My first thought is either Crash Bandicoot or Spyro the Dragon since both series are on the Switch now. Other than that, it would be cool to see Steve from Minecraft, Waluigi FINALLY, or even characters from other fighting series like Tekken, Soul Caliber, King of Fighters, or even another Capcom fighter. OOOOOOR if you really want to go out to left field, since Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is a Switch exclusive, bring in some Marvel characters!!!! :)
We already have had several Marvel fighting games, and as said again and again, no non-video game characters allowed in Smash.
Surprised Crash and/or Spyro weren't in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
Megaman in MvC 1/2 as well as Power Battles and Power Fighters. Kirby technically in that Kirby fighting game on 3DS. Could argue Donkey Kong based on the fighting minigame in DK64. Same for Diddy Kong. Don't think K.Rool was playable. Link in Soul Calibur II. Obviously Terry, Ryu, and Ken. Lucario, Charizard, and Pikachu in Pokken. I think Joker was in a Persona fighting game? Cloud in Ehrgeiz and Dissidia. All I could think of off the top of my head.
I never thought of the Mega Man arcade games as fighting games in the traditional sense, since you only play as 4 Mega Man heroes (if you can really call Bass heroic) against a series of previously fought Robot Masters.
There were Persona fighting games, but Joker wasn't there, as they were before Persona 5.
Also, Little Mac was in the GameCube version of Fight Night Round 2:
But the less said about his appearance here, the better.Last edited by CaptainExplosion - on 16 September 2019
