Super Smash Bros. Screenshots: Size Comparisons And Fairy Bottles

By Ishaan . February 24, 2014 . 9:30am

Last week’s batch of Super Smash Bros. screenshots brought a few more minor updates on the game. As it turns out, the Nintendogs—who are part of a stage in the 3DS version—are huge.


Meanwhile, Samus—as shown in a recent trailer—is a fair bit taller than Little Mac.


Finally, director Masahiro Sakurai also revealed that fairy bottles will heal even fighters that have accumulated over 100% damage in the game.

    By 100%, you mean when you faint in Stamina Battles right?
    How would that work?

    • SlickRoach

      Maybe like in LoZ when you die you come back to life? Probably with 50% Stamina or something.

      • ronin4life

        But how do you hold on to an item without using it, while still being able to use the A button?

        • Raltrios

          Aren’t there sticky items in Brawl? It wouldn’t be hard to program it just to stay attached to your hip or something.

          • ronin4life

            Except the wording almost implies you can use it instantly to heal.

          • Nanaki

            Sounds similar to a Maxim Tomato to me.

        • KoRLumen

          Think Dragoon Pieces. Perhaps you could taunt to use it immediately.

    • Kelohmello

      No, it’s just referring to non-stamina mode damage. Since, at around 100% you’re /probably/ gonna get sent flying off the screen and get KO’d.

  • Eder García

    size comparisons? RIDLEY CONFIRMED!!!

    • Ben Sylvia

      Sakurai sure loves trolling about the characters people want in the game. XD

      Truly an art form.

  • Namuro

    Ah, I remember seeing people having a fit about Samus’ size on other sites. It seems a lot of people really want Samus to look like a hulking-amazonian, thus, they are still really mad about her height in Other M.

    Also, Rockman’s head is huge!

    • Lalum

      It’s because of the Super Metroid strategy guide.

    • DragKudo

      Well she does have the blood of giant bird people. So yeah she needs be at least their height. Amazons are cool

    • James Enk

      as long as she is a badass bounty hunter i am cool

  • AuraGuyChris

    “Meanwhile, Samus—as shown in a recent trailer—is a fair bit taller than Little Mac.”

    Sure. I wish we could compare their heights better because Mac is crouching down… It’s the Rosalina is taller than Peach issue again.

  • Linhua

    … but I don’t get it… I thought the Heart item did this already..

  • KoRLumen

    Guys, it isn’t going to replace the Heart Container. The HC only restores 100%, whereas the Fairy is implied to heal more – and if it stays true to the Zelda games, it’ll probably function differently, too. Think Dragoon Pieces. It may be likely that you’ll hold onto it until you reach 100% or over, where it’ll be automatically used (or if you’re already over 100%, it’s consumed immediately).

  • Chaos_Knight

    Dat SM3DW reference..

  • Warren

    Is it me or does Samus want the little D!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    And thus, another smash bros ship has set sailed

    • Eder García

      size does matter

    • Vash bane

      wait a minute ….the… lol

  • s07195

    Bowser getting a fairy in a bottle and not Peach… totally a 3D World reference. -.-
