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 great compassion for his fellow peers, typically for characters Daisy and Wario. Waluigi is also described... read more

Yes, I'm very aware that Waluigi is 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. However, after doing some thinking and a little bit of research, I finally understand why Smash fans want him to be a playable fighter. He's Wario's sidekick, only appearing in Mario spin-off games with abilities nobody else uses, though he may try to 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, and (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 in 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 making it. Actually, only Shantae has a chance.

2 Shadow - Sonic the Hedgehog 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'd be slightly slower than Sonic, being the second fastest in the game, but would deal more damage. He would have a more 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 makes them different from Sonic. Shadow's got his Chaos Control, Chaos Blast, and Chaos Spear. Amy's got her hammer. Silver's got his psychokinesis. And Metal's got electricity, flight (something Sonic and 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, and Chaos Control can be his Up Special. He can take off his inhibitor rings and get a power boost for a short time. Lastly, his Final Smash can be Chaos Blast. It's perfect!

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.

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 going to be honest, I'm biased here. As a teen in the 2010s, unlike most of my peers, 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 four 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.

Spyro is a part of gaming history and should be 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 everyone how good Spyro the Dragon really is.

5 Sora - Kingdom Hearts

He is perfect for Smash. A 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 wanting him in Smash. This all adds up to 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 two 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 are in Smash, it would honestly be possible for Sakurai to put him in Smash. Disney even supports him being in Smash. Someone even made a tweet saying, "Hey, should we put Sora in the game?". Then Square Enix responded with a giant yes!

6 Bandana Dee - Kirby

Kirby, DeDeDe, Meta Knight, but where is Bandana Waddle Dee? He's the only main Kirby character that's not a fighter in Smash! And don't ask for Waluigi. That would be stupid.

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 is so precious. He is perfect. He deserves to be in. Everyone says he is just a generic Waddle Dee, but that is the whole point of his character. To show that through perseverance, hard work, and determination, you are truly unique and prove yourself different from the crowd. Literally, the only thing in common he has with other Waddle Dees is appearance.

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 an RPG can give him a large assortment of moves to use in Smash Bros, not to mention that Sakurai actually wants Geno in.

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.

I know the Smash Ultimate DLC has ended, but this is for Smash 6. I would really love to see Tails in Smash 6! He's really special to me, and I think his moveset would be really interesting. I'm honestly a little shocked he isn't in the game already. He'd be such a good fit.

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 as strong as Knuckles or even Shadow for that matter, but he might surprise you. Heck, the trailer could 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 he's 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...

9 Shantae - Shantae Shantae is the main protagonist of the video game series titled Shantae, which was developed and published by WayForward Technologies. The character was created by Erin Bozon, the wife of Matt Bozon, who is the creative director at WayForward. Since the release of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse in 2014, Shantae has been voiced by Cristina Vee.

People love Shantae for the same reason they love Avatar the animated series. People like its cartoonish style that brings both 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. She started on Gameboy Color and has a good relationship with Nintendo.

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.

10 Banjo - 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 bear and bird are all I need.

He DESERVES it the most out of ALL these characters. He's long overdue and by far the most fun and unique duo. The moveset makes itself with just the first Banjo Kazooie game alone. His appearance fits so well with the cast. He would also just be insanely fun to play as.

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

The Newcomers

? Lightning Farron - Final Fantasy XIII
? Khameleon - Mortal Kombat
The Contenders
11 Skull Kid - 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 versions of Link and a Falcon clone.

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 and 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 toward 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 gets my vote. I can see the potential.

13 Paper Mario - Paper Mario

This is honestly one of the characters I am 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 and would not be the first 2D character in the game. Come on, Nintendo, make it happen!

With his hammer and other moves from his RPGs, 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.

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.

Seriously, if Rayman was added to Smash, then tons of Ubisoft 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. A more unique and creative character can't be found. Rayman is not like the rest. Give Smash some variation? Something somewhat strange, something interesting, someone madder.

Rayman isn't quite a classic, per se, 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.)

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.

16 Marina Liteyears - Mischief Makers
17 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.

18 Scorpion - Mortal Kombat Scorpion is a recurring player character and occasional boss character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. His debut is in the first Mortal Kombat game.

I have a feeling a lot of his attacks are going to be similar to Simon and Richter, but at least he can work as an amazing fire fighter!

I would like him but because Mortal Kombat is so violent, I don't think so.

Extremely popular character from the Mortal Kombat franchise.

19 Sceptile - Pokémon 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 with Incineroar and Greninja. We just need a fully evolved grass type.

20 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 boss fight, bad puns, and the phrases "geeetttt dunked on!!!" and "you're gonna have a bad time."... read more

Sans is a good character for Smash, and honestly, he's going to be amazing in the game. Just 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. My opinion on that statement is, What the hell is wrong with you? Why not add Shrek? 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 to Smash, and if they add the characters you suggest, then 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.

Sans would be one of the best characters. His combination of bones, blasters, and telekinesis gives him a whole lot of options for moves. Who wants Sora in there anyway?

21 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 would also have a very interesting dynamic with her blink ability. I could see her utilizing 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!

22 Tak - Tak and the Power of Juju
23 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!

24 Red Savarin - Solatorobo: Red the Hunter Red Savarin (Japanese: レッド・サハラン, Reddo Saharan) is the titular main protagonist and only playable character in the video game Solatorobo: Red the Hunter. He is voiced by Tetsuya Kakihara. He's a 17-year-old Caninu who makes his living as a Hunter, a type of mercenary. Characterized as an "alpha dog", he suffers from amnesia and pilots the robotic Dahak throughout the game, which serves... read more
25 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.

It would be cool to see him in Smash Bros.
