I know these guys aren't really well known, but I personally believe they deserve recognition somewhere. Where better than a independently-developed game that already has crazy mashups of obscure characters?

Anyway, my idea is to add a handful of the characters from the Ranma 1/2 series of fighting games to SSBC. If you weren't aware, Street Fighter is actually a rip-off of Ranma 1/2 Chounai Gekitou-hen. I mean, when you translate it, it's read as Neighborhood Combat. Apparently, when they translated the game, they used the same engine, but replaced the characters and stages. They even kept the same specials, though. Yep, that's right. Ryu's uppercut was originally Ranma's.

There already exists sprite sheets suitable for all of the characters included in the sequel on spritedatabase.net. There isn't enough variety for a full smash moveset, but it shouldn't be too terribly difficult for a good spriter to modify what's there to add the rest of the moves necessary for a full set.

It would even work out great to have Ranma-chan as an alt for Ranma. It would be better to have a Zelda-Style transformation, but I gather that is difficult to do, considering you haven't done it already? I don't know. (I've been itching to see how you handle her. Hoping to be Magical-Heeling my enemies soon.)

I have never heard of the Ranma franchise. You also need a poll.

Ranma was originally a manga/anime so he's automatically not allowed

inb4 "But Goku is in the game"

He's the exception, not the rule

Ranma 1/2 is one of Rumiko Takahashi's works. The Manga ran from 1987 to 1996 in Japan, and the anime was on the air until 1992 in Japan and as late as '03 in the U.S.

If you don't know who Rumiko Takahashi is, think InuYasha. She did that, too. You can find a lot of information about her works on Furinkan.com. Furinkan is, coincidentally, the name of the school the cast of Ranma 1/2 goes to.

Gosh, I sound like I'm advertising.

I'm sorry there isn't a poll. I had no idea I had to have one for a simple suggestion/idea. It isn't anywhere in the General Guidelines. Nor is it anywhere in the FAQ's as far as I can tell. Nor is there a sticky in the suggestion sub-forum. In fact, I can't find anywhere that says it's necessary.

But by all means, please explain what I need. I don't know if you noticed, but after this, my post count will officially hit a whopping two.

Aaaaaanyway, yeah. Street Fighter isn't a lie, but it's not an original idea. It was copied and tweaked

EDIT: Apparently, this topic got moved to the poll section. I had put it in the general suggestion forum.

EDIT: So how are Pokémon allowed? And how did Jack Frost make it onto the official candidate list? SMT started out as a VISUAL NOVEL (aka MANGA) called Digital Devil Story. There is obviously more than one exception.

Pokémon was a game before it was anything else. Ranma started as a manga.

Jack Frost? I was not involved in his discussion so I don't know crap about him. He looks stupid either way.

I just think that it's nice to pay homage to characters that started an entire genre of video games.

It didn't start the fighting game genre.

Those types of games made it pretty popular, Street Fighter much moreso than the Ranma Game, but yeah.

-First fighting game was Sega's Heavyweight Champ in 1976
-First martial arts fighting game was Data East's Karate Champ in 1984.

-Ramna started as a manga, not a video game. This makes Ramna ineligible by Crusade rules (Goku was decided upon as the sole exception with only one other non-gaming origin character allowed for Suggestion; the winning result was Disney's Mickey Mouse (Wreck-It Ralph's origin is technically a video game due to real arcade cabinets of Fix-It Felix Jr. being made before the movie's release).

And finally, the MAIN topic-crushing point:

-Capcom's Street Fighter came out in 1987. The first Ramna fighting game came out in 1992.
The game you're thinking of that "copied" Ramna was Irem's Street Combat, which was to the Ramna game as Super Mario Bros. 2/USA is to Doki Doki Panic and Tetris Attack is to Panel de Pon.

Alright, I'll give this poll 1 more day before closing.

So if anyone has an argument that would save this candidate, please share.

I'm wondering why he wasn't auto-declined like other 4th parties

Unless I'm remembering wrong
