WORD OF THE DAY! 2/15/14!

uppercut [up-er-kuht]
1. A swinging blow directed upward, as to an adversary's chin.
2. To swing a blow upwards, especially into an adversary's chin.

EX. Little Mac, star of Punch-Out!! on the NES,  Super Punch-Out!! on the SNES & Punch-Out!! on the Wii uppercut is his way onto the Super Smash Bros. 4 roster and the community let out a resounding...

"About damn time!"

The character first hit the scene in 1987 and it seems criminal that he didn't make an appearance until the third Smash Bros. as a trophy in Brawl. Perhaps they were concerned about Mac's fighting style lacking flavor, since he isn't magical or sci-fi, but it seems that they've finally figured out that a guy who punches could fit in with the rest of the roster with a little bit of creative inclusion of his more iconic moves and the mechanics from the games.

And, since the first person he knocked out was Samus, there is already a ton of Rule 43-esque art depicting them as a couple. But, for your information other fans of Smash Bros., I thought that Brawl confirmed Pikachu & Samus to be the "OTP". Then again, maybe that's more of a friendship since I think that would technically be illegal and immoral. So... more power to Samus X Mac!
