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.

If Waluigi ever had a chance of making it into Smash Bros. Ultimate, that chance is squandered by the harassment Sakurai got over not including Waluigi. The unfortunate outcome of people who take a meme seriously. - nerffan8000

I seriously don't know what they're waiting for, Bayonetta just came around to be a few years ago, Waluigi's been here for decades, wanted for decades, requested for decades, and we still haven't had our hands on him like what - Enmanu16

I personally think that Waluigi has been an overlooked character in Nintendo's history. If he couldn't get his own game, I think that he should at least get into smash bros.

WAHy is he not in smash yet? I don't get it. Give him mercy, Nintendo!

2 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.

If Smash Bros Ultimate is supposed to be a celebration of gaming history, Crash is just as necessary as Sonic, if not more!

That would be so awesome seeing Crash next to Mario, Sonic, Pac-Man, Megaman, Snake, Cloud and Bayonetta - Aidanisawesome

I just want another kirby character and crash bandicoot to be honest... - B1ueNew

Should be in smash

3 Geno - Super Mario RPG Geno - Super Mario RPG

Sakurai himself wants him to be in Smash.

Come on, Sakurai wanted him in smash, but he ended up as a mii costume, it's time for him to step up!

I have wanted Geno since Melee PLEASE make this happen somehow.

Geno may not have been used much since his debut, but he left quite an impact. So many people think he’s awesome and has great potential, and with K Rool and Ridley in the game already, he definitely deserves a spot in the roster.

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.

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

I say that I wanna see Shadow in action against Sonic. Mostly because he's been in the Super Smash Bros series (Brawl - Smash Bros 4) as Assistant Trophy. And since Dark Samus joins the fight as Echo Character, we can add him as Echo fighter as well. I hope he can be there as Echo Fighter

He has a high chance of being in the game. He isn't confirmed as an assist trophy yet so the bio-mechanical hedgehog has a solid chance of making it in.

He would be an echo fighter of Sonic but slightly slower but much stronger, and some different moves and animations

He should have been in the game but he's an assist trophy again for the third game in a row but he still could have had his chaos powers be put into his moveset he could have been his own character or a semi echo or he probalby could be dlc mabye

5 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.

Forgot Shadow, Tails is way more important than him, so he or Eggman should be in Smash

I miss the days when tails could fight with or without using machines. - HeavyDonkeyKong

I know he's a spirit but never say never I need tails as a DLC - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

:,( he's a spirit I'm so sad I really wanted him as a playable character - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

6 Banjo-Kazooie - Banjo-Kazooie Banjo-Kazooie - Banjo-Kazooie

Its banjo-kazooie

Reasons why They could be added to smash, because:
1.-This would be a good step to microsoft and nintendo relationship.
2.-Phil Spencer says that he wanted for smash
3.-It would be easy to make a moveset
4.- People missed the days when Nintendo and Rare where allies
5.- They been leave for a while, this could be a good opportunitie to revive the franchise

If they can't put them in smash at least put a trophie please

I have high hopes for these two and I really think it’s their time to shine. As far as I know, they’re the most requested 3rd party character. And with Nintendo and Microsoft’s relationship, they could possibly get in. If Sakurai puts them in I’ll never ask for another character ever again. The best and bird are all I need - nintendofan126

7 Bandana Dee - Kirby Bandana Dee - Kirby

Bandana Dee is actually a capitalist metaphor for the average citizen. Originally just a standard Waddle Dee, through hard work and perseverance he proved himself to be a more than valuable asset to his society. This inspiring message deserves to be shared in Smash, showing that Bandana Dee deserves his place. Reward this good man for his years of service, salute your republic, and it will salute you.

Well he is part of the main four Kirby characters and is pretty much Kirby's best friend. He has appeared in every mainline kirby game for seven going on eight years now and is on par with the rest of the squad in skill. Also he so so precious. He is so perfect. He deserves to be in. Everyone says he is just a generic waddle dee, but that is the whol point of his character. To show that through perserverance hard work and determination, you are truly unique and prover yourself different from the crowd. Literally the only thing in common he has with other waddle dees is appearance.

They're already adding from franchises in the game and he has so much at his disposal, be a little odd having similar sized characters (him and kirby) but he could act very differently

I just want a new kirby character :P

8 Sora - Kingdom Hearts Sora - Kingdom Hearts

Yes, Despite the fact I never played Kingdom hearts 2, I would like to see the creativity Sora has. - B1ueNew

If Sora or Roxas joined the Smash Crew, I would make him my secondary character to play. - Sentimental

Sora would be a great inclusion to Smash

Sora 4 Smash

9 Shantae - Shantae Shantae - Shantae

More cool female characters in Smash bros is never bad.

10 Skull Kid - Majora's Mask Skull Kid - Majora's Mask

Skull kid would be an awesome character

By far my favorite zelda character

This is my number one
His moveset has very high potential.
They could pull moves from Majora's Mask and Twilight Princess.

I would like this a lot to be honest. we only have three links, zelda and ganondorf. WE NEED MORE ZELDA REPS! - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

The Newcomers

? Pyra - Xenoblade

Swiftshadow_YoshiJay being a spirit doesn't mean nothing

Rip she's a spirit :( - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

? 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.

Heck yeah get him to number 1 over Adolf Waluigi - B1ueNew

Why not?

The Contenders

11 Spyro the Dragon - Spyro the Dragon 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.

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.

Well it Makes More Sense than Crash Bandicoot - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

It would be great cross promotion if Spyro was released as DLC when Switch releases the Spyro reignited trilogy

Spyro rules

12 Isaac - Golden Sun Isaac - Golden Sun

Cloud is in smash, why not Isaac? Lot of cool set move is possible, lot of potential cool gameplay.

My opinion is that Isaac has big hands. And big hands are good.

He should already be in

RIP PRESS F TO PAY RESPECTS the poor guy is an assist trophy - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

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

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

If Incineroar is rumored, then we would have Greninja, Incineroar, and we would just need Sceptile. He also did well in the ballot

14 Heihachi Mishima - Tekken Heihachi Mishima - Tekken

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

Please let him in the game

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

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

15 Krystal - Star Fox Krystal - Star Fox

Krystal's now an assist trophy but many would like to have her as a playable character. If so, there should be two versions - Adventures and Assault - and the attacks would be different for each one.

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

Hypocritical much, guys?

She is an assist trophy so stop voting her. - Drawbox

I'm Doing it cause I made the list I don't know why everyone else because she's an assist trophy like you said - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

I would like this to be honest - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

16 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

17 Ninten - Mother

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

18 Decidueye - Pokemon Decidueye - Pokemon

Complete the trio of starter types

Probs one of the most popular alola pokemon out there. Ash has him, so wouldn't it just make sense? We need a grass starter my dudes. Great moveset too.

19 Goomba - Super Mario Bros. Goomba - Super Mario Bros. Goombas, known in Japan as Kuribo, are a species of sentient mushrooms from Nintendo's Mario franchise.

If your not watching the super mario bros. Super show, you're gonna turn into a goomba

Just jump on him and he's dead. - MasterCreepy

The ultimate character

Why shoudln't god be in smash

Cool character

He's perfect for Smash

33 Hammer Bro - Super Mario
34 Funky Kong - Donkey Kong Funky Kong - Donkey Kong

Dk echo fighter. we need this - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

35 Ashley - Warioware Ashley - Warioware

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

Assist Trophy - ChroniclerMan5


€You better learn my name because it’s Ashley and I want to be in smash”! -kittenpaws01

36 Lakitu - Super Mario Bros. Lakitu - Super Mario Bros.
37 Jaffar - Fire Emblem
38 Zero - Mega Man Zero - Mega Man

Already an Assist Trophy. Sorry, buddy.

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

39 Incineroar - Pokémon Incineroar - Pokémon

He's already in though - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

40 Reimu Hakurei - Touhou Project

Reimu Hakurei, the Shrine Maiden of Paradise they say

This would be awesome for Touhou fans all over!

Please reimu to smash we need her

Yess Touhou in smash bros! I really want this to happen ( maybe most people did not vote for her because she is very strong and could defeat almost all of them easily? )

41 King Bob-omb - Super Mario

It’d be a good oldschool rep

42 King Boo - Super Mario 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.

Imagine if we got boosette and bowsette... why did I say that UGHHH - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

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

I would like to see her in the game - B1ueNew

Hooray! He has made his return after 10 years! - Drawbox

He is in smash and should have been ranked higher.

He in it after all this time - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

Wish Granted - Randomator

45 Viridi - Kid Icarus Uprising Viridi - Kid Icarus Uprising

Let's all agree she's a better choice than Dark Pit.

I would like to see her as an echo to be honest, but if it means getting rid of dark pit than no way. - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

46 Ms. Pac-Man - Ms. Pac-Man Ms. Pac-Man - Ms. Pac-Man

Should a Echo fighter - B1ueNew

47 Darth Vader - Star Wars Franchise Darth Vader - Star Wars Franchise 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.
48 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!

49 Chrom - Fire Emblem Awakening

He already did come to Smash Ultimate

Well, he's coming! - RevolverOcelot

YES - RevolverOcelot
