Forums: Index Brawl Talk Why Do People Underestimate Falcon?

If you've ever been to the Smashboards, you'll know that they place him low in character rankings and on this match-up chart I've seen. All I want to know is... WHY? How could they hate on FALCONE PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWNCH?! It defies all logic! However, in all seriousness, I believe they've taken his nerfings way too seriously. My friend, Zmario, is quite beast with him, and I really don't think he's bad at all. The question is: what do you think? - GalaxiaD (talk) 05:01, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Low? NO ways. I think Captain Falcon and his trademark "FALCON PAUNCH!!!" is at a high degree of epic. In-game character-wise, he still pwns if you know to use him. I like using CF too, so I don't see a reason why to hate (Reality, I think people overrate certain weaknesses of CF enough for them to make him low in chara rankings). Zexas A.

Why thank you GalaxiaD. Captain Falcon has two spikes, a long range special move, a reflector special move, fast speed, great ground and ariel game great dodging skills, AND an awsome Final Smash. he is the best chracter. 09:25, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Hardly anybody knew about him before his apperance in Super Smash Bros unlike Mario, Luigi, Link, Young/Toon Link, Zelda, Ganondorf, Fox, Wolf, Falco, Pikachu, Yoshi, Sonic, Jigglypuff, the Kongs, Wario, Peach, Bowser, Mewtwo, Pichu, Lucario, etc, who were all well known before they were in a Smash Bros game. And he just doesn't have the charm of Ness, even though Ness has never gone to Europe and is more obscure. Captain Falcon is just not popular, so that could be another reason why people don't give him a chance. --TStick (talk) 20:08, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Charm of Ness? Ness? Charm? Hahahahahahahaha! Ness has about as much charm as a bag of iceburg lettuce! But anyways, I wouldn't underestimate a character just because I don't know who they are. When I first got Melee, I was just a youngin', I hadn't heard on Samus, Fox, Marth, Ness, or Falcon. And Falcon was one of my favorite characters. I really doubt people are saying "Captain Falcon? Who the heck is he? Well, I've never heard of him, so he must stink." Besides, who says He's unpopular? Who doesn't like "FALCON PUNCH!!!!"? Maxiscool (talk) 21:03, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
