I tried to logically make sense of what we could expect from a new roster. Let me know if you agree about probabilities!

Confirmed New Characters
-Villager
-Mega Man
-Wii Fit Trainer

Likely New Characters
- Mewtwo (with “awakened” as Final Smash)
- Chrom
- Bayonetta
- New Pokemon for PT

Possible New Characters or Assist Trophies
- Pilot (Pilotwings)
- Dixie Kong
- Mii (Wii series moveset?)
- Isa Jo (Sin & Punishment)
- Shulk (Xenoblade)

Likely Deleted Characters
- Toon Link (He’s in the background of the train level)
- Wolf (Ala Dr. Mario, he’s a second clone)
- Ike
- Snake
- Lucario

Possibly Deleted Characters
- R.O.B.
- Captain Olimar (To be replaced with a Pikmin 3 Captain?)
- Sonic (Although I really doubt it)

The words "realistic" and "Bayonetta" do not fit into the same topic.

Neither does Xenoblade or Mii. Honestly, this is a really scrappy roster prediction as far as realistic expectations go.

When I say realistic, I mean for Sakurai. For instance, Toad, Little Mac, and Waluigi might be more realistic than Bayonetta, but I see her chances of getting in being higher than theirs in that she brings different things to the table.

Just a few reasons for that:
(1) She is a girl; this helps balance the roster a bit.
(2) Her moveset allows for a different approach than other characters.
(3) The character is now associated with Nintendo.
(4) She would be an easily acquirable third-party character (Her creators have already given the okay in an interview).

The same reasons, besides 1 and 4, could be said for Shulk, but that's why I listed him as "possible" and not "probable." Mii is similar to Wii Fit Trainer in terms of "out there," has a pretty obvious moveset, and is representative of Nintendo's newer franchises.

Guest characters are special occasions. Regardless of Nintendo publishing Bayonetta 2, she's still a Sega character.

Sonic - gaming icon, 20+ years old, 85 million copies sold
Snake - gaming icon, 20+ years old, 32 million copies sold
Mega Man - gaming icon, 20+ years old, 29 million copies sold

Bayonetta... doesn't quite fit. She's not important enough to warrant third-party playability.

Nice list, though I think Lil mac should be added to the most likely to get in.For one he's second most recent IP to get revived in a game. Plus it's highly speculated that he has a stage in the game: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/633202-super-smash-bros-for-wii-u/66465585?page=8
