Amaterasu will most likely be one of the later characters.

I'd put it as an understatement if I were to say that Amaterasu has been by far my most wanted character for Smash ever since I started playing Okami back in 2019 (nearly 2 years ago what the heck).

She has everything going for her in terms of what she can bring to the table: a unique moveset utilizing Divine Instruments, the Celestial Brush, and possibly even the Godhood mechanic; a beautiful artstyle that makes for some of the most visually appealing stage options based off Japanese ink-wash paintings(If she does get in I'm hoping the Ark of Yamato is her stage); a godlike (get it?) soundtrack that's uniquely Japanese (or Ainu for the Kamui soundtrack). She'd be one of the most unique newcomers in all aspects of her representation.

Is she a lock for DLC? Oh heck no! She definitely has her hurdles, ranging from her series's niche nature to tough competition with Capcom's other possible picks (although I definitely wouldn't be against Dante or Phoenix tho). Regardless, she still has a chance and so long as that is fact, I'll be supporting her to the very end!

Here's some art I made in support of her inclusion in like an hour or something in Clip Studio and Photoshop:

That is very nice artwork

Don’t know if it’s real but there’s a leak that has got almost all the characters from fighters pass 1 and 2 right except for min min, and Amaterasu is on that list

MH costumes seem to be back. And with an Arthur mii costume to boot, now that concerns me more about a Capcom characters chances.

Just dropping by to show support for Ammy! I wasn't able to play Okami until the HD version on Switch last year, but by the time I finally beat it, it became one of my all-time favorite games! I don't think I've ever played a more visually-interesting game in my life. I loved the game's gameplay, music and sense of humor as well. I would love to see Ammy come to Smash, even though a part of me feels like she isn't likely. She was easily one of my favorite additions to Marvel vs Capcom 3, and I'd love to see Ammy fight against the biggest names in gaming in the greatest video game crossover of all time!

Here's hoping the goddess blesses us with her appearance 🙏

Amaterasu would be an amazing character with an amazing moveset (kind of like Prince Fluff from Kirby Epic Yarn), but I don't see it happening :(. I loved Okami, it was a great and unique game.

Three characters that I would love to see in Smash but they don't have a chance are:

1. Amaterasu
2. Prince Fluff
3. Epic Mickey (Or Oswald).
