I know what you're thinking! "ALL THAT PINK, THE PICTURE IS SO PINK!"
And you would be right! But is it the pinkest a match picture has ever been?
BAM! No it is not! I don't usually advertise my own pics, but I will find any excuse I can to post that thing. I love that picture.
As for this match, it was bound to be predictable, but Terra doing this well was just nuts. We all kind of had a feeling Peach would leech from Kirby pretty hard and Terra would do well thanks to Dissidia and her recent history of overperforming, but even then this was just silly. I hate using the 1 on 1 logic with 3ways here, but does anyone have Kirby only getting 56% on Terra 1 on 1? I know Peach messes up those stats, but even 60-40 just seems crazy. Terra has been beasting since Dissidia, although Kefka getting all the upsets instead of her kind of sucks. Terra is awesome, Final Fantasy 6 might be the best game in that entire series, and Terra's design upgrade from FF6 to Dissidia is one of the best upgrades ever. I know it's technically the same colors, but man does she look good in 3D.
I love Terra, and I loved this match. We should set up Terra in some winnable upset and laugh.
Actually, does Draven go sophomore slump and get no rallies next time? Draven vs Terra, let's do this.
Even when the match pic is aggressively pink all-around, Kirby still manages to stand out by just being so spherical. Does anyone have more of a pic advantage than Kirby in any scenario?
Coming off of Dissidia, Terra was able to take advantage of Peach LFFing Kirby to look really respectable here. She definitely looked much better than Kefka did losing handily to GLaDOS.
Terra should be Sakurai's next pick for Smash. I know a lot of people are on team Vivi/Black Mage, but Terra just feels right to me. FFVI is one of the biggest and most beloved SNES games. If Cloud can make it in just cuz he walked on screen once in Chain of Memories, then Terra definitely deserves a spot.
Coming off of Mario Odyssey, Peach should have gotten a tiny boost, but probably nothing substantial. It's been a long time since she was in the spotlight. If 3D World had been more recent she probably would have been a bit stronger due to actually being playable. The biggest question is whether or not Daisy makes it in again now that she's an Echo in Smash.
