He would have been such a fun, unique 11/10 pick, especially compared to the anime human shill characters we wound up getting.

      His other appearance was a cameo that was cut out of the remake since Alpha Dream was too broke to pay Square Enix a second time.

      Fucker didn't even show up in the basketball Mario game Square Enix made or any of the Fortune Street crossovers (the latter of which even had Mario RPG music).

    nah fawful would've been a better choice for a mario RPGs character

      So tired of Genofags and i like Geno. Move on, he was cool but shallow.

      Fawful fans are obnoxious but Fawful absolutely deserves it. He's the only Mario RPG character who deserves to be in Mario kart and the only reoccurring villain outside of Bowser

        Mallow got actual character development and would deserve the spot far more than the exposition puppet.

        I am entirely convinced that the geno cult is built entirely from zoomers following a handful of ecelebs.

        I know two people who both really wanted geno and both of them were born years after the SNES came out.

        Geno would have been one of the best additions to Smash if we didn’t get Sora in his place. The fact that we got Disney cooperating for a character in Smash over using a puppet from the SNES game with wide fan appeal is just insane.

        Filename is still true though. If the roles were reversed Geno would be on the banner with the rest of the cast while Sora would get all the shitposts and “lol didn’t get in” memes.

    Too bad genofags were so fucking loud and autistic that pretty much every other group came out to shit on them and celebrated when he didn't get in.

    Why does everybody cry and moan about Geno, but nobody gives a shit about this guy?

      Smithy's cool but him showing up last minute certainly didn't help any lasting impressions

      I remember for the longest time thinking Smithy was the sword until spoiling myself on the strategy guide.

    Square-Enix owns him and the guy that designed him isn't even working in Mario games.

    Miyamoto probably sees him as the Poochie the Rappin' Dog of the Mario franchise, seemed cool at the time but probably has a contract stating he'll never come back again.

      It's literally cause of those series of flash animations from the Brawl era where Geno nukes Japan.

    Bro, Smash is done for. Move on.

    And if you really can't let go, use that effort to make a mod of him on RoA or something.

    Take this with a huge grain of salt, but I remember somewhere some credible Japanese leaker talked about why Geno will never make it in. It's because they see lots of demand for him but virtually none for a Super Mario RPG remake or sequel, so they believe that people are asking for him just because other people are. Square is also afraid that people would just see him as a Smash character and not a character from their RPGs.

    Even if he was just bullshitting, the first point is probably true anyway because some ex-NOA employees talked about Mother 3 the same way.

    yeah any scrimblo pics would have been better than anime swordman #14 shilling its new game. Fuck smash, glad I dropped this garbage when they started introducing OP DLC characters.
