No... I don't see a reason for it to stay in Smash other than tradition.

Isn't that why Ness is in too? It's not like he's had a game recently.

Yeah, but It's good to have someone to represent the Earthbound franchise.

I was actually working on a fake CSS (Character Select Screen) too. I never finished it, because lazyness and all, but I did finish the roster part, so eh, here goes.

 

It's pretty much a mixture of 1. what I wanna see, 2. what many people want to see, and 3. what's likely. That's why it ranges all the way from 'characters I don't even like' to 'obvious picks' to 'total wet dream wishlist'.

So why did you include Wii Fit Trainer?

Captain Falcon... Smash Mascot. Wtf?

It's because he appears much more in Smash than on F-Zero, and most people only know him because of the Smash series.

Cold hard facts just broke my heart.

I think that Master Hand is much more fitting as a mascot, though.

I'm not actually saying he's the mascot of the series, guys. It's a joke.

Because she's a unique character with an interesting playstyle, I see no reason to drop her. Sure, maybe saying I "want her" is a bit too much, but I sure don't want her out or anything. I didn't drop nearly any characters in this list, the only one I can even remember is Lucina and she would of course be in the game as a Marth alt ideally.

That said, maybe I should swap WFT with Duck Hunt, as she fits the 'joke character section' better (not that Duck Hunt isn't a joke character too).

Personally I would remove some characters from that list for selfish reasons. Characters such as R.O.B. or Sonic or Corrin for example, I hate them and I don't think they deserve to be in Smash, but I can respect that they have a unique moveset and they shouldn't be dropped for that alone. Of course, it's not like my list is gonna determine what's in the game, but I did make it with the intent of it being sort of a "definitive" roster for everyone.



No primary ZSS and no Cloud would be a game killer for me if smash 5 doesn’t have them.

That being said, Cloud was on a Nintendo platform in KH chain of memories, the theatre rhythm games and a few others I think.

Whoa take it easy on R.O.B.  He is more significant than most lowbies in Smash.  R.O.B. is main reason why Nintendo was able to sneak the NES into stores in USA at first due to the stigma of video game consoles following the early 80s crash in USA.  I have no problem takings alts out of the game like Lucina.  Corrin?  Who gives a shit about him?  I think they put too many Fire Emblem people in Smash recently (this coming from someone that enjoys Fire Emblem a lot).  Sonic would be more controversial in removing due to him being more of a star power than most newcomers in Smash. 

I just latched onto Wii Fit Trainer because Wii Fit is no longer a thing and was only helpful for Nintendo sales during Wii era.  Did nothing to help Wii U sales because people were done with it by then.

It wasn't too relevant in 2014 either. Wii Fit Trainer is a joke character, and even if she's only a joke of her time, she still fits the bill. If anything, when it comes to modern day relevance, most people have no idea who R.O.B. or G&W are either.

In any case, those were my reasons. I agree there have been too many Fire Emblem characters and Corrin sucks, but he/she does have a unique playstyle and some really creative moves (the most notable of which is also broken ass garbage), and is a pretty relevant character in the metagame which means plenty of people main him/her and would be annoyed if the character was simply dropped. If anything, what I'm not fine with is Fire Emblem having as many characters as Pokémon and more than Zelda - but in my roster, Pokémon and Zelda would have 7 characters each and Fire Emblem would be down to 5, so it doesn't bother me too much.
