Top 10 Most Wanted Characters for Super Smash Bros. Switch

Nintendo Switch is coming!!!! Here are the top 10 Smash 5 characters we want to see!!

The Top Ten

1 Krystal (Star Fox) Krystal (Star Fox)

Supporting Krystal DOES NOT make you anymore of a furry than supporting Wolf, King K. Rool, Banjo & Kazooie, Dixie, Isabelle, etc.

We're long overdue for a Star Fox character with an original moveset and Krystal's the only one that makes sense. Even Sakurai sees her moveset potential.

With her staff, of course, she could be a really interesting character

Krystal would be an interesting inclusion as she would be the only pure-staff fighter, and a second staff fighter alongside Palutena (who uses magic as an addition).

2 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 partner. more.

I think Waluigi is the most needed character for Smash, he could represent the Mario Sport game series.

Expecting Waluigi Time?


Why isn't waligi #1?

He has 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.

Yes goku would be so cool and would fit in smash amazingly

This is a joke, right?

4 Elmo Elmo Elmo is a Muppet character on the children's television show Sesame Street. He is a furry red monster with a falsetto voice, who hosts the last full fifteen-minute segment on Sesame Street, "Elmo's World", which is aimed at toddlers.

Best anime character of all time

Is this a joke?

Not gonna happen. SSB is all about video game characters and Nintendo systems.

yes please

5 Inkling

It's inevitable, considering the popularity of Splatoon. - benjigoo

Good news: they made it in!

This is one of the Best Nintendo characters of all time! Inklins are half human half squid. - Neinwott

Splatoon is overrated - TealBoyxx

6 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. His debut is in the first Mortal Kombat game.

Just because Ryu is in the game doesn't mean he has a chance. Scorpion can work in a game like Smash Switch, but he wouldn't fit in properly and considering how mature the franchise he comes from is, its almost impossible. Not to mention Mortal Kombat doesn't have too big of a history with Nintendo anyway. - CrimsonShark

I love to see Scorpion in SSB5. - Neinwott

They can't put M rated characters in smash bros - VideoGamefan5

7 Decidueye Decidueye

Nintendo must have Decidueye in smash bros 5

He makes sense

I'm shocked he isn't in it already - benjigoo

He is very underrated

14 Shovel Knight Shovel Knight

Definitely going to be in there. - Not_A_Weeaboo

15 Professor Layton Professor Layton Professor Hershel Layton is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the Professor Layton fictional universe, created by Level-5.

He was one of the best Phoenix Wright wannabe characters of all time! - Neinwott

A muppet? A real life basketball player? Rick and Morty characters? A SONY CHARACTER!? They're all RIDICULOUS! Give Proffessor Layton, Shantae and Krystal a chance!

YES! - benjigoo

16 Randy Cunningham (Randy Cunningham 9th Grade Ninja) Randy Cunningham (Randy Cunningham 9th Grade Ninja) Randall "Randy" Cunningham is a main protagonist in Disney XD show, Randy Cunningham 9th Grade Ninja .

He will be the 3rd PS CHARACTER LIKE Cloud. - Neinwott

Completely impossible. Kratos is owned by Sony, and as a result, he is exclusive to the PlayStation consoles. - CrimsonShark

20 Milo Murphy (Milo Murphy's Law) Milo Murphy (Milo Murphy's Law)
21 Tracer Tracer Tracer is a playable character appearing in the 2016 video game Overwatch, a first-person shooter video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment.

I'm already Tracer.

Please no.

22 Steve (Minecraft) Steve (Minecraft)


23 King K. Rool King K. Rool

Um K. Rool made it in already replace this spot with bandana dee or I will destroy you all

24 Islander (Tomodachi Life)

This would be a new Mii class. We can keep the Brawler, Swordfighter & Gunner. I'm just saying the Mii classes could use a bit more.

25 Treecko Treecko Treecko, known in Japan as Kimori, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I want to lick his feet - xandermartin98

Treecko is my favorite! - Neinwott

A bit random. - benjigoo

26 Monokuma Monokuma
27 Izuku Midoriya (My Hero Academia) Izuku Midoriya (My Hero Academia)

Cash Banooka in SB4? - Neinwott

He is bored with his extreme power. He is registered with the Heroes Association as a C-Class Superhero and is tasked to defend Z-City against Mysterious Beings.
31 Isabelle (Animal Crossing)

Isabelle is my waifu! - Neinwott

Check today’s direct because Isabelle is in smash!

32 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.

Shadow should definitely be playable. He would be the perfect addition. Eggman or Knuckles should replace him as an assist trophy but Shadow has to become playable.

Even if people don't want to see this hedgehog in smash, he shouldn't be at number 43!

He and Tails should be in the game.

33 Issac
34 Alma Wade (F.E.A.R.)
35 Eric Cartman (South Park) Eric Cartman (South Park) Eric Theodore Cartman is one of the main characters in the animated television series South Park, created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and voiced by Trey Parker.

Please no! - Smash64

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

Tails? Number 52! really... come on deserves to be higher then this to be honest.

37 Darth Vader Darth Vader Darth Vader was the original dark lord for Star Wars. Darth Vader ruled with both fear and aggression. Originally Anakin Skywalker a young Jedi who was then seduced by the dark side of the force by Chancellor Palpatine/Darth Sidious. Vader had his limbs cut off by his jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi leaving more.

You don't know the power of the dark side - Smash64

What is this - Not_A_Weeaboo

38 Spring Man

Not too keen on his game, but it would be a genuinely great idea that would work well in smash - kempokid

39 Pyra

A new xenoblade chronicles game came out in late 2017, it would be nice to get another xenoblade rep in smash bros switch.

40 Shrek (Shrek) Shrek (Shrek) Shrek is a character debuting in the 2001 animated movie of the same name. The popular franchise has 4 films and the character himself has become recognizable to people of all ages. He has since spawned into what is most likely the most widely recognized internet meme to ever come into the world.

Lets have shrex - KingFab


41 Peppy Hare Peppy Hare

He is one of my favorite! - Neinwott

42 Tiki (Fire Emblem) Tiki (Fire Emblem)

Unsure if a non-lord FE character would make it to the roster, but it would be pretty awesome if she made it to the game.

Silence! Ephraim should be in SSB - Neinwott

43 Sash Lilac (Freedom Planet)

Unsure if indie game characters have a chance, but they might as long as their game was released on a Nintendo system. As someone who liked Freedom Planet, I would love to see a Freedom Planet character make it to SSB since the game was released on the Wii U.

44 LeBron James LeBron James LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. LeBron has played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, and the Lakers.
45 Rick Sanchez Rick Sanchez Rick Sanchez is a fictional character from the American animated television series Rick and Morty, aired on Adult Swim.

Oh my god... - Not_A_Weeaboo

Lol - JPK

46 Gunvolt The Azure Striker

Besides shantae, he is the character I want the most. he could have a awesome moveset. by using his ep he could be immune to for example the first 3 hits and recharge for 10 seconds to repeat the cycle. his finals smash would be voltanic chains.

47 Kumatora

From Mother 3 - victordamazio

48 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.

Sure, why not. - Not_A_Weeaboo
