Top 10 Video Game Characters Who Would Be Most Surprising to Be Featured as a Playable Fighter in a Future Super Smash Bros. Game

egnomac
Since Super Smash Bros Brawl the franchise is no longer limited to just Nintendo characters as we've see to our surprise many 3rd party characters have managed to be featured in later installments like Brawl, Smash 4 and Ultimate and for this list we look at some of the characters from video games either from Non Nintendo franchises or Nintendo franchises that would be the most surprising to be featured as a playable character in a future Super Smash Bros game, for this reason only characters who originated from a video game are allowed on the list.

The Top Ten

1 Crash Bandicoot - Crash Bandicoot 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.

Super Smash Bros already have Solid Snake, Sonic the hedgehog, Pac-Man, Mega Man, Bayonetta, Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter, Simon and Ricter Belmont and Cloud from Final Fantasy in the series the ultimate icing on the cake would be for Smash to bring in Sony's top 3 mascots from the original PlayStation Crash Bandicoot, Spyro The Dragon and Lara Croft. - egnomac

I think he and Spyro were supposed to be in All Stars, but the greedy pigs at Activision asked for WAY too much money.
Let's hope they don't do the same to Nintendo. - Drawbox

SSB already has solid Snake, Sonic, Pacman, mega man, and others. this would be good - MrZebra24

2 NiGHTS - NiGHTS into dreams NiGHTS - NiGHTS into dreams
3 Lara Croft - Tomb Raider (1996) Lara Croft - Tomb Raider (1996)

PlayStation All Star already missed a huge opportunity to put Lara Croft in imagine if Nintendo wanting to stick it to Sony actually decided to add Lara to the Smash roster, and wouldn't be a dream match to see Lara Croft going up against Samus Aran both who are Nintendo and Sony's first major female heroines for their first major game systems. - egnomac

She was supposed to be in PSAS, but Square Enix wanted to release their Tomb Raider game before she was in the game, and by that time All Stars stopped supporting DLC. - Drawbox

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

Like Crash, he was supposed to be in All Stars, but he wasn't(but thankfully he wasn't or we'd get that Skylanders crap). I actually see him getting in Smash before Crash, because knowing Activision, they'd probably want him to promote when the Spyro game is ported to Switch. - Drawbox

5 Bonk - Bonk's Adventure Bonk - Bonk's Adventure
6 Alex Kidd - Alex Kidd Alex Kidd - Alex Kidd Alex Kidd is a video game character whose popularity peaked during the late 1980s and who was the protagonist of both a series of video games released by Sega and their fictional universe, as well as in numerous spin-off merchandise such as novelizations and comics.

I doubt that he'll ever be in, since Sega barely even cares about him. - Drawbox

Though almost nobody remembers Sega's original mascot before Sonic it would be really surprisng to see Alex Kidd get into smash. - egnomac

7 Rabbids - Rayman Raving Rabbids Rabbids - Rayman Raving Rabbids

No, Just no, People like rabbids and bubsy don't belong in smash.

8 Bubsy - Bubsy Bubsy - Bubsy Bubsy is a series of platforming video games created by Michael Berlyn and developed and published by Accolade. The games star an anthropomorphic bobcat named Bubsy, a character that takes inspiration from Super Mario Bros. and Sonic the Hedgehog.

The day Bubsy makes it into Smash is the day hell freezes over. - egnomac

9 Jill Valentine - Resident Evil Jill Valentine - Resident Evil Jill Valentine is a fictional character in Resident Evil, a survival horror video game series created by Japanese company Capcom.
10 Scorpion - Mortal Kombat 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 don't think Nintendo would want a character from a game known for it's extreme amount of blood and gore in a kids game. - myusernameisthis

Now that would really be shocking. - egnomac

The Contenders

11 Master Chief - Halo 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.

13 Fulgore - Killer Instinct Fulgore - Killer Instinct Fulgore is a player character in the Killer Instinct series of fighting games by Rare. Fulgore was introduced in the original Killer Instinct in 1994 as an advanced fighting cyborg and a nemesis of the protagonist Jago.

A killer robot from a Nintendo/Rareware/Midway arcade fighter? Why not?

33 Bass - Mega Man
