I liked GB better when he was a hidden boss.

^I kinda liked him being Bowser's final smash, it seemed like a nice series callback.

The idea was cool but:
-GB was one of the weaker transformation FSes
-Having an edgy version of Bowser as a secret boss is just cool

Maybe I'm just being nostalgic for when I was too scrubby to beat him. I didn't even unlock all of Melee's stages until just before Brawl released, lol.

^I mean, I almost never got the sound test in Smash 64; luckily, my brother managed to beat Kirby's Board the Platforms.
