Sadly Mechanica. I don't really like any of them. They remind me of something I'd see in a bad kids movie by dreamworks, rather than the Disney characters I normally get from Nintendo.

Maybe I'll get used to them.

I thought the first two they showed off were far the worst though. It's why I had little to no interest until the direct. Now I'll try it out, and if it's fun, I'll buy it.

Min Min is my early favorite.

Shout out to the Ninja College senior Ninjara for having chain-goggles. I loved that attention to detail lol

Byte & Barq are great. Mechanica is probably the weakest design imo. Children piloting robots don't do anything for me.

I like Twintelle because she's basically Bayonetta.
Still, Minmin is of course top tier.

Every design in this game is amazing. Min Min might be my fav, but I like literally every character. I really don't understand how Nintendo has such amazing art design so consistently, but I am not complaining :)

I like Master Mummy's apparent play style, but design wise, it's a toss up between Helix and Byte and Barq!

Kis Cobra looks like a Megaman robot master.

I don't think any of them have really appealed to me. The game's visual style just doesn't work for me. Helix and Mechanica would probably be my "favorites", but I don't love them.

It's a shame because I loved all of Splatoon's character designs.

The characters are all so varied and unique, as well as being fantastically designed.
You'd be able to tell who's who just by their silhouette, a mark of great character design.

I like Ninjara and Robo Dog myself, though it's hard choosing. Fuck it, I'll main the entire roster.

Min-Min's got a standout color combination and dragon motif. Plus, the beanie bowl and noodles for hair is amazing.

I had barely any interest in this game as I didn't really like the design of the first two characters, but damn the other ones are rocking it.

Why not making Min Min and Dogbot the heroes, lol?

Okay, are some of them wearing suits with those ARMS attached? The blonde tea lady has the ARMS on her head so I know people in that world have regular, normal human arms.

For a fresh Nintendo game the roster is pretty boring.

SPRING MAN: Aka Bland Man.

RIBBON GIRL: Eh. Nice colors at least.

NINJARA: Meh.

MASTER MUMMY: Meh.

MECHANICA: Okay.

MIN MIN: I love the ramen motif and the colors are great. Fantastic design, my favorite for sure.

HELIX: WTF-tier.

KID COBRA: Meh.

BYTE & BARQ: Dangerously cheezy.

TWINTELLE: She has style and great hair. Respect. I already know that I will hate the fandom around her.

The game lacks good looking dude characters.


E: Thinking more about Helix I'm super disappointed in that they took the perfection that is the DNA motif and just made a green blob around it.

Helix's movement and expressionless face is nightmare fuel. I don't know why I find him so unsettling. He's like the Voldo of ARMS.

Eeeeyup. Best design so far (imo) but of course people have to be weird as fuck about it.

Ribbon Girl's alt colors look great too (her default is kinda "meh" for me). Helix looks weird as hell but it's hard not to love him.

Second place for Byte&Barq: very reminiscent of the Yattaman zoomorph robots!
Third place for Twintell, very original design withthe fighting airs instead of arms

Robot Dog looks cool but the robot character is creepy as hell, like its was missing its face and you saw his skull.

Could I point out the fact that a new fighting game launched by Nintendo has a pretty even 50/50 split on Male/Female representation in the roster?
