Did Sakurai take into consideration fan favorites at all when he made brawl?

Like did he even bother to look and see who were the most requested characters on the nintendo and samsh forums, is that why he put in Sonic and Wolf at the last second?

These people are meat virgins. They'll be taken by the grill and delicately and tenderly be shown the ways of flavorful meat love. The first time is beautiful.

Sonic was the last character added.

Though Jigglypuff, Toon Link and Wolf were added pretty late too.

Mewtwo, Roy, Dr. Mario, Dixie Kong, Plusle & Minun, and Toon Zelda/Toon Sheik were suppose to be in but didn't make it through development.

Aside from Sonic, he mentioned Wario's popularity. He also mentioned Saki being popular. I don't recall any other mentions of popularity.

If he did look at fan requests there is no proof it involved requests from those sites. Sakurai did have his own poll though.

Sonic was the last character added.

Actually, Wolf was the last character added. He was the only one on the disc that didn't have a victory theme.

Sakurai himself stated that Sonic was the last character added.

Wasn't Wolf added because he saw how popular Fox and Falco were in competitions?
