Top 10 Most Wanted Characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

In This Game It Has Every Single Past Super Smash Bros Characters & a Few Newcomers like The Inkling, Ridley, & Princess Daisy

Also Bomberman is a Assist Trophy & 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 more.

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.

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.

Well, he's just an Assist Trophy in Smash Bros. Ultimate, but I decided to still make a move set for this purple Luigi.
Neutral Attack: He punches with boxing gloves like how he did in Game & Watch Gallery 4.
Up Tilt: He swings a tennis racket.
Side Tilt: He swings a baseball bat.
Down Tilt: He does a downward punch.
Up Smash: He summons a wall made of prickly vines to pop out from the ground, which is a reference to Wall-Luigi!, a move he does in Mario Strikers Charged.
Side Smash: He swings a golf club.
Down Smash: He spins around with a hockey stick.
Dash Attack: He swims horizontally across the air, which references Swimming Return from Mario Power Tennis.
Neutral Air: Whirluigi
Forward Air: He does a karate pose & kick, which is a reference to the Drop Rocket from Super Mario Strikers.
Back Air: He whips a thorn bush stem as a reference to Thorny Waluigi from Mario Strikers Charged.
Up Air: The claws of his machine that he uses in ...more

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.


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.

SEGA only wants Sonic in the game, that's why he hasn't appeared.
Heck, Tails got in as a Mii outfit that had his head as a hat and they gave him a blaster.
More on him later...

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.

I thoroughly enjoyed playing sonic more so in Brawl than the new installment. That is my full personal opinion on how I feel he controls now...
-That being said:
I feel like I would enjoy playing sonic with some much needed range moves (albeit: Chaos Spear: B- charged shots). Hover boots for decent recovery (Up+B). Chaos control with the ability to manipulate time (down+b to evade like Lucario). Chaos Blast as Final smash. A button attacks perform more kicking moves). More than likely putting this guy as my personal main. By far my favorite color scheme of a hedgehog... err... ultimate lifeform.
Regardless- This guy SHOULD have been in from the start considering SA2 and Shadow stuck with me and is my favorite character since 2001. From my understanding; wasn't he in the Guinness book of world records being a Most Popular Game Character for a year? Well aware he is an assist- but, make him a character to fufill a little more Sonic franchise considering the mixed fanbase and ...more

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 Bandana Dee - Kirby

Now that marx is a boss Bandanna Waddle Dee makes the most sence for a next kirby rep, plus we don't have a fighter who mainly uses spears

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.

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.

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.

5 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.

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...

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.

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! '

6 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.

I'm not usually one to beg for more anime swordfighters, but Sora's the exception. First off, he's technically more of an anime bash-people-over-the-head-with-a-giant-key fighter.
But in all seriousness, he's got an aesthetic that sets him apart from the eight Fire Emblem characters, much like Shulk does, and he's a character that a lot of people grew up with and would be happy to see in Smash.
Plus, who can deny the novelty of a Disney-owned character in Smash?

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!

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 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...

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.

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.

Although it isn't too likely, I still want tails in smash. At least add another sonic character.

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.

I love the shantae series and I know there are a lot of people who like this series. I just can see. And make so much sense that she could join smash. Just image her moveset in smash it will be so much cool.

I'm not too familiar with Shantae, but her games seem to be around as popular as many other franchises Nintendo already brought in (Kid Icarus, F-Zero, etc.), so I think she should, and will, be getting that spot.

10 Skull Kid - Majora's Mask

If its not Impa its Skull Kid, it would be a nice change of pace to have a zelda character that isn't apart of the triforce and skull kid is just the most likely after impa from age of calamity

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.

The Newcomers

? Mickey Mouse - Disney Mickey Mouse is a funny animal cartoon character and the official mascot of The Walt Disney Company. He was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks at the Walt Disney Studios in 1928.
? Nyami - Pop'n Music
The Contenders
11 Banjo-Kazooie - Banjo-Kazooie

Reasons why They could be added to smash, because:
1.-This would be a good step to microsoft and nintendo relationship.
2.-Phil Spencer says that he wanted for smash
3.-It would be easy to make a moveset
4.- People missed the days when Nintendo and Rare where allies
5.- They been leave for a while, this could be a good opportunitie to revive the franchise

If they can't put them in smash at least put a trophie please

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.

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.

Are you kidding?
Knuckles all the way

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 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.)

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.

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.

I mean it's Rayman, the fact that neither Rayman or the Rabbids are in smash either as a fighter or an assist trophy honestly baffles me.

16 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.

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

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

17 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.

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 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.

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

for gods sake, would you PLEASE stop? sans is already in, as a costume. you can even see him if you do palutena's guidance while battling the mii. you people seem to only care about sans but what about other undertale characters? I would like to see alphys in smash but it probably won't happen

19 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

20 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.

21 Alice Liddell - Alice: Madness Returns
22 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.

23 Lyndis - Blazing Sword

Lyndis already should be in the game and not Roy as the Fire Emblem Lord that the West first met and fell in love with. But Toy's our boy I guess so she's relegated to an assist. Please fix this injustice.

Before anyone says "but she's an Assist Trophy", I will remind you that Chrom is in Smash Ultimate as his own character yet Robin's Final Smash is unchanged.

Lyn is such a great character, and she's already been an assist trophy in SSB.

24 Tak - Tak and the Power of Juju
25 Krystal - Star Fox

Krystal's now an assist trophy but many would like to have her as a playable character. If so, there should be two versions - Adventures and Assault - and the attacks would be different for each one.

Harasses Krystal supporters for voting for her, yet Waluigi, another assist trophy currently at #1 on this poll, gets nothing.

Hypocritical much, guys?

Nintendo could make her the most unique of the Star Fox reps.

She probably getting all those votes from horny teens who watch furrie porn.
