—The Chorus Kids
The Chorus Kids, also known as the Chorus Men or Chorus Boys, were very highly expected, and pretty hated, newcomers for Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS, hailing from the Rhythm Heaven games. They're pretty much the poster boys of the infamous Gematsu Leak, mainly due to being a weird-ass choice, in comparison to the other predicted newcomers. After E3 2014, they became part of the Gematsu Three alongside Shulk and Chrom. Also like Chrom, they will never be playable.
Who Are The Chorus Kids? Edit
The Chorus Kids are characters from the "Glee Club" minigame in the Nintendo DS game Rhythm Heaven. In addition to that, the character "Marshal" from Rhythm Heaven Fever is based on the Chorus Kids, leading many to think that the alleged Gematsu leaker was referring to Marshal when stating that the Chorus Men were playable. They sing. They're chorus kids, what the fuck did you think they'd do. There's three of them. They're white. They have bowties. They have huge mouths. I don't know what else to tell you about them.
Why The Hell Would Anyone Think That They Are In? EditThey gained their notoriety when they in the Gematsu leak. Unlike the other unconfirmed characters at the time, Shulk, Chrom, Pac-Man, Palutena, and Mii, who were considered shoo-ins, barely anyone thought they had a chance of being playable, which actually made the leak more, as Sakurai is known for making strange choices with the roster. I mean, we've gotten the Wii Fit Trainer of all people. Thus, the Chorus Kids became EXTREMELY polarizing on the board, leading to loads of debates about how they are the second coming of Jesus Christ, how they are the worst thing to happen to the world since NintendoIsBeast, and how the hell they are supposed to attack. While many others thought that these guys had no chance, at E3 2014, several people who tried Smash Run found the "Sneaky Spirit", a character from Rhythm Heaven. And they actually got footage of it. Nowadays, most GameFAQs users treat this as proof that he is confirmed. Seriously, check any post-E3 fanmade roster prediction. I guarantee you they will be on it. Thus, somehow, these three Chorus Boys are one of the most talked-about characters on the GameFAQs SSB4 board. Just look at how many people talk about these guys.
The Chorus Kids Now Edit
On January 26, 2015, however, someone found a Rhythm Heaven character icon in the game's files, in the same section as the fighters themselves. Were the Chorus Kids planned for Smash 4? Nobody knows, but it's not like Rhythm Heaven could have had any other fighters or anything. Just the Chorus Men, even though they were among the least talked-about potential newcomers for the series prior to Gematsu.
- Andre from GameXplain would rather have the boring-ass samurai than the Chorus Kids.
- The Chorus Kids made a very minor cameo in Game and Wario, so GUIZ CHORUS KIDZ CONFIRMEDDDDD.
- Others have speculated that the Chorus Kids are actually Ridley, King K. Rool, and Mewtwo.
- If they took a test, the Chorus Men would apparently get an F, as they goof around a lot.
