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.

Well, he's just an Assist Trophy in Smash Bros. Ultimate, but I decided to still make a move set for this purple Luigi.
Neutral Attack: He punches with boxing gloves like how he did in Game & Watch Gallery 4.
Up Tilt: He swings a tennis racket.
Side Tilt: He swings a baseball bat.
Down Tilt: He does a downward punch.
Up Smash: He summons a wall made of prickly vines to pop out from the ground, which is a reference to Wall-Luigi!, a move he does in Mario Strikers Charged.
Side Smash: He swings a golf club.
Down Smash: He spins around with a hockey stick.
Dash Attack: He swims horizontally across the air, which references Swimming Return from Mario Power Tennis.
Neutral Air: Whirluigi
Forward Air: He does a karate pose & kick, which is a reference to the Drop Rocket from Super Mario Strikers.
Back Air: He whips a thorn bush stem as a reference to Thorny Waluigi from Mario Strikers Charged.
Up Air: The claws of his machine that he uses ...more

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

I’d rather him over waLuigi - Randomator

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.

Please please PLEASE put the bad boy geno in my game

4 Banjo-Kazooie - Banjo-Kazooie Banjo-Kazooie - Banjo-Kazooie

Its banjo-kazooie

Sorry, Duck Hunt is already in smash...this has to be a mistake.

Banjo-Kazooie is a gaming icon.

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

5 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 has been in since brawl, and think about it with his own game he has the map (A.R.K Colony) The music and let's face it his final smash could either be Super Shadow or an elongated Chaos Control. Alterate costumes would be changing the color of Shadow's red parts to other colors. Does anybody disagree that he is the character who makes the most sense.

6 Bandana Dee - Kirby Bandana Dee - Kirby

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.

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.

We NEED the DEE! - LittleAwesomeApple

7 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

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

He's the best

9 Shantae - Shantae Shantae - Shantae

Having a character that transforms has tons of potential for a fun and interesting fighter, plus her pirate version has a lot of tools as well

More cool female characters in Smash bros is never bad.

She would make a great addition to the roster, she would be so much fun to play as

Dem bewbs doe

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

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

We need more original zelda characters other than a hundred version of links and a Falcon clone.

We need more Zelda characters and most are just links

Make it happen nintendo

The Newcomers

? 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.

He'd be the most powerful. Add him. - TeamRocket747

? Stewie Griffin - Family Guy Stewie Griffin - Family Guy Stewart Gilligan "Stewie" Griffin is a main character from the animated television series Family Guy. Obsessed with violence and matricide, Stewie is the youngest child of Peter and Lois Griffin, and the brother of Meg and Chris Griffin.

The Contenders

11 Spyro the Dragon - Spyro the Dragon Spyro the Dragon - Spyro the Dragon

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

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.

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.

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 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

He’s just one of the most iconic characters in pokemon and an all around fan favourite.

14 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

Sure why not

I mean... Why not

15 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

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.

no - Marxcute19

THIS IS SUCH A GOOD IDEA! Maybe if he turns s.s.White for his smash, he would be awesome! 11

He's in Super Smash Flash 2 and is top tier.

17 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

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 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

20 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

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 Yooka-Laylee - Yooka-Laylee Yooka-Laylee - Yooka-Laylee

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

23 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

Now we got Piranha Plant, maybe for the next game, we can have Goomba.

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

Why shoudln't god be in smash

That image though. - Extractinator04

I have mixed feelings about that image...

That image, WHY? - B1ueNew

25 Mother Brain - Metroid Mother Brain - Metroid

We thought Ridley was too big... We can go even bigger. - Marxcute19 play this game... - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

Kids play metroid? Of course it's a Nintendo game plus they play call of duty which is stupid - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

Wow. - Not_A_Weeaboo

26 Chun-Li - Street Fighter Chun-Li - Street Fighter

If ryu made it so can Chun li

31 Jet the Hawk - Sonic Riders Jet the Hawk - Sonic Riders

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

32 Funky Kong - Donkey Kong Funky Kong - Donkey Kong

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.

33 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.

34 Hammer Bro - Super Mario

There is so much potential for weapons like the boomerang, hammer, fire ball, and ice ball (along with a yo-yo for those who played the M&L Superstar Saga series)

35 Lakitu - Super Mario Bros. Lakitu - Super Mario Bros.

10/10 playable character

36 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

37 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.

Boo could have a very good move set

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

38 Jaffar - Fire Emblem
39 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? )

40 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

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

41 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

Hed be Nathaniel Bandys Main - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

The character was created by Jim Starlin and Mike Friedrich. The character first appeared in Iron Man #55 and has been portrayed by actors Damion Poitier and Josh Brolin in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

I hope they remember you - winterbreeze


YES! - Smash64

Thanos would be dope in Super Smash! � -

45 Incineroar - Pokémon Incineroar - Pokémon Incineroar, known in Japan as Gaogaen, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He's already in though - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

46 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

47 Ms. Pac-Man - Ms. Pac-Man Ms. Pac-Man - Ms. Pac-Man

Should be a costume choice for Pac-man at least

Should a Echo fighter - B1ueNew

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 King K. Rool - Donkey Kong Country King K. Rool - Donkey Kong Country

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

He is so broken...
