Poll: Which is Your Favourite Super Smash Bros. Challenger So Far?

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

This week's reveal brought us to 36 in the roster

There's little doubt over what counts as this week's most exciting event, from the perspectives of many Nintendo gamers. The company decided to build hype levels by announcing a special Super Smash Bros. reveal video, and the three minute live broadcast delivered a slickly animated sequence in which three new Challengers were introduced — Captain Falcon, Lucina and Robin, with Chrom making a cameo as a Final Smash. That takes us up to four characters — five if you count Robin's male and female options — from the Fire Emblem franchise, and reminds us that F-Zero, despite its ongoing position on the sidelines in Nintendo's catalogue, is still loved enough to appear in the mascot battling titles on Wii U and 3DS.

If you did miss that video, or simply want to watch it again, it's below.

Those additions mean we're now up to 36 characters, or 38 if you want to count the three classes of Mii Fighters separately. Super Smash Bros. Brawl was considered meaty at 35 characters, though the number could be considered higher depending on your interpretation of characters that transform into each other — such as Samus to Zero Suit Samus — or the fighters available through the Pokémon Trainer. Thankfully matters have been kept a little simpler with the Wii U and 3DS entries, with Zero Suit Samus Sheik getting their own spots on the roster. There's still some area for debate over the current numbers, however — the flat number to date is 36, but incorporating the three classes of Mii Fighter (Gunner, Brawler and Swordfighter) takes the number up to 38, though we think it'd be a stretch to argue that gender swaps in others (Wii Fit Trainer, Robin and Villager) represent different fighters, as their moves and strengths are identical.

It seems, then, that Sakurai-san is a workaholic, with no suggestion that this is the final line-up — we'd bet there'll be at least one more major reveal prior to the 3DS version's launch in October. Let's also consider that Nintendo plans to release an amiibo toy for every character — those without a lot of cash will likely need to be picky, and Nintendo has a lot of work on if it's to meet that goal and produce enough toys.

While we wait for the final roster to be pinned down, we thought this would be a good opportunity to take stock of the line-up and learn which of the fighters have you most excited. We want to know which of this week's reveals pushed your buttons the most, which of the Newcomers have captured your imagination, how many amiibo toys you think you'll buy — with prices potentially comparable to Skylanders and Disney Infinity equivalents — and, finally, who's your favourite right now? Naturally these choices are down to which you simply want to choose, as we've not had the opportunity to find a favourite to suit our play-styles — that'll have to wait for another day.

As a note, we've taken our cues from the official website — if it's good enough for Sakurai-san, it's good enough for us. In the Newcomers list, we've left out those that appeared in previous games as transformations or through other means, such as the aforementioned Pokémon Trainer.

Share you choices in the polls and, of course, feel free to debate the merits of the roster — and who you feel has to be added — in the comments section.

I'm excited about PALUTENA!!!!!!

I'm also excited about Robin and Lucina (and I haven't even played FE:A), and Villager...and Wii Fit Trainer.

Plus I like Pikachu, Pit, Peach, Zelda, Sheik, Kirby and Olimar!

VILLAGER HYPE! :D

As for the Amiibos, I chose the option that I will get as many as I can afford. However, I will - one day in the distant future - own them all. I have other video game things that I want to invest in.

Luigi and Robin are the only two people that will make Smash the thing for me. Chould mabye buy some amibo's, just for curiosity sake.

Oh, and I can't forget I main the Mario characters.

Tsurii897

Tsurii897 said:

hmm..
Favourite in the last trailer..urgh..Lucina. I love that she made it into the game, BUT (and this is a huge one) I'm kinda torn on her being a just "a second Marth". I never liked Marth or his moveset at all. I think the change for Lucina's sword could change this a bit, tho. Robin was cool, too and Falcon was obvious (and he's just awesome), but I like Lucina as a character most out of those 3.

Favourite newcomer has to be Greninja. It looks like it'll play exactly how I like it most: fast combos and lots of dodging and jumping around :D

I will only get 2 amiibos. IF they're even going to make those 2: Lucina and Ike. I think Lucina was semi-confirmed with that amiibo picture, they'd shown multiple times (I even predicted her to be in Smash because of it actually ;) ) and I really hope I'll be able to have an Ike "tamagotchi" lol

My overall favourite character is - as you would probably guess - Ike. Just love his moveset and I really like that they're using a more recent design for him.

Mega Man and Pit will definitely be mains for me! I'll probably also main Palutena, Link, Robin, Marth and/or Lucina, and Sheik.

From the three revealed this week I chose Captain Falcon. The Fire Emblem chars look cool, but since I never played any FE, seeing Falcon back was more exciting for me, even though it was pretty obvious he would be back.

Favorite newcomer so far, Greninja. I just love this guy, it's one of my all-time favorite Pokémon designs, and it looks really fun to play as him/she/it. Palutena is a close second.

Favorite character overall is Mario. I like the classics, and I have this little rule that the first time I play a new SSB game, I use Mario in the first match. So I'm looking foward to that.

About Amiibos... if I lived on a place where games and game related items had decent prizes, I would buy a bunch. But since these things are crazy expensive here, I may not buy a single amiibo. I do want some, though.

2 dozen amiibos on my wish list. But I'll probably get a dozen first which other games will make use of them. (Mario & co mostly)

As for favorite fighter, I am liking Zero Suit Samus for being all-rounder.

@Haxonberik his final smash could be that skill where the Monado's blade extends and he slashes downward (don't remember the name, played it with Japanese voices). That'd clear out some opponents well!

I really love Lucina, she's cool, but yeah the whole Marth clone thing is annoying...

I plan on buying the more "realistic" amiibos like Zelda, Link, Samus, Pit and the Fire emblem guys, along with some of the cuter designs like Megaman, Pikachu and Ness, ill get around 10 of them... If I can afford it :(

I see the first one as "I want them all", and the second one as "as many as I can, but not all of them". Even if you can afford them, I find it hard for anyone to want each and every figure.

@sinalefa yeah but... one option is you are going to "TRY" and get them all (if i can afford them) and the other is, I am going to get as many as I can afford so in other words, I am going to "TRY" and get them all if i can afford them.

Went with Pac Man for the absurdity of it all, and the tip of the hat to very old school video games. I can appreciate all the MegaMan votes for the same reason but I really don't know him all that well.

Caryslan

#51

Caryslan said:

Pac-Man is my top newcomer. Mega Man is cool and all, but he's not the icon Pac-Man is, plus Pac looks like he has a cool moveset where he pulls out old Namco arcade characters to attack opponents.

The other newcomers are great, but there is no beating the first icon of Gaming joining Smash. Especially when he has such a great looking moveset.

dinosauryoshi

dinosauryoshi said:

I was pretty certain Falcon would be back anyway (although I'm glad it's confirmed) so I'm going to go with Lucina as my favourite announcement this week. She looks cool. As for favourites I really can't decide. Should they decide to include Cranky Kong he'll pretty much instantly be my favourite but as it is I'll have to wait for the actual game to come out until I can decide. Really hyped for this game now!

sketchturner said:

Metroid is my favorite series, so obviously Samus is my choice.Mega Man is my favorite newcomer.
If Jigglypuff is announced, that will be my favorite fighter. As cool as Samus is, beating people with a pink puff and bow is so awesomely degrading.

I think I'll pass on all the amiibos if they don't really do anything for the games supported that makes them worthwhile... I'll need to know more how amiibo works in Smash also factoring costs of each amiibo.

Hmm I might just buy one or two amiibo figurines of my favourite characters.

In favourite newcomer SO FAR I would say, Mega Man and favourite character SO FAR is Ike. (I think you got my point)

Still waiting for the mighty earth adept from my favourite RPG though :D

I can't decide!! Rosalina, Villager, Wii Fit Trainer, Mii Gunner, Mii Brawler, Pac - Man, Palutena, Robin so many newcomers I love!! And the Kirby, Samus, Zero Suit Samus, Zelda, Peach, Luigi, Toon Link
AAAARGH! So many choices!
The only one I could answer was the Amiibo one, I will try to get six and if I can get more, I'll definetly will! But the first ones I must get will be Kirby, Villager, Wii Fit Tainer, Zero Suit Samus, Rosalina And Luma and Samus. :D

I voted for pac man as he's been my favourite video game character for 30 years.
I also picked try to buy all amiibos but it should really say will buy all because there will be no trying involved I've already banked the money for them nice collectors items & even though I've never been a big fan of smash bros I'll still be getting it day 1.

HyperSonicEXE said:

MEGA-LINA, BABY
I've been using Fox and then Falco since the first, but I'm definitely going to be spending some time with Mega Man and Rosalina, see if I can't get either one of them going.

I can see Mega Man's A attack while moving being VERY OP in battles in general.

As for the Amiibos, I REALLY want to show my support for Mega Man, and also Rosalina, so probably just those two. Although, a candid shot of the Peach Amiibo going around on the internet might have me spring for a third one... ;)

Spoony_Tech

Spoony_Tech said:

I think the consensus says more outside characters are needed. Yes I picked Mega Man twice and if he wasn't there I would've picked Pac Man twice.

Why UBISoft hasn't pushed for Rayman to be playable is beyond me. It could definitely add sales to the current game and make people more interested!

Captain_Toad

#75

Captain_Toad said:

Heh, as much as I liked Robin's tome and sword combo I have to go with Lucina. Ya, she's a marth clone but she begginner friendly.

My favorite newcomer so far is Rosalina. And challenger is Olimar.

NintyMan

#76

NintyMan said:

Little Mac is my favorite newcomer so far. He should have been in the Super Smash Bros. series since the beginning, being the original Nintendo fighter.

With the amiibo figures, I plan on getting at least my favorites, but I may also get as many as I can afford.

My favorite character for the new games is more than likely going to be Donkey Kong. He's been one of my favorite characters throughout the series and I don't see that changing this time.

People love their Mega Man (I probably will, too, but there are others I want to try first). The characters I'm most excited to play as are:

4. Mega Man
5. Rosalina & Luma

1. Captain Falcon

This list is based off of CONFIRMED characters. If Meta Knight is confirmed, he would probably be at #3.

It's so hard to choose just one character, they're all great in their own way...Though as far as newcomers go, Robin and Mega Man are the ones I'm most eager to play as.
As for challengers overall, Luigi, Ike, Toon Link, Sonic and Olimar are big favorites of mine...Again, it's just so hard to choose just one! Heck, the entire Smash Bros roster so far is shaping up to be the best in the series.

Despite the presence of a fair bit of awesome characters, there are still a lot of guys I'm waiting for. I mean, Ice Climbers, Ness, Wario, Mr. Game And Watch, Meta Knight, Falco... add Isaac as a newcomer and I'd be okay - it helps a lot that almost all of my Brawl mains have returned, though: Luigi, Toon Link and Sonic, with one third of the remaining character (Pokémon Trainer, obviously) returning as well thanks to Charizard.

My thoughts:

Falcon was the coolest in that trailer.

I'm excited for most newcomers,but I chose Pacman, despite not really being a fan of his games, more for the epicness of having Mario and Sonic and Pacman in a game together. Couldn't really care less about Greninja or Villager, and a tad disappointed in Lucina, but otherwise, happy with all newcomers.

I don't plan on buying any Amiibo. They won't factor into competitive play, and the concept looks kinda dumb to me (like an easy way for them to grab money).

As for returns, though they screwed him up, Marth is still my favorite character, and I hope they realize that they made him too slow before the game gets released.

Bassman_Q

#107

Bassman_Q said:

I'm really excited to play as Lucina, even if she is sort of a clone of Marth. In the past Smash Bros. games, I simply refused to play as Marth (since his game, Shadow Dragon, was pretty horrible in comparison to other FE games), but now I can finally play a fast FE character with Lucina! :D

The-Chosen-one said:

i liked the trailer where Captain falcon looked extremely powerful (like the superman or hulk from Nintendo lol)
I'm Always a fan of link. i really cant decide i love all the characters.

so my list is:

Link, Megaman, mario, Captain falcon, ike, Samus, Sheik, Pit and palutina

My favorite newly shown character is probably Robin, since his/her moveset's really unique. I'm not sure how often I'll play as Robin, though. My favorite newcomer, as well as character so far, is definitely Greninja! Ness would be my favorite so far, but he hasn't been shown yet (I know he'll still be in, though).

MixMasterMudkip said:

@noctowl What are you talking about? Lucina is a clone. A clone is a character with similar properties to an existing character. Honestly, she's the biggest clone out of all of them as she was planned to be an alt to Marth to begin with, but developed into her own.

Dpullam

#126

Dpullam said:

It's a very tough call for me, but I'd have to go with either Lucina, The Villager, or Mega Man. I simply can't just pick one character! Characters like those make me very eager to play Super Smash Bros Wii U. Day one!

My favorite newcomer is Lucina. I am HYPED for her, Robin, Palutena, Mega Man, Pac-Man, Little Mac, and Rosalina being in the game. I can't wait to use all of them. Villager, Greninja, Mii, and Wii Fit Trainer look cool, too.

As for my favorite character overall, Sonic. He's my favorite video game character. He was my main in Brawl, and he's going to be my main here... However, I'm planning on using Lucina, Mega Man, Palutena and Pac-Man a whole lot, too!

Long story short: A lot of my favorite characters are in these games, and I can't wait for them to come out!

FlaygletheBagel

#139

FlaygletheBagel said:

Favorite in the last reveal is Robin by far. Never been a big Captain Falcon user. My favorite newcomer so far is Little Mac, and my favorite character in general is Mario. Not the typical choice, I know, and they nerfed him in Brawl, but I grew up playing as him in every installment. I'll give him a try before anyone else when I play Wii U/3DS.

FlappyFalco

FlappyFalco said:

1.Villager (very interesting, Pocket and Rocket moves look fun)
2.Mii times Trii (has the "make your own" thing while still having references to their own games)
3.Pac-Man (great personality, summoning minions looks fun)
4.Little Mac (powerhouse, like the character, dat hoodie)
5.Mega Man (moveset represents him very well, ranged A attacks look interesting)
6.WFT (interesting moveset, I like that the male is playable too)
7.Greninja (the trailer fake out where we were led to believe it was Mewtwo has left a bad taste in the mouth, interesting playstyle nonetheless)
8.Lucina (while I would have prefered Chrom, after learning that she didn't take up that much development time, I might use her over Marth)
9.Robin (too gimmicky, the whole "limited ammo" thing doesn't sound like it'll work very well)
10.Rosalina&Luma (I don't like the character and don't see why she was chosen over Toad and Waluigi, and again,looks too gimmicky+hard to control)
11.Palutena (moveset(s) look boring, personality doesn't seem to have been brought over, and that running animation looks, err.., awkward.

MEH MEH MEH. The number of fire emblem characters in this game... TOO DAMN HIGH!

But then again I think one fire emblem character in smash bros is too much.

Too many damn humans or human like characters.

Dillon and Midna not being playable in favor for characters like Robin and Palutena is down right blasphemy.

I'm still hoping for Doshin, but it won't happen probably. There's some others I hope to see announced (Bomberman and Astro Boy (the latter not as important gaming wise, still...) for instance), but it has a lot of the historically most important gaming characters already, so I can't decide which one is my favourite. If Toon Link has an Ezlo hat costume, probably that one.

@Hernandez Yeah Hilda would be awesome! Maybe Hyrule Warriors?

Favorite fighter: Ike

Favorite announced in the recent direct: Lucina

Favorite newcomer: Mega Man

No amiibo statues.

@Tsurii897 Ike's my favorite fighter too! Nothing feels better than pummeling somebody with one of his heavy hitting smash attacks!

Wii Fit Trainer basically means you're playing as the Wii mascot. WII FTW.

Lucina all the way, man! Playing as my waifu will allow me to live out all my dreams, once someone exports the character model - wait, what?

I can't decide on the favorite newcomer or favorite challenger! UGH. I liked Robin the best this week though and I'll try to buy as much Amiibo as I can.

I couldn't pick just one for most of these, but I definitely am excited for every addition. And those amiibos just look too amazing to pass up on.

Gotta say I really love Little Mac. Though Robin, Palutena, and Villager are also some favorites of mine.

While playing the demo i loved Greninja but am also a big fan of Megaman and once u learn their move sets…i was knockin people out left and right until my so knocked me out of course…

As far as Amiibo figures i love all these Nintendo figures and since im also a collector im going to buy them all…sounds silly honestly but pretty awesome nonetheless…if they had W101 or Bayonetta Amiibo figures i'd probably lose my mind!

I wasn't too excited about any of the newcomers until Robin was announced. Now, looking back on the roster I realize that these are some really strong newcomers. Villager (awesome), Wii Fit Trainer (looks like my playing style), Robin (holy crap...more Fire Emblem love), Rosalina (one of my favorite Nintendo characters), Pac Man and Mega Man (classic), Little Mac (a unique character), and Greninja (badass Pokemon)...this is gonna be a blast to play.

I couldn't decide! I like them all so much :3

cannot wait for this game to come out! I still play Melee on a regular basis, as a Go-To game when I have nothing else to play. Something about all of my favorite characters, all mashed up into one game... Nothing more fun! Even if I'm not the most skilled fighter.

And as far as the amiibo goes, I might have to buy all of them. I'll have to budget a good bit for it, but I'll have to make it work.

(This is one of those things that'll be worth $80 a piece in twenty years)

Though I am still holding out for a Isaac reveal, Mega Man was a nice surprise and I am sure I will have a good time mastering him!

The roster is great I believe. Although only recently I've been longing for Rayman to be invited to the party.

@SockoMario I know.... but given that she was separated from Samus, and they changed her final smash (which previously had some sort of suction feature to it) and they gave her a new recovery move (jet boots), she feels like a whole new character to me

Mega Man all day.

I screamed and jumped out of my chair during last year's E3 Mega Man reveal. And I don't think I was the only one.

I will try to get as many of my fave Amiibo figurines but I really like all of the characters, except the Fire Emblem ones (I have not played the games) which I don't hate I just don't know that well except for Marth and Ike

I'm probably in the minority here but (as much as I'd love the Ice Climbers to return) I'd be fine if we were looking at the final additions to the roster. This new Smash Bros looks to have a TON of content, comparable to Brawl, so I wouldn't complain if Sakurai had no one else left. Not saying I'm not open to hidden characters or more surprise reveals though... ;)

I have to wonder: Which characters revealed for Smash Bros 4 are default characters? How many of them are unlockables (like how Solid Snake and Sonic were in Brawl, despite the former being revealed on day one)?

I like Little Mac and Wii Fit Trainer; but I'll probably end up using Kirby most of the time.

I'd like to see Wario and Non-Specific Action Figure added.

I'm putting some cash aside starting today - I'm gonna get the majority of the Amiibo figures for Smash Bros.

chiefeagle02 said:

@unrandomsam Good call. Maybe Wario's an unlockable? I remember the Smash Bros. Dojo website was still revealing characters for Brawl even after it was released (came out March 9th, 2008. Last character reveal was March 31st).

Now if we're banking on game assets as clues for the roster, here is my hope for the Ice Climbers:

Poor Diddy Kong :( Villager and little Mac are my favourite new comers. I'll probably end up using Kirby like always lol can't wait!!

Mega Man! I never actually played a Mega man game until they showed him at E3 last year! I was curious, and so I played the first two games and they were awesome! So I bought more. Well... I love Mega man now. Some of you guys are saying Mega man has too many votes. Play his games... Then you will understand :)

I was really hyped for Megaman, then I saw some actually people using him and got a tad disappointed by how slow his attacks. BUT THEN ROBIN GOT ANNOUNCED. So hyped to play the mighty tactician.

Mega Man's the best newcomer, followed by Pac-Man. Two legitimate video game icons right there.

I'm actually impressed. The last question is obviously going to be your favorite character, (which for me is Fox since 1998) and I was surprised that for the most part, it's pretty much equal around the board.

Bet no-one can guess who I picked..... I may be crazy but if these Amiibo's are usable in other games i'll be ordering me a Mega Man one the moment it's released! I'm also interested to see how Robin & Pac Man will play too.. Also I'd still like to see Shulk in there, loved the Xeno series since way back to Xenogears on the PS1 & would love to see someone from that series represented in Smash.

I cannot believe how large this character roster is! They do not seem done with the announcements and I can only speculate that DLC might come later too. How can they keep them all balanced?
