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 Most Wanted Characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

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.

Wario has been in the game science Brawl, so why not Waluigi!? Sakurai clearly just hates him

This guy is funny and wacky. They could give him moves from a bunch of spin off games.

their is still a chance he can be a playable fighter search up super smash bros ultimate dlc and just scroll down than click on who is the next dlc for smash ultimate.

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

I do think they need more sonic characters and shadow would be the best one to add

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

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.

Similarly to Spyro, Crash is just gaming royalty. It's only a matter of time before he's in smash bros.

Crash is perfect for Smash Bros, you could make the perfect move set for such a character.

If smash is a celebration of games. Smash is missing crash. He needs to be in

This is an obvious pick and a great change from the consistent anime/sword fighters

4 Geno - Super Mario RPG

HE DESERVES IT after all he was the guy who represents all the Rpg's of Mario

If nintendo want to start Fighter pass 2 off with a bang this little guy would be perfect

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

He hasn’t really had a major video game appearance science Super Mario RPG, and would be a great character to have in smash

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

Great news: They're in the game.

They're in now!

Its banjo-kazooie

6 Bandana Dee - Kirby

we need more kirby characters and dee would be a good character

He would be such a fun and adorable character. I would main him in a heartbeat!

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

He's been my absolute most wanted character ever since Smash 4.


7 Shantae - Shantae

Disagreed. This character is too sexualized, like Bayonetta. At least Bayonetta wasn't too far sexualized so... - Blue86400

Hey at least that alternate isn't sparsely dressed in a problematic way for Smash! - Blue86400

It would be awesome to see Her and Isaac fighting beside each other

Another popular lovable character is what Smash is gonna need

A character with lots of magical abilities would be unpredictable and fun.

8 Sora - Kingdom Hearts

He would have a very cool Moveset with his magic and sword attacks, he could even summon a bunch of Disney heroes for his final smash. It would probably be funny if he had special voice lines if he was facing cloud, like when Fox uses his Final Smash against Wolf

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.

There's a lot of potential for Sora with his keyblade and spells.

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

9 Skull Kid - Majora's Mask

Because he is an iconic zelda villain and he has so much potential for moves

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

We need more zelda characters not more fire emblem characters.

If there's a Zelda character that deserves to be promoted from Assist Trophy to Playable Character, it's Skull Kid. - EmperorWolfgang

10 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.

With his tails and tech, he could play very differently than sonic.

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

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.

The Newcomers

? Wreck-It Ralph - Wreck-It Ralph

It's a video game character

? Red - Angry Birds

The Contenders

11 Isaac - Golden Sun

I don't know if I'm the only one who thought about this but it would be really cool to see him and Shantae fighting besides each other

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

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 Spyro the Dragon is the titular main character and protagonist of the Spyro video game series, including The Legend of Spyro.

It's Spyro, he has so many games to his name and it's definitely worth a place in Smash Bros.

Spyro should already be in the game. Can you imagine flying AND breathing fire (back off Ridley). Spyro can appeal to a younger crowd as well to keep the game relevant with them.

We need more animal characters, and Spyro would make a unique and iconic addition.

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

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

No particular reason just think he would be cool

Are you kidding?
Knuckles all the way

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

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

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.

Sceptile is my favorite Pokémon and if I saw him and Cuphead I would flip out

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.

Tracer makes a lot of sense from a mascot point of view, and also would also have a very interesting dynamic with her blink ability. I could see her utilising her hit and run tactics from overwatch, and being able to rewind could work in an interesting way for recovery purposes.

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

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

But I'm already tracer

16 Steve - Minecraft

Thorns shield would be good for Steve. A horse could make this interesting. A poison potion for damage. A golden apple as recovery. A strong support role with speed and defense

There is so much potential for this guy. Sword, shield, bow, axe, shovel, potions, elytra, golden apples, tnt. Who knows what it would be like to have him in Smash.

Very interesting Moveset potential, and with Minecraft being on the Switch, this is a good idea

Minecraft is the best selling game of all time yet steve isn't represented in smash :/

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

I mean it's Rayman, the fact that neither Rayman or the Rabbids are in smash either as a fighter or an assist trophy honestly baffles me.

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

Rayman is a great character for fighting games he is already in brawlhalla and nintendo have made mario and rabbids and there are rabbid mii fighter costumes

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

18 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.

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

Kid goku would be sick because he's not as op. Then he can turn into a big ape for final smash

Goku did not orginate in a video game. Therefore, we won't be seeing him in Smash Bros.

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

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.

Dante would be amazing not only can he have a Virgil alternate color he has over 20 weapons guns and melee and I think he would fit really well

His guns and high speed sword attacks would be very interesting to see adapted to Smash Brothers.

Well people wanted him to be in fighter pass vol 1, so there is a chance

Well I don't see any reason why they WOULND'T put him in fighter pass 2

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

An adorable character is what Pokemon newcomers need

Please Nintendo don't u see the potential in eevee

21 Baldi - Baldi's Basics

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

Baldi chases everyone all the time


22 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.

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

Your gonna have a bad time when the actual fighter is actually in the game

I think Sans would make an interesting character in smash.Although he IS a mii costume,he could have some interesting gimmicks and specials and moves in general. For example: for his up B he could use a gaster blaster to send him self upwards while spiking other characters,He could be extremely light weight since he only has 1 HP but his dodges are INSANE (by the way these are only 2 interesting gimmicks sans can have) so that's why I think he should be in smash

He actually made it as a Mii Costume. Think about that. A character from an indie game made in a basement with free software made it into Smash as not a Spirit, not an Assist, but as a fully functional Mii Costume. - TheAwesomeBowser

23 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

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 Paper Mario - Paper Mario

This is honestly one of the characters I am the most surprised about not being in smash. He has a series of games and is quite different from the regular mario, he already has a stage & would not be the first 2D character in the game, come on Nintendo, make it happen!

A lot of people would get mad about too many Mario clones, but they had no trouble making two Link clones, so Paper Mario would be interesting

With his hammer and other moves from his RPG's he could play very differently than the main universe Mario.

It would be like this guy is the toon link of the Mario universe

27 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

Why is Banjo on this list twice? - EmperorWolfgang

He is on the list twice - Kankajou

He’s in as DLC - Beth2505

28 Ashley - Warioware

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

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

A popular character and a pretty good addition to smash

Ashley join smash

29 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

30 Krystal - Star Fox

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

Hypocritical much, guys?

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

So that's why she shouldn't be in as a playable; like Shantae, she is too sexualized. - Blue86400

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.

I would like this to be honest - Swiftshadow_YoshiJay

31 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.

I like street fighter

32 Heihachi Mishima - Tekken

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

Please let him in the game

Think of the soundtrack.

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

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 Shovel Knight - Shovel Knight

Hey if he can be a spirit I see no reason why he can't be a fighter

He ain't comin' but I would like to see a Mii costume for the sword fighter

Would be awesome to have another underrated game represented

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

35 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.

If ryu made it so can Chun li

If she joins Smash, I swear she will be an Echo Fighter. - Blue86400

She represents the most in Street Fighter 2

I like street fighter and chun li

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

Everyone knows that shriek will be coming out in one of the Challenger Packs! He my boi

I’ve been wanting him since the smash 4 fighter ballot please add him mashed potato samurai

Shrek is my dad show some damn appreciation

37 Lloyd - Tales of Symphonia

Purely because this was one of my favourite games on the gamecube. Not to mention that Lloyd's move-set from the game would work incredibly well in smash.

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

Well, He was in a gamecube game, and it's a Namco character.
But honestly, I just loved the game very much, and that's why.

Also, the music was awesome.

38 Marina Liteyears - Mischief Makers


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.

We need more sonic characters, and Jet would be a really cool fighter for smash

Again, they need more sonic characters and jet is pretty cool so

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!

I would like him but because Mortal Kombat is so violent, I don't think so.

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 Funky Kong - Donkey Kong

Funky Kong shouldn't be allowed. He'd break the tier list and would be unbeatable.

Seeing as they put him in mario kart he’d be awesome to see in smash

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

Super Smash Bros Ultimate: New Funky Mode

42 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

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

Same reason as Tracer, so no. - MrCoolC

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.

Gen 5 is my favorite, shame there isn't a playable rep for it

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.

She's been in multiple DKC games and would play a lot differently than Diddy with her twirly hair.

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

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

That image though. - Extractinator04

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

Decidueye is one of my favorite pokemon, he would be perfect for a grass time Pokemon in Smash Bros.

Pokemon newcomers is what smash is gonna need in fighter pass 2

He was the perfect choice to represent Sun and Moon, I fell in love with this Pokémon at first sight and I wanted he in Smash bros. And I refuse to drop he, where everyone has abandoned he...

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

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.

Heck yeah, now this would be awesome, we've had enough villains represented in the smash series so why not wily?

He would be interesting

47 Zero - Mega Man

His combination of sword and beam attacks would be a blast to see working together.

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.

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

Assist Trophies suck, Replace Incineroar with him!

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

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!

Cool idea would love minecraft representative

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

Reimu Hakurei, the Shrine Maiden of Paradise they say

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

This would be awesome for Touhou fans all over!
