There is constant discussion at the SmashBoards about Impa replacing Sheik in SSB4. One guy won't shut up about it. Mad

So, I want your imput. Do you want Sheik to stay, or do you want Impa to replace her?

I find this to be an objectively terrible idea.

Especially the notion that Sheik is no longer relevant. As I said in chat, Sheik is not only recognized as a character, but as a pop culture icon. It's not a bad guess that more non-gamers recognize everyone's favorite tranny Zelda over Impa.

If anything Impa should effect Sheik's Design if we're going for a Skyward Sword look on the Zelda franchise. But Impa shouldn't entirely replace Sheik.

Ridiculous idea.

Zelda=Shiek
Shiek=Zelda
Impa=Sheikah
Impa=/=Shiek
Impa=/=Zelda

Zelda is Shiek, Impa is a Sheikah, Impa is not Shiek, Impa is not Zelda. Whoever "That guy who keep going on about it" is, he clearly does not understand LoZ lore.



If anything Impa should be standalone.

This guy's idea was that they would work by swapping out as a tag team, as opposed to a transformation.

I'd be all for it if Impa was in her CD-i incarnation

Ah, I have noticed the support of Impa through SmashWorldForum & Youtube. And I think I know who your talking about GY as far as who is strongly suggesting that idea, that being that Diddy Kong guy from SWF.

But yea, I think its a bad idea.

I can understand that Impa has been around the series for sometime, but if Impa is so important to the series then why are they suggesting it NOW when she appears in the most recent game? And the biggest argument they go for it is that she has been relevant to the series for sometime while Sheik has not.

Sheik not being relevant is completely false. Sure she hasn't appeared in the Zelda games for sometime, but she is still relevant. Sheik has been 1/5 of the Zelda reps in the Smash series through Melee & Brawl, which is a 11 year period. Not to mention that she was in OoT, which came out a year before the first smash giving 3 more years of her existance. Adding to a total of 14 years of Sheik still being a notable name in the Zelda & Smash series.

Plus, taking Sheik away in place for a character that will play a similar style is going to effect the fanbase that matters the most, which is the Smash fans. Not all Zelda fans play Smash, yet all Smash fans know who Sheik is. Taking her out is only pulling a "Mewtwo Not Existing In Brawl" decision, which we know upset many Smash fans.

In conclusion, Smash fans who think that Impa should replace Sheik obviously don't know how a series should be represented in Smash. The main influence of the decision of Impa seems more based on relevancy & recurrence, which should not be a deciding factor in certain cases.

Sheik is more important than Impa when it comes to outside the series due to seniority in Smash Bros, so why take that away? Not to mention that Sheik is much more popular than Impa to the general population of the gaming community.

That was an LOL moment right there for me XD

But anyways, looks like a high majority agrees that Sheik shouldn't be replaced. Someone should probably make a rant video of why Impa is a bad choice. lol

EDIT:

Oh wow guys, look at this
