Which games did he voice Lloyd in? That could be relevant. Which version of Lloyd chosen is a thing too. Could be classic TOS, instead of later cameos. So having the original actor is important too, if possible.

Nonetheless, yeah, people do try to tie it to Smash too often, but it's not that surprising. Smash is that massive of a franchise and popularity, and it has some of the biggest discussions revolving around character speculation as is. No other crossover can be considered nearly as big, with Marvel VS Capcom being as close to a second as possible.

He was Lloyd in the original Symphonia, but all other appearances (including the sequel) used the other guy.

[down] They kept the same people for Colette and Presea, IIRC, but they replaced everyone else.

Every Symphonia VA got changed (except maybe one) for non-union actors so I'd be surprised if they made the effort to get Menville back considering Nintendo also tends to not use union actors.

Ah, then yeah, it's probably not related to Smash then. Thanks for the info.

And considering the franchise, a Joker. And a "super"Hero. :P

...You could find other parallels for the franchise, but that's all I find worth noting. Plus, I can't think of anyone who fits Cyborg remotely well.

[up] I'd say Vampires are closer to "Manbat" in comparison.

Then again, really, Link would be more of the equivalent to Batman in abilities. A constant variety of items to work with, as well as learning tons of stuff and training hard. Plus, essentially playing the hero all the time. Lastly, the Boomerang is a notable item, just like the Batarang. Otherwise, easy Meta Knight joke.

[up][up] That too.

[up][up][up] I don't think Snake has any actual robotics in his body, otherwise he'd be a great option. Maybe not a strict parallel though. More closer to Meta Knight in this case. Otherwise, this is what I have;

  • Starfire is Palutena. They're both otherworldly characters who don't really do jokes that Mortals easily would get, or Earthers in the former's case. Besides that, immense power, and are often tied to Light in some ways.
  • Raven to Bayonetta. They're both demon-related and have dark abilities. As well as can get past the borders of what is "appropriate" in a kid's work.
  • Corrin for Beast Boy. Can transform into an animal forms via attacks. We don't have a much better option to begin with, as none of them transform at all. Now, if Shantae was in, she'd be a decent option for this. A good joke one is Ganondorf, cause of turning into Beast Ganon.

I'm not counting other various DC characters for the purpose of my thoughts. I'm sure I could think of more given time.

[up] I had that thought, but I feel Dark Samus being a possessed suit of armor mayyyyyy be closer. Other than that, Snake could come close too. Similar enough power-set, but also is a literal clone(well, the main Solid Snake, as the one in Smash is a combination of designs), which can be stretched to mean artificial parts/body. If only we had an actual cyborg in Smash...

Maybe Pokemon Trainer as Beast Boy? Beast Boy doesn't usually fight in his human form.

That isn't too bad of a parallel either~

Especially with the immense variety of 3 different types of creatures with unique abilities. In fact, it mostly covers Land, Sea, and Air(Charizard is Flying type, after all), but Fire by design as well. ...Fire's just not relevant to real-life animals. But to be fair, none of the Pokemon are similar to your real life animal either. Charizard may be the closest, if it was a different animal and all.

Beast Boy isn't actually limited by animals from real-life Earth. He's transformed into any number of alien creatures from DC's universe, and it's been later established that if he can just imagine a creature in enough realistic detail, he can become that creature, up to and including dragons.

Charizard, yeah, fits well. But Squirtle and Ivysaur don't look like your atypical fantasy creatures either. They're a lot more specific. Something from Monster Hunter might be a bit more "generally a fantasy creature" for instance.

Either way, still a pretty good choice for the concept~

Actually, there was a sort of inter-episode gag on WB or something where various characters were interviewed, and someone asked Beast Boy "Can you turn into a Pokemon?" and he responded "Ok, just this once" and became a green Pikachu.
