Tips for Buying EarthBound

July 12th, 2012 | Polls, Smash Bros.

I got a deluge of e-mails yesterday and today about a poll posted at VGTribune.com. Basically, it sounds like they intend to give their poll results to the people developing the next Smash Bros. game over in Japan.

Anyway, some EarthBound/MOTHER characters are in the running, so if you’re interested, you can vote here.

Vote people! VOTE VOTE VOTE! I’d actually be happier with claus or kumatora, but Flint is better than nothing am I right?! 😀

LucasPSI said on Jul. 12, 2012

Wait. Flint is in 13th place? That’s actually great considering there’s A poll just like this in japan, and more people know about Mother 3 over there!Go flint!

gwalms said on Jul. 12, 2012

When did Professor Layton, Pandora’s Tower, or The Last Story become first-party Nintendo properties? huh? Also.. F Waluigi

Ninten=ness said on Jul. 12, 2012

Okay Phoenix wright i can understand, as he’s not the most famous, but no Megaman???? And flint norris will sweep the competition in japan.

Ness PK Rocks said on Jul. 12, 2012

I won’t be satisfied until Ninten is a playable character!!! Then, SSB can have all 3 corners of the Mother rainbow!

Dakota said on Jul. 12, 2012

As much as we all want Ninten, I don’t think it will happen. There are just to many other characters that would promotote the series more. Porky, Masked Man, etc. Also he looks to much like Ness as it is…

PKSoul said on Jul. 12, 2012

I voted for Kumatora, Claus in Masked Man form, Duster, and MegaMan.

Ness PK Rocks said on Jul. 12, 2012

I personnally can’t see porky as a character. He would just be too overpowered. That’s why he was a boss in brawl.

Ness PK Rocks said on Jul. 12, 2012

Claus should be like Zelda and have 2 forms.

PKEmeraldian said on Jul. 12, 2012

I want Kumatora, the Masked Man [who should be able to transform into you-know-who], Jeff and Ninten. I’d honestly love to have more characters, but I think that Flint’ll be the only one to make it in. *extremely hopeful here*

LakituAl said on Jul. 12, 2012

I think I once saw an Ike mod that transformed him into Flint. It was fabulous. So yes, I think he’d fit right in. I’d also like Duster, just for the sake of it. A guy can dream, huh?

(Also, how about items? Melee gave us Mr. Saturn, and Brawl gave us the Franklin Badge. What should be next? Slime generator? Scary Mask? Maybe the SUPORMA?)

? said on Jul. 12, 2012

I don’t think Flint is a good choice. I mean, what should his moves be?

Evan said on Jul. 12, 2012

^Kicking ass and taking names.

PKSoul, alt comp. said on Jul. 12, 2012

The if Claus got two forms, I’d like it better as a Samus type thing, using a Final Smash to change.

? said on Jul. 12, 2012

I would much rather have SSB represent some new franchises in its roster than just having more characters from franchises I’ve already seen. So yeah I’m gonna go with Issac and Balloon Fighter.

Ness1985 said on Jul. 12, 2012

Simea(Crystalis)

It’s sad nobody will probably pick him because they don’t know who he is. He’s from one of the best NES games, an action-RPG made by SNK.

Zinco said on Jul. 13, 2012

Shulk is number one? Really?

Zinco said on Jul. 13, 2012

Well, I guess that could be cool.

Mill said on Jul. 13, 2012

Aw man. Prince Sable’s not too well known unfortunately. 🙁

Disciple of Midna said on Jul. 13, 2012

How did I miss this until now? -__-
Eh, whatever. Flint’s still in the running, so that’s good. Also, Ghirahim! He will make the game fabulous!

Puck Your Mother said on Jul. 13, 2012

My, my, my…..

80% of these characters aren’t even nintendo. Well, at least Ike and Marth are staying <3

2Sang said on Jul. 13, 2012

It’s definitely not a poll made by someone who actually likes videogames, it’s just to get website traffic.
Honestly, who would have put Flint, who played a fairly minor role over characters such as Ninten, Pokey, or any of the other main characters.

Ninten=ness said on Jul. 13, 2012

There’s way to many third party characters(though i wouldn’t mind a capcom character…) Ninten or the masked man should be playable, but they shouldn’t spoil the claus is the masked man.

Matthew McGhee said on Jul. 14, 2012

For those of you that want Ninten in the next game, just hope that he is an appearance variant of Ness (all they need to do is remove the backpack) and the masked man could be a variant of Lucas. There you go. You just saved two character slots.
P.S. For those of you who don’t know, in SSBB if you change Lucas’s color, he can look like Claus.

Kuranes said on Jul. 14, 2012

Most of these characters are awful. I can’t believe the ones that are winning. Where is Travis Touchdown? Nice job America. Making choices that affect nothing since forever.

Matthew McGhee said on Jul. 14, 2012

Well said Kuranes. Theres like a million people requesting some pokemon called Dunsparce. Look it up it’s stupid. I’m sure it’s just a bunch of meme garbage.

Matthew McGhee said on Jul. 14, 2012

Oh yeah, and why are so many people requesting things from the recent Sonic games? Last I checked, any Sonic games after the Genesis sucked.

PsiPaula4 said on Jul. 15, 2012

I have promoted that poll because I think Flint deserves more votes, but I think this poll is incredibly biased. I never played Skyward Sword, but isn’t Ghirahim a one time villain who like, is never going to appear again? N would be another Pokemon trainer. Not only that, but I think Pokemon was very abundantly represented in Brawl. Even more than Mario. Seriously, look at all its stickers and trophies! We do not need more Pokemon characters. As for Shulk… is he even a Nintendo character? Something that also is stupid about this poll is there’s only 1 character per series. Why!? Because of that, there is no way Ninten will make it on that poll since Flint is already there. And while I think it would be cool having Flint there, I want someone like Ninten or Masked Man there more.

Ness1985 said on Jul. 15, 2012

If they were smart, they’d put Masked Man instead of Flint. Oh and Skyward Sword was a disappointment IMO

God Robert's Cousin said on Jul. 17, 2012

I half agree with Ness1985.

Skyward Sword wasn’t that bad, but I would rather that they keep out any characters from that game aside from the main two of Zelda and Link. One-time appearances in a massive franchise like Zelda shouldn’t be enough to get a spot in Smash Bros., meaning characters like Vaati, Skull Kid, Toon Zelda, or for god’s sake even Tingle are more eligible than Ghirahim.

However, Masked Man would be a much better choice than Flint. Being a big fish in a small pond, or rather an essential character to the story of Mother 3, as well as having more he can do besides hit things hard (which frankly we already have Captain Falcon and Snake for), the Masked Man would contribute more to the roster than Flint could. A Mother villain, a mostly non-PSI user, and a key character to the end of the trilogy, Masked Man would be the perfect new Earthbound series character.

Herobrine said on Jul. 19, 2012

Giygas ftw.

Hawk EB said on Jul. 22, 2012

Flint,Flint,Flint!!! Come on vote for Flint.
Ps: Giygas wood make a good boss

Salsa said on Jul. 24, 2012

OH GOD WORSE and jigglypuff was a kirby rip off ok not so much but still rip off even pichu was better ike was an awsome change on fire emblem roster cuz we hated roy but one thing Lucas sucked too he was just an ness clone unless they change his moves and final smash and put PK Love now that original but noooooo it had to be like ness just learning most of attack from girls and stand there like an idiot and use the girls or poo move like it his original PSI and Lucas trying to look cool like Ness by being a clone!!!!!! but most of girls still use him cuz they think he cute and some boy use him cuz he his favorite main character of the series he my favorite too but he was ness clone and TOM NOOK ON SMASH 4?!?!? oh please that would be just stupid they wouldnt know how his final smash will be……..well they wouldnt know what flint final smash would be too but that guy havent played video games a lot duster could been on flint place even mr.saturn could taken nook place(nook is more useless why?cuz mr.saturn told us the info about mother 3 on gba and that was useful

Herobrine said on Jul. 27, 2012

^ Come again now?

Anonymous said on Jul. 29, 2012

Flint’s a minor character whose role in the plot ends 2-3 hours into the game. I suppose he’s better than nothing, but he shouldn’t have been the Mother character on the poll.

Claus has potential, but the developers have been lazy with characters who resemble or have similar moves to other characters. If Ganon can be a clone of Captain Falcon, Claus, who has PSI and closely resembles Ness/Lucas, will be another Ness clone.

Duster has the most potential. He has brute strength, blinding speed, and unique tools. He has no PSI, so he can’t be a Ness clone. He’s a major character in every chapter of the game (except Chapter 6, which is under 3 minutes long), so his appearance would be justified.

However, I have a feeling that Nintendo will cut Lucas and ignore any potential newcomers from Mother. If we’re lucky, we’ll get 1 new stage, 2-5 new songs, and trophies of Rope Snake/Ultimate Chimera/any characters from the new stage.

Spidey501 said on Jul. 30, 2012

Well the thing is with Claus, you could just make him the masked man instead ^

He could have different moves than Ness but more similar to Lucas, he could move and maybe kick and use normal attacks like Lucas rather than Ness(they are twins after all) but his PSI could be different. B side could be his OHKO PK Thunder, he takes out the lightning rod and points it in the direction he faces and shoots lightning from it that does alot of damage, like maybe 25%. B down could be that he uses PSI Magnet(i mean what else is there to use?) B up could be that his wings pop out and he flys(kinda like Pit) and he could be a character that could glide. And B (just standing using B) can be that he fires his gun(like Falco and Fox only its stronger, i mean in M3 it does more damage than i figure their guns would do to Lucas and Co.). As for his smash attacks(not normal attacks that you do by just pressing the A button), side smash could be he swings his sword, down smash could be that he swings with his sword to knock people off their feet, and up smash could be just like Lucas’s where he uses PK Love/Needle Pull. When he’s in the air and he uses neutral Mid air attack he can spin the way he’s facing and have his sword in front of him so he’s doing a spinning swing, side mid air attack he can do a PSI charged punch(like how Lucas does a PSI charged kick in midair) down mid air could be like he zooms to the ground but raises his sword and swings it down while he’s falling, up mid air could be could be like Lucas’s where he hits his head against an enemy.
Running side attack would be a running PSI charged punch, walking side attack could be he does a PSI slash like Lucas, crouching down could be that he does multiple kicks like Ness and holding up while standing still could be he does the same thing that Ness does but PSI charges them instead.

I think ive gone over all of the possible moves that Claus could do as the masked man. I think he would be like Lucas in some ways, but be unique and different in others. I dont know what he could do for taunts though and he could fly jump multiple times like meta knight.

P.S. Lol i just thought that what if you use Lucas’s Claus variant vs the Masked Man, that would be awesome that Claus is literally fighting his dark side.

Anonymous said on Aug. 6, 2012

Probably not gonna get it. MELEE FTW!!!!! But Flint would be nice from the Mother series and then Hector from Fire Emblem. Those are the only additions I would want added from the current Brawl roster.

Anonymous said on Dec. 27, 2013

I would LOVE to see giygas as a boss. Having an incomprehensible boss would be a huge challenge and a lot of fun. But I know it would never happen.

for a visual of what it would possibly look like:
