Smash Bros. Pic of the Day: A Roster Candidate Knocked Out

Waluigi Lends His Racket at as Assist Trophy

Sorry, Waluigi fans. It looks like The Goblin in Purple will be an Assist Trophy. With the Mario Roster currently boasting 5 people (not to mention characters like Yoshi and Wario who are totally Mario characters, but have spun off into their own franchises) it really didn’t make sense for Waluigi to come in and play ball. I think this was always his destiny, and at least it’s safe to say he looks great in HD!

I hope fans aren’t too bummed out, but remember: The Assist Trophy is a way to see your favorite characters come to life in Smash, even if they’re not full fighters. I couldn’t have been happier to see Jill fromĀ Drill Dozer inĀ Brawl, even if she was just an Assist. I didn’t think I’d even get that.

What do you think about Assist Trophies? Happy to see Waluigi return his racketing ways as one? Comments and stuff go below!
