This is about a mid-tier stage for me, though probably the most pleasant to look at. It’s based on the level/world Magicant from Earthbound Zero (Mother) on the Famicom/NES and Earthbound (Mother 2) on SNES.
It took me awhile to notice but on the far right cloud, a flying man will appear. This bird-humanoid will ally with the first fighter who tags him.
And he’ll act like at trophy and try to hurt everyone else. I’m surprised he doesn’t appear anywhere else. To win a game here, control of that cloud is crucial. It is kind of cheap though.
While far from my favorite stage, I do like this one a good bit.
