knucklesI love me some Shadow The Hedgehog, with his red highlights and gun toting bad assness, and I’d love to see him playable in Smash Bros., but I think there’s someone from the Sonic universe who deserves it more.

I’m talking about everyone’s favourite monotreme, Knuckles The Echidna.

First introduced (as far as I am aware) in Sonic The Hedgehog 3, Knuckles quickly became popular with SEGA fans, appearing in heaps of subsequent Sonic games.

I want Knuckles in the roster not because I particularly like him, or because he has a move set I’d like to use in Smash.

Not even because of some nostalgic connection I have to his games or the fact Echidna’s are native to Australia.

It actually has more to do with spite.

I want him there, and I voted for him, simply because I hope Tails doesn’t get in. He’s a smarmy jerk and I’ve never liked him.

Go Knuckles.
