What are you guys on now?
I think you left out Charlie, Alph, and Brittany from Pikmin 3 in your pole.
I would like to see Ridley but him being a boss in Brawl kinda shot down his chances. However I know a lot of people were disappointed that Ridley did not make it in as a character.
As for the size problem:
Ridley in Melee intro scene
As for Star Fox: I am content with the current series representatives. I don't think they need anyone else.
Krystal has my vote. I'll just leave this here. My reasoning for predicting Krystal:
I've always considered Krystal a legitimate choice. She's not K Rool, but she is Popular, she could be a last minute clone, or completely unique, and she's both prominent and important enough. Plus Sakurai does like the series, and although I'm grasping at straws right meow, we did get THIS in Brawl:
Peppy: That gives me itching for some action. I want in!
Slippy: No way! Old-timers like you ride the bench. This fight's mine!
Krystal: What are you two thinking? I'm the only one who can come through in a fight like this!!
SO, at the very least, we know Sakurai sees her fighting prowess. Combine all of this together, and we have a legitimate contender. It's really just a matter of IF she'll be chosen this time.A member of the Star Fox team welcomed in Star Fox Adventures after the team met her on planet Sauria when responding to a distress signal. Krystal is capable of telepathy and is a valuable member in combat. After becoming romantically involved with Fox, their relationship gets very rocky in Star Fox Command.
As for Ridley, I'm going to just go with him being included. Despite Sakurai laughing at the idea of him being playable a few years back.
If anyone is interested, I can post my new poll results?

I would like to see the results too.
I believe Sakurai adds character depending on series popularity.
Pokémon being the most popular of Nintendo's series got the most characters.
Mario being next and Legend of Zelda as third most popular.
Star Fox is not THAT popular and still with not a whole lot of "new" games and not that many characters, I don't think Star Fox will be getting another one.
Metroid on the other hand, has the popularity for at least one more character but the problem is that Metroid lacks reasonable characters to put in. Ridley is Samus' a main rival but he is impractical to become a playable character in Smash, however I think it can be done.

Really, all Sakurai is looking for when adding characters is:
Popularity, Prominence/Importance, and "fighting ability"
I can site his rules if you would like? (Yes, he's stated what he looks for in when adding characters before)
