A lot of the Smash Bros. roster might've leaked ahead of time, but that didn't stop anyone from getting hyped on the secret characters found last night via Japanese streams.

It makes sense: while there are a few clones and returning faces, some inclusions in the upcoming Smash game are damned amazing. The internet has reacted to that.

If you don't want to be spoiled on the secret characters in Smash Bros, please stop reading now!

To recap/contextualize these reactions...the characters that people have found so far are Duck Hunt Dog, Dr. Mario, Wario, Falco, Ness, Bowser Jr., Mr. Game and Watch, Dark Pit, Ganondorf, and Rob and Jigglypuff. There might still be more hidden in the game. There might not, judging from some screenshots floating around.

Regardless, reactions largely fell into the following categories:

  • OMG DUCK HUNT DOG
  • Fuck you, Dark Pit
  • Why are there so many clones?
  • Where is [insert favorite character here]?
  • Thank you, based Sakurai

Here's what the internet had to say about the Smash Bros. secret characters:

Fuck you, Dark Pit

PSA: Dark Pit doesn't have any new moves, so he's basically an alt costume. He probably took very little time to make. So don't be upset at him on the basis that he took a slot from the character you wanted (like my precious Lucas, or beloved Icies... Q_Q).

I still think he's a really stupid character to add, but he didn't take the same amount of time as, say, little mac or anyone like that.

You can basically think of it this way - Pit has 16 costumes to choose from. 8 of them make the announcer say "Dark Pit!"

In that way, it's kinda similar to how Olimar can turn into Alph with some of his costumes, and the announcer says "Alph!" Except Dark Pit is his own character, and Alph's part of Olimar.

Just wanted to clear that up. <3
