Top 10 Nintendo Characters That Will Never Be Playable In the Super Smash Bros. Series

Rule #1: Video game characters only
Rule #2: Those that appeared on a Nintendo console
The Smash Bros. for 3DS & Wii U DLC is officially over. There are so many characters we wanted to win the ballot, but not all won. So, there's a chance this list I made will crush your hopes & dreams, or probably won't since the characters you wanted never made it, and they're already crushed.

The Top TenXW

1Ridley (Metroid series)

Two words for a reason: Too big
Masahiro Sakurai has said that Ridley is too big to be a playable character in Smash Bros. It's true.

2Princess Daisy (Super Mario series)

I'm not sure if its true, But she appeared in Melee as an Assist Trophy.

No, Melee didn't even use Assist Trophies, that concept came about in Brawl. She was, hoever, an ordinary trophy that did nothing.

3Toad (Super Mario series)Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a fictional character who primarily appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise.
4Waluigi (Super Mario series)

No, be an assist trophy is not an excuse, Little Mac was too and he's playable. The real reason is that he's useless: Wario has done more than him, Daisy has done more than him, Birdo has done more than him and even Toadette. He was just created for be Wario partner in tennis games.

5Excitebike Racer (Excitebike)

He makes more sense as an Assist Trophy anyway.

Melee: Originally planned to be a character, but they couldn't find a way to make the character properly jump
Brawl: Assist Trophy

6Goomba (Super Mario Series)V2 Comments
7Balloon Fighter

The Animal Crossing Villager's recovery move is the closest we'll ever get to this

8King K. Rool (Donkey Kong Country series)

Did u know he's a DLC costume in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS & Wii U? That's why he's not playable. He died & they used his body as DLC costume. Oh wait. Was that got nothing.

9Chibi-Robo (Chibi-Robo series)

Boring character from a niche franchise.

At least he can be an assist trophy.

10Chrom (Fire Emblem Awakening)

Sakuri stated that he doesn't want just another sword wielding Fire Emblem character.

The Contenders

11Mike Jones (StarTropics series)
12Ryota Hayami (Wave Race series)V1 Comment
13Mona (WarioWare)

She's not even an assist nor does she have a mere collectible trophy.

14Krystal (Star Fox series)

You have to be completely ignorant if you think she'd be another Fox clone.
Sakurai even said that, if she was added to the roster, Krystal would've had an original move set (the only reason she didn't appear was due to time constraints).

What I think she would be if she was playable:
1. A female clone of Fox
2. A palette swap character

15Masked Man (Mother 3)

He would most likely get an original move set. But really? Why are ness an Lucas the only characters from mother? Oh well. He was a great final boss. He got me sitting on the floor in my own tears.
