@Kinoen yeah we are running out of characters. I wouldn’t be too upset though if they more or less stopped adding characters unless new IPs are made. We do have a lot of fighters now and at some point I ask do we really need 4000 fighters? So yeah we have some notable Nintendo characters missing but beyond that I don’t necessarily need dozens of new additions. Would also give them more time to focus on other modes and such.

It'd be awesome to see some more third-party characters get some love!

Leaving logic firmly at the door...

I think that Ezio Auditore (Assassin's Creed) would make a pretty cool (if unlikely) addition; he's agile, nimble and has them ninja-fighting skills! (..likewise, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader from Star Wars - both are pretty epic with lightsabres in hand!)

Not sure what moves he'd have but, for some retro-goodness, it'd be pretty sweet to see Q*Bert make a comeback after all these years!

Yooka and Laylee could make a fun 2-in-1 character! (..and if they could get Banjo and Kazooie as well, it'd be fun to see which pairing would win in a head-to-head battle! )

Earthworm Jim has been in a fighting game - the game itself may have been terrible, but Jim is still my favourite gaming earthworm, so it'd be great to see him brought back...and get a second chance in fighting game that's actually decent! #Redemption!

Hammer Bro should get some love too! ..and the throwing hammers would make for an awesome range weapon! (..also Oddjob from GoldenEye - not only is he a classic video game character, but they could give him the blade-trimmed throwable hat he had in the film Goldfinger as a unique weapon!)

...and I'll throw Joanna Dark (Perfect Dark) in there too - more of a shooter than a fighter, I guess - but one of my favourite gaming protagonists nonetheless! (..and it'd be beautiful to see her 'return home' to a Nintendo console after all these years! )

Chibi-Robo

There aren't many characters I'd want besides that except maybe Isaac from Golden Sun. Chibi-Robo is a character I find would be a great fit for Smash Bros. He would have such a creative moveset, probably swinging around his cord for basic attacks but for specials and smash attacks he has so many tools in his arsenal. His blaster, squirter, chibi-copter, and so much more. He would even have some cool costumes, like his frog costume and Drake Redcrest suit. I'm surprised more people aren't asking for him in Smash.

My top ten... Probably a unrealistic list but here it is

10. Black Mage (Final Fantasy)
9. Ice Climbers.
8. Simon Belmont
7. Any Sonic character (an OC would be hilarious)
6. Mike Jones (Startropics, mainly because it’s a franchise Nintendo seems have forgotten about).
5. Pokémon Tranier (I would like it if they took a new take on him, maybe the gen 2 trainer)
4. Paper Mario (A weird one, but with 6 games under his belt there is more than enough for a unique character, and would be very different from Mario and Dr. Mario)
3. Shovel Knight
2. Banjo and Kazooie (This is the most unlikely one, but Microsoft has been the more friendly rival company to Nintendo, so I can dream).
1. Captian Toad(I feel like he could be a very unique character, he could be like Little Mac and have a poor air game but maybe have a special that makes him more playable than Mac. As for everything else, he could maybe use a minecart, throw turnips, use his pickaxe, there’s a lot of stuff he could do).

Haha! Yeah, Microsoft seem to be aligning themselves more and more with Nintendo these days - so I'm dreaming the same dream!

In no particular order...

1) Ice Climbers
2) K. Rool
3) Snake
4) Another Animal Crossing character. Tom Nook would be my pick but he's in Villager's Final Smash so...Resetti?
5) Impa (Hyrule Warriors version)
6) Masked Lumen or any other Bayonetta rep
7) Paper Mario
8) Crash Bandicoot / Rayman (or both. I think one of them will be in there for sure)
9) Bandana Dee
10) Another Metroid character. Not very familiar with the series but it really needs more than two Samuses.

My dream character would be Young Link from Majora's Mask where he could transform into Deku, Goron, and Zora Link but I highly doubt that'll happen.

Additionally, keep every first party character from Smash 4 except for, maybe, one Fire Emblem character.

Currently playing: Bayonetta 2

Don’t play with my Emotions like that 😂 It would make no sense but I would love it.

I don't hold much hope for western third party game mascots appearing.

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

@TheTetrisGuy Haha! Yeah, that's as unlikely as it gets! (If it happens, I'll eat my - erm - Stormtrooper helmet!) ..but man it would be cool - so, so cool!

@Kinoen I'm a traditionalist I did not want to go crazy thinking about obscure or new characters only because many of my favourites are going to be in the game for sure, I just answered the question and wrote my top 10 list.

I used to be a ripple user like you, then I took The Arrow in the knee

BlueWaterball

1: Cappy
2: Tiara
3: Captain Toad
4: Classic Sonic
5: Crash
6: Rayman
7: Snip
8: Clip
9: Snake
10: Classic Tails

Except for the first two, everything else is in random order. It's hard for me to pick favorites, and these are ones who I'd want in the game, and would probably be the most fitting

1. Spring Man

2. Ribbon Girl

3. Bomber Man (though if Snake got into the latest one, I'd be fine letting him stay as the sole Konami rep)

4. Crash Bandicoot (He's had some rough outings, but he was a pretty big deal, and made a big come back with the N. Sane Trilogy... plus, it would just be cool to have ANOTHER big mascot in Smash)

5. Shovel Knight

6. Dillion (Dillon's Rolling Western)

7. Tempo (Harmoknight)

8. Waluigi

9. Snip and Clip (Snipper Clips)

10. Bandana Waddle Dee

@Agriculture
I would like Alien over Predator myself, but find it less likely to happen since they are already cameos in Mortal Kombat.

@Yorumi
I would be very upset o3o The more the merrier! Especially since Birdo still isn't in it >_>

@NaviAndMii
Oh dang, totally forgot about Yooka-Laylee!

@Xaldin
Hmmm, that would fit the "obscure Nintendo game" rep for sure...just best not over-take a spot from Birdo >.>

@TheTetrisGuy
Yoooo, since Sonic Forces is a thing, an OC is very likely.

@NaviAndMii
Have they? I mean I wouldn't doubt it to much seeing as Microsoft is doing very poorly with their system sales this gen. and Nintendo is killing it.

@LuckyLand
Noted~
I just feel the need to reply though xD I can stop if you want

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.

Dude, Feraligatr would be absolutely awesome.

Tiefseemiez

(no specific order)
1. Amaterasu (Okami)
2. Nia + Dromarch or Rex + Pyra/Mythra (Xenoblade Chronicles 2, the former I like better, the latter is more likely)
3. Shantae
4. Revali (Zelda Breath of the Wild; would be nice for him to be able to battle it out with Link)
5. King Boo (Mario games)
6. Rabbid Mario (Mario&Rabbids) and Cappy Mario (Mario Odyssey) instead of normal Mario
7. Monster Hunter (Monster Hunter, with a Felyne sidekick of course!)
8. Phoenix Wright/Apollo Justice (Ace Attorney)
9. Piper/Dorothy/Rusty (Steamworld Dig/Heist)
10. Wilson (Don't Starve)

I would have added the Inkling, but they are already confirmed.
I would also like to see someone from the Arms series, but I take that somehow as a given.
Also I would assume that there will be a new Fire Emblem character from the upcoming game.
Though I like Robin and Corrin, I would expect them to be kicked off the roster for that new character.
I would like especially Bayonetta to remain, same as Bowser Junior, Link and Zelda in Breath of the Wild forms, Toon Link (or as above mentioned swapped out with Child Link), Wario.

Never want to come down, never want to put my feet back down on the ground.

Bear with me, we're going to get into "sliver of a chance" territory with some of these.

1) Papyrus (Undertale) - Yeah, I'm gonna be that guy.

2) Professor Layton (Professor Layton) - I think he'd be a remarkably unique addition, and I think his series is important enough (specifically within the handheld scene) to warrant his inclusion.

3) Jimmy T. (WarioWare) - WarioWare is one of my all-time favorite series, and I'd be ecstatic for anyone from it to be included. Jimmy would be my first choice though. Can you IMAGINE those taunts??

4) Ridley (Metroid) - Again, I'm gonna be that guy.

5) Paper Mario (Paper Mario) - This has always seemed like the most obvious inclusion in the world to me; I'm surprised he's never been in the Smash roster. The moveset options are robust, to say the least.

6) King K. Rool (Donkey Kong Country). The fight against him at the end of Donkey Kong Country 2 is one of my all-time favorite boss battles. If they ever include him in Smash, I'll definitely opt for the Kaptain K. Rool outfit every time, so long as it's an option.

7) Muddy Mole (Mole Mania). This is such a fantastic game, and I'm sad it never received any kind of follow-up. If Muddy were to get a chance to shine in Smash, though, all would be forgiven.

8) Jeff (EarthBound). I always felt like his moveset could be a blast, given all of the gadgets he has at his disposal. For his Up-B, he could even get a lift back onstage from Bubble Monkey!

9) Chibi-Robo (Chibi-Robo). I always had a soft spot for this little guy.

10) Crono (Chrono Trigger). I actually didn't play Chrono Trigger until about two years ago, but I must say, it's held up incredibly well. Crono would be an excellent candidate for Smash, and undoubtedly one of the third-party characters that would get the biggest reaction from me.

Hmmm here goes. Most of these are pretty typical but that's just because they'd be awesome. Also I'm picking realistic options (no Geno for instance, I just don't see it happening).

1. Isaac/Felix from Golden Sun.
2. King K. Rool from DK...because we need more than just the Kongs.
3. Rex & Pyra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (I'm going to cheat here and just add that I'd like Tora and Poppi as well, but I'm not holding my breath.
4. Urbosa from BotW
5. Protoman - Megaman Series
6. Twintelle from Arms
7. Dark Samus just because I'm assuming she'll be in Prime 4.
8. Travis Touchdown from No more Heroes. Not that farfetched.
9. Crash Bandicoot from...well, himself. It would have been a fever dream a few days ago but now it's possible.
10. THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE NINTENDO PLEASE Waluigi. Just please let us play him.

Oh sure It often looks to me like Microsoft are trying to position themselves as the ideal 'second console' for Nintendo owners - they're often full of praise for Nintendo, particularly when it comes to things like cross-network play etc (with things like the Minecraft 'Better Together' update bringing the two networks closer together - and leaving Sony behind) ..I'm sure they'd love a gaming future where Nintendo and themselves could co-exist in a market - and cut Sony out of the loop altogether in the process!

It's obviously little more than a pipe-dream at this stage, but I could possibly see Microsoft bringing Rare Replay to Switch, for example - building another bridge and further strengthening that bond...and, who knows, maybe even allowing some of the old Rare characters (so heavily linked to Nintendo in peoples' minds) to appear in Smash?

Of course, I could be reading WAY too much in to this whole thing! ..but, at the same time, I could kind of see how it could work (and have benefits for both) so I do think there's a chance

@Kinoen I'm aware. Can't do a Top 10 wishlist characters for Smash without mentioning my hope of it retaining Smash 4's large roster.
