Which characters should have appeared earlier in the franchise than they did?

One character in particular that has always bugged me is Wario. Wario was a big thing by the time SSB came out; due to the limited nature of the roster, however, he was understandably not present. By Melee, though, he simply should have been included. He was a mainstay of the Mario spin-offs, had a successful line of video games, and has been around since 1992, nearly a decade by that time.

It was also odd that Diddy Kong took as long as he did.

Little Mac, King K. Rool and Ridley should have been added in Melee/Brawl.

Agreed with Little Mac. Honestly, this is the best chance he's ever had right now, is SSB4. If he doesn't get in now, tea table flipped.

I'm still trying to figure out how the heck Jigglypuff got in before Mewtwo.

No one liked playing as Mewtwo, everyone liked playing as Jigglypuff

Diddy Kong like the OP mentioned. Also surprised that it took so long to get more than 1 Kirby character.

I really feel as if there should have been a game between Melee and Brawl. To include characters like Wario, Diddy Kong, Little Mac and take care of clones.

I'm sure they could have taken Melee, fixed/booted the clones, update some graphics/modes and add a few characters and released it a few years after Melee. Maybe 2003 or 2004.

Pokemon Trainer was the truly essential character missing from the get go. He IS the playable maincharacter from Pokemon after all.

I would have loved Pit to appear earlier, but I understand him not appearing (with him not having any games and whatnot)

Diddy Kong, King Dedede and maybe Wario are the few Brawl newcomers who should have been in Melee. Maybe Little Mac could have been in Brawl if Pit was added earlier.

From a popularity perspective, it also would have made sense for Mewtwo or Charizard to be in over Jigglypuff in 64.
