Did people really want Little Mac & Isaac during the pre-Melee days?

K. Rool's support didn't really take off until after Diddy was confirmed, and by then it was too late. Here's hoping he's added this time.

I wanted Little Mac and Isaac in Brawl.

For Melee, I didn't even have time to consider a roster. It was announced, I saw Link and Sheik, and that was it.

Despite being a Nintendo fan, I literally only played Pokemon and Zelda for the most part. I had played Punch Out and everything on NES and a few on N64, but I was just a Zelda guy, so I didn't 'want' anyone in Melee other than Link, Sheik, Ganondorf and maybe Skull Kid.

I remember back then I didn't quite grasp the concept of a fighting game with Nintendo all stars, so I was hoping Melee would include the likes of Sailor Moon and Harry Potter.

I admit, back when the first Super Smash Bros. game was out, I just simply thought about the idea of Little Mac being in because he's a Nintendo character. I didn't have any desire to see him in or anything. It was just one of those fun ideas when you go "Hey, he or she is a Nintendo character so they can work". Back then, I didn't really have any demand for certain characters (though I was surprised at no Banjo & Kazooie). I was just eagerly waiting for the sequel to see what it brings.

I didn't start thinking about it again until long after I bought Melee and unlocked everything. When I saw all those trophies of those retro NES characters I grew up on (such as the Ducks from Duck Hunt and Excitebike), I was surprised and disappointed when I realized that there was no trophy of Little Mac. I mean, you had Pit, Stanley, Mach Rider, Ducks, Excitebike, and Bubbles but not Little Mac? Seemed like a very obvious choice for a "Nintendo Museum". So I didn't have as much of a problem with him not being playable as I did with him not even having a trophy appearance at least.

After playing Punch-Out!! on Animal Crossing and Super Punch-Out!! on Fight Night Round 2 (years after I last played them on the NES and SNES respectively), I came from just wanting Little Mac to make an appearance to wanting him to be a playable.

As for Isaac, well even though I never played the Golden Sun games, I have heard about them and read up on the characters. Being from an RPG, I thought Isaac would make a good Smash Bros. character if Link, Marth, and Roy could. In fact, I thought he'd surely get in Brawl as a playable character so I was little surprise he was just an assist trophy. Still, I can't call myself a supporter if I never played any of those games but I think he'd be great if he was playable.
