If not for skipping Melee, the Bumper item would’ve been in every single Super Smash Bros. game. It may not have that perfect attendance, but only missing a single Smash game puts it on par with features such as a gallery of collectibles and Marth. Such a recurring legacy deserves a minute in the spotlight, which takes us to Ultimate’s next online tournament event.

It may not hail from the underrated and seal-filled NES title Pinball, but these babies would be right at home on any number of tables. There doesn’t appear to be any restrictions on potentially playable characters for this event, though I might suggest leaning towards a certain blue hedgehog. After all, who in Smash has more experience with these kinds of launchers than Sonic?
You can put your crazy flipper fingers to the test when the weekend long Bumper brawl begins this Friday, July 30th.
