  2. That’s it


Just the Dream Daddies please

  1. Mona from Shovel Knight (Final Smash: Spin Ye Bottle)

  2. Red from Transistor (Final Smash: Turn(); )

  3. Disco Lizard from Rain World (Final Smash: Hibernate)

  4. Trusty Patches from Dark Souls (Final Smash: helpfully points out some treasure just below the edge of the stage)

Yoku from Yoku’s Island Express
The Ship from Geometry Wars
Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn
Faith from Mirror’s Edge
Edward Kenway from AC IV: Black Flag
Pilot/Titan from Titanfall
Alette from The Banner Saga

  1. A regular-ass Palico from Monster Hunter.

  2. Klonoa (or anyone from Klonoa really)

  3. Jack Frost from SMT series

  4. Jibanyan from Yokai Watch

  5. Freya from Valkyrie Profile

  6. Acguy from gundam

I like these sort of threads since I don’t think I’d get the chance to share my list anywhere else.


This is a pull I could actually see happening. Yokai Watch was so huge on the 3DS I could see Nintendo wanting the mascot character in Smash.

Anyways heres a few I can think of:

Sailor Moon, but you play as Usagi and theres a Zelda>Sheik style down-B to switch to Sailor Moon. Luna’s there too. Whole crew comes out in the Final Smash.

Solaire from Dark Souls

Mina Han from Battle Chef Brigade final smash she turns you into some dang gems and cooks you.

Goten and Trunks as a dual character and the final smash is Gotenks.

The car from Daytona.

Char Aznable and his custom Zaku II

A Hunter from Monster Hunter.

And my deepest cut that might not actually be a deep cut: Kaho from Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight.

  1. Hornet, from Hollow Knight. Because she fights with a sewing needle, which is so Smash it hurts.
  2. Mimic from Prey 2017, because it amuses me
  3. Rukey Greentail from Pyre (And damn, it was rough choosing only one)
  4. Yoku, from Yoku’s Island Express, because a character who is literally a pinball is the perfect smash contestant.
  5. The Mouse Chef from Overcooked 2, because there isn’t enough cooking in Smash.
  6. The Excalibur Frame, from Warframe, mostly because I’ve been playing too much Warframe.
  7. Troubled Young Lady from They Bleed Pixels, because claw hands.
  8. A Magika Wizard, whose friendly fire is always on


2B (Nier)
Selvaria Bles (Valkyria Chronicles)
Pyra/Mythra (Xenoblade 2)
Kiryu (Yakuza)
Sol Badguy (Guilty Gear)
Frog (Chrono Trigger)
Somebody from Granblue Fantasy (Djeeta?)
Somebody from Fate (probably unavoidably Saber)


I don’t play Smash but can’t pass up an opportunity to impose my gaming childhood on others :wink:.

  1. Billy Blaze (Commander Keen)
  2. Alex the Kidd (Miracle world)
  3. Footbag guy (California Games)
  4. Paperboy (Paperboy)
  5. Green dwarf (Golden Axe)
  6. Ferrari (Outrun)
  7. Paddle (Arkanoid)
  8. Rockford (Boulder Dash)

  • Ace Attorney, because if he can be in MvC he can be in Smash.
  • Balthier from Final Fantasy 12, because every game needs a leading man. Or maybe Fran, because… ahem, anyway.
  • Steiner from FF9 because it would be fun to see him clank around the battlefield.
  • Amaterasu, from Okami, because imagine the cherry blossoms, and you can always use more goddesses.
  • Manny Calavera, from Grim Fandango, because he always looks cool and you would get Glottis coming in on a big ass hot rod during his super.
  • Lammy, from Um Jammer Lammy, because she can ROCK OUT!
  • Basically anyone from Nuclear Throne, I don’t care, because they would all fit in.
  • Otacon! I don’t know what he would do but I want him in it.


A stack of three Links (four is too many)
The Sega Swirl
The Lusty Argonian Maid
Umihara Kawase
Barry B Benson
Jill of the Jungle

  1. Solaire (dark souls)
  2. 2b (nier)
  3. 9s (nier)
  4. Izuku Midoria (my hero academia)
  5. Mio Naganohara (nichijou)
  6. Anti Mage (defense of the ancients)
  7. Slime (dragon quest)
  8. Horror, crystal, or rebel (nuclear throne)

  • Ditto, can transform into other fighters for 30 seconds

  • Excalibur from Warframe

  • The Assassin Chosen from XCOM 2

  • RX-78-2 Mobile Suit

  • Classic Sonic + Classic Tails as an Ice Climbers style duo

  • Axel Stone from Streets of Rage

  • The Scout from TF2

  • Garrus from Mass Effect

  1. Prince of All Cosmos - Katamari (reason: he’s my son)
  2. Jodariel - Pyre (reason: big lady)
  3. Amaterasu - Okami (reason: origin of all that is good and mother to us all)
  4. Majima - Yakuza (reason: hotter than Kiryu)
  5. Sora- Kingdom Hearts (reason: well they’re not gonna put in another FF character)
  6. Solaire - Dark Souls (reason: praise the sun taunt funny)
  7. Shovel Knight - Shovel Knight (reason: shovel knight)
  8. Sans Undertale - Undertale (reason: oh c’mon you know why)

  1. Squall from FF8. You have to time pressing shield to fire the gunblade when a sword-based smash attack connects to do more damage.
  2. Mallow from Super Mario RPG. Like Ness basically but you can spawn a cloud that restores your HP when you stand under it.
  3. Shovel Knight. Because he’s already got a smash moveset and works aesthetically.
  4. Kazuya Mishima from Tekken. Transforms into devil form after reacjing a damage threshold.
  5. Black Mage from Final Fantasy. All standard attacks can launch but do hardly any damage. Specials are Firaga, Blizzaga, Thundaga and Demi.
    6/7. Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan. Having these guys would be the ultimate flex on all other fighting games that have ripoffs of these guys by having the real deal.
  6. Banjo-Kazooie. Whatever, I’m basic.
