Top Ten Things We Want from Smash Bros. for Switch 2018

A Smash for Switch has been announced! I'm so excited! Also don't put characters like Inkling since they've been confirmed. You may add characters, game modes, or anything you think Smash for Switch needs.(Also sorry I'm rushing, I'm too excited!)

The Top Ten

1 Story mode

Subspace rules! Even though there are a lot of characters, they could have several stories that all link up into one final chapter! - Drawbox

Subspace was the only good thing about Brawl. Let's see something similar return. - Sop

If Brawl could do it, so can you... - mattstat716

Yes please bring it back - Dvafan2

2 Shovel Knight Shovel Knight

Dear god in heaven please let him get in - KingOfTheSauce

My favorite indie game character. - Sop

I definitely agree here - cjWriter1997

Yea... ok. - mattstat716

3 Spring Man Spring Man

Oh, I thought you were talking about the hilariously pathetic joke boss from Mega Man 7 - xandermartin98

Spring Man would be cool, I also hope Ribbon Girl is a palette swap. - Drawbox

A palette swap would simply be different colors. What you want is an alternate costume. - LarkwingFlight

I don't know... - mattstat716

4 Tails Tails

Tails would be good as a Smash character, I don't really want Shadow because he's WAY to popular, and since Nintendo and Sega are on good terms now, it's likely. - Drawbox

No. I'll just say Sonic is enough to represent the Sonic franchise. And there are other Third-Party characters that deserve a chance. - CrimsonShark

I'd love to see Tails in Smash! - RaccoonCartoon

Sorry, no.
I don't think we need more sonic characters in smash. - mattstat716

5 More classic characters

I hope that Ice Climbers return, and Balloon Fighter, Exictbiker, and some more characters make it in. - Drawbox

6 Shadow the Hedgehog Shadow 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.

He will NOT be a clone of sonic.
Neutral B: chaos blast (charge up)
Side B: chaos spear (fires two)
Up B: teleport
Down B: spindash (charge up)
Final Smash: Super Shadow.
Attacks: moves from Sonic Battle.

Just as fast as Sonic but stronger.

7 Less emphasis on downloadable content

I'm not saying they should remove DLC altogether, as it is understandably a strategic business tactic for making more money off the game, but I really hope they don't go crazy with DLC like they did for Smash 4. Wouldn't it be better to just unlock all characters in-game instead of having to pay for a new one every few months when new DLC is introduced? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

8 Party mode

A few mini-games focusing on collectibles and high scores can be interesting and expand upon Smash's features. - CrimsonShark

I don't mean Mario Party(cause Smash Tour was awful) but I mean they could have minigames that are fun! Not a Mario party rip-off! - Drawbox

I thought Smash Tour was brilliant. I played it with my cousin on boxing day 2014 - Liam31idents

9 More Single-Player Content

The Multiplayer of Smash Switch is going to be phenomenal, there's no denying that. However, the Single-Player modes have not really been regarded too much. My guess is that more modes can be introduced, such as a few mini-games as an alternative for collecting trophies and stickers, or something similar to challenge towers, such as Endless Battles, Survivor Battles, etc. - CrimsonShark

It's not hard, people. - mattstat716

10 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.

If they could get Sonic, Mega Man and Pac Man then the next logical step is to bring Crash Bandicoot to the Smash Bros series. - egnomac

Never gonna happen because Activision ain't letting him go. I think he's going to be fine in the hands of Vicarious Visions. - Mcgillacuddy

Has a chance now that N-Sane Trilogy is being ported to the switch.

I don't see why not! - RaccoonCartoon

The Contenders

11 More Cosmetic Skins

I love the Cosmetic Skins! - RaccoonCartoon

Take Bowser Jr. for example. His different costumes are actually the other Koopalings. With this, we might be able to have other characters in the game without sacrificing a slot. Princess Daisy could be a good cosmetic skin for Peach, or we could have a different versions of Zelda (E.g. Ocarina of Time, Skyward Sword and Breath of the Wild) and Ganondorf (Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess), complete with their own sound. - CrimsonShark

12 Sports mode

We have the fan game Smashketball, why not some more modes like Smash soccer, or Smash dodgeball? There are so many things they could do! - Drawbox

13 More hitstun

What’s a fighting game with combos that are typically one or two hits? I love Smash, but it needs a faster pace. - WonkeyDude98

14 Krystal Krystal

I put this on because I know the Star Fox fanbase would get mad if I did not, but she'd be a really interesting character. - Drawbox

They should totally put her in! - RaccoonCartoon

She’s long overdue to be a fighter in the series.

15 Spyro the Dragon Spyro the Dragon Spyro is a series of platform games which primarily features the protagonist Spyro the Dragon and his friend, Sparx the Dragonfly.

As much as I love Spyro, I don't think this is exactly possible unless the original trilogy remake is also coming to the Nintendo Switch. - WindWakerFan

Copyright could get in the way, which is risky, but I still have my hopes up. - RaccoonCartoon

I have played A LOT of spyro games.

16 Super Metroid Brinstar

Probably my personal top two for:

"Songs that should have been in Smash Bros"

(Okay, TECHNICALLY Upper Brinstar was actually in the Brawl soundtrack, but still) - xandermartin98

17 More 3rd party stages from 3rd party games
18 Scorpion Scorpion Scorpion is a recurring player character and occasional boss character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created by Ed Boon and John Tobias.
19 Rayman Rayman

An interesting choice for a third-party character. I'll give him a go. - CrimsonShark

Since Mario + Rabbids came out last year, Rayman has a high chance to make it in the game. - Drawbox

It means that Nintendo and Ubisoft have worked together, so they might be more willing to team up again. - Drawbox

Just imagine that amiibo. - LarkwingFlight

Lol a rabbid is gonna come instead - mattstat716

20 Solid Snake Solid Snake Solid Snake is a fictional character and one of the main protagonists of the video game series Metal Gear by Hideo Kojima. He is a legendary soldier cloned from Big Boss's DNA, who is sent to infiltrate and investigate the titular weapons in an effort to stop a potential war.

Ever since Mewtwo and Roy got a second chance for Smash, Snake is the character I want to return the MOST. The second one being Wolf.

He'd look way out of place but I'm up for it if I ever get a Switch - Skullkid755

Snake was one of the most wanted Smash 4 returners! He had better come back! - Drawbox

Then add the burger king from "sneak king"

21 Waluigi Waluigi Waluigi is a selfish, greedy man who works closely with the infamous Wario. He is Luigi's rival and is known as the opposite of him. Waluigi first appeared in the Gameboy Color game, Mario Tennis as Wario's partner. He has appeared in every Mario Tennis game since, still remaining as Wario's wicked more.

God yes bring us the naughty purple boy

Come on, I know you want him

It because he sexy right? or because protonjon

Waluigi for smash.
You already have everyone else. - mattstat716

22 Mettaton Mettaton Mettaton is a character in the popular 2015 RPG game, Undertale. He is a robot with a soul built by Dr. Alphys, and is the sole television star of the underground. Mettaton is a popular character in the fanbase. His notable features include his legs, and his catchphrase "OH YESSSS!"

Dear undertale fan,
Nintendo did not create everything and undertale is trash. - AStumpedHuman

23 Reimu Hakurei
24 Lucario Meta Knight & Mewtwo to stay in the Smash Franchise
25 More Bosses

Sm4sh didn't really have that many bosses, and even then, Brawl only had 10. Maybe Smash Switch can expand upon this and include bosses from other notable Nintendo franchises that would fit in. In addition, a Boss Rush needs a comeback. - CrimsonShark

26 Daisy Daisy Princess Daisy is a fictional character in the Mario series of video games, in which she is the princess of the fictional region of Sarasaland. more.

Maybe as a cosmetic costume for Princess Peach, she could make it in (I honestly don't know how she could be made into a character). And besides, we have more than enough playable Mario characters in the franchise. - CrimsonShark

She's a cosmetic skin for Peach in the 3Ds version, maybe they'll do this again for the Switch? - RaccoonCartoon

27 Bomberman Bomberman

Why not? - ZeroBlaster

28 Giving Sonic new moves instead of spin dash moves

no - mattstat716

29 Doomguy

If they put a character from a game with full-on nudity and gore (Bayonetta) they can put this Badass in the game. - Not_A_Weeaboo

30 Another Sonic Character

This made me chuckle - mattstat716

Knock knock...

31 Ness Ness

They will never remove Ness from smash Bros.

They need to bring Lucas back - MarioNinja101

32 Pokemon trainers making a return

But the trainer was the worst thing ever. Look it up on youtube. - mattstat716

With Pokèmon as an item and not as the whole thing. B button down: Pokèball. Pokèmon in Pokèball: Squirtle, Ivysaur, Charizard. Trainers: Red & Leaf. Final Smash: Sogelo or Celebi appearing playable for 1 minute, depending on which trainer you're using.

33 A new voice for Fox

Just give the role back to Jim Walker!

GOD Fox's SSB4 voice was awful. - Drawbox

Jim Walker, Joe Zieja, or even Steve Malpass are all infinitely better options than Mike West.

34 Paper Mario Paper Mario

He could be an interesting fighter...

35 Gunvolt the Azure Striker (Azure Striker Gunvolt) Gunvolt the Azure Striker (Azure Striker Gunvolt)
36 No clone characters

yes - mattstat716

37 Hollow Knight Hollow Knight

A criminally underrated character from a criminally underrated game. - Sop

GENIUS - hiphopgod

38 Nidoking Nidoking

If SSBS gets a new Pokémon character added, this guy would fit the bill. According to his Pokédex entries, he can easily destroy transmission towers with his tail, his venomous horn can cut through diamond (At least according to Pokémon Yellow), and is incredibly forceful in battle. I made a hypothetical moveset for him below.

Neutral B: Poison Sting
Up B: Drill Run
Down B: Dig
Side B: Thrash
Final Smash: Horn Drill - WindWakerFan

39 Maxwell (Scribblenauts) Maxwell (Scribblenauts)

There is so much creativity that could be unleashed in this character, the options are endless

If Villager can build a house, then Maxwell should be able to do similar things! - RaccoonCartoon

40 Decidueye Decidueye

There's Charizard, who is a Fire type. And there's Greninja, who is a Water type. And with Decidueye arguably being the biggest breakout starter Pokemon of Gen 7, Decidueye would make a great addition to the Smash roster and complete the starter type trio with its Grass type. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Most wanted Pokemon for Smash bros. - Drawbox

Meh, I'd prefer it if it was a different Pokemon. - RaccoonCartoon

41 Pepe the Frog Pepe the Frog

Let's be realistic here guys...

He must be in it

All hail Pepe - Not_A_Weeaboo

42 Raichu Raichu Raichu is an Electric type Pokémon, and the evolution of Pikachu. Raichu is number 26 in the Pokedex. It has an Alolan Form, which is an Electric/Psychic type.

Maybe as Pikachu's final Smash? - Drawbox

And they can have Alolan Raichu as a cosmetic skin. How does that sound? - RaccoonCartoon

43 Mewtwo to stay in ssb switch

They better not make him a DLC character again. I've already begged my dad to buy me eShop gift cards several times just to get all the DLC from Smash 4, so at the very least, Mewtwo should not only stay for Smash 5, but he should at least be relegated to an unlockable character instead of DLC again. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

44 Bandana Dee

Considering Return to Dreamland came before Smash 4, I was surprised he didn't make it into the roster. Hopefully, with Kirby Star Allies coming out this March, he might have a shot at being a newcomer for the Kirby series in Smash 5's roster. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I would love to see it, but I doubt it will happen. - mattstat716

Oh please, I hope this happens. - LarkwingFlight

45 Sans Sans 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.

Some cancerous undertale fan added this even though nintendo didn't make Sans. - AStumpedHuman

Just Because The Fans Can Be "Questionable" Sometimes Doesn't Automatically Make The Game And Character In Question Bad - JPK

I also strongly disagree about him being the overall best UT character (even if he does objectively have the most realistic personality) - xandermartin98

46 Midna Midna The Twilight Princess herself, Midna was transformed into an imp by Zant, who usurped her and turned her subjects into monsters. She set out to retrieve the Fused Shadows so she could take down Zant and save her kingdom.

She kind of already appeared as an Assist Trophy in Smash 4, but if we're talking about making her a full-on fighter on the roster, I wouldn't say it's a bad idea. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

47 A setting that changes the game's physics into past games

They could put a setting that makes the setting like the first Smash! So there aren't any side attacks. And we can also have a Melee setting that makes the game like Melee. Same for Brawl and Smash 4. - Drawbox

But I didn't like Melee.. - mattstat716

Well, that's not bad to me, but to the Melee fanbase that's like saying Nintendo is bad. - Drawbox

48 Travis Touchdown Travis Touchdown Travis Touchdown is a video game antihero and the main protagonist of the video game No More Heroes. 27 years old in No More Heroes, he is both an otaku and a professional assassin, wielding a Beam Katana.

Travis would be to Smash Switch what Bayonetta was to Sm4sh. The creator of No More Heroes has stated in interest to see Travis fighting against characters like Link and there's a new No More Heroes game coming out on the Nintendo Switch, so he's got a good chance for this. - CrimsonShark

49 Miis

The only request for Miis I have is that they aren't from the Smash universe. They should be in the Mii(or Wii) universe, and use moves from games like Wii Sports and Wii Play. - Drawbox

I'd like a bit more customisation for the Mii's for the Switch. Not just appearance-wise, though. - RaccoonCartoon

50 Goku Goku Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He had many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. more.

This has to be a joke, it will never actually happen. - RaccoonCartoon

Please don't be stupid, Goku will never make it into Smash.
(I'm a huge Dragon Ball fan and I can admit this.)
