I love the history/references of Spirit Battles but there are some that I do not know/understand. SSBWiki has most of them figured out of the character inspirations, but any idea as what the minion characters are referencing with these Spirit Battles?:
0027 Baby Peach - Minion: Mario (Probably Mario himself or Baby Mario?) 0522 Zoroark - Minion: Lucario (fake legendary dogs from the Pokemon/Zoroark movie?) 1087 Nico Fire - Minion: Fox, Sonic (Slot Cars? I feel like these might be specific to maybe special slot cars?) 1148 Satoru - Minion: Mewtwo, Ridley, Bowser 1216 Dr. Lobe - Minion: Kirby 1221 Satoru Amatsubo - Minion: Mega Man 1248 Ando Kensaku - Minion: Mr. Game & Watch 1254 Toy Poodle - Ally: Duck Hunt 1271 Allen - Minion: King K. Rool, Ridley

Hi Gilder. Nice thread.
Nico Flare - Fox, Sonic
I get a similar impression as you; Sonic is associated with speed. Not sure about Fox. Nico Flare has a rival called Iceman but the only similarities I gather are Fox/their hair being a similar colour and one of them wearing blue like Sonic.
Satoru - Minion: Mewtwo, Ridley, Bowser
Perhaps these reference monsters in general or specific ones called from the cards, with Mewtwo as the Master card.

Since I haven’t played SSBU yet (blasphemous, I know,) I only have YouTube to go on for this existing, but in an episode of the Completionist Jirard mentioned that there’s a spirit battle with Ness’ father, played by an invisible Snake, since you never see Ness’ father. I’ll further add that Snake bears more than a passing resemblance to Flint (Lucas’ father) and that Snake quite notably communicates with characters in Metal Gear games via codec, not dissimilar to Ness’ father communicating with Ness exclusively (in-game) via telephone.
New Spirit event with new spirits from DAEMON X MACHINA are this weekend! I must admit that I know nothing about the game (Played the demo for about an hour and didn't care for it). But hopefully someone knows the references within the spirit battles:
1348 Kloster (Grief) - Dark Samus, Samus (x2) 1349 Bullet Walker (Brigadier General) - R.O.B. (x3) with green, red and blue alts 1350 High Line (Guns Empress) - Ridley
I'm assuming the minions are actually the mechs themselves, but what are the mechs?
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.

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.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
