    Metroid has only one character in the Smash Bros. series, and Ridley seems the only great fit, other than the other dudes from Corruption, like Ghor.

    Yay or nay?

    Well, Ridley is a giant space dragon. I don't think it would work to well. And he's already in it; albeit unplayable.

    Charizard is much larger in the show than in the game. The same thing would happen to Ridley.

    Maybe not. Ridley's too good to be playable. It's best if he stays a boss.

    Dark Samus would be the best candidate for another Metroid character. Besides, Zero Suit Samus is her own character as well...although you can't select her at the menu screen directly =P.

    Rundas would be perfect for a new SB game

    It'd be cool to play as a Metroid who went around sucking out the other characters brains.

    Ridley is in Brawl =P Just as a boss xD

    I think the Hunters from Metroid Prime: Hunters [DS] would fit in better than Ridley though.

    I thought that too as I fought him in Corruption, but he's not a mainstay for the series, so he wouldn't work that great for SSB. It would be like if Count Bleck was in SSB.

    If they want to include more characters from the Metroid universe, they should turn Quadraxis into a stage.

    Ridley is an awful idea for a playable character--I'm sorry. I would love for Ridley to be more involved, but he's a boss for a reason (he's a giant dragon thing, for Jeebus's sake, fellas).

    Exactly. Making him become smaller to become playable is lame. He's so great because he's giant and powerful. He would indeed be a terrible character to be playable. Besides, people who aren't satisfied can pretend Charizard is Ridley =P.

    Metroid needs more playable characters than Samus. Ridley is the only other mainstay of the series. Rundas would be cool, but he's not recognizable.

    Besides, if Ridley was playable in the game, you would all be like, "OMG teh great Sakurai is teh greatest IMO LOL."

    How many moves would Ridley actually have? I worry that he would be like Sonic (all he does is uh... run and roll into a ball).

    I've always maintained that Ridley as a PC is a TERRIBLE idea. He would just look so strange and out of proportion; he wouldn't fit in at all no matter how they scaled him.

    Ridley and one of the hunters would be amazing additions.

    By the way, the argument that Ridley is too big is very silly in my opinion. Just look at Captain Olimar, if the game respected the original size of the characters thatn Olimar would not even ve visible on screen. Nintendo could easily reduce Rildley and put him on the game.

    dark samus if anything would just end up an alternate costume like dark link. imo there is no way ridley could ever fit in the smash universe. though you could probs add someone in as an assist trophy

    I agree. Probably Dark Samus would be a better choice as another representative from the Metroid series...or even a space pirate.

    Ridley is an awesome character, but a playable character in SSB?  Naaah, I can't see it happening, it would be too awkward.

    I think Dark Samous would end up being a Samus clone with Phazon-powered attacks so I would prefer Ridley or Rundas.

    I wanted Ridley to be in it, but I (at first) didnt know that he was a giant.

    Heres hoping they have a mini ridley in a Metroid game, then maybe mini ridley could be in the next Smash Bros game

    what about Rundas/Ghor/Gandrayda?  Maybe even a Space Pirate?

    I personally want Sylux.  It would be sweet.
