In my opinion, Shulk ought to fight this Boss character instead.
Shulk's Classic Mode route in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is called "Witness the Monado's Power". According to the Super Smash Bros. wiki, "Each of the opponents represent one of Shulk's Monado Arts and are fought in the cycling order of each art in Super Smash Bros. 4." ...That is, all but the Final Round with Master Hand.
I don't consider Master Hand & Crazy Hand to be the suitable boss characters for this Classic Mode, as they don't fit the theme well enough, if at all. Maybe if the Hands were fought at the Gaur Plain ? form instead of Final Destination...
However, I feel that Galleom could've been an even better choice; most of Xenoblade Chronicles was about the playable characters trashing Mechon enemies, with boss Mechon resembling humanoid mechs, so it would make sense for Galleom to be the Boss Character here.
If there were ever to be an update for SSBU that would change the Boss character for Classic Modes, Shulk ought to fight this guy instead.
