Nitpicks with Mega Man in Super Smash Bros

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 12, 2013, 3:25 AM
Disclaimer: THIS IS A JOKE. These are not serious problems I have with Mega Man being in Super Smash Bros. I just find it fun to nitpick XD



1. Mega Man doesn't change colour when he uses different weapons.

2. Mega Man shouldn't be able to aim Hard Knuckle straight down.

3. Leaf Shield shouldn't travel with Mega Man. The moment he moves in any horizontal fashion, that baby should go flying.

4. Spark Shock doesn't work that way.

5. Flame Blast doesn't work that way, either.

6. It seems Mega Man's internal monitor uses Keiji Inafune's artwork for all the robot masters. Why not use the Higurashi artwork for robot masters from Mega Man 1-6? They look much better.

7. Why does Mega Man have Top Spin? Hasn't he learnt that that's one of the most useless weapons EVER?!

8. Seems like only Rush is around to help Mega Man. What about Beat? Or Eddie? Or Tango?

9. Since when could Mega Man crouch?

10. Yellow Devil doesn't enter the room like that.

Ehh, I get what you're going for here, but I don't think it's really funny. Just saying something is intended as a joke doesn't really necessarily make it humorous. Given as it is though that this IS intended as a joke, I'm assuming you know the reason all of these things are implemented as such.

Also, Keiji Inafune's classic artwork is more recognizable. >3> If they used the updated artwork for the silhouettes, you wouldn't be able to tell who they were as immediately. Dunno about you, but I got quite the nostalgia boner off of seeing those silhouettes, especially since I wasn't expecting Megaman to have the Robot Master powers, even if he DID get in.

Okay, 'joke' isn't really the right word. More like it's just a tongue-in-cheek jab at how they haven't done it right, or whatever.

Which makes me think that you actually ARE a little bit serious about these, given that. Why stop there, then? Why not complain about the fact that the Metal Blade has a delay on it before firing, and doesn't move as quickly as MM2 etc. etc.?

It's just that I'm overwhelmed with happiness that Mega Man has finally returned and doesn't suck, thus I could look over errors like these... But for some reason, I felt the need to be 'that guy' and pick apart the trailer I saw, but only the more obvious things. And actually, I could probably defend the delay on the Metal Blade: The player needs time to aim it after hitting the button, whereas in Mega Man 2, the fire button would always shoot it the direction you were holding. And the speed? Come on, that Flame Sword looks OP as it is, let's make it fair for others...

And if you want, I can find more to nitpick. Example: When Mega Man uses both busters, he doesn't just need to vent it out, it's much more serious than that. The last time he did this was in Super Adventure Rockman, and that time he almost killed himself.

Haha. I'm glad you have the sense to overlook the so-called 'errors', seeing as most of them are in the interest of adapting him to the game (as is the case with pretty much every other character in this game ever). xD So yeah, your defense of the Metal Blade could probably be applied to most of the other things you were nitpicking in there. x3 That was the point I was making, fufufu. >3>

I'm also very glad that they decided to bring him in, and keep him so very faithful to his original representation. :D I nerded everywhere when I saw the classic jump/hurt poses, and that they actually added his little death-splosion. Loving little touches like that make me more than willing to overlook the inaccuracies that I know are just to adapt him to the game.

Yeah, I've come to realise that most of Mega Man's arsenal that made it into this game are projectiles, so adding a spin to each of them would probably keep the game fair XD
And indeed, I love all the homages they're paying to him =P

Ah yes, signs of being a true MegaMan fan. At least he's in the game! xD

I do agree on the nitpicks, but it's been a little bit since I played the Classic games (Spent way too much time on X)
