I like the fact that Vaati used to be Minish and then turnedon Ezlo to become powerful. I think if Vaati was in more games he could get more of a chance to have a deeper plot and thus make him a better villain! ^_^
Hmm, suppose that is true. May I play my own devil's advocate and bring up the fact that in 7 years he turned Hyrule's Castle Town into 'Population: Approx. 7 Redead.' With that information I question my own vote. However, one must ask whether better villain refers to personal choice or by some kind of evil scale. Hmm, I dunno. Suppose if I had to pick whim one on a Super Smash Bros. game, I'd go with Vaati. That makes my decision there! ^^;
Hmm, as a minion? That's not a horrible idea. I like some things about it and dislike some things about it. I think it would be hard to downgrade a villain like that down to a boss such as that. But I would rather see him fought in his normal form though, I think as a big villain he wasn't as cool as he normally looked. Fighting Ganondorf in his human form was my favorite part of him, I wish you could do that with Vaati. Fighting him as a boss like a Phantom Ganon, but just as Vaati looks when you're not fighting him would be cool. =)
No, not Minish. When he steals the Minish cap and turns big. But when you actually fight him in TMC, his first form is different than what he looks like normally. I mean fighting him in the form he looked when he won the swordsmanship tournament.
