So I made this topic once for Smash 4 and thought to do it again.

Basically what character/s that you have a neutral opinion on would you want to be added for a group that you’re not really part of or have no real interest in.

I’d go with probably Ridley this time. I feel like frankly he should just be made playable now cause this joke about Ridley being too big is getting old.

Ridley and K. Rool. I've played most Metroid and DK games but I don't care too much about either character making it in. They aren't super great. That being said I'd love for their fanbases to get the character they've been wanting forever. Though I do feel the Ridley fans should be a little more grateful. So many fandoms would kill for all the special attention Ridley gets.

Sora, Chibi-Robo, Elma, Geno, Dixie Kong: I'm not a fan but I can see the appeal and I'd be happy for their fans if they get in. They are all charming characters with their own merits.
King K.Rool and Ridley: I just want their fans to shut up.

I never really played Metroid too much until Samus returns.

I loved Ridley beforehand though. As for a character I’m not super hyped for but wouldn’t mind seeing for fans is k rool. He seems alright but a lot of people have given him great moveset so I’d be happy for them if it happened

Though I haven’t actually played very many Kirby games not directed by Sakurai, I would be happy to see Bandana Dee playable for the sake of his fans, who I’ve seen can be just as passionate as I am for Ridley.

Also, Toad is another character who I feel is long overdue for inclusion.

A character from Rhythm Heaven would do justice to Smash and the fans of the game Rhythm Heaven would be happy.
but the topic asks for characters we want to make others happy... I don't think that citing a Ehythm Heaven character is legit when you have 3 characters from that series in your signature...

Problem is I'm pretty much down for any character that joins Smash because that is just another opponent that could be interesting to fight.

King K. Rool - I pretty much have no attachment to this character. He seems like a cartoony goofy villain in the 3d appearances i've seen, and I only saw one of his boss fights in one of the games (gamegrumps were playing it). The main reason why I don't care is I view King K. Rool the same way I view bowser and they do have a lot of similarities. Fun character to fight every once in a while, and not a character that I wouldn't complain about playing if I got them when picking random. Basically not a bad character, it's just a character that's not amazing.

Krystal - It's been so many years since I've played a Star Fox game, and the only one I own is Star Fox Assault (which I loved btw...). So while I may have wanted Krystal in before, I just don't care so much anymore just because I don't play Star Fox a bunch. Though I bet a lot of people would like her in.

Black Shadow - 2 reasons. More reps for F-zero, and it will give an excuse for Ganondorf to stop being a clone of Captain Falcon. I haven't played a F-zero game so it's hard to care about someone I know nothing about.

Xenoblade 2 rep - I don't know anything about Xenoblade 2 (I watched chugga's whole playthrough of Xenoblade Chronicles, and I played Xenoblade Chronicles X until I hit a hard wall of grind since I don't have the time to grind anymore). Though I've heard many people praise Xenoblade 2 sooo much so it'd be nice to see people happy for that. (Though.... if there's more wooshy wooshy laser swords like with Shulk, I might be interested)

Then a bunch of third party characters

I'm down to see just about anyone in Smash, as long as they have an interesting move-set. As far as character inclusions that don't necessarily interest me, but would be great to see in the game for others:

Ridley: These fans have suffered too long, its long past time for his appearance (as a K. Rool supporter, I understand exactly how this feels)
Bandanna Dee: An up an comer in one of Nintendo's longest running franchises absolutely deserves a spot
Sora: I haven't played any Kingdom Hearts, but I understand just how big a deal his inclusion would be, and he is absolutely worthy of it.

Geno, I've never really had any opinion on him, and my sole exposure to him has been through Smash speculation, but I always liked the idea of a fanbase rallying around a relatively obscure character like him and getting him into the game, and not because he's relevant, important or an icon, but just because he'd be cool to have in Smash.

King K. Rool definitely! I always underestimated the hype surrounding him until recently

Back in SSB4 this type of character to me was Mewtwo. I wasn't full on supporting him but oh boy when he was announced to be DLC, seeing everyone hyped was heartwarming

And to everyone saying Ridley, you guys are awesome <3

Ridley

I like Ridley and I think Metroid deserves a newcomer like him, but I don't think I would use him much, it's not the kind of character I like playing in Smash Bros.

So while he's not one of my most wanted characters I want him mostly to please the community and give Metroid some love

Chibi-Robo. His fans had to put up with Nintendo not localizing Chibi-Robo 3, then not having any games for over half a decade, and then having the entire future of the series bank on a mediocre spin-off. They deserve better than that, and hopefully Sakurai will give it to them.

One of my close friends' biggest wants for the next Smash is a playable Paper Mario. I don't know much about him, but I can tell that, if he were to my announced, my friend would be extremely excited as well. He is also a big Ace Attorney fan, so, if Phoenix Wright got in, the hype would be real for him. Another one of my friends wants Joker from Persona 5; just like the other two I mentioned before, the hype would be real for them and would most certainly rub off on me as well. I also want King K. Rool to appease those who have been requesting for him since the Brawl era.

The Smash Fanbase make me warm up with K. Rool and ended up wanting him.

Funny enough, I start liking the idea of Micaiah being in Smash because a friend really liked the idea... and then I ended up knowing more the character; and I feel in love with her and the idea of see her in Smash :love:
