Challenger Approaching: Your Say!

Who you'd like to see in the next Smash Bros.

A few weeks ago we told you who we'd like to see in the next Smash Bros. game. Of course, it was all pure fantasy - we don't know if Nintendo will ever make another Smash Bros. game but we like to dream so we came up with our list of characters before asking you for your suggestions on the ONM Forum. Our choices were Professor Layton, Little Mac, Mii, Toad, Maxwell, Animal Crossing Boy & Girl, Giratina, Mega Man, Phoenix Wright and Travis Touchdown. Now here are your choices!

Crash Bandicoot: Suggested by Shizle

"He has lots of good options for moves," argues Shizle. "Maybe his Final Smash could be that gun that fires wumpa fruit." Aaah... wumpa fruit. While Sonic collects rings and Mario gorges on mushrooms, Crash Bandicoot picks up wumpa fruit and it's great when he gets hold of his gun and fires the fruit at enemies. Crash is a good choice - while Mario and Sonic have always been considered as the main rivals, people may forget that there was a time in the later 90s when Crash took over from the hog. We'd love to see Crash fighting Mario! Who would win?

Wolf Link: Suggested by Dooby

"I would love to see Link in his wolf form, with Midna riding on back," says Dooby. "She would have some very powerful moves and the wolf has the speed. The Final Smash would be brilliant too. In Twilight Princess you held B to create a field, then you could release B and Wolf Link would strike all enemies within the field. This could be a deadly Final Smash." Too right, but with a move like this wouldn't everyone want to play as Wolf Link? Still, Link changing into a wolf was one of our favourite moments in Twilight Princess so we'd love to do it all over again in Smash Bros.

Blaziken: Suggested by NintendoAllSTAR

NintendoAllSTAR also suggested Deoxys but we like the sound of Blaziken even if it's a less obvious choice. As NintendoAllSTAR explains: "Blaziken's just such a great Pokémon. I love the humanoid ones the most and the fact he excels in fighting just makes him a top choice for Smash Bros. His brilliant legwork would make him the Hwoarang (a character in Tekken) of Smash Bros. and in combination with the fire element, he could execute some pretty fancy attacks. Sky Uppercut would be an obvious recovery." We could also see Blaze Kick being his Final Smash. And talking of leggy Pokémon we'd like to see in the game, how about Hitmonlee?

Bomberman: Suggested by Lukeo10

Like us, Lukeo10 thought that Toad would be a good choice and he also picked Bomberman. As Lukeo10 says he could "throw bombs and put opponents to sleep." He also suggests that Bomberman could bomb himself for a recovery move. By putting a bomb under himself, suggests Luke, he could be blasted high up into the air. Not sure about that Recovery idea, but with a vast array of bombs at his disposal, the 'man would be a great choice for Smash Bros.

Harry Potter: Suggested by Cormsie

"He could team up with Ron and Hermione and perform a powerful curse for a Final Smash, " says Cormsie. Her suggestion of Avada Kedavra is a bit harsh though. For starters it would kill everyone on the screen instantly and secondly, this unforgivable curse isn't exactly Harry's style. You could understand it if you were fighting as Voldemort or Professor Snape but not Harry. It would be good to see him flying around on his broomstick and perhaps using his Patronus. Although, that may only work on Dementors...

    That's a pretty good list, though since smash bros os about NINTENDO I'd leave out the third party characters, one thing, why was ridley not mentioned? He's practicaliy begging to be included.

  2. Callum D Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 09:03

    Wow, I love all these choices!
    Like the Amaterasu one the most though.

  3. KrikenKing Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 09:10

    I'm glad my comment got in. (:

    Brilliant indeed. I do hope Neku's in the next Super Smash Bros. game.

  4. sciqueen Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 09:35

    Great list, except for Harry Potter! What's he got to do with video games?! Replace him with Banjo-Kazooie ;)

  5. mario555 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 09:39

    Hmmm.......

    I reckon Ratchet+Clank should be in it. Obviously, they are not part of Nintendo so they can't..... :cry:

  6. nintendo_guy Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 09:58

    WALUIGI TIME!!!!! Wait-a minute, I'm-a not on-a there! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. joseph363 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 10:05

    What about Rosalina? She has much more experience than peach or daisy! Her Stage could be the observatory obviously! Her attack could be like King DeeDeeDees waddle dee throw and her final smash would be Zero Gravity where all the player float away from the stage and when it wears off they fall to their deaths heeheehee! :D

  8. adamwalker222 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 10:08

    I think the character most of us want to play as is: ourselves. I need not explain that.

    However, I would like to see Zack and Wiki included in the game. With sort of an ice-climber fighting style. Obviously they could have quite a few items at their disposal, such as umbrella from the beginning - extended jumps?

    Final Smash: Zack rings Wiki, and wiki transforms into the snake grabber. A target appears on screen- like with Snake - and the player has to try and grab one of the others. If successful, the enemy is thrown off screen.

    You like? :P

  9. La Goomba Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 10:17

    I know that some realism has to be in place here
    so far the companies supplying the characters have been nintendo, sega and konami.
    Well Konami shouldnt have bothered as Snake doesnt belong in smash he is wierd, Sparkster would ofbeen better.
    So i say bring in Capcom and resume Sega for new charaters.
    For sega obviously the sonic charecters, like tails, knucklesn shadow n that anoying amy, along with aiai, that marracca monkey, robotnik etc.. basically the stars of sega superstar tennis.
    As for Capcom, well i wana see arthur from ghouls n ghosts, megaman n zero, Vietifuljoe, Amaterasu, zack n wiki, well the list can beendlessfrom capcom but these are suitablefor smash andi dont have time atm.

  10. Googoo12444 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 10:29

    How about swaping that unforgiveable curse for expeliarmus. In the books it's kind of his main move, but then that could be a normal or special attack couldn't it?
    Well how about putting a lego figure in there aswell, and Mr Ford from the conduit and one of the beatles and sack boy and darth vader and Wallace and gromit and shrek and Jack sparrow, ok I'm getting a bit carried away here, but if you think any of them are good or at least posible to get in a game for the wii. Lol
    oh yeah, and the master cheif :wink:

  11. Mussacre13 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 11:04

    Banjo-Kazooie would rule
    Kazzooie could shoot random types of eggs for down B and use red feathers fo up B side B could be the beak/shoulder barge and B could be something. when they shield they could use gold feathers and their final smash could be mumbo, bottles, tooty and wumba could smash everyone

  12. pokemon 2009 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 11:15

    id like to see sora from kingdom hearts and the final smash could involve a bunch of diffrent disney characters attacking or have them as an assist trophy.id also love to see silver being a playable character. :P

  13. pokemonworld_95 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 11:22

    i gotta say Sora and Roxas could be like Zelda and Sheik.

    keyblade attacks=yay
    final smash= Sora-Master Form transformation.
    = Roxas-Organisation XIII (all attack briefly.)


    also, wouldn't a basic goomba be an awesome character, if only they could jump.

  14. Goomba bros Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 11:27

    I really dont like this list.it needs King k rool

    Funky kong,wart from mario bros 2 , simon belmont with his whip from castlevania and Meoth mybe all the new pokemon suck.

  15. Zetta Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 12:19

    I think Soma Cruz from Castlevania Aria and Dawn of Sorrow would be a great character. The possibility of moves for him is endless. All of his standard moves could be performed with one of the weapons obtained throughtout the game.
    For his specials he could throw bones, axes or unes for his standard B move, use a demons tail to whip people infront and just behind for his side move, briefly transform into a bat for B and summon a tornado to damage and reflect projectiles with B and Down.
    His Final Smash could summon Death to throw sickles around the screen, whilst at the same time Soma changes into Dracula. Whilst this is active he deals more damage and recieves less, though is not invincible.

  16. eleanorminimew Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 12:35

    I'd love to see Ashely from Another code. For some apparent reason....Or her mum. :) :D For their speacial they could throw sharp cherry blossoms at people. I dunno...

  17. mariofan97 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 12:41

    a koopa would be cool.he could go back into his shell and zoom across the stage like squirtle and maybe turn into a super powerful bowser as a final smash.

  18. Ai64 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 12:44

    So many characters. As much as crash bandicoot, i would like to see spyro and gex.

  19. supersmashercall Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 13:02

    I'd like to see Bowser Jr in the next smash bros,he could e like Zelda, in which he can change into Shadow Mario.
    And for his final smash,he could use the big mecha bowser from Super Mario Sunshine and burn all the other oppenents.

  20. NintendoALLSTAR Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 13:03

    That's a pretty good list, though since smash bros os about NINTENDO I'd leave out the third party characters, one thing, why was ridley not mentioned? He's practicaliy begging to be included.

    Yeah, I agree, he was one of my picks, too. He would fit in no problem (as my post describes). If he was announced to be amongst the character roster in the next Smash I'd be an extremely happy gamer.

    With regards to Hitmonlee, that's actually a nice suggestion, but the reason why I wouldn't go with him is because Blaziken excels at kicks, but is also competant with his fists, which opens up his moveset (also, he just looks so much better).

  21. carnivine chaos Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 13:04

    WHAT THE-!?... WHERE'S VJ!? VIEWTIFUL JOE!? He's all the rage, yanno.

  22. Amethyst Link Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 13:27

    wat about Majoras Mask Link? with the Zora, Goron and Deku Scrub masks and most importantly, the Fierce Deity mask! plus, it wud be similar to SSBM wer he cud hav a completely different sword and shield to the other Links.
    and wat about simply the Fierce Deity? come on, hes like a frickin GOD!
    and maybe even the Skull Kid. he cud teleport like in TP, temporarily turn ppl into deku scrubs like in MM and cud turn into Majoras Wrath by puttin on Majoras Mask. his final smash wud be bringin down the Moon on everyone! plus he has a freaky laugh...

  23. Touchfire Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 13:30

    The Masterchief would be a pretty awesome character. It would never happen though... Not even the Arbiter... But if Snake and Sonic can be in it then anything is possible! And if non-nintendo characters should be playable then Rayman and the Rabbids deserve some love.
    Lara Croft too!
    Toad should also be playable instead of just some human shield for Princess Peach.
    And finally my most wanted request would be the rifle Grunt from Battalion Wars 2. His alternate suits could change him to each different army's costume for the Rifle Grunts.

  24. microhenry Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 13:52

    MEGAMAN

    that is all

  25. sonicfever Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 14:20

    Awesome! My comment got in!

    Me happy.

  26. DonkeyVoodoo Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 14:38

    Simon Belmont from the Castlevania series would be a fantastic edition, think about it he could use his whip, throw holy water and crosses.

    His stage could be Dracula's Castle with its many traps and pitfalls, i'm shocked that he didn't make the list.

  27. ProMac Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 14:47

    Ahhh, nice to see that someone cares about Howarang (of Tekken, it's in the Blaziken section). This list is good but you missed out the Major ones: Klonoa and his mighty wind bullet to use like he does in his games, Spyro (PS1 VERSION), Megaman with all his limitations, Toon Zelda (Down + B to transform into Tetra), Shadow the Hedgehog with all his chaos control/blast/sphere glory, maybe the LEGENDRY DUO (!) Ratchet & Clank could show up. As a "special" company rival guest. THAT WOULD BE AWSOME :D

  28. ShadowHyrule Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 14:47

    Glad mine got in, even though i called Ammy a 'he' xD

  29. python2000 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 15:05

    I have to admit that i do love some of the characters in the new list like shyguy.

    However i still think that the following should have been considered:


    Ristar:
    Final Smash: Shooting Star
    Grabs opponent and head smashes them off screen.

    Dynamite Heady:
    Final Smash: Head Casket
    He changes his head to one of his other heads ie the bomb or vaccum head OR have that "target" thing that helps on the bosses come in an pokes every character onscreen with the spear hes always holding

    Le Chuck:
    Final Smash: Voodoo Root Toss
    He grapples the opponent and does a multiple floor smash then lifts them with the power of voodoo and throws them off screen (like mewtwos attack in smash bros melee)

    Guybrush Threepwood:
    Final Smash: Monkey Kombat
    He calls in a load of monkeys that trample the stage followed by a the huge metal monkey from monkey Island 4.

    Sam &/or max:
    Final Smash: Joy Ride
    Sam and/or Max can run off screen and jump in to their cop car and drive all over the stage flinging them off the stage (a bit like the FZero stage in melee)

  30. ploiper Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 15:05

    yay my sugestion got in :)

    some very good other sugestions.

  31. ShadowofPain Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 15:18

    Whoever chose Earthworm Jim deserves an award.

  32. niggo Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 15:33

    Simon Belmont from the Castlevania series would be a fantastic edition, think about it he could use his whip, throw holy water and crosses.

    His stage could be Dracula's Castle with its many traps and pitfalls, i'm shocked that he didn't make the list.

    Simon should have been in Brawl instead of Snake, he'd have earned it. Putting Snake in the game over Simon Belmont was unforgivable.

    Blaziken would be great, even if he was just a Captain Falcon clone. I can't think of a Pokémon I like more than him. Deoxys would be neat too.

  33. Leecario Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 16:08

    I'd like some more Sonic Characters to come into it, as well as Roy to come back. Some OTHER characters from good Nintendo series' would be great, such as one of the many forms of Link (Wolf, Deku, Zora, Goron, etc.) or Krystal from Starfox.

  34. ZeroX9876 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 16:13

    Simon Belmont would be great, since castlevania rebirth is coming to the wii and I'm sure that konami would be pleased to see another of their character along snake in smash.

    Megaman AND Zero would be nice. I love megaman, but Zero would be extremely good. His move could be very different from Link and marth, since it's a light saber. Put megaman X and zero together on the same character, just like Zelda/Sheik, pokemon trainer.

    More third party character would be very nice and could grow the sales of 3rd party games.

    On 1st party side, in melee, roy and marth was from fire emblem, games that didn't come overseas, and playing them in melee was a great marketing for the fire emblem that was coming to gba (and gamecube after that).

  35. ploiper Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 16:33

    Whoever chose Earthworm Jim deserves an award.

    what do i get?

  36. nintendo_munki Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 16:43

    no 1 - you did think of bomberman - he was in there, but a smaller box, like leon kennedy

    no 2 - fawful anybody? he could use his hat as a recovery, his final smash would involve a meteor storm from said hat, he could throw beans and maybe just be totally awesome. but the main things are his taunts - I HAVE FURY, being shouted at sonic? awesome.

    no 3 - SHY GUY! YAY! id already worked his moves out n everything! upB could be grabbing onto a flyguy, sideB could be charging a headbutt thing (like pikachu and luigi), B could be frisbeeing his mask at someone and downB could be a little shyguy spinny tornado thing. FINAL SMASH = GINAT, FAT shy guy from yoshis island. you know, the ones that give enormous egss when you eat? he could stomp around like nobodies business! or summon an army of flyguys like pit does.


    awesomeness.

  37. mattyboy Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 16:50

    red steel 2 guy

  38. ProMac Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 17:01

    Whoever chose Earthworm Jim deserves an award.

    what do i get?

    A shoe lace.

  39. KoopaKart Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 17:10

    I know it isnt really main enough but Birdo her final smash could be that huge egg from MSCF.
    normal-throws bow like boomerang
    side-spinny thing from MSCF
    up-uses her bow like wings to fly for a short time (ok i got a bit stuck for the up move)

    Also JUST YESTERDAY me and my friend were saying wolf link should be in it with that very same move as a final smash. We said:
    normal-spin attack (like in the game)
    side-midnas red hand (it grabs people and throws them)
    up-the Z target jump (not as good as in the game)
    he could also have various bite attacks as smashes.

  40. Kolo67 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 17:21

    I'd have to say that I would like to see all of the Bounty Hunters from Metroid be in.

  41. Jimmybidz Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 17:26

    Professor Layton And Luke
    It Would Be Cool To Either Play In
    St. Mystere (1st Game)
    On The Train Or In The Castle(2nd Game)
    London Or Even You Go Back In Time(3rd Game)
    How Cool And For Final Smash Either
    The Ferris Wheel Comes Along
    Layton Hops In Laytonmobile And Runs Them Over
    Or Even Layton Turns Around And Says
    " You There *Points* " And Whoever Is In His Pointing Direction Gets K.Oed Off The Screen

    :lol: :lol:

  42. pokedude64 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 17:39

    being the bonker i am, i think a fludd on legs would be an awsome character
    B=water squirt (like squirtles water gun)
    side+B=turbo dash
    up+B=hover nozzle to fly for a while
    down+B=rocket blast (like warios fart)

    final smash:A massive water twister comes from fludds nozzle and washes up any body in the way(like mario finale)

  43. onmfanatic1 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 17:41

    What about Vaan from Final Fantasy XII? His Final Smash could be like his quickening. Also a good Assist trophy would be a raposa. Maybe Wilfre. He he he.

  44. akatsukiworm Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 17:43

    blaziken would be good but zack & wiki is the best choice ever the final smash could be that flying pirate ship and you use the big robotic arm to crush everyone

  45. link_to_wilf Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 17:55

    i reckon someone like spyro or maybe even jonny napalm from guitar hero?

  46. uchiha_mustang Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 17:56

    i think king K.Rool and Ridley and maybe vaati

  47. GamerKid Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 18:13

    Simon Belmont from the Castlevania series would be a fantastic edition, think about it he could use his whip, throw holy water and crosses.

    What about the three legendary birds :D :D :D

    But simon instead of snake is plain stupid castlevania is gay its the bad side of kojami mgs is the good side idiot

  48. smashbrosrox Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 18:34

    I personally think that third party characters shouldn't be included, Sonic and Snake felt out of place to me. Even if they were decent additions, I would have prefered if those slots had gone to deserving Nintendo characters.

  49. ProMac Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 20:16

    I personally think that third party characters shouldn't be included, Sonic and Snake felt out of place to me.

    DIE :evil:

  50. laguz Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 20:49

    i don't really like that list tbh.

    too many 3rd party characters, we need king k rool, bowser junior, and other nintendo villains.

  51. Roxas mc Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 21:06

    sora from the kingdom hearts series would be brilient.
    his final smash could be like links.

  52. NintenGO Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 21:10

    Dimentio! His attacks would include shooting magic, cloning himself to confuse people, controlling one of the players to attack a targeted player (cannot be spammed) and his final smash: He transforms into super Dimentio, and aims then fires.

  53. Sparhawk43 Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 22:12

    i like that sora - roxas idea said a couple of pages ago where they are like zelda - sheik

    i'd say soras final smash would be turning into any of his drive forms randomly, including anti form :P

    and roxas could have that ridiculously powerful limit break he has when he dual wields.

    this is assuming there is final smashes in the next one. if there is even another one

  54. kwertie Saturday 17th Oct 2009 at 23:48

    Some of these suggestions seem to miss the point of what Smash is (or was) all about. A celebration and library of all things Nintendo.

    Crash strikes me as the worst of the suggestions. Ok I guess his system background kind of runs in a similar way to Sonic, but given the rivalry, Sonic's inclusion is a bit of a special case. I don't think Crash has made that much of an impact on Nintendo systems to be justified, and it wasn't until I googled that I found there were actual crash games released for Nintendo consoles.

    Harry Potter is not console specific and doesn't really follow the same spirit as the other characters.

    Earthworm Jim is totally feasible, and one I totally forgot about.

    Bomberman has great potential and I'm surprised he wasn't included seeing as Konami allowed Snake (Hudsonsoft is a company of Konami).

    I'd personally like to see Travis (No More Heroes) or Ray Bryce (Disaster) and Megaman. Unfortunately, as awesome as Ray and Travis are, I don't think they are well known enough as they have only been in 1 game each so far.

  55. jamespellis2 Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 09:44

    I would like a Toon Zelda that turned to tetra like Shiek does. that or a Toon Link with moves that are not cloned from link. :D

  56. mint45 Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 10:14

    a boo, tabuu as a playable chacterer loads ah bosses such as ridley third party caricters such as bomberman and more metroid charicters i mean were's all the hunters from hunters :o

  57. Googoo12444 Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 10:31

    I have to admit that i do love some of the characters in the new list like shyguy.

    However i still think that the following should have been considered:

    Le Chuck:
    Final Smash: Voodoo Root Toss
    He grapples the opponent and does a multiple floor smash then lifts them with the power of voodoo and throws them off screen (like mewtwos attack in smash bros melee)

    Guybrush Threepwood:
    Final Smash: Monkey Kombat

    [i]He calls in a load of monkeys that trample the stage followed by a the huge metal monkey from monkey Island 4[i]

    Well I think that guybrush threepwood's final smash would have to be something to do with sword fighting insults, rubber chickens with pulleys in the middle and monkeys. My opinion anyway.

  58. Super Link Aran Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 11:12

    Leon Kennedy, the most iconic representative for Resi on the Nintendo Consoles. He'd probably be a bit like a Snake clone but I don't mind clones as long as they've got different strengths.
    So standard attacks like pistol, grenades (but incendiary to make him different) and shotgun. But with short range knife attacks too.
    Two ideas for the final smash:
    1. Snake clone, aim at screen but weapon being the broken butterfly and you have to get direct hits.
    2. Completely different, Leon drives away on a jet ski and the stage fills with los ganados and obviously one salvador (chainsaw man). The ganados deal some serious damage until leon fires a super rocket launcher into the stage destroying the ganados and dealing a little extra damage to contenders ending the smash.

  59. Jackmookin Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 12:06

    aside that I really dont like this game unless its in multiplayer, the girl and boy from animal crossing :D and some villagers like....

    <<<<< Melba!!

  60. layton lover Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 12:41

    Just to put htis to bed Layton should never be in Smash Bros. because he is far too gentlemanly to fight. I dont think Ninty should completely change their portrayol of Layton and Luke purely for the sake of a afew more charactors.

    Don Paolo could be a possibilty although it would be strange having the enemy but not the good guy in the game.

    I like the bomberman idea, and the recovery move is just like Lucas's and Ness's so it would work. Litle king is a cool idea too and why is no one mentioning Spyro?

    Oh and by the way Layton rules!!

  61. smashbrosrox Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 15:04

    I personally think that third party characters shouldn't be included, Sonic and Snake felt out of place to me.

    DIE :evil:

    Grow up.

  62. pokemaster2473 Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 16:05

    What about the wii fit balance board :?: His final smash could be calling you obese so that you run off the stage crying. He could also throw hula hoops at you and make you do painful yoga positions. The possibilities are endless. :D

  63. Athrun888 Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 16:06

    I agree, non nintendo characters should not be in these games, these games are about nintendo not these other companies, plus there are plenty of nintendo characters I was to be honest was disgusted were missing from brawl.

    1: Ridliy, come on these games need more metroid characters and he fits perfectly.
    2: more characters from the metroid series such as the fellow hunters and perhaps a space pirate.
    3: F-zero needs more characters as well, blood falcon and goroh samaria for starters.
    4:Bring back Roy from melee and ad a few characters such as lin and the black knight.
    5: Zant, why was he missing, I can understand some of the lesser known nintendo series only having one character but we need more zelda characters such as zant and maybe the skull kid.

    That's all for now, as you can see there's plenty of potential, and I haven't even said half of what could be included.

    I absolutely hate Crash Bandicoot, ranks highly among the most annoying characters ever.

    My honest feeling is that 3rd party characters don't belong in Smash Bros. Sonic and Snake were OK, but if there are too many it'll be third party overkill. Besides, Smash Bros is meant to be a celebration of all things Nintendo.

  65. SuperSaiyanSonic Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 16:42

    It may be a little bit obvious, but I was thinking Mii would be a very good competitor.
    I know you might be thinking "That sucks! What on earth can Mii do?" And to that I reply, "Well, armed with a Wii Remote and Nunchuck, he can be quite a deadly force."
    I even have a potential, though incomplete, moveset for him, most of which incorporate the Wii Remote and Nunchuck in some way.
    His A-AAA Combo would be a simple Punch-backhand-uppercut combo. His Up-Power would be an uppercut with the Remote, Forward-Power would have him/her spin the Nunchuck on its wire in front of him/her, and his/her Down-Power would have him/her sweep the Nunchuck at the enemy's feet.
    And of course, the Smash Attacks. His/her Up-Smash can make him/her twirl them both by the wire, hitting the opponent multiple times. Forward-Smash is a fierce "slap" with both the Nunchuck and the Wii Remote. And Down-Smash is similar to the Down-Power, but by spinning, s/he hits both sides of him/her, and twice.
    Let's not forget the Specials. Normal Special would have the Mii point the cursor at the enemy, stunning them for a second or so for an easy hit (alluring to the Wii's pointing's precision). Similar to ZS Samus' gun, but the stun time is fixed in this case. Down Special would transform the Wii Remote and Nunchuck into a Sword and Sheild respectively for a few seconds, allowing for stronger, albeit slower and more imprecise, hits and easier blocking. Forward Special would turn the Wii Remote into a massive mallet, allowing Mii to totally smash the enemy! And Up Special would have Mii throw the Nunchuck diagonally upwards to attack an enemy. Great as a Tether Grab.
    The Final Smash would definately have to be "Mii Parade", named after the section of the Mii Channel. Miis from your system will rampage throughout the stage, some just rushing into people, many more armed with Wii Sports equipment, bombarding people with tennis balls, golf balls, baseballs, and bowling balls, each in increasing damage and lowered frequency than the last. Of course, if you don't have enough Miis on your system, the Miis from Wii Sports can take over.

    See? Miis aren't all useless.

  66. ILoveWii Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 16:46

    I think Layle from Crystal Bearers would be a great character to play as. He'd be able to use his awesome psychic-like powers to move people about the stage, and he'd be able to glide very well too.

    His Final Smash would probably be something regarding crystals and whatnot.

  67. niggo Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 17:13

    Simon Belmont from the Castlevania series would be a fantastic edition, think about it he could use his whip, throw holy water and crosses.

    His stage could be Dracula's Castle with its many traps and pitfalls, i'm shocked that he didn't make the list.

    Simon should have been in Brawl instead of Snake, he'd have earned it. Putting Snake in the game over Simon Belmont was unforgivable.

    Blaziken would be great, even if he was just a Captain Falcon clone. I can't think of a Pokémon I like more than him. Deoxys would be neat too.


    What about the three legendary birds :D :D :D

    But simon instead of snake is plain stupid castlevania is gay its the bad side of kojami mgs is the good side idiot

    Can't tell if troll...

  68. born from phazon Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 17:35

    wheres dark samus???? and sa-x????

  69. Red-Wolf Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 18:26

    I would love to see Geno from Super Mario RPG in Smash Bros. He was my favourite character and the huge array of powerful weapons hidden in his arms would make him a deadly opponent. Final Smash: Geno Flash! Turns into a cannon and a target cursor appears. Aim the cursor and press A to launch a huge blast that spreads Smart Bomb style and wipes out everyone in the area. Best. Fighter. Ever.

  70. jamboodle Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 19:00

    Garchomp? It could perform Dragon Rush as a Final Smash and boast nice speed.
    Maybe Ricky From Loz: Oracle of Seasons/Ages, whirl up a giant tornado with his arms and fling everyone all over the place.
    Anyway, Sonic and Snake is more than enough 3rd party characters for Super Smash Bros. So I wouldn't like to see anymore flooding the whole roster. This is what I originally saw as a Nintendo All-star brawl.

  71. wiiiscool22 Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 19:36

    I'd like to see a luma. Then, as final smash, it could grow to a ridicluous size and then bump into enmies!!!!!!!!

    P.S: the comet observitory would make a good stage!!!!

  72. Mario642 Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 19:56

    Maxwell.

    He would have lenty of options for moves, and his Final Smash would obviously be a black hole or a...wait for it...large fire vent! Or maybe an OBL...What do you think?

  73. geezer1993 Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 20:28

    Zant from Twilight Princess
    Normal attacks: the two swords he uses and just normal swipe atttacks. his jump would be used to get back on the level.
    Final Smash: He would turn into a GIANT head and blast everyone with lasrs from his eyes or he could summon load of tweely to attack everyone.

  74. python2000 Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 20:28

    I have to admit that i do love some of the characters in the new list like shyguy.

    However i still think that the following should have been considered:

    Le Chuck:
    Final Smash: Voodoo Root Toss
    He grapples the opponent and does a multiple floor smash then lifts them with the power of voodoo and throws them off screen (like mewtwos attack in smash bros melee)

    Guybrush Threepwood:
    Final Smash: Monkey Kombat

    [i]He calls in a load of monkeys that trample the stage followed by a the huge metal monkey from monkey Island 4[i]

    Well I think that guybrush threepwood's final smash would have to be something to do with sword fighting insults, rubber chickens with pulleys in the middle and monkeys. My opinion anyway.

    to be honest i forgot about the rubber chickens with the pulleys haha they could introduce it as a special weapon for guybrush and le chuck.
    as for the sword fighting insults they could be apart of guybrushs taunts

  75. Juan777 Sunday 18th Oct 2009 at 21:44

    The characters the I want arent very popular but still they are pretty cool! I'm 100% sure they have what it takes to fight in Brawl :D

    1. Raymond Bryce, the main character from Disaster: Day of Crisis. If you had already played and finished the game, you will know how good Ray is in hand to hand combat. He also knows how to use pistols, shotguns, machine guns and more. The Stage could be the ruins of Blue Ridge City which eventually gets hit by a tsunami or the fire tornado.. maybe an earthquake.
    The Final Smash would be almost like Olimar's, Ray scapes of the screen while the other characters get hit by a massive Tsunami!! or maybe The Tornado!!! who knows :shock: !!!!

    2. Raziel, from the series Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 1 & 2 .I know that this game came in the Playstation and that is why (sadly) we wont see him in Smash Bros, but apart from that he would make an amasing character!! he has a spirit sword whichs means that he has some range, he is able to jump high and even though his wings are broken he can could use them like Peach's umbrella! if you dont have any idea about who he is then go to youtube and type his name!. For the stage.. a cementery would be a good place or somewhere in the spirit realm!
    The Final Smash..hmm... i know! something like Luigi's!! the whole screen gets negative, all the characters are unable to move and Raziel could hit them for certain amount of time!! after that everything goes back to normal! and the character get sent far away! :D

  76. joshy v Monday 19th Oct 2009 at 01:43

  77. joshy v Monday 19th Oct 2009 at 02:01

    Mr. Sandman (Punch out!!)

    B: quick punch (simple and strong)

    B </>: "Stand still!" (a stronger punch with a delay)

    B ^: mega uppercut (will send an opponent straight up and is a good recovery)

    B v: "Night night!" (a chargable punch and stuns the character at full charge)

    Final S: "DREAM LAND!!!" (Mr. Sandman has a temporary effect, he will randomly say "BOO!" which will shortly stun all characters, when you press B he will do 3 ridiculously strong uppercuts very quickly, the effect lasts for 10 seconds)

  78. joshy v Monday 19th Oct 2009 at 02:24

    Baby Mario Bros.

    B: Hammer bash (the hammers they recieved from the hammer bros, chargable)
    B </>: Cartwheels (their playful nature is painful in smash bros. lol)
    B ^: Hat 'a' chute (their massive hats are put to good use here as they pick up wind and lift the babies off the ground)
    B v: Tantrum (keep bashing the button to make them cry for longer, their tears push away opponents while nearby opponents will be temporarily stunned by their bellowing)
    Final S: Chain Chomp (just like in MK: DD these babies have a weird friendship with one Chain Chomp, they get pulled around on the chain while the Chomp will rapidly go around chomping every opponent in sight)

  79. ujua7 Monday 19th Oct 2009 at 09:04

    i think there should be Claire Redfield from Resident Evil
    Her stage would be inside an old creepy house and her special move would be to summon a load of zombies.

  80. Ratchet14 Monday 19th Oct 2009 at 10:12

    I would like to se shadow the hedgehog as a playable character. I think this would be good because with sonic being in brawl, shadow could add a deeper story element to the whole game, as long as he doesnt have that stupid gun. Failing that, Eggman wouild do just fine.

  81. ConorMcC Monday 19th Oct 2009 at 12:55

    Spyro's a legend and he would make a cool Smash Bros. character. He could fly around the sky hooting fire and his level could be a fiery volcano or that castle in one of his games. He would taunt everyone with his annoying voice.

  82. luke4liverpool Monday 19th Oct 2009 at 13:37

    ME!!!...well Mii's..yes it might be gimmickey but it would probly work well like in mario kart...mabye 2 outfits for mii's?

  83. Mr Resettio Monday 19th Oct 2009 at 16:11

    sob... you didnt out in my awesme Masked Link idea... :cry:

  84. Doonie Monday 19th Oct 2009 at 18:26

    Instead of blazekin have the pokemon trainer have the choice of all the starter pokemon depending on which color scheme you pick. So you can have the original 3 or the ones from gold and silver, then ruby and sapphire and diamond and pearl. This would be a great way to use that character. Another suggestion i would have is that you randomize which level they are in brawl they where fixed so maybe sometimes you get blastoise instead of charazard, and charmander instead of squirtle ect.

  85. ngharis Tuesday 20th Oct 2009 at 07:40

    a character that i would love to see if viewtiful joe
    he is one of my favorite video game characters of all time and his moves fit in this game pretty well

  86. Lukeo10 Tuesday 20th Oct 2009 at 08:14

    Yes! 1 of mine got in, well, 1 out of 5-7 :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    you get two thumbs up for that awesome idea, nintendo make it happen :D

  88. Red-Wolf Tuesday 20th Oct 2009 at 09:34

    Even though he's a manga character, I'd love to see Ginji Amano from The GetBackers in it, with his electricity powers being put to brilliant use. Final Smash: Lightning Rod. Sticks his finger in the air and a massive lightning bolt hits him and bakes everyone around him (like Pikachu's down B attack but 200 times bigger and 4000 times more powerful, not stopped by scenary). but of course he's a manga character.

  89. pikpik Tuesday 20th Oct 2009 at 15:08

    Ok how about Louie from pimin he would have the same B atack but his side B would be he uses the pikmin like a wip basicaly an iniana jones inspired attack down and B would be the swarming thind you could do by pressing down on the wii remote (new play control pikmin controls) up and B would be a bit like squirtles the pikmin wold build a bridge that louie can run accross to get back to the stage(or hirt peole)if someone got caught up in this the would be hit by a barage of sticks the pikmin had already used san A attacks and smash attacks as olimar but his finnalsmash would be he gets on the titan dweivel final boss from pikmin 2 and ith uses all the items it had on the game to knock your enimies of the stage what do you thinkgood for a chracter fro pikmin or what?

  90. mattardis Tuesday 20th Oct 2009 at 15:22

    i think darkrai would be brilliant
    here is a moveset idea

    b = shadow ball
    b> = shadow claw
    b^ = shadow force (he teleports upwards)
    b down = dark pulse

    his final smash would be dark void

  91. PGdafrog Tuesday 20th Oct 2009 at 20:33

    i want to see de blob in smash bros. he could have a stage where a picture of the person whos winning is painted on the buildings during the match. his final smash would be making an INKT tank come and blow up everyone else.

  92. Layton-boy Tuesday 20th Oct 2009 at 20:46

    I think I speak for loads of people when I say

    Professor Layton & Luke

    Final Smash: Ferris wheel
    "Get away luke, RUN!" and then a giant ferris wheel rolls throught the stange demolishing everything but Luke & Layton! :twisted:

  93. starfox1994 Wednesday 21st Oct 2009 at 09:35

    Definitely Abe from the oddworld series.

    Up special - jump through a bird portal to move
    side special - slap
    down special - roll
    regular special - spooce orb, like arm cannon or aura sphere

    final smash - turn into shrykull and kill everyone on the screen.

  94. maxg424 Friday 23rd Oct 2009 at 17:35

    soap from modern warfare and your guy in fallout3 shoad in the next ssb

    soaps final smash
    a huge artillery strike hits the stage and does massive damage to everyone but soap

    lone wanderer final smash
    the nukeular anomaly perk would be the perfict final smash :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

  95. hyuga Saturday 24th Oct 2009 at 19:49

    Koopa troopa is the best option

    his final smash should be a stampede of koopa's rushing through the stage damaging and pushing enemies of the stage

    Then we could have para-troopa

    his final smash should be suicidal bombing para-troopa's divebombing the stage.

    You could also have it like samus where after their final smashes they transform into the other.

  96. Dragonite97 Tuesday 27th Oct 2009 at 09:59

    Surely if they have solid snake they sould have his companion, Raiden.

  97. Amethyst Link Tuesday 27th Oct 2009 at 15:23

    I'd like some more Sonic Characters to come into it, as well as Roy to come back. Some OTHER characters from good Nintendo series' would be great, such as one of the many forms of Link (Wolf, Deku, Zora, Goron, etc.) or Krystal from Starfox.

    I sooo agree! Roy was one of my favourite characters! Plus it does seem odd that Wolf Link didn't get a look-in for SSBB. He does have an awkward fighting style but still...

  98. Amethyst Link Tuesday 27th Oct 2009 at 15:27

    Definitely Abe from the oddworld series.

    Up special - jump through a bird portal to move
    side special - slap
    down special - roll
    regular special - spooce orb, like arm cannon or aura sphere

    final smash - turn into shrykull and kill everyone on the screen.

    OMG I love your idea! Abe owns! Maybe he could even possess other players? I'd love to see the Shrykull blast everything into bits!

  99. MeTa RiDlEy 94 Saturday 31st Oct 2009 at 20:37

    i think that joanna dark would be a pretty cool charcter sort of like a solid snake kinda think

  100. Red-Wolf Monday 2nd Nov 2009 at 13:14

    Onto manga characters, I'd love to see Naruto!

    B: Shadow Clone

    Side B: Rasengan

    Up B: Shadow Clone Footstool

    Down B: Substitution Jutsu

    Final Smash: Gamabunta. Summons Gamabunta who lands on the stage and hurts people. Then he draws his sword and swipes twice to cause huge damage, then disappears.

    up taunt: Sexy Jutsu

    side taunt: "I'm gonna kick your butt!"

    down taunt: sits down and eats some ramen

  101. mario champ Monday 2nd Nov 2009 at 16:00

    silver and/or shadow would be exelent on brawl as fighting charecters come on you cant have only sonic theyd have similer moves to sonic but for final smash silver could have turn into a blue ball of energy to fly into people (like pikachus volt tackle)ansd shadow could have the same but black and red

  102. gingerninja96 Wednesday 18th Nov 2009 at 17:08

    Maybe the Drawn to Life guy.
    Final Smash: A massive paint explosion!!

    Or the guy from Scribblenauts.
    Final Smash: he makes hundreds of dinosaurs stampeed all over the place.

  103. jaiv Monday 14th Dec 2009 at 19:57

    Where's Spiderman or Shadow the hedgehog???

  104. smurf_11 Tuesday 22nd Dec 2009 at 16:17

    Here r my top 5 ideas:
    1.The King from Little Kings Story!
    Final smash: He could call in one of those dragons that are in the game cos he would burn and crush everyone!!!
    2.Mama from Cooking Mama
    Final smash: She drops a giant bowl of salad from the sky that squishes everyone!
    3.Someone from Guitar Hero
    Final smash:A massive set of speakers that blows everyone off the edge
    4.Phantom Zelda from Spirit Tracks
    Final smash:Its sword grows and it swings the sword around loads!
    5.Toad from the mario games
    Final smash:something to do with mushrooms...........

  105. Fury5000 Thursday 15th Mar 2012 at 17:54

    I would LOVE to have the Angry Birds, Red, Yellow, and maybe Black to join the Brawl! Here are my ideas for Final Smashes:

    Red Bird: The red bird could whip out a huge catapult, and call in smaller versions of himself to launch! The birds could, after landing, fly around the arena, causing more damage on impact. Nifty.

    Yellow Bird: Like Ike's Final Smash in Brawl, Yellow could do one initial zoom around the arena. The players hit will be flung into the air, where yellow will slash through at top speed about 10 times. The first attack will be crucial.

    Black Bird: The Black bird's final smash will involve crashes and explosions, like in Angry Birds. The Black Bird whips out about 20 large bombs, flies upwards, and starts a bit of an air raid. Players hit will be blasted helplessly upwards. But there is even more coolness to this move. Players hit will also have their recovery move unfunctional, so they can't recover and simply flop helplessly into the pit. Bye bye.

    Hope you like my ideas, and I can't wait for the next version of Super Smash Bros. to come out!
