Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Smash 5 character roster wishlist

I decided to make a Sma5h roster wishlist. Is it original? Nope. Is it fun? Yep. I'll just put the list here and explain some character modifications, newcomers and characters I took out of the roster after that. This is what I want to happen, not what I think will happen.

Now my justifications:

=====CHARACTER MODIFICATIONS=====

 

  • Mario: Add moves that have to do with Cappy and things Mario can do in Mario Odyssey
  • Luigi: Add moves that have to do with his Balloon World from Mario Odyssey, to make his moveset a bit more unique
  • Wario: Change his clothes to match his traditional outfit, and let the biker outfit be an alternative
  • Link: Make a whole new moveset to match his Breath of the Wild self
  • Zelda: Change her outfit to match her appearance in BoTW and make some new moves/animations that relate to that game
  • Samus: Merge her and Zero Suit Samus again
  • Marth: Merge him and Lucina again
=====NEWCOMERS=====
  • Daisy: Her personality is unique among the princesses and her flower powers could warrant some cool moves.
  • Waluigi: He could represent the Mario Sports games, using tennis rackets, golf clubs, basketballs, etc.
  • Dixie Kong: Diddy feels kinda out of place without Dixie. Her moves could be a mixture of Diddy's moves with some original ones based on her hair.
  • Funky Kong: Do I even need to explain? He's the best of the Kongs. Would be cool to see him smashing people with his surfboard.
  • Daruk, Mipha, Revali and Urbosa: They all have different personalities and could use unique attacks, and they're very important in BoTW.
  • Lissa, Lyn and Tiki: I added them to change a bit the FE characters represented in Smash, and lessen the number of swordsmen.
  • Decidueye: A good representative of the 7th generation. Would also complete the type triangle in Smash.
  • Rex & Pyra: To represent Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Not my favourite characters from that game, but the most recognizable.
  • Inklings: Splatoon is one of the most successful new Nintendo IPs, so the Inkling have to (and will) be on the game.
  • Ice Climbers: Now that the 3DS is out of the way, just bring them back.
  • Spring Man: To market ARMS. Would be cool if his alternate costumes were different characters from that game.
  • Rabbids: I actually like them a lot in M+R KB. One single character could have different costumes to represent the different Rabbids.
  • Banjo-Kazooie: They're a big part of Nintendo's history and should be represented. Microsoft shouldn't have a problem with that.
  • Crash Bandicoot: Now that his games are coming to the Switch, I'd love to see him spinning in Smash too.
  • Bomberman: A classic character that's very tied to Nintendo platforms.
  • Shovel Knight: Would magnificently represent the Nindies, and Yacht Club Games seems to love Nintendo.
=====CHARACTERS NOT COMING BACK FROM SMASH 4=====
  • Dr. Mario: He's just a clone that no one really likes, I'd rather have him as an alternative costume to Mario.
  • Sheik: She has not appeared in the recent Zelda titles, I don't see why she should stay. Would be better to just incorporate some Sheik moves into Zelda's moveset.
  • Toon Link: Would contrast too much with the other Zelda characters I put in.
  • Ganondorf: Doesn't have an original moveset and doesn't appear in BoTW. He could stay in if Sakurai gave him original moves, though.
  • Zero Suit Samus: Merged with Samus.
  • Dark Pit: Do I even need to explain?
  • Ike and Roy: I wanted to change the FE representatives and lessen the number of swordsmen.
  • Lucina: Merged with Marth.
  • Jigglypuff: I know this won't happen, but he's too random of a Pokémon to be in the game. He's in just because of tradition.
  • Miis: The Wii era is over. Yes, there are Miis on the Switch, but it's too much of a Wii representative character to keep in.
  • Wii Fit Trainer: Not relevant anymore.
  • Cloud: Was never on a Nintendo platform, I don't even know why he was in in the first place.
  • Ryu: One Capcom character is enough.
Ps.: I know Lissa is holding an axe, not a hammer.
What do you think of my wishlist? What is your whishlist?

I have to take a second to appreciate how you took actual good renders of all the characters instead of shoddy jpegs of them, well done.

Yes, it is. Sorry if you didn't like it, but it wasn't really made for that purpose.
