Meet the new Brawl challengers – Part 15 – an amazing android

questionmarks225.jpg[There are 15 new challengers in Super Smash Bros Brawl. This series will feature each new contender and rank them on their fighting potential with the Infendo Smash-O-Meter! The Smash-O-Meter measures each character (on a scale of 0 to 300) on their uniqueness and potential as a great Brawler. Spoilers may be present, so be careful if you wish to remain unspoilt.  Please enjoy the final entry in this series!]



The Robotic Operating Buddy was released in an attempt to get the NES into toy stores that didn’t want to sell video game systems. Only two R.O.B. games were produced, but this didn’t stop from ingraining him in the minds of classic video gamers around the world.

As accessory: Gyromite, Stack-Up
As a character: Mario Kart DS

One of the heaviest characters from Mario Kart DS, R.O.B. has been given much more nimble controls. Eyes that shoot lasers and other attacks make R.O.B. a robot you don’t want to mess with!

His unexpected entry into the Smash Bros series, nostalgia, and his fighting style earn R.O.B. the coveted top spot on our Smash-O-Meter!


A bizarre addition to the game, how do you rank R.O.B. in anticipation of Brawl?
