Precisely why I don't agree with your logic. I don't think Sakurai would ever scale down a character... not more than a foot or so, anyways.
Scale up, on the other hand... ... ...

In regards to Ridley. A valid thing to point out in anti Ridley arguments, that Sakurai himself seems to think it wouldn't work. It doesn't necessarily apply to Other M's Ridley, as said game was released in 2010.Originally Posted by 2008 Sakurai
I don't know about you guys, but I can see that thing understandably being "a little slow" on the battlefield. Moreso that the skinnier Ridley we're all used to. We can all assume that speed wasn't the only issue Sakurai saw in skinny Ridley, whether or not he'd look silly was undoubtedly another.
"Skinny" Ridley does seem like he'd be harder to scale down without making him look silly. Other M's "buff" Ridley, however, I feel could look natural even if scaled down.
Maybe Sakurai genuinely doesn't intend to heavily scale down any character, but we can't read his mind.
