Character of the Month #67: Varia-ty Hour

Post by CaptHayfever » Sun Apr 02, 2017 4:32 pm


Source games: Metroid series
First appearance: Metroid (1986)

Weight class - Heavy
Falling class - Very slow
Running speed - Medium-slow
Jump height - Medium-high
Capt class - Gunner

B - Charge Shot (source: Metroid)
Dense Charge Shot, Melee Charge Shot
Side B - Missile (source: Metroid)
Relentless Missile, Turbo Missile
Up B - Screw Attack (source: Metroid)
Screw Rush, Apex Screw Attack
Down B - Bomb (source: Metroid)
Slip Bomb, Mega Bomb
Final Smash - Zero Laser (source: Brawl)

SSB64 - Planet Zebes
Melee - Brinstar, Brinstar Depths
Brawl - Norfair, Brinstar

Up - Salute
Side - Cannon Flare
Down - Spot Check

--Samus's side smash now includes a small explosive aspect. It can also be tilted up or down slightly, but that isn't new.
--Her dash attack now involves the Speed Booster.
--The Turbo Missile actually functions much like Snake's Rocket Launcher.
--Since this Samus & ZSS are now separate characters, Zero Laser no longer makes the power armor fall off (neither does the taunt combo either).
--Blah blah the baby blah.

That completes all of our newly-separated characters. Next month, we're gonna start going back & looking at how the rest of the returning roster has changed in Smash 4. However, it's not gonna take another 3 years, because they'll be clustered into groups.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

i'm not sure how to feel about samus's new nair because on one hand it's not near as useful as the sex kick she used to have but on the other hand it looks pretty cool

I'm lucky enough to be able to frequently play against one of the best Samus players in the world (and arguably THE best) and I 100% promise that samus is SUPER slept on in the current meta. I really hope to see more people pick her up and push her to her limits.
