Characters are not the only reps.

There's also stages, items, trophies, music, etc.

And yet all we ever care about are the characters that we play around with.
Can you defeat a Level 9 Mewtwo in Melee with Pichu? Yes, if you have that kind of skill.

I think everyone cares a little for trophies.

A little more for songs

Medium for stages

A little more than for stages when talking about Assists

Of course the playable characters are the basis of the hype. They are the one you play with. They are the more important.

Stages and music I care about.

The only items and trophies I care about are assist trophies (and Pokeballs to a lesser extent).

Characters and music are the only things I really care about in terms of representation. Stages don't really stand out to me unless they are really bad or much better than average (in terms of function, not representation), and I don't tend to use items (e.g., pokeballs and assist trophies) when playing.

Personally, I put priority on playable characters because it's the bulk of the game. I'm not listening to every song, not playing every stage, not utilizing every item and not throwing every Pokeball/using every Assist Trophy. I'm not always looking at trophies.

I AM, however, looking and playing as the characters for the vast majority of my game time, far, FAR longer than anything else. That's why I invest my attention on characters.

Animal Crossing was repped as a stage in Brawl. And not a single duck was given in that game...
Because I can...
