Fill a roster using 1 character per franchise

I was curious to see how hard it would be to narrow down characters and look into lesser known franchises... but this actually turned out to be really fun and interesting!

Here's a list of 44 I came up with, using one character per franchise.

Mario
Donkey Kong
Wario
Yoshi
Link
Marth
Isaac
Shulk
Kirby
Olimar
Ness
Pit
Samus
Fox
Captain Falcon
Saki
Pikachu
Starfy
Eddy (Fluidity Spin Cycle... he's a water spirit-- it'd be cool to play with water)
Animal Crosser
Ray MK II (Custom Robo)
Andy (Advance Wars)
Goose (Pilotwings)
Doshin the Giant
Dillon
Pushmo
Chibi Robo
Mii
Dr. Kawashima
Professor Layton
Baxter (the dog from Rhythm Heaven)
Mr. Game & Watch
R.O.B.
Ice Climbers
Little Mac
Excitebiker
Mike Jones (Startropics)

Feel free to try and come up with a better roster!

^ Good list.

It's amazing how cool a roster like that could be. You'd be missing out on a lot of great characters, but still...

I think this is a testament to Nintendo's brands that such an exercise is possible.

I feel like, if I expanded my definition of a Franchise, I could probably include a few more.
Pokemon Ranger, for example.

Honestly I feel like the only things I would be notably bothered about by this would be the lack of Peach, Bowser, Zelda, Ganondorf, and either Metaknight or Dedede.

Also, I chose Pokemon Trainer, under the assumption that from this one character you could pick between 6 different Pokemon; possibly one from each gen.
Pikachu, Togepi, and Lucario are musts, idk so much about 3rd, 5th and 6th, though.
