I have a feeling these polls have slight bias to them. Especially since it was super convenient Sora topped all 3 regions last poll and Geno is suddenly the top two in America and Europe in this one.
I just want to know how these polls are being tallied. I feel like we keep seeing polls, but nobody knows a source.

We should really make sure this stuff is sourced.

Eh. It has people talking about Geno. Any pub is good pub as I always say.

Geno is the only third party character I want now.
I really hope he gets in this time.
Rest assured that, at least in this guy's humble opinion, the Bandana Lads deserve their character, too. You guys are so chill, and a new Kirby rep in general would be really hype. Here's to both of us getting our guys in(hopefully sooner rather than later)!
Anyway, on topic...if Geno is in (I don’t think it’s guaranteed but things are looking good) I wonder when they would reveal him. On paper E3 makes sense when that’s where fan favorites Ridley and Banjo were revealed, but he also feels a bit obscure on that front, at least if he’s the only reveal (then again let’s be honest how many people outside of Smash/Metroid diehards know who tf Ridley is compared to the general populace? lol).
I always expected Geno to be revealed in a Smash Direct, if anywhere. Considering how well-known he is for Smash specifically, it just makes sense in my mind. They'll probably reveal someone more iconic like Crash or Master Chief (for example) at E3; save the real "break-the-internet" picks for the biggest gaming event of the year.

I think Geno's chances stand at a solid 80%.
Not as Fighter Pack 5, because I think they were all chosen before Spirits were finalized.
But after the Fighter's Pass, I think Geno is a shoe-in along with Crash Bandicoot.

Really do hope the music theory ends up being true and our wishes comes true. Every mii fighter presentation is going to be nervewracking from this point forward. Surely nintendo would know not to leave a popular character hanging until the every end and get everyone outraged like they did with Isaac... right?.. RIGHT? PLEASE DON'T LET US DOWN NINTENDO. PLEASE.

That's the curse of more DLC characters, our fate isn't truly known until Geno is in or the final one is revealed... which could be two years from now depending on how long they go...

Either we get Geno, or we Get a Geno Mii Costume with some tracks...
I expect the first because of the BoFM remix..
Anyways, Hiatus until November I guess!

Even if they do as good of a job with a Geno costume as they did with Sans, I'll still be disappointed. Every time I bring out my Isaac Mii I get sad. At this point I don't even play it much, in large part because of that sadness.
Even if they upgrade the Mii outfit to the level of Sans' it wouldn't feel right imo. In SMRPG Geno is the fast glass cannon while Mii Gunner is a slow zoner. The two do not match at all besides visuals.
Yeah, I'd take it over nothing but I certainly wouldn't be satisfied.

Star Hill. Why do you ask?
Holy cow, that was quick! Glad somebody recognized her! Yes, it is Joey! :D
Also @ShotoStar: Endgame just blew it out the water. I need to try harder next time.
i think if you want to make it VERY hard you should try using their models and make some weird poses something like jigglypuff from the upside lol

Well, to be fair, Geno has the potential to look good as a Mii costume as long as they make his head an option and not just his hat. There's no possible way to make a Mii look like Isaac with his Mii costume. At best you're gonna get a Mii-faced Goblin-looking, knockoff Isaac.

But yeah obviously Geno being playable would be much cooler.

you'll have to forgive me for being dense - I don't exactly see how that does anything positive or negative to Geno's chances.
ok, re-reading trying to be as morbid as possible and going by the context clues presented in this very thread I think I get it now: you're under the assumption that he means Nintendo chose the DLC this time too. I took it as how Sakurai typically rambles in these columns about things that are far in the past or we already know.

I feel like if DLC beyond the current pass was finalized he would have tweeted about it just like last time.

It's kind of hinted in the Banjo & Kazooie showcase that it could be all third party as Sakurai says he may never have the opportunity to add this many characters again, most likely referring to third party characters. Him saying that he wants push for more collaborations furthers it. With First and Second party characters, it's a lot easier to get them since Nintendo would have shares on the IPs so he'll probably save them for the next game.

What this means for Geno, I think he's still in the green and I think he would have better chance of being either #76 of additional DLC or the more unlikely scenario, Fighter #75 of the fighters pass. With all the evidence for Geno, I feel pretty conflicted for which one he could be.

“Never have a chance to add this many characters again” just seems more like in general rather than third party. Pushing for collaborations means more third parties for sure. I doubt that’s all though.

But who knows. It’s possible.

I honestly can't say Geno's chances are hurt purely on the basis of "Nintendo might have picked the DLC again" when Nintendo picked the Fighter's Pass and the Fighter's Pass had Banjo. Banjo was all but a 100% fanservice pick - compared to Minecraft, the infinitely more "corporate" pick, he does Nintendo no favors. Sakurai literally had to tell us to go play those games on the XBox. Not to mention that I'm still not ready to say Geno definitely isn't Fighter's Pass #5.

I don't think Geno will be a Mii Fighter costume on his own again. Let's think about this for a moment regarding Square Enix, they tend to be fairly stingy with music tied to characters or IPs they own. That, and I don't think Square would go along with a Mii Fighter costume plus 2 music tracks for just 78 cents. Toby Fox was willing to play ball there, but Square Enix is a very different story.

It’d be nice if he just showed up as #5 and we didn’t have to worry anymore.

So the Twitter poll from a few days ago is a fake and it's photo shopped.

We could be in the long run lads! Just never give up hope!

I wouldn't be too worried with what has been said from the leaked Sakurai column. We don't know the full context. Even then, the huge publicity Banjo got when he was revealed, might encourage Nintendo to get another fan favorite in the next wave. Geno is also technically 3rd party. I'm not expecting that many first parties ether, but Geno is in a unique spot of being a 3rd party character that I'd say he's still in the running even if they don't really want to do 1st party characters anymore

Yeah, I don’t know why people are believing any polls that are coming out this past week.

Everyone is going to create fake polls to make it look like the character they want is wanted everywhere.
