Super Smash Bros. Central’s TOP 10 DLC Fighter Wishlist!

#10. Bandana Dee (Kirby)

This seemingly innocent and adorable Waddle Dee carries a spear and knows how to use it. Bandana Dee would make a great addition to Smash Bros. and would bring a unique moveset with him utilizing his spear of course. Also the Kirby Dream crew of Smash Bros. is missing its 4th musketeer. Let’s reunite them. #BandanaDee4Smash

#9. Rayman (Rayman)

The vividly imaginative and comedic character with the disassembled floating body, Rayman is an both an iconic and classic video game character. He would fit right in a battle with Mario, Sonic, Mega Man and Pac-man. With his wacky and highly animated personality and fighting style he would be right at home in Super Smash Bros. #Rayman4Smash

#8. Magolor (Kirby)

The Smash Bros. Community has spoken and they think the roster needs more villains. A personal favorite of ours is Magolor! If the Kirby Series were to introduce another villain in Smash Bros. it would be this guy. And a villain indeed he is, he may be cute but do not let him fool you he is more devious than King DeDeDe. #Magolor4Smash

#7. Ridley  (Metroid)

The ruthless, blood lusting, space pirate of the Metroid Series, this guy right here, RIDLEY!! Everybody and their mom want Ridley to be a playable Smash Bros. But the issue is he’s too big! But, here’s the thing Ridley doesn’t play by the rules.

If Ridley were added to Smash Bros.’s roster he would need some resizing. On the Ridley issue Masahiro Sakurai stated “I definitely know that Ridley’s a much-anticipated name for fans, but if we made Ridley as a fighter, it wouldn’t be Ridley any longer, It’d have to be shrunk down, or its wings reduced in size, or be unable to fly around freely. Providing accurate portrayals of characters is something I want to pay ample attention to. If I don’t stick to that thought, then we’d have to lower the quality or break the balance of the game. Something that goes way off spec could break the entire game.”

So how I read the issue is either make Ridley around the same size as Bowser and lose a lot of his identity. Or find a middle ground between Bowser’s size and his Pyrosphere incarnation then be met with an uproar from the community complaining that Ridley is OP, losing balance in the game.

No one is at fault, but in my opinion the Super Smash Bros. series has now become too competitive. These balancing patches we have gotten since release have catered more to the competitive side of the Smash Bros. community. What happened to just playing for fun? That’s why I play. Sure I like to win, but I don’t need to all the time. If I lose I still have enjoyed the match and am ready to get into the next one. I won’t blame my loss on tiers. It doesn’t matter to me that fighters such as Diddy, Greninja, or Sheik seem to have an advantage, or that Sonic is too fast (which is just keeping true to his character).

This is why I think Ridley is really being held back. It’s not just a matter of him being larger than Bowser or Ganondorf. I think Sakurai believes adding him would end up being a lose, lose situation. 

But I don’t care if making him large and true to his character makes him the most OP character in the game, HE’S RIDLEY! He doesn’t play by the rules, I just want him in. I will still go up against him as Olimar and have fun doing it. Maybe if it’s a real issue ban him from online use against strangers. #Ridley4Smash

Also there is a pretty cool Ridley mod for Project M I came across, that I feel really makes Ridley work in Smash Bros. as a fighter. Some may complain again about it being OP, but agian that’s just Ridley being true to his character. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcamzupKKWw 

#6. Young Link [Masked] (The Legend of Zelda)

Young Link was a Melee fighter, but was met with the cruel fate of being cut and replaced in Brawl by Toon Link.

But with Majora’s Mask 3D and Hyrule Warriors reviving him. I want Young Link to make a comeback, New and Improved of course! It would be amazing if Young Link returned to Smash with an arsenal of his Masks from Majora’s Mask. With his three main transformations between Deku, Goron, and Zora Link and a Fierce Deity transformation as his Final Smash, Young Link would be an interesting fighter. #YoungLink4Smash

#5. Krystal (Star Fox)

Krystal! This vixen packs a punch. With a new Star Fox game on the horizon for later this year adding Krystal as a fighter in Smash Bros. would make perfect sense, and would be great promotion. She also has the potential to be the first Star Fox fighter in Smash Bros. to have a moveset not based off of Fox’s. Not only could Krystal utilize both guns and her spear in her moveset, she is also telepathic which adds even more possibilities and an interesting twist for a Starfox fighter. #Krystal4Smash

#4. Dixie Kong (Donkey Kong)

Dixie Kong the bright eyed young heroine of the Donkey Series. Donkey Kong needs more representation in a Smash Bros. in my opinion and Dixie would be the perfect candidate. She may move around the stages the same as Diddy but, utilizing her ponytail as the base for her attacks, like in DK games, will give her a unique and interesting fighting style in Smash Bros. #Dixie4Smash

#3. Ganondorf [Revamped] (The Legend of Zelda)

Ganondorf, the bearer of the Triforce of Power, the most profound villain in the Legend of Zelda series, and one of the most iconic villains of Nintendo. Facing him in battle strikes fear in your heart, and brings upon a certain uneasiness… Not in Smash Bros. though. The bearer of the Triforce of Power deserves more than just being a Captain Falcon semi-clone. It’s time Ganondorf gets a revamp, with a proper moveset based off his Legend of Zelda incarnations, and not Captain Falcon. Maybe take a few ideas from Hyrule Warriors 👀 lol. Pls give him Swords and Dead Man’s Volley Sakurai ;) #RevampedGanondorf4Smash

We also made a Ganondorf moveset some time ago. I’ll reblog it. But you can take a look here too: http://supersmashbroscentral.tumblr.com/post/95961146111/m-i-a-melee-veterans-ganondorf

#2. Princess Daisy (Super Mario)

Daisy the sporty, tomboy, Princess of Sarasaland would be absolutely perfect for Smash Bros. We were actually surprised that she didn’t make it into the original roster for 3DS and Wii U, since she has been requested as a fighter ever since Melee when Peach had an alternate color swap based off her. But now with the Fighter Ballot, Daisy has a second chance! Daisy has almost limitless possibilities with her moveset. Being the spinoff queen Daisy can draw a moveset from Mario Sports games, Mario Party, or even Mario Kart. How awesome :D And I just can’t wait to hear that taunt “Hi, I’m Daisy!” :) #Daisy4Smash

#1. Banjo & Kazooie (Banjo Kazooie)

(Render Artwork Source: Artsy Omni)

Banjo & Kazooie the witty and comedic bear and bird duo! They are N64 Gold and have held a special place in many Nintendo fans hearts. It was once considered impossible, but now that Microsoft is open to seeing Banjo & Kazooie in Smash Bros. we say go for it. Honestly with how popular and nostalgic Banjo & Kazooie are I think Nintendo may actually be willing to add them. So let’s cross our fingers :D!!

Also did you know Banjo and Kazooie were among the characters who were considered for fighters during the development of the original Super Smash Bros. N64! Hopefully this boosts their chances even higher ;) #Banjo&Kazooie4Smash

-Honorable Mention-

#0. Ice Climbers (Ice Climber)

Please bring Ice Climbers back  Sakurai :’) lol. It was a sad day when it was confirmed that the rumors were true, the Ice Climbers had been cut due to technical difficulties with the 3DS. The Ice Climbers have become iconic characters due to their early inclusion in the Smash Bros. Series in Melee and have earned their place as a special piece of Smash Bros. History. I know Sakurai would like to keep the rosters the same between the 3DS and Wii U Versions, but I would suggest as a remedy to this is on the 3DS Version add Ice Climber as a single fighter, and let players switch between costumes of Popo and Nana like the male and female Wii Fit Trainer and Robins. Then for the Wii U bring back the original Duo of Popo and Nana fighting hand and hand together!! ;) 

So these are our Top 10! If you would like to vote for any of them on the Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot go here: https://cp.nintendo.co.jp/us/

So what do you think about my Top 10? And what are your Top 10? Comment, reblog or message. Please share your thoughts, I’m very interested. : ) Let me know! What do you think?
