Let’s Talk Smash: Who is your favorite character not announced yet?

super-smash-roster

We all knew a new Super Smash Bros. would be headed to Wii U, but what we don’t know are which characters aren’t going to make the cut. In previous interviews, series producer Masahiro Sakurai stated that he wanted to trim the fat and cut out some of the clone characters that have appeared, yet yesterday Toon Link was announced for the roster. Many of you were excited, since Toon Link tends to play much differently than his adult counterpart.

In the past few months since E3, Sakurai revealed that the villager from Animal Crossing, the trainer from Wii Fit, and Mega Man would be joining the roster. These are all new characters that have never seen play time before, so many of you are excited about getting your thumbs on an controller to destroy each other with new characters. Even though the game won’t be releasing for another year almost, that hasn’t stopped Nintendo fans from going wild with memes about the new characters.

We’re all excited to see who will be announced next, as a steady stream of characters have been teased and revealed over the last few weeks. Some of them have been rather obvious, which is to be expected considering we’re quite far out on a release date for the game. Nintendo wants to keep new additions for big reveals, such as those at E3.

Luigi, Princess Peach, and now Toon Link are all obvious choices for the game, but that begs the question of who is getting left out? Each roster change sees at least a few characters dropped. Lucario is pretty much expected to not return, while the fate of the more popular Jigglypuff is up in the air. So this brings me to the topic for this discussion:

Who is your favorite character that hasn’t been announced for Super Smash Bros. Wii U yet?

        you mean the guy with glasses. his final smash is captain rainbow. the stage is that island.

    • sdmac200600

      The man with the golden nipples?

      • MasterPpv

        And the Knee of Justice! ;)

    • CMB

      Make him S tier

    • gtosheex

      to me it would dumb not to include falcon – this game has really advertised a lot of games people didn’t know about – including f zero series and especially fire emblem

      • Pokewarrior2000

        Right! Without Super Smash Bros. Brawl, I wouldn’t know MArth and the rest of Fire Emblem existed and I wouldn’t have bought the awesomeness that is Fire Emblem: Awakening.

        • Mario

          I wish I had that game! But alas, I have no money to buy it.

    • Majora’s Mask

      Hes in every ssb game he will be in this one 99%

  • Justin Carlson

    Mr. Saturn

  • Baum 「ツリー」

    I’m really hoping for (a revamped) Ganondorf ^^

    • Tylos

      Like wind waker Ganondorf? That’d be good. No longer a clone and he’d have dual swords!

      • Baum 「ツリー」

        Not necessarily…actually I want Twilight’s Ganon, because that’s still my fave Zelda villain (almost fave for every game).
        Just give him his sword or some of his real magic and he’s going to kick everyone’s asses

  • SleepySkullhead

    I hope Captain Falcon and Ganondorf will be different enough to have them both join. I would also like to see Simon Belmont join and use his various secondary weapons as his moves.

    • Louie

      In Brawl it always bothered me that Ganondorf never used his sword (apart from in taunts) imagine how dangerous he could be if he didn’t move soslow and didn’t have terrible range.

      • SleepySkullhead

        Yeah, I’m hoping he uses that sword this time. If not, then he shoud be the Wind Waker version and have two swords!

  • SuperSmashLinkMo

    SONIC. Sonic The hedgehog

    • Brett Butler

      I think it would be cool to include Dr.Wiley and/or Robotnik. That is all!

      • SuperSmashLinkMo

        1. Dr. Robotnik’s Name is now Dr. Eggman

        2. Megaman is just new in super smash bros 4 so Dr. Wiley can’t be in SSB4

        3. Dr. Eggman in Super Smash Bros is a good idea

        • TheBrainJemin

          Who the hell calls Robotnik Eggman? I sure as hell don’t. I grew up with Dr. Robotnik, and it’ll stay like that.

          • Brett Butler

            It’s Robotnik all the way for me too…

          • Mario

            Eggman, Robotnik… It’s the same freaking person people!

          • gtosheex

            no it will always be Robotnik – especially from watching the original cartoons and reading the comics!

          • Uh Mazing

            Come on guys, nobody calls him that anymore.

        • ICHI

          Robotniks name was always eggman, just not in the west

          • ThisGuy18

            Yeah guys in a Sonic Adventure 2 Battle his full name is Dr. Eggman Robotnik so everybody wins, call him what you want! xD

          • Pokewarrior2000

            Just a minor correction, his full name is Dr. Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik. But you’re right, call him whichever! Potato, potaato (to make that sound) and Tomato, tomaato, right?

        • Kevin Sepulveda

          Robotnik is the name I prefer!

    • Mr. J

      In the past game my favorite character was definitely Meta Knight. I hope that they bring him back!

      • SuperSmashLinkMo

        You guy’s must understand that not any Third Party Character’s can be in the game said Mr Masahiro Sakurai

        • Mr. J

          Meta knight is a character from Kirby

          • SuperSmashLinkMo

            I’m Not Talk About You Mr. J

        • Vextrum

          *facepalm* And you think that Mega Man isn’t a third-party, while Meta Knight is? *facedesk*

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Crash Bandicoot

      • rp17

        In a perfect world, Nintendo would just buy Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, and Banjo Kazooie and give they attention they deserve from their respective companies. Maybe Sonic too. Alas, this ain’t a perfect world.

        • Mario

          Yep! It’s a crazy world!

        • lukas

          i totally agree butdon’t forget conker

          • Majora’s Mask

            conker is part of rare if they buy banjo they buy conker too but i dont agree with spyro its way too sony but i can see crash becoming better with nintendo

    • Logan Wayman

      Yeah! I agree. Add Pac-Man too and There would be thousands of people outside game stores!

      • Squid

        Megaman didn’t already do that?

      • Madmagican

        …people want Pac-Man? WHY?

        • Alexandre Trottier

          People are stupid.

      • Deadpool U

        If they do add Pac-Man I hope it’s the Ghostly Adventures incarnation then Pac-Man would actually have powers.

      • Arthur Jarret

        I’d like 8-bit pacman as an assist trophy only…
        The pac-man with arms and legs doesn’t exist to me.

    • LopsidedPasta

      As far as third party characters go, I’m glad there’s not many. I want Toon Zelda. Instead of turning into Sheik, she would become the agile, dagger wielding Tetra. Now THAT would be a newcomer to want!

    • Best Brawerl

      O-O BOMBERMAN!!!

  • Marcus Navarro

    Phoenix Wright. Straight up.

  • SleepySkullhead

    It would be awesome if there were at least one secret character that isn’t announced. If I remember correctly, Mewtwo was a secret character in Melee.

    • Baum 「ツリー」

      I think Wolf, Jigglypuff, Toon Link and (maybe) Lucario weren’t announced either before Brawl’s release

      • SleepySkullhead

        Pummeluff?

        • Baum 「ツリー」

          argh Jigglypuff :D
          Pummeluff is its german name ^^

          • SleepySkullhead

            Ah, it did seem foreign.

  • Linskarmo

    I like ROB. I can’t say I’ve played the game much, though, so I have little character experience.

  • Louie

    SHULK!
    Mr Sakurai please bring Shulk from Xenoblade into Smash Bros, that will make my day…
    Or Bayonetta, she will be a good choice as Bayonetta 2 is exclusive to Wii U.

    • Louie

      Oh c’mon who’s voting this down?

      • Guest

        You seem whyyy to demanding bro…

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/ChiGuyGaming John Zaccari

    I’m currently working on my review for Wonderful 101, and I’d love to see Wonder Blue join the fray. He cracks me up.

    • Nintedward

      Wonderful 101 is much better than a lot of reviewers have been making it out to be, would you wonderfully agree?

      • Robert

        The multiplayer is a let down.

        • Baum 「ツリー」

          uhm…not really :D
          It’s risiculously chaotic if you’ve got 3 or 4 friends with you

          • Robert

            I don’t know – I feel let down by it. Maybe I didn’t read the product description and news enough before ordering, but I expected story mode to have co-op. Instead, there are just a handful of multiplayer “missions” which don’t have anything to do with the story. I was wanting something like a more modern X-Men Arcade / Simpsons Arcade / Turtles In Time / etc. type game, and that’s not what it is at all.

          • BIG Franky

            its a more competitve multi-player …. which suits W101 much more… wherein score and rewards are the goal… its not a platformer.

          • BIG Franky

            yeah… my kids and i were having a blast with it. VERY fun.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/ChiGuyGaming John Zaccari

        I can’t really give my thoughts till I’m done with it, but I think many people are turned off by the steep learning curve. In my opinion, it’s part of the cost of so much innovation. No game really plays like W101, making it hard to get used to, but I think developers should be commended for thinking so much outside the box.

        • Nintedward

          100% Agree

      • BIG Franky

        The problem with reviews, particularly coming from the bigger sites…. they all rush to get it out the day the game is released…. and that doesnt work well for a game like W101… it takes time to get into the groove of a game like W101… and time to get into its controls, which are far from standard…. hell, there arent even directions packaged in with the game! LOL….. you have to learn as you go…. it was a few hours until i really appreciated the game and started to fall in love with it…. the reviewers at IGN, etc dont dedicate that kind of time… so a game that is so unique like W101 will suffer.
        oh and ALSO… to those that have complained about the gamepad controls…. you are NUTS….. the controls are great on the gamepad… very crisp and accurate… if there is anything wrong its that the shapes you need to draw at times are a bit similar (whip/claw or bomb/fist, etc)….

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/ChiGuyGaming John Zaccari

          Yea, when I’m trying to draw a big hammer, I screw it up like 70% of the time

          • Arthur Jarret

            Don’t draw, man – that control method meant for easy mode only: It’s a bit like Guile’s flash kick if you do it with the stick. (Hold direction, make a half-to-3/4 circle). After some practice, I learned to draw it really well with a quick stick motion, so I could jump over an enemy, draw my weapon and come down to a full stop. Hammer time.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Zelda review soon?

  • SuperSmashLinkMo

    Please Nintendo. Please Mr Masahiro Sakurai. Please bring Sonic The Hedgehog back. He’s my Best Number 1# third party Character. I want him REALLY BACK. He’s one of my top 10 favorite game character’s. I have lot of Nintendo character’s on that list

  • A_7

    i just dont wanna see anymore clones!
    Yes falco and ganondorf i’m looking at U guys.

    • Seth S. Scott

      FALCO? You mean WOLF right?!? :)

      • A_7

        Nope i mean falco. If anything wolf’s moveset is more unique than fox n falco’s.

        • rp17

          Yeah but people like falco. No one likes wolf

          • Genesect4ssb4

            You don’t like Wolf. Besides we need more villains.

          • rp17

            I was just saying the 3 most “hated” characters are ROB, G&W, and Wolf. As for myself, I leave it on random because I use everyone. But wolf’s moveset is mostly a slow, awkward version of fox’s. It’s like choosing to be ganondorf over captain falcon if ganon didn’t have the extra power. Wolf should stay but have a better moveset.

  • Javy G

    PACMAN, I know its out there but would be interesting.

    • Ducked

      Plus Namco is apart of Smash Bros 4

      • Squid

        You guys need to look up Klonoa, he also has Pacman on his hat.

        • Ducked

          I wasn’t a fan of the games.

          • Squid

            Yeah, but his design, is so fitted for smash.

          • Ducked

            Maybe

    • Josiah Parsons

      That might be cool, but the modern interpretation of him is ugly and kinda gross. if they could give him the same retro treatment they gave Game+Watch, he could be great

      • Javy G

        Yeah, but you can play both sides on this one. The retro Pacman is too simple and the modern Pacman has developed blue eyes which IS a bit too much. They should just keep it simple and use the plain small solid black, Pacman-shaped eyes on him. On another note a Pacman Stage would be PERFECT for SSB with using the maze as platforms.

        • Josiah Parsons

          true, but KOs would be really hard.

  • Derk

    Why isn’t toad in super smash bros? I think they should add all of their Mario characters even if it is only as a skin… Start doing your job Nintendo. Be creative and make those duplicate characters appear as skins.

    Toad / Toadette
    Baby bowser /Baby Mario/ Baby Luigi
    Waluigi
    Birdo
    Cranky kong / Funky kong
    Dry bones / Dry bowser
    Boo
    Koopa
    Daisy
    Goomba
    Thwomp
    Mii

    • SleepySkullhead

      Well Waluigi is owned by Camalot, so they need permission. I want him too.

    • SuperSmashLinkMo

      you know that some of that character’s are to being clone’s Right

      • Derk

        Yeah

    • Seth S. Scott

      I agree. I thought maybe they were going to do this with Brawl. Make Dr. Mario just a skin of Mario but he has the moveset of Mario. Same with Fox/Falco maybe? I know the flipside to this as well because these are small differences between the characters and at the same time if the characters moveset and stuff is there why not make them just selectable? Having them as a skin would require the same amount of space so why not just have them on the select screen?

  • Richard Collard

    Hmmm, I really want Ike to stay, but if there were a new character to be added, I would really want Ghirahim. You can take my money if you do that, Nintendo!

    • LadyCricket

      *high-fives Richard* Yes! Another Ghirahim fan!
      I know it’s not very likely because Ghirahim’s only been in one game that came out less than 3 years ago, but I love him as a villain and I know I’d love him as a Smash Bros. Character. He’s such a vicious S.O.B. He has a great variety of moves from his game – sword strikes, teleportation, flinging daggers, LICKING, and so forth. His “final Ghirahim” form would be a great final smash. And he’d be so delighted to have a chance to beat up Link!

      • Richard Collard

        I know, right? Ghirahim actually has personality, compared to most “rawr, I’m evil, I’m gonna take over the world!” forms of Ganondorf. The tongue licking and dancing from Ghirahim would be funny (but creepy taunts). Ghirahim would be a great character to add, and even though he’s only from one game, he definitely deserves a spot. He’s my favorite Zelda villain, and I would love to see him announced, rather than more of what we’ve received from Brawl. Time for someone NEW, Nintendo!

        *Fist bumps LadyCricket*

        • LadyCricket

          Actually, having him in Smash Bros isn’t nearly as important to me as having him appear again in the Zelda series. If they can revive Ganon that many times, they can revive Ghirahim too. I mean, hey, he’s basically an evil Master Sword who has an unhealthy obsession with destroying Link and claims they’re bound with a thread of fate … talk about good starting material! You could go in SO many directions! I mean, heck, I think A Link Between Worlds is going to explore the concept of a Dark Triforce… if you’re going to have a Dark Triforce, how about a dark Master Sword? (And only the IMpure of heart can wield it, lol)

          I mean, I’d be happy if he were in Smash, but if I had to choose between two options, I’d rather have him become a recurring villain in the Zelda series.

          • Richard Collard

            I agree; Ghirahim would have tons of potential in another Zelda game. This is just fan theory, but if you take a look at the Kokiri Sword and Gilded Sword from OOT and MM, they might have some similarities to Ghirahim. That red jewel on the Kokiri Sword looks a lot like that diamond on Final Ghirahim’s chest. Also, if you take a look at the diamond designs on Ghirahim’s red cloak, and compare them to the design of the blade on the gilded sword, you might see some similarities. However, this is just speculation, however. Either way, I would love to see Ghirahim again, so bring him back, Nintendo! There’s money to be made!

          • Majora’s Mask

            i dont think the swords have any connecttion with ghirahim plus he doesnt have a good moveset for ssb sure he can do four different moves (if you count left and right the same) but i dont see it coming also sakurai doesnt really like zelda all that much there are only 3 characters toon link its just a more advanced skin same moveset with link although the only hope we have is for tetra AND LIKE COME ON ALL WOULD LIKE TETRA TO BE IN THE GAME also the ganondor with wo swords would be sweet

          • Richard Collard

            Psh, that was just fan theory; I didn’t say it was fact. Also, we’ve been getting Ganondorf quite a bit. (He was merely a strong clone of Captain Falcon in Melee). He also hasn’t appeared in a Zelda game since 2006 (Excluding remakes). To be candid, I’ve been getting sick of only seeing returning characters be announced. I’d like someone NEW. So far, this new Smash Bros. game has not gotten me as interested as Brawl did, seeing that they revealed Snake in 2006 E3, to positive reception. Let’s not get dogmatic here, though; Ghirahim is just someone who would be an interesting addition, in my opinion. Hopefully you have better stuff to do than go and bash everyone else’s.

          • Majora’s Mask

            i just said that we mustnt get our hopes up

          • Richard Collard

            Ok. Fair enough. Still, as this is just speculation prior to this Smash bros. game’s release, there is really no harm in wanting to have a character added, as long as they are Nintendo or a worthy 3rd party game.

          • greengecko007

            If a character doesn’t have enough moves for the game developers will just make more for the character. Ness’s final smash in Brawl, PSI Starstorm, isn’t even usable by Ness in his game, Earthbound.

          • Majora’s Mask

            lucas doesnt even have a power from his game ssbb but still he can use psi so its kinda of implied that he can use them though for ghirahim we dont have any other demon lords to know their powers

          • greengecko007

            They could just make moves up? I’m sure a well known video game developing team has enough creativity to do so.

            He has a sword for standard a moves. For specials he could have his projectile attack from Skyward Sword, a teleport recovery move, his down special could be a counter attack, and his over special could be a quick sword parry.

            Not saying that I think he will be in the new game, but it wouldn’t be very difficult to come up with a moveset for him.

          • Majora’s Mask

            it wasnt a dark master sword only a sword that looked like the master sword plus he was a servant not the actual villain i someones coming back its demise and that is IMPOSSIBLE SINCE HES DEAD

        • Majora’s Mask

          ganondorf was adden in brawl if ghirahim is ever added it will be in like ssb 2020

          • Richard Collard

            No, Ganondorf was added in Melee in 2001. Check it out. It was fair, as it was 3 years after Ocarina of Time.

          • Majora’s Mask

            well ganondorf existed since the first game (sort of)

      • Majora’s Mask

        the game isnt even 2 years old

  • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

    I’m surprised I haven’t seen anyone ask for Bayonetta yet. She seems to be a popular choice for people who love Smash. I know this would be her first title, but a lot of people think she’ll be included.

    • Petri

      I think its more of fans of Bayonetta wishing her on it than fans of Smas Bros.?
      I have mixed feelings about it.
      Even though I love Bayonetta, I don’t know if I really wanted her on that game, even though I’m still going to buy it either way.

  • http://ejercitogeek.net/ Mercurio2054

    Cap. Falcon

  • Seth S. Scott

    Jigglypuff is easily one of my top characters so I would be sad to see her go. I dont think she will since she has been around since 64.

  • Angel Ketchum

    LUCAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

    I wanna see Krystal ;~; so bad… Get rid of wolf and replace him with someone who can have a different moveset. Like Krystal.

    • Louie

      yeah she could use the magic staff from Starfox adventures.
      I wonder what her final smash could be?

      • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

        Dino storm :D

        • Marcus Navarro

          You just brought back some horrid memories of Stairfax Temperatures… Stahp eet…

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            Aw come on, I liked stairfax advantoors

          • Marcus Navarro

            Grrrr…. Fuck. That. Game.

            You might like it because of the characters’ anthropic-animalistic characteristic(not that there’s anything wrong with that), but the game is just….AAARRRRGGGH! Fuck that game. Fuck it right in the inner ring ’til that motherfucker snaps.

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            XD well true, that was one reason…

            But I actually just really liked the gameplay. I dunno. It was dinosaur space Zelda. I thought it was fun :P

          • Marcus Navarro

            Could you blame me for expecting a traditional Starfox game in the newest Starfox game at the time?

            I will go back to that…game…to see if I have a…good time…with it. I expected that game to be what Starfox Assault ended up being, not Rachet & Clank: Gamecube Edition. I will see if it was just the broken expectations that ruined it for me or if the game was just….*sigh*.

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            I really liked it D: Jus sayin

    • Genesect4ssb4

      Does Fox or Falco use their claws to attack? Do either of them use biting attacks? No? Thought so. Wolf is 74% unique people. Quit calling or implying him as a clone.

      • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

        what’s his side b? what’s his up b? whats his b? and as for claws, what’s the difference between clawing and kicking? I’ll give you that his combo attacks are different, but still, he’s close enough to a clone.

  • Petri

    I cant really pick any of those, but Wii Fit trainer is sexy.

  • Ace

    I think Mac from Mike Tyson’s Punch Out would be a good option. I mean…he is already a fighter. Plus, it is one of the most popular games ever made on Nintendo. It would be cool to add him.

    • BIG Franky

      yeah… i have been saying this forever as well…. how the heck is Little Mac not included….the main character from one of Nintendo’s longest and best selling franchises which just so happens to be a fighter, NOT included in a fighting game based on Nintendo charaters?!?!?!? derp. ummmm… WTF?!? fail.

  • Seth S. Scott

    Almost all of the characters I love to play as (Luigi, Olimar, Toon Link, Mario) are back. Minus Jiggles and Lucas/Ness, although I think Jiggles definitely will be and at least Lucas or Ness if not both with be back. So I am pretty much set. I cant wait to try Villager and Trainer because they look rad and I’m sure there will be some other newbies yet to be shown. If I had to pick peeps to be cut I would say Wolf, ROB, Marth and Poke Trainer….although I am sure there are people would would be heartbroken if they were cut. Thats the thing with Smash though, every character is SOMEONES favorite character.

        Not Bad To Make That

  • Agent721

    BIRDO from SMB2, or maybe Shadow Link, from Zelda II.

  • Ducked

    I think Chrom, Rayman, and Knuckles should join Smash Bros for the first time.

    • Earthworm Jim

      I’d also like to see some Viewtiful Joe characters. Let’s leave wonderful101 out for now, please. Even though it might help it sell more copies

      • Ducked

        Yeah, Wonderful 101 seems a little to new. I know Chrom would be a bit new, but Fire Emblem Awakening was just amazing.

  • letzringj

    Gotta be my personal favs since the original. The Ice Climbers! Always had a soft spot for the dynamic duo.

    • sdmac200600

      Do you wobble in melee?

    • rp17

      The ice climbers weren’t in the original…

  • Mario Trochez

    Bring Sonic back!!!! Marth and Chrome from fire emblem need to come and Giriham form zelda skyward sword needs to come

  • Tylos

    Takamaru, cuz no one knows who he is. That just denotes popularity. I’m sure if he’s included there will be fans worldwide made happy. They’ll be so happy they die, which will cause it to seem as if no one cared but in reality everyone who cared just died. :)

    Look forward few more confirm for new characters or old faces join SSB

  • gamesplayswill

    Weegee…

    • sdmac200600

      Lol weegee was confirmed before dream team was released

      • gamesplayswill

        No I mean… weegee, weegee not luigi. They get mixed up a lot.
        Weegee is an evil being who commonly looks like luigi. It sucks up your soul.

  • Guest

    I think it would be cool to include Dr.Wiley and/or Robotnik. That is all.

    • Seth S. Scott

      robotnik would be a great addition!

  • Skelterz

    id like to see nintendo buy rare out completely and put banjo & kazooie in the game and also it would be nice for a complete remake of lego racers 64 like serious that game was tight not like newborn tight but like 12 – 13 tight…

    • Seth S. Scott

      banjo and kazooie would be awesome but I only see them being included if a new game was on the way……..WHICH WOULD BE AWESOME!!!

    • BIG Franky

      why would microsoft sell RARE to Nintendo?

      • Merrfn

        Because they wouldn’t.

        Microsoft are money hungry, but I doubt they are stupid.

        • jay

          It’s actually possible, but Nintendo won’t buy rare. It’s not the same company it was in the 90’s.

          • Merrfn

            Everything is possible Jay. Thanks for pointing out the obvious.

      • Skelterz

        Well Let’s just see how well the xbox one goes smarty pants they might not have a choice later on rares just a cling on to them they dont even use them properly fact in the event of a financial breakdown they’d be first out the door for microsoft tell me im wrong either nintendo or sega would buy them sonny.

  • Seth S. Scott

    I have always wanted Sir Arthur from Ghost n’ Goblins to be included. His armor could come off when he reaches over 200% damage just like in the NES original!

  • SuperBob

    Ron Jeremy is my favorite unannounced character.

  • Skelterz

    and whats all this dogshit about ”cutting down the roster”?! the hardwares more powerful the discs are bigger WTF there should be clones with different move sets there should be multiple skins for each character. toon link adult link dark link.. why not nintendo they say they want to make the console amazing they say its about software so why not go all out the could have a stage editor where you make your own stages and post them online to host tournaments they could have polls and votes for really bizzare games that are not so well known such as bio F.R.E.A.K.s, and body harvest put some of those in there and if that ain’t enough DLC downloadble shit also AMEN.

    Currently, it’s Little Mac.

  • Ian Settlemyer

    The addition of Toon Link makes me decide that none of the 35 characters from Brawl will be left out.

  • Anthony K Aurelia

    Hello Kitty!!! I kid….I want my Mii to be playable. Make it’s moves to do with all the casual games they were used in…..bowing for Mario anyone? Super Smash would be Miis on parade bombarding everyone.

  • 00EpicGamer00

    My favorite characters have already been added. Bowser and Link (regular, not toon.)

    But….if I had to chose someone not announced yet, I’d say Yoshi :)

  • klenko

    Lucas! His playstyle was so awsome!!

  • Angel Ketchum

    LUCAS!!!!!!!!!

  • Merrfn

    Little Mac.

  • Roberto

    Chrom from Fire Emblem is my dream character to be in the roster

  • Lord Carlisle

    OLIMAR.

    Sure, he was announced, but you neglected to put his artwork up there. Or even MENTION him!

  • Sdudyoy

    Hmm, I would have to say my favorite character in SSB would be Kirby, the character I would like to see most would be Ghiriham and as for a returning character I want to say Mewtwo.

  • discuss

    Lucas, so I can fight dirty.

  • Untrentide

    Olimar. I never imagined the day i would be throwing pikmin at pokemon.

  • Squid

    Lucario…

  • Guest

    Ness.

  • Carlos Coronado

    I want Wolf, Snake and Captain Falcon

  • bizzy gie

    Kirby is my main character and he was announced so I have no worries.

    • SuperSmashLinkMo

      he will be anytime being in SSB

  • zerooooo

    ~MARTH

  • Link

    The Non-Specific Action Figure!

  • Jack5221

    Meta Knight!!!

  • MetroidZero

    Mine is Samus (obviously), but I am eagerly waiting for Zero Suit Samus’s reveal. Metroid for life. :)

    • SuperSmashLinkMo

      If Her Final Smash Is The Same (that it is also) Then Yeah Zero Suit Samus Will Be Return

  • Niknique

    I really liked using ROB in Brawl. But sadly I have a feeling he won’t be in the Wii U one :(

    • rp17

      I thought i was the only one that still likes ROB

      • Niknique

        Lol I know what you mean. Everyone plays all the mainstream characters but where’s the love for the little robot :P

  • Josh Gilbert

    Ganondorf hands down…hopefully a demise…or a toon version with swords…either way…give that man a sword

  • drewzzins

    Hoping the return of the king. King Dedede.

  • videogamedude52

    It would be cool to see new characters, like Maxwell form scribblenauts, Chase McCaine form Lego City, Rayman from Rayman Legends, and maybe Wonder Red from Wonderful 101!

  • Elitepwnsface

    Master Chief, Falco and Zero are some i am hoping to hear about. It would also be nice to see the original Dante. The Wonderful 101 toons would be cool to have maybe have a move that lags the game giving insta kills idk. There are so many options here.

  • Lusunup

    My favorite Character not announced is Falco yeah… I said it.

    • Josiah Parsons

      Funny thing. Possibly my two favorites are Falco and Wolf. I hate playing as Fox. If they start cutting clones, well then… I’m a little scared for them. ssshk! *drawing finger across throat, while frowning*

  • Savlep

    Jigglypuff is my go to character, with every entry I’m afraid they will drop the character but they don’t here’s hoping Jigglypuff is back!

  • The Clockwork Being

    Isaac from Golden Sun. We was an assistant trophy before. He should become a character.

  • Daniel Schwarz

    I’d actually like to see less complexity when it comes to the Smash roster, and more when it comes to the stages. For example, I’d love to see stages from franchises like Duck Hunt, Balloon Fight, and Punch Out even if we don’t get characters from those games in the roster, sorta like how a Pilot Wings stage was announced. That way we can see more Nintendo history and greater variety in the game without the roster getting too complicated. I think it was over stuffed in Brawl.

  • Robert

    Conker cause he is awesome. JK not owned by Nintendo anymore so it would have to be the almighty Marth.

  • Super Buu

    Shulk from Xenoblade. I believe you all realize your characters are irrelevant now.

    • majora :D

      We’re sorry… real sorry

  • Mario

    My farourite character that hasn’t been announced? I’ll spell it for you.
    S-O-N-I-C!! But if Sakurai doesn’t add him in this game, I’ll…still buy the game anyway because, even if they don’t add him, I bet the game is still gonna be awesome!

    • SuperSmashLinkMo

      Don’t Worry Mr. Sakurai Hasn´t Say That Sonic Doesn´t Return. If Sonic Return I Will Fight In A Battle Whit Mario vs Sonic vs Megaman vs Link

      • Mario

        THAT would be epic!

  • Erik

    How come no one is mentioning Yoshi!? Id fall off the Empire State building if he gets left out D:

    • Mario

      Yoshi! Better?

  • Hans

    Marth!

  • ricyosma

    i want yoshi :)

  • Guest

    No love for Mr. Game& Watch?

  • Elderbuz

    Zelda

  • Jon

    Lets see, Marth (or Ike if he doesn’t put Marth in). Zelda, Sonic, Captian Falcon.

    Dixie Kong might be cool. Another one I think would be cool is Ryu from Ninja Gaiden in the NES days. And of course, TOADETTE :D

  • MYCO

    i like to see a playable toad and mewtwo in the game

  • CMB

    Snake and captain falcon

  • MujuraNoKamen

    Man I hope Ike comes back :'(
    I’m gonna guess and say Sonic will come back – what with Lost World being a Nintendo exclusive and all.
    And am I the only one a bit irritated by Toon Link’s return? I like him but he’s a clone again and we wanted rid of clones. Why not Ghirahim?

    • majora :D

      I think Toon Link is a good fit. He may have Link’s exact moveset, but his drastic differences in speed, weight and power make it for a totally different experience. But I agree, Ghirahim would be cool

    • great deku tree

      they may change his moveset before the release of the game. in a pic of the day showing peach on miiverse sakurai said that peach’s moves may be changed before the release of the game…I don’t see why they can’t do the same with toon link he could have a few different moves. for example deku leaf, hammer, grab with grapple rope which can also steal certain items from other players and can also be used for recovery, his final smash could be conducting the song of storms or summon a cyclone or something. also if you side dodge then press a he could do his move from wind waker where he rolls around his opponent and does an upwards strike? these are just coming off the top of my head at the moment so I’m sure they could come up with way more. my point is he may not be a clone/semi-clone (whichever you want) by the time the game releases.

      • MujuraNoKamen

        I guess so. I like Toon Link and a part of me is glad he’s returning but since they’re limiting the number of characters in SSB4 I’d rather they made use of some new ones/bought back some old ones rather than using the clones from Brawl which most had mixed feelings about.

        • great deku tree

          I’m partly glad he’s coming back too. before his announcement I thought that toon link wouldn’t be in so I started thinking about young link from majora’s mask. at the start he’s simply normal young link like in melee. however his down b would let him switch between the three main masks deku, goron and zora, similar to the pokemon trainer. If this was the case he’d have had loads of available moves.

  • Josiah Parsons

    Wolf!
    the only “clone character” (besides Lucas) who doesn’t suck.
    the only balanced character who doesn’t suck.
    Seriously, the dude is awesome.

  • Genesect4ssb4

    Mewtwo.

  • majora :D

    Captain Falcon. Period.

  • Aleks

    Bayonetta would be a nice surprise!

    • http://its-yuma-tsukumo.tumblr.com/ Yuma Tsukumo

      In my opinion, I don’t really think she’d suit the game just because there’s a huge contrast between her character and all the other characters. Another example of this is Travis Touchdown from No More Heroes. Bayonetta has always been displayed to be ‘Sexy’ Whilst Travis has been displayed to be a bad ass and he tends to use quiet a lot of explicit words haha. Whilst both of them could be a nice addition to the game i just feel that their personality would have to be toned down a bit.

      • Aleks

        True. Okay, picture this then… A bobble-head baby Bayonetta. Like a little kid version of her when she was a brat LOL. Yeah, i know IMPOSSIBLE lol, but it would sure be funny for a minute.

    Captain Falcon I can’t be the only that’s missing him, right?

    you guys will crucify me for this, but please, no more sonic characters in super smash. Sonic alone is enough, and it looks like he was replaced by megaman. thats fine be me.

  • Pikachief

    My favorite of he unannounced characters? Hmmm, they’ve annoyed pretty much everyone I play as except… Meta Knight but I’m kinda over him. I guess Sonic and Game and Watch.

  • Chronic Gang

    it’d be cool if spyro was in but thats never gonna happen

    • 00EpicGamer00

      Technically they COULD. Spyro has been on Nintendo platforms before, so he could be in Smash Bros. if Nintendo really wanted him to be.

      • Chronic Gang

        but i think he was a sony exclusive at first

  • Nik Gautreaux

    Little Mac!!!

  • hammy

    Marth but hope he comes in fire emblem awakening or they can replace him with chrom I don’t mind.

    • Genesect4ssb4

      Why would they replace the face of Fire Emblem with Chrom?

      • Mario

        Because Chrom is a descendant of Marth.

  • mar laguna

    I ill go with ike and sonic they r cool :3

  • aidden

    MARTh

  • wackypizza

    keep solid snake

  • SuperNardful

    Either Ridley or Sonic. I also hope Lucario and Ike can return by chance.

  • Pokewarrior2000

    Zelda or Zero Suit Samus. And Sonic. We need those three. Well, maybe not Sonic, but he’s cool enough.

    • SuperSmashLinkMo

      1. Zelda can be in SSB4

      2. Zero Suit Samus Must Be 100% Be Returning Because Her Final Smash

      3. Why Not Sonic He’s Cool And He’s Getting 3 Nintendo Exclusive Main Sonic Games

  • daniel3

    Diddy Kong!!!

  • Ugslick

    Zero Suit Samus. Waiting… Other than that.. just excited to see how everyone turns out.

  • Kirbyomega

    Veteran favorite is Marty(because I want to put him in a dress)
    Newcomer Favorite would be Waddle Dee or Waluigi

  • NextChannelGames

    My would be the Pokemon Trainer, Jigglypuff and Ness

  • Josiah Parsons

    Reggie!!!!
    Why not? His body is ready.

    • SuperSmashLinkMo

      Mii is better

      • Josiah Parsons

        Actually, Mii as a playable character would be pretty awesome. Final Smash: Mii Parade. All the Miis come running from one side of the map and sweep everyone away!

  • Josiah Parsons

    Team Rocket! Blasting off again!

  • Dennis Fisher Jr

    Falco!!

  • Best Brawerl

    BOMBERMAN SHOULD BE, I mean if you know what i mean ¬o¬ he is a Legend

  • Jose

    Pokemon Trainer!

  • Connor Devlin

    Ness! Having Lucas again would be cool, and maybe a different color option for Ness to make him look like Ninten. That’d be pretty groovy.

  • Nookling

    Jigglypuff, Mewtwo, Marth, Sheik

  • http://waluigi.com/ Waluigi

    Myself!!!

  • Jaakko S

    Snake ? SNAKEEE ! SNAKEEEEE !

  • Sol Ridgeway

    You know the originals will not be taken out. So Ness, Captain Falcon, and Jigglypuff will be back. Need either Mewtwo or Lucario. The Fire Emblem Guys. Yoshi and Kirby’s gang.

    The one I want back, that I don’t think will make the cut is: Rob

  • WarioForever

    Well, what about Yoshi?

    • http://waluigi.com/ Waluigi

      What about us?

      • WarioForever

        You’re right. What about us!?

  • Sol Ridgeway

    There were a total of 9 characters added and only 5 that were replaced. They were mostly clones.

    1. Roy – replaced by Ike
    2. Dr. Mario – Clone
    3. Mewtwo – replaced by Lucario
    4. Pichu – Clone
    5. Young Link – replaced by Toon Link

    They probably will only cut.

    1. Wolf – replaced by Krystal
    2. Lucus – replace with a different Earthbound Character
    3. Ike – replaced with a different Fire Emblem character
    4. Lucario – Replaced with a same style Pokemon.

    I see them tweaking the Pokemon Trainer.

    Kirby, got a lot of love in the last game being 2 adds. Look for DK to get the love this time.

    They also like to bring friends to characters. Look for Sonic and Wario to brings at least 1 friend. Snake might get the Captain Falcon treatment and be lonely.

    They always bring in 1 Nintendo Hardware character (Game and Watch and Rob) and that is filled by Wii Fit Trainer.

    They brought in 4 new series characters, two from inside Nintendo (Pikman and Kid Icarus) and two outside (Metal Gear Solid and Sonic). We already have Mega Man and Animal Crossing. Look for them to add in 1 more from each. (Hopefully Pacman and Little Mac)

    • TaintedXGamer

      I still hoping on the Rumored Mewtwo and also that Mewtwo has Atm 2 New pokemon X/Y Mega Evolution forms. Mega Mewtwo X and Mega Mewtwo Y.
      I think it would be Cool if they did Add Mewtwo and can Mega evolve into one of these 2 form, Dunno if as Final smash… but it would be pretty awersome.
      http://images.vg247.com/current//2013/09/mega_mewtwo.jpg Pokemon X version
      http://images.vg247.com/current//2013/09/corocoro91316.jpg pokemon Y version

      • Sol Ridgeway

        That would be cool. Maybe they will make a Wii U game and call it Pokemon Z and they will use Mega Mewtwo Z.

  • Majora’s Mask

    NESS AND LUCAS

  • Blugrave

    Keep Wolf just for me :). I want to see Geno from SMRPG and the return of mewtwo.

      • Tim van Broekhoven

        Yeah, I don’t know…

  • Uh Mazing

    Ness. He was one of the only characters I liked in all three games.

  • Uh Mazing

    My biggest problem with the way they announce characters is that they do it one at a time and only with characters already in the game, as if they’re not adding any new ones.

  • Madmagican

    Well considering I’m just going off of past games’ rosters I’ll go with Captain Falcon and/or Marth

  • Mochlum

    I’d love Paper Mario, Ghirahim, Ridley, Prince Fluff, Palutenia, Saki, Shulk, Little Mac, and a few others.

  • Oni

    Sothe – Fire Emblem

  • Rax189

    I’d say pacman (he wasn’t always 3rd party), sonic, bomberman, and Ty the Tasmanian tiger would be beast

  • Vile-Okami

    I’d love to see Amaterasu, but Capcom already has Mega Man in so it’s not likely.

  • Svenson

    Bayonetta.

  • Caitlin♂

    Ness is the best ^ ^

    OFF-TOPIC
    Check out this Kickstarter for a game called Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1236620800/shantae-half-genie-hero?ref=search
    Sorry for posting an off topic comment but I just really want to spread the word for this game

  • Blugrave

    Oh I’d also like the Wonderful 100. All of them as one character. Think of a creative way to do it.

  • Dez

    Eggman sounds so retarded, he was always addressed as Dr. Robotnik which is a million times better than this stupid Eggman crap. It is like calling him Eggman ignores the roots of the classic games and really makes it hard to appreciate Sonic when a character is running around with such a stupid name. I remember all the old Genesis games where he was exclusively referred to as Dr. Robotnik.

    It might be what he is referred to in the modern games, but I just can’t tolerate it and I’m glad I’m not the only one who dislikes renaming old characters much like Princess Toadstool becoming Peach and King Koopa renamed Bowser. The latter two names make very little sense at least within the context of the world the prior two are more logical. This renaming or placing emphasis on new names, etc. really just muddles everything.

  • Stephen Davis

    SOLID SNAKE.

  • Your money

    I would love Nintendo to add chrom or the protagonist from Fire Emblem Awakening.

  • Razo_E

    WOLF. I am the champion with him. They just need to fix his side smash and we’ll be fine.

    • TaintedXGamer

      Wolf is also indirectly a clone character aka Fox with tweaked moves, same for falco. If they do make it in, i expect completely different move-sets. For me I want Sonic move-sets changed, and that final smash….. sonic got a few new moves in Lost worlds and i hope they find a way to integrate those into him .if he comes back (surely he will, i mean we got nintendo and sega partnering up for 3 games, and we did get megaman. So i don’t see him disappearing from the roster anytime soon) :)

    I’m surprised zelda or yoshi hasn’t been announced yet. They can’t get rid of jigglypuff and captin falcon, classic characters. I think they should add Krystal from starfox or camus from the fire emblem series

  • Best Brawerl

    BOMBERMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!! HE’S A LEGEND

  • The True Gamer

    Mewtwo has two mega evolutions in pokemon x and y, and a movie based off of him, so I’m assuming that he might be a charcter

  • Javed Grewal

    I also want to see master chief, haha just kidding! But seriously, there are so many characters I want, but I have a feeling the roster will be smaller since the 3DS will have the same amount of characters as the Wii U, which bums me out :/

  • sup3rnoah

    I want Chrom the most!

  • Arthur Jarret

    Little Mac.But more importantly – this franchise deserves two characters (as the kirby franchise added two characters at once too, king dedede and meta knight): King Hippo.

    It would be my favorite character to play as…
