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.

The many, many, MANY, Mario spin-offs don't really have a real representative yet. Daisy might have done it if she wasn't an echo for Peach, but she was, so the vacuum remains without a filling.

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'm gonna be honest, I've wanted Waluigi in since Day 1. He could come with a lot of unique skills from the many games/spinoffs he's been in e.g Side Special- He could hit a tennis ball with a racket real hard at the enemy, Neutral B- He could kick a ball at the opposing foe and deal mass damage etc. The moveset possibilities are endless with Waluigi, the only likely candidate I could see replacing Waluigi would be Geno but even then I bet he's just gonna be a Mii Costume again.


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!

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

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!

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.

Represents the modern era of sonic plus his moveset would be awesome. The specials of sonic are mediocre but shadow could the same type of fast normals but use his chaos powers for his specials for a very great and complete moveset

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 is as much gaming royalty as Sonic, Mario, Pikachu, Mega-Man, and Link. He deserves that spot on the roster more than almost anyone else.

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

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

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

4 Bandana Dee - Kirby

Bandana waddle dee has to be in smash bros in my opinion there are only there kirby character's in smash and there should be more saying that the person who made smash a!so made kirby so it would make sense for him to be in.

Bandana Waddle Dee is a core part of the Kirby cast, as deserving of a spot in Smash as Dedede and Meta Knight. He's not just a "GoOmBa WiTh A hAt", he's his own character with a distinct personality, who has even made appearances in games without Dedede and Meta Knight in them. And the cherry on top, he's just plain adorable~!

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.

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.

5 Geno - Super Mario RPG

He represents a totally new form of Mario games, and, being in a RPG can give him a large assortment of moves to use in smash bros, not to mention that Sakurai actually wants Geno in.

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?

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.

People always wanted the Mario rpg series to have a rep, I believe Geno would be the best pick. A way to show that Nintendo and Square Enix are as buddy buddy as we think they are.

6 Shantae - Shantae

I love the shantae series and I know there are a lot of people who like this series. I just can see. And make so much sense that she could join smash. Just image her moveset in smash it will be so much cool.

I'm not too familiar with Shantae, but her games seem to be around as popular as many other franchises Nintendo already brought in (Kid Icarus, F-Zero, etc.), so I think she should, and will, be getting that spot.

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.

If any Indie Rep deserves a spot in Smash, it’s Shantae for how ling she was a Nintendo exclusive and for how unique of a platform mascot she is.

7 Banjo-Kazooie - Banjo-Kazooie

Banjo & Kazooie are a beloved bear and bird that got their start on the N64. I remember me playing Banjo-Kazooie & Banjo-Tooie on the N64 when I was little, I was born in 2004, so B&K where already bought by Microsoft. I was cautious why I never saw Banjo-Kazooie games on DS, Wii, Wii U, 3DS While growing up. I soon after found out that Nintendo didn't owe them anymore, I was HEARTBROKEN. Nuts & Bolts came out and since I don't own an Xbox, I didn't buy it. Then The smash 4 ballot was a thing and I voted for the bear and bird, I was bumbed when they didn't make it, then Ultimate was revealed. I knew this was their chance, they missed out on base roster but then DLC Was a thing! I knew now that K. Rool was in relevancy didn't matter no-more! And now E3 2019 Is 1 week away! and the evidence for a new Banjo-Kazooie game is high. I just hope this also means we will be seeing B&K in smash! Moveset is easy, they are wanted. and Nobody would complain, why waste an opportunity like this? I ...more

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

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

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

8 Sora - Kingdom Hearts

I'm not usually one to beg for more anime swordfighters, but Sora's the exception. First off, he's technically more of an anime bash-people-over-the-head-with-a-giant-key fighter.
But in all seriousness, he's got an aesthetic that sets him apart from the eight Fire Emblem characters, much like Shulk does, and he's a character that a lot of people grew up with and would be happy to see in Smash.
Plus, who can deny the novelty of a Disney-owned character in Smash?

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 should be top 5. His key blade would be helpful. He could use it to spin himself up like link and it can be a great attack like pit.

He is perfect for Smash. Popular series in America, Europe, and Japan. Great moveset potential. Great stage concept. Awesome music choices. Square and Disney both respect the character. Tetsuya Nomura has met Sakurai. Disney and Square have both made references to wanted him in Smash. This all adds up into making Sora a really safe pick for Smash Bros.

9 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 have five Zelda characters in Smash already, and they've all been there since Melee. I still believe that young link needs his true villain, and, Other than Midna with Wolf Link, we need another Zelda character.

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.

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

10 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.

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

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.

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.

The Newcomers

? Asriel Dreemurr - Undertale Asriel Dreemurr is a character from the 2015 game "Undertale". He was created by Toby Fox. more.
? Naib Subedar - Identity V
The Contenders
11 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.

I'm gonna be honest, I'm biased here. As a teen in the 2010's, unlike most of my kind, my first console was already outdated: A PS2. My favorite games? Spyro the Dragon, Ripto's Rage, Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon, and eventually Skylanders when it came out. Suffice it to say, although Crash probably deserves the spot more, Spyro is gaming royalty as well. Not to mention, his having 4 legs would bring another of those much needed quadrupeds besides just Ivysaur. I think he'd bring a lot of variety, probably with Sparx as his main mechanic.

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.

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.

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.

12 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.

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.

Simon came in the game along with Richter. There has not been a new character with Sonic.

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

Tails isn't much of a fighter. My vote for Sonic Smash Character goes to Knuckles.

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

Rayman isn't quite a classic, per say, as Mario, Sonic, Mega Man, etc. are. He still deserves a spot in the roster, though, I think. We've seen before that Ubisoft is willing to work with Nintendo, and I think Rayman would be quite a unique character, with a lot of elements to pull from his games. (I'd personally enjoy a Rayman Legends music level-style stage for his pack's stage.)

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 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.

There is no reason he shouldn't get in,
Ubisoft is willing to work with Nintendo

A popular choice among fans

Platforming icon

Easiest moveset I've ever seen

14 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.

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

15 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.

No particular reason just think he would be cool

Maybe a echo fighter, but the chance is unlikely

Are you kidding?
Knuckles all the way

He is a cool sonic character

16 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

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.

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

Need a fully evolved grass type, we have fire and water, plus, I love the Hoenn region

17 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.

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!

Heck yea she became iconic enough to be in Smash.

18 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

Steve isn’t fit for smash but it be cool if he was a smash character. His final smash would be riding the ender dragon and the dragon would breathe fire on everyone.

no I'm serious, think about it. Is there any real, genuine reason that he CAN'T get into smash? honestly they are an amazing candidate.

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.

19 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!

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

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 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

Sans is a good character for smash, and honestly he's going to be amazing in smash and think about the megalovania song they'll make, many people love undertale and he is the most popular character in the game. But honestly more people want Steve in smash, and my opinion on that statement is what the hell is wrong with you, why not add shreck oh wait someone already voted for him, woody, fire flower as a character, sonic ring, fortnite why not, but not sans. You want to add some of the worst characters in smash, if they add the characters you suggest than you'll ruin the franchise, sans will not. I mean many people wanted banjo in the game and now he's in. So if my long speech/reason isn't enough to get him in, at least I tried.

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.

He has everything a smash character would need for this game.. Body layout, Attack abilities, Map options, and lets not forget about the Music..!

21 Dante - Devil May Cry Dante is a fictional character and the primary protagonist of the Devil May Cry series, created and published by Capcom.

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.)

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.

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.

22 Lyndis - Blazing Sword

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.

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.

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

23 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

Why is Banjo on this list twice?

He is on the list twice

24 Ashley - Warioware

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

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

A popular character and a pretty good addition to smash

Ashley join smash

25 Master Chief - Halo Master Chief Petty Officer John-117, more commonly known as the Master Chief, is a SPARTAN-II commando of the UNSC Naval Special Warfare Command. He is the protagonist and main character in both the Halo trilogy and Reclaimer Saga.

The more I think about the potential move-set of master chief the more I think he should be in the game. so many great weapons to think about.

Master Chief? You mind telling me what you are doing at Nintendo HQ?
Sir getting into Smash.
