Now's The Time For More 'Costumes' In Smash

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the Smash game on the most powerful Nintendo console of all time (so far), and thanks to that we’ll be getting all the fighters that have ever fought, on (almost) all the stages that have ever... staged?

Anyway, why not taking advantage of the more powerful hardware and get all the fighters some skins that reflect some aspect of their history? We know it was possible with Bowser Jr and the Koopalings alternate skins (header image) and we know we’re getting Mario Maker and Wedding Mario, after all...

No wedding dress, tho.

So, here are my suggestions for some alternate costumes, in no particular order:

Mario

Sunshine’s Shirt & Sunglasses, Luigi Outfit (Imagine a 2 Marios vs. 2 Luigis) and Odyssey’s Swimsuit Outfit (Why not? Shulk already got one)

Donkey Kong

Funky Kong from the recently released Tropical Freeze, and Donkey Kong with Donkey Kong Jr.’s pajamas.

Link

Embrace the Breath of the Wildness with the Zora Armor, the Ancient Set, the Vai clothes, and the no-clothes (I blame Shulk again)

Samus

With the Varia being the “standard”, add the ‘regular’ Power Suit, the Fusion suit and the Light Suit

Pikachu

Detective Pikachu. Bonus point if they can lower the pitch of the “voice” of regular Pikachu so it sounds like... well, detective Pikachu.

Luigi

A Mario Outfit (same reasons for Luigi’s outfit for Mario up there), and a Mr. L outfit (I don’t know who is he, but looks similar enough to Luigi)

Jigglypuff

This Giant Jigglypuff from the Anime

Mega Man

I wanted ProtoMan (including Helmet and Scarf) and Bass, but they appear on his Final Smash already, so Helmetless MegaMan from MegaMan 2

Sheik

The simple outfit of OoT, the Hyrule Warriors outfit, and ones inspired on Impa’s from OoT and Skyward Sword

Captain Falcon

A Helmetless Captain Falcon

Peach

They have it easy with this one. Simply do the outfits from Oddissey.

Zelda

I don’t care what Sakurai said, just look at these and tell me they’re not Smash-worthy.

Lucina

The exact costume Marth has, but with Lucina’s head, and short-haired Lucina with that butterfly-y mask thingy.

Ganondorf

Bring back, Twilight’s Princess’ Ganondorf, and inlcude the Wind Waker’s Ganondorf. Maybe Demise.

Snake

Young Stake (from Twin Snakes), Big Boss (Naked Snake after MGS3), Old Snake.

Advertisement

Squirtle

Sunglasses. Simple.

Advertisement

Sonic

Retro Sonic or whatever it’s called (Do not Google “Chubby Sonyc”. It’s four your own good!)

Zero Suit Samus

The NES to SNES Zero Suits would make a nice addition, along the Justin Bailey, but I’m more interested on Young Samus from Other M.

Robin

Having the option of getting the exact appearance of the Robin one used in th 3DS game would be awesome.

Shulk

I’ve been told that he has lots of options in the Xenoblade Chronicles game, other than the “regular” and the “swimsuit” ones, so, where are these?

Advertisement

Ryu

Street Fighter V’s Bearded and Shirtless Ryu, and Street Fighter’s I American Ryu, A.K.A. Blonde Ryu, A.K.A. “Ken”

Advertisement

Cloud

The blocky 3D model from the PS era, both in their regular and Crossdressing variant (that Google doesn’t seem to have pictures of)

Advertisement

Rosalina & Luma

Rosalina’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Mario Tennis Aces’ outfits. Pretty much her only appearances, right?

Olimar

Louie (From Pikmn 2), and these three (Alph, Brittany and Charlie) from Pikmin 3

Toon Link

His Spirit Tracks’ Engineer clothes, and Outset Island clothes are a must, but dude... there is literally a game about link’s clothes

Advertisement

Mewtwo, Pac-Man, Roy, Mr. Game & Watch, Meta Knight, Pit, Dark Pit, Wario, Young Link, Ike, Ivysaur, Charizard, Diddy Kong, Lucas, King Dedede, Lucario, R.O.B., Wolf, Villager, Wii FitTrainer, Little Mac, Greninja, Mii Brawler, Mii Swordfighter, Mii Gunner, Fox, Ness, Palutena, Corrin, Bayonetta, Inkling, Ridley, Ice Climbers, Dr. Mario, Pichu, Falco, Daisy, Bowser, Yoshi, Kirby, Marth, Bowser Jr. and Duck Hunt are ok as they are now.

*Phew!* That ended a lot imagier that I expected at first. What do you think? Would you like more options for the ones I couldn’t think of?
