Super Smash Bros can be used a measure of a character’s success, only the best earning a place in Sakurai’s elite roster. However, Suda51 feels that the protagonist of No More Heroes has earned a right to join the brawl. Travis Touchdown has been a popular character for nearly a decade now, making his debut in 2007’s No More Heroes. In an interview with IGN, Suda51 described his plan to pester Sakurai until Travis gets in. Do you think Travis Touchdown deserves a position in Smash? Tell us below.

“In all seriousness, next time he does decide to go and make a Smash Bros. game, I’m seriously going to tell him, ‘Put in Travis Touchdown. Come on, put him in the game.’ So every time we talk about this, partially in the middle he listens, he starts to laugh, and that laugh trails off into, ‘ha ha…’. This time Sakurai-san, I’m not going to let you go. You’re not getting away.”




  1. Travis was in Killer 7 before No More Heroes. You are a horrible writer. I’ve been reading this doggerel for about a year now and the only reason I continue is because I make money by buying the pre-orders that this site announce.

    Do some research for once–being the first ain’t all that if you’re the first one to write BS.

  2. Since Sakurai is working on a different project, it depends if Nintendo and developer (and third party publisher) Bandai Namco were to add Travis T. in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch.

  3. I’m sorry, but smash bros should only be limited to legends within gaming history. Which is why bayonetta doesn’t make a whole lot of sense either. Travis touchdown does not fit the bill. Now I’m gonna contradict myself and say that I’m still a fan of obscure characters making the roster. However, there are a ton of potential candidates from gaming history that make the list way before Travis T does. If they start throwing in nobody’s then smash will lose its prestige and become PlayStation all stars.

      • Sounds like you just weren’t old enough to play the games when they first came out ;)

        The two No More Heroes games are masterpieces. And I’m not saying that easily, believe me. The gameplay sucks sometimes, the story makes no sense… But it’s an allegory of the whole of gaming industry, with clichés galore (to be able to better criticize them), gameplay elements from lots of various genres etc. It’s an artsy game once you look beyond the gore, one that is definitely worthy of being represented in Smash, be it as a character, a stage, or, more realistically, as a trophy.

  4. How about you GIVE us No More Heroes 3 first (as in actually showing off some gameplay) and then we can talk about Travis in Smash?

    Not sure if they’ll have to censor his iconic charging animations (aka bean katana masturbation).

      • Tell that to Bayonetta, who’s niche as it gets yet Sakurai let her win over more deserving characters in the ballot.

        Or Corrin for that matter since nobody, not even the biggest Fire Emblem fanboys, wanted that Gary Sue shit.

        • ||The difference is that even our nobodies are still ranked higher than non Nintendo nobodies property by default or even important ones unless they actually contributed to gaming history just like Pac-Man and Megaman…||

          ||The ones that do deserve to be in the next are Bomberman, someone from Castlevania and Mystical Ninja perhaps…||

            • ||The Konamians had their greatest moments back in ancient and older times and they’ve had a significant impact compared to most new ones today…||


              • This is Modern Konami we are talking about. The same ones that turned Bomberman into an anime ecchi pandering fest and made Castlevania: Erotic Violence.

                We didn’t get Snake back in Smash 4. So what makes you think they will actually redeem themselves with more than just Super Bomberman R?


                • ||Modern Konami doesn’t erase the great contributions of the past, so even if they are almost totally worthless today, we can still honour their past…||


          • Yes, let’s gloss over the other characters that fans wanted like K. Rool, Isaac, Snake, Shovel Knight, Krystal, Waluigi, Rayman, and so forth.

            But that find if you want to believe what you want.


  5. Meanwhile, Atlus is literally making no move on having anything Shin Megami Tensei related in Smash (and no, Tokyo Mirage Sessions doesn’t count). They’ve had so much history with Nintendo for years while Persona is still being home to PlayStation.

    You know you want to give us Jack Frost or even one of the protagonists (Nanashi or Flynn would be good). Just let the NSFW demons like Mara and friends stay out and they fit like a glove.

    • King Kalas X3 {Greatness Awaits at Sony PlayStation 4! Hopefully it will also await us at Nintendo Switch if Nintendo doesn't FUCK things up again!}

      Or that penis monster. xD


  6. Kojima did do something similar to this. He begged Sakurai to put Snake in Melee, but was too late, so he was included in Brawl. (And now stupid Konami are being dicks and won’t allow Snake to return in Smash 4.)


  7. ” . . .only the best earning a place in Sakurai’s elite roster.”

    Corrin, Dark Pit, and Wii Fit Trainer say “hi” (WFT gets a pass though because she’s such an out-there pick that a whole new meaning of the word “deserving” gets created).
