Introduction

A crossover title that features all of Nintendo's biggest mascots, the Super Smash Bros. series is a four player fighting game series whose main feature is pitting the likes of Mario, Pikachu, Link, and Kirby against each other in over-the-top, nail bitingly intense battles. Created by the now revered game designer Masahiro Sakurai, the first installment of the Super Smash Bros. series was released in Japan on January 21st, 1999 on the Nintendo 64. Said first installment, simply titled Super Smash Bros. became a critical and financial success, prompting Nintendo to give Sakurai the green light for any potential sequels. Sakurai seized that opportunity as has made a new installment for the Super Smash Bros. franchise to coincide with each of Nintendo's new gaming systems ever since. Being a gaming franchise whose main selling point is pitting as many of Nintendo's most popular characters together as possible, dog lovers who are also fans of the Super Smash Bros. series will have a plethora of names to choose from, many of which will come straight from another Nintendo franchise like Super Mario, Pokemon, Metroid, or The Legend of Zelda.

Super Smash Bros. Dog Name Considerations

Most of the fighters present in the Super Smash Bros. series are characters from other Nintendo franchises, so many canophilic gamers will likely pick a name for their dogs based off of which series they tend to fancy more than the others; did you grow up loving Nintendo's venerated, high fantasy action-adventure The Legend of Zelda series? Well Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf have been recurring characters through the Super Smash Bros. series, so you're in luck! Maybe you're more of a Pokemon fan who can recite all of the lyrics to the PokeRap without fail. Pokemon fans will be delighted to not only see Pikachu as a mainstay in the Super Smash Bros. series but to also see many other well known Pokemon make cameo appearances due to Pokeballs being regular items players can use in battle. Each of the characters in the Super Smash Bros. games come from respective gaming franchises that have hundreds, if not thousands, of characters that Nintendo fans have become accustomed to over the years, which means that there are potentially just as many naming possibilities for cynophilic gamers to pool from in terms of giving their pets a memorable and distinct name that also represents their favorite Super Smash Bros. characters and Nintendo franchises. Even original characters like Master Hand, Crazy Hand, or Taboo could also give dog loving Nintendo fans even more naming options to take into consideration.
