If given the option to include another character from the Sonic franchise, many will immediately request Knuckles. This punch-drunk brawler knows how to serve up a buffet of knuckle sandwiches, and there’s no question that he’s one of the most fitting characters to occupy a spot on the roster.
Knuckles has actually already made an appearance in Super Smash Bros. - he just wasn’t playable. The crimson echidna can be seen running in the background of Brawl‘s Green Hill Zone, and his trophy can be earned and put prominently on display after unlocking Sonic. What baffled fans however, was the fact that Nintendo went through the trouble of getting the license to use Sega‘s most recognizable characters in their game but failed to make more than one of them playable. It’s about time to rectify that.
