that size.

He can be slightly bigger than his Melee intro appearance. No rule that Bowser has to be the largest character. Or whoever is largest.

[up]Ridley in Melee looks taller than Bowser...but we can't really tell since they're not seen near each other at all.

eep
Ridley has a tendency to hunch up his limbs on the ground, especially in the 2D games. I think that might actually help keep his size profile at Bowser-ish.
Stop staring

So I was thinking. If Capcom isn't stupid and decides to include Mega Man who would they use? Classic seems like the obvious choice but I can't shake the feeling most fans would prefer X or Zero.

 12347 Nap 1100, Thu, 8th Nov '12 7:00:08 PM Relationship Status: Dancing with myself
X is the most popular by a long shot, so I'd think it would be a close race between him and Classic.

Hakunon's Strange Quest
I think X would just barely win out in having more diverse moves.

He got the Z-Saber like twice! Remember that? ...Anyone?

It was cool.

What happened to the "first" Z-Saber after X6 anyway? Well, it's the one he gives to Zero in Zero but yeah.

Which special would be the Z-saber though? Neutral is mega buster, up would probably be shoryuken, and side would be dash. He could use down for that but it wouldn't fit IMO.

 12350 Otherarrow, Thu, 8th Nov '12 8:27:34 PM from the Moon Cell Relationship Status: Showing feelings of an almost human nature
Hakunon's Strange Quest
Even though it originated as one of X's easter egg moves, the Shoryuken is more associated with Zero nowadays. (I think he gets a variant in just about every game since his first fully playable appearance in X4)

Of course, there is no reason why he can't use the Z-Saber in a Shoryuken motion. Double reference! (not to mention it'd be more visually appealing and it would help distinguish it from similar attacks, at least IMO)

On the other hand, then it would be identical to Zero's Shoryuken slashes. Darn it.
