Hello again, this is simply what I think would be a good roster of characters with a fair chance of making it in. A few notes first:
- I've included alt costumes, which in some cases may be separate characters with their own unique voice sets and taunts, but the exact same moves. Alt costumes don't count as a character slot. If there's no alt costume, it's because I couldn't think of one!
- I don't know much about Fire Emblem save for the fact a lot of people think Chrom is a good candidate and no one likes Roy.
- I also don't know much about F-Zero.
- I've limited third party characters to, at most, three per company. I've also chosen what I feel to be either well known characters, either currently or as retro characters, they also must have appeared on a Nintendo system. For this reason, I've tended towards picking only one character from each third party series (save for one).
- I also tried to pick new characters with good scope for unique movesets.
- I've also limited series representations to a maximum of four. Admittedly, the Mario series is a bit of a cheat, but I'm using the same separation that was in Brawl.
- I haven't included Ridley. This is for a couple of reasons, but I'm not going to get in an argument about it here. If you don't think I'm right, just pretend I added him and move on.
- I chose a Moogle instead of a specific Final Fantasy character as a good generic character with a lot of personality, which has been known to fight in the series and can change jobs to give a unique moveset.
- Travis Touchdown is in because No More Heroes 1 & 2 are fun games and Suda 51 expressed an interest in getting him in there.
- Bayonetta is in to promote Bayonetta 2, which seems like a thing that would happen.
- Characters that almost made the cut: Zero, Viewtiful Joe and Soma Cruz (alt: Alucard).
- Risky choices: Captain Syrup, Prince Fluff.

It was so perfect and then I didn't see Palutena :(. Still it has three of my other favorites and I can't deny i'd be happy with this. 10/10.
Pauline, Palutena, Bayonetta, Cptn. Syrup, Eirika, Micaiah, Anna, Lyn, Lucina, Shantae, Lip, Andy, Medusa, Birdo, & Mike Jones for SSB4!
It was a decent roster until I saw no Palutena and too many 3rd party characters. 5/10
Palutena, Micaiah, Shulk, Chrom, Female Pokemon Trainer, Roy, Ashley, Mona, and Megaman for SSB4.
