There are a handful of Smash mods out there (for Mellee and Brawl). It may be possible to 'unofficially' add Keen to the roster.

*points at signature* That there was the plan until recently; the Keen sprites would have been a perfect fit for the game. Personally I'm holding out for a Smash Wii U mod if and when it's ever achieved, I'd love to try out customization and extra special moves.

[Edit] And why stop at just a fighter? I want to add one or two stages while I'm at it.

I made this secret area in my megawad called "lost maps 2 : more!"

Me and omer made a rainbow dash HUD for doom, for our mistake most of the doomers are anti-bronies. Image

References by Hall are not stupid, but might as well post this here:
Tom Hall on Facebook wrote:Super Mario Maker said I'd got the 300-star badge, so I popped in... To see the number of stars is Commander Keen's IQ! (And also pi x 100)

Awwwwww! Heartwarming coincidence.

Yeah, why don't we have a legit references thread? Many of these are not stupid...

Because people used to make new threads for all of their
legitimate references.

viewtopic.php?t=1165&start=0
viewtopic.php?t=2135
viewtopic.php?t=2125
viewtopic.php?t=1737
viewtopic.php?t=1653&start=0
viewtopic.php?t=1631
viewtopic.php?t=1160
viewtopic.php?t=1243
viewtopic.php?t=1145
viewtopic.php?t=1114
viewtopic.php?t=2033

And those are just the ones that came up in my "CTRL+F"
for "refer".

Regardless, I took the liberty of making a new thread for
legitimate references / sightings / spottings:
viewtopic.php?p=77847

I worked really hard on making that thread, so maybe
one of the mods can perform the easy task of going through all
35 pages of this thread and manually moving each individual
"legitimate" reference post to the new thread?

What do you think, Keening_Product? :foot

Crysis' landsharks, clearly a reference to those weird grounded fish-things in Keen 3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5MKNyFY638

Found this interesting (and legit) keen reference in Bombshell community, as well as a statement from the developer himself:

Tsk! Keen falsified his name to get into the forces.
