How do you top the Smash 4 reveals?

What characters are there left to announce that could get everyone on board, even normals?
>>
>>423901565
Goku is by far the biggest shake up they could announce
>>
>>423901565
At this point I'm somewhat expecting no more reveals but instead have newcomers come out of nowhere in a story mode.

>>423901691

They can't really. Cloud, Ryu, Megaman and Pacman really put the bar too high.

I guess omething really out of the left field like Master Chief would probably cause a big reaction.

Personally, I'm hoping for Phoenix Wright, Layton, Crash, Banjo, Rayman, Viewtiful Joe or Simon Belmont as potential 3rd party reps.

Literally only 4 of them were actually hype before the DLC (Mega Man, PACMAN, Little Mac and Duck Hunt), and they've already matched it by half with Inkling and Ridley, on top of bringing back Snake, Pokemon Trainer, using the better versions of Zelda and Ganondorf, etc.
>>
>>423901565
I genuinely believe the only character that mostly EVERYONE within the community could get behind would be Geno. He's been highly requested since Brawl, and it's kind of hard to not like him? I never see people hating on Geno. Again, that's subjective but this is all just my onion.

Banjo is basically the last big reveal they can make.

But, leave it up to Sakurai to somehow blow us all the fuck away somehow.

Banjo's a nostalgiafag pick who missed his chance back in Melee. His reveal in Smash would get a few people excited, but it would pave the way for a Banjo reboot that would actually get people excited.
Simon Belmont is a more plausible and exciting nostalgiafag pick, but nobody's really excited for new Castlevania.
Master Chief hasn't been considered iconic since Reach and nobody really feels nostalgia for him.
Doomguy can't get in without bringing at least his shotgun with him and that's not happening in the base game. Would be extremely hype if handled well.
Shovel Knight's brand has been tarnished by showing up in every indie game crossover. He's a shoe-in for Ouya Rumble. Shantae is Shovel Knight for hipsters and waifufags.
Sans Undertale and Steven Minecraft would be exciting for a large audience (though Minecraft is declining outside of the dedicated legolords), but nobody here wants them.
Sora would be exciting, but Sora without Donald and Goofy wouldn't fit with Kingdom Hearts theme of togetherness, and bringing Donald and Goofy brings us to Goku.
Goku would unironically be the most exciting and only autists don't want him because "muh rules", bringing up Shrek like Anti-Bandana Deefags bring up Fedora Goomba.

Ice-T, Abraham Lincoln, and Elijah Wood were some rather strange choices for the Mii showcase. Why not just use Reggie, Sakurai and Iwata?

For the "what the fuck" factor. I remember flipping the fuck out when the trailer started and it said "Ice-T Pours It On!".

I really would have preferred if the mii was just one prebuilt character called "Miiyamoto" with a set moveset though. Oh well.

That would be the best option since it would circumvent the problem which Goku they'd take.

When it comes to third parties:
Zero, Leon, Ammy/Chibi, Richter/Alucard/Soma, Banjo [Never Ever], Travis, Neku, Cecil/Bartz/Terra/Gilgamesh, and Viewtiful Joe could get the people going.

When it comes to first party characters, I think leading with Ridley was a bad choice because all people are going to want now are wish fulfillment picks rather than actually looking at the new crop of characters and games from the latest generations and will feel cheated if Sakurai goes with the latter.

Opinion on the first party character Hades from Kid Icarus: Uprising?
>>
>>423906838
Trevor too. He's really relevant right now thanks to the Castlevania anime, and with Season 2 confirmed not much earlier this year, I really hope if we get a Belmont it'll be either him or Richter.
>>
>>
>>423901565
sans undertale
>>
>>423906838

Let's be real here: The moment they made the Cloud exemption was the moment they knew nothing was stopping them from using SoTN Alucard. That magnificent creature could fit Smash like a glove either a Mage Knight or even cooler, a dedicated Summon fighter.

>>423906884

Hades has great personality in NA at least but the problem is that he's literally Skyscraper-size and all of his fights revolved around that. He'd make for a great stage but for a new KI rep, I think Magnus or Gaol would be better choices.
>>
>>423906950
I'd be fine with Trevor but he doesn't really have as much moveset potential as the others.
>>
>>423906884
Hades is great but there's literally no reason for a new Kid Icarus rep considering the series has been in limbo since 2012. Palutena (and Dark Pit) only got in because Uprising was released right before Sakurai began conceptualizing Smash 4 and its roster.
>>
>>423907101
Haven't we learned that size is not a factor?

Gods have been shown with the ability to project themselves as humongous in the game, so its pretty believable Hades can scale himself down if Nintendo and Sakurai wanted it.
>>
>>423901565
Spongebob, Sora, Miku and Goku. And a celebrity guest appearance.
>>
>>423907101
Alucard would make for such an interesting fighter. He has loads of weapons he can use magic. Alucard is possibly as recognizable as Simon as well just from being in SotN. I want this now.
>>
>>423907125

That's a lot my issue with Simon or Trevor's inclusion: they're a little gimped by only having the whip and sub-weapons [and even then, I don't know if Standards and Practices will let them throw crucifixes and bibles around]. Given Richter's movement tech, he's a lot more "complete" feeling and the Item Crashes could make for neat Smashes or specials.

>>423907245

That was just Viridi and Palutena, and even then those were projections. Hades has always and will always be huge. The chapter Scorched Feathers goes into detail about it.
>>
>>423907101
>Skyscraper-size
Too big you say?

i don't disagree with you i just wanted to use the meme

>>423907505
I think have Hades scaled down to Ganondorf's size wouldn't be that big of a deal. Though, I definitely understand where you're coming from. It WOULD be kinda weird.

Having a moveset using only the whip and sub weapons would be possible. I can easily see the axe, dagger, crucifix, and holy water being specials. Including Richter instead of Simon would give them a lot more to work with though and I think the character would be better for it. I'm hoping Simon doesn't get included just because he was the Nintendo Belmont.
Also I know Sakurai likes to be faithful to how a character feels but I could do without that jump arc in Smash.

k rool and geno are no brainers since a lot of people really want them.

simon would be real cool and might get people interested in a new castlevania game (which is sort of why i would like to see him).

heihachi would be a good reveal for evo since you could maybe draw more people from other fgc communities. it also might get namco interested enough to actually make the tekken x street fighter game since we'd be able to have ryu and heihachi fight in smash.

if master chief actually got in then i think a ton of people would lose it since he isn't likely at all. he could be the one who get's tons of normals into smash.

This mentality that they always need to one-up themselves for every new Smash game has always been a dead end. Expanding the roster in that way only benefits you hype mongrels who will play for a few weeks and move on. And everybody who has ever defended their outlandish, nonsense picks with "but Cloud got in, all bets are off!" deserves to be gassed.
