    i dont know what everyone else thinks about this topic but there are alot of spoiler videos on the internet showing final smashes...simply youtube search ssbb final smashes to find them. and not only do these final smashes seem largely unbalanced between characters (for example Link, Marth have almost guarentee'd ko's from them whereas Sonic and diddy kong's look utterly useless aside from being invincible for a time) but these are also moves that will not be used in any tourney event so personally i dont understand why there is such a hype over these moves.

    because it's an awesome addition to the game. and if they werent included in the game you'd be completely trashing sakurai for just adding characters to melee. what will please you people?

    PS sonic and diddy are fast right? so they can get lots of hits in before they get a smash ball to up percentage then when they use a FS they can KO. if all FS did the same damage, there would be no strategy. what would be the point of even using different characters?

    EDIT: besides, most of us are concerned with having FUN with the game, more so than participating in tourneys. not too many people are going to say "i cant wait for this to come out, so i can join a tournament"

    i didnt mean they'd do the same damage just that they'd all be equally useful. and ya they can get alot of hits... if the opponent is unaware of side stepping. and to be honest i think they SHOULD be catering a little more to the tourney player since in my opinion anyways alot of the hype for the game comes from those players... but thats just my opinion

    Mysims:

    ROB's fsa rocks! that final smash builds up % on the opponet, and ROB can still use his other attacks while he's doing his fsa. he gets the opponet at 100-120 % and just use a smash attack. its probably one of the best fsas

    not sure if you have friends to play with but its a really competitive game which is the reason its so popular. final smashes make it not as fun for really competitive matches because its a random factor.

    though, final smashes should be an option just like any other items are so it will all be good.

    thank you lol not sure about you but we play item games in melee once out of every... fifty to a hundred times i'd guess lol gameplay is number 12 and 3 in smash for me...everything else is secondary. who do you main melee wise and who do you want to main in brawl Sovieto?

    wow... are u wrong...

    #1. u cant do other attacks when he's doing his smash attack.
    #2. every time he hits u with his eyes, it takes off 12% which is very low
    #3. you can dodge it encredably easily. when he moves (using his FSA) he goes as slow as a snail

    u think thats better than marios? i dont

    OK This is one of the things that make me mad :/..

    OK it's the spirit of battle even if your losing and your still enjoying the game, That's when it'll be the day when everything is even-

    No offence but you seam like a sore loser, Because think of it this way- What if you had the smash ball?..

    But to get to the real point- All characters have they're own moves and that's what makes them uniqe- If you REALLY think about it hard enough Course' They're unbalanced... But it depends on who's using them really, I mean nobody is going to be the king of brawl :/

    Marth and Links are really hard to aim, in the videos you see the characters are barely ever moving and it takes skill to use them. In sonics and diddys its easier to rack up some damage

    personally it lets me know which characters that aren't cool for example, zelda sucks, it just shoot straight and can be easily dogded, and donkey kong, thats just horrible to pu in.

    Just confirming that yes, you can turn off 'Final Smash Balls' and 'Assist Trophies' just like any other item.

    The Dojo said that diddy's FSA also allows him to shoot peanuts while flying. But no one who made any vids of him on youtube figure that out yet.

    Also Pikachu,diddy,and sonic all have the same FSA.

    Link's FSA is a guaranteed ko from the looks of it. it seems to automatically go after the closest enemy.

    Zelda's is a 1 hit kill. so if you're on the same platform and it gets shot at you you are dead. If you notice the animation, the character being shot at doesn't seem to move out of the way, perhaps they are stuck, or the fact that it's a "light" arrow moving at "light" speed, suppose they're trying to give you the allusion of that making it impossible to jump away?

    ROB's FSA we know nothing about. So to say it sucks is unfair considering we know nothing about how it works or should be used, and those demonstrating it on youtube don't seem to have any clue either.

    All final smashes can be deadly if used in the right conditions. Some require a precise set up to maximize their damage potential.

    take peach for example. in the youtube vids all the players do is heal, they never try and take out their opponents while they're asleep.

    So to say this character sucks or that one sucks is unfair considering that the japanese players who have the game and post on youtube, know just as little about it as we do, so there are no pros yet to show you the true power of any of the characters.

    Exactly. I knew I liked this guy!

    What I mean is like, it's harmless either way, because gamers who wanna have fun like the new addition, and tourney players can turn it off. What I don't get is what tourney players WANT in order to justify a NEW GAME but still play it in a tournament. Know what I mean?

    they want the final smashes out because if a player of lesser skill uses let's say kirby.. and spends the majority of the match floating around avoiding damage and copying everyone's moves, but doing little if any combat.

    Then the smash ball appears. the others are ata reasonably high %. kirby gets the smash ball, goes into cook kirby mode, and after all three players are launched, they all get KO'd. Kirby wins as a result f one FSA. and he never even really fought anyone.

    sounds like an odd scenario? Well the tournament hungry players fear it like the plague, since there are plenty of them out there who would do something similar to what I described, given the opportunity.

    Basically final smashes could allow a noob to come in and KS everyone in the game. That is why it is feared.

    I personally like them seeing as how diverse they are, and since they're in the game why not use them? I mean plenty of the items are just as strong if not stronger so why all the hatred of FSA?

    there's a difference from having unique characters to having an unbalanced 'item'. and i'm not saying their over hyped because my specific character that i like has an underpowered FSA.... i could care less i'll rarely be using it. it was a general topic...
