In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo added a little extra to the Palutena’s Guidance conversations that carried on from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/Nintendo 3DS.
If the conversation is activated in the proximity of a fighter that was cut in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/Nintendo 3DS, Palutena will reveal the reason behind that fighter’s cut. In the case of Ice Climbers, they were removed due to “illegal teaming”, as they are after all, two characters fighting as one.
Check out the other reasons below, which are equally hilarious:
Dr. Mario: Malpractice
Mewtwo: Unauthorized mind control
Squirtle and Ivysaur: Illegal teaming
Pichu: Removed due to overwhelming concerns about his self-harming tendencies
Wolf: Excessive howling
Snake: Smoking in a non-smoking area
Young Link: Vandalism
Lucas: Requested time off to spend time with family
