What I really want:

Amaterasu - pretty much impossible as a somewhat irrelevant third-party character from a game that never sold well.
Hollow Knight - absolutely impossible, obviously.
Wolf Link & Midna - don't think they'd ever do this.


What I kinda want:

Impa - would be cool as an echo of Sheik for more Zelda representativity. They said no echoes, though.
Dixie - same as above


What I think is really likely:

Rex - sounds weird that it's the Mii costume you get for buying the DLC, probably a sort of promise.
FE Three Houses rep - they did it with Roy and Corrin, it's just what they do, isn't it?
Geno - the fanboys are crying so hard for this one it just has to happen at some point.


What I'm afraid of:

Steve - it's possible but please for the love of god no.
Rayman - really, really don't want this guy in my Smash.
Incineroar - oh, wait


Edit: have been editing the list as I remembered more stuff.

What's wrong with Rayman in Smash?



Some days I just blow up.

I just don't like him. He's a lame character in design. He's also a western third-party character, from Ubisoft nonetheless, and I don't think he's as relevant as some make him out to be - if anything I'd much rather have someone like Crash in before him.

Edit: and yeah, I did list a western third-party character as something I want, but that's because it's a character I like, obviously.

That's a pretty lame reason to not want someone in Smash.

Not liking the character is a lame reason? Lol whatever, then. To each their own.



I wish they had included fighters who'd represent generations 3 and 5 of Pokemon, like maybe Grovvile or Sceptile for Gen 3, and Zoroark for Gen 5.

1. Bandanna Dee - for a series whose most recent game brings back a ton of characters that most would assume got retconned out of existence, Kirby's representation in Smash Bros feels suspiciously small. and out of any of the characters that could join from the Kirby series, its most likely the one that was part of the starting 4 in Star Allies

2. Geno - we saw Geno for a split second during some flashes of Spirit characters, indicating that Sakurai knows fans still remember him. he was also a Mii Fighter skin in Smash 4, along with Inklings, K Rool, and Isabelle. the stage is pretty much set for him to come in as a new fighter

3. Rayman - Rayman got a trophy in Smash 4 which was a nice nod, but I am confident he will be a character this time around. mainly because he is not an assist trophy. In the assist trophy montages a ton of possible choices got axed- Isaac, Shadow, Black Knight, Bomberman, Waluigi, etc. Rayman was not though, and given that Ubisoft is one of the most supportive third parties for the Switch right now, i could totally see them lending the character to Smash Bros, especially since most of his moveset is already done.

4. Slime (Dragon Quest) - remember what Sakurai said- only those who are confident in the value of the fighter pass should buy it. thats why I really do think Slime will be in the roster. Nobody would suspect him, nobody would even be able to think of a moveset for him (much in the same vein as Piranha Plant), and yet he is still a very recognizable character from one of Japan's most popular series, and if ANY other Square Enix game were to get representation, it would be Dragon Quest.

5. Steve (Minecraft) - at this point, there is no barrier for entry that Minecraft does not exceed. Cloud got in Smash Bros before even being a character on a Nintendo platform. Piranha Plant got in despite nobody even suggesting him. Bayonetta got in and is not even that iconic of a video game series. Snake is returning along with Simon and Richter, who are from Konami, the company which has essentially sworn off AAA development. now look at Minecraft. excluding Tetris, Minecraft is the best selling video game of all time. Microsoft is even open to working with Nintendo to put characters in the game. and Steve actually has a ton of potential for a moveset. he has a sword, he can throw splash potions, he can place TNT, newer items in the game give him the ability to glide and hold a shield, and thats just scratching the surface. i will gladly eat my words if anyone can give me a reasonable excuse as to why he couldnt be in the game.

Because it would suck.



Sakurai on his twitter just said that DLC is finalized and was completely chosen by Nintendo. I think this raises the chances of the characters I picked, and lowers some of the characters like Geno

Also nintendo will pick the popular charcaters not in yet. So maybe like this...

 

1) Bandana Dee (Staple in Kirby series)

2) Dixie Kong

3) ARMS character (Minmin/Twintelle/Helix?)

4) Captain Toad (thrownin Toadette as Echo or alt)

5) Paper Mario

This must be one of the worst character lineups I've ever seen.
