As many feared would be the case, beloved internet-favorite Waluigi has been left out of the upcoming Smash Bros. Ultimate's roster of playable characters. This transpired, despite the absolute surge in popularity Waluigi has experienced over the past few years, and despite the fact Nintendo opted to include AS MANY characters as possible in this latest iteration (including long-awaited Metroid villain, Ridley). Waluigi's exclusion was only made more painful by the revelation that he WOULD be appearing in the game....as an Assist Trophy, able to do little else but receive damage and be brutalized.

Fans across the internet let out cries of horror and disappointment. Nintendo had done so much to make this the most fan service-y Smash yet, and still Waluigi was snubbed.

There are no easy answers here - I wish I could offer Waluigi fans some comfort, but I have nothing. It seems unlikely he would be added as a DLC character down the line, given he's already in the game as an Assist Trophy. Really, the only balm that could ease this wound would be a solo AAA Waluigi game, but I won't hold my breath for that. Instead, let's just share some of the best reactions from dedicated Waluigi fans as they try to process their grief:
