    Said it before, will say it again - Plok. All the power-ups he had would go perfect for Smash Bros moves. I'll pay for the rights Nintendo, just get him, get Plok!

    Sigh, I know it's not possible because of Rare's defection to Microsoft, but any of the classic N64 Rare characters would be awesome. Banjo-Kazooie would be perfect with all of their moves with B-down being a switch between the pair, Banjo alone, and Kazooie alone with different move sets. Conker would be awesome and quirky like Wario. And Joanna Dark or one of the Jet Force team would be sort of a weird fit but still cool. Not gonna happen, but I'll keep dreaming.

    I agree that there are too many cut-and-paste characters, and/or one-trick ponies on this list. I dont see much point to the various forms of Mario. There are too many clone characters in the game as it is already, so we dont need more of them wasting space. The Tanooki suit would work better as a powerup. Similar to the bunny ears, but rather then increasing your speed, it would let you have floatier jumps, much like peach. Could give you a surprise element on your opponenets by holding the jump button just before you come into the range of their attack before stomping down on their heads.

    What about Sora? With a new Kingdom Hearts arriving this year, it'd be brilliant. If they're going for a square Enix cross over they should make it Sora.

    Before I get into my comment I feel I need to say that Birdo is indeed a man, not a woman, just to clarify. Second I feel like a lot of these wouldn't make good SSB all, they may be great characters but they just wouldn't work, as well as will never happen. Tanooki Mario wouldn't go in for the same reason Dr. Mario wasn't in Brawl, we don't need more Sonic characters, and a Mii? there are a few good picks here but for the most part I disagree with these (sorry I'm usually not so negative but I just couldn't get behind these picks) Also all the people saying Geno, yes he would be awesome, we all want Geno, but he belongs to Square Enix, you really think they'd let Nintendo use his likeness anymore?

    Actually the Mii is very likely, it has been on almost every Mario Wii game. It was explained in the article why each of the characters wouldn't be clones, and while King Hippo and Tom Nook wouldn't work, I really would like to play with wolf link/midna or the Mii, to name a few of the good characters on this list.

    Surprised I haven't seen this yet, but Ridley. For ever and ever Ridley. I'd love to see a Golden Sun person. It probably would be Isaac or Matthew by default, but I'd rather have Sveta or Piers Furthermore, I'd love some Marina Lightyears, some Banjo/Kazooie, and how about for a real stretch, instead of another Pokemon trainer, let's go for the guy from Devil Survivor summoning a team of demons, like say Jack Frost, Pyro Jack, and Black Frost (carefully selected to avoid the vast collection of possibly offensive demons, although the outcry against playable Satan and Lucifer would be great)
  • IceBlueKirby - March 22, 2012 9:42 p.m.

    I just want Geno from Super Mario RPG...or hell, I'd even take Mallow at this point. Mega Man would be pretty cool though.
  • HankVenture - March 22, 2012 9:18 p.m.

    Good list, some characters I wasn't familiar with but seem like they would play pretty well in the game. someone I would throw into the list is a Character from Custom Robo like Ray Mk3 or w/e it's name is.... and if I can just go off the tracks with that I say just make custom Robo models of Gundam fighters. :D
  • kevinmlssu - March 22, 2012 8:52 p.m.

    Needs Geno from Mario RPG
  • AlbVega - March 22, 2012 8:25 p.m.

    Great list, but it needs more Viewtiful Joe and Leon Kennedy.
  • kit07 - March 22, 2012 8:18 p.m.

    phoenix wright perhaps? professor layton? that guy from Ghost Trick? the rider for NES Excite Bike? the paperboy from paperboy? toe jam and earl? those are my suggestions.
  • Fuzunga - March 22, 2012 8:12 p.m.

    No, actually, Dark Pit was first in Brawl as an alternate color for Pit. I'm absolutely 100% convinced that the character in Uprising was a result of that.
  • TyeTheCzar - March 22, 2012 7:50 p.m.

    Umm... I think there's an elephant in the room, GR! In case you forgot, protagonist Shulk from Xenoblade. His Monado would open up a thousand possibilities for his moveset. And don't get me started on what his Final Smash could be. As a bonus, one or two of his allies from the game would be awesome, especially Reyn, Dunban or Riki.
  • obviouslyadouche - March 22, 2012 7:44 p.m.

    Cool article, buuuuuuuuuuuut you overlooked neku from wewy and he would fit in perfectly since he has only been on nintendo systems and will be in the new kingdom hearts.
  • BladedFalcon - March 22, 2012 8:51 p.m.

    Neku's an awesome idea, actually. Or.. y'know... Sho Minamimoto...
  • Nikku7 - March 24, 2012 6:08 p.m.

    Oh, I commented before seeing this, totally agree.
  • codystovall - March 22, 2012 7:39 p.m.

    Also there was an old game called I-Ninja, get that main character for I miss him so. Also Lloyd from tales of symphonia would be cool.
  • codystovall - March 22, 2012 7:21 p.m.

    Really bad list, like its been said too many clones and alternate forms. They need to look into their history and bring out people like they did for pit and I didnt really like the trainer, id rather just be a pokemon with all around good skills like pikachu. Megaman was a nice suggestion but fuck rayman. Alucard over simon. Like someone else said earthworm jim. one of the bots from portal. bring back mewtwo (or another legndary), gamenwatch and rob bounty hunters from metroid, maybe even ridley or dark samus Also no fuckin miis.
  • codystovall - March 22, 2012 7:32 p.m.

    and yeah tom nook would be awesome.
