I am not a supporter, but I would like to see Chosen Undead be playable just to see how his moveset would translate into Smash. I am also a sucker for the horror and Gothic nature of the environments so the stage would be really cool. Some of the music is also great. So while he is not even in my top 3 most wanted Bamco characters, I think people don't give Chosen Undead enough credit. He could certainly be unique with a defensive playstyle and he comes from an iconic series that has apparently been the gold standard for difficulty, at least according to some journalists who have contributed to Dark Souls having its own line of memes.

I would like to join the chosen undead club. After seeing how Sakurai design Steve moveset, I think thay can do justice to Chosen Undead. Dark Souls and Minecraft are the most influential games of the decade, and although I’m not a 100% fan of Dark Souls but I would not be mad if they chose him as a future DLC fighter.

As some have said, I agreed that they should include an stamina bar, the parry technique and etus flask (5 per stock, no refill like Banjo-Kazooie gold wings). Considering they are various classes in DS that focuses on different things, I think that Smash team would focus on the universal features of the souls trilogy. That gets me to imagine Chosen Undead as a sword and shield fighter, who can change from one-hand sword to two-hand user, dealing more damage but decreasing its defense.

The default alt is the elite knight set, then as alternative you would have faaram and firelink armor set (+ one different color variation for each of them). They are the most iconic armor set of each Souls game. Each armor would also have their own sword and shield (like Hero).

Just like Steve, the final 2 alts would have different names, one is Solaire of Astoria (iconic NPC, it even has its own Amiibo) and Black Knight (important DS enemy, plus, the Dark Knight figure is common and popular in medieval settings like FE games).

As the stage, I choose Firelink Shrine based on the first game, its one of the first places you visit and most known by general public. Just like Mementos, depending on the music, the background color will change and like KOF Stadium, different NPCs will appear at the background.

For music, put different bosses songs, 3/4 from each title.

I still think this has a legit chance. More so than a "Tales of" character.

Bandai Namco, Japanese (important), popularity in both the West and Japan, and the series is contemporary. Dark Souls Remastered is on the Switch too. Chosen Undead ticks all the boxes.

So I've been thinking a bit...say Chosen Undead does make it into Smash Bros. Would his content be mainly Dark Souls or would it go beyond that and be just general Soulsborne/FromSoft content as well, much like SNK? I mean, I wanna listen to Cleric Beast in battle or fight a Flamelurker Spirit, but I don't know of the chances in that regard. You guys' thoughts?

I think mostly Dark Souls. For one, Demon’s Souls and BloodBorne are owned by Sony.
