You’ve read my previous list, now here’s ten more characters I think are viable Smash candidates, this time I wanna focus on newcomers from franchises that have already been represented. Since so many could fit that bill from a single franchise, I felt like I’d only pick one new representative from each franchise. To be a little more fair, I decided to include alternatives for each pick, I won’t detail the alternatives, but they’re choices I expect if my main choice is wrong, or who knows maybe both go in. In any case let’s begin.
ALTERNATIVE:The only thing preventing Decidueye from joining is if we get a Gen 8 Pokemon, which is apparently releasing this year. Still, I feel Decidueye is a safer bet as we’ve yet to see anything from Gen 8, so if we do get a newer Pokémon, expect them to join as DLC.
ALTERNATIVE:Kamek is another character I want to see fight in these games, he’d probably register more as a Yoshi representative, but he’s still a unique foe, his chances are slim though as he doesn’t have much of a presence outside of being Bowser’s lackey in some games. Still, he’d be a fun choice.
3)BANDANNA WADDLE DEE
ALTERNATIVE:Adeleine is one I know a lot of people want to see and she’d definitely be a unique addition, but I don’t think she goes in because she’s a bit obscure at this point, still it’d be great to see her.
ALTERNATIVE:Luka would be more of a joke character, clumsy and probably filled with poorly made gadgets, while Jeanne sounds like a safer bet, considering she’s too similar to Bayonetta I’d say she has a very small chance, so Luka would be my alternative.
ALTERNATIVE:One of the champions, if not all from Breath of the Wild, considering Link is redesigned to fit that style this time it’s possible we might see Revali, or Urbosa or the other two go in, maybe they just end up being a new final smash, or assistants in character trophies, but I won’t be surprised if they’re new fighters.
ALTERNATIVE:Yeah my alternative is still King K. Rool, he’s a cool unique boss and the most known one in the Donkey Kong series. I do think theres a hurdle for him, as he hasn’t appeared much for a decade now, but who knows, maybe Smash finally brings him in.
ALTERNATIVE:Just to troll people, I wouldn’t be surprised if Slippy joins the fight as a clumsier Fox-clone. People might hate the idea, but picture this, his final smash would be calling for a help, so that’s kinda funny.
ALTERNATIVE:Any new Fire Emblem character, much like Pokemon, that seems to be a thing in this franchise, promote the newer characters.
ALTERNATIVE:Mike Tyson, while he hasn’t been in Punch Out! For decades, his recent playthrough of the game suggests he might be cool if Nintendo used his image again. Besides, sooner or later we’ll get a real person in one of these, it seems fitting if he were the first.
ALTERNATIVE:I could see Magnus being a choice, he’d be unique, but given we have enough sword users, I don’t think he’d be the first choice for a rep.
Well this was fun, I wanna do some more as the game gets closer, so expect to see some more Smash posts, though not soon. Agree? Disagree? Let me know in the comments.
