If you’re reading this, I hope you have a good day.
How do you know that I don't have an emotional bond to the piranha plant? *Hugs Piranha Plant Body Pillow* it's ok honey they didn't mean it
@A pet named Steve, I love Piranha Plant, and Petey too
@A pet named Steve, I just imagine the body pillow being 20 feet long with just the green stem going down for 19 feet of it
@A pet named Steve, Now I want a Piranha Plant body pillow!
@A pet named Steve, if you have this actual body pillow I demand you show us all proof
@A pet named Steve, how do you know I don’t have an emotional bond to my dildo? “Hugs the SR4 dildo bat” it’s ok honey, they didn’t mean it.
@A pet named Steve, Look, whatever bond you have with Piranha Plant is yours to have, but please, like a told a player in a recent D&D game of mine, keep it out of sight of the kids.
@A pet named Steve, I'm personally more concerned that they seem to think playing a walking dildo is wrong. Seriously, who wouldn't want to play that?
Actually my favorite Mario characters are the bad guys such as Boos and Piranha Plants, but kay.
@Catbug, Boos are pretty cool. I always kinda liked Shy Guys too.
@Catbug, Boos have personality. Piranha Plants aren't even characters, they're obstacles
@Davrial, That's not entirely correct, normal Boos have really no personality either, they were just obstacles. This can be said about many iconic mario villains, shy guys, bombombs, goombas, koopas, etc. But all of them in one game or another had special case characters such as King Boo or Petey Piranha. Also Paper Mario was a major game for me and that game gave personalities to almost all the traditional enemies. This included the Pirahnas as well, one of my favorites being the boss Lava Piranha.
@Catbug, Paper Mario gave character to most enemies. Except piranha plants. Know why? Because they are PLANTS, not CHARACTERS. Petey Piranha IS a character, one that many people like. No one cares about just a plain generic plant
@Davrial, The Piranhas were given personality, their introduction was one of characters that liked to pick on others, they even had speaking lines in Paper Mario that supported this, the Lava Pirahna for example had a superiority complex and makes fun of Mario throughout the entire battle.
@Catbug, A boss is not the same as a generic enemy dude. That's the problem. It's just some generic piranha plant. Goombas as a whole have personality, koopas have personality, hammer Bros have personality, piranha plants DONT. There's just CERTAIN SPECIFIC bosses that HAPPEN to be piranha plants and have personality.
@Davrial, Yes, and I said the basic Piranhas in their initial dialog and other pieces of dialog act as bullies, which are not bosses, just basic Piranha plants.
@The Puppet Man, My first experience with any of those Mario Universe games was Yoshi's Story on the N64. I got a healthy dose of Shy Guys and have loved them since. I also really loved the Shy Guy toybox level in Paper Mario.
Walking Dildo? Hell yeah! Griffith for Smash!
The real question here is "should you play a character based on your boner or should you play them for that characters mechanixs?"
It’s not about the emotional attachment though, it’s about how fun playing a character is to you. I don’t care about Ridley at all but his move set works for me and he’s a giant fire breathing dragon alien thing
I want to play him for the novelty. He looks interesting
@Fuggles, He’s alright. Got some good smash moves, and his up and down specials are pretty great. However, his neutral special is a pretty useless vertical attack, and his side special is some poison gas cloud that deals decent damage, but no knockback. They don’t make sense, in my opinion.
@Berntley, that spike ball is sick for edge guarding, though it’s super hard to land. I’ve only just started dialing in the timing on that one
@Luhnkhead, I don’t even know what you mean, so that should tell you how pro I am.
@Berntley, ha I feel you
Edge guard= keeping someone who is not on the stage off the stage.
You can sit on the edge and throw the spike ball sideways towards the opponent. It’s killer
@Luhnkhead, oh, you can throw it sideways? Nice
Look you may not like sir dildo but I have watched all the videos he has been in, I’ve read all the descriptions and know of all the different versions of him through the years. Don’t you dare tell me that I have no connection to sir dildo.
Minus8 makes me disagree.
@akgaimer, ah, I see you're a gentleman of culture as well!
Or maybe people main characters for their movesets and dynamics and not because they have a personal connection to the character?
You mean I’m not supposed to use the plant as a walking dildo?..well then...
Yeah that’s exactly why the character was created. Sakurai knew very well nobody was going to play the character out of emotional attachment. That’s like getting upset with someone for wearing a watch.
You know he made Piranha Plant playable just to spite everyone it is glorious
If it were Petey, I would be excited, but this is just a nameless one of thousands
Or it could just be a fun character to play exclusively for the Schadenfreude
Well I do want to unlock all the achievements from playing all modes with each character
I have made it my main because I love being a helicopter lol
I wanted ShyGuy, cuz I like him the most, but okay...
