Earlier this morning, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai took some time outside of the newest character of the game, The Hero of the popular Dragon Quest role-playing game. The presentation details what Hero will bring to the table after being added to the game, and so far some of the most competitive players Smash seem wary of his apparent power, even though they spend zero time actually playing like him.  Brian Cosmos Kalu pleads his case, detailing the full list of Hero's known abilities, which include healing, drowsing opponents, and accidentally inflicting increased damage with his special attacks.
Leonardo "MkLeo" Lopez Perez believes the Hero is already the best character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate but also acknowledged the inherent nonsense of the statement, since he saw that the falling fighter would still not be released.
Ramin "Mr. R ”Delshad Fears Hero's Impact on Competition Super Smash Bros. Ultimate .
Eric "ESAM" Leu is convinced that the Hero will counter his main character Pikachu.
There are also competing petitions seeking to ban and subsequently ban the hero from playing. (Both of these petitions seem tongue-in-cheek, though you never really know with the Smash community.) The last one published by William "Leffen" Hjelte after this morning Super Smash Bros The Last Stream currently has 820 signatures, while Panda Global's petition to release the hero – who again has not yet come out – is at 215.
The reactions of the new fighter are not all doomed and gloomy. Several players are eagerly awaiting the release of Hero, including former Evo Salem Champion Salem Young.
Samuel Dabuz Busby believes in his story with a playing card game – not to mention Pikmin's random draws from Olimar – will help him use his feet in Hero's random abilities in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate .
 Ezra "Samsora" Morris feels the same way after dealing with Peaches's unreliable turnip for years.
There is also a contingent from the Smash community, such as Gavin Twick Dempsey and Nairobi Nairoz Kesad, who simply stare in disbelief at the Hero's toolbox
As often happens, the hero's revelations are provided quite a few meme options. ChuChuMcGoo, for example, sees a bright future for Thwacks round openings.
Retired competitor Gonzalo "ZeRo" Barrios was definitely one.
The comment team Zack "Connie" Zeeks and Terence "TKbreezy" Kershaw had similar thoughts about the character's ability to put opponents to sleep.
Some people point out that character players may need to learn several languages to accurately use its spell menu.
Ace Watkins, who would probably be the first president of US gamers, has promised to work with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate directed by Masahiro Sakurai to ensure that the characters of the DLC are no longer overpowered compared to the rest of the cast. Anyway, where the Smash fans are ahead of the conversation about whether the latest addition to the game has been surpassed. So actually, they do it before he even plays.
