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.

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.

I only have three words to prove my point: Waluigi number one! In all seriousness, no other Mario Smash character represents the spin-offs. Waluigi can do just that. I see the appeal for Crash and Shadow, as they would help show off other franchises, but if we must get another Mario character, I choose Waluigi. If Geno gets picked, I won't be mad but Waluigi will yell: Aw, you cheated! - MasterBeef

Side smash: spiking a tennis ball at the enemy.

He just haven't been there

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.

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

Sonic needs to stop being lonely and have a friend or foe to be with him

Shadow is really cool we only have sonic in smash but he is a rival with Nintendo same as tails

Shadow is the ultimate life form for smash

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 he really needs to be in he is really popular same as sans and Steve I would personally like to play as all the characters on the list

A massive icon! Please join!

I have almost no doubt he is the 5th DLC, or at the very least in the DLC. - myusernameisthis

God I hope he gets in

4 Geno - Super Mario RPG

Spirit, but he can still has a chance.

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? - EmperorWolfgang


As much as I hate to admit this, he's a Spirit. - TheAwesomeBowser

5 Banjo-Kazooie - Banjo-Kazooie

Banjo has been around for a long time he is one of those really popular games well at least it was

They need to be in the game

Great news: They're in the game.

Well take this out because they are in

6 Bandana Dee - Kirby

We need more kirby characters. Franchise not represented enough with 3 characters. Every since 2010, he's been part of the main group.

I've wanted him since Brawl.

So god damn cute I can't resist

The last Kirby character we need.

7 Shantae - Shantae

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.

Spirit but she still has a chance.

First game on the gameboy color, her transformations would make an amazing moveset that smash needs

Great Indie Representative for Wayforward - slendyglowstone

8 Sora - Kingdom Hearts

Sora is a heroic character and (despite the fact he looks like Mickey Mouse) is powerful and has even gone up against Cloud before, who is already in smash.

Get him off the list! Sora does not belong in Smash and he will never be in the game.

Anyone who wants him are dumb as a door knob.

Check out that regional list. He's #1 on the America and Europe lists, while he's second place in the Japan list.

Sora means dealing with Disney so not worth the trouble. If Sakurai pulls it off though, I will personally go to his house and force him to take a vacation.

9 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 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.

Tails is super cute he needs to be in smash he is the 2nd most popular sonic character so tails really needs to be in smash

A spirit and Mii costume. Not 100% sure.

Only makes sense to add another sonic character

10 Skull Kid - Majora's Mask

His Final Smash can either be the Moon or Majora's Wrath. Attacks are difficult though.

Assist Trophy, sadly.

Skull kid is freaky and I don't know what his moves would be. - Kankajou

We need more zelda characters not more fire emblem characters.

The Newcomers

? Matsukaze Tenma - Inazuma Eleven GO
? Alice Liddell - Alice: Madness Returns

The Contenders

11 Isaac - Golden Sun

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. - EmperorWolfgang

Golden Sun needs to be revived

I’ve always wanted Isaac and will Always want Isaac to be playable. I really hope he finally gets his chance in DLC

Moveset potential with venus psynergy will be insane. Assist trophy be damned he has a chance now

12 Spyro the Dragon - Spyro the Dragon

Same with Spyro

Certainly open up a LOT of doors for possible fighters in the future. And if Nintendo could find a way to appease fans of all three iterations (I think I'm using that word right) and incarnations of Spyro, I think that'd be even better. - EmperorWolfgang

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! '

Yes because spyro is cool I vote for he because he was on the Nintendo

13 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.

He is a cool sonic character

Maybe a echo fighter, but the chance is unlikely

14 Sceptile - Pokemon Sceptile, known in Japan as Jukain, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I would rather have Mew honest

He's kinda cool

Complete the Elemental balance that inciniroar broke. - slendyglowstone

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

15 Tracer - Overwatch Tracer is a playable character appearing in the 2016 video game Overwatch, a first-person shooter video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment.

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. - EmperorWolfgang

Heck yea she became iconic enough to be in Smash.

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! - EmperorWolfgang

Preferably Roadhog

16 Goku - Dragon Ball Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. 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.

He is very strong for a fighting gam

No no

Even though he isn't a video game character id love to see him in the game

I would kill my switch if this happened - InnerAgent

17 Rayman - Rayman Rayman is the main protagonist and title character of the Rayman series created by Ubisoft game designer Michel Ancel.

I grew up with Rayman, so what is he a trophy in the games and not an Actual playable character?

Rayman plays like a smash character in rayman legends and origins"

Time for him to come out of that ice, must be getting cold. - myusernameisthis

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.

18 Steve - Minecraft

Steve is a very likeable character and he is from a very popular game he needs to be in sash

Minecraft is a unique game where almost anything is possible. It's fitting to put him in another game with endless outcomes.

Why not, Minecraft is one of the most popular games in the world.


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.

I need Dante or Nero

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.

Having Dante fight alongside the other Capcom characters in SSBU would be a dream come true. Make it happen, Nintendo!
(I respect you Sakurai and am totally okay if you want to take a well-deserved vacation first)
(P.S, Don't include the reboot Dante skin. The fanbase would scream in terror.)

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 more.

I want sans to be playable in smash

Sans is to be honest one of the main characters in undertale he needs to be in smash

I like sans and the trailer would be cool.

He is already a mii costume but it would be cool

21 Baldi - Baldi's Basics

Baldi chases everyone all the time

This is the best character to put in smash, and if they add it in, it will be a certain top tier (unless top players know how to answer his math questions). - Eclipsmon

Would be a gamer moment


22 Lyndis - Blazing Sword

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.

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.

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

Rip Alpharad - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

23 Eevee - Pokemon Eevee, known in Japan as Eievui, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Please Nintendo don't u see the potential in eevee

24 Yooka-Laylee - Yooka-Laylee

Easy echo for Banjo-Kazooie, and that fits perfectly considering the history of the character.

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! - ShuhBanggg

25 Sprixie Princess - Mario

Also NOT a newcomer - InnerAgent

26 Banjo - Banjo-Kazooie

He is on the list twice - Kankajou

Why is Banjo on this list twice? - EmperorWolfgang

He DESERVES it the most out of ALL these characters. He's long overdue and by far the most fun and unique duo. 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.

Didn't they already but Banjo and Kazooie in number 7 in the list or so - ES643262

He’s in as DLC - Beth2505

27 Ashley - Warioware

I think if Nintendo were to pick another WarioWare rep, Ashley would have the best chance. - EmperorWolfgang

I like her - Beth2505

Ashley join smash

I want her

28 Paper Mario - Paper Mario

It would be cool

We'd have a unique Mario that plays very differently from the other two already in the game. - EmperorWolfgang

yes - Kankajou

I played this game as a kid I loved it yeah make him in the game even though its about to come out

29 Krystal - Star Fox

Seems like an ideal choice

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

no chance - myusernameisthis

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

Hypocritical much, guys?

30 Akuma: Street Fighter Akuma known as Gouki in Japan is a character of the Street Fighter series and recurring antagonist, first appearing in Super Street Fighter II Turbo as a hidden character and boss who could be summoned after certain conditions were met, an emotionless and powerful warrior fixated on mastering the Satsui more.
31 King Boo - Super Mario King Boo is the leader of all the Boos, and the main antagonist in both Luigi's Mansion and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

King Boo is one of my favorite Mario characters so it would be nice

As far as I am aware, we don't have a ghost character in Smash and we don't have a Luigi's Mansion representative besides Luigi. King Boo could easily fit both roles.

I think this character would be super cool. I've always been a fan of King Boo, especially in Mario Party, and although I'm a huge advocate of thinking we shouldn't have so many Mario characters, I'd love him. - Danganronpa

Boo could have a very good move set

32 Heihachi Mishima - Tekken

Think of the soundtrack.

There's probs better Tekken characters that could be in it though - B1ueNew

Please let him in the game

I mean, if Ryu's in it, Heihachi should be! - RevolverOcelot

33 Batman - DC Batman aka Bruce Wayne is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, and first appeared in Detective Comics #27. In film, he has been portrayed by Lewis Wilson, Robert Lowery, Adam West, Michael more.

We have Robin and Joker so Batman has to happen

He can beat Superman I want him in so he can be best character so I can beat my friends

I can already see the memes coming in... - Sentimental

34 Lloyd - Tales of Symphonia

He was in Super Smash Flash 2! He already works as an AMAZING fighter!

Would be a really god third party character for one of the most beloved gamecube game and JRPG of all time

He is Lloyd Irving!

I want him in

35 Marina Liteyears - Mischief Makers


36 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.

Shrek is love, Shrek is life.

Why Not

Ogres Are Like Onions

Shrek should definitely be in smash, I watched his movies as a Kid, and the memes are sorta funny

Not in my swamp - Kankajou

37 Chun-Li - Street Fighter Chun-Li is a character in Capcom's Street Fighter series. The first female fighter of any fighting game franchise, she made her first appearance in Street Fighter II: The World Warrior in 1991.

Chun-li is the 1st women to be in a fighting games.

possibly - Kankajou

If ryu made it so can Chun li

38 Shovel Knight - Shovel Knight

Oh please nintendo

Should be higher than 34 - Eclipsmon

Fez Pez voted him aparrently - Kankajou

I think Shovel Knight has potential to be included in Smash. If not Ultimate than maybe a future Smash bros. if the series continues. - EmperorWolfgang

39 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.

I dunno - He came from an awful game...

40 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!

The Face of Mortal Kombat, its possible to tone down his violence for smash

I personally want Sub Zero in smash rather than Scorpion, but he'll do just fine

41 Ramirez - Fortnite

Why is she on the list?

Fortnite is worse than PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds! (my least favorite third-person shooter)

Bad idea, Will make Nintendo fans rage and cry like babies over a virtual character if this was real - B1ueNew

Same reason as Tracer, so no. - MrCoolC

Ew no. There is no way Nintendo is choosing anything coming from an awful game. - MasterCreepy

42 Funky Kong - Donkey Kong

Super Smash Bros Ultimate: New Funky Mode

Missed Opportunity. Easy DK Echo Fighter. - EmperorWolfgang

WE NEED HIM! Funky Kong is the ALPHA KONG and he is amazing in every way, shape AND form. - Danganronpa

Dk echo fighter. we need this - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

43 Zoroark - Pokemon Zoroark is a dark type Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from zorua at level 30.

This character can be as fast as Fox and use attacks similar to Wolf's.

44 Dixie Kong - Donkey Kong Dixie Kong is a character from the Donkey Kong series. She is Diddy Kong's girlfriend and Tiny Kong's older sister.

? maybe?

Dixie would be perfect to tie together the DK reps. I can kinda see her as an Echo for Diddy but at the same time I can see her as her own character. Preferably her own character and not an Echo. - EmperorWolfgang

I like her and I want her in as DLC - Beth2505

Another DK character would make lots of sense to be in the game, and I would love to see more of them, so why not? - Danganronpa

45 Decidueye - Pokemon Decidueye, known in Japan as Junaiper, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Alola forever

I really love decidueye but if they have to put a grass type starter, sceptile would make the most sense since we don't have any gen 3 rep. in smash. Meanwhile, we have incineroaor in gen7 - Eclipsmon

Please god - InnerAgent

Still has a chance

46 Dr. Wily - Mega Man Series Doctor Wily, full name Albert W. Wily, is a video game character and the main antagonist of the original Mega Man series.

He would be interesting

47 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.

Assist Trophies suck, Replace Incineroar with him!

You can't just flat out replace a character who's already playable - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

Zero and the other heroes from the mega man games should be in a new super smash bros game as playable characters and their special attacks would be so cool also auto duo and mega man x

He looks cool looks stronger than mega man and I want to see Zero V.S mega man

48 Lara Croft - Tomb Raider Lara Croft is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Square Enix video game franchise Tomb Raider.

She is a unique character, powerful, and would be one of the only female heroes with no powers, but still powerful. All girls need that,


I would like to see her in the game - B1ueNew

49 Enderman - Minecraft

I think that creeper from Minecraft should also be in smash. His unique look would be much appreciated in a game full of Fire Emblem characters. He could throw dynamite, explode, bump into people, and for his final smash, he could grow extremely huge and set off a mass explosion!

50 Reimu Hakurei - Touhou Project

Personally I haven't played smash as yet, but I have seen gameplay and my friend has it already. I feel Reimu would be an amazing inclusion to Smash, due to her being such an iconic character in the indie game area. She would also break the internet if she were to be added, reddit and 4chan would go crazy about and in the end, the developers would be making a huge profit out of the sales, since every Touhou player would flock to it after hearing the news

Super cutie and a great character, add her please. - Danganronpa

Please reimu to smash we need her

This would be awesome for Touhou fans all over!
