Groose For Hyrule Warriors!
Quick Thoughts: Will Groose Be A Playable Character In Hyrule Warriors?
Despite despising the Warriors series – I am excited for Hyrule Warriors. I am certain that the game will be terribly repetitive and too shallow for my taste, but the sheer amount of fan service made for Zelda fans like myself – has me salivating for more.
The appeal of Hyrule Warriors is no doubt the opportunity to play as your favorite Zelda Character. Rarely in a Zelda title do we ever play as anyone else besides Link. Playing as Queen Zelda, Impa, Midna and even Fi will be a welcome change.
Koei Tecmo will continue to announce more playable characters for Hyrule Warriors in the coming weeks. I’d assume that Zelda Fans will have their own preferences on what characters should be included in the roster. With this said, I would like to suggest Groose from Skyward Sword to be a playable character.
Groose is one of the most memorable characters from Skyward Sword and in the entire series for that matter. A pompous idiot! Sure! A little arrogant! Certainly! However, Groose has the heart and guts of a true hero, and not to mention one of the best theme ever. While I will not spoil Skyward Sword for those that have not played it yet (what’s wrong with you btw) – Groose plays a critical part in saving the day.

Groose is an almost certainty for Hyrule Warriors – whether it be a playable character, or a NPC is still debatable. The biggest clue is the appearance of the Groosenator in one of the Hyrule Warriors screenshots. For those that are unfamiliar with the weapon, the Groosenator is a catapult device that Groose uses to hurl bombs, and even Link in Skyward Sword.
If Groose is indeed a playable character I would assume that he would be a brawn focused character, using his powerful kicks and punches as a means to attack. Perhaps, being a bomb soldier would fit Groose’s skill sets. I think the most important aspect – is to add a bit of comedy and humor when designing Groose’s attack set – this is a large part of his charm and appeal.
Overall, I believe Groose will be a fantastic addition to the Hyrule Warriors cast!
