Due to the fantastic announcement today that Rosalina will be in the new Smash Bros, I've decided to do something that no one else in the world has thought of: make a list about what characters I think should be in a Smash Bros game. I'm going to try and think outside the box a little more than other lists, though, so you won't have to read the same suggestions that you've read a hundred times before.
This list is in no particular order of who I think is the most worthy or whatnot. I'm just writing this down as they pop into my head, mostly. And I'm going to do my best to stick to one character per game. Please note that Sakurai has already stated that he's most likely not going overboard on the characters in Smash Wii U/3DS, so I'll be lucky if even one of these characters makes it in.
#6: Tetra, from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Now, I'm not really a fan of Toon Link in Smash, but since he's back for this game, we may as well get Tetra in there too. Unlike Toon Link, however, Tetra wouldn't just be a clone. Some attacks could be based off of Link's moves, like if they gave her bombs to throw, but most of the moves would be brand new. Her normal attacks could feature a scimitar, and I'm not quite sure what I'd want for her B moves, but that's why I'm not Sakurai. Her Final Smash would be firing cannons from her ship, sort of like Solid Snake's Final Smash in Brawl. Speaking of which...
#5: Big Boss, from Metal Gear Solid V
Okay, imagine if Hideo Kojima wanted to bring one of the Snakes back for another round in the Smash series. As much as I'd like Solid Snake to come back, it would make far more since to have Big Boss (AKA Naked Snake) in the roster to advertise MGSV. You wouldn't even need to change a lot from Solid Snake in Brawl, aside from one or two weapons and balancing. If they changed his Final Smash... I dunno. Make it that giant fire whale from The Phantom Pain's trailer or something.
#4: Palutena, from Kid Icarus Uprising
There are a lot of incredible characters in Uprising, but I'm going with Palutena because she's the most likely candidate from the bunch, and she probably wouldn't use a sword, which is good considering there are like eight hundred sword wielders in Smash. That's too many. Palutena would probably use a combination of a staff and magic, which would make for some fun combos. I can't really think of a good Final Smash for her that wouldn't just be a rehash of Pit's, so I'll let someone in the comments tell me what that should be.
And if she isn't voiced by Ali Hillis then the whole character is ruined.
#3: Kumatora, from Mother 3
Mother 3 is the best game you never got a chance to play, and Kumatora happens to be my favorite character from said game. The very first time you speak to her in Mother 3, she says, and this is a direct quote, "I got my leg caught in this stupid-ass trap. I can't afford to die here, so I was thinkin' about cuttin' my foot off." She's pretty awesome. Admittedly, a lot of her moves would more or less be straight rips of Ness and Lucas's moves, but I don't care! She needs to be in this game, dammit! Her Final Smash would be PK Starstorm, and unlike with Ness and Lucas, this would actually be a series accurate move.
#2: Groose, from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
I had a hard time picking between Groose and Ghirahim, but ultimately, Groose would just be more interesting. His attacks would most likely be a bunch of punches and kicks, and perhaps one of his B moves would involve his Loftwing in some way. The big thing this character would have to get right, is his Final Smash, which MUST Groosenator.
#1: Bayonetta, from Bayonetta 2
(Fun fact: this was the only picture of Bayo I could find that wouldn't get me banned from GIO.)
There is absolutely no reason whatsoever that Bayonetta should not be featured in the new Smash Bros. In fact, I will be SHOCKED if she is not included, because it makes perfect sense to put her on the roster. With Nintendo publishing Bayonetta 2, Nintendo will obviously want their hardcore fans to purchase the game, and what better way to do that than add her into a game that all of their hardcore fans WILL buy? Throw in a few levels and songs from and based around Bayonetta 2, and the hype train will be at its maximum capacity. She's such an easy character to make, too! All of her regular moves should be based around her combos from her respective games, and the B moves would be based on the weapons you can acquire throughout the story. Her Final Smash should be the demons she summons with her hair to kill bosses in the first game. As an alternate costume, you can have Jeanne! That's basically two characters in one! You're welcome, Nintendo.
Hell, if you don't put Bayonetta in, throw Luka in as an assist trophy. Or even do something with Wonder Red and his team! JUST GIVE PLATINUM SOME LOVE, NINTENDO. BE THE HEROES THAT CAPCPOM AND SEGA COULDN'T.
So what do you guys think? Were my suggestions predictable? Was I right, or am I super dumb for wanting this characters? Let me know in the comments below!
