I feel really good about Dee potentially being one of the five DLC characters. I absolutely agree he’s in a better spot than most characters.

And apologies to you as well. Isaac really didn't deserve an unceremonious quick Assist Trophy deconfirmation. Here's to future Smash titles!Just stopping in from isaac boards to let you know we feel for you, goomba with a hat was always the dumbest argument and then they literally add a plain pirhanna plant. Ballot my ***
I believe Dixie and Octolings were seen as spirits. Otherwise decent picks. I don't see Gen 8 Pokemon as likely though. Smash's development time (even DLC) doesn't line up for it at all. Geno or Sora might be the best bets.Hi Bandana Waddle Dee supporters, and cheers from the Paper Mario support thread! I just made this (long) comment on the Paper Mario support thread that kinda applies to Bandana Waddle Dee as well (warning, it's long):
"We literally got a Mario character that started with the letter "P" and it wasn't Paper Mario... .-.
But is it really game over for us? Hear me out:
Paper Mario isn't an AT. That's a very big plus for his inclusion as a potential DLC character. He may not be a Spirit either. If he is then (maybe) RIP, but otherwise we still have a decent chance. (Dillon is both a Spirit and an AT, but I don't think a playable character can be both honestly.)
Sakurai basically confirmed that we will be getting 5 DLC characters (if we exclude Piranha Plant). My guess/theory is that those 5 characters was planned for the base roster, but due to time constraints and whatnot, those 5 couldn't be finished in time. (IIRC Sakurai said that we will be getting those 5 fighters within next year, meaning that he must have done some prework on them already, since creating a character from scratch takes about 6 months or so. (That was Smash 4 Mewtwo's case, if you remember.)) So instead of scrapping them he wanted to make them as DLC. It is very likely that he chose those "lucky" 5 characters from the Smash Ballot. Which popular (or recent characters) characters are left?
Rex: Mii Costume
Skull Kid: AT
Bandana Waddle Dee
Octoling (Splatoon 2)
Someone else I've might forgotten.
If we narrow down the choices we've got these characters left:
Bandana Waddle Dee
Octoling (Splatoon 2)
If those characters didn't have a shot at being DLC then I think at the very least Bandana Waddle Dee (given his popularity) and Paper Mario would have been Assist Trophies. Of course, they could just be Spirits like everyone else, but I'd really think that Sakurai would have made them ATs instead, maybe even Elma, Dixie Kong, Octoling and Banjo-Kazooie too.
So my prediction of who the 5 DLC characters will be are following:
Bandana Waddle Dee
Either a Gen VIII Pokémon to promote the next Pokémon generation or a crazy Sakurai pick (i.e. Chorus Kids) or a Square Enix character (possibly Geno, given the Square Enix rumor and Sakurai wanting him in Brawl)
If I understood it correctly, we would'nt get any more Echo fighters, meaning that Dixie Kong and Octoling are out. (Though they could still be semi-clones.) So my conclusion is that Paper Mario very well could be a DLC character! He actually still has a shot! (Though I'm not gonna raise my expectations way too high, but they have risen nonetheless.)
Guys, we still have hope! Don't lose it until it is over! All popular ballot characters (that aren't playable fighters) have been represented in either as an Assist Trophy or as a Mii costume. (In the case of Geno he may still be in despite being a Spirit, but I doubt so and now actually believes that a Square Enix not Geno will be a character.)
The only things I can see that speaks against Paper Mario is that if he is a Spirit and that being a Spirit equals not being a playable character (á la Assist Trophies), or this: Every DLC fighter will come with their own stage. Paper Mario already has a stage named "Paper Mario". Either he will get another stage, or he isn't a DLC character because of this. (There are rumored to be 5 more stages and they line up with Sakurai's "5 DLC characters, 5 new stages" plan, so this could either hinder Paper Mario's chances or simply mean that we will get another Paper Mario stage!)
We believe in you, Paper Mario!"
Yeah this kinda applies to you as well. n_n Cheers!
Piranha Plant is a generic enemy. People were against Bandana Dee because they think he's 'generic' as well, so they called him a 'Hat Goomba'. Bandana Dee isn't a joke character, we're just saying that he's more likely than ever now due to Piranha's inclusionWait, if Piranha was meant to be a joke character, why does this destroy the Hat Goomba argument? I don't think BWD should be considered a joke character.
B D definitely would've deserved the spot more, if it wasnt that it's really a wtf character that they like to addPiranha Plant is a generic enemy.

Pretty much this. Granted, the Piranha Plant is basically a joke character but the point still remains that they bothered to make it into what they did.Seriously, anyone complaining about Bandana Waddle Dee being a Goomba with a headband can get ****ed after that Piranha Plant reveal.
