During the most recent Nintendo Direct, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai broke the seal on utterly random characters being added to the game’s roster. While the Duck Hunt dog and Mr. Game & Watch were definitely weird choices in years past, the Direct’s one-two punch of Incineroar and Piranha Plant seemed to bring out-there Smash Bros. additions to a new level. So, with the door now fully open for strange, random, or outrageous fighters being added to Smash, what such Zelda character would you add to the roster?
There is 30 years worth of WTF Zelda characters to choose from, as every game in the series is ripe with random NPC’s and minor enemies that would be suitably stupid in Smash Ultimate. While the likes of Error, Tingle, and the Happy Mask Salesman are super strange characters that I wouldn’t mind seeing throw fists against the rest of the Nintendo universe, I have to go with the Cucco as the best out-there addition to the Smash Bros. roster. Just imaging taking to the battlefield with our feathery friend, flapping and pecking your way to victory. The Cucco even has a perfect Final Smash, as it could call forth a tidal wave of chicken death on opponents.
What WTF Zelda character do you think could in the Smash Bros. series? Be just like Sakurai and suggest your out-there fighters in the comments below!
