The Space Pirate’s big debut. Underline big.

Samus’ archenemy will finally shove his massive body onto the Super Smash Bros. roster. Arm yourself for battle with a Ridley amiibo.

Yes, Ridley will finally do what was once thought impossible in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: he will become playable. No, he’s not too big. Granted, he seems to dwarf fellow fighters. And with every new fighter inclusion comes a new Amiibo.

Naturally, Ridley’s amiibo looks as if he’s making the ubiquitous platform crumble by simply standing on it. You’ll be able to use this amiibo to get great in-game features in the upcoming brawler. But because it’s Ridley, it also doubles as a spooky deterrent for home invaders.

This amiibo releases along with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on December 7, and is available for pre-order on Amazon for $15.99.
