"Ultimate" Character "Updates" of the Month #10: Hooked on the Brothers

METAL MARIO


Source series: Mario

First appearance: Super Mario 64 (1996) [First Smash appearance: SSB64 (1999)]


STATS:

Weight class - Very heavy

Falling class - Very fast

Running speed - Slow

Jump height - Medium

Character class - Bruiser


MOVESET:

--Literally just Mario's moveset.


HOME COURSES: Meta Crystal, Battlefield, New Donk City


TAUNT: Super Mushroom


SPECIAL TRAITS/TRIVIA:

--Mario first gained the ability to become metal in Super Mario 64, & has appeared as a standalone metal character in spinoff titles. (In the DS remake of SM64, however, it's Wario rather than Mario who can become metal.)

--Classic Mode miniboss in SSB64 (for all characters) & Ultimate (for Bowser). Adventure Mode miniboss in Melee (though he can be a random encounter in Classic as well).

--Eventually can be jonied by....



METAL LUIGI


Source series: Mario

First appearance: Super Smash Bros. Melee (2001)


UNLOCK: Begin Luigi's unlock criteria in Melee Adventure Mode.


STATS:

Weight class - Very heavy

Falling class - Very fast

Running speed - Slow

Jump height - Medium-high

Character class - Bruiser


MOVESET:

--Literally just Luigi's moveset.


HOME COURSES: Battlefield


TAUNT: Dirt Kick


SPECIAL TRAITS/TRIVIA:

--There has never been an actual Mario game where Luigi can turn metal.

--Once unlocked, Metal Luigi will always appear with Metal Mario in Adventure Mode (& he can also be a random encounter in Classic).

--Programmed to only use Green Missile for recovery, so the instant he's below ledge-level with no more jumps, he's doomed.


That's the last Smash character. Holy crap.


And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
