I used to support Pacman

But now I've thought about it, and he really doesn't belong in Smash Bros. Yes, he's a video game icon, but this isn't a game for video game icons, it's a game for NINTENDO icons. Sonic got in because he was the long time rival of Mario. Megaman got in because his games were synonymous with Nintendo, to the point where many people thought he was owned by Nintendo. Snake...also doesn't really belong here honestly, but Sakurai wanted to make his BFFL happy. But what importance does Pacman have to Nintendo? He's appeared on most of their systems? Well that's true, but he's appeared on almost every system period and brought nothing special to his Nintendo appearances. As much as I would like to see Mario vs Sonic vs Megaman vs Pacman, I no longer believe that this is the game to do it. Pacman means nothing more to Nintendo than he does to Sony, Microsoft, Sega, Apple, Atari, etc and therefore can't really be a Nintendo All Star. I think Sakurai actually was trying to tell us something when he said a Namco rep isn't guaranteed.

Pac-Man was the very first third-party character EVER on Nintendo.

Snake was NEVER a Nintendo icon yet got into SSBB.

Your argument is invalid, Pacman is perfectly valid rep.

This I did not know, I guess that does make him more relevant to Nintendo.

As for Snake, I agree that he didn't belong in, but my argument here wasn't that Pacman won't be in, but rather that he shouldn't be in.

I never supported Pac-Man. I don't see any moveset potential. IF he does get in, it will just be a generic punch/kick thing. Maybe a nod to the arcade game for his FS.

I will give you Captain Falcon, Ice Climbers, and ROB.
But, Villager's moveset consists of his items from the game, and WFT moves so far have been entirely stances. Even Captain Falcon has Falcon Punch and his FS, but other than that I don't think he has ever used any of his moves before.
