No, she shouldn't. She's not a video game character.
Yeah, about that...

A. Sally is actually the squirrel that pops out of robots in the old games:

The cartoon redesigned the character significantly, but didn't create the character. She literally can be seen in the background of Windy Hills.

B. Amy Rose & Charmy are from a Sonic Manga:

& yet they still appeared in SSB in compacitiy

I think 10 would be the best, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, Eggman, Omega, Amy, Cream, Big, Rouge.
Dude. I main Ken and Street Fighter is one of my favorite games of all time but you don't see me saying how we need the whole SF2 roster... you're clearly biased torwards your favorite series.

Well, okay then. In that case, a squirrel that pops out of a badnik (the game version) isn't an important enough character to be in Smash.

Just two or maybe three, Sonic is massive overdue for a another fighter considering it’s been around since Brawl and it’s one of the biggest series in Smash.

The very thought honestly ridicules me but it’s still a 3rd party franchise so keep the numbers limited.

Yes, she's in the game, but the person who wanted Sally in the game was asking specifically for the one in the comic. And as a far as I know, that version has not appeared in the games.
Also according to the Amy article, the Shogakukan Amy was the inspiration for the games Amy. So, technically speaking, they are not the same character.
I didn't read about Charmy though. I don't like him. He's too annoying.

You're correct! In addition to at least having Tails, Knuckles, Eggman, and Shadow be playable. I would like to have Sally as an assist trophy. I know that everyone would be delighted to see Shadow and Tails's inclusions. But I wonder how they would react to Sally as an assist trophy.

If we're being completely reasonable then I can't see the Sonic franchise having anymore than 3 reps as playable...

With that said I'd totally love to see more reps than that. My most wanted characters would be Tails, Mighty, Espio & Knuckles

However, if there were hypothetically no limits to how many could be added then for me personally I could see the following characters as well;
Silver, Eggman, Shadow, Rouge, Amy, and Blaze.

You could also argue for Metal-Sonic but he's the only one I'd make a true 'Echo' while a couple other characters I'd consider more as 'clones' like when comparing Villager to Isabelle.

Just because it's a trend thus far doesn't mean it's a rule, much less one enforced by Sakurai.
They have had since brawl to put in another playable Sonic character and they insist on doing only new assist trophies regardless. It's pretty safe to assume that it's a soft rule

No. The last DK rep was also in Brawl and we just got King K. Rool. Same for Metroid. And remember when everyone said Banjo-Kazooie was a pipe dream?
