So apart from Takamaru, which retro characters do people consider?

I know we've all sort of latched on to the idea that because his game was among the Nintendo Land attractions he's likely, but is there really so few other likely candidates that we can't think of anyone else?

I ask because I don't know very many retro games apart from the big popular ones (I had NEVER heard of Ice Climbers or ROB prior to their Smash debuts) and I was genuinely wondering if there's some other good ones that I should consider.

Well, most of the other retro characters that people bring up are characters that Sakurai considered for Melee and shot down.

I think Lip, Pauline, and Balloon Fighter and I prefer them over Takamaru.

I don't really want Takamaru, I'd much rather have Balloon Fighter and/or Duck Hunt Dog.

Mike Jones for American representation (because we deserve to troll Japan with games they never got for once).

To be fair, if you go by Sakurai quotes, then Takamaru is shot down as well, since he hasn't gotten another game in his series.

Lip, Little Mac and Takamaru are the only ones with a real chance.
