Nintendo players have been enjoying the hit fighting game series Super Smash Brothers since its initial release on Nintendo 64 in 1999.

Though the core of the game has remained the same (fighting and knocking your opponents off various maps, mastering combos and sometimes using items to win), new courses, items, and characters keep the series fresh and exciting. According to Nintendo's website, over 17 million copies of Ultimate have been sold (as of March 2020).


Nintendo is a company that listens to its fans. Players were delighted to see Banjo and Kazooie join the fight in 2019, and many characters are still being added to the Nintendo Switch version of the game, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

There are many characters we would still love to see added, either as an echo fighter or their own character. Here are some fighters I would love to see added to Ultimate or a future installment of this insanely fun series.

This article was written in the context of lighthearted fun and shouldn't be taken too seriously.

1. Toad (Super Mario Series)

Likelihood: pretty good

Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Bowser's kids, Peach, Wario, and Daisy are all characters from the Super Mario series that are available as fighters in Super Smash Bros. So why not Toad, too? Toad is an important character and he's been playable in games like Mario Kart and Mario Party for years. He'd be a great fighter!


2. Crash Bandicoot (Crash Bandicoot Games)

Likelihood: high

Crash is one of the classic video game characters that most PlayStation players are able to recognize! This lovable creature had a release, N. Sane Trilogy, on PlayStation 4 in 2017, reviving his popularity. With his iconic spin attack and his quests to break boxes and collect fruits, he'd make a great addition to Smash.


3. Kratos (God of War)

Likelihood: very low

God of War isn't a children's game, but Kratos is undeniably a classic video game character. His chain swords would be an awesome weapon to take to Smash! Though God of War (2018) was a great game that won Game of the Year, I'd advocate for his old design.

Couldn't you just see him added to Smash to wreak havoc? Maybe summon a Hydra or even the Greek god Ares as his final smash attack?


4. Darth Vader (Star Wars / Battlefront)

Likelihood: no chance in hell

Thanks to Battlefront, Darth Vader is now technically a video game character! We all know, however, that there's no chance in Vader ever making it to Smash. One can dream, though; wouldn't it be great to mess people up with that deadly lightsaber? His final smash could be using the force!


5. Goku (Dragon Ball Metaseries and Games)

Likelihood: Extremely unlikely

Though mainly an anime (and one of the most well-known in the world, at that), Dragon Ball has had video games for years. Goku would be an excellent addition to Smash, though if he was added, Vegeta and Frieza would undoubtedly have to be included, too.

Unfortunately, since Goku technically belongs in the anime world, chances are slim at best for this hero to make it to the roster.


6. Spyro (Spyro Games)

Likelihood: pretty good

Another classic video game character is the adorable purple dragon, Spyro. Tell me, if we can have Duck Hunt in Smash, then why not this classic scaled little hero?


7. Sailor Moon (Sailor Moon Anime and Games)

Likelihood: no chance in hell

Yes, this adorable and classic anime character does have her own video game series, technically making her eligible for a Smash appearance! Most 80s and 90s kids would recognize this sweet young hero. Sadly, and similarly to Goku, seeing as she's an anime character and a little out of date, it's very unlikely she'll ever make the roster.


8. Waluigi (Super Mario Series)

Likelihood: fairly likely

Waluigi has been in huge demand for Smash for years! Not only is he the hottest male video game character of all time, but he also deserves a spot beside Wario and Daisy as his own character in Smash. Fingers crossed for his well-earned place in Ultimate!


9. Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII)

Likelihood: pretty good

Sephiroth is the main antagonist in what is arguably the best Final Fantasy game, VII. Cloud was added to the roster in Smash 4 for Wii U, so why not his main enemy as well? Sephiroth could bring a lot to the fight with his enormous sword and dashing good looks.


10. Doctor "Eggman" Robotnik (Sonic the Hedgehog Games)

Likelihood: fairly likely

Sonic was added to Super Smash Bros. Brawl in 2007, and he remains the only character from the games to appear on the roster (unless you count Knuckles and Shadow as assist trophies). If we can have Ganondorf and Bowser, then why not Sonic's main enemy, too? Doctor Eggman would be an excellent candidate for Ultimate's roster!


11. Creeper (Minecraft)

Likelihood: unlikely

Minecraft is a long-standing game with a massive following, so one of the classic creatures, such as the Creeper, should definitely have a spot in Smash! If not as a character, then at least as an assist trophy.


12. Chun Li (Street Fighter)

Likelihood: unlikely

One of the first ever female video game characters is Chun Li, who made her debut in Capcom's Street Fighter II: The World Warrior in 1991. This iconic lady, from her epic battle moves to her iconic thighs, would be awesome in glorious HD in Smash! However, since she's already from a fighting game, it might seem redundant to Nintendo simply to port her to another one.


13. Gengar (Pokémon Anime and Games)

Likelihood: reasonably likely

Gengar is one of the most famous Pokémon of all time, maybe due to being one of the first Ghost-types ever or his important role in the anime.

Pikachu, Pichu, Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard (Trainer), Greninja, Jigglypuff, Incineroar, Lucario, and Mewtwo are all playable characters in Smash, so I think it's time for Gengar to be added, too!

With moves like Hypnosis and Shadow Ball, he'd be a brilliant addition to the fighting roster.


14. Rayman (Rayman Series)

Another much-loved character that has stood the test of time is Rayman, who has games stretching all the way back to the Atari! I'd love to see him using Lums and maybe a guest appearance (final smash?) of Globox to challenge other characters on the battlefield.


Nintendo can't adhere to all of their fans' desires, and many of the characters on this list wouldn't technically be allowed, but it would definitely be cool to see some of them added to Ultimate's ever-growing roster, or possibly in a later installment in a new console in the far future. What character would you like to see added to Super Smash Bros.?

      Man, I'd love to see Vader, but I think the rule is the character has to have debuted in a video game, so it probably won't happen.
