13 Characters We Want Added to “Super Smash Bros.”
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 15 million copies of Ultimate have been sold (as of September 2019).
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.
1. Toad (Super Mario Series)
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)
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)
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)
Thanks to Battlefront, Darth Vader is now technically a video game character! Wouldn't it be great to mess people up in Smash Bros. with that deadly lightsaber? his final smash could be using the force!
5. Goku (Dragon Ball Metaseries and Games)
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.
6. Spyro (Spyro Games)
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)
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, seeing as she's mostly an anime character and a little out of date, it's unlikely she'll ever make the roster.
8. Waluigi (Super Mario Series)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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!
13. Gengar (Pokémon Anime and Games)
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.
Nintendo can't adhere to all of their fans' desires, but it would definitely be cool to see the above characters 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.?
