Between Fire Emblem's recent spike of popularity, Sakurai's love for the series, and Smash fans hating cuts....I'm not so sure we will have less than 6 next Smash. If 1 or 2 do end up leaving they will almost certainly be replaced by more Fire Emblem characters or as DLC.

What do you think?
I like games and anime. My favorite games include the following: Mother 1-3, Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Cross, Zelda LA-ALttP-OoT-MM-ALBW, and Super Smash Bros.

Probably. Marth and Ike are definitely here to stay, and I'd be surprised to see Robin go either. Roy seems to have a pretty big fanbase, especially in Japan, and the same goes for Lucina (plus unless she takes like no effort unless they decide to change her moveset, which I wouldn't be against.) Heck, even Corrin has the virtues of repping (the quite successful) Fates and the transforming classes.

Honestly, I'm actually hoping for Anna since she's in most games and her classes in those alone give her access to swords, bows, axes, lances, and staves, which is pretty much everything major we're missing. She even has a tank in Warriors. Aside from her though, Fire Emblem has enough, and it wouldn't break my heart to lose Roy or Corrin.

We'll have to see. I watched people bellow from the rooftops Inkling was getting in because they say so and Sakurai still picked Corrin anyway. The man always catches people off guard and despite what he says about "current trends" its obvious to me no character's chances are less or greater than anybody else's.

To me another Fire Emblem character is as likely as a character from any unrepresented series.

NOA employees stood filming 8 hours of Smash footage and Sakurai told them they did it wrong and wasted their time

I'd say we're likely sticking at six. I could see us either not getting any newcomers or dropping Lucina or (please no) Roy again for a newcomer.
The impossible is possible! All you gotta do is make it so!

At the very least, I could see them dropping down to 5, with them cutting Roy and Lucina and then adding a new FE character.

However, due to how popular all of them are at this point--as well as the Smash fanbase's hatred of cuts--it's more likely that they will all remain, in addition to getting a new character from the next FE game.

The characters dropping has less to do with the fans and more to do with Sakurai. He wants as many to make it through as possible. Under a different producer the only locks I can see from FE is Marth and Corrin with Robin being a possibility.

Ideally Lucina, Roy, and Corrin get cut next Smash.
Fun fact: Playing the nostalgia goggles card shows you have nothing of value to say and are grasping at straws to argue with someone.

There's no real reason to cut Corrin.

Neither Roy, especially since he was brought back as DLC.
