As we all know, during the late stages of SSBM's development, Hideo Kojima, one of Masahiro Sakurai's closest friends, urged and begged him to include his pride and joy, Solid Snake.

He was announced for SSBB in the first trailer, opening up the door for third parties, and in Brawl, Sonic was also included for being Mario's rival/friend, and for the downright EXCESSIVE amounts of fan demand, as he was one of THE most requested characters, and DEFINITELY the most requested Third Party character.(Yes, ahead of Geno.)

But do you think Sonic, or Snake, or ANY Third Party characters at all, would have been in Smash Bros. if Kojima was out of the equation, and had never urged Sakurai to include Snake? Vote in the poll, and leave your more detailed thoughts in the comments.
