13 characters have already been confirmed for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, but there will be plenty more reveals before the brawling fighter reminiscent of Smash Bros is released.
The premier showed off the obvious inclusions such as Spongebob and Michelangelo, though less-famous characters including Powdered Toast Man from Ren & Stimpy and Oblina from Aaahh!!! Real Monsters also made the cut. There’s no official confirmation of any further characters beyond the trailer, but Ludosity Games still has plenty of classic cartoons to pull from.
Plenty of new characters should be announced between now and Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl’s planned release season of fall 2021. These are five fighters that we believe just have to make the final release.
The boy genius is a perfect fit for a Smash-like fighting game. Some of his moves, like a jetpack for his recovery move or the shrink ray for a special attack. Jimmy’s mechanical dog Goddard would also make an excellent cameo. In the battle between adding Jimmy Neutron and Timmy from Fairly Oddparents, Jimmy would likely make for a more interesting fighting game character.
Jenny would probably be a highly mobile fighter, using her rocket limbs to fly through the air and attack from above. Her various vision augments, which include infrared, ultraviolet, and x-ray, could be cycled through to grant various bonuses. Her various weapons are too numerous to include, but her Laser Limbs and chainsaw arms are too iconic not to include.
Rugrats already has some representation from Reptar, but some of the show’s infantile main characters could also be playable. While protagonist Tommy Pickles is the default choice, twins Phil and Lil DeVille would make a more interesting entry. The pair could fight as a tag team, even using their rattles to resemble the Ice Climbers from Super Smash Bros. There isn’t exactly a lot of combat in Rugrats, but Ludosity is clever enough to make a character out of anything. Maybe they could throw worms?
Otto Rocket’s best friend Twister should take the spotlight in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. While Jenny would be extremely mobile in the air, Twister would be fast on the ground using his skateboarding skills. In the show, Twister was skilled at various sports including snowboarding, street-luge, and surfing. He could swap between different extreme sports equipment as a sort of stance character. Rocket Power isn’t one of the most memorable Nickelodeon cartoons, but a representative fighter would certainly make the game more tubular.
This pick is so obvious that it has to end our list of characters for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. The original Avatar series is one of the most acclaimed western cartoons of modern times. Aang’s elemental bending abilities make him an easy character to translate to a platform fighter. Nickelodeon could always go for the more modern appeal with a fighter The Legend of Korra, but the original Aang would be more of a throwback.
