It's not that he couldn't be fully original. It's just the most likely realistic scenario that Tails did get in Smash. He'd be at best Sonic's Luigi in more ways then one. Like I'm pretty sure they'd at least share a spin dash much like Mario and Luigi share their moves even with different attributes
So far, the only times that we've gotten more than one character for a third party franchise, that character was a clone. While that could easily change, if it's a choice between Tails as a (semi-)clone or no Tails at all, I'd prefer the first one. (plus, he was similar to Sonic in games like Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, or Sonic Adventure 1)
I mean, yeah i would rather him as a echo than him not getting in, i just don't think it would really do him justiceSo far, the only times that we've gotten more than one character for a third party franchise, that character was a clone.

I know right? Tails seems more less like clone material than Shadow and Metal Sonic would be. The latter two makes more sense to be a Sonic Echo than Tails does.
I had a similar idea lately as well. Not complaining, but if we do get an additional Sega rep in Fighters Pass 2, we might get a Shadow a deluxe mii costume. Bomberman's mii costume is just an edit of the assist trophy model.Heck even Shadow could've been a special Mii costume, or could still be one in the future when you consider how Bomberman just recently became playable as a costume. I don't want to rely on patterns that aren't there but there's still the possibility of getting a few Assist Trophies as special/deluxe mii costumes, mainly the ones that are around the Mii Fighters' height (Shadow, Dillon, Krystal but with her shorter proportions in SF games after Adventures, etc).
I'd imagine so. As long as Sega is willing to work with the devs of future Smash games then there's a good possibility we can see Tails, as well as other Sonic related content in Smash.And also, does being a deluxe mii costume increase the chances of getting promoted to playable in the next game? And also what is Tails's risk of getting excluded from Smash 6?
Yay!Sephiroth has been confirmed. This is good for Tails' chances, because the fan rule that all 3rd party franchises can only get Echoes as additional representation is dead.
I want more Final Fantasy reps.We still likely have to wait until next game, but yes Sephiroth takes down a major thought process of picking characters. Tails is absolutely going to be a candidate next game.
Technically Eggman is still in for this game Sonic-wise. But I think Sephiroth's likely to be our ONLY 2nd rep in an already represented franchise this game.
i feel bad for sonic. its the 3rd party series thats been around the longest
I agree. Since Tails is already a Mii costume and Knuckles and Shadow are already Assist Trophies, than I figure if we are getting another Sonic rep in this game it's going to be Dr. Eggman.Tails is still probably not getting in, DLC Mii and all, but next time he is absolutely somebody you can't sleep on.
Lmao! So true. People will move the goalpost and say "Only 3rd party villains can get in besides the protagonist because of their importance. The co-protagonists will never get in.".People will still diss Tails and think that the only unique second reps a third party series can get are villains.
