Minor characters are perfect for spinoffs of a single series, like Mario Kart (we both know smash is a different case), but they shouldn't be recurring characters in the main series of games. When was the last time you saw Daisy in a main series Mario game? Edit: I'm assuming you were talking about Rosalina and not how Mario Kart 8 feels a bit wierd, correct? You know, I would agree with you if Rosalina didn't actually look like she might be fun to play in SSB. They managed to make her and Luma a character at the same time in the game while making them look interesting. If she was just there by herself and didn't have a decent looking fighting mechanic, I'd agree 100%, but as it stands, I think she's a good addition. There's also the fact that all of these games let you pick other characters if you want. Even in 3D World you can choose to play as any of five characters and DK:Tropical Freeze lets you pick from four which is much more than the usual two. Much better than the usual deal in New SMB where it has been a choice between Mario, Luigi and two generic Toads. Then there's Smash and Mario Kart where you get a whole page of characters to pick from. Plus the fact that you're right, she's hardly a Peach clone.
