Top 10 Most Wanted Characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

This game has every single past Super Smash Bros Character and a few newcomers like The Inklings, Ridley, and Princess Daisy.

Also Bomberman is a Assist Trophy and so is Waluigi.
The Top Ten
1 Waluigi - Super Mario Bros. Waluigi is a lanky self-centered, brusque young lad as he is considered evil and the main rival of Luigi. Waluigi is shown causing local havoc in most games he appears in alongside his partner Wario. Waluigi is not instinctively evil or the antagonist (not counting DDR), as a matter of fact, he shows ...read more.

Waluigi having no main role is not an excuse, even Piranha plant doesn't have a main role and was added to smash. Waldige deserves a spot, because he's an awesome character in the Mario universe!

Yes, I'm very aware that Waluigi's already an Assist Trophy in Smash Ultimate, but let me say this. I used to NOT want Waluigi as I don't think he's that important of a character from the Mario series, but after doing some thinking & a little bit of research, I finally understand why Smash fans want him to be a playable fighter. He's Wario's sidekick that only appears in Mario spin-off games with abilities nobody else use, though he may try do what everyone else does in a different way. With that said, I say Waluigi is wanted to represent what the other Mario characters in Smash couldn't; himself, the spin-offs & (a desperate want of mine) pinball. Also, I want his echo fighter to be the Super Team Robot from Super Mario Strikers because that character shares some of its animation with Waluigi. That's all I have to say now.

I'm not sure if he'll ever appear in the game anytime soon but, as far as I'm aware he might never appear as a playable character.
Waluigi is in the same boat as Tails, he'll never appear and the people working on the game know why, you might want to ask them because I think Waluigi was on high demand for years now - he won't be appearing and I'm pretty sure we all know why, there is no reason to add him.
Shantae and Shadow have a better chance of- actually, only Shantae has a chance.

I'm gonna be honest, I've wanted Waluigi in since Day 1. He could come with a lot of unique skills from the many games/spinoffs he's been in e.g Side Special- He could hit a tennis ball with a racket real hard at the enemy, Neutral B- He could kick a ball at the opposing foe and deal mass damage etc. The moveset possibilities are endless with Waluigi, the only likely candidate I could see replacing Waluigi would be Geno but even then I bet he's just gonna be a Mii Costume again.

#WaluigiForSmash

2 Shadow - Sonic Shadow the Hedgehog is a character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega. He is an artificially created black and red hedgehog whose hover shoes propel him at extreme speeds that rival those of Sonic.

Shadow would be best as a semi-clone. He's be slightly slower than Sonic, being second fastest in the game, but would deal more damage. He would have more of a rush-down focus, which fits his higher attack power and his character.

His standard attacks, aerials and smashes could be pulled from Sonic Battle.
But his side tilt has to be the roundhouse kick.

Neutral Special: Homing Attack
Side Special: Chaos Spear (Can be charged, would launch 3 in a spread shot at full charge)
Up Special: Chaos Control
Down Special: Spin Dash
Final Smash: Super Shadow (but a cinematic one with Chaos Blast included)

He'd be an easy addition, and I really want him in. Knuckles would also be good but I want Shadow more.

To me, Shadow wouldn't work as an Echo Fighter. No, I think he'd be better as a full fledged character with his own moveset. The only one I could really see working as Sonic's Echo Fighter is Classic Sonic, because all the other hedgehogs have got something that separates them and make them different from Sonic. Shadow's got his Chaos Control, Chaos Blast, & Chaos Spear; Amy's got her hammer; Silver's got his psychokinesis; & Metal's got electricity, flight (Something Sonic & Shadow aren't capable of without the power of the Chaos Emeralds), and all the other weaponry Dr. Eggman set him up with. Shadow would work well as his own character. He'd have his Spin Dash as his Side Special, Chaos Spear as his Neutral Special, Chaos Control can be his Up Special, and he can take off his inhibiter rings and get a power boost for a short time. Lastly, his Final Smash can be Chaos Blast. It's perfect!

Really thought he would have made it.
About 85% of the leaks all had him as a playable character, and I started thinking he was guaranteed to make it into the game.
The final direct was released yesterday. He made a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance in the Assist Trophy part, and he was not announced for the fighters. I checked the site and he's definitely an Assist Trophy.
He's also got low chance of making it into a DLC pack, but he still could. If he does, then Waluigi could as-well. Keep your hopes up people.

He has been in since brawl, and think about it with his own game he has the map (A.R.K Colony) The music and let's face it his final smash could either be Super Shadow or an elongated Chaos Control. Alterate costumes would be changing the color of Shadow's red parts to other colors. Does anybody disagree that he is the character who makes the most sense.

3 Crash Bandicoot - Crash Bandicoot Crash Bandicoot is a video game franchise of platform video games. The series, originally exclusive to the Sony PlayStation, was created by Andy Gavin and Jason Rubin during their tenure at Naughty Dog for Sony Computer Entertainment.

Crash is as much gaming royalty as Sonic, Mario, Pikachu, Mega-Man, and Link. He deserves that spot on the roster more than almost anyone else.

If Smash Bros Ultimate is supposed to be a celebration of gaming history, Crash is just as necessary as Sonic, if not more!

Similarly to Spyro, Crash is just gaming royalty. It's only a matter of time before he's in smash bros.

Crash is perfect for Smash Bros, you could make the perfect move set for such a character.

4 Spyro the Dragon - Spyro the Dragon Spyro the Dragon is the titular main character and protagonist of the Spyro video game series, including The Legend of Spyro.

I'm gonna be honest, I'm biased here. As a teen in the 2010's, unlike most of my kind, my first console was already outdated: A PS2. My favorite games? Spyro the Dragon, Ripto's Rage, Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon, and eventually Skylanders when it came out. Suffice it to say, although Crash probably deserves the spot more, Spyro is gaming royalty as well. Not to mention, his having 4 legs would bring another of those much needed quadrupeds besides just Ivysaur. I think he'd bring a lot of variety, probably with Sparx as his main mechanic.

We'll never see him appear because he isn't listed by the games the series uses in the game, he might appear in the future - he might appear in the future but, it isn't likely.
Waluigi has a better chance of getting in than he does and the same thing can be said for Tails and Shadow.
It will not happen...

Spyro is a part of gaming history and should up there with the greats. He may not have been as popular in japan but that was only because of the bad changes made to the Japanese version. I think he deserves to be in smash bros just as much as Crash or anyone else and hopefully the new game does well in japan to show the everyone how good Spyro the Dragon really is.

Sega has Sonic. Nintendo has Mario. Sony has Spyro. It's logic! And they've done characters like Spyro before, so programming him wouldn't be torture anymore than any other fighter. And he ISN'T, YET ANOTHER 'human type character with sword! '

5 Sora - Kingdom Hearts

He is perfect for Smash. Popular series in America, Europe, and Japan. Great moveset potential. Great stage concept. Awesome music choices. Square and Disney both respect the character. Tetsuya Nomura has met Sakurai. Disney and Square have both made references to wanted him in Smash. This all adds up into making Sora a really safe pick for Smash Bros.

Sora definitely belongs in Smash. With Cloud and the Hero being in Smash already, we have 2 of the Big 3 Square Enix RPGs represented; being Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. Kingdom Hearts 3 was the second best selling game of the first half of 2019, so clearly the series is popular enough to be recognized based on name alone. Sora deserves a spot on the Roster

Honestly, since cloud and Banjo is in smash, it would honestly be possible for Sakurai to put him in smash. Disney even supports him in being in smash. Someone even made a tweet of them saying. "Hey should we put Sora in the game? ". Then Square Enix responded with a GIANT YES!

He would have a very cool Moveset with his magic and sword attacks, he could even summon a bunch of Disney heroes for his final smash. It would probably be funny if he had special voice lines if he was facing cloud, like when Fox uses his Final Smash against Wolf

6 Bandana Dee - Kirby

Now that „Kirby and the Forgotten Land", adding him is now a must, since he is a second player in this game (maybe a huge role as well).

Waddle Dee is my favorite character from the Kirby series and Sakurai is also the creator of Kirby. Even though there are only three characters in Kirby. It would not hurt to add Waddle Dee to complete the main Kirby cast. Also, Kirby's Return to Dream Land was an amazing game and Waddle Dee was my go to in The Arena and in the story mode all around. I would love it if Sakurai added Waddle Dee to Smash Ultimate as DLC. Please Sakurai, add the last final main character of the game you created.

Well he is part of the main four Kirby characters and is pretty much Kirby's best friend. He has appeared in every mainline kirby game for seven going on eight years now and is on par with the rest of the squad in skill. Also he so so precious. He is so perfect. He deserves to be in. Everyone says he is just a generic waddle dee, but that is the whol point of his character. To show that through perserverance hard work and determination, you are truly unique and prover yourself different from the crowd. Literally the only thing in common he has with other waddle dees is appearance.

Bandana Dee is actually a capitalist metaphor for the average citizen. Originally just a standard Waddle Dee, through hard work and perseverance he proved himself to be a more than valuable asset to his society. This inspiring message deserves to be shared in Smash, showing that Bandana Dee deserves his place. Reward this good man for his years of service, salute your republic, and it will salute you.

7 Geno - Super Mario RPG

Geno may not have been used much since his debut, but he left quite an impact. So many people think he's awesome and has great potential, and with K Rool and Ridley in the game already, he definitely deserves a spot in the roster.

Mewtwo was able to get into Smash 4 even though he was already a trophy in the game. So that doesn't completely rule out Geno. Plus, Sakurai wants Geno in Smash, I think he should get him. Who agrees?

He represents a totally new form of Mario games, and, being in a RPG can give him a large assortment of moves to use in smash bros, not to mention that Sakurai actually wants Geno in.

People always wanted the Mario rpg series to have a rep, I believe Geno would be the best pick. A way to show that Nintendo and Square Enix are as buddy buddy as we think they are.

8 Tails - Sonic the Hedgehog Miles "Tails" Prower is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series, and the title character's best friend and sidekick.

Tails is my most requested. We need like at least 4 Sonic characters sense Sonic the Hedgehog is the most popular video game franchise.

Tails has gotten in as a Mii outfit but, don't you think he'll be too powerful or too good for the series judging by what he can do in the games.
He may not be strong like Knuckles or even Shadow for that matter but, he might surprise you.
Heck, the trailer would have him stepping out of a machine he has made to upgrade his body just for the game in question.
Tails might have had a scanning ability that would have made him stronger and more powerful than the character his fighting.
The Mii outfit was the better chance if you ask me, otherwise the person playing as him would win every time and I bet you could say the same thing about Shadow.
Mii or Tails, go on make your choice...

No wonder he didn't make it, although Sonic got playable and Knuckles as an Assist Trophy. Tails is the weakest of the three, and that is why he did not make it.

Tails has been a sidekick for to long. He
Is intelligent, can fly, and us fast. His final smash could be drawing lightning from the sky and blasting it down a t all his opponents.

9 Shantae - Shantae

Now Shantae might be too sexy for the series because she dresses like a belly dancer despite being half genie, she'll stop the players from playing the game by how hot she looks.
So making her playable might be a bad idea seeing that the fans of her might just like her for other reasons, because she's sexy enough said.
Heck, the fans might want them to add an attack that has her devour another character and not in the same way Kirby does.

People love Shantae for the same reason people love Avatar the animated series. People like its cartoonish style that brings bot fun and charm but is cool at the same time. Here is why she deserves to be in the game: 1 She is the most requested female character 2: Her game is already a 2D platformer which is very suitable for smash. 3: It would be the first time an indie game character would join the battle (that's special) 4: She has unique attacks. 5: Started on Gameboy Color and has a good relationship with Nintendo.

Starting to grow tired of those who think Spirits de-confirm characters, which I'm pretty sure it doesn't. Strange to hear of all the themes for her match though is the Mob Smash theme... This has to mean something...

Mewtwo was able to get into Smash 4 even though he was already a trophy in the game. So that doesn't completely rule out Shantae as a possible candidate.

10 Skull Kid - Majora's Mask

I'm not doing myself any favors clicking the vote button, but I'm against the idea of Skull Kid being included in Smash. And yet he's still there as an assist trophy.

Skull Kid- the Starlight Glimmer of The Legend of Zelda!

We have five Zelda characters in Smash already, and they've all been there since Melee. I still believe that young link needs his true villain, and, Other than Midna with Wolf Link, we need another Zelda character.

If there's a Zelda character that deserves to be promoted from Assist Trophy to Playable Character, it's Skull Kid.

We need more original zelda characters other than a hundred version of links and a Falcon clone.

The Contenders
11 Banjo-Kazooie - Banjo-Kazooie

I have high hopes for these two and I really think it's their time to shine. As far as I know, they're the most requested 3rd party character. And with Nintendo and Microsoft's relationship, they could possibly get in. If Sakurai puts them in I'll never ask for another character ever again. The best and bird are all I need

Banjo & Kazooie are a beloved bear and bird that got their start on the N64. I remember me playing Banjo-Kazooie & Banjo-Tooie on the N64 when I was little, I was born in 2004, so B&K where already bought by Microsoft. I was cautious why I never saw Banjo-Kazooie games on DS, Wii, Wii U, 3DS While growing up. I soon after found out that Nintendo didn't owe them anymore, I was HEARTBROKEN. Nuts & Bolts came out and since I don't own an Xbox, I didn't buy it. Then The smash 4 ballot was a thing and I voted for the bear and bird, I was bumbed when they didn't make it, then Ultimate was revealed. I knew this was their chance, they missed out on base roster but then DLC Was a thing! I knew now that K. Rool was in relevancy didn't matter no-more! And now E3 2019 Is 1 week away! and the evidence for a new Banjo-Kazooie game is high. I just hope this also means we will be seeing B&K in smash! Moveset is easy, they are wanted. and Nobody would complain, why waste an opportunity like this? I ...more

Sorry, Duck Hunt is already in smash...this has to be a mistake.

Oh my god. I'm so hyped they are in the game.

12 Isaac - Golden Sun

Isaac is by far the most requested nintendo character from an unrepresented nintendo series. I won't give up on him so easily after the fact that he was brought back as an assist. As a matter of fact, I still think that he alongside other assists can get promoted. Smash assists are not the be all end all when multiple fighting games have characters that start off as assists/supports and are later promoted to playable fighters like in Pokken.

He does look pretty cool. I would want him in Smash more, but he sparks a lot of hatred to poor Sakurai so I've kind of simmered down a little bit.

There seems to be a lot of support for Isaac to be in Smash, so he get's my vote. I can see the potential.

Cloud is in smash, why not Isaac? Lot of cool set move is possible, lot of potential cool gameplay.

13 Paper Mario - Paper Mario

This is honestly one of the characters I am the most surprised about not being in smash. He has a series of games and is quite different from the regular mario, he already has a stage & would not be the first 2D character in the game, come on Nintendo, make it happen!

With his hammer and other moves from his RPG's he could play very differently than the main universe Mario.

We'd have a unique Mario that plays very differently from the other two already in the game.

Unique move set and design, would be totally cool to have him included. Plus the number of Marios could math the number of Links

14 Knuckles - Sonic the Hedgehog Knuckles the Echidna is a fictional character in Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is a red anthropomorphic echidna who is determined and serious, but sometimes gullible. He has the ability to glide and climb up walls, and is a powerful fighter due to his spiked hands.

I would love to see this

15 Rayman - Rayman Rayman is the main protagonist and title character of the Rayman series created by Ubisoft game designer Michel Ancel.

Rayman just feels like a character that deserves to get in. Plus, Ubisoft has a good relationship with Nintendo, so he'd be easier to get than Crash, Spyro or Master Chief.

Seriously if Rayman was added to Smash then tons of Ubisofts fans would go over to Nintendo. Ubisoft believes it's good for them to have Rayman in Smash, but really it's good for Nintendo. It's not about the producers because, Rayman is a strong and stable character, more uniqe and creative character can't be found. Rayman is not like the rest, give Smash some variation? Somewhat strange, something intresting, someone madder.

Rayman isn't quite a classic, per say, as Mario, Sonic, Mega Man, etc. are. He still deserves a spot in the roster, though, I think. We've seen before that Ubisoft is willing to work with Nintendo, and I think Rayman would be quite a unique character, with a lot of elements to pull from his games. (I'd personally enjoy a Rayman Legends music level-style stage for his pack's stage.)

I still have the green rayman cartridge from the N64... Pirate ship battlefield, ok? Clark assist trophy, he's got a ranged attack, hover, give him the sonic Fsmash, inkling upair... he's right there man I know you can see him.

16 Jet the Hawk - Sonic Riders Jet the Hawk is a character from SEGA's Sonic the Hedgehog series. Jet is very arrogant, prideful, and always seeks riches and fortunes. While also the Babylon Rogues' leader, Jet rarely takes his responsibilities seriously, though he knows how to assert his authority.

Again, they need more sonic characters and jet is pretty cool so

We need more sonic characters, and Jet would be a really cool fighter for smash

17 Sceptile - Pokemon Sceptile, known in Japan as Jukain, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

We all know a final evolution grass starter would be nice to have in Super Smash Bros Ultimate as a fighter. It would also be a first.

Combines my two favorite things, Hoenn and grass types. I'd still way rather have Breloom, but you take what you can get.

We need a fully evolved grass type. We have fire and water covered in Incineroar and Greninja. We just need a fully evolved grass

He's just one of the most iconic characters in pokemon and an all around fan favourite.

18 Sans - Undertale Sans or Sans the Skeleton is a character in the 2015 RPG Undertale created by Toby Fox. He is a lazy, pun-loving skeleton who is a supporting protagonist in the "pacifist" and "neutral" routes of Undertale, and a heroic antagonist/final boss of the "genocide" route. He is known for his incredibly difficult ...read more.

Sans is a good character for smash, and honestly he's going to be amazing in smash and think about the megalovania song they'll make, many people love undertale and he is the most popular character in the game. But honestly more people want Steve in smash, and my opinion on that statement is what the hell is wrong with you, why not add shreck oh wait someone already voted for him, woody, fire flower as a character, sonic ring, fortnite why not, but not sans. You want to add some of the worst characters in smash, if they add the characters you suggest than you'll ruin the franchise, sans will not. I mean many people wanted banjo in the game and now he's in. So if my long speech/reason isn't enough to get him in, at least I tried.

People don't appreciate undertale for what it is. As long as we get an undertale CHARActer I'm fine. Sans would be really cool. If he doesn't make it in, frisk/chara would have some neat gimmicks.

I know that he has a song and a Mii gunner skin, but they should still add him. His final smash could be his actual fight in Undertale and he would probably open that eye of his.

THIS I can can see people wanting. They could use Dunk on for the side special, their dodge could be the miss animation, and their down special could be gaster blasters

19 Tracer - Overwatch Tracer is a playable character appearing in the 2016 video game Overwatch, a first-person shooter video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment.

Tracer makes a lot of sense from a mascot point of view, and also would also have a very interesting dynamic with her blink ability. I could see her utilising her hit and run tactics from overwatch, and being able to rewind could work in an interesting way for recovery purposes.

With Overwatch coming to the switch soon and Jeff Kaplan, the creator of the game, being okay with their characters being included in Smash, I think Tracer has pretty good chances.

Tracer is the face of Overwatch. I think she'd have to get in first before characters like D.Va, and Roadhog could be considered. And we need a female DLC Fighter!

Heck yea she became iconic enough to be in Smash.

20 Tak - Tak and the Power of Juju
21 Red Savarin - Solatorobo: The Red Hunter Red Savarin is the main protagonist and only playable character in the game Solatorobo: Red the Hunter, and is voiced by Tetsuya Kakihara.
22 Zero - Mega Man

He's just so damn cool. He doesn't really deserve it, others would be better, but it's just the fanboy in me talking.

His combination of sword and beam attacks would be a blast to see working together.

Assist Trophies suck, Replace Incineroar with him!

He looks cool looks stronger than mega man and I want to see Zero V.S mega man

23 Dante - Devil May Cry Dante is a fictional character and the primary protagonist of the Devil May Cry series, created and published by Capcom.

Devil May Cry 1 is already on the Nintendo Switch (with DMC 2 coming in 2020). Dante has a chance! In all seriousness, he has so much potential for a Smash character.

His guns and high speed sword attacks would be very interesting to see adapted to Smash Brothers.

Would be cool to see him in smash bros.

Never played DMC, but this is a non-toon character I wouldn't mind at all

24 Yooka-Laylee - Yooka-Laylee

The spiritual successor of Banjo Kazooie, and created by the very same people. Not to mention they led to the greatest start-up fundraiser in European history. YES. Bring these two in!

Easy echo for Banjo-Kazooie, and that fits perfectly considering the history of the character.

25 Master Chief - Halo Master Chief Petty Officer John-117, more commonly known as the Master Chief, is a SPARTAN-II commando of the UNSC Naval Special Warfare Command. He is the protagonist and main character in both the Halo trilogy and Reclaimer Saga.

Almost everyone knows who the Master Chief is. Spartan 117 would be an excellent addition to Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

The more I think about the potential move-set of master chief the more I think he should be in the game. so many great weapons to think about.

Master Chief? You mind telling me what you are doing at Nintendo HQ?
Sir getting into Smash.
