Disclaimer: I don't subscribe to the idea that Gematsu is real, but a lot of people want Shulk and a RH rep and there was room for them. I do not believe that this is the final roster. It is merely what I perceive to be a reasonable roster. I do not care if you hate <x> character. It does not rule out their likelihood.
First Row Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Bowser Jr., Rosalina, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong, King K. Rool, Yoshi, Mii Fighter (not separate slots; you assign each Mii a fighter type which can be changed later)
Second Row Link, Zelda, Sheik, Toon Link, Tetra, Ganondorf (new moveset), Fox, Falco, Wolf, Krystal, Shulk, Isaac
Fourth Row Captain Falcon, Black Shadow (inherits Ganondorf's Brawl moveset), Ness, Lucas, Wario, Kirby, King Dedede, Meta Knight, Samus, Zero Suit Samus, Ridley, RH rep (haven't played the games, so I don't know the characters, I am 99% sure it wouldn't be Chorus Men based on mechanical issues)
Fifth Row Villager, Olimar, Little Mac, Wii Fit Trainer, Mr Game & Watch, Ice Climbers, ROB, Sonic, Mega Man, Pac Man, Snake, Random --- 4e is not D&D, but WoW making a Disguise check. 3DS Friend Code: 3711-8030-8551; Trainer Name: Solace; First Pokemon (RP): Female Fennekin (Ambrosia)
Looks decent. I hate Random as a character though, and for this reason he should be removed from the roster. --- 3DS FC: 2449-4679-3250 | AC:NL Town: Kakariko | NNID: Awesome105 Pokemon X Rock Safari: Macargo, Boldore, Barbaracle
How do you figure Tetra is a better choice than Impa or Ghirahim?
Less controversial? Idk, she's just the first to come to mind. --- 4e is not D&D, but WoW making a Disguise check. 3DS Friend Code: 3711-8030-8551; Trainer Name: Solace; First Pokemon (RP): Female Fennekin (Ambrosia)
Do you have another idea to replace him? With 6 Pokemon reps, Mario probably needs a 6th as well, or are you just being contrary?
Sadly, considering that Jigglypuff has been in every Smash game, it seems unlikely that she will be cut, and there are already 6 Pokemon reps on this roster. I'd rather have Sceptile than Jigglypuff, but I have to be realistic.
Technically, Pac Man, Mega Man, and Little Mac are all retro reps. As for the 60 character bloat, I could cut a few: The most likely cuts being Snake, Tetra, Dixie Kong, and Black Shadow, bringing the total character count to 55.
If these cuts were to be made, it'd mean 3 reps cut from Brawl (Snake, Squirtle, and Ivysaur), 1 returning veteran, and 18 total newcomers (assuming Mii Fighters are considered one), one of which is a clone of Marth, which is not inconceivable considering that 11 have been revealed already, there are a probably a couple more Newcomer videos, and 4 newcomers to Brawl weren't revealed until after release. --- 4e is not D&D, but WoW making a Disguise check. 3DS Friend Code: 3711-8030-8551; Trainer Name: Solace; First Pokemon (RP): Female Fennekin (Ambrosia)
