Super Smash Bros. Melee

Super Smash Bros. Melee

US Release Date: December 03, 2001
Japan Release Date: November 21, 2001
Europe Release Date: May 24, 2002

Game Developer: HAL Laboratory

Franchise: Nintendo
In the Japanese version, Fox, Falco, and Mewtwo have some additional dialogue for taunts and victory quotes that were removed from the English versions. However, these lines (and Jigglypuff's Japanese voice) can be heard in NTSC releases by setting the game language to Japanese.

Fox and Falco are voiced by Shinobu Satouchi and Hisao Egawa in battle in all versions of the game. They speak using their English voices only for the Corneria Smash Taunt and for a cutscene in Adventure Mode. Jigglypuff is the only player character who was completely dubbed over.

This is the only Smash Bros. appearance of Roy and Pichu, who were removed from the series in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Mewtwo and Dr. Mario were absent from Brawl but returned in the Wii U and 3DS installments, while Young Link was essentially reskinned and renamed as Toon Link.

I kicked so much ass with this game. Even some of the BEST people I've EVER seen play this game had trouble beating me! lol

I can't believe this game is ten years old. Even though I like Brawl a little better, I get MAJOR nostalgia whenever I play Melee or listen to its music. Good freakin' times.

I think he's separate for 2 reasons:
1) He's a non-playable boss character (a tough one at that).
2) His background image is the Super Smash Bros emblem, not the Mushroom Kingdom symbol like Bowser's.

Plus if we go by your logic, then Dr. Mario is the same as Mario, despite the fact Dr. Mario is actually heavier than Mario and has different move quirks (his Super Jump Punch actually packs more of a wallop than Mario's and Dr. Mario shoots pills instead of fireballs.

@SM Scorx In the game, then yeah, they've got different movesets, so with the definition of "character" being "fighter" or "playable character", they're different characters. But, in the definition of character as in "person", they are the same person. Dr. Mario is separate from Mario because he's a different character (meaning different moves). But he's also the same as Mario because they are the same character (meaning "person"). Make sense?

Why is there a picture of Giga Bowser there instead of Bowser? They are both separate characters.

@SM Scorx Giga Bowser's just a powered-up version of Bowser, not a separate individual. I didn't think it'd make a difference.
