Waluigi's Smash Ultimate Controversy...Daisy HATERS! You are not welcomed here!
I've been meaning to get this out of my chest for a while and it's time I'm going to talk about it. First, off I'm starting to realize how extremely intoxicating and overrated Waluigi is right now. I don't hate him but I do know he is very irrelevant. His fanbase is just disturbing as hell. I am targeting no one but if you are going to come bash at me with a bunch of childish caps I can easily report and block you big time because I'm fed up with it! It's no punishment to attack me at all.
First of all, I do feel sorry for the "good" Waluigi fans out there that aren't rude and obnoxious. So I'm not trying to disrespect all Waluigi fans.
But these toxic fans of Waluigi are actually this overly obsessed with him and act like a bunch of whiny brat kids that Waluigi should be in Smash only because he is NOT playable and only because just Mario, Luigi, and Wario and say Waluigi makes it incomplete without hi, Like they have bar
it goes into WAY more detail than I have. It's brilliant.
Yes, before anybody asks, I didn't actually hate him beforehand. I had more mixed feelings. In case anybody wants to know, this is why I thought that way.
He's a lazy idea for a partner for Wario. It could have been someone creative like Tatanga but no, it's just a character so obvious that a manga already made their own Waluigi, predating the official one. I can't describe it, it just seems like there was no creativity coming up with him.
Also, his personality isn't that distinct either. He's just a copy of Wario. They're both sneaky, a cheater, a sore loser, kind of trollish etc while not actually being evil. The only difference I saw was replacing Wario's brute strength and grossness with agility and roses
He can actually be genuinely funny. Both him and Wario. Him and Wario do have a funny chemistry and he can be funny by himself.
He isn't actually annoying despite others thinking so. I think there's kind of a charm to him that Charles Martinet brings to all of the characters he performs.
And ngl, the memes about him are quite funny... or at least they have been. Harmless and silly.
But now I'm not going to lie, I actually hate him now. I know I shouldn't let a fanbase affect my opinion of a character, but it sadly has. I hate Waluigi because of his obnoxious fanbase.
And it's all thanks to Smash Ultimate. I didn't mind people him wanting him for Smash games. I didn't mind people not being satisfied that he was just an assist trophy in past games. I even liked how some people tried to make Smash mods for him. I would have been satisfied having Waluigi as a playable character.
But now for some reason ever since I've seen Smash Ultimate announced, half of the comments I've seen have been nothing but bitching about the lack of Waluigi. I don't care if some of these people are joking or not, it's become really annoying and makes Nintendo's fanbase seem like spoilt brats. Can you not be happy that there's actually a game that doesn't leave out any single character in Smash history?
The people who wanted Ridley were actually sensible about it. He was memed, but he was also given legit reasons as to why he should be in Smash. Some who liked Ridley even accepted that he may never be in a Smash game. So even though I hardly know anything about Metroid, it was really satisfying to finally see him as a playable character and for many of his fans to get their way. And I get why Ridley was in such demand. Metroid didn't get much representation, only two characters, both of which were Samus. Plus from what I found out about him I can see why he's popular, he's really different from any other Nintendo villain.
What does Waluigi represent? Mario spinoffs? Well we now have Daisy for that. And yes, she is sadly just a Peach clone but that probably made her easier to programme. Why can't people just be happy that the Mario spinoffs got representation in general? And yes, Daisy's also considered a main series character but I'd say hardly since she's only appeared in two handheld Mario platformers.
But then I saw this shit. wearedaisy.wixsite.com/weareda…
This is crossing the line. This is absolute bullshit. I've even heard that some people are sending death threats because of the lack of Waluigi. This is pathetic...
So you know what? I really hope that Waluigi never becomes a playable character in Smash Bros. I hope he stays as a damn assist trophy as a constant reminder that he isn't playable. And I hope that since Sakurai knows about this shit, he'll never change his mind for Waluigi like he did for Ridley. I even hope that he stays in Mario spinoff limbo.
Please keep in mind that this isn't directed at all Waluigi fans. I have plenty of friends who are disappointed that he isn't playable and would like to see him have bigger roles. That's fine, I'm just expressing what I want.
