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: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
