+6 Mario universe (Mario, Wario, DK, Yoshi) reps is way too many
+2 Zelda is unlikely
+2 Metroid isn't happening
+2 Star Fox is unlikely as well
+7 3rd Party is also kind of a lot, cut maybe half of them
In spite of this, the character choices themselves are solid - the issue is mainly the size.
A lot of these characters are just wishful thinking like Ashley, Krystal and Magnus who I know for sure are NOT gonna get in.
I also couldn't add Springman, Decidueye, Rex, and Corrin because the software I used to make this is outdated and didn't have those character's portraits available. If they were I would've for sure added them.

Seeing Sora would be awesome. It's actually Disney that owns the rights to him, no?
throw my hat in
Lol where’s Sans?
Where can you do this roster thing?
I don't see this many newcomers coming. I would say we'll get 5-6 MAX.
Just add sans to that empty bottom left area and it will be symmetric and complete
I wasn't actually considering Paper Mario and now I kinda want him
I can't see anything because Ridley is SO HUGE in this comic.
I love the idea that kirby is the most jaded of all the people in smash and is furious whenever they let someone new in. "Oh so angel boy has a dark reflection? Great."
He's just too big to fit through the door.
I always picture Kirby as me - "what is your B move and can it make me top tier?"
I remember this comic from back in the day. Crazy how time flies.
Kirby = Me.
I really want to see Ridley now...
"Blastoise over Charizard."
Oh god this can't actually be serious.
Edit: Oh, it's just trolling. Nvm.
That has to be the ugliest roster, I love it.
I don't get it
Super Smash Brothers is a beloved fighting videogame. Over the years, selling millions of copies each, there have been four iterations of this timeless experience. However, similarly to the consequences of technological development in our society, many, including myself, believe that this beautiful entertainment series has reached the point of saturation concerning their all-star roster of characters. This figure captures my proposal for the streamlining of the available fighters, so that the next venture into the Super Smash Brothers Universe will reach competitiveness levels comparative to, dare I say, Super Smash Brothers Melee. Thank you, and God Bless America.
Rosa and peach? Good enough, ship it nintendo

Can't wait to play fire emblem
That is the most accurate free space I have ever seen.
This is really well done, I like the achievement-like names.
...but how dare you play my golden sun heart like this... even though deep within my heart I know it won't happen anymore...
Nice board. Nice use of the Konami Code. I am going to guess that upper left to bottom right will result in one of the early bingos.
I like the idea of tradeable collectibles. With that getting multiple of the same trophy won't be as irritating.
Why you gotta do Isaac like that? ;_;
looks at bingo card
yeah, yeah seems accurate...
sees isaac space
That Isaac space... first of all how DERE you.
Some of the negatives ones hurt so much because they're probably true.
Melee has a rhythm based character, too bad they were absent from Sm4sh.
Love the board, what software did you use to make this?
I would be sad in twilight princess Link is removed. I would so much prefer BotW Link be a tertiary Link.
I hope the Konami one happens. Specifically for Snake..
Typo in top middle block.
I feel like the most reasonable path to bingo is probably the IC's to Co-op Adventure mode.
Adding on to your Link prediction, the regular, non-toon Link will recieve the glider as a recovery move. This is consistent woth the fact that he's wearing his BotW costume in the trailer. Toon Link will keep the spin.
Really well done, very entertaining names, and easily the best bingo card in terms of effort and quality so far!
Thank you for putting in a Rhythm Heaven character! Bit disappointed that the character isn't Karate Joe rather than the Chorus Kids, and there's a lack of a new Kirby character, but other than that I think this is one of the most solid lists I have seen so far.
This one has more effort put into it than any of the others, well deserved upvote
Might as well throw in Smash battle Royale
I like the witty titles, especially Your Grass is Ass. 😂
Nice card, while our tastes in characters differ, your titles and the pictures chosen make this bingo fun to read.
Ticking the mii one.
mii is love mii is life
4th column is where im placing my bets.
Who’s the character in the middle of the Konami square?
The new Marioverse character better be WALUIGI 😤
I wonder if FLUDD will somehow be replaced by Cappy...
Second Row Vertically is most likely.
Inspired by /u/Neon_Citizen_Teal, I made a Bingo card that features descriptions rather than characters picks, too. Some positive, some negative, some things about stages and a few others. Thoughts?
I want Reggie in new smash
Seven thumbs down.
I love that Inkling girl is still in shock. The smash emblem still burns in her eyes, she will not recover for quite some time.
Desmond better be a fighter.
Is that Etika in the hype train?!? Hahaha! That's great!
Poor Inkling girl. Someone give her a hug because she just seriously can't right now.
Professor Layton not in photo
Who's the bald guy behind the Ice Climbers?
Where's Alfonzo and why didn't you leave the conducting to him?
Yass, it's Big Boss!
I love how the Ice Climbers aren't tall enough to really be poking out.
J O Y C O N M E N
Can’t have a Smash Bros Hype anything without Etika screaming his head off and giving headphones users migraines.
Well done. 👍
hmmm... why always Decidueye and not Inceneroar?
Needs more Ridley and Goku

Why is everyone pushing for that pokemon when there are so many to choose from? Is there something special about that particular one?
no minecraft steve. without him’s relaxalax’s prophecy will never be filled. what have you done
Snake is so hidden, took me a while to see him
Who's that to the left of crash?
Can we all agree that Smash for Switch's reveal was WAAAY more hype-inducing than Smash 4's reveal?
No shovel knight 2/10
Will this be coming to the Wii U as well?
The final frame from the short I made last week. Figured I'd post it in 4K in case anyone wanted to use it as a wallpaper!
Realized its a little hard to read the small text, so heres a better image
crazy to think three of probably the top five just quit, or can't be bothered to compete regularly these days (fuzz, Jolteon, VA)
Hyped to see a doc at #4
Dude, I love this graphic. I usually never pay attention to any of the PRs that get posted on here and sometimes get annoyed by some of them, but this one caught my eye and I really enjoyed reading around the board.
Great job on this.
I'd be on here
if i lived in london and went to anything xd
It's neat how the UK plays the version of melee without puff and shiek
Wasnt there a captain falcon named setchi who attended genesis that was from the UK?
Weird, not a single puff in top 25?
Chance spot on board should say RNG...missed opportunity
For real though this is hella cool
Oof getting a remaster of the Castlevania series along with smash would be lit
Just in case, I just want to make it clear this isn't a completely from scratch drawing. I took a pic of the NES box art and a screenshot of the Smash switch announcement and photoshopped them together with a few tweaks. I was so lazy with my search I ended up using a 350x479 pic of the box art haha
This is what I was saying all along. Finally, someone that shares my opinion!
It'd be amazing, but with the current state of Konami it seems really unlikely.
I want Simon Belmont so badly yo!I even crafted a move set for him in my spare time since the Smash Switch trailer dropped
I so hope they put a Castlevania character in. They probably won't because Konami is a piece of crap nowadays, but it would be so cool.
While I like Snake, Bomberman or Simon Belmont seems more deserving for Smash as a Konami rep. Now the question remains, will the announcer say "Simon" or "Simon Belmont"?
Disclaimer: [this doesn’t have every single thing it could have on there, like grabs and throw and pummel. This list covers the main aspects of his move set]
Simon Belmont Moveset
(Tipper Mechanic in place)
Jab- 3 quick lashes with his whip
Side tilt- cracks whip in a straight line (can be done in 6 directions)
Up tilt- lassos whip above head in a circle
Down tilt- sweeps whip at feet (tripping properties)
Side smash- a strong solid crack of the whip forward
Up smash- two hard cracks of the whip above the head
Down smash- cracks whip while kneeling going in front of him then behind him
Side B- throw cross boomerang and it comes back (can be thrown in 6 directions)
Up B- seraph shoulders (shoulder guards turn into angelic wings which grant momentary flight, when finished Simon will not go into free fall)
Down B- can produce a vial of holy water which can be thrown at will. Does damage on contact and will do damage over time for a brief amount of time. If the vile misses and lands on stage, then it will leave a puddle which will (either cause damage over time for a brief amount of time OR cause tripping) there can only be two puddles present on the field at any time, and while two puddles are present Simon cannot produce another vile.
Forward Air a quick lash of his whip forward in the air
Back Air- throws axe behind at an arc
Up air- quickly sweeps his his whip above his head while airborne
Down air- produces large oak stake and throws it straight down
Grab- whips forward and pulls opponent in (can also be used to tether recover to stage)
Dash attack- runs forward and cracks whip forward with a small slide
Snake, Simon and Bomberman - 3 characters I really want that are owned by Konami. Hoping we get at least 1 of them still.
Is that Simon or Richter
BLOODY TEARS METAL REMIX BLASTING IN THE BACKGROUND
Didn’t know waluigi had a whip
He deserves it. Been asking for him since Sonic was revealed.
My asked characters were:
A final fantasy character (black mage or fighter preferably)
Scorpion or Sub Zero
A bunch of them got accepted (didn't expect cloud, but no complaints). Belmont is the one I'm waiting on.
mistakes the smash ball to be a FNAF character
scrolls down to see Simon
JUST KIDDING PLEASE LIVE MY CHILD
If this happened I would literally never complain about whatever characters are and aren't put in Smash again.
Simon Belmont should be in this game. FOR SURE!
Has it been confirmed that this is more then Sm4sh Deluxe or what ever a rerelease would be called?
I've love some Castlevania representation if only for the music. Having Simon Belmont himself would be a great bonus.
Castlevania was a stable of the NES and SNES. How has Simon not made it into a Smash game yet?
I didn't even know I wanted Simon Belmont in Smash until now
Ayyyy it’s uhhhhhh...Castlevania guy!
I’ll be hoping for Soma (from the Castlevania games I’ve actually played, Aria and Dawn), but Simon would be cool too.
I want monkey watch for smash
I've always wanted Indiana Jones in Smash as well
We'll probably get Snake before Belmont. But it'd be nice to have them both.
I'd main Simon in a heartbeat.
My gawd I never even thought of that! I’m not sure why either he’s been in front of my face the entire time!
Prince of persia?
Id rather have boss baby tbh
Also the franchise I was hoping to see most in the last game, but Konami's run by vampires now, so we won't ever get a Castlevania rep or another game in the series ever again.
I don't think will return
I can’t believe made it in over ! I mean, isn’t even in the Meta! Come on Nintendo!
I think [Ridley] should be in Smash 5, since [Ridley] is an important recurring character in [Metroid]. It only makes sense.
I can only see one reason why anyone from Smash 4's roster wouldn't return. It's a third party going insane enough to pass up the huge publicity of having a character in Smash Bros and a deal falling through. Konami is a shithole, if you are not aware. Luckily,
SEGA (Sonic Mania/Forces, Valkyria Chronicles 4, Bayonetta 3),
Squenix (Octopath Traveler),
Capcom (lol rereleases of SF but no Monster Hunter),
and Bamco (everything, plus Smash 4)
are all totally on board with Nintendo and especially the Switch. Cutting their characters from Smash won't happen in a million years.
Then people bring up the clones. LUCINAS GONE. LUCAS IRRELEVANT. DR MARIO A SKIN. A few things about that.
However much this game ends up being new in characters, modes, gameplay, ect., it's still going to start from a ctrl + v of Smash 4, just as Brawl was of Melee, just as 4 was of Brawl. Even more so in the age of DLC and online updates, Smash is a snowball rolling down a hill. It's only going to increase. There's absolutely no technical reason the entire Smash 4 cast wouldn't return.
That means Sakurai would have to willingly decide to remove a veteran. This could be argued with not wanting to deal with customization of the Miis, or say if Nintendo makes a decision that they don't want to be associated with the brand of Miis any longer. It's a possibility. But the second most popular Fire Emblem character and face of the franchise? Characters who have had their own games and are part of Nintendo history that require no work at all to include? Why throw those away?
I expect a decloned Pittoo and everyone returning.
To be fair, it's not that unlikely that everyone from Sm4sh will return. From Melee to Brawl, only Roy, Young Link, Pichu, Dr. Mario, and Mewtwo were removed. Four of those were clones, so no huge loss. I'm not sure about Mewtwo, though. Maybe it's cause Lucario was added.
From Brawl to Sm4sh, Ice Climbers, Snake, Wolf, and Pokemon Trainer were removed. Ice Climbers were due to technical limitations, Snake was 3rd party, Wolf was a semi-clone character, and Pokemon Trainer was turned into just Charizard.
So, every character removed so far, besides Mewtwo, had a valid reason to be removed. Hopefully that trend stays...
I for one will not be purchasing sma5h unless Hideo Kojima is a player character
Oh god this is me. Half my post history is defending characters people say will be cut because I will be so sad if anyone actually is.
I dont think pikachu will be returning tho. its been around 6 months since a pokemon game was released, and the last time i saw pokemon merch in the wild was about an hour ago. I just dont think that the king of pokemon has marketing value anymore, despite being on my bedsheets. I think Nintendo just doesnt care about pokemon anymore
But come on guys seriously they is no way jimmy neutron won't be in this game
Don't have to ever worry about king dedede leaving
I don't care if some return or not. At this point I want to know if any dlc packs from the Wii u version will just be carried over and offered free of charge in the game.
But I do think this will return
So... we going for Ridley again?
And then there's "add shrek xddddddddd"
Needs more gold
I for one am afraid of mentioning Wonder Red in this subreddit.
Next game:We have removed the handicap option pray that we don't alter it further
I know that some are going to complain that will almost certainly not be tourney-legal (maybe counter-pick if the is easily avoidable), but goddamn it looks fun. I'm glad to finally see another stage from .
The more details you find the more hilarious this image becomes
Gonna steal this for when Smash 6 comes out
So far, the only characters we know to be returning are Mario, and Link; along with with Bowser, DK, Samus, and Pikachu (by virtue of being the only shilloettes that can be mostly made out). Every other Smash character's status is unknown, and could be cut, or returning.
Except for Snake. Until Konami pulls their head out of their ass, Snake isn't likely to come back
I don't think Mario will return.
Plot twist: Mario isn't in the game
The only character I care about returning is Mr Game & Watch.
I fear they may take away Ike from me :(
I mean to be honest, I feel like the original 12 will be safe but anyone past that is up in the air
No, but seriously, bring back Ice Climbers.
I am not getting my hopes up, but I think could really have a shot at joining the smash roster.
Waluigi's foreskin and pregnant luigi will be in it. Fight me.
Pretty sure they're kicking Mario out. Not a viable character
Well it is kinda bbvious that Mario won't be returning so...
I hope Robin stays.
it was always the fucking mewtwo flairs
the last panel should be "fans complain anyway"
Yeah I can’t help but feel like this is about a FE character
EVERYONE KNOWS DRAGON BALL IS A FUCKING PINNACLE POINT IN THE META AT THIS POINT IN THE SERIES. EVEN CUCNING SAKURAI KNOWS THIS.
Who ever thinks otherwise is mentally handicapped
The Kerby will return....
Dunnkeeeyyy yah know he has the die move. He's a must for smash can't buy if he's not in game.Nintendo ,do it .
Yeah this game will be so much better now that they are cutting fox.
This makes sense.
I wonder how they got so many downvotes/upvotes.
The time between announcement and release of a Smash Bros game is the only time this subreddit is useful to me, because the rest of the time it's just boring shit and drama about competitive smashers and the metagame.
There will only be one character which is the virtual boy.
And still no Daisy
I hope makes it in! has been in EVERY game, I think it's time we give a chance! Come on !
I see some people just aren't ready for Jimmy Neutron
I'm so excited that [Chibi Robo] has a shot in this game!
All I want to know is if my main Duck Hunt Dog is returning
I’m going to be so sad if there are roster cuts.
Im' happy with Mewtwo and Corrin returning, i only need that...
I read this in Schmidt's voice from New Girl. It has some sass to it.
The new game is obviously just a Project M port to the Switch, except every character has wonky skins and textures from BrawlVault and/or is clones of other characters Cloud = Ike, Sephiroth = Marth, Chain Chomp = Pac Man.
Falcon's moveset is now just variations of speed, direction, and power of Falcon Punch.
Please for the love of god add Fiora from Xenonlade Chronicles. Amazing game, deserves more rep, and Fiora is perfect
The only people we need to cut are Corrin, most of the pookeymanns, and all the clones.
It's not that I don't think will return, it's that I don't want to return.
More than five characters on the roster currently fill that spot, so use your imagination.
Lookin at you, Bayo, Shulk, and Fire Emblem Character mains.
Remember the human, guys. The moderators have enough on their plate as-is. Nothing is confirmed, nothing is 100%. Literally everything on 5mash is speculation right now. Especially that thing that RandomGuyWhoseOpinionDiffersFromYours is saying - that's definitely speculation.
THE LOGO IS THE FUCKING BIRD
holy SHIT it fits on the window.
This actually blew my mind. No joke.
This is why people deserve a voice
I wouldn't even be mad.
I'd better be in this game or I'll be fucking pissed
Sakurai says otherwise: http://sourcegaming.info/2015/03/30/smash-reader-response-page-9-meaning-behind-smash-logo-lip-ice-climbers-and-balloon-fight/ (search for "logo")
Inkling Amiibo were added in the Sm4sh amiibo collection on a sunny day
lmao good shit
The power of Photoshop
imagine Dark Souls stuff in Smash Bros. Patches as a assist trophy character and Siegward as a playable fighter, my life would be complete
Not sure if I'm gonna get Dark Souls remastered on the Switch but I'm definitely getting the solaire amiibo [T]/
Ok, I know you were memeing and all but still....I can't believe I never put together that I was looking at the window from the first game.
The power of the sun!
fucking solaire confirmedEZ Clap
I had this idea an hour after you did... I MISSED A 1K UPVOTE OPPORTUNITY
The Golden Sun shines upon us!
new smash logo looks like a burning sun......
Shadowed figures surrounded by burning embers......
Dark souls remastered for switch is coming...
Goal is to "link the fires" in dark souls...
Solaire(name sounds like sun) amiibo announced......
My body is ready for Solaire in Smash
Solaire joins for some Jolly cooperation
I wonder if that's where the logo comes from?
The original game is implied to be a kid playing with his Nintendo toys, so what if the logo comes from him looking out the window and seeing the sun broken up by his window?
I mean since Solaire is getting an amiibo...maybe. Only maybe. But it'd be cool to see.Also the window thing blew my mind for a second there.
Since Dank Souls is coming to Switch, I guess it's possible for Solaire? I think I could get mildly apathetic towards this game instead of my current feelings of "somewhat bitter".
