What. This is the dumbest, dumbest thing.

I agree. I almost want to hate it, but it's just too dumb not to love.

#5 Posted by stalefishies (330 posts) -

I think this has polarised people between those that think this is the worst, dumbest thing ever and those that think this is the greatest, dumbest thing ever. It's definitely pretty dumb, that's for sure.

But god damn if I don't think it's amazing.

I actually wish she had stayed a secret character until I had the game in my hands and got the "Challenger Approaching" screen. Maybe that would have been too much.

#7 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -

Yeah, people are taking this news really hard/seriously. She's a hilarious inclusion.

The Wii Fit Trainer's final move is called "Wii Fit".

Hilarious.

#9 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3019 posts) -

This has kinda been a weird turn of events. I was real skeptical, but after seeing her in all of her terrifying, mannequin-like glory, I'm on board. She's scary.

I hate this, but I love this.

I want this game to be so dumb and over the top.

#12 Posted by kishinfoulux (2255 posts) -

Like I said in the other topic. Fuck this game.

Dude...does that mean you can rush coil recoverly? You...pull a Yoshi?

#15 Edited by ImmortalSaiyan (4676 posts) -

This is so dumb, I love it. I need this game right now.

#16 Posted by Wrighteous86 (3745 posts) -

A bit counter-intuitive to the whole "Nintendo mascot" theme, but they tend to break that rule for nostalgia, humor, or classic third-party rivals. This works for the humor angle, I suppose. AH-PROVED!

I just want a Duck Hunt stage. Is that too much to ask?

#17 Edited by huser (1042 posts) -

@fluxwavez: Frankly think it's a combo of anti Nintendo folks looking for low lying fruit, younger folks still confusing serious with maturity, and people caught up in excitement who wanted a certain character but oh no they took a spot with a joke character.

#18 Posted by Epidehl (285 posts) -

I hope all that dialogue in the gameplay footage is there when you use it, it sells it as a joke way better.

As someone who's really excited about this game but wasn't sure who else they could add, I totally approve.

Someone told me "the Wii Fit girl will be in Smash Bros". Having never played it, I thought he was talking about her :

#21 Edited by Bizzama (53 posts) -

This is absolutely amazing. I love it when Nintendo does dumb, ridiculous, hilarious shit like this

#22 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

So this might make those "no items, final destination, fox only" guys to chill?... man I hope there's a bunch of dumb characters ... not a Mii though that would be lame.

#23 Edited by medacris (643 posts) -

Right as I was lamenting that Animal Crossing Protagonist wasn't female to balance out the gender ratio...

I kinda like that she's a martial artist-type character. It's hilarious and awesome at the same time.

It's like they thought: 'What character has nobody mentioned? Lets put that into the game!'

#25 Posted by Hailinel (23891 posts) -

@angeln7: No, because they'll still insist on Fox only.

#26 Edited by ArbitraryWater (11476 posts) -

This is the dumbest, and yet greatest possible character pick I could've imagined. Somehow, I'm interested in a new Smash Bros game.

What if I said Falco?

This is the stupidest and best thing ever

#29 Posted by ManMadeGod (1552 posts) -

love it

#30 Posted by Chibithor (574 posts) -

Yeah, this is pretty dumb. I didn't think they could surprise me with new Smash characters, but there you go. Fantastic

People complaining about it is the really dumb thing though. Especially when it's about how their terrible character requests aren't getting in because they're 'wasting slots'. I saw one guy talking about how this is ruining the 'true Nintendo Universe' or something.

#31 Posted by MocBucket62 (1151 posts) -

I have to say, Nintendo is doing a good job revealing the characters. While putting in highly demanded characters like Megaman, we also get some bizarre selections such as the Villager and the Wii Fit Trainer. This is Sonic Racing Transformed PC edition levels of character insanity!

#32 Posted by Jayzilla (2555 posts) -

I got to see her moves list...She is EFFIN' OP!!!!

#33 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

Still disappointed that the Balance Board is not a playable character.

#34 Posted by cmblasko (1122 posts) -

I love out-of-left-field reveals, so I am delighted by this. And here I was worried that a new Smash Bros roster would disappoint me.

Don't worry, there's still Wuhu Island

#36 Posted by huser (1042 posts) -

It seems pretty positive here. I'm wondering what the average age is on the posters vs some of the other blog comment threads that seem more split on opinion.

#37 Posted by Saethir (353 posts) -

The way it's bouncing around behind her at the end I really hope that one of her moves is just to beat people senseless with it.

#38 Edited by betterboulder (190 posts) -

The best thing they could have done for invigoration of the series was go as bonkers as a game like this is should go. And this is that kind of bonkers they went and I'm loving every minute.

#39 Edited by Hunter5024 (5542 posts) -

My friend is super outraged at this news. I think it's kind of funny. They're really running out of properties to pull from, and a lot of the characters have been repeats from the same game. So they're either going to have to double down on third parties or do dumb stuff like this.

#40 Posted by MEATBALL (3066 posts) -

Śuch an incredible inclusion. Anyone who thinks it's stupid (in a bad way) needs to re-evaluate how they think about the series.

Wuhu Island for next playable character, tia.

#41 Posted by BoG (5181 posts) -

GUYS MEGA MAN.

At first, when I heard about Fit Girl, I was disgusted. But it IS pretty hilarious. I love how Sakurai basically says in that one video that no one wanted this character in the game. Sakurai is the world's #1 troll.

#42 Edited by RustySanderke (117 posts) -

Her attacks are snapping into yoga positions. How can anyone not like that?

#43 Posted by DeF (4799 posts) -

Best trailer ever. Love it so much lol.

#44 Posted by HaltIamReptar (2029 posts) -

I think the only kind of person who would have a legitimate reason to be upset about this is the kind of person who takes SSB seriously, and they are not a legitimate kind of person so it all comes full circle

#45 Posted by Zeik (2223 posts) -

@haltiamreptar: More like a person who takes it seriously in the wrong way. There are people who take it seriously on a competitive level, which is cool for them, but something like this shouldn't have any affect on that part of it.

#46 Edited by TheHT (10884 posts) -

She actually looks like tons of fun. Villager looks fun too.

Mega-Man not so much, but I like how his animations look like the 8-bit ones.

Crowd reaction video to seeing Wii Fit Trainer reveal:

#48 Posted by project343 (2812 posts) -

Like I said in the other topic. Fuck this game.

Because of the splendid cast of dead-serious characters that previous games had? (you know, like 'Toon Link', Game & Watch, and ROB...)

Or the Subspace Emissary mode that was a dramatic tour de force and easily the Citizen Kane, Ben-Hur, Schindler's List, and The Seventh Seal of video game storytelling?

It's so dumb you gotta love it. I love the offbeat characters they throw in there.
