Hello, and welcome to another installment of Super Smash Sundays
! In these journal entries, I will give you all a taste every week of what I have planned for my dream game, Super Smash Bros. Melee: Masterpiece Edition. Without further ado, lets's go!
Character Highlight: SamusFirst Appearance: Metroid
I think I wanna try a special hybrid between Super Metroid
, Zero Mission
, and Prime 2SFX Clips:
for modernization sake, I'm going to stick with clips that have been used in both Brawl
and Smash 4
; maybe a few remixed SFX clips from the Metroid games
Samus: the greatest bounty hunter in her galaxy. Not only did her first game revolutionize shooter games, but she was the first ever female protagonist in the video game industry. Samus lived on a mining planet with her two parents, when they were all killed off by a Space Pirate raid led by the infamous Ridley. After being adopted by an avian race called the Chozo, Samus was subjected to their DNA, giving her amazing athletic abilities! The Chozo would train her over the course of years to become the galaxies solution to peace, fighting space pirates, and dealing with a deadly parasitic race called Metroids. Gifted with the advanced Power Suit (which she can materialize with her mind thanks to her Chozo DNA), Samus is prepared for any and all situations!
Samus has been one of the biggest threats in the Melee metagame, with her heavy weight, high K.O. power, and magnificent recovery! The only two big flaws she really has are her floatiness, and poor K.O. power in her up smash and forward aerial. I’m hoping to fix that latter flaw.
Specials:Notable Custom Specials:
Neutral: Charge Shot
Up: Screw Attack
Final Smash: (pending) Power Bomb (acts like a glorified Smart Bomb; covers more distance, and deals tons of more knockback)
Neutral 2: Rapid Fire (charges up quicker; fires more rapid shots the more it’s charged)
Neutral 3: Plasma Shot (goes through enemies, but not as powerful)
Side 2: Ice Missile (freezes enemies, but lacks knockback)
Side 3: Diffusion Missile (can’t fire homing missiles, but deals multiple hits and has a larger blast range)
Up Taunt: strikes a relaxed pose while pointing her arm cannon up
Side Taunt: faces the screen while showing off the arm canon’s mechanics
Down Taunt: kneels, and checks behind and in front of her with her arm cannon pointed
+ Metroid can now crawl! : D
+ with the new ability to crawl in Morph Ball mode, Samus now has a down forward tilt
o sprint is now more leaned forward like her sprint in Project M
+ knockback increased on her up smash, forward aerial, and Screw Attack
- (pending) due to my personal opinion of this exploit being a legitimate glitch, I’m thinking of removing Samus’ most unique trait from the original Melee; her Super Wavedash

*Entrances are a new thing I'm adding. Older installments will be updated to include entrance animations for their featured fighters.
Stage Highlight: Pokémon StadiumTheme: Pokémon
Here we have a nicely solid stage known far and wide by the competitive scene. This very stage is the perfect one for both Pokémon battles AND Smash battles. The stage starts out with a base platform with two mini platforms floating above. The battlefield and platforms will change every now and then, but there are no hazards in any of them, so it's acceptable in eligibility...roughly. My one plan is to HD-ify the Muk outta this stage; make it look almost like Pokémon Stadium 2!
No, Pokémon Stadium 2 is not in this game.My Music:

Trophy Highlight: AdelineFirst Appearance: Kirby 64: The Crystal ShardsTrophy Description: Adeline is a highly talented painter with a golden heart to boot! When she finds one of the Crsytal Shards, she is possessed by one of the Dark Matters hunting it, and Kirby had to rescue her! As thanks, she joins Kirby in his adventure to collect all the Crystal Shards and save Ripple Star. She helps him out by painting him Maxim Tomatoes and 1ups throughout stages; I wonder if those painted tomatoes taste any different...
...Y'know what? I feel I need to catch up in stages, so lemmie treat you with another stage highlight!
2nd Stage Highlight: BrinstarTheme: Metroid
A stage that's just as treacherous as it looks! With multiple small platforms, breakable terrain, and acid that rises and falls, there isn't much room for players in this heated stage of a dogfight! This has strangely been a returning stage since its debut, despite not many caring for it. What makes it so special in Sakurai's eyes...?My Music:
