Since I'm new here and I'm too lazy too read everything back, I'm just gonna ask you guys:
What are your predictions for the new SSB4 characters? Which characters would you really want to join? And which characters do you think/hope will return from previous SSB games?
I did an analysis of Fire Emblem Characters that could be playable in Smash 4:
1. Robin (Avatar)
I am sure Ike will return, and I think Roy will not be returning.
Here is my super list of likely/semi-likely characters I want to see in Smash
Spoiler Alert!1. Tiki (Fire Emblem)
Because a want a Manakete for Super Smash Bros.
2. Little Mac (PunchOut!!)
His appearance in Smash is long overdue. [This list needs to be updated now that Little Mac is in Smash]
3. Solid Snake (Metal Gear Solid)
I want to see him back.
4. Shulk (Xenoblade)
The Monado would be awesome to use in Smash.
5. Ridley (Metroid)
The series needs a villain and another character.
6. Palutena (Kid Icarus)
The series needs more characters. Plus the rumor is fueling everyones hype for this character.
7. Masked Link (Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask)
Majora's Mask has been getting some attention recently (Mask in ALBW, Skull Kid Assist Trophy, ect.) and I would love to see Deku Link, Zora Link, and Goron Link as playable characters. Also the Final Smash would have to be Fierce Deity Link.
8. Avatar/My Unit/Robin (Fire Emblem: Awakening)
Like the Pokémon Trainer represents the trainers of Pokémon, Avatar represents the strategists of Fire Emblem. Plus the ability to use a Tome and a Sword would make for an interesting moveset. Also, maybe they will make Avatar both a male model and a female model like they did with the WiiFit Trainer.
9. Professor Layton
Because, why not.
10. Toon Zelda with either Tetra or Phantom Zelda (Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker or Spirit Tracks)
Tetra would be awesome but I would actually prefer Phantom Zelda, even though Spirit Tracks was not the most popular game. Toon Shiek is also an option but I would rather see a transformation that is unique to (and actually exists in) the Toon Zelda games.
11. Pichu Bros.
Going off the Pra Mai but instead with Pichu.
To have a game with so many company faces like Mario, Sonic, and Mega Man, having Pac-Man in that group would be the coolest thing ever. Odds are up because Namco is helping develop Smash 4.
13.Any Belmont (Castlevania)
Any Belmont would do but if Snake doesn't make it into Smash 4, Konami could throw this series into Smash.
14. Something Dragon Quest/Warrior
This series need more Western recognition. Plus that might motivate Nintendo or Square Enix whoever is in charge of translations, to move the DQX westward boosting the sales of Wii U.
And here is a new list of characters I want but will probably never happen
1. Hat Kid (A Hat in Time)
3. Altair or Ezio (Assassin's Creed)
4. Minecraft Steve
5. The Soldier (TF2)
It would be cool if they got into Smash but I am not super fanboy adamant about them.
I also made a bunch of movesets for a lot of my wish list:
And my Little Mac Moveset was surprisingly accurate.
Me and MR have had arguments about the Zelda characters and the Fire Emblem characters, we don't really agree at all. Like, I think Masked Link has no chance, and while I think Toon Zelda is possible I think Ghirahim is a lot more likely. I also think Tingle is about as likely as Toon Zelda. The only Fire Emblem characters I see as likely are Chrom, Lucina, and the Avatar.
I don't think Walhart or Lyn are likely either, I mean Lyn is notable and all she's just so overshadowed by the most prominent Awakening characters. Unless you don't either and I'm misunderstanding you.
A top six list is kinda unnecessary because for bottom ones to get in they have to beat the top 3
Robin and Tiki bring something fresh to Smash while the Chrom and Lucina not so much. That's why I have them so high
Actually when I think about it, there is another reason why Robin will be the character they choose.
Huge Awakening Spoiler
Spoiler Alert!Robin is also the villain. The much needed spot of Fire Emblem villain can be his/hers
Here's what I think will be the Fire Emblem roster
Marth, Ike, Robin
