Forums - Nintendo Discussion - VGChartz Most Wanted Newcomers for Smash Switch. Over 90 unique entrants!

Should Rex, Pyra, and Mythra be counted all as one character, or separate?

All as one 23 71.88%
 
Separate characters 9 28.13%
 
Total:32

I'm somewhat amazed this hasn't been done yet, but regardless it's rather simple. Top 5 most wanted newcomers for Smash Switch, regardless of likelihood or ownership so 3rd parties are welcome! I'll probably keep this going until sometime in April. I imagine that since the obvious one has already been revealed that I should get some interesting and varied results, right? I'm greatly looking forward to the ratio between first party to third.

 

RANKING MATTERS. I will tally votes simply as such, #1 gets 5 pts, #2 gets 4 pts, #3 gets 3 pts, etc. RANKING MATTERS. NO RANKING = EACH CHARACTER GETS 1 POINT

- NEWCOMERS ONLY. No vets from previous games that didn't return for WiiU/3DS. I don't want to see any Snakes, Wolfs or Ice Climbers, people! 

- ALT FORMS. Since I'm sure it'll be asked, alternate forms of characters can be stated as long as they're not clones of whatever the base character is. For example, Paper Mario, Wolf Link. Skyward Sword Link where the only difference is aesthetic and a different side-special DOES NOT COUNT. If you're unsure, please ask. I have no life and will be monitoring frequently.

NO PM = NO CHANGES! PM if you have a change of heart and want to change your list. Include the original list and the revised one. 

- GO NUTS. While I would encourage variety, it's up to you how your list is constructed. You want your top 5 to be the bros of Final Fantasy XV and Kratos, by all means.

- OPEN DISCUSSION IS ENCOURAGED. Just because you post something that is unlikely doesn't mean you can't discuss why it should/shouldn't happen. That being said...

- BE CIVIL. It's a list of characters for a video game we know next to nothing about. No need to be mean :)

 

I'll start us off.

1. Sora (Kingdom Hearts)

2. Nia (Xenoblade Chronicles 2)

3. Dr Eggman (Sonic the Hedgehog)

4. Fawful (Mario & Luigi)

5. Linkle (Hyrule Warriors)

EDIT: TO EVERYONE VOTING FOR EITHER REX, PYRA, MYTHRA, OR SOME COMBINATION THEREOF: PLEASE vote in the poll.

4. Dark Samus (Metroid Prime)

Dark Samus is such an underrated and good choice! 



1. Shantae (Shantae series)
2. Doom Guy (Doom series)
3. Waluigi (Mario series)
4. King K. Roon (Donkey Kong series)
5. Tetris Blocks (Tetris series)

I would also love a Female Pokemon Trainer different from Red. Maybe Mudkip, Grovyle and Blaziken would be a great combo, but it's technically a different version of an old character, so...



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

1. Waluigi
2. King K Rool
3. Shovel Knight
4. Ridley, I still have hope :(
5. Rayman
