Waluigi Fans Want To Add The Nintendo Character To The Periodic Table
The growing unrest regarding the distinct lack of Waluigi in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has finally begun to have real-world consequences. There is now – and I can’t believe I’m saying this – a petition to add the shunned Nintendo character to the official periodic table as element 119, and at the time of writing there are currently almost 4,000 signatures.
Now viewable over on change.org, the petition by creator King Creeper is asking that Waluigi be added to the periodic table to replace element 119, temporarily named Ununennium, initials Uue. The petition calls for the name to be replaced by “Waluigium” with the initials Wa or Wl, apparently they aren’t too picky. This isn’t even the endgame, either. According to the creator, the ultimate plan is to get Nintendo to notice that Waluigi has his own element, and to respond to it in some way.
The petition is addressed to the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, the permanent fixture of science that handles any and all things periodic table-related. It has been roughly a month since the petition started, and as of now there has been no type of response from them, nor is there any expectation of there to be even if the petition goes viral.
With Nintendo having released a framework of what fans can expect out of the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC, the chances of Waluigi getting added in to the game are lessening substantially, but it’s still nice to see dedicated fans doing everything they can to right this perceived wrong. Maybe with enough signatures, they can pull it off?
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
