Who's gonna be the analog for the Virtua Fighter characters? Nintendo doesn't even have a fighting series outside of Smash Bros. which is A) Unconventional as far as fighters go and B) Already a crossover in itself, and Joy Mecha Fight which is legally dead.
Tabuu. Problem solved.
So hey, I tweet sometimes. @e107combo is the man to follow.
The rival character thing its just an idea, Capcom is doing it in Tatsunoko Vs Capcom so I decided to give it a try (and thats also the reason of so many strange choices and absences in TvsC) If many of you support this, we can go this way, but this will lead to many obscure franchises being bumped up to fill rivalries and some popular choices being absent because there is no one from the other company to pair them. Here are some more ideas I had during the evening: Akira (virtua fighter) Vs Dude (Urban Champion) Pit Vs Nights EBA Vs Ulala Ness Vs Wonderboy Pokémon trainer (Pikachu included) Vs Mushiking ( www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/anime/mushiking/ ) Luigi Vs Tails
Barbara looks a LOT like a Samba de Amigo character ANYWAYS XD
And why must we knock Little Mac? I know Punch-Out isn't serious "fighting," but boxers are a staple of fighting games period. That would rock if it was Mac v. Akira.
And Pit would NOT be NiGHTS rival. It makes sense, but NiGHTS is better paired against somebody like Kirby. As for Pit, there's always Vyse, but also a TON nobody has been mentioning: -Aragon from Blazing Rangers, who would fight similar to a mash-up between Marth and Zelda -Nigel from Landstalker, which has a similar "spirit" to Kid Icarus in some respects. He could dual-wield elemental swords if they got really creative with it -Sir David from Light Crusader, who's pretty generic but a nice "European" style warrior--as opposed to all the Japanese stuff -Keil Fluge from Panzer Dragoon, who would fight on the back of his dragon and would be totally epic -Glenn, or the unnamed hero, from the Space Harrier series. The whole flying thing can be played up in a good way to compliment Pit (or Saki, for that matter, with the guns) -Erik VI from Sword of Vermilion, who, again, would be a mash-up between Zelda and Marth -Prince Ali from Beyond Oasis, who offers a Persian/Arabic contrast to Pit's Hellenistic style. The only catch here is that he may or may not be a Sega property. The developer of Beyond Oasis, Ancient, worked on games like Brawl, however, so they are definitely "in the door."
Damn... Sega has just as much stuff as Nintendo, huh?
Thanks Flip for remembering the OBVIOUS Nintendo Fighting game and character, Little Mac from Punch Out, he definitely goes against Akira. Now let me remember you guys that we only got 40 characters, so lets keep the one hit wonders out unless they bring something to the table or is a important franchise that we for some reason forgot to mention (like Phanzer dragoon)
This tread has reminded me a few things:
-Sega has more generic looking though guys on their lines than Nintendo (Akira (Virtua Fighter) Axel (streets of Rage) Ryo Hazuki ( Shenmue ) we cant include all of them even if their franchises are some of Sega most famous.
-Sega has many more One hit wonders than Nintendo, but many of those where not developed by Sega, lets just use one hit wonders to fill rivalries when absolutely necessary.
Once we have covered each company most famous franchises, its ok to bring some obscure characters into the table.
Updated the Rivarities list with some of the sugestions and moved it to the first post.
I think that's supposed to be Blazing Heroes, flip. XD
And for the record, I'd say that if the game was made by a developer formerly known as Sega-AM#, then it's OK. The rest of those Sega games seem a bit on the fence to me. Is Fry around? Maybe he can help us clarify...
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.
Sept 27, 2020 12:59:22 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!
Nov 12, 2020 12:12:00 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
