Universe: Punch Out
Debut: Punch Out!! (1987)
Kirby Hat: Mac hair and/or gloves
Alternative Textures: Shirtless Mac, Battle-worn Mac, All-American Mac (Red and white striped shorts with red gloves and a blue shirt with a single white star)
Background: Little Mac is a17 year old boy from the Bronx who aspires to be a boxing Champion. Trained by “Doc”, a former champion in his own right, Little Mac fights his way into the WVBA becoming the champion after defeating “Mr. Dream”, Mike Tyson.
Reasoning: He is a fan favorite.
Probability: With the revival of Punch Out! on the Wii and his inclusion as an assist trophy in Brawl his inclusion seems probable. Not to mention Sakurai likes to please his fans, and the fans seem to want him badly.
Thoughts: I like him, even though I never played Punch Out!! My only fear is how he would hold items with his gloves. I forsee clipping, which I already have seen in many screenshots from the game for other characters. If they can manage a way around this I am all for it.
