Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
According to Masahiro Sakurai, in an interview with Famitsu, the reason why Kirby (being a creation of Sakurai's) was the only one that survived Galeem's attack was because he was the only one who could plausibly escape it using his Warp Star. This also made the character accessible to starters or newcomers to the game, as a result of his speed and attacks.

Ash is a mini boss that can only be encountered in Japanese versions of the game. He's a homosexual who's very stereotypical in both appearance and behavior. He prances around the stage, lets out a feminine laugh when he grabs the player and uses the female voice cry when defeated in battle. He can be unlocked as a playable character by pressing and holding the B button when he is defeated. He is the strongest out of all the characters and attacks fast.

Ash was removed from the North American and European versions of the game likely because of the obvious backlash SEGA would've received. His boss theme can still be heard but only in the BGM test screen.
