Inspired by the current furore over Super Smash Bros being branded racist over the character Mr Game And Watch, perhaps? I know people started yelling over the last few days, but don't play the game so I don't have any further details. Feel free to delete / expand. 172.69.62.160 09:36, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Clippy: "It was an intelligent user interface that assisted users." Really? Did you have a different clippy? 141.101.69.45 10:05, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Randall should submit his list to McLeodGaming, maybe they will put one of these into SSF3. https://mcleodgaming.fandom.com/wiki/Character#Playable_characters_2 --162.158.88.44 10:53, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

The Mario and Luigi hybrid might be a reference to this monstrosity. Fabian42 (talk) 12:09, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

is it just me or is the the Ruth Bader Ginsberg reference maybe related to how she looks like an older version bayonetta? 162.158.106.168 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I assumed Lot's wife would be the pillar of salt version, because of how salty Smash players are when they lose. -162.158.38.196 20:47, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

The Lego Star Wars games for the Gamecude and Wii feature the Sarlacc Pit, though mostly asa a background/cutscene element, and definitely not as a playable character. It should probably also be noted that these games were multi-platform. 108.162.246.83 21:01, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

(Hope this is formatted correctly) This comic probably is in response to last Thursday's Nintendo Direct, about the new Smash game coming next month. In that trailer, many characters were deconfirmed, including many popular picks, while a completely unexpected character (not said to avoid spoilers for those who don't wish to see them) was added. Many people have expressed amounts of negativity about the roster reveals, ranging from simple disappointment about their most wanted not making the cut to people raging about said characters inclusion due to how "deserving" said character is. People who are extremely disappointed and people who are defensive about the choices have made the fanbase really... Broken, as usual. Depending on how you see the comic, Randall could be mocking those or sympathising with those who didn't get their characters in. Also, Lot's wife being the pillar of salt version could indeed be about how salty the Smash community can be (which would fit nicely if this comic is making fun of fans' overzealous disappointment) but it could also be seen as a reference to a certain event in the story mode, although it's not an exact reference.172.68.46.41 23:47, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

As for characters needing to be from Nintendo characters, Cloud only appears in games for Nintendo systems that are crossovers with characters from multiple different Final Fantasy games, with only a minority of those being on Nintendo systems. Some of the other characters also have the majority of their game appearances, including their original appearance, on other companies platforms (Snake, Pac Man, and Sonic.) And for the person talking about the Game and Watch controversy, that is not referenced in this comic, and the game has been a big topic of discussion among some people lately for reasons that have nothing to do with that, mainly due to it being highly anticipated and being released early next month, along with recent announcements of details about the game, including what characters are included (which is what this comic is talking about).--162.158.74.27 09:16, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
