Topic: The characters that WON'T make it into Smash Ultimate

If the Smash Bros. Ballot from 2015 was any clue, it's obvious: Nintendo doesn't care about if X character or Y character will make into Smash Bros. Ultimate, and thus, I have created this...thing to clarify what characters won't make it in. You can have a reason for picking one, you can hilarious with your character choice, but either way, it won't get into Smash. Let's get the obvious out of the way: Waluigi, Goku, Every Indie Character, Baby Waluigi, Banjo-Kazooie, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Shrek, etc, etc.

EDIT: King K. Rool has just been confirmed, so I removed it from the list.

“Your Mom”. This titular schoolyard taunt-turned character was found to be 5 times larger than Andross as shown in Starfox 64. Unfortunately, while Ridley could be scaled and still appear larger than other characters, this particular entrant proved difficult to scale and still keep proper girth dimensions.
Sadly, the development team concluded that “Your Mom” is so fat that she couldn’t appear in SSBU.

Basically any character from a shonen action anime. Goku, Naruto, Ichigo, Luffy, Natsu, etc... As well as any character from western movies and comics like Batman, Luke Skywalker, Iron Man, etc...

Where am I going! Nowhere, unless if I say otherwise!

@EvilLucario Honestly, probably a greater change than the ones I mentioned. But still about as likely as Nintendo releasing all VC titles from all previous systems on the Switch tomorrow and making it so any you already bought you can download for free.

@Mrtoad Yeah, I was deemed too "OP" according to the development team.

At least I’ll be in the next Smash Bros.! RIGHT? RIGHT!?! RIGHT?!?!?!?!

Where am I going! Nowhere, unless if I say otherwise!

Toy_Link

Are you telling me that not just any character can’t get into Smash Ultimate? I’ll let Angelina Anaconda know that she isn’t welcome in Smash! She’d be Bayonetta levels OP.

If he did make it into smash his taunt should be him holding a localised copy of mother 3, then he throws it in a garbage bin.

@Mrtoad A KaBlam reference? Man it's been a long time.

Re: the OP, King K. Rool, Banjo-Kazooie, Spyro, and Crash are all possible. Highly unlikely, but they aren't impossible.

As for who actually doesn't stand a chance of getting in at the moment, let's look at more reasonable characters who actually have had their chances shot.
From Mario, Pauline and Birdo are both pretty much impossible this go around, due to being stage hazards
From LoZ: Anyone who's older than BotW/LBW and doesn't have a massive fan drive (Nabooru, Darunia, Ruto, Agatha, etc.) Really the only two older characters who are viable are Vaati and (younger) Impa, due to their importance and multiple appearances.
From Pokemon: Anyone from before Gen 7. We already have every gen 1 Pokemon with the star power to make it in, and there's no one major
From Donkey Kong: Any of the one shot wonder characters. Cranky, DK Jr., K.Rool, Dixie are all candidates of various likelihood, but not Chunky, Lanky, or Kiddy.
From Kid Icarus: It's unlikely we'll get any newcomer at all, but if we do it's hard to say any character is completely impossible.
From Metroid: Any of the one shot hunters (from Prime Hunters or Prime 3)
From Earthbound: Anyone party members from Earthbound, Anyone exclusive to Mother 3. Porky and Ninten really stand out as the most likely candidates, but theoretically another Earthbound Beginnings party member is viable still.
From Kirby: With it's huge cast of viable characters, we won't see someone without either modern presence or a huge fanbase and a viable moveset. So none of the animal friends (except an incredibly small chance for Gooey), no Zero or Dark Matter, no Adelaine or Ribbon, no one from Squeak Squad
From Star Fox: Anyone other than Peppy or Slippy isn't major enough (and not an AT) and those two are highly unlikely.
From F-Zero: Anyone other than Jody Summer, Blood Falcon, or Black Shadow, all of which are highly unlikely.
From Fire Emblem: Loads and loads of characters. Anyone other than Chrom from Awakening, anyone other than Hector or Elwood from Binding Blade, etc. Characters need serious clout to rise to the top of the list of options here.
From Pikmin: Uh... I don't think anyone is out here. Alph is still a costume swap, but semi-clones for Louie, Betty, Charlie or the President aren't out of the question, just unlikely.
From Splatoon: Anyone introduced in Splatoon 2. It's pretty clear Sakurai had no access to any materials regarding the sequel, so there's no way they'd be included. That leaves the highly unlikely characters of Captain Cuttlefish or DJ Octavious as the only viable ones.
From Xenoblade: Anyone from Xenoblade 2 (characters were chosen before the game even started development). Any party members from the original who are in Shulk's final smash (AKA most of them)

From unrepresented retro IPs: No one is out of the question, unless there's a far better candidate from their IP. Anyone other than Mike Jones from Startropics for example is pretty much impossible.
From Modern small IPs: Anyone from Codename S.T.E.A.M, is out, probably anyone from Pushmo/Pushblox as well. Dillon stands a remote chance as the most successful small IP, and Qbby would be an out of nowhere choice but still viable.
Wario: Anyone other than Jimmy T or Ashley. Sorry Captain Syrup fans

The remaining unrepresented IPs
IPs with stages: None of them have a chance of gaining characters due to lacking characters to begin with. That's Nintendogs, Pilotwings, Electroplankton. Other universes only have Miis, so no one new from Miitopia, Tamodachi, Wii Sports, etc.
Golden Sun: Isaac is highly unlikely, but possible. Felix and Matthew are even less likely, but not completely discountable.
Rhythm Heaven: Just about anyone is viable, due to having no true lead character.
ARMS: Not happening, too new.
Chibi-Robo: Anyone other than Chibi-Robo himself
Sin and Punishment: Probably anyone other than Saki or Achi

I think that about covers all the Nintendo characters at least.
EDIT: Note, this is only covering base roster, not DLC

Oh man, Pauline. I wished she was the new fighter for the Mario universe, but if she's a stage hazard then chances drop to 1% and well, at least we got Daisy!
So if not Pauline, and not Waluigi, could it be... Koopa Paratroopa?

From Donkey Kong, I'd say Funky has a good chance to be DK's Echo. Dixie deserves her own moveset.

From Zelda, my guess, eh, my wish is on Impa or True Midna, and Urbosa.

For StarFox I'm the same, Peppy and Slippy belong in there before anyone else, but I'm not opposed to Krystal (as she was in at least 2 good StarFox games already) and Katt Monroe from StarFox 64, SF Command, and SF Zero, - but Miyu and Fay from the recently released StarFox 2 would be the coolest ones.

From Earthbound: Unfortunately all seem deconfirmed except Flint and Ninten. So all my bets on those.

Yeah, for Pikmin they could do the same with Olimar what they did to Bowser Jr. and the Koopa Kids.

For Xenoblade, I say Cross&Elma and/or Rex&Pyra/Mythra.

Someone from Sin and Punishment would be great to have, as Treasure's first character and entry to Smash.
Chibi-Robo of course. I want him since Brawl.

I also think no chance for indies.

But I think the Tetromino can be a fantastic fighter. We already had Tetris music in SSB4. It's one of the biggest games of all time.

For Western companies Ubisoft and Microsoft have the biggest chance.
Ubisoft is a great partner, and Nintendo collaborated with them on Mario&Rabbids and Starlink. Either Rayman or the Rabbids could be a fighter.
Microsoft always wanted to get into Smash somehow, with Banjo-Kazooie. It's awesome and nostalgic and a nice throwback to one of Rare's best Nintendo games. And I would love to see the stage and remixes of the music. Could be a great fighter as well, similar to the Duck Hunt Duo. However, Steve from Minecraft would be the other interesting choice. Like in most parts of the world, it's also very popular in Japan. Minecraft is one of the best selling games of all time. Nintendo even made a Mario Mash Up Pack for Minecraft.

@SKTTR Good picks, but Krystal is an AT, otherwise I would have mentioned her. I'd prefer Katt over Krystal honestly, but I know I'm in the minority there.

I could see Flint as an Assist Trophy, but I highly doubt he'll be a new character. The only reason Ness came back in Brawl was that Sakurai didn't want to fully replace him with Lucas, with Mother 3 never having been localized after all. I find it hard to believe he'll put in another rep from a game that never made it to the west.

Totally forgot Funky in DK, he's the other one who stands a chance. But given that he wasn't playable in any of his (major) appearances back when the game started, it seems unlikely.

Alph was planned to be an echo/clone like the other three who were originally costumes, using rock Pikmin actually in Smash 4, so that might show up in this game in some form, who knows? But given that Alph is still a costume swap, it'd have to be as a different character entirely.
