Kraid is confirmed to be in Smash! a stage hazard on the Brinstar Depths stage... again.

But hey! At least he can now say hello to Ridley whenever he fights on the stage, as well as bully and laugh at him for being shrunken down to a wrilkly Spyro, while Kraid himself remains too big.

Why He's Better Than Ridley - SizeEdit

If Ridley can be resized, so can Kraid. Kraid, unlike Ridley, is known by his size, but he was just as small as Ridley was in Metroid, so he can be that small again.

You see, Kraid is big. According to Smash canon, he's bigger than everything. Including Ridley. Which just isn't possible.

See. SEE?

 But if Ridley can still ignore Smash Canon to be resized, so can Kraid.

Why He's Better Than Ridley - RepresentationEdit

While RIdley would represent the entire series (minus Metroid II, Metroid Prime II, and some Prime spinoff that no one cares about, but really, no one cares about any of those games in the first place), Kraid would represent Metroid, Super Metroid, and Metroid: Zero Mission. These are the most important games in the series, as they are the first game, the best game, and the remake of the first game. Ridley is in these games too, and he has a bigger role in two of them, but Kraid has the biggest role in those same two, as he's bigger than Ridley. He also represents the time when the games were good before the garbage known as Metroid Prime came out. It ruined the franchise by not including Kraid. While he was planned to appear, he didn't, meaning the Prime series was disgusting. Ridley was in them too, so by being in Smash, Ridley would remind everyone of the horror that is the Prime series. Other M was no better, as even Phantoon was in that. Ridley's clone was as well, but the game didn't have Kraid, so it was just as bad as the Prime series (and Fusion, while we're at it). Therefore, the game needs a Metroid/Super Metroid/Zero Mission rep, and Kraid is the only viable choice.

Why He's Better Than Ridley - DeconfirmedEdit

Kraid was deconfirmed better than Ridley, too! While Sakurai leaves us in the tension of not knowing Ridley's fate, it was revealed during a GameXPlain video that Kraid is a boss in Smash Run (what). He's still as popular of a request as ever, of course.
