Reasons why “Mr. Smash Ball” is a popular topic among the ladies:

*He’s noticeable even when he’s not doing anything.
*It’s really cute when he floats (softly) in the air.
*But he strikes really hard
*(When he has an aura around him, he’s really dangerous
*He lends his power at the critical moment. And you can request it.
Robin: I wonder who I should vote for the new fighter…
Robin: Fighters like Bandana Waddle Dee or King K. Rool seem to be really popular…
