Getting Every Character into Elite Smash

Prepare for the timeless journey of Manic's voyage into Elite Smash.
[Sponsored] Download AFK Arena for free!

After two years of Ultimate, I somehow had less than half of the roster in Elite Smash. So naturally, I decided to rip the band-aid off and get every remaining character into the promised land of Elite Smash. All thanks to Manic.

...I'll make a Sephiroth video soon.

    I don't know how you do this, I would have thrown my controller twice when people leave after sweating so hard and you get nothing out of it. Never am I playing online smash unless it's for fun

    As someone who tries to main littlemac and fails, he probably just wants to fight you to sharpen his skills. No way to get better at fighting than to fight the people who now their shit about the game. Little mac is 100% skill based, and I'm awful at him just like the rest of the little mac mains.

    The reason Greninja took so long to get in elite smash it's because they're a ninja why would they want people to know their name if they're an elite smash all right that was a bad joke I'm out of here
