From Link to Mario, each is the master of their own game. What would happen if you took these individually heroic characters and placed them into the same ring? Would Luigi prove stronger than Yoshi?

What's a shame about Super Smash Bros, is that this is the first appearance on the 64-bit system for some of these characters.
