If they made a Square Enix smash brothers type clone, would you play it?

If so who would you want to be in it?

I'll share my own character picks soon after seeing some other people's choices.

    I've thought about this a lot trying to kill time.


    New School vs. Old School
    Sephiroth Cecil
    Cloud Kain
    Tifa Rydia
    Cid (ffvii) Golbez
    Squall Gilgamesh
    Auron Locke
    Yuna Sabin
    Ramza Edgar
    Delita Terra
    Yangus Erdrick

    Hidden: Hidden:
    Fei Crono
    Citan Frog
    Grapf (sp) Magus
    Bart Lucca

    That's a list. Of course, if I could I'd put everyone on there, especially more FFIV and VI characters, some IX characters and more Dragon Quest.
    thanks for reading

    Pretty good list, I agree with a lot of your choices.

    Here are my picks. It's really tough to decide since there are just way too many interesting
    characters to choose from... but, when it comes down to it I decided that diversity in fighting
    styles/looks out weigh popularity. ?I made a list of the "Square" side of Square Enix... since I
    haven't played an Enix game since Terranigma and Paladin's Quest! ?I thought maybe a true Enix
    fan could come up with a good Enix list... hmm... anyone out there? ?Anyway, this list is too
    long and needs shaving...

    BTW Miyosaka, those Knots of Rust are actually pretty helpful. Every time you use one the damage is added to the total attack damage of the Dark Matter item. So you might actually want to start using them!

    Loto (DQIII)
    Yangus (DQVIII)
    Dracolord( (DQ)
    Ragnar (DQIV)
    Torneko (DQIV)
    Necrosaro (DQIV)

    I think Slimes would make cool items like Mr. Saturn in SSBM.

    They could always start off with one Cid, and for some reason let you unlock alternate costumes for him, all of which are his other iterations from the series. Most of them wouldn't be very useful, but it seems like it would be sort of funny.

    I'd probably throw in Jessica from DQVIII. Also, I'd probably add one or more KH and FFXII character, like Ash, Vaan, and Axel.

    I'm a big smash brothers player, so I think I would have most of the summons act more as like the equivalence of pokeballs, like in the form of Materia or something.

    In terms of fighting styles.... I think the following are a must!
    Kain (FFIV)
    Shadow (FFVI)
    Vincent (FFVII)
    Zell (FFVIII)
    Beatrix (FFIX)
    Montblanc (FFTA/FFXII)
    Bart (Xenogears)
    Chrono (Chrono Trigger)

    From there, I'd just fill it out with a splattering of swordsmen (Cloud, Auron, Cecil), a few bad guys (I like the idea of Id, Kuja, Llednar) and then some of the lesser known fighters and generic fighters (I think that if this is a square enix melee, then one of the 4 warriors of light should make it). I don't know how I'd feel about the more omnipotent baddies as unlockables... just thinking about the match-up between Bart and Sephiroth makes me rock.gif . then again, if bart had "call gear" as a special ability, it would definately even the grounds.... maybe

    I'm liking the call gear ability. ?However, if bart could use it then the other xenogears characters could do the same. ?In the end it might unbalance things a bit as well.

    Not to play this game again, but Bart could probably take Sephiroth. Fei or Citan definitely could. What, Sephiroth's gonna drop a meteor on Bart? Bart's gonna slap him with his whip and punch him in the mouth. Done.

    Trust me, I'm no sephy fan boy (Sephy's got nothing on the likes of Kefka and Deus). My point was that using arch villians as playable characters calls several things in to question - Sephiroth is the final boss for a reason. You're supposed to need at least 3 characters in order to put him in his place. (lets not get into semantics like how its 1v1 in Advent Children). I think the only reason is worked with the likes of Ganondorf and Bowser were because you generally faced them one-on-one with Link or Mario. Plus, as you sort of put it, a lot of those arch villians have cheap moves (Sephiroth had Meteor, Kuja had Ultima, etc).

    Such villians shouldn't be left out entirely, but maybe some way to make them a little more on par with what the rest of the characters are capable of (such as giving you Sephiroth pre-Niebelheim - so half of his attacks are physical katana attacks, and half of his magic spells are just -aga equivalents).

    ...Or, you could let sephy keep his cheap move, and give everyone else a nice cheap move like what Brawl is doing (the previews showed the characters grabbing special orbs which activated a super attack). From there, you could have like, Bart gets a limited-time ride in his Gear, Cloud would get like Omnislash, Vivi would trance... not sure about characters from games that don't have those abilities. Maybe Montblanc calls a bunch of people from his clan in to fight along side of him...

    Speaking of uber-cheap moves, I was assuming all characters should have one.

    One of the reason why I included Palom and Porom in my list was because I thought they'd have a unique fighting style. ?Imagine this: you use both of them in battle at the same time and they'll have their own seperate life bars. ?Together they can perform a twin spell like Comet, or whatever it's called now in the GBA version. ?But, if one of them dies before the other, they can't use the twin spell. ?I thought that would be something different and interesting.

    Fighter from the first Final Fantasy. I sat down with my friend once and made a set of moves for him. Each one of the four B commands would change the fighting style or weapon, and using the same command would execute a special move (like, down-B for a two hander sword style, the down-B again for a Kirby-esque move). Impractical, maybe. But a man can dream.

    Maybe, I dunno. Maybe a Wanzer from one of the Front Missions? I guess it'd be a little one sided.

    I don't know how they would do this, but to see Zeromus fight Exdeath would be pretty cool! and I don't mean in their humanoid shape. No! They have to be in their amorphous H.R. Giger "final-boss" form and dish it out! That would be sweet!

    But yeah... you can't have a Square-Enix fighting game without Auron.
