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 - Super Mario Bros. 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.

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.

First of all they should replace all of the pokemon characters and put other's in the damn game yes I mean waluigi and others

Nothing dethrones the WAH!

Get my daddy in the game

Great news: They're in the game.

They're in now!

Yes. Forget steve and master chief.

Banjo needs to be in smash

3 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.

Cause why not? - myusernameisthis

I'd prefer Spyro. - Smash64


This bandicoot deserves it!
I bet Sakurai likes his games

4 Shadow - Sonic 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.

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!

Shadow would make sense as an Echo fighter.

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. - EpicWingman

Shadow was one of my favourite childhood characters in the Sonic series and I would love to see him, as he was my main in Sonic racing. - Danganronpa

6 Bandana Dee - Kirby Bandana Dee - Kirby

I am a big fan of kirby so to see bandana see would be the best

Why does Sakurai hate Kirby

Yes please I want my Bandana Dee NOW!

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.

7 Shantae - Shantae Shantae - Shantae

With the theme of the DLC Characters seeming to be third-party characters, I'd say Shantae has a pretty good chance at getting in.

Nope, but she did become a spirit in the story mode for ultimate so she got something

She just fits in Smash bros and you know it.

Starting to grow tired of those who think Spirits de-confirm characters, which I'm pretty sure it doesn't. Strange to hear of all the themes for her match though is the Mob Smash theme... This has to mean something...

8 Skull Kid - Majora's Mask Skull Kid - Majora's Mask

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 need some more Zelda characters in Smash, and Skull Kid would be a great option for the game, even though he's an assist trophy. - Marxcute19

9 Sora - Kingdom Hearts Sora - Kingdom Hearts

Out of all the characters options he seems to be the most appropriate for the roster. Not to mention Smash should only be exclusively characters who ORIGINATES FROM GAMES (not anime, cartoons or movies! )

Let the boi be in smash

Ma boi!

Best boi

10 Tails - Sonic The Hedgehog 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.

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.

Tales wants to at least share the Spotlight with Sonic

He has a chance

Sonic sucks

The Newcomers

? Allen - Alice Mare
? Pokey Minch - Earthbound Pokey Minch - Earthbound

Literally everything has been set in place for this to happen. Probably Fighter Pass 5.

The Contenders

11 Isaac - Golden Sun 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.


Easily best potential for a newcomer

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.

12 Spyro the Dragon - Spyro the Dragon Spyro the Dragon - Spyro the Dragon

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! '

I feel like Spyro just has more moveset potential than Crash does. Plus, with the switch port of the reignited trilogy having just been announced (as of when this was written) it would be the perfect time to represent this character.

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.

Let's keep this boy relevant forever! ~

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

Combines my two favorite things, Hoenn and grass types. I'd still way rather have Breloom, but you take what you can get.

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.

We need sceptile he's my third favorite pokemon - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

My favorite pkmn...
He'd have a really good moveset

14 Ashley - Warioware Ashley - Warioware

Ashley join smash

I want her

She's anime Wednesday Addams, what's not to like? :3

The rabid Ashley fans on Twitter will never accept that Ashley is and likely will remain an Assist Trophy in Smash. - nerffan8000

15 Paper Mario - Paper Mario Paper Mario - Paper Mario

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

Unique move set and design, would be totally cool to have him included. Plus the number of Marios could math the number of Links

I mean... Why not

Sure why not

16 Goku - Dragon Ball 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.

Really doubt this will ever happen, but I'd love to see this happen to be honest, even though I've never watched Dragon Ball or had much interest in it, he would be an interesting character for sure. - Danganronpa

He will Be OP and Goku VS Sonic

I do see him getting in to super smash bros. but not ultimate but he has my vote anyway

A Goku fan added this - ElSherlock

17 Rayman - Rayman Rayman - Rayman

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.

Ubisoft never said anything about wanting Rayman in Smash. And if Rayman was ever added to Smash, it would attract fans towards Ubisoft not the other way around. - RogerMcBaloney

I think Rayman is my favourite franchise. It's a shame that Ubisoft stopped working on his games...

In my opinion rayman sucks a lot

How is Batman,Shrek,Sans,Goku and any other charachters that turned about to be assist trophies higher than him? Why is he only at 37?
He IS the 3rd party charachter we need,heresd why:
he had 3 trophies in Smash 4 (Barbara,Globox,and himself)
Nintendo and Ubisoft are best friends (There is 2 games that crosses over Nintendo and Ubisoft)
He has moveset potential
Rayman Legends is on the Switch,and it has Mario and Luigi costumes
He has splashscreen potential
He is a Spirit (Its not official that spirits deconfirm charachters)
He has Echo Fighter potential (Its confirmed that there will be no Echoes in the DLC pack but who cares this is my post)
He is very iconic in gaming history
Nintendo is choosing the DLC charachters,so wouldn't it be fair if he was one of them?
He has alt costume potential
He has music potential
There was a cloud in the K.Rool trailer that looked like his face (Back in the Smash 4 days,a PAC-MAN cloud was seen in the ...more

18 Banjo - Banjo-Kazooie Banjo - Banjo-Kazooie

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

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

Still has a chance


Yes. I mean he is already in Pokken so...

Complete the trio of starter types

20 Ninten - Mother Ninten - Mother

He is the only protagonist of the trilogy that lacks appearing as a playable character. I sincerely hope that they will revive it.

It would be really cool to have him
plus it would complete the mother trilogy

We need him, he could have several diffrent moves from ness+ lucas
as in his game he uses a boomerang,slingshot,and baseballbat
he also uses diffrent spells like pk beam, hypnosis and pk shield

21 Lyndis - Blazing Sword Lyndis - Blazing Sword

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

Rip Alpharad - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

22 Krystal - Star Fox Krystal - Star Fox

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

Be easy to do because she is pretty much a bot fighter

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

Hypocritical much, guys?

I would like this to be honest - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

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

Don't like it


He would be to op his b move=slap side b=dash up b=you gay
down b=jump rope fs=get out while you still cam he's is to op

25 Heihachi Mishima - Tekken Heihachi Mishima - Tekken

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

I honestly can’t see a Tekken character in Smash. - MrCoolC

That image though. - Extractinator04

That image, WHY? - B1ueNew

27 Sans - Undertale 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.

*glowing eye* YOUR GONNA HAVE A BAD TIME KID should be his intro when starting a battle with him

Honestly sans is the perfect fit he has awesome attacks and the nintendo workers probably like sans as much as we do.

Yes he must be in smash

Yes my boy sans needs to be in smash - Marxcute19

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

30 Batman - DC 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.

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

31 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.

4chan ruined this chracter for me because either way it's going to be bad. Either the leaks are fake causing hype for a character who wasn't going to be in the game, or he's confirmed but there's no surprise because this blockhead has been leaked 24-7. In fact Steve has almost become a Red Flag for leaks, that and people claiming that they're an employing. So thanks a lot 4chan leakers, you've ruined Steve.

I really want that guy here too

REAL men want steve in smash

37 Shovel Knight - Shovel Knight Shovel Knight - Shovel Knight

HE GOT THE ASSIST TROPHY TREATMENT TOO?!?! Frankly, I'm surprised he isn't more popular. Yacht club games has published 3 games under his name, with 2 more coming. He also has a lot of originality. He's got charm. Personality. Possibly even more items than Link. Everything you need to create a fun moveset. Do I even need to mention that all of his games are on multiple Nintendo consoles too, so Nintendo isn't unfamiliar with him.

My favorite indie game and should be higher

38 Funky Kong - Donkey Kong Funky Kong - Donkey Kong

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

The absolute best choice for another DK rep. likable and would be very easy to implement. not to mention that sweet, sweet surfboard.

39 Ramirez - Fortnite

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

If they even added a Fortnite rep it'd probably be from Battle Royale since that mode is more popular. - Extractinator04

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

Already an Assist Trophy. Sorry, buddy.

If so then so what? Little Mac was an Assist Trophy in Brawl and later became a playable character in Smash 4 and Ultimate. - Jasmine21064

42 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!

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.

Wanna see those grabs!

47 Impa - The Legend of Zelda Impa - The Legend of Zelda Impa is a recuring character in the Legend of Zelda franchise first appearing in the first game as an elderly woman who gave Link his first sword, in later games she serves as a nursemaid and bodyguard to Princess Zelda.


Impa would work perfectly as an echo of sheik and would be great to see a Zelda character in Smash who isn't a form of Link, Zelda or Ganondorf. Made many cameos through the years and deserves her chance in Smash!

Impa deserves to be in! Either as an echo of Sheik or an original fighter based on her Hyrule Warriors appearance!

48 Sal - Impractical Jokers


Sal didn't get into Smash Ultimate, which is why he's tonight's big loser.

Yes! and Murr as an assist trophy

yes please - winterbreeze
