Just change Ganondorf to his Hyrule Warriors model and maybe some unique moves too.

Yeah. I know people are used to him as a clone, but I'd much rather he be original.

As much as I love Fire Emblem I don't think I can bring myself to request any more in an already saturated FE roster. Same with Kid Icarus. I'd be OK with one more Star Fox Rep though (Wolf or Krystal) though they wouldn't make my top 10.

I'd REALLY love to see:

1) Spring Man (or Twintelle ...what?)
2) Wonder Red from W101 (I know I'm dreaming, but it'd be awesome and have great move potential)
3) Nia, or Elma from the Xenoblade games (I know we'll get Rex if anything, but that's ok)
4) Luke from Tales of the Abyss (good to see any Tales rep really)
5) Jeanne or Rodin from Bayonetta
6) Dixie (there are more FE reps than
7) Link from BotW (seperate from classic moves Link)
8) Terra swapped in for Cloud (agree with NotAceAttorney on this one)
9) Quote or Curley from Cave Story
10) Hmmm Impa or a Shin Megami Tensei rep

Wonder red would be great to be honest i forgot that game existed but it would be really out of left field and would have a great move pool.



-Simon Belmont
-Shovel Knight
-Springman/Ribbon Girl
-one of the Metroid Prime Hunters characters
-Paper Mario
-Andy from Advance Wars

I don't know what the rules are for who can be in a Smash game, but I've included some movie characters too.

1. Sir Daniel Fortesque from MediEvil
2. Bumblebee from Transformers
3. Optimus Prime from Transformers
4. Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean
5. Darth Vader from Star Wars
6. Mr. Toffee from Candy Crush
7. A Lego guy
8. Lanius from Fallout: New Vegas
9. An Enderman from Minecraft
10. Jango or Boba Fett from Star Wars



Newcomers I want, no particular order:

  • Excite Biker
  • Simon Belmont
  • Lloyd Irving
  • Shantae
  • Shovel Knight
  • Isaac
  • Monster Hunter
  • Waddle Dee
  • Waluigi
  • Goku (honestly I'm half serious, but I also can't think of a 10th character)

There's a pattern to the newest Gen of Pokemon always being represented, so I think a Gen VII Pokemon is a shoo-in (perhaps Decidueye or Incineroar), unless Gen 8 releases before Smash.

I just want Mega Man and Sonic to stay, but my biggest hope is that Snake returns...

Other than that, I dont really have any complaints with the Smash 4 roster as is.

@FriedSquid Goku isn't as bad a choice as some might think. The recent Dragon Ball fighting game is really good too. He'd fit in just fine. The anime origin would annoy a lot of people though.

Honestly, it comes down to what you want out of Smash. Personally, I see it as a celebration of video game characters, not just Nintendo. Obviously other might only want Ninty characters. Either one is fine.



1) Mii
2) Donkey Kong
3) Dr Mario
4) Sonic
5) Link from Twilight Princess
6) King Daphnes (Human form)
7) Koopa (the basic one)
8) Feraligatr (I don't like Pokemon but I like him)
9) Mr Game & Watch
10) I think I'll leave this one empty because I can't make up my mind. If there is a chance to get Banjo I'd put him on par with Donkey Kong, otherwise there are many things I'd like but can't really decide. One of the best thing of Smash bros is that it is so full of different things.

I would like something from Skyrim to celebrate the first time a TES game has been released on a Nintendo console. It can be a dragon main character or a comic relief character as assist character. For example they could use M'aiq the liar as an assist character. I don't care if it is a main character, an assist character or just some easter egg but it would be very nice.
I want a dragon as one of the main characters but almost certainly we will have Charizard so it is not strictly necessary to have a dragon from Skyrim to scratch that itch.

I'm only going to list those that have never been in a SSB game before. The Inklings would definitely have been on my list if they weren't revealed yet.

  • Madeline from Celeste (I know the chances of this happening are very slim to none but hey, it's my list)
  • Shovel Knight
  • Shantae
  • Rayman
  • Starfy
  • Isaac
  • Musashi from Sushi Striker
  • Someone from Arms other than Spring Man or Ribbon Girl
  • Tethu / Tethi from Ever Oasis
  • Some obscure Nintendo character nobody's thinking of right now (they're always the best!)

Edited on by Madelleste



This might change later, but right now off the top of my head without putting any limitations on, the characters I would like to see most are:

1. Neku Sakuraba (The World Ends with You)
2. Gunvolt (Azure Striker Gunvolt)
3. Rex + Pyra / Mythra (Xenoblade Cronicles 2)
4. 9-Volt or Ashley (WarioWare)
5. Phoenix Wright (Ace Attorney)
6. Professor Layton
7. Shantae
8. Arle (Puyo Puyo)
9. Shovel Knight
10. Isaac (Golden Sun)

However, the only ones in my list that I believe have an actual realistic shot of making it in are 3, one of the two in 4, 9, and 10.

Good shout on Dixie Kong!!

Currently playing Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, Doom and Arms.


Simon Belmont feels like he should have already been in Smash. Now that Mega Man is in he’s the biggest and most obviously missing ‘classic’ character.

Personally I’d like to see Doshin the Giant.

Paula from Earthbound (a modified Ness clone).

More important than just adding characters I’d like to see the inklings link up with your Splatoon 2 data. So your Splatoon character in Smash should be wearing the same clothes as they would be in Splatoon 2.



@Kinoen yeah going with third parties opens thing up, though I’m not sure I like he idea of smash becoming video game brawl. So I limited myself to Nintendo. For me if Krystal got in that’s my main. After that characters get more obscure so that’s why it’s hard for me to pick some. Although hyrule warriors gives me some ideas. Lana, Ruth, Agatha and such could be fun.

10 Fire Emblem characters with different "weapons" and from a mixture of games so like your archer could be Takumi, your lance user could be Ephraim, your axe user could be Hector, you could have some laguz like Ranulf and Tibarn, etc.

Assuming the returning characters are the same, I'd go with this:

1. - Waluigi
2. - Crash Bandicoot
3. - Ganondorf completely reworked
4. - Bandana Dee
5. - Rhythm Heaven character
6. - Alex (Street Fighter)
7. - Travis (No More Heroes)
8. - Snake (I know this ain't happening anymore)
9. - Sub-Zero (Mortal Kombat)
10. - Heavy (Team Fortress 2)

I'm 99% sure Heavy's got no chance, but he's my favourite boy from my favourite game, so I can dream.

summons a meteor on your parents haha I win

Hey, we don't know for certain if it'll be a completely new game or a Deluxe port.~

I would actually really love a stage from Dark Souls, DOOM and Skyrim, with hazards!

Seeing your user-name, I would assume Phoenix Wright would be number 1 on your list

Agreed, it has just been the Triforce wielders for far to long and that Ganon needs a rework, I don't even care how, so long as he's not ripping off Cpt. Falcon...or anyone else. Also, you don't want Beedrill for Smash?

Or give him a complete and utter rework, since I always took him as a Magic user who uses swords, yet he does none of this in Smash.

Well, wasn't Wii-Fit, Duck-Hunt, Pac-Man, Mega-man, Ryu, Cloud, Snake (back in Brawl) and Bayonetta
all out of left field?

+1 for Birdo~

Ashley from Warioware, right? She is a joke character?

For the Smash Ballot, the rules were "Had to have come from a video game.", I would assume the same rules will be applying for Smash 5, but Sakurai is known for being surprising.

Uhh...pretty sure half of your list will be returning characters, but hey, they might be kicked out and you don't want that, understandable.


"Some obscure Nintendo character nobody's thinking of right now (they're always the best!)"
cough Birdo cough

That idea with the Inklings is pretty intriguing. Though if they have the option to be the most fashionable characters in Smash, I would like to double down on all characters having tons of awesome skins.

Limiting yourself to just Nintendo at this point must be very hard xD Hope to see Krystal make it in!

To each their own. I feel like there's to much FE in Smash currently, however, adding 10 anything from any franchise would be severe overkill. Though I like the idea of characters having different weapons, swords have gotten so old so fast.

I dunno, I feel like ValvE would have NO problem putting in Heavy (or anyone) for Smash, they've got quite a few cameo's in other games, it just boils down to whether or not Nintendo wants that.

That's good to know. Movies have a ton of characters that would be amazing in Smash. Two more I thought of is Predator and Alien.
