Top Ten Most Wanted Super Smash Bros. 4 Newcomers

Super Smash Bros. is a successful game. Which one of these characters is the #1 most wanted.

The Top TenXW


The rival of Sonic, the only Sonic character to truly match his full speed. He's the ultimate life form in the games. Gave the ultimate sacrifice to save the Earth as a promise to Maria in SA2. The chaos abilities he used that can be incorporated into his move set: Chaos Control for recover Chaos Blast for Final Smash his close quarters moves in Shadow The Hedgehog Chaos Spear for Special attack his jet blades for movement. Besides, Smash Bros could use another Sonic character. Plus, he was one of the few characters to truly master the abilities of the Chaos Emeralds.

There needs to be more playable sonic characters

Shadow would kick ass because of his teleport and chaos spear would be a cool move in his moveset

I've been saying this for years!

I wanted Sora in Brawl so bad. I heard he was actually going to be in it, but apparently a lot of people felt they needed to make petitions about how he he didn't deserve to be there since "just having 1 Nintendo game doesn't make you eligible to be a part of SSB. " There are so many possibilities with Sora. He could have a randomly chosen Form for his final Smash or something even better. Then you have Riku, Ansem, can you imagine playing as Organization XI? That'd be so awesome! Look at all these possibilities! It's be a bad idea not to add KH in. Just my opinion.

Sora could get in with all of the Kingdom Hearts games being made for DS and also the Mario Sports Games w/ Square Enix

Sora would be the decent Mario Sports/Final Fantasy character besides Rosalina.

Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance is one of the best 3DS games right now. There was also Chain of Memories for GBA, and Days for DS. I also think his fighting style fits Smash Bros perfectly. If Snake and Sonic were able to get in, Sora can too. Plus - Sora isn't a depressing character, he has his sad story too, but most of the time he's a ball of happiness and a HUGE dork. And isn't smash after all just a bunch of lovely idiots? He really fits in there

Heck no! He should never be in the series. Keep Kingdom Hearts and Disney out of Super Smash Bros.

Mewtwo should never have been replaced from melee. It was an amazing character who simply needed some of his power transferred from damage dealing to livability.

Here are the facts. Mewtwo was planned for SSB 64, but cut due to hardware limitations. He made it in Melee. He was planned for SSB Brawl, but cut due to time constraints. And now, they are "thinking about" putting Mewtwo in SSB 4. It makes complete sense with Mewtwo being so well known, having his own movie, and now he's getting a mega evolution up in Pokemon X & Y! Mewtwo deserves to be in SSB 4 more than anything! Although he would need to be buffed up a bit, with heavier weight and almost completely new moves, but Mewtwo was at least intended to be in every Smash Bros game to date, so what are you doing Nintendo!? Mewtwo... Needs... IN!

It is super powerful

Guess what?! Mewtwo is in as DLC.

Megaman deserves to be #1. He has over 50 games sold. Almost all of them are for Nintendo. He should of been in Super Smash Bros Melee, let alone Brawl. Bottom line, if Megaman isn't int the next Super Smash Bros game, this world is done for. That's all I'm saying. GO MEGAMAN!

Megaman would kick so much butt it's unreal. Give him a few powerups and the chance to change his costume from original to X to. EXE then you have the potential for a new all time favourite in the Super Smash Bros Universe.

If you've played as him in Super Smash Flash 2, you'll know how powerful he is. So many powerful moves, awesome Final Smash, Who could be more powerful?

Guess what he's already in the game

Krystal will be an awesome character to put as a fourth StarFox Character in the new Smash Bros. Game! She would be a middle weight but lighter than Fox, but have her Assault clothes on. She could hit people with her staff and also shoot characters with her gatling gun. She is the top number one character on my list for the next Smash Bros. She should even overcome beating Mega-Man out of the next Smash Bros. Game. I don't like Mega Man! Over-all, she might pull two barriers from StarFox Assault to sheild herself from players, her telpathy would be sweet also! But to cause massave dammage would be the Super Ground Quake move from her staff. This hot character would come toe to toe to taking out plenty of characters out of the arena! ---Fox Rhea

It would be pretty awesome if they include Krystal in SSB4, she could use her staff and use the staff's power as Smash Attacks. Besides, they need to include a StarFox character that has different moves, I mean, Fox, Falco and Wolf have the same attacks, Wolf's may look different but it is still the same. And it would be great adding another Female character, because it is getting pretty boring having the same 3 1/2 characters since Melee, not to forget that she has a dedicated fanbase

Did anyone else notci that each Smash Bros game adds one new character? Maybe Nintendo wanted to do this throughout the entire series, and thought Wolf would be a better option for the game than Krystal. This might be the reason Krystal wasn't in Brawl. Going off logic, it's very likely Krystal will get into SSB4. - vgpuppybot

We should let Krystal fox should be in super smash bros 4 please put her in can you please put her in its kinda cool if I could play her in in the game

6King K Rool

It's about time this blunderbuss-wielding crazed crocodile squared off against his eternal rival Donkey Kong and fellow reptilian badass Bowser. With overwhelming popularity in both America and Japan, his playable appearance in SSB4 is imminent.

He has more potential for awesome attacks in a single boss fight than most characters do in their entire catalog of appearances. The Donkey Kong series should also get at least as many characters as the inferior Star Fox and Kirby series.

With Villains from other series like Mario, Zelda, Kirby and EVEN Star Fox I miss the true villain, which is of course King K Rool. He is the most natural fit Nintendo could ever make.

He is a unique character, has many moves and many costumes!

Come on, we're talking about the most iconic villain of Metroid. He's been in every smash bros game to date, and was so close to making it in Brawl. Heck, Sakurai was even interviewed regarding his absence he knows we want him in. Ridley was the one who made Samus who she was and has been in almost every Metroid game in some form or another. He is hands down the most obvious choice for a villain representative.

And don't "too big" me Olimar is the size of a quarter in his game resizing happens.

Why wouldn't you want to play as a plasma breathing cyborg space dragon?!

Ridley is the best choice for Metroid newcomer because : He appeared in a lot of Metroid games, he's the Samus's nemesis, he's intelligent ( despite his appearance ), we need a new Metroid representation ( Zero Suit Samus isn't a good representation because she's Samus ) and finally he's the only good new Metroid representation because Dark Samus and the bounty hunters aren't good.

Meta knight was a HUGE success in SSBB. Just imagine Meta Knight as a flying robotic dinosoar from hell. That gives you a glimpse at the potential and sheer awesomeness that Ridely possesses. Ridely is right up there with Mewtwo and Micaiah for my top 3 favorite newcomers for the next Super Smash Bros. Game, plus Ridley has a good chance of getting in either SSB Universe or/and SSB Memories!

He is not too big.

It's pretty clear Sonic is coming back, so why not have Tails as well?

I don't care how many people vote for characters that SHOULDN'T be in the next game (Cloud, Shadow, Goku, Master Chief?! ) or how many people don't vote for Tails this guy should be the next Sonic representative for Smash. He's my favorite Sonic character by far. His moveset could be a mix of his inventions, hand to hand hitting, and speed attacks.


If there were to be a second Sonic rep, Tails will be it. He seems to be a valid choice.

9Bowser Jr.

Come on... You gotta admit. That combo would pretty bad ass. Think right now, your at home, playing your new ssb4 game ( or whatever it would be called ), your on classic mode, you win, and then, -gasp -, there's a new Character, Bowser Jr. Who can transform to Shadow Mario. He'll ya, your thinking. Well, gosh DANG, Just imagine the cool moveset. Clawing, firebreathing, spinning across in your shell, then, when they lest expect it, WHOOSH, your shadow Mario, throwing goop, Teleporting, swinging the paintbrush, and for his final smash, if they don't remove it, he summons one of those polluted piranha on the stage.

this guy is the one with the best chance to be in a smash bros game

He's getting pretty mainstream and his Magic Paintbrush would be awesome... creating platforms in midair, trapping opponents in a corner, covering everyone in goop... - bore5

He is on it, and he's actually really good. - Garythesnail

I think Ghirahim would make a great character for SSB4. He is practically the BEST villain in LoZ History, and could have a great moveset as well. He could easily be put in as a lightweight character. His down B Attack could be sort of like Marth's except he block the attack with his fingers. His side B could be a short distanced teleport that leaves pixels that can damage other players when to close. His Up B could be the same except he goes more upwards. He could also wield a Dark Sword that could follow with his A attacks. His Final Smash could be him switching into his 3rd form with each of his attributes multiplying by 3 or him summoning Demise to help him in battle. If he does go into his 3rd form, his sword could turn into the huge sword like he wields in the 3rd battle and is side B could shoot a flame wheel towards the opponent that explodes on contact. This form could last for about 10 seconds before he switches back. For his B attack, he could shoot those red arrow projectiles he shoots at you in Skyward Sword. And his down B could include him changing into his 2nd form for about a second that releases a small wave of energy to damage opponents. And when Kirby sucks him up, Kirby could copy his hairstyle and his earrings. And when he enters the arena, he could simply teleport in. He'd most likely replace Ganondorf, but Smash Bros does need more villains anyways. And Ghirahim would make a perfect villain to be in Smash Bros. I honestly think Ghirahim would make a perfect and highly desired character for SSB4.

I think Ganondorf would be replaced by Ghirahim because In SSBB (Super Smash Bros. Brawl), All of the Legend Of Zelda Characters look like the characters from Twilight Princess, and Ganondorf was in Twilight Princess, BUT, people believe that all of Legend of Zelda Characters will look like from Skyward Sword, and Ganondorf was NOT in Skyward Sword, but Ghirahim is so that's why I think Ganondorf will be replaced by Ghirahim, also he was the worst character in Brawl (From the Tier List)

Who wouldn't want him

Ghirahim's final smash should be THE DIAMOND DEBBIE. Just kidding. I do think he would be a fun character to fight as. (Just not as a clone please. )

The Contenders


His final smash would make everyone turn blue and then he would eat them and their eyes would go off the screen and they would lose a life.

Pac man should totally be in smash bros for Nintendo 3ds in the 3ds version give him a fire ice chameleon and metal berry by the plus sign in the bottom left color for fighting try to add a little agility and flips in there and for the finall smash make him fly and chomp through enemy's in a time limit but let the player control the flying as fire pac let him shoot fire balls as ice pac let him freeze enemy's as chameleon pac give pac the tounge ability that let's him stick out his super long tounge and for metal let him suck up his enemy's with a magnet also let pac man fly whenever he wants to and if you don't like the finall smash I said then give him a ghost to posses a opponent so I can control them and make them fall or do the whole stage blue thing give pac man a style simular between Kirby sonic and Mario by the way I'm 11 a kid so please just add him to the game I love Pacman and love pac man and the ghostly adventures please give him at least a few things on my list plus namcos making the Nintendo version of smash bros so there should be a 110 chance of him getting in so please send this to the producer of the game smash bros I forgot his or her name sakurai mashakiro I think it's similar I think if you can get it to he or her please do I LOVE PAC MAN add him add him pac is back

He'd be so awesome! And whoever said they wouldn't use non-Nintendo characters in Super Smash Bros, they have before idiot!

Awesome he is already in it yes

Why is Shadow above MIDNA?! And people are still voting for Megaman after his confirmation? SSB4 Link is Twilight Princess Link, armguard, shield, tunic, bombs, etc. But his bow is unique. Zelda you E3 Demo Link is also Twilight Princess Link. Same Voice, buckle, and everything I mentioned before. SSB4 Link looks even more like this E3 Demo... So why has Nintendo completely disregarded Skyward Sword? Because Zelda you is a sequel to Twilight Princess, which they said they'd do if they got enough requests for Midna's return. There are still many websites going strong and being added to this day, dedicated to her not being a one time character. But why does SSB4 Link resemble SS's color scheme? Because TP got criticism for being too dark and hard to see, which I don't really understand, but the graphics would have to change anyways going from a game originally made for Gamecube to a game being made in smooth HD. That's just what the game would look like. Even in the original reveal for Link, where is he standing? On a hill, overlooking the Hyrule Castle from Twilight Princess! Reminds you of when you were a wolf in Twilight Princess and overlooked Hyrule Castle while doing a cute little Wolf Call duet. What would be the point of a Twilight Princess-less Twilight Princess 2? It wouldn't make sense, if TP2's ending was more cinematic/ amazing/ sad/ surprising/ dark/ anything good, it wouldn't matter if the ending to Twilight Princess would be less sad, although it could still affect her in some way. I do believe this is how Zelda you will play out. And didn't the E3 Demo look straight out of Twilight Princess's Temple of Time? Funny how Gohma appeared... Armogohma was the boss of TP's Temple of Time! Everything we've seen about the Zelda series in smash bros wii you 3ds and Zelda you points to Twilight Princess. Skyward Sword was almost complete when they started Zelda U, so don't think the SS design just wasn't ready yet. We saw The Hyrule Castle from a 2006 game, in a 2013 trailer. It seems obvious TP2 is what we're looking at and Midna will once again be just as much of a main character as Link Her and Ghirahim have the largest fanbases yet she is a Twili Magic wielder and would be able to have a Wolf Link moveset so there wouldn't need to be a Link clone. She'd add a female, and a character that changes so much between forms. She'd have two or three separate final smashes unlike Zelda/Sheik. Midna is by far my favorite video game character. The only character that even comes close is Rosalina, I love both so much. I could listen to Midna's Lament/ Desperate Hour or Midna's Theme all day!

Midna could use beast dark magic spells. I also think they could add equpment that you could add before the battle and midna could have the whatchamacallit on her head that turns her into that octepus thing.

One thing about smash is that almost every single character stands upright. Add Midna riding Wolf Link and you have a truly awesome potential character, plus you have another girl.

She's a beast and guides a beast

13Little Mac

Little Mac have big chances to be in the next game, Punch-Out! Series have revived on Wii, he is a great fighter and will fit very well in a Super Smash Bros. Game. Some people says that Little Mac don't have good attacks but Nintendo can prove the contrary. Go Mac baby, GO!

Little Mac is already an assist trophy in Brawl, and one of the few that acts similarly to a playable fighter. If you ask me, that alone makes him a good candidate for a promotion to Playable Fighter position in Smash 4. Add to that Punch-Out! 's recent comeback on the Wii, the boxing ring shown off in the trailers, and the fact that Little Mac HAILS from a fighting game anyways, and I'd say the odds are high that we'll be seeing Little Mac enter the ring in 2014.

Little Mac would be awesome for Smash 4. Nintendo said they were trying to get more old school characters in the next Smash anyway. And His final smash could be the triple star punch!

He's in the game

It would make sense to put Geno in because his moves are already basically predetermined from Super Mario RPG and would be easy to incorporate into Smash Bros. Besides if they can use other "1 game characters" in the series why not pick one who many people would enjoy seeing added to the roster. I mean seriously, Wii fit trainer? I'd much rather see Geno a playable character. If they can put other "non Nintendo" characters in and obtain the rights for them why not Geno too? It doesn't make sense that Nintendo would waste the money to put him in Super Mario Superstar Saga or whatever game that was and not put him in one of the most popular games for Nintendo. I did happen to see that you battle him in the upcoming Smash Bros. Why would they also waste the money to put him in the game as a "new challenger" but not a playable character? I just hope Square and Nintendo consider him for this game or maybe even the next one. Geno has always been very popular and many people besides myself would love to play as him again some day.

Geno's got everything you'd need in a game like this, he's flexible, he's very interesting, he's got power to spare and a lot of different gadgets built into him, they could execute him in so many different ways and have it still be a success. Most of all though, it'd be great to play as him again since the poor guy's a fan favorite despite being playable in ONE and ONLY ONE game. Poor guy needs to stretch those awesome legs of his, how often can you think of such an awesome doll?

I think Geno would make a cool character. Bringing in a not-well-known character into the games, like Pit, would be pretty cool. - ethany

Super Mario RPG is my all time favorite Mario game. Geno is one of the most Iconic Characters from back in the day, people would know him in a heart beat and would be a great link to older gamers such as myself. I would buy DLC just for Geno

Sakurai created Kid Icarus Uprising. Need I say more?

Palutena would be amazing we need more girls in Smash Bros and Palutena could certainly kick serious butt!

I have issues with Peach, Zelda, Samus, and Nana. We need some more respectable women that don't need men to save them or, in Samus's case, wear skin-tight outfits. They've done a great job with Rosalina and Wii Fit Trainer. But after playing Kid Icarus: Uprising, it's kind of difficult to want anybody more than the intelligent, pretty, kind, caring Lady Palutena. Then I'd also like to see Dixie Kong and Lucina (from Fire Emblem) and battle it out with some awesome ladies.

She is already playable

16Lloyd Irving

Lloyd would fit perfectly! Also Namco-Bandai Representative!

I think Lloyd is going to be one of the best character other then Sora and he got good move sets and you don't have to look for some move for Lloyd just look at his games you will find a lot

Lloyd came out in a soul caliber as a guest as a sword wielder. Another guest who appeared in the soul caliber franchise was link. Lloyd seems like an addition that would keep the game interesting adding a different character status and fighting style.

Prove that 2 swords are better than one

17Skull Kid

Because he was a trauma in 2000, because he was creepy again in 2006, and now is time for a new trauma. A new generation of gamers have to met him. I just love the character, is very versatile. Sometimes is creepy, sometimes is a nightmare, sometimes is tender, sometimes is funny. And no matter where or in what situation you put him, he will gives you A... Strong impression. The guy is very charismatic... And yeah, because he is weird and creepy. Guaranteed trauma.

I'm most interested in seeing new characters that hold a high place of honor in Nintendo's history and have the potential for new, unique movesets. Skull Kid has been in almost every Zelda console game, and most importantly had a starring role in Majora's Mask. Furthermore, with the success of the remake of Ocarina for the 3DS, talks of remaking MM abound, and what would be a better way to re-energize that scary-moon-fever than to put Skull Kid in Smash Bros, the best-selling and most widely owned Nintendo title there is?

Skull Kid is my favorite Zelda character. Majora's Mask was the third Zelda game I ever played and its been my favorite ever since. Skull Kid has never really got any attention until Majora's Mask 3D came out. And I know that now a lot of people want to see him in Smash. But they already have Skull Kid as an assist trophy. But they could take the assist trophy out of the game and replace the assist trophy with a playable Skull Kid character. Skull Kid for Smash!

He's one of the best villain characters in the Legend of Zelda franchise I mean just imagine destroying the world with a giant menacing moon.

I think I would rather enjoy playing as Lucina more than Chrom. Although Chrom is really cool, I would still rather enjoy playing as Lucina. But I would really really love to play as Anna, and I hope she joins the brawl. I REALLY hope she joins the brawl! Anna is awesome, and I would love going against my older sister with Anna the Trickster. I also think Avatar would be cool, but that wouldn't make much sense UNLESS he/she has different skins like in Brawl. But out of all, I think Anna should join. If not Anna, then Lucina.

With a HUGE success as Fire Emblem Awakening, who wouldn't want someone as awesome as either Chrom or Lucina? Chrom may have a better chance since Lucina mainly copies Marth, and Chrom is Marth's descendant! He NEEDS to be in the game! :D

Personally, I would like so see Lucina more than I would like to see Chrom. I would also LOVE to see Anna in there as well, I'm more on Anna's side than Lucina's. Lucina is awesome, but I want to see Anna in there more. I don't think neither of them will join the brawl, but the best day of my entire life would be to see Anna join the brawl.
I prefer Anna much better though!

Lucina is in the game

Whats not to like, a character dropping bombs all over the place. Think of a cross between links bombs and snakes mines. Totally Epic!

He is perfect for a SSB game. He has special attacks (Bombs) and has the perfect size!

Bomberman Would Fit In Great His Final Smash Could Be An Giant Bomb Please Put Bomberman In The Roster.

He's not in the game but he should be.

This guy is a shoe in for sure, number 23, are you kidding?!
Even daisy was mentioned before him, Waluigi has climbed his way up the Mario popularity rankings and deserves to be included in the fray because he seems to always get picked on

Plus, He May Only Appear In Spinoff games, But Hear Me Out, He Has Climbed Into Everyone's Hearts He Has Waited... And Waited, He Deserves A Little Recognition By Now!

He has personality, something both the villager and Wii fit trainer lack

He is already in the game as an assist trophy.
