@Randori: I honestly don't understand why. Because of how he looks? Because if it's in terms of gameplay then i don't know just why you like him.
Roy played exactly the same as Marth did and still sucked compared to the latter. There's little distinctions between them, some obvious like Roy's idiotically slow - idiotically strong charging attack, and some subtle:
Gamefaqs wrote:Wavedash length: Marth's is longer
Running speed: Marth is faster
Marth's sweetspot is at the very tip of his sword
Roy's sweetspot is at the center of his sword.
Marth is stronger than Roy.
Marth is heavier than Roy.
Marth's ground A attack comes out faster continuously than Roy's.
Roy's special attacks are stronger.
Roy's throws are stronger, but Marth can chain throw better
Roy falls faster than Marth.
Roy's up B is slower than Marth's and has multiple hits.
Marth's dair is a spike (not a meteor smash)
Roy's dtilt sends the opponent up, while Marth's sends the opponent downwards.
Roy's Usmash has multiple hits and can "spike" if you hit with the tip of his sword.
Ike at least was a change of pace, being a true heavyweight instead.
I liked to use Dr. Mario with his black coat because he looks like a backalley druglord dispensing smack and snow to all the good little kids in smash bros.
