Another newcomer perspective of the previous two games: New reps for old series.

There have already been topics on how many series were introduced in Melee and Brawl. So lets try comparing new reps for established series and see if we might estimate how many newcomers we'll get representing previous games. And yes, if something has its own emblem, it is its own series. None of this "Wario is a Mario newcomer" whining.

Melee:
Mario: 3 (Peach, Bowser, Dr. Mario)
Zelda: 3 (Zelda, Ganondorf, Y. Link) or 4 (If you count Sheik separately)
Star Fox: 1 (Falco)
Pokemon: 2 (Mewtwo, Pichu)

Total: 9 or 10

Brawl:
Donkey Kong: 1 (Diddy Kong)
Zelda 1 (If you choose to count T. Link. Otherwise, take one off of whichever final count you take)
Metroid: 0 or 1 (Depending on if you count ZSS as her own character)
Star Fox: 1 (Wolf)
Pokemon: 2 (Pokemon Trainer, Lucario) or 4 (Depening on if you count PT as 1 or 3 characters)
Kirby: 2 (Meta Knight, King Dedede)
Mother/Earthbound: 1 (Lucas)
Fire Emblem: 1 (Ike)

Total: 9 or 12

So while I kind of doubt we'll see as many new reps for old series this time around, I'd say it's all but a given that we'll see at least a few more in this game. Thoughts?
